Just My Beauty Thoughts…

I’m absolutely loving the new Make Up For Ever visual that is in the newest Sephora catalog. I want to try the Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eyeshadow. Sources say that it is crease resistant and I can’t wait to do a smoky eye with it! Can’t wait to hear what creator Dany Sanz has to say at The Makeup Show! Apparently MUFE is adding to its HD line….

I’ve been hearing nothing but amazing feedback about the Kissable Couture 45% off sale! I swear, Scandalous Beauty readers are giving the brand a run for its money. Every time I look at the site there is another sold out gloss! Don’t miss out on the sale, view all of the shades here. Promo code “SB”. I can’t wait to see the newest shade debuting in August, called ‘Lady Love’. This shade is a collaboration with Latoya Luckett!

It took me over 2 weeks to get my hands on a jar of Oyin Handmade Whipped Shea Butter. I tried it for the first time about a month ago when I picked up a dollop of it that was on the side of the mixing bowl. It felt so light and airy, and I knew I needed more! Perfect for Summertime. Get this: Everytime we make a new batch, literally all of it is shipped out to the clients that ordered it. There isn’t enough to keep in stock, thus I couldn’t buy any! That’s absolutely insane, but it’s just that good. I’m a happy camper! By the way, did you get my tweet today? I made my first batch of Burnt Sugar Pomade, a treat for your scalp and hair. Smells like and expensive Creme Brule. Perfect for natural, locked or permed heads. If you purchase it within the upcoming week, you’ll get my batch! I hope you can feel the love and positive energy that I put into it! It took me hours to make!

I’ll be giving instant updates from The Makeup Show on Twitter, so I hope you are following me there! By the way, I’m @ErinScandalous. I’ll be back on Tuesday night. I’ll see some of you there! And don’t be shy if you see me, be sure to say hey! ;-D

Jamyla, Owner of Oyin Handmade

This is a Twitpic from my boss, Jamyla. She’s one of those women that has a ton of hair, but wears it back all of the time. This is completely expected in her line of work. So, I have to say that I was FLOORED when I saw that she posted this pic of herself in the Oyin Store. Look at all of that hair!!!

Many people don’t know that Jamyla had locs, and combed them out. She then just let her hair do its own thing. She is a DIY girl, she relies on no one for her hair. This is pretty evident since you already know that she is head mixtress and owner of Oyin! I’m trying to think of a way for her to reveal her regimen for her hair. An interview, maybe?

I always tell her that her hair is crazy gorgeous! She’s a very humble and modest lady (with an infectious laugh, mind you) so she giggles away and keeps it moving. This is just a quick reminder that patience and nourishment can pay off!

Don’t forget to check out the Oyin Handmade Blog for updates, new product announcements and banter from the super couple (her other half, Pierre also owns Oyin and is a crazy good film maker and artist. Check out some of his productions at www.youtube.com/exittheapple)! Their newest podcast will include the winners of the Oyin/NaturallyScandalous contest!!! Thanks so much for all of you who entered!
