I wouldn’t consider myself to be fearless. Not by any means. I can give you a list of all that scares me–but courage on the other hand, that’s something I’ve always had. My fears have never stopped me from taking a leap of faith and trying things I might fail. Courage is defined as “the ability to do something that frightens one.” Often times as successful women we are fearful, yet always courageous.
Roshell Rinkins, founder of Liquid Courage Cosmetics is an advocate for women, particularly those of color who have so often been forgotten about in an industry we play such a major role in. Her brand of bold and vibrantly pigmented lipsticks perfectly epitomize the essence of courageous women on the go. I feel so fortunate to have been able to try a few for myself.
Liquid Courage offers an array of liquid and traditional matte lipsticks that are long lasting, moisturizing and super chic with prices ranging from ($17.99 – $19.99). I tried about 7 different colors and am pleased to say that they all looked good on me. I’m more partial to her liquid lipstick offering, mainly because they are much more pigmented and aren’t as easy to remove.
Surprisingly, her Matte Liquid Lipstick in Toffee is my favorite. I only say surprisingly because I generally like a brighter color, but this is literally the perfect true nude for my dark skin.
I’m all for supporting other Black entrepreneurs, especially women so I urge you to try Liquid Courage for yourself. It doesn’t disappoint!
