In honor of National Lipstick Day I am launching Lipstick Noir. Lipstick Noir is a project that celebrates the beauty of women of color and a love of lipstick. Each week I will feature a new woman of color rocking a shade of lipstick. I know when I want to buy a lipstick I like to see it swatched on a skin tone similar to mine, since that hot pink doesn’t look the same on me as it does on the white model in the picture. With your help I want to build a space for women of color to reference lip colors, find new ones, and celebrate how dope we can look in any shade under the sun.
The very first Lipstick Noir beauty is Lisa Jean-Francois of Lisa A La Mode.
LIP LINER: No Liner
LIGHTING: Natural, No Flash
COMMENTS: According to Lisa this is a highly pigmented and well priced lipstick. While it may be hard to find in stores, it’s worth it to purchase.
