He want that cake cake cake 🍰 🎂
Hey Cherie Fam! 🍒 I attempted to do a Christmas look today with the cake palette from Glamlite, but I failed miserably. I used the shade “red velvet” thinking it would be red, but it turned out to be a fuchsia. My lids are supposed to be green, but it turned out to be teal so now this look turned to be a cotton Candy look 😢 Anyway, this is a great rainbow palette 🌈 but if you’re looking for a true red, there isn’t a shade in here. The shimmers aren’t a true green either. It’s not exactly primary colors of a rainbow palette, but I love the formula. To achieve this look, I used: 1️⃣ Red velvet and packed it all over the crease then I blended it 2️⃣ I grabbed a smaller brush and dipped in to cranberry to blend the edges of red velvet 3️⃣ I cut my crease and packed avocado all over my lid. This shade is from the burger slider palette 4️⃣ I placed cinnamon on my inner corner 5️⃣ Red velvet, cranberry and raspberry on the lower lash 6️⃣ Mascara and falsies. I used house of lashes in demure lite Check out out my Instagram because I’m doing 12 days of Christmas. I will be posting a look everyday until Christmas. Happy holidays all! Xoxo, Francesca

RATING: BEAUTY SPONGES 😯 #CheriePartner
Hello my loves! You guys seem to love these ratings & I love a good deal when I can find it. So here is my ratings of a few beauty sponges —  beautyblender - Classic Makeup Sponge Pink - this was the innovator of beauty sponges in the makeup community but $20? i could NEVER wrap my head around that but it was the best one for awhile. i didn't really love it & felt it'd dry too quickly so it wasn't really for me. i'm so glad we've moved forward & now drugstore brands are releasing great products! beautyblender - Pro - same energy here. this was what i stuck with for awhile, i do think there's a difference between the two sponges but with this i couldn't tell how dirty it was and i just couldn't trust it! MORPHE - Flawless Beauty Sponge - WAY TOO TOUGH! i haven't used it in awhile i hope they reproduced these because it barely grew & just soaked up all my product. glad i got rid of it! e.l.f. - Total Face Sponge - this was my go-to for the past few months! i really like the flat edge for applying my base. it was great! e.l.f has seriously stepped up their game with sponges. REAL TECHNIQUES - Miracle Complexion Sponge - BOOOOO! sorry i am just not a fan. i was never about this sponge. i've tried it so many times and it's just dry & awkward to use. it's not for me whatsoever. #e.l.f. - Complexion Sponge Trio[products]#[FiveStars] - 🗣check out my first impression on this set. the actually set is the "complexion sponge trio" in purple! i love love love it. i just started but i want to continue with it. super soft & i love that it has three RELIABLE sizes. #L'oréal - Blend Artist Foundation Blender[products]#[FiveStars] - another great one! super soft & has great shape. used this for awhile, only issue is it does tear after a little while. As always, sending love. Thanks for reading. ❤️ #cheriepartner #cheriecreator

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

Affordable makeup sponges!!
I just wanted to share what sponges I use for makeup. I use the ecoTOOLS - Perfecting Blender Duo (the solid green one is from this and the small one got moldy after leaving it under my sink wet and inside a bag for a few days after I forgot about it 😅) and the silvery one is the ecoTOOLS - Total Perfecting Blender -- they come in solid green and green infused with microbial silver. What I love about them is that they're very soft, they distribute product well, and they're not as expensive as the beautyblender - The Original Beautyblender, which are $20 individually. The two pack of the Ecotools ones are $10 and the silvery one is $5, which saves you a lot of $$. Which sponges to use for when: small sponge - concealer, cream blush, blending out small areas large solid sponge - foundation, blending out large areas, applying setting powder microbial silver sponge - sunscreen, thicker creams / liquids, some foundations Hope this helps anyone stuck on which sponges to get for their makeup routine! :)

Which sponge wins?
Are these sponges dupes for the beauty blender? NOPE. Beauty Blender still wins in my book. The only other sponge that I have tried that is just as good is the Real Techniques sponge. beautyblender - The Original Beautyblender It’s the OG for a reason. The most comfy to use. Has the perfect bounce and applies makeup with a flawless finish. Use it wet so your foundation doesn’t absorb into the sponge. $20 DOSE OF COLORS - Seamless Beauty Sponge I didn’t find this sponge “life changing” it didn’t perform significantly better than the Beauty Blender. It has a cool shape and can be a bit more precise than the beauty blender. I like to use this for setting powder, but that’s about it. Wet with water and squeeze out excess water. Use with powder, cream, and liquid. PARABEN FREE | LATEX FREE | DYE FREE | SULFATE FREE | PHTHALATES FREE | CRUELTY FREE $15 MAKEUPDROP - Hybrid Big nope! This sponge has a silicone side and a foam side. You don’t wet this one with water. The silicone sponge was just a phase and I’m glad it’s over... lol. This sponge brought out the worst in my texture. The silicone side was only good for spreading a small amount of foundation across the skin. The actual sponge side did not work well for me. I fortunately got this for $5 for a Birchbox and any more money than $5 and it would have been a waste of money. $20

Beauty blender dupes ✨
The first makeup sponge I used was the beauty blender pro sponge. I loved it so much. I used it every single day to blend my foundations, blushes, and powders. After using it so much it started looking old and I realized I definitely didn’t want to spend $20 for a sponge. I started trying out so many affordable ones and lots of them didn’t work until... Real techniques miracle complexion sponge, when it’s dry it feels slightly stiff but still nice and soft to the touch. When you wet it it becomes super soft. It blends my foundation very well, similar to the beauty blender at a 1/3 of the price! One of my favorite sponges so far! $5.99 and I’ve found these at marshalls and tj maxx for about $3-4! REAL TECHNIQUES - Miracle Complexion Sponge Hank & Henry midori sponge set, I got this sponge set in my boxycharm and I really like it. The set had the large and small sponge. Slighter stiffer than the real techniques but a nice sponge. The small one is perfect for blending on the inner corners or any hard to reach area. The large sponge gets HUGE when it’s wet, great for apply blush in my opinion and anything you want. Even if it’s kinda stiff this is still very soft. Unfortunately online they’re sold separately $14.00 for the large sponge and $9.00 for the small one. HANK & HENRY - Midori Bundle Miss A AOA studio super soft wonder blender, one of the best really affordable sponges I’ve tried. It’s really soft and blends like a dream. Very very slight stiffness when dry but super soft when wet. Haven’t had any problems with this one. $1.55! I didn’t have mines with me so I attached a picture of it. AOA studio - AOA Wonder Blender Last and definitely not least the original beauty blender in pro, super soft to the touch and incredible at blending. The hype is real. $20 beautyblender - Pro If you want to spend $20 every few months then this sponge is worth it, super great! If you’re like me that prefers a more affordable one than these options are great as well. These all feel great on the skin, blend your makeup and at the end of my makeup routine I’ve found that these all look very similar and almost identical to each other. ☺️✨

Easy (five minute!) makeup for ZOOM Meetings
Doing my makeup and feeling put-together is one of my favorite things, however I don’t always have the time or energy to be able to achieve a full-face beat every day. Soft and gentle glam, I use this look when I want to feel ~soft~ and glowy, but only spend minimal time on it. I start with NARS - Radiant Creamy Concealer which I use all over my face, spot concealing redness of pimples, around my nose and lips, tip of my nose, and between my eyebrows. This brightens and evens your skin tone without a full face of foundation. You can use primer if you want, when I do I use a blurring primer like TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer or beautyblender - Pore Minimizing Primer which smooth skin and even look good just on their own. I set with BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder and then move on to my eyes. I use one eyeshadow palette with a few colors, two of my favorites are NATASHA DENONA - Mini Nude Eyeshadow Palette and EM COSMETICS - Limited Edition Divine Skies Eyeshadow Palette which have both mattes and shimmers. Important: they don’t patch! This makes blending a breeze. I put a neutral brown in my crease and outer V, then layer a dark brown in my outer v and smudge on my lower lash line. Adding shimmer is optional, but I usually do. For this I just use my finger and swipe on the lid. All powders for my face bronzer, blush, & highlight applied with one fluffy brush. I apply blush by pinching the powder brush in my fingers to elongate it to place product where I want— my fav is PATRICK TA - Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush which applies smoothly on all skin (prepped or not). I layer with benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer in a 3 shape, and finish with whatever glowing highlight i feel like. In this image it’s OFRA - Nikkietutorials Everglow Highlighter Brow filling is optional, but brushing them up with a gel helps you look awake and youthful with little effort. Finish with mascara and a tinted lip balm or moisturizing lipstick like Glossier. - Generation G Sheer Matte Lipstick or EM COSMETICS - EM Cosmetics Lip Cushion and you’re ready to go in less than ten!

Flawless Base! Makeup for Your Skin but Better
Because I spend so much time and energy getting my skin to look even and glowing on its own, I want my makeup base to enhance rather than hide it. This is why light or medium coverage crème products are my go-to for a flawless base! I start out with a cleansed and moisturized face. If I’m going to be outside I’ll also go in with COOLA - Classic Full Spectrum 360 Sun Silk Drops SPF 30 (which I already have a post about!). It adds the perfect dewy base and has no flashback. I let it set for 15 minutes and then start my makeup. To prime, I use TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer which is heavenly. It doesn’t clog my pores, and leaves my skin hydrated prepped and smooth for my next steps. If I know it will be hot or humid, I also go in with either thebenefit - The POREfessional Face Primer or thebeautyblender - Pore Minimizing Primer on my T-zone; more oily areas. Neither of these pill if layered with the tatcha primer and compliment it beautifully. Next, I go in and spot treat with concealer. I don’t use foundation! I start with NARS - Soft Matte Complete Concealer around my nose and lips, or any other red areas. I use a brush and pat it on the areas I want to cover, let it sit for a minute, and then blend it out with a medium concealer brush. This gives more coverage without having to layer more product! If I still have discoloration or a particularly red or dark pimple, I go over it with a smaller brush using tarte - Shape Tape Concealer as this is very high coverage. Again I let it sit, then blend. Another trick is using creme products to get that lit-from-within glow! For blush, I love Glossier. - Cloud Paint Seamless Cheek Color and liquid blush drops fromEM COSMETICS - Color Drops Serum Blush as both of these blend in effortlessly and look like your own skin! Both of these blushes set themselves without the use of powder. For Highlighter, Charlotte Tilbury - Beauty Highlighter Wand is the best in my opinion. It blends it without looking cakey or fake, but adds the dimension of face tune in real life! This also sets itself and doesn’t require power. If contouring, both KKW BEAUTY - Crème Contour Stick (I use Light 1) and the FENTY BEAUTY - Match Stix Matte Skinstick (I use amber!) layer well with the other creme products. I don’t have issues with patching or pilling, and I enjoy how both sit and feel on the skin as creme contours can feel heavy. When set there is no transfer. I set with BECCA - Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder which I’ve raved about before. No flashback, and keeps the dimensions of the creme products. It doesn’t cake on, but adds another layer of blurring perfection!

RARE BEAUTY FOUNDATION REVIEW!!
Hey guys! I recently bought theRare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!! Here's why: I picked the right shade which is 140C!! I had to play around with the shade finder on Sephora and took a tally to see which shade made sense, plus I picked one that matches my cool undertone. Super important to know your undertone! It's like BUTTER! 🤩💕 So smooth & easy to blend out It has a doe foot applicator instead of a pour and I like that because you can't spill it, plus this foundation goes a long way & the applicator holds so much foundation it's unbelieveable. The doe foot is really well designed and it's really flat, soft, and smooth and I don't have to dip it in the bottle that often to get more foundation which I'm surprised about. When you apply powder, it doesn't cake! It just becomes slightly drier and is smoothed out more. This foundation sets really nicely and when I wore my mask today not much came off and I was super happy about that. Also, I've tried foundations that got cakey before and this one does do a little bit to large pores, but it does depend on the powder you use - I've tried it with 3 and results were different. 🤷🏼‍♀️ But anyway this is a smooth foundation that gets better and is there to stay after you put it on. (it sets well with the URBAN DECAY - All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray ) I have large pores and this product didn't make them seem bigger, it smoothed them out! So crazy to me and this foundation is worth it!! Things to consider: It reminds me of the Glossier. - Perfecting Skin Tintbecause of the formula and Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Weightless Foundation is thicker so don't worry about not getting enough coverage 😂 I think it would be best on any skin type honestly, and I have oily skin and it didn't affect me throughout the day - 12 hr wear, so I think you should consider your skin type and what you use to set. The best tool to use is a sponge, since it's very liquidy and lightweight, so a brush would just soak it all up and wouldn't give as smooth of a finish. Stay healthy folks!! 💁🏼‍♀️🥰

all you need for a flawless face!
it can be easy to feel like you need a hundred products for a flawless makeup application—this is not the case! I have found I can get a perfect base and eyeshadow look with just these 5! beautyblender - Nude first and foremost, there’s nothing like the beauty blender. I’ve tried every “dupe” there is, nothing comes close! you can use this for your foundation, and because of the material and shape it never leaves harsh lines or marks. I ALSO use this for my concealer, so it’s really a great multi use tool! ecoTOOLS - Blending & Bronzing Brush this is my favorite brush for bronzing. because of the stippled bristles, it diffuses the product in a beautiful, natural way. my bronzer never looks too heavy or marked. my favorite brush!! wet n wild - wet n wild Fluffy Blending Brush wet n wild makes some of the best brushes i’ve ever used. they come in a set around the holidays and i also get them for the fluffy + highlight brushes. these absolutely hold their own against more expensive counterparts. if you haven’t tried them yet, do!! lastly, if you use powder blush, a simple blush brush is the final brush you need. that’s it! 5 products, a blended, flawless base. I have probably used over 200 makeup brushes at this point in my life. deciding on these 5 was surprisingly easy. the way I was able to narrow it down was the fact that all of these brushes are multi use. I’ve used the fluffy brush for both eyeshadow AND concealer. the bronzer brush is also wonderful for blush. the blush brush has been used for both highlighter and bronzer when I’ve been in a pinch. the beauty blender of course can be used for foundation, concealer, contour, and liquid blush. if you’re able to, always try to find products that are multi use!! I’ve challenged myself to use less products and these 5 make it totally doable! #cheriepartner #cheriecreator

Reasons to have a brush and a beauty blender for my foundation!
I believe we all have that kind of moment when we cannot find the makeup tool or there are just so many of them which make it hard to choose wisely. It is always smart to prepare two application tools for the similar makeup step and I have to say I really appreciate myself for doing that because it has saved me a lot of time. Also, using the same tool for a long time can wear it out more easily and quickly, and you may have nothing to use if you have just washed it.    The most important step in my everyday makeup is foundation and that’s the one which needs two applicators for me, a makeup sponge and a foundation brush. It is important to invest in them since when you don’t feel like using one tool, the other one will save you from it. For example, when my face is dehydrated and even my moisturising cream can do nothing about it, I will use a wet sponge to apply foundation to prevent more hydration loss. A brush is more suitable when my face feels good and smooth with enough moisturising to provide a seamless, flawless foundation base.   The sponge I use is from beautyblender, a famous makeup sponge brand. It is pricy compared to the drugstore sponge, but it is worthy. It absorbs a lot of water and is super soft on skin. My habit is to squeeze a pump of my foundation and put on my nose, cheek, forehead and chin and then use this beauty blender to gently press the foundation evenly all over my face. In this way, the beauty blender gives a light, comfortable foundation application. Also, when my face is a bit flaky, it will not make it worse like the brush.   My way to use the brush is similar to a sponge, just to put one pump of foundation on my face and gently glide the brush all over my face. The different thing is that I only use it when my face is in a good state with no obvious flakes since the brush will hide some foundation under them and create some patches on face with uneven skin colours. My choice for the brush is Hourglass. The price of this brush is quite high, about two times of the beautyblender sponge, but I think it is worth it. It gives me a very nice feeling when using it, and it is easy to grab in hand with a chic style. The face also looks super even and natural, with no trace of foundation left.    I like both of these two tools and they work so well on my face! I have to say they are great products worth the money.

My 3 Go To Beauty Tools
I’m mainly a skincare person so when I do make-up, I try to keep it to basics as much as possible. When I do go for it, I cannot do it without these 3 tools here. 💕1. IT Cosmetics Unstoppable Powder Brush This brush was a gift from my mom in a set from Ulta and I adore them. First of all, they last forever and they’re a great quality. They are super soft and this one is perfect for after I let my setting powder bake, for wiping off any excess gently and to get a nice smooth look. They’re also easy to clean! I could also use this for bronzer or blush too. Even a highlight really! The key with brushes, especially this one which I use all over my face, is regular cleaning so bacteria doesn’t build up and make skin breakout. I use a cleanser from Sephora that I’ve had for forever that is anti-bacterial and try to do that regularly to maintain the brush as well as my skin health. 💕2. IT Cosmetics Effortless Crease Brush This was another that was in an Ulta set from my mom. Sets are a great way to save on these but these are definitely worth it. I use this one for my eyeshadow and sometimes contour and I adore it. It’s also very soft, versatile, great quality and has lasted me forever. 💕3. Beauty Blender I recently purchased this after losing about 3 other beauty sponges because I figured this is supposed to be the best so might as well commit financially. I also find when I do that, I tend to treat them better 🤣 I’m loving this so far! I purchased it from Sephora and it’s super soft. It’s a bit smaller than I expected but that doesn’t change how I enjoy it. I find I can get bigger and smaller areas with this and I really adore it for smooth concealer and foundation/ CC cream. I know it is supposed to be lightly damp when using it, but I find it works well dry too to be honest! beautyblender - Makeup Sponge Applicator #CheriePartner

It applies my foundation better… brush or sponge
I guess a lot of girls have the same questions as me, what kind of tools could help create a flawless foundation look? Brush, sponge, or even finger? I did a foundation applying test by Artis brush and Beauty Blender sponge. Let’s see which one performs better. Beautyblender Pro Sponge $20 beautyblender - Makeup Sponge Applicator This is a drop shape sponge that can be used in different areas. I use the pointed tip to apply on tiny area like noise side and use the bottom round area over most of my face. When applying foundation, I like to make it wet, which makes the foundation soak into the skin perfectly and leaves an even and smooth application. It is easy to clean and nice to take it during travel as it only occupies a tiny spot in my cosmetic bags. Artis Elite Oval 6 $60 artís - Elite Oval 6 This is a multi-function brush designed to be used with foundation/concealer/highlighter/blush/bronzer/compact powder. But I only use it with foundation. I like the double oval design of it that make the application go on smoothly. The brush is so soft and makes my skin feel nice, which blends foundation flawlessly. It’s very pricy, but I think it is worth every penny, as the design is so unique and the product is great. As shown in the finish look picture, beauty blender sponge creates a more natural look. Artis brush looks like make the foundation have a higher coverage. The sponge is going to absorb some of the foundation. I will need to apply more pumps of foundation if I use the sponge. If I use the brush, I just need a pea size foundation, and it could cover my whole face. Both of them apply foundation better than my fingers. I love both of them! They're both my go-to. If you like the natural look, you can go with the sponge. If you like some coverage, then go with the brush.

Affordable Tools for an Everyday Makeup Look
Hi, So these are the tools that I tend to use for my EVERYDAY look. When I say this, I do not do contouring and do not include eyeshadow tools, and I tend to not use blush unless I go to work (been working from home since COVID, which is why I didn’t add the tool that I use for adding blush). I also mean that these are not the same tools that I use for a fuller (contouring, eyeshadow, etc) makeup look. The tools that I use for that are more expensive and definitely include many more tools. These tools have worked so far, so great with me, so I’m sharing them. ecoTOOLS - Full Powder Brush I’m defenitely thinking of buying other tools to try them out since I love their philosophy! ecoTOOLS’ products are completely vegan, and they are diminishing waste production by increasing the amount of material that is harmful with their introduction of biodegradable paper! This tool particularly feels sturdy and soft, even throughout the multiple washes that it has gone through. This is what I use to add colored powder, since the translucent or setting powder come with their own tool. beautyblender - BCRF I tend to use this to blend the concealer and for those regions that may need a fuller foundation coverage due to some dark spots. The sponge has been great so far, no complains whatsoever. The size is great and has lasted, even with the regular washes. e.l.f. - Selfie Foundation Blurring Brush I love e.l.f. due to the affordability of its products while still delivering pretty good quality! The bristles in this tool feel particularly soft and I do feel that it glides on to your face so smoothly! I do feel that part of the reasoning for why my foundation has lasted so long is because I have used it with this tool. A little goes a long way honestly! It also does give that seamless look!

This is going to sound weird but I prefer the beautyblender - Pro way more than the original. I feel like the pro works better, doesn’t fall apart as fast, and doesn’t get as dirty but that’s all personal feelings. That being said I do really like the Beauty Blender. It’s the OG blending sponge. That being said I don’t think it’s necessarily worth it anymore. $20 for a sponge is really expensive! Honestly the original Real Technique sponges work just as well and they are $5.99. But if you have the money to spend I do really like the beauty blender and I think it does a great job creating a flawless foundation base! It’s very soft.

This Bounce Foundation from be
This Bounce Foundation from beauty blender is my absolute go-to when it comes to long-wear makeup for nights out and special events. I’m not a huge fan of full coverage formulas, but sometimes it’s just necessary and I’m so glad I moved beyond the bounds of my very comfortable comfort zone to try this bad boy. Somehow it provides extremely long lasting coverage, but applies in quite a thin veil over the skin? Not sure how it works (magic?), but I’m not complaining!

So I’ve rec
A Few Favorites ✨ So I’ve recently been really loving the beautyblender bounce foundation, primarily influenced by my absolute favorite hindash! I usually struggle with finding shades that properly fit my neutral, but warm skin tone but the shade 3.25 N has been such a good match so far! I have been using it with their new opal essence primer, influenced by the most gorgeous human on the planet, miss basmabhamze, and it is SO great for my dry skin! Another complexion favorite has been the jouercosmetics concealer which has blown me away due to the high coverage yet comfortable feel.. kathleenlights and so many others rave about it and with good reason! I like to use my complexion products interchangeably so that I can find a good mix of what I like depending on how much coverage I want that day. So far, I highly recommend these three pretty products♥️

WHAT IT IS? Makeup sponge. PRODUCT TARGET CONCERNS: For those looking for airbrushed, flawless finish. TEXTURE/CONSISTENCY: Super soft and bouncy. OVERALL THOUGHTS: I can’t help it but I love Beautyblenders. I tried different (cheaper) sponges but none of them performed as good as Beautyblenders for me and none of them were as soft. With brushes sometimes my foundations tend to cling on my dry spots and facial hair but not with Beautyblender - it just creates the most natural , flawless, airbrushed finish. WHY I LIKE/DISLIKE IT: I love it because when I apply my foundations with it (especially those with medium to full coverage) it makes my finish very natural. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT ? Yes, I know lots of people would say they are cheaper options but I’ve tried several and nothing came close. IS IT WORTH IT? 1pc / $20 I always try to stock up on them during Holidays when they release various kits/sets/bundles. That way they are much cheaper.

I have found my new full coverage foundation and it’s a dream! This Bounce foundation truly has a bouncy whipped like texture that blends into the skin with their sponge really nicely, I needed about 4 pumps to get this coverage across my face and I love how I was able to build it up over my scarring too. It didn’t last as long as I had hoped, but I also fell asleep with my hand on my face near the end of my day. It didn’t pill up and Played well with the new Bite primer. The packaging is freaking adorable and not as messy as you would think. Overall this foundation really excites me. I saw Halsey use this and just had to have it! I’m so glad I picked it up since I now have my perfect foundation or those extra coverage or extra glam days! beautyblender - Bounce Liquid Whip Long Wear Foundation
