Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink The BEST Matte Lippie Ever!

I received the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink from Influenster for my honest review Longtime followers know that lippies are my makeup weakness. I have a billion and one ton from Colourpop and NYX, but NOTHING has topped the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink. In fact, the shade Lover has truly become my Summer ’17 staple.

Summer No Buy 2017: August Empties

PÜR Cosmetics My Little Pony: The Movie Collection

PÜR Cosmetics My Little Pony The Movie Collection

The My Little Pony Collection was sent for review purposes. All opinions are my own. I grew up in the 90s and LOVED My Little Pony.

It’s a little more than halfway through the summer and I’m sharing July empties for my summer no buy. Being a natural hair and beauty blogger is tough. Even though there are three of us on Type 4 Naturals, having different textures means sending products and reviews for three heads! For much of July, I used items from Jane Carter’s Curls to Go line for reviews and our Instagram take...

Summer No Buy 2017: June Empties

Some products don’t work while others just sit on the shelf. After giving and throwing things away through the year, each summer I do a “no buy” emptying as many products as possible. Not sure how to clear your...

Through this...

Black DOES Crack Sunburn Treatment & Prevention for Dark Skin

It’s Summer ’17! I usually share tips and reviews on destinations all over the world, but nothing in my own backyard. This summer I’m taking a break from traveling to do more in NYC. An issue I see often is going to the beach, water park or vacation in general and not applying sunscreen. I’ll be honest, sunscreen is not something I religiously wore growing up, but as I became...
