Essie "Knockout Pout"

I've been really into pink nail colors lately, so this week I decided to try out Essie's "Knockout Pout."

Essie's "Knockout Pout"

"Knockout Pout" is a bright flamingo pink creme.

It does dry down to a slight matte finish, but I just add a top coat for shine.  This is 2 coats with a top coat.

Ulta Haul

A new Ulta store just opened up near me, so I bought a few products that I've been wanting to try for a while.  

.............And FINALLY,  there's a store here that sells NYX! lol

Ulta Haul

NYX -retractable eye liner in "black" (this is my favorite new eyeliner for my waterline, the color is very intense).  

NYX  -mega shine lip glosses in "Sponge Cake," LA~LA," and "Dolly Pink"

Prestige- Total Intensity mascara

NYX- blush in "Desert Rose"

Carol's Daughter- Tui moisturizing hair sheen (I've been using this, and it makes my hair REALLY shiny and doesn't weigh it down).  

I didn't do too much damage for my first time, right? lol

Let me know what you think.
Have you tried any of these products?

Get the Look: Erica from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta

Reunion edition...............

Ok, Listen. I KNOW the show is GHETTO, and I know Erica and Francine, Shay looked so ridiculous fighting over 'Lil Scrappy' on the stage...............................    but Erica's makeup was FLAWLESS.

The scarlet/purple/magenta and slightly vampy color scheme worked well for her.

Here's how I would re-create this look.

Cheeks:  I would use this scarlet color from Black Radiance in "Raspberry" in my contour then blend it out with this really pretty purple blush from Makeup Forever in number "9"

Lips:  To get Erica's dark/vampy lip color, I would use this deep magenta/purple lipstick from Sephora's Rouge collection in "R23".  If you want a more purple lip color, Rimmel's Lasting Finish by Kate lipstick in "04" would also work for this look. Regardless of the lip color, I would top it off with a clear gloss to make the look more "wearable."  Here I have Smashbox's "Relection High Shine Lip Gloss."

Eyes:  Erica is wearing a light/pastel purple color on her lids, but I would just keep it simple by using Milani's Liquif'eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil in "Black" in my waterline, and wing it out with Maybelline's Eyestudio Gel Liner in "Blackest Black" on my upper lid.

And I know y'all don't see it for Ms. Hernandez either, but she looked good on the reunion too.... Admit it! lol

Let me know what you think.
Whose look did you like the best on the reunion show?

August Empties!

Here are the products that I used up in the month of August......

August Empties

Simple cleansing facial wipes- Already repurchased. I love these

Gillette Venus tropical disposables- I really like these because  they contain aloe and have a tropical scent.  Will repurchase.

Angel eau de parfum by Thierry Mugler- Already repurchased.  This is easily my favorite perfume of life right now.  I've never gotten more compliments on a perfume.

Bath and Body Works anti-bacterial handsoap in "black raspberry vanilla"

 Bath and Body Works body lotion in "dancing waters"- This scent was discontinued so I won't be able to repurchase for a while.  This lotion is so moisturizing and has the most clean, fresh scent ever. 

Bath and Body Works shower gel in "pink chiffon"- this is one of my favorite scents from B&B. It has a sweet/candy fragrance.

One 'n Only argan oil hydrating mask- Already repurchased. I use this to deep condition and co-wash my hair.

Let me know what you think.
