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.

Something that I try to mention, as much as possible, especially when it comes to married and long-term couples is, if you want to go the distance, it's not just the "big things" that you've got to stay up on; it's the little things too. Something as simple as you being a morning person while your partner is a night owl can affect everything from quality of sleep to quality time to your sex life. That's why, when it comes to couples who have different sleep patterns who still want to have a fulfilling sexual dynamic, I'm all about encouraging them to do what is at the foundation for all successful relationships — compromise. Sometimes that means that an alarm clock needs to be set or someone needs to initiate some, umm, stuff (more on that in a bit) in order to get the juices flowing (pun intended and not intended).

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"
