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.

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

MAC Halsey

I’m late I know but I’ve been busy. Playing in some makeup I’ve purchased and not yet tried. Here is MAC Halsey. No clue where I’d wear it but I’ll put it in the winter stash. I lined it with Vino and blennnnnnded. I think I like it.

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.

Happy New Makeup!

  Hi beauties!

So I heard that what you do in the new year you do throughout the year so I made sure I bought some makeup and stuffs 💁🏽; even if I had to go into Sephora to do it. 

I’m most excited to try this Laura Mercier Brightening Powder to set my under eye concealer; anyone try it? Let’s see how it measures up next to my Ben Nye Banana Powder. And I broke down and used 100 of my points to try the Clinique gloss. Haven’t like any of the point perks in months. 

Happy New Year!

Let me know your thoughts in the comments; do you have any of these, any of them not work for you?

Jeffree Star: Abused

Yes, yes, yes! My conservative self is absolutely in a relationship with this blue lipstick. LOL. It’s so fun. Shout out to my daughter Taylor for gifting me this lippie. 

It’s no secret how much I love the Jeffree Star liquid lipstick formula; stays put for hours and dries to a non-drying beautiful color. In the last photo I compare it to Kat Bon D’s Poe. What do you think?
