Mask of the Week: Perfectly Posh Go West

I love the Mask of the Week post!

I love trying new products and I am (still) currently obsessed with masks, so I truly look forward to this post. Hope you do, too. I am still toying with the idea of a second Mask of the Week post as I try to mask multiple times per week. What do you think of a Wednesday and Sunday mask post? Let me know in the comments!

This week I have a mask sample of Go West to review sent by my pal, Jayme, who is reppin' the Perfectly Posh skincare line.

According to the website, Go West! is a detoxifying, exfoliating face mask. It contains "red clay and gritty volcanic ash help detox pores and exfoliate dry skin, while antioxidant-rich rosehip oil and calming licorice root extract nourish."

Typical mask directions: "Apply a thin layer on your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 5–10 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Follow with moisturizer to keep your freshly exfoliated face looking soft and lovely."

After I read this info, and saw the sample, I had a few thoughts.

  • Was this going to be enough to cover my face?
  • Would the exfoliating be TOO MUCH on my fairly sensitive skin??

Let's see!

Next, I realized how amaaazing this smells. According to the website, the scent is a "blend of fresh earth, essential oils, and botanical extracts." Yeah, that doesn't explain anything. It smells clean, fresh, desert-y. That also doesn't really help, does it?

This sample was more than enough to cover my face, which leads me to believe I have been using way too much of my other skincare products. Thoughts for later.

You can feel and see the gritty, exfoliating particles in the product. There aren't many pieces though, which made me feel instantly better and worry less about over-exfoliation. (It's a real issue, especially when you have a heavy hand like I do!)

I waited ten or so minutes and then rinsed. The mask dried a bit but not fully in the ten mins. It did not feel tight or harsh at all.

And...LOOKATMYFACE!

Conclusion: love at first application! My skin felt buttery soft. I mean s-a-w-f-t (are any of my readers WWE fans? haha)!! There is a slightly cooling sensation after you wash it off, but in a cooling way, not a tingling or painful or tightening way.

The photo above is my bare skin right after I washed off the mask. Love, love, love. I finished up adding a few drops of my beloved Purito Vitamin C serum, then moisturizer (as you should after any mask!).

Needless to say, I recommend the heck out of this product. It smells amazing and is so very gentle. I would NOT use it daily, but perhaps once per week to really refresh the skin.

Thank you, Jayme for letting me try this product!

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!
