A Pop Of Mustard

Don't forget to make sure you are also following me on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat as well.

I wanted to share a recent outfit I wore featuring one of my favorite dusters. Having a mustard jacket is a must-have item in your wardrobe. Mustard goes great with some many other colors, but I especially love wearing a mustard jacket for a pop of color.

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Highlighter - Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby

One of the main items that caught my eye from Fenty Beauty were the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters. There are a total of six shades available and I ended up purchasing two of the highlighters. The first shade I will be sharing is Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby.

One of the best things about the Killawatt Freestyle Highlighters is that these are duos! You can use either shade alone or you can layer both shades. These will also work great as eyeshadows.

Description: Light up where you want, when you want. Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter was born to reflect your every mood with its lineup of luminizing solos and duos. With a dose of skin-glorifying color, Killawatt ranges from subtle dayglow to insanely supercharged shades that were designed for all skin tones.

Retail Price: $34.00

Purchase From: Sephora

Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby

This shade is described as a soft champagne sheen/supercharged peachy champagne shimmer finish.

Here are swatches of Mean Money/Hu$tla Baby separate and mixed together.

I love this highlighter, especially the shade Hu$tla Baby. I think this particular highlighter will work on most skin tones, but it may be more suited for medium to tan skin tones. This is a shade I would definitely suggest checking out in person.

Did you purchase any Killawatt Highlighters? Favorite shade(s)?

Bad Habit Aphrodite Eyeshadow Palette

One of my favorite purchases from this year has been this eyeshadow palette from Bad Habit. This brand is known to create "dupes" of popular eyeshadow palettes. The Aphrodite Eyeshadow Palette is a dupe for the Huda Beauty Rose Gold eyeshadow palette. Rose Gold retails for $65 and Aphrodite retails for only $10!

Description: Inspired by the Greek goddess of love and beauty, this eyeshadow palette features 18 shades in a range of deeply saturated mattes, richly textured metallics, and uniquely pressed pearls. Cruelty-free.

Retail Price: $10.00

Purchase From: Hush

Swatches of the Bad Habit Aphrodite Eyeshadow Palette

You can not beat getting 18 highly pigmented eyeshadows for $10! I recommend using a glitter base when applying any eyeshadows with the pressed pearl finish. You can use your finger during application to get the most pigmentation, but I also prefer to use a flat shader brush. This palette is great for any eyeshadow lover and perfect to gift during the upcoming Christmas season.

Bad Habit has recently released a dupe for the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette. I did manage to pick it up via the Hush app on Black Friday. Be sure to check back soon for photos and swatches of the Bad Habit Athena Eyeshadow Palette.

Have you purchased the Aphrodite Palette yet? Thoughts?

Taking The Olay 28 Day Challenge

I love trying and testing out new skin care products, but as a woman of color it can sometimes be hard to find skin care products that target my specific needs. I prefer using products that target uneven skin tone and help achieve a fresh face. I was excited to try the Olay Luminous skin care line and take the Olay 28 Day Challenge. For the past 28 days I've replaced my regular skin care routine with products from the Luminous line. The results I will be sharing are from using 4 products!

Olay Luminous Skin Care:
Olay Luminous Micellar Water: A facial cleanser that removes makeup and impurities in one step, without harsh scrubbing or drying out skin. Retail Price: $9.49

The Olay Luminous Miracle Boost Concentrate: An advanced tone perfecting, ultra-lightweight formula booster, which is designed for use with a Luminous Moisturizer. Retail Price: $24.99-$33.99

The Olay Luminous Light Hydrating Lotion: A lightweight face moisturizer that hydrates from within for luminous skin in two weeks. Retail Price: $26.99

The Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Mask: Achieve bright, pearlescent, and healthy-looking skin every morning. Retail Price: $25.99

Morning and Night Routine:
Step 1: Use the Olay Luminous Micellar Water to cleanse face. It features a mess-free pump that makes it easier to apply the product to a cotton pad or cotton ball. I use this in the morning and at night.
Step 2: Apply the Olay Luminous Miracle Boost Concentrate to my face and neck. This helps to target dark spots and uneven skin tone. It's also very hydrating. I immediately notice a glow to my skin right after application.
Step 3: In the morning, apply the Olay Luminous Light Hydrating Lotion to my face. It helps to hydrate my face and reduce the look of dark spots.
Step 4: At night, I use the Olay Luminous Overnight Mask. This is not a peel-off mask. I apply it all over my face and allow the product to absorb. When I wake up the following day my face looks more glowy and radiant.

As you can see above my skin is a bit dull and I have some discoloration in a few spots.

After 2 weeks of use my skin is looking a bit more even. My skin also feels more hydrated and glowy.

28 days have passed and I now have a fresh, radiant face. Look at that glow!

I took the Olay 28 Day Challenge and I think it is safe to say it was a success! I was not initially expecting to see results right away and was shocked at how much my skin improved within days of using the Olay Luminous line. The dark spots on my face started fading almost immediately. My skin had a radiance and glow to it that I have not seen in a while. I'm happy to say I was able to achieve a fresh face "no makeup" look in 4 easy steps.
