Grapeseed, olive and coconut oils. I use them in my hair for pre-poo treatment, hot oil treatments, deep conditioning and add them to my leave in treatments. They are impromptu makeup removers, skin and cuticle […]

IMO, it’s really not that serious. I wear what makes me FEEL good, not what fashion or culture dictate I should wear. I think if you coordinate and accessorize your wardrobe, you can incorporate color and/or […]

For once when it comes to makeup, good things come to those who wait (lol). I’m so glad I didn’t succumb to the singles. Now we get a nice sample of 8 shadows. Subra and Giove are very nice.

Erica commented on the post, What has been your go-to brow bone highlighter lately? 1 week, 4 days ago

I’m NC50 and I like warm matte colors. My go to brow highlighters are Mac’s Bamboo, Malt and Butterscotch. For shimmer, I like a light swatch of duochromes like Nars Albatross, Mac’s Vex or Patina.

Cocoa is a weekly favorite that I’ve worn over a year now. It has a subtle shimmer that adds a little pop.

Uninterrupted is one of my favorite Mac eyeshadows.

I am a brown child with golden undertones. I never thought soft hued, mauve-pink e/s would work on my complexion, but they look great. I also tend to ignore my taupe eyeshadows (no particular reason) but when I […]

I’m guilty of sleeping on theBalm too, yet I love their packaging. Mary Lou looks like my kinda girl, but I never take her home because I feel like I have dupes (lol). I’ll take your suggestion and try the “Lous” […]

I love Nars Albatross and I also like Mac’s Mineralized Skinfinish in Perfect Topping. It’s cool toned for my dark skin. I like to pair it with neutral toned or cooler berry toned blushes. It gives a subtle pink […]

I co-sign. I’m NC50 and Albatross is on regular rotation. If I had a dollar for every type of false/bad makeup advice I read/hear re: what women of color should or can’t wear, I could retire early.

Sorry, the dupes are superior this time around. IMHO, Sugarpill’s Love+ is the standard for matte red eyeshadows. It is awesome, especially during holiday season and the summer months. Red Alert is cute, but I […]

American Horror Story or Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. AHS is contemporary makeup while Penny Dreadful would be that Victorian look. I would make it a Goth/Victorian look if I had the chance. Great question MimiT.

Christine, you are phenomenal. The time, effort and commitment you made to get these postings up are mind boggling. I’m surprised you still have lips. I’m not buying anything this time around, but Guillermo is […]

I’m very jealous of Mellan playing in the sunshine since I was digging out of snow Wednesday & Thanksgiving. Cute jersey although it’s not the NY Giants.

Erica commented on the post, Do you wear false eyelashes for day time wear? 3 weeks ago

I never wear them due to time constraints in the morning. I’ve collected lots of natural, wispy pairs and I always vow to wear them during my daily regimen at least 1-2 tines a week, but I never do. No matter […]

Cocoa is one of my regular workday eye pencils. It has a nice subtle shimmer without being glittery and over the top for the workday. I like the Sephora pencils as a cheaper option.

This Vice edition has colors that would make it a great Spring palette. I’m hooked on my MUFE shadows, so I passed on UD palettes this season.
