This Black-Owned Brand Has the Perfect Nude for Brown-Skin Girls—No Lip Liner Required!

Products were gifted for review consideration, but of course, all opinions are my own.

Like so many of you, I’m spending more time on camera than ever. These days, I’m trying to find a balance between trying to look like my usual self but not doing too much. A bold red lip doesn’t quite hit the same when you’re always in the house!

Propa Beauty may be a new kid on the block—they launched in April of this year, right in the thick of the pandemic!—but has already found its way onto the lips of girls like me. This Black-owned beauty brand is starting with a collection of 12 creamy lipsticks, and you can find a nude that perfectly fits your skin tone and mood.

I am a real groupie for a deep, dark, chocolate brown lipstick—always have been. When I uncapped the shade, “Driven,” baby! I knew I had found a winner.

The PowerPouts Luminous Satin Lipstick collection lives up to its name: the lipsticks slide against my lips and leave a shining coat of color behind. A smooth, nourishing lipstick kinda feels like a bit of a luxury these days, definitely more so than the matte lipsticks I tended to favor pre-COVID. 

In a world with few pleasures, Propa Beauty‘s new lipsticks have become one of mine. Will you be picking up any of these shades?
