Hey Girls, I have a review on a company called Alima Pure Cosmetics. Alima Pure is a all natural makeup and skincare company. From what I've been reading  Mineral makeup is good for your skin and the earth, and now these days we have to take better of our earth ,mineral make feels light and  it doesn't feel like you have on makeup at all. I know some people have sensitive skin or rough skin and they would want makeup that would not break out there skin and cover up any blemishes that they have. I know when people think of mineral makeup, they think is bland and boring, Well not alima pure they have burst of different colors that would make your eye pop!. They have a wide variety of foundation to makeup brushes, as you know or may not know mineral eyeshadows can be applied wet or dry . I got to pick out 8 items in sample sizes and I original thought I was only going to get eight but I got 12 samples in total. I was so happy.The shipping was first class which was so nice of them,  it reached super fast! It came with this cute pan flit and it had three different books telling me about the Alima pure the company , the products and the ingredients and a book with all of their products and their prices. It also came with their the business card and a special note to me, and it made me feel good, it was not type written but hand written and I see that they take pride in packaging thier products. To me the love that they put  in every package makes me feel good. I also got a cute pin that says " I'm Naturally gorgeous". For the products, when I applied the foundation, it was light weight ,not heavy, and it doesn't crack or creases.Alima Pure does not test on animals, which is good. To my surprise the colors where very pigmented.  I got mostly natural but I got two bold colors which are aubergine and leone, I swatched some colors below . I would definitely be ordering from this company. I heard some bad things about mineral makeup but this I L.O.V.E . Overall I give Alima pure a 9.5 out of 10 . Thank you so much Theresa for sending me this products and that cute note :) .Be sure to check out Alima pure . P.S their logo is so cute it kinda looks like the twitter bird but gold, super cute and I will be doing a tutorial with this makeup so be on the look out for that.


Pro: Very Pigmented, Very light weight, All natural Mineral Makeup, Long lasting Eye Shawdow , Large Variety from Matte to Shimmer . Bronzer make your skin glow. The company makes you feel like your apart of the Alima pure family. Package with good information with everything you need to know. Reasonable Prices and it is your monies worth.


Cons: Nothing bad to say!

Hi, Huns. I was recently were sent some lip balms from Mylipstuff.com to review and I was shocked by the output of this products for being a lip balm. Immediately I soon as I picked it up from x press it and I went in the car I ripped open the package and smelled all of the 3 lip balms that I got and I tried on the rainbow sherbet, it smells like a candy I had before but I don't remember the name. It was very moisturizing and long lasting, you know how some lip balms ware off after couple of minutes, not this. Well like I said I receive three scents Rainbow Sherbet , Brambleberry preserves and maple. The bramble-berry smells like a combination of different berries and I like that, the maple reminds me of pancakes for some reason (lol). MyLipstuff.com is a web base store and it has over 400 natural flavors of lip balm, they do not only carry lip products but the carry body products as well. The Ingrediants in the lip balms are, sunflower oil, beeswax, cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, castor oil, jojoba oil, avacado oil, aloe vera and essential or flavor oil. another thing is I tasted these lip balms but they do not have any flavor, but on the website they do have about 100 lip balms that are flavored. I have a weird habit of smelling my top lip I when tried this lip balm it scents my lip, its like a perfume for lips.The Lip Balms are clear and the packaging is very good, the lip balms came sealed so no one would tamper with it. and I like that.With these you can put it under your lipgloss or lipstick if your looking a good smelling lip(lol that sounded weird). The one bad thing I have to say is that they can improve their site, but its a growing company and that will come in the long run.  Overall I give Mylipstuff.com a 9.0 out 10 

Prices:
Rainbow Sherbet $2.50 .15OZ
Maple $2.50 .15OZ
Brambleberry preserves $2.50 .15OZ


Pros: Moisturizing, All natural ingredients, Scented, Long Lasting

Cons: Not Flavored (But the do have flavored ones)

 As you can see from the picture above it looks like a lip gloss.

Hey Girls , I've been really busy this week getting some things done on my business. I'm so very excited also because I see that I will be jet setting for the most part of the year. The places I am most excited about is LA fashion week , Belize and Cancun. I missed New York fashion week because I had prior plans, but my bestie/ business partner went to new york for a whole month , great networking though. Well anyway, on this segment of Bahamian fashion, I will be featuring straw bags. Straw Bags are big here in the Bahamas, the best straw bag designer is world renowned Harl Taylor, his bags are exquisite. His customers range from Vanessa Willams to Oprah. Thats Huge to me! Harl's creation have been carried by such respected retailers as Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus and Coles of Nassau. Wow! Bergdorf Goodman.  Unfortunately we lost a great designer, Harl Taylor was murdered about 2 years ago, his murder is yet to be solved, May his soul rest in peace. Down below is some of Harls creations and it you would like to purchase any of these please visit http://www.harltaylorbag.com/
