Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Black Box Set

Black Box Post title

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is a brand you need to get to know if you haven’t already. The brand is cemented as one of my faves because of the variety and pigmentation of their Lip Tars. However, the company has some other products I haven’t tried yet and this led me to pick up their Black Box Set during their 20% off sale a few weeks ago before it disappeared forever.

Luxe Oil Black Friday Shopping

Luxe Oil In Shower Moisturizer

Black Friday I spent a little bit of money. One the places I spent some money is Luxe Oil.

Luxe Oil is the brainchild of entrepreneur and beauty blogger, Krissy Henry. Krissy runs the beauty blogs Addicted To All Things Pretty and Brown Girl Friendly. (Make sure you check both sites out btw) One of my favorite products is the Luxe Oil In-Shower Moisturizer. You can pour the oil onto a lathered up sponge and moisturize your skin as you bathe or use it on damp skin as after shower body oil. Continue reading Luxe Oil Black Friday Shopping

Yay or Nay? 2015 Pantone Color of the Year

The choice for 2015 Pantone Color of the Year dropped a couple of days ago and it’s Marsala, “a naturally robust and earthy wine red.” If you’re big on trends then this is the color to watch out for whether it’s make-up, fashion, or home decoration.

Maybelline Illegal Length Fiber Extensions Mascara

014

This mascara missed the mark to me. It gave me length(Yay!), but the fibers just didn’t do it for me(boo!). They looked like stray pieces of lash attached to my own. I wanted to pick them off because they looked so out of place. This may not be an issue from far away but it threw me when I looked at my lashes up close.

Blow & DGAF from Melt Cosmetics

After months and months of waiting for Melt to restock some of their popular colors I was able to get Blow and DGAF this month. Blow is a pretty matte green and DGAF is dark matte blue. Unfortunately, DGAF is sold out again with no clear restock date. I suggest signing up for the Melt newsletter and pay attention to Melt’s social media accounts for any updates. Now, on to the photos. Continue reading @MeltCosmetics Blow and DGAF Photos + Swatches

Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm

I’m still under the weather but I just wanted to gush about this Black Tea & Blackberry Intense Therapy Lip Balm from Jack Black. It’s not cheap compared to other lip balms, but this one is worth it. One of the ways I know I’m feeling a product is when I’m using it unconsciously. I was reaching for this lip balm like I’ve been using it forever. I think it’s great.

I got nominated for a Liebster Award for a second and third time this week so I’m going to do both. It will be two separate posts because I want to give equal time to both ladies’ questions. I want to thank  Love CompassionateLee and 1reddiva83 at Perpetual Project for the nominations. I really appreciate it. Anyone who wants to do it is free to do so and since I’m doing two you can choose which set of questions you want to answer. Continue reading Liebster Award Part One
