an introduction to CYO cosmetics ♡

  • hello loves!

    i wanted to share with all of you one of my favorite affordable cosmetic lines, CYO!

    CYO is a brand from the U.K. (i think from Boots, which is a drugstore??) and they are known for their very simple, no-stress makeup that is targeted towards teens & young people. however, i feel like their makeup could (obviously) be used by anyone of any age.

    CYO is only available on in America or in select Walgreens stores. i'm hoping they will expand their brand to Target or a few more popular drug stores in the U.S.

    here are some of my favorite CYO products! :

    CYO Long Lasting Lifeproof Foundation, $7
    my holy grail foundation! i am almost on my third bottle, lol.
    this is a very natural-looking foundation and works well even on oily skin types (i am combination/oily). it is so beautiful to apply and comfortable to wear all day. good medium-full coverage that covers my skin's imperfections. it's made with vitamin E which is why i think it feels so nourishing and looks stunning. (i swear it just looks nicer as the day wears on.) i think the shade range could use some work, but this was a base product sent from heaven for me. and it's only $7! even next to the other high-end girlies, she outranks.

    CYO Turn On The Light Illuminating Mixing Cream, $5
    W-O-W. this illuminator is comparable to high-end products as well. it gives you such a radiant, inner glow––perfect for a night out or when you're taking photos and don't want to look dull. i mix this with the foundation if i want to look extra glowy.

    CYO Crush On Metal Metallic Eyeshadow, $4
    if you're looking for something bold and wanna ball on a budget, try these metal eyeshadows. i have the shade 'college crush' and it was a wise addition to my makeup collection.

    CYO All Set Fixing Powder, $5
    let me give it to you straight: it's unscented, works on multiple skin tones, blurs pores, has a little shine, and keeps your makeup set ALL. DAY.

    CYO Shimmer Switch, $5
    i am obsessed with this. does not emphasize texture & gives such a brilliant sweep of highlight.

    CYO No Shine Zone Matte Foundation, $6
    this is a super duper full-coverage, comfortable matte foundation that i am very much in love with. it's a bit of an unrequited love, though, since they do not have a shade light enough for me.

    okay, i am too lazy to share any more faves, but please check out CYO! you are missing out! here is their online shop on Walgreens.
