Product Review: BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream in Chestnut

23 October 2015

Um...for those of us non-makeup folks who do not understand how to apply foundation and do not understand why there are so many options, etc., this is THE PERFECT solution! I don't wear foundation because I do not know how to color match and because there are very few folks whose makeup I've seen in person and thought it looked completely natural.  

This product looks like your natural skin, but better. It's slightly dewy, which will come in handy in the winter months coming up (I have it in Chestnut 09). I top it with a little bit of the Warmth All-Over Face Color.  It takes me 30 seconds in the morning and I'm out the door! I have received soooo many compliments from people about the glow that I have and how my skin looks simply beautiful. I highly recommend this to everyone!!!!!!

From Beauty Blogging to....Couponing?!?! has been awhile since I've posted anything.  There has been so much going on and I've kinda gotten away from beauty blogging because I don't buy many products anymore.  I have an Ipsy subscription and cannot tell you the last time I used anything out of one of my bags.  My passion is now...couponing!!! I am nowhere near extreme, but hopefully one day! I love clipping coupons, sorting them, making my lists, etc. It is one of the best stress relievers that I've discovered outside of working out. I do not plan on turning this into a coupon blog because there are so many of them, but I may drop a few easy tips that anyone can follow and some sites that are extremely helpful, as well as people and groups to follow on Facebook and Instagram. Below are just a few pictures of some of my finds.  To keep up with me, follow me on Instagram: TheStacyNicole

Product Review: Eau Thermale Avène: Eau Thermale

I received this spray in one of my Ipsy bags.  I've used their face wash in the past at the recommendation of my dermatologist and loved it! There really aren't any cons about this product. I actually like it a lot better than MAC Fix+ or the rosewater+gylcerin mix that I normally use because it doesn't leave my face sticky to the touch and isn't shinny. It leaves the skin feeling amazingly moisturized! Definitely a must add to the line up!

Protective Styles: Crochet Braids Part 2

July 25, 2014

Last year I wrote a blog post about crochet braids. At the time I was using Bobbi Boss Afro Twist hair, but have since tried a few different types of hair.  One of my favorites is the Nubian Naffy Braid.  This is the most natural synthetic hair ever! I love it because it blends in seamlessly with my natural hair and allows for some leave out.  It can also be flat ironed straight, but not bone straight like relaxed hair.  If you're in the Raleigh/Durham area, check out my stylist SJ Protective Styles
