Sephora is selling its first Black-owned clean makeup — here’s what we know so far

Posted: 5 February 2021 2:20 pm

Meet LYS Beauty, an affordable lineup of vegan products.

Up until now, there has never been a Black-owned makeup brand that’s been given a Clean at Sephora certification. That’s all changing with the launch of LYS Beauty, a line of products that are free from ingredients like parabens and phthalates.

The brand is also cruelty-free, made from recycled packaging and offers price points that range from $16 to $22. You’ll have to wait until the products officially arrive at on February 19th, but here’s a quick preview to tide you over until then.
