Beauty Find - MILK MAKEUP Watermelon Brightening Serum




MILK MAKEUP Watermelon Brightening Serum

Not only does MILK MAKEUP Watermelon Brightening Serum include one of my new favorite skin care ingredients - watermelon, but a serum in a stick is fantastic idea.  I shared with you how much I loved the MILK MAKEUP KUSH High Volume Mascara Boom a few weeks ago, and now I've got another go-to from the MILK MAKEUP line.

MILK MAKEUP Watermelon Brightening Serum is a solid serum that works to hydrate skin and diminish the appearance of dark spots with a combination of Swiss garden cress sprout extract, and watermelon fruit extract, and matrixyl which smooths by supporting skin’s elasticity Not only that, it's very cute and a TSA-friendly solid formula for all your travel needs.


Applying MILK MAKEUP Watermelon Brightening Serum was easy.  It gilded over my skin and felt light and refreshing.  It hydrated my drier areas, while not making my oily t zone more oily.  Immediately after applying it, it did have a slightly tacky feel, but within a few minutes in completely absorbed into my skin giving my a natural glow with no stickiness or residue.  I applied MILK MAKEUP Watermelon Brightening Serum before bed and loved how my skin was soft, supple and glowing in the morning.  On very hot mornings, I applied it  chilled a bit in the refrigerator as a primer before makeup and it worked well.

After using MILK MAKEUP Watermelon Brightening Serum daily for a few weeks I did notice how nice my skin looked - brighter, smooth and consistently hydrated 


Note:  Unlike some of the other Watermelon based skincare I've featured on the blog, MILK MAKEUP Watermelon Brightening Serum is not scented - so no watermelon scent to go with the refreshing sensation.  This may be a plus or minus for some of you, but for me, since I was more than happy with the results, non-scented was not an issue for me.

If you're looking for an easy, quick and convenient skin serumMILK MAKEUP Watermelon Brightening Serum is one to choose for real results (and it's cute too!).  - RLB

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask has the same scent as the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist , a relaxing light floral.  I loved how soft and soothing the mask felt and there was a very generous amount of serum in the mask, but it wasn't drenching wet.  After I was finished with the mask, there was still enough serum left over for me to massage into my skin, chest, neck and even my hands/upper arms for additional hydration.  My skin felt hydrated and had a beautiful glow after all the serum had absorbed into my skin.

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask is a great mask to use after a long flight (or on it if you don't mind masking in public), in the morning for makeup prep, or just a relaxing evening before bed.  When I used the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask as a pre-overnight skincare treatment after cleansing, my skin was soft, supple and still glowing in the morning.

Beauty Find - Farsali Jelly Bean Illuminator


FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator Rose Goals 

File FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator Rose Goals  under new beauty products that can give you that long lasting,  little extra "something" for your skin, with very little effort. 



FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator 
FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator has an innovative bouncy gel texture, loaded with pigment.  The finish is high shine, yet without any oily look or feel.  

It glides effortlessly onto the skin, starting off with a cool wet feel.  Within seconds it dries down to a shimmery, powder finish.  Note:  I found it best to NOT mix the Jelly Beam Illuminator before applying it.  Apply it directly from it's slightly lumpy state in the jar.

I loved that it''s so concentrated, less than a pea sized amount was enough for my average highlighting needs such as along the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, brown bone, etc.





With a light layer of FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator Rose Goals  the highlighting effect is bright, but not over the top.  If you want intense highlighting, all it takes is another layer or two. Since it dries down and sets quickly, for best results, you should know exactly where you want to apply it before you begin.  I loved the Rose Goals shade (shown, above). which enhanced my brown skin tone.  There are two more shades, Glazed and GlowUp, available as well.

I got great results applying FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator Rose Goals  with my fingers, as well as with a highlighting brush.

FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator Rose Goals was not only beautiful but the glow lasted all day.  I got great results using on bare skin as well as over foundation. Tip: FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator Rose Goals  is also beautiful as an eye shadow for day or night time looks.


During the day the highlight didn't smudge or become oily or greasy.  FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator Rose Goals   didn't cake up or become dry or flaky as the day went on.  My highlighter looked as fresh at 9 pm as it did at 7 am. If you are obsessed with highlighters, treat yourself to FARSALI Jelly Beam Illuminator Rose Goals  this summer for long lasting, effortless highlighting. - RLB
