Bobbi Brown Golden Nude CC Cream Review

Bobbi Brown Golden Nude CC Cream

Brown skin can be pretty tricky sometimes when it comes to makeup. It comes with all kinds of quirks like unevenness and hyper-pigmentation along with a dull, ashy cast sometimes. That’s why a one size fit all approach isn’t always the best for brown gals–especially when it comes to foundation. Most people aren’t all one color in the face and this holds especially true for WOC. We’re usually a bit darker in the perimeter of our faces and lighter in the center. This contrast can often cause foundation to look a little dull and ashy around the darker areas. And we all know that’s the worse for WOC!

If you follow me on Snapchat, then you’ve probably seen many of my no makeup selfies and noticed that I have a sort of natural contour along with some slight hyper pigmentation around my mouth. Sometimes, the area around my hairline and mouth can start to look dull and ashy because my foundation just doesn’t cut it when it comes to the deeper parts of my face.

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask Review

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask

I know I’m probably going to get stoned for saying this, but at 25, I’m starting to feel old. LOL! It sounds crazy when I say it out loud but boy is it the truth. I’m sleepier than a newborn most of the time and at one point my skin wasn’t starting to look and fee spring chicken fresh anymore. Between heavy makeup, junk food and little rest, my skin was starting to look a little rough. And don’t get me started on all of the sun damage I’m sure I’ve racked up over 25 years of not wearing sunscreen!

After my stint at the Bobbi Brown counter, I’ve learned a heck of a lot about skin and how to take better care of my complexion. Since then, I’ve beefed up my skincare routine by incorporating a serum and stepping my masking game way up. Before, I used to mask just once a week with a slightly drying yet seriously effective clay or mud mask. Now, I mask almost every other day thanks to the genius Peter Thomas Roth. His Cucumber Gel Mask has literally given my skin life!


Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist Review

Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist

Setting sprays aren’t exactly necessary but I love them anyway. I think they’re a great way for many reasons. Some are incredibly refreshing and hydrating which makes makeup application a breeze. Others help mattify and extend the wear of makeup on even the oiliest of skin types. While some leave a killer dewy glow. That’s why I own quite a few of them from MAC to NYX and now Pixi.


GlamGlow The Big Book of Sexy for Holiday 2015

If there was a holiday set I would stand on the corner with a sign that says, “Will work 4 beauty products,” it’s this one. GlamGlow’s mud masks are superb but they’re pricey as hell! Thankfully, you can save yourself a few dollars and have the best skin on the block this holiday season. You know, if you just so happen to have a few hundred dollars burning a hole in your pocket.

The massive set includes:


Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner Review

Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner

I know it can be hard to believe that there’s good skincare products in the drugstore aisles, but trust me, it’s true. Lines like CeraVe, Cetaphil and Neutrogena have really impressed me this year so I’ve been more open to trying other brands like Shea Moisture and now Pixi.

Pixi is mostly known for their affordable makeup line but they also have a small yet mighty collection of Skintreats, all available exclusively at Target. There’s 2 mists and a toner which are all popular but the toner has gained a cult like following worldwide.

Happy November! I hope you guys had a fun Halloween and snagged all the free candy you could get last night. I spent my night relaxing after a very long month. Whew. Glad it’s over! Now I’m looking forward to November and the release of these wonderful holiday collections. I can already hear my wallet crying LOL!

Before I can really start back makeup shopping though I have to give you a quick rundown on all of my favorite products that got me through October. Let’s get started!
