REVIEW/DEMO: Benefit They’re Real! Push-up Liner

As requested, I’ll be reviewing the new ‘Benefit They’re Real! Push-up Liner’. It’s a gel eyeliner pen that was recently released at the price point of $24 USD. I first heard about this product at this very secretive event at the Roosevelt Hotel. It was a release party for this new product for bloggers and the media. What caught my attention was the innovating design that was put into this liner. The AccuFlexTM tip is something I’ve never seen before, and it makes the world of difference when you’re applying gel liner. The tip hugs your lash line and it gives you immense control and flexibility on design.

I still have to get used to it when it comes to lining the inner lash line. It’s been coming out uneven the first few times that I have applied it, but for the most part, I love it! I’ve been wearing intense cat eyes for the past few weeks and have gotten tons of compliments on my liner. It’s also great for this hot weather because it doesn’t flake and does not transfer on the lid.

In the video, I’m also demonstrating the removal process. Benefit also came out with a new eye makeup remover called ‘They’re Real! Remover’. It’s a very gentle yet powerful creamy gel formula that easily removes the liner. This product is coming soon and it’s valued at $18 USD. Using any oil based makeup remover or coconut oil will do the job though.

My ideal price point for this push-up liner would be $15.00. What do you guys think?


Let me know your feedback on this product either on the comment section here, or on my video. The more we communicate the more we can all help each other out.

Thank you for stopping by!

Throwback Festival 2014

I can’t remember the last time that that Jesse and I had an actual date, alone. Needless to say, we were super excited for Saturday to get here. Believe it or not, I actually was a bit nervous about our date. As soon as we woke up, Jesse and I started scrambling trying to pick up around the house and make breakfast. And to make matters more intense, Jesse still needed to get a haircut (he had a baby fro).

Our plans were to have lunch and be out the door at 1:30pm, but we didn’t leave until 3pm. The festival was in San Diego too and the 405 traffic was horrible that Saturday afternoon. We made it to my mother-in-law’s house around 4pm so we had about 3 hours to be in our seats (event started at 7).

The traffic didn’t pick up one bit all the way to Orange County. Jesse then decided he was going to take a shortcut, and hopped on the 73 freeway even though we didn’t have the Fastrak. It definitely paid off because we got to SD in under 2 hours, and still had time to hit up Carl’s Jr…lol

Upon arriving at the festival, we received our green wristbands with our free drink vouchers, and headed to our seats. I wasn’t expecting such a big crowd. The DJs were awesome. They really had the place jumping. We seriously had the best seats in the house. I can’t believe Dj Quik shook my hand. He was the best artist of the night. Following Quik, was E-40, then Bone Thugs. I was really hoping Too Short would make a surprise appearance. The show was still fun, especially because I was with my man spending some much needed quality time.

I hope you guys enjoyed this BP. See you guys later!

Outfit of the Day: Thrifted Safari Top Styled

Today I wanted to share a look based around a crazy, safari printed top from my last Thrift Store Haul. My style has been evolving with me and for some odd reason I was very attracted to this shirt. And just like I said, it sparked plenty of conversation. LOL. I paired it with my favorite cargo pants I bought at AE last summer. Cargo’s are traditional in the safari so I figured they would be the best fit for my top!

I’m also working on a new fashion video on how to style metallic and I’m featuring another thrift store find. Can’t wait to share it!

Good Morning America and Beauty Con 2014 #NYC

This past trip to NYC was amazing! It was a long trip, but well worth it nonetheless. I was pretty busy running around the city from meeting to meeting and in between that time, I made an appearance on Good Morning America. Live television, guys!! Watch me below and let me know what you think. I believe i conquered that fear :)

I was pretty nervous as you can imagine and had terrible anxiety leading up to the event. What I told myself was that if God didn’t think I could do it, then he wouldn’t have blessed me with the opportunity. I also have more confidence in myself since reading The Confidence Code and really understanding what fear is and what it can do to a person. Trust me, I know exactly what fear can do and I can tell you that fear is not real! I just focus on being me and if people don’t like that, well who cares! Just being honest here. I’ve spent too much time and energy trying to please people who at the end still don’t understand or like me. So why bother. I love being me and that’s all that matters. That attitude has helped me so much in my life in these past few months. I’ve seen major transformations.

Anyway, below is the picture diary of my adventure in the city, enjoy!

(Thank you to everyone who came out to my meet and greet! I hate that they’re always so rushed. I wish I had more time to talk and get to know each other. Love you all so much! I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for your support. So grateful for all of you!)

Outfit of the day: Balboa Park

This outfit that I wore to an evening out at the park with my two guys was based around this awesome skirt I bought for a few dollars at the thrift store. It’s no secret that I love a great deal and that’s why thrifting is one of my favorite things to do. Not only for clothes, but for home decor and furniture as well. I really need to start my own series on that subject. This whole outfit was under $50! Marvelous right?!
