Hey guys! I'm Essence, the beauty editor for As/Is. Among my many passions, which include googling Oprah speeches and trying new potato chip flavors, is supporting black-owned businesses—especially black-owned BEAUTY businesses!
People often ask me about good black-owned beauty companies to shop, so I put together a solid list. For the ones I've actually tried, I included a quote in the caption with my personal favorite product from the brand.
