Stiks Cosmetiks was conceived and designed here in NY, and is the brainchild of astute business woman, Laura Heilman, a marketing executive and single mum of 3 boys. Laura recognized the need for novel and intuitive cosmetic packaging that didn't sacrifice femininity for function. Leveraging her own experience with lipstick along with the gripes of women all over, she set out to redesign the shape of cosmetic packaging to become easier, quick, convenient, while maintaining some semblance of femininity. In the process, she democratized makeup for all, starting with a lipstick, so that all women/men of all ages, colors, styles and types can text and apply at the same time. No longer does one have to fuss over beauty!
Laura has long been known for being solution oriented and seeking the fastest and most efficient way to get things done, while her aesthetic is simple, different and cool. STIKS translates Laura's 'simplicity' philosophy cleverly into a differentiated product proposition with a strong point of view on the market and strategic design that encompasses all facets of the lipstick.
Stiks Cosmetiks has beautifully translated the long held irks of women who apply lipstick on-the-go and interpreted them into a modern, androgynous and non-conformist functional designed lipstick.
