I love using oils on my skin and hair. When Actually Organic Argan Oil offered me a free bottle to try, I was very excited. Not all argan oil is created equal. This particular brand is very good because it actually made from 100% pure and cold pressed argan oil from Africa. This isn’t the synthetic-kinda mixed with other questionable things type of oil. The owner of the company went to find the purest, best smelling oil. I have been using this oil for a month now. I use it on my cuticles, my hair, the corners of my eyes, my lips, and my elbows. I really have been getting my use out of this oil. I really talk about how I use the oil in the video below. The 4 ounce bottle of Actually Organic Argan Oil is on sale at Amazon for $23.99. I was actually given the 1 ounce bottle. It costs $11.99 and lasts a long time. After all I have been using it for, I still have a great deal of oil left. You really don’t need that much oil for each use. Check out hte video below for more.
Halloween is right around the corner, and I am sure some of y’all still haven’t figured out what you all want to be. I’m not so sure if I know what I want to be either. I don’t even know if I am doing anything special that night. Hmmm… Maybe I will go as a nasty woman? Anyway. Here are five Halloween makeup tutorials that will surely inspire you to trick or treat or just wait for the 50% off candy sales the very next day like I do.
Thanks to BrandBacker and Valentia, I was recently given the chance to try the Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum. I have used and reviewed another Valentia product before and loved it. When I was asked to try this product, I was very excited because I know they have some really good products. The Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum is another keeper.
I just recently received my Fall 2016 Sephora inside JCPenney catalog, and now I can’t wait to show you my fave pre-fall beauty picks from Sephora and some of my fave beauty stores. Fall is one of my favorite seasons, and fall beauty is my favorite type of beauty. I love the dark lips and smoky eyes. I love all those things that make fall beauty great.

Would you like to know how I save with health, beauty, and wellness Groupons? Yes. You. Do. A few months ago I taught you all how to save with Groupon Coupon, now I want you to know about Groupon’s main website. I know a lot of people have heard about and used Groupon, but I was surprised to see how many hadn’t down either of those things. A few days ago, a few of my sorority sisters and I planned a girl’s night out. Some of them used Groupon for the very first time when we bought our wine and paint class. I was shocked.
I received the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask from Brandbacker. This is an honest review.
I was so grateful to receive a full sized sample of the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask. This mask was sooooo good. It smelled so fragrant when I opened the jar up. I couldn’t help myself. I just took another whiff of the mask. Like right now. I sniffed it. It is $25 on Amazon, and is a Prime item.
This mask dried my oily skin up. When I was done with the mask, my skin looked bright, clean, and very clear. It didn’t look anything like the hot greasy mess that walked into the bathroom earlier. The mask is supposed to be used for 15-20 minutes, and all you have to do is use the tiniest amount. I have a feeling that the 4 oz. jar is going to last me a long time.
As you may remember from a few months ago, I am now a paid subscriber for the Beautycon Box. I love these boxes and recently did a video and blog post about my first Beautycon Box– The Bethany Mota themed box. They give you over $100 worth of products and gift cards to awesome stores. This box was curated by YouTube beauty guru and internet phenom Grav3yardGirl.
I found out about the #BeautyConBFF beauty box on Snapchat-follow me at thefatandskinny- and decided to get one to unbox for you! Honestly…let’s be all the way real here. I saw what was in the box and said, “OK BeautyCon! Take my money!!!!” So they did. They took it all, but I can’t even be mad at them. Inside my box are items from Nike, Colourpop, Garnier, Maybelline, and more!
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!!!
Hey everybody! I have a new product review for you. Body Merry sent me three free products to try via Brandbacker.com. 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.
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!!!

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.
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.

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.
Y’all I finally bought the $5 bottle of Lottabody Curl and Style Milk. I now see why everyone was raving about it. This product keeps my hair sooooo soft and manageable. You can use it for twist outs too. That is what I did. I used it on my twists and on my wash and gos.
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.
FTC: I paid for the NYX Cosmetics 3C Conceal Correct Contour Palette myself. This is an honest review.
I recently bought the NYX Cosmetics 3C Conceal Correct Contour Palette from Ulta, and I love it. I can use it for soooo many things. You can too. I have used it for my eyebrows, for contouring my face, and hiding hyperpigmentation. I recommend this product because it really does conceal, correct, and contour.
