With the 2016 Rio Olympics firmly behind her, Gabby Douglas has focused her attention on becoming a mogul…a beauty mogul, that is. The multiple Olympic gold medalist has teamed up with cosmetics brand Beauty Bakerie to launch her own line of fun and flirty lipsticks.
In the official announcement, Beauty Bakerie had nothing but positive things to say about the first Black woman to win the All Around gold medal in gymnastics.
The Beauty Bakerie statement reads:
When we found out Gabby was looking to create a beautiful line of lipsticks with a brand that carried the best liquid lipsticks (Ahem… did someone say Lip Whips?), we knew we’d struck gold! Gabby is a strong woman whose values, dedication, and poise has inspired so many of us to be and give the best version of ourselves in every situation. Her story epitomizes our better, not bitter, motto as difficulty and hardship has only made Gabby stronger while staying true to her sweet and lovable personality. Her gorgeous Lip Whip set was inspired with all these traits in mind along with Gabby’s knack for all things creative of course!
Douglas went on to express her excitement at the lipstick launch, stating, “I am so excited about this partnership with Beauty Bakerie! I have always wanted to have a lipstick line, and I’m honored to be able to partner with a brand that has an amazing product.”
