2019 Mask of the Week Main Thread & Misc. Info:

Spoiler
To Post:
Each week features a different theme, as well as a letter of the alphabet for coming up with new masking ideas. 

Please include the brand and name of the mask you are trying out, as well as a photo if possible. Any other details are greatly appreciated, including scent, if it's an exfoliating mask (include acid info if known), your overall experience, and whether or not you would repurchase. Don't forget to include a grade (thanks to @ShortErica for the idea) to help others along the way.

Most importantly, have fun and merry masking!

Mask Hacks - Here are a few to get started thanks to our lovely BIC-ers, a big thank you for these fabulous ideas!

Trim off long chin and add to forehead for sheet masks

itsfi

Squeeze tube lip balms (like Bite) into pans and place in magnetic palette

sonnydee

Layer lip sleeping mask (such as Laneige) over regular balm

cianni

Derma plane prior to a peel-off mask to ease the pain of removal

heartsmyface

Warm water helps remove clay masks quicker than cold

cianni

Lay sheet masks flat prior to use so the serum is more evenly distributed 

eshoe 

Remove clay/difficult masks in the shower to keep towel clean and removal easy

itsfi/BIC

Use an HA serum prior to trying a mask with alcohol high on the ingredients list

keana1

Use a Makeup Eraser to remove wash-off masks

lmaster

With a detox mask, apply a thicker layer where pores are

Ather

Use a resurfacing exfoliating spray (such as Kate Somerville’s Liquid ExfoliKate) before a detox mask to better clear out your pores

Miamia27

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie, the raspberry lip oil leaves a slight tint on my lips. The honey one may be the next one I get from the brand because well, it’s honey. 🍯😆

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi I completely understand! 🍯💜

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@missjeanie I love the ones from Kopari and Laneige that are tinted. 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

ohhh... I haven't looked at either of those ones @SportyGirly125 !

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi  Haha! Yup, potatoes are definitely an important part of making mashed potatoes 😂🤣🥔


The packaging on these are so great! Too bad about the parabens and added fragrance, but it sounds like it was pretty decent despite that 😉👍

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Catastrophe avoided that’s for sure @Shosh85. 😝 I could have made mashed cauliflower but I don’t think that Thanksgiving crowd would be feeling it. Lol. 

Added fragrance and parable can keep a mask from the jump from a good to great mask. 😔 I’d happily use this one again but I wouldn’t necessarily run out to add it to my stash. 

this is too cute! @itsfi and you are too funny!! mmmmmm m...

this is too cute! @itsfi and you are too funny!! mmmmmm mashed potatoes 😋

Re: this is too cute! @itsfi and you are too funny!! mmmmmm m...

@lmaster, thank goodness the store was open on Thanksgiving Day. 😃 Have to have our mashed potatoes! 🥔 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

That mask sounds sounds great @itsfi! I usually forget at least one important ingredient for my meals so i make lots of trips for 1 item🤦‍♀️

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

It was frustrating and funny at the same time @faeriegirl! 🤦🏻‍♀️😂 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

It's always the simple things we forget @itsfi 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

So true @emaisgr8! Smiley Happy I thought I'd be in and out of the grocery store. Boy was I wrong. Whoa. It was comical. There I was standing in a loooong line at the express registers with my lone bag of potatoes. The cashier cracked me up when he looked at my bag and then me and deadpanned, "It happens." Smiley Happy  Well, at least we remembered the turkey. Hahaha! Smiley Happy 

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@itsfi  Oooh, fun. I haven't seen this one. Ursula is one of my favorite disney villians. What a good idea for "V" week. Haha - you crack me up with the potatoes. I have a bunch of extra boiled potatoes that I'm trying to figure out what to do with at the moment.

Re: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@PrettyPaint, the masks in this Villians collection are pretty good. I saw that another brand (Mad Beauty - first I heard of them) also put out masks with Disney Villians and Princess and those masks are illustrated with the Disney villians / princesses. Oh my goodness, I could not believe I forgot the potatoes! hahaha! Smiley Happy I'm not likely to forget again as there were so. many. people. at the grocery store.  

RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

Always great when you have to get up after 4 hours of sleep. This morning I was still feeling the fruit vibe and went with A’pieu’s Sweet Peach. Good quick mask that fits my face perfectly. No surgery required. Light scent. I also featured my morning lip plumper. Never thought of it as a mask, even though I use it like one every morning and night. This time I used Colourpop’s So Juicy in plain. It’s an icky goopy formula and the container is not the best for keeping the goopy contained... but it’s only $5 for a tube and lasts a long time. I wipe it off after I take my sheet mask off. Helps with lipstick application, that’s the only reason I have plumper in my routine.

Re: RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Weetart  I tried this one a while back, before I started saving my notes, so all I remember about it is that I liked it 😉 Happy to hear you enjoyed it! 😃🍑

what brand is that plumper? @Weetart

what brand is that plumper? @Weetart

RE: what brand is that plumper? @Weetart

Colourpop! @lmaster

Re: RE: what brand is that plumper? @Weetart

Thanks! @Weetart 

Re: RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

@Weetart  Wow, a perfect fit? That sounds magical! Smiley Happy

RE: Re: RE: 2019 Q4 Mask of the Week Challenge!

For sure @PrettyPaint
