Sedona Lace: 4 Color Eyeshadow Palette With Mini EB 13

Image
*** THIS PRODUCT WAS PURCHASED BY ME. I AM NOT AFFLIATED WITH SEDONA LACE***

4 Color Eyeshadow Palette With Mini EB 13 This palete comes with four shadows:1. Copper2. Pink3. Aqua4. CreamThree of the shadows are shimmer, leaving one matte color. This palette is exclusive to Sedona Lace and price point is  $9.95 online. It's not one of the generic palettes from China with a company  name/ logo on the front.The packaging is sturdy and comes with a magnetic strip so the stop will not flop open.  The shadows didn't swatch well on the skin as depicted on the photo.  I used a MAC's paint pot in "painterly" in the top photo, to help the shadows pop! I also used a wet wipe to moisten my brush when using the copper color. It was more vibrant when used slightly wet. I recommend that for the shimmery colors in this palette.  Creamy "highlight" color is  TOO sheer! The Mini EB 13 blending brush is FABULOUS!  I'm a fan of Sedona Lace brushes anyway, so that wasn&…

The Real Deal Vol 1

Hello All!  I'm not really sure who all reads my blog, but it's my goal to put more of my feelings out certain things out there...

I am beauty vlogger and blogger.  I enjoy talking about beauty related topics and products.  I love to try new things!

Please let it be known that I am not here for FREE stuff. As I have indicated in my videos, I purchase most if not ALL my products.  Why do I purchase my products?  If you spend your hard earned money on something your can honestly say "I love it" or "I hate it".

Honestly, it seems as though it would be hard to say anything negative about a product if a company sent you $300.00 worth. Right?  Apparently, this happens all the time for the "popular beauty gurus". And by popular I mean the Youtubers will 50,00 + subscribers. 

Clearly, I haven't hit that level yet.  I have barely hit 5000 subscribers, but I am hopeful. If is my goal to hit 7,000 by the end of 2013. It's also my goal to never to c…

Urban Decay Naked BB Cream

Image
The Urban Decay Naked Skin BB Cream is simply AMAZING!  I love it!  I use it daily as a primer and moisturizer. I NEVER wear it alone, because it doesn't provide enough coverage.

The Beauty Balm isn't oily and doesn't weight down my skin. I am wearing the product in the above picture.  I am also using the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation.

Urban Decay's BB Cream helps me stay matte all day long. Used in conjunction with the Urban Decay All Night Setting Spray!  FORGET IT ABOUT IT!!  No more shine!

***I purchased all the products listed. I am not affiliated with Urban Decay in anyway.***

I am simply a lover of many of their products.

Iman: BB Cream

Image
Have you tried it yet?

Here are my thoughts in a nutshell. I simply use this BB Cream for workouts only. Honestly, I can't wear it alone on my skin because my dark spots show. It was suggested that I set the BB Cream with the Iman powder, but personally I thought that took away from the point of BB Cream.  I always thought Beauty Balms were suppose to be a one stop shop.  You put it on and go.

Now, don't get me wrong, I don't dislike the BB Cream.  It's creamy and is great for a Day on the Beach or for your workout sessions. (My uses only) I wouldn't  put this BB cream underneath a foundation, because I have oily skin... ( doesn't look right).  I tired it underneath Urban Decay's Naked Skin and Revlon's Nearly Naked foundations and I wasn't a fan. I looked EXTRA CAKE FACE!

Iman products are catered towards women of color. Now that doesn't necessarily mean only BLACK WOMEN. Remember there are women of all ethnic backgrounds who have medium to de…

Why I Love: Urban Decay NAKED SKIN FOUNDATION!

Image
Thank you for checking out my blog!  It is my goal to make more entries like this.  So why am I such an Uber FAN of the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation! 

Honestly,  the stuff just works!  For my skin of course.  It doesn't break me out. The foundation is runny, but it's build-able. I love the coverage that I get with my Naked Skin Foundation.

I would also like to mention that I do not feel as though I am wearing Foundation. I have tried several foundations, for example MAC Studio Fix and Revlon Nearly Naked and my skin feels weighed down.  I can actually feel the extra layer. I don't get a clogged , claustrophobic feeling when I'm wearing Urban Decay. 

Once again, these are my observations.  I think it gives a dewy look, but not shiny. 

I'm still matte.  All in all...  It's aways a win for me when I wear my Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation!

See ya!

LOVE IT: Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream!

Image
GREETINGS ALL!

Well, I have been using the Aveeno Night cream for about 3 weeks now.  I must admit I do finally see a change in the texture of the skin. My dark spots have faded slightly, but I know that will take time.  I love the way the cream makes my skin feel.  It's not a tingle... but almost like the cream is tightening my skin.

Like, a face lift in a jar, if you get what I am saying. My skin has new finish to it. Almost glowing at night! I absolutely LOVE IT!

Special thank you to Influenster!
