Fenty Haul & Free Stuff!

It started out innocent. I logged onto Fenty Beauty to buy foundation. I usually use the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation in #385. However, Fenty recently came out with a moisturizing foundation called, Pro Filt’r Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation.

Mychelle Skin Care Review

I was very lucky to find Mychelle Skincare in my local Marshall’s a few months ago. I’ve been using the products for about five weeks. I wanted to thoroughly test them before giving a review.
