Recent Favorites

Hi MakeupLovers!

Just a quick post to show you guys a few of my summer favorites. Hope you enjoy!


Curls Whipped Cream - Great, lightweight moisturizer. This is perfect for the summer because it is not too heavy but still provides  tons of moisture while aiding in the detangling process. I've been using it non - stop for the past few months.
Curls Unleashed No Boundaries Leave-In Conditioner - with - Curls Unleashed Set It Off Curl Boosting Jelly - I get LIFE from my hair when I use these two products together. Moisture and hold for days! 


Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf - I cannot say enough about the sexiness that it this perfume. It was love at first sniff. I got this little gift set from Sephora for around $35, however this perfume can be pricey if you purchase a full size bottle. 
Clarosonic Mia - I've had this for a year now and I use it every. single. day. Love! After using this for the first time, I was AMAZED by how soft and clean my face felt. It works great with every face wash I've tried so far.


MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural (not pictured) - This can be used to set liquid or cream foundations or by itself to provide light coverage. I usually wear this alone on an everyday basis to provide a slight amount of coverage; it also feels very lightweight and comfortable on the skin and allows the skin to breathe in the summer heat.
Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate in #14- This is the perfect nude lipstick for women of color. Since this is a part of a collaboration between Rimmel and Kate Moss, I'm not sure if it's limited edition however I've already purchased a back up tube...I have a ton of pics while wearing this lipstick.
NYC Sun 2 Sun bronzer- provides great summer bronzy glow. For a quick, everyday face, I apply this to my cheekbones on top of my MAC Mineralized Skin Finish with  a bit of gloss.
MAC Creamsheen in Richer, Lusher - A recent MAC acquisition that gives a great peachy-pink tint to my lips. Perfect for the summer months when I need something light, quick, and easy, which is usually everyday!


Gel manicures (not pictured) - Theee absolute most convenient creation know to man...well, me. No fuss, no chips, no drying time. Love! Love! Love!
iPad - I purchased an iPad for myself as a birthday gift in March and I've been using it nonstop. Initially I was hesitant to purchase such an expensive toy, but I literally take this thing everywhere and it comes in handy when traveling, working, for school etc.
