black girl beauty box

Often times women of color are apologetic for being exclusive. But I believe that there’s nothing wrong with having an all-black magazine or an all-black website, so naturally I subscribe to the notion of an all-black beauty box–by us for us (for corny’s sake).


I was introduced to Black Girl Beauty a few weeks ago and I fell completely in love just for these five sentences:

BLACK GIRL BEAUTY is all things beauty for women of color. BLACK GIRL BEAUTY is an all-encompassing circle of beauty to service the beauty needs of an under-serviced and often unrecognized market. Simply, BLACK GIRL BEAUTY is for us.

BLACK GIRL BEAUTY Box is a subscription based beauty box service specifically catering to the beauty needs of women of color. A beauty product sampling service that specializes in finding products which make women of color look and feel their best.

Check out my Black Girl Beauty box unveiling via Instagram!

Inside there was Nude by Rihanna (retail $49), Origins Super Spot Remover (retail $14.50), Tarte Amazonian clay 12-hour blush (retail $26), Mixed Chicks Pineapple Coconut Bar-Soap (retail $6.50), Damone Roberts Miss Ross Brow Shadow (retail $20), Morgan Taylor Professional Nail Lacquer (retail $8.50), and OJON Rare Blend Oil Total Hair Therapy (retail $35).

All of that for just $20.. sign me up!

    My 1st box arrived yesterday, less than a week after I placed my order. Love the lip butter glaze and can’t wait to try the dry styling heat protect spray. So nice to have product samples for the brown ladies.
