Beauty Bit- Unboxing The Fall 2015 Walmart Beauty Box

Walmart Beauty Box

As usual, I have purchased a new Walmart Beauty Box, and so I decided to unbox it for you. You can get these boxes for about $20 a year. You get four Walmart Beauty Boxes for each season and you only pay $5 for shipping and handling. I actually like some of the products that were used since I had used some of them before. I also like how I received a ton of coupons to save money when I go shopping. Yippee!!!

Beauty Bit- Body Merry Product Review

body merry
Hey everybody! I have a new product review for you. Body Merry sent me three free products to try via I was excited to try them because they worked on beauty issues that I have been dealing with, and I had never heard of Body Merry before whose name slightly sounded like Bloody Mary in my head so I was like yea I will try these products. Body Merry has a bunch of products on Amazon and offer Prime shipping!I really wish I could have done a video review for you all. I had house guests this weekend, so that wouldn’t have happened.

Beauty Bit- Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme Where Are You???

milani amore matte lip creme

Qui êtes vous Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme? I have been looking for the new matte liquid lipsticks everywhere. There was a crazy sale on them last week, and all of the CVS’s sold out of them. It didn’t matter because a ton of other stores online and otherwise have sold out of them. They are retailed at $8.99. I think that is very affordable for this kind of drugstore beauty product. I have tried the new Milani Matte Lipsticks before. They are great. That and the fact that the lip creme’s have been getting rave reviews are the reasons why I need to find these things!!!

I heard on a Facebook beauty group for black women that the Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme formula is a little less harsh on the lip than most matte lip products. Most matte lip products dry your lip out like the Mohave Desert. So far, the women that have been able to buy them have been having a ball. I have only heard of one woman in the Facebook group that doesn’t like this product. I think she didn’t like it because she got the wrong color. Even with that one bad review, I still can’t wait to try the Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme. Have you ever been so hyped up for a product that you just couldn’t take it? Maybe this is why I can’t find these? Nope! The lie detector determined that that was a lie. I need these Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme liquid lipsticks in my life. Like right now. I am super obsessed.If you see these in the store, let a sistah know because I have been out on the lookout…ok?!? Help me out before I lose my damn mind over some matte lip creme. SMH!!!! I am doing way too much for beauty.

Cool Beauty Products From The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
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. Nordstrom is one of those cool spots for beauty products. They have expensive, luxury brands, and other not so well know brands. I always find something interesting in their beauty section. 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 Remember that Nordstrom has free shipping and free returns online.

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.

natural hair
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.

BH Cosmetics HaulFTC: I paid for these products from BH Cosmetics myself. This is an honest review.

Hello everyone.

It has been a long, long time since I really blogged. I am now done with school. You can see some of the images from my final portfolio show on Instagram @thefatandskinny. I am going to try and blog more regularly now. My first blog post back will be this quick BH Cosmetics haul. I bought some amazing items from BH Cosmetics and I just wanted to let you know about them. All three items ( BH Floral Blush Duo in Tulip, the Contour & Blush Palette 2, and the 10 pc Sculpt and Blend Brush Set) got amazing reviews. See my haul video below.

Beauty Bit- The Red Lip Ruled The 2015 Oscars

Margot Robbie
The red lip ruled the 2015 Oscars. From Margot Robbie to Emma Stone- who I was told is wearing Revlon of course- red lips were everywhere. Now a few ladies did opt for the neutral, natural lip, but their beauty looks didn’t stand out to me. It was the Oscars for crying out loud! If there ever were a time to go red, last night was it. Below you will find a bunch of red lip products to choose from with various price points. I picked out some lip glosses, lip sticks, and more because I know everyone doesn’t automatically want a lipstick. Photo from here.


Two British Beauty Brands Rocking My Socks #frostyvoxbox

British Beauty Brands
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Late last year I received the #frostyvoxbox from Influenster. In that box, I received a few things from two British beauty brands that have a few products that I love. The first products I saw were from Rimmel London. I love Rimmel London products, and I wish they would expand their line to include more foundations and powders for women of color. The products I got were the Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover ($7.49) and the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner ($4.49). The eye makeup remover is great, but the eyeliner is even better. I actually have been using this eyeliner for over a year now. It is so good for my oily eyelids. It dries fast, has full on color, and doesn’t attach itself to my oily upper eyelid. I love to buy these in bulk even though they last me a long time. Also check out the Rimmel Stay Matte powder and lipsticks. They were in my box, but those products are some good.

How to Transition to Natural Hair Week- The Dreaded Big Chop!

transition to natural hair
This week I am going to be featuring a series of YouTube videos that helped my transition to natural hair. My natural hair journey wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be, and I really think that was because of the many YouTube videos that I watched every night. I have been natural for two years now, and I finally big chopped about one year and change into my journey. I know for some that may seem like an eternity when you are used to having relaxed hair. I hope this video series helps on your own natural hair journey.


Beauty Bit- Unboxing My Winter 2014 Walmart Beauty Box

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

I love the items I received in my Winter 2014 Walmart Beauty Box. This box is one of the cheapest beauty boxes around because you only get charged $5 for shipping and handling four times a year. So four boxes are $20! Most beauty boxes will cost you $20 or more for one box. I could use or enjoy most of the items. I do have a problem with some of the samples. I can’t really use them because they are for lighter skin tones. :( Oh well. check out my unboxing video, and let me know what you think in the comments.
