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 🙂 !

new lipstick

 

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)

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!

Melt Cosmetics & Christina Moss’ Organic Soap

It’s been coveted for a long time…watched from afar.  Drooled over–it made my heart skip a beat.  I wrote its name in hearts, and often dreamt of the day when we would be united.  I have been in love with twins, not identical, but fraternal.  Yes, it’s freaky, don’t judge me!  I love them both the same.  And on Valentine’s Day, my world was rocked when I received them both, courtesy of my husband!  Melt Cosmetics’ Love Sick and Dark Matter Stack!  LOL!  What else could I have been talking about?  Get your mind out of the gutter!

If you’ve followed me, you know that I’ve had a major thing for Melt Cosmetics.  I’ve tried their lipstick and loved, and have really wanted the eyeshadows…but I’m such a drugstore girl, I’ve had a hard time finding the desire of coming off of $48 for 4 shades.

See previous post regarding Melt Cosmetics

But baaaaaby, thank goodness for holidays and gifts! Let’s discuss!

The Love Sick Stack!

PROMISCUOUS- a beautiful color changing violet-blue! Use it alone, or combine it with black to reveal a completely different shade!

FIXATED – a gorgeous matte grey inspired by one of our favorite lipsticks, Space Cake, so pigmented and cool you have to see to believe 

AMELIE- a perfectly peachy gold, you’ll want to add it all over Cheeks! Highlight! Eyes! It glistens and glides on with ease

LOVE SICK- a beautiful ultra-matte burgundy-red …inspired by our most popular lipstick 6six6!

Dark Matter Stack!

BLURR- a soft beautiful blending/eraser shadow

UNSEEN- a cool-medium delicious caramel brown

ENIGMA- a beautiful rusted red-brown

DARK MATTER- the most pigmented pitch-black

Okay, so both stacks are equally as awesome!  Prior to purchase, I showed SLIGHT favoritism to Dark Matter.  But, all of these shades compliment each other, and I’ve had so much fun mixing and matching.  It is true, they’re VERY highly pigmented and deliver great color that lasts all day without creasing, fallout and have are so easy to blend!  Amelie, of the Lovesick Stack, is such an original color, and so bright!  I’ve enjoyed putting this on my brow bone, as well as well as my bottom lash line (and truly every where else in between 😉 ).  Promiscuous is one of the brightest, most unique shades of purple that I own!  Love Sick contains the most sparkly colors.

Dark Matter is team captain of the matte crew.  It oftentimes is difficult to get matte eyeshadow that’s highly pigmented, especially for dark skin like mine.  Dark Matter is the truth, shows up so well on my skin and does not fade throughout the day.  Enigma, is amazing–I would say these collections are highly moving to the top of my favorite list!!!!  They’ve recently added Radioactive, which I’m not yet a super fan of and have not yet purchased.  We’ll see how that plays out…

 

At the end of the day, after dabbling in all that makeup, it’s great to have something organic to wash and cleanse your face and body!  Do you remember in my previous post when we touched on some of the great products from Christina Moss Naturals? 

organic soapNo, this is not a roast!  (or maybe it is just me, I’m pretty imaginative).  This, is the organic, all-natural Glycerin Bath Bar! It lathered well, yet was very gentle on my skin, and I was able to even use this on my face!  It’s a smooth and silky consistency, and I didn’t experience any skin tightness which is great.  It comes with 2 bars and it won’t break the bank.  Here’s a little about the product:

  •  PERFECT FOR ALL SKIN TYPES. HYPOALLERGENIC. ESPECIALLY GREAT FOR THOSE WITH VERY SENSITIVE, DRY OR OILY SKIN: NO harmful chemicals (no SLS, SLES, PG, PG derivatives, parabens, sulfates, dyes or synthetic fragrance). Greatly improves condition of the skin. Please note color may slightly vary from bar to bar.
  • ORGANIC & 100% NATURAL INGREDIENTS: Satisfaction Guaranteed. Our products are prepared fresh on a regular basis to ensure they are at their optimum best when you receive them. We even go one step further and guarantee purity and freshness for 6 months after your purchase date. Should anything appear unsatisfactory to you within that time, simply return it for a replacement or full refund.
  • CRUELTY FREE – NO ANIMAL TESTING. VEGAN FORMULA: Environmentally friendly. TWO BAR SET. Gently & thoroughly cleanses your skin without stripping, drying out your skin or leaving build-up. Baby safe! Our soap does not contain any toxic anesthetizing ingredients (tear duct numbing agents). Tip: When washing baby’s hands or face area, rinse them right away to avoid baby getting soap in eyes.

Spotlight on Melt Cosmetics!

I’ve had my eye on Melt Cosmetics for a while!  Have you heard of them or tried anything?  I’m in love with bold makeup colors, and this group seems to be the queen of bright, vibrant lippies and of course they are….drumroll please….MATTE!  Ahh….

Here is what is currently giving me goosebumps:

 

MELTlips-6six6_1024x10246six6

Don’t let that devil name fool you, because this lipstick appears to be all sorts of heavenly!  It’s perfect for fall, and the color strikes me as classy and bold.  It looks great on this girl’s porcelain skin, and I think it will also translate well on my chocolate skin!

As you can see, this one is sold out, but boy, once it’s back in stock, I’ll be giving my debit card the workout it enjoys!  The purple looks so bright…I have so many shades of purple lipstick!  But each of them are my fave in a different way.  I don’t play favorites with my babies!

I just ordered this one, and it hasn’t had sufficient time to arrive yet.  All I can say is I.CAN’T.WAIT.  I don’t have a color even similar to this, so I am doing back flips in anticipation of this puppy’s arrival!  Be looking for the review for this one…

Shady Lady Shady Lady

This one looks amazing, I can see this in the summer or spring especially!  But I like rule-breaking–I’m a wear white after Labor Day kinda girl!  This one is a bit of a safer bet for you girls that are a bit of a chicken with regard to bold lippies–but still bright enough to grace us with some pizzazz!

As of now, this company appears to mostly focus on lips–they have 2 eyeshadow palettes offered which look pretty cute too!

The lipsticks aren’t a bad price either–$19.00 USD each.  The eyeshadow is a bit pricey at $48.00.  What are your thoughts on Melt and what you see here?
