Welcome back to Nia Imani! Today I want to talk about some newness that has hit the net… ColourPop’s No Filter Foundation! I have used it a few times and I am ready to give my two cents. Per the usual, the review will be mostly in bullet point format and it will be straight to the point. This way, we can cut through all the noise and really see if this product is worth the hype! So with that said, let’s jump straight into it!
Let's begin with what ColourPop claims the foundation will do:
I am going to rate this foundation a 2/5; this wasn't a very pleasant experience for me. I was truly disappointed in the performance of this foundation, but that wasn't even my first problem. My first issue with this foundation is ColourPop’s shade finder tool. They matched me to the shade 180 which they described as "cool foundation with reddish pink undertones." They also say they are aware this shade is "slightly lighter" than my current foundation which is the Estee Lauder Double Wear in 6W1 Sandalwood. Which I am okay with being that my foundation is currently not fitting me perfectly due to chemical peels. The thing is, the shade they sent me is so pink it almost looks like a nude lipstick on my skin! The other issue, that I kind of touched on earlier, is the longevity of this foundation. It wore off easy on my skin. I noticed it even applied a little patchy. I applied it with a brush, so I am wondering if maybe a sponge would have been better.
All in all, I am not impressed with this foundation. I am willing to purchase another shade and try again, but as of this moment, I don't like this product.
That’s all folks!

Welcome back to Nia Imani! Today's post will be my review for the Maybelline Dream Pure BB cream. This product has been around for a while and I have used it off and on for a few years. I figured it was a great time to give my full review on the product. Let's jump into it!
Let's begin with product claims, price, availability, etc.
I would say 1 thumb up...
I like this product but, there isn't anything special about this BB cream.
Would you re-purchase it?
Probably not. I did enjoy the lightweight feel and light coverage however, I have since found a product that works better for me. I would say this is nice for a younger crowd. If you're over twenty, I would recommend either Estee Lauder's Double Wear Nude Water Fresh SPF 30 Makeup or MAC Face and Body Foundation.
That's all Folks!

Welcome to Nia Imani! It has been quite a while since I posted anything makeup related. Therefore, today’s post is going to be a “favorites”. I have used some many things since I lasted blogged about makeup; I thought it would be best to start with what I have been loving. You know, start slow.
I plan to have my long waited full coverage foundation routine live on the blog soon! I know what you guys are probably saying… yes, I know, trust me I get it! I promise my full coverage makeup will be up by the end of March. I’m working on a new concept for that post so please stay tuned!
Another little update I want to give is I have been way more active on social media, particularly Instagram. If you have an Instagram please follow me there. I post so much cool content and I share so many things that I don’t share on here. Plus, I will remind you when blog posts go up on there.
With all that said, let’s jump into my current makeup favorites!
I’m going to start with eye products!
That’s all folks!
