Beauty Story Diamond Royal Jelly Revitalizing Sheet Mask Review

Beauty Story Diamond Royal Jelly Revitalizing Sheet Mask 6

Beauty Story Sheet Masks supposedly contain diamond particles…seriously, people, WTH does that even mean? Diamond particles. Oh stop now!

Diamond promises aside, it does contain a heap load of Royal Jelly Extract so I feel like Queen B when I wear it.

sheet mask

Royal Jelly is derived from the secretions of male worker bees! That’s right bish, gather my honey! Crack the whip! It’s made up of amino acids (among other things, secretions? please child, let’s hope that isn’t what I think it is) and a ton of vitamins and minerals. Some brands harvest it because it’s a great natural skin care ingredient but I just like it because it moisturizers skin all crazy like and improves the general appearance and texture of it! I won’t get into all its great benefits but needless to say Royal Jelly is a rocking ingredient to include in a sheet mask!

Let’s take a peek at Beauty Story Diamond Royal Jelly Revitalizing Sheet Masks!

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot Review, Swatches, Photos

Unbeknownst to me, Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot have been hiding on QVC for a while now. Dude, how did I not know about these?

Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Cream Shadow Pot 34

I’m off my game I guess.

Recently, a few new shades were introduced for Summer and that’s how I learned about these little guys. Each one comes with it’s own brush and is $23.

The formula is made with micronized Amazonian clay which intensifies color pigments all whole working to nourish the skin and reduce surface oil. Sounded like an idea solution for oily skin if it helps reduce surface oil eh? It’s also free from parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum, and other nasties! The shadows promise to create a layer of product that basically wears well through sweat and tears without creasing for hours of wear time.

Let’s see how they perform!

Guerlain Terra Inca Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos

At the beginning of my makeup life and most of my older one I absolutely hated cream eyeshadows for some reason. I just couldn’t stand them. Perhaps it was my lack of patience during application of such a medium or the fact they tended to crease like crazy (circa BUDPP, “Before Urban Decay Primer Potion) but I avoided them like the plague.

I became enamored with them when I discovered the joy of Visee Quad Shining Eyes and ever after that faithful day creams have been a staple of my eyeshadow life.

For Summer 2011, Guerlain introduced three shades of Terra Inca Ombre Fusion Cream Eyeshadow in warm, gorgeous hues to compliment your tan.

Jelly Pong Pong Jelly Flush Review, Swatches, Photos

Jelly Pong Pong Jelly Flush 18

The warm weather has set in. I’m looking forward to a heated New York Summer, let’s hope this good weather lasts because if you live around these parts you’ve probably been way disappointed at our lack of Spring.

Jumping in the Summer I’m already stocking up on facial mists, lightweight moisturizers, and cheeks stains! I love naturally flushed cheeks in the Summer with minimal to no eye makeup so I’m all about hunting out the best cheek stains of the moment.

I tried out Jelly Pong Pong Jelly Flush which is quite a dupe-tastic version of Tarte’s legendary Cheek Stains.

Let’s take a peek!
