Another Win for Taliah Waajid (Natural Hair) + a BOMB Lippie from a Small Company!

cowash

A few months ago, we talked about Taliah Waajid (read more here). To sum it up, I was new to the world of Ms. Waajid, but boy does she have some GREAT products!  Her Curly Hair Souffle is a staple in my son’s daily hair care regimen, and her Monoi Oil  is my main squeeze.

I alternate between Co-Washes, but the Creamy Curly Co-Wash is one of my regulars.  It smells amazing, and also has great slip which is a must during the detangling process.  It leaves my hair very shiny and well-moisturized!  The price tag is also good for a large amount!

Taliah Waajid’s Creamy Curly Co-wash is your all natural go to product when co-washing. The creamy curly co-wash gently cleanses the hair while also keeping the hair conditioned and hydrated. With Coconut and Aloe Vera as the highlight ingredients creamy curly co-wash is sure to get the job done

Another win for Taliah Waajid is the Curly Curl Cream!  I have to be honest, I think some of the other products from her line smell better-this one has a little more of a perfumey smell.  However, it does what it says it does, and for me, it worked very well with a twist out!  I have yet to try it with a wash-n-go, but I’m optimistic, as she can truly do no wrong at this point 🙂 !

Girrrrrrrrrrrl, look!  I have a new lippie that I want to tell you about.?!?!?!   This company gives Melt Cosmetics a run for their money for a fraction of the price (no shade), and you KNOW how I feel about my beloved Melt!  It’s a small company by the name of Kerry Kosmetics…you’re welcome!

So this color is called Rum Punch, and oh what an accurate name it ’tis!  It packs a mighty color punch and it is at the TOP of the highly pigmented ladder!  Additionally, it’s very matte, and Kerry Kosmetics has found the perfect combo of lipstick ingredients to make this lipstick very creamy!  It didn’t bleed, it lasted for hours and my lips never dried out.  It is seriously one of my favorite lipsticks to date!  You know how I feel about my bolds and my mattes!

It was seriously love upon first application!  It’s so bright that it almost looks fluorescent.  You only need a tad…

I loved it so much that I had a photoshoot off of one lippie!  LOL!  The collage above was just taken in various lighting around the house, no actual filters.  I’m sold.  And that price though….

Intense, vibrant, matte color. My full-coverage formula glides on smoothly for mouth-watering, long-lasting, beautiful lips. Even though its a matte it will not dry your lips out.
(None of my lipsticks are tested on animals and the manufacturer is listed on the PETA safe list)

**I received these products complimentary in exchange for my honest review

So what do you ladies think?  I’m a fan for life of both companies, and I really hope I have the opportunity to show you more Kerry Kosmetic lippies!  It can only get better and better!

Chella Lippie & DIY Makeup Storage

So, if you’re anything like me, your makeup situation is dire!  I mean, I feel like it’s falling out of every crevice in my household, and I’m constantly looking for cute ways to store it!  For now, I settled for some storage bins from Lowes that look a little like this:

The Stack-On 22 Drawer Blue Plastic Storage Cabinet is economical at a mere $16.97, it was already put together (sometimes it’s hard to find time to do mini-projects) and I simply don’t have the time or patience to create makeup storage just yet–although my makeup collection continues to grow and I’m changing my house up–so that remains to be seen….

Additionally, it’s the perfect size for eyeshadows, brushes, eyeliners, mascaras and more!  To this I’ve added one of the clear simple lipstick and lipgloss holders…works famously!  Okay, I know, not the cutest…but it works! 😉

In my quest to make my beauty items organized, displayed and easily accessible, I ran across the following ideas online!  Some cute, some ugly (in my opinion) but unique nonetheless!  #goals

This Bundt Cake Pan storage idea wins the award for homely!  No shade to those of you that love this, but it’s not my cup of tea.  However, I will say, it’s super unique, and could be oober cute in the right setting.  Almost everyone has a Bundt Cake pan laying around the house, will you use yours for your Urban Decay?

Now this, is bombtastic!  Do you know what this is?  Stumped?  It’s ice-cube trays!  A+!  If only all of my makeup came in little small circular containers like this lucky girl!  Certainly a great idea to slip these inside of your drawers, and so cheap!  Yassss!

This was also super cute!  I think you could find these little holder/pail thingys at any el-cheapo store for a great price!  Maybe a fancy curtain rod, towel rack or something similar, some gadgets to hang it and…..

What do you think about this one?  I don’t have tons of brushes, but this would also be cute for your eyeliners, mascaras and even lipglosses!

Have you heard of Chella I hadn’t.  The fun thing about Ipsy is the opportunity to try many brands at an affordable price.  At some time or another, I received the Chella Moisturizing Lip Pencil in Passionate Pink, and I recently had the opportunity to wear it…love!

First of all, the packaging of the item is deceiving!  I thought the color was orange (yes, I could’ve red the name but what would I do that for?!) and so I sort of pushed it aside as I hadn’t been in the mood for orange.  On a whim, I decided to open it, swatch it, and it’s like a hot, rich fuchsia…SUPRISSSSSE! Additionally, this is no ordinary lip pencil, it feels like a rich and creamy like a lipstick!  It also lasted relatively well too!

The Chella MOISTURIZING Lipstick Pencil, available in 2 shades- Marvelous Mauve and Passionate Pink is shiny, keeping your lips soft and moist!

Let’s hear it…how is your makeup organized?  Did you buy an organizer, or did you create one yourself?  What’s your favorite from Ipsy as of late?
