This powder is absolutely beautiful in person and swatched beautifully too. Chanel generally underwhelms me, but this is a winner.

Erica commented on the post, Do you enjoy applying makeup to others? 1 day, 8 hours ago

I don’t like to do it, but I have a pretty good rep for doing others makeup. I do it only for family and friends in a pinch – getting ready for a party, church, etc. I think friends and family like me to do […]

Ben Nye banana powder – drying and cakey. Never again.

IT cosmetics. With the exception of the brushes, I’ve returned every product I’ve tried. They’re obviously unaware of women of color with medium brown […]

I’m not usually swayed by Nars nail polishes, but I do see a teal polish in the bunch that’s calling my name.

I’m loving Estée Lauder’s Defiant Coral too Christine. It’s so pretty and it’s the first Estée Lauder lippie I’ve bought in years. I also love how the magnetic bullet snaps back together when you close it (lol).

Erica commented on the post, MAC Eyeshadow Swatches: Peach 2 weeks, 5 days ago

I love peach eyeshadow. It’s a nice, subtle wash of color for a “no makeup” or “my lids but better” look for us brown girls. I wish they’d bring back Tete-a-tint too. Fortunately I have some of the dupes like […]
