Mask of the Week: My Beauty Diary Aroma Series Citrus Firming Aroma Mask

Sigh. Confession: when I last stayed with my boyfriend, I somehow forgot EVERYTHING and ended up with only micellar water to remove my makeup and a face lotion.

Next morning: hello, chin pimple. Haven't seen one of you in a while!

I don't need clarifying masks regularly (because I am usually super careful with my skin), but I was happy to have this My Beauty Diary Aroma Series Citrus Firming Aroma Mask on hand from a variety pack I purchased a few months back.


No English on the back... 20 mins on a clean face it is!


Time for my face! Not happy, huh...let me tell you why.


This has got to be the most ill-fitting mask EVER. Do I have a weird head? Would you guys tell me if I had an oddly shaped dome?! The chin of the mask is split in two, which is odd, but in this case, I was able to apply the flaps (something I've never said before) to the desired area, my chinny chin chin. It was saggy across my head, saggy under my eyes, and weird on the chin.

However! I finished up with this mask and looked in the mirror. My chin blemish was immediately, noticeably, less red, less bumpy, and less irritating. Score! I then applied my Purito Vitamin C serum, moisturizer, and went to bed. I woke up with the pimple GONE, gone, gone. No trace of it! Never happened! Woot!

I don't have another of these masks to try, and I won't go out of my way to purchase it again due to fit and lack of use. I don't want to tell you not to buy it, since it worked really well and really quickly, but if you have a weird head, like I do (allegedly), then it was no fun to use and not really the greatest masking experience.

Have you tried this brand? This version of mask? What do you think?

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!
