Product Review: Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid

Does it look like I'm wearing matte lipstick? Oh, honey, that's because I'm not! I always have to learn the hard way when it comes to the expensive brands of make-up. Yes, at $8 Maybelline is my expensive drug-store brand for me. Guess what? I will not be buying another tube. How can they even market this as matte? It's a lip gloss at best. A translucent lip gloss at that.

It goes on smooth. It didn't dry my lips out. But this is NOT a matte liquid lipstick. I love matte lipstick. Even when it dries my lips drier than the Sahara, I still love the way it looks on me. I'm especially disappointed because I could have gotten two tubes of my go-to. But that's ok, Maybelline. Fool me once, but never again.

I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday.

I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
