Black Moon Cosmetics Trinity Trio and Myth Unboxing and Swatches

First, excuse any noise please – there was a pool party going on outside my window, lol! Anyway, my Black Moon package came today and I am SO excited to try out these lipsticks! It also doesn’t hurt that the packaging is absolutely to die for. Check ’em out! I also filmed a Summer Faves video for hair and beauty that will be posted in the next few days, so stay tuned! xoxo

First Impression + Swatches: Coloured Raine Fame

Coloured Raine has been on my list for awhile, but the shades I want (Fame and Mary) are often sold out. However, I was buying some OCC Lip Tar from Ricky’s and they had it in stock, and better yet, I needed to buy one more thing for free shipping. Bam.

The packaging to me is ehhhh – I know I sound so picky, but it’s either the font they use or the randomly pink top that I’m just not feeling. But I mean hey, it’s lipstick, not shoes. It’s what’s inside that counts!

It smells faintly like paint, which I also do not like, but this fades quickly once it dries down, so not a big deal.

QFTPC Master List for Buying Black-Owned for Beauty & Wellness

Buying black-owned is becoming more and more of an emphasis everyday, but it definitely doesn’t always fall under the “convenient” spectrum. Truthfully, I get annoyed every time I write a compiled post either featuring black women or black business (not at them!) because it’s often so time consuming to get a good list going. It can take hours and hours of research and Googling (thank goodness for TV). And even furthermore, the quality of the product or customer service isn’t always known, which can potentially cause problems if someone has a less than stellar experience. So, I wanted to compile a list of businesses that I have ordered from and can vouch for, at least on some level. Happy shopping!

Milani Amore Mattalics Chromatic Addict Live Wear Test and Review

Hey everyone! So this review is a little different – I decided to snap myself with my lipstick on each hour to see how it looked and was holding up depending on what I was doing. Chromatic Addict is an absolutely amazing shade, but how was the performance? And just FYI in case you were curious, I have read that this shade is a close dupe to Kylie’s King K.

*This shade is currently sold out on the Milani site and I have been unable to find it at CVS, but I hope they restock or make these colors permanent.
