What's HOT! and What's NEW!- All about EYES

hEY guys, so seems I need to start doing some promo for this blog, don't even know if anyone still passes it by. lol.

So I did some shopping lately and came upon some awesome beauty finds that I thought I share.

1. CONCEALER: Now I don't know that many black women that use concealers but I am addicted to them! there is no better way to make your eyes POP! than to dab some concealer on it. Finding the right shade is tricky so I was very skeptical when I heard that Naomi Campbell was a big fan of YSL's Touche eclat. (because I thought it was for white people :)

Of course being the Beauty addict I was, I decided to purchase it and try it for myself and guess what?? I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! of course you have to be careful not to USE too much because then you get these patch of whiteness underneath you eyes.

But the unique thing about the Touche eclat is that it bounces off natural light, (don't know how they figured that out) and last all day (well most of it!)
me likes!!

If you think concealer does not do ish, check these pictures out and tell me what you think.


So ever since I "almost" lost my God-given lashes over some poorly done eyelash extension application, I've become uber obsessed with Mascaras!! and I swear by these. What I do is I apply the white part first, let it dry, recoat, let dry then paint over with the black part. The white part is the extending part, adds thickness and length to your lashes. And the coolest thing is that when you wash them off, it looks like little lashes are coming off your lashes, lol, but its all faux of course so no need to worry! Both Mascaras are L'oreal

3) EYELASHES- speaking of lashes, I had a chance to try these and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE them! They come in natural/believeable lengths, easy to apply and don't make you look like a Crazy Clown.

From the talented makeup artist Lola Maja, SacredLashes, are the here!!

HAIR DIVA: Kerry Washington

Over the weekend I watched I think I LOVE my Wife, and could not help but admire Kerry Washington's simple but yet stylish hair througout the movie.

It's easy to love Kerry's style because it is:
1. Do-able
2. Easily managed
3. Chic, and always exciting!


One tip from Marie Claire Magazine regarding Kerry's hair is that, to enhance one's natural Hair Color, try John Frieda Luminous Color Glaze ($9.99) At home.
be sure to Treat hair once a week with a deep conditioner like Paul Mitchell Super Strong Treatment ($15.99) or Nexxus Emergencée ($15).
CHECKOUT the following KERRY looks, from DAY to NIGHT!

Hair today.....MORE tomorrow!!

Hey bloggers wats new?
so I made a giant mistake of doing this stupid long weave dat I could not even maintain for 2wks. I don't even know what possessed me, I simply saw my pack of 22 inch weave and decided to give it a GO.....IN this BLOODY NIGERIAN HEAT!! needless to say, I rarely had my hair down, instead it was always in some POCAHONTAS type braid that irritated my BF...lol

well enough of that ish.....infact..NEVER!! will I do that again, I guess I will just wait till I get to Jand/Yankee to pull that stunt again.

I guess I was channel-ling Li-Lo? someone please remind me am not OYIBO and tht there is a limit to all this extension thing..


am getting my HAIR DID this WEEKEND and ME SOOOOOO EXCITED!!! I love getting my hair did, it's sooooo therauptic, like a CLEANSING or a RENEWAL......ya...maybe it's just me ;)

speakin of new HAIR-DOs.

why is everyone on BLOGsVILLE hating on Xtina Millian's HAIR?? am I the only ONE that likes IT???? I think it's FIERCE!!!! I mean in my creed of HAIR-DOing, one must do a LOOK that's different from his/her Norm every once in a WHILE, right??

Tell me u don't LOVE it? I dunno, I like how RADICAL it is!! I just hope it does not fall out...cuz all that peroxide................. WOW.

speaking of more NEW dos....(sorry I might be late on this one) but..

Call me crzy but I don't like BANGS on Ms.Kardashian, she's too pretty to be covering Half her face.

WHAT do you make of FERGIE's dark side? me....I dunnoo...I actually feel nothing for this look.


Finally!! Katie Holmes has her long locs BACK (at least for a while).

-Cuz I was not feeling that soccer-mom thingy she had going on.

and speaking of Fierceness....

Do I have to give u more reasons why I love EVE.

creed no.7 of one's HAIR-DOing....One must always have FUN with one's HAIR-DO!!!
