REVIEW ♥ Studio Gear True Whipped Stain Gloss ♥



I don't know if you know this about me but I love lipstick. No, I mean I reallllly love it. I could probably have a million lipsticks and still want more. Lipstick makes me feel soo much more fabulous when I'm wearing it....just a little bit more powerful and dangerous. I'm not the only on, right? 


 I pretty much JUMPED AT THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW ALL FIVE OF THESE PRETTY LIQUID LIPSTICKS FROM STUDIO GEAR. They're called True Whipped Stain Gloss...they're supposed to leave a stain on your lips for long lasting color throughout the day. They apply like a lip gloss...going on smooth and moist and then dry to a lovely matte finish. I love the matte look they give my lips! The boxes that the  lipsticks come in, come in the same color as the lipstick...simple but striking. I think they would look lovely lined up on a vanity. 


I really like the packaging. You can see the colors clearly through the tubes & they look so pretty all lined up! The LIPSTICKS are super pigmented and apply smoothly. They're very lightweight feeling...you almost don't know you have any lipstick on. I find they do last throughout the day even through drinking tea (Yep, I love my tea!!) and eating yummy things like chicken avocado salads....it was soo good peeps. heehee...


The lip glosses come with a doe applicator and you only need one swipe of the lipstick to be fully opaque on your lips. It's that fabulous. Look how pigmented it it pretties! I'm wearing true red below. *wink*



THERE ARE FIVE COLORS THAT COME IN THESE STAIN lip glosses.

From top to bottom in the photo below here they are. 

♡ TRUE FUCHSIA.
Probably my favorite color. I love pink! 

 TRUE PEBBLE.  
I was kind of worried about this color and didn't think it would look good on me. Looking in the mirror after putting it on I still wasn't sure. But I snapped a few selfies and frankly, it looks really pretty! I was kind of surprised. 

♡ True Red. 
Yep, looks awesome on me. Red is pretty much fabulous.

♡ True wine. 
Love this color. I love dark vivid lip colors. 

♡ True burgundy.
This was another one I wasn't sure about...*wrinkles nose* burgundy is not really my favorite color but again SURPRISINGLY looks wonderful! 


Below I'm wearing TRUE PEBBLE....such a lovely color right? Would love lovely with a manicure in a pinky beige color with pops of hot pink.
and can i just say how freaking gorgeous my eyes look in this photo...man, when light hits them the right way they pop, don't they? *wink*


To see more photos of these gorgeous lip glosses on me to see how pigmented and gorgeous they really are...just go follow my instagram! These are so lovely and I'm so happy I got the chance to try them out. I definitely think I will purchase these when mine run out. *dimple*

But if you want to go get some right now how about a 10% discount for all my fabulous readers?! Just use code: cherrylips16 when purchasing at their website. I love a good discount! :)

What do you think about them? What's your favorite color or have you tried Studio Gear before?

REVIEW ♥ Weekend Nail Aesthetics ♥

Sunday, May 1, 2016

le sigh...the weekend is almost over and I'm not ready to stART A NEW WEEK AGAIN. It's been pretty slow lately with a few orders here and there. I'm currently working on a massive order for our fabulous stockist Bella Dawna Boutique in Aptos, CA so if you're in the area make sure to check them out. *wink*

Plus, I'm contemplating redoing the website into something simpler to make it easier to search and consolidating our pretty potions into the best selling ones so if you have a scent or product you'd like to see stay just comment below!! 



I'M ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR PRETTY NEW NAIL POLISH & THESE SWEETIES ARE SOOO AFFORDABLE I GOT THREE OF THEM TO TRY OUT. I'M SO GLAD I DID BECAUSE I LOVE THEM! I GOT THEM AT WALMART BUT I THINK YOU CAN GET THEM AT DOLLAR STORES AS WELL as online. (See below) They cost between $1.50 to $1.99.

I GOT TWO OF MY FAVORITE COLORS, PINK (FOREVER) AND MINT (TRADITION). PLUS, A THIRD ONE IN A NEON CORAL COLOR (FRILL). TOPCOAT I USED IS SECHE VITE.

My favorite color was definitely the pink one. They all needed two to three coats to be completely opaque. Sometimes they could be a little streaky but I love the fact that there were no air bubbles when I painted my nails. With other brands I sometimes would get air bubbles...blech... 



Look how pretty the pink came out...super smooth with a top coat of the seche Vite.  They lasted for about a week and didn't chip. I just had to redo some nails as they grew. 





This is the neon coral one...Frill. Vibrant!!! I would totally recommend these peeps. I'm currently wearing the mint color which you can see up at my Instagram. That one was a little harder to apply to my nails with it being a little bit thicker than the other ones but it's so pretty! 

Hmm, maybe I should revisit adding nail polish to our shop. I might have to look into that. *wink* 

Want to get some for yourself? Get the nail polish HERE!
Here's to the start to a fabulous new week!

INSPO ♥ The Power of the Red Lip ♥

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

WHAT BETTER INSPO FOR the beginning of the week THAN RED LIPSTICK?! I KNOW SOME PEEPS GET THE MONDAY BLUES BUT JUST ADD SOME RED LIPSTICK AND OF COURSE, HIGH HEELS AND GET KICKING MONDAY'S BUTT and every other day of the week too. i think probably my favorite cosmetic is lipstick. I always wear it, can't live without it actually. 

Here's a little inspo for you to get your week brightened up! 





I have to admit I'm with Taylor here...I think I do look better with red lipstick then without it. Funny enough, I've only been wearing the color red for a year or so now! and I've become quite ADDICTED to it. 
Two of my favorite things! Lipstick and high heels! Am I right or what?

Here's a list of some of my favorites red lippies I want to try or I think you should try out. Let me know in the comments if you have a favorite red lippie or have tried any of these pretties out. Mwah beauties! 

OOTD ♥ The Little Ballerina Black Dress ♥

Wednesday, April 20, 2016


I've been itching to do an #OOTD post for awhile but you'd think it was a cliche saying, "I don't have anything to wear!" but i swear I don't really. 

I haven't gotten any new outfits in months and I'm so craving to go shopping to be honest with you. #thestruggleisreal

Anyway, I was going through my clothes and magically came across this little black dress from asos I had gotten last summer but somehow forgot about. 

I call it the ballerina little black dress because it kind of reminds me of the leotards ballerinas wear with the scoop neckline. Don't you think? Just add a frilly little black tie around skirt and pink ballerina slippers & you'd think I was one! 


I paired it with pops of pink!! with my LA Colors nail polish (Blog post coming soon about that...you'll want to check these nail polishes out as they're so gosh darn affordable and really quite nice!) and pretty pink pastel pumps.


I adore the back of this dress! How can something so simple be so chic! 


are these not the prettiest pastel pink heels ever?!


ahhhh, looooove this color of nail polish! It looks a little purply in this photo but it's really a hot BUBBLEGUM pink color. #ilovepink


  Outfit details  
dress // asos // New look bodycon dress // similar here
shoes // pastel pink pumps // similar here


Haha, I find is so strange that I seem to gravitate towards the color black in my WARDROBE. I really need to add more vibrant colors and pastels to my clothing rather than my accessories. I guess that means I'll just have to keep trying harder and that means more shopping! No complaints here. *gigglE* What do you think of this dress?

MUSIC ♥ Halsey Castle (The Huntsman: Winter’s War Version) ♥

Monday, April 18, 2016

OMG! It's monday again! I'm starting it off with some music. I've always got something playing in the background when I'm working or taking a bubble bath. *giggle* I just can't get through my day without some sweet tunes.

Today I'm pretty obsessed with the artist Halsey, also known as Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, especially her new song "castle" which is featured in the movie, "The huntsman: Winter's War".

I can't wait to see it!!! Here's a little video of the official music video, some photos of the ultra cool halsey (I adore her blue hair!!!) and a preview of the movie for you pretty kittens. *wink*

Want to learn a little more about halsey visit her instagram or Tumblr!  


Crazy in love with her blue hair!


♡ I've got this song stuck in my head now! lol... 







One of my favorite actresses is Charlize Theron so I'm pretty excited to see this movie plus, ya know, I'm a sucker for fairy tales. 

♡ Have a beautiful Monday pretties. See you on my next post!
