Cocoa Swatches, I recently read about it on Seventeen and I just had to share the news! The app allows you to see makeup swatches on different skin tones especially on WOC (women of colour!). I think this is great! It’s no secret WOC spend a lot of money on cosmetics however companies still decide to show swatches on fairer/lighter skin tones, ermm ok then! Which makes it harder for us to judge how the colour will look on us. If I can’t swatch a product in store, I result to blogs/YT to find swatches to judge how it looks and if I can’t find any at all, I simply will not buy it!
It was created by beauty blogger Ofunne Amaka who said ‘After a number of disappointing purchases, where I ultimately guessed completely wrong about how a product would look on me, I thought to myself, I wish there was a resource that allowed me to see swatches of the latest makeup products on darker complexions’
The app also has extra features like reviews, tips and tricks! I’m really excited about this app! And WOC shedding light on the issue! It’s not rocket science: we need to see swatches on our skin tones too PERIOD!
It’s free to download guys! And available on Apple and Android phones, I need to download it soon and bring you guys a review( I’m switching phones soon so holding off till I do) in the meantime follow them on Instagram
Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Sarah Fynn and I am the creator of this blog. So a bit about me, I LOVE travelling, all things hair and beaut. I love LOVE science! This blog came about as I began to transition to natural hair way back in 2011(Well it isn’t that long ago really lol).
This blog will focus on 4 main areas
Natural Hair. This area will have a diverse range of topics e.g. product reviews and recommendations, tips, advice and virgin hair review (my go to protective style)
Lifestyle. This area is mainly poetry, inspiration and anything that doesn’t quite fit the other 3 areas
Events. This is self-explanatory really. I will be covering events for my blog about natural hair, beauty and fashion or the odd event I find interesting
Travel. Of course I will be bringing you posts on my adventures around the world! One of my goals is go to every single country! My travel posts may not be as regular as I would like (money problems lol) so in the meantime I will be talking about how to budget/plan and organise a trip!
With any area, my aim is to INSPIRE you to either travel or go to an event even if it’s you alone, or to let you know your natural hair journey CAN BE SIMPLE! (Eek! I will try my bestest with that part)! Here you will find simple and straight forward information without the technical jargon or wooh-tah (seriously don’t you just hate that?)
So don’t be a stranger and SUBSCRIBE its free. I make sure I post regularly unless I have had a very stressful week/month. Leave any comments or drop me an email to say hi, I would love to hear from you.
If you’re a company/blogger and you’re interested in working with me, believe I want to too! Drop me an email if I don’t get to you first lol (I hope that doesn’t sound creepy)
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day.
