If you didn’t know, AJ Crimson is a Black celebrity makeup artist who has lauded browner skin tones in the beauty industry for years. His clients include everyone from Adrienne Bailon to Regina King. A few years back, he came out with AJ Crimson Beauty, and now, you can get your hands on it at Nordstrom.
“I felt like there was an absolute need to bring products to women of color that actually worked and didn’t oxidize or change,” Crimson has said about the launch of his makeup line. “I wanted to create a product inclusive of women of all ethnicities, a product all women could find ownership in and believe in. So often, makeup has been designed with a one-size-fits-all mentality, and with Black women and women of color, my cosmetic line contains shades for women of every ethnic background and skin tone.”
The Nordstrom collection includes some of the brand’s best-selling products, including its Office Politics Collection, as well as its matte liquid lipsticks and creme foundations.
While it’s easy just to buy everything, here’s what you should buy now on Nordstrom. Congratulations to AJ Crimson Beauty!
1. Office Politics Liquid Lip Gloss, $22
This is a pigmented lip gloss that glides on smooth and dries down to a matte finish. Rock the nude shades or add a pop of color on the lips.
3. Dual Skin Creme Foundation, $45
This is a hand-poured foundation made with all-natural beeswax. It comes in 14 shades and is perfect whether you’re a makeup beginner or an artistic pro.
4. Artist Kit Refill Pan, $25
Let’s say you already have the Dual Skin Creme foundation and just need a refill – no problem with these insertable refill pans. They are literally $20 less than buying a new compact.
