Hey SSB Fam!
So, I think I may have found the best company to purchase nude lipsticks from for WOC (especially dark brown skin)! I feel that as a black women, when it comes to nude lipsticks, it’s either you look like a crackhead or you have to somehow make it work. Thankfully, Mented Cosmetics helped me to end that search. Search over!
Mented Cosmetics started because of the same question most of WOC have when it comes to nude lipstick- Where can I find the perfect nude? Founders of the brand KJ Miller and Amanda E. Johnson believes that every woman should be able to find herself in the world of beauty. As stated before, we always have to somehow “make it work”. I know I’m over that! I recently tried 6 lipsticks from the Capsule Collection and no lip liners were needed. In addition to that, all lipsticks are vegan, paraben-free, non-toxic, cruelty free, and proudly made in the USA.
This Capsule Collection features 6 nude lipsticks- Pretty in Pink, Nude LaLa, Dope Taupe, Foxy Brown, Mented #5, and Dark Night. The color selection is everything from your light pink’s to dark brown. When applying, these lipsticks effortlessly glides across your lips distributing an even layer of color. The finish of these lipsticks are extremely creamy and glossy. It gave the perfect amount of color and moisture that my lips needed.
This summer, just know that I’ll be rocking my favorites Dope Taupe and Nude LaLa! Dope Taupe is the perfect nude lipstick for my skin tone. If I’m feeling for of a mauve look, I’ll be rocking Nude LaLa. Either way, it’s nice to know that I can carry this lipstick without relying on a lipliner. Thank you Mented Cosmetics!
I also did a video try-on, watch here!
Keep fighting daily.
