Hey Swickass community! I don’t even want to THINK about the last time I posted on this blog (because it has been a hot second). Since the last time I’ve posted, I’ve gotten several steps closer to obtaining my degree, signed the lease to my first apartment and accepted my first full time gig (#adulting). I wouldn’t quite call this a comeback, but I do plan to post regularly on Swickass to report on the latest beauty trends and makeup tutorials.
The gradual decline in temperature is an indicator that Fall is basically here. I decided to create my own fun Autumn look using the Anastasia Beverly Hills – Modern Renaissance Palette.
The song playing in my tutorial is by a good friend of mine, and upcoming St. Louis rapper, Jeremy Raymond. Listen to the full song here.

When he’s not getting busy in the boxing ring, Adrien Broner is in a studio working on music. Here’s Adrien Broners new single “Never Had It”. I listened to a couple of Adriens songs, but this one is my least favorite. The Versace freestyle is still his best work yet.
Stephen Collins who played Rev Eric Camden on the hit TV show “7th Heaven”, confessed on tape to his estranged wife that he molested several young girls dating back to 2012. Personally I feel that he should be locked up IMMEDIATELY! Also, I guess playing a God fearing man only went on when he had a camera and a mic in front of his face. Glad this came out, and lets hope that if there’s anybody else out here molesting children get caught just like Stephen.
TMZ is reporting that Lil Wayne and YMCMB is being sued by producer REO, for never paying him for the work he did for the song “Mirror” on Tha Carter IV album. The producer REO states he was promised a profit from the record Mirror, but never got paid. He’s looking to cash in on the 91k that he’s owed from Wayne and the YMCMB label. Seems like a lot of producers never get paid by the YMCMB camp, but they still do music for them…How is that possible?
Tina Knowles was recently a keynote speaker at a luncheon, where she gave her personal testimony on her marriage to Mathew Knowles and her happiness now. Miss Tina was introduced by Mrs. Creuzot (one of Tina’s close friends for over 30 years)– also the owner of Frenchy’s Chicken. At the 4:27 mark is when Miss Tina starts her speech.
From colorful, outrageous wigs to a more toned down look, YMCMB’s stunning leading lady covers the overseas L’uomo Vogue.
A few months back, former MMA fighter War Machine (Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver) brutally beat his ex-girlfriend porn star Christy Mack, and now thinks she deserves more.
Mack says War Machine broke up with her in May but for some reason showed up at her house at 2 AM on a Friday. She says he walked in, didn’t say a word but unleashed a beating on her friend. War Machine threw the friend out of the house and then she says he allegedly made her strip and shower in front of him, then beating began her resulting in 18 broken bones around her eyes, a broken nose, missing teeth, a fractured rib and ruptured liver. Mack says War Machine also “sawed much of my hair off with a dull knife.” He also threatened to rape her but was unable to perform. She ran out of the house naked, begging neighbors to help her, which one did and took her to the hospital.
War Machine was a fugitive for about a week until he was caught by U.S. Marshals and Simi Valley police in a hotel. Oh, and Dog the Bounty Hunter was present.
Since then, War Machine is facing 32 counts, multiple counts of battery, strangulation, kidnapping, coercion, burglary, and sexual assault– in addition to 2 counts of attempted murder against Mack. War Machine thinks he shouldn’t be charged at all and Mack deserves worse than what she got– well according to his handwritten letter from jail that TMZ obtained:
But look out for the #FREEWAR merchandise.
Thank God Mack is recovering well. Check out the video below.
Even if War Machine was attacked by Mack’s boyfriend first, there is NO WAY she deserve that brutal beating– War Machine is a trained professional! Domestic violence is NOT okay.
Kelis’s milkshake may have brought all the boys to the yard, but it turns out she’s a Cordon Bleu-trained saucier. She invited MUNCHIES into the kitchen to teach us how to make her signature jerk sauce.
Last weekend the Global Citizen Festival was held in New York City and many were surprised to see “Power Couple” Jay Z & Beyonce alongside with “Power Couple” Swizz Beatz & a glowing Alicia Keys. But a while back Keys did say her son Egypt and the Carters’ Blue Ivy have play dates.
