Welcome to Gorgeois!

Published April 16, 2012 by gorgeois

Hello lovelies! Welcome to my new makeup blog, Gorgeois…I am thrilled that you stopped by! I’d like to tell you a little bit about this blog, and what I hope to accomplish.

I’ll be keeping you up-to-date on all the latest makeup news, of course, but I also want to explore bigger issues through a beauty lens.  I want to help my readers to be informed consumers, I want them to never feel intimidated at the makeup counter, and I want them to feel confident making beauty decisions—whether it be a new purchase, or understanding how to use what they already own.

I’ll be providing useful swatches that will help my readers make smart decisions about where to spend their beauty dollars.  I’ve noticed that there’s a dearth of online makeup swatches on black skin, and we’re also lacking quality swatches of darker foundation shades.  I want to remedy that. It is my goal and my mission to eventually swatch ALL foundations from all brands that offer shades for black skin. I’m going to work hard to make Gorgeois a repository of makeup swatches for black women of all hues.

I believe that beauty can be a source of empowerment, especially for black women. I want to help my readers to expect more, demand more from cosmetic companies. I want to open their eyes to the staggering array of choices out there for us—I’ve realized that many of us haven’t kept up with the beauty revolution, and are unaware that we now have choices beyond MAC! Beauty is also a lot of fun, and I envision this blog as a place where we can just hang out and talk about all aspects of makeup, and about the beauty issues that matter to us.

Thank you for choosing to take this journey with me. Please subscribe in the upper right sidebar to be notified of my new posts…it is my personal goal to post at least once daily. If you have any questions, comments, or requests for topics you’d like to see covered, just leave a note below. I will be back later today with some photos and reviews, and we’ll take it from there!

Kisses, mstar ♥
