Lipstick series: Pretty in Pink by Mented Cosmetics

Recently I picked up a new lipstick by Mented Cosmetics. A new addition to my lipstick collection is Pretty in Pink by Mented Cosmetics

Can a girl with dark skin even wear pink lipstick?

As some of my beautiful bronze peers would know, finding a nice pink lipstick for dark skin without looking like Tyrone Biggims just drank Peptol Bismol can be vary frustrating. I found more often than not, most pink lipstick were not made with me in mind and often shyed away from pink because of this.

Out of this same frustration, a new cosmetics company was born, Mented Cosmetics

I ordered this lipstick from their website  and the cost was $16.50. This company makes nude lipstick specially for women with deeper skintones. I highly commended them for making a product that covers the needs of women with deeper complexion (like myself) when many mainstream companies typically will neglect us or.

My thoughts

This is a vibrant pink with slight brown undertones that looks beautiful on my skin, but I would prefer a liner with this in order to feel more comfortable wearing it. If you have a dark to deep complexion, this is a great option to introduce pinks if one finds pinks to be intimidating. This lipstick has a satin finish and was very comfortable to wear.
