A First Look at black|Up Cosmetics

Haven’t heard of this line, have you? Born in France, black|Up Cosmetics is the FIRST makeup artist brand created for women of color–especially for those with darker complexions. Wow is right! Their Facebook page is full of comments from happy customers and makeup artists. It’s a luxury and higher-end brand. Although I’m a drugstore diva, it’s cool to see a brown girl friendly version of Chanel, Dior and Dolce & Gabanna Cosmetics. I’m just itching to try as many of the products as I can.

First up—a mattifier and powder.
