ColorBlend Deluxe Xtreme Lips | First Impressions and Review

I have been meaning to do this review for the longest time, so here it is. ColorBlend is makeup company founded in the UK. I actually did an interview with Kesha the founder (here), and she spoke about the inspiration behind the brand and I love it! I love it when I see black owned businesses. I love it when I see women especially women of colour rise against all odds. I decided this year that enough is enough. Enough with the critical comments about a woman’s appearance. Enough with the constant negativity from one…

Primark Liquid Lipsticks on Dark Skintones | First Impressions and Review

This is a question for the Brits amongst us. When you want super cheap clothes and shoes that look relatively decent, what is the first store that comes to your mind? Primark isn’t it? Primark is great for cheap clothes, you know simple tops, cardigans, jeans etc, and the quality isn’t too bad. The quality is not too great either if I’m honest. If I was to tell you to buy your makeup from there, what would you say? You would probably look at me like ‘Temi what on earth are you talking about?! I…

The Autumn Lipstick Lookbook for Dark Skintones | Part 2

Hey guys, I hope you enjoyed Part 1 of this post (here). Here are the Browns and Blacks…well one black lipstick. These browns are great for medium to dark skin tones, because they actually show up against my skin! Don’t let the great lighting fool you. To give you some context, I am an NW45…probably a little bit darker due to my holidays this year. I find that some browns are not dark enough to even be seen on dark skin tones. These ones really show up on dark skin tones, so they are worth it.…

The Autumn Lipstick Lookbook for Dark Skintones | Part 1

Hey guys, so we are at that time again….Autumn (or Fall depending on the side of the pond you are on). Honestly, I love this time of year. As much as I love the sun rays, making this melanin pop, it gets tiring some times! Commuting on public transport has been a nightmare this summer! But before I digress and start rambling on about that, I love the colours that come with Autumn. I love the deep reds, browns that come out at this time of the year, especially on my lips. To all my…

Colourpop Ultra Metallic Lipsticks on Dark Skin | Reviews and Swatches (Part 2)

So guys, here is part 2 of my Colourpop Ultra Metallic lipsticks marathon. Check out Part 1 here (for swatches of Maneater, Lights out, Kween, DM, and Zebra). Funnily enough my lips did not suffer after all these swatches. They were easy to remove from my lips, which on the flip side means that they are not matte, and they are not transfer-proof. I think I am slowly liking these metallic lipsticks. Some of them are wayyyy too light, but there are a few that I unexpectedly liked. The colours I am swatching in this…

Colourpop Ultra Metallic Lipsticks on Dark Skin | Reviews and Swatches (Part 1)

Hey y’all! So the story goes a little something like this…’in west Philadelphia, born and raised, in playground is where I spent most of my days’. I’m joking! Haha! The real story is basically I got paid, was feeling happy, wanted to buy one Colourpop Metallic Lipstick, didn’t know which shade to buy, so I bought them all! Yup, I bought all the newly released shades because I wanted to see how they would look on my lips. This ‘metallic’ lipstick trend is quite interesting for me, because I am just not sure about it!…

Sleek Matte Me Lipsticks | New shades on Dark skin

As a British blogger (I hate calling myself that sometimes!), I think it is important for me to ensure that I review products that are available in the UK. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the wave of the things we don’t have here, forgetting that we do have some pretty good makeup products here. One of the great makeup brands we have in the UK is Sleek Cosmetics. Sleek have been around since I was a teenager battling with acne and obsessing over boys…which I like to think was a long time…
