Welcome to another But Black Women Can’t post. The purpose of this series to dispel the many myths and stereotypes that have haunted Black women for centuries. Colors we can’t wear, products we shouldn’t touch….it’s getting old. It’s time we start reclaiming our identities and defining our own beauty. Who’s with me?!!

I can’t believe I haven’t done this one yet! If there is one lipstick color that I think many Black women hide away from….it is red. So many of us fear wearing it because we think it will make us look crazy. Chances are you probably saw someone who didn’t wear it well and it scared you off. Am I right or am I right?
Well un-scare thy self because red lipsticks are beautiful on brown skin.
“Red is too….red.”
You’ve said it or heard it, haven’t you? What’s the matter with you? You CAN rock red lips. A little bit of confidence goes a long way.
My girl Shavonda and I both happened to try Maybelline’s ColorSensational Very Cherry. Check us out!
Reds rock and so do you.
Get one today.
…..and don’t let me catch you in the streets talkin’ about how Black women shouldn’t wear red lips. Girl please! Somebody dun told you wrong.
Peace, love and red lips for all!
