Drugstore Makeup & Skincare Haul

walgreens beauty enthusiast

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Walgreens. The opinions and text are all mine.

Besides BOGO (buy one get one) sales, there’s another reason to go ham during your next Walgreens trip: the Beauty Enthusiast Program. Walgreens wants to reward beauty junkies like ourselves by giving us #PrettyPerk reward points, special event invites, and more just by shopping for the products we love at the store.

When you join the Balance® Rewards beauty club, for every $50 you spend on beauty and personal care** items, you get 5000 points which is the equivalent to $5 towards your next purchase. And what’s even cooler is that beauty not only includes things like your favorite mascaras, eyeliners, foundations, and night creams, it also includes things like deodorant, body wash, and even some feminine hygiene products. Can you imagine how many points you can easily rack up with just your basic beauty needs?!?!?

And, as part of Balance® Rewards, these points can be redeemed on almost anything, so you can get more of the things you love—like when it’s that time of the month and you find yourself perusing the snack aisle at Walgreens for instance.

All the Deets on the NEW Benefit Brow Collection

If you follow Benefit on a regular basis you might’ve peeped last week’s Vegas trip that included lots of makeup, bloggers, influencers, editors, and did I mention makeup? During the two-day excursion they decided to give us even more FOMO (fear of missing out) by announcing their new and upcoming 10-piece brow collection. Benefit Gimme Brow which has had a major makeover and is also included in this new launch, is my go-to product. Not only do I reach for it when I’m on a tight schedule, but the small brush really gets in there for a natural look. So since I’ve had a love affair with Benefit Gimmie Brow, I was amped that they were extending their brow collection with awesome additions as well as revamping a few of their staples like Brow Zings and High Brow.

Happy 2016 ladies! Now that the holidays are over, it seemed fitting that I’d start the year off with my current products of interest. With so many new product launches and beauty resolutions I compiled a list of the things that will merge the two together and help me begin 2016 the right way.


A “Natural” Glam Date Night Makeup Look for Dark Skin


So who here has already seen The Perfect Guy, the new romantic thriller starring Sanaa Lathan, Michael Ealy, and Morris Chestnut? If you haven’t (I’m going as soon as I get back to NYC) I highly suggest going out and supporting the movie—it’s super important if you want to see more movies like this that star Black actors. Not to mention how FINE all three stars continue to be and I personally would like to ogle them all WAY more on screen…lol. To celebrate the movie’s release, I’ve teamed up with Black Opal Beauty to create a date night makeup look inspired by the movie :)
