I have 3c hair (in most spots) and my favorite styling product is Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curls. It’s light with good hold and won’t make your hair crunchy. It smells really fresh too, in my opinion. You can also try Jelly Soft Curls if you prefer a bit more hold. It’s not cheap at $22 bucks (the life of a curly girl), but it’s worth it. For something more cost friendly, I really like Creme of Nature’s Pure Honey leave-in and curl activator. Neither of these brands are sold at Sephora to my knowledge, but 🤷🏽‍♀️. Either way, good luck on the hunt for new product! P.S. Mixed Chicks has a pretty awesome leave-in if you haven’t tried them yet

Sephora spring sale, order no. 1: Yeah, I gave up on my lipstick/gloss no-buy. 😄Details & swatches: SpoilerMake Up For Ever Aqua Resist Color Pencil Eyeliner, shade Deep Sea - this navy blue completes my collection of these MUFE gel liners, unless new fun colors are released. These are officially my favorite eyeliner pencils, primarily because they don’t budge once they’ve set on my hooded eyes. Sephora Lipstories, shades Sagittarius and Margs - had my eye on Margs for a looooong time and will use it for fun ombré looks, or to tweak another lipstick's color. While I was at it, I couldn’t pass up my zodiac sun sign, especially since it’s a metallic plummy purple. Fenty Gloss Bomb Cream Double Take Lip Duo - another purchase enabled by @SportyGirly125’s new product release posts. I knew I’d like Cupcakin’ but wasn’t sure if Bubble Binge would end up being a weird Barbie pink on me. It’s not! It’s a glorious hot pink. My lip swatches show both shades on their own (no liner), but I’ll probably always wear them over a full base coat of liner or lipstick, or perhaps lip primer, to help keep them from pooling in my lip lines. No lip liners used. Fenty swatches are 2 coats. Sephora swatches are 1 coat.bareMinerals Gen Nude Blonzer, shade Kiss of Copper - couldn’t decide between this (which Sephora labels "Medium") and Kiss of Rose (Sephora calls it "Deep"). Glad I chose this one. It gives the hyperpigmented field between my temples and ears a little somethin’ somethin’… warmer than plain ol’ bronzer, but not quite as softly lit up as an Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder… it’s the perfect sun-kissed touch for that part of my face. On my cheekbones and cheeks, it’s more of a subtly metallic blush. I like it! Can’t wait to see how it looks in daylight. Natasha Denona Circo Loco - I planned to wait til daylight tomorrow for swatches but couldn’t stop myself tonight. The shade Magic is super buttery-creamy and I went in a bit too hard during that swatch. 😄 It’s creamier than the other mattes here, though Joker’s a close second. I can tell Grin will need a wet brush or wet finger for best application. I think the shimmer Spiral is 100% unnecessary since Cannon’s also here; I’d much rather see a matte counterpart of Electrick. Otherwise, I have no complaints about this palette’s color story. Now I just need to see for myself if these shadows’ performance is on par with my other Natasha Denonas. Let the good times roll! I might still redo swatches in daylight tomorrow, to see how different these shades are away from my warm bathroom lighting.Make Up For Ever Aqua Resist Color Pencil Eyeliner, shade Deep Sea - this navy blue completes my collection of these MUFE gel liners, unless new fun colors are released.

I was 90% sure it’d arrive with at least one cracked shadow. But everything’s intact, hooray! The warehouse also padded the top and bottom of the shipping box—a nice change from their usual "eh, just slap a sheet of crumpled paper on top and let everything rattle around inside the box, it'll be fine." I forgot to check which warehouse my box came from before recycling it, but kudos to them!

Benefit Cosmetics Goof Proof Waterproof Easy Shape & Fill Eyebrow Pencil all day every day!! Stays on the hair but not on your skin so you can wipe it off with just a finger if you do make an oops. One side is the pencil and the other is a brow brush, it’s definitely my fave.

Hello! I have also struggled with blackheads for much of my life so I have much sympathy for your situation. First, I'd see if your skin is dry or dehydrated or possibly both. This blog and video can help: https://labmuffin.com/is-your-skin-dry-or-dehydrated-and-how-to-treat-it/. I have oily skin, but it's very dehydrated, so that can be a strange needle to thread. If you have a lot of blackheads you may have a similar paradoxical skin disposition. Depending on what your dark spot corrector is, it may or may not play nice with the lactic acid, so I'd need to know the active part of your dark spot corrector to say for sure. AHAs can help with skin texture, as well as preventing acne. BHAs will help with the blackheads too and I've found The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque 1.7 oz/ 50 mL to be great for clearing me out. Niacinimide like The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% or The INKEY List Niacinamide Oil Control Serum 1 oz/ 30 mL can help with oil control and I've found it was a cornerstone of clearing my skin in a big way. Jojoba seed and rosehip seed oil are also well known for helping with acne control and reducing the appearance of scars. Jojoba seed oil is great for "replacing" your own sebum after a good BHA clearout without causing acne. Rosehip seed oil is also a natural source of retinol. Speaking of retinol, that can be a great help for scars as it encourages skin turnover. Just start low and go slow with it as it can be irritating or drying of you do too much too fast. Something like The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% in Squalane 1 oz/ 30 mL every three days with a day of no exfoliation before the retinol day is a good base to start with. Bakuchiol might help, but it's effects on skin turnover are not the same as retinol so I'd stick with retinol.
