Swatches: Deep, Tan, Medium, Light, Fair

When I first heard about these new Tinted Moisturizing BB Creams from Derma E I couldn’t wait to try them. My skin is far from perfect, but some days I’d be ok walking out the door with a light tinted moisturizer. Especially in this heat.

Derma E Tinted Moisturizing BB Cream

The Derma E Tinted Moisturizing BB Cream comes in 5 shades. Fair, Light, Medium, Tan, and Deep. It’s enriched with Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Bilberry Extract. I didn’t really detect much of a scent which is a huge plus for me. I used the shade Light and found it to be a pretty decent match. Keeping in mind that it’s just a tinted moisturizer and not a foundation, I’d say it still did a pretty good job at evening out my skin tone. You can definitely still see some redness and blemishes poking through. But it doesn’t claim to be full coverage. After testing this out I ran out to grab a different tinted moisturizer to see how it would compare. Honestly I felt like the other one was a much better match and it provided a lot more coverage. But I broke out badly. I also happened to take my passport photo the day I tested it and the flashback was just horrible. I look shiny and now I’m stuck with that photo for years! I’m definitely not happy. I really wish I had worn the Derma E instead.

I think it’s a nice tinted moisturizer. It’s not something I’d wear on a night out, but I’d definitely wear it to the beach or to run errands. I’m also planing to take it with me on vacation. I really don’t want to fuss over makeup. I was looking for something lightweight that offered sun protection and this BB Cream does just that. I think you’ll like it if that’s what you’re looking for too. But if you’re looking for a whole lot of coverage you might be disappointed. The shade selection might be tricky for some. They do say that you can mix their BB Creams to blend and find your perfect match, but really who wants to buy 2-3 tubes just to find a perfect match? That’s not very practical.

Duchess of Soapshire

Duchess of Soapshire

A former blogger friend recently got her Etsy shop up and running. I remember her talking about her soaps shortly before she shut her blog down. I was pretty excited to see what she created, but when I hadn’t heard from her I assumed she got too busy. Well, she was busy. Busy creating! When she reached out to me to see if I’d review some of her soaps I excitedly said yes.

The name of her shop is Duchess of Soapshire. I love it! What sets her shop apart from the rest is that her soaps are named after notable people of history. She takes it a step further by including ingredients from the regions of these notable people. Even the molds used fit nicely into her theme tying it up into a perfect little package. Lots of thought went into this and it shows. The owner also donates 15% of profits to charity every month. So with every purchase not only are you treating yourself to a little luxury, but you’re giving back in the process. Well done, Chris!

You can see the two soaps I chose below.

Rokeya Jasmine Soap

Rokeya Jasmine Soap

Rokeya Jasmine Soap was named after Begum Rokeya. You can follow this link to the listing to read more about Rokeya. This soap contains jasmine. It is shaped to resemble the lotus flower which is the national flower of India.

The soaps come in the cutest wax lined bags. I had actually placed the Rokeya Jasmine Soap in my shower to use later on, but my husband had taken his shower first. When he got out he was telling me to feel how soft his arms were. I asked him what he used and when he told me ‘that fancy new soap’ I just squinted my eyes and told him that was MY soap! Hah! He really seems to enjoy it and hasn’t used anything else since. The bar itself is gorgeous and smells like jasmine. It doesn’t leave behind much of a scent on your skin, but it did leave my skin feeling super soft. It didn’t leave behind a residue or icky dry feeling. In fact it was very moisturizing. My husband and I were both pleasantly surprised. The Amelio Aloe Vera Soap doesn’t really have much of a scent, but was equally beautiful and moisturizing. Although I think my husband and I both favored the Rokeya Jasmine Soap. It truly is a beautiful soap.

Overall, I must say that I’m impressed with Duchess of Soapshire. I love the concept and I love the product. Chris tells me that she’s working on lots of new things. I’m not sure I can share any of that with you all, but know that I will be all over it once it hits her shop. So be on the lookout for more Duchess of Soapshire goodies in the future!

Are y’all sick of my Kylie Cosmetics posts yet? I only had 3 products to share so this is the last of it. I couldn’t resist The Blue Honey Palette. Those teal shades are gorgeous! This palette was a must have for me.

The Kylie Cosmetics Blue Honey Palette contains 9 eyeshadows. For a small palette it sure does have a nice combination of metallics and mattes including a nice base shade. It always surprises me when a palette doesn’t contain one. I know I have so many in other palettes, but it’s nice to be able to create a full look using just the one palette. No need to reach for another. I’m especially digging the shade Royal Jelly which is a pretty metallic teal with gold duochrome. I only hope my swatch does it justice.

The shadows are all nicely pigmented. They applied and blended beautifully! I love pairing Blue Honey and Royal Jelly together. In fact for my look I applied Blue Honey on my lid and layered Royal Jelly on top. I really love how it turned out. You can see my look below.

Overall, I have to say it’s a cute palette. It even contains a few unique shades that I didn’t already have in my collection.

Have you tried The Blue Honey Palette? I feel like this will be a fun palette to use this Summer.
