    Nip + Fab beauty products | Lots of Sass Blog

    Hey Monday, sweet friends! How was your weekend? I’m recovering for a slight cold and I was so relieved to be able to smell and eat normally this weekend (#smallblessings)! I also had time to clean, shoot, plan, grocery shop, work, volunteer and pay bills. All of which, I fell behind on between traveling, being sick and working 50+ hours last week. I am so excited to be back today in good health and spirits to share my recent beauty finds. Over the past several weeks, y’all have wanted to know about what basic makeup products I wear and what non-makeup beauty products I love and¬†am excited to show y’all today! Snag my robe from Luxor Linens 30% off with code LuxHoliday17: HERE. Scroll through for the items, what they do and a link to shop! ūüôā

     

    1. Laura Mercier РVelour Extreme Matte Lipstick РDOMINATE c/o Influenster

    This is the first time I have tried a matte lipstick and I have loved it so far. I would suggest to use an ultra moisturizing chapstick before applying so your lips do not dry/peel throughout wear.

    2. Nip + Fab Glycolic Exfoliating Facial Pads: Currently BOGO 50% OFF c/o Nip + Fab

    I’m currently loving these to remove extra dirt and makeup off my face at the end of the night.

    3. Essence I LOVE EXTREME CRAZY VOLUME Mascara

    Y’all, you have got to snag this mascara right now. I am so in love with the volume and definition especially for a $5 mascara. It is currently on sale for $3.75: HERE

    So, I can’t be the only one who is currently breaking out like HELL with the season change, drinking way too much coffee and eating so awful during the holidays. This repair treatment is really lightweight and can use everyday on any problem areas on your face.

    #Olay28Day Challenge

    #Olay28Day Skin care challenge routine for women of color beauty maintenance reduce dark spots and uneven skin tone brightening mask

    This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.

    Hey y’all! I hope everyone has had a lovely week. I am so excited to finally have finished #Olay28Day Challenge! With the seasons changing, I was in need of a new skincare routine, and this challenge was perfect for me. Something that I tend to struggle with having combination skin is that some moisturizing products are too greasy and some matte solutions are too dry. See my problem here? But, before I indulge all the challenge results, let me tell you what I was looking for before starting.

    1. Clearer complexion – glowing skin
    2. Less dry spots/dry skin on my face – hydrated skin
    3. Lightening of dark mark/scars – radiant skin

    Pretty simple, right?! All of these above “wants” are common amongst women of color, that’s what I am so excited that Olay has skin care items specifically for women of color and the special needs of their skin. I honestly was looking to gain a fresh face, how did I get started? Here’s the breakdown:

    1. Morning and night cleanse with the Olay Luminous Micellar water
    2. Morning and night, apply a thin layer of Olay Luminous Miracle Boost Concentrate
    3. Morning, apply a thin layer of Olay Luminous Hydrating Lotion 
    4. Night, apply a thick layer of Olay Luminous Overnight Mask

    So, what’s my verdict? L O V E, love it.¬†The main results I saw from the #Olay28Day Challenge was lightening of dark spots and scars. Also, my skin was much smoother, particularly from using the Overnight Mask. If you have oily skin, I suggest using a thin layer of the Overnight Mask to avoid making your skin more greasy. I also suggest using 3-4 drops of the Miracle Boost Concentrate because that product in particular is for fading dark spots and uneven skin tones. Below, is a midpoint and an ending.

    Overall, I found the #Olay28Day challenge to be beneficial and sensitive to my skin needs. In case you skipped straight to the bottom, here’s a brief overview.

    • Perfect for cleansing and getting rid of excess oil
    • Fades dark spots and scars
