Fall is almost here, which means it’s time for Fall Fashion, Back, to School and time to start a new skincare routine. YAYYYYY!!!! Head on over to Macy’s to grab your gift with purchase offer from Lancome Paris. Hurry, supplies are limited and you don’t want to miss out on this. I’ve been looking for a skincare regimen to help with my discoloration and uneven skin tone but it has been hard to find a product that does NOT contain hydroquinone. I have to stay away from hydroquinone. It’s not good or gentle on my skin, especially on my face. Most skin lightening creams that treat uneven skin tone have hydroquinone as the main ingredient, so, trying to find a gentle and effective skincare product to even out my skin tone is extremely challenging. And for the record, I’m not trying to lighten my complexion. What I want to do is balance and even it out, instead of having multiple batches of different shades on my cheeks and jawline. So, I came across Lancome Paris Visionnaire Crescendo, it’s an at-home peel treatment that works overnight. There are two phases to the treatments; I’ll apply Phase 1 for 14 nights and then Phase 2 for another 14 nights, for total of 28 nights. The formula for Phase 1 contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) from Fruit Acids and Quinoa Husk Extract. The active ingredients in Phase 2 are a combination of Salicylic Acid and Glycolic Acid. All of these ingredients are combined in a concentrated amount to make the Lancome Visionnaire Crescendo Progressive Night Peel a powerful tool in my skincare routine. I will do I full review when I complete the full 28 nights of treatment. So, back to the Lancome gift with purchase offer from Macy’s….since I had to have the Lancome Paris Visionnaire Crescendo night peel, my total gifts from Lancome are worth up to $200. In addition, to the night peel , I chose to get the following gifts with purchase:
- Lancome Visionnaire SPF 20 Multi-Correcting Cream (To correct and perfect my skin texture)
- Lancome Bi-Facial Face Look (Eye makeup remover, mascara, primer and gold highlighter.)
- Lancome La Vie Est Belle fragrance trio (It smells so good. Like refined baby powder—if that even exists.)
- Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate (Cuz’ ya’ll know I got to stay looking young.)
- Lancome 10-day foundation shade sampler
- A blue Lancome cosmetic bag
If you’ve been up on your fashion game, then you already know that Virgil Abloh recently made his debut as the Creative Director of Louis Vuitton with a fashion show packed with celebrities at the Palais Royal in Paris. It was epic, groundbreaking, historical, phenomenal…….the list of words goes on and on, but you get the drift. Virgil Abloh is the MAN OF THE HOUR at one of fashion’s most influential fashion powerhouse’s. There’s a lot to look forward to with Virgil Abloh as the Creative Director at Louis Vuitton, so, Cheers To The New Louis Vuitton Don!!!
Yes, I confess I’m obsessed with makeup and not just with makeup but I’m also a fan of makeup and beauty illustrations. One of my “to-do’s” that’s on my bucket list is to buy a makeup illustration book, but in the meantime let’s take a look at some beautiful makeup illustrations from Bee Shapiro’s feature on , How To Wear Spring’s Most Inventive New Makeup from the NY Times.
Ladies, it’s almost time for spring. My favorite season. The flowers will be blooming and so should your wardrobe. Spring time calls for sexy heels and stylish pedicures. If you find yourself getting ready for a spring fling or you just simply want to doll yourself up for a spring outing or a fabulous spring brunch, make sure you dress to kill!!! Wear chic feminine shoes, like the ones pictured above from the Marchesa Spring 2018 fashion shoe collection and turn on the glam factor with black lace socks.
It’s finally, Friday, September 8, 2017. The official launch date of Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty makeup line. There’s a range of makeup shades to match a variety of different skin tones. Pick from 40 shades of foundation and 30 shades of skinsticks. The makeup line is designed for a lightweight application that allows you to layer on more build-up coverage if you want. Using Fenty Beauty makes your skin and makeup look natural not cakey or makeup heavy. Fenty Beauty is available online at Fenty Beauty, Sephora and Harvey Nichol’s. When designing the makeup collection, Rihanna wanted to create a makeup line, “that looks like perfect skin NOT like makeup on skin.”
Some gorgeous makeup looks from when Rihanna wore her own line of Fenty Beauty.
Rihanna accepted the 2016 Black Girls Rock Rockstar Award wearing Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife and Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer.
Rihanna stunned with her Versailles-inspired collection. She wore Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation in 340, Invisimatte Blotting Powder, Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter Duos in Moscow Mule and Chic Phreak, and Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer.
