Best Dressed | The Oscars 2017

Hi Lovelies,

So the most prestigious of award shows came on Sunday night, The Oscars, which was hosted by another great late night host Jimmy Kimmel. This award season has been the year of Late Night hosts, Jimmy Fallon, Kimmel and James Corden all have hosted the biggest award shows this year, and have been amazing, and while I would love to discuss the best moments of last nights show, I will only be discussing fashion, before it get to long of a post. LOL

Now, I love nothing more than talking about my favorite stars and what their wearing, so lets begin!!

“Women in White”

I love a woman in white, it usually looks so beautiful against the red carpet, and normally gets best dressed..so it’s no surprise these lovely ladies would make it on the list. Naomie Harris, Chrissy Teigen, Karlie Kloss, and more all dawned white gowns, but not only that they Chrissy, Karlie, and Darby all had a long “caped shoulder” design on their gowns, now I loved it, It was so inventive, and reminded me a little of Gwenyth Paltrow in Tom Ford and Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren. My favorite out of them all was probably Darby Stanchfield in Georges Chakra,  the ruffle pattern at the bottom and along the shoulder was just so gorgeous, and her hair looked amazing with minimal jewels. I just loved her look so amazing.

“Ladies in Red”

Viola Davis and Ruth Negga both looked stunning in red. Viola Davis who wore Armani, looked amazing, she also debuted a sassy short cut, I really loved her look, gown after gown all award season she has looked her best and after winning for her role in fences she is my leading lady, I will now be looking for her to show up every award season, to WOW us with her powerful presence. Ruth Negga wore Valentino for the second time I’m really starting to think she’s the face for the designer brand. ” One time, STUN me < two time SLAY MY LIFE” she absolutely looked so beautiful and she is really winning me over with her beauty. I really love red on red, a lot of people think you can get drowned out, but these women obviously drowned me because LITERALLY DEAD!!LOL

“Hidden Figures”

The “hidden Figures” cast all looked gorgeous Taraji, Janelle, and Kirsten looked super sexy in Black. Taraji P. Henson has been killing the red carpet all season and at the Oscars she showed her award winning look. She wore a black velvet off the shoulder gown by Alberta Feretti. One gown that stole a moment was Janelle in Elie Saab, this intricate and very “complicated” detailed gown looked amazing. We know that black n white are the nominated actresses go to color, but this dress had beautiful hints of colors thanks to the jewels, she couldn’t have looked more beautiful.

“Metallic & Shimmer”

Emma Stone always kills it on the red carpet, she wore Givenchy, which took me for a loop, I thought she was going to Valentino. Emma looked so beautiful, she had so much shimmer fringe that had so much movement, and the camera caught the right light to show all the shimmer effect. Jessica Biel wore a gold Kaufman Franco gown that sparkled and shined. Jessica looked way better than the Oscar it self. I really loved both gowns but I think between the two Jessica’s dress killed it.

Well that’s all I hope you enjoyed my best dressed post. Be sure to “LIKE” this post. Did you watch the Oscars? Who was your best dressed? Who was your worst? let me know in the comments.

Hi Lovelies,

If you follow me and my blog post, you know I love beautyspin, which is my go to site for all my latest beauty buys, I recently went on their and tried to stay within my beauty budget (no blogger wants to be broke before the holidays, AM I Right)? 

This month I brought a perfume and 3 eyeliners from 3 of my favorite drugstore brands, so lets start with the perfume.

I love Perfume and Body splashes, they just compliment a person. I wanted to try something I never heard of before, and Police to be the Queen, showed up. I do a lot of shopping and I’ve never heard of the brand.I did some research on the brand, and found out that it was an Italian fashion brand, that carry more than just perfume.

The packaging is very interesting, I love how the bottle is decorated, and gives me the sense of Bad ass-ery. I love the smell as well, its strong, yet sweet, it kind of reminds me of the Marc Jacobs daisy. I loved the smell, within the first week, I got a ton of compliments from random strangers at the mall. I highly recommend this fragrance, it smells amazing.

My last 3 buys were eyeliners, I brought 2 lilacs and a nude. I love the eyeliners I purchased , the consistency and richness of the eyeliners were really creamy, and just glides over the eye. I brought from 3 different brands Rimmel London, Max Factor, and Nyx cosmetics. I really like all 3 colors, and don’t worry I’ll be doing a look very soon with these eyeliners. here are the links if you would like to have these on your vanity.

NYX Butter Glosses | Review + Swatches

HI LOVES,

I’m back guys with another product haul collaborating with Beautyspin, one of my favorite sites, but this time I’m reviewing + swatching the NYX butter glosses. The nyx butter glosses have been around for a while now, so why am I just now just getting them? We have been in the world of Matte liquid lipsticks, and I’ve been completely under a spell to only purchase matte products, but I am now out of it, and wanted to try these lip glosses for myself.

Being that the NYX butter collection is new to the Beautyspin website, I picked my favorite 5, which were; Peaches and Cream, Tiramisu, Devils Food Cake, Red Velvet, and Maple Blondie. The names sound delicious, and smells even tastier. By the time I swatched all the shades I had a craving for all things CAKE.

 All of the shades had a pink undertone to it, the texture lived up to the expectations of feeling like butter on the lips. The application was very smooth, rich, and creamy, it didn’t feel sticky on my lips at all.

Here are the links to the shades. (3 of the shades came together, and 2 were seperare)
