Introducing BAABS Beauty and OMG! Their "I'm Sprung Collection" Has Me Sprung!

You all, the obsession that I always have an continue to have is introducing you all to "NEW TO ME" beauty brands. BAABS Beauty of course is another one and you already guessed. This brand is Female-Owned, Black-Owned, and not just a makeup company but an actual beauty bar! I've always wanted to go to one of those, so I'll be making a trip. 

When it comes to makeup, one can never have enough and I think it is safe to say that Necia Boston, the owner of BAABS Beauty located in Greenville, North Carolina, can agree. Like Necia, falling into this industry was not coincidental - it was simply following our passion. Her professional beauty credentials include makeup artistry, esthetics, and educator. However, choosing to actually launch a brand in this competitive industry happened when she developed allergies to literally EVERYTHING ranging from food, topical body care products, and makeup. Knowing that she was not alone, she sought out alternative and the solution was Bless and Anointed Beauty Services aka BAABS Beauty

Before becoming a business owner, Necia worked as a Program Manager, LOVAAS/ABA Specialist where she provided in-home therapy for families whose children were on the Autism spectrum and also managed and trained after school and daycare providers to effectively work with and teach children with behavioral challenges. Whew! I really think that Necia Boston was on her way to becoming a saint which is what we definitely need and admire nowadays. 

I have had the opportunity to try the beautiful products offered by the brand from the "I'm Sprung Collection", which consisted of colorful and glossy lip colors, perfectly cut and beautifully crafted faux lashes and the most gorgeous eyeshadow palette that doesn't sting my the skin on my eyes. You all will love them, but first, I want you all to get to know Necia Boston a little more. Comments are always welcome.

"Stay ready, so you don't have to get ready. This applies to having a makeup routine, for any occasion, ready to load, as well as in life.  Stay ready to enjoy the moments, so you don't miss them trying to figure it all out."
