My Highlight, Concealer and Bronzer Collection

Hey guys! Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! I am back with my January All About Makeup series with the products that I use the highlight, conceal and my bronzers!


Mac Iridescent Loose Powder in Golden Bronze

I never really used any products to highlight before I started watching You Tube. I had no clue what highlighting was anyway lol! This was one of the first products that I picked up to try out and I love it so much! A little bit goes a long way with this powder and it is so pretty when the light hits your skin.

Benefit Cosmetics Watts Up

I completely forgot I had this product. I received this last year for my birthday from Sephora. It was a set with They're Real mascara and I really do like this as a highlight. I've only used it a few times but it has an easy application and it look so pretty. I would purchase a full size when I use this sample.

The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

I received this in a Birchbox and haven't given it a try yet but I here so many good things about this product from other bloggers. The color looks amazing and it can also be used as an eyeshadow. I will be trying this out soon.


Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in NC45

I've heard so much about this concealer and I honestly know why this is one of the best concealers out there. I love that it not too thick and a little bit goes a long way. My under eye area looks so refreshed and bright like I had a full night sleep. I just love this concealer so much!!

Maybelline Fit Me Shine Free Foundation Stick in Toffee Caramel

I received a coupon from Target for 2.00 off for this Fit Me Foundation line when it first launched. I couldn't figure out my shade so I got this to try as a concealer and I really like it. I use this more when I'm in a rush in the mornings. I just swipe it under my eyes and blend with my fingers. It give great coverage and its more of a matte look but I still looked refreshed. Hopefully I can figure out my shade so I can try this as a foundation.

Cover Girl Queen Collection Concealer in Light

This was the first concealer that I purchased ever. I never wore concealer and never knew what it really was until sometime last year. I didn't think I needed it so much but decided to give it a try. I picked this shade all by myself and I was really happy with this concealer until I purchased my Mac one.


Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronze in Medium Deep

I got this bronzer in the Beauty Blogger Favorites kit from Sephora and I just love this bronzer. It gives such a nice glow and smells just like chocolate. Its hard not wanting to eat it!! I love that this bronzer doesn't have shimmer to it for times I don't want that shimmer look to my face.

Victoria's Secret Mega Glow Bronzer in Medium/Deep and Heatwave

I picked these bronzers up during the Semi Annual sale and I just love them. They are perfect for the summer time and just overall a great product to have. I don't think Victoria's Secret has these two anymore but I just love the glow they give my face and just how they look on my skin. I believe these are the first bronzers that I've tried out.

Pixi in Summertime

I received this bronzer in my my first Ipsy bag and I've always seen this brand in Target but wasn't too interested in trying them out. I do like this bronzer but it was too light for my complexion. I think I will use this as highlight or mix with another bronzer.

What are your favorite products to use for highlighting, concealing and as a bronzer? Comment and let me know!


  1. I use both of those concealers you mentioned. I really love the Fit Me concealer. And I'm the same way with highlighters. I was clueless when it came to highlighters. I have one at the moment that I need to start wearing. Lol. Great products….Oh I didn't even know bronzers could be used on dark skin Lol. (Don't judge me hahaha). I need to try them out. Great post

    1. Hey Rhondine, hey I didn't know I could use bronzers too! Its hard trying to find the right shade. Thanks for reading!

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh! 

You guys may see another appearance from my son, he is so silly and full of energy lol! I think I forgot to mention some favorites but you'll see them next month. What products have you tried? What were your thoughts? See you guys Thursday!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
