Is it just me or have the “glossy” look taken over, when I open up Youtube, or my Instagram page, there it is, So I thought I’d give a try. Here is my red glossy creation, If you want to achieve this super easy look keep reading……..
L’Oreal True Match Foundation (W7)
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Concealer (Light/Medium)
Haviic Single Eyeshadow / NYX cosmetics Primal pigment shadows
My favorite things to do on my days off, other than drink a ton of coffee & watch reruns of Stranger Things, is relax with a nice facial mask. I have tried every facial mask from clay, to bubble, but one mask that I gravitate to time and time again is the sheet mask. While some mask, seem to extract all the oils, and moisture out my face, sheet mask calms any redness I have on my face, while locking in the moisture.
WHEN FACIAL MASKS
When facial mask is falling into its own category of developing a collection of mask that will take care of any problematic issue, which with skin is A L O T! When has a product line, of 5 mask meant to change the skin fit for the women on the go. Lets talk about each one, shall we.
10 pm | A mask meant for tired skin
Glamour Base | The mask for the perfect primer base, before your makeup routine, begins ( Contains Collagen and peptides to help boost the skin)
Snow Magic |Brightening effects to give you a natural highlight and glow
Travel Mate | Rejuvenating, perfect for the women who rushes out the door]
The Last Choice | Hydrating, When you need a perk of moisture and skin needs a drink of water
Each mask contains a different ingredient that helps boost, tone, moisturize, and firm the skin in a matter of minutes. Ingredients like Chamomile, Aloe Vera, Vitamin B3, etc; things that help the skin to process all those last minute runs, and meetings. The bio cellulose that is held within every sheet mask is able to hold 10x more moisture than any other sheet mask, which allows the mask not to dry as fast. Is that SHADE towards other brands? No, but other brands take notes.
I really like all the mask, the one in particular is the Snow Magic, simply because of its brightening affects. I have had a few dark marks, here and there, skincare has become a priority, keeping it healthy inside and out has changed my views on what products to use and how much I’m willing to spend. The Snow Magic sheet mask, has really great brightening affects, not that it changes your appearance or anything but the fact that it gives me a glow, and moisturizes the areas that are dead dry, I couldn’t stop using it.
These When Sheet mask are available at Sephora, click the link to find out more, about the brand and products.

Time flies, it was just the beginning of June and soon I’ll be back in class cue anxiety
Summer is literally the most debatable season of them all, it super relaxing but, with the sun; hot weather it really takes a toll on your skin, which can have you spending a summers vacation on skin products. In the weeks of being on break I have been trying this new skincare product that claims to put all other products to rest.
I’ve partnered with Brandbacker x Simplicity Skincare to test and review Simplicitys’ dual pump skin renewal Reversal Protection Complex, and here’s my honest opinion.
I tried the Simplicity dual pump for 2 weeks ruling out all my other skincare products, but before here’s a little information on Simplicity:
So how did the idea for Simplicity come about? One day, while at my Esthetician, I was admiring her skin. When I asked her what she used, she told me a very expensive eye cream all over her face and neck! Why? Because effective eye creams are highly concentrated and they do a great many things, from promoting cellular repair to increasing firmness to reducing wrinkles to fighting inflammation. Then I got to thinking wouldn’t it be great to have one cream that could do it all and have it be coupled with a serum that was equally as effective? I started talking to my girlfriends about it and the answer was a resounding yes! Hence the birth of Simplicity Skincare. My Reversal Protection Complex, which is derived by combining my Superior Serum with Moisture to give your skin all it deserves. I have been using it over a year and the results have been amazing!
So Simplicitys’ Dual Pump skincare comes with a dual sided pump, with one side being a light weight serum and the other a moisturizer. The serum contains Jojoba OIl, Aloe Vera, witch hazel, and vitamin E, free of phosphates, and Alcohol. The Moisturizer contains Vitamin B5, Aloe, grapeseed oil, primrose, and chamomile.
Trying the dual pump w/o any other product feels super natural, because its a serum and moisturizer in one, it was less time consuming and within a day I could feel a difference in my skin. I used both in the morning/night after washing my face. The feel of the formulas is super light weight and the consistency doesn’t feel oily, or sticky. Its said to be a anti aging product, which doesn’t just cover aging, the ingredients also target acne, break outs, and blemishes, which I am constantly dealing with.
Since I’ve been using it, my skin feels like it’s being protected from the sun rays, which is a huge factor in aging skin, and a few fine lines on my forehead are beginning to diminish. I feel like if I was to use the rest of this product in a month or 2, I will get the results I’m looking for, but so far so good.
I hope you enjoyed my post on the Simplicity Skincare dual pump Reversal Protection Complex, be sure to “Like” this post, and tell me if you’ve tried it.
I’ve always been late when it comes to getting the latest in beauty, because when you buy one thing there’s a billion that comes out the next day, UUUHHH!! I have been a fan of Too Faced liquid lipsticks, they retail for $21 which is a pretty penny, but you are not just paying for the brand, this liquid lipsticks is mattified to Death. One thing I love is the packaging, it comes in a glass packaging, which is so beautiful, but also is easily breakable. I’m a fan of matte liquid lips and this matte formula is super pigmented, and rich in color, I have a hard time when I wear liquid lipsticks and they are super drying, or streaky in color, but this formula takes a trip to Africa and back to come off. I brought drop dead red and Bend & Snap, which were total opposites when it comes to the color spectrum. Drop Dead Red, is a very deep cranberry Red, super sexy and Fall season, I know Spring time is upon us, but a classic red is for all season, OKKUURRR! Bend & Snap is a very hot Pink, super pigmented and pretty, definitely a pigmented pink.I recommend this brand of liquid lips, trust me…. disappointing, NOTTT!!
I hope you enjoyed the little overview, I will definitely have more post coming, my OOTD’s are coming back and more Beauty post are on the way, getting myself ready for Summer classes has been a process, but I’m back in the game. Tell me if you like Too Faced? If so “LIKE” this post, and “COMMENT” whats your favorite shade in the collection.
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
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.
If you’re a beauty addict like me, then you know that liquid lipsticks have taken over in a BLINK! so when I heard about these new liquid paints from L’Oreal, I was so excited.
So L’Oreal came out with the new Infallible Paints collection, which contains a total of 14 different shades. Out of those 14 I only brought 3 of the shades, subtle I know, but I just wanted to test them out, before I went lip crazy!!
The three shades I purchased were Sultry Sangria, Violet Twist, & Bewitching Bordeaux, to stay in the deep grape/plum family.
I think that these lip paints are above & beyond, and they are super pigmented. When I swatched these shades, badly if I may add, they apply sort of light with just one swatch, but they they are buildable, so if you want a darker shade, it can be achieved. I think that they apply very nice on the lips though, Its really opaque, and has a beautiful gloss finish.
The applicator has a dip in the dough foot, which is great when applying in the corners, I think that the length of the applicator is great, It comes in handy when trying to apply and keep within the lip shape. I really like the lip paints, they can be compared to the Too Faced melted liquid lips, I mean they feel very much like a melted lipstick, the consistency is very nice. As a melted lipstick, it’s not tacky at all, I really like the formula, and the fact that its not sticky, or thick.
That’s all for my first impressions for the L’oreal Paris Infallible lip paints, I hope you enjoyed this little overview. Be sure to “LIKE” and “COMMENT” Tell me what you think ? Have you tried the L’Oreal Infallible Lip Paints? What’s your favorite shade? Leave me a comment letting me know what other shades you recommend me to try?
