Products for Juicy Lips 👄
Lips don’t get enough love! Many of the lipsticks we use can strip our lips of moisture and we often don’t put that moisture back into our lips. The skin on our lips is so thin and can be easily broken if it becomes too dry. Lips have 3-5 layers of skin while we have up to 16 layers on the rest of our face. This is why we have to keep them hydrated at all times. I have tried so many lip scrub brands but nothing has been as effective as my DIY lip scrub. Ingredients: - Sugar - Coconut oil - Essential oils (I use peppermint & lemon) You need equal parts sugar and coconut oil. Add essential oils to you liking. To fill the mason jar in the photo I used about 20-25 drops. In addition to exfoliating my lips I use Kuza Naturals 100% African Shea Butter to keep my lips soft and supple throughout the day. This product is also great for your body. It is sold at my local CVS but it can also be found on Amazon. Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Sticks look and feel like tinted lip balms. They are lightweight and allow your natural lip color to shine through. They give you’re lips hydration and shine without being overly glossy. I LOVE this product! They have such amazing shades and I think I might get them all.

PERFUME: 1 Full Sized & 13 Samples @ 1/2 Price🤯
I was gifted this amazing perfume sampler by Sephora. It sells in stores for $65 but most of these fragrances usually go for $100+. The kit includes 13 popular perfume samples from high end brands and a scent certificate. You can sample these perfumes from the comfort of your home and once you make your selection you will use the certificate to redeem a full sized product. Plus you get 2-3 uses out of each sample 😜 I can be super indecisive when it comes to fragrances. Everything always smells amazing in the store. It takes me forever to decide which scent I’d like to purchase and when I get home it smells completely different. If you are as indecisive as me when it comes to fragrance then this is for you! Here are my top 3 fragrances of the samples: 🥇YVES SAINT LAURENT - Black Opium Eau de Parfum Duo Set I love the way this smells. This scent is SEXY! It is warm and spicy. Perfect for date night or a night out. 🥈 BURBERRY - My Blush This is a pretty scent and the packaging for the actual product is pretty too. It is floral with a bit of spice. Can be worn day or night. 🥉TOCCA - Gia This was close to being a tie with the Burberry perfume. This scent is amazing as well. It is floral yet fresh. Definitely a daytime scent.

EYESHADOW: Pigments to Die For 😍
I love a bold lid and need my eyeshadow to really pop. Eyeshadow primers help but unless the pigment of the shadow itself is vibrant then you will just run through the shadow quickly having to pack each shade onto your lid especially if you have darker skin like I do. Here are some of the eyeshadows palettes that I feel like have lasted me forever because they are super pigmented . 💥Huda Beauty Obsessions Palette - Sapphire: Huda Beauty has never disappointed me. The colors in this palette are bold and shimmery. A little of these colors goes a long way. The colors are so luxurious I really only use this palette on special occasions. 💥BH Cosmetics 120 Color Eyeshadow Palette: This palette was less than $20 and comes with a variety of 120 colors. Some of the shades are more pigment rich than others so don’t expect every single color to be high end quality but there are so many gems in this palette and it is a fraction of the the price of some of the higher end palettes. 💥Beauty Bakerie Game of Cones - Fury of the Oven Palette: I am in love with this palette. The colors are so sexy and the pigments are so rich. I can wear this day or night. This palette is less than $20 and feels as luxurious as a high end product. 💥Urban Decay Naked Heat: This is my FAVORITE palette. I use it all of the time. The colors are so flirty and can be worn around the clock. It is full of earth tones both matte and shimmery. Every color on this palette is gorgeous. 💥Urban Decay Naked 2: This is an oldie but a goodie. The colors on this palette are perfect for a Smokey eye. Most of the colors on this palette are shades of black and grey so I mostly wear these on a night out but it does have a few brighter colors that can be used for a fresh daytime look. 💥 L.A. Colors Block Eyeshadow Palette - Cool: This palate is $5 and the colors are gorgeous. It is great for a Smokey eye or an evening going out look. All of the colors are surprisingly super pigmented. I love the purples in this palette. $5 well spent!

OXY FAVs For Acne, Oil, Dirt, and Pores 🤯
I love this brand! Their OXY - Acne Medication With Benzoyl Peroxide helped me through some hard times when I was younger and suffered from severe acne. The Benzoyl Peroxide in it really helped subdue my extreme breakouts. Now that I’m older my acne isn’t as severe and Salicylic Acid is enough to keep my breakouts at bay. 🌼OXY Volcanic Ash Acne Wash: This product works amazing for keeping my skin clear of breakouts. This is apart of my daily skincare routine. The charcoal in it draws out the dirt from my pores leaving my skin looking and feeling fresh. It has menthol in it, which I like, because it gives my face a tingly clean sensation. Beware not to get it too close to your eyes though. Menthol feels good on the skin but it’s not something that can be rinse out of your eyes you will have to wait until the tingling stops. 🌼OXY 3-in-1 Acne Pads: This product is super strong. It contains alcohol so I would not recommend for people with sensitive skin but if you have oily skin like me this is great for oil/dirt control. It also contains Salicylic Acid which is good for breakouts. This product can be super drying so I make sure to follow up with a hydrating moisturizer to add some moisture back into my skin.

Nyakio: Natural Organic Skincare That I Love 🥰
I discovered this brand a few years ago and I absolutely love their products. The are naturally derived and use certified organic ingredients. Not only do they do amazing things for my skin but it makes me feel amazing that the products don’t have any harsh chemicals in them. The can be ordered online from Target! 🌸Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Face Polish: I really love this product. It is a physical exfoliant made from ground coffee beans. It really helps get the dirt and oil out of my face and after the redness subdues it leaves my skin looking energized. The coffee can be harsh so I wouldn’t recommend for people with sensitive skin. The one qualm I have about this product is the packaging. The top has a whole that opens and closes by twisting and sometimes moisture can seep through and can leave a stain! 🌸Nyakio Kenyan Coffee Body Scrub: This is very a very similar product to the face polish. I like to use it before I shave to prevent ingrown hairs. It leaves my skin feeling soft. 🌸Nyakio Chinese Rice Exfoliating Cleansing Powder: This is my FAVORITE product on their line and one of my top 2 exfoliants of all time. The powder mixes with water to create a paste. The grounds are so tiny and gentle that you can use this product everyday. This is great for people that want to exfoliate but don’t like the harshness or irritation that exfoliants with bigger grounds can have. 🌸Nyakio Maracuja & Yangu Soothing Oil: This oil is nice and light. It hydrates your face without leaving your skin feeling and looking greasy. This is a product I use when I’m not wearing makeup and my skin is looking a little dull. It will leave you with a subtle glow. 🌸Nyakio Sweet Almond Cleansing Oil Balm: This balm is great for taking off makeup. It melts in the palm of your hand and allows makeup to slide off with a wipe of a towel of cleansing pad. However, the oil is very thick and can leave your face looking greasy. It takes a while to wash off with hot water. 🌸Nyakio African Black Soap Purifying Mud Mask: This mask is a triple-threat. It works to tighten pores, reduce oil production, and has tiny beads in it so once the product dries you can rub it on your face as an exfoliant. Once it dries on your face you can see little wet dots on the surface where the mask is working to pull the oil from your pores. Immediately after using the product your skin looks fresh and with continued used you will see visibly smaller pores. 🌸Nyakio Baobab Lip Balm: I use this product everyday. It leaves my lips soft, supple, hydrated and adds shine.

Kiss Press On Nail💅🏻
KISS - KISS Jelly Fantasy Jelly Nails Oh this set is amazing! I used this nail set for the first time ever & I’m in love 🥰💖 They are so pretty & easy to work with. It has such a cute blush pink shade that goes with any tone. I have neutral light undertone & thought it would be too pink but it looks so nice. I used file & nail trimmer to shape the nails & it works! No cracks or breaks. It’s actually really sturdy. The one with glitter is a little thicker than the rest of the set but it’s workable✨ I recommend this set for beginners as well. #CherieCreator

Hack to clean makeup brushes
I had never heard of cleaning your makeup brushes with Zote laundry soap before until I saw this hack on tick toc. I thought I’d give it a try I saw several videos where they just place the soap in the sink and rub the makeup brushes over the soap bar and rinse them. That seemed like a waste of soap to me. Then I saw the video below where they put the zote in a glass jar and I thought that would be quarantine project & a cute idea, and would save on waste Tick toc video https://vm.tiktok.com/nf9J6A/ Materials needed to make your own jar 1): Zote laundry soap $1.00 2): Small Glass jar or container 3): boiling water 4): vegetable peeler or vegetable shredder Steps to make your own jar 1): Use a vegetable peeler to slice the zote soap In thin slices 2): put slices in glass jar or container of Choice leave room for water 3): Pour boing water over the zote soap I stirred mine a little. Then leave it, The video said a hour and half but I let mine dry overnight. To Clean Make Up Brushes 1) wet brush & rub over zote soap in jar in Circular motion. 2): rinse the brush under running water rub Bristles with your fingers until the water runs clear and repeat step 1 if necessary. 3): get a old cloth and lay the brushes flat and let them dry. I highly recommend this hack it was easy and my makeup brushes look brand new and smell great. Try it out and tell me what you think. #Zote - Soap[products]#[FiveStars] This is some amazing stuff. It’s only a $1.00. It’s highly concentrated laundry soap made in Mexico. I used it to clean my makeup brushes but you can also make your own laundry detergent.
Natural Exfoliator 🐝 ￼
Skin type: Fair, combination with eczema and rosacea Scrubee is one of my favorite products from lush. Being from lush it’s fresh, vegan and handmade. Originally it looked like a bumblebee, with black strips that’s the exfoliator part made up of coconut shells and almonds grounded up. The rest is this amazing Moisturizer concoction of coca butter, honey, Shea butter with coconut oil, Brazilian orange. It leaves your ur skin so smooth, soft, smell amazing & moisturized all day It’s great for people with all skin types. Especially for people with sensitive skin, and eczema. Scrubee will usually last me 2 to 3 weeks depending on how much I use it. I recommended this product for anyone, it is priced a little high at $8.95 for the 3.1 oz bar. I think that it’s worth to treat your skin. The nearest lush for me is 2 hours away so when I go I buy a couple. If you want to order online they start at a shipping charge of 6.00 and goes up.

An empty body wash I will repurchase in 2020!
The sol de Janeiro Brazilian 4 play moisturizing shower cream gel is a creamy, lathering body wash that gently nourishes and cleanses the skin! This can be solutions for dryness, dullness, and uneven texture. The fragrance family of this is warm and spicy and is like warm and sweet gourmands. The texture of this body wash is very thick creamy and very soft on the skin, it feels amazing! I absolutely love using this in the shower is is so soothing and smells absolutely amazing just like salted caramel, pistachio, and vanilla. I have used it for about 6 months from just seeing a lot of hype from it and how it smells absolutely amazing! I have repurchased this about two times and just ran out again, so I will need to repurchase in 2020 soon! It is so hydrating and didn’t break me out, it’s so made my body a lot softer. I would definitely recommend this to others it is so worth the hype! It is very worth it for $25 for 13oz which is so good!🥥🍍SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel

I'm good for switching up concealer like I do underwear. But this one here?? I haven't stopped using it since I got it 🙌🏾 The toofaced Born This Way Sculpting Concealer is the BEST concealer I've tried in a while!! I'm talking full coverage with a creamy formula that's hydrating so it never looks cakey & it doesn't crease either 👏🏾 I couldn't settle on a highlighting shade at first so I grabbed both Chestnut & Maple. Maple is a bit lighter so I like to use her when I want a more pronounced highlight or strong contour. While I use Chestnut everyday for subtle brightening 😊 Cocoa is clearly my contour shade. Not gonna lie. It took me a LONG ass time to break away from my iconic Fenty Match Stix & use something else. But I can't lie. Using a liquid to contour looks SO much better than a cream 🤷🏾♀️ The finish was absolutely beautiful!
