So forgive me but I bought into the hype and couldn’t resist getting one of the newest sponge crazes out there. The idea of a velvet sponge that seems like its covered in a thousand tiny little hairs seemed a bit daunting and gimmicky but I am not one to shy away from a challenge, keep reading to see how it turned out.
Sometimes life gives you lemonade when you didn’t even have lemons. Complexion products have always been a love of mine since I believe the base is the the pivotal foundation of any makeup look (no pun intended). When Fenty Beauty graced the industry with a glimpse of what a fully inclusive shade range looked like and made it mainstream it seemed like it couldn’t get any better; but just when you start to get comfortable she did it again by not only dropping out products to round out your complexion routine but also expanding her already extensive range. I was able to get my hands on the new concealers and picked up a new setting powder as well. Lets dive right in and I’ll give you my thoughts.
The concealers mimic the same packaging as the foundations, they have a flat doe foot applicator that makes putting it on a bit easier. The frosted glass gives it a air of sophistication but makes it a tad hard to gauge the shade inside. The powders have a metallic topper but the inside contains a FB shiftier, I would have liked to see a stopper to prefect too much powder fall out.
Formula / Shade Range
The formula itself is very creamy… it reminds me of the NARS concealer and goes on very opaque but is very lightweight and super bendable. The concealers compliment the foundations so there are a whopping 60 shades available. The powders were finely milled and very lightweight on the skin. There are many shades and options available for all your different setting needs.
While I loved the expansion and the foundations I had a hard time finding my true shade in the range… since the original launch many companies have started expanding and it is easy to find a true match even in the drug store… over all the shades are impressive and the quality if there… I was unable to find a setting powder match but the shade I did use was very nice on the skin over all the collection gets a 4.5/5 from me.
2018 was a very good year for me, I loved alot of my looks but sadly I did not photograph as many as I wanted to this year. So one of my new year’s goals is to capture more of my outfits on camera. As you can see summer is when I thrive!! Hence why most of my favorite posts are from the summer 🙂
I normally hate the all denim look but I tried it on my birthday this year and loved every minute I spent in this outfit. Read Here 🙂
This denim jacket was an outfit superstar for me this year! I loved this topical romper! This look was the embodied my summer vibe. Fresh white sneakers and cute floral print. Check it out Here 🙂
I’ve been told that yellow is my color… what do you think? This is one of my favorite sweaters simply because of the bright hue. See More Here 🙂
This floral romper was one of my favorites because of the wide legs this is what I call my power-fit. Read HERE 🙂
I had a big thing for tropical prints last year and while I let this dress hang in my closet for over a year before I finally debuted it here. See More Here 🙂
Last but not least my favorite outfit of 2018 is the stripped romper because it pushed me out of my comfort zone! I never go strapless but I loved this look! Check it out Here 🙂
I can’t wait to see what this year has in store for me and I hope you will all join my on my journey.
So I have been going through my files since this year is nearing its end and I stumbled upon these pictures I took while the weather still liked us and didn’t have its heart set on snow at the drop of a dime. Since the weather is nice and chilled out now it was fun looking back at some of the shots I took when I still thought it was okay to take the warm weather for granted. I am obsessed with this kimono and it has my favorite type of fish (that I can’t eat) Koi fish are so pretty to me and it is one of the main reasons I bought this kimono the instant I saw it.

August seems to be speeding by and now we are dealing with the hot humid aftermath. I decided to sit down and film a little video telling you all about some of the things I loved throughout the month of August. I hope you enjoy watching it cause I had a blast filming it.
