Rare earth deep minimizing cleansing masque

I admitt, I've been eyeing this masque for a whiiiiiiiiile. It promises to minimize pores, deep clean skin, leaving brighter. I'm a sucker for anything that can brighten this dull skin of mine. I hesistated for a while (it is like $23) but I'm glad I shelled out the money. I have been using this for almost two weeks and I really enjoy it so far.

Of course I will do an update but it looks promising. I used it at night on a clean face. It applies pretty thin, (which I like) and I kept on over night. There was a bit of a sensation but it wasn't huge. I really liked it and I really think it was worth the money.

Revlon Pink Passion

There is nothing more classic to me than a gorgeous pink color. It is a creamy mid-toned pink. It is opaque enough for me but what I really love about the colorstay line is that fat brush of theirs! Amazing coverage.

Just to spice it up a little, I added some white dots by this $1 nail polish. It is called french creme by wet n wild.


I'm always intrigued by new things (especially when it comes to hair) so when I first saw these new braided ponytail by outre I got really excited. I'm not much of a 'ponytail' wearer... not since high school, but I decided to give this a try.

First of all, this was an absolute NIGHTMARE to try to blend with my natural 4c hair. I tried straightening it but it still wasn't really the same texture. After a while, it was a like a lightbulb went off in my head. I took an old wig (freetress vanilla girl) put that in a ponytail (cutting some of the excess off of course) then put the messy ponytail on.

Once I had that in order, the style itself was awesome! It give you a effortless beachy look. Great for summer but you know I'm going to rock it whenever I want.

(Another thing, I absoluetly hate the combs in this. They are short and I had to use a butt load of bobby pins to make sure that it wasn't going to slip off in the street)

I recommend this to women who kind of want to save old wigs, and relaxed girls.

Revlon Minted

This is by far one of my favorite impluse buys. I remember a youtuber mentioned that this was the perfect mint color for dark skin girls. I do have to admitt that it looks pretty darn good on me. This it three coats of it. I did not like the fact that it was on the streaky side and it dries matte. (that top coat better WORK) but the color pay off it sort of worth it.

It chips but not more than regualr nail polish. I'd totally recommend this. I put Sally Hansen's Big Money on the tip as an accent.

Freetress Yunessa

Now this hair, this hair, this hair! The pictures above are first day hair and I was feeling myself the whole night. I'm natural so I braided my hair with mousse the night before. I know it wasn't a perfect blend but it was good enough that I got complimented on like crazy that night. I love the fact that it is an already made U-part wig so it automatically looks like a GOOD sew-in. Nice and full. It is synthetic so the shelf life is on the short side. Fingers crossed that is one of those wigs that get better with age.
So all in all I LOVE this wig, it is definitely going to be a repurchase and it blends okay with natural hair.
