As of today, I am no longer blogging under this platform… Sad, I know… but I have now redirected to wordpress.org so that I can better express myself and begin a new journey while exploring my freelance makeup artistry!  The site is still a work in progress, and while it’s nothing perfect, it will come along with time! Go ahead and check it out: www.bellamechelle.com.

I recently visited ULTA beauty to get some products to jumpstart my professional makeup kit… I ended up spending $263 and luckily, I also walked out with a ton of free samples! I got a Brit beauty bag from Pop Sugar, two skincare items from Benefit, and a Mini Ribbon lipgloss from Pop Sugar. I decided to do this review because this gloss has the ultimate moisturizing ingredient: jojoba oil! I’ve mainly heard about this oil being used on hair, but because of the great reviews I decided to try it.

So when you open it up there are three “ribbons” of gloss: one is red, another pink, and the last is a champagne color. My tin is called Peony Pink. The smell kind of reminds of the hairgrease my mom used to use on my when I was younger, but no worries… It doesn’t taste like that! You’re supposed to apply the gloss with your finger, but make sure you are aware of WHEN you’re applying it. Your hands always have germs on them so wash before application or throwaway the gloss within a month or so. Overall, I give this product a 4/5. It doesn’t make me want to throw my Chapstick, but it’s giving it some strong competition!

It’s late… I created this look while watching the Bad Girls Club reunion… Was anyone else mad that Jade came up on stage trying to run it??? #HAVEASEATMAAM … I just don’t get it!

Any.Way.  Just thought I’d share my creation with you.  And this is the nicest lip I’ve probably ever worn!  It’s a light pink liner and lipstick with a shimmery gold shadow patted on top.  Check it out…

**And for the record… I had my sister put on the lashes… I accidently grabbed two DIFFERENT ones.  -_- Nothing I could do once the glue dried… :).

You must be at this event… go ahead and RSVP NOW!

Thanks to Erin from Scandalous Beauty, I found out about a contest that Target is having… I have no idea how far I will go in this but I figured I’d give it a shot!  Here’s my vid:

So I went to Target yesterday, and no matter what, I ALWAYS make sure to check out the cosmetics section (mainly NP Set, NP Plixi, and Sonia Kashuk).  I’ve been looking for a new foundation because my Revlon liquid has SPF and makes my face look a little washed out on camera.  Fiending for a brand other than drugstore, I found this NP Set Memory Foundation on clearance for $7.  It was originally $28, so I decided to give it a try.  I tried the tester, and it looked pretty good but I knew I had to wait until I got home to get the full effect.  After putting it on my face on top of my concealer, I loved it!  It’s really a tinted moisturizer but it acts just like a foundation.  Doesn’t make your face look cakey, looks natural, and also “recreates younger, dewier skin” which is a factor I’ve been looking for for a while now.  The label says A blend of vitamin E, Vitamin C and seaweed extract to nourish and protect the complexion. FOR THE WIN.  I needed this for sure!  I purchased this product in Medium Dark, and you can find these products at Target (they have an amazing line) or at the official Napoleon Perdis Set website.
