Had enough of cherry blossoms yet? There’s another way to enjoy the cherry blossom season. My Beauty Diary’s Japanese Cherry Blossom Mask. I received these courtesy of Yesstyle a few weeks ago. Perfect for the season. This particular mask is for mostly for relaxing but offers some brightening and restoring elements as well. It contains aloe for moisturizing which I need as my dry winter skin makes the change into spring.
Brightening, Soothing and Regenerating
All skin types, especially dull and tired skin
I enjoyed this mask a lot. It has a sweet scent and it very soothing. It hasn’t caused any breakouts either and feels like a good “whenever” mask just for a relaxing moment.
Yesterday I received this Shu Uemura lipstick compliments of Yesstyle. The shade is PK 315 – a soft baby pink with a neutral undertone. It’s a creamy but somewhat sheer shade from their Rouge Unlimited line. The color builds easily. I found dabbing it on lightly is great for a matte pink lip. It’s creamy but feels a little dry since I’m always wearing slick lip balm. I’ve used both a gloss and clear stick balm over the lipstick today and it blends great with no feathering or creasing when adding the top layer. I’m wearing it alone in the photo below taken right after work today.
The color reminds me of two other lipsticks I’ve used. First, the texture and color are reminiscent of MAC’s St. Germain. However Shu Uemura’s lipstick is more forgiving in color payoff and moisturizing. It’s easily made to look subtle and doesn’t crease the way my MAC St. Germain constantly would.
The other lip item it reminds me of is Baby Lips Pink Wink.
(Which is a limited shade in the duo pack.) I actually think the Baby Lips would be a great dupe for this. Though the Shu Uemura lipstick lasts much longer with less fading and isn’t shimmery like Baby Lips, the Baby Lips is more moisturizing and also bubble gum flavored.
This is my first Shu Uemura lipstick and I’m a bit obsessed with the packaging. It’s sorta a little futuristic. The case catches the light so beautifully and it just has this overall feeling of sleekness in its design.
