Can you use some black-owned lip colors for National Lipstick Day? Blaq Vixen Beauty is on the case! Makeup on model Chasity Samone by Keita Moore (@kilprity).
Happy National Lipstick Day! A few years ago, I rounded up a quick list featuring best selling MAC pink lipstick colors on black women. This year, I want to help put black-owned makeup brands (BOMBs) in the spotlight.
There are five lip colors I think every woman should own: a notable nude; a reliable red; a preppy pink; a werk it wine; and a vivacious violet. With this aim in mind, I sought out photos of celebrities wearing five popular black-owned lip colors. If you’re looking to support more beauty brands that are for us, by us, keep reading:
