Makeup-No Makeup w chubby sticks- quick & easy☀️
I’m all about “makeup-no makeup days” considering that I’m a student who is always on the go. These three products have been my major staples because they’re fast and super easy. I unintentionally chose stick products. I’ve come to realize that I enjoy them so much because I can fit them into a small pouch without needing any brushes, etc and they’re perfect for times when you’re running late because you’ve slept 5 hours the night before. Really, you just glide’em right on. 🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃🍃 CLINIQUE - Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm
Very pigmented but diffuses quite well; buildable.

Tower 28 glossy CHEEK balm + Mineral Foundation
Hi there! I have sensitive skin thus I am careful about what I put on it but like, I still like to look good 😆 ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼I wanted a foundation/bb/cc cream that is made up of clean ingredients + gives optimal results...'cause like, why buy makeup that’s clean if it doesn’t even look good? ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼I am slowly transitioning into clean 🌿products so here goes nothing. I stumbled across Lily Lolo- a UK makeup brand- after searching the internet for a good, clean foundation. It had really good reviews! Nordstrom was selling the foundation but they didn’t have my shade so I decided to order my products from Credo Beauty. Tower 28 was another product I saw on there and had seen on Instagram for quite a while. 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻 REVIEW: LILY LOLO - Mineral Foundation 4 ingredient loose mineral foundation (0.35 oz) I am not a powder foundation/powder anything type of person but I really like this foundation. I wear it on top of my elta md SKINCARE - UV Physical Broad-Spectrum SPF 41 (feels more like a tinted moisturizer) which i use as a bb cream and it's perfect. In my opinion, it is: ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Light-medium coverage (buildable) w/o the cakey effect ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼ Lightweight- feels like you're wearing nothing ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Looks so smooth ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Affordable ($22) Tip: I used the BareMinerals website (comment if you'd like to know how ) to find my shade if you don’t want to buy samples of the foundation. It worked for me LILY LOLO - Mineral Finishing Powder Supposed to give you a smooth, luminous feel. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼It made my skin feel super smooth (a 4/5) but I think it doesn’t fully deliver luminousity/radiance all the way (a 2/5). Don't get me wrong, it doesn't make you look dull at all. I think that I just expected more from it. TOWER 28 - SuperDew Highlighter Balm I like it but I don't love it. It is supposed to give you a glassy, highlighter type of look without the glitter and sparkles but I think it resembles the product in a transluscent EOS organic stick balm. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼It's not sticky or tacky in any way. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼It does give you a natural gloss which is kinda nice but nowhere near a glassy effect. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼It's cool if you're using it for a natural look with minimal coverage/"makeup— no makeup look" for a more dewy effect and for that, I will be using it since I like that look too. 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻 Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read this. If you have any questions or would like a more in depth review, let me know! Also, if you use any of these products, I’d like to know what your take was on them. Thanks!

The Two Lipsticks I Can’t Live Without
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to spend much time on touchups once I leave the house for the day, but long-wear lipstick formulas dry out my lips. While I still try new products and lip colors out here and there, I always come back to my two favorites. First up is Givenchy’s Le Rouge Perfecto #02. Le Rouge Perfecto #01 is their best seller, but my skin is darker so #01 is a bit too light for me. It’s silky smooth and moisture-rich so I don’t have to layer a lip balm. This lipstick is a splurge but it’s worth every penny. And if I’m going to invest in makeup it’s always on my foundation and lip color. What makes this lipstick really unique is that it reacts with your body chemistry and creates a custom color. For me, somedays it’s a vibrant pink while other days it’s a deeper pink. Whatever color it customizes to it always looks perfect. Le Rouge Perfecto lasts for hours without fading. I usually only have to reapply after I eat. I love to mix things up so when I’m not in the mood for a shade of pink I turn to Clinique’s #08 Graped-Up Chubby Stick. This color is a few shades deeper than my natural lip color giving me an elevated alternative to a nude lip. I have a few other shades of Chubby Stick but Graped-Up is my go-to. It’s more moisturizing than most lipsticks but I like to layer it over Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Moisturizing Lip Balm. I reapply my Chubby Stick every few hours but its chubby crayon-like design makes it super easy to apply anywhere. In the morning I use the NYX Dainty Daze lip liner before applying my lip color but throughout the day I just apply it solo.
I Only Say It Cause I’m Truly Genuine
CLINIQUE - Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes in Ample Amber. The color didn’t build well. Thinking of trying the purple because there is no such thing as a purple eyeshadow I won’t try, but this is a little too neutral for me. WANDER BEAUTY - Unlashed Volume & Curl Mascara I think this product might be called ‘unlashed’ because it makes your lashes disappear. I understand no makeup makeup but I don’t understand ‘no makeup makeup’ mascara. It’s undemocratic. What was Allure thinking? bareMinerals - Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 in Opal. It is not the kind of coverage I need right now with the breakouts from the PEACH & LILY - Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser which has broken me out so badly. It is also too...shiny and summery. I am buying UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation this weekend because it is better coverage. tarte - Shape Tape Concealer in 16N. Really great coverage but the texture clashes with the BareMinerals. Hoping tarte + UOMA is a better match. The color match is great though. OFRA - OFRA Highlighter I have become disillusioned with Rodeo Drive. I don’t know if it is old and needs to be replaced or I need to use a different highlighter under bronzer. Too Faced - Chocolate Matte Soleil Bronzer in Milk Chocolate. I need to figure out a better brush for this bronzer. Suggestions welcome. Has an initial faint chocolate scent that dissipates quickly. Lasts but does, eventually settle into pores. Another reason to switch to foundation. FENTY BEAUTY - Glossy Posse Mini Gloss Bomb Set in Ruby Milk. Great color in the tube but not intense enough for me when wearing. Very comfortable to wear, subtle scent that dissipates quickly. Easy to apply. If you like a more neutral lip, this would be a good holiday present for you or a friend. Title from Lauryn Hill. Hope you like the post on creating a 15 makeup look! What products do you do use when you are in a hurry?
You Slept Late And Have An *In Person* Meeting!
Step One: Don’t forget that you stashed an emergency mask in your purse. Step Two: You Don’t Have Time For A Shower. Brush your teeth, wash your face, wear a scarf. Step Three: The Five Minute Make-Up Routine that will have you look has rested as a rose. Are roses rested? I was mainly going for alliteration there. Eyes: CLINIQUE - Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes in Amble Amber. Okay, whoever names these does a terrible job but I firmly believe that this line of no primer needed eyeshadow sticks is Clinique’s best product with a range of neutrals for many skin tones. ILIA - Limitless Lash Mascara Who did Ilia bribe to get the buzz they have gotten for this product? I poked myself at n the eye four times with the wand. I haven’t done that since The Terminator was governor of California. Ridiculous. Returning it this week. Pat McGrath, I’ll never leave you again! PS I seem to be allergic to it. bareMinerals - Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 in Opal Good buildable coverage. Stays put once it dries down. Gives me a nice glow. I am almost at empty! Yay me! I love how it makes me look so refreshed and like I am not wearing makeup. erborian - BB Crayon Concealer & Touch-Up Stick in Clair. Getting a new under eye concealer this week. Any thoughts? CHANTECAILLE - Philanthropy Cheek Shade in Emotion. The product is hard to get out of the pan but it has a great texture. MAKE UP FOR EVER - Mist & Fix Hydrating Setting Spray Smells awfu, works well. No lipstick because we are venturing into the world of masks! Good luck at your meeting with your boss’s boss!
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush
I have typically oily skin that occasionally breaks out or gets dry spots. I have a light skin tone with neutral undertones and have acne scars along the sides of my cheek. This powder blush contains Amazonian clay, which Tarte claims helps to control oils and infuse moisture for balanced skin and seamless blending, along with helping the pigment look freshly applied all day. This is the shade blissful, which is described as a bright rose. I first got a Tarte blush from Sephora in a birthday set a couple years back. I also have a full size blush that was a Diamond Perk from Ulta and a couple mini size blushes from Sephora Favorite sets. I used up a mini of these in a different shade and it literally lasted me over a year of consistent every day use 😱 these suckers are so pigmented and you barely need to tap your brush in to get enough for a cheek. These are so pretty and give the nicest flush that looks so natural. I am so impressed by how they wear because they last the whole day and wear away naturally and slowly. It’s easy to use and hard to go overboard and look like a clown. These are own of my favorite blush formulas and really enjoy them! I would recommend this to those that enjoy a long lasting blush and offers a variety of colors to suit any need/look (there’s 14 shades available at Sephora). These are definitely worth the price because they last forever and I’ve seen them go on sale at Ulta during their 21 Days of Beauty event they have every few months. They are also worth the time/effort because they take no time to use, you jsut dip your brush in once and you’re good to go for each cheek! tarte - Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush Price: $15 for mini size (one color only on Sephora and doesn’t specify size); $29 for full size (0.2 oz/ 5.6 g) Rating: 5/5

Acne friendly concealer
This concealer is so great! It works great on acne prone skin-it helps to cover spots without looking cakey or dry. It has a nice smooth texture and blends out really easily. I love the consistency. It looks great under the eyes and all over the face! I’d definitely recommend it. REVLON - Photoready Candid Antioxidant Concealer

E.l.f Halo Glow Powder MEH
This is a recent launch from e.l.f that I truly thought would be a hit! Here's the thing, I don't know where the "glow" is in this powder. I have dry/normal skin and saw no shimmer, no hydration, nothin but powder. It's just an ok powder. Not too finely milled so it's not as silky as possible. Not wowing me! The shade light is definitely good for fair skin. Would I repurchase? Nope! I've had better formulas at the drugstore.
Colourpop Haul - Flexitarian 🌟
SHINE BRIGHT LIKE A DIAMOND! A while back I posted in one of the many makeup groups I’m in asking for people’s HG highlighters that give a ‘Wet Look’. COLOURPOP - Super Shock Highlighter was the most popular response. When my haul was delivered I could not WAIT to get my hands on this little baby. I immediately pulled it out and swatched it and I am IN. LOVE. The texture is SOOOO buttery and smooth and that is exactly what I look for in any powder product such as an eyeshadow or highlight. This is probably the best texture I have felt in any of my products yet (I really have a thing for texture lol). But, texture aside, this little highlight really packs a PUNCH in the form of high-shine!! It’s absolutely gorgeous. I wanted something that would show up in photos when I take selfies because I love love love seeing women’s selfies with a blinding highlight. Anyways, if I could give this product 10/10 stars I would. #CherieCreator 5/5 ⭐️‘S it is! 😍😍😍😍😍
COLOURPOP- Super Shock Highlighter
Simple Summer Look from Ulta
Quick warning: I’m terrible at taking selfies. And regular pictures. 🤷🏽♀️ So all of these except the Dew You are new. I bought them at Ulta today and immediately put them on in my car. These are my first impressions, and Dew You is still pretty new, so I’ll review that too. Too Faced - Tutti Frutti Dew You Fresh Glow Luminous Face Primer This is a great stand-alone face product! I’ve also worn it under makeup, but I love it as-is as well. It makes my skin glowy, like an all-over highlighter. And it smells like watermelon. 🍉 my only complaint is it makes my face feel a leeeeeetle greasy. I wouldn’t recommend this for those with oily skin. NYX - Born to Glow Radiant Concealer I spotted this on my way up to the register because I was feeling self-conscious about my under eye lines. I had trouble deciding between this shade (7 - Natural) and one shade darker (7.5 - Soft Beige), but after blending it, I think I made the right choice. I like the sponge applicator, but I could be more frugal with how much product I use in the future. Lano - Rose Gold 101 Ointment Lip & Cheek Tint Another “on my way to the register” pick up. I was a little nervous to try this shade because it looks red on the package, but it actually turned out perfect. I love the deep pink on my skin, and I’m glad I didn’t get the Baby Rose Gold one. I put this on my cheeks and lips, and it feels kind of like a balm. But for my dry skin, this doesn’t bother me. Definitely not sticky. L'ORÉAL - Telescopic Original Washable Mascara I got this mascara at the recommendation of a girl I went to high school with whose lashes are the longest I’ve ever seen. She has been wearing this since high school, when her eyelashes were just as noticeable. That’s product loyalty! It was a little tricky to put on because I kept blinking on the right eye and it would smear on my top lid, but I obviously stopped blinking lol. The formula is really smooth and the applicator is very thin with short bristles. I have more of a natural curl to my lashes than my friend, so it looks different on both of us, but I’m very happy with how long my lashes are! If I wanted more volume, I’d apply additional coats or use another mascara under it.

Complexion Palette: Charlotte Tilbury vs. Benefit
Charlotte Tilbury Gorgeous，glowing beauty Charlotte Tilbury - Instant Look in a Face & Eye Palette Highlighter are always what Charlotte Tilbury's famous for. The highlighter in this palette is just beautiful. The texture is micro powdery that can perfectly help in hiding pores. 😍The other shades are also very useful. There are a bronzer, two blushes, three eyeshadows and one highlighters inside. One palette serves all. Great for makeup beginners. Also good for travelling. It's really convenient. 👍 Benefit get the pretty started palette I bought this years ago. Sadly this palette is discontinued. 😥 I really like it a lot. All the three shades are useful. There are bronzer hoola, blush galifornia and highlighter cream watt's up. Galifornia is shimmery pink. It's super pigmented, so don't use too much and it needs to be blended very well. Watt's up has a creamy texture, the shade is kind of like campaign. I think highlighter cream is better to apply before foundations, so as long as the coverage is not that high, the glow of the highlighter can still be seen through the foundation. ✨In this way, you just don't need difficult techniques to create a natural, beautiful finish with highlighters. Friendly for makeup starters.
