The test: How long does your lippie last with no touch ups?Lipstick 1: Half Caked Color Lip Fondant in Power Trip How Does It Go On? "Its 9:30AM and my lipstick meets its first challenge of the day - coffee! The first and last application of the day went on smoothly, and immediately absorbed into my lips. It was also easy to create clean lines without a lip liner."Is it sticky on your lips? "It was sticky to put on at first, the product is called a "lip fondant" and it looked/felt just like that. It really crept into the fine lines and dry spots on my lips and felt a bit dry for my liking."Does it last through drinking/eating? "This lipstick did not pass the vibe check for a foodie. It transferred heavily onto cups, straws, and foods." Is the color still vibrant? "The color is still packing a powerful punch even in the afternoon! It has oxidized a good bit to give a more bright/orange toned look compared to the morning crimson I started with." Are you lips moisturized? "My lips were definitely struggling to pull off the matte look with this lipstick. However, It is not a moisturizing product, and I didn't fully prep for it (exfoliating, chapstick, etc)."Does it look just as good? "From the moment I put on my makeup, its a countdown until my oily skin wins the battle. The lipstick was just the last product to go. It was pretty smudged from a full day of snacking and chatting." How long did the lipstick last? "The color remained rather pigmented throughout the whole day. However, this meant when the color smudged, it gave a not-so-cute red shadow around my mouth." Would you recommend for all-day wear? "I would, BUT, with proper reapplication at least 2x a day just to keep lines crisp."

Half CakedLow Key Lip FondantLipstick 2: Mac Cosmetics Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick in High DramaHow does it go on? "10:30am - This retro matte liquid lip color easily glided onto my lips. The applicator is very unique because it points at the tip and makes applying in the creases a flawless application. I did have to apply at least two coats of color because it was splotchy in some areas after the initial application. You must be quick and precise when applying this lip color because it dries almost instantly." Is it sticky on your lips? "The texture is not sticky at all, especially since it is a matte lip color. The effect is more drying on your lips rather than sticky. However, for someone with dry skin I did have to adapt to the feeling of purposefully having 'dry' lips."Does it last through drinking/eating? "2pm- Once this lipstick is on it barely withers. It has officially been 3+ hours and my lipstick shade has not smudged. I have been drinking straight from this cup and I had lunch as well. There was no transfer from lipstick to cup whatsover." Is the color still vibrant? "The shade that I am wearing is pretty dark to begin with and it has a mattecoat, so it never really started off "vibrant". However, the shade does look just as plum as it did this morning." Are you lips moisturized? "My lips are very far from moisturized. I must say, my lips were pretty dry throughout the day and the cracking began very minimal then increased near the end of the day."Does it look just as good? "On a scale from 1-10, this lipstick rates at a 7 by end of day. It does look just as good. However, there was one small crack going down the middle of my lip and I did receive some transfer from lip to chin after eating dinner." How long did the lipstick last? "The lipstick lasted from 10:30am-8pm (approximately 9 hours). It could have lasted longer, but I was ready to add moisture to my lips at this point." Would you recommend for all-day wear? "I would definitely recommend this for all day wear. It's matte properties help with a longer stay and I never reapplied (not once) throughout the day. What better all day wear than a lipstick that doesn't need multiple applications throughout the day."Lipstick 3: name - Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick in AmazonianHow does it go on? " loooove the applicator of this lipstick! It's tapered which allows you to get good lines without needing a lip liner. For a drugstore all-day wear lipstick, this goes on like a dream! It's not to thick, and not too thin. However, it can be a huuuuge hassle to take off if you do happen to make a mistake, so you definitely have to be careful when you apply it to the corners of your mouth and cupids bow!" Is it sticky on your lips? "Definitely feels a little sticky. When it dries down completely, it STILL feels sticky which is a huge bummer. Hopefully as it dries down, this will go away?"Does it last through drinking/eating? "It did not go away. In fact, it was made worse by eating AND drinking, but it definitely lasted through lunch. I'm a chronic drink spiller, so I often drink out of tumblers with lids and straws. In this case, the Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick did not pass the vibe check. I had product covering my straw all day!" Is the color still vibrant? "Even though it's still sticky and all over my straw, the color is definitely hanging on to my lips. Still looking pink and plump!" Are you lips moisturized? "Again, not moisturized, but very sticky. Is sticky better than dry? I can't tell."Does it look just as good? "Even though its a little patchy along the inside of my lips, this lipstick looks almost exactly like it did when I first applied it!" How long did the lipstick last? "From morning to night, this sticky lip lasted until I took it off in the evening." Would you recommend for all-day wear? "On good faith, I don't think I can recommend this lipstick for all-day wear. It's just too sticky and too much of a hassle to worry about, especially if you've got lots to do."
MAYBELLINESuperStay Matte Ink Liquid LipstickLipstick 4: IBY Beauty Feathermatte Liquid Lip in shade NudeHow does it go on? "Here's how the lipstick looks at 10AM. It goes on super smoothly and easily! Although it's a matte lipstick, it actually feels really creamy, lightweight and comfortable. The color is full and I only needed one swipe to achieve this color." Is it sticky on your lips? "To my surprise, it did feel a bit sticky when I put my lips together. However, it wasn't too much where it bothered me!"Does it last through drinking/eating? "As you can see, the color started fading on my bottom lip through all the eating and drinking. This typically happens to me, so I guess I'm still searching for that lipstick that lasts through my constant eating and snacking throughout the day ;D" Is the color still vibrant? "I wouldn't say it stayed vibrant — it turned more into a light tint on my bottom lip and the color stayed almost the same on my top lip." Are you lips moisturized? "Throughout the day, my lips felt like it needed to be moisturized so I wouldn't recommend this as a nourishing lipstick. I did put a lip mask on before applying the lip because my lips have been particularly dry lately, but I felt like I should have exfoliated beforehand too." Does it look just as good? "I really wish it did! I had high hopes when I applied it because the lipstick glided on so easily and it felt so comfortable. The lipstick color faded into a nice natural lip color but wasn't the same color as when I first applied it. It also started feeling dry towards the inside of my bottom lip, but again my lips have been very dry so I'm in need of a more moisturizing lip." How long did the lipstick last? "The lipstick began to fade after I started eating and drinking, so the full color only lasted a few hours. If I didn't eat, it definitely would have lasted a lot longer though." Would you recommend for all-day wear? "Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend this lipstick for an all-day wear. The fact that it's a matte lipstick but still creamy and lightweight is the tradeoff for it not being an all-day wear lipstick."

are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
since COVID has started, I know many people are on new (or refining old) skincare journeys and I’ve recently been experiencing some dryness/dehydrating as the winter rolls around, which also aggravates my already oily skin. I’ve worked in the beauty industry for a while and also was formerly an esthetician, so I can get picky with skincare and ingredients. ‼️for reference, my skin type is: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, hyperpigmentation prone, and sensitive 🔬I’ve used Dr. Jart in the past and love that it’s a Korean, science-backed brand so I was stoked to try this Porecting Solution Mask! this mask promises fresh, clear glowing skin that deeply cleanses and purifies pores. the mask contains charcoal and saponine, which creates the bubbling effect you see in the above photo. this product does not contain sulfates, paragons, are phthalates. 🛁when I first took it out of its package, I thought there were *two* masks per package instead of one, but if you read the instructions, there’s actually a “mask film” on the actual mask itself that you’re supposed to remove, so make sure to do that! the actual mask is thick and full of product while the mask film is thinner and lighter in color. the directions also give you a tip to massage the mask to release the bubbling/foaming effect - I did this mask with my mom at the same time in separate rooms and she totally didn’t read the instructions so her mask didn’t bubble at all, so I would suggest to definitely massage the mask. 💬I left it on for 20 minutes and it continued to bubble about 5-10 minutes in, then stopped bubbling. you can hear the bubbles pop as the mask sits on your face, which is kinda weird but cool. the mask didn’t slip off AT ALL which is also a huge, even when I put a sweatshirt on over my head. after taking it off, the serum took about another 10 minutes to soak into my skin and my face felt super smooth and my pores looked tighter and more clean. I have a few sebaceous filaments on my nose that I sometimes pick at and as I was rubbing the serum into my skin, I saw that some of the sebaceous filaments on my nose were sloughing off (which is gross, but speaks to how well the product worked)! overall, I would definitely recommend and use this again! if you have oily skin or otherwise clogged pores, sebaceous filaments, blackheads, etc. I would suggest this for you. even if you have dry/normal skin, this would be a good option since my skin didn’t feel dried out at all afterward, even in my dry spell now, and felt rather hydrated and plump. five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
How to build your skincare routine
How to build your skincare routine VOL. I - for many people getting into skincare it can super confusing (even as a professional it is) 😳 • Therefore I’m coming out with a series to help anyone who needs some guidance on where to begin 😉 • 3 parts: Step 1 - addressing your skin concerns! Step 2 - doing some research on different brands, ingredients, products to use or even consulting a professional and Step 3 - buying the essentials and not splurging 🤷🏽♀️ • Many esthetician’s and dermatologists offer consultations to clients who need help or guidance so check the ones in your area to see if that’s an option for you 👏🏽 • Not splurging is KEY! The last thing you want to do is drop $500 on products, only to find out your skin doesn’t agree with them or you don’t like them 🥴 • Was this chart helpful? Are you excited about this new series? 💙 • What’s your beginner skincare advice for building a routine? ♥️ CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin PAULA'S CHOICE - Resist Advanced Replenshing Toner

My Top 5 Foundations for Oily Skin
Here are my top 5 foundations for oily/combination/acne prone skin! These are by no means my only favorite foundations, just the ones I keep going back to. 1. ESTĒE LAUDER - Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation This matte, oil-free foundation controls oil all day. It’s sweat, heat and humidity-resistant, waterproof and 24-hour colour true. With buildable, medium-to-full coverage that feels lightweight and so comfortable. No touchups needed. Best for hot weather/ holidays. The only Downside is that it doesn’t come with a pump 2. MAYBELLINE - Fit Me! Matte & Poreless Foundation This foundation is a must have if you are looking for a good drugstore option for oily skin. It’s super affordable and gives a beautiful finish without feeling heavy on the skin. 3. HUDA BEAUTY - Fauxfilter Foundation is perfect for you if you are looking for full coverage. Just a couple of pumps go a long way. However, the formula isn’t ideal for anyone with dry skin or for people sensitive to string fragrances. 4. L'ORÉAL - Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Longwear Foundation This formula blends unbelievably well and you can build this to completely full coverage! ! I'm beyond impressed for this being drugstore. 5. The Ordinary - Colours Coverage Foundation with SPF 15 this is my everyday foundation and gives good enough coverage. I just have to mix two different shades to get my color as the range is quiet limited but for the price I pay, I don’t mind. Always stay away form words like “dewy”, “luminous”, “shiny” , “glowy” if you have oily skin. Let me know if you have any questions.
