Founded by Nigerian-born Chichi Eburu, Juvia’s Place offers makeup inspired by African culture and art. The hero of their product line is their collection of vibrant, highly-pigmented eyeshadow palettes. Our fave picks? The Nubian palette and the Sahara palette.
Mixed Chicks is starting a curly revolution! Formulated especially for those with curly, kinky, mixed hair, Mixed Chicks is changing the game for curls everywhere. We’re such fans, we actually included their amazing Morning After Redefining Foam in our July Box!
The longest-staying liquid lip (in the most delicious shades imaginable). Beauty Bakerie features a wide range of confections from lipstick to eye shadow to concealer.
This list wouldn’t be complete without Rih’s game-changing makeup line. Fenty Beauty launched in September 2017 with an astounding 40-shade foundation range, plus bomb highlighters made for amping up the glow on all skintones.
