Biggest Let Down 😭💗
This mascara used to be everything!!! My lashes were so long when I used this product I stopped curling them because they would hit my brows! But a while back I noticed the formula of this product changed and I was less than impressed 😫 My lashes would clump, they weren’t as long, the formula was thick, and the product had an odd smell. I though I might’ve just had a bad batch but all of the tubes I got were like this! I’m so sad because this used to be my go to... but now I wouldn’t waste my money on it! Has anyone else noticed this change??

Makeup Products for a Natural Look
On days when I’m going for a natural look (most days) these are the products I reach for and use in combination. Together these create a complete natural look! the Balm cosmetics - Balm Springs -- Blush This blush is a beautiful color and is very pigmented. I’ve never found a brush that lasts all day on me, but this does have good staying power. If you are looking for a good blush I suggest this one. L'ORÉAL - Age Perfect Radiant Concealer My under-eyes are so sensitive that a lot of concealers cause them to burn and flake. This concealer has never bothered my skin which is really hard to find! I recommend trying it no matter what age you are. WINKY LUX - Strobing Balm Highlighter I use this product as a cream eyeshadow and I love it! You can use a tiny bit and make it look super natural and glowy or you can use more and combine it with other shadows to make a glamorous eye look. I love how versatile it is! Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara This mascara is a classic and a cult favorite. For good reason, too! It makes my eyelashes look amazing. It is definitely a mascara for volume so if you prefer lengthening mascaras this probably isn’t for you. There are great drugstore alternatives for this mascara, but this is what I have been using. If you have tried these products or have any recommendations please let me know in the comments!

LET'S TALK MASCARA! 🥰
(TAGGED IN PIC FROM LEFT --> RIGHT) Today I'm going to be rating some mascaras and sharing some tips & tricks with you about, you guessed it, mascara! First let's start with tips, these will be about application & just things that may make the application easier: ￼￼BEND THE WAND! I know this seems scary but it can actually help with your application & lessen the chances of smudging. So just take your wand head & bend it to a 90° angle this will allow you to maneuver the wand better and keep you from getting that clump of mascara on your nose, you know what I'm talking about. 🤣 I promise the wand will be safe & intact as long as we don't go Hulk on it. ￼￼DRY MASCARA? This is one of my personal favorite hacks, if you accidentally left your mascara open or anything like that run the tube under hot water/keep it inside of a glass while doing other steps of your make up routine this will help smooth out the formula & make application 10x better. ￼￼SMUDGING? Use a clean spoolie (like on the back of brow pencil) AFTER mascara has dried, if you gently brush the spoolie onto your face the mascara will begin to flake off without ruining your look! ￼￼TWIRL, DON'T PUMP! I know it seems natural to pump your mascara tube for more products but please stop! When you do, it allows air inside the tube which can dry out the formula & make it susceptible to bacteria. So if you need more product, before you fully take out the wind twirl it around for even distribution of product. ￼￼MIXING! I do this all the time try using more than one type of mascara, all wands are made differently so they have different purposes I like to use a voluminous and lengthening mascara! Find a formula you love & see what you can do to make it even BETTER! Lastly I just wanna touch on different application techniques - Wiggling wand: helps maintain curl - Wiggling horizontally at lash base: thicker/voluminous lashes - Wiggling vertically at lash base: natural effect Now the fun part: RATINGS! Most are waterproof formula because I feel it holds my lashes up longer. ￼￼MAYBELLINE - Volum' Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara - an old favorite! good volume not my favorite brush head, it is plastic. ￼￼￼benefit - They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara - don't like the "They're Real" line! everything feels dry & doesn't apply well ￼￼￼L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara - okay but too wet, smudged on me a lot ￼￼L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara - great for separating, i like to pair this with other mascaras! ￼￼essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara - current fave! all essence mascaras are bangers but this one is the BEST! ￼￼Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara - stayed put but almost too well! need industrial grade remover for this Thanks for reading. ❤️ #cheriepartner
Cute VS Cool🤔Easy Day to Night Makeup Hacks!
I do love a sensible smokey eye and sexy dark lips, but it makes me uncomfortable when my teachers or classmates ask me, "where are you going" when I wear heavy makeup to college in the morning. If you've ever been to a live bar or partied after a long day at work, then you know the struggle of transforming your makeup in a very short time is real. As a punk lover, I just can't miss even one minute of the happy hours in the live house on Friday night after class. Here are my 3 hacks to spice up my look fast after grabbing a cool top, taking my makeup from cute-at-school to cool-at-bar without having to redo the entire face: Hack 1: Get Winged Adding a wing to my bare eye makeup is one of the best ways to change the overall makeup style instantly. My favorite eyeliner to achieve this is smashbox - Always Sharp Waterproof Kôhl Eyeliner. Drag it from the inner corner of my eyes, extend it a bit toward the end, and flick it out at last. Hack 2: Add more Lashes The night is all about drama and fun! Add another coat of mascara with a volumizing, waterproof formula, something like Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara will define my eyes more. Hack 3: Brighten Eyes Up The bold smokey eyes are the key to fantastic night makeup, so I always take smashbox - Photo Edit Eye Shadow Trio with me to apply darker eyeshadows on my crease for a grunge look or a sexy smokey finish. This palette is not big and is quite pigmented, so I always take it with me and do me extra makeup after class very quickly. Furthermore, I also line my waterline with the MAYBELLINE - Maybelline Lasting Drama Light Eyeliner in Starlight Gold. Its extra sparkle adds exactly the right amount of details I need to stand out in clubs or bars. Hack 4: Wear Bold Lipsticks You know the lights will be subtler at night, so I'd like to apply lipsticks with bold colors on my lips. I love punk makeup, therefore I often go for a dark lipstick like LIPSTICK QUEEN - Lipstick Black Lace Rabbit, and you can get brighter colors if you like. Quite easy, right? Hope you guys have a chill night! ❤🍺
I do like this product. I have it in the color Dark. Because my eyebrows are black as night, but beside the point, this is a pretty good product. It retails for $29.99, but I’m sure you can find it cheaper. If you’re someone who loves using powder on your eyebrows this product is made for you. It comes with pretty much everything you need. It comes in I believe 3 other color ranges. I’ve never seen any products like this and I think it’s pretty cool. It does come with 2 powders, a brush, and a mascara looking thing but for your eyebrows. It made mine look really good! The powders are so silky, they spread very easily and smooth. Pointless story: when I slit my eyebrow and was in the midst of growing it out again after enjoying it for a month, this powder saved my life. BROW BAR By Reema - Brow Makeover Kit

Inglot Gel Liner & Duraline
Hands down the best eyeliner ever! I’ve been using it for years and I love it. It’s the blackest if blacks and it’s smooth. You don’t get any skipping and you don’t have to hold your eye down to get a smooth and precise application. While it’s long lasting on its own, the duraline does extend the wear time. I had to buy the duraline bc I tend to forget to close the lids of my all my potted products 😅 That being said, I love this product too though I mostly use it to mix into this eyeliner. I’ve mixed it in with different eyeshadows to make colorful eyeliner and that seems to work pretty well. Love both of these they’re amazing. I could cry for days and get caught in the rain and this shit would not budge! INGLOT - Duraline INGLOT - AMC Eyeliner Gel
INGLOT-AMC Eyeliner Gel
Before I even opened this mascara for the first time I love the packaging! It’s a great size and has a great feel to it and the color is super cute. Now...from the name I was expecting huge dramatic lashes. I’m one who loves long voluminous lashes. This didn’t do that. This mascara gives me natural looking fluffy lashes. They’re not any longer or really volumized; they’re just slightly amped up natural lashes. This mascara didn’t clump or flake for me even if I didn’t use a setting spray. My eyes were never irritated. To help this mascara be a bit “more” I use a lash primer and a ton of it (my favorite it the Cils Booster from Lancôme). So this mascara is pretty great, but didn’t wow me by any means since I like both volume and length from my mascara.

Work or Fail 🤔 lash serum
Rimmel lash accelerator serum with /avec growth-lash complex Advanced serum for beautifying long remarkable strong lashes apply to bare lashes like a mascara. Use precision tip along lash line or sparse browse. wear under mascara as an overnight treatment or even on brows. clinically tested ophthalmologist tested 0.37 fl 0z 11mil So much for the big hype! This serum didn’t do a thing for my lashes. I tried it every way it says and it was just a huge disappointment. If u try it as an overnight treatment you wake up with ur eyes stuck together I just didn’t care for it at all I used it for a month and it didn’t do anything at all. Complete waist of my $$ The mascara has fibers This want to bad but still wouldn’t buy it again. It made my eyes irritated and my lashes clumped. I expected way more for it being such a big hype. But it was a total fail 0.33fl oz 10ml

Is This Magic?! My $5 Holy Grail Mascara
I think lashes are what makes the look. It is the star of the show when it comes to make up in my opinion. A look wouldn’t be complete without mascara and falsies for some dramatic looks. I am a mascara junkie! Benefit’s They’re real mascara was my HG for the longest time. I’m also a huge fan of Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara and Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara. This $5 Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara replaced all the items I listed above. This mascara gives me length and volume at the same time. I also love how dark it is. I am not exactly sure if this is a fiber mascara, but it is giving me that effect. This doesn’t clump either. My only complaint is that this mascara is a bxtchhhhhh to remove! However, nothing an eye makeup remover can’t do. It also smudges so I highly recommend using a lash primer. I am a huge fan of L’oreal’s primer mascara. That prevents this mascara from flaking and smudging. I think going the extra mile with the primer is worth it despite the flaking because I get compliments all the time when I wear this. I also get asked a lot what mascara I use. Benefit’s they’re real mascara also flakes and is a pain in the bum to clean, but this is a $5 mascara. essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara This mascara is available for purchase on Ulta. I believe they are having a buy 1 get 50% off deal right now too. What is your favorite mascara? Francesca 💋
