A few great things at the Drugstore!! CHECK THEM OUT!!

Better Skin

This concealer is pretty amazing!!! I got this in two colors one in my skin tone and one in a lighter color. I use it mostly in my inner eye corner to hide darkness around my eye and to brighten inner corner. I did find out the hard way that if you use a color that is to light for your skin tone and use it in the v-shape for highlighting you could have a white cast upon your face in pictures. So I use it sparingly in the inner corner and I love it for this. My high end favorite for this type of product is the MAC Prolongwear concealer in NW15 (actually it is my ALL TIME FAV).


A GREAT FIND!! This foundation is amazing and is compared to the higher end Make Up For Ever MAT Velvet Plus Foundation and at a fraction of the price. I use 002 “Buff” and its perfect for light skin tones.


THE BEST mascara of all times (even over high end) Thats all that needs to be said!!


Milani baked blushes are so pigmented and and so beautiful on the skin. I also use them as eyeshadows because they blend so well. Whats my favorite? Luminoso for sure!! Second would have to be Rose Del Oso 🙂


THIS BRONZER THOUGH… Perfection for after you contour and I don’t even use a blush or highlighter because its all inclusive for the GLOW (JLO GLOW). Stunning product 🙂


If your on a budget please do get these Nyx HD Finishing powder, it helps control my oil and pores 🙂


GORGEOUS YET SOMEHOW PERFECT contour powder for fair skin. I know it says bronzer but use it for your contour powder if your fair skin and it will look so beautiful and natural. I love this color.


SO if you have used Stila very black or KatVonD trooper liners this is a $6.99 alternative that is awesome. Very black and waterproof. Once it goes on IT STAYS PUT!!! I believe you can get this at RiteAid.


My holly grail liquid liner of all time. This is a permanent in my collection EVERYDAY!! I love the brush – PERFECT WING every time for me and not expensive at all costing about $5.00. I must have 7 backups 🙂 lol


Ok so I have both of these products and I have to say… I wished I had not shelled out the $40 dollars for the ambient powder when the Wet N Wild for $4.99 “Reserve your Cabana” was amazing!! Its a dupe for sure and such a subtle glow on the skin but makes you look younger and awake maybe even alive 🙂


This Revlon colorstay is just THAT. IT AINT GOING NO WHERE!!! This is the greatest waterproof foundation I have come across. I did a photoshoot in extreme heat (about 104 degrees) for about 6 hours and this foundation still looked flawless even though I kept wiping the sweat of my face during all day. I looked in the mirror when i was done and i coudn’t believe how it held up. Just an FYI – I love it!


Thank you for taking the time to stop by and check out my post 🙂

Till next time…


Mariah Carey and MAC Holiday 2015


Fans of Mariah Carey and MAC aficionados unite this holiday season as the cult-beauty favorite releases a lipstick formulated in honor of the ultimate R&B diva.  The frosted champagne-hued lipstick, appropriately titled “All I Want,” may spark some nostalgia from her infamous classic 90s single and biggest hit “All I Want For Christmas.” The creamy lipstick will retail for $18 and will be sold exclusively online this December, just in time to put the shimmery lip hue to good use underneath the mistletoe!

When asked about her partnership with MAC, the singer responded by saying, “MAC has been my go-to makeup brand for as long as I can remember and I’m so thrilled to be collaborating with them on a lipstick…just in time for the holiday season!” She goes on to describe the shade as “elegant, sophisticated and glamorous”— basically, everything you would expect from the butterfly songstress.

I know I will be getting this 🙂

BH Teams up with Carli Bybel for her NEW PALETTE!!!

When it comes to stardom in the YouTube beauty world, it seems there’s a pattern: First comes video, then comes fans, then comes a custom makeup collaboration.

Carli Bybel creates eyeshadow palette

Beauty vlogger Carli Bybel is the latest to follow this path. Bybel’s youTube channel, “The Beauty Bybel,” has over 3 million followers and boasts videos with makeup tutorials, fitness and health tips, and celebrity-inspired beauty how-to’s.

She partnered with BH Cosmetics, a brand that’s paired up with various other YouTubers, including ItsJudyTime, ThatsHeart and MakeupbyMandy24 to create custom products in the past, to release the Carli Bybel 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette.

“BH Cosmetics is one of the first brands I used when I started freelancing seven years ago,” Bybel said in a press release. “They have high-quality products for a price anyone can afford, which is why I’m so excited to launch my signature palette with them!”

Can you see?


Can you see your goals? Can you see them even when there are obstacles? Most of the time when you are focused on something you are trying to accomplish, so many things seem to interfere. I’ve had this happen to me so many times and it can be quit frustrating. What I learned was to vision a scene like this picture. Your goal is the road ahead and there are many stop lights, dips in the road, things on the side distracting you and sometimes accidents that stop you dead in your tracks. The thing to focus on is the goal (road ahead). It is still there and you are still able to go forward but you have to prioritize. You can handle everything along the way. No reward is without struggle along the way and even so it makes for a sweeter victory. Stay focused, at all times, even when there are things closing in on you. Like this road, it will get dark and again you will have bright beautiful sunshine by morning.
