New ish.

Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Holika Holika BB cream and Ruby Kisses Set n' Forget Powder in Rich

For a long time I have been hearing good things about castor oil. I heard that it helps with hair thickening and growth and that all sounds promising to me. I poured some of it into my Africa's best Hair Mayo and the rest I will use not only on my scalp/hair but on my eyebrows and eyelashes.
Regarding the BB cream, I ordered it about 4 weeks ago and It just now arrived. Remind me to never order anything from a Korean seller, it takes way too long. Anyways I plan to wear it underneath my foundation, by itself it is the wrong color. I am looking forward to trying out the Maybelline BB cream and word is that Iman is coming out with BB creams so yay for darker tones for us girls on the darker side.
I received the BB cream and the ruby kisses powder today so I can't tell you how it works, that will have to be in a future update.

UPDATE: So I really love the BB cream and the Set n' forget powder. They actually control the oil on my skin. Two days ago I applied my make up at about 6:30 am and then at the end of the day I wasn't oily at all. The BB cream also does help with skin clearing. A long with this fade cream I am using, the dark spots on my face are starting to clear up. Also the BB cream underneath my foundation just makes my face look flawless. I have never had that look before with makeup. I will repurchase in the future.

Dresses from Ebay

The dresses I purchased early last week have arrived and this is how they look on me. I mentioned how scared I was about how the blue peplum dress would fit but it fits perfectly. I ordered two more dresses from the same seller on ebay and they should be here in a week and a half I am estimating. The seller's name on ebay is queendesign. Check them out because they have really cute stuff.

Green Eyeshadow Look

I think I am getting better at this (Blending eyeshadow). What do you all think? Where should I Improve? Oh I also put on some blue lipstick from what BH cosmetics lip palette I own.

Summer bag from Target

A couple of weeks ago target was having their free summer giveaway bag with samples and I happened to catch it this time. Yesterday I received it in the mail.  In the bag was samples of shampoos/conditioners, sun block, a scrub from Aveeno, a small sample of Revlon's lip butter and some discount coupons. I kinda wish They gave us the full lip butter instead of a tiny sample but I am impressed with everything.

New Orders for the week from Amazon

Holika Holika Pore Clearing Petit BB Cream with Tea Tree Oil and Sebum Control Powder 30ML

I was a bit hesitant to order this at first because I wasn't sure what shade it was but if it comes up being too light it is okay because I only plan to wear it under foundation. It has a lot of attractive features such as the oil controlling and the tea tree oil. I have oily skin and I need something like this. Altogether with shipping it was 10.49, it will probably take me a while to receive this product because the seller is apparently in Korea. I am praying it comes within the next two weeks.

E.l.f. Studio Stipple Brush elf

I needed a brush to apply my foundation, kind of tired of using my fingers. Altogether with shipping it was 7.49

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay & Apple Cider Vinegar (Organic)

So these two products go hand in hand. You are used to mix the ACV with the mask for it to be effective. I was trying to order another Queen Helene mint julep mask because I am all out but I came across the indian healing clay mask and I have read a lot of people rave about how good it is so I decided to give it a try. Apparently it is like the Queen Helene mask but it is much better. My skin has been acting crazy this week,  have broken out all over the left side of my face and I need help.

New Orders

As always I just keep on buying (somebody stop me!). Anyways purchased them from two sellers in China. They were marked shipped and I expect them to arrive in 2-3 weeks. I am so anxious I keep checking the tracking #. With shipping everything came out to 99 dollars. I am kind of scared about how the blue dress will look since I am shapeless but we will see.

 Here are the links if anyone is interested.

Recent Pics of Me

Sidenote: I repurchased Bree again but in 1b/30! I decided to take a risk and get a different color other than just regular black. I don't know if you can see it in the pics but it looks great.
