I’ve been using the Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser($6.50) for the last few months and it’s kind of thrown me for a loop. I say that because it feels like my skin has improved since I’ve been using it. Now this isn’t a drastic improvement because I wasn’t battling serious acne to begin with. I had the occasional breakout that seemed to show up around my cycle, but nothing to lose my mind over. However, it seems like even that is under control. Continue reading
Black Radiance is one of those brands that I slept on because I was caught up buying expensive makeup. It happens to the best of us. Now I know there are good products out there for less than 5 bucks and my wallet thanks me for it. Continue reading
I bought these Maybelline eyeshadow quads with the intention to put them on with the sponge applicator. My motivation was to show that even if you’re at the beginning stages of wearing makeup you can pull off something decent. Unfortunately, that just wasn’t the case.
I started off on the wrong foot with this eyeliner. I meant to buy the Onyx Rush, a black, but I ended up coming home with Charcoal Skies, which is grey. Rather than take it back I thought I’d give it a shot anyway.
Maybelline Master Kajal is “a whole new way to smolder: our first liner designed for an easy glide along the inside line.”(maybelline.com)
The cone shape of the Master Kajal was part of the appeal for me. I also liked that it could be put it on the waterline as well. However, after using it I didn’t like it. Continue reading
I feel like I’m turning into a Freeman product junkie. Yesterday I hit up 3 different stores just to find the Charcoal and Black Sugar Polish Mask, the subject of today’s post. A few days ago I finished off my 3rd travel size packet of the product and realized I needed the full size in my house ASAP because I felt such a difference in my skin after using it.

Every once in awhile Sephora has a 500pt perk that makes me say “Yasssssss!” and a few days ago I saw it.
I’ve wanted to try a black french manicure since last year. I’m a nail art novice and I envy all the people who are coordinated and artistic enough to make creative designs and pictures on their nails. It always looks so cool and I’ve been afraid to attempt any nail art on myself beyond an accent nail. However, today I thought I’d give it a shot. Continue reading
Neutrals and wines are a fall staple, but I’m big on blues when it comes to nail color. Blue is one of those colors that feels off the beaten path to me so I tend to gravitate toward it when I’m deciding what to do with my nails. Continue reading
Because I was excited about the Milani Grandissimo Mascara I purchased the Total Lash Cover to try it out.
“It doesn’t get more major than this multi-faceted mascara wand. With three separate “zones” – one for defining, one for volumizing, one for curling – it gives 360-degree, instant impact. And the formula? It’s smear-proof, clump-free and built to last. Available in the Richest, Deepest Black.” – milanicosmetics.com
