“Metallic lips or die!!!” That’s that battle cry of make up enthusiasts everywhere. From companies like Milani, Colourpop, Limecrime and Kylie Kosmetics… This year’s hottest lip trend was metallic colors. Now Colourpop is the most affordable ( $6 a tube) but many make up gurus have expressed that the formulation leaves much to be desired. Lime crime has the pigmented lip perlees duos but the price is a bit high ($30). However fear not, I have found an affordable lip kit that’s offers both a matte lip color along with either sparkle, chroma, or velvet powders to create the perfect metallic lip color for $6.99. The company is called Tattoo …

  I saw this brand on Dreka Gates (Kevin Gates’ wife) IG account. The company is called AM eyewear and they are based out of Australia. The style is called Capt Jonny and I am indeed in love with them. The company offers a ton of different styles to fit all taste.   They retail for $282. So by the price you can tell that this company makes luxury eyewear. I love their interpretation of tortoise shell. The website is: www.ameyewear.com I might have to talk my husband into letting me buy them. 🙂

YES, ladies for $510 you can buy Balmain Hair Couture extensions… *rolls eyes* and no I do not know why their extensions cost that much but if I had to guess, I would guess it has to do with the brand name. They also make Balmain hair products that start (START) at $43 and up. I hear you Balmain, cash in on the billion dollar hair industry but I wonder how does these products measure up to comparable brands like Redkin, Paul Mitchell, Jane Carter, BioSilk, etc., who deliver results for half the price. Final Thought: designer hair care isn’t really necessary when there are other brands that deliver for …

Every year for my Bornday I try to wear a fabulous pair of heels. For my 29th and 30th birthday I wore the same shoes (a pair of lovely black and gold Tom Ford sandals). This year since I am saving for a new place my selection wasn’t as luxurious but is just as opulent in design. The Privileged “Golden” Heels are this year’s birthday shoe of choice. Clear shoes have been hot on the fashion scene due to Rihanna and Kim Kardashian. The Golden heel is a clear shoe with a black platform. The front is bejeweled with clear crystals. Love at first buy…. Material: Man-Made Heel size: 5.25 …
