15 Beauty Brands You Should Get To Know In 2021Fresh new beauty brands are coming our way! Check out which one’s you’ll be eagerly awaiting on launch day for.
Finally, it’s a new year! Long awaited, and much deserved. Ringing in the new year means many things for everyone. A chance to renew, create new relationships, work on goals; really just more time to keep on doing YOU! With the changing of the years, I try and set intentions good for my well being without putting too much stress on the matter. Something like going to yoga more often or writing down intentions everytime I light a new candle. For the beauty obsessed side of me, the new year brings a chance to see what’s to come. New launches, new products to fawn over, and spiffed up shelfies. The newness of the beauty industry always impresses me. Innovation is constantly in the works in the name of beauty and beauty loving consumers can’t wait to try it all. To celebrate a new year of beauty, I’ve rounded up my favorite new beauty brands that i’ve been keeping a close eye on, many that haven’t even launched yet! Which one will you try this year? Or maybe, you’ll try a few! Vesca BeautyQuickly gaining popularity, Vesca Beauty is showing up with their chic colors cosmetics. Vesca Beauty’s cream-colored and navy blue packaging houses what they call “summer romance, any time of year”. If you buy one thing from them, let it be the Soft Sun Radiant Skin Primer & Luminizer. Besides launching creamy and beautiful formulas, the brand launched the “Reset Beauty Fund” to foster permanent change in the beauty community to elevate and support BIPOC content creators and models. KiramoonKiramoon’s branding has completely stolen my heart. The crazy curated red, pink, and white Instagram has captivated many as the brand prepares for their skincare launch on January 15th. Kiramoon has been gaining popularity with their holographic makeup pouch, called “The Magic Pouch” and their pink heart shaped mirror. Both incredibly shelfie worthy, and adds some Kiramoon spunk to your beauty routines. “Good Skin, Better Mood” is the brand’s cheeky tagline.Lisa Nail LacquerLisa White says when she landed her first job as a beauty editor, it was truly a dream come true. With all the products she tested on a daily basis, nail polishes were her absolute favorite. Something that’s few and far between? Damn good “clean” nail polishes. Most are filled with a crazy amount of chemicals. To fill the white space and jump into something she was passionate about, Lisa launched her nail polish brand which is 100% vegan and non-toxic. Besides having amazing formulas, the names are the best. “millionaire mindset” and “per my last email” are my top picks.EveristLooking to bring another approach to sustainable hair care, Everist will be launching 100% plant-based shampoos and conditioners that are activated by the water while using in your shower.

Base Serum, will be their first product, Clinically proven to promote cellular repair and designed to help your skin heal and age in the healthiest way possible.

Clear skin the gentle way?
Thank you @cheriefor this amazing gift 🤩 “buh-koo-chee-all” HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I’ve already become a diehard Herbivore lover. So to receive this beauty was super exciting. When I started my acne journey on Cherie I was (and still am) a Differin Acne Gel stan. This was my choice of retinol and I wanted it strong to treat acne and boost my cellular turnover. Now that my acne is currently under control and it’s getting hot again, I definitely want something smooth and gentle. Bakuchiol is a gentler alternative to the very popular ingredient retinol. So essentially you’ll get overall youthful results for your skin. I haven’t tested this on my acne theory yet, but overall my face has been smooth and irritation free. This serum does not have a smell which I love for products of this caliber. I also love that it’s light and not drying at all. I use this at night and since i have a tolerance to retinol I use it every night. I haven’t been using it long enough to see results (about 12 weeks) but I definitely can’t wait to finish this. Have you tried Bakuchiol?
Drunk Elephant- The Littles 🐘
I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 That’s literally a whole skincare routine! So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks! But so far, my skin feels & looks great! I have been breaking out lately & haven’t felt the best about my skin so I really needed this pick me up!! Thank you for reading! You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
DISAPPOINTED BY THESE 100% NATURAL PRODUCTS 😩
I was so excited to try these out because I love moisturizers & I am always in search of a good one! These looked & sounded very promising! They’re from a woman owned company, completely natural, vegan, & cruelty free! However, I was quite disappointed. EARTH HARBOR - MERMAID MILK Nutrient Glow Moisturizer This moisturizer claims to give you a glow right away & it contains spirulina + matcha. I was excited about the matcha because it has so many amazing benefits for skin. It has a very whipped consistency which I like. However it always contains essential oils that were strong, although not toooo strong for my liking. But I’m really just not a fan of essential oils in my face creams. The moisturizer did make my skin appear a little brighter but the cream just sat on my face. All day long I could touch my face & still feel the cream sitting there! I hate that feeling! It also almost gave me a greasy appearance after a while? Not a fan. EARTH HARBOR - SIREN SILK Multi-Tasking Hydration Creme This one was absolutely awful. If I could give it 0 stars I would. It says to use it at night time & the apply it at least 5 minutes before bed so it can absorb on your face & not your pillow. It contains Sea Retinol + other Superherbs which normally make me love a product! But that just wasn’t enough here. First, when I put it on my face my eyes started to actually burn & I felt suffocated from the scent. It was THAT strong. Guys, I’m not being dramatic at all. The smell like attacked me it was crazy! I have never had something like that happen with a face cream! I couldn’t believe how strong the fragrance was. & to top it off, it wasn’t even a pretty smell. My husband described it as smelling like floor cleaner. But I powered through. The longer I had it on, the more “used” to the smell I got. So, I wore it overnight. But then I woke up even more upset with it! I had pilling all over my face. It almost looked like my face was peeling but it wasn’t, it was jus the cream. One thing I cannot stand about a moisturizer is pulling. That’s enough for me to throw it out! It also didn’t really even moisturize my face that well! All in all, I hated this experience. But if you want, you should try them out for yourself, don’t let my experience deter you from trying something new! I however, will be sticking with my Youth To The People Dream Mask & Superfood Whipped Moisturizer! Love those two!! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream 💗💗💗 @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
