The Strong, Empowered, & Classy Brittney Marshall, founder of My BrownBox, has been working very hard since the very moment the vision to create a beauty, lifestyle and luxury subscription box that caters to women of color, came to her. She stole the attention of our eyes and ears through the tools of social media as she expressed to us a box full of hand-picked products that would be
strategically placed inside with us in mind and delivered to our door monthly. Through the My BrownBox Facebook group to the page to Twitter to Pinterest and even Instagram, our personal interest began to build as the photos and quotes inspired us to not only enhance our lifestyle but our sense of self. With each picture came a new representation of beauty. After centuries of being told how to wear our hair, pose for a picture, make-up our faces and dance in line, My BrownBox has forced us to break free, look at ourselves individually and embrace our natural forms of style and expression. Brittney Marshall and The My BrownBox team captured our hearts as they showcased the diversity that is #BrownBeauty. Whether we wear our hair in it’s natural texture, or we decide to straighten it; we BE badddd, we BE fierce, we BE turning heads and making them wish that they BE doing it…like…THIS! Oh yes, we are all fabulous, so let the celebration begin!
As for the first My BrownBox, I must say, it was truly worth the wait! I see myself as a young independent woman on a budget that gets very curious about different kinds of hair and beauty products all the time but I just can’t afford to purchase every single thing that I may want to sample. So, the $20 that I’ve agreed to pay every month for the My BrownBox subscription is definitely kind to my pockets as I get to luxuriate and pamper myself with awesome new products that are sure to inspire new looks and creativity! From the lip stick from Lip Bar dressed in gorgeous packaging to the “Blissful Lenths Kukinut oil elixir” that can be used as a heat protectant, which I’ve been in need of for a long time; I just feel like I’ve received a box full of treasure.
Check out what was inside My BrownBox!
The Lip Bar: Virgin Cocktail Collection
Shade: Ginger & Tonic
I originally thought the shade would be a little too light for me but after I tried it on my lips, I was quite surpised to see that the nude color was cute on me! Alright My BrownBox, keep teaching me something new!
Nidasii: Cocae Commotion Butter
Ingredients: Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Fragrance
It smells so good!!
Sample packs of Shampoo, Conditioner, Voluminous shampoo and Voluminous Conditioner
Valana Minerals: Sparkle Lips Color Sticks
Shade: Velvet Pomegranate
Sheaterra: Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Face Wash and Mask
Can’t wait to use this one! My face needs some loving!
Curls: Blissful Lengths Kukuinut Oil Elixer
I’ve tried this on my scalp already to revive my press and curl and this is amazing! I’m a natural girl that likes to straighten my hair every now and again and I’ve been needing something good to use as a heat protectant. This oil elixer leaves my hair with a nice shine without weighing it down or it making it sticky. My hair is freely bouncing with a nice flat iron curl. Love it!
Aye Shanti: Notebook

Definitely inspired by the “Lifestyle extra”.
