Masks of the Week: Ulta Beauty Strawberries&Champagne Hydrating Peel-Off Glitter Mask and Shea Butter Pucker Up Lip Mask

This week I have a few of one of the four masks that Ulta created for Holiday 2017. They sold out quickly (part time job there) and I was lucky to snag one of these Strawberries & Champagne Hydrating Peel-Off Glitter Masks before they disappeared.

I should have taken a picture of the liquid itself for you. It was semi sparkly, but on the skin, as you can see below, it really didn't look anything besides wet.

The strawberries and champagne scent was refreshing and bubbly! It smelled like the old s&c scent that Bath&Body Works offered years ago. The glitter aspect was a complete dud, if you ask me. The peel off process was especially difficult as the mask had zero color - it was hard to tell where you have removed the product and where it was left on your face. Extra rinsing was required after this mask, which I always feel removes some of the benefits, too.

My lips are chapped year round, so when they get especially awful, I reach for a lip mask. I forget where this Shea Butter Pucker Up mask came from but I want to say it came in an Ulta sample bag, like a gift with purchase deluxe sample set. Once in a while, if you follow the emails, those sample bags with purchase are so worth it.

Anyway, after I rinsed off the Ulta mask I applied the soft cloth lip mask. The mask is oversized and covers almost up to my nose. I appreciate that since I have a pesky little line starting on my lip (damn you, mid-30's) and the area can always use extra hydration.

I don't use lip masks often because they are inconvenient. You cannot speak, eat, or drink. This mask is thin, comfortable, but just kind of a pain to use. My lips are left soft, but not plumped. The lip lines remain and you need to follow it with a chapstick or something to seal in the moisture.

I do prefer an overnight lip mask, especially the ones from Laneige and Bite Beauty.  Overnight lip masks are easier because they are a much thicker consistency that is applied at night so you don't have to worry about it, but I will continue to use these until they are gone.

Have you tried a lip mask? What do you think?
