I hate that every time drama rolls around that involves a black-owned brand, the entire genre seems to take a hit. I’m not going to get into negativity, but wanted to take this opportunity to post about black-owned makeup brands I absolutely love.
Mented Cosmetics: The first time I used Mented was when my page was fairly new, and they had a DC pop-up. KJ and Amanda were both incredibly helpful and nice to everyone at the booth, and it felt like I was shopping for a new lipstick with my girlfriends. Their shades are some of my favorites, and this year they have been kicking ass with new products. Their foundation is my favorite, and they’re releasing blushes soon. Please note, I am an affiliate with Mented, but started using their products before I ever worked with them or had a code (which really had me flattered because I already loved them!).
