Are Cream Products Really All That?! 🤷🏻♀️
Long story short: 120% yes. If you love the natural glow and no-makeup makeup look I would recommend this product to you in a heart beat. This cream blush is light coverage, but incredibly buildable if you really love a rosy look. The shade I wanted was sold out when I went into Sephora, but because this blush is so light it doesn’t really matter what colour you get as it can be as strong or weak as you want! I would recommend applying this product with a beauty sponge to help it apply evenly and get pressed into your skin. I use the wide end of a tear drop shaped sponge to get even coverage as I move the blush across my cheeks, nose, and high-points of my face. My only piece of advice is that when using cream products (not just this one in particular) is to be very careful about the order in which you apply your products. I recommend applying any cream blush right after you apply a cream contour. If you apply this after a powder of any sort it defeats the purpose of the dewy look cream products gives you, plus it will cake up and look blotchy. Will I be repurchasing - I think so.. that bring said there are so many cream blushes on the market right now, there’s so I much I want to try before committing to a go-to.

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

Feeling Like A Pink Jumpsuit... Feeling Glossier
Every time I would turn on the TV or Hulu commercials, I felt like I saw the same Glossier commercial. The one when the guy said “feeling like a pink jumpsuit” and somehow it stuck with me. Every time I see Glossier, I say “feeling like a pink jumpsuit”. Haha. I’ve always wanted to try their products but it was just too high up my price range if I tried all 5 full sized products. Then came along Glossier. - The Skincare Edit I love getting value sets or samplers because I really want to get a feel of the products before jumping the gun. I don’t want to purchase something and for it to not work and just waste my money. I’m so happy Glossier came out with this kit. I can now feel like a pink jumpsuit lol. This set comes with the milk jelly cleanser, future dew spray, super bounce serum, balm dotcom, rose dotcom, and priming moisturizer rich. It also comes with two headbands- one cloth and another rubber. This retails for $50. Also right now, if you spend over $60 on their website you get a free balm dotcom scarf! It’s super cute and feels soft and luxurious. I have yet to try these products. I’ve heard so many good reviews! I’m so excited! I will create another post for my review of the products individually. I just really wanted to share this product because I felt like I got a great deal on a cult favorite!

90s Lip Gloss is BACK in Style 💁🏻♀️
If y’all are a true 90s baby than you remember how important it was to always have your roller ball lipgloss or Lip Smacker product in your clear back bag! I remember loving my colorful collection and then the trend sort of died down some. But lucky for us lip gloss trend is back with our beloved TOWER 28 - ShineOn Lip Jelly in Shade “Fear Less.” This product retails for $14.00 (0.13 fl oz) at Sephora or Tower Beauty online. ☺️ There are six shades available from clear to purple and red gloss. They are truly non stick and provide moisture to the lips! You can wear it alone or as a top coat to your favorite lip stick. I love have chic the packaging and this brand stands for vegan and cruelty free products. Fragrance free if that’s not your thing and allergy tested! According to the website, three of the main ingredients are “apricot kernel oil, raspberry seed oil, and Rose hip oil.” 🥀 I bought this lip gloss two months ago and to be honest i wear it once or twice a week since I am home most of the day so I am certain this will last me a while. I would 100% recommend this to friends and family because it’s such a cute, fun, and effective product that stands for values I appreciate. As you can see the tint is light but subtle enough to give your lips a light purple color. 💜💜💜 If you’re considering buying a new lip gloss to try - I encourage y’all to get this one since it won’t cost you an arm and a leg! Let me know if you have tried this gloss in the past or now!

Unleash Your Curls! The 7 Best Tips for Maintaining Beautiful, Bouncy, Curly Hair
Say goodbye to bad hair days full of frizz and fluff and hello to beautifully healthy curly hair with these 7 top tips.
The BEST lip gloss and highlighter duo 🖤
I’ve been trying out a lot of Fenty Beauty lately! I recently discovered her gloss bomb in Diamond Milk and absolutely fell IN LOVE with the product. I saw on Sephora they had a set with a mini gloss bomb in Fu$$y and a mini Diamond Bomb All Over Veil in How Many Carats?! for $25 and immediately put it in my cart! The Gloss Bomb is hands down my favorite formula of lip gloss! It’s not sticky and looks absolutely stunning on the lips. The shade Fu$$y is a little more sheer on the lips than the swatch. It gives you a really pretty flush to the lips with a hint of juicy sparkle. To me it personally smells like fruit punch which is so unique for a lip product. They last pretty well throughout my shift at work too. I think my only gripe is the packaging. It’s really pretty but it gets finger prints on it easily. But it’s seriously the best lip gloss I own. Now the veil highlighter is different than any highlighter I own. It’s described as a veil and it is exactly that. It’s a a beautiful, sheer wash of sparkle on your cheekbones. If you don’t like sparkle in your highlight you won’t like this. It’s hard to see in the swatch but it just gracefully dusts your cheeks with fine white glitter and makes you look so ethereal. The highlighter is really small but I haven’t found myself going through it really fast so I don’t mind it. It’s become one of my favorite highlighters in my collection. (Also, disclaimer. Mine looks peach because of my foundation. Somehow my foundation from my brush rubbed off on the product. It applies like the picture of it on Sephora and looks that way) Personally for me I find this set 100% worth it. I think both products are stunning and high quality. They are definitely on the smaller side but are such favorite products of mine I don’t mind it. FENTY BEAUTY - Diamond Bomb Baby Mini Lip Gloss and Highlighter Set
