A Tale of Two Must-Haves: Hair & Beauty

So a few of you lovelies have been asking which lip color I rocked in my last outfit post "Cosby Steaze". Then it dawned on me that I haven't done a review of it although I've been rocking it faithfully for about a month now. I've also been getting tons of questions about the hair products I used to do my natural up-do. Alas, a tale of two must-haves...

So my new red lip, ladies, is none other than Covergirl Lip Perfection in Hot Passion. It was gifted to me by Robert Verdi at his annual Holiday Twitter Party and I've been hooked ever since!

With my complexion, it gives off an orangey-red that I'm not really used to but I love. It's a bright, look-at-me red that works really well for weekends and special occasions when you want to be the center of attention. And it works for multiple complexions - Shyema of Beauty and the Feast reviewed it also and it looks great on her. 

As for the hair, I'm head over heels for Beija Flor Naturals Creme Brulee for Kinks, Coils & Curls. Beija Flor was nice enough to send over a jar for my review, and it is the first styler I've found that actually hydrates my hair while shaping it! 

It's 100% all-natural, it doesn't leave an oily residue, and I can use it for twist-outs, braid-outs, smoothing down my edges, and everything in between. 

Huge shoutout to Natural Chica for recommending this product - I'm officially a stan. You can buy it HERE, for only $12.95 a jar. Look out for a full video review of the product coming soon to LoveBrownSugarTV.
