Are You Oil Cleansing

Are You Oil Cleansing? #BuryMeMondays

Long time no see. Gonna skip over the hows and whys of my absence and jump straight to my question. Are you oil cleansing? “What’s oil cleansing?” you ask. Let me give you a quick and dirty rundown.

Do You Use More Than One Mascara At Once?

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 […]

What's The Best Subscription Box

What’s The Best Subscription Box? #BuryMeMondays

I buy way too much stuff. If you follow me on Instagram it’s obvious. So to curb that I jumped on the subscription box train and sprung for the Play by Sephora one. It’s $10 a month and products are curated based on my PLAY! PROFILE. This month’s box is my first one and so […]

Do Men’s Makeup Opinions Matter? #BuryMeMondays

This post contains affiliate links. First, I’m not talking about Manny Guiterrez, Wayne Goss, Sam Fine, AJ Crimson, James Vincent, Nicky Posley, Renny Vasquez or any other male makeup artists.

This post ¬†contains affiliate links. Now that the holidays are upon us I have an important question to ask you. Do you prefer physical gifts or gift cards?

The Remix: @UltaBeauty or @Sephora? #BuryMeMondays

I’ve asked this question before but there’s been a recent development so I wanted to ask it again. Which do you love more, Ulta or Sephora? 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 […]

Does Bad Press Affect Your Purchasing Choices BuryMeMondays

Does Bad Press Affect Your Purchasing Choices? #BuryMeMondays

It seems like one brand after another is doing something that rubs someone the wrong way. Marc Jacobs went full-on “I don’t see color” when called out for cultural appropriation for dreadlocks in his latest New York Fashion Week runway show but later apologized.

What Lip Color Scares You? #BuryMeMondays

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. Later, I had to push past all the shoulds and oughts […]

How Do You Store Your Makeup BuryMeMondays

How Do You Store Your Makeup? #BuryMeMondays

I want to talk about makeup storage today and ask you how do you store your makeup and keep it organized? This is my vanity. It was birthday a gift and my husband found it on Craigslist. He rigged the lights to hang around the mirror and I really love it. It’s old so one […]

Who Makes The Best Blue Lipstick? #BuryMeMondays

When I began this blog almost 3 years ago there were only a handful of brands that made blue lipstick while everyone else was stuck on pinks and reds. ¬†Blue was unconventional. Fast forward to now and brands from Anastasia Beverly Hills to NYX have some version of blue. So whose is the best? And […]
