Not to give away their gifts I decided to share with you some awesome stocking stuffers that any beauty and fashionista in your family would love. 1.  Stila’s Travel Makeup Palette: Stila has several of these. Honestly, they’re like baseball cards. I love them because they’re a complete

Shopstyle 1

Although I’m a beauty blogger I can’t help but share some of my favorite fashion lust, and finds with you all every now and then.  My style is all about whatever catches my eye. I do my best to stay away from trends and fads because I hate spending money on something that is going to go out of style in less than 3 months. Usually when I’m window shopping or browsing the web I look for things that I can pair with multiples items rather than a one time outfit. I also NEVER pay full price, there’s always a

swoop bang

Last February I had Senegalese Twist installed. I hadn’t had braids in years and I wanted to take a break from doing my hair so I decided that they would be the best thing. Everything was going great honestly, the braids didn’t feel too tight around my edges and I had no issues with hair bumps that indicate such. No problems that is until I took my braids out. I noticed thats some of my hair came out with my braids seriously thinning the edges along my right temple. The picture shown above is actually about several months later with

Naked 3 Urban Decay 1

So I told myself I wasn’t going to purchase the Naked 3 palette. I mean do we really need another Naked Palette since we already have 2.5? As always as soon as the word went up I went straight to the website and ordered. Not for me though, honestly this is for you all, my readers. There aren’t many Women of Color with Swatches of the Naked 3 palette up. Usually when the first previews go out a select few Women of Color get the palette, but they post a picture on Instagram and never actually swatch them. So I

Beauty Box 5

  I have never been part of a subscription box program. Well, I guess I did do Julep for a while but that was different because it was completely nail polish. So, when I was offered the chance to review Beauty Box 5 I thought it would be pretty cool and jumped at the chance.  Beauty Box 5 is a subscription program that sends monthly beauty boxes packaged with 5 sample and some full size cosmetics products selected by a team of beauty experts. The subscription service is only $12 per month which is pretty reasonable compared to a lot

Centrix Q Zone Dryer Out of Box

I’ve had my fair share of run in’s with a hair dryer. Their hot, heavy, and noisy. I’m transitioning so I’m taking a lot of care in all aspects of my hair, including the blow drying process. Usually when I blow dry my hair I’m stuck upstairs in my bathroom with the door closed to contain the noise and not disturb my husband and his TV watching.  Anyone else have this dilemma? I recently received the Q Zone Quiet dryer to review, and honey it came at the right time because my previous dryer was on it’s last legs. The

Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington has graced the cover of 5 magazines this year. On every cover she has looked absolutely flawless and has caused me to reconsider taking another bite of my cheeseburger. Twitter has been a complete buzz today with the new Lucky Magazine cover featuring the Scandal Star… except, that’s not really the Kerry Washington, Oliva Pope, Fitz’s boo thang we’ve all come to know and love. Who is this on the cover of Lucky Magazine? If it’s Kerry was the excessive photoshopping needed? Weigh in and tell me what you think.  

Sephora VIB Must Haves

Got your Sephora VIB codes in the mail? Alright, then lets go shopping! I spend a lot of time that I don’t have on the Sephora website and so I finally narrowed it down the top items I think every VIB must own.   1. Sephora’s New Formula X Nail Polish: I’ve heard some AMAZING things about this line of nail polish. I’ve yet to try it out but if nail bloggers all over are swooning at the formula I know I need to own one myself. The set retails for $55 but comes down to $44 with your VIB

xlash week 3 and a half

Hey guys, I’m a bit behind on my Xlash post so I’m coming at you with weeks three and four combined. I’ve been using  this product for a month now so just to recap Xlash  is the number one eye enhancer in Europe and promises to deliver longer thicker eyelashes in just a few weeks. I’ve decided to chart my use of this product over a month. So here’s the big question, is there is a noticeable difference? In comparing week 1 to week 3-4 I don’t think there is a visually noticeable difference in my lashes. When I apply mascara

Milani Sparkle

The Milani Sparkling Top Coat Mascara seemed like they would be the perfect thing for all the Holiday and New Years Eve Parties. They come in three colors Bronze Glare, Golden Eyes and and Silver Gaze. Retail price for each mascara is $4.99 which is a great deal. I applied these to my eyelashes with and without mascara and for some reason I could not get the sparkles to adhere to my lashes. Basically after trying one, two and three coats it was like I just had pieces of glitter randomly on my lashes. Here are swatches of each of
