I first learned of SACHA Cosmetics through Beauty Vloggers who frequently use the Sacha Buttercup setting powder as one of the final steps in their beauty routines. It’s Amazon’s #1 best-seller in face powder and it is great for medium to dark skin tones. It’s highly-coveted in the makeup world and beauty lovers appreciate its multiple purposes. The product can be used to highlight, set/bake your concealer or as an all-over face powder. It gives the benefit of shine reduction and keeps your face matte for hours, which is perfect for taking photos.
I decided to check out their website to see other products offered. To my surprise, this company was founded 38 years ago, in Trinidad, by Kama Maharaj. With a vision to “develop a brand of makeup that all our women, regardless of ancestry, could wear”, they believe their brand is the most advanced for Asian, Hispanic, African, Indian and other women of color.
SACHA Cosmetics also has “intense-color, long-wearing, liquid lipstick that applies like a gloss, dries matte and does not transfer. Their Second Skin foundations match every skin tone more perfectly than any other brand while our color-rich eye shadows and blushers look equally exquisite on all skin colors. Their Pro Powder foundation, is the first and only powder foundation ever developed for light, medium and dark skin tones.”
Here are a few company highlights:
SACHA was the Official Cosmetics of the 1999 Miss Universe Pageant, the 2000 Miss USA Pageant and the 2015 Miss Panama Pageant.
Their products are sold in 500 retail outlets in 45 countries and also sold on their website, along with Amazon.
Their Founder, Kama Maharaj was recently selected as the 2016 Caribbean Entrepreneur of the Year, eligible to compete in the Global Entrepreneur of the Year Finals in Monaco, in 2017.
