My favorite products by Wet n Wild – and a few not so favorites

It’s almost that time of the month…time to pick out my favorite products of the last couple of weeks. Before I do that, I’m doing another installment of my ‘best of’ series today! In these series I tell you my one-brand favorites. A couple of days ago I showed you my favorite IT Cosmetics products and today it’s all about the brand Wet n Wild! Which products are worth getting and which one(s) are not? Wet n Wild is sold at the drugstore and has a ton of products that are very, very inexpensive. The quality is great though, the...

Quick tip! Jesse’s Girl Liquid Liner (a new favorite)

I’ve discovered a liquid eyeliner that I’m officially calling my ‘all time favorite’ liquid liner! I’ve been wearing liquid liner for years (since high school, I think – mascara, liquid liner and lipgloss), so I kinda consider myself a liquid eyeliner connoisseur. Hah! πŸ˜€ I’m very picky when it comes to them and the fact that this one is now my favorite, says a lot! The best part is that it’s from the drugstore and it’s less than $7. It’s by Jesse’s Girl and this is actually my first time trying anything by this brand. This is how the liner...

I cut my hair! I’m all about that “bob” now :-)

I cut my hair! Yes, again – see my hair ‘before’ here and here. This time I went much shorter. I was going for a simple bob, but the hairstylist I went to at the A Salon Paul Mitchell in San Diego had a better plan. She gave me an A-line bob haircut that is ‘stacked’: meaning there’s layering at the back and long front locks. The back view is basically the focal point of the look: it’s a bob that’s rounded at the back through gradual layering and slightly angled toward the front. I love it! Pictures below. Here...

My favorite products by IT Cosmetics – and a few not so favorites

Happy Tuesday! πŸ™‚ Today’s post is one that I’ve been planning on doing for a long time. This is the first of my ‘best of’ series, in which I tell you my one-brand favorites! Which products of a particular brand are worth getting? And which one(s) are not? Of course I have to start with my favorites from IT Cosmetics, since this brand has been one of my favorite high-end brands for a while now. I love that they consistently keep come out with new products that are really good! I do have to state that, as a blogger, I...

Review: Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation

I’m going to start off this review by saying that I’m normally not a big fan of drugstore foundations. There are a few exceptions, but overall they do not work for my skin type. As you know, I have extremely oily skin (without the right foundation I can mattify my skin the best I can in the morning, but still end up looking like an greaseball an hour later). Also, my skin is very sensitive: I’m acne prone, which means I break out really easily (due to hormones, certain foods etc). I try to stay away from drugstore liquid foundations,...

Review: the Sigma Dry’n Shape Tower – dries & shapes makeup brushes

I’ve been using a new beauty gadget for a few months now and I really want to show it to you, because it’s a good one!

Review: Amuse Bouche Lipsticks by BITE Beauty #theamusebouche

In my March Favorites the other day I mentioned that I’ve been loving the Amuse Bouche lipsticks by Bite Beauty in the past. In fact, they’ve been my favorite lippies in the past couple of months. I have three shades, which were sent to me by Influenster in a VoxBox. I don’t think I would have bought them myself, because you guys know that I have way too many lipsticks! I’m happy that I got to try them though, because these lipsticks feel sooo good on the lips, it’s crazy! Check them out below. Bite Bouche Lipstick in ‘Pepper’ Bite...

Unboxing: my ESSENCE BeautyBox

Back in February I received another ESSENCE BeautyBox that is too good not to share with you! πŸ˜€ The ESSENCE box is a monthly subscription box with 5 makeup, skincare and hair products from big (black-owned) brands. The difference between this box and any other subscription boxes is that this one is targeted at women of color (WOC), which is pretty cool, especially when relating to hair products. In these boxes you will not find any products for ‘naturally straight’ hair, for example, or ‘blonde’ hair, products that I wouldn’t use anyway. The products are selected by the people from...
