Red Lips Review 

The creator of this brand is a full-service cosmetologist who started out as an MUA. While acquiring products to do her services she noticed that some items weren't to her liking. This led her to create her own products for the everyday woman. She has a lipstick that lasts for ten hours! In addition, to the bomb lipsticks, she also has foundations, loose powders, eyeliners and brow pencils. These items are vegan for the socially conscious beauty baes. For info on all the products available, please visit



This curator started her line because she wanted something to compliment her eclectic style. This woman is all about color! So, if you’re looking for something edgy to compliment your festival wear this is the brand for you. She has loose powders that are multi-purpose: these powders can be used as lip shimmer, eyeshadows, bronzers, blushes, etc. There are lip frostings available as well that come matte or gloss. The lip balms are infused with Argan oil and Jamaican black castor oil. All her products are vegan as well with 35 colors to choose from. To see all the looks that are available, please visit

A Kweendom’s Beauty  

This mama of six started this line because her children had skin allergies. Once she saw that her products were well received. She continued to curate vegan goodies to spread among the masses. I’ve had the pleasure of using items from her line and I’ll share my personal favorites. Her body butters are the truth! My family loved those along with her vanilla soaps. Her soaps change periodically. There are also beard oils available as well.  

Summertime is the season for plenty of activities and a lady still has to maintain her house. Use this discount code “Queen Ke” to save a coin. Stay fly Royals!
