Lippie of the Day: Havana by NYX

NYX HAVANA SOFT MATTE LIP CREAM ON DARK SKIN WOMEN OF COLOR

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.
