BH Cosmetics 120 1st Edition

image

I purchased this palette because I heard so much about these palettes. Yes, I absolutely love it. Beautiful super blendable colors with just the right amount of shimmer and a few mattes. This  palette is great. One thing that makes this palette worth the money is a jar of NYX white eyeshadow base. If you skip that you are wasting your money and won’t be satisfied with any of it.

image

Pros:
– Nice pigmentation 
– Looks GREAT with a white base or primer
– Variety of colors, endless looks!
– Lasts forever, doesn’t crease 
– Cheap, but quality isn’t sacrificed 

Cons:
– Some of the colors are very similar/repeated
– The packaging is very cheap, the mirror in mine broke and I occasionally have to put the eyeshadow pans back in because they fall out 

Overall this palette is perfect for beginners or pros

image

Here’s a swatch of a few colors in the palette…as you can these shades are bright without a base, but with a base they are bold and bright.

I followed the  product instructions and must admit, after using for a month I actually felt and saw a big difference in my skin’s clarity and tone. Soft, smooth, and bright skin. My dark circles are starting to diminish and lightening up. Happy with the results I’ve witness since using this awesome kit.

Patti LaBelle’s Sweet Potato Pie

image

Alright, let’s get right to  it. With all the hype that surrounds this pie I had to see for myself what’s about thus pie that got folks crazy. ..singing about it. Came across it while shopping in Wal-Mart…of course my curiosity got the best of me, and I had to try Miss Patti’s pie. The pie has a firm filling with a thick flakey crust.

image

From first look everything seems fine…you can see the firm creamy texture. Remove pie from carton and place on a cookie sheet in the oven for about 10 to 20 minutes until crust is golden brown.

image

It does has the house smelling delicious and delightful. The scent of cinnamon, nutmeg, brownsugar and other spices. After the pie cooled I cut myself a slice…mouth watering for Miss Patti’s sweet potato pie. OMG! I had to politely spit it out in my napkin. This pie is full of spices, overly spiced, not a taste of butter or sugar.  I love my sweet potato pie with butter, brown sugar, vanilla and spices…I want you to taste every ingredient and savor the delicious taste. Couldn’t eat  it. Gave it to my daughter and her friends. To be honest, the only thing I love about this pie is it’s crust.

image

If I had to rate this product from 1 to 100 it would be a 3 only because of the crust. Can’t believe the hype that surrounds this pie…it’s not really all that.  The hype comes because it’s Miss Patti’s. I love sweet potato pie, but this pie doesn’t make the cut for me.

Sheila G’s Delicious Brownie Brittle

image

Who doesn’t like brownies, or  chocolate right, so I had to pick up a few bags…child, let me tell you…these brownie brittle is awesomely delicious and delightful. I couldn’t resist the urge to put the bag down.

Shelia G’s Brittle, tastes just like those crispy brownie edges, with a cookie crunch. Other turn on, they’re ridiculously low in calories, 120 per serving. Nothing like having your brownies without having to wait for them to bake and cool. They come in four equally delicious flavors.
I only got two bags for right now…

image

Honey, I cracked open the Salted Caramel bag,  found myself eating that bag like it was a bag of chips.  You can’t eat just one…they are just that delicious. Brownie Brittle definitely gives the ooey-gooey center of the pan a run for it’s ooey-gooey.      

image

Each variety features light, crisp shards of chocolaty deliciousness — just enough to satisfy any chocolate craving that one may have…without feeling weighed-down, with the richness of brownie .

Mint Chocolate Chip flavor is insanely addictive and tastes great. Nice minty taste that goes well with chocolate. You can enjoy these brownie brittle with ice cream, yogurt, or straight out the bag…however you choose to enjoy them…enjoy till your heart’s content.

Black Radiance True Complexion Contour Palette

image

Always in search of New products I headed off to my nearest Walgreens…yeah I troll the makeup aisles of Walgreens, like I’m the only one (side eye). You find some awesome goodies  (and deals) that you may have never tried…this gives me time to see what brand I’ll be trying that month after that I stock up on my favorites.
Well, hidden in the inner shelves in the front of skincare, I found Black Radiance TrueComplexion Contour Palette. My last encounter with BR was when I bought their foundation and let’s just say, I wasn’t very thrilled or happy with the product. Couldn’t resist the chance to try their contour palette 

image

at first glance I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it cause it seemed so dark for me. The Light to Medium definitely wasn’t the palette for me, so I bit the bullet. Took me about 3 weeks to decide if I wasn’t to use it. SO GLAD THAT I DECIDED TO TRY IT AND NOT THROW IT OUT OR GIVE IT AWAY!  IT’S A MUST HAVE IN YOUR MAKEUP ARSENAL. THE RESULTS ARE WONDERFUL

image

As you can see in my before pic  uneven skin tone, dark circles and freckles. Now, you can see the difference, using my LA Colors Pro Concealer in Toffee alone with the palette and wetnwild are  Stage blush in Brush with Brilliance and Fergie Center Stage Shimmer Palette in Hollywood Boulevard along with Ben Nye Banana powder.

I like to believe that I’m  a woman who keeps herself in the know of different beauty treasures, only to see that I’m just catching up with everyone else.
Michigan’s weather has been very good for the last few months. After the Christmas holiday, weather changed from warm to cold and cold is what Michigan is known for during these winter months…dry harsh cold air is rough on the skin and lips, ladies, you know what I’m talking about.
Since it seems like everyone is talking about it and it’s all the rage…a sistah had to try it out and find out what’s the hype is about. Headed out to Wal-Mart in hot pursuit of the infamous eos lip balm.
On first sight I fell in love with their packaging, a cute shaped sphere.

Now, I have never bought or tried eos in my life…OMG! I must have been living under a rock for some years, how could I’ve slept on this brand.

Coconut Milk has that light delicate sweet coconut scent.

Vanilla Mint has more of a minty scent than it does vanilla. Nonetheless these balms are just what my lips needs to face these harsh, cold winter’s winds. My lips are soft and smooth, hydrated and smells delightfully yummy and delicious.
