First Impression | NEW Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder

I’m sure many of you are familiar with Maybelline’s Fit Me collection, it’s one of the best collections that you can find in the drugstore for under $10. One of the reasons why this line is so popular is because you’re getting great quality makeup that comes in a wide range of colors, and it’s also very affordable. Recently, the Fit Me foundation line was extended by adding 18 new shades of foundation which means the line now has 32 shades. They range from the lightest shade Porcelain 102 to Java 375 the darkest shade. The Fit Me line currently consists of the Dewy/Matte + Poreless foundations, concealer, pressed powder, blush and shine free foundation stick. The newest addition to that line is the Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder!

After watching a YouTube video reviewing the loose powder, I went directly to the Maybelline section of my local Walmart to hunt down the newest item. The loose setting power comes in eight different shades starting at Fair and ending at Dark. I purchased the color Deep (the second darkest) for only $5.94! The Fit Me Loose Finishing powder is described as a mineral-based formula that will help control shine and smooth skins texture with a hint of color. You can currently find this in-stores and online at Walmart, Ulta and Maybelline’s website.

 

The products I used when testing this out were:

Maybelline Baby Skin Primer

Maybelline Matte + Poreless foundation in Coconut 355

Ruby Kisses Pure Mineral concealer in Golden Honey mixed with the Marc Jacobs Coconut Dew Drops Highligther

& Wet n Wild Megaglo highlighting powder in Lilac to Reality

Final thoughts: I definitely loved the finished product after applying this finishing powder to my full face. It feels very light on, and kept my face from getting oily which I occasionally experience when using the Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation.  I also liked the fact that the powder didn’t alter the color of my already applied makeup. I applied my makeup at 5:30 and didn’t take it off until 12, after the NBA Finals Game 3 (GO CAVS!). During those hours I never needed a retouch and that is what really won me over.

I won’t recommend this product because I would like to try it with a different combination of items before I give it my stamp of approval but I’m not saying that you shouldn’t buy it either (like that helps LOL). If you do try it, let me know what you used it with and your thoughts!

Is This A MAC Dazzleglass Dupe?

I think yes.

During my sophomore year of highschool I discovered the cosmetic company outlet thanks to Youtube. I heard that they sold discontinued and limited edition makeup from MAC Cosmetics and other high end brands. I obviously had to see if for myself, so I did for my 16th birthday. After that trip I couldn’t deny myself the greatness that is the CCO (cosmetic company outlet).

On my third trip to the CCO I found the most amazing sparkly all around gorgeous lip gloss called Funtabulous – A mix of fun and fabulous – basically myself in a lip gloss. It must have called to others as well because I grabbed the last one in stock. This soon became my everyday lip gloss which I used to the end. I never thought that I would find another lip gloss like it until I discovered the Black Radiance Brilliant Effects lip gloss in the shade Date Night!

Y’all, the BR lip gloss cost under $4! Four dollars.. this is literally one of the best lip products in the drugstore!

Date night is on the left and Funtabulous is on the right. They look nearly identical, right? Funtab. is a bit more pink but you can’t tell unless you’re looking super close.

I’m pretty sure that I talk about these lip glosses a little too often, I mean they’re pretty darn gorgeous, and I have mentioned them in two blog post – BOMB products from Black Radiance and the best makeup for back to school under $20. I also own two other shades of the Brilliant Effects lip glosses in Lovesick and Starstruck which I receive sooo many compliments on.

To find these gorgeous glosses you can find them in the Black Radiance stand in Walmart (online too!) and on Black Radiances website!

My Favorite Things from 2016

Throughout the year of 2016 these things have been a blessing to my life. Without them I wouldn’t be able to continue life in an orderly fashion. Because they are obviously so amazing and they have stood the test of time they deserved to be praised and shared with the world (or whoever is reading this). 

                               The honorees

TRESemme Naturals Shampoo | Hands down this is my favorite shampoo. It has been here through thick and thin, transitioning to natural, and so forth. Unfortunately it couldn’t make it to the end of time because it has been discontinued *weeps*

Burberry Brit Perfume

Black Radiance Perfect Color Foundation | After sharing my Bomb Products from Black Radiance post on twitter I was informed that I hadn’t tried one of their best products, the perfect color foundation. So obviously I had to go purchase it a few days later with the intention that I would write a first impression/review for my blog. Well that never happened but what did happen was magical. I wore this foundation for about a week straight just to test it out then that week turned into each time I did wear makeup and now I’m almost finished with my first bottle.

This foundation is so bomb but sadly it doesn’t have a wide color range, which is a shame because so many women of color would love this if they could wear it!

Avon Ideal Flawless Translucent Powder

Rogue Love by Rihanna | I get complimented every single time I wear this perfume because it smells so absolutely amaaazzzing.

Amazon Fire Stick | Stop paying for Netflix, get hip and get yourself a fire stick. You can “unlock” it and watch as many things as your heart desires!

The Krazy Coupon Lady | App and website | KCL gives you everything you need when couponing! They tell you how much each item is worth, which coupons and rebates to use, when to use these coupons in-store/online AND what your total should be if you use their resources. They provide weekly store round ups and they also do posts highlighting the best deals in each store. These things make couponing so much easier for myself and others. Check out their website here or download the app!

Music | Because I love the original and remixed versions by Kaytranda of Be Your Girl by Teedra Moses and If by Janet Jackson I had to post them both!

Friday’s Finds at Walmart

Because I am writing this post on Thanksgiving I would like to say that I am thankful for three things. Warning, these three things may sound shallow but it is what it is LOL!

I am thankful for:

  • My friend posting about these chokers from Walmart on Snapchat
  • for Walmart having these bomb chokers at such an amazing price point
  • for my local Walmart for actually having these in stock

I probably wouldn’t have remembered to check the jewelry section of my local Walmart if my mother hadn’t asked me to purchase a few Patti Pies for our Thanksgiving feast. Honestly I was shocked to see them sitting in the jewelry section because it is rare for me to find cool items in-store after seeing them online or on social media, so I grabbed two of the shiniest ones and headed to check out. There were #NoRegrets especially since they were $5 each.

So here I am to share the “wealth” and a few pictures of my new shiny chokers from wally world.

Details:

They’re also great because they come with extra links to hook your choker. You won’t have to worry about them fitting too tightly because there are so many link options!
