For Colored Girls : Beauty Blogger Jackie Aina Working To Create More Shades For Our Melanin


I dont want to put the facts out there but too many cosmetics brands still haven’t came to the realization that skin tones don’t stop at peanut butter or toffe — that’s not news. Whats is BOMB is that Too Faced is the latest high-end line to finally embrace darker shades and it’s thanks to beauty blogger Jackie Aina.

Aina is well known for the beauty tutorials on her YouTube channel which has over 1.5 million subscribers, regularly highlighting brands who cater to women of color — and calling out those who don’t. Sis dont PLAY 🕵️‍♂️🕵️‍♂️🕵️‍♂️

Jackie made the announcement via Instagram on her 30th birthday

it's my birthday!!! finally the big 3-0 is here and I can't think of a better day to announce the biggest project of my career to date. I've been keeping a little secret for the past few months 🙈 but it's FINALLY time to announce that this year I will be working with one of my favorite brands @toofaced to help expand their Born This Way foundation line and create darker AND deeper shades for all of you 💖 I'm so glad that all of the awareness we've created about INCLUSIVENESS is finally being heard and I get to curate these new shades from the FORMULA all the way to the shade names that will be available to all of you in the near future!!! This is literally one of my dreams! And it couldn't have happened without all of you ❤️ This is what happens when you stand your ground and believe in your message and keep your supporters number one at all costs. I'm so happy that Jerrod and Too Faced trust me with this initiative. best birthday EVAAAA 🙌🏾 time to CELEBRATE

ColourPop is headed to Sephora

Colourpop Is moving on up?!

 
Have you heard the news? ColourPop is headed to Sephora!

 

The line is partnering with Sephora to launch an exclusive line in November. Keep an eye out for updates and sneak peeks!

 

What do you think it is, any guesses?

 

I was curious to know how this line will coincide with their existing products i.e. formulation, price, etc.

But from their latest Instagram live they stated “Prices are staying the same, formula staying the same, still manufacturing everything in their factory in California.”

90s Inspired Hairstyle | Buns on Loc’d Hair

Almost 2 years into my loc journey and I feel like ive master the styles. I feel would look cute on my face with this length of locs lol. So I took it back way back to my favorite era which is the 90s and googled a wide range of fly hairstyles. I was torn between two like Letoya Luckett but then I knew this style was for me. Then i began second guessing myself because i didnt think my locs where long enough for 2 full buns….. I was wrong! Check out how my stylist created this 90s Inspired Hairstyle

Definitely cant wait to rock this hairstyle with some dope chokers

Lovin My Yoni Eggs

Over the past year, ive really dove in head first learning about the yoni eggs and how they help heal and strengthen my sacred vagina. A friend told me about Gemstone Yoni Egg ( http://www.gemstoneyonieggs.com) looking over their website taught me so much. One thing that stood out was all the eggs where GIA certified and the prices were very affordable.

The benefits of using Gemstone Yoni Eggs

Each yoni eggs and crystals comes in different color with different properties. Gemstone yoni eggs (http://www.gemstoneyonieggs.com) are the only natural , holistic , non-synethic vaginal exercise weights in the world.

I received the chakra amethyst yoni eggs from gemstone. I chose this particular egg because it’s know as the ” all healer”. Intuition and Calming are also properties , I find these properties will assist me in keeping my energies together.

The package was silver and chic with 3 yoni eggs (small , medium nand large) , wellness guild and a white sack to store the eggs. Everything about Gemstone (http://www.gemstoneyonieggs.com) is professional and educational. I love how the website and wellness guide that comes with each order is beginner friendly as well as a refresher for the pros. You can really tell they put alot of time into making their costumers happy.

The eggs where smooth as ice and very easy to insert. I used a thread on my drilled yoni eggs and so far so good.

Gemstone Yoni Eggs definitely made this experience magical. Im on my way to a holistic naturally healed vagina and its all thanks to Gemstone Yoni Eggs.
