Are You Ready For #NoBareLips30 Season Six with @KeikoKaveri?

There’s a lot sh*t-talking when it comes to social media and a lot of it is valid. The ugliness is real and in our faces. There’s also a lot of sh*t-talking when it comes to women not encouraging other women and those opinions seem exaggerated to me. All of this brings me to No Bare Lips 30, created by Keiko Kaveri.

No Bare Lips 30 is a moment where the ugliness of social media and the idea women don’t rock with each other gets turned on its head. From August 28 to September 26 women of color will be serving a myriad of lip colors on Twitter and Instagram under the #nobarelips30 hashtag. Selfies will pop and compliments will fly. It will be glorious. No Bare Lips 30 Season Six August 28 to September 26

5 Beauty Questions That Need Answers #QTNA

Why are the OG Naked palettes still $54?

The original Urban Decay Naked palette came out in 2011 or 2012 and I’m still waiting for it to drop in price. Maybe something is wrong with me but I don’t think it should be the same price as when it came out. The packaging alone doesn’t warrant it costing the same as the other ones. Naked 2, 3, and Smoky come in sturdy cases compared to the felt-covered magnetic case for the original. Continue reading 5 Beauty Questions That Need Answers #QTNA

What’s BHA Anyway?

The BHA in Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Liquid stands for beta hydroxy acid, commonly known as salicylic acid. You might be familiar with salicylic acid because it’s in lots of acne products. Salicylic acid can help clear pores, help with skin texture, and fight blackheads, but its primary benefit is exfoliation.

Do You Use More Than One Mascara At Once? #BuryMeMondays

This post contains affiliate links

After going back and forth between a couple of mascaras I got the bright idea to use them together. My thought was the length I get from one can be combined with the volume I get from the other. My experiment worked so well that my mother-in-law asked what mascara I was using. That’s a score in my book. So do you use multiple mascaras at once? What’s your killer combo? Continue reading Do You Use More Than One Mascara At Once? #BuryMeMondays

Hey! Did You Know I Have A Podcast? It’s Called @SingleSimulcast.

Self-promotion is a weird thing. On the one hand, you have to put yourself out there to be seen. However, it’s so much easier to just sit back pretend what you need will magically appear. One gets results and the other doesn’t. So this is me shouting out my podcast, Single Simulcast(www.singlesimulcast.com). Continue reading Hey! Did You Know I Have A Podcast?

The $2 Drugstore Black Lipstick You Need Right Now

I’m always here for a black lip. I’ve loved it since high school. However, Cover Girl and Maybelline stuck to pinks, reds, mauves, and browns back then so the only black lipstick option was a beauty supply store. But times, as they say, change and now you’re just as likely to spot a black lipstick as you are any other color.
