Lifestyle Makeup : trèStiQue Review of Three Products

Chicks And Salsa is fortunate and have been on the radar for this brand for a while.  My little sister Shelly was sneaky and ‘borrowed’ my trèStiQue lipsticks on her last visit to Georgia, so I was grateful when I received some new goodies from the brand. (Check out all of our beauty posts here.)

trèStiQue is best known for making makeup that is easy to use and carry! For example, their eyeliner has a sharpener BUILT INTO the pencil, how convenient is that! I know that I have been frustrated by not having a sharpener when I needed it SO MANY TIMES.  It’s the double duty that all their products include that make them truly unique.

Check out my video review below or on YouTube.

“I created trèStiQue to solve a problem. In the midst of building a career, traveling and starting a family, my beauty routine just couldn’t keep up – my makeup bag was messy and heavy to carry, full of complicated products that didn’t perform the way I wanted them to. It was time to reevaluate the way we use, carry + apply makeup.”

– Jennifer Kapahi, Co-Founder of trèStiQue

The Look

Eye Crayon in Venetian Gold

Eye Pencil in Santorini Black

Lip Crayon in Tuscan Wine

All three of these products have a buttery soft application that required little to no pressure to apply. Its creamy texture makes it effortlessly fall onto the skin in a way that looks natural yet glamorous. The color of the lip crayon is STUNNING and, as you can see in the video, it is the red that dreams are made of.

I hope you enjoyed this review, I enjoy learning and sharing new beauty finds with you! Check out all of our beauty posts here.

Trestique Review

FOUND: The Fountain Of Youth

There are so many beauty products on the market, how do you know which ones are right for you? I recently stumbled upon K Signature Oil and wondered if this product could actually be what they call the “fountain of youth.”  So I set out to find out. I met the creator of K signature oil, Karolina Dolecki.  She is the owner of Wellness for Eternity Spa in downtown Barrington, Illinois.  Upon talking to her I discovered why this oil stands out among it’s competitors.

Get To Know The Creators

I’ve learned that meeting the creators of products can often change the way you feel about using them. It certainly doesn’t hurt when the skin of the creator is truly flawless. You wouldn’t buy a weight-loss product from a person who hasn’t used it and succeeded, would you? Karolina is absolutely gorgeous. Of course her beauty is not the reason I bought the product, but knowing that a long-time user of the product has had amazing results gave me confidence in the product.

The K Signature Oil Difference

K Signature Oil (AKA the fountain of youth) is made with 18 different natural ingredients. From sweet almond oil to myrrh oil this product looks and feels great on the skin. I have personally been using it 3 times a week for the past one month. As a long time Chicago resident the cold weather can be harsh on my skin, especially my face. When I wash my face at the end of the day my skin feels tight and dry. A squeeze of K Signature Oil on each cheek forehead and chin is all I need to feel relief. With so many chemical filled beauty products on the market, this is a feel good way to combat aging while hydrating your skin. Combining natural ingredients from Earth is absolutely the way I’m headed with almost all products I want to use in my home and on my body.

Truthfully, we Chicks believe in the products we endorse. Check out for more information. Oh and don’t forget to mention Chicks And Salsa to receive a special discount on your first order! 

Happy beautifying!

YSL Nude Lipstick Review for Brown Girls

There are only two things that I look for in a lipstick – stay power and the right color.  For some reason both of these are hard to find in one lipstick BUT when you find it in one product it’s downright amazing. I have shared many times on Instagram stories that Kylie’s matte lipsticks are my ABSOLUTE favorite (better than HUDA in my opinion) for both stay power and color, but they are matte. 

If you are not into matte lipsticks, I have gotten my hands on a few Nude lipsticks from YSL that I wanted to share with you that serve up a whole lot of fashion and function.  I have reviewed them all here on YouTube, but I wanted to share the two out of the three that are my favorite.

New shoes for the new year at NORDSTROM.

Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick

Color: Nude in Private (9)

My lips dry out A LOT during the winter months and although I almost always have chap stick (like this tinted one) in my bag, this Oil in a Stick lipstick is down right amazing.  It keeps your lips hydrated and glossy for hours!  I love having shiny puckered lips all afternoon, so if you on the market for a high gloss and feel good lipstick, check this one out.   Also, side note the lipstick tube itself is gorgeous – feels as fancy as it is!

Rouge Pur Couture Lip Color

Color: Le Nu (70)

This lipstick has a luminous satin texture that does not cause any dry out.  With hyrdo-spheres and natural extracts this lipstick keeps hydration locked in.  It is also the winner of Allure magazine’s ‘Best of Beauty’ Award for Best Bright Lipstick shade No. 19, 2016.

The third one I tried but am not featuring in this post is the Vinyl Cream Lip Stain in color Beige Bounce.  This lip color was just too sheer to matter.  Although it has a nice texture, this color delivers very little on our complexion. 

Sometimes you can find multiples of these on sale in a kit. I got this one with all three in a cosmetic case for $72 over the holidays and it was such a great deal.  The only kit on sale now is this one for $60.

I hope you found this review helpful.  We like to share things that we like and sometimes things that we don’t just to keep things real. 

Get your glam on!
