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)."
campaign, cherie
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."Lipstick 2: Mac Cosmetics Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick in High Drama

How 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."
campaign, cherie
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."
campaign, cherie
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 Amazonian
campaign, cherie
How 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?"
campaign, cherie
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."Lipstick 4: IBY Beauty Feathermatte Liquid Lip in shade Nude

How 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!"
campaign, cherie
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."
campaign, cherie
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."

2020s Biggest Trend: Dermatologist Approved
2020s Biggest Trend: Dermatologist Approved
The biggest trend in 2020 is PERSONLIZRD SERUMS. I tried #Atolla and here are my genuine thoughts (SURPRISE AT THE END OF CAPTION!) Do you ever feel like there are too many skincare products out there and have no idea what you need? Trust me, it’s happened to me too! I have been using #ATOLLA which is a company that formulates serums with a mixture of ingredients to target with your skin needs. Here are some of the benefits: 1) The serum is personalized for your skin. 2) you are able to monitor your skin changes each month with a skin test 3) Your formulation is altered monthly to target your problem areas. 4) It formulates several key ingredients into one serum, rather than buying separate creams. 5) it takes into account the products you are currently using. My initial skin concerns when completing my skin quiz with Atolla was battling dry skin as well as skin hyperpigmentation. They sent me a product with vitamin C complex as well as Alpha Arbutin. Vitamin C acts as my antioxidant against sun damage, evens out my hyperpigmentation, increases collagen, and increases hydration. Combining this with alpha arbutin, which targets the enzyme that produces pigment, only further reduced my hyperpigmentation. Like everything, results did not come overnight, but with consistent use, I was able to really even out my skin pigment and hydrate my skin. 🎉🎉🎉CHERIE SURPRISE 🎉🎉🎉 I've asked Atolla to give my CHERIE APP followers an exclusive code “DRCHRIS” for 25% off! Excited to see what you guys think!! 🙌🙌 Atolla - Custom Serum INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN:⤵️ The vitamin C helps with collagen growth, hyperpigmentation, as well as sun damage. The Alpha arbutin targets primarily hyperpigmentation creating an even skin tone. Depending on your product, you can use it in the morning or night.

Hi!! With halloween around the corner and face paints and heavy makeup inevitable, I wanted to share some products that I think would be helpful to making sure your skin stays safe and protected under makeup, and things to do post makeup to minimize irritation and acne. Besides your normal routine, here are some things you can add! Obviously I don’t suggest adding all these things in one day, but if you have some of these and you know they work for you, try it out! My skin type: sensitive, acne-prone, rosacea, combo My skin concern: redness, hyperpigmentation Pre Halloween Skincare: + FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask this is one of my favorite hydrating masks; it has a warming effect and it’s very healing. The antioxidants can protect from free radicals and provide a quick moisture barrier recovery. Use it very lightly and it washes off SO well. Smells a bit like honey. + FARMACY - Deep Sweep this toner is absolutely heavenly, it’s great for preparing your skin for incoming acne and clearing up oily skin and extra sebum. Not a lot of fragrance, which is great. This is perfect for halloween because salicylic acid is a bit photosensitive, but at night time there and under masks there is very little that could go wrong in that sense. + #Romer - Treatment[products]#[FourStars] this product is fairly new to me, but I am very excited about it. It’s a moisturizer/treatment combo, so you can leave it on or wash it off as a mask. I prefer to leave it on; it’s very soothing and rich, so it hydrates my skin so well. Smells very fresh and also a bit like fruit! It’s made with niacinamide and prickly pear, so it’s nourishing as well as a little clarifying. Post Halloween Skincare: + PLANT APOTHECARY - Not A Spot Acne Treatment Mask you know how you can FEEL acne coming after a long day of wearing makeup or sweating or whatever? This mask is perfect for it! I usually use this as a spot treatment unless my skin is really bad - it can be drying on normal or dry skin. If you’re oily or combo, just use sparingly. It’s a powder so you have to follow the directions and mix it with water (or your favorite serum or essence or toner), I usually just do water, and then it’s like a paste! Not much of a smell, but I do like the gentleness of it. + SNP - Cicaronic Sheet Mask after acne masks or clay masks, I like to follow up with a hydrating sheet mask to soothe and calm my skin. This one is perfect - made with centella asiatica aka cica - and the sheet mask actually fits my face for the first time ever! This will add some hydration back into your skin post acne/clay mask and prep for the rest of your routine. Smells like fresh cut grass!
Thank you guys!
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

Have you guys seen Emily in Paris? I know its stereotypical, unrealistic, and kindofunfairtothefrench but... It was so entertaining. I binged it in 2 days. I also found Emily’s actress, Lily Collins, super pretty. She looks like Snow White in so many makeup looks, so I tried my hand at once. This is what she wore in the 2017 Oscars. Here’s a few tips for how I did this look! 🍷 TIPS 🍷 Start the liner with pencil. And keep it in the outer corner of your eyes. The pencil should emphasize your upper and lower outer corners to frame the wing. I used my PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Eye Boost Gel Eyeliner Trio Avoid felt-tipped liner. Ironically, that’s what I used here. The L'ORÉAL - Infallible Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner IS great quality and value. Its opaque and hasn’t gone bad with on/off use in 2 years. The finish is sort of shiny, and it glides on easy. Buuuut for this look, go for full paint liquid liner. It’ll make the wing more pronounced, and less likely to fray. The felt tip is great, but the ink can run low for this kind of look. Use white + light eyeshadow to emphasize the space. This helps a LOT. It doesn’t look like it at first, but this look has shadow! I used the URBAN DECAY - UD x Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palettepalette. Take a color that’s your skin color (but shimmery) and apply it all over your eyelid. (I used the shade Bathwater) Put a MINIMAL amount of brown crease shadow at the outer edge (Anaheim). Do a bright inner corner highlight (Blonde) AAAAAND fill in the space between your black liner (Blonde). It might soften the black liner- No worries, pure liquid liner can easily go over it again. Still, using skin-toned / brighter shadow really makes the black pop! Make your lashes biggest at the center. Guys I had to redo my lashes like 10 times. And I trimmed the ends a LOT. It doesn’t even make it across my entire lid, but that’s okay- To match Lilly Collin’s look, center the lashes. Opt for a frayed look like e.l.f. - Natural Lash Kit so it opens your eyes without hiding the liner. I personally like this lash set and glue. The lashes are a little fragile, but they’re comfortable. And I like that the glue is clear- You can’t see all the places I accidentally got it on my eye. 🤡 Pick a lip color with sheen. Her lips aren’t fully matte in this picture. But I like that- they have a pretty glow. I went for a more berry looking color. The NYX - Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream in Madrid is just as good as the regular matte lip colors. They’re not drying, and they’re super pigmented. And finally, a subtle blush. I found that peach/ amber goes well with this look. Apply it to the apples of your cheek, and avoid the under eyes. This will make the eye area look more open. I used the BOURJOIS - Little Round Pot Blusher in Rose Amber. A little hard to swatch, but pretty and subtle!
