Fall Lip Staple 🍂📌
Fall Lip Staple 🍂📌
This product came with my August Ipsy Bag, and is my absolute favourite!!! This bold, matte nude lip works for both my natural & classy looks. This product has quickly become a staple in my everyday makeup. KISS & SMINK - Matte Creme Lip Crayon Even though it dries down matte, their cream formula is moisturizing – preventing chapped lips and flaking. This slim crayon packaging gives you total control for super-precise application. The shade is PERFECT and even better for the fall season. PLUS this has even more product than some “full-size” products. I absolutely love it. I will be getting another one and hope to try other shades!!

Charcoal is one of my favourite things. In soaps, cleansers, and masks, charcoal products NEVER fail to make my skin feel fresh and new. The elasticity of my skin after using charcoal products is always magnificent - feeling like a new woman. 😂 This product was no different! I received a small sample size with my August Ipsy Bag, and I’m definitely going to purchase a full size version to treat myself soon.

I’M FREAKING OUT!!!! I’ve been using The Ordinary products as a staple in my routine for the past month or so and it has TREMENDOUSLY changed my skin for the better. ✨ Full disclaimer: I am wearing my daily makeup in this photo and plan to take another one tonight without makeup. ———— I have combination skin (more on the oily side, with dry patches), and I’ve seen all areas improve since starting my new skincare regimen. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% My Intended Uses: Pores, Blemishes When I Use It: I’ve been using this product every morning after cleansing, before primer. I’ve been super stressed and not eating the best, but this product has been keeping my acne under control and is consistently working on clearing up those problem areas. I don’t use this product the same time as the Ascorbic Acid because of conflicting acids (refers to other posts for details). ______ The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution My Intended Uses: Complextion/Tone, Irregularities When I Use It: I use this no more than once a day (in the PM) as recommended, after cleansing. I use a very small amount on a reusable cotton pad - making a little product cover my whole face. I think I may experiment with every-other-day application of this product, as my face is usually a bit drying in the fall. ______ The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% My Intended Uses: Dark Spots, Tone, Aging When I Use It: I’ve been using this product every night after the The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution & Cherie is seeing the difference!! This product is under The Ordinary’s Vitamin C Collection and always makes me feel nice and hydrated after toner. I don’t use the same time as The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% because of conflicting acids. ______ I’ve forgotten application the odd day for each product, but application has been pretty consistent on a daily basis. Have you seen any new improvement/problems areas for you lately? Let’s chat below 💭

The best tinted moisturizer I’ve ever used!
The best tinted moisturizer I’ve ever used!
The Beauty Counter Dew Skin tinted moisturizer is the perfect product if you want a nice dewy finish and not a heavy makeup look. It’s so easy to apply, I just use my fingers! And a 1.35 fl oz. size runs about $45. It’s currently on sale on their website by the way! It’s very light coverage but I find it to do a good job of concealing light pigmentation and just make your face look more awake. I apply it right after I cleanse and apply my eye cream and serum. You can just use it as a replacement for your moisturizer during the day. I’ve been using it for about 3 months now and would definitely purchase it again! I’m almost out of my container anyways since I use it daily. It doesn’t have a harsh smell and is very blendable. I use about 2 pumps for the whole face. I find makeup to stay on over it pretty well and it does last almost all day, even in humid conditions. Hope this reviews helps if you’ve been on the market for a good tinted moisturizer! xx #Beauty Counter - Dew Skin[products]#[FiveStars]

Perfect skin on the pow wow trail ☀️
Perfect skin on the pow wow trail ☀️
Accepting myself as an Indigenous woman has been a hard and long journey. I was bullied through elementary school and still get racist comments online. Growing up, I used to hate my complexion. I'm now 25 years old and my home community has saved my life in so many ways. Being around thousands of other Cree women has taught me different beauty standards than stuff I see on Instagram. I'm never going to look like Kendall Jenner or Karlie Kloss, and that's ok. I'm beautiful in my own way and I get my features from a long line of strong women who have been walking on this land for at least 10 000 years. This platform also allowed me to recognize myself in so many of you, and for that I thank you all for showing your true self. This picture shows my beadwork for my pow wow regalia. I've beaded it all myself. Beadwork is a traditional craft for many Indigenous nations and a skill that has been passed down to me by nôhkom (my grandmother). I wear my regalia with pride when I dance, so the makeup has to match. I dance contemporary fancy shawl style and it is HARD (check it out on YouTube). Pow wows happen mostly in the summer so you sweat A LOT. For my complexion, I like to use products that are not going to make me super cakey right after the 1st song. I can tell you those 3 are powwow-proof and will stay on your face after dancing in 30°C temperature. tarte - Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 If you have an olive undertone like me, you probably know that finding a foundation that matches your skin is hell. I'm in the shade light-medium sand for most of the year. Often, I find that foundations with olive undertones are too dark and that there's never anything in the light-medium range, but their undertones in that line have been spot on. I will say that the same shade in the Shape Tape concealer is much more neutral. I have oily skin and this gives me a velvety semi-matte finish without making me dry or cakey. Love this, althought I use a small amount, so I cannot speak for the ones who are going for a full glam and full coverage look. I'd say it's more of a medium coverage. laura mercier - Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eyes I very lightly set my undereyes with this because it's not drying AF like the translucent one. It has a bit of a sheen to it so you don't look dead and dry, and so it doesn't darken your concealer too much wheb you set it. Beautiful finish. laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder I use a small amount of this one to set my t-zone. I use the amount that's left on my sponge or brush after to lightly set my face. DO NOT use too much because you will look as dry as the Sahara desert. I used to bake with this and I'd feel so uncomfortable. Happy that I've transitioned to a more natural makeup. Hope this helps ☺

I just bought another tube of this, here’s why
I just bought another tube of this, here’s why
BANGN BODY - Firming Lotion Face & Body Moisturiser The yellow tube of goodness or whatever they call it. The before and after photos will tell you it heals stretch marks, reduces cellulite and cures cancer (ok I made that last one up). A brightening, hydrating, firming, tightening miracle cream. Does it work? Obviously it works wonders for some but my first impression was that it was okay. I mostly just put in on my face at night. My skin still felt a bit tight after applying but once it sunk in I felt hydrated. In the morning skin was soft and looked nice. Good but nothing radical. Then I got a pimple. Like one of those diabolical, volcano, has-roots-going-down-your-neck type pimples. Can’t go outside or even zoom chat hideous thing. I could see it coming. The skin over the head was tight and sore and the redness surrounding it was bigger than a 50 cent piece (if you can even remember what money looks like these days). So I cleaned the area and used this cream as a spot treatment twice a day and then all over the face at night. And no matter how much I wanted to I DID NOT TOUCH IT. And... nothing. No eruption. No pea-sized whitehead. Even the redness went away. 3 days later and I realised that this yellow tube is actually my saviour! Since my enlightenment I have applied it to all kinds of pimples. Face pimples, back pimples, chest pimples. Those weird leg pimples. And all either disappeared in a few days or significantly reduced. So excuse me while I go and increase my order to five tubes.
