Pat McGrath Labs Metalmorphosis 005 Kit Review, Swatches, and How to Use it!

I missed out on the last Pat McGrath Labs kit that came out, and I was okay with that. I’d talked myself into believing that I didn’t necessarily need a highlighter that magically turned you into the everything that dreams or made of.

Make Up For Ever Pro Fusion Light Highlighters

Out of all the highlighters I own, I tend to only reach for one because it gives me that perfect highlight. That product is Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Duo which comes with a bronzer and a highlighter. The only problem with this product is that I only use the highlighter leaving the bronzer untouched since it really isn’t my s it’s basically a waste of money and space. Being a huge MUFE fan, I was super excited to see when they launched the Pro Light Fusion Highlighter as an answer to my prayers for a single highlighter.  The…

Melody’s About Face – A Chemical Peel Series

During my facial at About Face Skincare last month (which you can read about here), it was recommended that I undergo a series of chemical peels to help even out my skin tone and deal with that pesky hyperpigmentation. I thought I had my hyperpigmentation under control because before it was something serious, but I still have areas that are darker than other areas of my skin like around my mouth and eyes and cheeks that need some additional help. Hyperpigmentation is very common skin condition among women of color and can be caused by a plethora of things such…
