The illustrious On Makeup Magazine has featured Scandalous Beauty as one of the top beauty bloggers!!! What an honor!! I was so excited that I even created a video about it. I hope you picked up MAC Sea & Sky Mineralize Eye Shadow. Trust me, I’m wearing it in the video, and now I think I may need to purchase a back up or two! Many of our fellow blogging sisters are featured as well. Congratulations everyone!!!
P.S. If you haven’t been over to the Black WebLog Awards site to vote for Scandalous Beauty for best Fashion and Style Blog, I’d really appreciate if you would! Thanks!!!
While checking out celebrity gossip on Mrs. Grapevine, I found the most stunning image that I have seen in a very, very long time. I hope and PRAY that Mrs. Michelle Obama becomes the First Lady of the United States of America!!!! Her makeup is refreshing, understated and perfectly done. I’m SO proud of this image!!! Ebony Magazine, thank you so much for capturing this image to perfection!! I’ll be purchasing my copy, ASAP!!!
This look screams Bobbi Brown Cosmetics to me. This is, by far, the most perfect “Corporate America” look. Soft and matte are really the key trends to this look. The soft, Raisenesque blush completes the look. While you’re on Bobbi’s site, be sure to take a gander at the Mauve Palette ($55), which is SO gorgeous!!! It comes with a lovely mauve blush, three eye shadows and three lip colors. A must have for the girls that love a classic look. I’m so proud of the Obama’s!!! Yes We Can!!!!!!
Mr. Shu Uemura would be so proud of his team. As if Shu wasn’t already an eyelash powerhouse, they’ve teamed up with designers Viktor & Rolf to keep us intrigued!!! And get this, each pair of eyelashes sells for $95!!! Trust me all, I will NOT own a pair of these! Perhaps we’ll catch a glimpse of these bad boys on the Fashion Week runway in a few weeks??
It arrived on my doorstep just days ago. And I can’t wait to plop it into my head!!! I am looking into using as many all natural products in my natural hair. It really does make a lot of sense. When my Lush catalog arrived, I instantly scrambled for the hair section. There, I found Lush Retread ($22.35). The description says “A hair cocktail in a jar, which helps get abused or neglected hair back on track, Retread conditions and moisturizes the hair, leaving it shiny, full of bounce and deliciously perfumed. Soya milk with minerals and amino acids helps to rebuild and seaweed softens your hair. Retread is fragranced with sunny, clean essential oils of neroli, orange flower, violet leaf and synthetic musk. This protein packed conditioner nourishes stressed out hair back to health.” Sounds like a winner to me!!
I noticed that all of the reviews on the site aren’t amazing. Four out of five stars isn’t bad at all. But, I know a secret that some of the other Retreaders may not know. Oils. Adding oils to conditioners or moisturizers makes a world of a difference!! So, I will try it alone, and see how I like it. But, if it doesn’t make my hair happy, I’ll be adding some of my trusty Vatika oil to the mix.
I’ve cut down on how often I wash my hair. But, for the next week or so, I’ll be using only American Cream Conditioner. Lush says “American Cream is a double strength conditioner which still manages to have a light, calming, high shine, revitalizing effect on your hair. It’s based on an American cocktail recipe and smells like a vanilla milk shake. Honey water reduces static to keep your hair calm, and fresh organic oranges and strawberries make it shine. There’s a touch of clary sage, benzoin and lavender fragrance which also helps to keep your scalp in shape. Your hair smells almost edible all day after a helping of American Cream; if you have long hair you’ll have to resist chewing it, but you won’t be able to resist stroking it!” With me luck, and don’t forget, oils are your friend!!
