Mix Your Own Lip Colors with the OCC Primary Pack


The Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Limited Edition Primary Pack Lip Tar Set for Summer 2014 features five matte mini lip tars in primary shades that can be mixed to your hearts content. Since I have all of the shades in this pack already I decided to give you guys a demo of how much fun mixing your own lip shades can be.



I remember there was a time that you couldn’t pay me to wear red lipstick or anything too bright. I was told that red lipstick was reserved for women of the night, and I always thought that I was too dark to wear bright colors. Fast forward to today and there is not a shade of lipstick that I won’t try. I have embraced my dark skin and do not allow others to dictate what colors I should or shouldn’t wear, I simply wear what I want. A big part of The Glamorous Gleam is encouraging other Brown Skinned Beauties to do the same. I have another lipstick to share with you guys today, Sleek MakeUp True Color Lipstick in Mystic.

NYC Fashion Bloggers Girl's Night Out Sponsored by JustFab


This past Friday the NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group had our monthly Girl’s Night Out sponsored by JustFab. The event was held at Toshi’s Livingroom, a cozy lounge in the Flatiron District. There was prizes to be won and raffled off. We had a Rip The Runway Contest where myself and another member won JustFab Gift Cards.



In case you haven’t noticed, I have WAY too many lipsticks. So many that I often forget what I have and end up with exact dupes or shades so similar that it’s not worth it to have both. After giving away and throwing out a huge chunk of my lipstick collection I probably still have at least 80. Yes, I seriously have a problem. To get the most out of my collection I’ve been pulling out lipsticks that don’t get enough love and trying to wear a different shade daily instead of sticking to my favorites. Today’s pick, MAC Impassioned.
