Hello there!I spent this Memorial Day weekend wandering the halls of the Wilhelm Mausoleum located in Portland, OR.The building is only open to the public once a year on Memorial Day. I missed my chance last year since I vacationing in Hawaii, I’m very glad I didn’t […]
Hi there! I’ve vowed to stop wasting money on expensive razors exclusively marketed toward women that don’t last and single-use disposables that feel terrible and wreak havoc on my poor skin. Summer is rolling around, and with summer comes the inevitable trips to the beach […]
I splurged and snagged a few beauty goodies at the store the other day; the first one I tried out of the batch is a Masqueology Hylaronic Modeling Peel Off Mask.
The package is actually built to expand into a “cup” once you rip it open, and then hiding inside the pouch is a measuring cup for water plus a mixing spatula. It seemed like waaaay too much product for one round of face mask pampering so I did not follow the suggested route; I dumped half of the powder into a mixing bowl and cut the recipe in half.
It seems like mixing this up inside such a skinny pouch would be a pain in the neck. Even if you are planning on using the whole thing in one pop, I still think you’d be better off using a separate bowl.
The mixture started to set almost immediately after incorporating the water, I had to move pretty quickly to get it satisfactorily smeared on my face before it became rubbery. I ended up looking like a smurf dipped in melted chocolate, but it was worth it in my book!
This is by no means moisturizing like the packaging claims, but it seemed to tighten my pores nicely without leaving my skin feeling like a desert. I hate the tight dusty feeling most mud masks leave behind. I snagged this at Walmart for $2.50, and considering I’ll get two masks out of one package that’s a great deal!
Do you have a go-to face mask? Mud, peel off, or moisturizing? I’d love to hear down in the comments!
Would you believe me if I said it took longer to type out each eyeshadow’s name than it took to actually swatch each one? It’s true! These are all one swipe of pigment with just my fingertip, each one is super pigmented, creamy, and blends like a dream.
You can see an eye-look I put together with the palette here on my Insta. The box the palette came in is also gorgeous as if the packaging wasn’t enough.
What’s your favorite shade from the palette? Do you like the shades or do you think Tarte should have gone with more neon “mermaid” colors?
Back in March, I found a curious little candle on a thrifting trip in Portland. It’s from a now-defunct company, The Treasure Candle Inc. I wasn’t able to glean much from my internet sleuthing, the company was based in Hollywood and sold these candles around the late 80’s-90’s, and that’s all I could find! I even tried searching the Sun God myth that came tucked under the candle, but no dice.
It took quite a few hours to burn down low enough to fish out the hidden treasures, and I’d like to show you what was inside!
I’ll definitely be on the lookout for another treasure candle, I had a lot of fun with it!
Hello Lovelies! If you’ve ever visited my Insta page, you would know I’m a tad infatuated with anything hedgehog related. If I had unlimited funds, and no guilt with wasting money on frivolous purchases, this would be my hedgie merch shopping list: . ..Are there any […]
