Black Defendant Denied Pants At Jail, Stands In Court Pantless

August 2016

A Black woman was forced into court with no pants on. No skirt was provided either.

On July 29th, a Black woman was transferred all the way from a Louisville prison into a Jefferson District Court… wearing a shirt. The woman was in prison for failure to complete a diversion program on a 2014 shoplifting charge.

SonicBLEND Antimicrobial Sonic Makeup Brush by Michael Todd Beauty Review

July 2016

20% Off the Antimicrobial Sonic Makeup Brush

Disclosure: I received this product free in return for my unbiased review. The opinions are 100% mine. My review reflects my personal experience with the new sonicBLEND makeup brush. I only recommend products or services I like and would be willing to pay for.

The makeup brush everyone should have.

Have you ever wished your makeup tools were self-cleaning? Or that instead of possibly clogging your pores your makeup and makeup brushes would make you appear perfect while actively making your skin flawless? Well, that doesn’t exist yet. But this antimicrobial makeup brush is the closest thing.

My skin is sensitive and became acne prone in my adult years. So, although I am a certified makeup artist, I rarely wear makeup.

So I was intrigued but skeptical when I was offered the chance to try this new antimicrobial sonic makeup brush. Since I was assured that my review could be honest no matter my opinion, I accepted it for review.

Michael Todd Beauty is a brand I’ve become familiar with via Ulta. I love that the brand is cruelty free and uses natural 100% organic ingredients in its skincare products.

The makeup brush for acne prone skin.

Michael Todd Beauty claims that this antibacterial makeup brush

“can help improve the overall health and condition of your skin by minimizing clogged pores as well as irritation from rubbing and stretching the skin which can occur with traditional makeup application.”

Do you know facts or stories behind how people are allegedly stretching their skin with traditional makeup application?

This piece of Michael Todd Beauty’s claim seems a bit of a stretch to me. 😉
