I am here for these lip gloss honey! I was sent the Urban Decay Hi Fi Shine Lip Gloss collection and baby. It really is bomb. Now, I’ve had this collection sitting on my desk for months, YES, I said months. It honestly got lost in the pile of packages and this past Sunday I cleaned and organized my office to prepare for my December beauty giveaways happening Here. So, I stumbled across this and got so excited. I mean its lip gloss, you can NEVER go wrong with a lip gloss and this collection did not disappoint. I was of course eyeing all the nude lip colors but then I decided lets swatch the entire collection. So that’s what I did in today’s post. All 20 colors will be shown on my lips and honestly, this is the first collection where I love almost ALL the lip colors. Now that’s saying a lot.

If there is one thing I must have in my makeup bag its facial highlighters. It’s like whip cream on top of your salted Carmel latte. It just needs to happen. Over the years I have collected almost every color highlighter known to man. My favorite highlighters of all time would have to be from Becca Cosmetics. I legit have every single color and a few in backup. Since I am an avid makeup collector sometimes I tend to overdo it when I shop and thats currently the major issue I’m facing in my office. I promise to be more organized in 2019.
Any who, I have been so fortunate to work with some amazing brands this year and Becca Cosmetics is one of them. Since I have been added to their PR list I am regularly updated on new releases. But see the thing is, I already have ALL their products. Don’t judge my life choices lol. I have about two maybe even three of each of their highlighters and I’m not ashamed lol. Today I wanted to give my readers an opportunity to get some new goodies in time for the holidays. So, with that being said, one lucky winner will win the entire collection of Becca highlighter. Yes, all four of the original colors.
This giveaway is so simple to win. All you have to do is the following.

Aussie Miracle Curl Collection
No matter where I go I will always be a hairstylist. I just can’t seem to escape it. Even on vacation I’m washing, deep conditioning, and a styling me my girls hair. Since we’ve been on vacation I’ve had to wash their hair everyday due to the pool water which is not normal for us. We typically stick to a once a week schedule. I was happy that this vacation I was fully prepared to maintain both me and my baby’s hair with the Aussie Miracle Curl collection.
Aussie Miracle Curls Collection is designed to provide moisture and protection for effortlessly gorgeous, moist curls! Great for all hair types who want deep conditioning, shine and moisture.
I was fortunate to receive the collection in the mail and family vacation was the perfect opportunity to put these products to the test. The Miracle Curl collection features seven different products catered to curly and coiled hair. Although I received the entire collection I only had the opportunity to test a few of the items to give you a thorough review.
MIRACLE CURLS SHAMPOO:
On a scale of 1 to 5 I would rate this Shampoo a 4. I was able to get a great lather with one application of product. I felt the shampoo gave me a through cleansing on my hair and scalp without leaving a residue or film on hair.
MIRACLE CURLS CONDITIONER:
I give this conditioner a 3 out of 5. Mainly because it was a instant conditioner and I typically skip over these types of conditioners all together. Every time I wash my hair I always deep condition or I invest in the hair mask and co wash products. I did also use this conditioner on my daughters without any problems. This product works best on loosely coiled hair.
MIRACLE CURLS CO-WASH:
My go to product this vacation. I loved that I was able to wash there hair daily without any issues and still maintain there curl patterns. This was a must have for me this past week. Complete time saver.
3 MINUTE MIRACLE MOIST:
This is the product I underestimated the most. I didn’t think I would notice and conditioning properties in 3 minutes. Boy was I was wrong… Truly hate saying that lol. I did notice a difference after using this product in comparison to the daily conditioner. My hair was softer and the curls bounced back after detangling.
3 MINUTE MIRACLE CURLS:
This product I did not have the opportunity to use however, I will update as soon as I try it.
MIRACLE CURLS LEAVE-IN DETANGLING MILK:
Baby!!! This is LIFE. My girls are four and six with tightly coiled hair and were swimming in the pool all day. So just imagine the tears I had to experience when detangling their hair. This hair milk helped me tremendously. After creating four sections I would apply the milk and SLOWLY comb out their curls. Worked like a charm.
MIRACLE CURLS CRÈME PUDDING:
Also another product I underestimated. This had just the right amount of slip to twist my hair as well as my girls. It did not leave my hair hard and gave me the perfect amount of definition. I wish this product came in a larger size with a pump. it would make it so much easier to use.

Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick Collection
When I think of a beauty brand who is very innovative Smashbox cosmetics is always at the top of the list. I had the pleasure of swatching the Always On Liquid lipstick collection and I would say I was surprised and wowed by every lipstick color in this collection. This collection features 25 new lip colors in varies shades and finishes. In total you have 6 matte shades, 7 nude shades which are also matte, and 12 metallic shades. Needless to say this is a complete collection with every color you can imagine. One thing I would like to mention about Smashbox is that there lipstick formula never dries out my lips. As you will see shortly, I had absolutely no trouble swatching all 25 lipstick shades back to back. If you are a avid liquid lipstick wearer you know how challenging this can be. In today’s video tutorial I will show you how each of the new lipstick colors wear on a woman of color. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what shades may suit your skin tone even if your not a woman of color. This swatch video is a great way to see how the lipsticks actually swatch on someone outside of the swatches you see inside of the retail stores. You will be able to see the shine as well as the finish of each lipstick color. I hope you enjoyed today’s video tutorial and as always follow me on my other social media platforms I am Chimere Nicole on YouTube, Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter. Happy swatching!
