I’ve seen lots of great round-ups of Black-owned businesses over the past several weeks (here, here, here, and here to share a few!) and I wanted to share a few things I’ve ordered recently as part of a personal effort to be more conscientious about the businesses I’m supporting. I would LOVE to hear some of your favorite Black-owned businesses in the comments!
Marie Hunter candles // I fell in love with these for the chic design but the scents are just as lovely. I ordered the magnolia blossom, peony, and tuberose scents and the peony is unsurprisingly my #1! I’m also intrigued by the prosecco scent which was out of stock when I placed my order.
241 Cosmetics mascara // I’ve worn makeup very infrequently in the age of COVID-19 but I had to try this mascara after receiving a glowing recommendation in my Instagram DMs. The brush has the perfect curl to it! I’m also going to try their eyeliner when my current pencil bites the dust.
Lemlem swimsuit // Lemlem has so many gorgeous pieces and I landed on this pretty powder blue one-piece with bow shoulders and a low back. I ordered the size small and need to have the straps shortened as it dips a little too low in the front, but if you’re taller than I am (5’1″) you should be totally fine! It was definitely a splurge but the quality is gorgeous. The same print is also available on this darling popover dress.
Briogeo Farewell Frizz cream // I ordered this in the hopes it would distract from the fact that I haven’t gotten a keratin treatment since before I got pregnant and have been applying it to damp hair before using this blow dry hair brush. It makes a huge difference in the frizz around my hairline and I love the consistency. I’m eager to try this leave-in conditioner spray from the same line and this deep conditioning mask next!
The Koop candles // I went a little crazy ordering candles on this site as I could hardly believe a candle with such pretty packaging was so affordable. They didn’t arrive before we left for Nantucket but I love knowing that I have something fun waiting for me at home! I ordered the Garden Party, Golden Hour, Penthouse, and Slow Sunday scents and can’t wait to place them around our home.
P.P.S. I can’t stop thinking about this pearl necklace from Black-owned jewelry line Mateo. Thoughts?!
P.P.P.S. A round-up of Black-owned businesses on Etsy.
