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 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.
Have you found your vampy fall lip color yet? Mom and I just bought our new lip shades for the fall. Both of our shades are a deep, dark red. My shade is glossy and mom’s shade has some glitter in it. You don’t have to have some dark, matte shade. These colors can be glossy or glittery to suit your mood or taste. I love changing my makeup look with each season. It makes your beauty routine so much fun. Take a gander at NikkieTutorials’ vampy fall lip color tutorial to get a beautiful new fall look.
Over the weekend, I did something I never thought I would ever do. I have always dreamed of shooting a fashion film, but I never had the opportunity to do so. One of my friends asked me to shoot her styling videos for her. She is going by Lexis-Style, so be sure to check her out. I love the outfits she wears to school everyday. She really lets her personality shine through her outfits. Follow her here. I have to thank her for this experience because it was fun and challenging. Moving from location to location. Shooting guerrilla style in the streets. I loved it! I can’t wait to do it again. Photo from here. View the short and long versions below. (more…)
I was sent a concealer palette Rosewholesale.com and asked to review their website. The website has men and women’s clothes, a few plus size items, bags, shoes, and other accessories. The thing that I like the most about the Rosewholesale.com are the beauty products. I love websites with low priced beauty products. The whole website is super affordable, but I love that the beauty products are so affordable because I can buy tons of eyeshadow and concealer palettes, makeup tools, and more for less!
I recently bought two tubes of the Maybelline Color Elxir lip glosses, and I really love them! The last time I tried a Maybelline product, the Fit Me Foundation sticks broke me out. You might recall my not so good review, but Maybelline customer service rectified the situation. Contact them whenever you have a problem with a product. They seriously are the best!
Jessica Londongifted me with this very warm and spacious coat from their holiday collection, and I love my Wool-Blend Pea Coat! It runs true to size. The reviews on Jessicalondon.com all said it was very spacious, so you didn’t need to size up. As someone with big arms, I can tell you that this is absolutely true. Please don’t go a size up. I bought the coat in my regular size and still had room for my sweatshirt!
Hello everyone! I wanted to review theBH Cosmetics Take Me to Brazil palette for some time now. I was finally able to order it a few weeks ago when BH Cosmetics was having a little sale. This eyeshadow palette is pretty cheap because it only costs $9.95 regularly. You get 30 eyeshadows for $9.95. Not bad.
I love the colors and think they look great on me. I am wearing them in the video. If I were you, I would use some kind of light eyeshadow base/primer or the white eyeshadow that comes with the palette underneath the regular shadow. I didn’t do that, and I think the shadows would have been even brighter with a lighter base. Get the eyeshadow at BH Cosmetics.
Don’t forget to join my team of stylists or get styled by me at Keaton Row.
I went to the mall and did the Sephora Color IQ thing and ended up buying the uber expensive Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Foundation. It really does make my skin look smooth, but it also left it looking ashy since it has a really matte finish. I also think the Color IQ machine scanner thingy matched me wrong. Watch my video to hear about the rest of my experience with the Sephora Color IQ.
This is my final review for the Brazilian Loose Wave Virgin 16 inch hair from Fabulace Hair. I love this hair so much. It is so great! I hope you all purchase some hair from this company. Flexirods are my friend. They wave this hair even more than it already is. I get so many compliments on it everyday. This hair really is the best. Now I see why people go crazy for virgin hair.
I love this copper and red colored makeup tutorial from NikkiTutorials on YouTube. This is the perfect look for a holiday party. I can’t think of a more beautiful look to wear with a little black dress. I feel like this look is so shiny on its own that maybe the outfit could be toned down or understated, non? Oui! Anywho. How do you feel about this tutorial? I want to try it right now!
Looking for tights for the winter? Well look no more because I found them. I have been loving Nordstrom tights for two years now. They truly are the best! Nordstrom has some of the sturdiest, best fitting, stylish plus size tights around. They fit me very well. As a matter of fact, they are one of the only brands that fits me perfectly. They last forever if you treat them right, and they don’t bunch around my ankles or roll down all the way past my butt when I try to move around or get in and out of cars and whatnot. Seriously. You have to try these tights. I wear the Light Support and the Control Top.
FCC: I paid for these tights myself. This is an honest review.

Hey guys! Here is a quick weekend beauty haul video of what I bought at the Sephora VIB Holiday Shopping Event! I had so much fun shopping today. Every place I went I had a coupon. I even saved $100 today in Ulta buying Christmas presents!
Don’t you just love how cut creases look on the eye? I love cut creases, but I am not any good at them. This video from Little Kiva makes it seem a little easier to do. I am going to be watching this a few times until I can finally get the eyeshadow right.
I can’t believe this! Two things I love dearly, the Backstreet Boys and Old Navy Rockstar jeans, have come together for this cute commercial. It is great to see them all singing “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” together again since Kevin rejoined the group. Plus I LURVE Old Navy Rockstar jeans. I own more than a handful of them because the price is always right and they come in different colors. I have a yellow pair, a brown pair, a blue and a red pair, and several denim shades. I also love the act that they truly fit my size 18 frame very well.
I found this awesome hot roller tutorial from Fabulasity Is Me on Youtube last night. The thing about hot rollers is they work better with long hair. If you have medium, shoulder length hair they may work for you if you use the smaller rollers. I see the hot roller sets in Walmart every time I go in there, but I bypass them. I feel more comfortable using my curling rods, curling irons, and flat irons. I had a hot roller set way back in middle or high school. I kept burning my fingers on the rollers. I think the hot rollers are a little more user friendly nowadays, so I may consider buying a set especially since this tutorial looks so easy and the method is super fast.
