The perfect 1-2 for a ‘Completely Bare’ chin

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been slowly figuring out a lot of things that my skin loves and needs to look the best it can. Now that I’ve found a skin care regimen that, for the most part, helps my combo/acne skin stay clear, the next thing I needed to do was find out how to clear a few “bumps” in the road that even the strongest regimen couldn’t cross, until now!

Awhile a back, I reviewed Completely Bare’s Completely Smooth for Body and I love it! In my review, I mentioned that I wanted to try the Completely Smooth for Face. So, Completely Bare was fabulous enough to send it to me to review.

When I got the Completely Smooth for Face, they had also included Bikini Bump Blaster, which was an unexpected surprise.

Why beat around the bush…I get facial hair on my chin. Let me rephrase that, I get stubborn and continuously thick facial hair on my chin that despite weekly waxing, still grows back and just has thick. Ugh, it pisses me off just typing about them!

Anyway, I needed to try and find, not a good, but an awesome hair epilator for my face, but also something to help ingrown hairs.

Although the bikini blaster is for ingrown hairs in the bikini area and thought it would work just as well on my face, I still wanted to try the razor bump pads, which are aimed more for men who get razor pumps. So, I ordered with my own moolah the razor bump blaster pads. They combined with the completely smooth for face seem to be the 1-2 combination I need to keep my chin smooth.

Now, just like with the completely bare for body, don’t expect for your hair to just stop growing for a long time. They do however, slow down the growing process and the hair grows back thinner and not so obvious.

I will say this, I didn’t notice a difference in the texture and formula between the fCompletely Smooth for face and body lotions. The obvious difference is the size of the bottles with the one for body being a little taller.

Also, I after trying both ingrown hair pads for both the bikini area and razor, I also didn’t notice that much of a difference except that the Bikini Blaster had no scent while the Razor Bump Blaster seemed to have a “manly” scent that I kinda liked!

To sum it up, Completely Bare is continuing to get me hooked to their products and if you try them you just might get a hooked, too!

Cult Classic…Clinique’s Black Honey Lipstick

The desire for fall to hurry and tie on her running shoes on and sprint into my life ASAP has motivated me to start scouring my closet and makeup train case to see what items I can’t wait to break out for fall. While I was doing that, I spotted one of my favorite lipsticks EVER, Clinique’s Black Honey Almost Lipstick.

It’s a cult favorite thanks to its ability to provide the most complimentary sheer wash of just bitten red hue to practically any complexion or tone. Although it’s sheer, it can be buildable, but I love the light shiny sheer look. However, the fun part is that when you first look at the lipstick, it looks almost black, hence the black honey name. Major bonus, its probably one of the moisturizing lipsticks you will ever encounter…SERIOUSLY!

No, that's not a bruise or burn mark! See how sheer it is with one swipe?!

Off topic, but I never thought I had full lips until I started to take pictures of myself. To think of all the money I wasted on lip plumpers growing up! Not to mention, the burning tingling sensation that practically all lip plumpers possess. *gives the finger to Lip Venoms*

Collecting Creme of Nature?!

I’ve never been one to fancy just one brand, especially when it comes to shampoo and conditioner. However, over the past couple of month, Creme of Nature has been my go-to shampoos and conditioners. Since Creme of Nature offers gaggles of products in multiple lines, I  don’t have all the counterparts to the products I’ve been mixing and matching.

I wish I could give you all an indept review of each of the items, but to be honest, they all work awesome on my hair, because they all strengthen, moisturize, and overall make my hair soft and manageable. I plan to try other lines from Creme of Nature, because I’m loving them hardcore right now!

Revlon ‘Fiercely’ ‘Pop’s MAC’s ‘Poodle’

As of recently, I’ve had a love/hate relationship with MAC products, especially with their lip glosses. Keep reading for more!

What I love about their glosses is that they have a wide range of shades,  but I’ve noticed that in the past few new items and collections that they’ve gone glitter and shimmer crazy. Seriously, those dazzleglasses could guide ships to shore!

Plus, the gooey consistency has been getting on my nerves, even with my go-to Pink Poodle gloss.

So, I’ve been experimenting with other brands and since Revlon is hands down my favorite drugstore brand I just knew that I could find a simpler substitute for my precious Poodle.

Keep reading for more!

The first gloss that was very comparable to Pink Poodle was Revlon’s Fiercely Fuchsia. It’s basically the same color of Pink Poodle, but without the gold speckles that have recently started to annoy me. The consistency is thick and opaque, but not sticky! Awesome.

The next gloss that I got was one that I kept searching random Walgreens around Memphis for, but couldn’t find it and eventually gave up a couple of months ago. However, a couple of weeks ago, I finally found it where I seem to find all the drugstore cosmetics I want now…at Kroger!

I’ve been wanting Revlon’s Super Lustrous in Pink Pop from their Limited Summer Collection that included 3 colors, but Pink Pop was the one that got my heart fluttering when I saw it swatched all over Youtube.

Pink Pop is very reminiscent of MAC’s cremesheen in Loud and Lovely, but not as pigmented or thick which I don’t mind one bit.

To be honest, I’ve recently started to get back into makeup after a few months of not really caring about getting the ‘It’ beauty of the moment. I think it can become to overwhelming when their is a new collection or limited item coming out every week from different lines, not just MAC. However, I think this break did me some good and I’m ready to start building up my makeup collection again. I have a lot catching up to do!
