Jealousy Wakes Swatches: MAC Blogger Collection

Long time no speak ;) I've been well, just tryna get my life together and will myself to post more often. As most of you know MAC came out with a Blogger's Collection that consists of 5 lipglasses and 4 eyeshadows from various bloggers that were chosen out of many. Well today, one part of my shipment arrived and it was Christine's (Temptalia) Jealousy Wakes eyeshadow. I was extremely excited as this was the 2nd most wanted thing on my list from the collection, my first being All of My Purple Life lipglass, and I also ordered Hocus Pocus in a seperate shipment that should arrive soon as well. This eyeshadow quickly sold out from off the website (Surprise surprise! lol) but it may be available again at some point over the course of the 6 weeks the collection is available so I wanted to give swatches!

Jealousy Wakes is extremely pigmented and a beautiful color, however (yeaaaaa yall knew this was coming) I am extremely disappointed with the actual color. I was expecting some fantastic looking green similar to the pot, but once swatched/worn it comes off more blue than anything. I mean its called jealousy wakes dammit I feel like such a bomb title deserves an amazing OBVIOUS green not a blue that kinda looks green every now and then. WHOMP WHOMP. Here are the swatches...

 With that being said I still look forward to doing an actual full application with this color to see if it makes me a believer. I personally really enjoyed and appreciated the immense amount of background theory and effort that the bloggers put into developing their own product and I hope I am more pleased when my other purchases arrive so look out for updates :) Did you loves get anything from this collection? Do you think I'm absolutely crazy and love this shade of blue maybe green? LMK! lol

Half Wiggin' It: Outre Evony

So I haven't posted in forever but I've been dealing with being hardcore fake busy/lazy and also I've been stalling posts since my face has been breaking out from the heat. I did have a quick weave that I wanted to share and its Outre's Evony. I got her from my local BSS for $23 after I went on a binge looking for some true "dee-vuh hurr"  and she is it! I cut her a lot because I had to make her work appropriate but she is full, very curly, light and no fuss. She does need product after being worn for about a week and I just used water and some type of curly spray. I got lots of compliments and later found out that she is also all the rave amongst YouTubers. I found her extremely easy to blend with my natural hair and she can be worn in a variety of styles that include pulled up in the middle or side(s) or side bang, etc. Im going to try to have at least a few more posts this week and I hit my one year natural last week (yayyyy!) I'll try to post on that!! I'm blogging from my phone so I can only upload one pic but I may come back and upload a few more so you can get a better look at the hair. Overall, I'd give this half wig a 4/5 since you do have to work with it quite a bit to get a desired look. However, if you're looking for fun, big flirty hair then she's for you :)

What products do you loved use to keep you skin clean and oil free during the summer?

Shoe of the Day: Leopard Steve Madden Wedges

I have to say these are one of my favorite pair of wedges probably ever! I went shopping with my mom and she was looking at me as if I was crazy like girl you gon walk around all day in DEM? Lol, YES! They are soooo comfortable and I wore them all day with no type of troubles or bothers. Yeah, I'm that girl who buys pretty much anything with leopard print on it so of course last summer when I saw these I almost died, they were must haves for my closet! The fit around the straps itself is a little loose but its easy to get adjusted to. Sometimes its nice to know you can be comfortable AND stylish! Have you loves come by any great shoe deals lately? Always on the hunt for my stash! Lol
