Benefit Ms. Behavin or Ruby Vibes.

You have to call the 866-astarte number listed on the website.

You can ask for a list of colors. Karen the owner is very nice. Tell her that Lakitha from New York referred you.

Its hard to say, but I think any deep/burnt reds or reds with an orange hue would look gorgeous on African American skin tones!

i love milani pencils. they're cheap and you get alot of color with minimal application. sounds like we may have similar complexions and i love red velvet. if you want to go brighter try bonfire. you can tweek it if the color is too intense.
