I ♥ Revlon: Mad About Mauve Lipstick

For all you brown skin ladies who like pink but don't like wearing it too bold on the lips, this is may be the color for you. It is a creme which means it has no frost or shimmer to it. This is the old formula so it is a bit more opaque than the newer version but I am sure you will get the same effect. Newer Revlon lipsticks have the window at the top of the tube and mine does not, so that's how I know.
This is a very toned down version of the pinks that you see me normally wear! Let me know what you think, leave a comment below or PM me.

Beverly Johnson Front Lace Line Wig (Alexa)

Disclaimer: This is not a paid advertisement or review. This wig was purchased by me. I am not affiliated with Samsbeauty.com.

This wig has three combs in the front. No combs in the back but has adjustable straps. The lace stops at the front of the head, so there is no lace on the sides. It is made with Futura fiber so it can be curled up to *392 degrees. The hair is very soft however the lace is a bit itchy. Overall I like the hair and the length.
Pros: Beautiful Color, Futura Fiber, Nice Length, Adjustable, Soft Hair, Great Price.
Cons: No Back Comb, Itchy Lace.
Color: FS27/613
Price: Available for limited time for $19.99

I ♥ Revlon: Persian Melon

This is one of Revlon's Moon Drops Lipsticks, instead of a black matte or shiny case, it's case is green. Love's it, with a little see thru window at the top this lipstick is a blue base creme pink. I like it, because it's very very bold, it is alil on the retro side, you know I love my pinks, but this would be especially stunning on someone with fair or pale skin. not saying it doesn't look good on me, but I would not call it a everyday wearable pink, for me it would have to be more on the fuchsia side like Lilac Champagne. But all in all it is a pretty color. Very moisturizing and creamy. Not really long lasting but still worth having in your collection if you collect various hues of lipsticks.

Cover Girl Queen Collection Vibrant Hue Color Lipstick: Cherrylicious

I'm going to be honest with you all, this is my first Cover Girl ever! Not my first product from the queen collection I have three or four of the eye shadows which have amazing pigment. I always shy away from cover girl lipsticks because I never felt they were worth the price which has gone up considerably from what it use to be and they never seemed to have my color, but the past is in the past, in come's Queen a collection geared towards women of color. Hallelujah! Because of this deep pigmented creamy lipstick I will be trying other hues from this line. I'm impressed. I only reapplied this lipstick twice today in an 8 hour period and that is only after eating.
I'm obsessed, which is unusual because I usually shy away from mature deep burgundy lipsticks, because I feel like they are the traditional colors that I "should" wear. If you are dark or brown skinned this is a perfect lipstick if you can't or don't want to wear the blue reds or orange reds.
Pros: Lasting formula,softens and moisturizes lips,contains vitamins E and A
Cons: Stains lips something fierce!

Janet Collection: Full Lace Wig: Joan (FS4/27/30)

Joan is a very pretty super curly synthetic lace front wig, however the hair that is on the lace in the front is not the same as the hair that is in the rest of the wig, also the tracks are visible, not much hair to work with if you are planning to put it in an up do. The color looks more like a 1b/30 instead of a 4/27/30. After I did my video on this wig and went to take it off I noticed that she had already started to tangle as well. That is no bueno! Premium synthetic fiber?? hmm..I don't think so. Napping and tangling already out of the package, unacceptable. There is only parting in the very front even though there is an acceptable amount of lace front temple to temple. I would wear her out a couple of times but I can see she is gonna need some serious work to wear her, meaning some sort of wig conditioner before wearing to keep her from looking likes a rat's nest by the end of the night.
Rating: 2 out of 5
Recommendations: Don't buy this full lace synthetic wig
