If you have been following my blog over the holidays you know that over the last few months I have been sharing the wonderful goodies in the the Must-Have box from POPSUGAR and if you haven’t then shame on you.  The last box of 2016 did not disappoint. I shared the opening of the December 2016 box on my Snapchat (MsSophiaStyles) so swing by and check out my reaction(s). Not on Snapchat? You can get a sneak peek below

I always say that the Must-Have box is like Christmas once a month and this month has been a lot like the others. Not only do I get stylish items, but I get real items that I can use.

True Beauty Tuesday: Law of Nature Cosmetics

Law of Nature Cosmetics

I am sure excited that I found another cosmetic brand that offers gluten-free products with women of color in mind! Let me introduce you to  Law of Nature Cosmetics. I always visit the “about” section on every website that I visit to get their backstory. Just a few sentences in I must admit that I was pleasantly amazed at their mission. I know that some beauty lovers only want to look great, but I personally believe that one should be able to look great without causing harm to themselves due to toxic ingredients in their beauty products.

After reading the story of Jasmine Rose, the founder I quickly added Law of Cosmetics to my must buy list. Sadly, like to many women I too have had a loved one with Breast Cancer and I applaud Ms. Rose for reaching safe natural ways for women to showcase their beauty without having to subject themselves to harsh chemicals.

The cosmetic line offers several products that  are not only gluten free, but vegan, talc free, paraben free, bismuth free, and while you may not think “Who cares…..why does that matter?” I invite to research some of your favorite brands (several of which are  targeted to women of color) and health issues related to chemicals used in those products and you will know why it truly matters. Like I said I have already added several of Law of Cosmetics items to my must buy list. Want to see what I picked? Visit me on our sister site Loving Hue & Your Style… Right now.

True Beauty Tuesday: Gold Label Cosmetics

Gold Label

 

I am always do the happy dance when I find gluten-free items especially beauty brands. I have been on the hunt for gluten-free brands that embrace women of color for what seems like forever! I don’t think that it is my chance that I found Gold Label Cosmetics du ring the season of miracles. I just wished that I would have found them before my trip to New York City a few weeks ago. I would have rocked their lipsticks because well….HELLO! they look wonderful! One thing that I love is that they show the lipsticks on very different skins tones. This is a plus for me because as any woman of color knows what looks good on one skin tone can be a hot mess on another.

As I scrolled down their Twitter page and website I saying “Yes” and “I need this one too”.

Be sure to check my this evening on our sister site Loving Hue & Your Style for my personal style picks.

True Beauty Tuesday: AJ Crimson

 

AJ Crimson Beauty

AJ Crimson Beauty

WOW! was the reaction that I had when I clicked onto the AJ Crimson website for the first time. WOW! WOW! WOW!.  The colors just popped off the website. I personally love color, and I have to admit it is hard to find colors that “pop” and don’t drop color after a long day. Sometimes beauty products for women of color then to look a bit dull when shopping online which makes it hard to pick a color that will match your skin tone. AJ Crimson truly lit up my computer screen with amazing hues that reminds me that was women of color we can wear color and wear it well!

If you too are in love with the colors seen below you need to visit their website and social media pages (see below)  and check out their holiday sales. *hint* Check out their all Black Friday Weekend Sale

True Beauty Tuesday: “Choose Love” campaign

Love is in the air in more ways than one. Singer Ciara recently announced on social media that she is not only the newest global ambassador for Revlon, but she will also be the face of their “Choose Love” campaign. Personally, I think she will be a great spokesperson especially for the “Choose Love” campaign. The singer has been living a life that reminds me of a fairytale. Earlier this year she wed Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson after courtship that would melt just about anyone.

The “Choose Love” campaign is like nothing I have ever seen before in a good way. It seems that to often beauty and style brands try to “sell” you on what you need to fix about yourself to attract the perfect mate and how their products can save the day, and while I know the goal of every brand is to create revenue this campaign reminds you to look take time to love yourself first. On their website they offer several ways to do so, and yes it does involve make-up, but not in the way that you think.  After watching the video  and reading the Revlon Love Test Instructions.

I realized something that most women do or should I say don’t do…. and that is take care or love themselves EVERY day first. Women often place everyone above themselves until they sadly realize that they have taken themselves off the list of things to take care. Having  grown up in the south I have always heard that you can’t love anyone else until you can love yourself so I invite you to join me for one week and take the Revlon love test. Will you “Choose Love”?

True Beauty Tuesday:Khoudia Diop

 

When I originally started True Beauty Tuesday a few years back I wanted to to be more that just beauty products (there is nothing wrong with that), but like I have always said my goal is to celebrate, educate, and empower HUE to HUE.

There are times in your life when you come across a beauty so amazing to the eye that you just wan to cry. It happened for me when I say Khoudia Diop. Never in my life have I seen a woman hold such beauty. NEVER. Her melanin skin makes me value my skin tone even more than ever and while I am sure she has experienced her fair share of rude people I want to take this moment to send nothing but love to her.Screen Shot 2016-10-05 at 4.33.45 PM.png
