Cost to Start Lipstick Line:

How much does it cost to start a lipstick line? If you’re looking to start a lipstick line with Auraline Beauty, then you can expect to pay about $7.23 for a liquid to matte lipstick with one color logo. There may be an additional charge depending on the shades you select and the total quantity ordered. The minimum order is 48 units per same-style packaging, but you may mix and match different shades of the same product from a wide variety of vibrant colors.

For a 48-piece lipstick collection (12 pieces per shade, 4 shades), the cost would be $347.04 plus shipping. All setup and printing fees are included.

If you would like boxes for the lipsticks, you can purchase those separately at $2.28 per box with one color logo. For 48 boxes, the cost would be $109.44. Auraline Beauty will place the lipsticks into their printed boxes before shipping.

We suggest four to six shades per release, especially if this is your first launch. This allows you to save other shades—particularly seasonal hues—for future launches.

At Auraline Beauty, we offer a diverse range of creative, high-quality lipsticks and glosses that can be branded as your own private cosmetics line. We’ve spent years perfecting formulas and pigments so you can provide the very best in beauty to your own following. Many of our private label clients like to start by ordering a sampler kit so they can handpick their favorite products and shades. Some of the lip sample kits we offer include:
