Digitization complete.  Greetings, programs.

Over a year ago I got introduced to beauty blogs while hustling to get the MAC Venomous Villains collection.  And since then I know I’ve always wanted to start my own blog but what would make mine different?  There are plenty beauty bloggers, and plenty of ‘brown girl’ beauty bloggers as well.  So what makes me so different.

Well, because I’m ‘me’.  That’s my story and I’m sticking with it. 😉

Unlike a lot of geeky girls (Software Systems Engineering is my bailiwick of geekiness) I love makeup.  I mean I LOVE makeup.  As in I keep makeup in my purse, in my house, in my car, in my gym bag, in my desk…you get the idea.  I also have expensive taste.  But when it comes down to it a product needs to ‘thrill’ me.  It needs to get down on its knees and beg me to buy it.  It isn’t enough to be Chanel or MAC or Dirt-Cheap-At-Target.  You need to provide something to make me go diving into the seats of my car to scrounge up change and buy you.

In other words, ‘thrill me’.

One of the things that does thrill me is when I find beauty products that not only perform beyond my expectations but that also prove to enhance the beauty of Women of Color.  Times have certainly changed since Fashion Fair was the only game at Macy’s but the need for products and colors suitable for Women of Color still remains the same.

Thanks to the wonders of my iPhone, Tumblr and my short attention span, I’ll only write proper blog posts when reviewing items.  Face Of The Day (#FOTD) or shopping ‘recon’ trips or ‘lookie here what Sephora/MAC/Nordstrom/Amazon sent me’ stream through Tumblr.

I also do quite a bit of drooling over the latest in Tech.  Fair warning: I am an Apple slut…and a Google wench.  I own stock in both so ain’t no shame in my game.  I love both and throw shade on both when I feel circumstances call for it.  And chocolate in any form is something to be enjoyed, worshipped and shared.

So until the next post, enjoy this lovely drool-worthy video that shows you in a nutshell that beauty + technology = WIN!  Plus it’s a clip I got to see at Disneyland during ElecTRONica before the movie was even released.  Yeah, that’s how I roll.
