The Best Setting Powders for Medium to Dark Skin Tones

Setting powders are essential for life, heck they are essential for existence! I’m just playing! But they are pretty important. If you use any sort of cream or liquid products as part of your makeup routine and you don’t use setting powder then girl come and see me! I just want to talk and find out if everything is ok! Why is setting powder so important? Because it sets your liquid or cream products in place. It stops the products from slipping and sliding throughout the day. You know when you first apply your makeup…

Life Updates & What is on my current Beauty Wish List

Hey guys, long time no speak! It has been a while! I tell you being 7 months pregnant with a 2 year old has been pretty challenging, hence the lack of posts! I will be honest with you, I haven’t even looked at makeup for the last 5 months! I have no energy to even apply my makeup talk less of reviewing it. I am even get used to the fact that my makeup room that I fought tooth and nail for, will probably be a baby room in a few months *sobs*. It’s crazy…

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…

Searching for Direction in this Crowded Space & Special Announcement!

When I started this blog I had no expectations, zero. I just wanted to share my thoughts with however wanted to listen to my ramblings and musings. I bought all my makeup myself and even disliked the idea of monetising my blog when people would ask me about it. I used to think that my authenticity comes from the fact that I bought the products myself with my hard earned money. I have come to realise that thought was influenced by a number of popular influencers and YouTubers that were being dishonest about their views…

What makeup product(s) do you spend your coins on?

This question popped into my head and as usual I thought I would ask you guys. What makeup product or products do you spend your money on? If you are like me, it is foundation, concealers and highlighters…oh yeah and setting powders! Heck lets just say all makeup products!  I love me some foundation and I won’t stop till I find Mr. Right! Yes, I refer to my foundations as ‘he’. You know some of my foundations are matte, so they stick around through thick and thin, through the heat struggles they are not going…

MAC Products which are worth keeping in your collection

The title of this post sounds hella shady right? Oops! It wasn’t my intention. I just remember when MAC products made up 100% of my makeup collection. The days when MAC seemed to be the only brand that catered for women with my skin tone. I used to go into MAC and feel like I was in a candy store spending all my hard earned coins. Nowadays, there is a lot more variety on the market for women of colour, more options and let’s be honest they are better options. I don’t think I could…
