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.
