Essentials by Edwina is the premier lipstick collection by Edwina Kulego, International Business Developer for UBM Fashion Group. Edwina and I met over 10 years ago as fashion interns at ESSENCE Magazine. We’ve worked photoshoots together, laughed until we cried and danced the night away into the wee hours of the morning. Edwina stood beside me on my wedding day, she’s my favorite person and my best friend. She’s smart, extremely hard working and inspiring to any girl boss! So when the news broke of her launching multiple lipstick colors, I knew, other than being the first in line to purchase, I’d be featuring it on my blog.
For her new collection Edwina partnered with Celfie Cosmetics, a New York based cosmetic company that empowers people everywhere through the magic of makeup. The black-owned cosmetic company has collaborated with celebs like Claudia Jordan, Demetria McKinney and 2016 Miss Universe Kenya, Scarlet Were. Essentials by Edwina features three lipsticks in shades that every woman needs to be confident in and out the meeting room.
Shiraz – named after her favorite wine, Shiraz is a gorgeous berry red color with a slight shine.
LaLa – when Edwina told me she was launching a lip collection, I knew a bold red would be one of the shades. LaLa is her signature firer matte red with the perfect undertone for dark skin.
Nogah – my personal favorite color! Nogah is a creamy nude shade with earthy tones, perfect for brown girls.
Vegan, cruelty-fee, and black-owned?! Essentials by Edwina x Celfie Cosmetics is a no brainer purchase you can be excited about. The formulas are creamy, not drying and I love how at the end of the day your lips aren’t raw from removing the colors (like some matte lipsticks) Each lippy is $14.99 or you can get all three for just $40. Click the link to purchase and share your pictures! Hashtag #essentialsbyedwina and you could be featured on Celfie Cosmetics IG.
I am so unbelieveable proud of my friend! Edwina has always been one to work for what she wants, and she deserves every good thing that comes her way. She represents substance, endurance and so much more. I can’t wait to see what she does next!!
