Must Have Orange and Coral Blushes

I promise it feels like Spring is really here now. Yea we just had a little bit of snow, but I think that was Old Man Winter’s last blow. I’ve been doing some Spring Cleaning  with all of my makeup and I came across several orange blushes that have always tickled my fancy along with a couple of new ones that I’ve recently added to my collection.  Two of my faves are the Maybelline Master Glaze and the new Makeup Forever HD Blush. I give all the deets in the video below so check it out and after your done

Yellow Handbag, Solange

I’ve been in search of the perfect yellow handbag. It doesn’t have to be super neon bright but just fun enough to be fashionable and turn heads.  I have my eyes set on this Yellow Chloe Marci’ Mini Shoulder Bag, but since I have to be a responsible adult and make sure all bills are paid before I go out and buy this darling it may take me quite a while. Depending on the shade, some yellow handbags can even be worn during the fall and winter for that extra added pop of color.    Chloe Marcie Mini Shoulder Bag,

Remember when I gave you guys all those juicy lip swatches of the Milani Cosmetics Color Sensational Lip Glosses? Well, get ready for something special to go on top of them. Introducing the Milani Cosmetics Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss!! There are about fourteen shades in all and I have ten swatched for you. The Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss delivers moisture and intense shine.

Hair Cuttery, Natural Hair, Tapered Cut, Blonde Natural Hair

  Yep! I changed my hair again!! *Twirls* I honestly believe hair is an accessory. It’s not something you should obsess over, but you should just have fun with it. Last week I was drooling over this picture of a natural haired beauty with a platinum blonde box hair cut. Yes, I am linking you to my instagram again and that means you should follow me! Now Back to the subject at hand, my hair. So after falling in love with that picture my husband who seems to be a little bit more into my hair styles than I am

Lord and Taylor 424 5th Collection

I really enjoy shopping in Lord and Taylor, this store usually has great finds and sales on items that I won’t find anywhere else. Did you see the Michael Kors bag that I scooped for a mere $158? Yep, I only paid $158 for a Large Michael Kors Saffiano Tote all thanks to the amazing deals and coupons that Lord and Taylors provides their customers with. They honestly keep me coming back as loyal shopper. Today I received an email featuring the new Lord and Taylor 424 5th collection. This collection has what I believe to be 165 pieces, mostly

Asunta-Sheriff, The Makeup Show New York

Whenever I go to The Makeup Show New York I always pick up something that changes my life. No, I don’t mean makeup, I mean in amazing tips, tricks and advice that I learn from the speakers. Yes, shopping for Makeup is fun, but if you really want to change the way you view your artistry, freelancing or any aspect of your career taking time to listen to Headliners is a must. Last year Eve Pearl taught me something that changed my entire blogging career. She taught me how to take charge of my blog and know my worth. I

Zoya Magical Pixie Dust Cosmetically Challenged

    Hands down, Zoya has the best textured polish nail polish. I’ve tried several other brands but none come close to Zoya’s formula. I’ve been trying my hardest to grow my nails out so that I can get great swatches of these gorgeous polishes, but no avail. Life has been skressful! Yes, I said skressful. My PhD program has decided to turn up, or I’m just so vested that I end up biting all my  nails off when things don’t work out the way I want them to. This is a daily occurrence unfortunately. I did notice that this

Today I decided to dig into the closet and pull out some items that I hadn’t given much love to. I’ve always been a huge fan of Phillip Lim’s Pashli handbags and on a whim I was able to score one from Shopbop.com. Surprisingly I found the shoes that I’m wearing at the top of my closet when I as digging for another pair that I didn’t even find. I’d never worn them before but I felt they went with my outfit perfectly! I decided to pair this handbag up with a Phillip Lim for Target blazer that I purchased

If you follow me on Instagram, (which I know you all are doing anyway) you probably saw the a picture I posted featuring me before applying makeup and afterwards using the Dermablend Quick Fix Concealer. I’ve spoke about my skin disorder before here on Cosmetically Challenged, because honestly my skin disorder is how I came up with the name. I turned to Makeup and Cosmetics because I was tired of the stares and negative comments I would receive from people. It’s even gone as far as being handed domestic violence pamphlets and someone insisting that I seek help. Recently I

Cosmetically Challenged OOTD, Alexander Wang Rockie Duffel

Guess what guys!! It was over 50 degrees outside today and I did not know how to act! I couldn’t wait to go outside and just feel the warm sun on my skin.  Today I decided that the theme for my Outfit of the day would be playing with fabrics so I went with lace, pleather and suede. I accented this look with my new Alexander Wang Rockie Duffel bag that I am absolutely in love with to ad a bit of color. Compared to last weeks Outfit of the day  where the photos were ubber awkward how do you think
