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. “

Best Foundation Duo for the Hot Days



Hello lovelies,

The weather here has been pretty crazy hot lately. So I don’t have a lot of option regarding makeup. Last summer, I could wear anything I wanted but not this year. So I wanted to give you guys a peak of the foundation duo that has been making me look really good despite the 40 degrees weather.

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.

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.

Foundation Series : NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (Dark Skin)

I have stayed away from NARS Sheer Glow Foundation for the longest time mainly because of the name. In my head glow and oily skin don’t go together. But I was on the hunt for a new foundation because for the first time ever, my skin wasn’t as oily and needed something that wasn’t too mattifying. I wanted the NARS All Day Luminous Foundation that replaced the Sheer Matte but I can’t seem find a good matching color. So I spontaneously decided to get the Sheer Glow and I was not disappointed.

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.

I have been tracking E.l.f blush palette in Dark for months now but it was always sold out on their website. I was glad to find it at Target during my beach trip stateside a few weeks back. This is a good price, for 6$ you get 4 colors.

I went back to Jean Coutu to get a few more goodies from NYX Cosmetics. I spent a good 30 minutes sitting on the floor swatching everything I could as the cosmetician looked at me like I was crazy. Whatsoever, I mostly only got lips products as the complexion items shades are not dark enough for me.
