NYX Lip Lingerie NEW Release 2017

NYX is one of, if not, my absolute favorite affordable makeup brands. I’m always drawn to their vast selection in lipstick shades. THERE ARE SO MANY!

My latest go-to shade range for lip colors are nudes and moody/muted tones. I think they’re the most sexy and effortless on me. I love the shades offered in the NYX Lip Lingerie collection. You can find nudes and muted hues to create super on-trend makeup looks. NYX originally released this collection early 2016 and I purchased 5 colors alone last year. There was mixed reviews on the formula, but like most liquid matte lipsticks you need to initially take care of your lips.

This year I picked up 3 and it was so hard not to buy more. Side note, I have promised myself that this years I would be a responsible spender and not buy every single thing on impulse. So back to the lipsticks, I purchased the 3 that I know I would wear and adore.

The colors I purchased are: Seduction, Cashmere Silk, and Cabaret Show. Seduction is my favorite! I also recommend After Hours, Bustier, and French Maid, especially for deeper skin tones. Check out my swatches and review in the video below and shop the collection at Ulta Beauty here.

Divatress Affordable Wig Review Pt 1

img_1691

I don’t hide my love for affordable wigs, in fact I celebrate it proudly. I’ve been wearing synthetic lace front wigs for a little over a year and have reviewed a ton in different styles, lengths, and hair colors. I have been able to satisfy my desire to be versatile without breaking the bank or damaging my hair by wearing wigs.

Divatress.com sent me a unit to review and I was overjoyed. Before I speak on the wig, let me reassure you that this site has a TON of affordable wig options, so check them out here.

The first wig I reviewed on my YouTube Channel is the  Isis Brown Sugar Lace Front Wig BS219 and you can shop the wig here. I’ve included my list of pros, cons, and styling tips and please watch my un-boxing and try-on as well below.

Pros:

  1. Price is $40 super affordable
  2. Color on the wig is amazing and perfectly blended
  3. The wig shape is an angled bob with flattering layers.
  4. The lace on this wig is super soft and blends well!
  5. Did not have to pluck the part at all. Sometimes the part is too dense and has to be plucked with tweezers.
  6. Large head friendly!

Con:

  1. I wish the back of the wig was denser.
  2. The curls fell easy when I picked them apart by hand.
  3. This wig doesn’t state being heat friendly and says that the hair blend is called human hair style-mix; very confusing.

Styling Tips:

  1. I picked out the curls to achieve more volume and desired texture.
  2. I also sheared the side bang so it will lay perfectly.
  3. I added my concealer to the part to define it more

 

Fall Favorites Tag 2016

Which season do you look forward to the most? For me it’s Fall. There’s not one single thing I dislike about Fall and that’s hard for a picky girl like me. The change in the air brings something alive within me each year, and I can’t help but smile about it. To be honest it’s probably the caffeine that kicks in after the iced pumpkin spiced latte, but oh heck who knows?!?! Speaking of those iced pumpkin spiced lattes, a cult favorite… Fall is full of year-after-year favorites for me that I had to share!

I had so much fun creating this video and sharing my seasonal favorites. I hope you enjoy this and get to know me a little bit more. Don’t forget to let me know some of your favorites too!

Valentine’s Day Glam

Whether you’re going out with a new boo, your main flame, or just with your girls you want to look your best for Valentine’s Day, right? Right! The key to any glam look is to enhance your inner sexy goddess personality. Some of us gals are a fierce and smoking type of sexy, it almost makes you a tad uncomfortable, but in the best way. While on the other hand, some of us are a little more the sweet type of sexy. The palette that will unleash all sorts of glam is the Lorac Unzipped Palette. It’s been the answer to unleashing my inner goddess lately. The quality, pigment, and ease of blending is GRADE A and the shade range is exactly what you need. I can go from office to bad-ass and everything in between. So, in shorter words YOU NEED THIS PALETTE!

In honor of Valentine’s Day (aka Singles Appreciation Day) I got inspired to create 2 looks using this holy grail of a palette. Grab a box of chocolates, watch and enjoy! Click here to buy or usually you can find this at your local Ulta 😉

 

Get Your Wig On

I won’t lie, I’ve been fascinated with the seeing versatility that King Kylie herself has been able to achieve with a few good ass wigs and unconventional hair color. Why? Because I too want to have green hair somedays (seriously I do) and a good blowout. I want this luxury without the hefty price tag or seeing all of my hair on the floor.

A little background about my hair is that it is mostly unprocessed, like a little grown-out hair color from last year, without any chemical processing; aka a relaxer. So to get my hair colored will cause damage, and to get it straight takes about 4 hours. Ain’t nobody got time for that! A wig like the one Kylie and other popular Instagram gals wear off a lot of style options with out damaging a girl’s home-grown locks. Nevertheless these beautiful wigs can retail in the range of $300 or more. Yup… just google virgin hair wigs if you think I’m kidding. Le sigh…

I usually take to Youtube when researching any beauty hack, so my search continued there where I found a possible solution. My research led me to the alternative; a synthetic hair wig. Now while these looked beautiful on other girls on Youtube, I personally grew up terrified of due to the ghastly appearance of plastic looking hair 😦  One bad hair day + tight budget while away from home led me to the beauty store where I resorted to trying on a synthetic wig. I was scared and sure I would not have any luck, well I was wrong. Updated technology has made synthetic hair fibers look better than ever! What a pleasant surprise 🙂 Below in the video I’m showing and telling how I snatched my own Kylie-inspired hair style for a whole lot less! Click, watch and enjoy!

Mauve Grunge Makeup with L’Oreal La Palette Nude 2

Hi glamazons! In my previous post I featured my latest addition to my makeup palette hoarding lol, the L’Oreal La Palette Nude 2. This palette is like a sultry, moody dream of cool tone neutrals with hints of mauve. Needless to say I think this is the sexiest color palette, it’s even the color palette of my room. So I decided to create an alluring grunge inspired makeup tutorial featuring this palette and also my ABH Artist Palette. If you don’t have these colors don’t worry, use something similar. All that matters is that you have fun and get inspired 🙂
