Nicka K New York The Matte Lipsticks 

Word of advice to those of you who don’t check out your local beauty supply store for affordable lipsticks, DON’T SLEEP!! I got a few of the Nicka K matte lipsticks a few months back on not thinking these would be in my BSS! 

I strolled in there this weekend for some dye and boom they were sitting pretty in their display (quite a few colors that I already have were low on stock). I paid $1.99 for these, they smell awesome (like the strawberry shortcake toy I had growing up) and dry down matte like a mother!! These don’t budge and they’re a task to remove when you’re ready so I suggest you have some olive oil real close!!

Which one(s) do you like?

Starving for a Neverfull?

Lol my post title is made with much pun… If you know the cost of this bag, you know why!!
I don’t know what came over me a few Saturdays ago…. I couldn’t sleep any longer so I had a bright idea to reorganize all my handbags (among other things in there). I’ve been rocking my cognac colored MCM Liz Reversible Shopper for months now and it always dawned on me how similar it is to the Louis Vuitton’s Neverfull MM handbag. I took the time to do my research and weigh the pros and cons of the Liz shopper to the neverfull. 

Here’s what I’ve found….
MCM LIZ REVERSIBLE SHOPPER in medium (my bag)

  • No inside pocket or keychain holder
  • If you wear any clothes with a strong dye color, it can transfer & stain the cognac colored style.

Now let’s talk about this Neverfull chic lol…

  • Pouch is smaller than MCM clutch
  • Doesn’t have metal feet
  • Pouch cannot be worn on a shoulder
  • Handbag isn’t reversible 
  • May I repeat that IT’S $1,260 lol!!!!

Some people say “it’s just shoes” or “it’s just a purse, but consider it an investment! Don’t get me wrong, me and Lou we are cool! I’m not saying I’ll roll up in his store and make it rain  (I do own 3 of his bags bought pre-loved)…. but I’m saying tho, anybody know where the clearance rack is LOL!

So tell me, which one do you prefer to tote and why? Which LV’s do you own? Which MCM style purse do you own/like? 

Most importantly, tell me if you think the Neverfull is worth the price or is it how your pockets are left?

PS- I pretty content with my MCM Shopper but if you’re in the market for a pre-loved LV bag, check out these sites…..I have a pre-loved Speedy 35 for a great price on the way to me  ✌🏾️

The Real, Fashionphile and Tradesy…… don’t starve for a Neverfull!!

    Wet N Wild Beauty LE Pop Back to School collection haul

    Y’all know I’m not into lipgloss, but you do know that I’m into lashes and nail polish right?!

    Recently Wet N Wild beauty released this back to school limited edition collection consisting of 2 sets of lashes, 4 polishes and 6 lipglosses.

    I of course got all the polishes, but I also got 2 lip glosses because I want to see if I can matte them somehow (wish me luck). I only purchased one set of the lashes, I like how these flare out.



    I got them especially to collect them cause I love any product with pop art design on them!!

    “Violet Furs” (purple) & “Very Well Red” (Red)

    If you go on the hunt for this collection, what are you picking up???

    Lipstick Haul

    My latest lippie haul.

    First up is new shades NYX released of their Liquid Suede collection.

    Next is some matte lip Cremé lipsticks by the brand Italia Deluxe, they’re a eBay find. Sometimes I just type in matte liquid lipsticks on eBay and scour through the choices looking for the next come up!

    Lastly, these are some shades of Kleancolor “Madly Matte” lipgloss (they’re not lip gloss at all). You can find them on Kleancolor site, eBay or even your beauty supply store. 

    What new lipsticks have you recently purchased? I’m still waiting on an order from Lena Lashes.

    Thanks for reading!

    Weekend behavior 

    This weekend I just took the time to rest…. Saturday I didn’t do a thing but catch up on well needed sleep as I have been waking up super early for no reason but with a little pain. Mornings are often tough being that I tend to sleep in one position. Hopefully soon this pain will be a thing of the past for me.

    Sunday I was determined to get some fresh air, I guess picking up some groceries was the highlight of my weekend.

    I was awake long enough to do my nails. I wanted something colorful & water marble so I  went with the brand that doesn’t fight me on it!! I’m just glad I still got the juice for doing water marble designs!!

    BETTINA (<— click link to check out their products). Colors used are: Pink (sweetheart), Green (Green apple), Yellow, Blue (Aqua), Purple (Believe), Orange (Epic).

    YES!! I took it back with this Milani (yellow mark) textured polish!! The textured polish on my pinky is from the OPI Liquid Sand collection, it’s named My Current Crush.

    To go along with my colorful disposition, I put on a pair of turquoise Reeboks that I’ve had for years. These are the 25th Anniversary Freestyle “54-11” Reeboks. Don’t they look brand new, they’re almost 10 years old!!

    How was your weekend? Do anything fun?

    Shoe Organizer Makeup Storage

    I’m just now getting this together after having it thrown on my dresser for a while. As we all know this is actually a hanging shoe organizer, but a creative beauty junkie on IG (I forget who) showed us it’s useful for something else! 

    I got this @ Walmart for I believe $8.00, it comes in cloth/mesh and plastic. I prefer the shelves to be plastic.

    I’m using this for my makeup with a special section for my everyday makeup application tools. 

    On the top I have some anchors that I got from Target’s dollar section, I love items with the anchor design on them for some reason :).

    If you bought this, what beauty items would you store in it?

    Also, I have a new video up of lip swatches of 8 shades from the Maybelline “Loaded Bold” collection. You can view it HERE.

    Meanwhile at Disney Springs 

    Y’all I haven’t been to Disney Springs (formerly known as Downtown Disney) in years!! It came to mind yesterday when I had to pick up my BF from the airport. We heard about #trophyroom opening up recently & made plans to check it out soon. 

    This place has changed soooo much, it’s soooo pretty and just fun looking. I wanted to take pics of so many things but the rain storm wagged me the  “Motumbo finger” with other plans for me lol….

    I did get to take pics of a few sights, see what I saw….
