Finding the right shade/coverage seasonally
Hi there, I’ve noticed like most people I’ve had a lot of trouble matching my foundation and finding coverage that works for my complexion (neutral undertones and freckles) so here’s a review on my newest finds. tarte - Amazonian Clay BB Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 I initially was very impressed with this product but I’ve noticed it’s very very light coverage which can either work great if it’s summertime & you need something lightweight, or if you need any type of coverage it’s basically not going to help in any way. AMAZING for dry skin. Ive been using this product alone all summer for my face. As New York has gotten cooler in the last two months and the sun has gotten less intense, I’ve been mixing it with the Maybelline Dream Cover to lighten it up. I don’t think that tarte has a very strong range of shades and found it difficult to color match for a neutral undertone. MAYBELLINE - Dream Urban Cover Foundation SPF 50 This is an amazing foundation mixed with a BB/CC cream or just by itself. It has anti-pollution protection and an amazingly strong SPF of 50. This is not a buildable coverage foundation, very liquidy, but stays put with a nice natural finish like the BB cream. This foundation matches my undertones closer than any other. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation This works better when you need more coverage, it will stay the majority of the day but not more than 10-12 hours. I have unfortunately stopped using this foundation, as it is too cakey for my liking. I recommend a mist beforehand or a wet applicator. Color matches nicely but not as close as the Maybelline. 1st picture on each layout is me with no makeup. 1st comparison is with Maybelline foundation and the 2nd is with the tarte BB cream. The L’oréal makeup was never too complimentary on me so I have little to no pictures for that comparison.

I’ve finally got my 10-minute makeup look down - it’s pretty close to a no-makeup makeup look, but that’s why I like it. It’s hard to tell that I’m wearing makeup in the first place, but I know that I definitely look a little more polished than if I was barefaced. One of my tips for having a fast makeup routine is using a sunscreen that doubles as primer - it means you don’t have to apply primer as a separate step, speeding up the process! Here’s the order I apply my 10-minute routine in: ➡️ Foundation I use a thinnish layer of Wet n Wild Photofocus foundation, applying with the ELF Selfie Brush. This brush alone makes the process so quick - it blends foundation out so quickly! I apply a thinner layer so that any redness is hidden on my skin, but my natural freckles still show through. This isn’t a high coverage routine, and for on the go, this foundation is matte enough to go without powder. wet n wild - Photofocus Liquid Matte Foundation e.l.f. - Selfie Foundation Blurring Brush ➡️ Eyes I love using bronzer as eyeshadow because it adds a little definition to the eyes, without needing the precision of a proper eyeshadow look. I like to use Nars Laguna, and I’ve also combined it with mascara to open up my eye. If there’s one step I never skip, it’s mascara! It helps my eyes look much more awake and makes the biggest difference in this look. NARS - Blush/Bronzer Duo L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara ➡️ Brows I’ll fill in my brows a little bit, but a too-defined brow doesn’t suit the more natural nature of this look. I use a micropencil like the one from Maybelline, then set my brows with a brow gel. Lately, I’ve been using the Benefit 24hr Brow setter! I actually don’t like Brow Setter that much, it’s much wetter than I prefer for a brow gel. I find I can easily accidentally put too much on at once so I have to be careful. To make this routine even speedier (if I’m short on time) I would use a tinted brow gel so that there’s colour added to the brow without needing to use a pencil! MAYBELLINE - Brow Ultra Slim Defining Eyebrow Pencil benefit - 24-Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel ➡️ Lips In the interest of speed, I also don’t use a coloured lip product - I’ll just go for lip gloss or lip balm. LUCAS' PAPAW REMEDIES - Lucas' Papaw Ointment Lip Balm It’s a really understated look, but for me it’s enough to feel more polished and ready for the world in just ten minutes! :)
A traditional Punjabi look!
Traditional Punjabi look requires a lot of heavy, blingy jewellery. It includes earrings, necklaces, bangles, etc. I am not really a fan of the colour pink on my lips, but I think it looks okay.

ten minute makeup! ⏰
hello everyone! today i am showing you this ten minute makeup look! its not too natural, but its natural enough to be able to wear anywhere☺️ lts also very easy to do! dont forget to follow and cheer for more😇 i personally have very oily and acne prone skin, and also very pale skin, so that can make it pretty hard to find a good foundation. my main concern is coverage and resistance to oil. my main goal with all of my makeup looks though is to highlight my eyes, as they are my favorite part of my face😄 so, i started with an oil-control primer, COVERGIRL - TruBlend Face Primer . they make different types of this primer, and i bought the mattifying one. one way to save time in your makeup rountine is to get a fast drying primer like this one! after that, i use a pretty decent amount of my all time favorite foundation, Juvia's PLACE - I am Magic Velvety Matte Foundation in the shade alexandria. this foundation is amazing! it has a semi matte, velvet finish, and is very high coverage. it lasts all day and comes in 40 different shades! next, i go in with my e.l.f. - 16HR Camo Concealer in the shade light peach. i put this under my eyes, and on my lid. i dont usually have to conceal any zits, as my foundation does that for me! i set all of this with my e.l.f. - Perfect Finish HD Powder , which helps control oil throughout the day. i then move onto the eyes. for this look i used a single shade from the COLOURPOP - COLOURPOP X Mulan Eyeshadow Palette called “imperial” above my crease and under the eye. i topped off my lid with a COLOURPOP - Colourpop Super Shock Shadow called “frog” to add dimension to my eyes. after that, i finished off with mascara. because my eyelashes are one of my favorite features, i never, NEVER, forget mascara. it makes my eyes pop! for this i use my favorite mascara, L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Original Mascara and i apply a few coats. i finished with a new favorite, COLOURPOP - Crème Lux Lipstick Hua Mulan . this lipstick is AMAZING! it has a lot of pigment, and its not too orange or too brown. its also not too dark but not too light. you know what i mean?😂 not only is the color very nice, but its extremely creamy. it feels moisturizing, not drying, even though its semi-matte. it also lasts for a long time too! 👄 and thats it!! this took me about ten minutes, and basically i just focused on making myself presentable😂lemme know your quick makeup rountine in the comments! #CheriePartner
love the skin you’re in
As you can see, my base isn’t flawless. Even though I’m undergoing treatments to minimize my pores, control my sebum, and clear up my acne, I’m also trying to love my skin the way it is because it’s never going to be perfect. And even though I criticize myself and nitpick at every little flaw on my face, most of the time other people don’t notice those little flaws. So if you’re into self-love and appreciating your natural beauty, this is a post for you! I do appreciate concealer and foundation, but I’m someone who doesn’t really like covering my entire face with makeup. My goal is to enhance my looks, rather than cover everything up. I’ve found that Bobbi Brown is a huge proponent of this idea, which is why her products work so well for me. So in this picture, I don’t have any concealer or foundation on, just a mix of eyeshadow, bronzer, blush, mascara, eyeliner, and lipstick. BOBBI BROWN - BOBBI BROWN Bronzing Powder I use this both on my lids as an eyeshadow and as a second layer of bronzer. It’s more of a matte color rather than a shimmery color, which is why I use something else on top for a shimmer. BOBBI BROWN - Bobbi Brown Blush For a pop of color on my cheeks BOBBI BROWN - Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner Nothing fancy, I just fill in my lash line with this. BOBBI BROWN - Eyeshadow This is an eyeshadow but I use a dark brown color for my eyebrows. PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer A shimmery bronzer that gives extra glow for me. DIOR - Addict Lacquer Stick A simple lipstick that goes on creamy and gives my lips a slightly enhanced natural color. L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Original Mascara I switch up my mascaras once in a while but I like this one a lot. The key to this look, I would say, is trying your best to care for your skin and for yourself. You don’t need it to look perfect and flawless, just give your body and face a little TLC. As long as you take care of your skin as best as you can, I think you can learn to love your skin as it is, with flaws or without.

I think we all know the 90s are back in so many ways and I swear no one wants to stop with the makeup either so I thought why not go for one of my favourite looks every that is totally inspired by this photo of Cindy Crawford 💕 The key in this the hazy eye look, long lashes and that sultry brown lip!😉 L'ORÉAL - Infallible Fresh Wear 24HR Foundation a fabulous hydrating formula for this time of the year with medium to full coverage essence - Camouflage + healthy glow concealer first time using it and it didnt even crease at all! I’m shook have to play around but brightened and concealed the darkness URBAN DECAY - The Velvetizer Translucent Mix-in Medium applied a little under my eyes and dusted the rest over my entire face MAC - MAC Powder Blush used the shade burnt pepper to add that beautiful red glow to my cheeks FENTY BEAUTY - Sun Stalk'r Instant Warmth Bronzer added some warmth with on of my fav bronzers! Added this throughout my crease and for my nose contour VESCA - Soft-Matte Bronzing Powder Kissed By used a deeper and cooler shade to add a little contour. Added this to deepen my eye makeup MORPHE - Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette used the black and dark brown in the palette to add a slight wing but blended it out a lot to add a smudged grunge look L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Carbon Black Volume Building Mascara added mascara to add some colour to my lashes and lengthen the lashes like the picture VESCA - Lush Glow Creamy Lip Oil first time using this bad boy in the shade morning glory for that PERFECT brown lip and omg I’m in love🤗 going to be my go to lip colour this fall! I have to say, for a simple look like this make sure you take your time with the lip colour as everything else is pretty simple and straight forward! I also decided to add the wing rather than just smoking out my eyes since I just wanted an inspired look from the 90s without losing the essence so adding the wing but with shadow and smudging it out allowed for it to be modern but still 90s😋👍🏽 #cheriepartner

Long stay Must have girls! My top 3 kiss proof lip stains for dating💋💋💗💗
Finding a long-lasting, smudge-proof lip stain that survives all day and night is no mean feat – unless you're channelling the freshly-smooched lips from the runway, that is. If that lipstain gets smudged or wears down that trick can backfire on you in a major way, especially when you are enjoying a sweet dating. This post I am going to share three lovely babies for you! Top1 DIOR - Addict Lip Tattoo I bought the color 771. I really like this color. This lip stain is the top one among all the lip stains I have used. It is super glossy and gorgeous color. I would definitely recommend this lip stain to every girl who wants long lasting popping color. It's that deserving of its body art-inspired name! Top2 REVLON - Ultra HD Matte Lip Color It is waterproof and matte, is a sexy and juicy color and the best thing about this is that it lasts a long time, I love it, it has a sweet smell that is great, and the perfect tone for my lips. It's not super expensive either. So I would definitely buy it again! Top3 L'ORÉAL - Rouge Signature Matte Liquid Lipstick I recommend the color 450. I wasn’t too sure about it when I picked it up but it’s so pretty. It’s very wet on application, but not like a gloss. It’s silky and smooth and leaves a really pretty matte finish.Long stay Must have girls!!! These three lip stains are all worth the money. Brought from target with a good deal!!! 🥰🥰🥰
Under $20! Dupe for NARS slow ride & Chanel 834💄
L'ORÉAL - Rouge Signature Matte Liquid Lipstick provides the color impact of a liquid lipstick with a weightless, bare-lip sensation. This ultra-comfortable liquid matte lip stain provides lasting matte color and gives lips intense color. The Rouge Signature Matte High Pigment, lightweight lip ink, is one of the best long lasting lip products I have ever used! I love make up and have tried probably 90 percent of long lasting lip colors, lip stains, lip sticks, etc, of all sorts and brands, I'm also very picky, so I definitely know a great lip product. This Lip stain goes on so smooth, the color is absolutely beautiful, fully pigmented, and long lasting, even after drinking and eating. It doesn't flake, or dry your lips out, it really is and does feel lightweight, there ar no sticky clumps. I find that so many lip products that are long lasting and matte finish, cause extreme dry lips, flaking, and color fading, but all these problems are solved with L'Oréal's Rouge Signature. I suprisingly find that #116 is a good dupe for NARS - Powermatte Lip Pigmentslow ride and Chanel 834CHANEL - Rouge Allure Liquid Powder Liquid Matte Lip Color!! #116 I explore is a really nice colour on me. You do have to reapply if after a while which is the only downside but it lasts longer than other L'oréal lipsticks I've tried. I would definitely recommend it. I love the subtleness of the colour on my lips. It feels smooth on my lips so is easy to apply. I really like the fact that you don’t feel like you are wearing lipstick as it feel light on my lips.... The colour is slightly darker than online but still nice. It has a funny consistency when applying very thin and waterlike and then it dries to a rich matt colour. However there are also some disadvantages. Upon application this stain went on smoothly and felt pleasant, the texture is very smooth. As it dried it did feel very light, although I would say more 'barely there' than 'bare lip'.After about half an hour my lips did start to feel dry so I checked my reflection and thought they looked quite dry too. It's worth mentioning that my lips have quite deep lines which is why I prefer glossy lipsticks that sit on the surface. If you don't have this problem then it probably won't bother you.At this point I had a cup of tea and a biscuit to see how the lip stain fared. Not well, it was completely gone afterwards but then it didn't promise to be permanent so I just reapplied it.The next day I added some clear gloss over the top and got on much better. No dry lips and the gloss protected the colour for a while.Whilst I like the colour and subtle scent of this lip stain I probably won't buy it myself as I'd rather a moisturising lipstick or gloss. However if you like the matte look and want something lighter than most lipsticks I'd try this. Remember These ey Benefits: * At last, matte color with a lightweight feel - bare lip sensation, lasting matte finish * Matte colored lip stain delivers high color impact with a no-makeup feel * Ultra-lightweight, impactful pigment, fresh matte finish, and lasting wear * Designed with precision applicator to shape and line your lips

(TAGGED IN PIC FROM LEFT --> RIGHT) Today I'm going to be rating some mascaras and sharing some tips & tricks with you about, you guessed it, mascara! First let's start with tips, these will be about application & just things that may make the application easier: BEND THE WAND! I know this seems scary but it can actually help with your application & lessen the chances of smudging. So just take your wand head & bend it to a 90° angle this will allow you to maneuver the wand better and keep you from getting that clump of mascara on your nose, you know what I'm talking about. 🤣 I promise the wand will be safe & intact as long as we don't go Hulk on it. DRY MASCARA? This is one of my personal favorite hacks, if you accidentally left your mascara open or anything like that run the tube under hot water/keep it inside of a glass while doing other steps of your make up routine this will help smooth out the formula & make application 10x better. SMUDGING? Use a clean spoolie (like on the back of brow pencil) AFTER mascara has dried, if you gently brush the spoolie onto your face the mascara will begin to flake off without ruining your look! TWIRL, DON'T PUMP! I know it seems natural to pump your mascara tube for more products but please stop! When you do, it allows air inside the tube which can dry out the formula & make it susceptible to bacteria. So if you need more product, before you fully take out the wind twirl it around for even distribution of product. MIXING! I do this all the time try using more than one type of mascara, all wands are made differently so they have different purposes I like to use a voluminous and lengthening mascara! Find a formula you love & see what you can do to make it even BETTER! Lastly I just wanna touch on different application techniques - Wiggling wand: helps maintain curl - Wiggling horizontally at lash base: thicker/voluminous lashes - Wiggling vertically at lash base: natural effect Now the fun part: RATINGS! Most are waterproof formula because I feel it holds my lashes up longer. MAYBELLINE - Volum' Express The Rocket Waterproof Mascara - an old favorite! good volume not my favorite brush head, it is plastic. benefit - They’re Real! Lengthening Mascara - don't like the "They're Real" line! everything feels dry & doesn't apply well L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara - okay but too wet, smudged on me a lot L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Million Lashes Waterproof Mascara - great for separating, i like to pair this with other mascaras! essence - Lash Princess False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara - current fave! all essence mascaras are bangers but this one is the BEST! Too Faced - Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara - stayed put but almost too well! need industrial grade remover for this Thanks for reading. ❤️ #cheriepartner

DUPE ALERT! Mac fix / L’Oréal true match
This foundation has always been my go to, #1 choice and it’s so cheap! I have tried so many different foundations and honestly, nothing compares. Even high end ones! After doing a lot of research, I found out that the ingredients in a lot of “drug store” brands are actually nearly identical to other more expensive makeup brands. I always wondered why the L’Oréal true match was SO good and now I know! It’s nearly identical to the Mac Fix that people swear by. You’re welcome 😘
I have oily skin and make up never seems to last too long. Over the years I’ve learned some ways to get more out of my makeup but ultimately the oil always wins. I also have hyperpigmentation all over my face so my makeup always needs to be full coverage so I can conceal it. When it comes to foundation I have tried both liquid and powder. Which is best for my oily skin? Liquid Foundation: when wearing a liquid foundation I’ve found that mattifying foundations are a must! It may look matte on the skin for a short while but when your skin is oily like mine you’ll end up looking dewy. I find that liquid foundations often look more skinlike than powder foundations however it is so hard to find the perfect shade my face always ends up looking a little lighter or darker than the rest of my body. Too much foundation can make my skin look cakey. Powder Foundation: i feel like powder foundations are easier to match to skin tone and easier to build up without looking cakey. However, powder foundations make my skin look dull even when using a highlighter and when combined with a mattifying primer and leave dry/flakey spots on the skin. Verdict: though there are pros and cons to both types of foundation I like liquid foundation better. It helps achieve a radiant skinlike look that I love! My top liquid foundations: High end LANCÔME - Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation IL MAKIAGE - WOKE UP LIKE THIS Drugstore L'ORÉAL - True Match Super-Blendable Foundation Makeup Powder Primark - PS My Perfect Colour Foundation Pressed Powder SEPHORA COLLECTION - Matte Perfection Powder Foundation #CheriePartner

I have been using this foundation forever. I don’t even try new ones because nothing has ever beat the price and the quality of this product for me! I have acne prone, SUPER OILY skin, so this is the only foundation I ever use to combat some of my oil. Plus I have hyperpigmentation and this leaves such a beautiful soft matte, healthy finish and medium coverage on the skin😍 I use it for my everyday look and even when I go out and I’m wearing more makeup. It works for everything. It lasts all day and keeps the coverage even on my oily skin. Honestly even when I touch up on my nose during the day, it still doesn’t look cakey and nasty but still beautiful. Plus half the time I don’t use primer so it’s just this foundation that is magic 💓 They also extended their shade range and I’m such an odd shade of neutral but I found my perfect match in this foundation and I’ve gotten tons of my friends obsessed with their formula! It’s genius Swipe 👉🏽 to see my everyday makeup look 🥳 L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation

IL MAKIAGE — worth the hype??
Who else is getting this ad pop up on their feed?! 🙋🏼‍♀️ Well, guess what!! I caved!! LOL! Here’s my first impression: IL MAKIAGE - WOKE UP LIKE THIS $44 ($5 trial price. If you like it, you keep it and the full price gets charged onto your card. If you don’t, send it back and that’s that!) Pros: 🥳 Hydrating, natural finish 🥳 They got my shade right (though I was highly, HIGHLY doubtful they would because the quiz was so lame, lol) 🥳 This beautiful B HAS A PUMP!! 🥳 This blended out soooo seamlessly 🥳 Buildable coverage* Cons: 🤔 Medium coverage (which I honestly prefer, but could be a con for some of y’all) 🤔 *So I’m not one to aim for full coverage, but I attempted to apply a little more product on my discoloration and current breakout and the foundation separated where I attempted this. Something to keep in mind 🤔 The price! I’m not a big fan of foundations or make up to be over $15 lol but maybe this isn’t a con for y’all 🤷🏼‍♀️ Just to clarify, this is a first impression. Will update down below. 😁 Xoxo Xenia On my face: Primer: L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro Glow Lock Primer Works well for the most part. Ingredient alert: dimethicone! Holds the make up in place, but takes a while to set... or maybe it’s just my skin rejecting this B? Concealer: smashbox - Studio Skin Flawless 24 Hour Concealer Goes on and blends flawlessly... then creases. I’ve tried applying extra moisturizer/eye cream; I’ve tried baking; I’ve tried just setting it with powder; I’ve tried not setting it. I’m open to suggestions. 🥺 Blush: MILANI - MILANI Baked Blush Beautiful, pigmented... still trying to figure out how to apply the right amount if you can’t tell. Lol y’all makin’ me blush to👏🏼day👏🏼!! ☺️😂 Highlight: MAYBELLINE - FaceStudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter Love! Though super glittery. 😬 Eyeshadow: tarte - Tarteist PRO Amazonian Clay Palette Applies and blends out nice. Dark shades aren’t so dark. Glitters are beautiful! Mascara: L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Primer Definitely helps make my lashes look longer and thicker prior to mascara application! I just dislike an extra step. Lol L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara Love this!! Lashes multiply, thicken, and lengthen! Buttt, the formula is too wet and my lashes lose its curl. (FYI: I have long, straight lashes and need to curl prior to application.) Brows: ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Pomade FAVE!! Eyeliner: IL MAKIAGE - Inkliner Nothing special here... felt tip liner that applies patchy and smudges when I smile. Typical for me with how my eyes work. Lips: it Cosmetics - Vitality Lip Flush 4-In-1 Reviver Lipstick Stain FAVE! e.l.f. - Lip Plumping Gloss Not the best, doesn’t necessarily plump. But I personally like it! Love the cooling affect.
My go to mascaras!
I have naturally long lashes but with these products my lashes are so long they literally touch my eyebrows! I first put on the L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Lash Primer . I think this makes a HUGE difference compared to when I wear mascara without it. It just makes my lashes so much longer and fuller I love it! My everyday go to mascara is the tarte - Maneater Mascara . It’s not a thick full brush like the better than sex mascara. I feel like the small individual bristles grab every lash and keep me from clumping. The new one to my stash that I’m also starting to love is the L'ORÉAL - Bambi Eye Mascara . The bristles are comparable to the maneater and they really grab each individual lash. What is your favorite mascara?

Underrated Ingredient in skincare Part 1 : Panth
Panthenol is one of those ingredients you don't hear often like Niacinamide or AHAs and BHAs. Or even close, Hyaluronic acid. If you go through products you use in your daily life you'll find Panthenol (Vitamin B5) in many of them. ✨What is Panthenol? Panthenol is Alcohol analog of Pantothenic acid hence a provitamin of Vitamin B5. It's derived organically from plants and animals. Panthenol takes the form of either a white powder or a transparent oil at room temperature. You will sometimes see panthenol listed under one of its other names on ingredients list, including: -dexpanthenol -D-pantothenyl alcohol -butanamide -alcohol analog of pantothenic acid -provitamin B-5 When absorbed into the body, panthenol becomes vitamin B-5. Panthenol is found in our body already so it has so many other benefits when taken internally or applied topically. ✨What does it do? Panthenol AKA vitamin B5 is known as a humectant meaning it draws moisture from your surroundings into your skin and trapping it to increase moisture level when applied topically. It's also an emollient, a moisturizing agent that soothes and softens skin which is why it's added in many moisturizers and creams. It's an amazing ingredient when it comes to skincare, it shows other properties too such as anti-inflammatory. It can help improve skin’s hydration, elasticity, and smooth appearance. It also soothes: red skin, inflammation, little cuts or sores like bug bites or shaving irritation. Panthenol helps with wound healing, as well as other skin irritations like eczema. It's also benefitial for Hair and nails to make them strong, shiny and soft. ✨Is it safe? Both the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Commission on Cosmetic Ingredients have approved panthenol for use in cosmetics. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) classifies panthenol as “possibly safe” for general topical applications and nasal sprays. And it’s listed as “likely safe” for topical use by children. ✨Bottom outtake: Panthenol is a star ingredient for cosmetic formulators and chemists but it's not widely known. It's a great humectant so if you Pair it with Hyaluronic acid or Glycerin it works the best! This is why @theordinary Hyaluronic acid serum The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 has Vitamin B5 added to it's formulation of Hyaluronic acid product. Also the @innisfree Panthenol 10 Toner innisfree - Truecare Panthenol 10 Moisture Skin is an amazing toner to start your morning and nighttime routine with! I found @tonymoly Vita Moisture Ampoule TONYMOLY - Vital Vita 12 Ampoule Moisture also has Vitamin B8 (Biotin) along with humectants like Hyaluronic acid. I really like Vitamin B5 in my skincare regimen, it's as good as Hyaluronic acid or the best when paired with it!L'ORÉAL - Hydra Fresh Toner Do you like Panthenol?

Mascara before& after Pictures
Mascara before& after Pictures are back for good! using loreal telescopic mascara 🔭❤️ - Review: The wand is so slim and different than any I‘ve seen before. It coats every single lash and makes them extremely long without any clumps etc. It’s the best mascara out there if you want extremely long, seperated and almost spidery looking lashes ❤️ It doesn‘t smudge either 😍 don‘t buy it if you want lots of volume tho

Pro-Xylane is plant-based sugar molecule originally developed by Loreal i. According to research, it is a sugar-protein hybrid made from xylose. Pro-xylane promises to stimulate the production of glycoaminoglycans (GAGs), fluids that nourish collagen and elastin and defend skin against water loss. As we age, we lose GAGs — and, consequently, our skin's elasticity and volume.It is proved to have the effect of helping to treat signs of aging like wrinkles and loss of firmness. As skin ages, the collagen production starts to slow causing skin support structure to breakdown. Pro-xylane here works within skin surface to boost collagen and elastin production to help rebuild skin from within. L'ORÉAL - Revitalift Laser Renew Super Serum This revitalization serum is formulated tith hylyronic acid and pro-xylane. One of the greatest ingredients here is pro-xylane with a concentration of 6% that can help to collagen in lasting and production. The whole line of Loreal Revitalift product is designed as treatment formulated with pro-xylane for aging skin. 3 main product benefits are to repair wrinkles, redensify and re-firm. This serum and moisturizer  comes in a generous 1.6Fl oz dual chamber bottle with a large pump button for easy dispensing. It's lightweight and gentle on the skin, quickly absorbed by the skin giving a moisturized hydrated look. The pump acts funny sometimes so that is why I only gave it 4 stars. HR HELENA RUBINSTEIN - Replasty Age Recovery Age Recovery Night Cream is marketed to have the “a "band-aid effect" texture in a creamy balm that transforms when applied to the skin and wraps it in soothing comfort.” It is really pricy as a night cream. I heisted for a long time before making the purchase. I tried it once in my girl’s place and abosulytely love it. After did some research in the ingredients, I finally placed the order. It has 30% pro-xylane recommended for weakend skin, signs of aging and cosmetic surgery procedures. I really do love this product! It helps my skin stay supple and moisturized. I purchased this after getting a sample of it. It has a great scent. It goes on smooth without being sticky. From pricing, Helena is not recommended. Loreal is less in concentration 6% vs 30% but only 1/15 the price. L’Oréal wins 👍
