Ulta Beauty Mini Haul

Hey Chics!

It's been awhile since I actually got to have a little retail therapy, so I was VERY happy when I received a $50 Ulta Gift Card for doing a confidential review for some upcoming products that have yet to be released! SHHHHH, it's a Secret....

Although, I am NOT able to tell you guys about that part, I CAN tell you about the lovely products that are in my Ulta Bag!

So this was considered a Mini Haul since ya girl is still on a budget, lol.😂


Honestly I was just picking up any primer and throwing this in my bag, I was pretty shocked at the price when I was at the checkout, since it's NYX, you know. It's usually cheap, but they stepped up their game! I tried it out, and this shit is LEGIT! I used a flat foundation brush to apply it all over my face, and it has a very nice hold.

NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer "Yellow" $4.99

I ran out of concealer; and I saw this one and was like: "Oh, what the hell," and threw it in my bag. Honestly, it appeared thick when I dabbed it on, but seemed pretty transparent once I actually started blending it in. I would recommend building with this particular concealer.

NYX HD Finishing Powder "Banana" $9.99

Okay, so I know you're starting to see a trend here... I'm on a NYX Binge... I ran out of my actual Banana Powder, so I needed a quick fix until I could order some more. This powder isn't half bad! It baked very nicely over the NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer and gave me a really nice matte finish. NYX, you came in clutch with this one!👍🏽

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray $7.99

This is my Go-To product FOREVER.

This brow pencil is a definitely a quick fix in most of my morning beauty routines, or shall I say morning non-beauty routines when I wake up and want to do NOTHING more that just my brows for work because you know.. Eyebrows MUST be on FLEEK.

Ardell Double Up Wispies $5.49

Finally, something NOT NYX!!!!!😂  I am finally going back to my eyelash roots with the Ardell as I do not have and refuse to have a budget for expensive ass lashes that do the EXACT same thing!!! **Rant Over**

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge + Travel Sponge Case $6.99

I actually never realized how much I liked the precision tip until I actually used it with my foundation and concealer. It was LIFE CHANGING. I'm honestly conflicted between this and the original Beauty Blender, and that's saying something.👀

Neutrogena Oil-Free Cleaning Wipes - Pink Grapefruit $7.99

I love wipes, and I love the clean feeling they give me! I normally am a Simple Skincare kind of girl, but I wanted to give my old Neutrogena wipes another go. So far, I'm very happy!

Overall, my total came out to about $71.60, but HOLD UP! Ya girl came in clutch with that 20% OFF Coupon for Ulta, so the price went down to $57.29! Then, I hit em with tha Gift Card, so my total was a WHOPPING $7.29!!! How's that for a discount?

Make sure to check out Ulta, and their awesome discounts they have going on right now! You DO NOT want to miss out!

I hope you enjoyed this list! What's in your Mini Haul!? I'd love to know! Comment BELOW!

Product of the Week! Palmat™ by Practk™

Hey Chics!

I have another product of the week that'll knock your socks off! (well, maybe).

I received this product from Practk's PR, and got to try it out first hand.

It's called Palmat™!

It's a brush cleaning device where you can adjust it to fit your hand for easy handling, OR you can attach it to your sink for easy cleaning as well!! Pretty cool, right?

Let's see it in action!


I really like this product, mainly for the fact that I can adjust it to my palm! I wasn't a huge fan of the sink portion just because I don't think it was designed for my particular sink, so it slid around a little. Other than that, I think it's a handy tool to have for such a cheap price! I mean, $9.99?! You can't beat that!

Check out the Practk™ Palmat™ here.

My Six Product Face

Hey Chics!

We see a lot of beauty gurus with their makeup SLAYED for the gods! But how many products do they use!?


Now, I myself am quite guilty of using 10-15 products on my face to get the perfect look, so I decided to challenge myself by using only 5-6 products for this look. (Believe me. It was NOT easy using only 6 products).

Here are the products I used:

Of course, with only 6 products, the look was going to be very natural, so I had to plop in a bold lip!

First, I used my all time favorite drugstore foundation by Maybelline! It's perfect for my sensitive oily/combination skin, and does not break me out what-so-ever! I added a dab to my damp Beauty Blender (a little really goes a long way) and blended it in all over my face and neck. For full-coverage, I add just a little dab and go over my face again.



Next, I use my Anastasia DIPBROW Pomade in Granite. This is perfect if you want deep brows (or when you run out of your eyebrow pencil)! I try not to use a lot because the color is VERY dark, and can look crazy if done incorrectly. Overall, I really like this product!


On to the contour! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my L.A. Girl Pro Concealers!!!! They give me the best full-coverage, and are complete perfection for highlighting & contouring! The best part though is they are VERY cheap!! I highly recommend these concealers HANDS DOWN. I also use a Beauty Blender and Oval Brush to blend out the concealer!


Now, I go back to my eyes and use the Absolute New York Nano Liner. I got this liner by accident in one of my Amazon packages from a seller who was sending me products for reviewing, and I just fell in love with it! It's actually a great liner substitute for when I run out of my Kat Von D Tattoo Liner!


Next up is Buxom's NEW BIG Tease Plumping Mascara! I was one of the first bloggers to receive this product complimentary, and I didn't even know I had it until my parents (FINALLY) told me that it was mailed to their house! I could have been using this like a month or so ago...😩😩😩  But better late than never! I really love how the first and second coat goes on, but because my lashes are crazy (I have to straighten them by turning the curler upside down then re-curl them), I had to add additional coats, which made it clump a little. Nothing a clean mascara wand can fix! Overall, I really liked how my lashes turned out. 

Lastly, I added the bold lip! Now, at one point, I was not one to wear bright colors on my lips, especially ORANGE!! As time went on and also working at Sephora, I was able to experiment and try new things. Come to find out, I don't look half bad in bright colors!😂😂  This color is called "Orange County" by NYX Cosmetics, and I am in LOVE with this color! I finished the makeup look with a few coats of this liquid lipstick, and I was ready to rock & roll!

The Finished Product




I am very happy with how the final look turned out! I think this will be my Go-To look when I just want to keep it simple. It's not time consuming, and it's a versatile look for work and for going out! This is also a fun way to experiment with lipsticks - Just switch up the color!

What do you think about this look?

Cleaning/Drying Your Makeup Brushes Will Never Be The Same Again...

Hey Chicsters!

Who hates cleaning makeup brushes? -I DO!

I can never fully get all of the makeup out of my brushes with both makeup brush cleaner and dish soap!!!!

And don't even get me started on the drying part...

I would attempt to towel dry my half-ass cleaned makeup brushes; and when they weren't dry enough to my liking, I'd blow dry them (which led to much shedding and burned bristles).

Trust me, when I say that I have tried everything! But obviously not EVERYTHING...

I have been introduced to a company called The Brush Bar that makes two ADORABLE contraptions: The Brush Board & The Brush Bar.

I was amazed by all of the different ways that I could clean and dry my brushes, and I couldn't wait to film my first impression of these beauties!


The Brush Board is the first makeup brush exfoliator with different grooves to thoroughly clean all types of makeup brushes!


The Brush Bar allows you to dry your makeup brushes without damaging or misshaping them! It also doubles as an organization tool!


Gotta have it!?

Everything You Need To Know About Microblading Your Eyebrows

It's all about BROWS!!

There's no question that eyebrows are one of the most important features. We spend countless minute (Even HOURS) trying to make sure our brows are "Fleekalicious" by using Gels, Pencils, and even Tattoos. But now, there's a more natural approach that will not take up hours daily and will not be permanent either...

Ladies and Gents..... Welcome to the world of Microblading!

 Microblading has become a HOT topic in 2017, and this Semi-Permanent Brows trend will surely have an affect on everyday life!

Looking to get this procedure done? Keep reading for the inside scoop on what it's like to get the brows of your dreams with Microblading!

What is Microblading?

Microblading is a process where the Microblading Specialist uses a microblading pen to draw on hair strokes using a special ink. Unlike permanent tattooing, this is a more meticulous procedure in which the individual hair strokes are drawn on one by one.

How Long is the Procedure?

The procedure normally takes around 2 hours to complete since it's very meticulous. There is also a 40 minute follow-up session for any touch-ups they may be needed. This is about a month after eyebrows healing from your first session.

Is Microblading for Me?

 Microblading is for anyone looking to upgrade or adjust their brows in some form or fashion. If you have over plucked or uneven brows, this is the perfect procedure for you! You can completely reconstruct, cover up gaps, define your brows, and even do simple Fill-Ins to get your desired look!

Does Microblading Hurt?

This has to be the most asked question for Microblading! Numbing cream is normally applied before the procedure begins to prevent any discomfort. Some people, like me, felt a slight discomfort, but it's a relatively painless procedure.

K-Beauty GWP for new Subscribers

How Long Will My New Brows Last?

They vary between 2-3 years! Pretty awesome right!? Some may require a touch-up once a year for maintenance, but compared to doing eyebrows every single day, I say that's a PLUS! This procedure is very low maintenance. Once they heal, you can literally do whatever!! #SmudgeFree!!!!


Depending on where you live and the market, the entire process can cost anywhere between $600-800. This is definitely pricey, but can be work it for perfect brows all day, everyday!!









Day before Microblading Procedure!


I hopped on the microblading trend and got mine done because I have fairly uneven eyebrows (it's more noticeable after getting them waxed vs. grown out busy brows). I also had a small slit in one of my eyebrows where hair would not grow for some reason, so it looked weird without filling in. I put all my trust in Makeup Artist (and now Microblading Artist) Vanessa who was kind enough to help me start my microblading journey! Make sure to follow her work on Instagram: @the_real_beautyandtheblush and her website: Beauty and the Blush!! 

My main issue was not being able to get them wet, even in the shower! It was hard for me to isolate them and keep them dry while washing my face. I didn't really experience pain until the third day, in which making facial expressions was quite painful lol. I did experience itching immediately, and it's PURE TORTURE not being able to scratch my eyebrows because not only would that result in excruciating PAIN, but it would mess up the ink. No Thanks.






Day 1

Eyebrows already looking good!


Peeling did not start for me until day 5-7. After that was finished, it was smooth sailing from there! I had my graduation photos and graduation commencement the same week of my healing process (Dumb, I know), so I had to get creative with my make because I could not put makeup on my brows AT ALL. I got smart and used concealer around my brows to give me the look wanted for my photos and ceremony (I was honestly surprised at how well it turned out)!


Day 3

Healing process: No makeup on the eyebrows! Post-Grad Photos

Day 3 Healing Process

Most natural looking brows EVER! #Flawless


College Graduate


Even though this is only my first session, I am happy with the results so far because it has already made my makeup regiment SO. MUCH. EASIER. I know that I will need a few more sessions to get my PERFECT brows, but it the meantime, I'm glad I can wake up to even brows, and not spend damn near 30+ minutes on my brows alone! It's more like 1 minute now (I kid you not)!

Overall, if you are thinking or have been thinking about microblading your eyebrows, I would recommend doing it! To have little-to-no effort when it comes to eyebrows is definitely worth it! 

Would you consider trying Microblading? Let us know your thoughts on the Microblading trend in the comments BELOW!!

Nighttime Skincare Routine

Hey Chicsters!

We all know the importance of washing you face, but o we know what time of day this is MOST important?

According to researchers of California-Irvine, New skin cells grow faster while you sleep, so a good evening facial should be a high priority. At night, recovering your skin from sun, every day pollution, and stress is key. Why not help it out with a nighttime skincare routine?

I'm no skincare expert, but I definitely know what works for me. Having sensitive, oily, combination skin is NOT easy. I've had to have cleaners for my T-Zone specifically and another cleanser for the rest of my face. Same this with moisturizers. I recall at the spa having to ave to types of masks on my face so that one part of my face could hydrate and the other pulled out impurities! Absolutely insane!

After years of going through products, I've come to a happy medium with this routine. I'm sure, eventually, it'll change; but in the meantime, I love it!


What's your nighttime skincare routine?




Anti-Static/Frizz Hair Brush - Review

Hey Chicsters!

As girls (and guys), we've gone through our fair share of hair brushes. They help with detangling, smoothening, and even massaging! But now we have a brush that claims to do what no other has: Anti-Static Hair Brushing!

For all of my hair-sticking-up friends out there, this is like a dream come true because we all know that if your hair acts like someone is constantly rubbing a balloon on it, the only way to SORT OF tame it is by using heat or going to the salon.

Honestly, my hair is so airborne and sticks up straight like a porcupine that heat actually makes it worse! Even New Jersey's best  stylist has a hard time controlling after after pressing it with a flat iron (YIKES)!

Something has got to give. I came across this BMK Anti-Static Hairbrush on Amazon, and had to buy it IMMEDIATELY!

Now the real question is: "Does it really work?"

Here are some Before and After photos of my natural hair and my new custom wig (Without using any hair products):










Honestly, I felt like it did what any other hairbrush would do: Detangle your hair. I do like how lightweight it is even with batteries, and I also love how easy it is to detangle! Other than that, I don't this this is a one stop shop to all of your anti-static/frizz needs. Would it work well with products? Maybe. But I wanted to test this experiment solely by itself.

What are your thoughts on the Anti-Static Hairbrush? Have you/Would you try it? Let us know in the comments below!



Battle of the Sponges: Beauty Blender Vs. Silicone Sponge

Beauty Blender VS Sillisponge

Hey Chicsters!

Remember when the Beauty Blender came out, and it was like a gift from the gods!?!? All we had to do was dampen that baby and pat on our foundation like it was nothing! #FLAWLESS

Well, now our little bundle of joy has a new challenger in town called: "Sillisponge." Word has it that it could be better than the Beauty Blender! ***GASPS*** But not just that. Allure Magazine even dares to call it: "The Beauty Blender 2.0!" ***DOUBLE GASPS*** 

I'm here to give my in depth review to get to the bottom of this Battle of the Sponges!!

I'm not going to lie: When I first set eyes on this thing, I thought it was a BREAST IMPLANT!!😳 I was like: "There's no way I'm putting that on my face lol."

But yes, it is what you think: It's a little silicone sponge that is non-absorbent. (Just from hearing that I'm already sold because cleaning Beauty Blenders can be a B****)!!!!

Sillisponge sent me one of their sponges complimentary in the Gold Edition pack. These sponges come in 1-Pack, 3-Pack, 5-Pack, and 10-Pack options.

(It's so weird calling them sponges because they're not really sponges; but since everybody is calling them sponges, we're just gonna roll with it).💁

They are about the same size as the Beauty Blender when dry.

My first thought was "How the hell do I use this?"

I spent a lot of time looking up the proper way to apply makeup with the Sillisponge, and found many methods. The most common one was to slather it on your face and then blend it in. "WHAT!?!?" It sounded waaay too messy, but I thought I'd give it a try. 

One claim that Sillisponge made was that it takes half the foundation you normally use to apply! I tested that theory! I actually started with my normal amount by accident, and it was all over the place! I literally filled up 3/4ths of my face with that one drop of foundation, which is very impressive! 

The problem is how oily I felt at first. I'm thinking since it's not an actual sponge, the makeup slips and slides everywhere, so it's better to start with too little than too much. I also applied my concealer with it, and it worked just fine. 

The only complaint I really have are the flaps on the edge around the sponge. These flaps tend to mess up my blending mainly under the eyes when I have to get into the creases. I have also found out the hard way that it DOES NOT work well with powder. It's just too messy. I will continue to use my Beauty Blender for powder products.

What I do like is how EASY it is to clean the Sillisponge! This definitely has the Beauty Blender beat in that category. I can just take my makeup wipe, and BAM! Clean. The Beauty Blender takes more time and effort.

Here's the Unboxing/Review+DEMO Video of the Sillisponge!

Final Thoughts

I know there are mixed reviews on these silicon sponges like: "It's to streaky," or "It's too hard to blend in." There are equal complaints for the Beauty Blender like: "It molded," or "They constantly break." I also know a lot of Top YouTubers had a thing or two to say as well about these sponges. Overall, every beauty product will have their imperfections, but it's all about personal preference! My Honest personal experience with this has been a decent one. I like it, and I think it'll be a great addition to my beauty collection as I continue to master the blending technique for the Sillisponge. I will, however, still be using my Beauty Blender in my makeup routines!

If you're interested in trying the Sillisponge out for yourself, you can find it HERE.
