Sadly as we approach the end of our seventh year of providing Lip Inks to the UK and some European (and even further afield) clients we find that we can no longer get our stock from the USA unless we are willing to operate on a 25% discount. Given our overheads which are fairly modest, even so this makes running the UK business non-viable. We also have to face producing Toxicity reports on all our products in order to comply with the EU legislation. So far no-one can provide us with any estimate of what this might cost - making us even more non-viable!
Over the years we have endeavoured to provide first class service to our clients as we believed we were offering them a lifetime service.....!! Pity our suppliers did not feel the same way.
When Rose Nichols, Lip Ink International CEO started out in 1995 she was in partnership with Joni Rogers Kante who went on to found her own company SeneGence that created LipSense and who have recently acquired a franchise operation in the UK. So in an endeavour to give our long standing clients some continuity we have spent sometime matching their colours to those of Lip Ink.so that we can make our best recommendation as to how you might obtain a similar colour/product. Christina, will also do her best to offer her guidance to 'old Lip Ink clients'.

I suspect it will be sometime before I do vanish entirely into the sunset for my long anticipated retirement - promised over three years ago to my long suffering husband who recently celebrated his 80th Birthday. He feels I should be lavishing the same care on him that many of your have benefitted from over the years. As a farmer's daughter that was made responsible for 2000 laying poultry and 1000 pullets at age 10 I feel that I have earned that retirement.It will be a strange day that dawns without something I MUST do after 60+ years! Lip Ink UK was my fourth 'enterprise' and they have always meant looking after the public and I have always believed that one should 'do as would be done by'. That has worked well for me over the decades and it has been rare indeed that my trust has been misplaced - I thank you all for your considerable loyalty.
