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.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. College students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather and partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there's plenty to see and do! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

We all know the feeling. You plop down in a stylist's seat excitedly waiting for your slay to begin, only to be met with a look of panic when they actually lay eyes on your hair. As a woman with thick and coarse 4C textured hair, I know that gaze well. Sadly, so do most Black women, and it's been an ongoing problem in the entertainment world for decades.

Sevyn Streeter recently released her latest album Drunken Wordz Sober Thoughtz and it's sexy. I'm talking, you may add a few songs to "the playlist," sexy. A few of my favorite tracks are "Change My Mind," "Nasty Girl," and "Wet Dreams." And while this album is definitely a mood-setter, I realize that I connect most of her songs with special moments or memories. When I belt out "B.A.N.S.," I'm really yelling at my ex. And when "It Won't Stop" is on repeat, it's because it's because I'm daydreaming of a relationship that makes me feel as free and beautiful as that song. But, in my opinion, that's what music is supposed to do, make you feel, escape, and think.
