An Honest Review Of Fenty Beauty By Rihanna

An Honest Review Of Fenty Beauty By Rihanna

She may have unveiled it awhile ago, but it still leaves me shook.


Let me get something straight, I'm a hard working girl on a budget; however, I can still happily afford some makeup products sold at stores like Sephora and Ulta. When it comes to buying makeup, call me basic, I don't buy anything unless it's Jeffree Star approved. Lately, I've been getting sick of my old foundation (Too Faced's Born This Way liquid foundation). Also, side note, I understand that Born This Way may not be Jeffree Star approved, but I used to be very loyal to it.

When I watched Jeffree Star review Fenty's products, I was amazed. It all looked so good and beautiful. So naturally, I went out and bought a couple of items from Fenty to try them out. The two products I bought were the full-bodied foundation brush and, of course, the liquid foundation.

The first day I wore the foundation, it was without primer or setting spray; in fact, the only other makeup I wore that day was mascara. The reason for this was because I knew I had a full day of labor-intensive work ahead of me; I just wanted to try out my new foundation. Not only did it go on as light as air, but it blended in so well with my skin I had to do almost no blending with the foundation brush. Also, the brush itself is like a Godsend. It appeared to blend even better than my sponge.

Throughout my work day, I noticed the foundation was staying on pretty well. This was surprising because, not only did I skip primer and setting spray, I also applied a very thin layer of the foundation. It didn't even cover my entire face. Also, remember that my work day was labor intensive and outside in the cold. I didn't bring my makeup with me so I couldn't do any touch-ups. By the end of the day, most of the foundation didn't' seem to be there and my face was almost entirely red from the wind and the cold. Although that's a little disappointing, it wasn't until the last hour or two of my eight hour work day that the foundation even budged. To me, that's pretty impressive. No other foundation I have ever had has lasted that long, not even Born This Way. It may not seem like it, but that's a total win.

The next day, I wore the Fenty foundation, applied with the foundation brush, again. This time, I used it with a priming and setting spray. During that day, I wound up taking an unexpected trip to an indoor pool. Unlike most people who just chill at pools and don't really have fun, I go ham at pools; I'll show everyone my sick flips underwater. So, of course, that's exactly what I did despite the fact that I had makeup on. When I got out of the pool I checked a mirror and noticed that my foundation was still there and intact. My mascara was another story, but this foundation is insane. It survived my laps in the pool as well as quite a few hours of just normal life beforehand.

If you asked me what I would rate Fenty foundation on a scale of one to ten, it gets a solid 9 (only a 9/10 because, no matter what, no foundation is perfect and therefore I will not rate one as such. But Rihanna came pretty dang close). Rihanna, you have me quaking in my socks. I cannot wait to try the highlighters and lip products.

Do yourself a favor and go splurge on this foundation, it's 100% worth it.

10 Reasons Why You Need Crocs In Your Life

I don't understand why you haven't bought a pair yet.

Crocs have the perception of being the world's ugliest shoe, or sometimes you hear wearing them is "social suicide". Well, I'm here to tell you everything you've heard is wrong.

1. They go with everything

Personally, after finding the perfect outfit to wear to class, I struggle finding the right shoe to wear. I think about all the walking I'm going to have to do and I always grab my Crocs. Whether I'm wearing jeans, yoga pants or even sweatpants, Crocs are always my go-to. I mean, look at these people, doesn't look like social suicide to me. Looks pretty damn good.

2. They're extremely comfortable

If you ask anyone who owns a pair of Crocs, I guarantee you they'll tell you how comfortable these shoes are. It's like walking on memory foam or a cloud, whatever anaolgy you want to use.

3. The color range is fantastic

When you go to most sites to shop, there's a color list. Crocs gives you a color wheel. A FLIPPIN' wheel. Not to mention the bunch of patterns you can choose from like, zebra, leapord, camo, and more.

4. They come with their own accessories

Don't even get my started on the little accessories that can be added to every pair of Crocs, called Jibbitz. They're like little pins that bring out your inner child. Decorate your shoes with Disney princesses or even Star Wars.

Yes, you can get Mater on your shoe.

5. They'll be your best friend in college

This may be my own personally opinion and I may be biased, but with all the walking I do on college campus, these shoes are the best purchase I've ever made. They never leave my feet smelling like death or in pain, which I think is pretty amazing.

6. They can be worn all year round

I personally would wear my classic Crocs all year round but some people may not like that idea. That's why you should know they make a variety of different styles like sandals, wedges, boots and even FLEECE lined ones. Yes I said fleece.

7. You don't have to be an adult to wear them

Maybe it's just a girl thing, but I hated that I couldn't wear my mom's 5 inch stiletto heels when I was a kid, but with Crocs that's not a problem and my dreams aren't crushed.

8. They're a unisex shoe

This life-changing experience doesn't have to be just for girls. Guys, if you want to lounge in your sweats all day, throw some Crocs on. Heck, they even make boots that don't empty out our pockets and make your feet stink, so doesn't hurt giving it a shot.

9. They give back to their community

Crocs created Crocs Cares, which has donated over 3 million pairs of shoes to people in need around the world.

10. They can be worn in water

Nothing grinds my gears more than when I go to the beach and have to take off my shoes, that just get covered in sand anyways. An added plus to Crocs is they can be worn in water.

Most of this shocking and extremely awesome information was found on the Crocs website, where you should go because I know after reading this, you really want a pair.

I Bought My First 'Big Girl' Purse And, Damn, I Feel Like A Badass

If you see me around with my Kate Spade purse feeling like a badass, mind ya business.


To say that I am a big believer in the phrase, "treat yo self" is a complete understatement and anyone who knows me knows just how serious I encourage it to everyone.

Over spring break, I decided to take some of my advice and made two big investments.

The first one was my Canon DSLR. But we all knew that one was coming because I had been saving up my paychecks for months since last year and was ready to invest in something that would ultimately help me perfect a skill I had been wanting to learn for a while.

The other investment was a Kate Spade purse that even caught me off guard because I didn't exactly expect myself to want a purse. But you know that feeling of not knowing you needed something until you saw it? Well, that was me and from the moment I saw it, I knew there was no going back. So, I went into the store and dropped the money on the purse and just didn't look back at the impulsive decision I had just made, which was actually going against my New Year's resolution of being smarter with my money.

But you know what, treat yo self.

And if you expected me to feel bad about my purse, surprise! I don't feel bad one bit.

When I tell you I feel good about my purse and about myself with my purse, I am being so freaking honest. Now, I can't even picture myself without my purse. It might sound stupid, but it actually makes every outfit look better and makes me feel like a bad bitch.

Like the Carrie Bradshaw, the "Sex and the City" fashion queen, once said, "Balls are to men what purses are to women. It's just a little bag, but we feel naked in public without it."

So, if you see me around with my Kate Spade purse feeling like a badass, mind ya business.
