LOTD || Morphe 35M Boss Mood palette

HI Loves,

It feels like it’s been forever since I incorporated a makeup look on my blog, but today that changes! I’m in absolute awe of Morphe, they just give me everything I want in makeup, they consist of pigment, brushes, and best of all great prices; like what more can you ask for. Recently I was able to get their old but new 35m Boss Mood palette for $10 during Ulta’s 25 day Christmas countdown, now normally I don’t really partake in this event, but I was in need of some much needed makeup retail therapy. The Boss Mood palette consist of 35 shades from neon green to the blackest of black. I love their collection of shades; the shimmer shades are pigmented AF, and relatively smooth in texture, they glide on the lid so easily and pick up real nice. The other matte shades are really gorgeous, they have a variety of shades neon, army, berry, reds; the only color the palette need was a pink to be damn near perfect.

Anyhow I did create this purple/cranberry look using just about all the purple tones and a few hints of reds. I hope you enjoyed this very minimal post, I’ll be back with more Makeup MOndays!!

Let’s see Beyonce + Adidas, this collaborative duo can only equal a perfect outcome! Beyonce has given the world a glimpse into the latest sports collection and has managed to add unequivocal chic-ness to the line. Beyonce has been giving subtle teasers on Instagram; like sporting Adidas bling on her ears & grill, showing off her Ivy braids, but we didn’t get the real tea, until Elle magazine featured the “Queen of subtle hints” for their January issue. The collection showcases a range of clothing including bodysuits, Jackets, T shirts, as well as featuring the new line of sneakers. I’m sold, here’s all my coin!

As featured, the collection consist of an array of clothing, sweat suits, accessories, and looks into Ivy Parks first take on footwear. The line is presented in the shades of maroon, orange, and white; hitting the mark of fall tones, as well as adding the signature Adidas 3 stripe; in addition to the already BOSS collection it also have additional looks included. The price ranges from $25-250, which is quite sufficient being the line consist of a variety of looks.

Already the collection has received its seal of approval from major stars like Kelly Rowland, Cardi B, Janelle Monae, Reese Witherspoon, Yara Shahidi, and many more. The collection is set to be released on January 18. So, other than me who else will be shopping the looks from the sports line?

Fall in love with Naturally Skincare, Seriously!

Hi Lovelies, 

( sorry for the long time off, I literally have been college bound, to my fellow students, you know what I mean, but I’m baacckk!!!)

Welcome Fall weather, changing leaves, Gigantic sweaters, pumpkin spice (everythingg), & the arising new products that we will need to bear on our vanity. Over the years I have learned a ton about skincare like the fact you need this to help this, and this for that, and it kind of reminds me of a domino effect, sort of. For the past few months, I had the chance to get into a new skincare brand, that has me Fall- ing for their products ( see what I did there).

So recently I got the chance to work with Naturally Serious skincare, which is clinically tested to repair damaged skin, and renew healthy skin and strengthen moisture. This brand prevents pollution in the skin; also reverse aging. Naturally Seriously, has skin warrior ( moisturizer), Major moisture gentle cream cleanser/ mask, cold- pressed peel pads, and Anti- dark circle eye cream/ lip service bundle. Each product targets a skin problem, I was gifted the dark circle and lip service bundle.

Z E R O * B A G G A G E ( Anti Dark Circle eye cream)

When it comes to bags, and saggy dark circles, I never worried about it, but now that I’m in my 20’s and pull all night-er’s I can no longer skip this step. The anti dark eye cream, naturally detoxifies the skin of air pollutants, UV rays, and reverses aging. The moisturizing cream helps to fight against fine lines, puffiness, while adding moisture to the skin. I love this cream, I have been using it for a little over 2 months and though it resulted in a subtle change, it’s still visible. The extract of caffeine, olive oil, & beeswax, keeps my skin moisturized and gives me that awake look, even before I have my cup of coffee. I use this cream after my morning routines, every morning, this allows my skin to naturally absorb the product throughout the day, and gives time to settle in to work its m a g i c. 

L I P * S E R V I C E ( 3 in 1 Lip serum)

I have tons of lip products; matte, gloss, exfoliater, you name it— but there is a point where my lips are screaming STOOOPPPPP!! The lip service 3 in 1, helps to hydrate, re-texturize, & exfoliate all in 1 tube. This lip cream is perfect for getting off hard; dry matte glosses, and softening your lips to it’s natural form.  The ingredients include: Jojoba seed oil, Sunflower seed oil, apple extract, free of parabens & preservatives. This lip cream does wonders, I love this product, this is something that should be carried throughout the cold seasons.

What’s your favorite skincare product? Are you a Fall – fanatic, leave your comments below! xx,

WTF??? $1 Glitter Pots | Fixate Cosmetics

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?

Fixate1.3.pngfixate1.png

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.
