K-Beauty. It’s so huge that what you once had to scour the internet for is now at Sephora, Ulta, and Amazon. So it was only a matter of time before American brands got into the mix with their own K-beauty inspired products. Continue reading e.l.f. Hydrating Bubble Mask Review
I’ve asked this question before but there’s been a recent development so I wanted to ask it again.
Chicago Tribune reports that “a limited portfolio” of NARS Cosmetics is coming to Ulta. There’s no telling which products will be included but this could be a game changer if this is your favorite brand. Continue reading The Remix: @UltaBeauty or @Sephora? #BuryMeMondays
I need you to understand that the sun kinda rises and falls with Francois Nars and Nars Cosmetics. Even if I don’t have it to spend I have to know what’s coming next.
I haven’t had a chance try any yet but I am sweating the Nars Velvet Lip Glide. Continue reading I Need It Now: @narsissist Velvet Lip Glide
Ole Henriksen recently dropped something new to get your skin right this fall, a trio of their Facial Waters. So what’s dope about this? Since Fall is here and Winter is coming(ha ha) cold winds and dry, hot air will be zapping the moisture from your skin so Ole Henriksen Facial Waters can be part of your defense against that.

Today’s question isn’t about what works and what doesn’t. Today’s question is about what you won’t even attempt to test out.
Once upon a time I stuck to dark lipsticks because I thought that’s what a dark skin black woman was supposed to do.

I want to talk about makeup storage today and ask you how do you store your makeup and keep it organized?
