I also could've included Snob + Chestnut? (since I included Angel)
1) Chestnut (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7x-9UpCbIpE)
**FORGOT TO INCLUDE (because my purse or car ate them), but worth checking out:
1) Ravishing - more on the orange side and I prefer to wear this with Chestnut
2) Syrup - more of a pink nude and very pretty!
3) Film Noir (If you have a deeper complexion than me, this could work for you) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AHZbKUO0AM (You may also get away with "O" which is a very unique color because it sort of changes depending on the light)
Sorry about that! I'll be sure to do individual swatches of these soon!
Lastly, I tried to not include any limited edition colors! Toodles!
So that every girl can grow up feeling beautiful, and see a positive representation of herself in the mainstream beauty industry. And so that every girl can go to any makeup brand, confidently knowing that they offer something made for her too. All skin tones should be valued and appreciated; every girl is beautiful. Not including all shades in the dialogue of beauty is hurtful and damaging.
Because lipstick is powerful! All my life I struggled with self-love and poor self-esteem, hating everything about myself from my dark skin to my big lips, until I tried on Ruby Woo. Lipstick was the start of my journey to self-acceptance and declaring my beauty; I want every girl to feel, define, and accept her own beauty too.
#thepaintedlipsproject is a collective effort driven by the underrepresented consumers of the beauty industry. It was founded by Shana Moore, who noticed the overwhelming amount of support from women of color, in response to her lip swatch videos on Youtube. These women expressed gratitude simply because it is rare to see mainstream products modeled on women with darker complexions, which further makes the process of shopping for makeup even harder than it already is, in an industry that doesn’t cater to minorities. #thepaintedlipsprojects was created to take matters into our own hands and fill this void by collectively building an archive to show what lip products and colors look like on different skin tones. In turn, this will empower us all with buying confidence and knowledge to reflect how fabulous you look and feel.
How can you help?
Simply use the hashtag #thepaintedlipsproject in your title when you upload lip swatch videos on Youtube. Your video will be added to the project’s playlist that anyone can search. In addition, your video will be added to the detailed-specific playlists as well, such as “red”, or “MAC Cosmetics” or “lipgloss”.
If you don’t have a Youtube account, you can still participate by using the hashtag #thepaintedlipsproject when uploading your selfies via the social media of your choice. Don’t forget to include the name of the product and color! I will be sure to give screen-shot shout-outs for your participation at the end of my lip swatch videos.
Together, we can make a difference by declaring our beauty in an industry that suggests otherwise! In addition, we can help each other out in our purchasing choices!
DISCLAIMER: I swatch lip products for informative purposes only. This is NOT a sponsored video.
