Detoxing your makeup bag? Check out these organic beauty brands
As many of us are becoming more conscious of what we put in our bodies, it makes sense that we should be just as conscious about what we’re putting on them too. The performance of organic makeup used to be poor in comparison to the wider market, but now brands are creating organic products that are just as pigmented, durable, and easy to use.
Organic makeup is made with organically farmed ingredients, grown without the use of GMOs, herbicides and synthetic fertilisers. This means the formulas are cleaner and safer since they’re less likely to irritate your skin.
The following brands and products are proudly organic so you can make a start on (literally) cleaning up your makeup bag.
Perhaps one of the most famous natural and organic brands, RMS Beauty has a full collection makeup products made with natural ingredients. The brand is passionate about clean beauty – all the products are designed to be as pure as possible in order to limit skin’s exposure to toxic ingredients. Where possible they use ingredients that are raw and food-grade so they can better penetrate the skin, and in addition, the ingredients within are chosen to do good and look good, so they actually treat and nourish skin simultaneously.
Hero product: RMS Living Luminizer
rms beautyLuminizer X Quad Highlighter Palette
This coconut-based cream highlighter gives the ultimate ‘lit from within’ glow, melting into skin and casting a dewy sheen. The formula is so clean, it’s basically skincare.
One of the first brands to champion natural and organic makeup products, Inika Organic is true to its name, formulating every single launch with a clean ingredient line-up. Every single one of their 80+ products is made with ethically-sourced and 100% clean ingredients, naturally-derived from botanicals and minerals. You can feel the quality in every single one of the products, from the baked foundations through to the mineral-based loose pwoder blushers.

Not only is this mascara clean, organic, and vegan, it also happens to be one of the best mascaras we’ve ever tried. The uniquely curved brush packed pigment onto lashes for an ultra-fluttery effect and the formula is packed with vitamin E to nourish lashes.
With an impressive taglinc, ‘skincare powered makeup’, Ilia Beauty has been an instant hit for clean beauty enthusiasts. The brand believes that makeup should make skin look like skin and is passionate about creating safe and effective formulas. Since launching in 2011 they’ve taken the beauty world by storm with products that routinely outperform their synthetic alternatives. What’s more, everything is packaged sustainably, using recycled aluminium and glass, and recyclable paper.
Hero product: Ilia Beauty Multi Stick
This creamy multitasking pigment stick is made with organic ingredients and can be used to add a subtle pop of colour anywhere from lips to cheeks and eyes.
Founded by an eczema sufferer, Lawless offers up a clean and organic alternative to popular Insta-beauty brands. The products are free from common toxic and hormone-effecting ingredients that can lead to serious health issues, but don’t compromise on delivery a bold, bright, and full coverage result. The brand launched with a line of organic liquid lipsticks but has grown to include primers, foundations, eyeshadows, and bronzers.
Hero product: Lawless Soft Matter Liquid Lipstick
LAWLESSSoft Matte Liquid Lipstick
All 11 shades of this bestselling liquid lipstick are free from talc, silicones, and parabens, but packed with pigment. The uniquely hydrating formula is packed with natural moisturisers that keep lips feeling soft and comfortable.
NEW 🚨 Anti-Irritation CBD Lip Balm 🍃
Kosas partnered with a brand called Flora + Bast, which sources pure, unprocessed CBD products for skincare and wellness. Together, they made this lip balm. It gives you a lot of ingredients for the cost, and is great for dry, acne-prone skin. I would recommend it the most for people who do sports, or in Fall/Winter weather. 🌿 INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN 🌿 ￼MAIN : Full Spectrum Cannabis Extract 50 mg Full Spectrum cannabis is the unprocessed version of CBD. It keeps all it’s aspects and nutrients, including THC (but less than 0.03%, so it won’t make you high). Research shows that CBD reduces sebum production and soothes irritation- making it ideal to control acne and redness. Our bodies naturally produce a cannabinoid called anandamide- without it, you have dry, irritated skin. CBD naturally helps replenish that. 50mg is potent for a lip balm. Some balms have 10 mg, so this is definitely not cheating you on ingredients. For other parts of your skin, CBD recommendations can go as high as 350 mg to treat pain. So 50 mg is a good range for the thin, sensitive skin on your lips. ￼Hyalauronic Acid A natural limp plumper that’s naturally derived from sugar- So it’s super unlikely to cause a reaction. We have HA naturally in our connective tissue. It keeps us lubricated, and it can bind ~1000 times its weight in water. What this means for your lips is that it’ll hold onto hydration, making them look plumper. ￼Konjac Root This pairs perfectly with HA. It has glucomannan, which holds ~50 times its weight in water. It’s turns the balm texture into a gel, and is antimicrobial. Together with HA, they have a plumping, anti-wrinkling effect. ￼Extra Ingredients Boy this little balm is packed! Here’s just a few more moisturizers it contains: castor seed oil, jojoba esters , grape seed oil, avocado oil, mango seed butter, rice bran extract, etc. 💕 APPLICATION 💕 My lips are prone to flaking because of harsh acne medication. They also get easily red and irritated. This balm is advertised as creamy and soothing. When I apply it, it goes on thick- but doesn’t look thick. It has a natural-ish finish that leans glossy. It feels perfect for winter because it’s so creamy. And it feels a little minty- Which I found really relaxing. The product didn’t just sit on my lips- After hours, it felt like it had absorbed its moisture. The texture reminds me of theNeutrogena - Lip Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 15 ($2.99 for 0.15 oz). But that product has a much shorter ingredient, with castor oil as its main moisturizer. Kosas product ($20 for 0.17) is priced higher, but it’s worth it for all the extra ingredients you get. If you have sensitive lip concerns, this product is worth checking out. Its slim packaging makes it easy to slip into your bag, and it’ll keep chapping under control.
Thank you guys!
Yesterday I received my leaderboard prize for being in the top 3 and I got to use it tonight!!!! First I just want to say I am just so thankful 🤗 to all of my followers and supporters for cheering me on. I am crazy overwhelmed (in a good way) with all the love ❤️ I have received since being a part of this community. Not to mention I am so close to 6k Followers and I just can believe it!! I have been such a hermit for a while, I was not even an avid social media user. I decided to start doing little things for my self with skincare and makeup, then one day I stumbled across Cherie and things just changed. I went from just cheering and saving posts that interested me, to my first post, to a large following and actual friends. This was all so unexpected and a such a blessing. I found myself again aside from being a mother and wife. I found self love and began a much needed journey of self care. Also thank you Cherie!! This app has given me a lot of joy. The support you guys give is amazing! Just being on the leaderboard was such an honor and now there are gifts! You guys rock! Thank you again! This oils is so lush! HERBIVORE - Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil I just love the packaging, I don’t know if I will throw the box away!❤️ The glass bottle and beautiful green/blue oil are gorgeous. It has a very Earthy scent to it, but it is not over powering and fades quickly. Also a little goes a long way, I only used like 3 drops before my moisturizer. The feel on my skin reminds my of my Sunday Riley night oil, but not as heavy. My skin felt nice and moisturized with a nice glow. ￼Contains hemp-derived Cannabis sativa seed + adaptogenic herbs to soothe, hydrate, and gives a nice glow. ￼This product is high in moisture making it Perfect for the coming dry months. ￼Contains mushrooms and turmeric to defend skin against the environment and reduce wrinkles. At $48 this could possibly replace my Sunday Riley oil....because that stuff is super expensive!!! I love it but my wallet doesn’t! However this Emerald oil it a great replacement honestly and it’s not as heavy an oil. There is not a huge difference in the heaviness but it is noticeable to me. I also like how the scent fades, the Luna oil does not. Really a wonderful prize! Thank you !🙏🥰 ❤️Cherie Creator
Briogeo Scalp Revival at the Sephora Sale
The November Sephora sale is coming up soon, so I wanted to tell you all about my thoughts on these Briogeo Scalp Revival products. Note: I will not be talking about the shampoo. I really love Briogeo as a brand. Their Curl Charisma line has really helped me bring my curls back to life. However, I have super sensitive skin all over my body and this includes my scalp. I have to treat it right or else I get HELLA itchy and I also get dandruff occasionally. Here are my thoughts and experiences with Briogeo’s Scalp Revival Conditioner and Scalp Treatment Serum: ￼Briogeo Scalp Revival Conditioner: Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Peppermint Oil Cooling Jelly Conditioner ok, so you can clearly see that I’ve rated this 1/5 stars... but let me explain why: my hair is SO DRY. It’s really frustrating having to use lightweight products near my scalp, but having to use super thick creams on the rest of my hair. I thought this product might solve that problem by, you know, conditioning my hair a good amount all around. Nope. This conditioner has the same consistency as their shampoo, just minus the exfoliating beads...they describe it as a “gel conditioner” but it freaking lathers dude like a conditioner LATHERING?!?! No thank you. It dried out my hair so badly and did not give me any type of moisture whatsoever. So, obviously, this is not the right product for my hair type, but who would benefit from this? I would definitely recommend this conditioner if you have the oiliest hair on the planet. Like, wash your hair daily oily, no curl, no texture, just pin straight hair. That is the only type of hair I’d recommend this to. I got this in a travel kit (2oz) which I would recommend picking up if this sounds like your kind of product! ￼Briogeo Scalp Revival Treatment Serum:Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment Serum ok, so we are obviously full 180 here. Let me tell you about my lover. My partner in crime. The treatment serum. Oh my gosh. This has SAVED my scalp on multiple occasions. I use it every other time I wash my hair, so probably twice a month. It’s a lightweight serum that treats itchy and dry scalp but it doesn’t make your scalp oily AT ALL!! I love it. I part my hair into sections around the front hairline and crown where I get the itchiest, and apply it while my hair is wet after I get out of the shower. It’s kind of pricey (1oz for $32) but a bottle lasts forever for me. Like, at least a year! I highly recommend this for those with an itchy scalp. Ok, but why tea tree and charcoal? They have healing and cleansing properties for your scalp without being overly harsh or stripping to your hair. Briogeo’s products are 6-free: no harsh sulfates, no parabens, no silicones, no phthalates, no artificial dyes, no DEA. This supports healthy overall hair. Have you tried anything from Briogeo? #CheriePartner

AMONG US MAKEUP PRODUCT LIST
I’ve been asked multiple times by my awesome TikTok community to do a makeup look inspired by the popular video game, Among Us. I wanted to create an avant-garde version of their intro screen and promo posters, where the lil astronauts were all in space. Then I added all the colors mixed into a rectangular block on my face to match how the characters look. Being inspired by something popular doesn’t mean you have to give up on your aesthetic ❤️ If you want to see how I applied everything, check out my tiktok tutorial @cindychendesigns!
