LIP INK International is an American cosmetic technology company headquartered in El Segundo, California that creates, manufactures, and sells wax-free smearproof color cosmetics. Having reinvented cosmetics with the first wax-free alternative to traditional lipstick LIP INK holds multiple international patents for it’s technology.
The company was founded on January 1, 1995, by Inventor, Mother, and Lip Diva Rose Nichols in 1995. Lip Ink’s International’s revolutionary concept began with Rose’s senior thesis project in Merchandise Marketing at FIDM-LA. (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) It has since grown into a multi-million dollar international enterprise. Rose set out to invent an extraordinary Wax Free, Semi-Permanent Liquid Lip Color because she was tired of her old fashioned lip color coming off on her teeth, clothes, coffee cups, and food. Rose wanted lip color ink that would stay on until she was ready to take it off. She wanted the staying power of ink, without being ink.
CEO, Mother, Inventor, and Lip Diva, Rose Nichols created the first batch of Liquid Lip Color in her own kitchen. She continues to handcraft each color in small batches using only the finest ingredients money can buy; exquisite natural herbs and botanicals that encourage the exfoliation of dead skin cells, revealing softer, smoother lips. Rose was born in California, a born inventor, single mother of one daughter, twice married, spiritual seeker, Bohemian artist, vegetarian, industry innovator, inspirational speaker, successful President who combines her artistic vision, tenacious spirit, and business savvy into her semi-Permanent cosmetic company Lip Ink International. Rose shines in her demonstratable splendor of magic, beauty, and wonder in providing and endless choice of colors. Not only did she create what just might be the most original color line on the planet to date, but she also inspires woman to be unique and creative in their own personal beauty. Rose wants all women to experience being an original, one-of-a-kind goddess with her own unique color on her lips.
Unlike most lipsticks that are waxy and coats lips, Rose’s Lip Ink is sheer, and has a quick-setting formula has the consistency of water but has the feel of bare lips. Meaning, you will forget you have it on until you look in the mirror. The Lip ink Color applies smoothly and easily, offering time-saving, confidence–building solution for active women.
Lip Ink uses healthy ingredients, and is backed by multiple patents and industry awards. Lip-Ink cosmetics include Liquid Lip Color, Miracle Brow, Eye Liner, Lip Liners, Tinted Shine, Off (remover), Magic Powders and many other accessories.

Another form of lip color, a wax-free, semi-permanent liquid formula, was invented in the 1990s by the Lip-Ink International company. Other companies have imitated the idea, putting out their own versions of long-lasting "lip stain" or "liquid lip colour."
