This Black-Owned Brand Is Gifting Us With 'Grown Up Lip Gloss'

We've already waxed poetic about Mented Cosmetics, the Black-owned brand that makes neutral-toned lipsitck for every shade of brown. Since its launch in Spring 2017, founders (and Harvard Business School graduates!) KJ Miller and Amanda Johnson have been plotting an expansion beyond their creamy lippies and now, they're ready to take their nude lineup to the next level. On September 1, Mented will unveil its Gloss for Grown Ups collection; four rich lip gloss shades that can be worn alone or on top of a nude lipstick. Titled "Mauve Over," Berry Me," "Baby Brown" and "Send Nudes," each shade is not only an impressive color match for brown skin; they were formulated to feel good, too.
