1) Product (Beauty) GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm
I love the texture and it has really helped my skin maintain a subtle glow this fall/winter. Product (Makeup) GUCCI - Rouge à Lèvres Satin Lipstick
in Three Wise Girls. The slightly warm lipstick of my heart and soul. Gucci’s lipsticks have such complex color profiles they really are a joy to wear. A little fragranced but it fades fast. 2) Trend: I know I am behind the times but this is the year I discovered double cleansing and the difference has been dramatic. It has helped to keep my skin clear. Also a big fan of powdered Vitamin C! 3) Look: Navy sparkly eye (LORAC - PRO Palette Noir
PAT McGRATH LABS - Mattetrance Lipstick Celestial Divinity Collection
) 4) Favorite Creator on Cherie: @bealizbeauty for her constant and consistently good experimentation with different looks! 5) Something I learned: Listen to my skin and accept what it doesn’t like (regardless of how much I wish I could use a given product).

Product Mentioned
Fell In Love With An Eyeshadow Palette
Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer I fell asleep after taking these pictures and woke up with my eyeshadow perfectly intact! LORAC - PRO Palette Noir The shades are buttery soft, intensely pigmented and blend beautifully. Luxury quality at half the price. I can’t rec this palette enough. I even used a deeper blue color, which I have never ever done before and it turned out well. WANDER BEAUTY - Mile High Club Volume and Length Mascara Only Pat McGrath does it better. UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation in T1N. I gave myself a little more coverage today. It has a faint smell when first applied but sets beautifully and covers like a dream. I don’t even think you need a luminizer underneath. OFRA - #OFRAglow Signature Highlighting Palette I used Bali on my cheekbones and topped it with a bit of Star Island. Star Island is fine. Bali is gorgeous, creamy and easy to work with. It is worth the (sale) price of this palette all on its own. URBAN DECAY - Original All Nighter Setting Spray Ornament A nice product that set my makeup well without mattefying my foundation or highlighter and did not have a scent. PAT McGRATH LABS - Mattetrance Lipstick Celestial Divinity Collection in Amour. First of all this looks nothing like the website picture. Second it pulls a little warm on me. Third her matte lipsticks always scare me because they look so matte in the tube. However, I loved this color both in pictures and IRL and it is nowhere near as matte as it appears in the tube. It has a nice creaminess to it that made it so comfortable to wear. A fun birthday treat for myself. I am looking for a champagne eyeliner (vegan) to line my waterline with. Any recommendations? Thank you!!

The Palette VS The Look: Lorac NOIR Pro Palette
I’ve gone through a lot of eyeshadows since I first started using makeup, everything from claire’s and dollar store shadows to full palettes from bougie brands like natasha denona and Pat McGrath. Because of everything I’ve used, I have lots of HG shadows and it’s hard to impress me enough to where I want to incorporate something new into my daily routine. However, after @cheriesent the LORAC - PRO Palette Noir to me (thank you so much!) and I swatched it, I was really excited and started using immediately. The shades are really creamy and there’s not a lot of fall out. There’s the bonus of vitamin E, shea, and cucumber extract incorporated within the shadows that give added benefits of antioxidants and healing ingredients to help with wrinkles and dryness, which I love in my makeup. They’re pigmented but not powdery or dry. Though there is some glitter fallout when you don’t use a primer, it’s not extreme and to be expected— it easily brushed away from under my eyes. I was shocked with the payoff from the palette as a whole, but especially the glitter shades. Glitter and shimmers can sometimes be chunky, but these weren’t. The glitters went on smooth, I applied them with my finger in this look and they covered exactly where I wanted to very easily. I used the light white shade in my inter corner, and a mix of the bronze shades on the center of my lid. To deepen my crease I used the camel color, and darkened the outer V with the chocolate brown The shades don’t seal over when I use them with my finger which is something I’ve had issues with in other palettes! They feel like new every time I keep using them, which is very soft and creamy though it’s not a cream shadow. You can see in the second image of the swatches of the glitter shades (which I did from lightest to darkest) how pigmented the glitter shades are, this is just one layer of payoff swatched with my finger with no flash. The mattes are standard creamy and buttery mattes, they’re great for a simple daytime look and deepening the crease, as well as smoking out the under eye. I’m really excited about this palette, and can see myself traveling endlessly with it as it’s perfect for endless neutral glam looks which are my go-to. The shades pack a punch and the packaging is slim and chic, as well as REUSABLE to create less waste, so you can customize and refill with your favorite shades. What more could you want?

Sensitive/oily acne-prone skin journey
I recently turned 40, and about a year ago I started working on helping my aging acne-prone skin. I really improved using sunscreen and started using treatments like retinol. Have had some red irritated skin, when I’m not careful but slowly improving. GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm Started double cleansing at night, love the texture and it doesn’t break me out! KORRES - Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser So gentle yet perfect cleanser for me. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner This is a Holy Grail moisturizing toner! Hydrates and is so gentle! EMINENCE - Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum Moisturizes and helps breakouts. EMINENCE - Clear Skin Probiotic Moisturizer So moisturizing and calming. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 PA +++ First sunscreen I’ve found that didn’t break me out or irritate my skin. Rotating Treatments PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator Helps my acne prone skin but doesn’t irritate. Using a couple times a week. Marie Veronique Gentle Retinol Night serum- Love this! Expensive but I haven’t found a dupe yet. ACNE FREE - Adapalene Gel USP 15G I use this once a week but have to be super careful. facetheory - PoreBright Serum N10 Helps oiliness and brightens skin. THE inkey LIST - 15% Vitamin C and EGF Fist vitamin C serum that didn’t irritate my skin or break me out.

👩‍🔬My Tretinoin Journey ~ 8 Weeks in
Hi all! I started tretinoin / retin-a about 8 weeks ago for the first time. I got my prescription from Curology specifically seeking tretinoin, which I told my doctor so he would be sure to prescribe it to me! Always tell them if you’re looking for a specific ingredient! 👩‍🔬What is tretinoin/Retin-A?  Tretinoin is a Retinoid; retinoids are derivatives of Vitamin A (retinol, retinaldehyde, retinal, isotretinoin, adapalene are others.) Tretinoin’s intended and approved use is for acne, as it was created for acne treatment, but it is very often prescribed for anti aging and skin texture because through the decades of research, doctors found it was great for reducing wrinkles and large pores and repairing sun damage. Tretinoin increases cell turnover and exfoliates the top layers of our skin Decreases the shedding of dead skin cells into our pores + decreases inflammation It works much more deeply and much more effectively than its non-prescription counterparts, such as regular retinol Although strengths cannot be compared across the board, it has been observed that retinol is roughly 20 times less potent than tretinoin Decades of research confirm tretinoin as the holy grail, “gold-standard” in topical treatments for fighting acne + clogged pores, as well as smoothing out fine lines + wrinkles, reducing pigmentation from damage, and evening the skin texture 🙋‍♀️Who should use tretinoin? Tretinoin is suitable for most people; the only people who should be wary of it are those who have extremely sensitive skin, rosacea ❌Do not use tretinoin or any retinoids when pregnant or breastfeeding!❌ Dermatologists say that tretinoin is a great option for comedonal acne since it exfoliates + prevents plugging of the pores 💊Using/starting Tretinoin - tips from me + my dermatologist I’d recommend starting with tretinoin in a lotion/cream formula as it tends to be less harsh than the gel due to having soothing ingredients included in the formula. Curology has a cream formula that I absolutely love LOW + SLOW : start with a low dose (ask your doctor and give them your history) + go slowly with use. My derm recommended starting M W F of each week but do it less if you are experiencing too much irritation always follow instructions + advice from your dermatologist. With curology, I am able to send my provider messages and pictures with concerns and requests Simplify your routine! I did cut back to hydrating cleanser(s), hydrating toner or essence, thick moisturizer, my curology formula, + an oil on top to lock it all in. As your skin accustoms you will be able to slowly work those treatment products back in SPF ALWAYS🌞 I started tretinoin at 0.005% and upped to 0.01% after one month and I am seeing smoother skin and smaller pores, with very little purging. Pictures are from ordered from oldest to new except the first which compares starting with 8 weeks. XOXO GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm stratia - Velvet Cleansing Milk FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Wild Oat Hydrating Toner MIZON - Original Skin Energy, Peptide 500 PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum dear, klairs - Midnight Blue Calming Cream FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream Safe for Sensitive Skin HERBIVORE - Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s red lipstick!
TULA SKINCARE - Smoothing Primer Gel CLINIQUE - Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation CN10 tarte - Shape Tape Concealer in 16N Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer I finally bought a new container! ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Jackie Aina Eyeshadow Palette I love the colors and the intensity of them but the fallout of ‘Big Wig’, the only matte I used, was really heavy. The shimmers and glitters are great however and the colors suit a wide range of skin tones. COVER FX - Dewy Finish Setting Spray Gives me a glow but I think I prefer Urban Decay All-Nighter setting spray. PAT McGRATH LABS - Dark Star Volumizing Mascara HG OG DIOR - BACKSTAGE Glow Face Palette in Rose Gold. Love the glow this gives me and the softness of the color. Builds really beautifully. GUCCI - Rouge à Lèvres Satin Lipstick in Three Wise Girls topped with COLOURPOP - Lux Lip Gloss in Renaissance. I love both these products. The lipstick has a little bit of a smell that dissipates quickly and the gloss is great for topping many a lipstick. A friend and I both decided to use the Jackie Aina palette to create a look. It was a fun thing to do as the weather and COVID limits my outside time. Tell me if you are interested in doing something similar!

TULA SKINCARE - Smoothing Primer Gel CLINIQUE - Even Better Glow Light Reflecting Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Foundation in CN 10. Gave me a blemish cause I left it on all day. Bad BB cream, no cookie. OTOH, it makes me glow without any other product needed so.... Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer PAT McGRATH LABS - Blitz Astral Quad Eyeshadow Palette - Iconic Illumination it applied so smoothly, didn’t tug or pill, became opaque quickly and gave my whole face a glow. I love these little palettes. WANDER BEAUTY - Mile High Club Volume and Length Mascara irritates my eyes: COLOURPOP - Colourpop Pressed Powder Blush in On The Horizon. Really Pigmented. The overspray is annoying but the color is great. GUCCI - Rouge à Lèvres Satin Lipstick i Three Wise Girls. Holy Grail Red Lipstick. Best colors in the lipstick game. Treat yourself! COVER FX - Dewy Finish Setting Spray A really fine mist. NO SCENT. Set everything for hours. I have found my setting spray!!!! I really liked this look and the glow that I got from various products. I would rec everything except the mascara. Information on The National Day of Mourning: http://www.uaine.org/

The FACE HALO - Pro Set Of Three Makeup Remover Pads is a great product. I use every time I remove my makeup to prevent me from using too much product and stripping my skin. The company was kind enough to send it to me last year. They also sent me the accessories pack. With the FaceHalo Pro, you are supposed to be able to remove heavier makeup than the FACE HALO - Set of Three Makeup Remover Pads with just water, but I prefer to use it with a cleansing balm or oil and follow up with a second cleanser. The “HaloTech” fibers remove makeup easier and faster than makeup wipes, wash clothes, cleansing brushes or just using your hands. The reason I had to knock off a star was because it does remove more of my makeup with a cleansing oil. It comes with three of the circular cloths, each of which is supposedly good up to 200 washes. (They are machine washable.) I do have the original FaceHalo, which are white, but I love to use those to remove masks. (I am afraid my makeup will stain the cloth. Why risk it? 🤷🏾‍♀️) I did ask them to consider doing assorted Pro/OG packs so you could get 2 Pros/1 OG or 1 Pro/2 OGs. I recommend it for those of us that want to reduce waste and throw away your makeup wipes. You can also send your FHs back to the company and they will recycle it for you. What use is going clean if you are still clogging up our landfills with face wipes? Cost 😇 $22 for both Pro and OG packs, respectively. Where you can buy it? 🔍 FaceHalo.com 🔍 Other places overseas Bonus: Free shipping in the US and UK.

@cloveandhallow and @inspreebrands kindly gifted me these three makeup beauties to review for you! 🌸 The foundation was so surprisingly a great match for me (#4), it felt like nothing on the skin, had a good medium coverage and mixed with my Sunday Riley Juno, looked dewy. I had some friends warn me that it’s matte so I jumped the gun and added oil! It’s a beautiful combo ❤️ Although the pans fell out of the palette, I love this eyeshadow palette. It so perfect for effortless looks on the go for natural but pretty eyes. I particularly like the shimmery pink all over the lid for a pearlescent look! ✨✨ The cleansing balm is gorgeous, it has no scent and working like a charm!! Couldn’t ask for more from the most beautiful jar ever ✨

The Best All-in-One Makeup Palettes You Must Have!
The Best All-in-One Makeup Palettes You Must Have!
Do you often have such trouble? I need to go out, but I am afraid to take shadow, eyeliner, eye shadow, highlighter concealer and a series of cosmetics. I used to be very whimsical and thought it would be nice to have a eyeshadow that would do the make-up. Today I'm going to recommend the COLOURPOP - Going Coconuts, which is mostly brown and pink and has different shades like light brown, dark brown, matte pink, champagne gold and so on. You can buy this for less than $20. I'm going to show you how to use it. First of all on the picture I've labeled each color. First of all, A is nude color, which can be used as a base for our eyes, and B is silver sequin, which can be used as finishing touch for our eye shadow. C is brown which is similar to a shade of MAC. It is very good to use a brush to make our nose more plump or to draw the shadow of our cheekbones .D is light brown and can be used as our eyeliner or eye shadow base. E and G can be used for highlights and blush, or for darker and lighter eye shadow contrast. I, H and F can be chosen for different makeup effects according to different skin tones.

I play it pretty safe with eye shadow. Don’t get me wrong, I love binge watching colourful eye shadow looks but I just don’t have the confidence to recreate it and rock the look. This eyeshadow palette has a mix of shimmer and mattes in a variety of neutral colours. You have enough shades for a variety of neutral looks. This is the palette I pack on vacation with me. For reference, I’m oily and acne prone. #Too Faced - Natural Eyes Eyeshadow Palette[products]#[FourStars]

If you 🤢😢 at the caption, you might want these. They are Boscia’s blotting linens (holiday edition!) and they have me feeling all kinds of empowered. boscia - Yes, She Can Holiday Blotting Linens *product gifted but opinion my own They are formulated with peppermint (and smell like it!) and refresh + mattify skin. I like to use these after directly applying makeup, to blot away the shine. I also keep them in my bag for when my nose gets too shiny throughout the day. There is a 100 sheets in one, which lasts me a WHILE (I have been on my current pack for the last two months, with everyday use). TBH, I’d spend the $7 for the wonderful packaging alone (and it made for some great gifts for my girlfriends). If you’re looking for a stocking stuffer or a way to control oil for yourself, I highly recommend these blotting linens 💗
