When you are darker than tan, it becomes a little difficult to find makeup that's properly pigmented enough for we women of color: Since most of the color palettes are marketed to women with lighter complexions, it frankly to see how it might look on our skin.

We've pulled together 10 super pigmented lipsticks that complement darker skinned ladies looking to treat themselves on the high-end market. Not even for V-Day. Read More
I recently came in contact with Beauty Without Cruelty. I was drawn to their array of colorful lipsticks and, of course, the idea of all-natural beauty. I found out their products are 100% vegetarian and 100% natural. The company was actually founded by an animal welfare organization, so you know they're legit. Naturally, their mantra is all in the name. They sent over a few products and I'd like to tell you a little about products like Rosehip and CandyFloss. Read More
Let’s face it, lipstick is pretty cool. It takes so much skill and grace to apply it, and it oozes vintage glam. But it also contains toxic metals: eek! The majority of lipsticks contain lead, but the amounts are pretty trace. Until recently, researchers were relatively unconcerned, but then they figured out that higher levels of eight other metals are also present in many brands.

I was recently sent some beauty products from a company called FACEFACTS BY Lori. It's a company that specializes in hand-crafted lip products, using all natural and certified organic ingredients. I love my lipsticks so I was excited to test these out! All natural has become a new priority for me, especially for lip stuff since I basically end up eating it by the end of the day. These specific lipsticks by FACEFACTS are neat because, among other things, there's no animal testing, no certified dyes or lakes, no mineral oil, no petolatum, no lead and they're 100% paraben free.

Pre-Internet, if you wanted to send a love letter to someone, you’d write it down on paper. Maybe you would add a few x's and o's, stickers, a mixtape (in my romantic imagination), a lipstick kiss for good measure, and send it through snail mail. But today, if you want to send a love letter, would you post it on the Internet? Or even address it to the Internet?
Now, there’s an entire site called “Dear Internet…” dedicated to writing love letters online. Read More

Kartina R., of This Moi blog, has an interesting post up today about lipstick, which she has allowed us to share with you.
Lipstick is a fascinating thing.
On Tuesday a New York theater did not pick a play of mine to be a part of their one-act marathon.
On Wednesday I felt sorry for myself.
On Thursday a good thing happened to me. An accomplishment of sorts.
On Friday I wore lipstick.
On Saturday and Sunday I did as well.
Bright. Red. Thick. Matte.
Lipstick is not an unusual choice for me. I have many shades and many textures. There are violets, neon pinks, corals, and browns. Read More
