Shayla x Tarte's Palette Collab
So there's one palette that's been on my mind a lot lately and no it's not the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit(even though it's on my wishlist). I've been following updates and reviews on Makeup Shayla x Tarte's collab palette.

I'm kind of obsessed with the glowy potential of that light peach blush and I see hella bronze potential here. What I really like about the demonstration of this product is that she gave us a look for both the eyes and face. A palette built for versatility is a palette built to get you the most bang for your buck. In addition to the versatility of the palette did I forget to mention that the contour palette was created for women with deeper skin tones in mind.
Some people might wonder why race matters when it comes to new product launches like this, but when you're a black woman who also loves the beauty industry, you find yourself feeling overlooked. A lot of contour product launches are made for more fair skin tones with shades that can look ashy on women of color. It's always a celebration when a WOC makes a palette with women like herself in mind. MakeupShayla is representing for WOC in this collaboration. If this product does well as far as sales, this should inspire other makeup brands to take more interest in creating products that are more accessible for WOC and our skin's needs.
Although I am happy that Makeup Shayla is representing for us WOC it can be frustrating that brown girl friendly palettes continue to be rarities. Someday I want to look up and find that brown girl contour palettes and makeup for dark skin becomes a commonality, not a rare feat. Let me know in the comment section below if you're excited for more brown girl friendly makeup palettes?
