Posh Beauty! Black|Up Paris Lipstick


So Poshinistas, I ask you...who doesn't want to be want of those women with a special beauty product that was procured in Paris.  I mean, absolutely the height of chicness.  Enter Black|Up makeup.  My friends and I discovered it while wandering through the famous Printemps department store in Paris. 

According to the website ..."Founded in 1999 black|Up Cosmetics is both the first makeup artist brand created and specialized for women of color, as well as an upscale cosmetics line of unprecedented elegance and luxury, respecting the unique nature of ethnic skins and celebrating their intrinsic beauty. Black|Up is France's #1 ethnic makeup brand.  Wow, so there you have it. 

Ok back to Printemps.  We spent the whole of an hour playing with all of the wonderful colors.  In the end, all I know is that each of us found our own unique shade of lipstick and we fully represent the varying hues of beauty... In true Miss Posh Life form I of course found 4 colors that I love.  The application is UH-mazing. Matte and moisturizing at the same time.  Excellent coverage without feeling heavy. I am not quite sure  how they did it.

Here are a few picts, swatches and the color in action. Also, don't forget to check out www.funkidivagirl.com for more on Black|Up. Stay Posh!
