Mission Statement

CHANGING THE WAY LUXURY LOOKS

KOLORETE is the only lip care brand that caters to the needs of the under-represented AAPI community. However, the KOLORETE formula works well for people of all backgrounds.

We believe high-quality should be available to ALL people, not just a select few: skin tones, gender identities, and sexual orientations. We don’t believe in one, singular ‘luxury look.’ You have inherent value and worth (with or without us). We believe YOU define what luxury looks like on you. 

At KOLORETE, we want to bring ‘high-quality’ ingredients back to the luxury beauty market and expand the image of luxury goods to work for everyone.

We also believe that luxury and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. We are deeply committed to sustainability in packaging using only the highest quality compostable, recycled, upcycled, recyclable, and consciously-traded materials.

Vision Statement

LUXURY FITTING YOU

Our vision is to make luxury lip care accessible to all people. 

Everyone deserves better lip care and high quality treatment no matter who or what you are. We are committed to disrupt the luxury cosmetics market by representing diversity, equity and inclusion, developing well-edited luxury lip essentials made from high quality, healthy, and natural formulations, and becoming your #1 go-to brand for your instant clean-glam look.
