I Miss Makeup

It's been such a while since I have been on here. Shameful but true. I've been between jobs (layoffs suck) so makeup has been a luxury I haven't been able to indulge into. But no fear, I will be back in all my makeup glory! *evil laughter*. I'm hoping to get into the beauty scene here in North Florida. In time I shall but please STAY TUNED!

BBB (Beauty Budget Buy)- Essence of Beauty Powder Brush vs M.A.C 150


So I recently purchased the Essence of Beauty Powder Blush and I am highly pissed! IT IS almost EXACTLY THE SAME AS M.A.C's 150 face brush...dare I say maybe even better? I washed it before playing with it since I bought mostly because I've been impressed and pleased with all my other EOB purchases but (in my best Kat Williams voice)..."This ish right here? This ish right here?". This brush is definitely not your run of the mill drugstore brush. It is soft, dense, DOES NOT SHED, and picks up color very nicely. As I play with it (pics are shown, I can DEFINITELY say that is is softer then my 150. The shapes are same...were you able to guess which was which? The right is the Essence of Beauty brush and the left is M.A.C.'s 150 face brush. $13.00 vs. $ that really an argument? Knowing what I know now about brushes, I probably wouldn't own any MAC brushes (except the 130..the love of my life). I am a MAC collector though so...there that thought went...straight through the window. Check out both brushes for yourself or let me know your thoughts on each brush below!

LA Splash Cosmetics

I finally got the awesome opportunity to try LA Splash. I became more acquainted with their brand when I used them for a shoot. O...M....G I loved working with those glitters. When I was sent the products, I had intended on using them on my next shoot and using those images as my example but the shoot was rescheduled so I decided to take a chance and use them for myself. I was nervous at first because of my kerataconus but I wore everything I described in the video for 6 hrs around the house WITH NO PROBLEM! I may have had one piece of glitter fall on a lash and that didn't even irritate my eye...the light just made it glare and it bugged me lol. I would still recommend their base though because it really helped the product to adhere to my eye. Beware: blending does become a bit of a chore with this base because it's almost TOO affective. The liner was phenomenal and the lipgloss left the glitter on my lips but it didn't travel. Amazing, right?! When I was ready to wash the face for bed, I used my face wipes and everything came off clean! Nothing svelted (LOL) into my eye or anything. These products are very good and very kind to the sens-i-eye person like myself.. I highly recommend these products but please do be careful because glitters should always be used with caution around the eye area.

FTC: I did not purchase these products. They were sent to be by the product's organization for review. These opinion are my own and was not compensated or influenced in ANY way for this review.

For those who may not know, I have a series on youtube for professional women of color. All those colorful crazy lashed out looks are nice but let's be real, they are not all work appropiate. Most professional environments are fairly conservative and expect your appearance to reflect their culture. That's why I put this series together. I may hopefully get to do more fun looks but I find that I can kill two birds with one stone in doing my makeup for work and recording it. WIN WIN for the both of us. Check out my most recent video and let me know what you think!
