Tarte shape tape concealer review

Standard

Concealer, you name them, I feel like I’ve tried them! The only reason I even feel the need to wear makeup is because of these dag blasted dark undereye circles. I’ve had them all my life, so I am them, they are me; so I do what I do best, cover them up! For the longest, I’ve been using different MAC concealers, but I wanted to try something different. With the loss of my dad, I’ve been super duper emotional, never know when tears will fall, so I needed something that didn’t run or smear! I went into Ulta one day and the salesperson recommended Tarte shape tape after I explained that I needed something that lasted through tears. 

  

Girls, this stuff is the truth! It’s super long lasting and tear resistant! It conceals better than anything I’ve tried so far. I didn’t know when I purchased it but it also can be used for contouring. That’s a little above my skills, so I’ll just stick with it for covering up my circles. It was well worth the $24 I spent. 

I would show you a before pic, but I don’t want to scare you 😜

Have you guys tried this product before? What did you think? Also, what’s your concealer recommendation in case I try something else in the future?

Rose hip seed oil: get you some!

Standard

Y’all I may have found the fountain of youth…ok I’m exaggerating but this stuff is just amazeballs! One night I was bored looking around on Facebook and noticed a friend of a friend who had commented on something had mentioned that she had been using rose hip seed oil on her face, she had beautiful skin, so I was curious! I happened to be in Marshall’s Friday and as always, checking out the beauty items. Then I noticed they had the oil there, and for only 7.99! I couldn’t wait to get home to scrub my face and try it! I’ve been using it for about a week now, and omg my skin looks amazeballs! Not that I’ve ever had trouble skin, but I’ve just noticed a difference. I love anything that makes me glow! 

 I use it twice a day. It gives my skin such an awesome glow! If I could find this stuff in a ginormous bottle, I’d buy it and use it all over my body! I apply it after washing my face and then add my moisturizer as usual. This stuff has my skin looking so good, if I didn’t have these raccoon circles under my eyes, I’d go without foundation! 

Friends, especially my fellow brown girls, start a skin care routine and moisturize daily! Yes, black does sometimes crack if not taken care of! 

Have you guys used this stuff before? Or, what’s your fav product right now?

Best legs in the biz

Standard

I work out. I do lots of squats, and other leg exercises in an attempt to get the legs of my dreams! Especially because I love, love, love to wear short shorts in the summer! I have several celeb leg crushes that I think of when I imagine what the perfect set of gams would look like for my body. Ultimately Tina Turner is the golden standard of leg goals! Those legs are insured for millions, so that says a lot! And even in her 70’s, she’s definitely still got it! But, there are some other women with amazeballs legs that just be may be able to give Ms. Tina a run for her money. Here are my top 6 picks for the best legs in the biz! 

In order: Tina Turner, Tamia, Ciara, BeyoncĂ©, J Lo, and Jessica Simpson. Yesterday I caught a little heat when I said that Jess may just edge out Ms. Tina for best legs. No one will ever top Tina, but c’mon, she does have some hefty competition these days! And nobody rocks daisy dukes quite like Jess. 

I don’t know about y’all, but if I woke up and my legs looked like any of these ladies, I wouldn’t be mad at all. Until then, I’ll keep up the leg days at the gym and one day I’ll achieve my leg goals! On another note, to get more squats in during the day, I started doing a set of 20 each time I go to the restroom. I also do calf raises when I’m standing in my cube at work. Hey, a little extra can’t hurt! 

Who would make your top list for best legs??
