Fenty Beauty: Is it good or not?

     You know, it seems that we tend to touch the topics that seem to be a bit ‘touchy’, if you will. For example, this phonomenon with the Fenty Beauty makeup line. Now, as well all know, the majority of the makeup world is not only in love with Fenty Beauty but also with the pop singer herself, Rihanna. With this in mind, does this not prove to provide some level of bias toward the product itself?      Now, before anyone decides to come for me and my ideas, I would like to say that this is a topic that has been brought up by others in the YouTube community as well as on other blog sites, but only have been touched on. Now what do others have to say about which products? Let’s find out. Here is what some had to say about the Fenty Beauty Makeup Sponge:     I think these are some really good

Exactly how BIG is L’Oréal?

   Gurl, no shade…NO SHADE. With that being said, would it be surprising to realize how big L’Oréal truly is? It was to me.      L’Oréal is a French-based beauty corporation originally founded in 1909 by Eugène Schueller, who was a pharmacist, chemist, and entrepreneur. Schueller’s amazing accomplishment at expanding his business into an empire is impossible to ignore. Here’s a list of companies that are directly associated with the L’Oréal family or there is an invested interest in:  Maybelline Carol’s Daughter NYX Cosmetics Soft-Sheen Carson Essie Colorama Vichy La Roche Posay Dermablend Lancôme Giorgio Armani Urban Decay (yes ma’am) Guy Laroche Garnier Although L’Oréal is known as one of the oldest, largest and most established makeup corporations on the planet, let it serve as inspiration that a small business can grow beyond your wildest dreams. Don’t give up, keep moving and stay mentally positive as best you can, no matter how hard things may be. Obstacles are temporary 😀

Who Are They: DHC Beauty

     For the past couple years, Asian-orginated skincare products have gradually become accepted into the American beauty community….most with help of course. Let me give you a brief example:      Seen these skincare products before? Maybe in your local Ulta store or reviewed by your favorite beauty guru on YouTube? Well, this is a Korean-based company that has been introduced and accepted by Americans all over. Here’s another that I actually did not know was an Asian-based company that has spread and now has locations here in the United States:       DHC is a skincare company from Japan in which the founder, Yoshida, traveled abroad to educate himself and learn ways to fuse olive oils in Spain with herbs from Japan. He also gained additional education on skincare in Europe.      DHC has now expanded to the United States by way of California and has been apart of the mainstream skincare community for some time now.

YouTube – Allure Beauty Box

    For the past 3 or four months, I can honestly say there is a love/hate relationship between myself and the Allure Beauty Box. Like that great-aunt with the terrible garlic breath that you know is going to give you an awesome present for the holidays. Or that hideous relationship that you were absolutely happy ended but you missed the kisses. Its like….urgh! From the first box that I got, there was something in there for me and something in that box that totally made me want to pack it back up, put it in my car and drop it off at one of my friends’ house as a gift. Like what’s the point?      One of the many perks of getting the Allure Beauty Box is that it exposes you to beauty and skincare companies all over the world that you probably never heard of. You also get the chance to try products that have come out in makeup stores

Who are they? H2OPlus (H2O+)

If you are into skincare and have heard companies like Bliss, one the other well-known companies is known as H2OPlus, formally known as simply H2O. This brand is known for being one those skincare companies that takes pride in leading the industry in the products that they provide to their customers. The interesting thing that I’ve found out about H2OPlus over the years is that its mainly has been leading in the skincare industry in its own right off of word of mouth. Yes that’s right, just take a second and think about it…..when have you seen a H2OPlus commercial? Exactly, that proves my point. Originally based out of Chicago, Illinois, this company’s new home is in the thriving city of San Francisco. Unlike other companies that take on the opportunity of capitalizing on success immediately, Ms. Cindy Melk is the not only the owner, but also the founder and CEO of this LLC (way to go small business!). Established
