Air Jordan 10 "OVO" Release Has Been Pushed Back

The Air Jordan 10 "OVO" initial release date was September 12th; however it has been reported that the release date has been pushed back to October 3rd. This may be a wise marketing scheme by Drake and Nike to increase sales.  However, you have to admit it is a cool looking shoe. I love the gold trimming and gum bottom! Will you be copping?

Glam Cheapie Beauty Faves

So many of my friends are hooked on Mac Cosmetics; and yes Mac is a great product line; however not everyone can afford their products. I've actually stopped using their foundation, blot powder, concealer, and lately their lipsticks because I've found other products that are less expensive however the quality is amazing. Below is a list of my favorite cheapie beauty products I can't live without.

Rimmel's Stay Matte Primer is my go to Face Primer. This primer is to be worn underneath your foundation and concealer. It keeps your face shine proof for over 5 hours. I blot my face only once a day when using this product. This product is only $6.99 and can be found a CVS or Ulta.

The LA Girl Pro Concealer is an amazing concealer! It gives great under eye coverage for dark circles and bags. I love using it to contour, which I will actually create a how to blog post on some time this week. This concealer sells for $2.99; and can be found at your local beauty supply or at

The Ben Nye Topaz Powder is the black woman's holy grail of Translucent Powder! OMG I can't live without it! One container last me forever. It sets your foundation so beautifully and has slight shimmer to it that looks amazing on our brown skin tones. Also, their banana powder is great for contouring! All the celebrity makeup artist use the banana powder to set their contour; search it on you tube. This powder sells for $7.00, however it is not available in stores and can only be ordered online at Camera Ready Cosmetics
Everyone knows I love a good lipstick! And these Matte Pigmented Glosses by LA Girl are one of my favorites! These dry into a long lasting high pigmented Matte lipstick! They last all day! One application and your set for the day. My favorites shades are Rebel, Secret, and Black Currant. They sell for $3.99 and are available at your local beauty supply. If you live in the Houston Area inbox me and I can send you a couple of locations or you can purchase online at

If your more of a gloss girl, you will love the LA Girl Glazed lip paint. I like to wear lip glosses when I'm on the go. However these are amazing because you get a high pigmented glossy lip that wears well. The Glazed lip paint's are also available in your local beauty supply, the sell for $2.99 on ikatehouse

Amazing Lash Studio Review

Hi Glam Goddesses! I recently jumped on the eyelash extension bandwagon and decided to use Amazing Lash Studio as my lash go to spot.I switched from my cheapie beauty supply lashes because their too time consuming. With lash extensions your full set application is done once and you follow up with lash refills every two to three weeks.

Amazing Lash Studio has four different eye lash types:

Natural- Your lashes just longer fuller but natural looking
Gorgeous- Red Carpet Ready lashes; longer fuller lashes all over
Cute- Lashes for ladies with smaller eyes to accentuate shape of the eyes
Sexy- Longer lashes in the outer corner of your eyes

I decided to get the natural lashes, which I researched before I went to the appointment.
I arrived to the lash studio the suggested 10 minutes early because I was a new client; to fill out paperwork. Then I was greeted by lash stylist Camila.

The application was painless. There was a lot of tape used on my eye; however it wasn't uncomfortable. Each eye took about 30 minutes to apply lashes.

The End Result

I love my lashes they look very natural!
My full set application was priced at $100.00 only because I used a master lash stylist.

If you choose to not use a master eyelash stylist your full set of lashes will be priced at $79.99.
Because I am happy with my lash extensions I decided to start a membership with Amazing Lash Studio for $45.99 a month that covers my refill for any lashes. Next time I'm definitely going to try the Gorgeous lashes for a more dramatic effect though. Overall I recommend The Amazing Lash Studio. They are very professional and much less expensive then other lash studios in Houston.
I went to the Westheimer and Gessner location; if your there request Camila as your lash stylist she's great!

The Liquid Lipsticks Every Black Girl Needs

My new obsession are liquid lipsticks. I haven’t worn any of my Mac lipsticks since I’ve tried liquid lipsticks. The reason I love them so much is because they literally only take one application a day.
Yes, that’s right one!
The color is more bold and vivid!

What I suggest is to google each brand name and color name, go to images; so you can see what each color looks like.
