August Favorites

August was a no-buy month for me but I was lucky to have happy mail from friends and shopped my stash.  Some new, some old that I reunited with and I legit grabbed for these things almost daily (except the red liquid lipstick; I received that toward the end of August but I love this lippie).  Deets below and as always ask any questions in the comments.


HA!  At the very top is my wrap cap; I wrap it around my hair in the morning after I have burned it into submission with my flat iron to keep it neat until I leave out for the day.

Next is my travel knots with striped beads.  Blacks and white striped beads. I heart Nikki and her shop. Shop it here.

Custom stickers of myself!  Duh…I absolutely adore and the creator is one of my best planner friends.  Want your own?  Shop here.

Diptyque‘s Nourishing Lip Balm. Worth every single penny.  It has a pleasant slight rose scent.  Normally I am funny about scents but this one is so faint and pleasing.

A great nude lipstick from Glo Girl Cosmetics in the shade Camel Toe.  I know…the name leaves a lot to be desired but it is what it is.  LOL. It is matte without drying my lips.  Big win.  I picked it up at the Atlanta Beauty Show a few months ago.

Diptyque sent samples with my order of course and I am not normally a floral scents gal, but I love Olène (Wisteria, Narcissus, Jasmine and Honeysuckle.)

The Lip Bar‘s liquid lipstick in Bawse Lady. Another great gift from my girlfriend Njeri. I am a blessed beauty junkie!

Maybelline’s Master Precise Curvy Liquid Liner.  Love, love the curvy applicator tip. CVS.

I walked with this set of fine point gel pens from MAMBI since I received them from my planner friend, Akilah.  They are great. I need another set to hoard. Seen at Hobby Lobby.

If you’ve read this far (thank you for hanging in there) you think this is just a ruler, right?  Wrong.  It’s my ruler.  Every time I borrowed one in the house the owner would remind me that it wasn’t mine (kids!) BUT, now I have my own. It’s the little things. Walmart.

MAC‘s Transparent Finishing Powder.  Game changer for me when setting my underage concealer.  And how pretty is this LE Chris Chang packaging?  Adore.

Lastly…my beautiful, black kodiak traveler’s notebook handmade by Terri Bradley over at Speckled Fawns. It holds my multiple daily notebooks and I just love it.

Day 2: ABH Trust Issues

Anastasia Beverly Hills, Trust Issues, lipstick, beauty

Day 2…I’m rocking Anastasia Beverly Hills in Trust Issues lined with MAC’s Plum lip liner. Hate the name but loving this color on me. This shade works for all seasons. The formula dries to a matte without drying my lips. I must say it is messy coming out the tube–enough for me to notice. Anastasia Beverly Hills, Trust Issues, lipstick, beauty

30 Days of Lips? Let’s See. Day 1.

Happy September! It’s no secret if you have been following me for a while, I love September. It’s my birth month and I am so excited for another year.

I’ve been wanting to do a month of lips and I decided to give it a go…starting today.The Lip Bar, Bawse Lady, lipstick, beauty bloggerDay 1 is a liquid lipstick named Bawse Lady from The Lip Bar. My girlfriend Njeri sent this beautiful red lippie to me. The Lip Bar first launched some years ago so the brand is not new to me and I love the brand. Vegan lippies with cute packaging and fun named shades. The Lip Bar, Bawse Lady, lipstick, beauty bloggerThe rundown. Dries to an ultra matte without drying out my lips. It lasted longer than I wanted it to…LOL…I wiped it off so I can eat.  Grateful to my GF for sending it to me and I would definitely recommend the brand. See you tomorrow…Posh

Review: GlamGlow Youth Mud


GlamGlow, Mud Mask

So, um…yeah I tried it and I am not going to buy the full size.  My skin did not tingle ::no magic:: as it promises and I kept thinking of earth worms (if you have followed me long enough, you know this to be true).  It is like legit mud, y’all; branches and thangs.  It is not a bad cleanser but all the pieces of bark got in my way.  The first time I tried it I was feeling cute and it was new but I can’t be bothered with all this nature on my face.  The mask is okay.

Have you tried?  I need to know your thoughts, please let me know.

Natural Eye Combo: ColourPop

Color Pop, makeup, beauty blogger

This week I have been loving these 2 shades from ColourPop. Their formula took some getting used to (soft and sponge-like) but it works great.  I have been using my fingers to apply; tried a brush but not my preference with this formula to apply. Each shadow cost $5 (you’re welcome). Have you had a chance to try the ColourPop brand yet?  Check them out here: http://coulourpop.com.

Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream Review

😫 ❤️ empty! I’m taking this picture before I cut it open to scrape the rest out until my next one arrives. My very dry skin LOVES this night cream. I promise it whispers a thank you at night. 

*light scent

I’m no Mary Kay fan so don’t  reach out; I ain’t buying her makeup and I don’t want samples.  

New Brush Cleaning Alternative

beauty, beauty blogger, brush cleaning, clean makeup brushes
Hi Beauties! 5 weeks ago I reposted a photo from @luckyjen_jen; she shared with her followers that she was using a liner for paint trays (you read that right) to clean her brushes. Here’s my repost: 

 Neat, hunh? Well, I finally remembered to get one to try when I was at Walmart. I saw one just like she posted but then I saw this one: 

 I love black. $1.87. Mine. I also like this tray better because I can store my dirty brushes (as shown in photo). Easy to store and the textured slope helps gently clean the brushes. I love it. So glad she shared and I’m sharing for anyone who didn’t know. What do you think? xx

My MAC Nude Lipsticks: Swatched

The Posh Blog, beauty blogger
 Hi Beauties! I posted the above pic of today’s lip: Styled in Sepia with Chestnut liner (both MAC) and it led to further inquiries and discussion on Instagram (@theposhblog). Keep scrolling to see more pics of my MAC nude collection with swatches. My top 3 are listed as the top 3: Stone, Styled in Sepia and Fresh Brew. Let me know your thoughts in the comments; do you have any of these, any of them not work for you?

ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Review

  Color: LAX

I just love this color for FALL! This formula is a matte liquid lipstick that dries über matte. When they said ultra matte, they meant that. 

Pros: $6, lasts foreverrrrrrr but needs touching up (like any lippie) and the color goes on evenly, not blotchy.

Cons: hard to remove and drying but not overly so (a good lip moisturizer before helped a lot the second time I wore it).

Overall: I’d buy the whole lot of them! I’ve gifted them this year. The company has great customer service, too.
