The Beauty Scoop: week 1

Hey guys! Super sorry, I’ve been AWOL but I’VE FINALLY MOVED!!! Yall I can’t even begin to describe how happy I am♥ But I have officially started working on my youtube again and now I’m coming back full force to work on my blog! Im super excited to see where this new beginning takes me! 

     Today, I’m going to be writing about the weekly Beauty Scoop! //This is pretty much all the drama of the beauty world as well as any other news// I’m going to start posting this on my Youtube Channel every week but this week, y’all are reading it here first so sit back, grab some tea, and get ready to hear all the juicy shade the week has to offer!

First up on the agenda is the recent battle between Jeffree Star and Too Faced cofounder, Jerrod Blandino. Star called out Blandino earlier this spring for allegedly shading Tarte with a (now deleted) Instagram post that was captioned #ThereArentUnicornsInTheAmazon, this is assumed to be a dig at the brands Amazon clay collection and unicorn inspired products that they just released.  Star recently hinted shade towards the business between Nikki Tutorials and Too Face involving their recent collab. Supposedly, Nikki was paid $50,000 and told not to work with any other brands and not to speak about this yet Too Faced brought in almost $9 million from her collaboration alone. Star said on Twitter “While @jerrodblandino drives a Bentley and lives in a mansion, Nikkie has been suffering in silence.”

Also in this controversy, Star recently said “her and I are no longer friends. You can confirm that.  but I still respect her hustle and I watched firsthand how they abused her and know how much she got paid. It’s embarrassing. I think anyone else BUT me afraid to mention the contract. I did it to make a statement so the audience have a taste as to why it was so Sh!tty. she prove something and what was produced was not the same quality.”

After Star hinted towards the contract between Niki and Too Faced, Blandino’s sister Lisa decided to get involved. She publicly bashed his customers and made death threats towards Star. There is also a chance that start is facing legal action for his remarks about the contract. He mentioned other companies and brands trying to mess with his money and business behind the scenes and to that he said “get ready for a blood bath”.

In other news, Too Face is releasing their “I want Kandee” collab with Kandee Johnson on September 3. Kandee posted a sneak peek on Instagram of an eyeshadow palette from the collection. There are 15 pans with three oversized base colors in a blend of mattes and shimmers the overall pallet means towards the cool neutral side of the spectrum. The shades are named after sweet treats such as banana cream pie sugar strawberry and more.

And lastly, Manny MUA jumped to his friends defense and called out MAC Cosmetics for allegedly failing to promote their collab as well as they should have. Laura Lee and Gabriel Zamora worked with Mac to each release their own online- only lipsticks. Manny felt MAC didn’t promote the lip products like they have with other collabs in the past and took to twitter to defend his friend’s honor. Whether or not you feel he was right, his tweets caused both of their lipsticks to become sold out!

Dupe Day Tuesday #3

HEY GUYS! Today I’m uploading a video on YouTube so be sure to go watch that (^-^)

https://www.youtube.com/user/snug61

Anyway, today’s Dupe Day is going to feature some of my fave products! ♥

  • ColourPop is one of my favorite brands y’all don’t understand the love I have for this brand! CP’s Highlighters are the BOMB.COM no matter if they’re dupes or not! Any who, CP’s Wisp($8) is a similar dupe for Becca’s Opal($38). I do love Becca but I feel like I get a better quality from CP.♥
  • ELF has made so many dupes for higher end brands and they’re not stopping now! If you love Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop($38) then you’ll love e.l.f.’s baked eye shadow in Enchanted($3). I mean no one will know that your glow is eye shadow so it could be the perfect highlighter!
  • Wet n Wild is one of the most underrated brands. Their lippie in “sandstorm” is a perfect match for ABH’s Ashton.

 

Weekly Review: Dose Of Colors

Hey guys, sorry for missing Dupe Day Tuesday this week!!! (I know I suck) Life has been crazy this week with meal preps, classes, apartment hunting, and all the other things I fill my time with. ☺

Anyway, in all the chaos, I forgot I ordered 2 Dose Of Colors liquid lipsticks!
The ones I bought were Bare with Me and Truffle (links at the bottom ( No, I don’t make a profit from you buying them, I just love the products!)).

So, I was a little confused when I opened the boxes. The colors looked EXACTLY the same in the bottle.

But GIRL lemme tell you these were anything but the same. (unfortunately, I forgot to take a side by side pic so here’s one from doseofcolors.com )

 

I absolutely love Truffle ♥ It looks sooo good on too! Bare with me is amazing but I don’t have the badass-ness to wear nude lips out in public )):

This product does take a lil bit to dry but once it does, it’s not going anywhere!

Hopefully, I can make it up to y’all for missing Dupe Day by doing 2 posts in one day????? ♥

 

Welcome!

Welcome to my online home away from home! Here you can expect to see everything from beauty tips and reviews to life hacks and my favorite DIYs to try!

I’ll start by introducing myself- My name is Amie and I am a makeup addict.

I’ve always loved makeup and, in a way, it has helped me build my self confidence. I used to use makeup as a way to hide what I felt my “imperfections’ were but I soon realized that my “imperfections” were just things that made me me. So now I use makeup as a way to express myself and enhance my natural features.

I am 16 ( I’ll be 17 this Saturday OMG!!) and born and raised in North Carolina. For the past 6 months, I’ve been uploading makeup videos to my YouTube channel (@Its Me Amie G) and I’m in love with it! I have an amazing boyfriend and a loving fur-baby named Chloe. I attended a local High School for the first 3 years and then graduated this past September from an online school based out of Pennsylvania. I  was in the Writing club all four years of High School and I was in the Drama club my Freshman and Sophomore year. I plan on starting college soon at an online university based out of California. I hope to receive my BA in Psychology and then transfer to a local college to get my masters in child psychology.

I currently work at a gym but I also do photography, manage various social media accounts for local businesses, make beaded jewelry and bath bombs, and sell Mary Kay. (Even though I sell Mary Kay, I’m still going to write about the many other products that I have or will try.)  

I believe that is the main things- I’ll do a few posts in the future so ya’ll can get to know me better. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you decide to join my beauty squad!

xoxo A
