What I’m Tryin’…

Have you all heard of BB cream?  I guess I’ve been out of the loop for a while but I’m just discovering this product that has everyone raving.  I did a little research and this is what I found:

“the cream was initially used to protect skin after laser procedures and surgery, while also providing light coverage.  Introduced to South Korea and Japan in the 1980s, BB cream has been named "the secret of Korean actresses" and has been heavily endorsed by Korean celebrities, which gained it large exposure in these Asian markets.”

Here’s my experience with a BB Cream that I purchased by Maybelline.

 

The photos below are when I first applied it in the morning before heading to work.

The pics below are when I got off from work about 10 hours later.

What it said it would do:

Be a “Skin Perfector”, “Blurs imperfections, Brightens, Evens skin tone, Soothes, Hydrates, Enhances, Protects with SPF 30, 0% Oils and heavy ingredients, For Instant Skin Now WOW!”

What I wanted it to do:

Be a light alternative to a heavy foundation, give a nice glow as a primer would, be quick to apply, match my skin tone.

What it did do:

It did “even skin tone”, “moisturize”, “brighten”, and give good coverage while remaining light.  However, it has a white glow under flash photography.  I really liked it when I looked in the mirror but when I took my photos, it was disappointing.  But I’m going to give it a few more chances to see if I can tweak it to look better under lights.

What I’m Lovin’…

Did I tell you guys that one of my wishes finally came true?  I finally got to see my celebrity twin, my hair crush, my favorite artist, my best friend in my own little world perform live!  Oh yes ma’am!  I saw my girl Jill Scott perform live at Chastain Park in Atlanta last month and she tore it DOWN!  (of course)

I was in there just tweetin’, screamin’, singin’ & dancin’!  She really gives a great show!  I love how she told us that we paid too much money for her to be running backstage and changing outfits every twenty minutes!  She stood there for about 2 hours straight and sang all of my favorite songs!

What I’m Wearin’…

Hey sweeties!  Just a casual outfit worn on a night out to see Sparkle.  Have you guys seen it yet?  I liked it but not as much as I loved the original.  Whitney Houston role was its’ only redeeming quality.  The role of “Sister” was dynamite too!  Let me know what you thought of it!

These pics aren’t the best.  They were taken in the dark in the parking lot of the movie theater but here ya go…!

What I’m Tryin’…

While catching up on my favorite blogs, I cam across these babies and I AM IN LOVE!  I first saw them on Seed of Style’s blog and I knew I had to have one!  It would be so perfect with my updos!

Most of the photos above are from sellers on Etsy that were selling theirs for $25.00 and above.  But…..you know the frugalista in me told me to hit up Ebay!

 

I caught an auction that was ending in a few hours and now I’m the proud owner of this feather ear cuff for $1.04 + $3.00 shipping & handling!
