90’s Lipstick Trend for Chocolate Gals
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


I’ve been wanting to rock the whole 90’s lipstick trend (brown and matte brown lips) lately so I thought I would dabble with it when I bought this Deborah lipstick from NARS a few weeks ago. First of all the audacious collection from NARS is EVERYTHING so creamy, smooth and buttery. I love this lipstick!


NARS Deborah

 

Doesn’t look like much but when you put it on…magic. It’s got a bit of warmth to it too, so it’s not like an ashy brown.

Skincare Review | OleHenriksen
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


Baby bottom smooth skin? Check. Reduced pores? Check Check! So as of this month I have been trying out a new skincare system that is known as OleHenriksen.

Most of you guys by now know that I’m somewhat of a skincare freak. And although I try to stay pretty consistent with the products I use I can’t help but be interested in trying whatever is new and trending, especially if it works.

Ole Henriksen

Ole Henriksen is a line of skincare products offered exclusively at sephora and their website olehenriksen.com who offers anti-aging, lifting and brightening skincare solutions for all skin types. I was sent the 3 Little Wonders experience to try out (which I had two of, so I did a 14 day trial) which I actually quite liked.

My philosophy with skincare is it should be simple and practical. Sometimes I find that skincare systems can be too many steps, which discourages people and consumers in following through with them therefore seeing results. Here’s a little bit about the 3 little wonders experience I sampled.

3 Little Wonders Experience includes
Truth Serum Collagen Booster
A vitamin C brightening daily complex for your face. Smooths lines and contains vitamins E, grapefruit and orange extract

Sheer Transformation
Lightweight, oil-free moisturizer. Smoothes lines and nourishes the skin with licorice, vitamin C and vitamin E

Invigorating Night Treatment
Oil-free lightweight gel with alpha-hydroxy acids, algae extracts and vitamins. Minimizes blemishes and brightens the skin

The truth serum is to be used in the morning after you’ve washed your face and is then followed by the sheer transformation At night you use the Invigorating night cream and agan follow that up with the sheer transformation.

After about 8 days of using 3 little wonders system I began to notice my pores shrunk in size! Woo hop! That combined with the brightness of my skin is what will definitely keep me coming back to that truth serum. It is exactly that – the truth! My favorite aspect about the system is the fact that it’s actually practical and not overly complicated; one serum in the morning followed by moisturizer then night treatment followed by moisturizer at night. If a skincare system is too complicated people won’t use it, period! I’m also glad that the products are light weight enough to wear underneath my makeup. 10 extra points just for that.

In short – would I recommend this system? Definitely, you totally get your money’s worth and this has proven to be a system that actually shows results.

 

I was able to also try out the aloe vera deep cleanser, grease relief tonic, and blueberry mask. The blueberry mask is my favorite of all the products because it makes my skin feel super soft and I use it about twice a week. Finally I have a face wash that can remove my makeup without breaking me out! Next on my list of things to try in the future is their POWER peel.

Tom Ford Sahara Haze Eyeshadow Palette
Categories: Makeup Tutorials


Tom Ford is NOT playing with yall with his line of makeup. I have just been schooled. Lord have mercy! Last week I picked up my very first eyeshadow palette from his collection and yes, it was expensive as all hell. But from what I’ve heard other makeup artists and enthusiasts rave about his products I knew it was only a matter of time before I indulged.

I paid a visit to his Beverly Hills boutique because I wanted to see, swatch, touch everything before I made a purchase. ALL his palettes are amazingly pigmented and beautiful, but the Sahara Haze is what caught my attention the most. My favorite part about the palettes are the shimmer shadows, you all know I’m a shimmer freak!

So anywho I loved the palette so much I had to play with it that same night, this is what I came up with.
