  • Just as Oprah empowered her to start Big Girl Cosmetics, Russell now seeks to empower other women with her products by giving them the confidence to take control of their bodies and create their own definition of beauty. Her favorite Big Girl products include the ginger almond body butter and shine lipgloss collection.

    * - - April 23, 2010 - -- CHICAGO – (April 23, 2010) – Established a mere five years ago, Big Girl Cosmetics exudes the resounding themes of beauty, quality and empowerment. Women of color all over the country are being introduced to the up and coming cosmetic line through social media, trunk shows and various editorial features. Signature retailers such as Target, Nordstrom and Ulta have taken notice as well, showing genuine interest in the company’s staple beauty products such as the "Diva Gloss" and the almond oil infused "Body Butter."

  • "On the show she [Oprah] said, 'We are not only giving away cars here, we are changing the way people live their lives,'" Russell said. "I thought: BAM there it is! Go for it! So I decided to sell the car and use the profit as seed money to start Big Girl Cosmetics."

    With their newfound notoriety, Big Girl Cosmetics is sweeping the nation and providing women with a "complete" cosmetic line offering dazzling eye shadows, natural and silky smooth powders, moisturizing lip sticks and sinful glosses. Big Girl Cosmetics is designed to help women make "grown up" decisions about skincare and feel secure in choosing the right products for their beauty regimen.

  • On April 24 – 26, Big Girl Cosmetics will showcase their DIVA and Signature Collections at the 2010 Proud Lady Beauty Show at the Tinley Park Convention Center in Tinley Park, IL. The Proud Lady Beauty Show is the nation’s leading educational event for the beauty industry. Major beauty companies, such as, Nairobi, Soft Sheen Carson, and Dudley will be exhibitors during this prestigious beauty industry event.

Big Girl Cosmetics Reviews - Total Beauty & Barber

Tell us a little about your motivation to take a free car from Oprah and create your own brand, Big Girl Cosmetics. I was really inspired by Oprah. During the taping, she said, “We are doing more than just giving away cars. We are improving the way people live their lives.” A few weeks before the show, I was diagnosed with Lupus. I was trying to figure out what my next step would be, if I was to stay on my current career path (stressful, long hours) or try something a little different. After the show, I came home and told my husband I was selling the car and using the proceeds to start a cosmetics company.
