Hey lovelies! I am 39-years old, so retinol is a permanent part of my skincare vocabulary. I am always down to try a new retinol product. When Valentia invited me to try out their newest retinol serum, I did not hesitate to accept. In this review, I will give a little information about retinol and some of the other key ingredients in the serum. Per usual, I will give my opinion about the serum. Let's get started.

I truly hate writing this because I wrote about her the day this broke. It is such a shame when someone takes a stance on a matter then cuts corners on that stance. This is the case with Alicia Keys and her #NoMakeup revelation from last May. It seems that Keys' makeup artist spilled the beans in W Magazine telling everyone that Keys does use a tiny bit of makeup products. What?! While I did not like the way people dragged Keys on social media for her stance, I have to say now, that it will be hard for anyone to take up for her after this news has come out.

So this week, the media is trying to pull a fast one on us lovelies. We all know that Alicia Keys has adopted a no makeup lifestyle since May of this year. Now the media is trying to say that other celebrities like Gabrielle Union-Wade are joining in. This is not entirely true.

Last month, I asked you lovelies on Twitter to let me know what fall trends or fall related topics you wanted me to blog about this season. One of you lovelies asked if matte lipstick was still a trend. This particular lovely was DONE with matte lipstick. I had to delve a bit deeper into why she felt this way about mattes. I found out that she did not like matte lipstick because it is too drying. I know she is not the only one who feels this way. Let me give you matte-weary lovelies some info on matte lipsticks that don't chap your lips.

A couple of months ago, singer/songwriter/actress, Alicia Keys proclaimed she is going makeup free. This turned into a -- media dubbed -- #NoMakeup movement. Last night, at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), Keys showed the world that she is holding to that stance. One would think this would not be a big deal because the world knew her new stance on wearing makeup. Yet, social media users who were not feeling it a few months ago are still holding a grudge, it seems.
