Sweetest Day FOTD

If you’re from the Chi there’s only a small number of excuses I’ll accept explaining why you don’t know about Sweetest Day!! 
To be fair, if my man wasn’t from Chicago I probably wouldn’t have known either lol. So yeah he schooled me about the whole “Valentine’s Day for men” ordeal. Since he moved thousands of miles here to Florida for the sake of our relationship I do try to oblige his “special occasion”. Now that I think of it, then I don’t need to get him a Valentine’s Day gift right?!

Here’s my Sweetest Day look, I used Juvia’s place “The Magic” & “Sahara” palette for this look.

I couldn’t decide on whether to wear a nude lip or a gold lip, but I ended up wearing a nude lip.

Shirt is from Macy’s.

Frida Kahlo First Impression + swatch 

Hey people…

So last weekend I realized that I’ve been overlooking my email from the CVS Beauty Rewards program, telling me that I have redeemable points. So with that and a 30% off coupon I decided to try these @fridakahlo lipsticks. I had been eyeing these and the nail polishes every time I saw there near the front register. I felt like because they weren’t a familiar brand I didn’t think I was up to shelling out $7 for a lipstick– a nonmatte lipstick at that y’all! You see the packaging right– iLove it! 

So yeah like I said these are not matte lipsticks. The formula is sheer but creamy, feels like the likes of a moisturizing lipstick. They give off a semi-gloss finish as well. It  transfer a lot (which you should expect with this type of finish). 

You can hold out for your beauty rewards coupon, a 20-40% off coupon email or just go ahead and pay them $7, you got it stop playing lol.

Check out my swipe…..

Mani Mondays

I’ve realized the error of my ways believe it or not…. my first love of nail polish has been majorly ignored here on my blog (why hasn’t anyone told me)!! I know I should never forget where I’ve come from and from how far lol….

So let me start this thang off right! 

My Monday mani comes from the help of LA Colors Color Last “gel like” polish. They say this polish is supposed to last 10 days (chip resistant) but I have never been able to say that about any polish. This wine-vamp color is one of the many colors I like to rock in the winter (although I follow no beauty rules when it comes to what I choose to rock).

Here’s Wisdom 

You can find these in Walmart or Family Dollar for $1.98.

What’s on your nails?

New Wild n Wild Beauty Products at Walgreens 

Hey again!!

So this just happened…. I unexpectedly came across the new Wet n Wild beauty products in my Walgreens. I say unexpectedly because this Walgreens is close to my job & it used to be so out of date when it came to getting the latest in makeup (but they stepped up their beauty aisle for real)!! These products were said to release for 2107 but who’s complaining huh, not me & don’t you!!

Unfortunately there weren’t any prices on the display but I can tell you the prices for the items I purchased.




Higlighters are $4.99


The diversity for the shades is ridiculous, but the coupon on the display says that all 20 shades will be on the website (HERE).


Illuminating highlighter is $5.99
Soft Matte Lip creams are $4.99

I wonder if nail polishes will debut as a part of the collection? As you know the Megalast Catsuit Matte lipsticks are available on the website as we speak (HERE).

So now that you’ve seen the menu, what are you ordering lol.

New Jordana Sweet Cream Matte shades 

I can’t say enough about finding affordable quality matte liquid lipsticks!! Doesn’t that sound like a oxymoron–matte liquid?! Being a long time reader of mine you already know there’s such a thing.

Speaking of matte liquid, get a eyeful of these new matte liquid lipsticks shades from the Jordana Cosmetics line. I did a review on the first set they released, you can watch my swatch video HERE.

I’ll remind you that Jordana is Milani Cosmetics’s sister company so you’ll find if you get them, that they bear a very “sisterly” formula.

I was put on by @glossguru who spotted the display 


The new shade #’s are: 21,22,23,24,25,26.

Here are the shades I got (21,22,25,26)…


When time permits I’m going to take on the challenge of comparing these to the Amore Matte Lip Crème lipsticks. These retail for $4.99 and can be found in Walgreens & Kmart.

How do you like the looks of these new shades??

Thanks for reading!!
