Show your lips a little L-O-V-E!

I don’t think caring for your lips gets the hype it deserves. For me, I didn’t really think about my lips too much until I burned them really badly back in 2015 while on vacation. I began reading up on sun damage for lips, and what signs of aging for lips looked like, I started a more conscientious routine. WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR LIPS AS WE AGE? Like the rest of your skin, as we age, our lips lose their plump youthful look. However, the skin on your lips is actually much thinner than the rest of your face (by about half as many layers - that’s why they appear pink!). Here are a few signs of lip aging, that while inevitable, can definitely be slowed with proper care:
Dry lips: we tend to lose the ability to create natural moisture for lips as we age. So they will appear drier and drier as we get older.
Thinner lips: this one sucks big time. But as we get older the depletion of collagen makes your upper lip thin out (and flatten). Another unfortunate factor if you’ve already got thin lips to begin with, you’ll begin to notice a difference a little earlier than those with bigger lips.
Sun Damage: applying sunscreen to your lips is not really something most people think about as frequently as the rest of your face or body. But its SO important to keeping your lips youthful in appearance. Photo aging on lips makes them darker, and also blurs the line between your lips and surrounding skin. Think of it like little bits of patch work blending both skin colours.
Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Sometimes referred to as “smokers’ lines” these are the sharp lines that can be seen when you pucker your lips. Even if you’ve never smoked, these begin to make an appearance in your late 20s/early 30s. This is a result of dehydration, sun damage, and puckering your lips (for me, drinking with straws 😂).
HOW TO PREVENT LIP DAMAGE?
SPF lip products. Always. I rotate what I use, but since I spend a lot of time outside running I like to use something more affordable due to how fast I go through it. sun bum - Original SPF 30 Sunscreen Lip Balm Key Lime
is my fav right now. It smells awesome and I find it very hydrating. Also it’s like $3-4, so I stock up in the summer months and carry it with me everywhere.
Moisturize: This doesn’t mean only products, it also means drink more water! I’m a culprit for over doing the caffeine, but I find when I skip the water, my lips are a pretty good indicator. Aside from this I use LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
not only at night, but when I’m just sitting around the house and need a little extra hydration. BURT’S BEES - Strawberry Lip Balm
and fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15
also in the rotation!
Exfoliate: like the rest of your skin, clearing dry/dead skin cells works wonders to make them appear more plump! I use a DIY scrub, post here: https://t.cherie.com/J1VBSo1/
Happy lip loving✌🏼

Finally trying Laneige lip mask
Worth the hype? I love lip balm so I really wanted to try the laneige lip mask that I’ve heard so much about it. I wasn’t super pumped about the price. $22 is a lot for a lip balm😂 but I actually found this at TJmaxx for $15 so I decided to pick it up! I used it last night and I absolutely love how the texture feels on my lips. It stays on for a long time and doesn’t soak in right away which I love. I would say the only downside is the price! Is it completely necessary? No, but it is a nice treat and it will last a long time😊 LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask

5 for the Season - Fall Favorites 🍁
🌞Yes I know technically fall ended about a week ago (...week ago) and I’ve DEF been slippin on my pimpin but to be fair, there isn’t a huge difference in temperature when it comes to SoCal. That being said, even though the sun is shining and the weather is warm, we still experience a fair amount of dryness with the drop in humidity levels, fire season 🔥, and Santa Ana winds. Fighting dryness and promoting hydration is always my number one goal this time of year. LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask theeeee best lip 👄 mask EVER! I only ever purchase the original berry flavor, but this is great at not only conditioning the lips, but also holds a large amount of moisture and hydration on the lips. I’d be interested to hear how the other flavors or “shades” work. Holler at ya girl.  - 5.5 Licorice PH Balancing Cleansing Toner I can’t even begin to count exactly how many bottles of this I have gone through. It has become one of the major and nonnegotiable items in my routine. I live in an urban area apartment complex, and unfortunately we have hard water. Hard water can strip your face and throw off your skin’s pH level. No matter what cleanser I’m using, I always feel tight and dry. 🌵 I wipe this on my face, neck, and décolleté area. Not only does this balance the pH level and hydrate my skin, but the licorice root is AMAZING when it comes to preventing dark spots and healing acne scars. I scar SO easily and this, coupled with my vitamin C, has helped my acne marks heal twice as fast. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream my FAV, no frills moisturizer! I don’t rely on moisturizers for anything other thanmoisture. I leave all treatments to my serums and masks. I always use this as my nighttime moisturizer to lock in my serums, but since it’s colder 🥶(relatively lol) and drier in the fall, I get to save some funds 💵 and I use this day and night. I typically buy the mini because it’s in a squeeze tube and I’m extremely paranoid about dipping my fingers in tubs of products (hello bacteria 🦠.) Since I recently found a set of adorable silver and gold metal spoons made for cosmetics I finally purchased the big tub. So much bang for your buck! MAC - MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Finishing Mist 💕 💕 💕 this is by far my favorite setting spray. I always try new ones when they come out, and I always run back to MAC. In the summer I alternate between setting spray and setting powder (you do not need both!!!) but once the dry weather of fall hits 🍂 I won’t let setting powder touch my face and I rely solely on Fix+ since setting powder tends to be much more drying. Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil the most underrated product. I continued using this after I had my son for fall and winter dry skin. I wear at night under my body lotion and on days when I shave 🪒, I use this like an aftershave right after I get out of the shower.

Sephora Sale: tried & true with some new! 🛍
If you haven’t yet stopped by Sephora for the holiday sale, make sure you do! The sale ends 11/9 and Beauty Insiders get 10% off, VIBs have 15% off, and Rouges have 20% off! Shop soon to take advantage of the sale for holiday shopping or a treat for yourself! TATCHA - The Liquid Silk Canvas: Featherweight Protective Primer - I absolutely love this primer! As a person with combination skin, I try to not use heavy primers so that my pores aren’t clogged and my makeup doesn’t last, but this primer is so light. In addition to making your skin look great by blurring pores and lines while reducing oil, the floral fragrance and packaging are beautiful. On light makeup days, I love wearing this, spot concealer, and a light round of setting powder as a base. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Toner - This is a new find for me that I picked up the other day and have already seen incredible results from! My typical combination skin has been dry in patches on my forehead and nose making it hard for me to wear foundation and or see any effects from my other skincare products. I decided to change my toner after seeing some reviews of this online and I’m so glad I picked it up. The fragrance is minimal, if any at all, and the hydrating properties are simply incredible. My skin feels smooth and the dry flakes have vanished over two days. Yesterday, I was able to wear my foundation for the first time since the summer without my skin feeling tight or having to slather on moisturizer. If you struggle with dry skin, take advantage of the squalane in this toner to revamp your skin! NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer - I purchased this concealer after hearing Mikayla rave about it on tik tok and needing a replacement for my benefit - Benefit Boi-Ing Industrial Strength Concealer that I’ve used for about a year! In comparing the NARS and Benefit, the NARS concealer has about twice the product! I’m incredibly pleased with this concealer’s ability to blend into the skin, be matte while not drying, and the pot packaging! If you’re looking for something to coverup a spot here and there, this is it. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum - I have an undying love for fresh products that began with thefresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 about two years ago. Since then, I have tried thefresh - Rose Face Mask , fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner , fresh - Lotus Anti- Aging Daily Moisturizer , and many more. This product is no exception and is one that is hydrating while not greasy. I’m totally aware that oil in the name can be unappealing, but it provides a nice healthy glow, softens, soothes, and absorbs so quickly. This is great face serum/oil that I recommend to people with dry, combination, normal skin and those who are not sensitive to fragrance.

Pink ladies 💅🏼
Loving the packaging on these guys! Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color love this stuff, but not quite as much as expected. I got the puff color, and while I love the color, it’s too pigmented for me. I end up having to rub it all over my cheeks just to make the color a bit lighter, then half my face is pink, instead of just the spots I want. It may be user error though, so I’ll keep trying. It truly lasts throughout the day, and I love the texture—super smooth on my cheeks. KYLIE COSMETICS - Kylighter this is meh for me. Again, possibly too pigmented. It really just takes a single swipe of the brush and you are good to go with pretty intense highlight. fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 I was so excited to buy this stuff because the reviews are amazing! However, since I was getting it more for the chapstick/SPF purposes, I wish it wasn’t quite so dark on my lips. It really looks like lipstick, but the color doesn’t last like a lipstick. tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush For the life of me, I cannot get this stuff to stick on my makeup brush. No color comes off, so I’ve pretty much given up on making it work. Hanskin - Hyaluron Skin Essence I use this when my skin is feeling extra dry, usually paired with my moisturizer! I haven’t noticed a huge difference when I use it, however. KYLIE COSMETICS - Vitamin C Serum this is the first Vitamin C serum I have used, so I don’t have much to compare it to, and therefore don’t want to give it a super high or super low rating! I really like the consistency—it feels more like a moisturizer, but sinks into the skin quickly. It smells slightly odd, but that didn’t bother me. Overall, I think it was somewhat brightening for me, but I didn’t feel like I saw a major change. Glossier. - Wowder Weightless Finishing Powder love this stuff a lot on my skin, but the packaging is frustrating. It has sort of a net material on the inside, making it kind of difficult to get powder out. I do feel like it sits nicely on my face and lasts throughout the day, just wish I didn’t have such a hard time getting it out!

I’m amazed over how much pink
I’m amazed over how much pink products I have and Pink is not my favourite colour. Guess what my favourite colour is? ✨ Anyways, how are your lips? Are they well cared for or are they chapped AF? Here are som pink products for your lips so they can be pretty and rosy and kissable at all times 💋 ~ Laneige Lip Mask ~ So this is my all time favourite night lip mask, it’s amazing, smells wonderful and lasts FOREVER 👏🏼 ~ The Body Shop Lip balm ~ It’s practical, it’s solid and smells beautiful. The part isn’t as good as others though. ~ ACO Stay Soft Lips ~ I tried it and loved it! It’s super , very glossy and shimmery too ✨ ~ The Rituals lip gloss ~ This one is something I put on my nude lipsticks for the glossy look, it gives me moisture during the day if I want to reapply my lipstick and gloss.

Fresh Lips!!!
Fresh Lips!!!
I just bought 4 fresh lip care products. They are Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy, Sugar Lip Polish Exfoliator, Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy, and Sugar Peach Hydrating Lip Balm fresh - Sugar Lip Polish Exfoliatorhas a sweet scent and feels relatively gentle, but it's a bit too greasy, leaving an oil film on the lips even after you wash it off.  I highly recommend fresh - Sugar Dream Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy, which is their star product. I have dry, peeling lips but after using this, they don't peel anymore. I usually use it as a lip primer before applying lipstick and now even matte lipstick doesn't dry my lips. fresh - Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapyclaims to lighten lip lines. I usually apply a little of it at night and it's absorbed easily. I don't feel it lightening my lips lines for now, but it probably takes longer to achieve that. fresh - Sugar Hydrating Lip Balm-Blood Orange has a sweet peach scent. I usually use this lip mask after the serum is completely absorbed, then wake up with amazing lips the next day. Overall, I like all four of these products.

Current favs for smooth & plum
Current favs for smooth & plump lips ………………………………………………………………………………………… 👄Grande Cosmetics “GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper”: ok I am currently obsessed with this…I would even go as far to say it is the best lip plumper that I have ever used! I love the creamy texture, it lasts a while, & I can feel my lips plumping (without the sting that some plumpers cause-this causes a slight tingling sensation). I received a mini version of this in a Sephora play box and after just a few uses ordered the full-size. I now have 2 full size (in color: clear) so that I will have one as backup! It’s infused with “Volulip”, hyaluronic acid, niacin & polypeptides to soothe chapped skin, plump, moisturize, condition, smooth & boost natural collagen production. . 👄Laneige “Lip Sleeping Mask”: I sleep with this on my lips pretty much every single night! It feels amazing on my lips (I am in love with the soft texture), smells so good (I have berry flavor) & leaves my lips moisturized and smooth in the morning. I used to constantly suffer from chapped lips in the morning but as soon as I started using this, my lips are always silky smooth when I wake up! It’s comprised of vitamin C + antioxidants (to soothe & soften) & moisture-wrap technology (forms an eight-hour time release moisturizing layer over lips). One thing I do want to note is that this isn’t the best for HEALING chapped lips-when my lips are chapped, I like to use firstaidbeauty Ultra Repair Intensive Lip Balm overnight, and then turn to this lip sleeping mask once they are healed to prevent them from becoming chapped. ………………………………………………………………………………………… ✨I love my berry lip sleeping mask but have heard that I need to try the vanilla and grapefruit…

Best Lip Sleeping Mask EVER!!!!
Best Lip Sleeping Mask EVER!!!!
This is a must have product everyone should have for baby-soft lips after waking up in the morning. So my skin’s so dry and my lips too. Especially in winter, basic lip balm cannot make my chapped lips disappear, and sometimes, my lips get worse, even bleeding. But after using this product last year, my lips becomes so incredible. No more dry, cracked and peeling lips. I noticed that in the third use. I still remember last winter, my lips were so bad, a lot of dead skins and cracked lines on it, and it was bleeding too. So in the morning after the second night, when I woke up and washed my face, the dead skins were gone away, and my lips feel better, no cracked lines and it just stopped bleeding. I was amazed by the results. In the morning, you can use your finger to scrub your lips gently. You will notice the dead skin appearing. I know this product’s so pricey but it’s worth checking out. I use this product so frequently, every night as a lip balm. I bought it in Jan 19 and now it’s June 20 but it’s still half of product waiting for me. So I think it’s not too expensive, isn’t it? Also, after more than one year using it, I see that my lips turn a little but pinky so sometime when going out I’m using lipstick just lip balm and it’s still good on my face. And one more thing, unless I have chapped lips, I won’t put too much on my lips, just a thin layer is enough. Overall, I feel more confident now when using lipstick because it has no crack lines or peeling skin on my lips though I always put a thin layer of lip balm on it before putting lipstick!

Is this cult classic lip mask really worth it?💕
Is this cult classic lip mask really worth it?💕
I know we’ve all heard about the LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask . It has such a cult classic following of being the number one lip mask on the market. But I constantly find myself wondering if it’s really worth it? For $20 you get .7 oz of product. Laneige claims it is a leave on lip treatment that soothes and moisturizes the lips to target fine lines and wrinkles. They have a Berry Mix Complex ™️ to give it its sweet berry scent/flavor and Moisture Wrap Technology™️ to create a barrier for the lips to lock in moisture. I’ve had mine four months now and with nightly use I’m about halfway through. This will definitely last you a while! A little bit does go a long way with this. I love the scent/smell which to me smells like bubble gum more than a berry mix. It has a thicker consistency that costs the lips which I prefer in a lip balm. To me I love having that thick mask of product coating my lips. If you enjoy that as well you might like this. That being said though this does nothing for me in the long term. It doesn’t add any moisture into my lips or help chapped lips. This is more of a luxury product for me. One that I feel good applying and feels good while it’s on. When I wake up in the morning I feel no benefits from having it on the night before. So it’s really up to you if you find it worth it or not. It doesn’t give any benefits I can see but I do really enjoy using the product nightly and would probably repurchase in the future.

🌿Price: $20 🌿What it is: A leave-on lip mask which soothes and moisturizes. 🌿My thoughts: I was never a fan of lip balms as they tend to overwhelm me with their stickiness. Due to that, I barely ever wear chapstick and my lips aren’t in the greatest condition. This lip mask was my second one I’ve eve tried, first one being the lip mask from Awake Beauty. Quite frankly, I’m in love. I’m not huge on citrus, but I love how juicy this lip mask is. I put it on before sleep and wake up with soft lips, it works while I zzz away! The texture is super soft and feels pillowy on your lips. The little brush the mask comes with is super helpful when applying the mask. 🌿Would I repurchase? Hmm.. I think yes. This is one of the only products that has given me these kind of amazing results. It doesn’t irritate the skin around my lips which is a big bonus. I know it will last me a while, but I’m exited to finish it and try a new flavor. LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
