Peaches Monroee Launches Go Fund Me For Her Cosmetics Line

February 20, 2017  |  

Do you remember Kayla Lewis? Maybe you know her as Peaches Monroee? If not, you’ve certainly heard the phrase she created: “On Fleek.” Peaches became internet famous when a 2014 Vine featuring her creating a phrase about the perfection of her eyebrows went viral.

It wasn’t long after that the words “on fleek” started showing up all over the place, in song lyrics, Twitter pages for major brands and on merchandise and apparel. And while that might seem like a good thing, Lewis didn’t see a dime from any of the use off her intellectual property.

And even though, she hasn’t received the credit she deserved, her creativity hasn’t waned. Lewis is attempting to launch her own cosmetics line and is attempting to raise the money through her Go Fund Me page.

She wrote:

Hello Everyone,

Some of you may know me as Peaches Monroee but my name is Kayla. I came up with the phrase/word “Eyebrows on Fleek”. Everyone has used the phrase/word but I haven’t received any money behind it or recognition. But for the most I want to start a cosmetic line and hair line; But I don’t have any money to do so. Maybe this can help me with my wishes and dreams. Iam currently enrolled in college. I’m taking up Nursing…but I also want to make sure I getting the recognition and money I deserve. Any amount can help , Thank you! 

Ps.. if you have any questions, references, etc please email me at peachesmonroee@icloud.com. 

Peaches more than deserves this money, even if just in arrears for the money she didn’t receive for “on fleek.” Furthermore, Chewbacca mom received nearly $500,000 in gifts and scholarships after her video of her laughing in a Chewbacca mask went viral.
