The Beauty Closet - Home Page

Is it just us, or does it feel like a never-ending struggle to find an actual brown shade for your skin?


Some look ashy, others look too dark. Some look too pink, and others...well, we don't know what they are. Brown lipsticks and brown liners have been in our purses for years, so the fact that it's taken THIS long to get it right is just downright sad.

Thankfully, a lot more Black-owned brands and staple beauty brands in our beauty arsenal have finally started hearing our pleas and are giving us options. So if you want a brown lipstick to add to your collection (girl, because we know you do), then check out some of our most recent faves:

Pat McGrath Mattetrance Lipstick

Y'all know we stan for Pat, but sometimes that price point can stress us out a bit. Get into her MatteTrance lipsticks, though, if you're ready to take the plunge (and support black makeup artists!).

Is it just me or does it seem like, these days, folks are used to just throwing words and phrases out without really understanding what they mean? Take being a free spirit, for example. While some people may be spontaneous (at times), like to take risks or even be a lot of fun to be around, that doesn't automatically or necessarily make them a free spirit.
