Face Of The Day: Burnt Copper.

If you follow me on Instagram then you know I have been loving ColourPop Cosmetics a lot lately. I was so anxious to use a new eyeshadow I recently ordered from them called Game Face. I own quite a few coppery eyeshadows and this is by far the most gorgeous one I own! ColourPop describes this as an "intense penny copper with a liquid like ultra-metallic finish" and that description is 100% accurate.

Sassy Secret Review #2.

I recently received another unit from Sassy Secret. I have posted about Sassy Secret before, so be sure to click here to view that post. I think this is probably one of top favorite units I've owned so far. This hair texture looks exactly like my hair when I blow dry it "straight." I love how natural it looks!

The unit that I am wearing is Imani.

Product Code: 3033
Hair Color: 1B
Hair Texture: Same As Picture
Hair Length: 22 Inches
Lace Color: Medium Brown
Cap Size: Medium
Cap Construction: Cap-9D
Hair Density: Medium (120%)

Retail Price: $379.00


My Overall Thoughts: I absolutely love this hair! I've worn it in its natural state since I've received it. It's very natural and very full. This is definitely the most thickest unit I have ever own. I have experienced minimal shedding and tangling with this hair.

The lace of this wig is swiss lace. I find this lace to be extremely natural looking. It blends in perfectly with my scalp, which you can see in the photos below. The cap construction is suppose to be Cap-9D, which is a glueless wig.

I noticed the cap within my unit had a different construction than Cap-9D though. The combs were not located at the temples, but instead were located at the back near the adjustable straps. To fix this minor issue I decided to sew in two combs at the temple. You can visit here for descriptions of each cap construction available.



I'm looking forward to straightening this hair and seeing the results next!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream Swatches.

I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year! This is going to be my first post for 2015 and it's all about the latest shades of the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. I have posted about these before and you can view that post here.

Description: Neither lipstick nor lip gloss, this matte lip cream is a new kind of lip color that goes on silky smooth and sets to a matte finish. Soft Matte Lip Cream is surprisingly durable and, unlike some matte lipstick formulas, also moisturizing.

Retail Price: $6.00


Be sure to watch the video for my quick thoughts and live swatches of each shade!

Shades: Buenos Aires, Zurich, Prague, Cannes, Copenhagen, Transylvania, & Morocco.

NYX Cosmetics makes some of my favorite lip products and I am a huge fan of these. I feel like the formula can be a hit or a miss though. With these particular shades I found that Buenos Aires and Transylvania applied a lot more streakier than the other shades. I personally prefer to pair these with a lip liner to bring out the color a bit more.
