My Top Five…

I am a makeup/beauty/magazine junkie. Every now and then I will put up a post that will turn off any male readers and this is one of them, sorry. If you are into fashion/make up then you know September is one of the biggest month’s for all things glam and just about every magazine is packed with information to feed my addiction. As such I was inspired to bring up my own mini post on some of my own favorite products. Choosing just five is difficult but in order to keep myself in check I must limit myself. So here are my tried and true beauty products that I will invest in time again!

  1. Miss Jessies Curly Buttercreme: I have naturally curly hair and therefore it is as dry as a dessert. This stuff will make my hair less tumbleweed and more luscious. It’s not cheap (surprising since Targets sells it) but its worth my dime every time!
  2. Benefits They’re Real: When the Sephora lady told me that this mascara was the best thing out, I had my doubts but I put it on and my lashes looked awesome. Way better than my current Maybeline Falsies. It’s pricey (around $21) but worth the investment if you love that false lash look.
  3. Dr. Brandt Pores No More: anything in this line really. I did some major research and every review/advice pointed to this line. I have VERY oily skin and I can’t stand it! I put this on and no oily skin messing up my make up or making my skin feel iky. Another pricey affair (about $45) but if you have extremely oily skin sometimes you gotta make that investment.
  4. Bare Escentuals: Again for an oily skined gal, mineral is the way to go. It’s not heavy but fully covers and it last a LONG time because the ingridents are more natural so I don’t have to toss it as quickly.
  5. Chi Ion flat iorn– I’ve had mine forever (and I want it to last forever since I dropped a pretty penny for mine well before it got the hype it rightly deserves and other lines started making them for way less). As I stated before, since I have natural, unrelaxed hair, having a chi is literally the best thing since sliced bread for me. When I blow out my hair I looke like Rudi Huxtable but this tames my hair so it looks relaxed and blows in the breeze. Love it!

Any favorite products that are a must for you?


  1. I too have a Chi hair straightener and I love it ! I used to own a Hai ceramic straightener, but blew that out in Europe.

    I also use Pureology shampoos and conditioners.

    The Chi and Pureology products are very expensive, but I was lucky enough to have my hairstylist by them for me at wholesale prices, and I just paid her back.

    Mascaras are all the same for me, I use the cheapest out there, but I do splurge on foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear)


  2. My go to standard for my hair is Blue Magic Indian Hemp hair conditioning. I am going to marry that stuff. Also NYX eyebrow pencils in brown and black. L'Oreal blush and Vaseline Cocoa Butter lotion. Everyday. All day.


  3. I might have to check out the Double Wear, it got great reviews. And Charlee, I heard hemp is awesome for natural hair, that and morrocan oil is on my list for my hair!
