Lipgloss of the Month & New Product Review

This month's lipgloss of the month is something that I've stumbled upon by reading other beauty blogs. Two bloggers, Beauty and the Brown Girl and Adventures in Makeup both blogged about the new Wet n Wild Natural wear lip shimmers. Click on their links for more pics, swatches and reviews of the shimmers.

Wet n Wild makeup brand has been around for a while but they've finally upped their game in the last few years. Anyway, while at my local Rite Aid -I picked up one of the shimmers and decided to try it and I'm impressed. I got the color Tart #101, which has an orange cap so I thought the color would be orange but it came out pink... it still looks good though :)


The result!

My thoughts... Another great creation from Wet n Wild, the price is very affordable for $1.99. It claims to be a lip balm but the color pay off is like lipstick! It's approved by the Natural Products Association and it's infused with vitamins and natural oils for optimum moisture. Make sure your lips are exfoliated before wearing it because as with any other lip balm it will flake if your skin is peeling.

I'm going to go back and get some more colors!

How I Refurbished my Louis Vuitton Speedy...

I bought an authentic preloved Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy bag a few months back. While I was so excited to finally get the bag and wear it, I realized (at that time of buying and when I received it) that the bag had some wear on it that could use some fixing up. After searching online, I found a blogger, Lollipuff, who posted an article on how to refurbish LV bags.

Based on the recommendations in the post, I used the following products: Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Blue Magic Metal Polish cream (tube) and Cadillac Boot and Shine leather conditioner. I also used laundry detergent and baby wipes. All of the products used can be used on any bag to spruce it up. Read on for the deets, to see how you can spruce up your handbag!


At first glance, the bag had some sheen on the exterior. Most of the brass fixtures had green tarnishing (which happens with aging of brass). The leather handles were dull. The bag had lost some of its shape. The inside was the kicker! The red interior was terrib…

Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face 101 :DC Makeup Class (Recap)!

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending Alexandra Butler's A Beautiful Face makeup class. I met Alexandra the first time at The NYC Makeup show last May; before then I had been following her work since an interview she did on Erin Bailey's (Scandalous Beauty) beauty blog.

Alex is a beautiful and amazingly talented freelance makeup artist who currently lives in Atlanta. She worked for Mac for a while and now she's professionally freelancing on her own. She has all kinds of clients from your every day women to celebrity clients. She has done makeup for cast members from Love and Hip Hop Atlanta and also Real Housewives of Atlanta TV shows. I've always admired her flawless face makeup, especially the way she sculpts and contours or as she would say "snatched up your face."

Alex has been hosting makeup shows in several states and she made her way to DC this past Sunday, I couldn't wait (I registered back in February)! I loved the class so much, I r…
