I wasn’t going to post this, but I thought what the heck? It is important to me, so I might as well share it. To set the scene, I will explain abit about myself.

Beauty Cocoon Box | Beauty Subscription Box for Women of Colour

This is a review about Beauty Cocoon Beauty subscription boxes. To be honest I have felt some sort of way about beauty subscription boxes. I usually find them full of beauty products that I cannot use. I mean when you receive beige concealer, you just think (as a dark skin girl) ermmmmmmmm so what am I going to do with this product!!!

Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette on dark skin | Part 1

Today we are looking at the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Palette and what it is like on dark skin. I remember when this palette came out it literally broke the Internet, it was constantly sold out and was incredibly hard to get your hands on. I just waited. I’ve learnt not to fall for the over-hyped products, because there will be another product that comes out and the hype shifts then voila the product is constantly in stock. Hence why this review is coming a little late in the game, but y’all know I had…
