Yummy411: My Beauty Today and Other Random Stuff


Listening to: Sarah Bareilles- How many the miles (check the sidebar on the myflashfetish music player)


Song of the week: Usher's Love in the This Club. I love the R&B disco feel! Not feeling Jeezy. LOL @ Mark's review.

A drink in hand, contemplating taking a club piece home... hell naw!


Musical confession: anticipating the album of Tiffani Evans. I was forced fed Miley Cyrus, what do you expect?!


Choice of lipgloss today: Viva Glam 6 SE


Makeup: None yet...


Beauty product of the day: tarte's bronzer in Park Avenue Princess.


On my nails: Still Milani's Purple Passion. Next- MAC's Nightfall. I'm over the black phase, but I never got to try it (black with silver frost, that sometimes looks blue, gray or black).. or Girls Will Be Girls.


Fragrance: Would have been Deseo, but I'm seriously contemplating returning for my crush, Marc Jacobs Daisy. I told you the bottle was mesmerizing!


Surprise product of the day: Dove Pro Age Day Moisturizer. Creamy, light and non greasy! Score!


You should know: Target has a lot of stuff on clearance in the beauty and health aisles. Loreal HiP is BOGO again at CVS (thanks Brit!) LashBlash is on sale with CVS card as well. I got my waterproof version! Oh yeh, in honor of Sey Sey and Nikkia, Maybelline's Define a Lash is BOGO as well. The Strobe Collection is up on MAC's site.


Thoughts on makeup: Nikkia and I were talking about our comfort zones with makeup and how we don't really go outside of that. I need to step out of my comfort box when it comes to makeup. For example, using mineral concealers like Christianadivine showed us. Looks so easy, but I'm still a bit apprehensive. Do you have one? What's something different that you'd like to embrace in makeup?


Shows that kept me glued to the tube: Best Dance Crew, Making the Band 3 (I swore I was not watching) and BET College Hill Reunion (I loved College Hill 4 Virgin Islands.. *VANESSA* is preggers!)


What's going on with you ladies today?

That Usher song's starting to grow on me a little. Very little. :)

Seymone said...

I love, love that new Usher song. I was in the car yesterday bumping it forgetting that my kids were in the car, my son said mommy that is too loud.. Hah

I love American Best Dance Crew (sad that In Living Color got voted off) and Making the Band 4( I just love dawn).

BTW, I had to return the Tarte colors because I have exactly the same colors from MAC and I get it much cheaper so I decided to stay with that.

Let me stop now.. I will make a post like this as well.. good idea D.Blackness

memphiz said...

BabyDoll said...

That Usher song really grew on me! THe beat is fire, but I wasn't that into the lyrics...I don't need anybody to be making love in the club! LOL! They do enough as it is!

yummy411 said...

MARK NERO VISITED MY BLOG!!! *happy dance*

@ seymone: i love your list. sounds like we like a lot of the same things!

@ i'm with you.. i actually made a typo.. vanessa is preggers. great hair post!!! thanks for sharing.

@ baby doll: RIGHT!

nilla cookie said...

OMG, I'm so addicted to MTV's America's Best Dance Crew (who's gonna win???) and Making the Band 4. I'm not even embarrassed to say that Danity Kane's CD has been in very high rotation in my car for the last couple of weeks AND I can't wait until their new CDs come out - Can Q and Dawn be any cuter??

Today's fragrance for me is Donna Karan's Cashmere Mist and Full On Lust lipglass for my pucker :)

Hope you're having a good Thursday!

krstylkleer said...

Hey yummy! Thanks for stopping by. I just caught America's Best Dance Crew for the first time last week. I kept seeing faces from So You Think You Can Dance! I LOVE that show!

Love your blog! Looks like I've got myself a lot of reading here to do to get caught up on! :]

Seymone said...

Hey Yums. Sinful Colors Toyoko Doll is a monochromatic hot pink. I just picked up some the OPI india collection. The colors are so pretty.

I would have to disagree with the ladies at Specktra on this one the Strobe lotion is the truth. However, I use it over makeup. Just dewy and sexy..

Hey, what is wrong with Teletubbies???

I also bought some of the new beauty powder blushes today and Yums you need to buy some they are beautiful especially with the strobe cream.

I hear you on the hyperreal. I am going back for that one

Hi Kia,

I love that Usher song too. I was just thinking the other day that I sorta missed him...I used to be obsessed with him back in the day and now Chris Brown seems to be the new Usher.

Yay, for Dove moisturizers. They have some really good stuff in their skin care line! The haircare I'm not crazy about.

I'm kinda tired today because I was up late last night (couldn't sleep, so I just ended up working, blah!) but I'm glad tomorrow is Friday. :) Have a good weekend!

green lipstick?! YUCKY!!!

Afrodite said...

Krystal is prengant? I so need to watch that. I wonder if they'll have it on OnDemand. She will forever be known for that fight.

Lani said...

i am totally addicted to best dance crew too! i love the jabbawockeez and kaba modern. kia, thanks so much for your encouraging, heartwarming comment. it's really nice to know that there are others who can relate. *big hugs* ;)

damn i miss shopping at sephora. lol. i love how they offer exclusives like that tarte set. givin it up so cheap compared to its original value. it's hard to say no. but oh how i wish. :)

yummy411 said...

@ nilla cookie: i love the shows too! cashmere mist will always be a fav! hey, no reality show updates?? i love to hear ..uh read..lol your recaps! hope your weekend was great!

@ krystlkleer: that was my first time watching as well. they were showing reruns and i was stuck! thanks krystle! from a bloggerville vet, take reading one day at a time..and get hip to google reader if you haven't! it's the most effective way to stay up with everyone =)

@ seymone: the non sensical oodling/googling that teletubbies do in the show drives me crazy. i know it's for babies, but.... i want them to foster talking as well as bright bubbly images. i dunno.. it just irritated me enough to keep it from the kid LOL.. now disney go baby was tolerated hhahahaahaa!

hmmm i would love to see how the strobe lotion works for you. i tried it and i didn't see much but a white-ish glow. i think it's supposed to give the same glow that i love from my barbie pearl sunshine beauty powder or.. check this, i did a post on it a while back, but WnW had this illuminating lotion that comes in white. i used that under my foundation before and it's like strobe lotion x10! i haven't used it in a while, but great idea for a post!

ooh the blushes and hyperreal. i think those will be my treats for next weekend =p

@ karen: hey karen! how's it going? umm can i confess that i'm totally in love with chris brown too?

yeh, i think i've seriously been over looking the greatness of drugstore lines. i think the sale made it much more attractive.

get your beauty rest miss lady. you have a lot more fotd's to do! ;) hope your weekend was great!

@ (g): oh you love it! i know you do... LOL

@ afrodite: ok i finally corrected my post.. VANESSA is preggers. i loved her!

@ lani: hey!! i think the j crew is prob going to win. no prob bob... that's why i love our little blogger community-- we have so many things in common and where we can help, most of us usually do!

knowing sephora, they come out with great kits/sets and deals just about every month. so if you missed on this time... they come up with more!

Apple Diva said...

K, Sara Bareilles is the real thing!!

I may need rehab for NYX. LOL

Apple Diva said...

Oh I have not watched MTV since 1702 and I found myself watching Best Dance Crew ....

nilla cookie said...

Ack, I'm always so into the shows that I forget to write about them afterwards. I'll definitely start up on my recap posts again. :)

Can't wait for the new episode tonight!
