A Beginner’s Guide: Picking the Perfect Face Mask

Wet and Wild On Edge Creme Eyeliner Review

 

Hi there!

 

It took me years to finally settle on a go-to eyeliner; my ultimate holy grail was Hard Candy Walk The Line in Asphalt.  My trusty tube had weathered through dozens of my signature cat eye look, but unfortunately, my tube gave up the ghost last week. I was all set to buy another one, but after seeing an empty slot in the Hard Candy display I found out they have discontinued it!

My holy grail product was discontinued, what now?

I’m headed up to Seattle next week and had gone to the store specifically for a new tube before I leave, so I didn’t have time to go home and research a new eyeliner. I grabbed the best looking (and cheapest) product nearby and landed on Wet and Wild’s On Edge Creme Eyeliner in the shade Carbon My Reach.

Wet n Wild On Edge Creme Eyeliner: What does it come with?

This container is deceptively small, you actually get quite a bit of product! On the other hand, I don’t care for the brush that came with it one bit. I immediately chucked it in a drawer and reached for my own angled liner brush.
The bristles don’t even come to a point, it’s a loosely packed paddle tipped brush which would never work for precise lines much less a wing…

 

On Edge Creme Eyeliner: How did it perform?

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I love this eyeliner! It’s not as deep of a black as my retired Walk The Line, but it builds opacity quickly and doesn’t smear a bit. I swatched this on the back of my hand while I was playing with the brush that came with it, and that tiny line did not budge after washing my hands 4-5 times that day.

This has got to be one of the hardiest waterproof eyeliners I’ve come across, I ended up using coconut oil and my makeup eraser to take off the eye-look shown below. You have to go over the area at least twice to get a satisfactory shade of black, so it’s a little difficult to achieve a sharp wing, but it’s doable with some patience.

8 Fictional Characters That Give Me Serious Nail Envy

8 Fictional Characters That Give Me Serious Nail Envy

Hey there ~

 

While watching tv and movies my eyes are always immediately drawn to nail art. I saw Alice Through The Looking Glass back when it was in theaters and I loved the white queen’s black chevron tips. Nail art is becoming increasingly popular in pop culture, and I love it! 

 

Here are a few awesome designs or just plain impressive nails from my favorite films and tv shows:

1. Yubaba from Spirited Away. To be honest, I’m in love with this entire character design, the cherry stilettos are just the cherry on top.

2.  Rin from Free! You can see a real-life version of this nail art here.

3. Drusilla from the classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer sports some killer red french tips. I re-created these a couple years back!

4. Gossamer from Looney Tunes. Everyone needs Bugs as a nail tech right?

5. Effie Trinket from Hunger Games. I also took a whack at this nail design last year.

6. Pretty Little Liars. I think everyone wishes painting their nails was this quick and easy!
 
                                   
                                   
7. Sugalite from Steven Universe. These have been waiting on my nail art to-do list far too long…

8. Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer always wore his coat of iconic black nail polish.

I Dew Care Sugar Kitten Holographic Peel-Off Mask Review

I Dew Care Sugar Kitten Holographic Peel-Off Mask Review

Hi there!

I had a stroll through Ulta last weekend while the BF was looking over PS4 accessories in the strip mall downtown; I somehow managed to make my way home with only two goodies! 


I’ll let in you on the second item in a few days, I’m too excited about this face mask!


This is the Sugar Kitten Holographic Peel-Off Mask from I Dew Care. It’s an iridescent rosy lavender hydrating peel off mask. It has a lovely delicate rose scent and shifts from light pink to lavender.


From the brand:

A holographic peel-off mask infused with ruby powder, pearl powder, rose water, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate and revitalize dry skin for that dewy-looking, post-facial glow.

 

 

It was impossible to do this mask justice in photos, iridescent finishes are so difficult to capture! You would think all my nail art photography would have given me enough practice….

 

My skin felt softer and hydrated after peeling this off. It has quickly risen to the top of my mask routine. I think the mask looked cooler after peeling it off though, to be honest! This retails for $23.00, which is a bit pricier than what I usually spring for, but I think it’s well worth the money!
It does look a bit like I just finished scalping an alien though, haha.

What’s your favorite kind of face mask? I’d love to know!
