4 perfect Fall Lipsticks For Dark Skin Women

Fall Lipsticks For Dark Skin Women- Assa Cisse

I must admit, I love creating these lipstick posts. It’s not because of my lipstick obsession, but because I always find one or two that I have not worn in a while. Today’s post is all about Fall lipstick options that are perfect for dark skin tones.  Whether it’s Fall or not, I tend to gravitate toward darker lipstick shades. It doesn’t mean that darker shades are better on dark skin, just a personal choice. The darker the color the more drama it adds to your face. The options are endless and picking only four out my collection was not easy. Read More »



Raise your hand if you are not a fan of humidity. Yeah ! Me either. Those of us with very oily skin have it worse (insert shiny face). Going out in the morning and coming home at night looking like you’ve been dipped in shea butter. Not a good look.

Luckily, I found some amazing products to keep my skin happy during the hot summer months. The good news is all of them are available just a click away on your favorite of site Read More »

If you are doing a little organization as well, here are a few suggestions

The best matte lip stain ever

When I wrote the lipstick tag post last week, I told you guys that I was lusting after this mystery lipstick that I saw this girl rocking at the thrift shop.Well, I went to Sephora a couple of days ago just to get it. It turned out to be a  cream lip stain from the Sephora collection called ALWAYS RED. Yes ladies, this is for sure the new love of my life.Since I tried it, I can’t stop wearing it. It’s a matte finish and  they cost me $16 each. I swear , when I put this baby on in the morning , it does not go anywhere for the whole day. Because of the matte finish I would recommend moisturizing your lips before you apply the stain. This is my very first lip stain and I love it. I currently love this more than Ruby woo, there you go I said it. More pictures below….

The Lipstick Tag !

 I found the lipstick tag on a blog a few days ago and decided to do one as well. You may or may not know that I love lipsticks. Yes, I do. Now that I have counted them , I know I have more than enough. In the video above, I am sharing with you the answers to the questions below, so in case you don’t feel like reading today, just check out the video. I am slowly getting comfortable in front of the camera.To be honest, it’s really weird to be talking to a camera. I feel like I am talking to myself instead of you. Don’t worry you will get to see more of my personality in the next coming videos.

1. How many lipsticks do you own? 
For the sake of this tag, I painfully counted my lipsticks and it turned out I only have 73. It seems like a lot, but I watched a few videos on youtube, and some people have more than 200. I only use a few of them at this time, but I should also point out that some of them are doubled. 

2.What was your first ever lipstick?
My very first lipstick was a black one. If you’ve been rocking with me for a while, I am sure that you remember this post where I told you all about it. Yes, until a few years ago I was not into any kind of colorful lipsticks.

3.What is your most worn lipstick? 
 Wet’n wild 911D. 

4.What is your favorite brand of lipstick? 
 A few months ago, I would have said Wet n Wild. Even though I am in love with their megalast collection I am also slowly falling in love with Mac costmetics. In fact I am currently building my own mini Mac collection.

5.What is your favorite finish? 

6.What is the last lip product you bought? 
In the video, I said Mac Heroine, But then I remembered I bought Russian Red after that.

7. How many lip products (including balms & glosses) do you currently have in your handbag? 
I always have a lip balm and a lipstick in my bag. I usually change my lipstick a few times a week.

8.What lip product do you use to rock a red lip? 
 Ruby Woo.

9. How do you store your lipsticks? 
I keep them in a drawer. I found this little organizer from walmart for only 1.99. Check out the video to see more. I cannot keep them outside because my youngest son always find a way to enter   my dressing room and mess with my makeup.

10.What lip products are you currently lusting after? 
 Well, the last time I went thrift shopping, I saw this girl rocking a beautiful red color with a matte finish.I shamelessly asked her about the name, but I do not remember. She said that she got it from the Sephora matte collection

11. Show a lipstick you use, to stand out. 
Ruby Woo.

12.What is your fave lipstick at the moment or at this moment?
Rubi Rubis by Joe Fresh.

13. Most expensive & cheapest lipstick in your collection? 
Cheapest lipstick I own are from the Wet n Wild Collection, and the most expensive is from Lancome.,

14. Do you like, love or addicted to lipsticks?
I would love to see your collection of lipsticks as well. I am tagging anyone that would like to do this tag.

Fall lippies #1 : Vamp It Up

I am a big fan of makeup ,but to be honest I kind of suck when it comes to application. Youtube is my best friend as far as learning how to apply my makeup properly. I am going to share with you in the next coming posts some of my favourite Fall lipsticks. I am absolutely in love with wet’ n wild Megalast lipsticks.So far, I have about 9 colours and this vamp it up 419d was on my Fall shopping list. When I did my very first lipstick post I told you guys I only used to wear black lipsticks until I fell in love with red. This deep purple is very bold, so I would recommend you trying it at night.

One of the most rewarding part of having natural hair is  actually being able  put your hair in a ponytail after the big chop. I have been natural for 2 years now and I am really loving the fact that I can  get that hair up. I have a love and hate relationship with my hair because it is at a state where its not too long nor too short so I sometimes struggle finding hair styles. I’m in love with these natural hair Updos below. I hope to be able to  achieve them sometimes in the near future. More after the jump……..
