Lippie of the Day: Havana by NYX


Essence Wearing Havana Matte Cream Lipstick by NYX

Today’s lippie is brought to you by my gorgeous daughter, Essence. This 20-year old beauty and recent 2-year cancer survivor has been itching to be featured on my blog for years, and now with me possibly considering changing the format to something a bit more hair and beauty based, has finally gotten her wish.

Here she is rocking a severe matte cream lipstick by NYX called Havana. This zombie purple as I like to call it looks gorgeous on her brown skin tone, which is bathed in Iman’s Medium Clay 5 Concealing Foundation and translucent setting powder by the highly underrated Astarte Cosmetics.

We’ll be running the Lippie of the Day feature several times a week on Brown Sista, and I ask that you all bear with me as I try to figure out what direction I want to take this site in next. I don’t know for sure where things are headed, but I do know that I want to share a bit more of my own personal hair journey and what I’ve learned since going natural just over a year ago.

I’ve been spending a lot of time in my kitchen concocting all sorts of lotions and potions, many of which I will share here. By no means do I think myself an expert, but I am enjoying the process of learning to care for hair via common ingredients found in my own kitchen.

So, I ask that you all please stay tuned as I work out all the kinks. God willing, the next phase of Brown Sista will be one we will all remember and experience together as a community.
