To blurr out any eyeliner imperfections, set liner with a black eyeshadow. Not only will it help smooth out your liner but will also make it last longer.

I don’t have an idol. Sorry

Fall

An eyeshadow palette

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer & Tarte Blush in Exposed

I have a very simple skin care routine. I cleanse my skin with Simple Micellar Water with a cotton pad every morning and night.I use Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer every morning and apply Lancôme Bienfait Multi-Vital eye cream.

Quick Review: Cucumber Gel Mask 

Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask.  

 
  
Claims: 

•Refreshing •Cooling •Moisturizing •Calming gel helps soothe dry, irritated skin with extracts of cucumber, papaya, chamomile, pineapple, sugar, maple, sugarcane, orange, lemon, bilberry, aloe •For all Skin Types

Directions:

 Apply a generous coat on clean skin. Rinse after 10 minutes with cool water. Use 2-3 times a week or daily. 

Review: 

This is a lightweight gel mask that is very refreshing and cooling the second I apply it to my face. It’s gentle enough to use daily but I only use it once a week. Once I remove the mask my skin feels very smooth and hydrated and ready for makeup application.  It is very pricey, $52.00 for 5.0 oz but I have been using a sample size of 0.5 fl oz and so far I have been able to get about 5 uses out of it and I’m not half way done with it, a little goes a long way.  I’m very happy with the results of this mask. I will purchase the full size. You can find Peter Thomas Roth masks at: Sephora, Ulta, Macy’s, Nordstrom and Peter Thomas Roth website.

Have you tried any of the Peter Thomas Roth? If so, what are your thoughts? Have you tried this cucumber mask? Any recommendations for a cheaper alternative?

Bite Beauty: Agave Lip Mask (Review)

Do you need a moisture boost? Agave lip mask may be able to provide you that! They’re 3 options to chose from:

  • Original, clear (Google image)

  • Champagne a rose gold pearl. (Google image)
  •  Smashed a red-wine tint. (Google image)

 I have been using this agave original mask for over a month and I actually have seen and felt a difference in my lips. I use it about twice a day. My favorite time to apply it is before bed because I wake up with smooth, soft and hydrated lips, it’s pretty amazing. When I apply it in the morning I am able to see a plumping effect though out the day while having it on. It does not have a sticky feel. The mask does last on your lips for several hours and doesn’t move around. The texture is extremely thick almost waxy but with the warmth of your finger while application it melts and spreads beautifully. It has a soft sweet vanilla scent which I love. The scent does last a while so if you dislike vanilla scented products you may not enjoy it as much. The price for this mask is $26.00 for 0.52 oz but because of it’s rich formula all you need is a pea size amount. It comes in a squeeze tube, you do need to apply pressure to squeeze product out, just be careful not to take out too much.
