5 Black Owned Businesses You Should Shop at This Holiday Season

This holiday season there are literally thousands of brands to choose from. However, this year I have been on a mission to buy from more black owned businesses. I have been sampling different items and I’ve compiled a list of my 5 favorite black owned companies that you should try.

1. Indigo Cosmetics

Launched in February 2016 by the fabulous sister duo of Danielle De’Saussure and Brittany Coleman, Indigo offers the best in high quality liquid HD foundations, advanced long wear concealers, liquid matte lipsticks and more.

2. Bevel

Bevel is a men’s grooming company that brands itself as having the first end to end shaving system designed to reduce irritation and razor bumps. Founded by Tristian Walker, Bevel caters to men with coarse, curly hair who have struggled to find products to suit their specific needs. In 2016, Bevel won GQ’s Best Grooming Award. And ladies, this is great for shaving your legs too. I have dipped into my husband’s stash more than once. You can purchase their products directly from their site at or at Target stores nationwide.
