Like a lot of my beauty finds, I came across Klur skincare on Instagram.  I was attracted to the line because of the gorgeous minimalistic and artistic aesthetic from the brand.  I was even more excited to learn that brand is owned by a Black woman who’s a professional esthetician! Klur is a seven piece line consisting of natural cleansers,…

Affordable Beauty: Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse

There are times when a beauty product from a mass brand is just as good or even better than a more expensive beauty product and  in this case, it would be the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Mousse. And if I’m not mistaken, these beautiful matte lippies dropped sometime in 2019, but I am just now jumping on the bandwagon. …

Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation Review

I’m late on this review, but I’m not late in buying and trying this relatively new Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation.  The foundation dropped in late July 2019 and prior to the launch, I believe it was the most anticipated of foundation launches ever! I don’t have to explain to you how makeup artist goddess, Pat McGrath,…

Summer Beauty: Chanel Cruise 2019 Lumière Et Contraste

As someone who reads everything about beauty, I find that I follow trends less and less.  With so much upheaval in the beauty space that affects how and what we buy these days, it’s kind of surprising that major beauty brands still follow the business model of dictating to me/us what we should wear.  In a way, seasonal collections are…

The Fragrance: Louis Vuitton Fragrances

I know that it's said that you should pick a fragrance that's personal to you and stick with it.  I'm speaking of picking a signature scent.  I don't know about that because I have worn many "signature" scents for years, but I believe that the type of scents you're attracted to are more or less your signature.  If you're into…

LIVING LIFE: Podcasts On My Radar

On my daily commute, which is painfully long due to the horrendous traffic where I live, having great music is a must!  But sometimes I need something more and podcasts are a must.  Podcasts are a great way to decompress and listen and learn something new.  It's also a great way to gain information that you may not otherwise come…

On Trial: Perricone MD High Potency Classics Face Finishing & Firming Moisturizer

So, I was recently sent a generous PR sample of the Perricone MD High Potency Classics Face Finishing & Firming Moisturizer.  This luxe, rose scented cream is rich in texture and moisture, so much so that it feels like melted butter on the skin.  Formulated for dry, combination, normal, and sensitive skin — it’s great for plumping up the skin…

Fall Lip Colors

I have a confession.  I'm not ready for summer to be over and as far as I'm concerned as long as it's hot as hell outside, it's summer -- to me.  But as habit would have it, when August rolls around, I can't help, but be tempted by all of the September issues dropping out of the sky and being…
