Ok… I love lipstick. I mean I really love lipstick.

I could probably blame my mother and aunt for my obsession. I remember they would wear beautiful reds and plums when I was a little girl, so now I’ve taken on my own passion for lip color. You’ve probably even seen me in a few on Instagram and Snapchat, so imagine my excitement when I heard about this sweet new beauty brand – Mented.

Started by two very fabulous Harvard Business School grads and bffs, KJ Miller and Amanda E. Johnson, Mented gives a girl like me hope. They’re keeping women of color at the forefront of their beauty industry domination and I’m here for it. I’m always looking for something new that makes sense for my skin tone, especially rich nude colors and I couldn’t be more excited to support two brown girls who make other brown girls look even more beautiful.

I think I’m leaning towards purchasing their Capsule Collection. I’ll make sure to keep you all posted but just know they have lipstick  and nail colors to die for, ok that was kinda dark– to live for. I’m looking forward to see how they expand their brand and it looks like the rest of the country is too. <3
