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!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe  at this point in the game I don't even pretend anymore lol... the level of 'dressed' I get on any given day has drastically changed from a year ago! Jeans feel so dressed up these days! My only solace is that I think it's most of us, not just me. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh yes I have worn my jeans maybe three times in the past nine months, @missjeanie. I think I even mentioned to my husband that I felt like I was dressing up the last time I wore them! I am thinking of doing a closet clear out before the year ends, might need to donate a few pairs...

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

These are such cute eye masks!! @missjeanie 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

lol @lmaster  I think the cute factor is one of of TCS's strongest characteristics!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Your photography skills are fantastic @missjeanie, as are your masks! ๐Ÿ˜ These masquerade eye masks are really great! I like all the โ€œflavorsโ€ and wish TCS would introduce new ones (but not if it meant theyโ€™d discontinue the current variations in the line). The colors, design and flourishes on your mask is so pretty - love the green and gold! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@itsfi I think I picked up a bunch from Meijer when I was over in ... February maybe?  I'm not mad at having a few more! These may be my current fav TCS masks.  It was a great idea to copy, thanks for the inspiration!

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie, Iโ€™m all for not reinventing the wheel! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ Also, I get inspired by many maskers here. โ™ฅ๏ธ Ummm, hello, two-a-days??!! Also your cocktails ๐Ÿธ  and masking and @WinglessOneโ€™s talk of wine ๐Ÿท, well, let me just say, Iโ€™ve made note of both of those! Oh, and the masks too. Iโ€™ve made notes of the masks reviewed as well. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Funny that @itsfi .... it's a cocktail and mask night here tonight.  Rye and Gingers this evening... dang... should have gone with a themed beverage! Tomorrow. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ooooh, rye and gingers @missjeanie?! Rye whiskey is something I very much enjoy. Putting rye and gingers on my list. Do you do just rye whiskey and ginger ale or do you add any extras?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

For the most part it's just plain ol' Rye and Ginger (Canada Dry Diet for me) @itsfi .  Nine times out of ten it's just regular Crown Royal, but I've been switching it up lately with their flavoured Rye.  They have a peach, apple, and a few others, I'm using the Northern Harvest tonight simply because it's open.  Apparently it won a bunch of awards.  I used to drink Rye and Diet Coke all the time, but this last year Ginger ale has been the winner.  I talk like I'm a big connoisseur lol. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Canada Dry Diet is my preferred ginger ale as well @missjeanie! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ You ARE a big connoisseur! โ™ฅ๏ธ

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Challenge Theme: Mask that would make a good band name

Band Name: The Beets (Get it? Beats ... Beets) ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜‚

Beets.jpg

 

Spoiler
Farm Skin Brightening Superfood Salad for the Skin (Beet) is a soft, thin Tencel sheet mask saturated but not quite dripping in a sweet-leaning, subtly fruity scented essence having a traditional sheet mask consistency - slightly viscous liquid, aimed at brightening the complexion. As with most, if not all, Tencel sheet masks I've used, adherence is wonderful. As for fit, it was good, better than most sheet masks for my face size and shape but can be easily tailored to make it suitable for me - I just needed to take off some length along the chin and jawline and make some small incisions to the corners of the eyes. There's some essence remaining after an half hour of wear, but it absorbs quickly as I pat, pat, pat the extra into my skin to help with absorption. Once fully absorbed and the slightly-tacky-to-the-touch feeling dissipated, my skin felt soft, hydrated and a little brighter. The brightening is not an in-your-face blinding light but more of a clear, fresh-faced glow.

Thanks again for the fabulous theme @PrettyPaint! Got some veggies and masking in all at the same time! ๐Ÿ˜  I have The Go-Go's We Got The Beat in my head now. ๐Ÿ˜†

 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Ok @itsfi did you ever watch the nickelodeon cartoon called Doug?? They literally had a band called the beets ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@lmaster, how did I miss that Doug had a band named "The Beets"? I've seen a handful of episodes. They were ahead of their time. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Oh how I miss the good ol cartoons!! @itsfi 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Yesssss to this @lmaster! โ™ฅ๏ธ They donโ€™t make โ€˜em like they used to, do they? I mean, there are some good animation in film and cartoons these days, but I miss the stuff we grew up watching! 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Iโ€™m just here for the cocokind, @itsfi! I currently have more lip balms than I will ever use, but that doesnโ€™t mean I canโ€™t still be curious ๐Ÿง 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Lol @eshoe ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@eshoe @itsfi  okay... so long story short... I saw this post right before I went to the drug store for the first time since March.  I had points to spend at Shoppers Drug Mart and they were doing a spend your points event and the drug store was virtually empty.  I went down each aisle and saw this... right after I saw your post Fi.  So I now have this lip balm in 'quarantine' in my garage for another day.  I should have asked if it was great or not... but I figured hey... its a pandemic... YOLO on the lip balms?

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

@missjeanie @eshoe, I like the Cocokind balm. It has the slightest of tints to it; I actually can't tell that my lips are tinted with it unless I press a tissue to my lips. The initial swipes of the balm has a hard feel to it but once you get a couple of passes through, the entire balm softens and it applies nicely and smoothly. It moisturizes my lips without making them feel greasy, but it's not super moisturizing. I find that the Sephora Collection tinted lip balms to impart more color and more moisture but this one seems to wear longer on my lips than the SC one. 

Re: Mask of the Week Challenge

Dang... I forgot I had my bags in quarantine all day today @itsfi @eshoe .  Tomorrow shall be un bagging and trying this one out.  I kinda dug the packaging on the line of products they had there, if it had been a different day I'd have perused online for some reviews to see if I should be buying more from them, but this was sheerly a 'Fi had this one in her photo today so now I need to try it' lol
