Project Description

LAMIK Beauty is natural organic color cosmetic for women of color. As a brick and mortar store in Houston, we touched every woman who came with a need. We learned her, we love her. In 2018, our founder Kim Roxie felt the pull to offer LAMIK Beauty to women across the globe. So she closed the store to launch a high growth startup business which is LAMIK Beauty 2.0.

 

Help us work toward the next move. Launching LAMIK Beauty online as the premier e-commerce destination for women of color, with a subscription model that will deliver clean cosmetics just when you need them. 

 

 

 

 

The research is there, it’s plain. What we wear affects our health. LAMIK Beauty has always been clean, natural and organic. For us, it’s a way to care for our customers, to give you the best. 

 

 

 


"64% of women of color prefer natural beauty products."

-Mintel

 

 

 

 

 

We have but one earth, we aim to be the best stewards we can. Each choice is made based on how it will function for our products and if it is reusable and recyclable. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Women of Color spend 9X as much on beauty products than their non-women of color counterparts"

-Nielsen

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s our passion! 

Our Founder, Kim Roxie, began her career searching for products for women of color. When she couldn’t find them, she made them. As she traveled, she met more and more women searching for clean products just for them, with colors and textures that compliment a wide array of skin tones. 

 

 

 

"Women of Color spend 80% more on cosmetics, but only get 10% shelf space."

-Mintel

 

 

 

For the past 18 months, we have prepared for this. Kim has done an immense amount of work with the goal of building the company and fundraising. 

  • 3 Accelerators

Two disappointing things she has learned as a female founder of a beauty tech-enabled startup raising funding:

  1. 0.002% of black women get venture funding for their startups.
  2. Most accredited investors I've been introduced to are men who underestimate me and you.

 

 

 

"Recognized as one of the Top 25 startups to watch in 2019"

-Silicone Hill News

 

 

 

 

We are gearing up to launch LAMIK Beauty online as the premier e-commerce destination for women of color, with a subscription model that will deliver clean cosmetics just when you need them.

Most of the funds from this campaign will go toward bringing LAMIK Beauty 2.0 to life. Our team is also privately raising investment from angel investors and small firms to grow what we're building at a faster scale. If you're interested in learning more about how to get involved, you should email hello@lamikbeauty.com

 

Our first release of LAMIK of 2.0 will look like:

  • New & improved E-Commerce website
  • New & improved product formulations
  • Subscription program creation
  • Rebranding Campaign

 

 

 

 

As women, we are self-sufficient. We can do so much for ourselves. 

Let's show them our power, that we can fund our ventures. That we are here. Let's show them who we are!

 

 

 

“Our research shows that Women of Color consumer choices have a ‘cool factor’ that has created a halo effect, influencing not just consumers of color but the mainstream as well,”

-Nielsen
