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!

Two things I missed most while being away from home are also the things I often complain about: 1) cooking my own food and 2) watching children’s programming -- I seriously bawled watching Coco today and it was my 574763 time watching it 😂 (but for real if you haven’t seen it you should it’s SO good) #ootd #leopard #summerstyle
  • The ‘hurry up and take the picture so I can eat’ face 😂. Also - a fly may or may not have landed on one of these babies (sitting outside probs) and I may or may not have still eaten it 🙈🤷🏾‍♀️ #sorrynotsorry #sashimi #noms

  • Our trip is almost over so that means eating all kinds of weird combinations of food we bought because I HATE leaving anything behind. I take it as a personal cooking challenge - am I just a freak or anyone else do it too? 🙈🤷🏾‍♀️#beachbabes #mommyandme #vacaystyle
  • My entire makeup bag fell into the toilet thanks to a little help from curious Sophia... 😫🤢 but I’m still smiling because: funnel cakes. Also what is your favorite brand of makeup brush?

  • I’m so honored to be featured on @yahoostylebeauty today talking about modest fashion from the Muslim perspective - along with some major boss ladies I truly admire! I feel like as Muslim women we are constantly trying to prove to the world that we are not a stereotype or monolith, we are individuals - with nuances, we have different ways of expressing our faith and modesty. This article does a great job of showcasing our diversity. Check it out - link in my bio! #muslimwomen #modestfashion #chicagoblogger 📸 @jamieberg
