The cute little white box you see above may not look like much but it's soon to be a dream come true for makeup lovers! The MINK is a 3D printer made specifically to "print" makeup. That alone sounds pretty amazing, but not only can you print makeup, you can print any color you see. You can snap a picture with your phone if you see a color you like, you can copy any color you see anywhere online, you can watch a makeup tutorial video online, pause it, copy the color you see, and print it out. Color possibility are endless.
They are hoping to release it later this year and if you would like updates you can sign up for release emails HERE. Also check out the video above for full details on the process.
I'm excited to see how this plays out when it becomes a reality. I hope this product and the general idea of home printing makeup catches on.

Thanks to iFabbo I got to try out another goodie from the Perlier Honey Miel line. They sent me some Royal Elixir Youth Serum. It's an anti-aging serum that incorporates royal jelly from African bees which has been proven to stimulate collagen production and is loaded with nutrients and anti-oxidative properties.
They also replaced the water in this serum with pure rose distillate to help with miniaturization and toning. It's like getting the results of two high end serums all in one.
This is one of those products I have no trouble putting on daily. It smells amazing and like every other Perlier product I've tried, it works well and makes my skin feel great. Grab your own HERE!

Good example of aqua nails I found on Youtube
I got a little excited recently when a video of a friend showing off her new "aqua nails" came across my Facebook feed. I haven't seen anything really new or different in the nail world in awhile so I was a little surprised by it. "aqua nails" are nail tips that look like a little snow globe on your finger. They are hollow tips that you fill with glitter or any other teeny thing you would like, you add water with a syringe, and then you seal it with glue. They are a little thick so most people use them as accent nails and add embellishments to the point where the tip connects to the natural nail to hide the line that is pretty visible otherwise.

Majestical Jewelry was kind enough to send me these lovely Tortoise Shell style earrings to check out. They came mailed in a white padded bubble mailer with a lovely blue gift box inside. They also came with a nice little satin bag that is perfect for storage or gift giving. I'm a sucker for a nice presentation so I love little personal touches like that. The earrings are well made and look great. I'm quite happy with them although my daughter is trying really hard to talk me out them because she likes them so much too. If you want to get your hands on your own pair you can find this style HERE. They retail for $9 which seems like a steal to me the way they come so nicely presented.
The website also has a TON of other gorgeous pieces to choose from ranging from lower end costume to sterling and gemstone pieces. I'm sure any jewelry lover could find several pieces to fall in love with there. Check them out HERE!I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
