Beauty Find - Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask


Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask 

I recently shared with you one of my favorite new face cleansers, Blueberry Bounce Gentle Cleanser from a new Korean skincare brand, Glow Recipe.  Now I want to tell you about their Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask that's gained such a following it's sold out multiple times on Sephora.


From the gorgeous glass container, to the authentic, fresh watermelon scent, this mask is the perfect everyday skin treat. Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask has a unique, bouncy, texture and is lightweight and oil free.  It can be used as a traditional mask that you keep on for 15 minutes and rinse off, or an overnight mask, (which doesn't transfer onto your sheets)!

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask is a soothing, hydrating mask made with real watermelon extract, hyaluronic acid and gentle AHAs that work to clarify, exfoliate and hydrate dry and dull skin.




I loved how silky smooth the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask  felt when I applied it. I took in the soft, yummy watermelon scent when I opened the cap and scooped a dime-sized amount out with the included miniature spoon. The texture is a liquid/gel hybrid that spreads easily. 

The thin layer I applied sank into my skin within a few seconds.  In the morning my skin was soft, smooth and brighter.  I then either rinsed with water, or a spritz of Evian - Brumisateur Facial Spray  patted with a soft tissue and I was ready to apply my makeup.  After using for several weeks, I was addicted to the feel and look of my skin in the morning.





When traveling, I also liked using Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask  as a daily mask - especially right after a long flight when I got to my hotel, or after a day out at the beach/outdoors to refresh and hydrate.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask will work on all skin types, even sensitive. If you have very dry skin, you'll be able to add a thicker layer before going to bed to see even greater results.  

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask should become a staple in your skincare routine.  Pick it up now before it sells out again! - RLB

Beauty Find - Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette




Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Naked Heat 12 x 0.05 oz/ 1.3 g
This year, a burnt orange/reddish brown "sunset" eye, and a bronzy-rose gold, smokey eye have become some of the most popular beauty looks.



Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Naked Heat is a beautiful collection of shades that allow you to easily recreate both these trendier looks, as well as more natural, nude and classic smoky eyes.



The new Naked Heat palette includes 12 shades, along with a dual-sided brush.  The shades are evenly divided between warm, creamy beige and brown shades, golden pink shades and deeper reddish and orange shades.






Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Naked Heat
What's genius about these shades is that even if you who like to stick to neutral shades,  Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Naked Heat  still gives you access to those, but with a nice upgrade to warmer and redder shades which are still flattering and easy to wear with all skin tones (see swatches below).

As with all of the Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palettes I've tried in the past, the pigmentation is excellent, the shadows are smooth, creamy and easily blendable.  Once on, they did not flake or fall out on my lashes/cheeks. I always wear primer, and I got at least 8+ hours with no fading.





All the shades worked together, and some standouts are: Lumbre (shimmer), He Devil, En Fuego and Ashes.  Out of the 12  shades, there are five shimmer/metallic shades, and the rest are matte.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette Naked Heat is by far one of the most exciting eyeshadow products to come out this summer!  Worth every penny. - RLB

Beauty Find- NARS PowerMatte Lip Pigment


NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment - Slow Ride 

I love that the new NARS new collection of weightless, liquid matte lip colors literally has a shade for everyone - and that they're all named after great songs from every decade.


NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment is the matte lip color that many of you have been searching for. It has a thin, lightweight, non sticky texture and applies like an ink to your lips to instantly lock in color.  It also has a doe-foot applicator which is not too thin or wide, and hugs your lips, which made applying it easy


NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment Swatches 
The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment formula went on smoothly and evenly with just one coat.  I was even able to line my lips with the end of the applicator tip. It dried instantly to a natural matte finish (it did not look powder dry - but they had just a touch of sheen which made the shades look beautiful and natural).,

The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment is opaque after 1 layer, but it can also be layered for a more intense effect, without drying out lips either.

During the day the color remained a stain even through drinking and eating. The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment didn't dry out my lips, flake and most importantly it didn't transfer to clothes, skin etc.  I only needed to touch up once late in the day to refresh the shade.

The NARS Powermatte Lip Pigment collection is made up of four main color categories, Nude, Pink, Red and Berry*.  While I gravitate toward nude shades, I found a lot of pretty, bold reds and pinks that I also loved when I wanted to switch up my look.

Some of my favorites were the Slow Ride  (pictured, top), a soft, brown pink that works with many different skin tones as a nude shade.  I also loved the NARS online exclusiveJust What I Needed, a pretty, burnished rose. 

As for reds, I fell in love with  Don't Stop  a pretty Geranium red (pictured, left), with a touch of orange. For a deeper brick red, Starwoman was also beautiful.
