Filling A Void: Black Radiance(@b_radiance) Soft Focus Finishing Powder

Disclosure: I received this product from Black Radiance. All opinions are my own.

Black Radiance Soft Focus Finishing Powder Makeup For WOC. A lightweight powder that absorbs oil and gives sheer to light coverage. A perfect powder to use during warmer weather or as a setting powder.For the brown girl living in a world where department store brands may not be within reach Black Radiance can be the plug.

Consumers who are ready to spend their money and be loyal to a brand forever. So I think Black Radiance fills that space.

Does Your Age Dictate What Trends You Try

Things that we loved when we were younger don’t always work well for us when we’re older. At the same I think we avoid or let go of certain things because of our perceptions and not how it looks.

5 Reasons I Say F*** Emily’s Feelings From The Devil Wears Prada

Fuck Emily's Feelings

The Devil Wears Prada is one of my absolute favorite movies and this year it’s turning 10. Yes, the movie about the girl with the job a million girls would kill for has been out for a whole decade. So I thought I would break down my 5 reasons Andy(Anne Hathaway) shouldn’t give a damn about not skipping Paris to spare Emily’s feelings.

Cinematically, the moment Andy flings it all away at Place de la Concorde puts on a button on Andy’s growth and blah blah blah.  However, I still don’t like it. Andy should feel bad about Nigel(Stanley Tucci), but she shouldn’t care about Emily and here’s why.
