If you have been following my blog for awhile, you may remember that I am a redbook online magazine contributor. Recently they sent me a few products to test out and I want to share what I think of them with you today! This post is sponsored by redbook, but as always, all opinions are my own.

I know it may seem like brown girls don’t need bronzer, but I am here to tell you that we do! I’m using “need” loosely, but I personally feel like bronzers really help complete any look. If you wear foundation (especially medium to full coverage), bronzers help add that dimension and warmth back to your face so that it doesn’t look like you are wearing a mask. If you want to the bronzers that have been in heavy rotation for the past few months, keep reading!
If you are in tune at all with the online beauty community, then I’m sure that you have seen a million blog posts, Instagram posts, and YouTube videos about the new Fenty Beauty line by Rihanna. Hopefully you’re not too sick of them yet, because I have a video to add to the mix. Check it out below!
Did you or will you be picking up anything from Fenty Beauty?

NARS has been one of my favorite brands for awhile now, so when I saw that they were coming out with new liquid lipsticks (finally!), I had to try them! The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigments launched a little over a month ago with 20 shades ranging from nudes to black! There were so many colors that I wanted to try, but I narrowed it down to 5. If you want to know what I thought of them, keep reading!
Why do foundations now have to have a name with 10 words in it??? The new Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Foundation is definitely no exception! I picked this up in the shade 5W1 Bronze to test out. As a new addition to the Double Wear line, it is supposed to give a lightweight but long lasting coverage. If you have been following my blog for awhile, you will know that this sounds right up my alley! I tested this out for you in the video below, so make sure to watch that. If you are short on time and want to quickly know what I thought of the foundation, check out my pros and cons below.
Foundation is one of my number 1 makeup loves! I love trying different ones and because of that, I have found quite a few that I’m fond of. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to figure out what foundation will hold up in the hot weather and manage to still feel good on the skin. Check out my top foundation picks for the summer! For reference, my skin is pretty normal these days with most of my oil being in my t-zone.
