Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation (Shade 230) from Fenty Beauty by Rihanna 
Purpose: 
Has 40 shades and the foundation gives the skin an instantly smooth, pore-diffused, shine-free finish that builds to your ideal coverage. 

Availability/Price:
I purchased mine from Sephora and it is $50.00 

Rating: 
I am going to give a 5/5 rating! Now listen, I am a huge fan of Rihanna and the ratings for it has been amazing, but honestly, it is amazing! I was so excited to try it, and the coverage is great, smells great and the shade was perfect for my skin tone. I’ve been trying to do a full review of it but kept getting occupied, so please stay tuned.

Match Stix Matte Skinstick (Shade: Bamboo) from Fenty Beauty by Rihanna 

Purpose: 
“Matte Skin sticks conceal, correct, and contour. Made to layer, the buildable cream-to-powder formula is weightless and super easy to blend, but also stay put, melting at first touch to a buildable, powder-soft finish without creasing or caking” (Sephora). 

Availability/Price: 
I purchased mine from Sephora for $37.00. 

Rating: 
I would give it a 3.5/5 rating. I like the pigmentation and how it doesn’t crease or cake, but I take awhile blending it in with the foundation.

Rating: 
4/5. I was so excited for it because I loved the previous collaboration with Karrueche Tran (love her btw – @karrueche). The pigmentation of this palette is amazing – there are 7 metallics, 1 satin and 4 matte colours. My favourite shades from this palette are Babe, Chick, Gal, Filly and Missy. Oh, and the packaging is so pretty!

Mixed Finish Lip Collection (Fem Rosa Collection – Karrueche Collaboration) from Colourpop 

Purpose: 
“Dainty to daring, this bundle includes 1 Ultra Glossy Lip and 2 Ultra Satin Lips to complement your feminine side” (Karrueche).

Availability/Price: 
I purchased mine as the Fem Rosa Collection bundle from Colourpop for $15.00 USD. 

Rating: 
4/5. Colourpop never disappoints me with their lip collection, so the pigmentation is always at its best, and the colours are perfect!

Lippie Primer from Colourpop 

Purpose: 
“Our primer contains itty bitty spherical beads that fill in lines, making lips instantly smooth and plump! It also contains mango, avocado, and shea butter for moisture and Vitamin E to soothe your lips” (Colourpop). 

Availability/Price: 
I purchased mine from Colourpop for $5.00 USD. 

Rating: 
4/5. I’ve never used a lip primer before, and that was the reason why I decided to purchase to see if it has made a difference in my life. Outcome? It has! You apply it just like a lip balm, before you apply your lipstick. There was no feathering and the colour lasted for the whole day (unless you eat good meals where you just don’t care about your lips). 


Entertainment

Def Comedy Jam 25
About:
“Def Comedy Jam 25 celebrates the impact and legacy of the groundbreaking HBO comedy series Def Comedy Jam, which debut 25-years ago running from 1992 to 1997. Def Comedy Jam 25 celebrates the impact and legacy of the long-running comedy series with surprise guests, tributes, and performances of unbelievably funny and raw moments. Written by Netflix.” (IDMB).

Rating:
5/5. It was hilarious!! I could not stop laughing when it came to Katt Williams, Steve Harvey, Mike Epps and Dave Chapelle. I wish their parts were a bit longer because their 1-2 minute segments were a little awkward. But, it’s worth watching if you love stand-up comedy – time to celebrate the major leagues of comedy.

Freedom Writers
About:
“A young teacher inspires her class of at-risk students to learn tolerance, apply themselves, and pursue education beyond high school.” (IMDB) 

Rating:
5/5. I know this movie has been released since 2007 (been 10 years), but I could not recall the whole storyline – I was only 13 then, so I don’t think I was paying attention to it. But I re-watched it and it was so good! The teacher teaches her class of different races and cultures, that no matter who you are, we all go through hard times.

First They Killed My Father
About:
“Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung recounts the horrors she suffered as a child under the rule of the deadly Khmer Rouge.” (IMDB)

Rating: 
4/5 – I came across this film via my Facebook newsfeed because my friends were watching it and they were saying how they have read the book, so I was like hmmm. I gave in a week or two later, and it was so interesting and emotional to watch. Seeing another country go through a military dictation was heartbreaking, and seeing young children having to get used to the environment is even more heartbreaking to watch. I didn’t like the ending – I mean I was a little confused about it or didn’t like the way it ended. But props to Angelina Jolie for this film.

Strong Girl Bong-Soon
About:
“Bong-Soon (Park Bo-Young) was born with superhuman-like strength. Her dream is to create a video game with herself as the main character. 
Min-Hyuk is the CEO of video gaming company Ainsoft. He has recently received anonymous threats and even followed by an unknown person. Min-Hyuk believes Bong-Soon would make a great bodyguard with her amazing strength. Meanwhile, crimes against women take place in the neighbourhood where Bong-Soon lives. Detective Kook-Doo (Ji Soo) also lives in the same neighbourhood. Bong-Soon is also madly in love with him, but he has a girlfriend. Kook-Doo tries to solve the case and Bong-Soon and Min-Hyuk are pulled in.” (Asian Wiki”).

Rating: 
5/5 – it was so good! This show was super popular amongst my Facebook friends, but I haven’t watched a good Korean drama in forever, so I did not watch until I found it up on Netflix. It was entertaining though it’s comedic acts and action-packed scenes, and not to mention Min-Hyuk and Ji Soo is eye candy 😛
