Colored Raine Matte Lip Paint Blue Dragon



Coloured Raine  Lip Paint
Blue Dargon 



Blue Dragon lasted for hours while shooting my Youtube videos (keishaG) so comfortable on the lips, I forgot  I was wearing anything. You Know sometimes we go to reapply a lipstick and you feel like you have to take the whole thing off, not with this formula and that's a big plus in my book. 



I do recommend a lip liner,  I didn't use one when I first tried and that was a NO! lol 

MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation (NW40)
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder (Medium Deep)
Jackie Aina Artist Couture La Bronze Diamond Glow Powder  (my eyeshadow)

New Make Up!

Mac Look In A Box
Sultry Diva


I had just got off work in a very dangerous part of NYC, 25th and Broadway right in the middle of the Thursday shopping madness. I remember there's a TJ Maxx / Marshalls / Bed Bath & Beyond a few blocks down so I headed over. I absolutely love Marshalls and TJ Maxx clearance section sometimes you can get some very expensive skin care and makeup for a fraction of the price.

It was about 3:30 on a Thursday so the store's wasn't so bombarded with the after-work crowd. (Lucky me )

I saw a MAC box with a red sticker on it (OMG!) red sticker is clearance girl if you didn't know. The box was half empty #sadface but the makeup gods was on my side that day my friends, I found another box and it's the one you see below Sultry Diva.

New Laura Mercier Setting Powder - Medium Deep


I was one of the lucky ones to receive the new @lauramercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder in medium deep. #NoFlashBack #tlsp Thank you @influenster #influencer #bblogger #youtuber #ipsy #makeup #PowdertoThePeople @sephora





The package came on a Monday, I tried it on a Monday, and I love it on that same Monday... lol...  

I went in with my LA Girl Pro Concealer (Fawn) under my eyes and I set it with  my new LM  medium deep powder and I was very pleased with the results. 

I let the powder sit for a few minutes and then dusted it away to find a beautifully smooth finish. I was so pleased with the results I just went ahead and set my whole face with the LM powder. I was a little (wtf) this color may be a little too dark for me, the color blends in perfectly!

I'm in LOVE!

Last Saturday Was Like...

On Saturday my sistas Shanti & Alana were vending at the F.A.D pop up market in Brooklyn. I wanted to pop in on my way to Photoville 



Jewelry / Stationery Designer / Hand Lettering Artist

@AyeShantiDesigns 



She makes some of my favorite all natural skincare products.

@alifebalanced



One of my favorite things about New York City especially Brooklyn is that you can be walking to one event and stumble across another like I did with the American Music Festival.

Perfect spot for a selfie 


I picked up a Fabric Print journal from Aye Shanti Designs and some of my favorite skin care products from A Life Balance.

GENERATION BEAUTY NYC 2016

Very long lines is the first thing that come to mind when I think of GenBeauty NYC. I heard one girl say " I waited for two hours on the MAKE UP FOR EVER line". Had a chat with a lady who was pregnant and due in 4 days on the Make Up Forever Line #makeupJunkie or nah? Lol! 

More places to sit and water stations was the only thing missing for me at this year's Generation Beauty NYC. Ipsy provided free Wi-Fi. Shout out to them because that was a life saver. The the area of Brooklyn we were in the service was a No. Everything else was awesome, I had a chance to do a lot of networking with some great brands. Getting a chance to meet fellow makeup junkies was my favorite part of the weekend. I hope to be back next year, I can't wait to see what Ipsy has up there sleeves for next year. 





Friday September 16th
Ipsy Creator Day
NYC 
Ipsy Generation Beauty started on Friday for me. I was lucky enough to snag a spot for Creator Day! A Genbeauty first! We was serve breakfast and lunch got to sit in on a few panels featuring a few of Ipsy top creators and Michelle Phan herself taught us a few tricks on how to edit with Final Cut Pro.

Hanging out at the MAKE UP FOREVER wall after picking up my new lipstick.


The lighting at the MAKE UP FOR EVER booth was EVERYTHING!


I linked up with a friend and had a great weekend. I hated that I found out about the free shuttle bus until the ride back to the train that Saturday, I could have saved myself from getting lost that Saturday morning. I took full advantage the Sunday though lol.

I saw so many You Tube "GURUS" like Patrick Star, MammyMUA, Daizy Perkins, Makeupbyshaly and my favorite Kathryn Lights. If you had the patience to stand on those crazy long lines some brands were giving out full size products, while some brands fell short in my opinion. HOURGLASS & CoverFX cosmetics gave out sample size primer. ( I could go to Sephora for that thanks.) BARE MINERALS gave out BAREPRO Performance Wear Powder Foundation. (I got the shade cappuccino)

TOO FACED cosmetics give out Born This Way Concealer. I got color matched by on of the makeup artist and was given the shade Deep. I loved the way the concealer melted into my skin, blended perfectly with the foundation I was wearing. ( NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation shade Macao
