Last night was an epic night for both HBO and the House of Uni family! At 10:30pm it was the premiere of actress, writer, producer, director and web series creator Issa Rae's new comedic series on HBO called Insecure! Known for her hit YouTube web series Awkward Black Girl, Insecure is partially based on the web series. So what does that mean for House of Uni? Our amazing lippies are featured in season 1 of the show! In episode 1 you can catch Issa applying a few of our lippies in the bathroom scene (see gif clip above of her applying our matte black lipstick in "Wicked.") This is huge news and opportunity for an indie brand like ours and it was a pleasure to work with such an amazing team! Be sure to catch the series on HBO Sundays at 10:30pm or you can download the HBO Now app to see more of The Calypso Collection on the show.
Below are some more images from the bathroom scene.
