Review: Shray Ms. Amazing Face Mask from Feb. Boxycharm

So I’m in love with the packaging on this product.. It’s seriously adorable.   

  
Putting this mask on is a bit strange, but I have to be honest I usually am not a fan of paper masks. I’m more of a brush-on kind of girl. With that being said this mask in an exception. Usually I don’t feel like I’m getting enough coverage from face masks, but this one felt (and kind of looked,) like a second skin once I had it on, and I’m really a fan. 

  
Excuse my face, I have a sick baby so I haven’t worn makeup in like a week, but look at this mask.! It seriously clings to your skin and feels like a regular mud mask which is so strange to me. It’s not like anything else I’ve ever tried.

When you take this mask off you aren’t supposed to rinse your face, I don’t know if that’s how all paper masks are, I haven’t used one in years, like I said I’m not really a fan of paper. I didn’t exfoliate my face this morning or last night because I wanted to see how the mask does on its own. After removing the paper and rubbing the leftover product into my skin I was left with fresh, moisturized, and dewy skin. It was very gentle on my sensitive skin with no burning at all, just a cool feeling while it was on. I feel like I could use this mask before makeup by itself with no problem on the days I don’t want to exfoliate and moisturize, and want a one step solution to my always-dry skin. 

Overall I think this is a really unique brand from packaging to product and I look forward to trying other things from them.!

Review: Buxom Full on Lip Glosses.

Okay so first of all I love this stuff. I bought my first tube of it back in July in the shade dolly, and it’s by far my favorite plumping lip gloss.  

 My little buxom collection so far. Find these babies Here, and Here.

From left to right it’s the lip polishes in Sophia and Dolly, and Lip Cream in Kir Royale.

I got the minis in a point reward thing from Sephora recently along with a buxom eyeliner and a mascara. Everything ive tried from this brand so far has been great but these plumping lip glosses are the best.

There’s two kinds, the lip polish and the lip cream, the only real difference is that the polish has shimmer. 

I adore plumping glosses like these because they feel so fresh on my lips and I love products with a good tingling feeling. Some plumping glosses burn like hell and those are not the ones I like. It’s so hard to find ones that are not uncomfortable. This brand is right on par with my other favorite which is from Dior.

    

Excuse my lack of eyebrows in the first picture. Isn’t it amazing what a different eyebrows make.?? Anyway this is the Sophia full on lip polish. It has such a perfect amount of pigment in my opinion, and is just great for days that I’m going for a more natural look, or to layer. 

The formula is not sticky, and it’s so comfortable on the lips, plus the shine is to die for. I wore this gloss for a night out Saturday, and the tingling/plumping effect lasted over two hours and even then the gloss was still visible. As for plumping I have really thin lips, I’d like to think this helps a bit, it feels like it, but I can’t be positive.

  

I swear I’m usually not a fan of lip glosses but I adore this stuff. 

 

Boxycharm; January + February

Boxycharm; January + February

So I’ve been getting ipsy for about a year now and I kind of feel like I’ve grown out of it a bit. Don’t get me wrong I love ipsy, but it was time to try new things.

Boxycharm.

For 21$ a month you get 4-5 FULL SIZE items. Yes, full size items.! What better way to try new products and find what you love.

  
This is the January box, I just got around to opening it. The theme of this box was “Eyes on 2016.”

  
This is the February box which has the the theme “Rush to Relax”

I’m so impressed with this subscription box, the packaging is simple and adorable, much more chic than ipsy in my opinion. Some of the brands are familiar to me and others are new ones that I’m excited to try. 

I can’t wait to test these products and review the ones I love for you guys. Hopefully once I’ve got my life together a little better and am not so busy, (haha,) I’ll start making monthly unboxing posts with reviews. 

I’m super excited about this.! If you have never done a subscription box or have been struggling to decide which one to use I would 100% reccomend this one and I’m only on month two.! I can’t wait to see what the rest of this year has in store.

NOOOOOO TO THE BUBBLE MASK

  
This photo describes the bubble mask experiment perfectly.

No.

Nooooooo.

I didn’t like it. 

I bought a bubble mask at Sephora and made my whole family try it. It may be great for some people but I felt like I had ants crawling in my skin. I couldn’t get it off fast enough. 

It was interesting.. But not for me.

Want to watch the video.?

If you do be sure to ignore my silly eyebrows at the end.. I had to get that crap off my face and may have taken some (or most) of my eyebrows off with it.. I also had some leftover glitter on my eyelids from my Valentine’s Day makeup, not a skin disease.. And what’s up with my scalp.? Why do I have an albino scalp.? Why am I so white.? Ughhhh.

Also if you watch to the end Payton is the cutest thing ever, she mimicks me. 

you have to watch it.
