Playing around with some new products! GRWM
Hello! First I tried this Dear, Klairs cushion compact. #Dead, Klairs - Cushion Whenever[products]# Let’s just say I was not impressed. It felt super dry when it went on. It’s supposed to be a light weight, skin and portable cushion to use whenever. It has spf 50 which is pretty higher. This might be the reason it felt so drying. They only have 3 shades and they are all super light. It looked great when I was applying it on the video but my face felt uncomfortable. I’m so sad that I didn’t really like this product. I might give it a second try but the shade didn’t really match me. I see a lot of complaints about the shade range online. Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color

3 products I’m LOVING this week!!
I thought I’d step on here and give my 3 fav products as of right now! First up, elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 I actually had this product recommended to me from my dermatologist! And... it’s amazing. I got the tinted version but there is a untinted one as well. At first I was nervous about the tint but actually really really like it! It blends well with my skin tone and adds a dewy light weight finish that I also look for in a product. I don’t wear foundation, but this almost feels like one. It adds a nice layer of light coverage! Lastly, it is really really good for your skin! As it says on the container, it has niacinamide and some other great ingredients so “calms and protects acne prone skin” Next we have, MAYBELLINE - Cheek Heat Gel-Cream Blush This has been a huge mainstay in my makeup routine! I love a good cream blush and this lives up to all my expectations. It’s dewy, bouncy, glowy, and has a beautiful pigment. I have in the shade “coral ember” which is a beachy coral! This product is great over makeup or alone, (I use it alone) I would say that a little goes a long way! And, this is a great dupe for Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek ColorOverall cheek heat is a really great product! Last but certainly not least... ESTĒE LAUDER - Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Now this actually isn’t a very popular product however it works wonders for me!! It is a very gentle but very effective eye makeup remover. (I use on the rest of my face too!) This removes even waterproof mascara which is good for me! Maybe I’ll do a post on my fav mascaras in the future 😉. For me, this is much better than GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover which I found leaves my eyes oily and took out some of my lashes 😬. But with estee’s, I never woke up with leftover mascara in the morning so it is very very effective!! Thank you so so much for reading!! Let me know what you think of these product down below! 😁

A monochromatic feel never hurted anybody tourlou 🪐 worn Glossier. - Perfecting Skin Tint + Stretch Concealer Duo both in shade G11 FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick in amber to contour (I use it on the cheeks and nose mainly , because it gives more dimensions and helps not having too much warmth on the skin SOL BODY - Face & Body Bronzing Balm in shade fair (it is really the perfect shade for me to give the right amount of color) Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color in shade beam RIMMEL - Stay Matte Pressed Powder in shade transparent (all over the face,works amazingly) NYX - Ultimate Multi-Finish Shadow Palette in the array of colors Phoenix (I try doing something more warm using the Browns and mauves and pink,not mad about it) REVLON - Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in shade kisses( this formula is so good ,not transfer proof but very comfortable)
Glossier Cloud Paint
The color that I am wearing in that video is Dawn. It’s is an orangey/tint of red. Super cute cream blush. Pros: Easy to apply Buildable Apply with your fingers for a more natural and beautiful look. Cons: There are no cons; love this product. Overall the packaging is cute. Easy to work with. The finish is smooth and very natural. The pigment is beautiful. As you can tell in my video I blend this with my finger, and the after math is gorgeous with my skin tone. The only thing is that, you only get 0.33fl oz of product for $18(+tax) a little pricy for a blush. I’ll still buy more since this works so nicely on my skin. It also give me a nice glowy finish.

NYX- Bright Idea in CoaraliciousNYX - Bright Idea Illuminating Stick Smashbox- LA LIGHTS in Beverly Hills Blushsmashbox - L.A Lights Lip & Cheek Color Glossier- Haloscope in TopazGlossier. - Haloscope Dew Effect Highlighter I don’t even remember when it started happening but I have always been obsessed with laying and blending things to get the perfect tonality that I like for myself but I also do this with my clients models and actors as well. I start with my cream bronzy highlight, (Glossier Haloscope in Topaz). I swipe that on my cheek or I use a small “ glow brush’ to apply it to my face in circular motions until its blended in with the skin. I also like to apply this to my eye lids as a good base for whatever neutral/natural eye look I am doing that day. Then I go in with the more subtle blush color, ( Smashbox LA Lights in BH blush) and focus on my cheeks and tip of my nose. Again blending it in circular motions so it just melts into the skin. Last I go in with my brightest blush color (NYX Bright Idea in Coralicious) to further accentuate the apples of my cheek. This method always leaves such a natural and healthy glow, I feel like I can wear this with any eye or lip look because its just the right amount of color and glow in my cheekies and who doesn’t love that?

the cutest BLUSH! 💕
I am in love with thisKaja - Cheeky Stamp Blendable Blush and I can’t stop using it! I’ve always been a huge blush fan and I’ve tried so many different kinds from pressed powders, cream blushes, liquid blush, etc. So when I saw this HEART SHAPED STAMP BLUSH from Kaja on the Sephora website, I knew I had to try it out. It’s one of the most unique makeup products I’ve ever discovered and definitely the cutest blush I own. 💕 THE BLUSH 💕 This is a cushion blush with a sponge applicator in the shape of a heart! This product is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. 💕APPLICATION / HOW TO USE IT 💕 This blush comes with a twistable top that has the heart sponge applicator and a bottom pot with the blush cushion color. APPLICATION STEPS 1. Twist off the top (and admire how cute the heart is) 2. Open the bottom with the color 3. Press the top part with the heart sponge down into the cushion blush pot so it can absorb the color 4. Press it onto your cheeks! 5. You can then use your fingers to blend it into your skin and apply more for the desired color opacity! TIPS One stamp gives a nice natural flushed glow, two or more gives a brighter blush look. (Personally, I like to apply as much blush as possible before I get called out for looking like I spent too much time in the sun... but it’s to hide the fact that I haven’t really left my house to go outside in weeks anyways so it’s okay!) I like to press the sponge into the bottom a few times so it can absorb as much of the color from the cushion as possible 💕WHY I LOVE IT 💕 It’s one thing for a product to be cute, but I need it to work well too! Thankfully, this blush is both adorable and incredibly functional. It’s so creamy and pigmented and easily blendable and buildable! It’s also so nice to look at and fun to use, making my ritual of applying makeup even more exciting because it really is just so cute. Have you guys ever tried this product before? I would love to hear your thoughts! Or if anyone has any other recommendations for adorable makeup that just makes you smile and makes the process even more fun than it already is, please let me know because I am officially obsessed with finding ~cute~ products!

Rosy Blushing Cheeks with Glossier
I heard many great things about the Glossier products and wanted to try them out for myself (and I’m glad I did!). This Glossier Cloud Paint in Puff gives you the most radiant naturally flushed cheeks. I actually bought this blush cloud paint in the Covent Garden pop up store in London, but you can find this online via the Glossier website. It cost me less than £15 and would say I can see this lasting a long time so it’s worth the investment. It comes in a variety of different shades (6 in total!). I was trying to decide between this one and the Beam (a soft peach colour). Eventually, I went for the shade in Puff because the colour is a natural cool pink colour that makes you literally look like you’ve just blushed! If you have a somewhat olive skin tone like me, you’ll definitely suit this! The colour is super romantic and leaves your cheeks flushed with a healthy dewy glow. A little goes a long way - just one drop is enough to cover my entire cheeks! Some blush creams can double up as a lipstick, but I would say that this blush cream is only pigmented enough for the cheeks as opposed to the lips. I prefer blush creams to blush powders because it’s a lot less obvious! It’s super lightweight and glides on the skin really comfortably, perfect for those no-makeup makeup days! The Glossier product comes with a squeeze tube so is super easy and hygenic to apply. I add a dab onto my cheeks and blend it out with my fingers. It’s small and travel friendly! Just pop this into your bag and take on the go with you. Have you tried any Glossier products lately? What are some of your favourites?
Good or just MEH 😒....
LAQA & CO. - Preacher's Daughter Peach B'lighter 💲14 give or take....depends on where you find it. TRY IPSY!!!! Use my code: https://www.ipsy.com/gcyteoyi Item on judgment row, Company Claims..... This product is a cream highlighter, it has a very nice light pink shimmer to it. Swipe once for a sheer shimmer or add more and build for even more of a glow. Creamy texture makes blending beautiful and the formula melts into your skin. this product is paraben free talc free and gluten-free. MY EXPERIENCE 😒 First let’s talk packaging! 🤗❤️⭐️I absolutely adore this little compact that this cream highlighter comes in. To me it just looks so glamorous it’s got a nice metallic finish on top with a really cute design and when you open it up there’s even a little mirror on the inside which I love! ❤️❤️❤️ first time I used the cream highlighter I liked it but I didn’t love it. My personal opinion and preference is powdered highlighters I just feel like I have more control over blending and building on those then I do with cream highlighters or even cream blushes. I just overall prefer powder. It is a really creamy luxurious texture and it does give you a really soft peachy 🍑glow🌞. I can also see how other people who love cream highlighters or cream blushes would find it very simple to blend or build on. But this product just really isn’t for me personally I will not be re-purchasing. FINAL THOUGHT As far as recommending this to anybody....I definitely recommend it to those who love cream highlighters or cream blushes I’m sure you would absolutely adore this product but I do not recommend it for those who prefer powders. The only reason why I gave it three stars is because it is a meh 😒 product for me and for the price it’s just not going to stay in my make up box.
