YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE

Merry Multi-Masking Kit Ft. Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Honey Bear Hair Mask
the best defense against 2020
“An invisible broad-spectrum SPF 30 mineral sunscreen that is never greasy and works great under makeup. This daily skin shield also helps guard against environmental factors associated with skin aging.” performance | full star | really enjoyed this spf! Only thing is I personally didn’t like it under makeup, since it contains multiple dimethicone ingredients causing some pilling. Left a beautiful finish by itself, not too glowy, but also not matte & no white cast at all texture | full star | not greasy or heavy feeling, but thick enough to melt into the skin & doesn’t separate at all scent | full star | doesn’t have the strong sunscreen smell, no added fragrance packaging | .9 star | def have to cut open the tube to get all the product out. Clean packaging with minimal verbiage ingredients | .8 star | has a couple PEG, which I’m sus about leaving on the skin. Not a fan of dimethicone either value | full star | $36 for 1.7oz is average and I do really like using this on no makeup days. Also one of the only spf that my man will use Total 5.7 out of 6 stars ✨

I have yet to try a product I don’t like. ⠀ I have a few minis missing from the family pic & I just picked up their all natural deodorant that I have been LOVING. Can’t wait to purchase the rest of their products and have my collection complete (May take some time but I will get there) ⠀ ⠀ What’s your favorite Farmacy product?!

My Current Fave Brand 🤩
Have you tried Indie Lee? Moving into clean and credo beauty this brand has been on my radar for a long time! Thank you @cherie for these gifts 🤩 This brand is amazing! It only uses clean ingredients that aren’t toxic or harmful and you can tell! I got the INDIE LEE - Purifying Face Wash : this is so gentle and effective. My face feels clean and my acne has been to clear up so fast. When I tell you my skin was so hydrated after using I mean it INDIE LEE - I-Waken Eye Serum : this is perfect for puffy eyes and when you need that boost. It’s so gentle I got it in my eyes (don’t try it at home) and it didn’t burn at all! Its packed full of amazing ingredients and has definitely become my new staple in the am (since I treat my fine lines and dark circles at night!) Credo beauty has been my new directive and highly recommend all skincare enthusiasts to get into the trend! Have you tried this brand ?
Unfortunately this didn't work great for me! 🥺
I have dark circles and fine lines and I look for eye creams that target these concerns. Recently I won this Indie Lee I-Waken Eye Serum in Cherie Cheerleader prize!! INDIE LEE - I-Waken Eye Serum I'm glad to have put this to a test! I liked the liquidy thick serum consistency and the milky texture of this product. Unlike many other eye creams it's great for absorption in under eye area. I was expecting it to work amazing for me but sadly it did not! This is what the product details are: What it is: A hydrating, antioxidant-rich daily eye serum that addresses dark circles and puffiness, leaving skin with a refreshed and firmer appearance. Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily Skincare Concerns: Dark circles, Puffiness, Dryness Formulation: Serum Highlighted Ingredients: - Horse Chestnut, Mountain Ash Bud, and Witch Hazel: Address dark circles and puffiness. - Chamomile, Arnica, and Cornflower: Help soothe the delicate eye area. - Hyaluronic Acid: Helps to promote long-lasting hydration. 🍁 My Experience: I experienced it's great for people with puffiness and under eye bags. It slightly flattened my under eye area but for my major concerns like dark circles and fines lines this isn't working as effectively as my other favourite eye creams do. This certainly doesn't mean it won't help my concerns in the long run or it may brighten my under eye areas slightly if I use it consistently. With my other eye creams such as Nuria eye cream and The Ordinary Caffeine solution I see difference in my dark circles in just little than a week but I gave this more time than that to see if it works for my specific concerns and it did not do well. I will post an update of 5-6 weeks of use!
Milk Makeup Flash Review!
Milk MAKEUP - KUSH Lash Primer I really love this stuff! I wanna try it with mascara from the brand to see if it works even better combined because of it being the same brand but so far all the mascaras i’ve tried with it have worked great! it makes my lashes look longer, fuller and less clumpy than when i just use mascara! Milk MAKEUP - KUSH Fiber Brow Gel This brow gel is really good. I’m not really a huge fan of colored brow gels simple because i prefer to fill my brows in with a pencil and then fluff them out with a clear brow gel! that just works best for me. But my mom has been using it and it looks so great on her! Milk MAKEUP - KUSH Lip Glaze I don’t like this 😅 i hate the smell, the feel and honestly i’m not the biggest fan of the color (but that’s on me for choosing it lol!) I do like the tube and the applicator, it’s metal and makes the product glide on. i would never purchase this again unfortunately.
Glad I’m not Lactose Intolerant 💁🏼♀️
Hellooooo Milk Makeup! I can’t tell you guys how excited and in love I am with this stuff, it’s like they were all made for me! ⠀ ⠀ Matte Bronzer: I love. I love so much. It’s incredible value as this will last forever for a decent price. I was swiping it on my skim and blending out and then switch to going into the product with a brush then the skin and I honestly like both ways. It’s not for contouring as it’s quite warm, but it warms up the face for a sun kissed glow perfectly. It blends perfectly and isn’t super matte. It surprisingly works well over powder! And yes, it does smell like play dough Milk MAKEUP - Matte Bronzer ⠀ ⠀ Flex Foundation: I cannot stop using it. It glides onto the skin and melts and blends in really beautifully with a sponge. When I apply a decent powder on top it stays in place all day, but will separate pretty badly on its own. The colour match is spot on and doesn’t cover up any glow that my skincare and primer provide! I’m not so sure about the skincare benefits, but my acne prone skin tells me that it’s good for those who are sensitive!! I’m going to keep this for travel as it’s so tiny and non liquid. I highly recommend using the hydro grip primer with it too!⠀Milk MAKEUP - Flex Foundation Stick ⠀ Kush Lash Primer and Mascara: I don’t know how to typically use lash primers, but I’m impressed. It fattens up my lashes really well and gives me the volume I crave. The mascara is lengthening and volumizing too on its own and with the primer. I love how my lashes feel so soft and not stiff with this. It makes removing it literally effortless with an oil cleanser, I don’t get flakes and fallout during the day nor does it smudge. I used the mascara months ago and remember it helping my lashes grow too ⠀Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara Milk MAKEUP - KUSH Lash Primer ⠀ Vegan Milk Moisturizer: love. New holy grail. That’s it. Kidding!! It’s the thickest cream I’ve ever used and it’s so soft and gentle. It feels almost too thick at first but then melts into the skin with some warmth. It’s completely free of irritating ingredients and I have immediate redness reduction and zero tightness when I use this morning or night. It doesn’t pill up over an oil and makes primer and foundation go on very smoothly. Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer
Patrick Ta! Taaaa-daa!! PATRICK TA - Major Glow Highlighting Mist PATRICK TA - Major Glow Shes Extra Duo PATRICK TA - Major Beauty Headlines Double-Take Crème & Powder Blush PATRICK TA - Major Glow On the Go Trio PATRICK TA - Major Glow Setting Fan PATRICK TA - Major Glow Body Oil PATRICK TA - Major Glow All-Over Glow Balm I love Patrick Ta’s products. The smell is sweet and buttery and the glow is fabulous on my middle eastern / south asian skin. I wouldn’t recommend the All Over Glow Balm on the face if you have oily or combination skin because you’ll be taking the ‘dewy look’ to a whole new level!! Overall, love Patrick Ta!
Been obsessed with dewy, flawless, natural skin lately! It must be the summer warmth that makes me love being bronzed and glowy! Here are some amazing products I have been loving lately! PATRICK TA - Major Glow Shes Extra Duo This body oils is so gorgeous, even just owning the bottle feels like a luxury! I’m obsessed with this color and it makes you look like a beach goddess! I love applying this when I’m pale and tan, the only thing is it doesn’t completely dry down so you have to be careful about transfer but it is gorgeous nonetheless! SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask I was skeptical about buying this mask, I had heard so much buzz around it that I finally took the leap! It made my skin look so plump, and feel so soft. I know with continued use I’ll have baby soft skin! This is the perfect mask to use after a long week, or just on a self care night! I’m obsessed! Kosas - Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer Honestly, I didn’t wanna love this concealer because the shade range is basically non existent. But after running out of my current concealer I decided to try it out. I was pleasantly surprised with how much coverage I got and how easy it is to blend and worth with! I’m definitely a fan and it’s much cheaper than my regular concealers so that’s a plus as well! beautyblender - Sunkissed Blend & Cleanse Trio I will forever love my beauty blender! And I just had to have this yellow one. It’s literally so cute and the color makes me so happy! My husband actually bought this for me because every time I saw it I dawned over how adorable I thought it was! So thanks hubby!
🍯🧸Don’t Despair, Honey Bear!🪵
I’m a big Briogeo fan! Both me & my bf use a lot of their hair products. I’ve been using them for years, but recently got him more into taking care of his dry/brittle curly hair. I ordered him so many things to try, Olaplex & all kinds of repairing treatments, but Briogeo oils, masks & his personal favorite Briogeo - Farewell Frizz Rosarco Milk Leave-in Conditioning Spray totally transformed his hair! 🧸I was so excited to see the adorable Honey Bear back in stock! I never got to try it before! I believe this cutie is still limited edition & only available in this set, but I hope I’m wrong, because I will continue to repurchase! Briogeo - Merry Multi-Masking Kit Ft. Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Honey Bear Hair Mask $36/set of 3 hair masks I bought this as a very early xmas gift for both of us...🍯girl I neeeeded that honey bear! This would make a great holiday gift, or to split up as stocking stuffers for your fam! I only knock off a ⭐️because I really wasn’t into one them scent-wise, but that will not be everyone’s experience. 🎁Don’t forget to support black owned brands this holiday season! This giftset includes: One full size 8 oz Honey Bear & two 2 oz tubes 🪵🐻🍯Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair! Honey Moisture Deep Conditioning Mask This is definitely my favorite. Not just because it’s so freakin cute, but the formula is great! I have thick wavy hair that needs a lot of hydration & moisture. This is it! Smells like real Honey, which is also the 8th ingredient. Honey is an excellent hydrator/natural humectant. The formula also contains moisturizing Argan, Almond, Avocado & Rosehip oils. It also has Apple & Ginseng extracts! I absolutely loved how soft & manageable my hair felt afterwards + my hair smelled so amazing & natural! 🥝🥑Briogeo - Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Kiwi Mega Moisture Superfoods Hair Mask I also loved this formula so much! My hair was so soft afterwards & also smells amazing! Real Kiwi extract (9th ingredient) lends itself to this amazing Kiwi-Strawberry smoothie vibe. Avocado oil is the 8th ingredient. It’s very moisturizing & the color (of all 3) comes from natural sources. This crazy green likely comes from the beneficial Algae, Spinach, Aloe & Turmeric extracts. 🌹🥥Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Mask This just wasn’t it for me, I believe I’ve tried it a long time ago & I think it was reformulated. You can see in my swatches, that it isn’t quite as thick as the other 2. It started to slide off my arm where the others didn’t budge. Besides simply not performing as well as the others, the smell really bothered me. I’m not opposed to fragrance especially in hair products, but this was very harsh. It could be a personal thing because it made feel like I couldn’t breathe well & kinda sick to my stomach. Has that sort of sharp cut grass smell. It lasted on my hair too.☹️

Kosas - Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer This product came out earlier last year. I love concealers because I have dark circles and I’m always looking for a good one. This became a staple product in my collection after trying it. Just a couple days ago Kosas released new shades to their line so hopefully it works for more people now. This is a description based on the Kosas website: Turn on your best skin. A medium coverage, super creamy concealer, eye cream, and spot treatment in one that visibly brightens and helps reveal better skin over time. Sooo what are my thoughts? This product is on my top three favorites for a concealer. If I’m going for a natural makeup look I ALWAYS grab this one. It’s extremely creamy and looks beautiful on the skin. After applying it under my eyes I can instantly see the skin care benefits. It sounds weird, but it’s true. This concealer is medium coverage, but if I want added coverage I just use an eye corrector beforehand. It also lasts all day if I set it with powder. Cons? This product runs VERY yellow. Even for me, it’s a little too yellow sometimes. If I want to neutralize this shade I mix it with another concealer. It will crease. Because this product is so creamy, it will crease under your eyes if you don’t set it. What are your thoughts on this product?
Ilia & Kosas on Sensitive Eyes- hit or miss?
I have very sensitive eyes, and just about every makeup brand (including natural/organic) I’ve tried irritates them; they get watery, sting, and within 20 minutes I have to run to the sink to get it off. I got to the point where I just didn’t want to bother trying anymore. Lately however, I’ve started looking again for that HG product that my eyes wouldn’t hate; I’m tired of looking at eyes that look permanently tired (hereditary dark circles). I did a bunch of snooping online, and after staring at Ilia products and Kosas for awhile, and reading reviews, I decided to spend the $$, so here’s my thoughts! I swatchedILIA - True Skin Serum Concealer and Kosas - Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer, and ended up giving Ilia’s a try. I picked up their lightest shade, in Arrowroot. My skin leans combination and I wanted something that felt barely there. Kosas concealer is just what it advertises, it’s very creamy and has a very heavy consistency. Their lightest shade also was too dark on me, so I went with Ilia. The concealer itself really does blend seamlessly into my skin, it has sort of this barely-there scent that I can detect if I sniff the bottle, but it isn’t something I’d ding it for. It kind of just smells like a yummy skincare product tbh. It has a super light consistency, if makeup could be serum-ish, I guess this would be it? It’s very light, and it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing anything which is exactly what I hoped for. The verdict? Hit! No stinging, no itchiness, no irritation. I was super pleased, and it held up all through the day without primer. No creasing really either, which I was impressed with. All in all I will 100% continue to use this, and I’d really like to try some of their other products! The price is a bit hefty, at $30.00 if you’re looking for more affordable products. But in this case I feel like I’m getting what I paid for, especially for a product that not only doesn’t piss off my eyes, but works beautifully. As for Kosas - The Big Clean Volumizing + Lash Care Mascara , I’m kind of sad. Here’s why: It didn’t clump, and it did just what it says. My lashes were voluminous, but also looked very natural. And, most importantly, my eyes didn’t hate it. It felt fine, and all day I forgot I was wearing it. The one gripe I have with it though, is that within the first hour it began rubbing off underneath my eyes, which really sucks because I love everything else about this mascara. It proceeded to do so on and off throughout the day, and honestly it’s like most of it faded off. Due to that, l probably won’t continue to use it. I wanted this to be my HG, but it was kind of a miss due to the way the formula rubbed off and faded. I’m glad I got the mini to trial it instead of the regular size, which retails for $28.
How to FAKE full hair when you have THIN hair!
Let’s begin with the fact that I have long wavy FINE/THIN HAIR! I was always envious of people who had to those full pony tails that you can barely grab with your hand cause there is so much hair! My pony tails are “fake full” because I tease my hair to look fuller in my pony tail look! But if you were to come behind me and try to wrap your hand around my pony, you could fit two pony tails in your ONE hand 😕. I am now comfortable with my hair type because it is not going anywhere and I just have to accept that I need to work with what I have. Thankfully, we have tons of products that work in making us thin hair people feel better about our locks! Now, for the moment you all have been waiting - my super easy trick into faking fuller thick locks when you just got some normal to thin hair! And ladies and gentlemen, the trick is super simple! It requires one step that anyone can do! ALL you need to do is sleep with a high bun using a silk ponytail scrunchie! I swear by this rule because time after time it works like a charm. This works best when you sleep with a lightly tied high bun with a skin hair tie! All those hours will lead to some major volume in the morning when you wake up! When you wake up and undo the bun you’ll see your precious locks in max level! It’s such an easy trick to do if you know you will not have much time in the morning to do your hair! It also works quick if you’re taking a cute picture and need some instant volume. For reference, the pictures are my hair in the high bun for 30 mins while I worked on my makeup! And you can clearly see the volume that is in my hair! But you can only imagine how much more volume and thicker your thin hair will have after sleeping in the high bun! 😛 Honestly, either hair all out or high pony tail will work when you are trying to make your thin hair look fuller! As you can see I usually rock the high bun trick when I am going to wear my hair down the next day for work or going out with friends! The specific hair tie I used is slip - Slip Skinnies ! They retail for $20.00 (3 hair ties) at Sephora or Slip! I like it because it’s not too tight on my hair and they do not leave a crease in my hair EVER! They are super delicate on the hair and will work on all hair types (thin/thick & long/mid length). I am sure any silk hair tie will work in case you can’t find these specific ones I recommend! I love them with all of my heart and will continue to keep buying these once my current batch no longer does the trick! If you have thin hair, please let me know what you do to deal with the thin locks! I’m curious to see what everyone else does! I’ll appreciate any tricks ☺️.

Lit From Within Glowwww✨😍
I recently started using these 4 products for almost 2 weeks now & I’m never turning back!!! •YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream •YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil •YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask •Glossier. - Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid I have never had such a consistent glow to my skin since starting these! I get complimented daily! I love these products so much. The two Youth To The People creams absorb so quickly & don’t leave it feeling like you have all this junk on your face either. My previous moisturizer would always pill up once I went to put anything else on my face & these don’t do that! The Glossier serum is also extremely light & doesn’t clog pores which is something I was worried about initially. It comes out in this pinkish color but it doesn’t turn your skin any other, it just gives you a dewy look. & the Youth To The People serum is amazing of course! It literally gives me this glow like no other! A little bit goes a very long way, as with most of their products. Now I just need to clear up the little bit of texture I have left in my chin! I blame it on the fact that I went out quite a bit the last week (church, grocery shopping, random errands) & of course wore a mask the whole time! Resulting in some maskne 😢 But that is just temporary! As is every blemish! I definitely recommend trying these products guys! They are HOLY GRAILS if there ever was one! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

Good hair day!
FABLE&MANE - HoliRoots Pre-wash Hair Treatment Oil used this overnight to help my scalp and thirsty ends. Love this! Smells good unlike some Ayurvedic hair oils. Plus when I rinsed it out the next morning my hair felt soft and was easier to detangle. ￼FABLE&MANE - HoliRoots Cleansing Shampoo I have been searching for a good shampoo and conditioner for awhile. I have even tried some of those online quizzes where they make a custom shampoo and conditioner. But none of them have really passed the test until I tried this shampoo. It has enough moisture and slip to easily detangle my fine wavy hair but it’s not too heavy either. ￼FABLE&MANE - HoliRoots Nourishing Conditioner Love this conditioner! Holy Grail product! My hair is really damaged when I bleached it to try to go purple. 😓 I have really dry ends and no conditioners I have tried have had the moisture and slip I was looking for. Until this one! Not only can I detangling my hair in the shower a lot easier my hair detangler even after I rinsed it out and it’s almost dry. I did mix it with THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Hair Treatment for the first time and I like it even more. ￼FABLE&MANE - HoliRoots Repairing Hair Mask Used it after the conditioner to moisturize my dry, damaged hair. There’s nothing I don’t love about this product. Love the smell love how it feels on my hair and love how my hair feels after. Rinsed out and had mega wavy definition ￼after squishing some of the THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Hair Treatment in my hair I went in with the THE inkey LIST - Vitamin C Brightening Hair Treatment to protect and help with my damaged hair. Both of these products helped so I had no frizz and was getting a lot of wave definition so I decided not to go in with any gel. ￼Put it up in an AQUIS - Lisse Luxe Desert Rose Hair Wrap for twenty minutes ￼dyson - Supersonic Hair Dryer defuse my hair and ended up with really good looking waves. At least for me because this is the first time in four months I have like my hair enough to not to braid it to help give it more wave.

We know that the first impression a person brings to others is a person's appearance, and the most prominent part of a person's appearance is the hair. Different hairstyles will have different feelings, and we must pay special attention to this part of the hair in our daily care. Regarding hair, whether boys or girls, hair dryer is the most indispensable part of hair care. dyson - Supersonic Hair Dryer $300 This hair dryer is currently the most popular product on the market, and it has occupied a major position in various websites and shopping malls. Dyson hair dryer is designed to protect hair from extreme high temperature. It has the fastest drying speed and controllable shape, which is helpful to improve smoothness, increase luster and reduce curl and scattering. The intelligent thermal control of hair dryer prevents extreme temperatures and overheating. Less damaged hair reflects more light in a single direction, so hair appears shiny. I bought this product very early and I really like it after using it. It can dry your hair in a very short time and improve efficiency. At the same time it will not damage the hair. This will be very useful for our hair. Panasonic Hair Dryer $200 But the price of the last product is indeed more expensive. After I searched carefully, I found another product. I think it can become Dupe. This is a relatively cheap hair dryer, which has been popular with many people in recent years. I also bought home for testing. First of all, compared with the previous hair dryer, Fabricate the swell of hair with "NanoE", to smooth finger styling & moisture background. Blow dry the hair bundle with a quick-drying nozzle and blow it quickly. A fine "nanoi" penetrates into the hair, it regulates the moisture balance of the hair and suppresses the swelling. It gives moisture, it keeps drying which causes background stress, keeps healthy skin. Secondly, in terms of effect, this product will also make hair very smooth and shiny after use. What's more commendable is that I personally think it will make the hair more bulky. Price: Panasonic is cheaper; Use experience: basically the same; Hair drying time: Dyson is shorter; Fluffy degree: Panasonic is better; Glossy: basically the same.
Great little palette if you like purples!
How cute is the new LAWLESS - The Baby One Eyeshadow Palette ?? It’s the perfect size for everyday and I personally enjoy how it has 4 mattes and 2 shimmers. The mattes are powdery so beware if you don’t like that. It doesn’t bother me at all and I found the blend to be quite easy. The rose gold metallic is a little bit chunky so I did my eyes first and applied it with a damp brush and it was beautiful! Overall I do recommend this palette. *This product was sent to me but opinions are my own.
Back to Basics 💭
Whether you are just getting into makeup, looking to expand your collection or even a makeup artist - everyone needs a basic neutral tone palette. Lawless Beauty recently launched The Little One - an 8 pan eyeshadow palette that consists of 6 matte shades & 2 metallics. I prefer more mattes than I do metallics, so I appreciated this ratio. For an 8 pan eyeshadow palette, Lawless Beauty did a great job including the perfect shades for a base, transition, & deepening the outer V. The two metallics, “Luster” & “Bonfire”, are the perfect tones of gold & bronze. Don’t underestimate how versatile this palette can be.. create an all matte eye look, a neutral warm tone eye look or a dark smoky eye look - perfect for day or night looks! & did you know that Lawless Beauty is a clean beauty brand? You’ll find Lawless Beauty & their products under the Clean at Sephora category!⚡️ This was my first time experimenting with Lawless Beauty’s eyeshadow formula, but as someone with an extensive eyeshadow collection, I can say that performance wise - this is a solid palette! The mattes are buttery, creamy & soft with minimal fall out. The metallic shades are smooth, opaque and reflective. I like the sleek, soft matte packaging of the palette. This is such a travel friendly palette, especially if you’re someone who primarily only wears neutrals - you could certainly pack this for a weekend getaway or vacation and still create gorgeous looks! ⚡️ Have you tried anything from Lawless Beauty before? Let me know down below if I should start adding swatches to my makeup posts?! 🖤 * Kindly gifted by brand & Octoly Available now at Sephora for $25 USD ✨ LAWLESS - The Little One Eyeshadow Palette

Mini brand review ✨ Glow Recipe 🍉
Yay for bringing back mini brand reviews! 🥰 This is where I do a couple sentences on every product I’ve tried from a brand. If you have any questions or want an in depth review on a product comment below! GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask - I love this! Creamy formula melts into the skin without being too heavy. Very hydrating but I would only use 2-3x a night. Good beginner retinol. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask- They don’t make this anymore but I did like it! A hydrogel sheet mask that felt resfreshing on the skin. I didn’t see many benefits though. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask - The texture is not for everyone but I like it! It’s a little goopy but it does absorb into the skin once worked in. It smells like watermelon jolly ranchers. I would say oily skin only and only she 2-3x a week but I loved the mild exfoliation. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer - I love this for oily skin! Smells like the sleeping mask but not as strong. Adds a lot of hydration without feeling heavy or sticky. GLOW RECIPE - Limited Edition Lip Pop Duo - I feel like it’s overpriced for what it is but if you’re interested it’s a nice product. It has a waxy feel but it’s very lightweight and nourishing. Both smell AMAZING!! Has mild exfoliation that doesn’t stay long on the lips and a really pretty natural tint. GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops - Again, over priced for what it is but I still like it. The serum feels amazing on the skin and gives all the benefits on niacinamide. Smells like watermelon but it’s a lot fainter than their other products. It doesn’t give a “glow” like they claim though. It’s more a “dolphin” skin effect that doesn’t last long. I would not use over make up though as it has your typical serum consistency.
These 3 products from glow recipe are my all time favorite. I’ve been using all 3 everyday for about a month and I can most definitely see results. My skin is so soft I can’t even put into words and my pores are smaller and my skin just looks healthier and glowing. They are more on the pricey side but worth the money to me I would recommend this for EVERYONE!
THE ULTIMATE TINTED MOISTURIZER SHOWDOWN✨
I loove a good tinted moisturizer. Sometimes, I treat it like the last step of my skincare routine because my favorite formulas tint AND treat the skin with its ingredients! Supergoop! - Daily Correct CC Cream 35+ in Light This is a medium to high buildable coverage tinted moisturizer (the highest coverage out of all 4 formulas). The texture is on the thicker side so I would recommend warming up the product in between your fingers or on the back of your hand with a brush before applying to the face. I love using this on days when I feel like my skin needs a little extra coverage and when I know I want my skin to look dewy and glowy. COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer in Light 7W This has light to medium coverage that is buildable (the second highest coverage out of all 4 formulas). The texture feels like a true lotion, nothing super thick and heavy and runny either. The formula has hyaluronic acid in it which makes it a beautiful skin-plumping product. This is my go-to when I want to look natural but polished. It doesn’t cover up everything on my face but leaves a fresh glowy finish- perfect for everyday! ILIA - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 in ST4 Formosa and ST6 Ora This has a super runny, lightweight consistency that offers only a hint of coverage- basically just adding a bit of color and glow to the face. It’s also formulated with hyaluronic acid and niacinamide to plump, hydrate and treat the skin while ALSO providing SPF. This is the product I use most days as the last step of my skincare routine because it just adds the perfect amount of glow and color for my everyday needs! Milk MAKEUP - Sunshine Skin Tint SPF 30 in Sand I have compared this product to ILIA’s Skin Tint because I find them super similar in application and result. The only difference I can notice is that Sunshine Skin Tint has a little more coverage and feels slightly heavier on the skin so it takes a few more seconds to work in. It’s a great formula and I usually wear this when I want slightly more coverage than usual. Are there other tinted moisturizers I should try?

Great formula but disappointing shade range...
Coverfx recently released their new Luminous Tinted Moisturizer in 4 shades.... The formula is lovely. It’s very creamy, sheer, and buildable. Via their website, it’s an “innovative prebiotic and probiotic formula that blurs pores and fine lines, improves radiance and helps replenish and restore skin’s natural barrier. It’s enriched with prebiotics and probiotics to help strengthen and balance your skin’s living protective layer, Anti-Stress Adaptors to defend against environmental aggressors, and Bamboo, Lotus Flower & Water Lily to hydrate and soothe. Vegan & cruelty-free.” Now let’s talk about the shade range...there are 4: fair/light, medium, tan, and deep. Each attempt to cover a range of 20-30 foundation shades. I was sent fair/light and medium, both of which are not a perfect match for me. Fair/light is very yellow while medium is just too dark for my skin tone. The range definitely needs to be expanded. Although it’s a tinted moisturizer and is sheer, there needs to be at least double what they released. There aren’t any neutral tones and tan and deep are extremely orange and red. This poses a huge issue for many people trying to find a shade. I’m eager to see an expanded shade range in the near future ________ *PR gifted COVER FX - Luminous Tinted Moisturizer

*Rare Beauty* First Impression...
these are some goodies I picked up for Sephora this morning from the Rare Beauty launch 😻 I’m currently wearing everything I purchased and I keep forgetting that I’m even wearing anything! (you can see my previous photo with it on!) I first tried the foundation...holy shit, 48 shades? I had no idea where to start. Luckily, the ladies at Sephora helped me swatch some shades (safely). And omg it is so weightless! You barely feel like you’re wearing makeup! (shade: 180W) The 💞blush💞 is also just as beautiful. A highly pigmented light pink/nude color which blends so well. I’ve never felt a blush quite like that before. Love it! (shade: bliss / matte) This eyebrow pencil/gel/pen is such a brilliant idea! One end is essentially like a pigmented pen/pencil. The other is a gel. It works so well with my dark and thick brows. So so genius. It saves you from getting 2 different products! (shade: soft black) The compact is eco-friendly because you just replace the things inside! Brilliant! It’s such a beautiful case that comes with a mirror, 100 blotting sheets, and a pre-filled translucent powder puff. It takes a few pats to get the powder started so it was hard to tell if it was actually working. But the puff is so so soft and easy to use! 🌎 All in all, I’m very excited about these purchases and really want to try more. What’s not to love? It’s vegan, cruelty free and 1% of Rare Beauty’s annual sales will support the Rare Impact Fund that helps support the mental health community! ✨ Go Selena! ✨

Golden Hour Glow makeup faves ✨✨
I love a glowy makeup look! I like it understated but still bold at the same time. These are my fave products to use to achieve the “glow” in this makeup look. In the summer I use a lot of liquid products because for me sweating is inevitable and I live in a super humid country (South Korea). I find that the more powder I use, the more it looks super cakey and runs off as soon as I start to sweat. I “embrace” the glowy look which is also just sweat 😂😅 So the products I use are: LANEIGE - Glowy Makeup Serum which is a really great launch from them recently! It is super lightweight and gives a beauty understated sheen to the skin! I use this either mixed in with my foundation or right after my primer/before foundation. I love the look this gives my skin! ICONIC - Illuminator Liquid Highlight is single handedly my favorite highlighter product EVER. bold statement I know. I just look the way this looks on the skin. I showed a swatch so you can see how sheen and natural it looks. A very very small amount is needed so this will last forever!!! I love love love this product. Kosas - Color & Light: Cream Blush & Highlighter Duo my favorite cream blush!! See swatch photo! I actually love to combine both of these on the same dense blush brush and apply to the apples of my cheeks. The result is seamless and looks dewy and peachy. Love it! This is the shade velvet melon (High intensity). Get your glow on ✨✨✨😇 #cheriepartner
