Product Review: Living Nature Vitalising Cleanser

Product Review: Living Nature Vitalising Cleanser

Sometimes my love for glycolic peels, scrubbing pads, and acne-drying products can send my acne-prone skin into over-drive. Though I’m not convinced to (ever) stop incessantly using my skin brightening products, I will allow my skin some time to calm. Living Nature Vitalising Cleanser was exactly what I needed to reduce the aggravation my skin […]

Bona Fide Face: My Top 11 Must-Have Beauty Products of 2011

I must admit, I’m most loyal to any beauty product that works regardless of its name or prestige. I want to see results. And like most of my fellow microwave-mindset generation, I want results, like, yesterday. The older I get, though, the more I realize that consistency is the best answer to any skin issue […]

Glow Getters: Get the Look—Thandie Newton’s Glowing Skin

Thandie Newton is best known for her big-screen roles —racing Tom Cruise in "Mission Impossible II", the disgruntled wife of Will Smith in "Happyness" or the  ghostly antagonist in "Beloved"—however, we can't help but admire her glow. Whether wearing barely-there makeup or flaunting full-face maquillage, Thandie glows.   Most recently chosen as the spokesperson for Olay Total Effects […]

Get the Look:  Big Hair Queen Tracee Ellis Ross

Tracee Ellis Ross is the queen of big hair. She’s gorgeous, a talented actress, and fashion forward. But her natural, healthy, perfectly tousled hair doesn’t have to fight for top recognition amongst these attributes. Hands down, her big hair wins. After all, Tracee gets it from her momma, the iconic Diana Ross. Tracee owns a head of […]

Get the Look: Corinne Bailey Rae—Nude Face

Get the Look: Corinne Bailey Rae—Nude Face

While the nude face is a major beauty trend for Fall 2011, notable nude faces—Lisa Bonet, Solange and Tracee Ellis Ross and Corinne Bailey Rae—are the nudist trendsetters.  A "Nude Attitude" is nothing new in the makeup world—it's  adored as much as the latest red bottoms.  The best aspect of wearing a nude face? Everyone […]

Bona Fide Face Product Review: Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder—Bronze

Bona Fide Face Product Review: Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder—Bronze

I have a full blown fall-out with fall each year because my brown skin tends to lose a bit of its richness during its cool arrival. When my brown skin tone fluctuates in its color range, matching a foundation is a difficult task. Instead of buying a new makeup palette for each season, I have […]

Bona Fide Face Product Review: Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Luminous Foundation

Bona Fide Face Product Review:  Vapour Organic Beauty Atmosphere Luminous Foundation

I love makeup. I don’t love to look made up. From diminishing unsightly under eye circles to perfecting pore-less looking skin, my makeup must be a laborious masquerader without the pancake effect. As a habitual pimple picker, having the right foundation to misrepresent my ill habit is a prerequisite for occupying space in my makeup […]

Product Review-Makeup: Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Stain—Peaceful

Product Review-Makeup: Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Stain—Peaceful

  I have big lips. That’s not insecurity or regret speaking, that’s honesty: my lips are not petite. So, I’m paraticular about what I put on my natural attention seekers. Any wrong texture, color, or consistency and they go from full and sexy to wrong and sloppy. I am also a nude lip afficianado.  If […]

Get the Look: Beyonce’s Pregnancy Glow

Get the Look:  Beyonce’s Pregnancy Glow

Blinging Beauty Beyoncé graced the VMAs sans her typical club-snug, bedazzled frocks, leaving “Sasha Fierce” MIA. Dripping in emeralds and diamonds, Mrs. Shawn Carter was nearly fully-covered in a bias cut tangerine gown, only baring a lone shoulder. The ensemble was perfectly complimented by her delicate, sweet-faced, barely-there makeup. When Beyoncé proudly cradled her tummy, […]

Product Review: Maya Water Facial Mist Organic White Tea

Product Review: Maya Water Facial Mist Organic White Tea

Complete luxuriousness. Maya Water Facial Mist claims are colorfully melodramatic, diluted with a slew of miracles for contained water —foreign, organic, nitrogen induced, white tea enhanced, preventer/repairer of sun damage, and a fighter of skin discoloration and wrinkles. Uncertain if this water, I mean aqua, lives up to all these claims; but, for certain, I […]

Circumspect Sunday: Donyale Luna—The Outer Gift and The Inner Gunk

Circumspect Sunday: Donyale Luna—The Outer Gift and The Inner Gunk

Donyale Luna, born Peggy Anne Freeman, was the first Black supermodel.  At 6’2”, her altitudinous height was perfectly accompanied by larger-than-life almond shaped eyes, a lanky but svelte frame, and gawking gorgeous looks—apparently too hard to pass up, even in the thick of racism, she was sought out to be the “it” girl. Discovered in […]

Product Review: Perricone MD Skin Clear Hydrator

Product Review:  Perricone MD Skin Clear Hydrator

Anyone with  acne-prone skin flinches at the thought of a wet product beyond H2O touching their skin. I know this fear all too well—ao many times have I tried to oil-pat-blend in a dry patch while getting dolled up the next morning…um, not a pretty sight. Many dry scabs later, I now know all skin […]
