Go Bold with Liquid Courage Cosmetics!

I wouldn’t consider myself to be fearless. Not by any means. I can give you a list of all that scares me–but courage on the other hand, that’s something I’ve always had. My fears have never stopped me from taking a leap of faith and trying things I might fail. Courage is defined as “the ability to do something that frightens one.” Often times as successful women we are fearful, yet always courageous.  Roshell Rinkins, founder of Liquid Courage Cosmetics…

New Red Alert! LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick

You all know I love a strong red lip. My go-to is generally Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso, but when I find other good reds I have to give them a shoutout. I recently got my hands on the LOC Vibrant Matte Lipstick ($10) in my March Birchbox and brought it along with me to Cuba. I had never previously heard of the brand LOC and was pleasantly surprised at just how pigmented the color was. It’s just the…

Non-Red Lip Colors for Valentine’s Day!

I love red lipstick. To me it’s the perfect color and goes so well with almost everything I wear. It just brightens the mood. BUT, for Valentine’s Day let’s admit — it’s super cliché. With V-Day only a few days away I wanted to round up a few lip colors that were more unexpected to spice things up. For my shoot I went a little extreme and rocked a black lipstick from Black | Up ($23). However, here are some…

MAC’s “Sin” Lipstick: The Perfect Transitional Lip Color for Fall

Its no secret that I love lipstick and will use any excuse to bust out a new shade. Since we’re transitioning (very quickly) through fall to winter its time for me to start rocking deeper hues. I recently stumbled across MAC’s “Sin” Lipstick ($17), which I am obsessed with. Sin offers just the right amount of vampy pigmentation to rock from day to night for an edgy look. It’s a deep dark blue-based red that goes well with my complexion.…

A Case For Black Lipstick!

As you all know, I love experimenting with lip colors and textures–the bolder, the better. This time around I decided to take a new risk and venture off into the world of black lipstick. I know, super gothic and a little extreme, but I had to try it for myself. Also, I get that it’s the middle of summer, so I wouldn’t advise rocking it during the day, but it actually does give a very chic nighttime look. The black…

My Favorite Summer Lip Color from Kat Von D Beauty

I am so sorry for the delay in posts! Just got back from New Orleans a few days ago and I’ve been playing catch up with my life. The trip was amazing, to say the least. My mom and I had a blast – and since the weather was so great, I got to pretend it was really summer for a few days. While there, I also got to revive one of my favorite lip colors that I discovered at…

Black | Up Cosmetics

Initially this story was going to be solely about a new foundation that I am trying out for the spring by Black | Up cosmetics. However, once I got my hands on a few more products from the brand, I fell in love and had to give you all the low down on the company overall. Black | Up is a Parisian cosmetics brand that caters to women of darker skin tones, and has recently launched in the U.S. As…

Red Hot! Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

I have pretty big lips—as you can probably see from photos. Back in college if you told me that I’d be fearless with my lipstick choices and wear a statement lip practically everyday, I wouldn’t have believed you. I only wore lipstick on rare occasions and was too scared to try anything besides a swipe of lip balm while out during the day. Today, on the other hand, the sky is the limit when it comes to a lip color. I…
