Our clientele are women of all shades and backgrounds. We just pay special attention to ensuring our shades will suit the need of all Melanin Queens.
What inspired you to start your brand
Being a woman of color, my biggest challenge was finding lipstick shades that would suit my melanin skin tone. I stepped in and decided to become one of the pioneers to help fill this gap in the industry. Don’t get me wrong, as you can see on our website and social media pages, our clientele are women of all shades and backgrounds. We just pay special attention to ensuring our shades will suit the need of all Melanin Queens. There was a need in the industry that happened to be a need for me as well. This inspired the launch of Alexander Pierre.
What is the brand’s philosophy?
Our brand’s philosophy is that we are all Queens. Carry yourself like royalty and people will treat you as such. Alexander Pierre – Made for Queens.
What has been your greatest achievement so far?
I know this sounds corny and typical but being a mom is my greatest achievement. I’m at every football game, gymnastic competition, dance recital, field trip, musical play and everything my babies are part of.
This is no easy feat for someone who has a demanding career. And yet I do everything possible to be a fully engaged hands-on mother while juggling a career. Even if that means losing sleep. It doesn’t feel like work when you love it. So yes, it’s definitely my greatest accomplishment.
