What you’ll soon learn about me, and the rest of the BB girl crew is that we’re all about bright lip colors on dark and brown skin. There’s no interest in feeding into the “norm” of what Brown women have been expected to wear. So, you’ll imagine my excitement when I fell in beauty love with these outlandish purple lip colors for the season and beyond.
