Last week’s post included moments of Black Joy and with Black History just two days behind us and the on-going celebration of the contributions of past and current people within the Black community, I thought I’d start this post with a list of Black contributors to my lipstick collection. I’ve learned quite a bit, and yes I know you’re thinking, “Temeka, isn’t this supposed to go on the list for The Black Owned Part 3 post?” and My answer to that is ‘Love, stay tuned and hold tight’, I’m building that list slowly and surely. Firstly, here is the current list you too can also frequent. I know you’ll enjoy them too. In no particular order.
Black Owned List
PAT McGRATH, FentyBeauty, PabaCosmetics, Juvia’s Place, ColouredRaine, Secrets by Danika Battieste, Bourgie Cosmetics, Pop of Love Beauty, Nagi Cosmetics, Black Up, The LipBar, MFMG (MakeUp For Melanin Girls)
As you can see, I sooooo need to add to this list, so school me and share some of your favourite Black Owned Lippy Creators with me please. I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences with you.
PLANS! and then some…
Well I’m excited for the next couple of posts. I will be conducting a couple of experiments for a short series called Will It Last? and I can’t wait to show you. Because we seemed to be stuck in this pandemic world, I think it will be beneficial to have the mask-talk🙄…we will be alright (just keep saying this to yourself. We’re going to be alright, we’re going to be alright…). And if you’re like me, you’ve put on and taken off the pounds more times that you’ve changed out of your lounge clothing. I’ve been cooking, baking, ordering in, snacking, and trying to drink way more water than ever so I’ve also counted all of the tiles in my bathroom too since I’m so acquainted with it…being healthy and hydrated is a whole job in itself😫. So it’s also time we brought lipstick into the equation. And just because we’re in pyjama bottoms for all of those virtual calls, that doesn’t mean we’re not dressing up our pouts and video time gives us an opportunity to use everything in our makeup drawers or bags, or whatever you store your goodies in or at least try to act like you still get to dress up for…something. Will It Last part 2 will let me eat and show you what works and what doesn’t.
And lastly, don’t forget to follow me here for the Colours of the Season- Spring. I cannot wait for Spring and maybe because it means patios could be a thing again and warmer weather means I can stay outside without the faux fur hood and thick boots and maybe I can see people in person and wear amazing lipstick…just maybe. And even though I really miss the heat of the sunshine, you can miss me with the bugs. It’s the brightness and the anticipation of Summer that I’m really excited about.
Yes this was a shorter post, but I wanted to keep it real while keeping you the loop. It’s an in between week and I wanted to finish up the work needed to report back to you, my loves. Any who, I’ll see you right back here next Tuesday. Tell everyone you know and don’t forget to share your Black Owned list with me too. I doubt that I know it all. I’ll see you on the gram @thelipstickblogger you can DM or tag me there or follow me here. Don’t forget to #wearitlikeyoumeanit and mean it when you do.💋
