Vanity Lights

Hubby surprised me with these vanity lights as an Anniversary Gift! We recently celebrated our 21st Wedding Anniversary!
He purchased them from Home Depot.
They are from Hampton Bay. Each has four daylight bulbs which are supposed to last for 7 years.

I am excited about having more light to perfect my makeup application.

What kind of set up do you have for your lights?

Natural Hair Update 2013

So after my 3rd Big Chop, I decided to use protective styling for another year until I was comfy with the length of my natural hair. I went to a Dominican Beauty Salon for a blow out and to do an official length check. My hair is substantially longer in the back.
Check out the texture in the top!

So it's officially collar bone length. YAY!
I need to invest in some Jamaican Black Castor Oil to regain my edges. My wig wearing kind of rubbed them out. Oh well!

Nivea Care Soaps

I was able to purchase these soaps from a store called Five Below. They were $1.25 for each bar.
I just wanted to see if they were any good. I am still reviewing them.

Have you ever seen these soaps?

Wet N Wild Megalast Lipstick Swatches

Wet N Wild Megalast Lipsticks are my second favorite drugstore brand. My lips feel as if I've received a moisturizing treatment after having worn them. They are very affordable. I am not in love with the packaging. It is very cheap. However, I can live with that because of the rich color payoff.

Check out my swatches!

Do you own any of these colors?

Nails Of The Day (NOTD) China Glaze FOR AUDREY and SNOW GLOBE

This was a hastily applied mani. I applied 3 coats of color over China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base and sealed everything with 1 coat of Seche Vite. I opted to layer China Glaze SNOW GLOBE and Sinful Colors OPAL GLITTER for accent nails.
I usually do my manis at about 3am.
I do my nails at my desk because it is the perfect height and I have sufficient light. Seche Vite affords me the opportunity to crawl back into bed and not get sheet prints.
I would love to change my polish at least twice weekly. I have been making more of a concerted effort in changing the colors. It is a challenge because of life's priorities.

How often do you change your polish?

Revlon Lipstick Swatches

Recently I took advantage of 30% discount at to round out my Revlon Lipstick Collection.
I think I am finished! I love their matte formula as it is very pigmented and does not leave my lips dry like some other brands. Revlon lipsticks are definitely my favorite drugstore brand of lipstick! I love their sleek packaging. I love that they are readily available and affordable.

Check out the swatches!
