NEW HAULS - Which to Review First?!

valchemic
So excited! To be receiving these two hauls that I ordered at different times BACK TO BACK is almost overwhelming, but I’m up for the dopamine challenge lol. One is from Sephora and the other from Socialite Beauty, an online Canadian retailer that sells both Canadian and American clean beauty 🙌🏽 I have been seeking the perfect gold eye shadow so that’s how I ended up with 3 palettes... And you know with online shopping, to qualify for “free shipping” you almost always have to add an extra item or two so here I am with an extra brown lipstick and an armpit soap bar. And looks like I’ll finally be trying Amika thanks to Sephora’s generous sample. Some fun facts: ⭐️ This is my first time trying Pat McGrath, so now I get to see what all the rave is about! ⭐️ This is like my 5th Aetherbeauty product because that’s how good they are! So what product should I review first?! 🥵

My foundation collection 🥳
Here's a rundown of every foundation I have and my rating/opinion on them (the ones I've owned for quite a bit)! Enjoy :) MAYBELLINE - Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation in 112 natural ivory - moves around a lot and isn't good for oily skin, since I found it to need lots of powder Glossier. - Perfecting Skin Tint in shades G10, 11 & 12 - they're tints, so don't expect full coverage - more like light-medium, you can build it up. I give them 4/5 stars bc they need to expand their shade range and bc I found I needed lots of powder to set this one. Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation in 140C - I'm so impressed by this one and I love it. So worth it and the shade range is really good. A good long wearing foundation and I didn't have any issues. Too Faced - Born This Way Natural Finish Foundation in seashell & cloud - I mix them together to get my perfect shade, since cloud is too light and seashell is too dark. Def one of the best foundations (if not the best) ever made. COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Skin Milk Foundation in 510/porcelain - too light but not a bad foundation, more of a skin tint and the smell kinda bothers me I have yet to try all these in a wear test: DIOR - BACKSTAGE Face & Body Foundationin 1 cool rosy ARMANI beauty - Luminous Silk Foundation in 3.75 HOURGLASS - Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stickin vanilla ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation in 1C0 shell beautyblender - Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wear Foundationin 1.50 cool Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Longwear Foundationin 2 cool Next up to try: Fenty pro filt'r soft matte foundation and YSL all hours foundation - I have samples of both and I'm excited to try them

September Ipsy Haul 🦋
Hey friends! Just showing off my ipsy products that I just received in the mail. I’m super happy with them all! I used to subscribe to ipsy years ago and they were just *ok*. I got back into them last month and have really been impressed with the improvements they’ve made. Yes, the prices are a couple dollars higher now, but it seems the selection process and quality of products has greatly increased, so I’m not mad at it. They’ve also added the “Plus” and “Ultimate” subscription options, so I signed up for the regular bag and the Plus for $37/mo. This is my first time getting the Plus bag and I am soooo happy with the products I got! I might sell a few of them on my Poshmark store, but otherwise I’ll be keeping the vast majority of them. In the past, I found myself selling everything most months, so it’s refreshing to receive a good amount of exciting products. Thanks for stopping by! Remember to hydrate and check your WiFi 😘 I’ll try to tag as many of these products as I can: it Cosmetics - it Cosmetics CC+ Cream SPF 50+ beautyblender - Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wear Foundation REALHER - Confidence in My Glow Highlighter Maëlle - Clearly Brilliant Tinted Lips trèStiQue - Lip Glaze Limited Edition Set(closest I could find to the actual product) OFRA - OFRA Highlighter Shade: Covent Garden YENSA - SUPER 8 LIP OIL STARSKIN - Close-Up Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Firming Face Mask STARSKIN - Glowstar Foaming Peeling Perfection Puff

Makeup for Special Occasions: Clubbing 💃🏽
Omg can I just say that doing this look made me miss going out even more! 😢 I personally thrive on the dance floor 💃🏽 But anyways, you guessed right this is my clubbing makeup. Let’s be real when we’re going clubbing, it’s important to keep in mind that most of our makeup will be sweated off by the end of the night, so I prefer to keep it as glam yet simple as possible! I achieve this by using fun colours that I normally wouldn’t, with a few products. So here you see I am wearing blue eyeliner, which takes a while to come off & a purplish pink gloss to give my lips a tinted shine that I won’t have to keep maintaining with several lipsticks and lip liners! By the way, I’m not wearing foundation bc that’ll definitely get messy throughout the night with the way I’m dancing & I just love my skin how it is, honestly! 1. I started this look off with doing my brows. I got them waxed today ✨ so I didn’t need to shape them up, just filled them in with Milk MAKEUP - KUSH Fiber Brow Gel 2. Next I used SAPPHO - New Paradigm Concealer to let the ĀETHER BEAUTY - Crystal Grid Gemstone Palette eyeshadow last a bit longer throughout the night. I used an icy blue from this palette to just brighten the eyes more, which would look nice when the light hits em. (For shadow on the eye crease and contour I used MISMACK - Large ART Shadow in 'Shade' which is not captured bc it crumbled after falling oK?!😭) 3. Then I did a cat eye on each side in blue with L'ORÉAL - Infallible Paints Eyeliner . Oops it’s not “clean beauty” but it glides so nicely and the pen doesn’t dry out mid stroke, which I really respect. I also have this in white for future face art experiments 🖼 4. Completed fanning the lashes with the superb Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara we all got for our birthdays from Sephora 💝 5. Used FENTY BEAUTY - Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter to warm up the cheekbones with both the orange and pink and then LAWLESS - Lucid Skin Highlighter to highlight the usual areas. 6. I know in the last post I gave it a 4 star rating, but honestly, I finally found the use for the BITE - Yaysayer Plumping Lip Gloss in Plum Tart, as I noticed it lasts quite a while without needing to be reapplied. Such a win! It tastes like Coca Cola and isn’t too sticky, but gives enough of shine and pigment to make it look like you’re wearing something 👌🏽 #CheriePartner

Golden eye look 🌞🍂
This was my look for my man’s birthday today 🎉 we went to a VR arcade and it was sunny, so I was feeling virtuous. I have an almond shaped and a bit of a creased/folded eye, so doing graphic liner like this is a bit of a challenge to make sure I don’t leave smears on the eye folds. I make sure to glide the eyeliner over the part of the eye that won’t fold much during most of my regular movements. The makeup used here is SAPPHO - New Paradigm Concealer In Caramel, as an eye primer for longer lasting eyeshadow ĀETHER BEAUTY - Crystal Grid Gemstone Palette I love this palette made with crystals, it’s such a smooth formula - I used the gold shadows from this MAYBELLINE - Ultra Liner Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner This isn’t the exact one I got, as it’s pretty old. But I was trying to get one of my “clean beauty” liquid eye liners to work & it didn’t glide as fast as this one 🤪 pretty strong hold throughout the day too, just a little too liquidity maybe bc it’s been opened for a few months...tho now that I think about it, I should have shook it!! Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara Love this, buildable volume ILIA - Limitless Lash Mascara Used this too separate the eyelashes to fan em out a little more 🦚 #CheriePartner

Is high end ryeshadow better than drugstore?
In this look are used both the going coconuts eyeshadow palette by color pop and I also used hey Pat McGrath shadow the gold shadow in the middle. The color pop mats were like heaven they just blend it like pure butter. In my opinion the shimmers in the color pop palette were a little powdery but to me not a big deal it’s a shadow there powder. The fat McGrath glitter shadow it is absolutely wonderful team and I did get it on sale for 1450 sell to me they’re both equally worth the money. that being said I think the color pop eyeshadow palette is much better you get much more versatility in your Alex and the quality is just top-notch for the price.

Pat McGrath Labs: Subversive Swatches 🌈
PAT McGRATH LABS - Eye Ecstasy : Eye Shadow Palette 💫 Cherie technically made me buy it bc I confirmed that I for sure wanted to get this palette after seeing @AlexRonallo’s swatches! There’s very few exceptions I make for non-clean beauty and I gotta say it’s usually to a) support Black Women and b) find exactly what I’m looking for!! In this case, I’ve been searching for the perfect gold eyeshadow and PMG has peeked my interest long enough for me to be tempted to actually try it. Also this palette was on sale from $38 to $19 CAD at Sephora, which is a pretty affordable price for PMG! What makes it not clean? The ingredient I’m mostly concerned with is Talc, as it may be cross-contaminated with asbestos, a carcinogen, during its process of being mined from underground. You can learn more about this in the Toxic Beauty documentary & make the decision for yourself, I’ve personally made mine buuuut I gotta say after this swatch, I am completely impressed with the pigment! It’s gorgeous & I can’t wait to pull looks with this! It’s just not going to be my everyday palette 😆 Stay tuned for the next Eye Ecstasy palette swatch in Sublime, since I got both 😅 #CheriePartner

AMIKA PERK UP DRY SHAMPOO REVIEW
Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo Review an unexpected haircare fav i discovered in 2020 was this dry shampoo from @amika! because ya girl has the typical fine hair + oily roots, dry shampoo is a pretty big staple for me. i was able to try out a mini size of this in a @sephora hair care set & loved it! this dry shampoo contains Sea Buckthorn Berry like many other Amika products which is meant to protect and nourish the hair. i found that this dry shampoo did a good job at absorbing excess oil without weighing my hair down. at first application, it does spray white but when brushed out, it doesn't seem to leave a white cast on my dark hair. i enjoy the bit of volume it adds to my hair and it also happens to smell *really freaking good!!* using this, i'm able to extend my hair washing days to about 4 or 5 days. i know this is a little more pricey compared to drugstore dry shampoos but def a good option if u don't mind treating yourself a little! for $25 you get 5.3 oz which definitely lasts awhile. i noticed there usually are some good black friday deals on this product and i managed to get 4 of these for $32 on @birchbox so i'm literally set on dry shampoo for all of 2021 HAHA i feel like i do be neglecting my hair sometimes so i think this year, i'll be paying a little more attention to my haircare. i'm keen to try more from amika so if u have any amika must haves, pls let me know in the comments!!

Where would you rock this hairstyle? All you have to do is as many knots as you need it depends on the length of your hair and pin them in place every time you make one ☝️.

Key points: 🔸Once you apply the flaxseed let you hair completely dry the longest you keep the flaxseed on the better. 🔸You will probably see some flaxseed flakes after it dries, that is why I like to use a comb and remove all the excess. 🔸Then blow out using the lowest heat temperature.

You Can Make Your Face Look Slimmer Without Any Cosmetic Surgery!
You Can Make Your Face Look Slimmer Without Any Cosmetic Surgery!
My face is round face, but the angle of mandible is a little obvious, which makes me very distressed sometimes. Because there is a lot of flesh on the face, it would appear fatter, and the obvious angle of mandible sometimes appears to be older. This requires me to do some extra work when I make up.   MAC - Extra Dimension Skinfinish Highlighter #Double Gleam $33   This is the secret weapon I just discovered. With MAC Double-Gleam Extra Dimension Skinfinish, I don't need any cosmetic surgery to make my facial contour more beautiful. This product is light gold with a nice metallic sheen and yellow undertones.   This product of MAC is also very worth buying. It adds the perfect glow to skin. The liquid-powder highlighter, with prismatic reflections, is designed to sculpt and highlight your face, leaving a luminous, well-defined finish.  What's more, the creamy powder formula lasts up to 10 hours, which could last for a long time without any makeup.   This product is really kind for everyone. Double-Gleam was richly pigmented but could easily be sheered out or used with a less dense brush for a more moderate glow. The consistency was soft and smooth, so it was easy to apply and work with on the face to highlight on cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, and so forth.   My steps are generally three. The first step is to gently sweep up the highlight next to the hairline of the forehead, which is near the end of the eyebrows, and this can make the face fuller. The second step is the very important part, nose, highlight the upper part of your nose according to your own shape. Finally, the lower part of the face. A little bit on the chin, this will make your face look a lot slimmer.   It is also very friendly to novices who are just learning makeup, because this product will not be pressed to the face all at once, so even if you make a mistake, there will be room for modification.

QUARANTINE GLOW UP AT HOME✨
QUARANTINE GLOW UP AT HOME✨
I have been putting off my eyebrows, lashes, hair and nails for so long it finally all needed to be done. I normally do all of those things at home but since I had nowhere to go it was not at the top of my priorities. I will be posting the individual videos to my at home brows, hair and this makeup look but here are the products featured in the video: EYEBROWS: I tweezed my brows with tweezers to clean up stray hairs. I follow the natural guide of my eyebrow but I can create a video on how to find your natural eyebrow guide. Not featured, I used eyebrow scissors to trim the hair. Hair: I used Loreal Quick Blue bleach with ion 30 volume developer to bleach parts of my hair into a balayage. I then died my hair with Wella ColorCharm 8A/740.5 permanent hair dye with 20 volume developer and Ardell UnRed. Makeup: I wanted to go for a rose gold look so I used theMORPHE - Morphe X Maddie Ziegler The Imagination Palette and created a soft glam. I also used FENTY BEAUTY - Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter to add a glow to the look. The final results were a boost to my self esteem even though I had nowhere to go. Are you doing any at home treatments or are you waiting for salon appointments?⬇️⬇️ #CheriePartner Song: raindrops (60’s remix) by Ariana grande
