A Bold Lip: Quelle Surprise!
CLINIQUE - Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation I know this is a pretty controversial product on Cherie but it suits my dry skin pretty well. It takes time to set and the coverage could be better but it applies easily with my fingers and does not get oily. Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer I am not a fan of this brand’s gender essentialism or appropriation of AAVE but this product is the best primer on the market. However, if you know of a good eyeshadow primer (not UD) I would like stop giving this brand my money. LORAC - PRO Palette Soleil The shimmers are so good. They apply well and layer easily and are creamy and pigmented. I love the shimmers and glitters. The mattes exist. I guess. I don’t plan to ever try them. PAT McGRATH LABS - Dark Star Volumizing Mascara OG HG Rare Beauty - Stay Vulnerable Melting Cream Blush I looooove this product. It applies easily with my fingers and gave me the perfect hint of color. It has a nice slippy texture that helps it apply very easily. Some have said this is too sheer and doesn’t build well but I struggle with the pigmentation of most blushes because of how fair I am. This blush is the blush I have been looking for all my life. It applies well and then sheers out easily in the first layer giving me the perfect glow. I took a point off for the scent which took about a half hour to dissipate. BOBBI BROWN - Crushed Liquid Lipstick I, as you know, love this line. It applies well and evenly. The product is scent free. The it has a little slip but just enough to be comfortable not enough to be gloopy. It is very comfortable to wear and I love the two colors I own.
Make-Up Self-Care (featuring a berry nice gloss)
UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation T1N. I think it might be time to replace this foundation soon. It will be buying a new bottle of the same product though. I love the product and the coverage and it is easy to apply with my fingers. #Viseart - Petit Fours[products]#[FourStars] in Lilas. So easy to apply and so wonderfully creamy. It photographs well and layered easily. It could be more pigmented but I was more than happy with this introduction to the brand. Glad I asked for it for Christmas. COLOURPOP - Colourpop Pressed Powder Blush On The Horizon. Very Pigmented and a little difficult to blend. It had a scent that took a good hour to dissipate. I will use it but I will not buy any more Colourpop blushes. HOURGLASS - Unlocked Instant Extensions Mascara (GWP) clumpy and hard to apply and just kind of a pain. Not a fan. Also seemed to be perfumed though the scent disappeared quickly. BOBBI BROWN - Crushed Liquid Lipstick in Bitter Sweet. This formula is comfortable. The application dispensers just the right amount of product and gives good control when applying. The shine is just right and the color is really dimensional and gorgeous. I bought this for my birthday and it is a struggle not to buy all of them.

Mwah!! XO My favorite lip glosses and lip stains
1. BURT’S BEES - Tinted Lip Oil My favorite everyday gloss! Hydrating. Natural looking. Comes in a pen with a brush applicator. I’m wearing Carmel Cloud here. 2. HONEST - Honest Beauty Tinted Lip Balm This one is also a good hydrating gloss. More of a sheer wash. Less glossy. Wearing Fruit Punch here. 3. Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick Probably my least favorite in terms of hydration. But I love the Kool Aid stain color it gives. Wearing Jam here. 5. YVES SAINT LAURENT - Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lip Stain Most color. Feels satiny on lips. 6. BUXOM - Pillowpout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder I seriously love this stuff. It gives me just a little more definition and the color is like natural lip color amped up! Wearing Dolly here.
Generation G Looks Pretty Ggggood 👄
I love lipstick, but as someone who is always sipping, snacking and chewing gum, it can be a struggle to keep it on. That’s why I was excited to try Glossier’s Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick. It’s supposed to look sheer and a bit, um worn (? I couldn’t think of a better descriptive word!). I chose the lipstick in the shade Zip, which is a pretty poppy red. I always love this sort of orangey red shade because it makes my eyes look crazy blue. The lipstick does what it says it will do. It provides a sheer wash of color that is buildable. I love the way it looks. It also wears off in a nice, not too noticeable way. I’m giving it four out of five stars only because it’s a little uncomfortable to wear. If you have dry lips it will not feel nice. Honestly, if half stars were possible, I’d give this 4.5, but all in all, I’m a fan! I’m probably going to buy another shade or two. Which do you recommend? Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick

KOSAS The Wet Set
Kosas - The Wet Set Kosas - Wet Lip Oil Gloss So with this set I really like the product, this is a very good lip oil and the pigment stays even when it feels like the gloss is wearing off. This set came with the shades Jellyfish, Dip, and Jaws (swatched in that order from top to bottom) and they’re all so pretty! I tried the shade Malibu like a year ago but it was toooooo bubblegum pink and I gave it away to my mom. Jellyfish is a clear gloss, Dip is a pearly neutral nude, and Jaws is a warm red. My favorite by far is Jaws because I’m a red lip person. My only issue with this set is how small the tubes are. There isn’t a whole lot of product in here, and while it’s really good for testing out a few colors, it may not be worth $25. I dunno, I’m enjoying them and will probably end up buying the regular size of Jaws.
Kosas - Keep It Clean Clean Volumizing Mascara and Hydrating Lip Set Got this from sephore sale for $24! I really want to try the lip oil but i dont like it like fr i cant even get a product from the tube! The applicator is very small and not much product, they focused More on the packaging of it instead whats inside. Its good i didnt buy the gloss itself and just bought this set. Kosas - Wet Lip Oil Gloss OMG this is the best lip balm ive ever used! Its mentholy, minty and hydrating! Idk but its more buttery that really nourishes the lip and the shape of it is different too! Kosas - Port LipFuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm I want to try this mascara too! Looks interesting! Kosas - The Big Clean Volumizing + Lash Care Mascara

Glossier Lip Gloss VS. Kosas Wet Lip Oil Gloss
Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss $14, 3.5ml - 3 shades - thick formula - feels sticky - dries out my lips Kosas - Wet Lip Oil Gloss $27, 4.6 - 5 shades - thin formula - feels slippery & smooth - moisturizing My Choice: To me, Kosas wins by far! It’s so much more comfortable to wear and it doesn’t dry out my lips! In fact, it actually keeps my lips moisturized and feeling soft. I can build it up by adding several layers if I’m looking for an uber glossy look, and it still never feels too thick and heavy! I’m definitely contemplating picking up a few more shades!!! 🤔 The Glossier Lip Gloss looks amazing in photos just because of how reflective and thick it is on the lips, but it feels way too sticky and heavy. It also ends up drying out my lips if I wear it for too long.

Kosas - Weightless Lip Color This lipstick was gifted to me by Kosas and I really love it. This is one of the two shades I received and this one fits me the most I believe, the other one was a little bit too pink. This is darker and in a more reddish tone. It’s really lightweight, feels like you have nothing on like it claims. And it’s still not sheer, still has a powerful color, although you can kind of decide that on how thick of a layer you want to go with. It lasts for a few hours as well!!! All in all it’s super smooth and goes on the lips like a dream. I’m a fan of the matte and square packaging too! Love this shade and this lipstick. Something extra is that the top is magnetic so it clicks so effortlessly! I definitely recommend this lipstick and find it not too pricey!

BITE BEAUTY FRENCH PRESS LIP GLOSS
BITE - French Press Lip Gloss Look. At. That. Shine. Oh. And. That. Pigment. The Bite Beauty French Press Lip Glosses. And they smell like coffee. One of the stand out products from Bite are these glosses- but I think they’re discontinued now! They add so much pigment and so much gloss that my lips always looks so saturated and plump when I have it on! They’re a teensy bit sticky, but I don’t mind it because they just add so much glossy volume to my lips! This shade doubles up as a glossy stain for me because besides applying it all over my lips, I also like to dab a few dots on the center of my lips and blotting it around with my finger. It just distributes the perfect amount of color and shine and isn’t obnoxious.

TOWER28 LIP GLOSS SWATCH
This is the Tower28 beauty Shine On Lip Jelly. This lip gloss formula is incredibly lightweight and comfortable without any stickiness. It does have a light fragrance. This shade, Fearless, looks like an intimidating purple in the tube but is very sheer and just deepens the lips ever so slightly. I love their formula and will totally purchase another if they release a nude or light pink. TOWER 28 - ShineOn Jelly Lip Gloss

Glossier’s Generation Z Lipstick
I rarely wear bold lip colors. But when I do, I really only opt for sheer tinted balms or try to keep it simple and will blot the s**t out of it so it’s not too bold. Wanting to switch it up but still keep it minimal, I found Glossier’s Generation G lipstick and fell in love with the shade Crush, which is described as a hot raspberry pink. The formula is designed to be a sheer matte and dialed down, making the color adapts to your natural lip color and appear diffused. The one thing about this lipstick that I’ve noticed that you really have to work for it lol - sometimes it feels like I have to apply 100 coats in order to get the color I want. It’s buildable, which I love, but the formula doesn’t necessarily glide and apply effortlessly. Sometimes it feels like I’m rubbing a crayon against my lips, especially if I didn’t apply a balm beforehand. Glossier. - Boy Brow + Generation G Duo

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
