Hi, my name is Renee. I created this blog to share a journey I recently embarked upon to turn an idea into a product. Sounds a bit crazy, right? I kinda feel that way. I came up with a product idea a couple years ago and put it on the back-burner mostly due to the fear. But now I am ready to give it a go and I want to bring you along for the ride.
Being a woman who frequently travels for work, I found it challenging to find the perfect product for beauty on-the-go.
I was searching for a palette that housed the basics for eyes, cheeks, and lips. In addition to quality make-up, I wanted essential accessories such as brushes and a tweezer to be included. It surprised me to find there wasn’t a product on the market that truly matched my vision. After some complaining, my husband insisted I make my vision a reality. That’s how the concept for Reva’s Love was born.
Reva’s Love is my opportunity to take control and fill a gap. I want to create an all-in-one palette not only perfect for travel, but also for everyday events. As women, our days are jam-packed with all sorts of events that may require a little touch up here and there.
What’s better than having a sleek, compact palette that goes as you do. And to make it even better the palette is refillable and customizable.
Like most people today, the first place I went to for details on how to start this journey was the Internet. I searched“How to start a cosmetics line?” “How to manufacture cosmetics?”, How to create your own makeup?” and the list kept going.
I found sites that provided general information but lacked the details I wanted. At that point, I decide if I were to pursue this idea, I will create a blog to share the details my experience. In comes, Reva’s Love: The Journey, The Life.
Reva’s Love – The Journey, The Life
In The Journey, I will share the details and steps I am taking to build and launch a brand from the ground – the good, the bad and the ugly. My posts with include topics exploring such things as market research or the patent process. Most of all, I hope by bringing you along with me, I can make a product that not only suits my needs but also yours.
In addition to The Journey, I will share details about The Life… Yea, my life. I think it would only be fair for you also to get to know me – the person behind the magic. Ha! (charming aren’t I). The Life topics will range across a variety of topics. It’s hard to box my into just a few categories so I will share them all.
About The Name
The name Reva’s Love is a tribute to my late grandmother, Revalyn. She continues to be an inspiration and motivation in my life. I know if she were alive today she would be my biggest cheerleader encouraging me along the way. She was a fighter and a go-getter. Through Reva’s Love, I am the person I am today.
I am not sure how The Journey will end, but I know the only way to find out is to start.
