WALMART BEAUTY

Beauty boxes has been my go to for trying new beauty products. I honestly haven’t been buying any new beauty products the way that I used to. I’ve been subscribed to a few beauty boxes like Birch box, Cocotique, Ipsy as well as Walmart. Now out of all of the beauty boxes I just named, Walmart is the only one that doesn’t send you a box every month. They deliver you one box each season, so that’s 4 times a year. Also out of all the boxes I just named Walmart is the most inexpensive subscription at only $5.


I like beauty boxes a lot. I’ve also ended up with so much stuff that I don’t use. So I decided to take a break from them until I use up the many samples I already have. However, if you’re the type that would like to experience the beauty box subscriptions I suggest that you do your research to find out what type of subscription you’re interested in regarding price and product offers. Sign up wait receive and voila your products have arrived. Plus you’re able to personalize your beauty box profile making sure that your samples are packaged with you in mind. I love that part!

 So as you can see not bad for just $5 each. This is the only box I’m still receiving. 

Are you currently receiving any monthly box subscriptions? If so, what company and why?

I hope this week has been good to you. Happy Thursday!πŸ’«

PANTENE PRO-V

If you follow my blog then you know that I’m a fan of beauty boxes. For those of you who is unfamiliar with what a beauty box is. They are boxes of beauty samples or full size products that you can subscribe to and receive monthly. The will be sent straight to your door. Or should I say mailbox.Β 

So this week I decided to try out a sample product I received in my new Walmart beauty box. It’s a shampoo and conditioner by PANTENE Pro-V. It’s their daily moisture renewal rehydration Dream Care line. I’ve never used their products. So this was my first time.Β 

I first noticed the smell as it smells very good. I mean a fruity floral sweet smelling scent. Something I’d love as a candle scent. I used both products and they felt great. The shampoo really got my hair squeaky clean. Similar to the feel I get when using my tea tree shampoo. The conditioner smells good and it had my hair feeling soft and silky. I love when products don’t bother my hair in any way. Altering my natural texture and feel. So overall, this duo did me well. Leaving my hair soft and smelling good is definitely a plus.

Now I can’t say that I’ll buy these products myself. Only because I try to buy hair products that cater specifically to women of color. However they seem to do a good job. I have about two more uses of my sample products so that’s another two weeks or four weeks of use depending on whether I wash every week or bi-weekly. Either way I get to enjoy theses good smelling products a few more times. All goodz!

Anywho, have you ever tried these products particularly? Any PANTENE products? If so what are your thoughts?Β 

 

 

I hope this week shines a new light on you. Sending new blessings that you’ve been waiting on and endings you’ve been looking forward to. Happy Monday Luvz!πŸ’«

I’m allowing my hair to air dry before styling it. I’m unsure if I want it straight or twisted. Decisions, decisions!πŸ€”

CURLS CURLS CURLS

Hey Ladies,

20170325_220037

Lately I’ve been rocking my hair curled when I have time to do so. For those of you that know me or follow me on social media can easily see how much I love my hair straightened. However lately I’ve been really loving my face, look and hair in curls. It make my hair look very nice and full. The curls are always so vibrant and bouncy. Now I do have a problem with them lasting long but I hope to eventually find something that can help them last longer.

So far I use a heat protection by Chi, and I use my beveling iron on 375 to achieve the look. Voila!

See why I love these Curls for the Girls?! They are so pretty plus they make me feel more sexy. Oh and my man thinks their pretty on me too.

Do you wear curls? If so, what is it that you do to make your curls last? Let’s chat about it.

Today is my last day on vacation, so back to work for me tomorrow. I’m not excited about it, but I’m cool with it. Can’t wait to be working, doing what I love because I know only then will I be excited about my work days. I’m getting there too, this year. Β 

I hope this Monday is going well for you.

DOUBLE A MAKEUP | LOLA BUNNY

Hey Y’all! πŸ‘‹

I got to start off by saying yesterday was a total fkn joke and I can’t believe my Falcons gave up 2nd half but I guess better luck next time eh.They did play a great season (my better way of looking at it). Tuh!🏈😝 

Anywho this post is about my Lola Bunny Mink strip lashes. I purchased them from DoubleAMakeup.com. I wear strip lashes very often so when the owner of Double A Make, Arielle mentioned she was coming out with a eyelash line being the “Lash Goddess” I am I had to support her. I was excited to try them so I put my pre-order in. They came packaged well and they also came with a gift inside the packaging for being one of the first to purchase. As you can see the gift was my other favorite, a lipstik. Yasss!πŸ’„πŸ‘„ Proud customer!Β 

Arielle is a makeup artist in Atlanta GA that offers mobile services. She even offers one on one basic makeup sessions for you to learn to do your own makeup. So you can learn a little something if you’re interested in doing so. She’s amazing at what she does. Trust me and go check her out on Instagram and follow shop with and support her @arielleantoinette_makeup. Thank me later ladies. Oh she’s affordable too!Β 

The Lola Bunny’s are under $15 and is a great buy at that price. Trust me I’m the everyday lash chick so I would know. Hell I’m a lash guru! πŸ€” Or at least I think I am.πŸ˜‚ Any who here’s more pics! Oh and my natural hair has been fleeking lately. Can you say new bevel irons. Today was wash and straighten day too.πŸ’

Go to www.doubleamakeup.com to get you a pair. Tell her Bella sent ya!πŸ˜‰

Today is a new week to continue something, start something or end something. Let’s get it!

Happy Monday Luvs!

RADHA ORGANICS

I have been using this Radha Organics Moisturizer & Cleanser that I got from my last Cocotique Beauty Box. In case you haven’t heard about Cocotique they are a brown girl beauty box subscription company that sends out nice brown girl friendly products to you every month for a flat rate of $20 monthly. If you are interested in a beauty box with them go to Cocotique and sign up.Β 

Any who so about this Radha Oragnics, I use the Cleanser in the shower click here to read about it. I love the way it smells. It’s just a fresh smell an organic smell it reminds me of Nubian Heritage soaps that I enjoy using. It doesn’t lather up much but I squeeze one pump apply to my face/neck leave on for a full minute or two then rinse. My face feels instantly fresh and it gets my makeup (light coverage) off too.Β

After the shower I use one pump of the Moisturizer (click here to read about it) and it feels fresh smell fresh and it’s not greasy. My skin feels nice afterwards. Nothing spectacular just a nice fresh organic moisturiser. I like both products but honestly I’m just a water rinse coconut oil or Cetaphil for my daily use kinda chick. I don’t use lots of products, I just like to try them out.Β

Luckily I have nice skin all the time. So I don’t complicated my life about particular skin products because simple things do the trick like olive oil and even vaseline. Aside from under eye darkness my skin is perfect. However, I’ve become accustomed to under eye darkness. Any who, will I buy I buy this product, yes, as long as the price fits my budget at the time of purchase. For me you really can’t go wrong with organic products in less for some reason your skin just don’t like it other than that they are the better products for us all.

Have you tried Radha Organics before?πŸ€” If so, which ones (s)?πŸ€” It’s the weekend Falcons are about to turn TF up AND WIN this game. I hope your weekend be lit/cool/relaxing/productive you know, all that. Happy Fridays Luvs!✌ 

It’s Super Bowl 51 baby!🏈

NYX LIPPIES | πŸ‘„

Here are some really nice inexpensive lippies from NYX.Β They are called NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme (s). I bought mines from a Sally’s beauty supply store.Β The are matte but with a creamy feel to them. Very soft on the lips as it glide on easy due to it being a creme. It dries matte but with moisture. It does not dry out my lips at all. I love them, they are nice.Β 

They are all that you gotta try them out if you haven’t already. They had more colors but I didn’t want them. I got them in four different colors. The color pigment is great. They are price at less than $7 for each one. Not bad, right?!

SWEET SEDUCTIVE FLORAL WOODY | REPOST

I got this perfume a while ago Lam bought it for me. I’d mentioned to him that I wanted it so when he came home with it I was very happy & couldn’t wait to smell it on myself. I’d only smelled it from my magazines. It’s the Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium which was definitely a great buy for only $115 before tax at Macy’s. I love it!

I get plenty of compliments on this bad baby. It’s said to have white flowers of jasmine sambac & vanilla beans for smell. It smells very floral yet woody too. A great mixtureof both with a seductive type of tang to it. That description tho. (–) The slogan they have for it is pretty dope too. It goes “Black, not a color, an attitude” Hey now! I can feel that baby! So yes, this has been added to my constant growing perfume collection.

Β Have you ever smelled it before? Your thoughts if you have?

What are you wearing right now, today?

Peace Luvs!
