On Season 12 of Shark Tank, ophthalmologist Dr. Anika Goodwin Hilderbrand pitched her beauty business, Opulence MD, a line of magnetic and cruelty-free mink eyelashes. Most false eyeglasses rely on glue to adhere to eyelids.
Dr. Hilderbrand went into the Tank seeking an investment of $75,000 in exchange for five percent equity. She left with a deal with guest Shark jewelry designer Kendra Scott: $100,000 for 20 percent.
Since the Opulence MD Shark Tank episode originally aired in March 2021, Opulence MD continues to promote itself with gorgeous models including beauty pageant winners (see below).
Shark Tank airs Fridays at 8 pm and Saturdays at 9 pm on ABC. [BONUS: Stream any ABC show through the ABC GO Digital App found here. Download is FREE.]
