Ooh That's My Jam!

Hey Dolls, 

how are ya guys? So I'm trying to get some pending posts up and posted and I think that this kind of post will be frequent on PIAU  (you can pronounce it pee-oww-ooh). I'm gonna call it "Ooh, that's my jam". So it's just the Holiday season, and I was just thinking today at work, "dang I haven't heard that song all Christmas Season!" So what did I do? Pull it up on the PC and started jamming! 

Song Title:Let It Snow
Song Artist: Boyz II Men
Why I Heart It: The harmonies and melodies be going off! So beat! 
What It Makes Me Think Of: The soul that the holidays posses for me and my fellow Black people. 

Oh yes, I'm Jammin! 

Until Then,
Bye Ya'll

The Importance of a Good Brow

Hey Dolls, 
So on YouTube a fellow brown MU girl (ISAYWOMPALLTHETIME) held an eyebrow contest. nd recently i have just been OBSESSED with a perfect brow. I usually just fill them in with a Rimmel Brow Pencil and some concealer 

but as you ca see it isn't all that great... its decent ya know but not BAD!

So here is a picture of the brows untamed just regular 
(this was the day that i decided that I really wanted to get into some makeup!)

crazy right?!
here are the brows freshly waxed,shaped and trimmed!

My first experiment with the new brow technique! Loves it! 
and OH yes, i did channel my Big Sis Beyonce/Sasha Fierce
He liked it so he went a put a ring on it... oh uh oh! 

And here is the brow that got me my compliments! Don't you just love that glow?! 
guess what its from MAC's Mineralized Skin Finish Natural-Dark! 

Products Used:
Rimmel Brow Pencil 001
Milani Eyeshadow- Rich Chocolate
NYC Liquid Foundation-Sandy Beige

REVIEW: Maybelline Lash Discovery

Hey Dolls!
Well,in my makeup collection, I -honestly- have about 10 different mascaras! I love it! I TRY to wear a different one each day, BUT sometimes it is just SOOOO hard, expecially when you just become obsessed with just one! Lately, I have bee
n doing good about wearing a different oe almost everyday, but I just had to let you all know about one of my favorite ones.... the Maybelline Lash Discovery Mascara!
Here is some photos of my lashes and the product!
check out those lower lashes!

can you see that length?!?!?! ridiculous!

it really makes the base of the lashes look thicker!
the brush is soooo tiny! smaller than Too Faced Pinpoint Mascara

It makes your lashes appear longer
Makes it look as though you have on falsies
Does not clump at all
Keeps lashes separated and clean looking
Tiny brush to catch ALL those lashes!

Couldn't really find any other than the tube is so skinny that it is easy to misplace and lose it!
$7.49 (USD) @ CVS
Overall Quality:
Repurchase: Oh Yes!
Until Then,
Bye Ya'll
