My 5 Favorite Semi-Matte Lipsticks by Mented
Mented is a Woman of Color owned beauty brand that wanted to make sure people of every skin tone had a perfect nude lip. These are my 5 favorite colors. They're all super moisturizing, creamy, and feel amazing.
Pretty in Pink - This one is a fun, vibrant pink that I wear a lot in spring and summer. It's sort of a bubble gum pink and feels really youthful
Dope Taupe - This has the same hues as my natural lip color but the shade is just slightly darker, so I usually wear it when I'm going pretty natural but want a little boost to my lip color.
*Sometimes I will use a combination of Pretty in Pink on the outer edges of my lips and Dope Taupe on the inner! Might sound like it would look weird, but our lips are naturally different shades at different points so this actually enhances my lips more accurately.
Mented #5 - This is my go-to night-out lip - it's a great blend of red and brown so I like how it works with my skin tone while still feeling dressy.
Foxy Brown - This color makes me feel really sophisticated. I love wearing this for meetings or speaking events when I want to come across as assertive and knowledgeable.
Dark Night - This is definitely the dramatic shade of the bunch! I'll wear this on nights out when I want to feel *extra* fierce.
If y'all are looking for some new lippies, especially if you are a WOC, definitely consider Mented!
