Trying a Ton of Beauty Supply Store Makeup for the First Time on Camera


Beauty supply store makeup has come a LONG way especially since I was a teen. Nowadays you can find a wide range of shades for darker skin tones AND many beauty supply stores are now equipped with testers making them much easier to shop than some drugstores. I’ve reviewed tons of makeup you can find at the beauty supply store (L.A. Girl, NYX Cosmetics—yep, NYX is sold at a lot of the beauty supply stores near me, etc), but I wanted to try a few things I’d never tried before and had this crazy idea to do it all on camera for the first time…lol. It was—interesting…lol. See for yourself in the video below!


Introducing the Sarah Moon for NARS Holiday 2016 Collection


NARS Cosmetics has been a brand that has always stood by not only diversity, but creating collections that transcend with every type of woman. So it’s no surprise that the brand’s latest collab with world-renown photographer Sarah Moon brings a unique approach to femininity and how we perceive beauty and individuality. Just in time for the holidays, the 25 piece collection is as dreamy as you can imagine. Inspired by the nostalgic futurism of the 1925 film Metropolis, François Nars and Moon joined creative forces to bring alive a line that is short from luxurious. The range of shades and formulas are true to the brand and the packaging looks like a work of art! Judging by the images, the colors are stunning and true to what fall/winter makeup should be – dark plums, rich reds and smoky eyes. Among the 25 pieces there are 10 gift sets – so there’s no excuse for you not to spoil your friends and family as well as yourself! It will be released exclusively on and NARS boutiques on October 15th and on and specialty stores on November 1st. Check out the full collection below.

What I Bought from the Sephora VIB Rouge Sale

I haven’t done a “haul” post in a looooong time (mainly to shield myself from judgment…lol) but I figured it would be cool to do one for my recent Sephora VIB Rouge sale purchases since I often get asked what people should get from these sales. I actually have NO clue what *you* should get because it’s hard to know what you need and don’t need without seeing your beauty stash, but I can tell you what *I* typically get.


Quick Review: NEW Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Liners (Swatches on Dark Skin)

Make Up For Ever recently launched a line of 20 bold, waterproof eyeliners and tapped singer Charli XCX as the product spokesperson. I was in attendance at a press launch for the new Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Liners, got all 20 liners, pow-wowed with a bunch of my blogger and editor friends, and was treated to a short Charli XCX performance. I had to say, it was a good day. /Ice Cube
