New YouTube Video Alert: Beauty Bakerie Review Part II

Hey everyone and thank you for taking the time to read over my blog. Before I get started, make sure you are following my blog, head over to Instagram @iamzay, and I would really appreciate if you become part of the tribe on YouTube!

In the video linked above as well as embedded below, I give you a breakdown of several Beauty Bakerie products and demo the majority of them with the exception of two. If you have been hanging with me the last few months then, you’ll know about my affiliation with the brand. However, my opinions, and reviews are completely my own and the video of course is not sponsored. If you pop over to their website and see any goodies feel free to use my discount code “ZJAYBB10” it will save you 10% off your complete order and it does work internationally!

Coffee & Cocoa

The first product I used was the Coffee & Cocoa bronzing palette that retails for $38.00 or $34.20…Pssst that’s that price with the discount code. This palette in my opinion would look better on medium to dark tones rather than lighter tones. The palette is “bronze” the colors are gold, brown, and has a beautiful red that appears to have undertones of brown, orange or possibly both. Thus, why being a fair tone it may not be as flattering. But Alas! There really are not any rules in the makeup world that I live in so do you girlfriend!

Brownies

The second new product I used was the Browies in Dark Brown. This pomade textured eyebrow product is somewhat easy to use if you are used to using a pomade. But if you are not it can be challenging as it is deeply pigmented as well as soft which means lots of product on eyebrow brush and easy to get more than what you want on the brows rather than the little it takes. If you have a precison eyebrow brush I think making hairlike strokes will be easy to do. This retails for $16.00 or $14.40. You decide the cost!

Matte Lipstick

Matte lips are in! But what’s even better is a smudge proof lipstick that doesn’t transfer and stays on for over SIX hours. Yes you read that correctly. I’ve tried it out and it’s the real deal. Beauty Bakerie’s lip whips are the hottest on the market right now. The color I used in video review is Cranberry Stiletto. It is recommended that when applying to avoid using more than three coats. The result of not following the advice(I didn’t at first) makes the lip whip tacky and cakey! I big NO. They retail for $20.00 or in your case $18.00.

Lip Whip Remover

As mentioned and shown the Lip Whip Removers are a must have to accompany the lip whip. You really must watch to see where I’m going with this. It will be a huge hassle to remove without it. For some people that’s an inconvenience, but for $12.60 or regularly priced at $14.00 I’d rather buy and have my matte lipstick stay on my lips and not on my food or coffee cup.

~Glitter sparkles $6.00

~The Do it for the Graham palette is no longer available online. The Riley Rose locations does have some left.

Walkfashion Show *Detroit

What an amazing experience is that first thought I think of when trying to explain how I felt. Walkfashion was founded in 2009 by Daishawn Franklin and Crystal Bailey in their hometown Detroit, Michigan. According to their website, it was founded for the purpose to give a platform for emerging fashion in Detroit. Where now they have sold out shows expanding to the fashion capital New York City. You definitely want to take advantage on more of the accomplishments and stories.

On May 19th, 2018 Walkfashion hosted another successful event. One that I was lucky enough to see. It was a busy day! My sister graduated with her associates degree and that almost threw a wrench in being able to go to the event. Time was crunched this day for sure. I knew that supporting my sister would take the forefront but also out of a promise and networking opportunity from a friend I made the show in just enough time to catch the last walk. What I witnessed was nothing short of astounding.

Seeing the diverse group of women and men was an experience I won’t soon forget. From women of color, Asian, and even sisters with hijabs. Also women of different body physiques was great witnessing. It shows growth in the fashion industry, where being a size 0 is not the only way to be.

I have a new found respect for runway models that’s for sure. Seeing them walk several times in high heels, shoes that could’ve been too small or large and still make it work. Wobbly feet, yet head still held high. My adrenaline was pumping for them.

As this was my first time, I felt like I was Carrie and just missing out on a few girlfriends and some good cosmos. I was privy to seeing fashion from local designers. Designs ranging from laid back beach attire, wedding reception specials, and Negash footwear making footprints across the Detroit area.

Overall it was an exceptional experience and my only regrets are deciding to go last minute and not getting a press pass. Perhaps next time I’ll be backstage interviewing, doing makeup, or maybe hosting! Who knows what the future holds. I do know for certain it’ll be fashionable.
