Hydrating, Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Oxidant
I have typically oily skin that occasionally breaks out or gets dry spots. I also have acne scars along the sides of my cheeks. My lips are typically chapped, no matter what 😝. I have a light skin tone with neutral undertones. . NYX - Butter Gloss is a long-lasting glistening lip color that offers sheer-to-medium coverage that leaves lips, soft, supple, and kissable. It also hydrated the lips while giving a kick of color and gloss. There are 23 shades, ranging from pinks to neutrals to reds/purples and even a periwinkle blue! They all have cute food names. This one is in Devil’s Food Cake, a deep purple. The full size is 0.23 fl oz for $5 (this mini is 0.08 fl oz). These have a sweet cupcake scent to me that lasts a couple of hours after application. It claims to not have a sticky feeling, but to me, these are how I imagine lipglosses from my childhood: goopy, sticky, and uncomfortable. This gets everywhere and piles up on certain areas of your lips, creating a not cute look. It isn’t easy to layer on, it sheens itself out and you can see your lips where you wipe the applicator, it doesn’t deposit more color. These aren’t long-lasting for me either, they disappear quickly and move around your lips a lot, so it’s easy for it to get all over your face. . MAC - MAC Lipglass is a unique lipgloss that creates a high-gloss, glass-like finish, or subtle sheen. It’s very pigmented, very shiny, can be subtle or more dramatic. It can be worn alone or over lip pencil or lipstick (depending on how bold you want to go). It also includes jojoba oil to help soften and condition the lips. There are 21 shade options at Ulta, ranging from neutral colors to oranges to bright red and this purple. This is in the shade Love Child, a coppered plum. I have a mini size from an Ipsy bag, but the full size is 0.1 oz (this size is 0.08 oz) for $17.50. I’ve found that this lipgloss is pretty on its own and over other lip products. It layers easily and doesn’t become all goopy or sheen whenever you try to put more on top. It has a nice vanilla scent to it, it reminds me of the Bite Beauty Agave + Overnight Lip Mask. It’s a nice lipgloss that doesn’t have the typical sticky finish where you can’t even move your lips, it’s one that I actually enjoy using! . It is worth it. The expensive product is better because it is so lightweight and builds easily. You forget you’re even wearing a lipgloss, plus it is actually hydrating. It is easy to create a subtle sheen that looks natural or build it up and intensify a look. I hate the typical gloss feeling where you can feel it on your lips or it glides around, but the MAC lip glass is great! I wish they were cruelty free, but they definitely have the better gloss.
Top 5 January Favorites
Hey ya’ll in today’s mini post we’re talking about my top 5 favorite products of January 2021! First up is the Curology - The Moisturizer which comes in a set with theCurology - The Cleanser for $10. If you don’t listen to my podcast (search ‘Beauty Talk’ wherever you listen) then you wouldn’t know that I’ve been trying Curology for the last month (review coming on Friday). The moisturizer has glycerin and Hylaronic acid which are super hydrating ingredients. I love the lightweight texture that still keeps me moisturized. Hands down never going back to cream moisturizer after this!! Next is theLA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios Dermo-Kids Lotion SPF50 that costs $20 for 6.76 fl oz. It’s a bit greasy, but it makes my skin soft and glowy while also keeping it healthy. Even during lockdown it’s really important to wear sunscreen every single day. Next up is theOSEA - Sea Vitamin Boost which costs $38 for 3.4 fl oz. I was gifted this product by Cherie after I won Cherie Pick, and it’s the only good mist I’ve found. It’s alcohol and fragrance free, has algae and seaweed extract for hydration, and pomegranate extract for brightening. I know I don’t talk a lot about makeup, but I have two makeup picks. First is theNYX - Butter Gloss which costs $5 for .27 fl oz. My good friend @t_l_t bought it for me, and it’s non sticky, and has an early 2000s shimmer effect. Finally is one of my holigrail products that continues to impress me, theL'ORÉAL - Voluminous Carbon Black Waterproof Mascara which costs $9 for .28 fl oz. This is THE MOST lengthening and clump free mascara I’ve ever used and I loveee ittt. That’s it for this post please cheer for this post if you liked it, comment your favorite product from this month, and follow me to join the family and for similar content. -Mae

Achieving The “Airbrushed” Look 🤎
Start with making sure your face is prepped and clean and moisturized! I start with Simple - Water Boost Micellar Cleansing Water Then I use The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 make sure your face is damp when applying so it’ll retain the moisture! This is important Then I seal it in with The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Hemi-Squalane Make sure to wait 30 seconds to let these products seal in. Makeup: For foundation COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Hydrating Foundation Now before I blend it in I spray my setting spray and let it dry a little before.. this will make it looked airbrushed!!! It’s important trust me. Then I use my REAL TECHNIQUES - Miracle Complexion Sponge For concealer I use the e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer I use the #Maybelline - Fit Me Loose Powder[products]#[FiveStars] and this stuff is great especially if you’re taking pictures or using a ring light! I use a dark concealer for my contour e.l.f. - Hydrating Camo Concealer And the wet n wild - Color Icon Bronzer Square I love this stuff it blends so well!! Then I use MILANI - MILANI Baked Blush in luminoso it’s the best For highlighter I use wet n wild - MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in precious petals this applies so good I use the Milk MAKEUP - KUSH High Volume Mascara After I spray my NYX - Matte Finish Makeup Setting Spray and use my beauty blender to make sure everything sets properly! For my lips I use NYX - Suede Matte Lip Liner in Brown And NYX - Butter Gloss in Praline Then layer a coat of NYX - Soft Matte Metallic Lip Cream in Cairo Let me know any suggestions in the comments of your fave products! 🤎

Go-To Lip Combo!
So I’ve recently been super into nudes for some reason and saw a tiktok about these glosses and had to try them out and add my own twist to it! In the photo above I used the NYX - Suede Matte Lip Liner in shade “Maison” and lined my lips. Super easy application, wasn’t dry and have amazing nude shades of all ranges! I then go in with the NYX - Butter Gloss in shade “Praline” and start applying around my lips making sure to avoid the middle. Finally I go in again with the NYX - Butter Gloss but in shade “Fortune Cookie” and apply that in the middle while blending it out with the applicator. These glosses are definitely worth the hype! Super creamy, not sticky and side note-smell great! Would totally recommend if you’re looking for full coverage nude tone gloss! Comment below if you try this out! (:
