Fenty Beauty: Just what we needed!

IMG_20170918_202702_592So as everyone knows unless you’ve been living under a rock (lol), Rihanna came out with her amazing makeup line which launched for Sephora. It has been one of the most talked about makeup releases in a very long time + as a woman of color, I’m very proud we are included right of the jump.

You can read many many articles about this line so I won’t ramble on too much but I will share with you what I bought + a video on how it looks on my skin type + tone.

 

SEPHORA SHOPPING TRIP

Here is the mini Fenty Display at Sephora.

 

Here is the larger display at Sephora. You can hear at the end, one of the staff tells me I have beautiful skin. Of course, I got shy like I always do like the derp I am lolol.

 

WHAT I PURCHASED:

20170918_045639

Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Primer SIZE 1.08 oz/ 32 mL Cost: $32

 

20170918_032036

This is a swatch of the primer. Very smooth + creamy but not at all oily. Melts right into the skin + has a light fall like/spicy sweet scent.

 

20170918_045631

Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation  Shade: 450 SIZE 1.08 oz/ 32 mL Cost: $34

20170918_043141

This foundation goes on smoothly + dries down quickly to a soft matte. The product does oxidize slightly but nothing too crazy in my opinion. You don’t feel like you’re wearing foundation, it just feels like skin!

 

20170918_045617

Invisimatte Blotting Powder SIZE 0.3 oz/ 8.5 g Cost: $32

20170918_045559

20170918_050117

The cushion is nice + I use it for on the go purposes but not for my daily application. It’s soft + the back has this faux leather texture. Simple + classy.

 

 

Here you can kind of get a look at the packaging. It’s white with this shimmery purple pearlescent effect. Very pretty!

 

20170918_023821

Precision Makeup Sponge 100 Cost: $16.00

 

20170918_023810

This sponge is very similar to the Beauty Blender in regards to the feel of it. It’s also latex free so it work for those who may be allergic to latex. I like this one a lot + it blends really nicely.

20170918_045519

Match Stix Matte Skinstick SIZE 0.25 oz/ 7.10 g Cost: $25.00

20170918_045310

This Match Stix is in Espresso. It was the deepest shade + I thought I would try it for contouring + it worked really well + blended out beautifully + easily.

20170918_045648

Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter SIZE 2 x 0.12 oz/ 3.5 g Shades: Ginger Binge/ Moscow Mule Cost: $34.00

20170918_045746

I swatched both colors + the Moscow Mule shade is a bit more pigmented + shimmery. The colors are very cooper/rose gold like + just looks so so pretty!

20170918_045258

Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer SIZE 0.30 oz/ 9 mL Shade: Fenty Glow – shimmering rose nude Cost: $18.00

20170918_045244

This gloss is so nice. It’s not sticky and just feels really nice on the lips. It has a candy sweet scent + reminds me of Starburst. It’s a pretty nude mauve/brown + just looks good on every skin tone. It also has nice little gold shimmers in it but it’s not over the top.

 

Over all, I am really impressed with the first launch of Fenty Beauty + I cannot wait to see what else she comes up with because this is a brand I would highly recommend to try out. Check out my video below demoing the items I purchased!

Hello my candied strawberries!!!!

Wow, I can’t believe my last blog post was 10 months ago! How insane is that?? Talk about life taking over!! How have you all been?

Ugh, I’ve been really busy and if you have followed me all these years, you know I rarely slow down and I end up doing a zillion projects and just end up going MIA. Again, I apologize but I have good reasons!!! LOL.

So if you all follow me on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook etc., you know that I have been acting and doing a lot of extra work on the television show Grimm. It’s been so amazing and I am doing all of this while working a regular job and trying to keep up with my fashion and beauty endeavors as well. It’s been hard work!

So many interesting things have happened to me and I just can’t wait to continue to share everything with you all.

So, I have a Tumblr as well and that pretty much also syncs with my Instagram at times and it’s all about my acting and daily life stuffs. Please follow so we can stay in touch! The name of my Tumblr is Love – Kai Wiley. I’ve met so many of you through my blog and mutual passion for beautiful things and I just love getting to know you and sharing experiences.

I will be posting here again and posting updated youtube videos so look forward to that as well! Man, I love you guys for sticking around and continuing to read my blog! I hope you learn something and it makes your day!!

Until Next Time…

LOVE, PEACE, AND SHOPPING RECEIPTS!

YSL Mascara? Yes Please!!

Hello all!!
I am back with another cool blog post + this one is a unboxing/mini review thanks to Influenster and YSL!!! WOOT WOOT!!!!!

image

So again, it’s taken me much longer than I wished to find time to blog + I’m sorry about that but life happens + that comes first! Priorities!! Lol. Anyhoo…I had the pleasure of receiving the reformulated YSL Faux Cils Mascara (Which can be found here!!) + I must say, it is bomb!!

If you follow me on Instagram or see my feed here on my blog, you may have seen my “before + after” shot wearing the mascara. It’s amazeballs!!!! Check it out below!!

image

The Mascara is $32 but I feel it’s completely worth it. Why? Well, it has luxurious packaging, it smells beautiful, the formula is smooth and doesn’t clump after 2-3 coats and makes your lashes look full and luscious… like wearing faux lashes!!

image

All in all, I give this mascara 5 stars. I’m totally in love with it right now + I receive so many compliments on my lashes when I wear this. Definitely a keeper. It’s a yes from me!

Until Next Time…
LOVE, PEACE, AND SHOPPING RECEIPTS!
