CLARRIA COSMETICS, YOU NEED TO TRY THIS!

IMG_4305

A few weeks ago I got contacted by a new cosmetics company called Clarria Cosmetics and I was thrilled and excited beyond belief. I love makeup and if you give me makeup to try I am all over it. They were also offering a sponsorship/partnership and that made the email more interesting to me. They also offered to send me samples of their foundation so I could try it out. The box above was delivered and I was in love with the presentation of their product. The lettering and the black box were beautiful but more than that they were generous with their samples and I couldn’t wait to try and find my shade out of the 7 shades that they sent me. The little foundation vials that the product was packaged in were so adorable that I almost didn’t want to disturb them.

As I took each and every one out of the box, the hard part was trying to find my shade but I think that it wasn’t that hard once I saw that some were more darker or lighter than others. After much trial and error I found my shade and it was shade Lucky 005 although I also fell in love with Lucky 006 as it looked amazingly pretty with the completion of my blush and lipstick on so its a toss up between these two. Will have to check on the 006 shade with the help of natural light and see how it really looks on me but I love both shades either way. Check out the pics below of my before and after makeup transformation….

BLACK: FOREVER IN OUR CLOSETS AND IN OUR MINDS

00250fullscreen

One color that I try very hard to steer away from is the color black. I was told as a teen that black is the perfect color to hide physical imperfections like the almighty bulge, stomach pouch or thunder thighs as we ladies call it. To me that sounded horrific as my body was just developing into womanhood and I didn’t even see the logic of what these women were even talking about.

From then on, I developed an aversion to the color and I’ve never thought I even look good in it. Although I’ve always questioned myself on why it is that men always look amazing in black…thats mind boggling to me – seriously! When I shop I try to overlook the black colors on the rack just because I’ve never wanted to hide my body. If anything I would love to improve and embrace it. Hey, its the only one I have and I have to love it for what it is…unique!

On the other hand, there are those that worship the color for whatever reasons they have. Although I must say some things look better in black (Ex..menswear) so there are times that you must have it in your closet. Don’t get me wrong its a beautiful color in some clothing items but in others its just not the case. But every one is different so I will leave it at that for now!

Oh and I’m not shaming anyone for loving black…it is what it is and if you love it – so be it! Whose to tell you otherwise…take a look at a few fashionable items in black. You tell me what you think…

BALMAIN X H&M LOOKBOOK…YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS!

04-balmain-h-and-m

Its about time…I heard about this collection via close friends of mine who were gawking over it online and I thought …no way is Balmain the brand of chicness collaborating with H&M. I mean come on how unusual is that right?

Well its becoming the norm in the fashion scene. Big designers are now hooking up with corporate brands in order to cater to the younger fashionistas who normally wouldn’t shop in the major designer stores. I don’t know if this would be great for fashion lovers everywhere but I will take it and strut down my chic runway happily.

The name Balmain speaks so much to me. Its classy, sexy, chic and its one brand that will never get old with time. I think Balmain is starting to come of age with the new generations of future fashionistas. Now they can wear a piece of the Balmain collection.

The collection itself is embellished with silk, embroidery, and even beading. This collection looks very sexy and chic to me so let me show you what Balmain has designed for us fashionistas. Hope you like it!

LOVE IT OR HATE IT – PINK HAS ARRIVED AGAIN AND ITS HERE TO STAY!

1435514086561

I can’t deny that the color pink is one of my favorite colors. There are so many variations of it that you are bound to find a color that will lure you in. I love all shades of pink but it has to look right whether its in fashion, makeup or hair color. If its not the right shade or the items don’t look right in this color …I pass!

Years ago, this color was considered a highly feminine color due to its association with girls in general. Pink is a cool, calm, vibrant and at times a sexy color depending on how its presented and also how your eyes visualize it. In some people this color evokes emotions of happiness, calmness, serenity and even promotes senses of peace and tranquility. Its a happy, sexy, trendy color that if played out right screams “buy me, please!” Today its saturated the market so much that its everywhere, even men and boys are wearing pink..I’ll get to that in a few!

 I love the color pink but its got to be presented in a way that would make me want to touch, buy, and wear it. If it looks horrid to me I will never even think to take a second look at it. As for men, a man that braves wearing pink to me is sexy. I’ve seen it on male models and boy do they look amazing in this color. I guess its obvious that for me pink is the go-to color  but for others it may be the most repulsive, silly, feminine color they have ever laid their eyes on. I don’t blame you ..to each his own. Its not a color thats for everyone and I highly respect that!

Lets look at a few ways that the color pink is represented in general from the pale pink for men and the bright pink hues for women. I’ll let you be the judge and see if its your most or least favorite color thus far! Check out the pics below…

I’m a huge makeup lover but its not my favorite color in this area. Most colors or shades of pink do not look great on me – I have a few that look amazing but I wish I could wear them in all shades and variations. I tend to pass on some pink shades of makeup because they make my face look washed out. Kudos to you if you can pull it off
