Milani Amore Matte Metallic Lip Crème Swatches! 

Milani Amore Metallic Lip Creme in 01 Chromatic Addict, 10 Pretty Problematic, 11 Making Me Matte, 12 Prismatic Touch, 13 Overdramatic, 15 The Ultimate Swatches on Dark Skin

Matte lips can be incredibly sexy and fierce. But I get tired of them. Sometimes the matte look starts to feel a little flat and boring. Summer is all about being fun, bold and taking chances. So why not do the same with your lipstick this season? Scratch those boring mattes and let’s get metallic girl!

Milani recently launched an entire line of Amore Metallic Lip Cremes and they’re way too much fun. I’m talking pure sparkly bliss! I managed to finally come across a fully stocked display at CVS a while ago. Which is a huge deal because these lipsticks sell out lightning fast. Yes, they’re that good and that popular!

Juvia’s Place Nubian 2 Palette Swatches 

Juvia's Place Nubian 2 Palette Swatches on Dark Skin

Can’t get enough of Juvia’s Place? Me either, girl! Juvia’s Place isn’t exactly new to the makeup scene. Juvia’s Place recently exploded on social media making it the hottest brand for palettes on the market. And for good reason! Her palettes are extremely addictive! I first fell in love with the Mini Masquerade Palette and quickly went back for the Saharan Eyeshadow PaletteSaharan Blush Palette and the Nubian 2 Palette. You know it’s good when you double back three times!

Juvia's Place Saharan Eyeshadow Palette Swatches on Dark Skin

Summer is all about bright, bold colors! So it’s no surprise that Juvia’s Place is completely dominating this season with their extremely bold, colorful palettes. Juvia’s Place (an amazing BOMB) specializes in making stunning African-themed palettes designed to pop on chocolate cuties. I first fell in love with the brand when I took a chance on the Mini Masquerade Palette and was completely blown away by the quality. Since then, I’ve added a few more Juvia’s Place palettes to my collection. Including the stunning Saharan Eyeshadow Palette. It’s perfect for summer!

Black Opal Deluxe Finishing Powder Review

If you know me, you know I’ve struggled with pesky fine lines for years. They’re so annoying! I’ve tried pretty much everything under the sun to tackle my fine, dry lines. Countless eye creams. Tons of different moisturizers. Hydrating primers. You name it! Nothing really seemed to keep those pesky fine lines from catching my concealer and foundation all the time. Except the amazing Black Opal Deluxe Finishing Powder. This has to be the absolute best setting powder for dry skin!

Makeup Revolution Drops Kylie-Inspired Lip Kits!

Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit Swatches on Dark Skin

Can’t deal? Then fake it ’til you make it! We’ve all had those moments in life where we had to “fake it” to get through. Fake a smile and good demeanor at work. Fake your brain into thinking you really afford that hot new palette that just dropped. We all fake it! That’s why I wasn’t the least bit surprised when I came across these Kylie Jenner inspired lip kits from Makeup Revolution at Ulta.

Makeup Revolution is known for taking popular high end makeup releases and duping them into cheaper, more affordable versions that’s easily accessible. Some people see it as stealing. Or being a cheap knock off. Makeup Revolution simply believes in providing hard core makeup junkies with the hottest new beauty trends at a price that’s less intimidating to your wallet. You may not like it, but you can’t knock it either!

Juvia's Place Saharan Blush Palette Volume I Swatches on Dark Skin

Juvia’s Place randomly dropped 2 new blush palettes on us last month and the makeup world spontaneously combusted! Okay, it wasn’t that massive of a launch. But it was still a huge deal because now we get matching blushes, highlighter and bronzer to pair with our favorite Juvia’s Place eyeshadow palettes like Masquerade.

Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette Review

Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette Swatches Review on Dark Skin

Social media is seriously changing the world! Sometimes for the worst but most times for the better. Social media has a way of bringing us all together and introducing us to new things and people. It also has a way of bringing about the most peculiar collaborations in the beauty community. Like the new Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette that’s been invading my Instagram feed for over a month now.

Thanks to social media, the world has gotten a taste of Chrissy Teigen’s hilarious, quirky personality to see she’s so much more than a model and singer, John Legend’s wife. Chrissy Teigen has managed to charm the hearts of millions through her Twitter and Instagram account–including Becca. In fact, Becca was so charmed by the beauty that they’ve teamed up with her to create her very own limited edition Glow Face Palette. And the world swoons!

Urban Decay x Jean-Michael Basquiat Collection Swatches 

Urban Decay x Jean-Michael Basquiat Collection Swatches on Dark Skin

Happy Sunday, makeup lovers! Before I jump right in to some Skincare Sunday goodies, I just have to show you the amazing new, limited edition Urban Decay x Jean-Michael Basquiat Makeup As Art Collection. It’s been a long time since I’ve been excited about an Urban Decay collection. The last Urban Decay collection to catch my eye was the Gwen Stefani Collection. Let’s face it. It was pretty and the packaging was cute but it was ultimately a fail for us dark skin divas.

The Jean-Michael Basquiat Collection is something totally different! The Makeup As Art Collection is bold. It’s vibrant. It’s gritty. It’s surreal. It’s edgy. Basically, the Jean-Michael Basquiat Makeup As Art Collection is everything we’ve grown to know and love about Urban Decay before the incessant Naked craze. Don’t get me wrong. I love a good neutral palette and nude lip as much as any makeup junkie. But every now and then, you’ve got to switch things up and add some color, girl!

The Love Light Prismatic Highlighters are everything you’d imagine a Too Faced highlighter to be. Shiny, a little gaudy, maybe a little cheap but still hella cute!
