Mac fans here!!!
Mac is one of my first choice brands of cosmetics. High cost performance and a wide range of products are two attractive points, no matter skin care products or cosmetics. And most importantly! New products are released very fast. In recent years, MAC has paid special attention to collaboration, such as fashion designers, Disney, and superstars. I can’t wait to share my some mac products! eye shadow, lipstick and primer. For the eye shadow, MAC has unique selling point that customers can combine the colors they want in one eye shadow box. so it's very convenient, right? I can mix whatever I want. I choose two eye shadows in one palette, your can also choose four or nine in one box. More eye shadow more expensive. This will ensure that what you buy will not be wasted. MAC - MAC Eyeshadow

Dewy and flash- friendly Natural Makeup
I’ve always loved fuss free and natural looks so im sharing my go-to no makeup look that you can do when you’re on the go but still want to look purrty🍭 it Cosmetics - it Cosmetics CC+ Cream SPF 50+ one of my fave natural bases as it has no flashbacks, and decent dewy coverage, long-lasting on my oily skin and has spf50! Loving the pump bottle too which is mess- free and travel- friendly. benefit - Benefit Tinted Cheek & Lip Stain i love this color on my medium skin tone and its very long lasting too very apt for mask- wearing times as they won’t rub off easily and this stays rain or shine. A tiny dot goes a loong way too and i use this for my lips and cheeks. ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade i lightly dip my brush for that natural look on the brows and top it with.. PATRICK TA - Major Brow Shaping Wax i could see why this is a hyped product and it stays a long time too. Only con is you need to find the technique that works for you especially on how wet the brush should be to scrape the wax off and deposit the right amount on the brows. innisfree - No Sebum Mineral Powder i use this to set my makeup and seal my undereye concealer. It also doubles as a dry shampoo! L'ORÉAL - Telescopic Waterproof Mascara i see why this mascara is very praised and it’s because it stays on when you want it on and gives that covetable lashes for dayzzz NYX - NYX Retractable Eyeliner i use the beigey color to open up the eyes by putting it on the water line. It glides on well and stays put i have no complaints.. MAC - MAC Eyeshadow in cork. I use this for the nose line and as bronzer on the go. I love that it’s matte and taupey and also long- lasting with the packaging perfect for travel. NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer i use this as my undereye and blemish concealer. For the undereyes, i smudge a little peach cream blush, usually NARS - The Multiple in Siam. Just a litttttllle bit to serve as corrector before the concealer. This also avoids the reverse raccoon 👀 MAC - MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Finishing Mist this serves both as my priming and finishing spray and i love that it serves its purpose but yet to find a cheaper alternative because im aware that there may be a nice dupe out there.. 🤔 Thats it! Excited to know your no makeup go-tos too!🍬

BoxyCharm: December Base Box ✨💖
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 I finally received my December base box from Boxycharm today. Yes, it’s the 29th. I am cutting them some slack though because I know that it was the holidays and they were probably pretty backed up. For those who don’t know, Boxycharm is a beauty subscription service and you get 5 full sized products for $25/month. You have the option to upgrade to premium which you receive 6-7 items. The premium box is $35/month. I canceled my base box months ago and only subscribed to premium. However, my premium boxes lately have been pretty disappointing. I found the items in the base box more appealing the last few months so I decided to cancel and re-subscribe to base. They were having a deal that if you resubscribe, you get a complimentary Breakfast in Bed palette by Beauty Bakerie or the Ciate London Editor palette. I went with Beauty Bakerie because I love the brand. I was pretty impressed with my box this month. This is the first time that I’m excited about ALL the products I received. I’m happy that I got all makeup items because I’m very picky with skin care. In this box, I received 6 full sized items including the complimentary Beauty Bakerie palette. • Breakfast in Bed Palette by Beauty Bakery - $38.00 • Huda Beauty Amethyst Obsessions Palette - $27.00 •Glamnetic Baby Girl Lashes and Black Magnetic Liner - $63.00 • Tarte Maneater Mascara - $23.00 • MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in shade Chili - $19.00 • Get lit Metallic Liquid Eyeshadow by Eloise Beauty in the shade Pure Gold - $26.00 •TOTAL VALUE: $196.00 I am most excited about the magnetic lashes because I have never tried them before and I love falsies! I am also excited about the Huda palette. Are you subscribed to any monthly beauty subscription boxes? If so which service is your favorite? Xoxo, Francesca 💋

COME HERE TO PICK ONE
Combination dry skin with acne. KOREAN AND JAPANESE BRANDS VS EUROPEAN AND US PRODUCTS These four face primers have a big gap on price. I have used them for a long period. Each of them has different functions and performance. I cannot wait to share with you! 1. CPB SPF 20++ clé de peau BEAUTÉ - Correcting Cream Veil SPF 21 The newest try one among these four, but I have been applying it for one month. Special for dry and desert skin. Texture: creamy white with hydrated feeling. If you are oil skin, try to avoid it. You will feel too oily to spread the primer evenly. Price: $80 Advantage: moisturizing and pigmentation. It can help me to brighten my skin tone. Disadvantage: low SPF and poor fluidity. 2. LANEIGE SPF22++ LANEIGE - Skin Veil Base SPF25 PA++ Two type can be chosen. One is green for improving the problems of skin sensitivity and redness. I prefer purple one. This series is applicable for dull and shallow skin. However! This one is the worst among these four! DO NOT BUY IT! Texture: not very thick but not moisturizing. After applying, my skin tone is looked like not natural. You have to do a great job on previous moisturizing work. I don’t like it. Price: $20 Advantage: cheap Disadvantage: cannot keep the moisture of skin and I got new acne on my chin due to this primer. 3. CHANTECAILLE SPF 45 PA+++ CHANTECAILLE - Ultra Sun Protection Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45 Primer Shake the tube before using it to mix all ingredients together. Texture: it makes us feel oil when squeeze them out. However, this product is oil-free formula. No color and no fragrance. It can form 1-2mm protective film on my skin from my observation. Price:$95 Advantage: dry skin will love it! Disadvantage: high price and low cost performance. I can run out of one by six months. 4. MAC MAC - Strobe Cream I have introduced this product for many times. I love it because it’s multi-functional primer which gives me the brightening and smoothest appearance. The using method is different from previous three. I always mix them with my foundation. The effect is much more amazing and natural than using alone. Price:$35 Advantage: very durable. Mix with foundation can create more surprise. Disadvantage: sheer primer texture. Many people don’t like it. Conclude, the face primer ranking is CPB,CHANTECAILLE, MAC, LANEIGE.
Not the NYX formula for me
I’ve had the opportunity to try out many different NYX products over the years so trying out their newest lipstick formula was a treat. To start off with, the color is described as a Deep Rose Pink. In the tube, the color looks like a darker rose color on the lips the color is much brighter and more pink then rose. Loved the tube color so I was a bit disappointed it didn’t come off like it on my lips. The formula itself is a satin lipstick, pretty comfortable on the lips. Very pigmented, one swipe was a bit patchy though so I would suggest a few swipes or a good lipliner underneath. It stayed quite wet the entire time I wore this and smudged around my mouth way too much then I would like. Also, definitely not a long wearing lipstick, since it didn’t dry down at all it was basically off after having half a glass of water. Love NYX but this formula just isn’t for me. NYX - Shout Loud Satin Lipstick

MAC LIPSTICK 💄
Mac is now my go to lipstick. I was looking for a burgundy red lipstick and stumbled upon Mac chili lipstick. It's a good color and the finish is very nice. Not too dry and definitely not sticky at all. This lipstick also lasted on my lips for hours without any bleeding or uncomfortable dryness. MAC - Lustre Lipstick
NABLA COSMETICS SHINE THEORY LIP GLOSSES (€11,90 or $13.50usd) . The NABLA Denude collection includes 2 palettes, an eye brush set, 2 lip glosses and a metallic mesh makeup bag. The entire collection is gorgeous. Nabla's presentation and attention to detail is impeccable and their products are always excellent quality. I love the suspended glitter detail of the lipgloss packaging! The Theory Lip Glosses have a shiny, ultra mirrored formula full of colored micro sparkles. The finish is wet, multidimensional, super luminous and not sticky. Perfect also as a top coat. If there's a scent, I can't detect it with my allergies. - AFTERSEX- delicately colored coral pink base and mini golden sparkles. 3D Reflex - CHAMPAGNE SUPERNOVA- transparent base and bronze, gold, platinum and peach sparkles. 3D ReflexShine

🍒 Red Lips: Rimmel or Sugarpill?
Almost every brand has a red lipstick. So I decided to compare one from the drugstore and mid-range. Drugstore 🌹 Rimmel Lasting Finish in Kiss of Life 111 ($4.99) This lipstick is creamy and shiny. It’s not a liquid, so it does transfer to what it touches. But it still kept my lips moisturized and lasted through the day. I applied it directly from the bullet, and one layer gave me a soft coat of color. I applied two more layers of it to make it more opaque. At three layers, I was satisfied with how the color popped. Overall, it’s a good product. It’s a little brighter than Nurse, but I found it pretty for a nice daytime red. Higher-End 🥀 Sugarpill Liquid Lip Color in Nurse ($18.00) As a liquid lipstick, this babe refuses to transfer. Kissing your hand after applying it can leave a little red tint. But you won’t be leaving kisses on napkins with it. The color was powerful on first application, and dried down quickly. It smells like orange cream- So if you don’t like fragrance in makeup, you might prefer another product. I have had this product for at least a year, and it has dried up a little bit. But it hasn’t lost its staying power or beauty. It also has a matte finish, which gives it a sultry look. ❤️ Final Thoughts ❤️ Personally, I prefer the Sugarpill liquid lip. I wear red lipstick a lot, so the staying power and bold color make it a winner to me. But I know there’s a $13.00 difference between each product. So if you’re only wearing red lipstick for a special occasion, you might prefer the Rimmel lipstick. What is your favorite red lip and why?
RIMMEL-Lasting Finish Lipstick
My Favorite Lip Glosses
Talking about lip gloss, sometimes I love using clear ones as a topper to make my lips look juicy and plump; if my lips are too dry, I also love using lip glosses with pigmentation alone to get a healthy look. And here are three of my favorite lip glosses. I want to start from a clear one, the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer from Fenty Beauty, named Fenty Glow. This is the first lip gloss Fenty Beauty launched and is a shimmering rose nude shade, which is suitable for all skin tones. What I love about this is that it has gold and silver shimmers inside, really beautiful under sunshine. It looks sticky but after applying, I feel it more like oil. It also comes with peach-vanilla scent and I really love sweet scent. FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer The second one can be used not only as a topper, but as a tinted gloss. It is called Bronze Temptation from Pat Mcgrath Labs, which is famous for its eyeshadow palettes and matte lipsticks. But after trying this gloss, I think it’s an underrated product. This is a golden peachy bronze shade, giving lips a three-dimensional luster. Comparing the $38 lipstick, this gloss only costs $28 and has more products, you can feel the packaging is quite heavy. The only thing I don’t like is that t’s a little sticky, so don’t wear it in a windy day or your hair will stick on lips. PAT McGRATH LABS - LUST Lip Gloss The last one is called Aragon from Nars. This one is the perfect everyday lip gloss for me, non-sticky, great pigmentation, instant smoothing and wonderful color. I have light skin with yellow undertone, so this red chestnut color will brighten my skin. Even though the shade is a little bit darker than the other two, but the luminous shine will make me look healthy even without makeup. NARS - NARS Lip Gloss Summer is coming, it’s time to try some new lip glosses and enjoy the sunshine.
FENTY BEAUTY-Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb
✨What are the claims? It is a high shine, conditioning lip gloss. In the original shade, Fenty Glow. It is universal for all skin tones, to enhance the natural color of your lips. ✨Texture/Consistency? It is a very smooth, NON sticky gloss ✨My thoughts? I really love this! I purchased it when it first came out & this is my 3 one since then! It is the perfect no lip color, color on me! It isn’t too dark or light, but close to my natural lip color. I love the way this feels on my lips, super smooth & it isn’t sticky or gritty at all. I can’t feel the shimmer on my lips which is a deal breaker for me! I love the packaging, it’s super unique & cute & I like how I can see the product inside. It smells kind of like vanilla, & the applicator brush I super soft & fluffy! I recommend to everyone! ✨Price? It’s $19 at Sephora & it’s totally worth it!! FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer
