Fierce Review: Smashbox BB Cream Concealer

I have been on the search for a perfect concealer that brights my eye area and gives great coverage. Well, VOILA...found it!! This concealer blends flawlessly and never creases. It fades the look of dark circles instantly and over time, reduces the appearance of puffiness, visibly smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, and improves firmness. It also primes, protects, conceals, hydrates, and illuminates. I mean it is basically perfection in a stick ( But, don't take my word for it, click here to try it out.

My Fierce Finds Vol. 1

YSL "Babydoll" mascara + Josie Maran hand cream

Yesterday I ventured to one of my favorite consignment shops {Crossroads Trading Co} and stumbled upon these fierce finds below.  I have expensive taste and I only shop for deals.  If I bought full price I would never have any $$$$$  Being fierce is also about being smart and knowing your budget.  I hope this post inspires you to venture to your closest consignment shop and have as much fun as I did. Yay!

Fierce Cover: Vogue April 2014

The couple you love to hate is back at it again, on the cover of April 2014 VOGUE.  I must admit that I am not a fan of Kanye West’s personality.  It seems to me that every time I see one of his interviews, I shake my head about his outward disregard and disrespect for people and himself. But, I can’t deny how influential “Kimye” is as a couple. I just wish that Kanye would use his celebrity in a more professional, humble and positive way.  Kim Kardashian on the other hand is as stunning as ever. But, do you think that her flame will blow out soon? Geez, I hope not. Check out this video from the photo shoot.

Fierce Review: Radical Skincare

Chicago has had such a cold winter this season and my normally oily skin has become super dry. I came across this new product (Radical Skincare: Instant Revitalizing Mask) that promised to give my skin instant radiance, by providing optimum amounts of oxygen, hydration, vitamins and energy. I said to myself, "Wowza, could this be the cure for my dry winter skin?". "Whelp, for $65, it better". I have been using it twice a week for the past 2 weeks and it has dramatically made my skin softer. I must say, that I wasn't overly thrilled about the foam consistency and bubble popping sensation it gave my skin but, I can work around that.  Overall, this mask is worth EVERY penny.
