The Pivot is a weekly series where theGrio explores Black-owned businesses that managed to pivot and bounce back to success despite initially being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In Episode 2, we got the chance to pucker up with Partner and Creative Director of The Lip Bar, Rosco Spears. The Detroit native takes us through how COVID-19 has changed more in her business than lip colors.

The business has continued to grow in popularity and offerings over the past 8 years, serving the greater Detroit area through their downtown storefront, and the rest of the nation via their online store. Coronavirus restrictions have forced some downsizing and changes to the customer experience, but through creativity, quick tutorials, and a pop of color, The Lip Bar hopes to keep our cheeks and our hearts glowing even through trying times.

Check out our first episode above.
