Anastasia Beverly Hills Tan to Deep Contour Kit Review

Anastasia Contour Kit Tan to Deep

For some people, highlighting and contouring is only reserved for special occasions and nights out. But me? I live for it everyday! Well not everyday. Some days, time just doesn’t allow me to achieve a full on beat with a poppin’ highlight and contour in stow. Especially those early morning work days. There’s nothing worse than trying to super buff and blend cream contour in under 30 minutes without looking crazy in natural light or fracturing your arm.


Foundations for Dark Skin

It’s no secret I love makeup and all things beauty. It’s just who I am! But the biggest reason behind Fancieland was to be a reference for women who looked like me. There are millions of beauty bloggers all over the world but there are so little who really understand the needs of women of color. Especially those of us with a little bit more pigment. It’s like we get overlooked in the beauty world. Not anymore! When I first started wearing makeup I struggled picking out foundations so I hope my foundation collection will help ladies like me find that perfect shade.


Best of 2013: Face


It’s so hard to believe that it’s New Year’s Eve already! This year has been an amazing one for Fancieland but I’m glad to see it go. I’m ready for new beginnings! I have so much in store for you guys in 2014 that I’m already giddy with excitement! But before I jump into all the new year goodness I want to celebrate 2013 one last time with a round up of faves. Enjoy!


Finally! I've Hit Pan!

I know some of you are confused wondering, “What the heck is hitting pan?” So let me clear that up! Whenever you finish a product it’s called hitting pan (or jar, tube, etc) in the blogging world. Once I started building a large stash I notice hitting pan would take more work. I’m always buying shiny, new products so I often forget about my old favorites. But I’ve actually been using up some of my stash!

Fancie's Faves

I’ve fallen in love with so many different products so many times but this time it just feels different. Like this is it! Lol I’m kidding. I can never commit when it comes to makeup! But these beauties have definitely put a spell on me that won’t be wearing off anytime soon. Check it out!

Chanel Les Beiges Keeps It Soft & Sheer


Usually we expect makeup to be super pigmented with one swipe but sometimes it’s good to have a soft, sheer finish! Chanel takes note of this with their new Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour powder. Designed to “enhance, bronze and beyond,” Les Beiges protects the skin with SPF 15 while allowing you to create a custom glow for any occasion. Because the formula is so lightweight and sheer it can be used alone or over foundation.
