My Fave Budget Beauty Buys

FTC: I paid for these products myself. This is an honest review.

CurlyGirlTravels wanted me to do a budget beauty video, so I did it! I am very passionate about budget beauty, even though I love fancy beauty products…I know there are other products that are just as good-if not great- for less. In this video, I will show you products from Maybelline, NYX, Rimmel, Black Radiance, and Wet n Wild. I use these products everyday and have been using most of them for years. All of these products are $15 or less and most are below $10. You an find these products just about anywhere on the internet or at your local BSS( beauty supply store), drugstore, or big box chain store like Walmart.

I love getting my glove and hat sets together. These are the things that make me smile. Last week we saw Gabifresh model the clothes in ASOS Curve’s fall lookbook. She looked so great! Sooo good!

Beauty Bit- August 2015 Sephora Haul

Hey everyone! Here is a Sephora haul video for you guys. I haven’t done one in a while. I recently went to Sephora in Atlanta when I went to the TCFStyle Expo and bought a bunch of items. I actually bought more than I wanted. I went in that store determined to keep my wallet in check. Sike! I failed. I went in for one item and came out with four. Anyway. Here are the items that I bought, and a link where you can get the items. I am so excited to use these products. If you have any tips or questions leave them below in the comments.

Currently Craving- This 70’s Style Skirt From New Look

new look

Have you been checking out British retailer New Look lately? I bought a few things from their Inspire line a few years ago, and then forgot about them. I don’t know why. They have cute plus size clothes at very affordable prices and wide width shoes. After listening to the panelists at The Curvy Fashionista Style Expo, I decided to hop back on the site. I am still loving their clothes, shoes, and prices. One of them things that I found was this uber cute, uber now suedette skater skirt. 70s boho chic is in right now, and this skirt embodies that look without going full boho. Sidenote: I am a fan of the boho look, but in moderation. This skirt is perfect to wear now, and it is super perfect to wear later with some tights and boots or chunky platform heels during the fall. The price is 19 British pounds which should be about 32 Us Dollars. You can’t beat that!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going on, but it ends soon. Don’t miss out on this really awesome sale. I found a few beauty products that I am either interested in or need to re-up on.

I have bought some perfumes from there. I also like their large supply of MAC and Kiehl’s products. I love me some Kiehl’s If you haven’t checked them out, go to Nordstrom or Nordstrom.com.

My Faves From Charlotte Russe Plus!

charlotte russe plus
Charlotte Russe Plus came out a few months ago. I looked at the clothes, thought they were cute, and then forgot about them because life got hectic and what not. Now I am back. I saw a skirt on Garner Style’s Facebook page and thought I better take another look at this line. Charlotte Russe’s plus size section is really cute. I really love some of the basics and jumpsuits that they have on the site. I haven’t seen this collection in stores yet. If you have, let me know what you think about it below.

Beauty Bit-OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum For Anti-Aging

 

FTC: I was given this bottle of OZ Naturals Hyaluronics Acid Moisturizing Serum by Brandbacker.com. This is an honest review.

You guys have to get this. It is a pretty smooth serum that has some great anti-aging properties. The ingredients are great too. No alcohols, sulfates, or parabens. It is $15.79 on Amazon, and they have prime shipping. I have been using this on my hands, and the skin definitely looks brighter. I am going to continue to use it. I put it on my face and hands before I moisturize, but after I use toner. I received this awesome product from Brandbacker.com.

one one threePlus size clothing line One One Three is back and it is bangin’!!!I don’t know if you remember One One Three, but I blogged about them here a few years ago. I have have always loved their clothes and style. I think they are edgy and fun. Tres cool y’all! You should check out their collection for the summer. The line features pants, tops, outerwear, and even swimsuits in that hot neon tropical Miami style that is super popular right now! The pieces are moderately priced and are UK sized 18-26. I think that should be a US 14-22. Photos from One One Three.

Beauty Bit- Unboxing My Summer 2015 Walmart Beauty Box

Walmart Beauty Box

FTC: I paid for the Walmart Beauty Box myself. This is an honest review.

I just got my Walmart Beauty Box in the mail.  As always, the boxes are “free”, but you do have to pay $5 for each box. That adds up to $20 a year since you get a box four times a year with each new season. This box was a little more exciting than my last one. There are better items in the box this time. I think I am going to actually use most of them. Yay!! You can find out more about the Walmart Beauty Box here.

I received these Schwarzkopf Ultime products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes a few weeks ago. I shot the unboxing video, but I didn’t get to post it. You can find these products exclusively at your local Walmart. Supermodel Claudia Schiffer helped create the line. I was worried that these products wouldn’t work on my natural African-American textured hair, but at least one of them did.

Plus Size Fashion: Forever 21 Belted Dress

FTC: I received this dress courtesy of Forever 21. This is an honest review.

Hey everyone! I received a very pretty, very cool dress from Forever 21. I am saying cool because it is the kind of dress that you can beat the heat in. I don’t think this dress is still on sale on the website, but they have some other equally as cute short, belted dresses in their plus size section. I am wearing a 3x. I normally wear an 18/20 or 3x. I can say that is does fit me very well, and it has an elastic waist. I think this dress was under $30.

Here are a few more options:
Option 1
Option 2

Plus Size Fashion: Harper and Liv Show and Tell

Thanks Harper + Liv for the awesome Items! Harper + Liv is that new plus size line that TFAS wrote about a few weeks ago. They sent me some items to wear, and I love my pants and duster. I was going to do one of my plus size fashion films, but the heat was like sike!. I had everything planned to go to this parking garage and do something cute, but it is toooo hot. Today it was 103 but supposedly it feels like 106. I can’t. Anyway. I enjoyed my clothes. I think I might size up on the pants next time so they can be a little more baggy. They fit well, but I like baggier clothes.
