Brown Girls rejoice and praise the makeup gawds. There’s a line of nude lipsticks made specifically for us, by us. Fed up with not being able to find the perfect nude lipstick, KJ Miller and Amanda E. Johnson created Mented Cosmetics “because when it comes to beauty, no one deserves to be an afterthought.” You can say that again sistahs. I’d like to thank you both personally from saving us from the Tyrone Biggums look. The brand sent over the Mented Cosmetics Nude Lipsticks Capsule Collection ($89 for 6) for me to show you guys.
The Capsule Collection is a bundle of six nude shades ranging from flirty pink to bomb brown. The lipsticks has the texture and moisturizing power of a balm, and pigmentation of a lipstick. It glides on smooth like butter and feels so good on the lips. But it also wears like a balm so it’s not long lasting. You will need to touch it up about every two hours, or after a meal.
Pretty in Pink (light brown based pink)
Nude Lala (brown based pink)
Dope Taupe (pink based brown)
Mented #5 (blend of brown, purple, and pink)
Foxy Brown (red based brown)
Dark Knight (dark chocolate brown)
My favorite shade is Dark Knight. It looks like whipped hot chocolate on the lips. I’m overall impressed with Mented Cosmetics Nude Lipsticks. The brand did well with creating shades that will work for all hues of brown skin. Without making us look ashy or hungry. Mented also has some glosses, nail polish and accessories. I’m really looking forward to some nude moisturizing mattes from the brand. I know they’ll be bomb af! Fingers crossed we’ll see some soon. Mented Cosmetics lipsticks are vegan, paraben free, non toxic, cruelty free, and made in the USA.
