In May 2020, Glossier committed to providing $500,000 in grants to support the next generation of beauty industry leaders. Nearly 10,000 (!) applications later, we’re so excited to share that LUNA MAGIC was 1 of 16 companies selected for this program!
As beauty lovers, we've always admired the vision of Emily Weiss and team Glossier, so for us being part of this beauty program has been a dream come true. As part of the grant program, we have received a monetary grant to assist with our growth plans and receive mentorship support from their executive leadership team. Fun perks have included being featured in a dedicated landing page along with the other winners on the Glossier website. The beauty editors of the brand's blog, Into The Gloss, also reviewed our bestselling UNO eyeshadow makeup palette and Gostosa, our red-orange matte liquid lipstick. Below is a snippet of the feature and we couldn't agree more!
"Sisters Mabel and Shaira Frías founded Luna Magic to celebrate their Afro-Latina, Dominican-American heritage through vibrant color. Wait, wait: before you minimalists slink back off to your beige bedrooms, you should know that the Fríases brightly-hued world makes space for you, too. Take their Uno palette for example, which features 12 buttery, high-pigment shadows in crowd-pleasing shades. (Those who prefer a natural look will hit pan on the range of eye-enhancing matte browns, while makeup creatives will gravitate towards Dinero, a shimmery mauve with a bright turquoise flash.) Even their take on red lipstick keeps everyday wear in mind—Gostosa, a warm almost-orange, looks soft and feels lightweight. Whether you’re dipping a toe into color or ready to run a bath, Luna Magic has something for everyone."
