Barbiestylez:  If I started any creative line of something it would be a combination of my children’s names.

I think you should consider your branding > aesthetic, packaging, logo, target demographic and come up with a name that emulates the woman it should attract.

Barbiestylez: you’ve gotten a lot of the creative work / targeting done or at least brainstormed it sounds like. 

If I were you, I’d call it Barbiestylez because you’re creating it for a woman like you and I can think of a few bees and other forum participants who would definitely try your makeup, since we want you to teach us your secrets 🙂 

Just my 2 pennies.

Barbiestylez:  lol! My first thought was of Melt cosmetics when you said opaque. I love their lippies and Lime Crime also.

Barbiestylez: That’s tough. Also, you might have to deal with Mattel legal. Not a fight I’d want. 

What’s your YouTube makeup video channel? Maybe try to leverage that for your branding. 

What about… Sassy or Moxy or B!tch or Confriendant or BossLady or Bossy or GetItGirl or something that shows cutting edge trendy paired with strength and confidence?

Barbiestylez: feel free to save those names for your colors 🙂 happy to help with brainstorming if you want. I work in marketing / branding but not for something as fun as makeup.

Barbiestylez:  I don’t know if there are already cosmetic companies with these names, but I thought color since you said vibrant:

Chroma

Tinct (means tinted with color)

Jezebel (just a fun name that makes me think of a bad girl)

Obviously this is taken but I love the company name Butter. So simple and genius imo!
