Little sex in another city too!

I guess you can already tell this sequel left a little to be desired. I must admit I am not a previous fan of the show so my opinion may be skewed.
Without giving any spoilers (if there were any) the dialog seemed a bit forced, cliche and over written. In it's defense this may have been how the show was written and they might have been staying true to form. There were a few moments in the movie that made me laugh but for the most part the clothes stole the show! Each actress adorned beautifully constructed garments with vibrant colors and lavish fabrics. There were a few "What in the hell is she wearin?" moments but you can't hit a home run every time right? The makeup and hair were a big hit for me as well however no amount of makeup could hide the massive "crows feet" caused by good ole mother nature. I noticed "carrie" sporting crimped hair at the nape area and loosely spired hair on top. This look had loads of texture and volume. I loved it!

The best part of the entire movie for me all happened in the first 15 minutes. Did they really need 2 1/2 hours to tell this story....I think not. It seemed a bit to long for my liking as there were no car chases or gun shots to keep me focused. Yes I know they never do but a girl can dream. lol

Bombshell Tip: For your clothing palette this season, spice up your wardrobe with some electric color. Adding a pop of color with your shoes can change the look of an old outfit. Trust me!

On a side note the theatre (Gold Class cinemas) where I saw the movie was first rate! They had a special cocktail menu inspired by the movie featuring the Flirtini, Tartini and of course Comos! The seats were plush and fully reclined electronically. If needed the staff had pillows and blankets incase you wanted to get a little more cozy. This was the best theatre I've ever had the pleasure of attending. I will be going back even if it's to see a bad movie! Check out the video tour below!

What's the last movie you saw? Did you like it?

I Look Gorgeous In Green

I had the pleasure to sample some EcoTools products and they aren't half bad! I tried the Clean Skin ,Cleaner World body wash, Passion For Change Body mist and Love Heels intensive heel cream. I loved the smell of each product however I would not suggest shaving before using the body mist which contains loads of alcohol. (Ouch!) The Shampoo contains Sodium laurel sulfoacetate which is derived from coconut and palm oil. This is not to be confused with Sodium laurel sulfate that often irritates the skin with prolonged exposure. This product is easily rinsed off and doesn't leave the film you get from bar soap.

EcoTools is encouraging women to get "gorgeously green" with their beauty routine. I love it!

I used the cellulose facial sponges to encourage a light exfoliation.
This is a must have for my beauty routine!

My brows always have to be well groomed so I also tried the Bamboo lash and brow groomer which uses cruelty free hair, all natural and recycled materials. Very stiff brush and combs through the most unruly of brows!

I was not able to test out the entire brush line but they are so affordable, Check em out!
Individual ecoTOOLs brushes cost between $2.99 and $7.99. But for just $10.99, you can own the 5 Piece Brush Set – housed in a 100% linen and hemp cosmetic case.

Are you going green in your beauty routines? I'd love to hear how!

Makeup Show Product Recap: Face Atelier and IMYB

While at The Makeup Show NYC, I picked up Face Atelier's new Ultra foundation for women of color. I was so impressed! It comes in 3 shades and 2 color correctors. I used this foundation on a shoot yesterday (Pic Shown here) and the foundation went on so smoothly! Did I forget to mention the primer is already in the foundation! Loved it! It gave me the perfect "dewy look" without the work. I contoured her face using only Face Atelier liquid foundation. Because I mixed and matched colors it gave the perfect "glow" effect I was looking for. The only powder product used was blush from a nameless palette. We shot 3 looks and the product held up great!

I also picked up Some of Danessa Myricks products and loved how highly pigmented they were. I used her liner gel to boost the color on the model's lids and one of her paint pots in brown to create the shape of the eye.
(On a side note I found these lashes at the dollar store, don't sleep on the dollar store you can find a few gems in there too!)

Bombshell Tip: It is important to prep the skin with a great moisturizer before applying any products. If possible apply moisturizer then wait 5 minutes and let the product absorb into the skin.

What is the last makeup line you used for your foundation? Did you love it or simply like it? I'd love to hear.
