I have a question!

25 May

Hey all,

I have a question. What do you think I should do in my next beauty video? I can show you the contents of my makeup bag, do the 3 minute makeup challenge, or do a simple makeup tutorial for people who don’t really like to wear makeup. Let me know!

E.L.F. Eyeshadow Pigment Collection Swatches

E.L.F. Eyeshadow Pigment Collection

I got the E.L.F. Eyeshadow Pigment Collection for only $3. At first, I was apprehensive about using it for everyday wear because it is very pigmented and has a lot of glitter. However, it actually came out really nicely. I used the gold on my lid, the maroon in the crease, and little of the black to create a smoky look. Below are my swatches of the three colors. The glitters can be blended out easily. I’m really happy with this investment.

American Apparel Lip Glosses

10 Oct

Lipglosseslipgloss swatches

I recently went to American Apparel and got these two lip glosses for free because of a promotion. The purple color is called African Violet and the red is called Legalize LA. They both look really nice and it will be fun to play with these colors.

Unfortunately, American Apparels employees at more than one location are ***holes. These people were so rude and attitudinal to me and my other friends that I realized why I do not shop at this store. They seem to not like me as a young black female.

Trust me, this did not take 3 minutes!

Since I was going to do my makeup anyway, I decided to record it! Trust me, I know I messed up but it looked nice in the end.

Preview of the ELF Haul

27 Aug

I have to warn you guys that I’ve developed an addiction for buying E.L.F. products but I think I’m finally calming down because I’m waiting for my paycheck.
In the meantime, I’ve started to swatch and test some of my E.L.F. goodies and here is just a small taste of what I’ve done. Lastly, I’m probably going to have to do this haul in installments. It will be my first mini-series!

With Love,

Bath and Body Works HAUL

22 Aug Legs in the Bathtub

Hey Guys,

I am happy to say I’ve finally done my first HAUL video. I’ve been busy over the past week and have not been able to post as much as I like to. I am back on track now and I’m adding videos left and right to prove it. Bath and Body Works makes quite a few nice products and I’ve fallen in love with their creamy body wash.

I hope to do a Haul for ELF soon as well. Enjoy the video 🙂

Please feel free to comment and give me suggestions!
