Are they worth the hype?! FULL REVIEW!
One brand love, @benefitcosmetics 🥰 finally reviewing some products from one of my favorite makeup brands - benefit! 💖 • benefit - Cyber Monday Free Porefessional Face Primer Deluxe Sample With Brand Purchase - been using this for years, one of my favorite and go-to primers. Yall know I have big pores and this really helps me blur them out 😭 it has this silk like balm consistency that feels really lightweight on skin. It excellently works for minimizing pores and out of all my primers here, this one lasts the longest!!! One of the best primers I’ve tried so far but a little bit pricey too 🥲 • benefit - Benefit Tinted Cheek & Lip Stain - to be honest, I don’t really like this one. It dries out my lips and doesn’t really last all day. I have to reapply every time. And not a fan of the formula and faint rose smell 😔 • benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer - THE BEST!!!!! I would repurchase this over and over. This is the perfect shade not too dark and too light. I wear this for my everyday makeup! It looks so natural on me and it’s so easy to build up. 💕 • benefit - High Brow Eyebrow Highlighter - Just a simple highlighting pencil for brows and inner corners of the eye. Just the right amount of highlight and smooth texture. ☺️ • benefit - Goof Proof Brow Pencil - I SWEAR benefit has the best brow products!!! I emptied this pencil so quick. I love the formula of the pencil, looks really natural on my brows, stays all day and blends beautifully. Best brow product ever, HANDS DOWN. 🙌🏻 • benefit - 24-Hour Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel - Another great product from benefit, this definitely holds my brows in place without feeling wet or sticky and keeps the pigment of the brow product as well. No crunchy feeling at all, works really well with other brow products. • benefit - Free Roller Lash Mascara Deluxe - Not really my favorite, formula leaves smudges under my eyes. Though it makes my lashes lengthy but doesn’t curl and is really clumpy. Overall, I love @benefitcosmetics! I really look forward to trying all their brow products because they are THE BEST!!!! Also, I wanna try their other makeup products as well. 🤞🏻 #benefit #benefitcosmetics

LET’S TALK BRONZER: Give me glow all year round!
Want to achieve a bronzy glow all year long? Keep reading! Bronzer is a great product that gives you that vacay glow! It comes in many forms but all give you that beautiful bronze. However, if you’ve never used this product before, there is a potential to go overboard and you’ll end up like a new cast member of the Jersey Shore show. (No shade at all! LOVE THE JERSEY SHORE! But the overuse of bronzer makes them all look like Oompa Loompas.) I’m going to give you the 411 on the types , how to apply them and which ones I think are the best. Make sure you cheer and follow me for more tips and tricks! Types: Powder: most typical and most beginner friendly. However be aware of the undertones! If you don’t pick the right one that matches your undertones, it will be an orangey mess. Use a big dome like bronzer brush like the MORPHE - E59 Tapered Bronzer Brushfor a nice diffused look. Of course, everyone knows the “3” bronzer application where you basically blend the bronzer on your face in a formation like the shape of the no 3. Cream/Stick: very natural looking and little bit intermediate. Best applied and blended out using a beauty blender. Pick up the product from the balm or stick using the blender and then applying it directly to the face with the blender. I wouldn’t necessarily apply this following the no 3 shape. I would focus this product on the perimeters of my face and blend using a damp beauty blender. Liquid: I have never used this form of bronzer before. It’s definitely something that I never though existed until I did my bronzer research. I would assume you would apply this like a cream bronzer. But lmk in the comments if you’ve ever used a liquid bronzer before. I’ll add your insights to my post and tag you in it. 😄 Best of the best: Powder: I think I’ve done a post on both of these but I love the PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzerand the benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer. Both give wonderful diffused bronze glows and won’t give you a orangey look. Cream/Stick: The most recognizable cream bronzer would have to be the CHANEL - SOLEIL TAN DE Bronzing Makeup Base. Everyone who has it raves about it. But a $50.00 price tag is not for everyone. So thankfully #Sol body - Bronzing balm[products]#has been rumored to be a great more affordable dupe for the Chanel counterpart. It’s about $15.00 but Colourpop is having a sale right now so you can get it for 30% off. Liquid: Like I said before, I’ve never used this type of bronzer. But after doing some research bareMinerals - barePro Glow Liquid Bronzercame up when I was trolling Ulta. It has 4/5 ⭐️ on Ulta. It seems promising but I couldn’t tell you from experience of this is bomb or not. Hopefully someone in the comments will speak on liquid bronzers. Hope this was helpful! I love talking about makeup products and simplifying them as it can be overwhelming. Until tomorrow, Xoxo 💋 #CherieCreator

BATTLE OF THE DUPES PT.6: VACAY GLOW BRONZER 💫
PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer VS. benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer For my 6th battle of the dupes, I am putting these two classic bronzers through my dupe tests to see which bronzer will remain supreme. I’ll test them on the product aka the blendability, price and packaging. At the end, I will tell you which one is the best. But first, make sure you cheer and follow me! Product: Going to start off positive. Both bronzers are very blendable. Both are pigmented. But with my experience the PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzeris more suited for a overall bronze warmth of the face whereas benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzeris very versatile and I use it for both bronzing and contouring due to the matte of it. The color options between the two are very different. At first the benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzerwas marketed as “universal” and honestly, no. This is not a universal bronzer and I’m glad they realized that. They “expanded” the shade range however IT DEFINITELY CAN BE BETTER! Three shades is not enough and that’s where PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzeris much better. The shade range is much more extensive and I feel as a POC that POC are better represented in this product than the benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer. Winner: PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer: POC are much better represented with the shade range. Packaging: PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzerhas a coconut smell but my big bronzer brush can pick up more product. benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzeris odorless but the square packing doesn’t allow me to pick up product. Winner: benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer, I can’t stand the coconut smell. 😳 Price: Obviously the PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzeris cheaper than the benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzer. The benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzeris $30.00 whereas the PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzeris $15.99. Winner: PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer: duh. 🤷🏻♀️ Overall: PHYSICIANS FORMULA - Murumuru Butter Bronzer: this is the better product overall. Price wise, product wise and packaging. However I do use benefit - Hoola Matte Bronzerthis more as a contour. Hope y’all enjoyed battle of the dupes pt. 6! Lmk in the comments below what dupes I should test next! Until tomorrow, Xoxo 💋 #CheriePartner #CherieCreator

5 Steps for Soft and Natural Everyday Makeup 💋
Most days I prefer to go light on makeup if I’m just going out to run a few errands, or doing something casual with friends and family. I have a few key products that I use to help elevate my natural features, ones that I think are the most essential to help us feel more put together. Below are a few of my go to products when I want a fast, easy, and natural makeup look for everyday. You can substitute any of the specific products I mention for your own, these are just what I prefer! 1. BROWS BROWS BROWS Anytime I have nicely groomed and defined brows I immediately feel more confident. There’s something about a nicely fluffed brow that just makes me happy. Not only that, I find that it helps frame the face and adds a bit more definition to the eye area. My current favorite brow routine uses only two products: The Anastasia Brow Wiz and the Anastasia Brow Gel. The Brow Wiz has a very precise pencil tip that helps with shaping my brows and filling them in with small defined strokes, and the gel helps with adding even more definition and shape while making sure they stay put all day. 2. Conceal and Powder Concealer is the most important step to this routine. I focus my concealer application to the center of my face - think under the eyes, around the nose, and chin area. This is where I have the most redness so I focus here and then follow up with some powder. We’re not using a foundation in this routine, but for me the concealer is enough to help even out the skin tone and blend in with the rest of our bare skin, giving a seamless natural look. I’ve been using the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and powder for years now, and they never fail me. 3. Rosy Cheeks I find that blush is a very important step after adding all that concealer and powder, which tends to flatten the face a bit. Blush will give your face a fresh look and help in defining facial structure. I don’t focus the product on the apples of my cheeks, I prefer to take it up on my cheekbones and then blend it to the apples just a bit, this defines my cheekbones more than if I only applied to the apples. Currently I’ve been loving the Wet n Wild Color Icon blush. 4. Bronzer This doesn’t serve the purpose you might expect in this particular routine. When I’m in a hurry out the door I don’t bother bronzing my face, but what I will do is put a bit of bronzer in the crease of my eyelids. It’s a quick and easy step that will define the eye and give it a bronzy look. I use the Benefit Hula Bronzer. 5. Maaaaascaraaaaa This speaks for itself. Without mascara my eyes just look incomplete lol. I’ve been loving the Buxom Lash Mascara, it gives my lashes ample volume and length, and opens up my eyes. Bonus (6.): Throw on some lip balm! 💋 I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a look at my quick and simple natural everyday makeup routine. Comment below on what your go-to everyday makeup products are, I’d love to know!
