fixate2.png

Glitter Fanatics! Like you I love e x t r a sparkle, and believe no look is complete without it, what if I told you, you can get great pigment for cheap. By now, I think every beauty brand, both luxe & Indie, have come out with a glitter formula that only seems to improve every time….So tell me beauty queens do you prefer loose or pressed?

I have had the pleasure of trying plenty of Indie brands, and now I can add Fixate to the mix. Fixate cosmetics blessed my makeup collection with some loose glitters and a really out of this world highlighter, and let’s just say I’m more than impressed with the pricing, and color pay off. After receiving my products, I did a little research on the site, watched Youtube, and after a days pass, I finally opened and tested the items I received.

Glitter Pots

Fixate cosmetics have a choice of 30 glitter pot shades ranging in both cool tone blues to fiery reds, to even a white glitter—Like, what? Each individual glitter, is $2 which compared to a lot of other companies, is not bad at all. I really like these glitter pots, because they can be used on your nails, eyes, and face glitter, so you can definitely get a variety of looks. The shades that I got that I received were Purple reign – ( which is a lilac purple), Black Goddess – (Black w/ hints of navy blue), & fairy dust- ( silver), the color payoff is immaculate, especially for the pricing- a lot of glitters that are normally this cheap are those horrible glitters with that sticky gel / vaseline, uhhh just thinking about gives me chills, but not these glitters, they pick up easily; and are build-able, with the use of a primer of course. You can use your finger, but it applies better with the use of a concealer brush, it picks up more product. I also pat the product in the area I want it, because who rubs in anything, dealing with beauty. I really enjoy the glitters, I’m pretty much a pro at using glitter, but you have to start somewhere, right? This is a great glitter for beginners, or if you’re looking to start doing makeup.

GLOW baked highlighter

When it comes to highlight, I’m pretty much obsessed, sometimes overly, but heyyy we all have our beauty obsessions. I’ve tried so many highlights, I probably could tell you the brand blindfolded— told you, obsessed— It’s just I know what I like & look for in a quality highlight. When I got my highlighter in the mail, I was so excited, and kind of had my thoughts planned as to what to expect. Fixate carries these Glow baked highlighters in shades Twilight, Opulence, & Baked. I received the Baked highlighter, which is a pretty golden shade w/ hints of champagne in it, retailing for $14. The highlighter is baked so you can expect a lot of fall out and tons of glitter, which I’m not mad about. When you swatch the shade it’s super light— almost like you’re swatching a marshmallow, is that a weird description, I can’t really describe it, I just know its soft and full of sparkle. When applying, with the swipe & flick of the wrist, be prepared to endure tons of fall out, but a ton of G L O WWhen applying this baked highlighter it’s best to spray some fix plus setting spray then apply it, this allows it to stay in position, and you can then manipulate the blending quality. Another way is to just wear it as a bronzer and shimmer affect, this option acts almost like the Fenty beauty fairy bomb glitter— and will look just as beautiful for a lot cheaper.

As first impressions go— the products did not disappoint. The glitters and highlighters turned out beautiful, and the brand offers quality beauty products, for a amazing price— Capital on the AH mazing— I will definitely be posting again about the products shown in this post.

besthairbuy |Virgin Hair

Hi Lovelies,

Hair? A topic that is more or less stressful for the average male or female. We have the daily struggles of color changes, whether we want straight or curls, and the obvious tug  war with should I cut it and start over. 

Weaves, braids, wigs, are put on this planet to make life easier. With the constant hassles of damaging hair, weaves are a safe way to change your hair as well as, protecting it from heat, and other negative hair factors. 

besthairbuy, a site that gives you options of virgin, synthetic, and wigs to change your look whenever you get that itch. Now I know the questions that comes next, With so many options, which do I choose for the best results? 

Virgin hair is the best hair to choose from if you want a natural look, what is it about Virgin hair that makes it the top of hair choices? Virgin hair comes in a variety of  Malaysian, Indian, Peruvian, and Brazilian. When it comes to virgin hair, it has natural fibers in that makes it look more natural, and act as natural hair texture, it also last longer when taken care of. Also the price of natural hair is more on the pricey side, rather than synthetic hair. The differences are more apparent with the use of water, and how it dries, as for the variety, each type of virgin hair reacts differently, lets start with Malaysian. Virgin Malaysian hair, is the softest of hair types, also the appearance is shiny, and gives a more natural looking finish. 

maly-st_3bun_01

Indian hair, has a very thick; appearance nor is it as shiny as the Malaysian hair. Indian hair has a range of wavy hair. Indian hair is one of the most natural looking when it comes to the affect it has when wet.

vir7a-indi-body-02(1)

Peruvian Hair, a little coarser and thicker in texture than Indian or Brazilian hair. It blends well with normal African-American relaxed hair textures and medium Caucasian hair textures. The curly texture becomes more curly when wet or washed.

costhair-22-03(1)

Lastly, Brazilian Hair is silkier and shinier in texture than Indian Hair. The Straight textures are not bone straight but tends to curly beautifully at the end. This hair holds curls very well and tends to hold curls longer than the Indian Hair. 

60-virgin-5

Virgin Hair can be pressed, curled, and colored, all without harming the follicles of your underlying natural hair. With virgin hair it will blend in and look more natural when added in as a sew in weave or a full lace front wig. When it comes to Virgin hair, Beyonce, Zendaya, and Yara are all queens who swear by weaves and wigs.

Kenra Professional New Launches

K3

When it comes to my hair, I will go out on a limb to make sure it looks perfect. With so many damages of heat from straightening, curling, and the sun itself, trying to reverse the “heat curse” is a must, and the new Kenra professionals collection does just that.

Kenra Professional’s release of their Snail anti aging collection, is a 5 piece collection that is made to reverse dry; limp hair, and turn back time, you know that time, when your hair was full, youthful, and easy to manage, this collection may become your holy grail, I can definitely say the products are completely worth it.

I’m here to give the scoop to all my beauties!

K9

KENRA SNAIL COLLECTION

The Kenra Platinum Snail collection is an anti aging made to reverse time, on damaged hair, and give its youth back. I know that snail extract is great for the skin, but for your hair? The 3 piece shampoo, conditioner, & cc creme  is made to fight the 10 signs of aging: Dullness, Thinning, Dryness, Frizz, Breakage, Elasticity, Porosity, Scalp Irritation, unmanageability, and Coarse Texture, WHEWW!! that’s a lot. These products are cruelty free.

The Kenra Snail anti aging shampoo, conditioner, and the Snail CC creme, are a trio combined to give your hair the best boost of youth. My hair is very thick and absorbs oils in a blink, and yet my hair still gets limp and heavy with the slightest of cremes. Washing my hair with the shampoo and conditioner, really gets it back to it’s natural state, of being youthful. I have been trying to create a curl pattern, with all the damage, this trio was able to get rid of my brittle hair, and its now able to grow in health. Using the snail extracted CC creme, it gives my hair light moisture, without weighing it down, also NO FRIZZ!

KENRA PLATINUM HEAT BLOCK SPRAY 22

If you were to walk in my bathroom, you would see hella heat protectant sprays, from drugstore to the most luxurious, the problem is, with all the spending you would expect me to have one I can gravitate to, but its always a battle of which will work with the weather today. The Kenra Heat block spray is Enriched with Bee Propolis for unparalleled heat protection, this gives the hair protection against heat up to 450 degrees. I love having straight hair, its more manageable, and is a quick fix when I’m just waking up. I use this spray right before I press my hair, but before I press my hair, I allow the spray to absorb in my hair, and massage it for even distribution.

K6

KENRA SHAPING SPRAY

I never like using shaping sprays, because I knew most of them contained alcohol, which is very harmful to the hair, and can give it that sticky; stiff feeling, you know what I’m talking bout’. When I saw that this professional spray was Alcohol Free, I was overjoyed, I still had my doubts though. The shaping spray allows hold and protection, without hardening and loosing that volume and texture.

Vanity Planet | Zen Goddess Green tea clay mask

zen1

Hi Lovelies,

Just to address the HUmungous gap of me not writing, I have been in school, and that alone is an explanation on its own, but I have been getting numerous things PR & buying the latest, and will be posting like a normal person….great to be back on my BOSS game.

Today I want to talk S K I N C A R E, a topic that I love more than makeup. It’s important to have a regime that is effective, I can’t tell you how many times I have switched out products, between luxury and drugstore brands, I could probably equal it to a semesters’ tuition, no Joke! At the age of, 22, you probably think, “hmm what skin problems?’ but with les stress, and being very active, there are 22 years of scaring, and sun damage, that has not yet healed completely. I have completely stopped listening to TV and have stopped reading into what youtubers use and decided to try things out for myself, unless you’re Zendaya.

 

 

I have been a fan of Vanity Planet, for a while now, they have quality products for the best prices. Recently I got to try out one of their sought out clay mask, I’m more of a sheet mask kind a girl, but the thing I like about mask in raw clay form, you’re able to mix and match ingredients that work best with my skin type. Vanity Planet carries 3 clay mask types; Rose, Charcoal, and Green tea.  I chose to try the Zen Goddess green tea mask, if you don’t know the benefits of green tea, where have you been? Green tea is all about improving skin complexion, and diminishing scarring of the worst sorts. The mask is $22 in between luxury & drugstore, which is right up my price range. 

When it comes to mixing my facial mask, I use honey, lemon juice, Thayers Witch Hazel, and drops of Tea tree oil, all skin brightening components. I use this mask, twice a week, and it really gives you a radiant glow. This is just the first part to my skin routine, this facial is followed by water cleansing, toner, and moisturizer. I really like the clay mask, they are totally worth it, for skin glowing properties and a step to a skin upgrade itself. 

Well that’s my skincare regime that I’ve been using for the past month and a half, super simple & easy. I really love the clay mask, and all its benefits, as well as, the availability of price range, the one thing I would say is in the future, I would love a complete collection toner, moisturizer , etc. 

Have you tried Vanity Planet? If so, what’s your favorite products? Also if you haven’t here are the links to the website, I really recommend the products, they are all spot on, and worth it. If you enjoy post like this, “LIKE” this post, and “comment” your favorite product.

Urban Decay VICE lipstick

Urbandecay

HI Loves,

So it’s no secret that Urban Decay is a HUGE brand, not only that, their VICE lipstick collection has me hooked. The collection varies in mattes, creamy, and satin shades, that has over 100 shades varying from nude to the most vibrant Blue.

When shopping at Ulta I literally get overwhelmed by how many shades are on the shelf, and by the end of the day my arm looks like a piece of art. Recently, I brought 4 shades to add to the collection, and I’m here to share this moment with you guys.

I brought the shades Heroine, Moshpit, Spiderweb, and Back talk, all the shades are different finishes.

  • Heroine/ Blue ( Comfortable Matte)
  • Moshpit / Deep Berry tone ( Cream)
  • Spiderweb/ Satin Red ( Cream)
  • Back Talk / Mauv-y Nudew/ pink undertone ( Comfort matte)

The packaging itself is gorgeous, it makes you excited for the shade inside. The lipstick comes in a gold, and silver gunmetal type packaging, and being that Ruby Rose is the spokesmodel for the brand, I can see the correlation. I love how the lipstick almost looks like a bullet, and how the shape of the lipstick tip is angled in a way that can be applied to the lips comfortably.

When it comes to the formulas of the lipsticks, I find them all to be easy application, I think when people think MATTE, they think “tug n pull” but the mattes in the collection are very smooth when applying and doesn’t take many layers to see pigmentation. The Creamy shades are my favorite, only because it feels like a gloss, almost comparable to the TOO FACED melted lipsticks, these shades are also buildable which is good for transitioning from day to night.

I hope you enjoyed my review, on the URBAN DECAY VICE lipsticks, if you like reviews like this be sure to “LIKE” this post and “comment” if you’ve tried this collection. If so what’s your favorite shade?
