Today we’d like to introduce you to Kayla Boyd. Them and their team share their story with us below:
Kayla Boyd is an Stl native and college student who, like most of us, is trying to figure this thing called life out. From a very young age, she knew she wanted to be an entrepreneur. She’s always had a passion for the beauty industry and started her beauty brand Kayla B Beauty in 2018. Kayla has sensitive skin and was tired of not being able to enjoy certain makeup because of the harsh chemicals in them. Thus, she came up with a brand that allows people to enjoy great products with great ingredients. Her brand is most popular for its lip glosses which are vegan, smooth, and luxurious. Her company strives to help people look and feel their best while also taking care of the skin underneath. Her goal one day is to be a full-fledged cosmetic company in a store near you!
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
In 2019, Kayla B Beauty was posted on The Shade Room. It was great! However, at the time, Kayla B Beauty was still a very small business and although the influx of orders was great, it was a lot to manage alone. At the time Kayla B Beauty also offered custom items which made preparing orders fast even more difficult. It was so hectic that I completely forgot to take pictures to document that progress. Although being posted on The Shade Room was a blessing, I didn’t have the systems and plans in place to keep up with demand efficiently. It was a great experience and one of my biggest lessons.
We’ve been impressed with Kayla B Beauty, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Kayla B Beauty is a beauty brand known for making people happy and keeping lips glossy. All glosses are made with nourishing oils such as vitamin E and coconut oil that help heal and protect the skin. Our formula is guaranteed to make your lips feel smooth and stay hydrated. All glosses are vegan, cruelty-free, and handmade! They have the perfect amount of shine and are absolutely NON-STICKY.
Our products are sensitive skin-friendly and are perfect for any occasion. It warms my heart to hear other people with sensitive skin express how happy our products make them. Usually, when you have sensitive skin your products are boring and bland. With our products, you can wear glitter and pigment with ease and not have to worry about your skin regretting it later. We are mostly known for our glosses but plan to continue to expand into more cosmetic and body care products. We also have a brand ambassador program where now we pay our supporters to promote the products they know and love. I am proud that my brand takes so much pride in product quality and customer service.
We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you?
I don’t believe in luck. I believe in synchronicities. Everything in life happens because it’s supposed to happen. A lot of the time there are lessons behind the storm and the good. I was able to progress in my business because of prayer, connections, and hard work, but luck is not something I would put on my list. Although social media makes having a business seem like a breeze, I can assure you that it is way harder than it seems.
