This is every beauty product I’m currently obsessed with for the summer

One of the best things about being a beauty editor is that packages upon packages of products arrive at my desk so much, it feels like a never-ending, Groundhog’s Day version of Christmas morning. Some things I’ll try and won’t be into (though they might be better for a friend or co-worker who will reap the benefits), while others manage to land in the extremely coveted position of “Marie’s Faves.” For Unboxed and Obsessed, my final story as Senior Beauty Editor of HelloGiggles (I KNOW!!!), I want to leave you with my current roster of beauty obsessions, in case you need some recs for your next trip to Sephora or whichever beauty retailer you spend your hard-earned scrilla.

1. Tatcha Mist

Tatcha Satin Mist
Tatcha | $ 48

I’m serious about skin care, and even though I have a few brands I bounce back and forth between, Tatcha is the one I instantaneously recommend to friends, family, strangers, practically anyone who asks me for skin care tips. As a fan of the Dewy Mist (and face mists in general), I was excited about the new Satin Mist. It’s great for combination to oily skin like mine, and I know it’s going to be a lifesaver for me this summer.

2. Touché Eclat High Cover Radiant Concealer/listheader]

Touche Eclat
YSL | $ 35

Dark circles and bags are kind of my Achilles heel. I feel slightly self-conscious about mine, so I will try almost every concealer under the sun. One of my first obsessions was the legendary YSL Touché Eclat, and I am now in love with this new formulation. It immediately makes my eyes look brighter, which is much needed after those late nights spent writing.

[listheader nr=3]Deck of Scarlet Matte Velvet Lipsticks

Deck of Scarlet
Deck of Scarlet
Deck of Scarlet | $ 23

When they rebranded earlier this year, Deck of Scarlet came out with a liquid lipstick, and I’ve been wearing this shade, Siren, nonstop ever since. The pigment is gorgeous and the formula is SO nice. I get compliments on it every time.

4. Cle Cosmetics Multi Cream

Cle Cosmetics
Cle Cosmetics
Cle Cosmetics | $ 32

Cle Cosmetics is a super clean Korean beauty brand that launched a Palo Salo-scented multi cream straight from HEAVEN. You know momma appreciates a multi-use product! I also love Palo Santo and use it in my mystical practice but haven’t found many beauty brands that capture how special it is while also being mindful of the current problem of over-harvesting. Thankfully, Cle gets their Palo Santo oil only from tree branches that have fallen naturally to the ground.

5. Shiseido Waso Hydrating Gel Beauty Sleeping Mask

Shiseido | $ 40

Sleeping masks are a new pleasure of mine, and this Hydrating Gel Beauty Sleeping Mask from Shiseido’s Waso line is a dream. It contains yuzu citrus, an antioxidant ingredient that’s great for brightening and stimulating collagen. Just call me Sleeping Beauty.

6. T3 Singlepass 1” Curler

T3 | $ 160

Straight up, T3 is my all-time favorite hot hair tool brand, so I feel that the release of this 1-inch curler, just in time for my recent short haircut, was a personal gift from the brand, lol.

7. Too Faced Damn Girl 24-Hour Mascara

Too Faced
Too Faced
Too Faced | $ 25

Many years ago, I had a beauty and style advice column on called Damn Girl, so Too Faced already got me with THIS mascara! But it’s also a really impressive product—it makes my short-ass lashes longer and appear fuller. I’ve been carrying this in my purse since I got it.

8. Sephora Collection Glow Peel Pads

Sephora | $ 15

My skin has been feeling rough lately, and I’m loving Sephora Collection just launched a new clean skin care line, and these pads are a must-have. I’m not a fan of physical exfoliants and love me a peel pad, and these are great for cleaning out pores and dead skin cells so your skin feels so much more smooth.

9. Lord Jones Royal Oil

Royal Oil
Lord Jones
Lord Jones | $ 100

I’ve been a fan of Lord Jones, it’s one of the OG CBD brands with high-quality ingredients. I’ve been using the new 1000mg Royal Oil not only on my face but it’s been great for moisturizing cuticles, which tend to get easily irritated.

11. Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Sol Oil SPF 30

Sol De Janiero
Sol De Janiero
Sol De Janiero | $ 38

Now that summer is here, I’m going to fully indulge in the greatness of Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Sol Oil. It’s non-greasy, smells incredible and has an SPF of 30. Oil me up, baby.

12. Joico Defy Damage Shampoo and Conditioner

Joico defy Damage
Joico | $ 18.50

Since I processed the shit out of my hair last year, I’ve been trying to undo the damage by using good quality hair care brands. I’ve been loving Joico’s Defy Damage line, which has been bringing my wig back to life, thank goddess!

13. Root of It All Tincture

The Root of It All
The Root of It All
The Root of It All | $ 35 to $ 70

If you’re into Ayurvedic-inspired wellness, essential oils, cannabis/CBD, and live in a legalized state (of course), check out Root Of It All. These tinctures can help with stress relief, stress, and more.

14. Sunday Riley Globetrotter

Sunday Riley
Sunday Riley
Sunday Riley | $ 15

This isn’t a product (though I’ve been all about C.E.O. Glow lately), but I LOVE Sunday Riley’s Globetrotter, a limited-edition handbook focused on travel. Now, all I need to do is book a vacation!

Black Woman’s Beauty Product Lands On TIME’s ’50 Best Inventions’ List

As an international corporate lawyer and mother of two, Adiya Dixon-Wiggins understood the value of beauty-on-the-go, but she couldn’t buy a product that would allow her to apply makeup on the fly. Traditional makeup brushes, which are shaped like paint brushes, became a pain for her to travel with or use when applying makeup in the car. Meanwhile, she found that using her fingertips was messy and unsanitary. To solve this issue, she created Yubi Beauty, a cosmetic tool brand that allows women to quickly and effectively apply makeup. The brand was featured on TIME’s “50 Best Inventions of 2018” list.

“I’m humbled by this tremendous honor and I hope my example will encourage more women of color to pursue their passions in technology, beauty, and entrepreneurship,” Dixon-Wiggins told BLACK ENTERPRISE about receiving the prestigious recognition.

Dixon-Wiggins says she invented the brushes out of the necessity to make beauty less of a burden for busy women. The patent-pending cosmetic brushes have a unique design and compact size that makes it easy to apply multiple products, from sunscreen to foundation, blush to highlight, and everything in between. The multipurpose applicator heads are also easy to clean and promises to provide maximum control, ease, and comfort. Plus, all of Yubi’s products are vegan and cruelty-free. “What you put on your face is as important as how you put it on,” Dixon-Wiggins said

The Yubi Buff and Blend set, which currently retails for $ 39, is set to debut on the Home Shopping Network in January 2019.

Watch Adiya Dixon-Wiggins’ interview and tutorial about the Yubi brushes at the Black Enterprise headquarters below.

Colts OL Quenton Nelson says viral scream moment is product of editing

INDIANAPOLIS — Colts rookie guard Quenton Nelson is a loud person when he makes a big play on the field. He just wasn’t loud on the video of him delivering a crushing pancake block against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday that went viral Monday. The Colts, according to a team spokesman, took the audio of Nelson screaming from another play and added to the play where the No. 6 pick in this year’s draft pulled and flattened Jaguars safety Barry Church into the ground on a Marlon Mack run to the right side in the first half. Video of the play from the Colts’ Twitter account was one of the most talked about events on social media Monday. It was up to more than 11,000 retweets and 37,000 likes on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon. "I saw it got pretty viral on the internet, which was cool," Nelson said Tuesday. "…Yeah, I wasn’t yelling, not on that play. I don’t know how it got amped…

The Weekend Reset – Product Wars, disguise tips and a Halloween party playlist.

It’s Friday. Looking for something to switch up your weekend, or to give you an excuse to relax a little? That’s what the Weekend Reset is for. Each week contributor Tim Johnstone pulls together five things to get your weekend started. Could be something to read or watch, something to eat or listen to, or even something to do. Enjoy the weekend fellas.


ADJUST:…your perspective.

This is a story about the Mercator projection. It is a story about maps and how they are mostly wrong. It is a story about distortion and the poles. And, it is a reminder that there are some things which we learned and thought we understood that might need another look.


PARTY: A playlist made for your Halloween bash.

The Saturday night before Halloween (especially when the holiday is in the middle of the week) is THE night for big adult parties. For those of you hosting or going to a party, we’ve created the perfect soundtrack for a night of fun. Like the old Ronco adds would say, “set it and forget it!”


READ: Yes, you can work yourself to death.

It happens. If you find yourself being tasked with more and more projects and obligations at work, make sure you keep yourself healthy and aware of your health. We’d very much like to have you hanging around with us. Obligatory.


WATCH: Product Wars (a short)

For those of us who wonder about the future of marketing and branding, this is a surrealistic take on what could be coming our way. Satire and social commentary with a dose of humor all combine for a bit of fun. I’m hoping for my own Gritty.


LEARN: Pick up some pointers for your Halloween costume?

When I was a kid there was a movie called F/X and it was a pretty big pop culture hit. It hasn’t aged well but it was fun at the time and it left an impression. This story is about how the CIA protects its agents via disguises. In other words, this is the real life version of the movie and it is really interesting.
