Product reviews

Hello, my beauties! Time for more product reviews! I am always on the lookout for the perfect red lipstick or gloss. As a woman of color, I find it hard to locate the exact shade that makes me look both sexy and sophisticated. But, thanks to Tia Williams of Shake Your Beauty (, I have found the perfect red lipgloss - Tarte Dual-Sided Lipgloss in Bonnie and Clyde. Oh, my Brown-Skinned Beauties, I am so happy!!!! I'm wearing it today and it looks positively luscious, do you hear me??? LUSCIOUS!!! The Bonnie side is a dark red and the Clyde side is a sheer red with sparkles. I'm wearing them combined, but even individually, they're to-die-for. Get them now! MAC Studio Stick Foundation: I use NW 35. I love it, ladies. It works as both concealer and foundation. I don't use it over my whole face, but I swipe it under my eyes, around my nose, and on any blemishes and pat with my finger to blend. It's a great timesaver and looks really natural. Give it a try. Maybelline Lash Stylist mascara: It's just okay for me (tm Randy Jackson). I like the little comb applicator, but doesn't Rimmel have a comb mascara, too? The whole point of Lash Stylist is that the applicator makes it easier for you to manipulate your lashes into whatever shape you want them, I guess. So, I've been doing a flirty little cat eye look by fanning my lashes out to the sides. But, I've done that with regular mascara wands, so I don't see why this one is any better. If you're happy with the mascara you have, don't feel the need to pick this one up - it doesn't lengthen or thicken more than any other and the comb applicator is just a gimmick, IMO. Until next time, loves! Perfume-scented hugs and lipstick kisses!
