Tarte Kiss Bliss Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint and Crayon Set. (Review and Swatches)

March 27, 2017 // 2 Comments

Matte lipstick is in and there are so many matte lipstick brands out there I am willing to try, in search for the best matte lipstick. Obviously, I am a black woman and finding lipstick shades for dark skin can be challenging because not every shade works with my skin tone.  I am sure that no matter what color you are, you have to figure out if a color works with your skin or if it will have you walking around looking like a clown.  Which none us want. In any case I bought this tartiest lip paint from, and it was the Crayon Set Holiday limited edition for 2016. The set came with 5 different [...]

A Step By Step Guide On How To Putting On Fake Nails

March 6, 2017 // 0 Comments

I used to always go to the nail shop and get my nails done. For the past few years I have not really had the time to go to the shop and I did not really want to even spend the money to always go to the shop.  Because going to the shop meant that you have to go every two weeks for a fill in once your nails started growing out.  It started to become an expensive habit. Fake nails have come a long way in the world. There are designs that are more versatile and they pop right off when you are ready for a new style.  Plus when you want to go somewhere nice you do not have to go to the shop to [...]

Pigmented Eye shadows Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Palette and Masquerade Palette Review and Swatches

February 7, 2017 // 2 Comments

These make up palettes are giving me life. I actually found out about these by accident. I saw them on someone’s Instagram feed and thought that the palettes were really amazing and pigmented and so I decided to try Juvia Place.  I will admit that these palettes were a little bit more expensive than I would have liked.  But the makeup is good quality and the palettes were a lot bigger than what I thought it was going to be. I do not know much about the Juvia Company aside from things listed on their site. Such as them being animal and cruelty free and that they have African inspired [...]

What’s in My January 2017 Onyx Box? #Onyxbox Review and Unboxing

January 30, 2017 // 4 Comments

The Onyx Box subscription is one of my favorite subscription boxes so far this month.  My first favorite is my BeautyCon box (click here for my review on that) and this one is in second.  My least favorite is my Boxy Charm box (click here to read my review on that box), and this box was about the same price as  Boxy Charm, yet it came with more products over all and came with more products I will actually use. To give you a little back story on Onyx Box, it is specifically made for women of color.  I feel like the makeup that comes in the box is pretty versatile and all women can use it, [...]

What’s In My January Boxy Charm Box (Unboxing and Review)

January 25, 2017 // 1 Comment

So I decided to add Boxy Charm to my long list of subscription boxes that I want to try this year. And as soon as I got my box I decided to cancel the subscription the next day.  Unlike Ipsy (check out my January bag here) and Birchbox you cannot customize the things you get.  So what I was left with was a bunch of things that I did not want.  That added on top of the fact that Boxy Charm cost $21, this box was a big no thank you to me. What Boxy Charm does boast about is that they give you 5 full size products. Which I felt was a positive, but if your box is a miss then you have 5 full [...]

What’s In My Ipsy Glam Bag. January 2017.

January 17, 2017 // 1 Comment

This month was the first month that I received my Ipsy bag, which is a monthly subscription service of beauty products. What I love about Ipsy is that you can chose the things that you want to get and they tailor the products to you. Which is important because I do not want a lot of things that I do not want or need.  In any case when I got my bag for this month I was pleasantly surprised because I will use all the things that are in it. The Bag: Check out the bag. With Ipsy, you get a new bag each month which I feel like is another product in itself. You  have eyes to look at the bag so I [...]
