R&C The Fragrance Duo, the new fragrance from Russell Wilson and Ciara marks the couples first creation of an eau de parfum together, inspiring a belief that togetherness is the key to happiness.

R&C The Fragrance Duo

To do life together is the greatest gift, and to be able to create our first fragrance together was a dream come true,” says Ciara and Russell. “We are special on our own, but there is nothing more powerful and more magnetic than when we are together and that is reflected in the entire package from the bottle design to the blends inside.

The Fragrance Duo is available exclusively at for $90 (50 ml each).  A portion of all proceeds will benefit Ciara and Russell’s Why Not You Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to education, children’s health and fighting poverty.

“Being able to also give back was especially important to both of us – and doing so through our Why Not You Foundation was an essential piece that adds to the meaning of launching the fragrance,” added Ciara & Wilson.

Combining beauty with functionality, the weighted and etched chrome glass bottles have a mirrored finish that reflect the refined craftsmanship and artistry of the overall experience.  A perfect complement to both blends, it was important for Russell and Ciara to create an iconic statement that was as beautiful and luxurious as the fragrance inside.

It’s New Year’s Day which besides eating Black- Eyed Peas and cornbread, we can officially shop JLo Beauty.

JLo Beauty

For years I’ve been trying to get that “JLo Glow” and the singer/fashion icon is finally given us an opportunity to purchase her “Liquid Gold” as she calls it.

If you want great skincare, and you want that glow, now you can have it.

JLo Beauty

Retailing for $118, the “That JLo Glow” is a multitasking serum that does it all! It lifts and tightens, improves the appearance of skin firmness and elasticity, and boosts skin’s radiance and luminosity for an immediate and lasting glow.

What I wanted to do for this initial line was to provide simple skin care that is about natural beauty and feeling great in your own skin.

You can also purchase an eye cream, SPF 30 moisturizer, hydration mask, cleanser, and a complexion booster from the new line. Due to high demand, the site is already asking customers for their patience with delivery time.

Vaseline Illuminate Me is a new skincare line for Black women that was co-created by three dope women from sports, beauty and the arts.

Pro tennis player Sloane Stephens, Beauty blogger Shalom Blac (check out her IG it is beyond dope!) and artist Christina Martinez all worked together to create the new line.

Vaseline Illuminate Me

I have to admit when I first saw it on the shelves at Walmart, I had no clue what it was, until I saw a Tweet from Vaseline and instantly started doing my research.

There’s something for everyone in this product and especially for Black women who look for moisture and they look for hydration and they look for something that smells good. – Sloane Stephens


There are two products in the line so far, a whipped body butter and a shimmering body oil. The products work together to keep your skin supple and shinning year-round. The body butter contains pure shea butter, glycerin, and triple-purified jelly for ultra-hydration while the body oil is infused with pure sweet almond oil and mineral shimmer.

You can purchase the skincare line at your neighborhood Walmart.

Keys Soulcare

“Keys Soulcare,” which also includes a sage oat milk candle that retails for $38 is all about self love and self care rituals…… it’s giving me self care Saturday vibes. Light your candle, put on some self love music and get to caring for your mind, body and soul.

Transform your everyday self-care routine into a soulcare ritual — a moment to re-ground, re-center, and be present.

The full collection (out next year) was inspired by Alicia’s personal skincare journey/ritual and is dermatologist-developed , clean and cruelty-free, according to the site.

Right now you can purchase the lightweight skin transformation cream for $30, her candle for $$38 and a facial roller for $25

It’s not just the products that I use, it’s also the space I give myself. To slow down. To meditate. To do a face mask or to light my favorite candle. It’s these moments — these rituals — that nurture me and make me feel connected body, mind, and spirit. It’s my one wish that every soul experiences these moments of self-love and acceptance so that we can all shine brighter together.

Be on the lookout for the full “Keys Soulcare” collection next year.

Ulta Beauty and Target have teamed up to open makeup and skincare shops inside of hundreds of Target stores across the country and I’m so here for it!

Ulta Beauty and Target

Starting in the second half of next year, shoppers will find a smaller version of an Ulta store in more than 100 of Target’s stores and on its website.

Each “shop-in-shop” will be about 1,000 square feet with more than 40 beauty brands and a rotating assortment of products from hair care and fragrances to lip gloss. Customers can shop in person or use Target’s same-day services, such as curbside pickup or home delivery by Shipment, to get their online beauty purchases.

Ulta Beauty and Target

This is awesome news! I usually have to purchase my skincare products from Ulta and the other half from Target, due to the fact that Target usually doesn’t carry everything I need, so maybe this collaboration will change that.
