Lorac Pro Palette Review

I have literally been eyeing up the Lorac Pro Palette for months.  I’m late in getting this but I am so glad I finally did. Before I couldn’t justify buying another Palette considering how many I already have so I waited. I started realizing most of my palettes such as the Naked Palettes all consist of shimmery colors and only a few matte colors. That’s what I love about the Lorac palette its the perfect mix of mattes and neutrals. This palette includes 8 mattes and 8 neutrals. I’ve noticed on some of my other palettes I start thinking that I wish certain shimmer shades were mattes and vice versa. With this Lorac Palette I feel like the mattes are perfect matte shades and the shimmers are perfect shimmer shades. The pigmentation of these shades are amazing. This is a must palette and I’m so glad I finally have my hands on it.

My Top 5 Concealers

Concealers are my best friend. No literally they are. I used to never see the point in them but now they are lifesavers. I had the hardest time trying to find concealers in the past because they are so hit or miss. I have been using these gems for a while and find they work the best for me. In no specific order here are my top five concealers.

IMG_7186.JPG
1. Sonia Kashuk All Covered Up Concealer: I love the consistency of this stuff. It’s creamy and blendable which makes it perfect for under the eyes and on all the random spots that need covering.

2. Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer:
I love this for days I don’t need a very heavy coverage concealer. It goes on so light and easy under the eyes. Because this brightens the skin I would recommend this for under eye use. That just my opinion it might work differently for someone else. The only thing I dislike is that the tube seems to get dirty so quickly. Other than that I love it!

3. NYX Above and Beyond Full Coverage Concealer: This is perfect for all those pesky spots that need covering. I don’t use this under my eyes because it settles into my fine lines and that’s not cute but it covers spots on my face beautifully.

4. Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer and Highlighter: I love the Rimmel True Match Foundation so I bought this one day and have not regretted it. I mostly put this under my eyes and down my noes because of the highlighting aspect of it. It’s a liquid but it’s not runny and blends perfectly in your skin. It’s just an overall great concealer.

5. NYX HD Photogenic Concealer: This is my sister holy grail concealer. She literally uses nothing else. For months she told me to try this so finally I did a couple months ago and I adore it now as well. It make me looks so awake and alive in the morning. I actually use this when I do a heavy highlight and contour because it’s just so lightening to my skin. If you’re wanting to try highlighting I would highly recommend this product.

Exuviance Brand Review


Recently I’ve come across this brand called Exuviance. I absolutely love it! Who wouldn’t though! I have been using three different products that I would like to share with you. So lets get started.image (3)
image ex
1. Opti Light Essential 6 Serum
This is for anyone who wants brighter skin. This not only reduces the appearance of dark spots but also prevents new ones from forming. This product lightly exfoliates the skin to clear away dark spot and create an even skin tone.

2. Exuviance Performance Peel AP 25
This is a two step process that is super easy and so good for your skin. It helps take away dead skin cells and stimulates the process of skin renewal. It is proven to refine pores, smooth skin, and brighten skin. It has work so good on my skin. It brings a freshness to my face and you can feel it helping.

3.Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex
This is a nightly moisturizer that ive been using and it works great. It includes lipids, vitamins, and botanicals that work with their patented poly hydroxyl to smooth and reduce wrinkles on the skin.

So as you can tell I’ve been loving the Exuviance line of skincare. If you would like to check it out here is the website. XOXO

Outfit of the Day and You Make Me Brave

This morning was absolutely amazing. I went to my church for service and I feel so renewed and full of hope. Before Church I was listening to You Make Me Brave by Bethel. I really just let it sink in. I let the words penetrate my heart. Im brave. Not because I make myself that or that the world has made me brave but God has. I’m so much more than I ever thought I was. I’m brave.

For my outfit it’s literally all from H&M except my shoes are from a store called Sassy Pickens in Queen, NYC. I hope you all had a wonderful Sunday. XOXO
