August Monthly Favorites

Hey Guys!! Can you believe September is here already?? Where did the summer go? Well, its 94 degrees today so it is still trying to hold on. I usually do videos for my monthly favorites but my poor laptop is still in the shop and I'm hoping it can be up and running soon. So since I'm on borrowed computers, it will be a regular post. I didn't have too many favorites last month but I really loved these items and used them the whole month.

Jesse's Girl Cosmetics Eye Shadow Primer- I got this at IMATS and this paired with my MAC paint pot works wonders. My shadows don't move or crease and stay all day.

Jesse's Girl Cosmetics Pure Pigment Eye Dust in Flambe, Cafe Au Lait and Peek-A-Boo- I will be doing a more in depth post and review on the Jesse's Girl items I got from IMATS but I'm in love this these pigments. They are so pigmented and I love the container it comes in. It makes it impossible not to spill the whole container. Plus, they are so affordable. These are on my list for repurchase at IMATS next year lol!

Jesse's Girl Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner- I watch a lot of Julie G on You Tube and she uses this eyeliner in almost every tutorial she does. I finally got around to using this and I love this eyeliner!! Once you apply it, it does not go anywhere until you wash your face. It stays pigmented all day and the color does not fade. The felt tip pen also makes it so easy to apply, it's great for beginners.

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara- I did a full review on this and other Smashbox items last month. This mascara has become a new favorite on mine. I love how it defines my lashes and makes them look so long and full. I have two sample size ones to use up before repurchasing the full size.

So that is it for my August Monthly Favorites. What were your favorites last month? Have you tried any of my favorites before? Comment below and let me know.

Had an amazing weekend with friends with swimming all day, a cookout and seeing fireworks! It was just a great time.

So sad I didn't get any Funnel Cake or Cotton Candy this weekend. 

I'm confused on why the Pumpkin Spice Latte is out so early!! I'm not ready for Fall drinks until it's actually Fall and cool out lol!!

I'm ready for some football!! Go EAGLES!!

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.

I normally don't set my foundation with a powder and wanted to start doing s…

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…
