Back in January, Maybelline released their new Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color. I was recently sent 7 of the 10 colors in this collection. And because I love you and I want you to be “in the know,” I decided to torture my lips and do some lip swatches. No really lip swatches hurt. Anywhos. View Post
As if we all needed another beauty collection to swoon over?! Estee Lauder introduces their new socially driven collection aimed to attract the Gen Y consumer. Although Estee Lauder’s intent is to gain younger buyers, The Estee Edit is an 82-piece collection I am actually loving! View Post
We basically went all Q4 of 2015 laughing at Winter. We bragged about how much of a punk she was for not showing up (on time) on December 21st. I’m sure of few of you all were sporting shorts and flip-flops on Christmas Day. But guess what she did?
Showed all the way up! Polar vortex is real and I won’t say I hate her (or maybe it’s a him) but it’s been a real struggle this Winter trying to be cute and go outside and be warm.
Imagine if your penny got you more than just candy from the corner stores. Like, can you imagine buying clothes or shoes or even more important COFFEE…for a just penny! Dang, right.
Well, JCPenney is hosting its first week of “Get Your Penney’s Worth” right now! View Post
Hey beauties, it’s your girl Maui!
I know that most of my pretty brown thangs can relate to the struggle of finding the right color makeup. You would think that it’s 1916 instead of 2016 the way these cosmetics companies exclude women of color in their marketing (don’t get me started on that). This lack of diversity is the reason that nearly every one of us has some sort of makeup in our possession that we have absolutely no use for. Purchasing online is easy, but if you’re trying to cop that new new, just know that you’re playing Russian roulette; you might get away and you might get shot down.
In my case, I buy A LOT of lipstick and my issue is that things seem so promising online, or in the magazine, but when she (yeah, I said she… don’t you name your lippies) arrives, ole girl is all the way wrong. Most times, I end up blending colors or just giving them to a friend (let me not lie, I blend… who gives away lipstick).
Since there is no telling when these brands will get the picture and start including more women of color, a little #BlackGirlMagic had to be sprinkled on the situation. And in true strong black woman fashion, Ofunne Amaka saw a void and filled it by creating Cocoa Swatches. View Post
Ahh, vacations! We love them, but we hate to think too much about it. The more we think of the logistics, the less we have fun. I recently traveled to the Caribbean with Princess Cruises and OMG, it took forever to get ready. Then when I returned I was going through serious withdrawals so my bag stay packed until the next month. (Don’t you dare judge me!)
So because I love you, here are 10 lazy but effective travel tips you need to be aware of before your next trip.
