So let’s talk a little about skincare. I know make up is amazing and it covers one’s imperfections like redness, blemishes, uneven pigmentation, pores and so on.. BUT taking care of your skin is very important. You want to cleanse, moisturize, & even start using anti aging products. It’s never TOO EARLY to start using these type of skincare methods. Your skin needs the proper TLC and it’s nice to pamper it once in a while.  Enough of my rambling, let’s get down to the point. When I was working at Sephora, we were given these little sample size things of this mask. To be honest with you, I never really cared for facial masks. I only washed my face with cleanser and applied moisturizer and that was it… I never exfoliated, until i got the Clarisonic, but that’s a whole different topic lol. So i thought I’d give this a try. Let me tell you, this stuff is AMAZEBALLS. I did this mask before my nightly bath. I took off all my makeup, I washed my face gently to remove excess residue from makeup and makeup wipe, and then I applied this mask with clean fingers!!! MAKE SURE TO WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE. You don’t want to add dirt and bacteria to your face. I left the mask on until it dried. It says to leave it on for 10 minutes, but I’m a rebel and left it on longer LOL. It feels cold and tingly when applied. I removed the mask in the shower with warm water, moving my fingers in circular motion. This will help exfoliate a little more. My face felt amazing after. It was smooth, it felt fresh, and definitely looked brighter.

So this mud mask is supposed to leave skin noticeably radiant and glowing. It works with the body’s natural moisturizing collagen to provide gentle resurfacing exfoliation and helps to leave skin smoother, brighter, and softer. This mask also makes the texture of your skin tighter and helps tighten up the pores. It gives a more youthful appearance and absorbs impurities without removing natural oils. You should also know that this mask is also formulated WITHOUT the following ingredients: Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates. 

NOW – the one thing that I DON’T like is the price .. For 0.5 oz, it is $19.00 & for 1.7 oz it is $69.00. But, if it something that works for you and is benefiting your skin, it’s worth it. REMEMBER – this is something that can NOT be done everyday. Depending on your skin type and sensitivity, you may want to do this 1-3 times in a 7 day period.

Hope you enjoyed this little review and of course my MASK FACE 😀

Eyes

  1. I filled in my eye brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in “Ebony” – with concealer, I cleaned out the edges.
  2. I applied Urban Decay Primer Potion in “original” – this will keep your eyeshadow from creasing – then as a base I applied NYX Jumbo pencil in “Milk”.
  3. In the inner third of my eye, I applied “Thrash” and “Revolt”. I then used “Savage” and “Slowburn” on the rest of my lid. Make sure to blend in between so the colors blend into each other. You don’t want to see any harsh lines.
  4. In the crease I applied “Urban” to give it a smokey effect. To blend that color I used “Jilted”. This gives it a nice gradient effect. From a dark purple to a light purple.
  5. As my highlight under my brow bone, I used Stila Eyeshadow in “Moonlight”
  6. On my bottom lashline I applied “Chaos”, “Gonzo”, & “Fringe” & in the inner corner I applied a little bit of “Freak”.
  7. I applied my Sephora Liquid eyeliner and added Urban Decay Glitter liner to the inner corners to add a little sparkle.
  8. For mascara I used Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill & used Eylure Eyelashes #205.

Face

  1. I moisturized my face & applied my Primer from Benefit.
  2. For foundation I used – Make Up For Ever #140. I did some serious highlight & contouring for this look – for highlight I used Kat Von D concealer on light & for Contour i used a dark foundation stick by Maybelline.
  3. To set my foundation I used any pressed powder. To set my contour color I used Smashbox Halo Bronzer.
  4. For Blush I used MAC Cosmetics Blush in “Dame” and for highlight on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, & cupids bow, I used Becca Shimmering skin perfecter in “Opal”.

Lips

  1. I moisturized my lips with EOS Lip Balm (my FAVORITE)
  2. Lined my lips with MAC Heroine Lip liner
  3. Filled lips with MAC Heroine Lipstick

*You can always change things up a bit and go for a nude lip, I was feeling BOLD so I went with this purple*

Urban Decay did it again!!!!! on March 18, 2014, this BEAUTIFUL palette was released! If you love make up & have an open mind to color, you will LOVE this palette. Let’s talk about packaging – it’s sturdy. It has a magnetic closure, which keeps the palette nice and shut. It comes with a double ended brush & a little sampler of their 4 eyeshadow primers.

There are 10 colors in this palette. Each  of them are highly pigmented. The colors are so bright and you can create many different looks with this palette. I just wish they would have put in a different color instead of the silver. A yellow would be nice or even a neon orange, but something that was BRIGHT and not blehh. Now, there is something I NEED to put out there. Urban Decay makes sure to tell you that FOUR of these colors are NOT safe for the eyes. The colors are Slowburn, Savage, Jilted, & Urban. Not sure why, but I believe it’s because they were not FDA approved yet, BUT that didn’t stop me LOL. For people out there that want to try out this palette, use it at your own discretion. I personally did not have any issues with those colors in specific, BUT I did find that they stained the eyes when removing makeup. OVERALL, I love this palette, fall out was not bad, and color pay off is amazing!
