Backstage Beauty Cosmetics

chello y’all!

this weekend I had the pleasure of joining my girl Kima at her cosmetics line launch party/makeup class. she’s such a beautiful woman and is embarking on a new journey and I was so glad to support her. the line includes, eyeshadows, lipsticks, lipglosses, lip pencils, eye pencils, face powders, cream foundations, blushers, aaaand coming soon brow pencils.

she worked as a manager for MAC and decided to do what she loves, doing her own thing. I commend her! do what you love, no matter what! take a step out on faith.

check out her website…she’s just getting started so be sure to check back often. and I’ll also be updating you! Backstage Beauty Cosmetics

anywho…of course I purchased a few things, a lipstick, lipgloss, and blush. you’ll be happy to know that I stepped ALL THE WAY out of my neutral box and into some color 😉

so here’s my small haul, but trust there will be more coming soon. don’t forget to check out her site and check back here for updates. I absolutely love women of color who follow their dreams, start businesses, and do whatever it is that makes them happy. support US 🙂

maybe a FOTD will come soon….

MAC Heavenly Creatures Collection (finally)

I have been waiting on this collection to release since late winter/early spring!

As we all know, I am a total freak for MAC MSFs (for whatever reason) and this collection released four. I picked up two.

Head over to MAC’s website to see everything that was released with this collection!

Here’s what I got (swatches and little bit of what I think of them).

Mineralize Skin Finishes: Center of the Universe and Earthshine

I first placed my order some time last week, as collections are always released about a week early for MAC Pro members, but I skipped out on Center of the Universe because I thought I’d had something similar. But after seeing swatches on Glam by Lena’s site, I knew…just knew…I had to have!
