Peach & Lily Mini Review! #CheriePartner

Oct. 19, 2020
I wanted to review these two products from Peach & Lily that I've been trying for the last two months!
1. Peach & Lily Skin Shield Blurring Primer
This Skin Shield is an awesome way to follow up your SPF! The consistency is a little sticky and it makes my skin feel super hydrated and plump! It helps to protect against daily environmental stressors like pollution, blue light, and internal stress, which can lead to persistent dark spots, lines, dullness, or breakouts. I spend so much time (in my day job and blogging job) in front of the computer and my phone--so I was super happy to add a step to my skincare / makeup routine that protects my skin from the blue light of these devices. Active ingredients include:
Aloe Vera - helps calm tired skin that has received excess sun exposure
Bamboo Extract - protects skin from oxidative stress and strengthens skin's barrier
Strawberry Extract - a potent source of vitamin C and known for its skin-brightening, sebum-balancing, and anti-inflammatory properties
I would totally recommend this product if you spend a lot of time in front of the computer like me! It does have a bit of a sticky texture--so I'd maybe not go for this if that's something that bothers you! As a primer it wears really nicely under makeup and gives me a dewy look (which also may bother you if you have oily skin). But since I have combination skin, I think it leaves a really beautiful finish.
2. Peach & Lily Glass Skin Veil Mist
I have tried this veil on bare skin as well as on top of makeup! It is a non-toxic, silicone-free hydrating mist that "delivers an instant glass skin look". You can spray it throughout the day to keep skin replenished with "hydration, antioxidants and calming ingredients". These ingredients include:
Cucumber Water - 
soothing and rich in antioxidants
Lotus Extract
 - combats free radical damage from sun, pollution and stress
Peach Extract - full of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids to help keep skin firm, radiant, and resilient
Reishi Mushroom - 
A powerhouse adaptogen - helps combat visible signs of damage, inflammation, and redness
I am usually a huge fan of the Urban Decay setting sprays--but this feels SUPER different. The mist is really fine and it feels more like a refreshing spray than something to help your makeup last longer. I would reach for this product to finish my makeup when I want a more natural look and I only need my makeup to last a couple hours. It definitely has a skin like finish and the cucumber smell is to die for!
Peach & Lily are all about transforming your skin with good, clean ingredients to look poreless and luminous. I really love trying products from tis brand because they put skincare first--something I've gotten way more into in quarantine! I would totally recommend trying them out if you're looking for a new brand to combine skincare with awesome active ingredients!

Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩🤩 Something thing I am very particular about is my moisturizer. My skin barrier tends need the extra TLC and the best thing to give it is moisture. So when I look for a moisturizer I need something that gives me instant hydration and doesn’t clog my pores. So when I received the : BASE BUTTER - Radiate Face Jelly Aloe Vera Gel Face Moisturizer I was so excited! The Brand : ✨Black Owned ✨Women Owned ✨Cruelty Free ✨Non-Comedogenic ✨Vegan ✨Paraben Free 🔑 Ingredients : ✨Aloe Vera Juice ✨Shea Butter ✨Evening Primrose Oil Okay, as you can see your girl woke up DULL! The only thing I did for this video was wash my face and use this to show y’all the transformation! I was using this EVERY night but last night I used my acne treatment routine and your girl FELT THAT (salicylic acid can be so drying to my combo skin). What’s my favorite part? This baby doesn’t have a smell or heavy greasy feel, so it perfect year round! At $21 this is a DEAL ! (The line I used on my cheek covered the entire bottom portion of my face!) Have you tried this brand?
A Journey of Self 🌹
A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.

So I decided to use the products I pictured in my first photo (minus my highlight shade and lipstick) I used the #Ace Beaute - Nostalgia Palette[products]#[FiveStars] for my entire eye look. I definitely enjoyed these products. My only advice is to shake the UOMA BEAUTY - Say What?! Foundation before use (because it can come out watery) but the coverage is absolutely flawless. I was shocked with the consistency the coverage I got. What’s your favorite black owned brands? (I do not own right to the song)
