LilMissChitChat - Who is Shadasia Lloyd? How would people close to you describe you?
Shadasia - A nice, sweet, caring person from Harlem, NY. I’m an only child…. very loyal and dependable. A lot of people think I’m quiet but I’m really not. A lot of people are actually really surprised when I talk?
LilMissChitChat - What does Saditty Lips mean to you?
Shadasia- Thats really my baby. I’m so in love with my brand. I look at my logo like “wow sis wtf you got”. I did so many things this year alone. I was working three jobs and I had to quit two of them; just to focus up. I was literally setting alarms to remember to post on the Sanity Lips Instagram page.
LilMissChitChat - What females inspire you on a daily?
Shadasia - @AprilDivahStyles , @IamMilanRouge @Dollhousepretty
LilMissChitChat - What do you think is the hardest part about being a business owner?
Shadasia - It seems like everybody is doing the same thing so you have to try and figure out how to be different. Anybody can sell lipgloss so I have to make sure I standout.
LilMissChitChat- What does the word “saditty” mean to you?
Shadasia - Bourgeoisie and ratchet but still together and educated…. Just having good balance.
LilMissChitChat - Who would you like to see wearing your lipgloss?
Shadasia - Beyonce obviously lol… but realistically on a smaller scale Teyana Taylor, she’s from Harlem. April Divah Styles.
LilMissChitChat- If you dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be?
Shadasia - Jay-z.. He’s smart. He’s from the projects but really built his way up. A hood n*gga turned good. He does good things for the community. I want that conversation.
LilMissChitChat - If you had to choose between true love and the peak of your business, what would you choose?
Shadasia - I would choose my business overtime. Even if you find true love things can always go left. Your business is your baby. You control the vibe. I like the control I have with my business.
LilMissChitChat - If you were allowed to have one superpower, what would you do?
Shadasia - Read minds because you need to know how people really think and feel.
LilMissChitChat - What do you think sets your cosmetic line aside from others?
Shadasia - Everything is all natural. We don’t test on animals. That’s actually why I’m facing a small obstacle right now. We changed up the formula this time around and it’s waiting to be approved by the FDA.
LilMissChitChat - What advice would you give to a girl looking to start a business?
Shadasia - Stick with it. Take your time, don’t rush. Don’t feel pressured. Don’t worry about other people’s opinions too much. Finish the product and then announce the launch.
LilMissChitChat - Who do you consider an influential person in your life?
Shadasia - Right now I would say you. If it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t have really started my business. You really taught me how to move.
LilMissChitChat - Where do you hope to be in 5 years?
Shadasia - Not working for no one but myself. If I follow my 5 year plan, I’ll have my storefront and really be living out my dream.
LilMissChitChat - What is your ultimate goal?
Shadasia- A chain of Saditty Lips all over.
