Four Lipsticks I'm Loving This Season.....

May 17, 2017



Hello My Lovelies.....

I'm sharing my top 4 favorite lip colors for this season! I love how unique and different these colors all are.....

  • The Chanel and MAC lipsticks are both perfect for everyday makeup or natural makeup looks. If you want to know more about the Chanel lipstick, click here for the post.
  • The Stila is my favorite for whenever I do a bronzy or gold makeup looks, and I love how bright and fiery it is. Although it is matte, it is not drying at all and it's long lasting. This lipstick refuses to come off, which can be annoying sometimes when trying to take off your makeup. 
  • The Kat Von D lipstick is one of my favorite purple shades to wear. It is also long lasting and comfortable on the lips, and it doesn't come off so easily.

Chanel.....

May 16, 2017


































Hello My Darlings.....

One of my beauty goals this year is to purchase lipsticks from luxury makeup brands such as Chanel, Charlotte Tilbury, Dior, Tom Ford, and YSL. Since the ending of last year, Chanel was definitely on top of my list of beauty products to purchase for this year. I wanted to see the hype about the Chanel lipsticks and also test if the lipsticks are color friendly for women of color. I always see reviews about the Chanel lipsticks from women of lighter complexion but not women of color.

The Lipstick:

The lipstick I bought is from the Rouge Allure Velvet collection in the color La Raffinee, and I bought this online at Macy's. I took such a big risk in purchasing this lipstick online without even trying it on in person. I was so scared it would look terrible on me. I am usually skeptical to try lipstick in the pink family, especially the lighter shades. Sometimes they look terrible on me (ugh, the struggle!). 

However, I love this lipstick and how velvety(is that a word?! lol) it feels on my lips. I love the color and it looks flattering on everyone that have tried it so far. It doesn't look chalky on me, rather it looks more like a flattering pinky nude. I love this shade and I will definitely purchase this again. Also, it has become my go-to pink lipstick at the moment until I find a better one. 

This lipstick retails for $37.00 at Macy's. Overall, it is definitely worth the hype and in my opinion, I think this color looks great on women of color. Also, it is so worth the price because after all, "Lipstick is the most valuable weapon in a woman's make-up kit. It has the power to transform the appearance and mood of the person wearing it, and, at the same time, arouses the admiration of everybody else."- Monica Bellucci

I received these complimentary sample products from Influenster! Influenster is a site for people to review products that they have purchased. It is also for great for bloggers or social media influencers to receive free products to review.

This was my first Voxbox that I received from Influenster and I love all the products. I love how they smell and how dewy and glowy they make my skin looks.

PRODUCTS:

Cleanser: it smells like peppermint and I love it. It makes your skin feels so fresh afterwards. As you can see, I'm already out.

Eye-cream: this eye cream is tinted and it illuminates your under-eyes as well.

High-Potency Night Cream: this night cream gives an after glow and a soft skin in the morning.

GinZing morning cream: this cream is extremely light and it glides right on the skin

Charcoal mask: I have used this mask once- I keep forgetting that I have it. But my skin felt nice after wards.

Pink & Green...

May 3, 2017






Happy Wednesday!

I am so sorry I have not posted in a while! I had been so busy with school and some personal things and I can't wait to start blogging consistently during the weekdays this summer.

Well let's get into today's post....

I wore this outfit Easter Weekend and it is one of my favorite color combinations, and the colors are in season this spring. I paired this look with nude heels and gold jewelry. For my makeup, I chose to do a monochromatic look, by doing a magenta eye-look paired with a magenta colored lipstick. This was my favorite outfit during the whole weekend.

STYLE TIP:


  • You can certainly pair together any shade of pink or green and it will look great. However I suggest that you pair a darker shade of green like that of my skirt with a lighter shade of pink. I think it looks much better.
Hope you enjoyed today's post!
