Persuade Me

I have a love/hate relationship with Colourpop being in my inbox. Every time I tell myself “ok Kash, this is it, no more makeup purchases”Here comes colourpop “hey girrrrrllll, you know you want this collection”  And I did 😩 I can count on one hand how many times I’ve stalked a page for a collection…

Twenty about Me….

First off, let me go on record that this was hard. I tried to make the questions non-hair/makeup related considering that’s all I normally talk about. Hopefully this post will help you guys get to know me.  1. How old are you? This year I celebrated my 37th birthday.  2. Where I was born? Funfact:…

Product overload 

Sooooooo, I gave in and straightened my hair. I usually wait until November/December but I was legit tired of looking at that same bun on top of my head. So after my dry detangle, deep condition and oil rinse, I wrapped my hair with a tshirt and hopped out the shower. I applied my usual leave…

Oil Rinsing (alternative  L.O.C. method)

This past Sunday I did my normal cowash routine remembering to include finger detangling with coconut oil. (Insert Gold star) I had recently read up on an oil rinsing technique.  This is where you apply an oil either before or after your conditioner/ masque then rinsing with cool water.  The first thing that popped into my…

3C Finger Detangling 

I always find myself in front of the tv every Sunday stuck between marathons of Law & Order and ID on HD. Trying to not let my Sunday go to waste, I decided to detangle my hair. Fun Fact: this was my first time finger detangling my hair. Fact #2, I only did it because…

Activated Teeth Whitener

Just recently I’ve noticed at new trend of using charcoal and charcoal capsules for all types of beauty uses. Pore masks, teeth whitening and body detoxing. I may have been ahead of the curve because I’ve been using activated charcoal as a teeth whitener for a couple of years now.  Activated charcoal promotes healthy oral hygiene…

Maybelline Bolds 

Earlier this month I went on a late night Walmart run with my baby sister. While wondering down the makeup aisle looking for lashes and eyebrow gel, I saw a new lipstick from a familiar cosmetic line. Now I know I didn’t need a new lipstick. Especially considering the fact I was at MAC earlier…

Colourpop Haul

Earlier this month,  I took full advantage of Colourpops free lipgloss sale. By spending 30.oo or more I received 2 free mini-glosses. I was out of town for a week doing makeup training so I’m just now getting my hands on these beauties. My husband was nice enough to do a round trip to check…

Nicka K Velvet pt.2 

Ok so I said I was going back and guess what….I did! I completed my collection with the remaining four colors of the Nicka K Velvet matte collection.  I have now clue how or why I left these colors in the store. 🙄 Once again, these lip colors apply smoothly like a gloss but dry…

What is that? Velvet? 

So I walked into my favorite local BBS for a new nose ring, I walked out with 4 new lipsticks. 😬 I did buy two nose rings as well. I always check out whatever new colors, brands they have. I saw that Nicka K, one of my favorite BBS brands, had a new lipstick formula so…

Prime(r) Time

What’s worse than rising temperatures?  Of course, your makeup sliding off mid-day.  Texas heat is the worst and combine that with Houston humidity…that’s a recipe for a makeup disaster.   After you wash and moisturize your face, before you apply your foundation, it’s important to apply a primer. Yes even in the summertime, even with oily…

Dark Brown Beauties 

  Everything old is new again…..bits and pieces of the 90s are coming back and I am here for it  Take note: before there were 30.oo lip kits, stars such as Mary J Blige, Whitney Houston, even supermodels Iman and Cindy Crawford all wore brown lipstick.    Brown lipstick can transform any look from simple…
