Watch the Shoes Haul HERE:

Every female needs a pair of shoes in her life...ok ok, maybe 2... or 3 or 4... But all for various reasons, of course! From open toe to peep toe, to pointy toe to round toe...heels give a woman that seductive, elegant twist! Oh, and let's not forget about the days where our feet are killing us, and we just want to be comfortable!!---It's not against the law for women to own sneakers, it's actually a great turn on to men! LOL! Versatility is the key to successful fashion! :)

Here are all of the shoes that were purchased in the month of November. I tend to go to a lot of different places with different types of atmospheres/settings, which causes me to get dressed down or dress up. I've learned to be safe than sorry by expanding and converting my taste in shoe style, amongst casual wear & formal wear---for that "just in case" moment. I've learned that I can always dress simple as I want... as long as I have DOPE shoes as a statement piece!

What is Sleek Makeup?
  • Sleek Makeup is a cosmetics line, headquartered out of London, who's main focus is to present fashion-trendy colors, and to provide products that all skin tones could use, especially skin tones who are misrepresented by mainstream cosmetics lines.
  • Sleek Cosmetics is stocked at the local drugstores throughout Europe, and has merged its way to Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, and Kenya.
I ordered 9 items:
True Colour Lipstick- Stiletto $6.00
True Colour Lipstick- Papaya Punch $6.00
Face Contour Kit & Dual Ended Brush $13.00
Curacao I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette $10.50

Blush- Scandalous $6.50
Shipping Cost: $13.50
  • True Colour Lipstick

These lipsticks are classified as "matte", but contains vitamin E, so they still glide on smoothly!! I was extremely happy about the pigmentation of these lipsticks because I have been on a hunt for a nice coral lipstick that is true to it's color, as well as a deep red for the Fall. :)
[Left to Right: Papaya Punch, Stiletto]
  • Curacao I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette
Literally, just looking at the palette before swatching, I knew that I was now #winning!! :)
The colors are sooooo bright and it's pattern gave me hope!! & I was right.

Plastic Film with the name of each eyeshadow!
  •   Sleek Makeup Blush
Great Packaging!

^^Name of Each Blush^^

These blushes are so beautiful. I could not wait to open my package to swatch the heck out of these bad
boys! lol.

The intensity of the blush pigmentation is to die for. When purchasing without being able to physically see an item,  it can be a bit scary; only because you're not sure if the product will show up on skin, like it did on the computer screen. You will always have the doubt that it's not as PIGMENTED as it may look, when you can't swatch the product! Well with Sleep Makeup.. what you SEE is definitely what you GET!

  •  I-Divine Primer Palette

Anytime an eyeshadow is being used, a primer or base should be used to help with creasing, longevity, and enhancement of color.
Collecting different colored primers can be quite costly, if purchased individually, so when I saw this I-Divine Primer Palette, I knew it was a MUST-HAVE.
Amazed by the cost, I made sure to purchase it.

  • Face Contour Kit

I was ecstatic about this Contour Kit, because it came as a set includng the dual ended contouring brush! :) Not to mention that the brush came with a traveling case! 
The Contour Kit came in three different shades: Light, Medium, & Dark
I purchased: Medium

Special Thanks to Michelle, from BeautyAndTheBlog, for her amazing postings about Sleek Makeup; And to the determination and willingness to do months and months of research, I finally decided to place an order with Sleek Makeup! Well.. let alone the fact that it took months for my to figure out that the website offered US shipping, and I was overlooking it the entire time!
Shipping was AMAZING and FAST!! Packaging was superb! I was extremely IMPRESSED! :)

My Overall Thought: My experience with Sleek Makeup was phenomenal! I couldn't have been anymore satisfied! Fast shipping, Great packing, Great products, great service, & a great asset to the beauty community!!

Neutral Eye w/ UD Naked Palette

Neutral can be Chic! :)

There's a lot of women out there that are truly afraid of color when it comes to makeup. While their terrified of trying color, they're sticking to the basic neutral colors within their comfort zone. 
No one said that neutral colors had to be boring... 

For the first time trying the Urban Decay Naked Palette, my motive was to find a look that would look great on anyone, despite the tone of their skin; a look that was within everyone's comfort zone.
I was desperate to find an eye look to suit everyone's standards... as far as pigmentation, longevity, boldness, and chicness.

This is what I came up with. 

Products Used:
NYX skin tone colored primer
UD Naked Palette e/s: Sin, Sidecar, Smog, Naked
Nars Albatross Blush- highlighter
Wet n Wild Gel Liner- Black
Elf Mineralized Infused Mascara

Watermelon Blues Tutorial

With the summer heat taking over, it's actually starting to feel like SUMMER..and now that it's feeling like Summer... We must treat it like SUMMER lol! So its Summer YALL! lol.
What better way to express it being summer, other than having a beautiful summery eye look?
I present... Watermelon Blues :)
