the $36 highlighter that broke the internet ✨
hello everyone! so recently i went to ulta and this caught my eye 👁 i have a bit of a spending problem lol. but i LOVE super intense highlighter and anything iridescent, so i knew i had to try it. i had seen this highlighter all over instagram, but i never thought it was worth the money until i saw it in real life. in reality, it looks like a rainbow! it has yellow, gold, blue, pink, and a little green shifts in it. its subtle, yet bold at the same time. as someone whos quite pale, ive always struggled with finding a highlighter that doesnt leave a dark streak on my face when its not hitting the light. this is white, so it works for every skin color. i have seen people who are really pale use it and it looks stunning, and i have seen people who have deep skin wear it and it looks even more stunning. if you have medium-deep skin, they do make two other colors that are darker if you dont want such an intense highlight. (i bought the shade “diamond fire”, the other shades are “fancy pink” and “canary”) the photo doesnt do it justice. in person and on my face, you can see all the different colors in it, especially in daylight. my camera is just being weird😐 it has no glitter to it really, so it looks very sheen on the skin. i love both glitter and sheen highlighter, so either way is fine by me. i know a lot of people dont like glitter though, so this highlighter is for you if you dont!☺️ it applies very smoothly and pops instantly. i use a small brush to swipe it on my cheeks and viola! instant euphoria vibes 🌈 plus, it lats all day on my oily skin! now, is it worth $36? yes and no. anything from too faced is going to be expensive, but even this is a lot. if you’re short on money, there’s many other brands that make similar products for a lot less. i know milani makes a blue-toned highlighter, and colourpop makes a purple one i love. if you are okay with spending the money, then its definitely worth it, because it gives a sparkle like no other✨ lemme know what you think of this highlighter! would you spend $36? dont forget to follow and cheer😊💖 Too Faced - Diamond Light Highlighter

hello everyone! today i am reviewing the heavy metal glitter liner from urban decay! i love glitter and ive never bought anything from urban decay before some i am going into this with an open mind! first of all, this product is quite expensive at $21. its not a ton either, its only 0.25 oz. so, its pretty small. i do like the applicator. its a very small brush that picks up only a little at a time so you can be precise. it is a little difficult to get a lot out of the bottle if thats what you want❤️ the glitter itself is very beautiful yet a little patchy to apply. its a little frustrating and it almost looks a little clear unless light it shining directly on the glitter. i think this may be because of the color i got. maybe i just need to use more 😐 either way, it lasts all day and is very gorgeous, so im still giving it four stars!! lemme know what u think! dont forget to follow and like❤️ URBAN DECAY - Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner (im also very wearing COLOURPOP - In a Trance Shadow Palette , COLOURPOP - Super Shock Shadow , e.l.f. - Intense Ink Eyeliner , L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Original Mascara )

my favorite nail polish for any occasion ❤️
hello everyone! today i am showcasing my favorite nail polish that works for any occasion! sinful colors makes really good nail polish that doesnt chip, and goes on to fake nails nicely😊 personally, i think the most flattering nail colors are ones that are close to your skin color. this makes it appear more natural, and the mistakes dont show as much! thats why i chose the shade “gold n’ roses” 🌹 this shade looks close to my skin, but is also very glittery and beautiful ❤️ i pair it with my Sally Hansen - Mega Strength Ultra Shine Top Coat to help make it last longer! i prefer to use it on false, glue on nails that i do myself at home. the polish stays on false nails a lot longer than real ones! i will do a tutorial soon on how i make my fake nais last long💖💖 on false nails especially, youre going to have to do two thin coats to get the true color. otherwise, it will be too sheer. this nail polish dries pretty fast, so dont worry about it being too wet to paint over again. let me know what your favorite nail polish color is below! 💅🏽 dont forget to follow and cheer SINFULCOLOR - Professional Nail Polish

the worlds best primer is $8✨
hello everyone! today i am reviewing the poreless putty primer by elf! let me know what you think of this product and don’t forget to follow and cheer!💗 this primer has a nice, creamy and thick texture that spreads over the skin like butter and grips makeup. i was actually a little skeptical of this texture, but i found it worked quite well! ive never actually found a primer that seriously hides pores, but this one does! my skin looked like a baby! it looked natural, yet poreless. it evened out my texture and made my skin look and feel smooth. it has squalane in it, so its very hydrating and good for your skin. check out my previous post about squalane to learn more😊 but, just because a primer feels nice doesnt mean it will preform well. i was skeptical, but i was pleasantly surprised at the end of the day! i have very oily skin, and although this isn’t specifically for oily skin, it still controlled my oil and somehow made my foundation last- even under a hot, sweaty mask!! its also able to use for all skin types. when i got home after hours of work, my foundation still looked great!! (i used my Juvia's PLACE - I am Magic Velvety Matte Foundation ) so, overall, i think this will be my go to primer from now on! what do u think of elf and this product? lemme know below😊💖💖 e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer

how to spice up your straight hair!🌶
hello everyone! today i am showing you some looks and giving you some tips on how to style and work with your straight hair! these hairstyles may work for curly hair, but the probably are easier to do with straight hair. so, i have extremely straight, fine, and thick hair. it does not hold curls whatsoever, and i dont like using heat on my hair. not to mention i have so much hair that it takes me three hours to curl my whole head! because of this, i opt for leaving my hair straight, but still keeping it stylish. straight doesnt have to mean boring! first of all, i care for my hair using various shampoos. i shower every other day, and have to brush my hair every few hours or its a rats nest. my hair is also very dry, and i found that the only conditioner that really works for it is GARNIER - Whole Blends Smoothing Conditioner With Coconut Oil & Cocoa Butter Extracts its literally like $4 at walgreens and works great! other that that, the only other product i use in my hair is ARGAN MAGIC - 10 in 1 Treatment Leave in Spray , which provides moisture and helps with tangles. its good to use a hair mist to help with any frizz or dryness! ive had a tough time finding hairstyles that suit me, so here are some of my favorites! dutch braids dutch braids are a classic! they keep hair from getting tangled and can be very casual or dressed up! they also can curl your hair overnight 🌙 its a little tricky to learn how to do, and if you cant do them i suggest you watch my french braid dupe tutorial here on cherie! the difference between french and dutch braids is that you braid over and in the middle for a french braid, but for a dutch braid you braid under and to the middle. its a little tricky to explain! if you cant do these, you can also just do two normal braids! half up half down half up half down works for everyone, but it looks very sleek with straight hair! it adds volume if you have thin hair as well. in this photo, i did a high pony on the top of my head with a scruncie. the scruncie adds style and class✨ other things you can do are half up half down bun, or a braid, or anything you can come up with! “covering” the band an easy way to add style to a straight head of hair is by putting your hair up in one or two ponytails, then using a smaller strand of hair to wrap around where you placed the band/scrunchie. this “hides” the band. you can hold it in place with a bobby pin. this is also very classy (if not as messy as mine) and can also be done with braids! so, lemme know what you think! how do you care for your straight hair? dont forget to follow and cheer❤️❤️

Bye Bye Razor Bumps
Clearly I have a love affair with Aveeno 💕 Aveeno - Therapeutic Shave Gel So this is my favorite shaving gel of all time and I do love their other shaving cream as well! It doesn’t get better than this. I used to always get razor bumps on my bikini line and sometimes even under my armpits. This saved me forsure. It makes your skin feel AMAZING, it’s formulated with oatmeal and vitamin e. It’s such a rich formula, you will fall in love. It’s best for dry sensitive skin and of course razor bumps. I feel like I shave less when I use this as well! Now of course if you’re not using a decent razor, your always going to get bumps. Ps. Mens razors are the best 🙌🏼 If your still having bumps down there or anywhere, definitely give this guy a try :) INGREDIENTS Water, Palmitic Acid, Triethanolamine, Isopentane, Sorbitol, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Sorbitan Stearate, Isobutane, Sunflower Seed Oil Glyceride, Hydroxyethylcellulose, PEG-12 Dimethicone, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Flour, Phenoxyethanol, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Ethylparaben, Benzaldehyde, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Allantoin

Make sweat straight up DISAPPEAR
Ya’ll I’m going to be honest, but this little bottle, part of the TRADER JOE'S - Watermelon Mask and Facial Mist Set , has performed miracles in front of my eyes. I have teased about Trader Joe’s but I finally went because I am exactly the type of person who would and should shop there (chewy granola people). I had heard about their new watermelon products, and how they are dupes for higher end products. If you’ve done so little as read my bio, you know I’m passionate about finding underdogs in unexpected places. A budget barbarian. A dupe duchess. My husband and I were walking around outside for an hour waiting on a sushi order. We picked a horrible time: it was 90degrees, cloudless, and the height of the sun. I’ve already encouraged him to use my SPF moisturizer, so he was down to try the watermelon spray. Note that he sweats like a Yeti in Swamp Ape territory, and is constantly wiping his face in the summer. Three sprays and moments later, his face was dry and supple. That sweat straight up emigrated from his face. It vanished like a rabbit in a Vegas magic show, or a friend with a truck when you need to move. Banished, gone. This man has pores that can swallow cities and more oil than a Texas oil mogul. The mist had wicked away his sweat, balanced his pH, and kept his face hydrated. I’m honestly still amazed at how well it worked. It doesn’t do the same for my dry skin, as I sweat much less and use intensive moisturizing toners to balance my pH, but he is a convert. He went to TJ’s just to get his own bottle for work. He works in a kitchen and this mist has changed his comfort at work. If he’s getting hot and sweaty, he just spritzed his and he’s hydrated and dry. Buy it or don’t, try it and see. If you have oily skin this just might be magic!

Beautiful Disney Eye Shadow Palette !
I absolutely adore this palette! I’m not the most experienced when it comes to makeup, but when I saw an ad for this palette, I knew that I NEEDED it! It included colors that I was really wanting (I wear a lot of pinks and reds) and the packaging was adorable. I also already trust and love COLOURPOP’s shadows. My COLOURPOP - Kathleen Lights Zodiac Palette Empty was my staple for the longest. These COLOURPOP - Midnight Masquerade Eyeshadow Palette shadows are so smooth and have amazing coverage! The thicker glitters are sort of creamy and pack on super well. I love adding them to the corner of my eye for a little extra pop! I don’t wear makeup very often and when I do , it’s not a lot. I included a few pictures of some “looks” I used the palette for. Favorite shades : Pip Nutmeg Mama Odie Djali Mrs. Potts Least favorite shades: Merryweather (I just don’t really use blues) Frog and Wife (really pretty but I don’t get much use out of it)

F.A.I.R. Beauty Cosmetics 'Ring of Gyges' Legendary Foil I hate to say that I'm 'obsessed' with makeup. The only thing that could be more annoying is if I said 'literally obsessed'. That would be punishable by electric chair. But for real I'm in love with these Legendary Foils from F.A.I.R. Beauty! Quick recap- the Legendary Foils come in 5 gram jars and retail for $15. They're cruelty free, vegan and available in 8 colors so far. They're the same type of formula as the Tammy fairy pollens. They cost a bit more because they're 5x bigger than the Pollens (5 grams vs less than 1 gram). And they ARE eye safe. It's confusing because there's similar looking products on the market that are strictly for nails and body art. While they may look the same, they're made of entirely different materials.
