I first heard about Cheekbone Cosmetics the same way I learn about most things these days, through social media. I was interested in the brand once I read that it was created by a First Nations woman from Canada and that 10% of the profits are donated to Indigenous education.
So, I decided to reach out and see if they would be interested in sending me some products in exchange for a review. They sent me three matte liquid lipsticks and an eyebrow shaper to try. I was surprised how quickly everything came considering it was shipped from Canada.
I’ve got to be honest. Before opening the package, I was worried.
I hoped and prayed I would like their products because I love supporting Native and Aboriginal businesses, but sometimes the products fall flat. (I really hate it when that happens.)
Their liquid lipsticks, in particular, are nothing short of incredible! The formula they use is better than any other wet-to-dry matte lipstick I’ve ever used and I’ve tried them all. (Seriously.) The color lasts for hours (even after eating!), there are no parabens, they’re virtually odor-free and they’re safe for sensitive skin. And, if you like lighter shades you are probably well aware that most brands often look streaky due to subpar formulas. Well, that’s not the case with Cheekbone. The color looks just as it should every time, no matter how much (or how little) you apply. They make about a dozen different shades, so if you’re not sure where to begin, try ASHLEY. It’s my absolute favorite shade and looks amazing on anyone!
They later sent me their highlight palette (Stardust) and their contour palette (Earth). I absolutely adore the highlight palette! The lightest color, in particular, is my jam. The pigment is very rich and provides a really beautiful highlight. I was pleasantly surprised that the contour palette was a perfect match for my skin tone, too.
If you’ve never heard of Cheekbone, I highly suggest you give the brand a try. What’s more, the products are cruelty free!
