We Are Onyx

Hello lovelies,


I am still rocking my short natural curly hair style....hey boo, hey boo!! Just to update you I have been using the following products from a brand namely: Beautiful Textures.
Now if you aren't aware on the YT beauty world, their is a new beauty box out known as We Are Onyx... They provide you with 4 full size beauty products every month. The subscription cost $25/mth and this beauty box is geared towards us woman of color/ beauty of color. Last month beauty box, that is when I actually joined this subscription; featured Beautiful Textures brand products which is also a new hair care brand geared towards kinky, natural and curly hair beauties. I absolutely love this brand and it does wonders to my hair, using it for the past  3 months since I found the curling pudding in my local Walmart, I have seen that it has grown my hair along with thickening it. I love the thickness and curl pattern from using Beautiful Textures products.
Here is a pic of my March " We are Onyx" beauty box:



Here is my curl pattern 

Used Grocery store Coconut oil, Rosemary Oil, Beautiful Textures Moisture Butter and a finger tip of the Beautiful Textures Curl Pudding.

Will be braiding the hair soon as a protective style, because I am getting tired of this one style... stay tuned!!

Swatch: Coastal Scents Hot Pots

Hello Lovelies,


I hope all is well and I missed the love of blogging, due to my busy work schedule I apologize for not putting out the frequent blog posts. None-the-less I wanted to share swatches of my recent additions to my collection of some great and affordable dupes and color eyeshadows from Coastal Scents. Coastal Scents are a company which offers sale in makeup, makeup tool and beauty care. They always have a sale every week and when they do offer a hot pot (single eyeshadow) sale of $0.99 I always take advantage. Their Hot Pots are great dupes to the infamous Mac eyeshadows, they are great pigmentation and as with any eyeshadow require a great eye base/primer before application.


Here is my mini collection of Coastal Scents Hot Pots along with swatches.

FOTD: Rare Exotic

Hello Lovelies,

Hope all is well with everyone. I am not a fan of pink eyeshadow on me, but lately I have been on a glitter obsession. Every time I go to the drugstore and see glitter, I get really excited and have so many looks in my head of what I want to accomplish with it. I definitely stepped out of my comfort zone for this colored pink makeup look. I really loved how it turned out and will definitely be doing more pinks makeup looks similar to this in the future.
