Lets get into this review. Beauty Industry & Mented Cosmetic Story In recent years the beauty industry was not the most inclusive place on the market. Black women, women of color, or dark & deeper complexed women did not have a market that carter to them in the beauty community. Either lip products did not compliment our various skin tones. Or the foundation was too orange or too red, however we condition ourselves to make things work. Thus, Mented Cosmetics was born. Established by two Black women, in my opinion, help bridge a gap for Black women and women of color. This makeup brand has a full collection of lipsticks, complexion products, blushes, and more for tan to deep dark tones. To learn more, click here. As I stated, I got my hand on a few lip products.
