AJ Crimson Beauty is on my list of Black owned makeup brands to try and it's dope to see the lovely actress Naturi Naughton as a brand ambassador for the company. Naturi Naughton is the multi-talented, triple threat singer, dancer, and actress who was in the early 2000's girl group 3LW. Since leaving the group, Naughton has found major success in the drama arena acting in films like Lottery Ticket, Notorious, and the highly acclaimed television show Power.

As for AJ Crimson Beauty, the brand was started by AJ Crimson, "an entrepreneur, makeup artist and beauty & lifestyle expert." Crimson started off as a beauty solutionist who created one of a kind products for celebrities like Regina King, Hilary Duff, Angela Bassett, Amerie, Fergie, Keyshia Cole, Missy Elliot, and many more. His products were used in runway fashion shows and even on television shows like Girlfriends, The View, Hit the Floor, The Real, and American Horror Story. The products even was used in the film The Hunger Games. The list of his accomplishments within the beauty and fashion list goes on.






Naturi Naughton is the first brand ambassador of AJ Crimson Beauty and helped debut the "Celebrate You" collection with a fab photo shoot featuring three lip glosses: "Power Play", "Ooh I'm Cute", and "She's Everything". This is what the beauty has to say about her new partnership:

I couldn’t be more thrilled to partner with AJ Crimson on this signature lip gloss collection. I think it’s so important – especially now that I have a little girl of my own – to remind women to celebrate themselves in all their many hues and shades.” 
As a dark skinned Black woman, Naturi has had her struggles working in the entertainment industry. It even played a part in why she was forced out of 3LW. Nonetheless she has grown to love and embrace her complexion.
As a child and even during my time as a professional singer people mocked my complexion, lips, and so much more. It weighed me down but I’m glad we’re living in a time when we can make sure all girls know how beautiful they are and that they should be celebrated
This sounds like a great partnership between A.J. Crimson and Naturi Naughton. While many mainstream makeup brands are beginning to create more ranges of makeup for Black women and other women of color, it's still extremely vital to support brands that were created for darker skin tones from day one. As we know, it's also important to support Black owned and operated businesses like AJ Crimson so more opportunities like the "Celebrate You" Collection can continue for other Black women.

Take a look at Naturi's fierce shoot with AJ Crimson Beauty:
