Derma E Mood Rituals

Derma E Mood Rituals

I think if you guys knew what I’ve been up to for the past month you’d be surprised to see a new post up today. To say that I’ve been busy would be a bit of an understatement. For those of you who don’t know, I’m a baker. I run a small catering type bakeshop from home. I only get about a few orders a month, but at least I get to do something I enjoy. Well, last month I decided to take it to the next level and opened up my own online shop. For years I’ve had people telling me that I should open up an online shop, but it seemed like so much work. I was right. It’s a lot of work! I had to switch hosts, migrate one of my own sites (which wasn’t at all the nightmare that I expected it to be), install WooCommerce, try to figure out how to even use WooCommerce… you know what? I won’t bore you with all of the little details. It drove me crazy! But I’m happy to announce that I finally got my shop up and running and I did it all on my own! It’s far from perfect and I expect something to mess up during an update, but I’ll have to worry about that when and if the time comes. Until then I’ll enjoy my little victory.

In the midst of all of that I was pleasantly surprised to receive some of Derma E’s newest products. After stressing so much it was nice to have something shiny and new to play with. Let’s take a look at the new Mood Rituals line from Derma E!

  • CALM Skin Beneficial Mist Mood Enhancing
  • CREATE Mood Enhancing Skin Beneficial Mist
  • UPLIFT Mood Enhancing Skin Beneficial Mist

The Derma E Mood Rituals line blends purified spring water and herbs with essential oils to help enhance your mood. Obviously I reached for CALM Skin Beneficial Mist Mood Enhancing first. CALM Skin Beneficial Mist Mood Enhancing contains lemon, eucalyptus, sage, and rosemary essential oils. It definitely has an herbal scent which I wasn’t too crazy about. Thankfully it didn’t linger. I love how it spritzed perfectly. Some spray bottles aren’t the easiest to work with. This one was perfect. It did tingle a bit at first, then it felt pretty refreshing. I’m not sure if I’d say this gave me a sense of calm, but it did feel nice. I kind of wish this was lavender scented. But I guess that wouldn’t really fit into the herbal waters theme. It’s just that when I think calm I think lavender.

I really love the idea of these facial sprays. I couldn’t wait to try them. One can never have too many facial sprays. I’ll be adding the CALM Skin Beneficial Mist Mood Enhancing to my growing collection of facial sprays. I’ll probably gift one to my mother-in-law because she has become a fan of Derma E’s products. As soon as she sees my post she’s going to ask about it. Hah!

Have you tried anything from the new Derma E Mood Ritual line? What facial spray are you loving at the moment?

Swatch

You probably saw in my looks section of my last post that I ended up giving the Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen another try. Back when I first purchased it I wasn’t that sold on the swatch. I was even less impressed with the way it applied. Although to be fair I did apply it on unprepped lids. I finally used it in a full look and as you can see this baby is anything but a dud.

The Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen comes in two shades. Black and Brown. I purchased the Black shade. I didn’t really get the whole Pretty Easy part of the name until I went to apply this eyeliner. It glided onto my lids so easily! There was no tugging or bleeding. It was perfect! It lasted all day with no issues.

It’s still too soon to tell, but I might just like it more than my trusty Kat Von D… er… KVD Vegan Beauty Tattoo Eyeliner. I’m really happy because this is the first liquid eyeliner I’ve liked in a long time! You can see the Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen in action below.

Overall, I’d have to say the Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen is a winner! I’m really happy that I gave it another chance and that it lived up to its name. I’m even happier to add another liquid eyeliner to my collection. It’s nice to have options.

ColourPop Lilac You A Lot Palette

And now for the piece I’d like to title the palette I didn’t need, but bought anyway. It’s lilac and y’all know that I’m a sucker for purples.

The ColourPop Lilac You A Lot Palette contains 9 eyeshadows in both matte and metallic finishes. The deeper mattes look a little dry in my swatches. Thankfully they applied so much nicer than they swatched. In fact they all applied and blended beautifully. I rarely have issues with their shadows so I’m not at all surprised. The shades all compliment each other beautifully. I do wish there was a nice base shade included. Although I guess it would be a bit much to keep including one in each palette they release. And they seriously have one in every color of the rainbow. But that would be my only issue with this palette.

Like with a few of their other palettes, 4 of the shades are labeled ‘not intended for use in immediate eye area.’ But I see everyone else slapping them shades on so I just go with it. I do try my best not to get it into my eyes though. I haven’t experienced any issues so far and my eyes can be sensitive. I just thought I’d mention it because I didn’t even notice those labels until I was a few palettes in.

You can see a look I created with the Lilac You A Lot Palette below. I used the shades Imagine That, Filtered, Wake Me, and Iffy. I used a shadow from another palette for my brow bone.

Overall, I’d have to say that I love this palette. But I think I’ve been playing it safe. I’m thinking about purchasing the yellow and green palettes. Maybe even the blue. Even though I know I have no business wearing any of those shades. Have you tried any of them? Let me know your thoughts!
