Tuesday Treats

total

Hands up if you’re girl and love your treats (sweet or otherwise) to come in multiples! You too? Great!

I’m really not good at buying just one thing, I swear! I’ll go out to buy one phone-case and come back with two, only varying in colour. I once bought 3 pairs of the same shoe. (Still one of my best buys to date!) In fact, I got my ears pierced so my friends would have to buy me doubles if they ever thought of getting me jewellery! It’s so bad, the list is endless.

But, I digress. This wasn’t about my shopping habits. Recently, I decided that there were a couple of things that were missing in my little beauty bag. So I got to researching, and buying! The research part was to figure out what brand to get that I trusted, was cheap enough for my not-deep-at-all pockets and worked relatively well for dark skin.

I swear even when I google stuff like lipstick for dark/black women, the results I get are for lightskins like Beyoncé, Angela Simmons…..dude, I’m not even sure Gabrielle Union is my shade or lighter. It’s a huge gamble to buy colours online when you don’t know what it’ll look like on you. But it’s a gamble I’m starting to take, until I can get access to some of these store-fronts that cater to DARKER skins. (It’s not a thing in China, even at the M.A.C and Sephora stores)

So what did I end up getting? A bunch of lip stuff, and a brown eyebrow pencil.
