When you think of popular lipstick brand The Lip Bar, what's the first thing that comes to mind? Well, lips, right? For years, the budding black-female-owned cosmetics company has grown rapidly, and its lip products have been the talk of the beauty community for its rich formulas, vibrant pigments, and super-affordable price point. But with summer here, it's about time that the lippie masters whom people can't get enough of dropped something different. 

So when The Lip Bar announced that it would be dropping its "first product outside of lip launches" this weekend at Essence Music Festival, fans couldn't wait to know what it was. The secret's out! The Lip Bar just launched a bronzer and blush duo in shades for every skin tone. We're already losing it. 

Last week, ahead of one of summer's biggest weeks in music, The Lip Bar teased something special. 

In preparation for Essence Fest, the brand announced that it would be dropping a brand-new, non-lip product. 

"*squeals with excitement*," the brand wrote in an Instagram post. "Our first product outside of lip launches 07.08.19 and it is SO PRETTY!!!! Essence Babes get the first look this weekend!!! Y’all ready??? The Lip Bar is more than lip."

And this week that mystery product finally arrived.

"The Lip Bar is ALL GLOWN UP and taking things to the next level! Introducing our FIRST complexion-enhancing product, Fresh Glow Two-Layer Bronzer + Blush Duo, a stacked compact featuring a luminous bronzer and highlighting blush to make it easier than ever to glow on the go," the brand shared on Instagram.

The big reveal? The lipstick brand's first complexion product. A two-in-one powder compact that's all about giving you that effortless summer glow. 

"The Lip Bar is moving beyond lip with our all-new FRESH GLOW 2-layer stacked face compact!!! Complete with a luminous bronzer + blush duo, it's perfect for easily creating that "lit from within" fresh glow while on the go. Available in 5 complexion based shades exclusively on and at @thelipbardetroit, head to our stories to learn more and to find your perfect shade!" the brand announced.
