Comeback: Clapback & Then Some

It’s been a few weeks since I published a post. Charge it to the game, life, my espresso machine going AWOL, and simply trying to establish my New Normal. I’m just figuring it all out as I go along. Same shit most of y’all are doing! 

Anywho...the dust has settled on the holiday season, the New Year has commenced,and by now y’all are out here crushing those goals and resolutions put inTO place a few weeks ago. Me....I’m just trying to stay awake during the business day:) 

I didn’t make any New Year resolutions, but I did commit to decluttering all of my stuff (clothes, shoes, bags, makeup and accessories) and organizing it in a way that I could see it. If I can see it, then I can use it! 

I did a massive purge of my makeup vanity and found plenty of products that I had forgotten about, which is the most amazing thing ever. It’s like getting something new without the buyer’s remorse. #winning I gave some unopened stuff away to my girlfriends, and made room for some new things I wanted to try. 

Now I knew I was all kinds of late to the party on Fenty Beauty. I love Rihanna unconditionally, but I wasn’t knocking chicks down to get her cosmetic collection. I’m fickle about pricey ass products that don’t deliver. So, I opted to go with the Stunna lip paint, after getting a Sephora coupon that I was able to apply towards the luxury product. The lippie turned out to be straight bangin’! It’s a highly pigmented, bright red, non-drying, super matte lipstick. I kid you not that I applied my lip at 6AM before heading into the office, and didn't have to reapply it once throughout the day. I looked up and it was 6PM, and the lip was still in place. 

Y’all see me in this here pic being nothing short of a Stunna (pun intended) #flexin so hard giving y’all lip, hair and vegan mink!! I’m unapologetic about my FLY! 

A few weeks after I grabbed Stunna, Rih Rih came through with the New-New, and launched another lip collection, Mattemoiselle. This time it was matte lipsticks in a wide range of 14 shades. 

In keeping with my commitment to declutter, and not buy duplicate products I scanned through the collection and picked three shades that I didn’t already have. I went with Spanked, Clapback, and Wasabi, because SZA looked like a goddess in the ads).

These lippies claim to be super matte, but they are not as they do transfer throughout the day. I’m not mad at that because I hate drying, matte lips. They wear comfortably for 8+ hours, are extremely pigmented, and hold up pretty damn good in spite of the transfer. I’m obsessed and want more.
