But Black Women Cant: Rock the Goth

Secret about me? I loathe labels. Really, I do. I have a hard time defining who I am simply because, I am everything. I wear what I want, do what I want, say what I want and pretty much am whoever I want to be. That my sistas, is freedom. And true beauty. With having said that, let’s consider this…..Other people can rock it but Black women can’t….

ROCK THE GOTHIC LOOK

WRONG!!!

Our Guest Editor Jaimie’s sister certainly defies that. Oh yes, our dear Jaimie is more than just beauty obsessed, she also has some skills in the make-up application department. And she has certainly changed my mind in a look that I didn’t necessarily think Black women could pull off. I LOVE this series!

Jaimie did eyes and lips. She used (all MAC unless otherwise noted):

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Bright Fuschia pigment
Beauty Marked e/s
Avon Black eyeliner
Dark side lipstick
Funtabulous Dazzleglass
Urban Decay blush in Fetish


Definitely magazine material. I love it! And I have been inspired to try something like this for the next FOTD Friday. We’ll see how I pull it off. Is this a look you would consider trying?

Welcome Jaimie!

Say HI to Clumps of Mascara’s first ever guest editor, Jaimie!
Jaimie, darlin’….tell us a little about yourself.



I probably first got into makeup in 7th grade. My mom has been a part-time AVON representative since before I was born so I’ve always been into body care and moisturizing. I haven’t attended any professional
classes, but I read about it all the time since I got into it. So I’ve learned a lot over the years through tutorials, and mostly just trial and error on myself so I wouldn’t say newbie. I do know that the most expensive doesn’t always mean the best, but I do like my GOOD high end things. I will get a drugstore mascara though.

I’d like to show that light black girls can wear bright colors and DARK colors tastefully , because as much as people think we can wear everything, we can’t.

Jaimie decided to kick off her intro post with a review.

Frédéric Fekkai Summer Hair
Zero-Humidity Frizz Control


So we all wish we could do the wash and go like *ahem* some certain peoples can and this product claims we can get one step closer. When I hear Zero-Humidity Frizz Control, it says to me, “Relax. You can wash your hair right before you run out the door running errands and still be fly. I won’t let the heat turn your hair into a big fluffy poof” So I gave it a shot.

Product: 5 out of 5
Packaging: 4 out of 5
Quality: 5 out of 5
Price: $22! Available at sephora.com, any ulta store, and various other locations.


The Claim: “Conquer frizz all day with this weightless, alcohol-free mist. Spray-on antidote for frizz-prone hair that seals the cuticle to stay sleek. Helps protect hair from the effects of UV rays with Solarshield™ protection, an innovative sun protection technology developed by Frédéric Fekkai that helps combat the effects of UV rays on hair.” – Sephora

The Good: I love the smell. It reminds me of a Pina Colada, but not as sweet. It’s a light smell and perfect for hair, you smell it when you want to and it’s not there distracting you all day. It really does do what it claims. I tried it on myself, my sister, and a cousin. I have wavy hair and my sister has curly; it really does bring out the natural curl of your hair without exploding it into one huge mess. My cousin keeps her hair natural and unrelaxed and it works great for her too. I know in Georgia the humidity can really put a number on your ‘do, turning it from sleek to weak in about an hour. This product is perfect for those pool/lake/beach days when you just want to wash or rinse your hair and go and not worry about a halo surrounding your head. It leaves your hair feeling really soft and it really does keep the humidity at bay.

The Bad: I had a couple problems with my squirter getting jammed, but I think that just may be my bottle. I also wish that there were more product in it. It takes a while to fully saturate your hair depending on how much hair you have; I had to spray for a lil bit to make sure I had coated my hair properly

Overall: I’d have to say that if you were looking for a good spray to keep your waves under control on those summer days that this would be it. The price is a little high, but it does last you a while.
