One of my beauty resolution of the year was to buy more Black-Owned Beauty brands so in today blog post, I will be reviewing Lena Lashes More Matte Than Matte Liquid Lipsticks. I will go through the process of ordering, the formula plus swatches. I first got three of the shades around February (James, Dante and Idris) and got four more during the 5$ sale (Guy, Lucious, Tony and Kevin). 

Face Off Makeup Remover Cloth*

I always thought that micellar water was the best invention of all time because of how easy it was to remove my makeup and didn’t think that the makeup remover cloth really worked. This was until I discovered The FaceOff Cloth.

The FaceOff Cloth is ‘’ a natural, soft, reusable cleansing cloth that removes all face and eye makeup, even mascara, using only warm water. It instantly eliminates dirt, excess of oil and skin impurities leaving the complexion fresh and radiant. “

Black-Owned Beauty & Cosmetics Brands

I find that often cosmetics companies forget that there are more than 10 shades of skin tones. I feel that they don’t understand women of color. How can you have a foundation range with 20 shades of porcelain but 3 for dark skin tones. That is not acceptable.  If small companies can do it, any big ones can do it do. The beauty industry makes billions per year and more than half of it are made by women of colors. Those companies don’t see how much money they are losing.

Irresistible Me Diamond Styling Iron*

 I love straight hair but when I have a weave sewed in (which is always) I never really straighten my hair because I always find that my hair gets too dry and dull whatever hair brand even when I put some heat protecting serum or hair oil. This was until I discovered the Irresistible Me Diamond Styling Iron. If you don’t know, Irresistible Me is a company that sells hair extensions, wigs and styling tools.

This is a very long overdue post. I was supposed to write this since December but completely forgot. Today I decided to give you a look of my collection of Colourpop Ultra Matte lippies and also review them. I own seven plus a backup of Tulle which is my all-time favorite color. 

TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Reverse Wash*


This is the first time ever since I have started this blog, three years ago that I’m talking about haircare. I had to, due to these beautiful new products from TRESEmmé. They created a new haircare products: The Reverse wash. Made exclusively to use for the reverse wash. Where you start by conditioning your hair and then shampooing. Why you asked? To give your hair more volume. If you have naturally thin hair this is for you.

Bioré Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub & Pore Cleanser*

I was happy to be selected by Influenster to try the new Bioré Baking Soda Pore Cleanser and Cleansing Scrub. I knew that you could do a lot of things with baking soda but in skincare, it’s a first for me. So I was very excited to try these two products especially since I have tried products from this brand before and was impressed.

My Concealer Collection

After my foundation collection, as promise here’s the one for concealer. I use to be the biggest concealer junkie but know my addiction has transferred to blushes. I don’t own as much as I used to because nowadays, I always end up using the same items. I have three all-time favorite concealers: NARS Radiant Creamy concealer, Make Up For Ever Full Cover and MAC Prolongwear concealer, that I don’t have in stock but have to get on my next MAC visits.

New bits from the drugstore

I don’t really make drugstores visit except for Wal Mart from time to time. I sometimes venture into the beauty section at the groceries stores but rarely. During a recent visit I went and got some random items.

New in Beauty - High End

I love the month of January only because of all the new makeup releases. So much good things come out during this time of year before Spring and I taught why not gives you a peak of the ones that came up in the last two weeks.

When I learned that Sephora was coming with a new concealer line it was hard for me to wait for so long. I stalked Sephora’s website for days to get my hands on them and with reason. The Sephora Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer are some of the best I have tried. They are inexpensive (14$ US/ 17$ CAD) and provides a full coverage. The texture is powdery but easy to apply on the skin and blend perfectly.
