  1. I like the make-up, it's pretty!

  2. So beautiful as always, love ur hair as well babes!

  3. Love love love!! Found your blog whilst searching for Black up fc11 and I have gone back to almost the beginning!! Fabulous work!! Quick question please?
    I noticed you use both FL09 and FC11 but you use FC11 almost every time, whilst your skin is oily. Is the cream to powder better for oily skin in Lagos weather because i already invested in FL09, but Black|up is having an Easter sale where it is reduced to 5,600.

    1. Hello dear,
      They are both very good foundations. The Fluid foundation stays matte and with it I hardly need to touch up but like I've said in previous posts most liquid foundations break me out and after constant use I had a couple of breakouts.

      With the cream to powder you are definitely going to need to touch up especially if your skin is very oily. The coverage you get with it is full, You don't even need to use a concealer with this foundation. It does not break me out!! which to me is actually more important than how a foundation holds up.

      I hope this was helpful.

    2. Unfortunately, I got it on Easter monday due to the crzy sale ending( gasp)!! It is definitely NOT recommended for oily skin/ #greasyskin. Your lucky it works for u. I always use the rebalancing matifying fluid and boot shine free primer and still was still oily geesh! #oilygirlnightmare!! Definitely going into the never-will-use-again pile lol.
      Anyone interested in a slightly used FC11 holla!!

    3. Hi Dimma, I had to return to this post after i fixed the sensationnel pro 10 and i'm having a hard time maintaining it. I have used a hair serum twice but the weave seems to be loosing it's lush appearance(it hurts, the first day i looked wow and just 2 days after i'm loosing the wow *sad face*)...Help!!!

  4. OMG! I love it!

  5. Gorgeous look! Your makeup is on point!

  6. Your hair looks great girl <3
    And I love your make up looks!

  7. This is such a beautiful look. Im def going to try it
    Great job babe

  8. i luv ur tutorial very helpful.i also have an oily skin and i break out a lot when i use my mary-kay foundation.which foundation do i get black-up or mac.

    1. From personal experience I recommend you try Blackup.

  9. Please which do you recommend the creme to powder or the liquid foundation for blackup? I live in Lagos as well and the weather is insane,i need something that can stay through the heat....Thank you

    1. If you are looking for something that will stay through heat, I recommend you try the liquid foundation.
