Mented Cosmetics is a black-owned makeup brand that specializes in formulating nude lipsticks for women of color. This brand was birthed from a conversation between the two Mented Cosmetics founders, K.J. Miller & Amanda E. Johnson. They were discussing their struggle for finding nude lipsticks that complimented their skin’s complexion and realized that there were very few options that catered to this very specific niche. Black women in America spend $7.5 billion per year on beauty products. We should not be considered an afterthought when it comes to providing products that will suit the needs of black women. “We created Mented Cosmetics because we believe every woman should be able to find herself in the world of beauty.”
Currently, Mented Cosmetics carries 6 amazing shades, Dark Night, Dope Taupe, Foxy Brown, Mented #5, Pretty In Pink, and Nude LaLa. These are all shades that can be worn on any occasion by the fairest of skin tones to the darkest of complexions.
All of their nude lipstick shades retails at an affordable cost of $16.50 and can be purchased on their website at www.MentedCosmetics.com. Be sure to follow Mented Cosmetics on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
