Mented Nude Lipstick


As a woman of color, it is not an easy task to find nude lipstick that actually compliments my skin tone. Most of my makeup shopping experiences end with me opting for yet another deep red because I couldn’t find the right shade. It seemed that the only nude lipsticks available were the ones that made me look like I just ate a dozen pink powdered doughnuts.

The women behind Mented Cosmetics (KJ Miller and Amanda E. Johnson) have solved this age old problem with their large selection of nude lipsticks designed with women of color in mind. I was given the opportunity to try out six of the nine shades and I am in love. Each time that I tried a new shade it instantly became my new favorite…they are all so beautiful.

Everything from the packaging to the postcard made me feel like these products were made just for me. The sleek lipstick case and color coded sticker on the bottom make for easy storage on my vanity table. I highly recommend Mented Cosmetics.
