When the caption says it all: “🔥For Las Bravas🔥The foundation of every Latina is that unapologetic, passionate fire she carries within her. It is her birthright. She brings that unique energy to everything she does – she laughs louder, loves harder, fights more intensely, and ultimately endures more. We learn this resilience from the many icons we have the privilege of claiming as our own and the women who raise us and leave us a legacy of inner power and self-confidence with which to approach all of life. This unique, audacious Latina energy gave life to the Bold Lip Color Stick in Brava – a perfect, go-to, activating red that stokes this inner fire within us and displays it for the world to see.”
