The beauty/makeup world has been poppin' severely in 2017. Colourpop is coming to Sephora in November, MC Lyte has a makeup line, Naturi Naughton is the spokeswoman for AJ Crimson Beauty, Fenty Beauty just dropped, and Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty special is here. There are rumors of Morphe Brushes coming to Ulta Beauty next month, but I've yet to see any valid receipts on it from either company, so I'll just say it's a rumor until it's confirmed. Anywho, in new makeup news, Issa Rae, writer and producer of the new hit show Insecure is the new face of Covergirl Cosmetics.

This is what Issa had to say for a press release upon the announcement:

Becoming a CoverGirl means a lot because the brand recognizes just how important it is for people to embrace their individuality and express themselves in unique and diverse ways. This has been a major part of my personal journey, and a message that I want to share with others.

In more makeup news, Coloured Raine Cosmetics is bringing forth brand, spanking new mini palettes next month. Check out what they had to say on their Instagram:

Coloured Raine is a Black woman owned business too. My favorite palette from the collection is "Beauty Rust". Very festive for the autumn season.

  1. I hope I don't come out as a racist but I am really glad that companies are now making makeup that is more designed for darker skin tones. Like Fenty did great, I hope these new companies do as well

    1. Nope love that's not racist at all, it's straight facts because for so long the mainstream makeup industry has ignored Black women and other women of color. There have been makeup lines that catered to dark skin for years like Iman, Fashion Fair, Black Radiance, Black Opal, BLAC Minerals. It's just that due to them being smaller brands a lot of people didn't know about them until recently. Thanks for sharing!
