  • Product Review: Hard Candy In the Shadow Eye Palette, Kaleyedescope and Mouthing Off Sheer Lip Shines


    The first time I experienced Hard Candy was back in 2002 when I was working as a Lead at Sephora at the Dadeland Mall in Miami. I had heard quite a bit about the amazing nail polishes and how the creator of the brand use to mix up different polishes to create the unique colors and textures that eventually took the brand to new levels.

    One of the products that Hard Candy was known for back then was the Half Baked Bronzer which was truly one of the best bronzers on the market with its high shimmer and gorgeous bronze shade. Continue Reading

  • Lancome’s Juiciest Treat Goes Green!


    I heart Juicy Tubes! Ever since I first encountered the little tubes of pure shimmering gloss, I have had an ongoing love affair with them and try to cop a few every season or at least get the holiday gift pack with six or seven shades.

    This spring, Lancome is taking their juicy tube enterprise to the green level with a special collection of eco-chic formulations that are good for the lips and keep lips looking good! Who said being eco-fabulous meant you had to look like a washed out granola hippie? Going green these days is just as sexy and glamorous as rocking the latest D&G lip gloss or indulging in a bold new shadow from NYX.

  • Product Review: Maybelline’s Shinesational Lip Gloss

    2213540Some of you may or may not know but besides being a beauty blogger, I am also the Beauty Editor for Kouture Magazine, a new high fashion and beauty publication for today’s affluent woman of color (think the African-American Elle or Harper’s Bazaar). I am currently wrapping up the summer issue which will be on newsstands sometime in late May and I am doing a story on the latest in lip products for summer.

    Being that I am a full-fledge lip gloss junkie, I was so excited when the products showed up on my doorstep for testing and possible consideration for the story. One of the lip glosses that I truly loved testing were the Maybelline’s Shinesational lip glosses. The instant I picked up the tubes, I was reminded of Lancome’s famed juicy tubes but at half the price these glosses pack just as much of a punch and are a better buy!

  • CoverGirl Shines On


    As a lip gloss junkie, I have tried just about every gloss  on the planet and probably even some there are from other worlds. I live for a great gloss and usually carry about six to seven different glosses around in my clutch on any given day. So you can imagine how excited I was when I received the new Shine Blast glosses from CoverGirl! It was like Christmas morning for a beauty editor -a box of sweet lip glosses – its gets no better!

    I received two glosses along with the rest of my beauty bounty. Here is my review of both glosses: Continue Reading
