An indisputable highlight of my recent UK trip was meeting up with Anna Sylla, the creator of Anna S. Lipsticks (A line of natural, handmade, organic lipsticks that look especially amazing on darker skin tones). She currently has three colour options available (with more to come), which she has for sale on Etsy.
** Update 3/21/18. Anna now has moved from Etsy to a new website : annasbeautycosmetics.com
I found Anna about a month ago on Instagram while I was looking for inspiration under the #NaturalHair hashtag. As I scrolled along, I came across a photo of her with a gorgeous fro, rocking a beautiful pink lip. As Afros and Lipsticks are two of my favourite things, she had gained my interest. When I read the caption beneath her photo and realized she had made the lipstick herself, I couldn’t help but message her. We started talking, and when it turned out she lived in London, I knew I had to meet up with her for a feature, and so here we are.
