fashion week inspired makeup! 🖤
I had SO much fun recreating a look from this year’s fashion week. I decided to merge my 3 favorite looks into one! I took the bold, glossy lip from oscar de la renta, the exaggerated singular lash from rodarte, and the “e-girl” heart beauty mark from christian siriano—I think it turned out so cool! I loved this challenge because I honestly had never looked through the fashion week makeup looks before, it is SO fun. the creativity and unique looks are so innovative and it was really fun to see I had a lot of the products needed to reproduce these looks in my own collection! I bet if y’all looked through some looks you’d realize you can replicate them too! ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick one of the best colors imo, “spicy” is such a gorgeous neon red. it also makes my teeth look SO white, lol. Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss I loved using this to get that shiny top coat. this is a supremely comfortable gloss and I really appreciated that the doe foot didn’t get stained?? idk but I’m glad NYX - Matte Liquid Liner I made my heart with my eyeliner, it was easy because the brush is so so so thin. I feel like NYX makes some of the best eyeliners for graphic art! ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Blush Kit I love this kit because it has 4 shades of blush. each color is vastly different, but you can also blend them all together for a beautiful color. wet n wild - Ultimate Brow Retractable I have the thinner version, hands down my favorite eyebrow pencil. super pigmented, super soft, super sturdy! what more could you need. pleeeeease recreate your favorite look from this year’s fashion week! I want to see some more fun looks! #cheriepartner #cheriecreator
I managed to score this for 8 CAD at winners, and as fall has rolled around I figured this was the perfect colour! Seeing as I didn’t spend an arm and a leg on this I shouldn’t be as upset as I am that it didn’t work! However, I am.. and here’s why! First off, what I fell in love with 🍁 The colour!!! It goes on darker than it looks, but is sooooo gorgeous, I was getting compliments all day! 🍁 The applicator is really nice! 🍁 I’m awful at applying lipstick (because I was cursed with NO upper lip) but honestly found it easy to apply! It stayed put and really only needed one coat! Sadly, what REALLY didn’t work for me 😒 This wears off so fast! And not in like a normal slowly disappears kind of way, but seems to disintegrate almost? It was the weirdest experience! 😒 This has the worst feeling of any liquid lipstick, it’s grainy, almost feel like you have crusty flour all over your lips! So I guess even though I only have two negative points, each of them are so bad that this is sadly not a redeemable product for me! ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick
Two of my favorite Too Faced products.
These lipsticks rekindled my love for bold lips. I’m not a big fan of matte liquid lipsticks anymore, but these get a pass. The colors are gorgeous and bright (Swipe for swatches!) and look great with my complexion. The packaging is just as cute and the lipstick itself smells like gingerbread! These are more comfortable to wear than a lot of liquid lipsticks I’ve tried and I’ve never had them flake or ball up like some are prone to doing. They provide an opaque layer of color with one swipe. While they do dry down, I have one tiny gripe— They’re not the most transfer proof. If you press a napkin to your lips, you’ll definitely take a bit of the color with you, and you’ll probably need to touch up after eating or drinking. As much as I love these lipsticks, I’ll dock them one star each because it’s not entirely transfer proof and I don’t think ANY lipstick is worth $21. That being said, they’re a 4 out of 5 for me, but I’m still very happy to have them in my collection.

Gingerbread lip lovin’
I snagged these gorgeous Too Faced melted matte lipsticks in “gingerbread man” and “gingerbread girl” during the holiday season in 2017 and 2018. Both formulas are still going strong. “Man” is more heavy on the orange with some red, while “girl” is more heavy on the red with some orange. These colors are unique to my collection and I adore them! They last very well on the lips and aren’t overly drying. Grab them while you can!
Battle of the rose gold lippy
A bonus about finding a great lipstick colour that suits your skin tone is also finding one in a cute rose gold ribbed metal packaging that you can show off when applying to your lips. Chances are, you know exactly what Charlotte Tilbury’s makeup line looks like. These iconic lipsticks are an Instagram staple, with their ridged, rose gold tubes and engraved caps. These lipsticks are a cult trend and because of their luxury look and established high end brand they come with the price tag too. That is until, Makeup Revolution brought out an almost identical looking range at almost ¼ of the price tag - so how do they differ? Charlotte Tilbury - Pillow Talk Diamonds Lip Topper This is the shade Pillow Talk - did you know that there is 1 Pillow Talk Matte Revolution lipstick sold EVERY 2 MINUTES?! Now that’s impressive. This award-winning, nude-pink matte lipstick has everyone talking. I regularly get lots of compliments when I wear this shade too. It’s incredibly flattering and would suit most skin shades. I have a yellow undertone skin colour and am fair to medium. This lipstick is enriched with hydrating orchid extract and stays put all day. It really is my favourite lipstick that I own but for the price I tend to only wear on special occasions. REVOLUTION - Renaissance Lipstick This shade is Prime and it's almost identical to Pillow Talk. It has a creamy enough formula and glides across the lips nice enough. It definitely does not come close to the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick range in quality and the shade doesn't last as long on the lips either. It does however look the part and is a nice colour once first applied. For the price I probably would repurchase again as more of a daily lipstick.
The Radical Power of a Red Lip (& my TOP FAVS!)
Red lipstick has always been a statement within the world of makeup. The first colour of lip paint, red lips were originally worn by Queens starting in Ancient Mesopotamia, and inspired everyone from Cleopatra, the suffragette movement, to RBG and modern-day AoC. In today’s world, a red lip is a power statement. Bringing confidence to the wearer that is as much about how it looks as how it makes you feel wearing it. In a world where women are constantly criticized for their looks, wearing a statement lip for yourself because of how it makes you feel is a power move. As a woman, it can be hard to be taken seriously, and while wearing a bright lip can seem risky in male dominated fields like academia, I enjoy the inner confidence it gives me. Femininity is powerful, and with the inherent bias and politicalization of how women present day-to-day (yay sexism and gender roles!), wearing something you want because you like how it looks rather than worrying about other’s opinions, is a radical move. Though makeup is seen by many as vain and frivolous, it is a defiant act of self care to love yourself this way. My favorite red lip is a true blue-red— a classic that looks great on both cool and warm skin tones, from light to deep complexion. A bonus, it makes your teeth look whiter and brighter and enhances your smile. It’s my favorite because to me it feels classy and classic, while constantly looking chic no matter the situation. Here are some of my favorites! PATRICK TA - Major Beauty Headlines Matte Suede Lipstick (i’m wearing it in this image) It glides on like a dream, and is the most pigmented lipstick I own. It’s a powdery matte that transfers on lips with ease, yet leaves them feeling hydrated. I honestly forgot I was wearing it until I looked in the mirror! MAC - Instant Artistry Lip Prep Red Kit in russian red is a great intro red lip. It is very forgiving during lining and application, and is durable while eating and drinking! After a meal, i don’t always find reapplication necessary. FENTY BEAUTY - Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color is beautiful on medium and deeper skin tones, it’s luxurious and pigmented going on with little skipping and patching. Bonus? Lining before using this liquid lippie isn’t needed! stila - Stay All Day Sheer Liquid Lipstick and of course, I had to include AoC’s go to red lip— her endorsement is enough to keep me coming back for this!
🚀BOOST Your mood with these lipsticks
There is just something magical that happens when you wear your favorite lipstick or a bright color to make your skin POP! For me, I love the bright colors like pink, orange and a dark red! As someone who is medium toned, these colors work great with my complexion and don’t wash me out. These colors also make me feel confident, flirty and fun year round. Orange lipstick is great during the summer months and really enhance the summer glow. I tend to tone down my makeup with soft neutral colors so my orange lips can really pop. Kokie - Kokie Matte Lipstick Red or Pink lipstick: I’ve once been told that if you want people to pay more attention to you, put on a red or pink lipstick and you will capture their attention. That being said, find a shade that goes with your makeup and skin tone. I love a good vampy dark red and a beautiful bright cherry red. Lime Crime - Velvetines Liquid Lipstick FENTY BEAUTY - Stunna Lip Paint Longwear Fluid Lip Color FENTY BEAUTY - Poutsicle Juicy Satin Lipstick To me, the finish doesn’t matter, I like them all. If you’re going to an event where you cannot apply lipstick often, opt in for a liquid lipstick that ofdees long wear protection. I like to wear matte lipsticks during the daytime and more glossy lipsticks during the evening. The brand doesn’t matter as long as it doesn’t leave my lips dry. Kokie is an awesome drugstore brand that makes great lipsticks for a super affordable price. If you want something higher end, Fenty and Lime Crime can be found at Ulta or Sephora. I’m happy to say that Kokie, Fenty and Lime Crime are winners in my book! 😍 SWATCHES Top 2 Bottom: Fenty Stunna Lip Pain in Unlocked Kokie Cosmetics Matte in Firecracker Fenty Poutsicle in Alpha Doll Lime Crime Velvetines in Red Rose #cheriepartner #moodboostinglipstick
Best Drugstore Dupes for Lip Stains
Some of us are either staying indoors most of the time now or if we’re outdoors, we are wearing face masks outdoors. It is inevitable for we take shortcuts with our make-up now. Even though I’m indoors more than ever, I still like to apply a layer of lip stain at home to allow myself to look more put together before I start the day. I favor lip stains more than lipsticks now as lip stains are generally liquid or water-based gels and feels lighter on the lips. Compared to a lipstick, the lightweight liquid color serves as softer veils of color on your lips, making it more casual for daily home use. I like how they are designed to give lips a perfectly imperfect hint of color. I am already a habitual lip balm user so although a lip stain can be drying, I use one in conjunction with a moisturizing lip balm. The humble drugstore also provides great affordable options for good lip stains that do the job well. One of my favorites is L.A. Girl Lip Plumper Tinted. I am using shade Tickled, a clear jelly that adds a hydrating sheen to my lips. It also adds a natural pucker worthy look thanks to its tingling formula which may be too apparent for some people. However, I like how I can apply it on its own or layer over another lip color for a long-lasting plumping effect. Another lip stain that has been in my make-up bag is L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick. Touting the matte effect on lips instead gloss, the product is L'Oreal's first “up to 16 hour” matte liquid lipstick. It gives an overall relatively high pigment shade than lip glosses without wearing off as quickly. It feels comfortable and creamy on the lips without over-drying. A thin layer is all you need for a natural color for hours. I love the shape of the applicator that makes it easy to shape and add dimension to lips. For those sensitive to scents, this lip stain has no funky smell.
My favorite nude lipstick
Today I am sharing my favorite nude lipstick and the long journey to find it. When I first started wearing lipstick, I didn’t understand why anyone would wear nude shades when you could wear every other color of the rainbow. It wasn’t until my twenties that nude shades became popular and I set out to find the perfect one. I have fair skin and naturally pink lips, so nude shades that are more brown or tan don’t look right on me. I did find an amazing shade almost immediately. It was from the now discontinued Mary Kate and Ashley Makeup line. It was a glossy nude that was just the right mix of pink and tan tones. I went through probably 5 tubes of that one. When they discontinued the line, I bought every tube that was left. It lasted a while, but soon I was on the hunt again. The next one I tried and liked was Maybelline, in the shade Born with It. That one worked for a while. I used up an entire tube and then couldn’t find it anywhere. After a year or so, it was back, but it wasn’t quite the same. I don’t know if they tweaked the formula slightly or if the color of my lips changed slightly, but my just right product was suddenly a little too pink. It was the tiniest difference, but it was a noticeable difference. From there, I set about looking for another perfect shade. I tried just about every drugstore brand and came up empty. I was the Goldilocks of lipstick. This one is too pink, this one is too tan. I didn’t try a lot of prestige brands until recently. I had my makeup professionally done and saw the difference good products make and set about replacing everything in my makeup bag. I purchased MAC Matte Lipstick in Kinda Sexy online. In the photo, the shade looked darker, so I wasn’t expecting this shade at all. But the minute I tried it on, I knew I found my perfect shade once again. It is a matte formula, but not too drying. I like that I can choose between a matte finish or layer on a clear gloss for a glossy finish. I can see myself repurchasing when this tube is gone.
MAC-MAC Matte Lipstick
ABH liquid lipstick 💄
✨I recently got this for Christmas in a mini set & it’s become my absolute fav! I don’t always go for a liquid lipstick formula but whenever I do, I love this one! ✨It’s by Anastasia Beverly Hill’s & it’s in the shade Charm! It’s a medium tone nude for my very light skin tone, so sometimes I use a lighter shade in the center to balance it out. Or sometimes I want a full on soft beige lip color. ✨What does this product claim to do? It says it’s a full pigment, long lasting, ultra wearable matte liquid lipstick. - I believe it’s true to its claims! It stays on for hours, it’s super Matte & dries super quickly. The formula is kind of liquid so if you’re a beginner at liquid lips I would probably try using with a lip liner! ❤️ ✨They have over 30 shades & they’re $20! Super affordable. Love this lipstick!

Many people think MAC lipsticks can be the dupes to replace Tom Ford lipsticks. In this review, I will compare Tom Ford in shade 80 impassioned with MAC Chili and give you my thoughts on them. Tom Ford Lip Color #80 impassioned | 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Price: $72 Shade | 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 This is a very flattering color. I enjoy this formula because it is easy to apply and feels very luxurious on your lips. I always get asked about my lip color when I wear this lipstick. Hydrating | 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 The lipstick was so creamy and it softened my lips so much. Even the matte shades aren't drying on my lips. I have chapped lips and need to apply lipstick straight on top of lip balm. But with Tom Ford, it works by itself. It's like melting on your lips! Long-lasting | 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 It is long-wearing and I only reapply it after eating. MAC Chili | 🌟🌟 Price: $30 Shade | 🌟🌟🌟🌟 MAC Chili is a gorgeous color, with a mix of brown, orange and red. But my complexion is light-medium with yellow undertones, MAC Chili is too red on me. I think Tom Ford one suits me better. Hydrating |🌟 It is so dried out that I can't even use it. I try to apply Burt's Bees lip balm as a basis, in this case it can glide smoothly. But the shade is easy to be removed. Maybe I chose a matte color which is very dry. But I definitely won’t repurchase it. Long-lasting | 🌟 I applied a layer of balm on my lips, and the shade on top wears off easily. Despite the higher price of Tom Ford lipstick, I still loving it a lot! It deserves the extra cost. I am sure I will repurchase other shades from Tom Ford. Definitely, I don’t think the MAC can replace it. Tom Ford lipstick is unbeatable. Creator: @Jasmine1014
Omg!!!! When fenty beauty said they were releasing sheer lipsticks with immense shine I almost died! But no actually... I told myself okay you can get 1 shade but here we are 4 shades later! This collection has so many amazing nudes I couldn’t just pick 1. Also I don’t know about you but in the summer time I couldn’t be bothered with a matte lip that feels super drying. I like to wear something more comfortable that adds a shine and moisturizes my lips. This product is perfect and does just that! It’s shiny feels so comfortable on the lips and provides the most amazing shine making your lips looks so plump and healthy! Pictured are the shades gogi gang, make out break, cookies and cocoa, and quartz candy. I already have my eye on more shades. At this point I might just get them all lol! Fenty take my money it’s yours! FENTY BEAUTY - Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipstick
