Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Fig and Lychee

Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle

New to my makeup stash is the Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Fig and Lychee, and I am REALLY happy about this budding friendship.

This is yet ANOTHER discovery I found out about from Nicole from Young Wild and Polished. I swear, I need to stop watching her videos because I am going to wind up living in a cardboard box!

I don’t think these are necessarily new products but they are to me. So what the heck are they? They are a four-in-one air-whipped souffle product. They have powder to add a pop of color, stain to give staying power, illuminating highlighter, and cream to deliver a gorgeous finish. They are water-resistant, hydrating and buildable. But the best part (aside from the pretty colors) is that they are delightfully squishy! Yep, there’s that texture obsession I have rearing its head again.

They come in six shades:

  • Fig/Opal – nude infused with golden opal
  • Lychee/Opal – bubblegum pink infused with golden opal
  • Raspberry/Opal – raspberry infused with golden opal
  • Guava/Moonstone – coral infused with pale gold
  • Watermelon/Moonstone – coral red infused with pale gold
  • Papaya/Topaz – bright tangerine red infused with golden bronze

Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask

Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask

Many moons ago I purchased the Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask at Sephora because it looked cool. And it had the word “rose” in it. Seriously! Remember last week when I said I had been known to purchase things because of the texture? This pink concoction looked like it had the coolest texture and the color, the color!!

Ok but really I also was kind of hoping it would do something to my face because it wasn’t exactly cheap. This is what they have to say about the product: Cutting-edge plant biotechnology isolates and replicates the perfect rose stem cells for maximum anti-age repair. With state-of-the-art, 21st century breakthrough stem cell technology, five rose stem cells are blended with four rose extracts in a cooling, rejuvenating gel to help stimulate cell turnover for younger looking skin. Helps repair the signs of aging, including the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dehydration, dullness and sagging as it strengthens and tones the look of skin. Reveals silky soft, radiant, beautiful and youthful-looking skin.

Sounds promising, yes?

Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Smart Gel BB in Light/Medium

Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Smart Gel BB

Awhile back, actually now that I think about it it was like 3 months ago, I was at Sephora checking out the Dr. Jart+ products when I saw the Water Fuse Smart Gel BB. They had a couple of tester containers open so I dipped my finger in one. Lo and behold it had the coolest, jelly-like texture!

If you don’t already know this about me, then let me tell you, I love a product with a strange texture. I have been known to buy things for the texture alone. But I have actually loved a Dr. Jart+ BB cream in the past, so I figured I would try this one out and see if I loved it as much. It comes in just two shades: Light-medium and Medium-dark, so I chose Light-medium. I comes with this little plastic scoop-thingie which you can use to apply it, but I prefer my fingers or a sponge.
