UZ 38 degree/99 degree lip treatment
UZ - 38°C/99°F LIP TREATMENT Man this stuff is so cool! It feels a lot like the Róen Kiss My... Lip Balms in the sense that it is technically a liquid lip balm, but this one is black. It does swatch black but it doesn’t look black on the lips unless you use a toooooon of it. It has some bronzey/coppery shimmer in it but it’s not crazy noticeable. If you use it as a topper over a lipstick it will make your lip color a little darker, just make sure not to put too much on or it’ll show up a little more black than you’d want. On its own this looks great too, it makes your natural lip color a little darker. I really like it, I’d like to try the green one next to see how that one looks. This is just such a unique color, I’ve never seen something like this before!
Lip balms I rated 4-5⭐️Which would I repurchase?
🤷🏻♀️I think I can be a generous reviewer at times...though I try to be as thorough as I can with product description & personal experience, sometimes it’s still difficult to choose how many ⭐️s to rate a product. I try to use x for a while before reviewing, but I’ll admit, I do get excited about something new sometimes, so I’ll do what I label: a ‘First Impressions’ review. I stand behind all of my reviews, it’s just me & my products, no PR or anything. However, when I feel like my opinion of a product greatly changes after time, ima let you guys know! 💄So this brings me to a first of a kind post for me... I’m a real lip balm addict, definitely one of my favorite products to try. Unless I absolutely hate it, I’ll empty every one to the last application lol. Why waste it since I use it so often in my dry climate🏔 ⛄️All these babies are on empty (+1 more in the next slide I forgot about & in all honesty, I already ate the cookie) 🏁So I’ll share how I feel about them now & which one I would repurchase (a couple I already have!) Full review of each in previous posts. ➕Let’s start with the positives! Rating went up: ALGENIST - Genius Liquid Collagen Lip Old rating: 4⭐️$35/.34 oz I used this for 6 weeks before a review due to the nature of the product. Though they claim it can work in 10 days, I wanted to give it a fighting chance. I had rated this 4⭐️ because I loved everything about it, but no my lips did not get bigger. (extensive before/after pics in my old review) So it will not change lip size, but hear me out... This has been a phenomenally effective lip serum, I don’t think I can give it up now! When my lips are super dry, this is what I reach for. The formula & ceramic applicator are cooling, but even in this cold weather I looove it. You massage lips & they become alive & healthy looking! Layer a balm over once the formula soaks in- think of it as a lip serum💕So yes, though $ I will repurchase, large amount-it’s lasted 5+ months! Stayed the same: ARMANI beauty - Neo Nude Ecstasy Balm $34/.1 oz 001 Sooo luxurious & silky with Caper oil as a moisturizer. I have repurchased here & there, but due to the $, can’t make it a regular thing. unpa.Cosmetics - Bubi Bubi Lip Ampoule $9/.35 oz New ultimate fav! Already repurchased & got 1 for my bf! sun bum - Signature SPF 30 Sunscreen Lip Balm $5/.15 oz Nothin fancy, but my go-to lip balm w/SPF. Great ingredients & price. Definite repurchase! ...went down: UZ - 38°C/99°F LIP TREATMENT Old rating: 4⭐️$20/.21 oz ±0 This treatment balm has very hefty claims; one being “you won’t need lip balm again” The tube is beautiful, but due to its shape, you can’t get any product on the applicator after a bit, texture is too thick. TRULY - Unicorn Fruit Lip Plumping Balm Old rating: 5⭐️$14/1 oz The 1 oz jar is a lot, but the moisture won’t last & if it melts it’s🗑
ORIGINS BLOOMING SHEER LIP BALM
ORIGINS - Blooming Sheer Lip Balm in Night Bloom & Totally Tulip Meet my favorite sheer lipstick!!! These are extremely moisturizing and plumping on the lips and the smell great too! The packaging is also super cute and colorful with the print in a matching shade. They give just enough color to tint your lips and moisturize them in a thick juicy layer. I love it! They all come in beautiful shades inspired by different shades of flowers and they all look super flattering on the lips✨

Mwah!! XO My favorite lip glosses and lip stains
1. BURT’S BEES - Tinted Lip Oil My favorite everyday gloss! Hydrating. Natural looking. Comes in a pen with a brush applicator. I’m wearing Carmel Cloud here. 2. HONEST - Honest Beauty Tinted Lip Balm This one is also a good hydrating gloss. More of a sheer wash. Less glossy. Wearing Fruit Punch here. 3. Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick Probably my least favorite in terms of hydration. But I love the Kool Aid stain color it gives. Wearing Jam here. 5. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain Most color. Feels satiny on lips. 6. BUXOM - Pillowpout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder I seriously love this stuff. It gives me just a little more definition and the color is like natural lip color amped up! Wearing Dolly here.
Generation G Looks Pretty Ggggood 👄
I love lipstick, but as someone who is always sipping, snacking and chewing gum, it can be a struggle to keep it on. That’s why I was excited to try Glossier’s Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick. It’s supposed to look sheer and a bit, um worn (? I couldn’t think of a better descriptive word!). I chose the lipstick in the shade Zip, which is a pretty poppy red. I always love this sort of orangey red shade because it makes my eyes look crazy blue. The lipstick does what it says it will do. It provides a sheer wash of color that is buildable. I love the way it looks. It also wears off in a nice, not too noticeable way. I’m giving it four out of five stars only because it’s a little uncomfortable to wear. If you have dry lips it will not feel nice. Honestly, if half stars were possible, I’d give this 4.5, but all in all, I’m a fan! I’m probably going to buy another shade or two. Which do you recommend? Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick

My lipstick 101
Lipstick is something that you never get enough! I mean, each of them has different shades, texture, and you can use them to create countless looks matching with your makeup. How can we say no! ◇ YSL Vernis A Levres Water Satin #613 Love this one!! I have recommended this to many friends and I introduce it to them as “like a cup of strawberry milkshake”. Though it seems to have a dark shade that’s more burgundy than red, it still makes your lip looks soft and tender. The credit should give to its texture. This new formula designed by YSL is super sheer that it's almost unobservable if you only apply one layer. By saying so I don't mean that this lipstick is difficult to get pigmented, instead you can easily build up the color as much as you want depends on how many layers you wanna reapply (and it won't get cakey and sticky!) Really think this product change my mind for lipstick satin. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Vernis à Lèvres Water Stain Lip Stain ◇ PAT MCGRATH LABS BlitzTrance Lipstick #072 Flesh Fatale PAT receives popularity because of its glittering eyeshadows, and they have developed it further to lipstick! I often prefer dark and vivid color when purchasing lipstick, this one is the only light-shade lipstick I own, and it's perfect to wear when you have no makeup on. Yes, this is a lipstick that can lighten up your dull skin and make your lip shine with its gold glitters. However, one disadvantage of it is that the glitters are big and gritty, and it does stay after the color wears off. PAT McGRATH LABS - BlitzTrance Lipstick ◇ MAC Amplified Lipstick #108 Dubonnet The oxblood color! Such a flattering shade which is a deep, cool-toned red and I love to match it with my heavy makeup to harmonize the overall look. It is perfect if you wanna create a charming atmosphere. Although I got warm-tone complexion, this color still looks beautiful and will make your skin brighter. It also has long-lasting power that stays after eating and drinking. MAC - Amplified Lipstick ◇ LANCOME Lacquer Liquid Lipstick #274 This one is not that famous like the other 3, but it's still my pick above all in winter! Instead of using vivid and high-saturation colors, I would use 274 because I prefer my winter looks to be low-key and implicit. Apply 274 independently, you will get a beige almond color, especially suitable for warm undertones. I personally love to apply this liquid lipstick as a final coat on top of other colors. If some colour is too bright and highly saturated, combined with 274 will hold down the overall effect and you are able to DIY your own ideal effect! LANCÔME - L'absolu Lacquer Gloss
My Daily Nude Liquid Lipsticks
As a collector of lip products, I am willing to try different colors and formulas. But in daily basis, my favorite color would be the nudes--especially with a little brown undertone inside. And this time I want to share 3 of my mostly used liquid lipsticks. 😝 Let’s start form the latest collection from Yves Saint Laurent called Water stain lip stain. And I picked the #610, nude underwater, which is a brown nutmeg nude. This is a water-enriched stain, very lightweight, fresh and non-sticky at all. I usually do several layers, because the color is quite sheer but still buildable. The only thing I don’t like this product is that if I lick my lips accidently, it tastes very bitter and I feel like being poisoned (just kidding). Overall, I like this collection and this almond nude color, really juicy and lightweight, perfect for daily makeup. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Vernis à Lèvres Water Stain Lip Stain The next one I really love and almost use it up is Lancôme L’absolu Lacquer in shade #274, beige sensation. It is a pink brown stain and buildable for high-impact color and shine. I usually do two layers, the first one covers my full lips and use my finger to blend it well, and then my second layer will focus on the inner part of my lips, which will blur my lip line and make my lips look naturally plump. This one is the cheapest among three products and I can use it even without makeup. I really hope everyone can give it a try, and you will love it! LANCÔME - L'absolu Lacquer Gloss The last one is from Bobbi Brown, the Crushed Liquid Lipstick collection named Haute Cocoa, which is rich brown nude color. Because this is not a lip stain, so it won’t last after eating or drinking like the other two. But the full-coverage formula offers great pigment and moisture, so sometimes I use it like a tinted lip balm especially during winter when my lips are always dry. BOBBI BROWN - Crushed Liquid Lipstick What are your daily choices of lipsticks? Leave comments so that I can give them a try. 🤩

DUPE ALERT: $8 VS. $34 LIPSTICK
I found an amazing dupe! And it can save you $26!!! UNDONE BEAUTY - Light On Lip I love the formula of this lipstick. It’s super moisturizing and never leaves my lips feeling dry or parched. It adds a punch of color and leaves a slight shimmer on the lips (the shimmer is very subtle and unnoticeable from afar)! Charlotte Tilbury - Superstar Lips Lipstick This formula gives the perfect tint of color without any shimmer. It has a nice shiny finish and adds a little bit of moisture (but not nearly has nourishing as Undone Beauty’s). Overall, I would say that the end result of both products (and these two particular shades) are basically identical! The only difference I noticed when wearing both is that Undone Beauty’s lipstick is more nourishing on the lips and keeps my lips feeling softer! I highly recommend trying it out because it’s only $8 and gives a beautiful result!
Charlotte Tilbury Superstar Lips Princess Kiss
This is the Superstar Lips lipstick in the shade Princess Kiss. It’s quite similar to Pillowtalk but slightly more cool toned. These are super emollient, glossy lipsticks. I love this one! Charlotte Tilbury - Superstar Lips Lipstick

Makeup For Video Interviews 🖥✨#CheriePartner
As a May 2020 graduate, I’ve been doing a lot of interviews and phone calls over the quarantine period for jobs and internships. Along the way I picked a few key tips for achieving a flawless, professional makeup look perfect for video calls. All I want is to make the impression that I’m put together and perfect for the role! Of course, everyone has different kinds of makeup looks, and specific parts of makeup that make it “signature” to them (like a strong winged liner, or bold lip, or even a super bare natural face!). But for me, my “signature” looks is something quite fresh-faced, glowy skin, defined eyes and a tinted lip! Tips: 1) Stay true to yourself! If you never wear a red lip, don’t wear a red lip to the interview. If you always have a beautiful eyeshadow look on, definitely put some eyeshadow on! The truth is, when you feel most like yourself, the more confident you will appear to others. 2) Video calls tend to wash you out, so if you’re applying a color product maybe add a little more than usual! Here is what I used: ￼￼HOURGLASS - Illume Sheer Color Trio This is a the perfect product to bronze, blush AND highlight the face! The formula is super creamy and soft, but definitely packs a punch with its pigment. The highlight also gives off a beautiful glow on camera! ￼￼ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Radiant Concealer I don’t feel the need for a foundation on camera as blemishes are generally not visible depending on video resolution. But I have really bad under eye circles that can make me look tired, so I always want a little concealer just to brighten up my face and eyes. This one is medium coverage with a natural finish on the skin. ￼￼COLOURPOP - Brow Boss Pencil I always define my brows because they help to frame the face. This is an amazing inexpensive one that has the perfect waxy formula for adding fullness to the brows that looks natural. ￼￼NUDESTIX - Magnetic Luminous Eyeshadow Defining my eyes is important to me because it’s a feature of my face that I really like. So a little glowy eyeshadow helps to bring attention to my eyes, helps me look a little more awake and defines it a little more. ￼￼MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Mascara Full Fan Effect I know it’s near impossible to see individual lashes on video call but it helps a lot with defining my eyes! It also makes me feel more put together too just because I’d feel off if I had a full face of makeup and didn’t have mascara on. ￼￼lisa eldridge - True Velvet Lipstick in Velvet Muse This is one of my favorite matte lipsticks because it’s super pigmented, non-drying but gives a matte finish. I add a little balm beforehand to keep my lips moisturized and to sheer the color a little. This is definitely a my-lips-but-better kind of shade.
BEST LIPSTICKS FOR BLOTTED LIPS
I love a soft, blurry lip look because it looks so effortless and natural, but super long-lasting and low maintenance! Here are my top choices for a blotted lip: 1) lisa eldridge - True Velvet Lipstick in Velvet Muse This velvet lip formula is super creamy and pigmented, but doesn’t cling to dry patches! I usually dot it on the lips and pat to blend! 2) Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick in Like & Cake This lipstick was formulated to give a blotted, stained effect to the lips. It’s incredibly creamy but sheer - a very unique formula compared to all my lipsticks. Just one layer of this gives a very natural stained look- a few extra swipes makes it more of a pigmented matte lip! 3) COLOURPOP - Ultra Matte Lip in Doozy This liquid lipstick is super sheer and lightweight so it gives the lips a soft wash of color without being too overpowering. I usually wear a balm underneath because it tends to be more drying than the Lisa Eldridge lipsticks and Glossier Gen G lipsticks.
GLOSSIER VINYLIC LIP SWATCH pony
This is the Glossier Vinylic Lip in the shade Pony. It’s a beautiful warm mauvey taupe shade. I love how buildable this product is. It’s also very comfortable on the lips and easy to apply on the go. #Glossier - Vinyllic Lip[products]#[FiveStars]
J-BEAUTY FAVES: BUTTERY/SOFT LIPSTICKS
SHISEIDO - VisionAiry Gel Lipstick There is no other lipstick like this one. The Shiseido VisionAiry Gel Lipstick’s formula is so unique and lightweight, but punchy with color and melty at the same time. The finish is satin (matte with a bit of a sheen). I love the way these lipsticks look on me. I have the shades Rose Muse (L) and Woodstock (R). They melt onto my lips so nicely and work really well when I want a blotted lip effect. You truly don’t need to apply lip balm before because they’re so buttery and soft that they just blend right in. They keep my lips moisturized even with all the color payoff- I love it!
SHISEIDO-VisionAiry Gel Lipstick
This liquid lipstick from Bobbi Brown is so silky smooth. I love that it’s a buildable shade so you can have a light gloss on your lips or you can add more to darken it some. I love that it’s not sticky on the lips. It’s smooth and feels amazing on the lips. For $27, they have so many awesome shades to choose from and they are great as lipstick toppers but also so wonderful by themselves. BOBBI BROWN - Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss
BOBBI BROWN-Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss
Charlotte Tilbury Collagen Lip Bath
This is my newest CT purchase – the collagen lip bath in the shade Pillowtalk. I love this formula – it’s super glossy but not sticky and feels very moisturizing. Plus, anything Pillowtalk is a win for me. Charlotte Tilbury - Collagen Lip Bath Gloss
Charlotte Tilbury-Collagen Lip Bath Gloss
Most used 💄 the glossier generation g lip stains are my tried and true🙌🏼 I’m not a matte kinda gal but when I want a quick pop of color, I know what to turn to. It is, however, on the drier side. So definitely make sure to moisturize your lips prior!! Another downside is that 2/3 of my tubes are broken 😭 other than that, I believe it’s worth the price! Giving them a 9/10✨
