You already know Mo’ empties means Mo’ reviews!  This was a good round of beauty empties since I enjoyed a lot of what I used this time around.

I had one casualty with the Colourpop Highlighter because Khloe decided she wanted to add some sparkle to her play kitchen.  Thankfully it was only an $8 highlighter but her poor kitchen wasn’t that lucky and also became a part of the garbage.

So let’s talk trash, catch the full Beauty Empties video below to find out my thoughts on each of these items.

 

What beauty products have you used up lately?  I’d love to know so comment down below or as always

If you’re like me you go through those moments (or days or weeks) where you just don’t feel like bothering with doing your hair.  From relaxed to transitioning and natural hair, it can be a task that takes hours to achieve the style you want.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I’ve been back on my wig game lately for that reason itself.  Plus I love to switch it up with a wig to keep my look fresh and fun.  I’ve been introduced to the shopping site Black HairSpray that sells affordable wigs online and with these prices I think you may want to get up on it too!

BlackHairspray.com is a DivaTress company who’s been in the wigs online game for a minute.  They’re currently having their Semi-Annual sale until March 21st, so check out BlackHairSpray.com to step your wig game up on the low low!

If you’re in the mood for some protective styling and just want to put your hair away but still look like a million bucks, BlackHairSpray.com is the place for you!  Featuring many well known wig companies from Model Model, Outre, Janet Collection and more, you’re bound to find that unit you’ve been looking for on the low low.  No lie, I’ve seen units on their site as low as $7.  How could you pass that up?!
outre-simply-non-processed-brazilian-human-hair-half-wig-natural-wave-39d
Black Hairspray carries a large selection of  half wigs, synthetics wigs, full and lace fronts, braided units and even human hair wigs online.  I’ve got my eye on this Brazilian Natural Wave unit from Outre (which is one of my personal favorite brands of beauty supply human hair; I used to buy 2 packs of that Velvet Remy every month!).  Brazilian hair always looks so natural, not too silky smooth and fake looking which is what I prefer.  By the way if you’re looking for pack hair Black Hairspray has that too!

This Vivica A Fox Collection wig actually looks really similar to the unit I’m wearing now right?.

Fences has been destined for greatness from the beginning.  As a play written by August Wilson, Fences earned a Pulitzer Prize.  The Fences movie itself has earned numerous award nominations including 4 Oscar  and 2 Golden Globes.

Even before its movie release, Denzel Washington (who also directed the movie) and Viola Davis starred in the Broadway play and won Tony awards for their characters Troy & Rose Maxson.

 

 

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for Paramount Pictures. I received information to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Wilson did not want this movie to come to light without it having an African American director.  When Washington came on board as the director, Wilson was ready to complete the screenplay and as luck would have it he was able to do so before his 2005 passing.

Fences takes you on the journey of a former Negro league baseball player in the 50s who is now providing for his family in Pittsburgh.  He now works as as a waste collector but still holds on to the grudge of not being able to make it to the major leagues.

The grudge is so real that Troy holds it against his own son Cory who is now being scouted by a college football team.  Not wanting his son to deal with the same rejection from the major leagues, he’s not really suppportive of his son’s decision to pursue the recruitment.  He still believes America isn’t ready to accept African Americans as contenders for the big leagues.

Troy is fighing all type of demons from his past and even brings treacherous encounters to the same family he wants to provide for.  The movie takes you through the highs and lows of what the Maxson family endures during this time.

 

Fences Movie

 

Fences has grossed over $60M worldwide which definitely surpassed their production budget of $24M.  I just had to see what they hype was about and with Mr Denzel Washington on board, I was all here for it.

The Fences movie will bring you many emotions and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Now I’m giving you the chance to do so as well!

If you’re into social media and fashion then you should be no stranger to Fashion Nova.  In my opinion Fashion Nova has set the trend for fashion and social media offering the ever sought after bodycon dresses and curve hugging jeans.

Fashion Nova Logo

Not only are their clothes super cute, comfortable and trendy but they’re affordable too!  Everyone from Nicki Minaj, Amber Rose and Black China has been photographed in Fashion Nova. And yes they’re even Kylie Jenner approved!

Best thing about this #FashionFriday post?! Fashion Nova is currently having a 30% off sale so use the code SEMI30 so if you decide to order some things after reading it you can save some coins.

When they changed the dress code at my job a few years back, I stopped spending hundreds of dollars on name brand jeans that I’m not going to be able to wear.  (I didn’t have 3 kids at the time then either HA).  Instead now I’m on my 4th pair of infamous Fashion Nova jeans and I’m hooked.  Apparently so is our girl Kylie Jenner.

I mean who wouldn’t want to wear some bomb a$$ $35 jeans?   The jeans prices even start as low as $13 or so.  If you check anything out I definitely recommend the jeans.

 

fashion_nova_jeans_kylie_jenner

 

I remember a few months back I saw this post from Kylie where she was rocking a pair of the infamous Fashion Nova jeans.  Social media lost their mind that day as they do with every other move she makes. Y’all already know Kylie Jenner is cool with me, I love her lip kits big time and even featured them in my recent Best In Beauty Finale post!

 

fashion nova wanderlust kylie jenner

 

Earlier this week Kylie Jenner posted this photo featuring Fashion Nova’s Wanderlust hoodie and legging set.  I’ve had my eye on these little sets for some time now but after having 3 kids I didn’t know if I was ready for a crop top.  I need to get to working out and get it popping though right – shoot YOLO!

I love that the Wanderlust hoodie and legging set is available from sizes X-Small all the way up to 3X but in my experience the Fashion Nova outfits run like Junior sizes so it’s best to go one size up.

You can dress them down with some kicks or put on some cute heels and look like you belong in Hollywood.  Best part of the deal is both pieces will only run you about $19 each!  The Wanderlust sets are definitely a good look for the upcoming season.

I’m no Kylie Jenner but I still wanted to share some of my favorite pieces from Fashion Nova here on the blog.  I need to do better with taking full body pictures but I’m thinking I want to film a Fashion Nova jeans lookbook on the Kay’s Ways YouTube channel to make up for it.  Subscribe on YT so you don’t miss any of the Kay’s Ways video content!

 

my favorite fashion nova shirt

This shirt is so cute & cozy. It’s cut perfectly at the waist & fits so good!

 

Fashion Nova Notorious Jacket

This Notorious Jacket is still available! It’s so dope

 

Fashion Nova Slay

Slay Because that’s what Beyonce says we do. Plus it’s a crop top but looks soooo good with their high waisted jeans!

 

Get a start on your Spring wardrobe now with Fashion Nova’s 30% off sale.  I’m not affiliated (besides my multiple orders) with them but whenever there’s an opportunity to save some coin I gotta share it with my people, right?!  Even if you don’t buy this time around follow Fashion Nova on Instagram to stay up to date on the latest fashions and promotions.

Tip –  Screenshot the items you want as you see them on your feed then search the website when you’re ready to purchase. Makes your online shopping life so much easier!

OH AND they have free 2 day shipping if you spend $75!  You can definitely rack up for that price.  Just check the website to make sure that offer applies with the sale but either way you can’t lose.

If you was here last week for The Finale of my Best in Beauty for 2016 you already know Benefit’s Ka-Brow made the cut.  Once I used this brow product there was no turning back!  For about 3 months straight it was rare that any other item was being used for my brows.  So it’s only right that I give you guys my full review and demo of this golden item.  But first here’s a look at my updated brow routine featuring Benefit Ka-brow.

 

benefit ka-brow

Benefit Ka-brow $24.00

* Available in 6 shades at Ulta, Sephora, Macy’s  and Benefit’s Website

Brows are such a personal thing.  In my Brows 101 post, you can see there’s different options for your brows; you can use powder, pencil or gel products.  Some days I’ll go for a more dramatic, sculpted brow but on most days (aka work days) I go for a pretty natural look.  One of the reasons I love the Benefit Ka-brow is that it allows the versatility to achieve both without the need to mix and match products.

 

benefit ka-brow pomade

 

Don’t let the 0.1 oz fool you; a little of Benefit Ka-Brow will take you a long way.  The gel cream formula glides smoothly across without skipping and depending on the pressure you apply it can give you that defined look you are going for.

One of my favorite features of the product is that it has a brush built into the cap!  Not just any brush either, it’s like the perfect brush!  You just flip it over and insert it into the handle for a good length and weight to hold in your hand to apply your brows.

The brush head on the Benefit Ka-brow is very slim so it gives you the precision you need to shape and fill your brows.  Although I didn’t use the brush in the demo below I wanted to include the photos so you can see how it compares to my favorite brow brush, the MAC 266.

Benefit released a whole brow collection last year but I’ve been so stuck on this product that I still haven’t had a chance to dip into the kit that I purchased during my Fall Beauty haul.  No worries though, that just means more products to try out and more reviews to come in the future.  Be sure to sign up here and stay tuned for more demos & reviews to come!

What’s your favorite brow product?  Have you tried any from Benefit Cosmetics?  Let’s talk about it in the comments down below and as always
