Rise By Beyonce Review!

I’d like to start of by saying I’m the first detailed review of this fragrance ever!

I went to Kohls today to smell the queen’s new fragrance and though it’s not my cup of tea it is a very nice! I didn’t really get that apricot in the top but the dominate player is the basil not at all the orchid. She really stands out and is the Sasha Fierce of the fragrance in the way that she takes control and you can sell her at the first spray until the very end. Freesia is there but in the way that she was in Midnight Fantasy. She adds a little pop to it, but don’t think of it as soda pop like with MF. It’s kick that she gives the Basil to make them the best of friends. The orchid that’s said to be the star is more like Basil’s backup dancer that gets a little afraid of Basil’s control and backs up hiding until later on. As it dries and you wear it more the veviter and cashmere musk get stronger and they get along very nicely with the Basil/Freesia tag team that scared orchid away. The jasmine isn’t really there on me, but it’s somewhere in this very green fresh scent. Something else that I think is there that isn’t listed is tea, but that could be the basil and cashmere musk going at it. As the day is over this turns to something very comfortable the Sasha Fierce of the show (Basil) has softened though she stays through the whole fragrance, the orchid comes out of her shell a little and Freesia is still giving basil that boost of confidence and I think she’s the only reason that Basil has lasted this long. All of the base notes stand out in the end to create something soft beautiful and comforting woods of green tea but still with a fierce kick from the freesia.

As far as sillage, with a spray on the wrist it’s soft, because the wrist isn’t my strong point since I was only testing it and wanted to get frequent sniffs but a good amount of sprays on the neck for me could get me noticed.

With lasting time, I did the one spray OVER 17 hours ago and she’s still going strong, though she does soften. As I’m typing this I continue to smell my wrist since she’s still there! But with Beyonce fragrance I get a lot of wear (Pulse I get about 12 hours even). That’s why I don’t understand people getting like 15 minutes of wear! Beyonce also said her fragrances last really long on her, so I guess we have the same chemistry (YES, SCORE FOR SEAN!)

To wrap things up, Beyonce Rise is a green, woodsy tea like fragrance with a kick of a Basil/Freesia tag team that has some florals that get masked by the team. I actually do feel confident, yet sexy while wearing this and it lasts ridiculously long. With soft sillage from one spray and something that can be a lot stronger with a few more on the new and chest, Rise is something more original and least expected from a celebrity fragrance. I give it an easy 10/10! LOOOOOVE IT! You know… I’m gonna go back and get it! Add something different to my collection!

Love You!

#BlogMyLife??

I love you, my munchkins!!

I didn’t even tell anyone I was sick, but somehow it surfaced and you all were very supportive and it was unbelievable! I have a true love for you all!

Basically I had to leave because I got sick many times and I had to deal with a lot in my personal life, that I might address and might not.

But anyway, do expect a lot of reviews and one tomorrow! Yesterday was Pink Friday (the fragrance)’s first birthday! That perfume is so iconic, so before I review Minajesty, I will be reviewing Pink Friday and PF limited edition.

Also, can we talk miss Britney! Signing that $30 million dollar Vegas showgirl deal! That’s amazing! I always saw her doing something like that, so that bitch better work!

As for me, I have many things anticipating. The Minajesty commercial, the ARTPOP cover and Nicki’s 3rd album! I know, I know I’m a Stan!

Recently, I’ve been looking into waist training, and I do wanna get a waist cincher instead of a corset. It’s a lot fast and helps with the fat in that area. I am contacting a company, but I don’t know how some people will feel about me doing it. It’s not that I want something feminine, I just need help in getting my stomach flat without sucking in 😅😭. Though I am getting quite skinny, because I’m dancing and exercising, A LOT.

Anyway, I was just getting you guys caught up and letting you know I’m still alive and all is well now and I’m okay.

Love you my Dolls,

Seanie B. 💋💋💁

This has to be one of my MOST asked for reviews, or whatever you may call this! All the time I get a request for this! But before I get to the reviews I want to put out a WARNING! MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR EXACT SHADE OF THE MAKEUP! DONT FOLLOW WHAT I MAY SAY IN OTHER POST ABOUT HIGHLIGHTING UNDER YOUR EYES! ITS NOT GOING TO LOOK NATURAL ON A GUY AT ALL! So now that that’s out the way lets get started:

Maybelline Dream Nude Air foam
I just did a review on this item, so I’m going to keep this pretty short, and sweet. BOYS USE THIS! If you have patchy discoloration marks, or spots this is it. It will even your skin without making you look streaky from the brush movements. But if you are having trouble w/ acne don’t get this. It won’t help much.

          Airbrushing System
If you can afford it GET IT. Many people think that this makeup product will make your face look like some crazy porcelain doll, that looks flawless, and fake as hell! This is only true if you go overboard with it, and trust me I’ve seen some overboard shit um stuff! Used correctly this can give you a natural VERY build able coverage. Also many of the airbrush systems out here now come with kits of airbrush shades so it’s hard to put the wrong shade with this, you can also blend 2 shades together like nobody’s business!

    Revlon Colorstay Foundation
This foundation is awesome! You will have that build able coverage, finding your shade is quite easy with the diverse shades available, it isn’t thick at all, and it works with the different skin types.

This is just part 1 of this review because there are so many makeup brands that are PERFECT for boys that would take forever for for this blog to be posted, and I want to get this out there to help people!

Love,
Sean

Thank You

I just want to start off with: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
It has been a really rough time for me, because of the hacking, and I really thought that all of you would leave. I was so afraid, I even thought about just stopping the blog all together. Just as I was thinking of doing this I checked my blog for what I thought would be the last time, but what I saw really surprised me! I was astounded by the amount of comments, and views that my blog had received! I thought that when you all had seen everything gone you would leave too. So to thank you I will try my hardest to answer all your questions and bring you many reviews!

Much Love,
Sean

Sorry if there are typos this is still in a semi edit mode, but please feel free to read on!

Happy New Year BABES!!

The contest IS CLOSED and to be in the holiday spirit, I chose 2 people to win. I’ll tell the details on how it was random below, but for the holiday season I decided to give a favorites list of about 5 things that I have been using frequently recently and love!

1. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

I just found this product and I don’t know what I was missing in my life! I use this under the eyes and if you know me, you know that under the eyes I tend to go for something medium to full coverage. With a lot of concealers, I often find myself not being able to go that full without getting completely cakey and looking like a creased monster under the eyes. NOT WITH THIS ONE! This concealer is like something that I would have come across in a dream of mine! It’s literally amazing to work with and the undertones are perfect! I’m in the shade Amande for a shade that matches my skin tone perfectly! (If I want a really stark highlight I go for Caramel). It dries to a demi matte on my skin, but even when my skin becomes an oily nightmare, without powder, she still stands her own and it’s AMAZING! This is beautiful covering blemishes and dark circles, because it looks so much like skin! It glows and as far as I know, reacts well with flash (I HAVE NOT TESTED WITH HD THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE IN THE NEAR FUTURE). And for someone like me in high school, when my friends that don’t wear makeup come to me for makeup advice, I always tell them to pick this up. The shades really adjust to skin tone with hardly any blending and can take on any beautiful flaw you through at her!

Rate: 100/10!

2. Midnight Fantasy By Britney Spears

Know, though I am someone big in fragrances, I have nothing against celebrity fragrances as some people who are into fragrances may be. I obviously know the difference between fragrance quality, but if I find a scent that I love, I’m not going to feel bad for liking it “just because it’s a celebrity fragrance”. That’s ridiculous.

So as I’m walking through the mall with my little grandmother on Black Friday, I see one of those famous perfume carts outside of Hot Topic. This one I know well, since the lady has been trying to get me to buy something from her for years. This time though, I caved in because I was looking for Midnight Fantasy for a deal since no place near me had this on sale and the only one I could find was a .5 oz. I ask the small, indian (not being racist or mean in any way shape or form, I’m simply setting the scene) woman if she had Midnight and she directs me to one of the sides of the cart and pulls out that blue box that I’m oh so familiar with. “$35,” she says. Now I’m like woo there! I don’t even know how many ounces this is and proving by the dust on the plastic, I wasn’t sure about sinking myself in on a perfume like this I can go hunt for cheaper on. “Hold on there, little lady,” I say making her giggle and blush “How many ounces?” “1.7,” she says casually. Hmm, she may have muzzled her way into me making a deal. So after bargaining with her, I got a 1 oz of Fantasy and a 1.7 oz of Midnight Fantasy for $45. Steal right!

 
Now, while we’re talking about fragrances, it really bugs me when people take other fragrances and try to rebottle it and claim it as their own. Like how the new Killer Queen smells like a cheap version of the classic Flowerbomb that I reviewed, but someone deleted when I got hacked. It really does smell like a cheap version of it and it’s not a good dupe for the classic. It’s actually somewhat insulting. 

3. Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

This little product is something really unusual. If you don’t read the box and you just tear it open your sure to be shocked. This product isn’t the gel like facial cleanser that a lot of people are used to, it actually comes in a powder! The directions say to wet your hands and your face and work the powder into a lather. I actually do think that this product works and that it’s actually a really good product. It works all the makeup off of your face, but I don’t think that I would recommend it for dry skin, without some type of moisturizer or oil afterwards. It does give a very dry, tight feel to the face so if your skin is dry don’t do this alone.

4. Rembrandt Flouride Mouthwash

This mouthwash has been with me all year and I defiantly see the difference! It protects the enamel of your teeth, while whitening. The only thing is I wouldn’t say to do this while your thirsty, seeming as it says that you can’t drink within 30 minutes of doing this. To people that suggest the natural route, next year (basically tomorrow) I will be doing the oil pulling method and I am very excited about it!

5. Lancome Definicils Mascara

This mascara works wonders! I use this other some type of other waterproof mascara and the length is literally incredible seeming as I had really short lashes before. As for the growing effects, this really does help your lashes grow! It’s incredible how long my lashes have gotten! I didn’t take any before and after pictures, but I would say that it has added a few millimeters to lashes! Incredible right!

6. Minajesty and Pink Friday Special Edition

You guys already know how I feel about that. I absolutely love it!

7. And of course, my favorite Flowerbomb and all her little sisters!

Welp now that that’s over, everyone stay safe, and tell me what’s your new year’s resolution?

So those are 7 little products that have gotten me through the year and will defiantly come with me to the new year. This new year I do have a few resolutions, but mostly I think I’m ready to find love or some type of interest. A large part of my life I gave advice and didn’t have anyone. This was partly due to my self consciousness and lack of self esteem. I knew people liked me, but I never took on those advances, because I didn’t want to believe it. I didn’t want to believe that someone liked me when I barely even liked myself.

I Love You, My Babies,

Seanie

Maybelline Nude Airfoam Review

Hello!
I hope all is going well! Today I have a review on the Maybelline Nude Airfoam foundation.
Look:

Maybelline Dream Nude Airfoam

When you first get the foundation, it comes in a can-like bottle, with a pump and cover on the top. I feel as if this is very convenient because of how small it is and slim to fit in a bag or other area comfortably. When pumped out it looks and feels JUST like a hair mousse!
Coverage:
This foundation has the name “Nude” in it, so you know that with this your going to be looking at a light to medium coverage, however I find that in the right hands this can hold a buildable coverage. Notice that I said in the right hands. If you are a beginner then I would advice that you use this lightly. Also this is intended for “normal skin” meaning in between dry and oily. If you want to use this foundation, and you aren’t normal skin, then for oily I would use some milk of magnesia or for dry an oil based moisturizer.
Shades:
I would like to say that this foundation has a wide variety of shades, but I would be lying to myself and you. This has a wide variety of shades for more fair to medium shades, but that’s about it. For my darker sistas we have about 3 shades for us (Caramel, Light Cocoa, Cocoa) and that’s about it. I would say that the can for these products are a little misleading, and I would suggest that you buy it, rather than putting your hand up to the can to test your shade. I myself bought the Light Cocoa and Cocoa shades, and have only used the Light Cocoa as a highlighter and have yet to use the Cocoa like I thought I would.

Final Thoughts:

This is perfect for people who want a “nude” look, so light coverage. If you are having trouble acne or blisters I would say to pass this. Also if you have extremely oily skin, as it will slip and slide on its own.
Thanks for reading!
Seanie

Sorry that I’ve been posting rather late. It’s just that I’ve been making the right time for you all.

Today, I stopped at the local drugstore (CVS) and I made some personal purchases and also some beauty purchases. I bought the new “Big Eyes” mascara and some “Color Whisper” lipsticks. Those reviews should be expected for some #BlogMySummerAwayChallenge reviews. It was more of a dry thinking day today. Nothing really exciting. To let everyone know, I am back home and I slept for a very long time the night I got back 😂 . I missed my bed and hadn’t even realized it.

Many of you have commented very inspiring words on the post for the first day that I will try to include tomorrow. But I do want to say, that many people will try to knock you down and I know that’s one of the most overused sayings but it’s true. These people can be people that you wouldn’t even expect. Many times, to find out how people whom you speculate are trying to knock you down, get in an argument for good reason.

Many times arguments can serve as the clearing ground for a relationship, to bring many things to light and can reveal how someone really feels.

Lord have mercy my babies I’m getting very tired and hope that this is enough for today.

 

Stay Fierce,

Seanie B. 💋 💋 💁

As my summer starts to draw closer and closer to a close, people dash around to “Make this Summer the BEST!” When they only ruin it for themselves. Many people can’t find the joy in lounging in the house and relaxing. The thought of it makes them cringe. One of the problems is that, they tend to think too much. I could be even talking about you. Another thing is that they (or you) think about the stresses of life instead of just not thinking about anything. My Grandmother is that type of person. If I tell her to relax, she will automatically think about every debt that she owes and underlying personal issues. She will not go to the therapy because it pains and scares her to bring certain things up because many things are sweeped under a rug. For her to relax I have to handle everything for her, and take her phone so she can just relax. If your like my grandmother your “Best Summer”, could just be relaxing and having a “Comfort Buddy”, to take care of your troubles sometimes. Not going to Heresy Park or Kings Dominion. It’s just relaxing. You may also want to go to therapy. I’ve been there and it’s helped with things that can keep you up and rack your brain at night.

To change topics, I have discovered that I have hyperhidrosis -,-. Being outside can cause much more sweating then necessary. Makeup (my baby) is becoming a challenge. I have to visit a dermatologist, which is just amazing! I am going to a “Blog My Summer Away Challenge”, to give you more posts that are deserved.

I have been watching the new show “The Real” and I have to say I’ve fallen in love. The different attitudes clash in a way that is beautiful, and not one personality gets overshadowed by another. It’s great.

I haven’t been in the my own house since Saturday and I love it. I realize that I miss certain family members WAY more than I give them credit for. These people are pieces of me and I see myself in them in many ways that I can’t imagine. Family really can complete me.

And here is where I stop for Day 1 of the Blog My Summer Away Challenge! Don’t cry, it’s okay there are 34 days left of my summer.

Love You My Perfect Dolls,

Seanie B. í œđŸ’‹ 💋

Happy Birthday to me! Right now I am celebrating one rocky, unstable, but beautiful year. Some of you know why I say unstable and others may be like, “What the hell is he talking about,” But just know, I see everyone of you as beautiful and valuable to me. To be honest I didn’t know it was BeautyBySeanie’s birthday. I was planning on making a post which I am now and as I logged in to give you a much wanted mascara review, I see that it’s my first birthday! My birthday! My birthday! My birthday! So on to other news, I am hereby making it a commitment that you all will have, some type of material, at least once every two (I feel like typing it out makes you seem smarter :3) weeks. I love you and here is the review on *drum roll* ‘Maybelline’s One By One Mascara’! To the review!:
Now I know this looks very creepy, but disregard the creep factor for just one moment. Here are my eyelahes, with no mascara:

As you can see my eyelashes are nothing long, and very short. They are pretty thick though and they are strong, because I don’t every notice any falling out too often.

Now with one coat of this mascara:

Review:
Now I know that these pictures aren’t that HD, and they are not doing this mascara justice, but this mascara is amazing! It comes in both the waterproof and washable formula and I always favor waterproof formulas. It goes on so smooth and as you can see, even with 2 coats it still gives amazing length. I’ve had the washable formula before and if that’s what you favor, it’s still amazing. It doesn’t flake off, it just comes off when your ready for it to… Or when you cry. Either way, this mascara’s amazing if your looking for length. If volume’s what you favor, this isn’t the one.

Anyway, love you and this year will be amazing,
Seanie
