What can I say? I love new beauty, so many of my birthday gifts this year were beauty related buys from my friends and family. Please keep reading for a recap of all the new beauty items I was gifted this month for my birthday.
Hi - my name is LP and I love participating in Beauty Tags that no one tagged me in. Of course when I saw my fave, Smokey Glow, participate in the "Not Your Basic Beauty Guru Tag" I knew I had to join in. This tag was started by Agape Love Girl. As a beauty blogger, I've modified some of the questions to fit my little niche on the WWW.
At it's most simplistic definition, Cruelty-Free Beauty consists of beauty and personal care products that are manufactured or developed by methods that do not involve experimentation on animals. Despite the straightforward book definition, Cruelty-Free Beauty is much more complicated in real life because there is no legal definition of what constitutes a Cruelty-Free brand. In a recent video from JenLuvsReviews, she classified Cruelty-Free Beauty into three, easy-to-understand groups. Like her, I will do the same.
From influencer collaborations, co-branded partnerships, to seasonal collections, consumers are constantly bombarded with a slew of limited edition releases. We've reached a saturation point in the market where we are being flooded with these limited edition beauty and fashion releases.

Since May, I have been tagged by four different, lovely blogger friends to participate in the Vogue 73 Questions Parody. Me being me, I'm obviously just getting around to partaking in this tag. If you're unfamiliar with Vogue's 73 Questions, this is a widely popular video series that started in 2014 on YouTube. In this interview series celebrities are asked a series of 73 questions in rapid fire fashion. Check out Selena Gomez's 73 Questions Interview below - at 26 million views, this interview is one of the most popular from the series.
Were you even an American adolescent in the 2000s if you didn't own your favorite celebrity's signature scent? Amongst some of the most notable celebrity perfumes were Beyonce's Heat, Brittney Spears' Curious and Fantasy, Jennifer Lopez's Glow, Justin Bieber's Girlfriend, and Taylor Swift's Wonderstruck. Gone are the good ole days where all of our favorite celebrities released their signature scent(s) so that us common-folk could smell like our idols. In lieu of the celebrity scent, we the consumer have seemingly been offered something better: The Celebrity Cosmetic Line. But is this new category of celebrity merchandise here to stay or just a quick cash grab? Is this something that consumers really want? In today's Beau-Tea Talk, we'll be discussing the rise of the Celebrity Cosmetic Line.
This August, I reached an amazing milestone and surpassed my 2019 goal: my blog garnered over 12,500 this year. While this may seem like a small feat for some, last year my blog garnered a total of 2,400 views. When I initially set my yearlong views goal, I felt like this would be a difficult challenge, but have been blown away by all of the love and support I've received this year. To celebrate, I'm holding a little beauty giveaway valued at nearly $80.00 USD.
Unless you've been hiding under a rock, you've likely heard of indie beauty darling, Juvia's Place. This affordable, black-owned, indie beauty brand is known for their affordably and highly pigmented eyeshadows. But are they truly worth the hype? In today's post, we'll deep dive into the Juvia's Place Palette that started it all...the OG, The Nubian Eyeshadow Palette. This is probably the most controversial of all Juvia's Place palettes because many fans of the brand dislike the formula of this palette when comparing it to the brand's later releases.
