Africare 100% Glycerin Review

Africare 100% Glycerin

Let me tell you ’bout my bestfrieeeend! It’s the awesome natural (and vegan) Africare 100% Glycerin. This stuff is literally all you could ever need to hydrate, condition and nourish your body from head to toe. Why? Because pure glycerin is like cutting out the middle man. If you look at the ingredients of any moisturizing product in your home (body and hair) you’ll spot glycerin somewhere high on the list.

MAC Matte Royal Lipstick Review

MAC Matte Royal Lipstick

Now here’s a lipstick you don’t see everyday! MAC is all about setting trends so when I spotted Matte Royal in the new Matte Lip Collection I knew it would be a hit. Sure, most folks are still warming up to blue lipsticks but some of us have been dying to see a blue lipstick from MAC.

Want Long, Thick Hair? Try Jamaican Black Castor Oil!

Jamaican Mango & Lime Jamaican Black Castor Oil

Can you believe that just adding a little Jamaican Black Castor Oil to your routine can completely transform your hair? You should! For centuries, Jamaican Black Castor Oil has been a hair care staple for many reasons. It’s extremely moisturizing, conditions and strengthens the hair and it increases hair growth. It’s pretty much a miracle oil!

I bought the Jamaican Mango & Lime Jamaican Black Castor Oil many months ago and I’ve used it pretty much everyday since. In fact, I’ve already finished this bottle and went back to grab another. My relaxed hair is very thick and very dry so I’m always on the lookout for products that make my life a little easier and this is it. Since I’m always pretty busy and too tired (lazy) to really do anything to my hair I live in a high bun. Which is great for protecting my ends and retaining length but not so much for the edges over time if I’m not careful. However, I apply a little water and a dime sized amount of Jamaican Black Castor Oil to my edges everyday to keep them nice and healthy and prevent them from thinning out.

NYX Apple Crisp Intense Butter Gloss Review

NYX Apple Crisp Intense Butter Gloss

Since we were just talking about red lips I’m gonna keep the discussion going with a new red gloss that’s been growing on me. Now you know I don’t really do red lipstick but I really didn’t do red gloss. When I think of red lips I always think crisp, clean and matte. Red gloss always felt too ‘lax and messy for the effortlessly sexy vibe red lips give off. That is, until I came across the NYX Apple Crisp Intense Butter Gloss.

Maybelline Craving Coral Color Sensational Matte Lipstick Review

Maybelline Craving Coral Color Sensational Matte Lipstick

Summer officially kicks off tomorrow and what better way to celebrate than with a bold coral lip? Like Maybelline’s Craving Coral Color Sensational Matte Lipstick, for instance. This baby was released last fall but somehow it’s managed to get buried in my stash. That is, until I decided to dig it up to get ready for some hot summer days.

Vichy Pureté Thermale 3-in-1 Cleansing Solution Review

Vichy Pureté Thermale 3-in-1 Cleansing Solution Review

Falling asleep with your makeup on is one of the worst things you can you do to your skin. Why? Because makeup clog your pores. So when you pair it with all the dirt and oil your face accumulates on an average day you’re really asking for trouble. That’s why I try my very best to remove my makeup before bed. Even if I’m deathly tired.

I just know my skin will always thank me later. However, there are times I just don’t feel like heading to the bathroom for a drawn out nighttime routine. Especially when I work night shifts. The last thing I want to do after working till midnight is stand on my feet an extra 5 minutes over the sink. But I gotta remove my makeup, right? That’s where micellar waters come in handy. I thought the Simple one was good but the Vichy Pureté Thermale 3-in-1 Cleansing Solution completely blows it out of the water!

Chanel 92 Secrète Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color Review

Chanel 92 Secrète Rouge Allure Luminous Lip Color

Sometimes in life it’s nice to splurge. We love to feel good and go the extra mile to make ourselves feel special sometimes. And it’s nothing wrong with that! These days, I feel like you can get pretty much anything from the drugstore. However, it’s still nice to drop by the department stores to treat myself.

Jordana Matte Dare Modern Matte Lipstick Review

Jordana Matte Dare Modern Matte Lipstick Review

One of the many things I love about makeup is that there’s no rules. You can be as creative and free as you choose to be. That’s why I laugh a little when people take those old school makeup rules to heart. Like not wearing bold lips with smokey eyes, for example. I’m totally the girl that’ll walk into the room with sultry smokey eyes, mile long lashes and bright pink lips.

I’m also the kinda girl that doesn’t like to stick to seasonal colors all the time. Sure, I prefer to rock my bright oranges and corals in the spring and summer. But that’s not gonna stop me from rocking a fierce vampy lip in the summer. Nope! I know most people think fall and winter in a shade like Jordana Matte Dare Modern Matte Lipstick but I’ve been rocking the hell out of  it this spring. It’s one edgy purple!

Shea Moisture Jenny Lip Gloss Review

Shea Moisture Jenny Lip Gloss

You know what I love? Trying new brands. Shea Moisture Cosmetics has been around for quite some time but in the midst of always trying to avoid that damn Target curse I inadvertently avoided the line. Until, of course, I stopped by Target to grab the new Sonia Kashuk brush set and somehow two Shea Moisture lip glosses crept into my basket.
