Project BOMB: Iman Luxury Contour Trio 

Project BOMB: Iman Luxury Contour Trio Swatches on Dark Skin

Black History Month may be over but that doesn’t mean I can’t show my BOMBs some love! Even in 2017, you’d be hard pressed to find brands that cater to women of all skin tones. Especially the luscious chocolate ones. That’s why it’s so important to embrace, celebrate and support the brands that do. And what better what to do that than celebrate the #melaninmagic of brands created by black women themselves? Yaaaaaas, honey!

Project BOMB: Iman Luxury Moisturizing Lipsticks

Normally, I’m all about pink on Wednesday but today I want to do something a little different. Today marks the beginning of Black History Month and I thought it would be a fabulous idea to celebrate the beauty of melanin through makeup. It can be hard to find makeup when you’re on the deeper end of the spectrum. Luckily, there’s some amazing melanin beauties out there who have stepped up to create an entire line dedicated to helping women of all shades feel beautiful. Even the darkest of divas!

So I decided to kick off Project BOMB (Black Owned Makeup Brands) to showcase different BOMBs and products that are brown girl friendly and support our local communities. To kick off Project BOMB, I’d like to reintroduce you to the Iman Luxury Moisturizing Lipsticks aka one of the best lipsticks you’ll ever try.

Iman Rebel Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick Review

Iman Rebel Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick

Spring is right around the corner but I’m not letting go of my edgy and vampy lipsticks until I see sunny skies and May flowers. I just can’t get enough of them right now! One of my new favorites is the Iman Rebel Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick from her fall Alter Ego Collection. I’ve been addicted to brown lips lately and Rebel is like the perfect 90s brown lip that’s a must have.

Iman Luxury Contour Trio Review

Iman Luxury Contour Trio

When you have dark skin it’s easy to get caught up on the idea that you need to spend the big bucks to find a decent contour. More brands have started hopping on board by adding deeper shades but they come with a hefty price tag that doesn’t always seem worth it if you’re just a beginner or don’t contour as often. Or just want options without breaking the bank. Leave it to Iman to know exactly how us dark skin divas are feeling and catering to our needs. You go, Iman!


Iman Fall Collection Haul & Swatches

Iman Fall Collection 2015 Luxury Contour Trio, Rebel Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick, Muse Luxury Lip Shimmer

We’re already pushing into spring but the Iman Alter Ego Collection still managed to catch my eye when I dropped by Walgreens last week. Iman launched the Alter Ego Collection for fall a little while ago but I’ve been so busy going crazy at Ulta that I haven’t had much time to hit the drugstore aisles like I used to.

During an impromptu visit to Walgreens, I stumbled across the Alter Ego Collection display filled with new Luxury Moisturizing Lipsticks (which I LOVE!), Luxury Lip Shimmers a new Luxury Contour Trio too. The makeup junkie in me wanted it all but I managed to walk away with just 3 new products.

From reds to purples, vampy lips go with any mood, anytime this season so I’ve pulled out 5 vampy lipsticks to pull the inner diva out of you.


5 Red Lipsticks for Fall

I’ve always been more of a pink and purple lip kinda gal but every now and then like to slip on  a nice red lipstick. Like when I’m feeling all fierce and sexy. That’s when I know it’s red lip time! Majority of my red lipstick collection is limited edition but I have a few readily available budget beauty reds that aren’t just affordable but great quality. And so perfect for fall!
