Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation Dupe
Are you worried about investing in high end foundations that may not be worth all the hype? You're not alone! Investing in luxury cosmetics can be a rewarding feeling especially for beauty lovers, however is it really always worth it? One of the most talked about foundations of 2020 has been the Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation and like most I could wait to swap my drugstore finds for one of the most popular products on the market. As someone with normal skin type I really lucked out. I have no problem trying to find foundations to control oil or offer hydration so I was excited to see how the Backstage foundation would wear. Backstage is described as the Dior makeup artists' secret weapon to create an instantly flawless complexion with ultra-buildable coverage, from a natural nude glow to high-coverage perfection. The formula is meant to be fluid and waterproof with a second skin-like finish. While I agree with all the claims for the Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation I started to notice this formula reminded me of my all time favorite drugstore foundation, Covergirl Clean Fresh Skin Milk. Covergirl Skin Milk aims to blur imperfections and even skin tone creating a glowing, dewy finish. The hydrating aspect of this formula is very comparable to Dior Backstage although Dior never claims to be hydrating. The fluidity of the Covergirl formula really allows you to build up the coverage, transitioning from a no makeup makeup look to a flawless yet natural skin appearance. If you are looking for the flawless model skin Covergirl is a great option for just under $10.00 at select retailers compared to Diors $40.00. There are many similarities such as formula, wear, and texture that will definitely make you think twice before spending 4x the amount for something… identical!

Look well-rested and glowy in 10 minutes! ✨
Okay so, I woke up at 2:00 am to watch my boys (BTS) perform live and although I had a great time and loved watching them on stage my face shows I got like 4 hours of sleep, so I thought this is the perfect time to show how to look like you actually got a healthy 8 hrs of sleep and looking fresh 😌 Let’s start with skin, I went with one of my favorite products to bring back light to my face. The ohii - Wake Up Pen reminds me of the infamous YSL Touché éclat, but it’s of course not as esspensive 😇 this universal highlight can be used as an eye brightened and on the high points of the face as good ol’ highlighter. It’s vegan, and perfect to fake that fresh-faced look I adore. After applying that I went in with my one and only DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer I’ve raced about this so much, y’all know I love this. Next I used the ohii - Cheek Smudge in Flush to fake a rosy glow. This dewy blush is perfect to add glow and color to the cheeks. Flush is a soft rose pink that I think looks really cute on my yellow/neutral undertone. I love that this is very easy to build up, it doesn’t move my foundation or concealer and it looks super glowy and fresh. I also used the KALEIDO COSMETICS - Glow Balm - Lip & Cheek Jelly in watermelon on the high points of my cheeks to add more dewiness, I have swatches of this on another post if you wanna check it out! I did my brows with my favorite pen, the Lime Crime - Bushy Brow Precision Pen its the best brow pen I’ve tried, super easy to use! And also used the ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Clear Brow Gel I’m honestly not such a huge fan of this brow gel but I couldn’t find my Elf wow brow so I went with this. It leaves my brows looking too stiff for my taste. For mascara I used another favorite, the wet n wild - Mega Length Mascara this is such a lovely everyday mascara. It lengthens and lifts lashes beautifully, I have the waterproof version and it doesn’t smudge on me or flakes. It’s one of the best mascara I’ve used ever. And it’s less than $5. I also used my peripera - Ink Pocket Shadow Palette I cant recall the name of this quad right now, and it’s only written in Korean, but I used the bottom right shadow. Lastly, for lips I used the Kosas - Wet Lip Oil Gloss I like this because it looks really pretty on, it feels very conditioning and long lasting and I really love the scent. It smells like orange bread with vanilla icing to me, and it reminds me of my childhood so maybe it’s just the nostalgia factor that does it for me. I do think, however, that is a bit pricey for the amount of product you get. Kosas reasoning for this is that this is a lip treatment and a ‘gloss’ second, but I’ve found a similar product that is like $10 cheaper and performs about the same. And that’s that! #CheriePartner
Super simple bedazzled eye makeup 🤩
I... 😳 didn’t think I’d like this look as much as I do! I think we’ve seen a rise of editorial makeup worn as everyday makeup since Euphoria aired and I’m 100% here for it. I’ve seen all my friends on Instagram experiment with cool colored liners, rhinestones and glitter and I am, as always, late to the party but guess what? I’ve arrived 😌 I got some rhinestones at a beauty supply and got down to business, I had no idea what I wanted to do, I just started placing the stones on my eyes (yes, on the hood of my hooded eyes 😜) using my trusted Sugarpill - Duo Eyelash Adhesive to stick them on and this is what came out! It’s such a cute, simple look in my opinion. I actually would wear this to go out, specially since wearing a mask pretty much hides the rest of your makeup, I feel a statement eye like this works great. I decided to keep the rest of my makeup pretty light, I thought it looked kinda model-esque and I love 😍 for complexion I used this winner trio: e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer + DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer + UNDONE BEAUTY - LIP TO CHEEK 3-IN-1 CREAM PALETTE And my favorite lip duo: COLOURPOP - Crème Lux Lipstick in 21 questions and KYLIE COSMETICS - KYLIE COSMETICS High Gloss in Krystal. So, how did I do? Would you wear a rhinestone eye look out? 😌✨ #CherieCreator #CheriePartner

Like it’s 1996 🦋✨👄
Nothing screams 90s makeup to me like frosted shadow and roller ball lip gloss ✨ Now I was only a bebe during the 90s being born in ‘93, but I do have memories of my younger aunts, that would often babysit for my mom and her lewks 🙌 one of them was more into grungey makeup, think brown lips, matte skin and thin but natural brows and my younger aunt was def more into glossy lips and pastel hued shimmery shadows. I spent all morning looking at old Delia*s catalogs and came across this catalog from 1996 and there it was, what I consider the epitome of 90s girly makeup! A soft lilac frosty shadow, barely there peachy blush and glossy lips 😌 I gathered inspiration from it to create the look you see here, using the products I’ve listed below: 🦋 DIOR - Forever Skin Glow Foundation & DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer I decided to go in with both foundation and concealer, I usually only use concealer but I felt since 90s makeup wasn’t big on highlighter or even dewy skin was a thing like it is now, so it get right. 🦋 wet n wild - Mega Length Mascara fave mascara, you already know 🙌 🦋 Glossier. - Wowder Weightless Finishing Powder I’m trying to use up this powder, and I like it because it doesn’t leave me looking cakey. 🦋 essence - Satin Touch Blush essence makes some of my favorite blushes! These are a true satin finish that looks so pretty on the skin. 🦋 Glossier. - Lidstar Glistening Eye Glow Idk why, but I kinda remember having something similar to lidstar when I was young. I like that these are easy to slap on and go. And the subtle wash of color with the shimmer is so pretty to me. 🦋 .INC. - Roller Baby Lip Gloss now i very specifically remember my aunts using roller ball lip glosses throughout all of my childhood! These are so nostalgic to me, i remember them lending their precious cherry scented lip gloss to me when I was little and it was amazing 😌 ah non-traumatic childhood memories, we love those. And that’s that! What is a trend you remember from the 90s? Or that you wore during the 90s? 🍒 #CherieCreator #CheriePartner
My #1 foundation for radiant, perfected skin 🌟
*yes, I’m wearing the same top as yesterday and my hair is just a mess sorry 🥵 Fall is here! And for some reason I feel like switching to fuller coverage makeup and more matte lewks when it starts to get chillier. Now this foundation is not exactly matte but it’s very buildable and you can get a really nice, full coverage yet radiant finish with this baby. It’s not fully matte nor dewy, it is just some satiny goodness that I think is perfect for fall and winter 😌 I have combination, dehydrated skin and the DIOR - Forever Skin Glow Foundation is just amazing for me, it even has rosehip extract as an ingredient. Rosehip is one of my favorite ingredients in skincare, let me tell you, it is just as good in foundation. I could go on and on about how good this is, but I’ll just leave it here. Oh! I’ll also add I found my perfect shade, I wear 1W and as a Mexican woman, sometimes it’s hard finding foundation that matches my neutral/warm undertones. Most foundations I’ve used in the past pulled either too pink or orange on me, this one is absolutely perfect and I adore it.

J’adore (Lorac) Noir
Too Faced - Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer This is the best primer out there regardless of what the marketing and awards say. WANDER BEAUTY - Mile High Club Volume and Length Mascara I had my eyes dilated and my mascara did not smudge or run from all the drops. I was impressed. It has a tendency to get a little crunchy as the day goes on but that could be because I apply 3 coats. LORAC - PRO Palette Noir I have always been a fan of these shadows and thought they were underrated. Noir is their new formulation and when I dipped my brush into the pan I was shocked. These shadows are creamy, intensely pigmented, apply like a dream and don’t kick up eyeshadow dust. Run, do not walk and get this palette. These shadows are comparable to luxury shadows. Lots of neutrals but fun neutrals. I can’t wait to spend more time with this palette. I only used one shade for this look because I was trying to keep things simple. DIOR - BACKSTAGE Glow Face Palette in Rose Gold. They give a lovely subtle glow to the cheeks. They are very soft so be careful with them. Mine arrived with one of the colors broken in half. The beauty of it, and also the eyeshadow, did not show up in my pictures. Sometimes lighting just isn’t on your side. I have wanted this highlighter palette for awhile and I am glad I own it. If I could do it again, I would pass on it though given the cost. UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation in T1N. I love shaking this foundation before application. Does anyone else enjoy that? Two pumps covers my whole face. It has a medium consistency and I apply by hand. I have stopped using the shape tape because I didn’t like the texture. This foundation provides enough coverage right now and does an excellent job of evening out my complexion. It also sets without powder or spray which is nice on asthma days. OFRA - OFRA Lip Gloss in Love. Mixing in another texture and brightening up my face with this nice pink coral lip gloss. It is only a little sticky and feels great on. It has a nice slip. So that is what would be my 10 minute makeup look except as a disabled person everything takes me twice as long. Do you have a palette you are looking forward to buying? Also, again, the lighting is off for the pictures. Sorry!!!
Declutter With Me! POWDER HIGHLIGHTER 💖✨
What I’m Keeping: MAC - Mineralize Skinfinish Highlight Face Powder in Soft & Gentle This is a classic, classic highlighter. It’s the product that made me fall in love what highlighter. The shade is a perfect champagne color that works for my skin tone whether I’m super pale or tanner over the summer. It adds the perfect wash of shimmery champagne to my cheeks and builds up from a sheer wash of color to a blinding highlight perfect for a night out. flesh - Flesh to Flesh Highlighting Powder in Jump This is my favorite “no shimmer” highlighter. The formula is just so smooth that when applied to the cheeks, you look like you applied a cream or balm highlight- not a powder! The shade is also a beautiful champgne color that goes with almost every single look and it also looks stunning on the tops of the shoulders, collarbones, and even down the legs if you’re feeling extra! FENTY BEAUTY - Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Mean Money/Hustla Baby I love that this highlighter comes with a more subtle shade, actually quite similar to Flesh Beauty’s where it’s zero shimmer and all shine, and a more blingy shade that has a little more shimmer and pigment. It’s perfect for customizing your glow and both look beautiful on the lids too! DIOR - BACKSTAGE Glow Face Palette This is just such a classic product too- I love all four shades on the cheeks and on the eyes as eyeshadow! The lightest gold shade has a little more shimmer and sparkle than the rest, which also makes it a beautiful eyeshadow topper! The other shades are smoother and with less shimmer, they look creamy on the skin instead. What I’m Decluttering: BECCA - Limited Edition Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter It’s a super unique shade in that it looks gold under most lighting but sometimes flashes a peachy pink. It’s hard to apply this as a blush because the gold looks off on the cheeks but using it as a highlighter and having it flash peachy pink so high on the cheekbones is weird too. Lovely formula and shade but it just isn’t functional for my style of makeup. COLOURPOP - Gimme More Highlighter Palette I remember obsessing over this highlighting palette when it first came out, but overtime and after trying so many more powder highlighters, I just feel like I’ve found better shades. The formula is still buttery and beautiful but I honestly just use one shade from this palette (Top row, middle pan) and I have found a similar shade elsewhere (MAC Soft & Gentle).

Dior Lip Plumping Gloss 👄
DIOR - Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss I got as a gift from my husband and it quickly became a must have in my makeup bag. This is my favorite lip plumping gloss, it’s not sticky and leaves your lips feeling soft. The color is 010 Holo Pink but there are over 10 different shades to choose from. When applying this shade It’s sheer and leaves your lips shimmering, it is perfect for layering and every day use. It’s pricey at $34.00 but completely worth it, I will be repurchasing. #cherieCreator
Favorite Dior Lip Products 💋
Of all the makeup products that I own, lip products are by far what I have the most of. There's so many different types - lip stick, lip gloss, lip stains - and sooo many finishes - glossy, matte, satin, you get the point. I'm not super picky when it comes to lip products either, if it looks good, doesn't taste like gasoline, and isn't uncomfortable to wear then I'll keep it around. But if I'm paying a pretty penny, like with the products from Dior, then I do have some expectations so let's get into my favorites from the brand. 1. DIOR - Addict Lip Maximizer Plumping Gloss perfect for a super glossy, plump look. The shades are sheer and look great on their own or layered over another product. I find it super moisturizing and that it lasts really well. It retails for $34. 2. DIOR - Addict Stellar Lip Gloss an ultra glossy gloss. It's more pigmented that the Lip Maximizer and the finish is more of a mirrored gloss. It's not sticky, layers well and is super lightweight. It retails for $30. 3. DIOR - Lip Glow Oil is the most glossy of the bunch, it's also the heaviest on the lips, and the most moisturizing of the three. Of the three I use this more like a balm then a gloss. It reacts to the moisture levels in the lips for a custom color. It retails for $34. #CherieCreator

Baby’s first Makeup post🌷🙊🍡
I used to always do the same look for work or hanging out with friends because I was really comfortable with it. Sound familiar? I’m the queen of hitting the pan on a beige shimmer eyeshadow time & time again, so during the beginning of quarantine I wanted to push myself to use all the colorful cosmetics I’ve bought impulsively over the years. In every photo I’m wearing CHANEL - Le Correcteur de Chanel Longwear Concealer in 10 & CHANEL - LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW Sheer Powder in shade: 20 Lol my container is beyond busted don’t hate... I purchased this in January 2019 & I still haven’t run out. I’ve repurchased the concealer 3 times now, it’s the first concealer I’ve ever found to match my skin flawlessly with shade & texture. *I haven’t been wearing makeup at all lately, but since I started using this concealer & powder in 1/15/19 instead of a full face of foundation, my skin got a lot clearer. 🎀SOFT PINK LOOK: I used a small amount of URBAN DECAY - 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil shade: Woodstock towards the outer edge & diffused the color with the Gucci powder shadow GUCCI - Magnetic Color Shadow Mono in 090-Tourmaline My favorite curling mascara GIVENCHY - Phenomen’eyes Mascara in shade: 1-deep black—— my ultimate favorite is the dark brown shade I can’t seem to find anymore, but this formula is awesome! Holds my curl, adds length& always looks natural, not clumpy. Used it in every look🖤 I also used ARMANI beauty - Fluid Sheer Glow Enhancer in 08 -my favorite buildable highlighter blush that I’ve used for years & still haven’t emptied. I used it in every look too💗 Finished withDIOR - Diorshow Brow Styler Ultra-Fine Precision Brow Pencil in 002- dark brown to add a little definition. 🐾KITTEN EYE WITH PINK MASCARA: I’m really not good at anything eyeliner related so I was proud of this haha... FirstToo Faced - Sketch Marker Liquid Art Eyeliner in black on a prepped eyelid (for me that’s just conceal & powder) Then I used the Givenchy mascara on the top lashes & hot pink mascara on the bottom lashesDIOR - Addict It-Lash Volumizing Mascara shade: 872 No brow filling for this look, just added the ESTĒE LAUDER - Pure Color Love Cooling Highlighter in 002- Sultry Shine over the Armani liquid highlighter & one of my favorite glosses DIOR - Lip Glow Oil shade: 001 pink 💨420 LOOK: Wanted to have some fun with this look since I was just gonna hang at home alone... I used a really old TooFaced eyeshadow😬a duo called Fantasy Island🏝 On the outer third of my eyelid I used ARMANI beauty - Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow in shade: 8- Flannel, this color is really unique & the camera doesn’t do it justice. It’s a gorgeous smokey metallic mauve. I finished with same gloss, mascara & brow tool.
Lip Oil Glow ✨🤍 ✨ @clarinsofficial @clarinscanada This lip oil is so glossy and hydrating. It also lasts a really long time throughout the day. The shade doesn’t really show up on my lips but I still love wearing it on its own or on top of lipstick for some extra glow. It also smells amazing like raspberry candy! ✨ @diormakeup Lip Glow Oil in Berry feels amazing on the lips. Super hydrating and adds a great shine on the lips. This shade adds a subtle berry tint on my medium skin tone. I love wearing it on its own or over top of a lip liner/ lipstick.

My Go-To Lipsticks for
Daily Life & Formal: Dior 999 Satin DIOR - Rouge Dior Lipstick If you ask me which lipstick is classic, I would list Dior 999 for sure. Actually there are many different types of 999, like matte or liquid. The one I got is the 999 Satin. The pigment is true red, easy to apply with lasting wear. Also, this long-wear lipstick delivers comfort and color without feathering or drying lips. The texture is more moist than 999 Matte. I would apply a thin layer for daily life. The color is strong, a thin layer is enough for daily needs. If I need to go to some formal occasions, a thick layer would be prefect. Party & Formal: cle de peau 512 clé de peau BEAUTÉ - CLÉ DE PEAU BEAUTÉ Lipstick This is my first rose red color lipstick. I do not use rose red usually, the color is too pink for me. But the 512 is really pretty. Velvet texture makes the lipstick luxurious on my lips, and easy to apply and not sticky. The lipstick envelopes luminous color and rich lasting moisture, and leaves a silk, semi-matte finish. I love to use it in fall and winter. This is a great lipstick for party and formal occasions. Everyday needs: Housglass If Only HOURGLASS - Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick First, I have to say that I love the package of this lipstick!!! It is really special and easy to recognize, thin and long. It looks soooooo different with other lipsticks. Also, I like the name of it, If Only. This is a deep rose color, or I like to say this is a dusty rose. Also, this lipstick delivers saturated, long-wearing color with a satin finish. The sleek gold applicator is really thin, it is easier to apply on correct spots where you want. The color is gentle and elegance, it absolutely a great choice for daily needs. I love to mix lipsticks, which means apply few layers with different colors of lipsticks to create a new color tone. Try it!

Blush, highlighter, bronze, all you want are in this palette!
DIOR - Backstage Eyeshadow Palette-Rosewood Neutrals This is my First Dior Backstage Palette. I have brown eyes and pale skin and every color is flattering and can be mixed with another. I’m just as happy with this one as I was with the color#cool neutrals. This palette will be a perfect go-to when time is not on my side. And it's very versatile，I can use it very flexibly, treat it like any powder palate I want to put it on my face. These all-in-one eye palettes have everything you need to prime, shade, and highlight. It includes an eye primer that reinforces shadow hold and enhances the look of pigment, and eight shades designed to blend beautifully and be used as either eyeshadow or liner. To for a natural look: I always apply a neutral shade to the entire eyelid, then add a deeper shade blended around the upper lash line to create soft dimension. Then Highlight by applying a lighter shade under the eyebrow arch and to the inner corner to open up the eyes. The prime can also work as a concealer for the eyes. And it's easy to blend out.This palette has neutral rose and nude shades, as well as two skinned shades. I have many nude color blush, I also found a nude pink color on this plate, and the texture is fine. And sometimes I use the SCULPTING POWDER mix the nude one when I do some nude-pink make up. The shimmers aren’t too shimmery just perfect not glittery. At least in the cool neutral palette. The overall quality is great though. And I love the small size and minimalist packaging. The primer is very emollient, and it led to creasing and transfer. All in all a perfect travel palette as the primer is built in. Omitting the primer and giving another shadow in its place would have made this rank higher. I’m most impressed with the mattes and satins vs shimmers in both pallets.The shadows are lovely, and very easy to blend. But I will say that the two mid tone Matt shades are a little similar to each other. Anyway, I was able to apply my eye makeup very quickly and achieve a great blend very fast. If had to compare it, I'd say it's in the Chanel and color-pop zone .(the texture) I think the quality of the product is directly proportional to the price. The colors are beautiful. Blends beautifully, and you can get a summer full look or/and a winter look with these colors. I definitely 10/10 recommend it.
Fave EyeShadow Palette
Right now my current fave eyeshadow palette is the Dior Backstage Eyeshadow Palette in “Warm Neutrals”. This is an all in one primer & shadow palette. It includes mattes and shimmers that blend like a charm. I went to purchase this in Sephora but had to get it online. Anytime they don’t have anything in store make sure you have them order the product there for you because you’ll get free shipping. If you do go to the Sephora app, they have a feature where you can try this line of palettes on. I’m a sucker for a Smokey eye, I either do my whole eye or don’t wear any shadow at all. I don’t really have an “in between” or “natural look” eyeshadow look. Typically I use black for my smokey eye, but this winter I have been using the dark brown in this palette, creating a warmer look and I’ve been loving it. It has wonderful pigmentations, and they are long lasting. I would actually say that there are more than 8 shadows in this palette because, once you start mixing tones you create beautiful new colors. Is it worth $49? In my opinion you get what you pay for and I think yes, I can see this lasting me a long time. I love Dior & need to buy the face & body primer next... The only negative thing I have to say about this palette (which is why I’m giving it 4 stars) would be that the eyeshadow residue gets into the primer and I don’t like that( kinda messy). DIOR - Backstage Eyeshadow Palette-Rosewood Neutrals
🌙💤Current Nighttime routine
🌚This is my basic night routine at the moment, even though I’m still considering some new products to possibly add or swap out... Feel free to ask me any questions in the comments💕 I use the products in the following order: YVES SAINT LAURENT - Top Secrets Universal Makeup Remover Balm in Oil First part of my double-cleanse. I haven’t worn makeup since the beginning of quarantine, but it’s still really necessary to break down all the sunscreen I wear. This is a nice cleansing balm, it’s very silky & light compared to others, & has a lovely scent. I haven’t tested it yet for removing makeup though. fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash A favorite of mine, I did a full review of this product in a previous post🍓I love this gentle exfoliating cleanser! DIOR - Hydra Life Balancing Hydration 2 in 1 Sorbet Water Check out my review of this hydrating, prebiotic toner in a previous post. MAY COOP - Raw Sauce 🍁My holy grail essence, it’s 93% maple extract. Check out my recent post for my full review & ingredient breakdown. Sulwhasoo - First Care Activating Serum Limited Edition Such an amazing serum! I need to do a more detailed review soon. ESTĒE LAUDER - Perfectionist CP+R Wrinkle Lifting/Firming Serum I don’t use this every night... it’s actually a great daytime product because it’s matte, smoothing & pore perfecting. Honestly it makes a great (but expensive) makeup primer! fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer Just did a review on this night cream, feel free to check it out. I just emptied it, so instead I used: NARS - Aqua Gel Luminous Mask This is really great product to relieve irritated skin. It has a lot of marine extracts. I did a full review of this in a previous post💙🦪This product really impressed me! Finally I’ll finish my routine with a decadent lip balm LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Also previously did a full review of this new Gummy Bear scented lip sleeping mask & the corresponding lip glowy balm🧸💜so moisturizing!!! ☁️goodnight beauties☁️
Current lil daytime routine⛅️🥱🍓💦🌹✨
I’m always trying new things & samples, but this is my basic routine for the AM🧡 Feel free to ask me any questions in the comments! I use the products in the following order: fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash My favorite exfoliating cleanser! There’s a full review in a previous post if you wanna check it out🍓 DIOR - Hydra Life Balancing Hydration 2 in 1 Sorbet Water A great toner I reviewed in my last post. Sulwhasoo - First Care Activating Serum I did a first impressions review of this not too long ago... I am still totally loving it. I now crave the fresh herbaceous scent that I wasn’t sure about at first. I find this to be working really well with my skin, always calming & soothing. I still feel like I haven’t been using it long enough (less than a month) to speak on anti aging benefits. Expect a more thorough review in the future, but I can solidly say I love this Hanbang (traditional Korean herbal medicine) skincare product. fresh - Rose & Hyaluronic Acid Deep Hydration Moisturizer 🌹I’ve used this for a while, but I’m on the lookout for something new. This moisturizer leaves skin pretty shiny but I love the way it feels. Cooling & refreshing, with a pretty strong rose scent. I may be having a slight reaction to it when I apply it though. I noticed it makes my light warm toned skin very pink right after, only for a little bit, but it doesn’t happen when I rub in other products, so it’s not physical. I read a review with a customer experiencing the same issue chalking it up to the rose extract. I have always loved rose extract & don’t recall having issues before... just something to consider. SHISEIDO - Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum Face Sunscreen SPF 42 I’ve used this face sunscreen for years. There are some better options perhaps... now that I want to switch over to fully mineral sunscreen (this has zinc, but also chemical sunscreen.) Nonetheless this has always kept me from being burnt, never irritated my eyes (initially what landed me on this particular sunscreen because everything else I tried hurt my eyes at some point) I like shaking it up, the thin texture is easy to apply & leaves a matte finish. I actually feel like this has helped clear up my skin at times, I recommend for acne sufferers. Has a tiny bit of a white cast, but not bad at all. ARMANI beauty - Fluid Sheer Glow Enhancer I apply this to my cheeks for a very angelic & natural glow over my sunscreen☁️💗( I use shade : 08) clé de peau BEAUTÉ - UV Protective Lip Treatment Broad Spectrum SPF 30 I did a full review on this recently...

This is everything that I use (though I alternate most of these things, some are daily use) for my face/neck. Does anyone else use any of these? I’m obsessed with The Ordinary for the value CosRx for the quality, and also masking rn. I usually mask 3x a week now that outside is closed and I switch between sheet, overnight, and modeling. Though I’m looking for a peeling or clay mask for my very large t zone pores. Any recommendations?

This has been my go to perfume for years - since about 2009. It holds notes of bitter almond, caraway spice, sambac jasmine, cinnamon, tuberose, vanilla, musk, mosses and jucarunda wood. It is indulgent, arrogant, bewitching, seductive and warm. A beautiful perfume for winter. 10/10 DIOR - Hypnotic Poison
Everyday lipsticks! 💄 Since I was in highschool, the one beauty thing that I felt was most important was lippies. Lipbalms, liptints, lipsticks or lipgloss really made a difference back then, it was all about red rosy lips 🙌🏻 I can call it for an addiction maybe, because it’s still the same for me now 😅 These are a few of the lipsticks that I tend to reach out to a lot. Third picture is a swatch ❤️

Over-Exfoliated Skin: What To Do NextOver-exfoliation has a plethora of symptoms, ranging from redness and inflammation, tightness of the skin, dryness and flakiness, irritation bumps, rashes, breakouts, and a stinging sensation. With the rise in popularity of at-home chemical exfoliation, it’s easier than ever before to take it a step too far. Everyone is trying out TikTok-famous products like The Ordinary’s AHA 30% and BHA 2% Peeling Solution without an understanding of how strong it really is. Chemical exfoliation is all the rage now, due to its ability to clear up acne, even out the skin tone, and give you a glowy look. But none of these things will happen if you don't exfoliate properly!Sep. 29
