April Favorites

Happy Sunday!!! It has been a crazy busy week and weekend for me!! One of my best friends got married over the weekend and the wedding was amazing!! We had such a good time. Well, as I would say it's better late than never and here are my April Favorites. I didn't get a chance to film a video so I'm doing a regular post. So grab a snack and enjoy!!


Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick

I picked these up at IMATS back in April and have been wearing them ever since!! I have heard so many good things about these liquid lipsticks and had to get my hands on them. They are so pigmented and long wearing. I really didn't have to touch up my lipstick at all during the day. They do not feel drying at all which a plus. They do transfer a bit so be careful of that but they stay pigmented all day. I have two in the colors Berry Me and the limited edition Black Rose. Here are swatches of both.

I really recommend picking a few of these up, they are pretty amazing!! I'm in love with them lol!!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

After hearing some of my favorite You Tubers rave about this brush, I had to pick one up. I already love Real Technique brushes and knew this one would be a new favorite. It applies my foundation evenly and gives a flawless finish. The brush is super soft and just an overall great brush to own. Here is a close up of the brush.


Carol's Daughter Hair Milk Styling Butter

You guys already know this is one of favorite hair care lines. I saw this in Target one day and decided to give it a try. I love the thick and creamy texture of this styler and how moisturizing it is. Here is what the product looks like.

 It gives my hair amazing definition and helps keep my style looking great during the week. Here is a picture of a twistout I did using this styling butter.

Camille Rose Naturals Almond Jai Twisting Butter

I'll admit to picking up hair products and letting them sit in my bathroom for a while until I remember that I purchased the product lol!! I have heard so much about this twisting butter, I had to try it out. I was very impressed with the results I got after using this. I love the creamy consistency and the smell of this product. Here is what the products looks like.

 It helped keep the moisture in my hair and my style lasted for the week. Here is picture of my hair after using this twisting butter.

Shea Moisture Raw Shea Extra Moisture Detangler

This is another random purchase I made at Target lol and really love this product. I already love Shea Moisture and this is another new favorite. I use this before styling my hair to get any tangles out I may have missed. My hair is pretty thick and can get tangled easily. This products really helps styling my hair so much easier.

So that is it for my April Favorites. What were your favorites last month? Have you tried any of these products? Comment below and let me know. Hope you have a great week and see you Thursday.

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

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…
