Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I think you’ll like the lipstories balms @eshoe. I found them to be nice moisturizing, balmy. The color is buildable and lasts up to 1-1/2 to 2 hours on me, but my lips stay moisturized and soft even after the color is gone. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

You are right, @itsfi . Inadvertently I bought a matte, satin and metallic, and all three are pleasant and easy on the lips. Great product for such a small $!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I like the looks of it @itsfi 🤔 thank you for the tag! I'll wait for reviews...or a promo. I don't take cheating on my glosses lightly. 😋

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hahaha @sonnydee! 😆 So many releases coming this week! A promo for these would be lovely.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi  Omg this looks amazing! Thanks for sharing. I’m totally on a no buy but Langeine has a gummy bear lip mask and glossy lip balm coming up that I may need to break my no buy for 😬 I also got ILIA Color Haze Multi-Use Pigment Sing  and it’s sooo good. I can only imagine how good this lip oil will be 😝

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@ather, there seems to be a lot of new products being released this Tuesday. 💸😂  There’ll be sales popping up too. 🛍  Picking and choosing what to get and what to pass on is definitely the way to go. Perhaps at some point there’ll be a set of mini’s for these balmy glossy oils. 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@itsfi ohhhhh that sour cherry mask sounds wonderful!!

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This is such a nice mask @lmaster! 🍒 The brand has a sour cherry whipped moisturizer that I want to try. 😍 It sounds like it would be amazing; and with it, I probably could do a skincare routine just based on cherries! ♥️

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

First thought not going to lie: is it edible? 😂🍒 @itsfi the moisturizer sounds good too. I think the only Spalife sheet mask i like is there bubble mask.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Hahaha @sonnydee! 😂  The yumminess of the Eminence mask is limited to its scent. Definitely not edible. Yeah, I’m not a fan of this SpaLife mask; I don’t think I’d categorize  it as a good filler mask. It didn’t cause any breakouts, redness or other skin irritation, which I’m very thankful for, but it’s just not for me. Oh well. On to the next mask. 😉 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

Tonight’s masking, “V” for Vargas and Venofye:

Spoiler
First, the Kosas Kosasport LipFuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm Pulse is minty and long-lasting for a balm. Plus I use it outside to protect my lips in that hot summer sun. Great balm and another likely repurchase.

The Joanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask is new to me and these are my first impressions.

Scent: yummy! Was not expecting that. On board. There is a deliciously subtle fruity-citrus scent to this. 

Texture: scrubbies are a bit harsh, albeit teensy-tiny. I had to apply this fairly thin clay-like mask carefully, so as to not rough up my skin too much. 

Appearance: looks like the untaggable Kiehl’s Cranberry & Turmeric mask.

There is a golden sheen to it, which is very pretty. Rinsing was easy, I used a muslin cloth. The granules are rather rough, so I was very careful when removing them. My skin, especially the forehead area, looked brightened after using.

 

The Venofye Royal Honey Sheet Mask was a mask I looked forward to trying because it was from trusted mask aficionado @Shosh85 and also because of its crazy $$$ price tag. I am always curious if the amount paid reflects value received.

So first thoughts. The scent-I was not expecting heavy honey based on Shosh85’s reviews, and true to her word_there was little to be noticed. Once it was on my face, I seemed to sense a bit of honey, but there wasn’t enough there for me to say.

This is a medium weight sheet mask. The unfolding was extraordinarily frustration-free. The fit- perfect. Really, the best cotton mask fit I’ve tried. I left it on for nearly 30 minutes before it became noticeably dry under my nose. There was a tiny bit of serum for reapplying, which I used. My skin was just the slightest bit tacky, and appeared brighter after using-I don’t think that was the goal, but it happened and I will take it 🤷🏻‍♀️😊 

 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe like @emaisgr8 I had no idea about the crazy price tag! Or maybe I did but forgot. Thanks for that reminder. I enjoyed the mask too but there's no way I'm buying it with that price tag. 😲

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

An absolute treat to try, @ShortErica - but not necessarily to buy😉

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe  I really liked the Venofye mask also.  I didn't realized the crazy price on it.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@emaisgr8 I never would have tried it, if not for @Shosh85‘s generosity! How fun, and it also makes me realize that most masks really should be in the $1-5 range. $50 is absurd😂

WOW just looked Venofye masks up. 😳😯🤑 1 mask better fi...

WOW just looked Venofye masks up. 😳😯🤑 1 mask better fix everything wrong with my face immediately & for a month for it to be worth it. @eshoe

Re: WOW just looked Venofye masks up. 😳😯🤑 1 mask better fi...

I agree 1000%, @sonnydee 😂

17118C32-4A3D-4402-8E8D-FF90FAF90EDE.gif

 it’s absurd.

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

How much is a hefty price tag @eshoe just curious why it would be so expensive? 

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

I think @Shosh85 found them to be $50 for a single sheet, @lmaster 😳 I...I just don’t know. That’s about $45 more than I want to pay for a mask😂

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

@eshoe wow!!! That's is crazy expensive

Re: 2020 Mask of the Week Challenge - PART II

This sounds like a nice masking combo, @eshoe. I'm intrigued by the Joanna Vargas even if the granules did seem a little harsh.
