The Lip Bar’s orangy red liquid matte shade dubbed Boy Trouble, is the perfect hue to rock with any festive look. Plus, reds like this look great on almost every skin tone, so it’s a safe gift for your lipstick loving girlfriend.
If you’re in search of the perfect Jamaican black castor oil, look no further than Rooted Treasure. The oil is made in Jamaica using a traditional method passed down from generations. Before washing your hair, add a generous amount of Rooted Treasure, then comb it though to detangle. This oil also makes for a great deep conditioner or hot oil treatment.
Beauty Bakarie is one of the coolest cosmetic brands on the market. We love how the company uses catchy baked good references to market its products. The So Icy Illuminator references ice cream through it’s packaging, but applies as a beautiful highlighter for strobing and other techniques.
Continue to salivate over Fenty Beauty’s Tropy Wife highlighter, but don’t sleep on the So Icy Illuminator.
Coloured Raine, another beloved Black-owned cosmetic brand, released several limited edition mini palattes. Beauty Rust comes with 6 warm toned shades that compliment various skin tones.
Shea butter is the perfect beauty item to have in your arsenal during this time of year. Try the Orange Creamsicle Whipped Shea Butter from the BGLH Marketplace. This butter is combined with coconut oil, almond oil, organic vanilla extra, and orange essential oil. Wear this and smell yummy at the events you attend or gift it to someone you love.

It’s the perfect way to treat yourself or a close loved one for the holiday season.
