Jennifer Jones. For women of color, finding the perfect nude lip is elusive. We all know what it should look nude on our lips — enhance the natural color and amplify the depth — women we can never seem to find it. All that's changed with K. Miller and Amanda Johnson's new company, Mented Cosmetics: And just like our iconic eye-high kicks, we were known for an indelible bold red lip thanks to MAC Cosmetics Russian Red.

After hanging-up my Rockette dance heels and transitioning to Broadway, the classic red lip remained my calling card, but sometimes it felt too femme fatale, vampy and aggressive. When I tried swapping it out with a nude lip, the lighter shades knocked the pigment from my lips and looked chalky, while the darker tones were too moody, muddy, and earthy.
So when the Mented Cosmetics Capsule Lip Collection came across my radar, featuring six of its most popular nude lipsticks, I snatched it up! Back when I was a Rockette, my stage face started with perfectly-clean skin.
Fresh out of my teenage years, I used what the other Rockettes used, straight from the pages of Seventeen magazine: Neutrogena facial cleanser, Sea Big booty latinasnude astringent, St. Ives apricot scrub, and Clearasil moisturizing lotion!
And to remove the layers of stage face, including stubborn rich glue, we used Pond's cold cream cleanser. I'm a dedicated morning runner, so before I head-out the door, I use stuff designed to withstand sweat and protect me from the elements.
