New Fall Products from BlackUp Paris (Cosmetics)

Black|Up Paris has come out with a few phenomenal products for the Fall Season and I've been given the opportunity to bring them to you.

The Perfect Eyebrow sticks are a bit different compared to your normal brow pencils and crayons. These oddly look like lipsticks however, they won't break in your purse and it is a lot of product inside. They currently come in 3 shades. They are super creamy and glide onto your brow easily. I found their staying power pretty good, especially with a primer. $25.90
Perfect Eyebrow


Black Up Paris has also introduced a beautiful shade range of Nail Lacquers! They are so flattering on deeper skin tones and boasts 7 nudes and 3 colored shades. I have 5 shades for review and each swatch has 2 coats (although 2 coats weren't necessary for all the colors). These nail lacquers dried within 5 minutes and gave me a great week long Mani Pedi. $12.50



Top to Bottom: #4, #5. #10, #2, #1


The new Waterproof Smokey Matte Pencil is amazing! It comes in 8 shades and they last ALL DAY! Here are swatches of the four I received for review. Isn't that blue brilliant? $18.50



The Perfect Nude Lip Balm is a great idea for the Fall. We need to nourish those chapped lips with the Jojoba Oil, and Sunflower extract infused in these balms, but still give a punch of color or blush to the lip for a finished look  In the picture below I'm wearing shade #3.
The Perfect Nude lip balms come in 6 shades and  I have two to show you. $27.00






Lastly, the 2 In 1 Lip Pencils (not currently on the site). These give great pigmentation and feel super smooth on the lips. These lip pencils are long wearing and have a built in sharpener.

Great Skin Care is a MUST, if you want flawless makeup applications.



Skin Care is very important if great makeup applications are important to you. We all want that Instagram Flawless Skin (without the filters) LOL. The only way you're going to acheive these results is by starting and maintaining a skin care routine. This means every morning and night you're going to dedicate yourself to cleaning and moisturizing your skin with products that suit your skin type best.
I've been on a skin care journey for months now and I'm loving my results so much I'd like to share my GO-TO products with you.

I always start off with my favorite soap in the mornings which is Shea Moistures "Raw Shea Butter Soap". This soap smells great and moisturizes as it gently cleans my oily skin. I use my "Spin for Perfect Skin" to really get the debris out of my pores,
The "Spin for Perfect Skn" link: http://vanityplanet.com/spin-for-perfect-skin-1084.html
Use code: "TheMindCatcher"  for 70% off original price. Pay only $30


My next step if needed is my Fango Active Mud Mask from +Borghese. I LOVE THIS MASK!!!
You can apply it all over the body to deeply exfoliate and it leaves the skin tingly and fresh feeling.

Lastly, I apply my +Borghese Radiance Facial Oil. It gives the right amount of moisture without feeling too greasy and when you awaken, your face and skin is as soft as the day you were born.

Leave a comment below letting me know if you've tried any of these products and Please take advantage of the coupon code for the Spin For Perfect Skin. It's a value of $100 for only $30 with code: "TheMindCatcher".

Nude and Neutral Lipsticks/Liners| WOC Approved #ThePaintedLipsProject


As a women of color, don't you just hate going to the store trying to guess what lip color would look great on your skin tone? There aren't exactly many promotions showing brown models and let's not even talk about foundation shade ranges. Well, there is a movement within the Youtube Community that is trying to end all of that. It's called #ThePaintedLipsProject and it was the idea of Youtuber, Shana Moore. Here's a link to her video WHAT IS THE PAINTED LIPS PROJECT?  Anytime, you see this hashtag "#ThePaintedLipsProject" you're sure to find many women of color showing off their new beauty finds, from lipstick to foundations and it has become quite helpful. Hopefully, it will reach the large makeup and cosmetic brands and let them know that beauty comes in all shades!

Soap & Glory-Skincare, Bath and Body REVIEW





Soap & Glory is a fabulous cosmetic brand out of England (2006) and they've taken the skincare industry by storm with their fun and fanciful packaging and great performing products.

Soap & Glory has literally everything you need for beautiful skin, from their facial serums and polishes to their scrubs and body butters. The company uses only the best ingredients and doesn't test on animals. They've even gone through the trouble of listing all of their Vegan and Vegetarian friendly products in the FAQ section of their website: www.soapandglory.com

I am very pleased to review the three skincare items that I've been using from this brand.

  • Sit Tight Super Intense 4-D
  • Flake Away
  • The Righteous Butter   
The "Sit Tight" cream is said to give your skin a firmer look within 14 days. You're supposed to firmly press the rollers onto the skin and lightly squeeze the product to distribute the cream.
I've been applying it to my thighs (Front and Back) for 1 solid week and I have noticed my skin feeling a bit firmer. I am a plus-sized female so, I didn't expect unrealistic results but, so far so good. I also enjoyed the fact that the smell of the product wasn't overly medicated. There is a slight heated sensation but, it subsides after a few minutes of wearing the product.
Sit Tight. Cream

Sit Tight Super Intense 4D
The "Flake Away" Shea butter, Sugar and Peach Seed Powder Spa Body Polish. This product is heavenly! I use it everyday in the shower. You simply rub the polish on your wet skin until most of the grains disappear, This stuff leaves my body feeling so soft, moisturized and the light fragrance is so inviting. I use it on my heels, elbows, knees, everywhere where there's normally dull-dry skin.

Flake Away
"The Righteous Butter" is incredible! You haven't had a moisturizer on your skin like this. I always apply my butter after my bath. It leaves my skin with a beautifully, healthy glow and it's not greasy at all. This product smells sooooooo good and the scent lingers all day. I especially love the feel of my skin after applying. My hubby loves rubbing my soft legs:o)
