Bold and Bright Summer

Last night I done a video tutorial on this bright and bold, very colorful, and fun makeup look using the Pinky Rose Cosmetics palette named “Bright Lights”. The palette is very pigmented and great for those like myself that love color! I gave an in-depth review on the palette. Please head to my Instagram page and/or YouTube page to check that out. I’m aiming at 250 subbies on youtube, so if you happen to watch the video and you like what you see do me a favor, please? Would you be soo kind to hit the like button and subscribe? It’s free, thank you.

The products I used are as per usual, except for my foundation. I used two. I skipped my usual color correction and aimed at an oldie but goodie, my Mac cosmetics studio fix foundation in NW44, because I wanted full coverage in my trouble areas and I used my foundation I bought from Sally’s beauty supply’s the foundation gave an ok coverage, but the smell smelled like vinegar. I did not get a reaction so that’s good. I also used my Sephora highlighter in “Golden Hour” with the L’Oréal lumi lotion underneath to give a blinding glow. My lips I used all Mac lipsticks and gloss except to outline,I outlined in a wet n wild lipstick pencil. My blush was by black radiance.

I had fun creating this look and I hope you all enjoy the video.


Nicki Minaj x Mac Cosmetics

There is nothing I like more than looking forward to a limited edition collection that I can add to my already grown makeup collection, so when I saw this, I knew I had to share!

Rumor has it that Mac Cosmetics will be collaborating with Rapper Nicki Minaj again to bring us some goodies!! Though Mac neither Nicki has confirmed, sources says the collection is to drop soon!!!

The rumored collection will feature two lipsticks that are nude and we know that lately Nicki has been feeling her nudes or pinky nudes. I do not have anymore information, but as it get closer I will update on THIS blog, so be checking randomly.

Will you be buying if this collaboration is true? I know I will!!

The collection will feature 6 lip glosses one which will be new, 2 lipsticks created by Nicki herself, which will be amplified, and 18 lipsticks which will feature new and re promoted lippies!!

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!!!

Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson



Hello dolls!!
How was everyone Valentine’s Day? I am single so I had a wonderful galentines day complete with a nice dinner and some wonderful gifts. I received the Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson lipstick and lipglass by Mac Cosmetics..I was super surprised it was on my wishlist. Before I get into my first impression, I want to remind you that every purchase of this lipstick or any other Viva Glam lipstick or lipgloss or glass goes to the Mac Aids Fund which helps with medicine, food, clothes etc for men, women,and children affected by the HIV or Aids virus.
Viva glam Taraji is a matte, pinkish red lipstick that compliments every skintone. I am a yellow undertone so it shows up on me as a reddish pink.
My first impression is i like it. I have not worn the lipstick alone, for Valentine’s look i decided to pair them together.
The lip glass is also a pinkish red that compliments every skintone. The lipglass has a sort of glittery undertone to it that makes it fun to wear. I think both would do good on their own but great together.
The lipstick was definitely long lasting i wore it for like 4 to 6 hours. I will definitely do another look for my YouTube video so be on the look out!
Dupes for the lipstick is
💋Wet n Wild “Cherry Picking” which is also matte but slightly darker
💋Revlon Cosmetics “Cherries In The Snow” which is a creme. I don’t know if Revlon still sells this lipstick though. The Wet n Wild one is a permanent among their line. “Cherries In The Snow” is also tad darker
I don’t wear lipglosses as much I am not a fan so i can’t give you any dupes but I would start with the Wet n Wild line first.


Halsey for Mac


She’s here..the Halsey’s lipstick by Mac. I was going to pass but i thought this lipstick might be different from my other gray lipsticks,being that this lipstick has a blue undertone. As you can see from the swatch, the undertone is evident.
I have compared this lipstick to Nyx liquid lipstick “Stone Fox” though they are very much in the same family. They are different. “Stone Fox” is a liquid so it will be more pigmented and also Stone Fox is a warmer gray more of a smokey gray. While Halsey is cool. I love that they are both matte.i cannot wait to do a look and have swatch dupes for you .

Mariah Carey for Mac


Hi beauties!!! I recently gotten a new phone and its so aggie when you have to reload apps and remember passwords lol.
She’s here..Mariah for Mac. Mariah Carey teamed up with Mac Cosmetics to release a limited edition lipstick for Christmas, called “All I Want”, based off her best selling Christmas Album and song. The lipstick is a champagne frost. I swatched it today and it is a frost lol. I went into my Mac container to see if there was a dupe so far nope. It reminds me of a Wet n Wild lipstick, but that lipstick is a rose gold. I will come back with a dupe post when I do find one.
