I’m trying something new today. My goal is to get more makeup on the blog so you, the reader, can see how it looks. That doesn’t require a bunch of words so let me know what you think of #swatchwednesdays. Tweet me @shantafabulous and I’ll be back next week with another lipstick or blush.
Disclosure: I received this product from Black Radiance. All opinions are my own.
For the brown girl living in a world where department store brands may not be within reach Black Radiance can be the plug. I’ve been in drugstores that stock up to the first dark foundation shade when 2 or 3 follow it. This kind of thing leaves many dark skin consumers out.

You love makeup, but someone in your life doesn’t. They want you to wear less. They want you to buy less. They don’t understand how you could get excited about lipstick, mascara, highlighter. They’re quick to tell you they don’t need it(so and?). Basically, they don’t know how to keep their f*#%ing mouths shut. So what do you do? Do you have a clapback ready or do you just let it roll off your back because they’re pressed enough for the both of you? Let me know in the comments.
When it comes to self-care it’s easy to default to beauty rituals and since this is a beauty blog it’s probably even easier. I want to put something else into the air about this though.
Beauty things kind of lift me up(surprise, surprise), but that’s not everyone. If that’s not you, have you investigated what helps you recharge your battery so you can keep doing what you need/want to do? What settles you? What helps you right the ship if you veer off course a bit?
If it’s a beauty thing, great, but if it’s not don’t feel wrong. What your spirit may be telling you is that getting your hair done is nice, but it’s not enough. So let me know what self-care looks like for you in the comments. Use the #burymemondays hashtag and tag me on Twitter and Instagram (@shantafabulous).
I’m a woman who likes options or at least that’s what I tell myself when I pick up something that may or may not look similar to something I already own. So today I have a few swatches of some vampy lip options for you. One is on the high side while the others are budget friendly so hopefully you won’t feel left out if vampy lips are your lane and you haven’t tried these yet.
