Growing up I often got teased for being dark especially in Junior High! I specifically remember being called “toast” the joke went something like this “you’re so dark you look like a burnt piece of toast” then there was the classic “Narblacka” I could go on and on about the jokes aimed my way.
Fast forward to 2018 and to be honest I still have some childhood residue that shows up every so often. Most times when I’m shopping for makeup and a voice in my head goes “I’m not THAT Dark!” like seriously Narcisa what is “THAT Dark!?” I go back and forth on whether or not I truly am the darkest shade in the product line. Most times I am and guess what that’s totally OK!! I’ve come to own being the darkest shade in the product line like never before! #teamchocolate
Over the Hurricane vacation, I hit up MAC cosmetics and grabbed a few of their newest shades for chocolate women like myself. To no surprise, at all, I was the darkest shade NW60 thank goodness they added more deep shades!
- Studio Fluid Fix SPF 15 Foundation in NW60
- Studio Fix Concealer in NW55
- Studio Fix Powder Foundation in NW55
I also stopped in Sephora and added to my Fenty Line Collection the Stunna Lip Paint!! I already own her foundation in shade 480 Neutral and the concealer in Truffle Neutral!!
So cheers to the girls in the beauty aisle shopping for the darkest shade to match their melanin dripping goddess complexions. What shade are you? Chime in down below…
