The View from 57th and 9th

I’m staying at a crappy hotel. I didn’t even want to take a shower this morning b/c I was convinced that I’d be cleaner, dirty! LOL! I’m staying on the 16th floor, and I’ve got a hell of a good view. It was GORGeous last night! I’ve got video footage of that!




The Makeup Show: Day 1

Hey,Hey, Hey!

I’m kickin’ it in my hotel room after a LONG day at The Makeup Show. I have never met so many people before in my life! I met so many SB readers and Youtube watchers. Seriously, I am so happy to have met you all! It was dumb packed and there were tons of people shopping and browsing, so I didn’t do too much investigative work. The counters I stayed at the longest were Becca Cosmetics and Kissable Couture!I know this isn’t the best picture, but there will be more to come. The range of color that Becca Cosmetics creates is unheard of. I don’t care if you live on the equator, Becca’s got your shade. Literally everytime I see the line, I am flabbergasted. And the shadows? Silk. Well, silky powder. I plan to get the shade Lame’ tomorrow. Keep in mind, you get what you pay for. Becca is on the pricier side, but it’s SO well worth it. If you purchase it on dermstore.com and add it as one of your favorites, you’ll get 10% off. You’ll also get free shipping and samples! More info on Becca to come…definitely a youtube video…

This stunning shade is the newest edition to Kissable Couture’s roundup, ‘Lady Love’. If you’ve seen Latoya Luckett’s newest video, she’s wearing it in the scene where she is performing live, toward the end of the video. AJ Crimson did her makeup for the video, and he gave me all of they juicy details. You know I can’t spill it all right now though! The shade officially debuts in August, and you won’t be able to get enough of it! Everytime I went back to the booth, the counter was more and more empty…he was selling out of EVERYTHING! All of the gift sets sold out in the first few hours. Craziness.

Much more coverage is coming via Youtube and the blog. Stay tuned….

My Newest Blog!

Hey everyone!

I clearly leave for my trip to NYC in 4 hours. I haven’t packed a single item, but I’m on here blogging! Just wanted to let you all know about my new blog, An Urban Scandal. I discuss the things that inspire me, as well as some of my vices, neo-soul music, Starbucks, fashion. It’s a sprinkling of everything!

My biggest decision at the moment is deciding if I will keep the blog seperate or combine it with Scandalous Beauty. As I said on Twitter, I don’t want to be one of the “talkaboutalittlebitofeverything” blogs. SB didn’t start out that way, and I don’t want to alter it to be that way! So, feel free to check me out. I’ll be mobile blogging from NYC, stay tuned!

Hey everyone!

I haven’t used this blog in over 3 years, but I thought I should come on over and update you! If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen my loc progress. I’ve been loc’d for 4 years now! This is a style I created a few weeks ago at a blog conference.

Also, I have a lifestyle blog called Peace, Love: Erin Joy right here on Blogger. It’s a lifestyle blog that covers family, food, decor and the journey to my wedding in March. I post there every couple days, so I hope you’ll follow me there! I’m still blogging about makeup on my beauty blog, Scandalous Beauty, and I’ve got new videos coming to my YouTube channel soon!
