sheamoisture lip stain in bari

Since the launch of SheaMoisture’s makeup earlier this year I have dabbled in a few pieces. You can read my foundation and blush reviews here and here.

Most recently I had the opportunity to try out some of their lip products; a couple of them have become favorites. Lip stains often come with the stigma that while they last for several hours; they can be extremely drying. The SheaMoisture range just may change your mind!

make up forever HD blush 420

I have this magical blush for a few months. I finally test drove in July during the ESSENCE Festival. It is available in 15 shades and is suitable for all skin types.

Unlike many other cream blushes that I own the texture is best described as a cream to powder. It is not as “slick” as you’d imagine a cream blush. Which is pretty awesome as I feel like it wears longer and better than  any other non-powder blush I own.

soft sheen carson hydra steamYesterday I had the opportunity to check out the latest from Soft Sheen Carson. Once I read the invitation I assumed that it was yet another system to temporarily straighten curls and kinks.

ESSENCE Music Festival ended last week and I STILL need a nap. The 2014 Festival was probably my busiest one and trust me, there was no rest for the weary. Which was fine because no one ever came to New Orleans 4th of July weekend to catch up on sleep!

While I did cover all four nights of concerts at the Superdome, there was plenty going on during the day. This year also brought the return of the SheaMoisture Pop up shop. Located at 309 Chartres Street in the French Quarter (about a 10 minute walk from Cafe Du Monde, how convenient).  The shop not only had plenty of products for purchase; there were live demos, makeovers, classes and launch parties!
