Time for a Let It Clump post! This series where we stop talking about make-up to explore other areas of beauty and beyond. That’s anything! Nails, hair, fashion, jacked up love lives..anything! Any suggestions? Let me know at Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.
So let’s talk magazines. Growing up I was an avid Seventeen and CosmoGirl reader. I also stole….I mean snagged my parents’ Ebony, Essence and Jet mags. But I never felt like I related to those magazines. Seventeen was great for reading on airplanes or on long road trips and Ebony felt like it was geared more to “grown folx”.
I am currently subscribed to Allure magazine but mainly just to keep up with the newest beauty fads and products on a commercial level. Yet I still don’t FEEL a connection with that magazine.
I even copped that highly coveted Vogue Italian Black Issue.
I agree with Seymone. The sistas are baring it a little too much for me. And yes the ads…well, let’s just say I forgot it was the “Black Issue”. HA! But it is what it is. I’ll save that rant for the personal blog.
But there is one magazine that I adore. I mean…I am truly in love with this magazine. It incorporates everything! Fashion, beauty, hair, culture, hobbies and lifestyle by and for the modern Black woman.
Let me introduce you to……
I purchased this copy at a Borders in Los Angeles and have struggled to find another one since!
Colures is impeccable. Check out some of the spreads…
….and the ads aren’t bad either.
I flippin’ love this magazine! But can’t find it anywhere in Florida. Urgh! Anyone else familiar with Colures?
I went to MAC’s Cult of Cherry party at my MAC Pro and had a ball. Of course I leave my camera but I’ll post some pictures of my 1 lippie and 1 lip glass haul on the laters. I would have loved to snag some of those palettes but yall know I’m the dupe queen. I think everything is a dupe. But I’m all over the vampy burgundy matte lipstick.
I know this is a jam packed post. My bad, beautiful people! Have a wonderful hump day!
