Mented Cosmetics was created under the mission to create the perfect nude lipstick for all Black women. Now they are helping you to glow. The Black-owned company partnered with Dear White People star Ashley Blaine Featherson for a limited edition Bronze and Glow collection. The collection features bronze and highlight duo compacts and lipglosses.
This brown skin girl is making sure her bronzer and highlighter duo is for all Black women. Mented Cosmetics co-founder and CEO, KJ Miller explained, “It is often difficult finding bronzers when your skin is as deep as Ashley’s so we worked together to create options that are truly radiant for all tones.” It’s available in two shades medium ($28.00, mentedcosmetics.com), which is a matte bronzer and copper highlighter as well as deep ($28.00, mentedcosmetics.com) which features a radiant bronzer and deep bronze highlighter.
I also love that they have lip glosses that are rich in pigment. The lip glosses come in two shades: Star Studded ($15.00, mentedcosmetics.com) which is a clear base with a yellow gold shimmer just perfect for summer and Bombshell ($15.00, mentedcosmetics.com) which is a rich milk chocolate gloss with gold shimmer to help you have an overall bronze look! I love a good lip gloss when I’m looking for something more light and airy. This entire collection is the perfect way to achieve a summertime glow.
According to Mented Cosmetics co-founder and COO, Amanda E, Johnson, this partnership occurred organically. She explained via press release, “Ashley and I are friends from college so when it came to the collaboration, I wanted to make sure it was a true partnership. Ashley has been intimately involved with every detail from the very beginning.”
Featherson stated, “Mented is a brand I love and adore. I have a deep appreciation for their commitment to being an inclusive and ever expanding brand,. Working with Amanda and KJ was absolutely seamless.”
I’m excited for this collection that brown skin girls everywhere can appreciate and most importantly, glow! Johnson added, “The collection is the perfect blend of Ashley and Mented; soft, inclusive, and fun.”
