Rare Beauty Lip & Cheek mini Duo
Rare Beauty - Best of Rare Beauty Lip & Cheek 2 Piece Mini Duo
Nov. 2, 2020
My Thoughts so Far on Rare Beauty
I purchased this Rare Beauty - Best of Rare Beauty Lip & Cheek 2 Piece Mini Duo back in November from Sephora for $15. It contains 2 mini products: dewy lip balm in “thankful” and matte liquid blush in “bliss”. Lip balm: “Thankful” is a nude-mauve shade. It has sheer pigmentation on 1st swipe but can easily be built up with 2 or 3 layers. This isn’t a “throw it on without a mirror” tinted balm because of that, so if that’s what you’re looking for I don’t recommend. I personally don’t mind that. The formula is creamy, comfortable, and makes my lips look juicy. The color goes with most looks, too. I can see myself picking up a full size! Liquid blush: “Bliss” is a pinky nude that would work for fair-light skin tones. There are other shades in the full size line that would work well for deeper skin, and Rare also offers a 4-piece set with some other shades. A little goes a long way with this. I like to apply to my hand, spread it out,and then apply with a brush. I’ve found if I try to apply directly to my cheek, it can pick up product underneath or can dry too quickly. It dries down completely. It wears very well throughout the day. I’d love to check out other shades and the dewy formula! Price & availability: $15USD Sold online at Sephora and the brand’s website. As of today both list out of stock, but hopefully it comes back.
Sephora VIP Sale 2020 - my pickups
with the Sephora sale and holiday gifts/sets coming out, I thought it would be the best time to pickup some new items! I only picked up three items which are all holiday sets. Since I'm a rouge member I received 20%, so make sure to take advantage of the sale if you're a member and there's stuff on your wishlist. Here's what I purchased: Charlotte Tilbury - Filmstar Bronze & Glow Contour Duo This is the first CT product I've ever purchased, and I've had my eye on the full size for a while now. However, I could never spend $70 on a bronzer and highlighter. This one is $29 so it's honestly a great way to try the product for less. As you can see, the contour shade is not noticeable on my skin.. It's a shame because I'm a light-medium skin tone. the highlighter is beautiful though. I'm going to test this product 2 times, but I might return it because of the shade. Rare Beauty - Best of Rare Beauty Lip & Cheek 2 Piece Mini Duo As soon as I saw these sets, I knew I needed one. I completely recommend this product. This set comes with a mini lipbalm in Thankful and a liquid blush in Bliss. I'm loving the lip balm so far. I do wish there was a set with a highlighter. great shades. FENTY BEAUTY - Fenty Glow Trio Face Lip & Body Set I am a fenty beauty lover since day 1. But believe it or not, I never tried their glosses! This set comes with a full-size blush, full-size lip gloss and a travel size highlighter. All of the products are in the shade Fenty Glow and OMG. These shades are so beautiful on the skin. It gives a natural nude color to the skin and with a glow. I can tell I will be using it year-round.

Favorite Blushes of 2020
One of my favorite makeup products is blush. I love how much life blush adds back into my complexion after putting on foundation and concealer. I used to reach for mainly peach toned shades, but lately I have been loving pink blush. Here are my favorite blushes of 2020. DIOR - BACKSTAGE Rosy Glow Blush The Dior Rosy Glow Blushes are one of the most beautiful formulas. It’s infused with Color Reviver Technology which reacts to the skins moisture level upon application for a customized rosy effect. It adds the perfect amount of radiance to my cheeks and I love both the pink and coral shades. FENTY BEAUTY - Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush I was never a fan of cream blush until I tried the Fenty Cheeks Out Cream Blushes! The can look a little intimidating because quite a few of the colors are super bright, but they blend out really beautifully and look really pretty on the skin. I have quite a few shades, but my favorites are Petal Poppin and Strawberry Drip. MAC - Glow Play Blush I just recently tried the MAC Glow Play blush formula and I am so glad that I did. The formula is a really unique cream to powder hybrid formula and it looks so beautiful on the skin. I have a few shades, but my favorite is Grand. It’s such a pretty shade of pink. #Colourpop - Wayfarer Pressed Powder Blush[products]#[FiveStars] I absolutely love Colourpop Cosmetics! They have some of the most affordable makeup without compromising quality. I have so many of their products, but my favorites are their shadows and blushes. I’ve been wearing Wayfarer nonstop! I highly recommend checking it out! WANDER BEAUTY - On-The-Glow Blush and Illuminator I am obsessed with Wander Beauty and this blush and highlighter blush and illuminator stick is absolutely gorgeous! I use the cream blush for both blush and lip balm and the formula is super creamy and really long lasting. It blends out really nicely with either your fingers or a brush and it has the perfect amount of pigmentation. Rare Beauty - Soft Pinch Liquid Blush My newest faves are the Rare Beauty liquid blushes! She has the prettiest shade selection and you can get either a matte or dewy finish, but I absolutely love the matte. Bliss is my favorite shade and I love that you only need the smallest amount of product. It blends out so beautifully and stays put all day long! #Jouer Cosmetics - Blush Bouquet[products]#[FiveStars] I love Jouer’s blush duos and palettes, but Cheeky Summer is the duo that I reach for the most often. Both blush shades are so beautiful and they blend out really nicely on the cheeks. They have so many beautiful shades to chose from also. #BeautyWithoutBarriers #CheriePartner
Who doesn’t love a brand new lipstick? 🥰 ￼Buxom cosmetics 90s Nudes Collection lipsticks are incredible! I have shades Supermodel and Dreamboat. They are my perfect nude/brown shade for me. They have a slight tingle sensation since it has a plumping effect. ￼Rarebeauty Dewy Lip Balm feels so hydrating and deliver a natural color for your lips.

Trying out Rare Beauty’s Vulnerable Line 👄
so I’m to the point where every time Rare Beauty releasing a new product, I have to get my hands on it... 👀 so I got theRare Beauty - Stay Vulnerable Melting Cream Blush , Rare Beauty - Stay Vulnerable Liquid Eyeshadow , Rare Beauty - Stay Vulnerable Glossy Lip Balm in Nearly Neutral and the Rare Beauty - Stay Vulnerable All Over Eyeshadow Brush ! the blush really does *melt* into your skin and it’s lovely! Im not the best with blush it’s almost foolproof to mess this up ~ you can sheer it out and it looks like a natural looking flush! but it is a cream blush so I understand if that’s not your cup of tea! the eyeshadow blends so well and I love these colors to choose from! I went with NN to go with the rest of my order ~ probably an unpopular opinion but I like this product more than Glossier’s Skywash 🤫 and the lip balm? gloss? balm gloss? ugh I’m obsessed...I even got my grandma obsessed! There’s definitely a color in it but it’s the same color as my lips & it doesn’t get sticky or uncomfortable ~ it feels so hydrating it’s just 🤩 lastly, the eyeshadow brush? so so lovely! It’s a pretty pink color, different than the concealer/foundation brush. It’s a lot smaller than the other two, I just love it. It really mimics your finger! 9/10 love rare beauty products & their Instagram, it talks about inclusivity and mental health ~ I love when a new post pops up on my home screen ~however~ it’s get a 9/10 due strictly because of the price 😬 *do you agree with me? have you tried these items yet?? let me know 👇🏼*
One product in two ways! Cheek & Lip series
I’m really crazy about exploring my make-up products, this is definitely the best way for a girl who loves makeup to experiment with makeup. I personally like to play with my collection of cosmetics to give them more creative using ways. For example, I often use my lipstick as blush and eye shadow, use an eyebrow pencil to draw nose shadow and eyeliner, use eye shadow to draw my eyebrows and trim my face, etc. These are all part of my makeup routine, developing more potential in cosmetics and making my makeup process more interesting. Today, I would like to recommend INGLOT - Lip Duo Lip Gloss & Lip Paintthe Lip Duo, which has a beautiful outer package. It is a transparent ice cube, which looks very attractive. Through the transparent packaging, you can see the color and texture of the paste directly, which is very intuitive and looks good on the dresser. One is a color NO.19 CORAL, which is a very bright red color, the saturation of which is not high. It is a very tender bright red when applied to the mouth, which looks very dynamic and young like a girl who has just eaten strawberry. Dots can also be applied to your cheeks to create a rosy glow, much like a shy girl in a relationship. If you have fair skin and are in pursuit of this vibrant look, this is your go-to color. The other color is NO.18 NUDE, which is really a wonderful, atmospheric color! The nude pink paste has a beautiful delicate sparkle. I prefer to use it on my face rather than on my mouth. It's light in texture and easy to spread. It's a very breathy nude blush, which is very special. Recommended!

Great formula but disappointing shade range...
Coverfx recently released their new Luminous Tinted Moisturizer in 4 shades.... The formula is lovely. It’s very creamy, sheer, and buildable. Via their website, it’s an “innovative prebiotic and probiotic formula that blurs pores and fine lines, improves radiance and helps replenish and restore skin’s natural barrier. It’s enriched with prebiotics and probiotics to help strengthen and balance your skin’s living protective layer, Anti-Stress Adaptors to defend against environmental aggressors, and Bamboo, Lotus Flower & Water Lily to hydrate and soothe. Vegan & cruelty-free.” Now let’s talk about the shade range...there are 4: fair/light, medium, tan, and deep. Each attempt to cover a range of 20-30 foundation shades. I was sent fair/light and medium, both of which are not a perfect match for me. Fair/light is very yellow while medium is just too dark for my skin tone. The range definitely needs to be expanded. Although it’s a tinted moisturizer and is sheer, there needs to be at least double what they released. There aren’t any neutral tones and tan and deep are extremely orange and red. This poses a huge issue for many people trying to find a shade. I’m eager to see an expanded shade range in the near future ________ *PR gifted COVER FX - Luminous Tinted Moisturizer

Lip and cheek duos ✨
I bought these a few days ago. I saw the morphe x Maddie Ziegler collection on Ulta’s site and they looked super cute I had to have them. I ordered “pink about it” and “peach that pops”. Both include a lip gloss and a lip & cheek mousse. The lip gloss has no color when applied to the lips. It has no scent which is great for people that are sensitive to smells. Its not sticky at all! The mousse feels nice on my cheeks. The set “peach that pops” has a mousse in the shade “peach out”. It looks slightly red in the glass jar but when applied and blended out with fingers it looks like a strawberry light red color. This shade has more color compared to the pink one. The “pink about it” set has a mousse in the shade “pinky swear”. I really like this one a lot. It’s not super pigmented and blends into my cheek nicely and doesn’t leave any streaks. It’s a light cool pink. I can’t wait to keep using this and see how I feel about it in a few weeks. MORPHE - MORPHE X Maddie Ziegler Oh So Berry Lip & Cheek Duo

Tower 28 blush
I love this beach please tinted lip and cheek balm. I have this in the shade “magic hour”, it’s a beautiful rosy nude color. It’s super easy to apply on my cheeks and the color stays on my face all day, even in the heat! I’m also really glad that the color is pigmented enough for darker skin. My best friend has this in the shade “happy hour” a coral pink color and it looks absolutely beautiful on his medium deep skin tone☺️I’m definitely considering buying another one. I like to use this with my fingers and tap it on the high points of my cheeks and blend it up towards my hairline. It doesn’t feel super sticky and it has caused me no irritation at all. I like to apply a little bit on my lips and gloss on top for an extra dewy look. It’s pretty pricey $20 for 4.5g/0.158 oz. You only need a little bit so it does last a while.

This lip oil is hot AF 😻🔥
I absolutely love this lip oil! I am pretty picky when it comes to lip products, I don’t often wear anything besides lip balm because I hate the feeling of anything on my lips. This lip oil is so glossy and is not sticky at all, and smells amazing/DELICIOUS! They have a cherry and a berry flavor, and I chose the berry one. It leaves a slight purple/pink tint on my lips which works really well with my natural lip color. It is so glossy and lasts for hours! The packaging is also super cute and trendy! I definitely recommend this adorable lip oil.
