So I’ve already reviewed the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation so if you’re looking for my thoughts on that, make sure you check out this post and this post where I swatched more of the darker shades. Today I’m just going over the new deeper shades the brand recently launched in the formula.

Hey folks, what's happening? How's your summer been going? I typically use the summer to lean back and not post as much as I typically do throughout the year—you know, try to use the time to go out and relax as well as get a ton of business-related work done. Coming up I have my beauty event at Space NK this Saturday (woo hoo!) and then next week is my birthday and I'm heading to Miami with my homey Trina from The Baby Shopaholic. I envision a ton of grownup shenanigans going down and I'll have a recap so stay tuned…lol.

OK so if you haven’t tried at least one of the L’Oreal Infallible Lip Paints (they come in a gazillion colors), you might want to scoot on over to your local drugstore and check them out namely if you love opaque and super opaque glosses. I’ve done a review on them and even worked with Walgreens earlier this year to do a video tutorial using them. In my eyes, they’re the business.

TSABD Edit is normally reserved for Tuesdays, but like I’ve mentioned in a few previous Edits, it’s summer so I’ve been leanT back when it comes to content AND I’ve also gotten quite an influx of products in that I didn’t want to wait a week in between to post, so here we are. I’m going to post another one tomorrow so stay tuned…lol.

TSABD Edit: Maybelline Color Sensational Matte Metallics Lipstick on Dark Skin

When you’ve been around the block a few times, you’ll know that most things aren’t “new.” A lot of the beauty trends we’re seeing now came from a few decades ago. One that I didn’t think I’d see come back so hard is metallic lipstick. I can’t think of metallic lipstick and NOT think of mid to late 1980s R&B music videos. Or my mom’s gold metallic lipstick stash. In fact I would wonder why brands like Black Radiance and Black Opal still had gold and copper lipstick in their offerings because it seemed dated, but shoot—they were just ahead of the pack.

TSABD Edit: Black Radiance Creme Contour Palette + Blushing Bronze Palette on Dark Skin

I typically only post ONE TSABD Edit a week on Tuesdays, but I’ve been summer vacaying (or at least trying to—I’ve still been working) and had a bit of a build-up on products that both came in and that I purchased myself, so I figured I might as well churn them out so I don’t have piles of makeup looking at me every time I walk into my office :x
