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

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. There are lots of articles that talk about transitioning from THIS product to something more age appropriate and while that type of thinking has its place, I wonder if it stifles us.
So does your age dictate what you trends you try? Leave a comment below, use the #BuryMeMondays tag on Twitter, or send me a snap.

Now’s the time to lay it all out on the table. When it comes to skincare what’s your sin? Are you skimping on sunscreen? Are you overexfoliating? Are you forgetting to wash off your makeup more than every once in awhile? When it comes to skincare where can you do better? Continue reading What’s Your Skincare Sin? #BuryMeMondays
Color correcting. Color Correction. It’s everywhere, but you may be at loss when it comes to the makeup technique. So I reached out to former MAC Cosmetics artist and all-around dope lady, Mahalia Wells (@MACnMahalia), to give you an overview of color correction and her opinions on the trend. A few times a week she hosts her own beauty centered twitter chat under the hashtag where she provides tips to her followers and conversation around their likes and dislikes when it comes makeup, skincare and the beauty industry in general.

Matte liquid lips. The trend that never ends and Revlon has jumped into the fray with their Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor. Continue reading Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor – HD Love
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.
