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!!!

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.

Wet n Wild “Into the Wild” Lipsticks Dupes


Hey Beauties Happy Belated Thanksgiving I hope you all had a wonderful turkey day!!!
Well I wanted to update you on these Wet n Wild limited edition lipsticks from their “Into The Wild” collection, that I found at my local Rite Aid for $1.99 each. I must say after I finally gotten around to lip searching I found that they dupe Mac lipsticks and I was completely bamboozled none of the lipsticks in my NEW opinion look like the permanent lipsticks. So without further ado I will release my opinion of the dupes:
1. ” On The Ave.” = Mac’s “Good Kisser” ( limited edition)
2. “Coffee Buzz” = Mac’s ” Photo”
3. “Vintage Vibe” = Mac’s “Rebel”
4. “NightCap” = I couldn’t think of a dupe but I will say this was NOT a Halloween release this lipstick is actually brown yes brown as I put it on my lips I saw that WnW pulled a Mac on us it looks one color but ends up another!!
5. “PhotoBomb” = Mac’s ” Nightmoth lipliner” so this would be the perfect lip combo
Yes beauties WnW pulled a Mac the colors are definitely different when you put them on. You won’t find these in the permanent lipstick section so if you have too please buy because they are limited edition. #TBB

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
