Mask of the Week: Josie Maran Whipped Mud Mask in Lavender Citrus

Warning: awesome purple mask face pic coming up!

Today I tried the Josie Maran Whipped Mud Mask Argan Hydrating and Detoxifying Treatment in Lavender Citrus. My Grandmother gifted this to me because it came in a set that she purchased (if you wonder where I get my love of lux, look no further) and she is not a mask fan. Score! Thanks, Gogo!


Just like my Apricot Josie mask that is a bright orange, this matches the container too and is a sweeeet lavender color. You know I love a funny colored face mask.


This has a super thick consistency. Emphasis on the super and extra emphasis on the thick. Mud is pretty much the consistency to think of - purple, lavender smelling mud.


Wow - does this smell strong! If you do not like lavender, and a lot of it, you will not like this mask. As it is super thick, it takes forever to dry down, so the scent remains super strong the whole time. Personally, I love lavender, but it makes me super sleepy - look at my eyes, LOL! I put this on and just closed my eyes.

One thing I dislike about this mask is that it feels very tight as it dries down. I believe that is the norm for mud masks, but still an FYI that you will need to finish your post masking with a heavy moisturizer. I would emphasis that this is more detox than hydration on me, and I normally have dry to normal skin.

I am enjoying the Josie Maran masks I have tried so far, but for me, as I just said, they are tightening and slightly drying. Heads up for those with dry skin and those sensitive to fragrance!



  1. Glad to see this, have been thinking about a set of these on that it is lavender colored :)

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:

Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.

Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.

Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?

I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!

The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!


PS: Fuck Trump!
