8 Black-Owned Beauty Lines That Will Keep Your Lip Gloss Poppin'

Beauty & Fashion

Lip gloss was the first makeup product I was ever allowed to use.


From the roll-on version in the beauty supply (cherry was my favorite) to MAC's Lip Glas my mom let me wear to my tenth grade homecoming dance — lip gloss has been my day one. Over the last couple of years, I've traded my gloss in for full coverage lipsticks, but I'm now leaning to gloss again since you can reapply without a mirror and you don't have to worry about it taking up space on your teeth. My guess is that there are thousands of options on the market, but I wanted to focus on the brands made by black women.

Here are eight beauty brands that will keep your lip gloss poppin' any day of the week.
