Lately, black girl magic has been shining through in a great way. In a way that just makes me so proud to be black. Last year, some of our favorite influencers collaborated with some big brands to give us products that were extremely lit. I wasn't able to get my hands on all of them, but for the ones I did.. it was lit. In honor of black history month, I thought it'd be cool to just show you all some of the cool collabs that occurred and some that are on the way!

2016 was amazing to Muva Aina and 2017 is going to be just as good if not better! She had so many good product collabs and more just keep coming.
- Aso Dara Choker and matching headwrap combo.
- Artist Couture "La Bronze" Highlighter
- ELF J.Glow clay palette

As for the brown girls and women of color, MakeupShayla put onnnnnnnn!

- Maybelline Big Shot Colossal Mascara (face of)
- Tarte x MakeupShayla Contour Palette
- Flutter Lashes "Shayla"

Beauty Bakerie

While this isn't a single person, the brand has a new collab with Gabby Douglas coming out and idk about you, but I'm super excited! BB already has some of the best liquid lipsticks in the game. Now they're working with the 3-time olympic gold champion to create magic! The set will be available in early March and will include 5 "lip-whips" for $80 (actual retail value $100).

Mac is always under the spotlight for something. We've seen a lot of collabs coming from them as
well. This is involving from people such as Taraji P. Henson, Mariah Carey, Tinashe, Dej Loaf, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Lion Babe.

Working with two of my favorite makeup artists, Colourpop had two successful collabs when working with Ellarie and ItsMyRayeRaye. With Ellarie, there is a lip liner and a lippie stick. Irsmyrayeraye's line was limited edition so there isn't any of her products currently available, but when they were there? Oh man.. She had a lippie stick and matching pencil named "Rayezor" and a liquid matte lipstick called "StingRAYE", which is my favorite for the record.

Although not a makeup artist, Colourpop also had an amazing collection with Karreuche. She had more of a full collection with shadows, liquid lipsticks, lip liners, etc.

What were some of your favorite collaborations of last year? Any that you're looking forward to in this year? Do you think brands should make these WOC collabs limited edition or permanent parts of the collection?
