But they don’t represent that street vibe in New York City, or embrace the world that I come from.”

Jones told ESSENCE in a 2017 interview that she enjoyed creating her own lip kits as a child. Her mother, Carmen Bryan, told her it would be a good idea to come out with her own. Jones explained the advice her mom gave her: “You know, you should come out with your own line because now is really the time. Your generation, they’re their own bosses, doing their own thing. Nothing can really get in your way if you’re doing what you love.”
