Oh So This Is The New “Passing”

By: Ruth Jordan So as I scrolled on my social media yesterday I came across a post that made me look twice, and then after I read the caption, I kept swiping to make sure I was truly seeing what I though i was seeing which was Caucasians in the practice of “passing” as an African American. Instagram handle, @BlackGirlsWithStyle who serves as a platform …

Product Review: Urban Decay Quick Fix Hydra Charged Complexion Prep Priming Spray

By Kevelyn Vargas This winter has been harsh on my skin. The chilly winds have been hitting my skin like some bricks and I haven’t been appreciating it one bit. I’m used to having oily/combination skin so dry spots and that tight skin feeling were all new to me. One of my best friends recommended I try Urban Decay Quick Fix Hydra Charged Complexion Prep …

Nail Colors to Rock This Winter

By Kevelyn Vargas I’ve been getting my nails done religiously for the last 8 years. Every 2 weeks that salon chair is mine and my nail tech Johanna (shout out to her!) always makes time for me. Over the years I’ve tried almost every color under the sun. I’ve had yellow nails, neon green, burgundy, metallic, holographic and red. But in recent years I’ve gotten …

Best Beauty Gifts for The Holidays

By Kevelyn Vargas Your pockets most likely sensed the holidays coming around before you did. My pockets shriveled up and screamed while I was making my shopping list.

M·A·C VS. L’Oréal

By Kevelyn Vargas My introduction to anything and everything that has to do with make-up started with a simple walk into a Mac store. Ever since then, my foundation, concealer, blush and even some of my brushes have been all Mac. But I recently faced a small problem, I had run out of foundation and needed some quick. The closest Mac store is 30 minutes away, so I had to think of an alternative. I took my ass to the rite aid around my neighborhood and took my sweet time choosing a long-lasting foundation that would replace that mac foundation for the time being.  What I found was the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Longwear Shaping Stick. It has forever replaced my old Mac foundation. It actually lasts LONGER! And its only …

Best Products From the Ordinary Beauty Company

By: Anne Christelle Duchemin Deciem’s Ordinary Beauty Company can seem sketchy at first, but I promise its not. The under $15 products, that come in (what look like) prescription bottles from the pharmacy are a god sent.  These are some of my favorite products.  An alpha hydroxy acid derived from sugarcane, it dissolves the glue-like substance between skin cells, aiding in exfoliation and improving skin …
