Straight from Paris: Black Up Cosmetics for Women of Color

Hi Dolls~

Have you heard of black|Up? BlackUp Cosmetics, straight from Paris,  is a Luxury Cosmetic line and was founded in 1999.  Its an artist brand created especially for women of color and is France's #1 Ethnic makeup brand.  I plan to venture to Paris before the year is out so I want to get my hands on this make-up and fast!  Black Up Cosmetics proclaims that all of its products are "specially formulated to meet the unique needs of women with deeper skin tones." They pledge dedication to all women with a focus on ethnic women of color.  The products are the brain child of its makeup artist as well as several renowned French and Italian research labs and manufactures. Some great ingredients that jumped out at me are Jojoba Oil, Almond Oil and Vitamin E. The foundations are oil-free, alcohol-free and fragrance-free.

I am SUPER interested in the mascara, the highly pigmented eye shadows, the intense blush, the lipstick, the lip gloss.. oh... and lets not forget the shimmering golden goddess body oil!  OK, who am I fooling?!?!  I want to try them all :) 

Here are a few of my choice picks:
