Sephora Sale x Friends Discount Haul 🎁
Merry early Christmas to me 😝 a couple of weeks ago, I went into store for the first time in a while to check if I could get certain items in person instead of waiting online. I lowkey only went in for two things, but was also in a buying mood... you know the one 😬 by the time I was at checkout, a girl I know that works there blessed me with a Family & Friends discount at 20% so I wanted to take advantage... and here we are now. I ended ordering the stuff online through the store bc not everything was available in store 😅 I’m excited to try all of these items, as I’ve been eyeing some of them for a while! Remember, we don’t want to over shop, so personally I make sure I limit myself by staying within a certain shopping range
I mainly only shop “clean beauty”
I don’t buy pricey items unless they’re on sale
I don’t need any more skincare for now, so I mainly only buy makeup for experimentationI got a mini set of the TOWER 28 - ShineOn Lip Jelly. I’ve been curious about this brand for some time and though most of these colours (pink and purple) wouldn’t be my first choice, I’m stoked to try out the formula as well as the orange gloss. I also got a full size of this jelly, in Almond, since I got a discount on $18 CAD, which already is quite a decent price! tarte - SEA Water Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 when I saw that it was on sale, I couldn’t help myself but to try it, as I’m on the search for the perfect, creaseless foundation that does not hang out in my smile lines 👏🏽 tarte - Maracuja Magic Foundation Prep Set I’ve been meaning to try a makeup blender sponge for some time now & since this set was on sale, I decided to say yes to an extra oil. Look at this little gateway of skincare into my purchase 😜 tarte - Sea Jelly Glaze Anytime Lip Mask Set Ok so yes I’ve been eyeing for a little while, but I wasn’t going to get it until I got the Family and Friends discount 🥵 Which one would y’all like a review on first?! ✨

TARTE: Rainforest of the Sea Foundation
Yay or Nay? EH it depends. tarte - SEA Water Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 To preface this I have dry, sensitive skin so I'm always on the hunt for hydrating foundation. This is certainly fufills it's claims of being hydrating and medium to full coverage. If used with a brush it's more full coverage but I've also found that it can cling to dry spots. If used with a sponge it's medium coverage and doesn't cling to dry patches but can be harder to work with as it can be slightly patchy. This lives up to its name and is a a VERY watery foundation, using a brush is a lot easier and I would probably reccomend if not for one thing... This foundation is VERY yellow. I don't know if it's my particular shade---15n which claims to have undertones of pink and yellow but I've only seen YELLOW. When I used the brush, the yellow was a lot more prominent as it's full coverage. It wasn't nearly as bad when I used a sponge. For those that have tried this foundation, how did you guys like it?
First clean foundation I’ve used and I love it!
I got this cuz I wanted to start trying “clean” makeup. And oh am I glad!! It goes on smooth. It stays put. It doesn’t dry out skin but if you have dry skin, you have to make sure to moisturize dry areas well before applying. It blurs pores and even covers pretty large or dipped pores (I got some of them 😭). Blush blends easily over this. It’s buildable. What else. It’s perfect!!
90s makeup with only 4 products!
The 90s gave us a lot of amazing makeup trends, but one that I always love to recreate is the blue eyeshadow trend. Back in the day, everyone went for the frosty blue look and I’ve found that you can easily recreate it in just 2 steps. First, you need a light iridescent pink eyeshadow shade to create your base. I love using the shade Silk Teddy from my Too Faced Natural Eyes palette and then adding a little extra to the inner corner for some added sparkle. Once that’s applied, I go in with Stila’s Suede Shade Liquid Eyeshadow in the shade Something Blue, which is a gorgeous sky blue hue that has a hint of shimmer. I like to apply it all over the lid with the applicator it comes with and then use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to blend it out and create a diffused look. My eyes are almond shape and slightly hooded and I’ve found that this formula dries really fast, so you have to be quick with your blending or else it won’t move the way you want it (which you can kind of see in the video). Because of that, this formula isn’t my favorite but Something Blue is the perfect color for this kind of look. To make the look even more ‘90s, I recommend applying your favorite pink blush and really going for it. For my look, I added a generous amount of Tower 28’s Beach Please balm in the shade Magic Hour and then finished it off with a sweep of Tower 28’s ShineOn Jelly Lip Gloss in clear. #CherieCreators
Favourite Lip Glosses!
So lately I’ve been ready into lip glosses and sheer lip looks so I thought I’d share some of my faves as of lately! FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer Shade: Fu$$y CAD $25 I love this lip gloss and have heard so many good things about it! Although it is on the more expensive side (for me at least!) but I think it’s worth it. It’s a lot more sheer than I expected but it looks super good over a a more pinky lipstick! I like to wear it over lip stains to make my lips look more glossy as lip stains can make your lips look a lot dryer. Kosas - Wet Lip Oil Gloss Shades: Jaws, Dip, and Jellyfish CAD $36 full-size $33 for the set of minis I also really love this lip gloss set I got from Kosas. This is also a more expensive gloss/oil but if you get it in the set of three like I did it’s WAY cheaper (however it is limited edition). These glosses are super pigmented, especially the red one! They look super natural for a little pop of colour on your lips. They’re also good toppers for lipstick! TOWER 28 - ShineOn Lip Jelly Shades: Spicy and Chill CAD $18 I discovered this brand when I was searching for the best clear gloss about a year ago. The clear shade is awesome as a topper for lipstick but I usually tend to wear it just on its own for a natural glossy look. The red one is very pigmented but still looks natural and doesn’t look like a lipstick (which I prefer). It also lasts a long time (not under a mask though unfortunately) but unfortunately is on the thicker side which some people might not like so I can sometimes feel quite sticky. All in all though these are some of my favourite glosses and there all clean beauty. COLOURPOP - So Juicy Plumping Gloss Shade: Big Slice CAD $8 I love a lot of ColourPop product but their lip glosses are some of my faves. This is a plumping gloss so if you’re not used to that then it will sting. It gives a nice sheer red colour which I love and looks good on its own with a no makeup look. It’s super travel friendly with the squeezy bottle and I like to keep this one in my purse. It’s also super inexpensive which is a huge plus.
TO WEAR MAKEUP OR NOT TO WEAR MAKEUP LOOK 😋
I love a good no makeup makeup look and tbh, this was my GO TO back in high school. Since then, times have changed, my makeup style has changed and better products for my skin have also come out! ☺️ Here are the products I used to create this look! 🙉 (ps when I wear barely there makeup, I don’t like to play with any eye makeup so in video it looks odd but in person it looks like your skin but better) COVER FX - Power Play Concealer a new favourite in my collection which I used all over my face. It’s lightweight but still has coverage! CLOVE+HALLOW - Conceal + Correct another new favourite to help brighten my under eyes! Also a great coverage concealer that really doesn’t crease!! CLOVE+HALLOW - Hydratint Blush Serum also a new favourite! Never heard of a serum blush? It’s better then cream and it’s peer for those with oily skin cause it looks sooo natural but it dries down without leaving a tacky feeling! laura mercier - Translucent Loose Setting Powder I use the med/deep for all over my skin! I like it and it’s natural but it’s not my FAVE powder but gets the job done and brings back colour into my skin Charlotte Tilbury - Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder haven’t played with this tiny mini long enough but it’s super smooth and nice under the eyes! MAC - MAC Powder Blush my favourite ever blush! Adds the perfect flush of red/orange all at once for my skin tone FENTY BEAUTY - Sun Stalk'r Instant Warmth Bronzer the smoothest, silkiest bronzer ever and this shade is super subtle and this mini is sooo perfect! I use it all the time VENICS - Diamond Glow Melted Highlighter this is soo good! It’s not weird or anything and blends seemlessly and adds a bold punch without needing much AOA studio - Lumi Blush another favourite rn to top off the cream blush COLOURPOP - Ultra Glossy Lip pretty decent gloss. Not sticky or anything, subtle colour but my faves are the fenty ones! And that’s it! She’s glowy but set! 🥰❤️ #cheriepartner
