Lady in Red

I have always loved the color red for your hair. Its something about it that I just love. Red is the color or POWER and  PASSION. When I am wearing a red lip you can’t tell me NOTHING!

When I saw this beauty on Divatress website I knew I had to get my hands on it. I am not going to lie, I was a little intimidated by the color when I first got it out of the box. I actually purchased it in October and I just wore it out This month (Jan 2018).

I customized the unit by cutting a bang into it and framing it around my face. This unit is semi-big head friendly(that’s why I have a bang) It is a lace front and synthetic hair. The curls are nice and has the volume I want when I wear a curly wig.

It has a comb in the back and you are able to adjust it to fit most head shapes. When it comes to coloring my hair, that is something I decided not to do. However, I LOVE bold colors and I am always looking for a way to wear them without damaging my hair. I encourage you to try a wig if you want to color your hair. Even if you just want to see what you look like in a particular color before you actually dye your own tresses.

Golden Flowers is one of my favorite pieces that I own.

Wear Truth and Gold is a company that makes shirts for activist big and small. Their shirts are conversation starters for sure.

The weather outside is getting cold and that means you need a cute mug to hold your coffee, tea or hot chocolate. The Dyna Smile has some of the best looking mugs out there. I own two of them and they put a smile on my face every morning that I drink from them.

Anti Haul – Beauty products I will not buy

There is a challenge video going on over on Youtube, the anti haul video is a a fun video to make. You don’t have to spend money( Or maybe you did and you wouldn’t recommend the product) and you get ot share your opinion on why those products aren’t worth you spending money on.

There are about seven products I have listed in the video. I could have listed a few more but I didn’t want the video to be too long. One product that I didn’t list was one that I personally bought and that was the ABH Renaissance palette. I LOVE a few of the colors ( Love letter, Venitian red and Red ocher are my fave) However the amount of FALL OUT is RIDICULOUS!

I own the ABH World Travler palette and that is amazing, no fall out and one of my favorite everyday palette to use.  I am so sad that it was only limited time.

BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Face Palette Review

I have been a FAN of Becca products since I started playing around in makeup last June. I was amazed at the quality of their products as well as the color payoff. The best part, they look amazing on people of color and does not leaving you looking pale or ashy.

I was so excited when Champagne pop came out and I bought that, then the palette came out in december including Blushed Copper and Pearl. NOW we have a face palette that includes Champagne pop as well as a NEW highlighter called Proseco pop and THREE blushes.

This does not hit online until May 26, 2016 at 9am PST and it hits stores on 6/16. If you are wondering if it is worth all the hype check out my review and swatch video below.
