#2) Shortlist your ideas

Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.

Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:

  • Is the name simple and easy to remember?
  • Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
  • Is the name different from competitors?
  • Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
  • Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great lipstick business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

Lipology

This name is short, unique, attention-grabbing and brandable.

The Lipstick Maven

The name conveys a business that can be trusted to provide the best lipsticks.

Gloss Goddess

The words rhyme making the name unique, catchy and easy to remember.

Sweet Lips

The name conveys a product that feels pleasant and classy on your lips.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great lipstic business names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful lipstick businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Benefit Cosmetics Logo | BusinessNameGenerator.com

Benefit Cosmetics is a very befitting name for a lipstick business. This name has been very successful since it gives customers the sense that they will be getting a lot of benefits from using their products.

Bobbi Brown Logo

Bobbi Brown achieves a personal connection with customers by including the founder’s names in the business name. This works very well since it helps to build trust and gain unmeasurable customer loyalty. The name also sounds professional and is very brandable.

Charlotte Tilbury Makeup Logo

Charlotte Tilbury Makeup also achieves a personal connection with customers by including the founders’ names in the business name. Customers are more likely to trust this business since they feel like they are dealing with a real person and, therefore, more confident of their purchasing decisions.

5 Tips for naming your lipstick business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

1. Do a Competitor Analysis

Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:

  • What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
  • Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
  • Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?

2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.

A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused terms. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.

Let’s take for example a lipstick business named “The Sweet Lips”.

Literally, this name conveys the product makes your lips sweet to taste. At a deeper level though, this is a great name that shows how the product will make your lips admirable and good to look at.

3. How to make a more memorable name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Lips line)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context.
  • Keep it short and simple.

4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name

Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable Lipstick business names could be:

  • Nuvane Lipstick
  • Alomos Lipstick
  • Nurilo Lipstick

You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com

5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.

Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Bumble Lipstick and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like BumbillLipstick, Bumblestick or BummbleLipstick.

You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
