FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna


I know by now everybody has heard about Rihanna’s make-up line. I am probably the last to get on the wagon but it is better late than never. I am not the type that follows the hype but, there is something about Rihanna so I had to get my hands on it.

I purchased the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, Killawatt Highlighter (trophy wife) and the match stix trio(caramel, truffle, rum). These were the products I was excited about.

I used the products to achieve a fall look.

 

Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation; First of all, the shade range is great. Rihanna has got everybody covered. I am in love with this foundation because it is not cakey and gives you that natural look. Did I mention it dries up matte? Perfect for us oily skin. Initially, I thought shade 380 was lighter for me but it was perfect for me.  The foundation dries to a darker color.

The match stix trio;  This was actually my first cream contour and highlight so I was a bit worried about blending but it was easy to work with.  Once again, very natural and compliments my skin. I used the caramel concealer under my eye, the bridge of my nose and on my jawline, then I contoured with truffle. I used Laura Mercier loose powder to set it. Finished the look by using rum on my browbone, bridge of my nose and cheekbone.

Killawatt Highlighter; If you love glitter then you should check this highlighter out. Not my everyday look but, I got it because I know I will use it a lot during the festive season. It is extremely pigmented but it’s workable. I plan on using it as an eyeshadow as well.

Overall thoughts based on what I got, I love it!

Have you tried any of the Fenty beauty products? Did you love it or hate it?

Thank you for stopping by.

Love, Whitney.

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas


Mothers day is around the corner and this year is my first time marking it as a mother. I am pretty excited about it. Believe me this is an experience every woman should want to experience (Be it biological or not).

I have put together ten gift ideas to help in buying a gift.

1. Necklace with the family’s birthstones.

2. If the mother still has an infant with her, backpack will be great. Something simple that is easily accessible.

3. Lingerie.

4. A gift card to the spa where she will get to be pampered from head to toe (massage,pedicure,manicure,facial).

5. If your wife or mother has shown interest in something she likes, buy it for her. Normally when we want something,we keep talking about it and that is our hint.

6. Personalized mothers day gift e.g, mug, picture frame.

7. Flowers.

8. Perfume.

January Favorites


  

  • Ysl opium perfume;I love this fragrance! It doesn’t matter how many perfumes I have, I always get drawn to this scent. It’s a classy, more mature scent. I don’t need to soak myself in it. A little bit goes a long way. The staying power is strong. 
  • mocassins;I really wore the heck out of it. It is very comfortable and as a mother, I need the comfort more than anything else. I got mine from OldNavy. 
  • Bath and body works Merry Berry Christmas shower gel and its Shea swirl;I got this scent for the Christmas season but being the addicted BBW shopper, I ended up using a different one for December. It smells like berry and it makes my skin so soft. I was a bit sceptic about the scent because of my daughter but initially I gave in and I don’t think it’s a bother to her.
  • I know who i am by Sinach; I am probably late getting on this wagon but ever since my hubby played this song, I haven’t been able to stop singing it . It’s inspirational and motivational. 
  •  Huggies baby wipes; as I wrote earlier on in one of my blogs, I get so tired I don’t even get time to clean my make up. I recently discovered my baby’s wipes does a great job taking make up off. So, I have been using it and it does a pretty good job. 
  • covert affairs, Jessica Jones series;  I am beginning to question myself why I still pay for cable because I hardly watch anything on it. What I need is more data because I am always on Netflix or YouTube. I recently bumped into Jessica Jones and Covert Affairs on Netflix and it’s a damn good series.
  • Sephora Cream lip Stain #5;this is a neutral colour and I have been grabbing it a lot because I don’t have to be worried leaving lipstick stain on my baby’s face. 
  • NYX above&beyond full coverage concealer; I use it to cover the bags under my eye and give to give it a little brightness. It does not crease. 
  • The body shop Drops of youth; this is my favourite serum. It leaves my face smoother and brighter.
