My e.l.f Cosmetics Favorites

Ever super regret waiting too long to get hip to a product? That’s basically me right about now. I’ve been hearing and seeing E.L.F cosmetics everywhere, but I never stopped to pick up any items for myself. I’m going to put this on the fact that I haven’t really been shopping my local Target aisle for beauty products, and if you’re not buying that then okay sue me, but list yall… I am head over heels with the latest E.L.F beauty products that I’ve been able to try out thanks to being a member of the #elfbeautysquad. I decided instead…

L’Oreal Infallible Paints Lip Color Review and Swatches on Medium Brown Skin

2017 is going to be a big year for me as I will finally be graduating with my doctorate. I don’t think it hit me until last Monday when I realized that it was all finally coming to an end and anxiety bomb rushed me. I feel like now I’m just a huge ball of “what next?”. I’m walking around with a fake smile on my face when I’m slowly dying inside with fear of the unknown.  Times like these I’m so glad I have Being Melody as an outlet to escape all that. It’s the little things that make…

My Thoughts on the Shea Moisture Peace Rose Oil Complex

If you were to look in my bathroom closet, you’d find an array of Shea Moisture Products for hair and body. The Shea Moisture line has been a consistent staple in my natural hair regimen since going natural years ago. During one of their BOGO sales, I introduced myself to their Lavender and Wild Orchid body line when my body had these weird itchy flare ups.  The thing about Shea Moisture is that with over 20 collections you’re bound to find something that fits you. So, don’t get discouraged when the first set of products you try don’t work. It’s…

Must Have Red-Orange Lipsticks for Medium Brown Skin!

We all have that one signature color lipstick that we like to wear. For some is a bold and sexy red and for others, it’s a soft subtle nude. I always thought my go to color was red, and then I went on this stint where I was all about the nudes because who doesn’t love a good nude (see my favorites here). Now I still love a good nude, but after trying out the Sleek VIP Lipsticks I realized that I may have found my “spirit color”. It was almost like I didn’t choose the color the color just choose…

How I Keep it Cute and Dry Under Pressure.

I teamed up with Dove to share to the new Dove Dry Spray. All opinions are my own #TryDry #dovepartner  Have you ever thought about what makes you feel beautiful?  Do you find yourself drawn towards certain fragrances or shades of colors?  I used to be all about bold bright colors and patterns, but now I find myself wanting softer touches in everything.  This may be because my life is super hectic right now and all I want to do is look around and see things that make feel happy, calm, and loved. When I’m running around getting my girl boss…

Repair Dry Hair with Dove Nutritive Solutions Daily Moisture Shampoo

This post is sponsored by Lunch Box all opinons are my own. Last week I shared with you how I was treating my dry brittle hair  switching up my regimen to one that was full of moisture. To keep hair feeling great you have to maintain that delicate balance between moisture and protein. After realizing I had way too much protein my hair I’ve been going through my ridiculously large stash of beauty products and making sure that only products that are going to give me a good moisture treatment are in the forefront. I like to switch things up…

Essence Beauty Box keeps My Needs in Mind.

The other day I received a pleasant surprise in the mail in the form of  the EssenceBeauty box. Now if you’re an avid reader of Being Melody then you know how I feel about Beauty Box’s or subscription boxes period. They can be hit or miss. Either you’re gonna get stuff you really love or you’re going to get a box full of unwanted samples. I wasn’t sure what to expect with the Essence Beauty Box but I was optimistic since it is a box curated specifically for Women of Color. At least, with this, box the good news is…
