In honor of National Lipstick Day, we’re spotlighting four Black-Owned beauty brands that you should get today to celebrate! Started in 2016 by Huda Kattan, this day is still fairly new, but lipstick has been around for centuries. It is said that the first lipstick recorded in history is dated from 2500 B.C.-1000 B.C.and was made from crushed stones.
However, today we are talking about some Black-owned brands in 2022 that we can check out and support!
Get pretty below! Note, all of the ladies are wearing their own brands of lipstick in their photos.
Beau Tie Cosmetics/ Tie Cooper
Beau Tie Cosmetics products are created with an elegant and wonderfully comfortable formula enriched with moisture, creaminess, and a supremely melting effect that gives a lovely feeling of hydration and protection that is retained for hours. A perfectly balanced lightweight formula with a smooth satin-like flawless texture lip embellishment. This lipstick offers effortless precision and seamless application for day or night, a symbol of sophistication!
The creator, Tie Cooper, is a philanthropist, makeup artist, and beauty editor with more than 14 years of high-level experience and training. She has worked with celebrities and has led events and national campaigns with some of the world’s largest brands, such as Revlon, Nike, Bronner Brothers, and Creme of Nature, to name a few.
Nothing is more beautiful than a woman who believes she is beautiful… and the perfect lipstick, of course. – Tie Cooper, CEO of BeauTie Cosmetics
The Candy Lady Cosmetics/Brandi Gray
The Candy Lady Cosmetics is a beauty brand that extends beyond its product line of pigmented palettes and lipsticks.CEO Brandi Gray believes there’s beauty in the community, and she thought back to her community as a child. One particular figure stood out. Growing up, The Candy Lady was a staple in the neighborhoods of New Orleans and a fierce entrepreneur at the heart of it all.
She served the community with sweet treats, and so does The Candy Lady Cosmetics. The company has a passion for reminding women that YOU define what beauty looks like. Their products are for the beauty beginner and extend to the professional MUA.
Giving back is at the heart of The Candy Lady Cosmetics brand, and donating to teachers, women, and youth is always a pleasure. Community is their beauty.
Put on some lipstick and live a little, sis!- Brandi Gray, CEO of The Candy Lady Cosmetics
Possible Cosmetics/ Renata Eileena
Possible Cosmetics is based out of the United States. Believing that everyone should have access to convenient products at affordable price tags is the reason CEO Renata Eileena only selects all of its products after extensive research to ensure that its inventory is filled with items that fit its vision.
Possible Cosmetics is, in essence- an interactive, online company with an emphasis on the word “interactive.” Since the conception of the brand, Renata and the company’s main goal was to create amazing products that their customers could be a part of creating with them.
Put on some lipstick and hustle! What’s a girl without her lipstick 💄 for most girls Diamonds 💎 are a girl’s best friend, but for me, a perfect red matte lip is mine! – Renata Eileena
Rich in Color Cosmetics/Shalena Edwards
Shalena Edwards is a wife, mother of five, and ex-beauty business executive. While Shalena was attending a beauty industry conference, she was complimented on having beautifully rich skin; however, the presence of only two women of color at the conference fueled the idea of Rich in Color Cosmetics. She has observed how most beauty products are not made to suit women of color.
Deeper skin complexions get few options, even with huge product lines. She decided to make an inclusive brand, and as a beauty brand executive, she knew exactly what was lacking in the industry.
She created a brand that is for everyone but gives special attention to rich melanin skin. Since then, there has been no going back; the brand has been well-received by beauticians and makeup lovers who believe in two mantras, RICH and LUXE!
Here at Rich In Color Cosmetics, there is a shade of red for EVERY woman. From bright reds to #sultry and #shimmery Berries, the line goes on and on for the #RichGirls. – Shalena Edwards, CEO of Rich in Color Cosmetics
