BeautyMate Intelligent Soft 9-in-1 CC Cream

BeautyMate Intelligent Soft CC Cream

BeautyMate Intelligent Soft 9-in-1 CC Cream was a spontaneous purchase I made recently from E-bay seller AlphabeautyUK. Beauty Mate is a Tawainese brand you may have heard of as they make a line of facial sheet masks.

This one is a white, self adapting CC Cream which I was happy about since I really love the color adapting technology of Tony Moly Luminous Pure Aura CC Cream. This formula really works for me which is one reason that I purchased BeautyMate’s formula!

Let’s take a look!

Urban Decay Illuminating Naked Beauty Balm Review & Swatches

Urban Decay Illuminating Naked Beauty Balm3

Urban Decay Illuminating Naked Beauty Balm will be launching shortly with the Urban Decay Summer Nights Summer 2014 Collection. This BB Cream is a follow up to Urban Decay’s original Naked Skin Beauty Balm that launched for Spring 2013.

Although not a traditional BB Cream the original formula impressed me. You do have to keep an open mind with Urban Decay Illuminating Naked Beauty Balm because this nor does the original formula actually offer the coverage of a more traditional fully pigmented Asian BB Cream.

This new formula actually adds radiance to skin. The texture is pretty much identical to the original but the shade is very slightly darker and it has fine silver shimmer.

Take a look!

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask Review & Swatches

Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask

Dry lips? Cracked? Flaky? You NEED the Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask my friends.

I happen to be the girl that applies lip balms and such prior to heading to bed at night. I have drier lips in the winter, fairly normal in the Summer. But man when they are dry, they are DRY! Red, flaky, angry at the world, etc…It’s not a fun experience.

I love lip scrubs and the like so when I saw Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask for the first time I was all, “Cool, a lip mask!” not really understanding what it meant. I kinda assumed it was something you’d apply and wash off.

Not the case!

MAC Sea Me Hear Me Extra Dimension Blush Review & Swatches

MAC Sea Me Hear Me Extra Dimension Blush3

MAC Sea Me Hear Me Extra Dimension Blush is one of two, limited edition blushes that launched with the MAC Alluring Aquatics Summer 2014 Collection.

I’m not a huge MAC Extra Dimension Blush as they have been terribly sheer. And for some odd reason I got it into my head they were supposed to have a metallic finish but they do not! I always though the Extra Dimension Blushes should have more glow, more pigment, more everything…but they never quite lived up to what I expected from them.

However, MAC Sea Me Hear Me Extra Dimension Blush changed my mind!
