L’Oreal USA has signed an agreement to acquire Carol’s Daughter, the beauty brand known for its natural hair care products.

In a statement released today, L’Oreal USA President and CEO Frederic Roze said the acquisition was part of an effort to “build a new dedicated multi-cultural beauty division.”

"Carol’s Daughter possesses an expertise in the multi-cultural consumer segment, a rapidly expanding market that represents an important growth in the beauty industry," said Roze. "This acquisition will…strengthen the company’s position in this dynamic market."

Founded out of Lisa Price’s Brooklyn kitchen in 1993, Carol’s Daughter has grown to become the premiere multi-cultural beauty brand, credited with helping pioneer the natural hair movement. The company is currently valued at $27 million. Price said she “could not be more proud” to partner with L’Oreal USA.

"I have worked hard for the past 21 years nurturing my brand and am thrilled that we will have a new home with L’Oreal USA," she said. "L’Oreal has a proven track record of helping established companies achieve their full potential while staying true to the core of the brand…I know my mother (Carol) is smiling as well."

Carol’s Daughter joins Urban Decay, Essie, NYX, and Maybelline NY on L’Oreal USA’s extensive roster of beauty brands.

Price and her team will continue to operate out of their NYC headquarters.

Have you guys used carol daughters products? What do you think of the deal? I don’t like to see black company being acquired by bigger non black business to be honest. You guys think the brand will be the same?

i feel that young black females has been portrayed as lazy, hoes like pretty much useless and these girls gave up on showing the media otherwise which really sucks and as for the ones who have tremendous achievements its hard getting any credit and recognition because we live in a sexes world. everytime i try in school project, they dont like hearing myself and other girls, they think all we have to say to foolishness and i strongly want this shit to end.

I believe black girls can’t go wrong with bright lipstick.  I’m a wetnwild and blackradiance girl cause I can’t afford to be a Mac girl. And plus I like to be flawless and affordable.
Are you a lipstick junkie?

Q.U.E.E.N.S MAGAZINE UPDATE

Part of of building a company or business you need to know the reason why you are building this business. Last week in my entrepreneurship we had to answer the following question about our business idea. “Write a summary story of why you want to do the business idea you have come up with. Do not tell me what the product or service is or that you want to make money. Tell me the life story that has impacted you and driven you. Why are you doing what you are doing?”

Here’s my answer I got 10/10 but I want you guys feedback

Does young black women and girls who aren’t singers or actress achievements and life matters? It seems like if an everyday black girl does something positive such achievement rarely get coverage and that bothers me. As someone who pays attention to the media a lot it has come to my attention that young black women and girls achievement and life goes unnoticed unless we are being portrayed negatively. When I use to read Seventeen Magazine in high school I would always read about these nonblack girls and young women making an impact in others life, their community and abroad or starting a business at young age. The same question remain where are the black girls? Are we not doing anything worth covering? I know they are out there achieving greatness, so why are they not receiving the same amount of coverage? What about young black men? Are their life and achievements matters unless they are being killed or being portrayed as thug in the media? Chicago is considered one of the most dangerous city in the U.S and the media never miss a beat to report a shooting from Chicago. For the past third year in a row last April Chicago urban prep and all black male high school has achieved a 100 percent college acceptance rate. Where was mainstream media to report these news? So why am I doing what I am doing? Why am I doing Q.U.E.E.N.S Magazine? The answer is pretty simple Black youths life’s and achievements matters and worth talking about. Also to give young black women/girls a chance to see young people who looks like them doing excellence things, breaking barriers and not just in entertainment but every aspect of life.

Someone will always be prettier.
Someone will always be smarter.
Someone will always be younger.

But they will never be you.

Lately, feminists like Annie Lennox, bell hooks and Emma Watson have taken issue with Beyoncé’s sexual openness. While trying to discredit Beyoncé as a feminist, they seem to have forgotten one of the most important parts of Chimamanda’s speech in ***Flawless.

"What does a lady dress like, exactly? And who decided what a lady looks like? What bearing should one’s clothing have on one’s identification as a feminist? This is exactly the kind of misogynist policing we’ve fought tooth and claw against for decades, and to level this line of “reasoning” at Beyoncé is not only antifeminist, it is despicable." (x)

Anastasia dip brow pomade dupe?

I’d say the closest drugstore alternative out right now would be NYX’s Brow Gels! They are waterproof, long lasting and more creamy like Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade. NYX’s is more of a gel rather than a cream but you can still get a really similar finish as the Dip Brow!

You could even use water poof gel eyeliner! The only downside to that is you really only have different shades of brown to choose from but using a gel liner will give a similar finish as Dip Brow.

Why are white people still pointing their finger, shaking their neck and saying: “Oh no they didn’t?” as comedy?

They haven’t found something new to steal to replace it yet.
