Often times, I get so wrapped up in all of the confusion on what makeup company is stealing another makeup company’s ideas that I decided that we are gonna try our best to just stick to the art and the makeup itself. Here are some of the new items that raised our eyebrows in the Ulta store: I can say with confidence that these makeup companies are milking the shimmer craze right now. MAC is on the loose with their new ‘Skinfinish’ liquid-powder highlighter, available in Snowflushed and Oh Darling. With a 4.8 out of 5 stars, I was curious to know exactly what would give a single-pan highlighter such a high rating. Here is what some of the reviewers said about this product: Oh well, isn’t this interesting! While some reviewers are saying that this product is easy to apply and lightweight, other are having difficulties with the application. Also 75% of the reviewers said that
Some of our new plus size additions to the boutique.
Last week, we discussed some of the new products that were available at Ulta stores all over the country. For this one, we won’t cover the ones that have we’ve already chatted about. With Sephora considered to be a ‘high end’ makeup store, they are likely to provide us with more products that are exclusive to Sephora. Let’s see what they have so far: Okay, okay I know what you are saying. ‘Dee, that’s not a new product’. But, my friend, I believe it is worth mentioning, based on its value. While this holiday set does have some of Too Faced’s amazing products, what caught my eye was this exclusive 24-color eyeshadow palette. So, this palette promises a combination of mattes, metallics, shimmers and a highlighter. Bronzers, mascara, the Hangover spray….$357 value for $58. Very nicely priced. Any new Fenty highlighter is always a treat to makeup lovers. This glitter is for the body and I
There is something to be admired about a person who refuses to be deterred or ignore because they are ‘new’ on the scene. Enter Damir Doma. Doma is a Croatian born luxury designer. Although he graduated from fashion school in 2004, he has studied the likes in Munich and Berlin. He has been referenced in recent hip hop songs and is followed closely and work is admired by celebrities such as Rihanna, Kanye West, Lenny Kravitz, and Rosario Dawson. Here are examples of his work:
Ever had someone tell you something or you read something and its frankness left you with the ‘slapped across the face’ or ‘wakeup’ moment? Yeah, that’s what came to mind when I read Note Cosmetics’ slogan. Here it is: Like gurl…..had me shook. SHOOK 😶 . Now that is one heck of a statement to uphold and who is all for low prices is me! I’m looking forward to trying Note Cosmetics and I was curious as to what others feel about the products they have available. While Note Cosmetics is available at Ulta.com, let’s check out a few of their products from their home website: Okay, this company is originally from Instabul, Turkey, providing its consumers with cruelty-free and dermatologist-tested makeup products. Note Cosmetics also says: ALL of our products are: • Enriched with essential oils and vitamins • Paraben free • Environmentally friendly • Dermatologically tested • Cruelty free and never
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.
Yes friend, I decided to get all those gorgeous photos and give them to you in a YouTube video lookbook. Enjoy!!!!
Fashion X – Austin Fashion Week
To be a native of Louisiana and finally experience New Orleans Fashion Week was like a dream come true. Coming into Fashion Week, I was clearly intimated by the location of the venues, sharing rooms with celebrities, models, designers, socialites. Attending as a blogger and not a model put my mindset in a new level of stress to ‘perform’ if you will. Being in the right position, getting the right shot, and so many other things plagued my mind – that is until I got there. Despite it being the last night of New Orleans Fashion Week 2018, the venue was set and my destination was The Monastery. Although I am from Baton Rouge, knowing the location of the venue meant that it would not disappoint. One of the many designer’s collection that captivated me was Clinton Whitney Downing. Clinton is known for his raw eye for fashion as a designer and his forward-thinking as an
