On Season 12 of Shark Tank, entrepreneur Melissa Clayton from Acton, Massachusetts pitched her patented beauty organizer space saver, The Matte. It’s designed to unfold over a bathroom sink and work like an extra sturdy counter. Melissa went into the Tank seeking an investment of $100,000 in exchange for 20 percent equity.
Melissa had the good fortune of pitching in front of Lori Greiner who invested $200,000 in Makeup Junkie Bags, a collection of lay-flat cosmetic and travel bags. Melissa accepted Lori’s offer of $100,000 for 33.3 percent equity.
Since The Matte Shark Tank episode originally aired in April 2021, The Matte continues to receive 5-star reviews on Amazon including this one: “nice and sturdy, holds my makeup spread out for me while covering my tiny sink to make counter space for me. makes getting ready in the morning a breeze since im not worried about dropping lids/caps or small sponges into my sink anymore.”
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.]
