Make up tool Morphe M439
💐MORPHE - M439 Deluxe Buffer Brush So my favorite foundation brush is the Morphe M439 brush . I’ve used this for years . I’ve gone through a few . I have combination skin so my face gets oily fairly quick in some areas along with some hyper pigmentation . I feel like when I apply foundation with this brush versus a beauty blender my foundation lasts longer and it gives me a better coverage as shown in the second picture . It is made with synthetic bristles , the only downside of this brush is that I tend to wash my brushes fairly often and they get all wet so the bristles end up coming loose and shedding and I end up buying a new one. But each one of them have lasted me over a year of constant everyday use. So maybe I just need to better my brush cleaning techniques MORPHE - M439 Deluxe Buffer Brush 🌺. 🦋I first bought this in a set and have continued to repurchase this brush alone. I love it and would totally recommend if you want a flawless face . It retails for only $15 . It’s such a steal 😱

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion
🐸Hey there ! It’s me again ! Today I want to talk about the Mario Badescu Drying lotion . I love this product . I have acne prone skin so I often find my self having unwanted zits . This product does a great job in drying them . Usually I would put this two nights in a row on the spot and by day 2 the zit would most likely be gone 🐸 🌈I’ve been using this for years . I was first introduced to it by going through Sephora’s website and looking for acne products. 🌈 I have combination skin but this product works for all skin types . The 3 main ingredients are 1️⃣ Salicylic Acid which exfoliates to help shed pore-clogging dead skin cells. 2️⃣Sulfur which purify pores and absorbs excess oil. And 3️⃣Calamine which delivers a cooling, soothing effect. I love this product and would totally recomend. Priced at $17 this is totally a steal . Most of Mario Badescu products are ! So funny story . My first bottle ever of this product I would shake so the pink in the bottom and the clear liquid would all mix up . Later I found out you aren’t supposed to do that . I apply this with a q-tip . So the correct way of applying this is sticking the q tip into the bottle letting it coat with the pink and then taking it out so it can soak with the clear liquid . Never shake the bottle ! 😂😂😂MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

💗 If we are talking perfumes the Chance Eau Tendre by Chanel deserves a mention . 💗 🌺 I have a preference for floral scents . I don’t like anything too strong because it causes me fatigue . Other well known Chanel perfumes like Mademoiselle or the very famous No5 are just way too strong and repugnant in my opinion . Not this one , this is a nice soft floral scent . The packaging of this is soo luxurious and pretty and girly . 💐 🦋The key notes are Citron , Jasmine & Teakwood 🦋 🌸I saw this being one of Sephora’s Bestsellers so I knew I had to try it . I tried it at the store and fell in love . This is my second bottle. This is priced at $115 for a big 3.4 oz bottle which is great for a Chanel perfume . The only downside to this is that it does not last all day like other perfumes might last . It’s a very soft & delicate perfume . But in my opinion totally worth it. 🌸CHANEL - CHANCE EAU TENDRE Eau De Parfum Spray

Hey there ! It’s been a bit since I haven’t posted on here , life has been very busy . I wanted to talk about my favorite foundation and it is the KVD vegan beauty Lock it Foundation . 💗This foundation is in liquid form and has a creamy / liquid consistency . I use the shade Neutral 47 which is described as a light bisque with neutral undertones💗 🌹 Ihave oily skin so ive tried many foundations and they always end up making my face very shinny or just not lasting enough . Not with this one . This is the perfect matte foundation with full coverage that lasts all day 🌹 ✅I love this , I first decided to try it because I took a foundation test on the Sephora website and it suggested this one 😍😍😍😍 I would absolutely recommend this if you have oily skin and struggle with a foundation becoming shinny on your face after a couple hours . This is priced at $37 which is fairly reasonable . It is definitely worth it ✅KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Lock-It Foundation

⭐️Lip Scrub ⭐️
The Bite Beauty⭐️ Agave Weekly Lip Scrub ⭐️ is the best scrub ever in my opinion . ⭐️Function⭐️ This is a three-in-one lip scrub to cleanse, exfoliate, and condition, for smooth, soft lips, with a delicious vanilla flavor. ⭐️Target / Concerns ⭐️ This is targeted for dry lips ⭐️ texture / consistency ⭐️ This is a scrub , has the most delicious smell and it’s brown in color My opinion I first got this as a sample Birthday gift @Sephora a couple years ago and ever since then I loved it !

🧪𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐀𝐧𝐭𝐢-𝐀𝐜𝐧𝐞 𝐈𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐞𝐝𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬🧪 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐨𝐢𝐧 - patience is what you need if you want this ingredient to do wonders for your skin. great for acne and anti-aging - surely will be my bestfriend for a long time. although I think it doesn’t do much for my pigmentations, this has improved the texture of my skin tremendously. ~ 𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐨-𝐀, 𝐜𝐮𝐫𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐲 𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐦𝐮𝐥𝐚, 𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐥𝐮𝐦𝐚 𝟎.𝟓% 𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐭 𝐙𝐢𝐧𝐜 - the underrated one. I’ve always loved zinc for my scalp. I use it for my hairline, it’s an awesome ingredient for seborrheic dermatitis (self diagnosed😅) When I learned about malassezia folliculitis (fungal acne) and I was positive I had it, I tried Zinc for my face and it totally got rid of the pustules/whiteheads. I use it in the morning while in the shower, lather and leave it for 5-10mins on the face then rinse off. Give it a week of two to do its magic. ~ 𝐕𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐦 𝐙 𝐁𝐚𝐫, 𝐓𝐎 𝐍𝐢𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐝𝐞+𝐙𝐢𝐧𝐜 𝐒𝐮𝐥𝐟𝐮𝐫 - I don’t see this a lot in cosmeceutical products but it’s one amazing ingredient. Just found my lost ointment not long ago. Sulfur is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. It’s great on absorbing excess oil too. Leave it on affected area and rinse off after 10mins. I usually use it once, but if the acne is stubborn I would use it again the next day. Sulfur speeds up the process of healing the skin. ❗️sulfur can burn the skin and you can end up with dark marks, never leave it on for more than 10mins. ~ 𝐬𝐮𝐥𝐟𝐮𝐫 𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 (𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐳𝐢𝐧𝐜 𝐨𝐱𝐢𝐝𝐞, 𝐒𝐀) 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘨𝘰𝘰𝘥 𝘰𝘭𝘥 𝘰𝘯𝘦𝘴: 𝐒𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐲𝐥𝐢𝐜 𝐀𝐜𝐢𝐝 - excellent pore-clearing/exfoliant especially for acne prone skin 𝐍𝐢𝐚𝐜𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐝𝐞 - reduces inflammation 𝘮𝘺 𝘤𝘶𝘳𝘰𝘭𝘰𝘨𝘺 𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘶𝘭𝘢: tretinoin 0.018% 𝐂𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐦𝐲𝐜𝐢𝐧 -antibiotic, reduces bacteria and swelling (not for long term use) 𝐀𝐳𝐞𝐥𝐚𝐢𝐜 𝐀𝐜𝐢𝐝 - anti-inflammatory , also great for rosacea sufferers

Give your skin a BOOST up💚✨
This is actually the first Paula’s Choice item I have tried. I picked it up at the boxycharm pop up sale 😉. Since I have sensitive skin, I always have issues with certain ingredients flaring up my skin or over drying (which creates both redness and dry flakes 🤢) I started incorporating this into my evening routine at first, and slowly I actually was seeing signs of redness or over drying dull flakes start to heal. So I started using it in the morning as well, and hand to the skincare Gods, this has been my little holy grail for texture and redness💚💚💚✨! Not to mention they’re a CLEAN AND CRUELTY FREE company 😊PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster #CheriesConversations

I love Youth to the People’s superfood approach to skincare— adding the powerful foods we eat for body nutrition into skincare to boost skin health. Their products are 100% vegan, natural, nontoxic, cruelty-free, sustainable & ethically-sourced. 🌿 — 🌱Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser ($36 for 8oz or $10 for 2oz): Probably my favorite cleanser of the year?? Or top 3 at the very least. Super gentle but rich in nutrients, this is an amazing non-drying cleanser that balances the skin’s pH levels. 🌱Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist ($42 for 4oz): Definitely my favorite mist!! I like that this is essentially a powerful hydrating serum in a mist form. The mist is super fine though, so you have to spray quite a bit to feel adequately quenched. 🌱Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask ($48 for 2oz): Such a rich & creamy sleeping mask that hydrates, plumps & brightens the skin overnight. I always wake up with supple, glowing skin after using this! 🌱Superfood Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer ($48 for 2oz): A lightweight, whipped cream that is loaded with superfoods like kale, spinach & green tea. A solid, refreshing moisturizer great for dry or mature skin. I loved this during the summer for a lighter but still ultra-hydrating option, but tend to reach for richer products in the winter. 🌱Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream ($58 for 2oz): I didn’t notice any improvements in my skin while using this so I rarely reach for it. However, the adaptogens like reishi, ashwagandha, rhodiola & holy basil provide benefits like protecting the skin from environmental stressors like UV rays & pollutants, which makes it difficult to see visible results. This may just be one of those that I have to trust is working! But I prefer their Superfood moisturizer for more instant results. 🌱Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliating Power Toner ($38 for 4oz): This has 8% lactic acid & 3% glycolic acid to smooth & firm the skin. Full review on this to come; I’ve only tried it a few times & my skin reacted a bit.

This changed my mind about glossy lips!
Oh my God! This lipstick! If I can have 1 nude lipstick that I’m allowed to wear for the rest of my life, this is it! I’m talking about Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips 2 in JK Magic. First, let’s talk about how this particular lippie changed my mind about shiny lips. I’m all about matte lips. Mind you, I have dry lips but matte lipsticks (in the right formula) are actually not drying and they’re filled with pigment so the color looks better. Plus, they make my lips bigger. Win, win! When I was browsing through new lipsticks to buy, I came across this collection called Hot Lips 2. If I’m not mistaken, it’s a limited edition collection. Each shade is named after a personality that Charlotte Tilbury has worked with. This particular shade is named after JK Rowling. This comes in Charlotte’s KISSING formula, it’s a luxurious shiny, moisturizing formula that leaves a bit of sheen on the lips so it looks like you’re wearing lip gloss. It’s so luxurious! The packaging looks so beautiful! It’s heavy so it’s obvious that it’s an expensive product. The nude shade is just perfect! I imagine this being paired with smokey eyes and sculpted cheeks, and bam! You look like a goddess! I just love it! It’s $37 which is quite pricey for a lipstick, but it lasts for up to 3 hours without touching up. It survived my morning coffee, 3 glasses of water, and a Zoom conference call. Worth it, if you ask me. Been wearing this everyday since I bought it, and I’m never looking back. This makes me want to try more of Charlotte Tilbury’s products.

TIKTOK #MAKEUPHACKS: FAKE BIGGER LIPS💋
There are SO many makeup hacks on Tiktok- and I wanted to try out a few~ The first hack I wanted to try was “faking big lips”! Step 1) Slightly over-line lips with a nude lip liner and don’t define cupids bow (just draw a straight horizontal line). KKW BEAUTY - Peach Lip Liners in Nude 1 I love this lipliner so much- it’s so creamy and easy to blend- the shade is also PERFECT for my lip color! Step 2) Fill in the rest of the lips with a lipstick. lisa eldridge - Velvet Fawn in Velvet Muse This lipstick is probably the best matte lip formula I’ve ever tried. It’s super creamy but has a soft-matte finish that can be sheered out for a stained look or piled on for more of a full-on look. Step 3) Use a brow pencil to fill in the corners of the upper lip, draw a thin line above the cupids bow and below middle of bottom lip. benefit - Precisely, My Brow Pencil Waterproof Eyebrow Definer Weirdly, this was a great contour shade for my lips! And this brow pencil blended into the lipstick easily. Step 4) Add a gloss to the cupids bow, and down the center of top & bottom lips. NUDESTIX - Magnetic Nude Glimmer Highlighter I love this gloss- it’s so shiny and adds a tint of color! There is a slight minty feeling that fades after 5 mins. Step 5) Smile! I loved this makeup hack! I’ve definitely seen similar tricks before but the eyebrow pencil was mindblowing! It’s a great shade for contouring my lips without having to buy a separate lip pencil! My lips definitely looked much bigger after trying this technique and I would probably do it again (but only for a photoshoot or for specific makeup looks- it’s not an “everyday” look for me)! Would you try this Tiktok makeup hack?
