Unboxing Beauteque’s Beauty Trends 2015 with FeedURPassion Collection!

Last February, I entered Beauteque’s Beauty Blogger Trends contest and wrote up what K-Beauty trends I would like to see take off this year.   I came in third and the lovely Bernie (feedurpassion) won 1st place, which was to curate a Beauty Trends 2015 collection bag.    Because I came in third, I also received her collection from Beauteque.     This collection is currently on sale at Beauteque.com

Informational Card

Bernie starts out with three very interesting ingredients in a series of My Beauty Diary Masks, which are extremely popular Taiwan facial sheet masks.   Facial sheet masks are becoming very popular in the USA ~ even Walmart carries this particular brand! 

My Beauty Diary Imperial Bird’s Nest III Sheet Mask  I have received this mask before and it is a deeply hydrating and moisturizing mask, which doesn’t leave my fact sticky.  There are two versions of birds nest masks from My Beauty Diary ~ a regular one and an Imperial one.  I am not sure what the difference is between the two types, but Imperial sounds more regal for an Oriental Beauty pouch! Value $1.99

Description: The My Beauty Diary Mask is especially recommended for extremely dry skin to invigorate and enhance resilience. Optimally Nourishing: Amino acids, collagen and polysaccharides, extracted from supreme imperial bird’s nest, can penetrate deeply into extremely dry skin to nourish it. This is accompanied by natural plant extracts from oats, brown algae and maple sugar that hydrate, retain moisture and soothe. The patented long-lasting moisturizing ingredient Cosphingo in this hydrating face mask helps to moisturize and refine skin texture, rendering it perfect to touch and optimally nourished. Invigorating and Moisturize: Centella asiatica, baobab tree pulp extract, hydrolyzed soy and rice protein essence soothe dryness, prevent skin from cracking and provide highly-effective moisturization for enhanced skin elasticity.  With the soothing and hydrating effects from mava sylvestris and multiple types of algae, your skin is invigorated and alluring with this My Beauty Diary Face mask.

Mizon All in One Snail Cream  I really love my Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream  which has 74% of snail extracts and I am thinking that this is a bit more heavy duty as it has 92% of the lovely snail-y slime.  I have been wanting a more concentrated snail cream, but for the fall months.  I am not going to open this up yet, as once opened, I have to use it up in a certain time period.  I plan to use this once the cooler months start up, as I think that is when this gel-cream hybrid will really work best with my very oily skin.   I actually compared the two Mizon creams, as I am very interested in the differences.  There are some major differences, so I will find out how well this cream will work in comparison to the Recovery cream.   Full Size 75 mL Value $28.00

Description: Formulated with snail enzymes, Mizon’s Snail Repair Perfect Cream works to moisturize, smooth, and refresh skin from the inside out.  This cruelty free cream is perfect for all over the skin, especially in the sensitive eye area.

Etude House Precious Minerals Moist Any Cushion SPF50+/PA+++(choose from Natural Beige, Light Beige, or Honey Beige)  I chose Natural Beige (W13) as that seemed to be the closest to my light-medium warm toned skin.  And I guessed right!  It is pretty close to my skin tone and blends in nicely.  However, it is a “moist” BB cushion cream, so it is a bit dewy for me right now in the warm months.  This would be used in the winter months, when my skin is being sapped of moisture with the winter chilly winds and the hot indoors heating systems.   This is made with 26.7% baobab water, which helps hydrate your skin and 4x the amount of hyaluronic acid than is found in other BB cushions.   This has a creamy, moist texture, but it is not sticky, just dewy on the skin.  If you have dry skin or love the dewy look, this can be used year round.   This cushion doesn’t contain  preservatives, talc, oil, waxes or other chemicals that could cause clogged pores, acne and skin irritations.    The packaging is a pearlescent-type colored compact, nice and sturdy, with a flip top that houses a mirror and a makeup pad.  The cushion is kept moist with another flip top lid that protects it from air.  Full Size Value $20.00

Description: A cushion soaked in foundation, it can be bb or cc cream too, housed in a chunky compact with second lid/compartment for the puff and also to keep the foundation from drying. Smooth texture like a moisturizing cream to keep face hydrated all the time even in winter. 6-in-1 almighty cream foundation cushion: Moisturizing + Whitening + Anti-wrinkle + UV protecting (SPF 50+ / PA+++) + Tone correcting + Glossy effect. 

  1. Naked Skin
  2. BB Cushion (not blended)
  3. BB Cushion (blended)

I really enjoyed unboxing and trying out these products that Bernie picked out!  I think she did a great job curating Beauty Trends 2015 ~ from unusual ingredients like Birds Nest, Snail Slime and Sake, to products like facial sheet masks and BB Cushions.   Her bag is still available at Beauteque for $38.00 and this curated collection has a retail value of almost $52.00.  Beauteque has a May promo code ~ MAY2 ~ that is worth $2.00 off and you can use it on this bag! 

Did you get Beauty Trends 2015 with FeedUrPassion?  What was your favorite product?  I really liked the BB cushion, much to my surprise, as I normally hate BB products!  I am also excited to use the Sake Yeast Facial mask and the Snail cream.
