Instagram: Feat Eyeshadows from Impulse Cosmetics


This look was created using a few of the sample eyeshadows that I received from Impulse Cosmetics reviewed here.  I'm not too happy with the pigments which I was told shows more vibrant when you wet them.  The colors then become foiled and are harder to blend that way so I chose not to wet them.

Swatches ~ Cocoa Bean Lip Gloss by Missy Lynn @Start2finishmua on YouTube

 Cocoa Bean Lip Gloss by Missy Lynn @Start2finishmua on YouTube

It's not everyday that a fabulous YouTube vlogger and someone that I've admired for her makeup techniques and business savvy get's her own product on the market.... but Missy Lynn sure has. I've followed this California beauty for quite a while along with a lot of other young beautiful women of color (WOC) beauty vloggers on YouTube and I'm very proud of their accomplishments.

Beauty ~ Lorac Pro Mega Palette for Xmas 2014 Yea or Nay?


This will be the first Mega palette from the Lorac brand.  It seems that ever since Inglot & MUFE released their mega palettes, everyone is jumping on the bandwagon.  I'm a real big fan of the Lorac Pro line, I'm actually in love with my Pro 1 and Pro 2 palettes, but I'm on the fence about this one.

Swatches ~ Anastasia BH Tamanna Dress Your Face Palette

Anastasia BH Tamanna Dress Your Face Palette

I was very excited to order this palette from the Anastasia website.  The Tamanna palette is the third palette of the Dress Your Face palette collection that came out last month.  I didn't order the first two palettes from the collection but this one I just had to have. I think this palette is WOC (woman of color) friendly because it has more colors that suite darker skin tones.

Fashion ~ Maxi Dresses from Hautelook

Fashion ~ Maxi Dresses from Hautelook
I was browsing Hautelook when I came across a particular store (sorry I don't remember the name) that had tons of maxi dresses on sale, all for $22. I bought 4 of them and although they are very thin fabric, they're great for the really hot weather we're having here in Los Angeles.
