Video: Introducing Mented Cosmetics + Rant

mented-cosmeticsRedefining ‘nude’ lipstick for women of color, by women of color.

Hi Guys! Today’s video is a try on haul of the capsule collection of Nude lipsticks for women of color (by women of color) from Mented Cosmetics! Redefining what ‘nude’ means- this range has all the brown babes covered from the lightest peach to the deepest berry. These are not your ultra light nude shades, but more of a natural looking color. The formula is moisturizing, and long lasting, made without parabens or toxins, and also vegan and cruelty free.

Note: There is one more lipstick in the capsule collection called ‘Dope Taupe’ that I forgot to swatch because I had just worn it and it was in my purse! It is a beautiful rich taupe-y color. The entire capsule collection can be purchased as a set too for a discount. Also, to receive 15% off  your first order, you can use my code: http://fbuy.me/iCqcd

I also had a moment of weakness due to some triggers I had just before recording, and I did a little rant about it. Looking back I am glad I got it off my chest, and based on the response I got from you all – you also feel my pain! After having some time to think about things though, I feel like I didn’t need to be so upset. I have SO MANY amazing readers and supporters, friends and family too. It is really just a matter of what I put my energy towards – i can cry myself a river about the few that aren’t or I can focus on the ones who are and keep doing better for them. I guess sometimes you need to throw your own pity party before realizing how good you actually have it!

Thanks so much for visiting – as always!
