Our Story

Hi there, and thank you for dropping by! We're so glad you're here.

My name is Barby Espiritu and I am the Founder of Skinzi Cosmetics.

My love affair with matte lipsticks started when I was in my teens. I remember buying my first bullet matte lipstick in high school and blotting it with tissue paper for a super matte effect.

Unfortunately, I suffer from dry lips. After trying various matte liquid lipsticks on the market, I was disappointed to discover how tight and flaky they were as they dried on my lips. 

At that point, I knew that after a long, fulfilling career as a Quality Engineer, it was time to focus on my other passion: cosmetics.

I've always loved makeup and continued to embrace it my entire adult life. I just haven't found a matte liquid lippie that satisfied all of my must-haves.

With my background in Quality Assurance, I started looking for opportunities to improve the unforgiving liquid matte formulas that I'd tried in the past. 

Working with a team of skilled chemists at our ISO/GMP-certified laboratory, we set out to solve the recurring issue I faced with liquid matte lipsticks.

After almost a year of testing and retesting, we are proud to share the result of our hard work - our custom Skinzi matte formula is highly pigmented yet non-drying. Best of all, it met all my requirements for the ideal liquid matte lipstick. It's non-toxic, paraben free, gluten free, cruelty free, has no phthalates and sulfates, vegan - friendly and infused with Vitamin E at a price that won't break the bank. It's also made in the USA at our FDA approved laboratory.

Today, one of our greatest joys is knowing we can make your life a little bit better with our products. At Skinzi, we live to fulfill your expectations. It's at the core of everything we do and injects passion into everything we create.

As you hold your bottle of Skinzi Matte Liquid Lipstick, know that we created this product with the goal of inspiring you to be your most beautiful, confident self.

Peace and love, beauties!
