Was feeling very fly rocking @yslbeauty tatouage couture matte lip stain in 1 (Ink Your Rouge Tatouage).
My colleagues said I was positively glowing πŸ˜†. Such a confidence booster. .
One thing I learned from this mini-office shoot with @dada_ayodele is - no matter how you look or what you wear, you are only as beautiful as how you really think yourself to be.

My first impression of the @yslbeauty Tatouage Couture Matte Lip stains. Might I just add that the nude (07 - Defy The Nu Interdit) is the first nude shade I've EVER been able to apply on my lips without the need for a lip liner. That sold me.
The colours are of a liquidy formulation but dry pretty quick into what I like to call a satin Matte texture. The initial colour payoff was great but when I wore the nude the whole day (+ eating & drinking), it wore off. The red fared a lot better though. I'm yet to try the other 2.
Tatouage is a really lightweight product. Regardless of how many layers you apply, it still feels light although the lips will feel a bit caked. .
The fragrance is awesome. It transfers when you drink or eat. Maybe I'll try dabbing it down with a tissue and see how much it transfers then πŸ€”
The applicator wand is my favourite thing. It's not the traditional doe-foot but instead is flat and slanted. At first I thought the slant would be an issue but NO. I'm sure they researched it as the slant aids quick & near perfect application to the lips πŸ‘πŸ½
This is fast becoming my favourite lip product ❀️ #barbara1923 #beautyblogger #yslnigeria #ysltatouagecouture
Mehn, but thinking about what the other person sees, feels or thinks when they look at you is a sure sign for stagnancy or non-accomplishment of your life's purpose.
I just learned that and now I'm passing it on πŸ˜†

When I did the #bigchop, I felt relief - knowing that I wasn't ugly cos short hair looked good on me, realizing that it was possible for me to successfully rock any look without makeup on, knowing that I could still wear my regular clothes (that was a genuine worry guys, short hair needs a large dose of support), realizing that as much as people loved my huge hair they liked me more for just being my complex self and most especially, knowing that hair didn't define who I am (although I must admit it was boring taking pictures with the same hairstyle πŸ™ˆπŸ˜œ)
#Flashback to my big chop days, no matter how much I loved them, I think I like big hair better 😁

For the first time in my life I actually monitored my hair progress these past 12 months & while genes play a big part, I must admit that great products play a huge part as well.

Spent about an hour yesterday creating this style. It's the first time I'm really flexing my hair weaving abilities on my 4c hair and I LOVE IT!!!! 😁

I used the @maracruizorganics hair cream & oil from the Natural hair range + @designessentials argan hair mist to moisturise my hair.

Rocking a braid-out + @illusionscosmetics for my makeup.
