Born Pretty Store Review - Fimo Canes and Facial Mask Mixing Kit


Good afternoon, dear readers! :D

Today I have two products to review, both of which were sent to me from the Born Pretty Store.

First up is the 4 in 1 DIY Facial Mask Mixing Kit:



This wonderful kit contains a bowl, three measuring spoons, a spatula, and an application brush.  This kit is for mixing and applying your own facial masks!  Super fun awesomeness!!! :D  I love DIY beauty products, and have been known to mix my own shower creams, lip scrubs and pore cleansers. I actually really wanted one of these kits and I am so fortunate to recieve one for review! :D  Brushes are great for applying masks, because you don't have to get your hands dirty and they can make application easier around the curves of your face (like your nose).

The brush:



The spatula:





The measuring spoons are for 2.5 ml, 5 ml, and 15 ml.

I am not sure why but the bowl is a squishy rubber, which I think is quite fun :D.  Maybe it is squishy for storage?



This really is the perfect kit for facial masks. :D  If you like doing your own facials at home, I highly recommend this. :)

Next up:

Fimo canes!!! :D

Yesssss!!!  I've wanted these for a long time and I am so happy to be able to review them! :D  A while back my sister bought me some fimo fruit slices, and I have been hoarding them because I didn't want to run out of them and their incredible cuteness.  As a result, I have made only one manicure with them, and have saved the rest for special occasions.

Here are the ones I got from the Born Pretty Store:




and here are some close-ups:



Aren't they adorable??!! XD  So cute!!

The great thing about getting fimo sticks is that you can cut them to whatever thickness you want (although I am still getting the hang of that!).

I cut mine with a surgical blade.

I couldn't wait to start using them, so I cut up a bunch of different slices and made this mani:






Eeeeeee I love it!!! XD

I know that these types of manicures are not for everyone, but they bring a smile to my face. :D  I was feeling pretty down and the overall cuteness of these fimo canes help to cheer me up. :)

I also have a coupon code for 10% off any Born Pretty Store purchase, which is: CBJ61 :D

What are your thoughts on the facial mask kit and the fimo canes?

Have an amazing day!! :D
