In honor of Black History Month, the Black Like Us team made an effort to continue to support Black-owned businesses that we’ve shown love to over the years but we also added some new businesses throughout the month of February that are producing some cool products and providing awesome service.
Check out our list.
I am an everyday lipstick-wearing wanna-be. From bright reds, pinks, and even deep plums, I vowed to make sure these lips pop at least five days a week. Here are some of the Black-owned brands that my team is rocking right now.
When the founder of The Lip Bar was turned down on the popular business investment television show, she didn't stop. Instead, she continued to produce bomb ass cosmetics and now has a number of brick and mortar stores and the brand is sold in Walmart and Target stores.
Dreamy Cosmetics made its debut in 2020 when founder Rayven McCree decided to chase her dream of starting a makeup brand. They offer brightly colored, high-quality products for people of all different ages and skin tones.
Here are a couple of other brands that we are loving.
