Viva Glam Taraji 2

Disclaimer: I do not own the photos
My heart skipped a beat today when I read that my favorite actress has collaborated with Mac Cosmetics to bring a part two to us and expand the Viva Glam family.
If you are not familiar with Mac Cosmetics Viva Glam line, it's a charity line dedicated to help bring shelter, food, clothing,and medicine to men, women, and children affected with the H.I.V and/or Aids virus. 100% of the proceeds goes to the Mac AIDS fund.
The collection will feature a sexy copper lipstick and a beautiful goldish bronze lip glass perfect for medium to deep skin tones.
The lipstick and lip glass will hit stores in the U.S September 7th!!! Will you be adding them to your collection??
Ps. Keep in mind like all Viva Glam lipsticks and lip glasses they are limited edition, When Mac partners to bring a new Viva Glam lipstick and lip glass the older ones become discontinued so if you loved Taraji's first Viva Glam collaboration stick up before it's gone forever!!!

Pat McGrath Loves Us

DDisclaimer: these are not my photos
If you are a Makeup Artist, aspiring makeup artist, or just a plain makeup junkie, then the name Pat McGrath is etched in your brain!!! She is a legend among the beauty world with her killer makeup skills to her avant garden makeup looks on the runway.
She decided to shake up the beauty world by adding cosmetic owner to her very long list of credentials by releasing "Pat McGrath Beauty" all of her lipsticks, liners,and what not has always been limited edition and if you were late to order, well, you missed out.
Recently, Ms. McGrath has decided that she loves her fans and budding artists so much that she decided to make her 61 piece collection PERMANENT!!! You read right, if you love Pat's brand (who doesn't duh!!) then you will be able to forever enjoy it. FYI: this collection is for those whom love couture/ high end makeup, not those whom choose to stay in a budget. The prices start at $25-$125 and will feature three shadows palettes, eyeliners, and lipsticks along with lip liners. The collection will be available at midnight September 16 on pathmcgrath.com and exclusively to Sephora on October 6. Will you be buying anything from this unlimited edition collection? If so what?

Black Girl Magic with Black Radiance

Disclaimer: Photos are not mine
Fall must the season for jewel tones! Cosmetic lines are debuting jewel tones to welcome in everyone's favorite season.
Black Radiance Cosmetics has decided to join in on the fun by debuting four limited edition jewel tones liquid lipsticks, expanding their "Perfect Tone" matte lip creme line (in my opinion is the BEST drugstore liquid lipsticks besides NYX cosmetics now).
The liquid lipsticks again are limited edition and is out now. They are definitely perfect for dark to deep dark skintones. Their lip cremes are very pigmented and long lasting. The only con I have with them is that they can be very drying on the lip so I do suggest moisturizing your lips. The lip cremes are stay proof. My favorite colors are "Matte Bright" and the purple one! They just make your lips pop!
I can not wait to try these on myself and on my clients!!! Which ones are you getting? Are you getting the entire collection? What do you think about the Black Radiance lip cremes? Leave your thoughts in the comment section below.

Muva Fuka x Reebok

Reebok has been a classic staple to anyone that was a teenager and loved hip hop. If you are like me being a teenager in the '90s then your back to school outfit consisted of a pair of "Rees" as we called them here in Louisiana. Reebok has been known to collab with many influencers in style to hip hop from Melanie Ehsani to Kendrick Lamar, so this collab is by far going to take the fall 2017 season by a storm.
If you are on Instagram, this morning you saw pictures of these kicks circulating around on pages such as Baller Alert no if you follow Amber Rose then you got a tease late Saturday night.
That's right! Amber Rose posted pictures of her collaboration with Reebok! The high top sneakers are the perfect fall color burgundy and pony hair. They have gold with diamond metal tips on the laces. The words "Muva Fucka" on the laces in gold and diamonds as well. The date hasn't been set yet, but I'm dying to find out when! If you follow me on Instagram at "Thestylegosssip" I will upload another picture with the date!!! Are you feeling the Reebok and Amber Rose collab? Let me know in the comments below

Wet n Wild Fall Collection: Midnight Mermaid

Browsing on YouTube, I saw a popular Influencer doing a makeup tutorial and review on Wet n Wild's fall collection..wait..what..a fall collection?? I haven't even gotten my hands on the summer collection, since that collection did not make it to any of my local retailers, I had given up. So when I saw this collection on Wet n Wild's Instagram page, which I got the pictures from (sorry I haven't made it to the beauty guru or influencer status yet..not giving up hope yet though). I had to come on and share my thoughts.
It seems like the beauty world is like the rest of the world ready for fall, the burnt oranges, the jewel tones, and the olives is just calling our names as well as pumpkin spice everything!!! So it's no surprise to see the beauty industry debuting fall collections.
Wet n Wild has been added to the list. Their fall collection, which is limited edition, and is called "Midnight Mermaid" is screaming jewel tones and metallics metallic!!, perfect for the dark, mysterious mermaid in all of us! The collection seems to be purely jewel tones which is perfect for medium to deep dark skintones. Metallic lipsticks seems to be the rage and Wet n Wild seems to be paying attention. They debuted a few metallic liquid lipsticks of their own in the past, which I was hoping would become a part of their permanent line, but you never know.
The line will have three eyeliners, four liquid metallic lipsticks, four liquid shadows, and a beautiful jewel toned highlighter!!!
The line will debut at Beauty Con L.A. August 12&13, Ulta.com august 13th, wetnwild.com August 14th, and in stores September 1st!!! What are you getting? Let me know in the comments below. I want the lipsticks and of course the highlighter!

Balmain x L’Oréal

It seems like "drugstore" Makeup lines are definitely refusing to stand in the background, after all when a girl wanted to wear makeup, she flocked to her local Walmart, Target, Walgreens, CVS, etc right??? In recent years, brands such a Mac, Lancôme, Fashion Fair, Ester Lauder, became the "rage" among the younger makeup junkies, pushing drugstore makeup brands to the back burner, all that has been changing in recent years, Drugstore makeup brands have been stepping up their game and reformulating and repackaging causing just about every makeup artist no junkie cleaning off the shelves.
One brand that has been coming for the top spot is L'Oréal Paris. They caused a stir with their new mascara that is rivaling high end brand Too Faced "Better Than Sex" mascara packaging no all to now a collaboration with Balmain???!
Yes, the French Makeup brand is collaborating with the French Fashion brand to bring us 12 sassy, fashionable, bold, couture lipsticks!!! Now if you follow Balmain on their instagram and other handles as well as L'Oréal then you have seen a few sneak promo pictures, if not I have the pictures above. The pictures are not mine personally they were taken from Balmain's instagram page.
I am super excited, the collection is to drop September 17, 2017, so far not to much information has been out except there will be 12 lipsticks total. Balmain's creative director Oliver R. will most likely no, definitely have this line very couturish, the Balmain line is the most sought after line, did you see the frenzy it caused with the collaboration with H&M???
I am excited about the olive lipstick and of course the rose gold, simply because it's my favorite color!! The bluish purple will be a great addition to me because if you follow me then you know this girl love colors bold, bright on top of that!!! From the looks of it the lipstick is a dupe to Mac's "Royal Matte" I won't know for sure until I see more model makeup promo pictures.
Is anyone else excited? What are you getting? Comment and let me know!!

Wet n Wild New Fall Lipsticks


Hi Beauties I found some new matte lipsticks by Wet n Wild. I am guessing these are limited edition from their “Into the Wild” collection. They were priced at $1.99 per lippie. I am guessing I bought all five colors. Two happens to be dupes. Correction: there were six I passed on the red lipstick which I most likely will go get.
First up is the color “Vintage Vibe” which is a dark plum color it will remind you of the permanent color “Cherry Bomb”. Next is “Photo Bomb” at first glance you would think you are buying another “Vintage Vibe” but when you swipe it you will see they are different,but from the same color family. ” Photo” is a dark brownish plum. Next up is ” On the Ave” which is the only pink in the collection. It is the dupes for either Mac Cosmetics ” Good Kisser” or the lippie from the RiRi collection both were limited edition so if you can find this lippie please stock up.
Next is ” Coffee Buzz” which is vampy brown, it kind of reminded me “Rum Raisin” or their other lippie with raisin in it.
Lastly we have ” Night Cap” which is a repromote from their Halloween collection last year. It is a vampy color that can be duped with ” Vamp it up” they are similar but not alike.
So if you are in Rite Aid waiting on those Black Friday sales pick up those limited edition lippies and add them to your collection at $1.99 each you won’t be disappointed. #TBB
