Mented Cosmetics | Nude Lip Glosses for Grown WOC
The thing is, when you purchase from people who understand you, chances of disappointment are extremely low. Mented Cosmetics was founded by two women of color that were tired of feeling left out. They decided to make beauty products that centered to every shade of brown. Since it's summer, I decided to purchase the Lip Gloss Collection.
This company provides products that are vegan, paraben-free, non-toxic, cruelty free, and made in the United States.
The shades are Berry Me, Mauve Over, Send Nudes and Baby Brown.
As you can see, the packaging is really sleek and simple which i admire. I love the detail that they added to make sure the font color of the name of the gloss is in the color of the actual gloss on the packaging. I love that the applicator/lid material is on the matte side because this helps to make it easier to grip.
These glosses taste good! They also smell good; they don't necessarily have a scent that is distinct but I like it. The application is so smooth. The gloss is not sticky at all. It leaves a smooth and really great feeling finish. I was so happy with the pigmentation too!
