Tony Moly I’m Real Sheet Masks Review

Hello beauties!

I have been attempting to improve my skin care game and picked up two adorable Tony Moly I’m Real sheet masks from Urban Outfitters. They were basically free because I had a $5 off coupon from their app, which I highly recommend. Just for downloading it you get 10℅, which could help if you’re planning on dropping cash here. $5 coupons rack up pretty quick too, even just by using the app. I am not sponsored by Tony Moly or UO btw. Here are the masks below:

They’re also sold at Ulta for a similar price and on Amazon in bulk, which is much cheaper. (11 masks for about $13) They’re also available in single or 3-packs on Ebay from Korean sellers at a bit cheaper price currently.

Tony Moly offers so many options and such cute packaging that I was hard pressed to pick out which ones I wanted to try. Since the skin issues I want to address the most are enlarged pores, acne, and redness, I got the seaweed mask and red wine mask, which claim to be for “skin purifying” and “pore care” respectively.

I found the seaweed mask to be highly hydrating and soothing. There was a very mild perfumey fragrance but I did not mind it at all.

Its description on Ulta’s site claims the mask has a micro emulsion-based essence that cleanses your skin”and that it’s formulated with avocado extract to deliver needed nutrients deep within the skin…” This is supposed to occurr in 20-30 mins, the recommended time, but of course you can always leave these masks on longer.

Overall I noticed a reduction in redness and a plumpness/fullness to the skin I liked, probably because of the mask’s hydrating qualities. I saw a slight reduction in the size of my pimples, and in the dry patches I had as well.

Ulta’s site claims the mask is formulated with red wine extract to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores while tightening and purifying skin giving you a healthier looking complexion in as little as 20 minutes.” I really enjoyed the scent of the red wine mask mostly because I am a red wine-o. I was so excited that the mask performed as well as the other one.

It did a great job of hydrating my skin and evening out my skin texture for a couple days. The goodness really seemed to sink into my pores, which I love. 😊🍷 My pore size wasn’t reduced dramatically, but I’m sure this is basically impossible after one try. It’s performance was pretty close to what the description stated.

I will keep using these and tell you what I think. Out of all of my skin problems, whiteheads and painful red breakouts around my mouth are the most irritating right now. They are mostly hormonal but I hope a better skincare routine might put the zits to rest once and for all.

In general, sheet masks are relaxing and fun and I haven’t met one I haven’t liked. Though I have sensitive and problem skin these did not break me Out. They actually improved my skin tone and the size of my pimples. I’m satisfied and will continue to use and review them!

Thanks for reading and have a beautiful Fourth of July weekend!

5 Outfit Ideas for a Summer Wedding to Not Upstage a Bride and Still Look Hot in the Process

Hi lovely readers! Wedding season is well underway, and while it may have some of you shook with excitement as shown below, like me:

It may have some of you wanting to crawl into the nearest hole and die due to not having an outfit, being a bridesmaid, not having a date, not being in a relationship, being in close proximity to a bff turned a bridezilla…etc. As someone who has been in four quinceaneras and one wedding (not that many of my friends are married, but if anyone needs a bridesmaid hmu) I am here to make wedding season a little easier! The key? Looking hot without upstaging the bride on her day. 

Think elegant and sexy; no bodycons or crop tops, unless they’re paired with culottes. See below.

Truth be told, I am a sucker for weddings and a mild wedding crasher. I will cry at them all and will jump at the chance to attend them, whether my friendship with the bride and groom (or groom & groom, bride & bride) is questionable or not. I just love being around love. 💕

Here are my 5 outfit ideas:

1. Midi dresss with tasteful slits

From Tobi.com

This gorgeous one is from the brand Tobi. You will look hot without trying too hard. This cut is is ideal because it exposes just the right amount of skin.

A choker, block heels, a clutch, and a kimono for when night falls are the perfect accessories.

From Target.

From Asos.com.

From Nasty Gal

By the way, right now everything is 50% off Nasty Gal’s website with code Get50. 😩

2.Drop Waist Dress with Pop of Color

By Tommy Hilfiger. On Macys.com

The same hemline makes it possible to show some leg in an appropriate way. This color is so summery and gorgeous too.

Pair the dress a clear, nude, gold, or floral encrusted clutch, strappy heels to elongate your legs and a coral lip for an additional complementary pop of color

3. Off the Shoulder or One Shoulder Jumpsuit 

From Forever 21.

A lot of people forget shoulder cleavage can be sexy. It’s not all about legs or actual cleavage.

From H&M

Lace up sandals or mules are a perfect shoe choice.

From DSW.

By Jeffrey Campbell. Sold at Urban Outfitters.

4. High Waisted Culottes & Crop Top

Found on Pinterest.com.

Crop tops can be classy when paired with culottes and dressy accessories. I think this is my favorite outfit out of this list. 💕

These pairs are good culotte options:

From Asos.

Set from Forever 21.

5. Tuxedo Dress

From Tobi.com

Though this dress is certainly sexy, the long sleeves and tuxedo vibe make it dressy enough for a wedding. Gold accessories and a gold clutch would match the luxe vibe.

From Nordstrom.

From weddinghigh.com

Those are my suggestions & what I’d wear to summer weddings if I had been invited to to any. (Hint) Get married people! I need to wear these outfits!

If you are a bridesmaid and do not like your dress my suggestion is to customize your accessories to match your personality as much as possible so you’ll at least feel somewhat comfortable with the outfit. If you don’t have a date, wear a cute outfit & find one at the wedding!

Love you all!

Wet n Wild Au Naturel Palette Review

Hello beauties! I hope your summer is fabulous so far and all that you’d hoped for. I’ve been spending a little too much time perusing the makeup aisles at the drugstore and therefore spending a little too much on makeup. Thank you makeup vloggers who get me to buy everything you tell me to! (I still love you) 😉 💄

When I saw the Wet n Wild Au Naturel palette at my local Drugstore I thought, “At that price how could I go wrong?” Plus I had Extra Bucks at CVS so I mean…😩😩😩

I’m certainly glad with my purchase although I am partial to warm tones and this palette contains several colors with cool and neutral undertones. Regardless, for the price, quality, pigmentation & blendability, it is definitely worth purchasing.

I did a mauvey smoky eye with it easily in under 15 mins. 

Picture found on Pinterest.

As a base I used color #1 as shown above. In the crease I used #7. To deepen the crease I used #8. To highlight the brow bone I used the lightest shimmer shade in Wet n Wild’s Comfort Zone palette. (shown below) On the entire lid I used #2 & #6 from this palette.

Photo found on Kmart.com

For foundation I used Wet n Wild’s Photo Focus foundation. For highlight & blush I Used Elf’s Santa Lucia palette. The lipstick I’m wearing is Nyx’s Lip Lingerie in Bustier. (Shown below) If you have any questions, leave me a comment!

Overall I love pink & mauvey tones, so I was not dissappointed. My only criticism is I wish there were a few more matte shades / crease shades. I give it a 9 out of 10. 

😊💄✨

Hope you enjoyed this review!

What are your thoughts? Have you bought this palette? Would you? 

Love,

Maggie in the Moon

Current Color Mood: Yellow

Sunny happy yellow is cropping up everywhere & I’m loving it for summer. Who says you can only wear yellow during the day? Wear it to go out, for a wedding, etc.

I’m also loving slit dresses. I love that it’s okay to be a little cheekier during the summer too.
