Tagged 3/10/09: What I’m Using Right Now

I was tagged by my blog sister Jaimie over at Just Kiss & Make-up. I almost did the Bankhead bounce again, yall. It seems like it’s been ages since I have done one of these.


What I’m Using Right Now….


I don’t use shampoo. Yall know that. I have been a faithful no poo-er the majority of the time I have been natural….4 years next month!


My loctician usually washes my hair but I twisted my locs once and am still religiously using Trader’s Joe Conditioner. Oh…and Oyin’s Honey Hemp Conditioner.

Styling products:

For moisture: Homemade oils that my Mom, the herbalist makes. For loc twisting: My own personal blend of shea butter, olive oil and aloe vera.

For shine: South African Lavender Body Glaze (also for hair) from Darcy’s Botanicals.

Shower Gel:

Victoria Secret’s Pink Body Organic Soothing Organic body wash. This stuff is amazing! Review coming soon.


Olay Complete SPF 15 by day

Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion by night


Degree somethin’….lol, I don’t know. It works and that’s all that matters.

Fake Tan:

I’ve got that natural tan if you haven’t noticed


Dr. Bonner’s Magic soap in Peppermint for break-outs

Clinique’s Liquid Facial Soap for every day
Eye makeup remover:

Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Make-up remover

Jojoba oil…or olive oil.


Homemade scrub….brown sugar, jojoba oil and essential oils


Don’t wear it.


Don’t use it.

….oh wait, I am reviewing a foundation by for Clinique’s Insider club called Even Better Make-up SPF 15. It is foundation that actually repairs your skin. It is working very welll. The color works and I’ve even photographed with it. Review coming soon.

Foundation brush:

MAC 187 Duo Fibre brsh


MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW45


Sometimes I use MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish in Dark. I wish I could find something better because I swear skin loathes MAC products on my face….minus their blushes, of course.


Fashion Fair Warm Sand

NARS Dolce Vita


I’ll bust this out in the summer.


N.Y.C. Chroma Face Glow in Sunset

Eyeshadow base:

Always and forever Too Faced Shadow Insurance


Of course, I have a TON of colors but I am constantly grabbing these:

For lid color– Too Faced’s Mocha Meteor, Cargo’s bronzer in medium

For crease color-MAC’s Handwritten, MAC’s Sketch

For highlight-Clinique’s Almost Peach, NARS Albatross blush


Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils


When I’m not testing one I am going back and forth with the following:

Maybelline Lash Stiletto, Maybelline Sky High Curves and CoverGirl Lash Blast


MAC’s Tendertone in Hot ‘N Spicy

Nail Colour:

Goodness….wear to start. I am currently rocking Barielle’s Cotton Candy. Last night was Barielle’s Grape Escape. And tonight I will probably play around with Nfu-Oh 51. I polish my nails once and sometimes twice day. I know, I know….lol!

And now, I am going to tag…


I haven’t done any of those in a quite some time so that was fun! Feel free to share with me some of the products you are rocking. Or what products of mine do you absolutely loathe?
