Beauty Product Review: M.A.C. Volcano Ash Exfoliator

All over Instagram and other beauty blogs, woman are raving about MAC’s volcano ash exfoliator and how it’s the greatest gift on earth for your face. Me, hating to be out of the loop, decided to see if the hype was real!  I don’t have the best skin in the entire world, so I thought I’d give it a shot!

This use to be a limited-edition product but because of all you raving fans, they bought it back as a permanent addition to the collection a couple years ago. At $28 dollars, it’s kind of pricey, but I truly believe it’s a great investment for your skin.

I love exfoliators but I hate the dry tight feelings afterwards, however with the volcano ash, my skin felt super smooth yet still moisturized which is what I continued to love about this produce use after use!

A little bit goes a long way and it’s kind of fascinating that the product is super black with mini beads giving you the interpretation of true volcano ashes.

My skin has literally not felt this smooth since I was a teenager and I’ve tried a million products on the market! I use it about 3x a week and it’s been about 2  month and I just feel like my face overall looks better and brighter and I’ve noticed my make-up application goes on much smoother then before.

I recommend that you all purchase this or put it on your wish list for Christmas, definitely a must have product!

&& if you don’t believe me, check out this video below of 1 out of a million youtubers reviewing this product as well!

Have any of you used this product, tell me what you think?

Love ya!

Crown it or Clown it **Teaser**

Did I tell you guys the great news? My blog will be getting a revamp next month with a new name! I will be adding a lot of exciting and exhilarating features that you don’t want to miss out on!

Starting the first week of January I will be incorporating a new segment to my blog called “CROWN IT OR CLOWN IT.” Each post, I will find the best beauty and fashion look of the week. Not only will they be from celebrities but from people I encounter with daily.  

I come across great looks every day that I wish I could share with other people. So because of that, I decided it was about time that I dedicated a portion of my blog to these AMAZING women.

I have had this blog for almost 2 years now and I have truly found my niche, BEAUTY! Every one’s beauty is different and it a captivating experience to see how someone captures what’s in their mind and displays it in the outfits that they wear or the make-up they use on their face. Your body is a canvas and the choice to put anything on it is yours.

I know that I said I was going to start in January, but here is a little teaser for you wonderful ladies that follow my blog.

So, let’s get things started!

To kick off the December month, many celebrities opted for the red lip! Red lips turns every outfit into a super sexy and sleek ensemble! Red lips are also awesome because their women of color friendly and you can absolutely find the right shade for your complexion.  Two colors that look great on every complexion is Ruby Woo, which is a vibrant red matte lipstick, and Media, a darker oxblood lipstick, both available at your M.A.C counter.

Top 3 Holiday Party Looks

Its officially holiday season and you know what that means? Holiday parties are now just around the corner! If you haven’t already, its very likely you will be invited to a couple Christmas parties, whether it’s for your job or from your friends, its essential to find the perfect dress for each occasion.
So to make things easier on you, and myself, I've decided to create a list of my top 3 favorite holiday dresses, all coming from, for any holiday setting.

Holiday parties from your job are always fun! It’s a chance to show your one of a kind style while also keeping it professional to your coworkers. I know we’ve all seen the movies where there’s a woman dressed sleazy and getting belligerently drunk in front of all co-workers and we know we don’t want that be us this Christmas! My opinion you should only sip 1 glass of wine at a office holiday party because these people are not strangers and you do have to come back to work Monday morning.

I love this lace midi dress that is sexy but still very professional! You will turn heads especially if you usually are the white button down black slacks type of girl Monday-Friday.  This dress is 40 bucks!

Its tradition in my family to hold our Christmas party at a family member’s house each year.  I remember being a young girl and always wearing one of my newly opened Christmas fits to the party. Now that I’m older imp opting to wear a new cute dress with some tights just in case I have to sit on the floor (It’s that many people there.) Tip: Opt for something loose-fitting because Christmas is almost like Thanksgiving with tons of food.

I recently purchased this dress and the picture really does not do it any justice! Something about the swinging and the turtleneck screams the 90’s to me. Pair it with a dark lip like MAC’s Media or Talk That Talk and look fabulous while also comfortable.  This dress is only $30 dollars, what a steal!

When you go to a Christmas party thrown by one of your friends, I believe this is when you really strut your stuff! My friends and I always try to dress to impress so I believe you can go the extra mile with whatever kind of dress style you are going for! If you always wear black, wear red,i f you only wear flats, its time to break out your heels (unless you serious can’t walk in heels, then flats are fine!

I picked this dress because I LOVE sequin but I don’t like to wear it very often due to it snagging everything in site! This is definitely an eye catcher and when wearing the right pieces of jewelry, it can have you looking the best at the party. This dress is $70 dollars but I believe it’s worth every penny.

Which one is your favorite?
