GIVEAWAY: Fabulous Black-Owned Makeup Brands Are The #BOMB! [CLOSED]

Published on February 25, 2017 by   ·   24 Comments

Hey there Champagne Dreamers, have I got something really special for you!

I’ve been talking a lot on Facebook about how I’m working towards creating a YouTube channel, and one of the videos I’m really excited to make is the BOMB Challenge, featuring fabulous Black-Owned Makeup Brands!  In getting ready for this challenge, I discovered a ton of great brands that I’m already loving and I can’t wait to share some looks with you using those products.  But I figured I would take it one step further – why not give away some BOMB products so you could try them out yourself!

We have two fabulous prizes up for grabs:

BOMB Giveaway 01

The first one is the Lemonade Package (We see you, Queen Bey!):

BOMB Giveaway 02

This package includes the Clean Machine Foaming Face Wash from Tyra Beauty, Dazzle Daze Glitter from Lena Lashes in LAX, the Lena Lashes Lemonade Highlighter palette, 24K loose eyeshadow and Fall Bliss lip lacquer from IVIVIIV Cosmetics (1.6.75), a Beauty Bakerie Lip Whip in shade Louvre Palace, Vault Cosmetics Lipstain in Flay (they threw this shade into my order for free when I mentioned that I was working on the BOMB Challenge – shout out to them!), and the Tyra Beauty Light in a Stick Highlighter in SINsational City.

The next package is the Femme Fatale Package (think Halle Berry as Jinx in the Bond movie!):

BOMB Giveaway 03

This package includes all products from Lena Lashes (they have some great products including real mink eyelashes and wonderful sales – look for a brand review coming soon!): two Dazzle Daze glitters in BFF and Shanghai, and 5 shades of the More Matte Than Matte liquid lipsticks – left to right, Carter, Idris, Marco, Sean, and Stephan.

So many delicious treats!  Whether you prefer bright and sunny like the Lemonade package or a little more sultry and cool-toned like Femme Fatale, there are colors here to flatter every skintone!

All you have to do to get yourself entered for a chance to win is comment below and tell us who your favorite strong black female role model is!  Maybe you love Rosa Parks for her courage and her amazing contribution to history.  Maybe you love Michelle Obama for serving for 8 years as one of the most elegant and accessible first ladies in our nation’s history.  Maybe you love Octavia Spencer for her humor and her dynamic film characters.  These are 3 of Miss Jaye’s favorites – now tell us yours!

Also, be sure to note which of the two prizes is your favorite!  When we pick the two winners, if they each chose a different package as their favorite, they’ll win it!  If they both like the same one, then we’ll use our randomizer to award the winner!  The giveaway is open to US residents only (sorry!) and you must have your comment in by 9 pm central on March 26!

Now Go Forth & Get Painted!

  1. Lisa Shanklin says:

    The three women whose lives are presented in the movie Hidden Figures are my heros; along with Marian Anderson, Leontyne Price, Jessie Norman, Sojourner Truth, & Rosa Parks.

  2. Laurene says:

    I’m going all Femme Fatale here, first of all! And I am having a hard time deciding my favorite black female role models so I’ll say Angela Davis, bell hooks, and Bessie Smith.

  3. Amanda says:

    I have so many but I think, today, my hero is Ava DuVernay — such a powerful, incredible, knowledgeable, strong woman. She is phenomenal!

  4. Tara Wood says:

    My favorite Black woman of color is Viola Davis. Her roles are always with conviction and class. She really becomes her character and you forget who the actor is and focus on the character. I loved her winning speech at the oscars.

  5. Tara Wood says:

  6. Ada Kringler says:

    I love them both but I’ll go with Lemonade. I have several Black sheroes but I’ll go with Maya Angelou, whose writing made acknowledge and believe that Black is beautiful and suffering does create character-embrace your scars. Harriet Tubman, Leontyne Price, Tina Turner, Tanith Lee, Alice Walker-who shone a light on female genital mutilation in her sequels to The Color Purple. I could go on for hours but I will stop here.

  7. Shelley Cotton says:

    My favorite is Whoopi Goldberg. She’s won so many awards and isn’t afraid to be herself. She’s also rocked dreads before they were fashionable.

  8. Beth Perry says:

    I have been so crazy that i havent even seen you on facebook, probably cuz my tablet died and my oldest borrowed my phone and put it in the same pocket as a,serving of beer cheese soup
    . Kids do NOT try this at home
    But i have been lusting over Tyra’s new lip colors
    Spring will.eventuly show up, then 6 monthes will pass and we will be back shove

  9. Keyla says:

    Ashley graham ! That girl is amazing!!

  10. Lauren says:

    I recently watched Hidden Figures as well, and seeing what types of things that had to be overcome back then is crazy. Something so simple as having a bathroom in the same building. It made me respect these ladies and how they handled themselves in the face of issues. Oh and I like the Lemonade package!

  11. Alex says:

    My mom and I are big fans of Angela Bassett. She’s an amazing actor and she kicks ass in American Horror Story.

  12. K says:

    I would have to go with Shirley Chisolm, the first black woman to be elected to Congress; or Coretta Scott King.

    Also- love Lemonade!

  13. Andrea says:

    Harriet Tubman -helping other from slavery. What a brace woman.
    Either one would be cool!

  14. Andrea says:

    Brave not brace

  15. Kelli Kline says:

    Obviously Michelle Obama but we should never forget all the strong women who fought tirelessly before her (us). Sojourner Truth was fighting for women and freedom. She escaped slavery with her daughter and learned of her sons illegal sale into slavery and sued his owner…AND WON!
    Of course, I love Angela Bassette too. I have seen her in many things and she acts with such conviction.
    There are so many strong, powerful, and brave women of color it that we could keep naming examples for the whole of 2017 and still not have named them all. Every woman has fought (and sadly still has to) for our future and we should never let them be forgotten!!!

  16. I read the book called Incidents of the Life of a Slave Girl. Harriet Jacobs was treated so bad by her slave owners,but she was such a smart lady in several different ways.She hid in an attic that had a small peep hole in it so she can see and then she got to travel at the end of the book.

  17. Amy says:

    between her career, and the speech at this year’s Oscars I have to go with Viola Davis

  18. Carolsue says:

    I would have to say Serena and Vanessa Williams. I admire them a great deal.

  19. Morgan Bentley says:

    I think I would have to give it to the badass Rosa Parks. Her courage to say no and stand up for the rights of all African Americans is incredible and something to be admired. I think her actions still inspire many today to stand up (or stay seated) to injustice.

    Today is my birthday and I’m feeling lucky. Love both prizes but I’ll go with Lemonade :)

  20. Jessie says:

    Gotta go with Whoopie. I’ve always looked up to her not just as a comedienne, but someone who was not afraid of going against the norm. And love the lemonade one 😉

  21. Daryl Thompson (Da'mage Galore) says:

    My 3 are a little left of center but I’ll comment in ascending order.(3) Georgia Anne Muldrow she is multi talented and is the 1 and only Female artist on the very male (Underground hip hop label) Stonesthrow records. (2)Eryka Badu she has been the voice of free speech and Fashion visionary of mine for years. She symbolizes that you don’t have to play to the mainstream to have a successful career in the entertainment industry. (1) is my mother Willemara Thompson she raised 6 kids on her own when her good for nothing husband cheated on her and left us all in a lurch. There you have in
