Bringing the vision to life. How do I bring the vision to life?

‘Average won’t cut it. Here’s the thing about average: it’s average. And you? You’re anything but. You’re built to reach higher. To be stronger. To be faster. To feel your best and still push for better. Average will always be out there. Always stay one step ahead’. We spoke about creating and seeing the vision (here). Thanks for the positive feedback I have received from you guys regarding how useful this is/ It is really encouraging to hear how women are striving to make a difference in all different areas. Today, let’s talk about bringing…

Who Am I? | What are my foundation shades?

Who Am I? Some people call me Temi, and some people call me Tope, my full name is Temitope by the way. Some people say I should define myself as a mother first, other people say that I should define myself as a wife first and foremost. Sometimes I wonder if I am a black Christian woman, or I am Christian first before mentioning the colour of my skin. Maybe I should define myself by my gender before mentioning my beliefs, race or my current status. I dont know to be honest, but one thing…

The Good, the Alrights and the Ugly of Liquid Lipsticks | Part 2

“THE ALRIGHTS” You know those makeup products that confuse your soul. One minute, you pick it up and think ‘I like you’, then next minute you remember why you don’t reach for it on a daily basis. It is like when you are hormonal, and you are about to start that time of the month *ladies know what I am talking about here’, and for some reason you just cant stand people who on a normal day you actually like! Like why are you talking to me, why are you even touching me, heck why are…

The Good, the Alrights and the Ugly of Liquid Lipsticks | Part 1

Heyyyyyyy my lovelies, I hope you all are having a great day. I have tried a couple of different brands for liquid lipsticks, and I will be honest with you, I’m getting tired of crap liquid lipsticks. I mean, there are some liquid lipsticks that receive soo much hype, they get the right beauty influencers behind them, sell that the liquid lipstick is the bomb.com and you spend your money buying them and they are just rubbish! On the other hand though, I have tried some liquid lipsticks with amazing formulas. Formulas that leave your…

How to Spot Fake Dose Of Colors Liquid Lipsticks

I think Dose of Colors Liquid Lipsticks have one of the best formulas for liquid lipsticks. They are comfortable and light on your lips but matte. The formula is spot on. Hands down this is one of the best liquid lipsticks out there. I bought a couple of shades from doseofcolors.com when my friend went to America, so I didn’t have to pay for international shipping. Yup, I have to save these coins! I love the shades that they have, they are quite unique, which is a great thing. I haven’t done a full review…

Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lips on Dark Skin | Review and Swatches (Part 2)

Hey guys, here is Part 2 of the Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lipstick range. I tried 5 lipglosses in Part 1 (here), so this part will have the four other colours: Furry, Wolfie, Sookie and Kink. *** MY THOUGHTS: I love these lipglosses. They are not sticky when you apply them and they are pigmented. What I like about them is that although they transfer, which I expected, they last on your lips for a few hours. I love the pigmentation of the lipglosses even the Sheer ones especially the way they look against my dark…

Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lips on Dark Skin | Review and Swatches (Part 1)

I tell you one thing guys, I used to hate my full lips with a passion, and I would do anything to hide them. Funnily enough this blog has helped me to come out of this mentality. I remember the first time I posted a picture of me wearing lipstick, I felt so exposed/vulnerable that I am showing my lips to the world. But here I am! I never ever wear lipglosses! Never! I always thought that lipglosses would make my lips look bigger and more prominent. But I decided to do something else to…
