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!

Too Faced Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette Swatches 

Too Faced Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette Swatches on Dark Skin

Happy hump day beauty lovers! It’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve last checked in with you guys and that’s way too long! I have quite the long (and interesting!) story about the massive changes in my life these days that I’ll be sharing with you very soon. In the meantime, I’ve got a lot of catching up to do with swatches and reviews! Starting with lots and lots of lipstick and eyeshadow. 🙈

Last month, Too Faced released the Natural Love Collection for Summer 2017 and it was just as girly, frilly and cheesy as I thought it’d be. And I’m loving it all! Sorry guys! I’m a huge girly girl so I can’t help but be mildly obsessed with Too Faced as they’re the reigning beauty queens of all things girly. Including the new limited edition blockbuster Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette that’s been turning heads lately.

Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Eye & Cheek Palette Review

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself Eye and Cheek Palette Review Swatches on Dark Skin

Girls love glitter! Don’t ask me why. We just do. We know it’s annoying. We know it’s craft herpes and never goes away once you get it. But we still love it! I’m pretty sure if you were to cut me right now (please don’t!) I’d bleed out an insane amount of glitter. Especially after playing with the new limited edition Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Eye & Cheek Palette! If I had one of those unicorn heads on a stick, I’d be prancing and galloping around in excitement because the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Eye & Cheek Palette is truly magical.

Be a Unicorn with the Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Collection!

Tarte Make Believe In Yourself Collection Swatches on Dark Skin

Why be basic when you can be a unicorn? The world is going unicorn crazy right now and I’m all for it! Unicorns are magical and majestic. Everything life should be, in my opinion. If I could, I would go around sprinkling glitter and confetti in a unicorn headband, fairy wings and a scepter. Currently, my schedule doesn’t permit such behavior so I’m living out my dreams vicariously through the new limited edition Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Collection. It’s filled with sparkly, glittery unicorn magic that’ll leave you feeling like a glowing mythical creature.

Is the LORAC I Love Brunch Collection Brown Girl Friendly? 

LORAC I Love Brunch Collection for Spring 2017 Swatches on Dark Skin

Pastels have always reminded me of Easter. Which is when I intended to post this. Whoops! I’ve been a little under the weather lately but I’m bouncing back. Full force, baby! Anywho! It’s just something about pastel colors that intrigues me and makes me feel like a little girl all over again in my big frilly pale pink and cream dresses with the huge ruffle trim sock on Easter Sunday. Oh how I hated those socks sometimes, but those were the days!

When I first saw the LORAC I Love Brunch Collection, I felt little flutters in my heart and stomach because it took me right back to those days all over again. I could just taste the Easter candies as I cracked open the metallic white boxes filled with pastel eyeshadows, lipstick, glosses and more. Such a yummy, sweet treat!

My Favorite MAC Highlighters 

MAC My Mimi Extra Dimension Skinfinish, Double Definition Extra Dimension Skinfinish, Shape the Future Extra Dimension Skinfinish, Whisper of Gilt Extra Dimension Skinfinish, Magnetic Appeal Extra Dimension Skinfinish

I may not be a die hard MAC girl anymore but MAC will always hold a special place in my heart! That’s why I’m back with a double attack of MAC this Monday. I’ve already got you set with the coral lips for spring so let’s move on to some of the most popping highlighters MAC has ever released. Shall we?

Over the years, I’ve grown a serious addiction to MAC highlighters. The Extra Dimension Skinfinish ones to be exact. MAC describes their Extra Dimension Skinfinish formula as:

A liquid-powder highlighter that gives a luminous, well-defined finish.”

Beauty Hack: Blush & Bronzer on the Eyes

MAC Taraji Glow Mineralize Skinfinish and Makeup Revolution Rock on World Vivid Baked Bronzer Swatches on Dark Skin

Have you ever woke up for work one morning just too tired to deal? You want to get out of bed but you’re too tired to move. Then you finally get up, hit the bathroom and then stare at the makeup you’re still too tired to use. I get it girl! I’ve been there, done that. Hell, I’ve done it so much that I’ve started looking for little ways to cut time from my morning routine so I could sleep in just a little while longer and do my makeup a little bit faster.

My latest morning beauty hack is simple but mind-blowing because I can’t believe I haven’t thought about it before. Instead of using eyeshadow in the morning, try using a little of your blush and bronzer on the eyes for a quick, natural look that requires almost no effort. On a normal day, I typically skip the eyeshadow because it takes up too much time blending 2-4 colors together for a seamless look. But one day I decided to rock the blush and bronzer I picked out for the day on my eyes and magic was made in less than 10 minutes. I rejoiced!
