Brown Girls Rejoice! Your Bronzer Has Finally Arrived.

I spied this baby today when I went to Sephora to pick up the Teint Fusion foundation. Some wonderful soul named Paige, had given me a birthday gift card, so I was able to get them both. Plus we both wanted to check out the foundation, she has the pale girl problems to my brown girl bemoaning when it come to makeup. I’ll have a review of that foundation coming up soon, but I must say, Sephora has definitely been impressing me all year starting with the Marsala debut.

The Only Colour Correcting Palette Every Brown Girl Needs.

Colour correcting is all the rage. For newbies anyway. Chances are, if you’re a brown girl, you have in the past had hyperpigmentation spots that you scoured the interwebs diligently trying to find a way to camouflage. In that search you’ve probably come across makeup tips on how to do that, or mute the yellow in your skin tone and other things like that.

Somehow or the other this year, or late last year, colour correcting became a thing. So much so that all the the major cosmetics brands have debuted palettes to address colour correcting. Tarte has one, so does Stila, Becca has individual colour pots, and I’m sure in the coming months there will be many others.

I gave every last one of those others the side eye and kept on trucking with my BH colour wheel, cause if we’re going to be keeping it real (and I always do) all those palettes focus on colour correcting for light skin tones. So once again, if you’re medium-dark to darker skinned, you’ve been left out of the conversation entirely, which is truly ironic considering that darker skin is usually the one more in need of colour correction due to uneven tones and hyperpigmentation. Then Sephora and Pantone went and became super heroes.

Anti-Holiday 2016: Exploring Sephora’s Complexion Line

Purely on the flimsiest of whims, I walked into Sephora and walked out with a bunch of their new complexion products. The complexion line has recently been revamped, I tried the blushes earlier this year and loved them, so I was really enthusiastic that the rest would be great as well. I picked up two of the Bright Future Serum Concealer and one of the Serum Correctors, and the new (relatively) 10 Hour Wear Perfect Foundation. The one thing that I didn’t get was the Micro Smooth Baked Foundation Face Powder. It’s supposedly a dupe for the Mac Mineralise Skin Finish, but they didn’t have a shade for me, I was in between shades.

Holiday 2016: Sephora Collection

Sephora’s holiday sets are as pretty as they are prolific this year. These two babies were available for early access to VIB and VIB Rouge so I was able to snag them before they went on general sale. In addition to these two, there is another face palette, a blush palette, lip sets, lip and eye pencils and a host of other things. Some of which I picked up on Sunday morning from the website.

I had gotten most of the Sephora Holiday items last year and was pretty much completely disappointed in all of it since it all lacked pigmentation. Happy to say that’s not the case this year.
