Are These 26$ Lashes Worth it?

TianaMiller
Recently I went to Ulta and picked out some quality lashes with the intent that I could get at least 30 wears out of a single pair. I typically get the 5 pack of the ARDELL - Cluster Wispies Demi Wispies
and I usually get 2 wears out of each pair- so 10 wears total for around 12$ ($1.20/wear) I picked up the BLINKING BEAUTÉ - Faux Mink Luxe Innovative Lashes
for 26$. They have a cotton band that is extremely flexible which makes application so easy! They’re also light in weight and don’t give your eye lids that annoying heavy feeling. These are said to give you around 30 wears which would come out to around $0.87/wear. So cheap!! These are 1000% worth the cost, even if I only get 20 wears. I think I’ve officially converted to higher end lashes and will definitely be giving some other brands a try!! **these are the “Brill” lashes and they would be perfect for people with smaller eyes- they’re also great for a more natural look since they’re not overwhelmingly long and just provide some volume at the base of the lashes. What are your favorite high end lashes?? Eye Look Details NATASHA DENONA - Glam Eyeshadow Palette

My Favorite Falsies! 👑 ✨ 💖
I am OBSESSED with falsies! This is going to sound extra, but I honestly feel like a different woman when I put them on. They complete a makeup look and can make it go from 0-100. They are an essential part of opening your eyes and enhancing the best features of your eyes. You can go for natural ones, dramatic, attention grabbing and whatever mood you’re feeling! In fact, I love them so much that I actually used to invest in lash extensions. I have been using falsies since I was in high school so I have experienced good falsies and bad ones too. I have almond shaped eyes and I understand that it could be overwhelming to find the right falsies for your eye shape...this is one of the reasons why I LOVE House of Lashes. They have an eye shape guide and recommend which lash styles are best for you. My top three favorite lashes from this brand are: Au Naturale, Bouidoir Lite and Demure Lite. 1) Au Naturale I go for these often. They are wearable for any occasion. This gives a “your lash but better guide”. I also use this when I create a dramatic look, but don’t want to over power it with lashes. 2) Boudoir Lite This has a dense center. They are dramatic, but soft enough. I go for these when I go out 3) Demure Lite These are also soft and more on the natural side with an oomph. This helps open my eyes and emphasize any eye look. House of lashes are a bit on the mid range price. However, ELF and Ardell are also my fav falsies that are on the affordable side. My favorite “your lashes, but better” falsies is the Ardell Wispies. These look sooo natural! I use it as an alternative to my Au Naturale. Another falsies that I always grab for especially if I want the attention stealing is the ELF Social Butterfly. These are faux mink lashes and did I mention they are $3?! Ardell and ELF are very affordable, but HOL falsies are much easier to apply so if you’re a beginner, I would suggest you invest in HOL. It’s worth it! Lashes can be reused 15+ times depending on how you care for them. Here are my quick step by step for falsies: 1) Measure the lashes to your eyes and cut to your desired length. Most falsies are large so always measure it to your eye first. 2) For easier application, grab one of those lash glues with wand. Apply extra glue on the corners of the lashes because these tend to come off easily 3) Wait 30 seconds for the glue to become tacky then grab your tweezers to apply falsies closest to your lash line. 4) Hold it until it is fully glued to your natural lashes 5) This step is optional, but apply mascara to diffuse your falsies to your natural lashes. This will give you a natural result 6) Apply eyeliner or use a dark eyeshadow to hide the lash band. 7) Voila! Then enjoy! It took me a while to get this down. I’ve been applying eyelashes for more than 10 years and even to this day, I’m still not the best at it. Just keep practicing! What is your favorite falsies? Xoxo, Francesca 💋 #CheriePartner

2020 TOP 5 🥰
Hey Cherie Fam 🍒 I hope you’re all having a good day. I can’t believe 2020 is over in a few days! This year has been the wildest roller coaster. My top 5 for 2020 are: 1️⃣ PRODUCT ✨ •This is a bit hard, but I guess I have to choose one. I would say I can’t live without my Drunk Elephant C-Firma and Framboos, but I’ve been loving those products since 2019. A new product I added to my skin care routine this year is Paula’s Choice BHA exfoliator. This was recommended by a friend and swore it made his pores disappear. I bit the bullet and I’m so glad I did. It made my pores much smaller and my skin more glowy PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator 2️⃣ TREND ✨ •My favorite trend this year is niacinamide. Niacinamide reduces inflammation which may help ease redness from eczema, acne, and other inflammatory skin conditions. It also helps build keratin, a type of protein that keeps your skin firm and healthy. My sunscreen, which is Supergoop! - Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40has niacinamide and so does my cleanser. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser I decided to purchase Paula’s Choice niacinamide booster and I have no regrets 3️⃣ MY BEST LOOK ✨ • I love colors and exploring, but I think my best look is a soft glam smokey eye. I used my Natasha Denona Glam palette here 🥰 4️⃣ FAVORITE CREATOR ON CHERIE ✨ • I have a couple. I love @emily_because we seem to be interested in the same make up style and same make up products. Too bad she doesn’t post here anymore 😢 come backkk! • I love @@Jillianb1because she is also very talented and I love her content • I also love @madisonnoonsbecause her content is versatile. She also posts about makeup and lifestyle. • I have so many more such as @bealizbeauty@Malloryand@D.Bennettthere’s a lot of great creators on this platform and I’m glad I get to see so many talented people 5️⃣ SOMETHING I LEARNED • Not beauty related, but something I learned is to cherish every moment and appreciate every little thing. I travel quite often and had so many travel plans for 2020. When the shelter in place hit, I was shattered because I cant travel and let alone go get brunch or bar hop with my friends. Even working from home is a bit disappointing because I am an extrovert and thrive off being social. However, I re-discovered my love for make up. Therefore, I was able to create looks and share it on this platform. I am able to spend time with family often and built a better bond and relationship with them. I live about an hour away from them and barely saw them so I’m thankful this gave me the opportunity to spend more time with them Francesca 💋

My Current Favorite Eyeshadow Palettes!
I have probably hundreds of eyeshadow palettes so a palette has to really “wow” me to use it on a regular basis. I’ve gotten better about wasting money on products that I’m not going to get a lot of use out of, but palettes have always been my weakness. These six palettes are my top 6 for 2020! First off, #6 goes to my VISEART - Solstice Petit Pro Eyeshadow Palette I absolutely love the Petit Pro series, and this little beauty is a perfect addition to my Apricotine palette from last year. Viseart shadows have been my favorite ever since I bought my first palette from them, and I get more use out of their palettes than any other brand! My #5 would have to be the NATASHA DENONA - Bronze Eyeshadow Palette I am obsessed with it’s gorgeous bronzey color story, and the metallic sun this beauty are beyond stunning. My only. complaint is that I wish it had more matte shades, but I’ve learned to work with the few that it has. This was definitely my most-used palette this past summer! My #4 palette would have to be my Too Faced - Born This Way The Natural Nudes Eyeshadow Palette When I saw the first promo photos I wasn’t really a fan of the layout, but once I bought it and started using it I totally fell in love. The layout actually makes it super easy to create a quick look and I love that it has such an even mixture of mattes and shimmers. The color story is gorgeous and I think the quality of the shadows is incredible compared to some of their other palettes. It’s most definitely my favorite Too Faced palette of all time. My #3 palette is my VISEART - Midsommer Petit Pro Eyeshadow Palette I love cool tones so much, especially pinky cool tones, so this little beauty is a dream. The color story is so beautiful and I love how travel friendly the Viseart Petit Pro and Edit palettes are! I can’t wait to see what other additions they have in store for both series. My #2 palette is my NATASHA DENONA - Glam Eyeshadow Palette Once again, I am obsessed with my cool tones and this beauty has the prettiest gray toned cool shadows ever! The metallic shades are absolutely stunning, and I love using this palette to create a cool smokey eye. I haven’t been able to put it down since I picked it up. I’m also blown away with the quality of every shade. Last, but most definitely not least, my #1 eyeshadow palette is my VISEART - Paris EDIT Eye Shadow Palette I could use this palette for the rest of my life and be fine. This palette has the prettiest variety of shadows, and the shimmer and metallic shades are beyond breathtaking. The blue shade on the bottom left hand corner is probably my all-time favorite shadow. I love using it to add depth to my outer V when I create an eye look and the lighter shimmers open up my eyes in the most beautiful way. It’s such a beautiful palette! #BeautyWithoutBarriers #CheriePartner

I Wanted To Love It
This mascara has been making the rounds on TikTok so that last time I was in Ulta I picked it up. As far as mascara goes I do have really high expectations and Lancôme is honestly a benchmark for me. If a mascara isn’t comparable to LANCÔME - Monsieur Big Mascaraor LANCÔME - Hypnôse Volume-à-porter MascaraI just can’t make time for it. I want volume and I want length from my mascara and I don’t want it to be fussy. I want it quick and easy to apply and I want dramatic lashes in return. That being said I felt this mascara was very “meh”. It was okay, but I don’t see why it’s getting so much hype other than it being $5. It felt like just another drugstore mascara. It was also very wet as in you can very easily get mascara everywhere. Also I found I had to go over and over my lashes to get them separated and coated satisfactorily for me. I was expecting more volume from this product even if it did lengthen okay. I don’t have much flaking at all with this mascara, I do have to say, even without a setting spray. Previously I had used the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Lash Brag Volumizing Mascaraand it flaked something terrible; so that was a plus. The formula also didn’t irritate my eyes so that was another plus for this product. I thought this mascara was fine. For me it wasn’t much to write home about, but it did an okay job. I don’t hate it, I’m just not compelled to buy it again. I haven’t used this with a lash primer (maybe I’d get more volume using one) I may pick one up to try it, but it’s another step and I’m lazy. For $5, though, it’s a fantastic bargain and is definitely way more affordable than my permanent favorites for sure. It’s a great inexpensive option, but just don’t expect it to outdo some cult favorites like Lancôme.

My 2020 Top 5 💄🍒
PRODUCT : YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Cleanser Refill Youth To The People's Superfoods Cleanser was shockingly reviving, and not in any manner drying, as I'd foreseen because of a portion of the fixings. What I delighted in about the item the most, both due to and notwithstanding of its value point, was its capacity to truly last. I found the jug endured me a while, and a limited quantity makes a significant decent frothy foam when applied to effectively clammy skin. TREND : CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide I’m loving this sunscreen with tinted texture 😍 MY BEST LOOK : i love natural look bc I don’t put makeup on everyday I love to be natural sunscreen on and moisturizer and that’s it . Im good to go . CeraVe - Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 for Face with Zinc Oxide Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara FAVORITE CREATOR ON CHERIE :@D.Bennett@DermDoctor bc I’m very inspired by them and started more taking care of my skin and skincare product with ingredients to . SOMETHING I LEARNED: when I started cherie and learned few things ingredients list , product info and do’s or don’t about my skincare and makeup 💄.

Might as well post my February Faves! @peterthomasrothofficial Pumpkin Enzyme Mask- this is my second tub and while not having it for a while, I realized I missed it! Similar results as the DE Babyfacial but smells like pumpkin pie! You can definitely feel the spiciness while it’s on and the results are fantastic! @theouai Super Dry Shampoo- this is my second bottle, it’s so goooood! I really don’t have to use dry shampoo for the next few days after spraying this, and it prolongs my hair wash for at least another two days! @olaplex No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner- this makes my hair feel and look amazing, especially after I dyed it! @lancomeofficial Skin Feels Good Skin Tint- Lancome makes some amazing foundations! I’ve been loving the light/medium coverage this gives and I love tubes, they’re so easy to use! @hourglasscosmetics Vanish Airbrush Concealer- people either love or hate this concealer but I’m so impressed! It looks good all day and doesn’t look cakey or dry! @freshbeauty Sugar Lychee Perfume- I need all of their perfumes now! This has such a unique and fresh, sweet scent, I’ve been obsessed! @maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara- I forgot how good drug store mascaras really are and this one reminded me! It gives crazy volume and length and it’s super black! @morphebrushes Mega Matte Lipstick “Boy Toy”- the formula isn’t my favorite but the shade is one of a kind, gives me 90s concealer lips vibes and I’m loving it! @Sephora Flawless Airbrush #56- This brush is the best for blending out concealer, Sephora brushes have been my obsession lately! And they’ve been on sale so I can’t pass them up!

💥 This is the Maybelline the colossal volume express mascara and this a drugstore mascara that blew my mind💥 💥 Its not clumpy at all, gives extra volume to my lashes and its affordable! 10/10 recommend 💥I personally really like this mascara for too many things, one of them is that its really easy to remove, its not waterproof. But personally I like a “easy to take off” mascara because I’m to lazy😂 💥Retails for $7.99 on Ulta but can be found cheaper on stores like TjMaxx or Marshalls 😇 MAYBELLINE - Volum' Express The Colossal Mascara

Cold treatment for puffy skin 🧊
Cold treatment for puffy skin 🧊
I can’t be the only one who wakes up with puffy face in the morning. 🧊 getting older, I’ve noticed that I’ve inherited my mom’s morning facial redness and puffiness (❤️ u mom) 🧊 as a result, I’ve taken to washing my face in the morning with cold water and gently massaging my skin with cleanser to get rid of that puffiness around my cheeks 🧊 but one issue that I’m noticing now is that my under eyes are also puffy in the morning (probably because of my inconsistent sleep schedule) 🧊 so when browsing through target, I picked up this facial roller. I got it after watching a dermatologist’s tik tok abt how her 75 year old mother has such beautiful, wrinkle free skin (one part of her moms routine is using an ice roller on her face) 🧊 this ice roller is small but it fits perfectly in those hard to reach areas of the face like the corner of the nose or under the eyes 🧊 All you do is chill it in your fridge or freezer for 15 mins before use, and then gently roll it over your forehead, cheeks, jawline and under eyes. Careful not to tug or pull as you roll the ice roller. 🧊 I really like it so far, it remains cold for a decent amount of time and I do notice my face is less puffy after using it.

Disappointing Mascara 💔
Disappointing Mascara 💔
This REVLON - So Fierce Mascara what is a purchase that I picked up because of Taylor Wynn on YouTube. She liked using this as a layering mascara. So I tried it that way with some of my favorite mascaras and I didn’t like it very much I found it my mascara was flaking and it just wasn’t looking very good. So I tried it again on its own because I can usually get any mascara to look pretty decent on my lashes, but this did not look good on my upper lashes. It didn’t do much for them but not only that it flaked and smudged everywhere which I am not a huge fan of. Then I tried this out on my lower lashes and it was OK except for the fact that again it was flaking and smudging everywhere. I definitely think you can get better mascaras at the drugstore and I would not recommend this one.

Maybelline Colossal máscara, has been one that has always been around in my makeup bag! I absolutely love this mascara when I want an absolute extra volume! (And lets face it, we all want that) 🙌🏽 This mascara has many versions but I always stick to this one that I’m more familiar with. It never disappoints! No clumps and you can layer this baby up easily! I would lost deff recommend this to anyone who’s obsessed with mascara like myself! This is probably the 4th one that I empty but I always find myself reaching for it! This Mascara is sold for $6 which is a STEAL! MAYBELLINE - Colossal Mascara Go Extreme

Mascara is probably the product that makes the BIGGEST difference in my look. It adds depth and definition to my eyes and definitely makes my eyes more of a focal point. I love layering mascaras to get a super-long fluttery effect. For me, a mascara has to add length, add volume and hold a curl. My lashes aren’t too hard to keep curled so a waterproof formula usually does the trick! My current favorite mascaras include: HONEST - Extreme Length Mascara + Lash Primer - super lengthening - separates and volumizes too - not waterproof but smudgeproof (and doesn’t flake!) MAYBELLINE - Falsies Lash Lift Mascara - holds a curl really well - can build up to really “false” looking lashes - waterproof! L'ORÉAL - Unlimited Length and Lift Waterproof Mascara - lengthens (after a few layers), volumizes and holds a curl well - waterproof! - very full, defined lashes
