Need a Mint?

[button link=”#” target=”_blank” color=”default” shape=”rounded” size=”small” align=”center”]Affiliate Links[/button] This weekend I decided to go for the Monochromatic look. Mint green and Teal are some of my favorite colors. It’s taken every inch of me not to incorporate the colors all over my house. When paired together, the right shades brings about this lovely Monochromatic look that’s not overly matchy matchy. I even took the trend all the way to my nails with two Mint colors from Gelish that I am absolutely loving right now. I scored a complete Gelish Polish Starter kit complete with the curing lamp for only $69…

Maybelline “The Nudes” Palette Review/Swatches and Give Away!

  Ohhh Wee!!! My nudes have been leaked!! I heard rumors that Maybelline was launching a large size palette but when it comes to brands like this you can never be too sure . I spotted this palette while shopping the beauty aisles at my local Bed Bath and Beyond.  Maybelline The Nudes Palette comes in a sleek black case with a window that showcases a mixture of 12 matte and shimmer eyeshadows. The palette retails for $9.99, I feel this is a great deal seeing as two quads can run almost over that much. On the back of the…

When Bright Neon Nail Polish has Been Over Done..

[button link=”#” target=”_blank” color=”default” shape=”rounded” size=”small” align=”left”]Press Sample and Affiliate Links[/button]   Every year nail polish companies put out their most bright and vivid colors for summer. IMO if you have last years neons then you basically have this years neon. I am a recovering nail polish hoarder though so this may seem blasphemous to some people.Honestly though, not everyone can pull off neon during the summer. Some people work in office settings where they’re nail polish must be demure. Instead of going full out flouro neon this year Maybelline decided to do things and instead of giving us a…

These Baked Bronzers just weren’t Baked Long Enough

[button link=”#” target=”_blank” color=”Black” shape=”rounded” size=”small” align=”right”]Press Samples and Affiliate Links[/button] We all love Milani Cosmetics Baked anything. They’ve had our hearts since their Baked Eyeshadows and Blush first came onto the scene back in oh say 2011? I was hoping the Limited Edition Matte Baked Bronzers would fall right into that category but alas I really don’t think they cooked them long enough for them to be used by all skin tones. While there are already three Baked Bronzers on the shelves the Milani Cosmetics Matte Baked Bronzers are the only two in Matte formula. They come in the…

Easy Moisturizing with St. Ives

Finding the perfect lotion to fit your every need is like staying one step ahead of Shonda Rhimes when it comes to the television show Scandal. It just ain’t gonna happen, bruh! Personally, I like a lotion that’s hydrating, has staying power but is also not greasy, smells good but won’t make me gag or want to take a shower because the scent is too strong.  I honestly thought that perfect lotion was nowhere to be found, that is until I was introduced to the new St. Ives® Fresh Hydration Lotion Spray. The Fresh Hydration Lotion Spray gives you moisturized skin…

Dumping Your Old Lipstick for a New Hottie

I thought I owned the perfect reddish orange lipstick. I could have sworn it was nestled safely in the lipstick compartment of my Alex drawer until I tried out the new Black Up Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in 34M and saw the light. Black Up Cosmetics is the first dedicated upscale beauty brand to magnify black and mixed beauties. I’ve been wanting to try this brand out for the longest but the only issue is that they’re based in Paris and well with shipping cost they can be a tad bit hard to get. I finally got my chance this year at…
