Mermaid's Tale

I am liking, OK, loving  this color. It took 2 coats and 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat to get a shiny and smooth finish.  I had a 20% off coupon at CVS and nail blogs have been comparing this to a Deborah Lippmann shade that it resembles.  It lasted 4 days which is long for me, but like all glitters it was Hell to take off. Got plenty compliments though.

My New Love.....Iman Cosmetics

There was once a time, long long ago when I was on the MAC bandwagon.....HARD.  About 14 years ago my makeup case only consisted of MAC.  My love for makeup grew and I began to venture out and try other brands but again they were mostly higher end brands.  Over the past few years I have grown to love drugstore brands and my holy grail for my everyday face has become IMAN COSMETICS.  As an African American one of my gripes have been that there were not always colors that suited my skin tone....because IMAN is formulated for women of COLOR, I no longer have that problem.

The new products that I have use and love are:

The Liquid Foundation
# I love this is so light and perfect for everyday wear.....but of course I need to set it. So...

#This is wonderful and it reminds me of BareEscentuals because it has minerals in it and you can wear it alone....this is my replacement for's cheaper and works as well.

My last current fave is....

#Well this is a bronzer, blush, and highlighter separately but a swirl all together gives my skin a glow that is beyond measure....I love this stuff!

Enough about IMAN Cosmetics for now....I love it and recommend it to everyone when they ask what I use....Now if I really want to be BEAT, I always reach for my DiorSkin but this, for an everyday face is ENOUGH!!!!
Until next time....

Iman can be purchased at Walgreens, and some Target Stores.  I was not paid for this and purchased these items with my own money...

It's Been A Long Time....

....and I am not even going to make any excuses...but I am BACKKK!
