BLK OPAL Foundation Sticks

BLK Opal foundations are really nice. I use these alot because they are full coverage and affordable! I purchased these from Walmart for $9.97 each (worth every cent!).

I have them in the shades “Carob” “Champagne Beige”, and “Truly Topaz”.

There are 16 shades of the BLK Opal foundation sticks to choose from.

“Truly Topaz” is my true foundation shade, I use “Carob” as my contour shade and “Champagne Beige” has my highlight shade. I really love the look and the finish of this combination.

These sticks are so creamy and blendable. I use my Sigma Flat Top Kabuki brush to blend the foundations.

For the price, these sticks are amazing! These are great for both beginners and advanced makeup wearers.

This foundations are said to blur pore appearance, conceal imperfections and achieve natural looking skin with this creme stick foundation. Perfect for highlighting, contouring, touch-ups and seamless full coverage applications, this best- selling formula delivers moisturized, even-toned flawless complexion.

BLK Opal “Champagne Beige”

Though I will advise using a really great setting powder and setting spray to set the foundation.

I can successfully wear this foundation,with my super oily skin, for just about 12 hours before I can feel and visibly see my foundation begin to move and separate. I do have to tell you that no matter what I use to set my face with after having using my BLK Opal, I still have a shine.

Nonetheless, I have really been enjoying the coverage and the ease of application being that this foundation is in stick form.

I highly recommend that you try BLK Opal foundation sticks if you are in the market for a good foundation stick. And too, these are great MUA kit “Must Haves” because they are easy to travel with and easy to use.

Urban Decay Naked Cherry Collection

Hey Loves! I have the Urban Decay Naked Cherry Collection. I am enjoying this collection thoroughly! This collection is definitly up my alley! I mean, I feel like it was curated just for me! The entire collection is perfectly cohessive, everything works well together. It really gives me all the feels!! Seriously.

Though the Naked Cherry palette and the Vice Lipstick in “Cherry” are my two favorite items from the collection. These would be the two items that I would recommend you buy if you decide against buying the entire collection.

This collection is currently in stores and available for ordering the Urban Decay Official website. Grab it before its gone, because Im not sure if this collection will be around long (not a permanent product line).

Shayla x Colourpop Perception Palette & C’mon Sis Lipstick

Recently Ive said that I would not buy another darn eyeshadow palette! I have so many palettes and I can admit that they all almost look the same! Yep, I said it! But when I saw the MakeupShayla and Colourpop collaboration, it was a no brainer! I knew it had to have it for a few reasons! 1, I wanted to see Shayla win and 2, the palette had all of my favorite colors in one palette!! It’s perfection! 

I honestly didnt expect these shadows to be soooo smooth and soft! They feel and perform like luxury shadows, such a pleasant surprise! Especially for the price point. This palette is only $23!

There are three lipsticks in the collaboration collection, I only purchased one. I purchased “C’mon Sis”, this lipstick was the right choice for me, as I love pinky nudes.

This is the look I created today using the palette and the lipstick! Nice wearable everyday look. Save $5 on your Order from Colourpop! https://www.talkable.com/x/JNCXWZ

Cut Crease Stamper!! Cut Crease in Seconds!!

Finally got my hands on the cutcrease stamping tool. I ordered it from Amazon.  https://amzn.to/2Lj3QB0

Its totally made of silicon for easy use and easy clean up! Using the tool is very easy, all you do is coat the tool with a full coverage concealer, position it on your eyelid, then press it firmly to your lid to ensure that the concealer transfers to your lid. I used LA Girl Pro Conceal concealer as my cutcrease base.

Once the concealer is on the lid, gently blend the edges… then apply lid color of your choice. Here is the result of my first time using this stamper.

Great for beginners who are not yet comfortable at creating a cutcrease using only brushes. Also good for client use as well, makes for a speedy application process and it still looks very skilled and neat!

Very easy to clean, just wipe it off with a makeup remover wipe or a form of wet wipe!

Covergirl 2018 Spring Collection

Im so excited to share this new products with you! Im so proud to be among the firsts to receive these new products. But let me start by saying that Covergirl is one of my favorite drugstore brands. Covergirl was the brand of my very first foundation, it was their Clean foundation in the color “Tawny”. I picked that color be thats the color that Tyra Banks would wear on the commercials and in Teen magazine!

This package was packed with all the new 2018 product launches. These liquid lipsticks are AMAZING! The coverage is very nice and they are super long lasting! They each retail for $6.99.

The Katy Kat Lipgloss packages are so cute!! Not to mention that the gloss is really nice! Drugstore makeup has really come along way!! These lipglosses are very comparable to highend department store glosses!!

“Back Talk” Eye & Face Palette – Urban Decay Cosmetics

So! Here’s whats new with Urban Decay Cosmetics! “BackTalk“!! 

Has there ever been a better or more important time to give some serious clapback? Show your unstoppable femme power with Backtalk Palette, a go-anywhere, do-anything kit inspired by Backtalk, our No. 1 selling, cult-favorite Vice Lipstick shade.

Like two palettes in one, this travel-ready case holds eight nude-mauve, soft berry and muted rose Eyeshadow shades on one side and four coordinating shades of blush and highlighter on the other. Forget about being a lady and give ’em what they deserve.

This trend has never been hotter, and these shades are universally flattering on all skin tones. Feeling pretty in pink? Add 3 Sheets, a satin pinky peach shade, to lids, while highlighting cheekbones with our crazy-shimmery highlighter, Party Foul.

No matter the vibe, Backtalk has your eyes and cheeks speaking volumes.

Backtalk Palette takes no prisoners—much like your attitude—and fits 12 gorgeous pigments into one sleek palette. A double-sided, removable mirror acts as a divider between the Eyeshadow shades and the blush and highlighter shades.

Now, go get ’em!
