Perfect lip trio on-the-go
Hokayyyyy. I think this is the perfect lip trio for any trip (whether it’s just to work or a vacation)! Especially when your strapped for space in your purse / luggage / makeup bag, I like to be strategic and simplify my stash to just three go-to products. And just want to note, I typically opt for a more natural face of makeup. So each of these products are pretty light, glossy and don’t have too much colour. And since I have fairly dry lips, I typically opt for products that will provide me with extra moisture versus matte products that will leave me lips dry. FOR DAY TIME: Glossier. - Balm Dotcom (Rose) + it smells amazing. + the petroleum like texture + doesn’t leave your lips sticky at all. + sleek packaging that you can fit in any bag or even your pocket. - I find your lips need to already be in a good state to use this product consistently. If your lips are cracked or peeling you’ll need something a little more heavy duty. FOR NIGHT TIME AND WHEN LIPS NEED MOISTURE LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask (Grapefruit) + thick and moisturizing formula that will leave your lips feeling plump and nourished the next morning. + smells nice. + this almost looks like a lipgloss when you put it on, it leaves your lips super shiny and doesn’t make them sticky. + this grapefruit one gives your lips a slight pink tint. AND WHEN YOU WANT TO DRESS UP FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer (FU$$Y) + This has the prettiest pink colour that isn’t too overpowering or bright. + such a beautiful formula that is moisturizing, won’t dry out your lips. + this lipgloss instantly makes you lips look plump and dare I say juicy, but also gives you a tiny bit of sparkle. + no sticky lips! + super travel friendly packaging. It’s small enough to fit in almost any pocket or purse, and it’s packaging isn’t too delicate so you can throw in anywhere without worrying about it breaking. The only thing missing.. is a good SPF for the lips. If anyone has any recommendations I’d love to hear them 💋
Saves my lips
I am overall a dry person and my lips are really no exception. I have yet to go a winter without cracked, bleeding lips no matter how much I slather them with products. I started using the balm dot coms in the summer where I found them to be super hydrating, especially overnight and have found they are working well for the cold too. My lips stay hydrated all night and I wake up with smooth lips. It doesn’t transfer off at night which I love. Plus they have a ton of flavors. The coconut is my favorite daily use one but the berry is perfect for when you want a little tint to your lips. Also have used the mango which by far is the best flavor (except I lost mine which I’m still mad about!)
Excited about NY, going to prep my skin up tonight 🥰, not 100% sure what mask I will use. So I have had glossier for a couple of weeks now, so have had a good play with the products. First off the packaging is spot on! My opinions on the products. 🔸Cloud paint: Really like these! Really pigmented and apply really well and last a while, even on my slightly oily summer face. The one I have been reaching for is “dusk” which is a brownish nude, and is so perfect for everyday. I apply with my fingers then buff out with an eco tools stripping brush. 🔸Balm Dotcom: These are pretty good and I like them but I wouldn’t say they are must have, I have a variety of balms that work just as well. 🔸Boybrow: love this! I have been growing my brows out and using a brow serum to help with the growth as I over plucked in my 20s and also lost some hair when I was pregnant. This brow gel gives my brows volume and gives me actual boy brows, I could be competing with my husband right now! 🔸Lashslick: Nice mascara for everyday natural look. 🔸Haloscope: In colour quartz. Very Dewy highlighter. I like it but have to be careful when I use it, it can “move” my foundation if I am not careful and if my face is oily it can make it look oilier. So quite like the products, and for the price point they are good! They are perfect for a natural look, and that is their selling point. My favourite is the cloud paints, very pigmented and easy to blend and don’t settle into pores.
Not Impressed...Wild Fig Balm Dotcom (Updated)
Glossier. - Balm Dotcom (Updated from 3 stars) Glossier has just come out with a new ~limited edition~ wild fig balm dotcom. It’s a unique flavor, one I haven’t seen been done before (not to my knowledge at least). First impression is that it has an almost floral flavor to it, not quite what I was expecting. I typically prefer more fruity flavors for lip products, so I’m not sure if I will be gravitating to this over my mango balm dotcom. One thing I really liked about this particular flavor, however, is its coral tint. I wasn’t expecting it be as prominent as it is, but it’s definitely not as sheer as I expected, and gives my lips a beautiful glossy tint. I can’t say much about this flavor since I just received it in the mail, but I have been using my mango balm dotcom for a few months now and I can base my review off that. Since using the product it has definitely grown on me. At first I looked at it as overrated petroleum jelly, but I have to say I have definitely grown to enjoy it and it makes my lips feel and look softer, BUT I have to reapply quite often, and for this reason I maintain my 3 star review. Update: After using the fig balm dotcom again today, I have to say I’m not enjoying this particular flavor very much. It’s floral fragrance is overwhelming and does not have a very pleasant taste. Unfortunately I’m gonna have to knock this down to 2 stars, I don’t see myself using it very much! Do you plan on picking up this wild fig balm dotcom?

Model off-duty look ✨ #CheriePartner
Have you ever wondered how do models look so good on AND off the runway? My research tells me the key to that off duty, “I didn’t even try” look is achievable by following these easy steps and keeping it simple 🙌 Let’s start with skin. Models seem to have flawless skin, to achieve that perfected look we just need a glowy base and an even skin tone. For this look I skipped foundation altogether and opted for concealer only, I went in with the DIOR - Forever Skin Correct Concealer this creamy concealer gives full coverage but a natural finish that is never cakey. I used it to spot conceal and to cover my under-eyes circles. Next is brows, models keep they’re brows defined but feathery. I used Lime Crime - Bushy Brow Precision Pen & ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Dipbrow Gel I recommend just following the natural shape of you brow and not overdoing it. I used the essence - Sun Club Matt Bronzing Powder to give my cheeks and jaw some definition, and on my eyes as well. Essence makes beautiful powder products, in my opinion. This formula is buttery soft and blends beautifully. I personally prefer products that can be built up since they’re more forgiving, rather than having something super pigmented upon first application because I’ve been guilty of going overboard. It has a coconut-y scent but it’s very faint, tho I’d steer clear if you’re sensitive to fragrance. You can find this for $4.99 at Ulta! For blush I went in with the essence - Satin Touch Blush in ‘Satin Coral’ for a subtle touch of color and essence - Pure Nude Highlighter which is probably my favorite powder highlighter ever. Since I used all powders for my makeup today I decided to give the e.l.f. - Elf+ Glow Dewy Mist a try! I picked this up recently and wow, I’m actually very impressed with the mist itself but the packaging is not the best ☹️ the nozzle just kind of spits out the mist and leaves big droplets on the skin which could potentially ruin all your work. BUT, let’s talk about the product inside because I think it’s really good! This mist is formulated with coconut water, hyaluronic acid and argan oil as key ingredients, all amazing ingredients for hydrated, dewy skin. It’s kinda milky in texture and feels very refreshing, helps powders melt beautifully on skin but I wish it was more of a fine mist. Lastly, for lips I went in with the CALEY COSMETICS - Beach Babe Natural Lips in ‘Nude’ which is very close to my natural lip shade, added some Glossier. - Balm Dotcom in Cherry since it has a subtle red tint and I think a subtle lip is key here. I topped it all off with the Glossier. - Glossier. Lip Gloss in Red. Love this gloss, it isn’t goopy or heavy, and the shine lasts long. And that’s it!
