Bad Bish- Solange at the Cannes Film Festival

Solange at the Cannes Film Festival

Did you all catch the pictures of Solange at the Cannes Film Festival this week? She looked gorgeous in a nude colored Stephane Rolland dress with a nude bodysuit underneath and nude strappy heels. Solange’s dress billowed and blowed around her like she was a goddess in the clouds as she walked the red carpet and floated up the stairs for the Opening Gala and premier of The Great Gatsby. Apparently it was raining during the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, but Solange kept her cool at the festival by rocking her natural afro. Doesn’t she look gorgeous? Of all the celebrity photos I’ve seen this week, the most fabulous had to be Solange at the Cannes Film Festival. Photo from the Fashion Citizen Tumblr.

Beauty Bit- Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick vs. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream

Hey guys! I took some time off to do personal stuff last week, but I am back to bring you the battle of the matte lipsticks. I bought these lipsticks myself. The Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick was less than $10, but the pack of three NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream was $12 at Urban Outfitters. The opponents , Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick vs. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, fought really hard. Unfortunately I am not a fan of these lipsticks/lip creams. I was really intrigued by the colors and thought they would look great on, but the formula for both products is horrible, very drying, and peels like no other.
