Ahhh the Asian sheet mask. Not quite so popular in the US but within Japan, Korea, Etc…sheet masks are all the rage and a common part of an Asian girl’s (or guy) daily skincare regime and cheap as day old chips in most cases. I got a few requests asking if I could review some of my very favorite sheet masks from Asia so I thought I’d go ahead and get some reviews up of ones I love.
My fav of the moment, and of course all the rage with everyone, are from Beauty Diary a Taiwanese brand. My Beauty Diary Masks could prove popular because of their cute design or possibly because they have such a variety of masks to suit all skin types. Whatever the case may be they are some of my favorites at the moment.
Today I’ll be discussing the My Beauty Diary Cooling Mask.
Have a jump for the details!
I’ve been wanting to haul from Shopping99 for a while now but never got around to it. Mainly I wanted the Mugu Peach Makeup Collection they had going on. It was cheap, it was cute, and it smelled of peaches. What more could a girl want? My obsession with peach makeup stems from the Etude House Peach line that I got a while back ago so of course the Mugu stuff was topping my must have it list for a fair while.
I just never got around to actually doing my order but I was recently pleasantly surprised when my mate Rows included the Mugu Peach Liquid Foundation in a box she sent over to me.
You’ve no idea how excited I was about this foundation, it’s just too cute.
Take a jump for the word!
Today the mail bag contains a question about concealers! The Muse is ALWAYS up for discussing concealer with you guys so jump ahead to hear the word!
To think I was just bragging to you how my skin is bulletproof but wanna know one thing that makes me break out like a teenager? Freaking Benefit Dr. Feelgood!
The cute packaging slays me but man oh man this stuff breaks me out something fierce. I have no idea what causes the problem but damn straight I get a face full of pimples whenever I attempt trying it out.
Shills Miss Perfect Pores Hide recently captured my attention. Knowing how bad Dr. FeelGood is for my skin didn’t really stop me from wanting to try this out regardless. It’s the packaging, the damn packaging does me in every single time.
One of my greatest discoveries from Shills (aside from a BB Cream you’ll learn about soon) is the Pore Hide & Heel Cream. Although I don’t suffer large pores I still can appreciate the flawless finish of my face after using Shills Pore Hide & Heel Cream.
Simply loving this for Summer wear!

Shills is a Taiwanese brand not available within the US. You can haul it from evil-bay or if you’re lucky enough to have a friend abroad they can probably grab it for you!
Shills Pore Hide & Heel Cream is a hard textured cake cream housed in a cute vintage style tin a la Benefit Dr. Feel Good. Sadly, Dr. Feel Good and I never got oh so well so I was every so slightly scared to try this out but turns out it’s incredibly different in so many ways when compared to Benefit’s version. One key factor is the fact that it’s tinted where as Dr. Feel Good is simply transparent.
Where as Benefit’s version is a silky primer this is actually a tinted balm. You can use it in a few ways one of which would be to prep your face with it. As a step prior to your regular foundation you can use Pore Hide & Heel as a prep to fill pores and prep skin for foundation. I can’t speak for it hiding pores as mine aren’t large at all but it does create a near perfect finish for foundation. It’s other use would be to smooth on and apply blush for very light Summer coverage. It’s not incredibly pigmented but it has enough pigment to cover minor problem areas, even out skin tone, and create a nice flawless, youthful finish to skin.
Although unappealing in the tin the product has a nice silky, cream texture that dries down to a powder. Although it works well at mattifying my skin at the moment I probably won’t be able to use in the Winter when my skin is drier as I imagine this will pill or flake up.
It’s perfect for throwing in my bag for quickie touch ups on the fly as well so I’m not worrying about applying powder or foundation. Smooth this on with the enclosed sponge applicator, add a little blush and I’m looking collected and in order once again.
Overall, I think it’s worthy of a hunt down. It’s an all around great product and pretty cheap as well. I paid around $7 but I’ve seen it around for $12-$13 which I think is a fair price as the product is decent.
Shills Pore Hide & Heal Cream is one of those perfect little makeup treats for creating beautiful, lasting coverage for warm, humid days.
