Great news for Black women and other women of color: There is a beauty box specifically curated for you.
Is your current beauty box not black friendly? Is it missing a conditioner that detangles your spirals and quenches your hair? Or, a matte lipstick pigmented enough to shine on Black skin?
If so, then COCOTIQUE, a beauty box in partnership with Hype Hair magazine, has got you covered.
Hype Hair magazine, the perennial hairstyle bible for Black women who pined for haircuts like Toni Braxton and weaves like Beyoncé offers the aforementioned, plus a selection of products for both natural and relaxed hair.
“With Hype Hair’s long, rich history of being a source of beauty and hair information for women of color, I thought this collaboration would be a perfect fit,” said Dana Hill, founder and CEO of COCOTIQUE.
COCOTIQUE’s appeal lies in its impressive library of goods that features over 60 brands such as African Pride, Crème of Nature, Carol’s Daughter and PhytoSpecific. There’s even booty for make up fiends, too. COCOTIQUE features lipstick, mascara and more from Revlon, Black Radiance and Black Opal.
“We are thrilled about collaborating with COCOTIQUE for this program,” said Adrienne Moore, Editor-in-Chief of Hype Hair magazine. “Giving our market the opportunity to receive collections of wonderful hair and beauty products is an exciting way for us to engage with our readers and be a part of their beauty experience.”
Moore’s excitement is understandable. COCOTIQUE’s box of goodies for June featured one full size tube of Black Radiance mascara, six highly pigmented, matte lipstick samples by Black Opal and haircare products from Aphogee, Miss Jessie’s and more.

Description: COCOTIQUE’s beauty box for June. Was it worth the hype? Read my review here. Needless to say, I have new appreciation for the beneficial properties of styling creams–especially ones with food inspiring names like buttercreme, butterlicious and pudding perfection. But, I’m still on the fence about runny leave-in conditioners. Again, found out why by reading my review here.
