Local LGBT-Owned Cosmetic Brand Impacts Atlanta
By: Shyne by Kenni
"I wanted to see something different available to accentuate our lips," Kenni states. "Personally I'm allergic to and have an aversion to some of the ingredients found in mainstream lip brands including coconut and beeswax. I figured I couldn't be the only one, so I created products that are mild but give you the same POP without all the typical irritants found in other products."
Launched on March 1, 2019, the online Shyne by Kenni store has taken the city, and even the country, by storm. With fun flavors, reasonable prices, and added skin care benefits, consumers are notably pleased with this new lip care solution.
"It's perfectly created with all natural ingredients,"
Shyne by Kenni prides itself on giving customers a quality product and a quality experience as they get to know the company and what it stands for. It's evident in the way the owner corresponds with customers and potential customers via the business' social media outlets.
As an LGBT business owner, Kenni is passionate about making a mark in the community with Shyne by Kenni. "I want to show young LGBTQ+ identified individuals that there is value in being YOU and that your gifts and talents are just as important and valuable as any other person's. There are so many talented gay and lesbian individuals in Atlanta [and everywhere] with great ideas, products, and services. Success should know no discrimination on the basis of race, gender, sexual preference, etc."
Currently, Shyne by Kenni has Atlanta excited with its Little Ms. Shyne Contest. This competition is intended to find the youth brand ambassador for the company's Little Ms. Shyne division, a line of youth friendly lip glosses. Local contestants are vying for the title accompanied by a mini photo shoot by local celebrity photographer, Kalika Wade.
When asked what she hoped to accomplish with Shyne by Kenni, Kenni's answer was simple. "The satisfaction of knowing that consumers are happily and safely illuminating their natural beauty."
Shyne by Kenni is currently an online store with upcoming Pop Ups around Atlanta.
