Masks - My Beauty Diary - Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Mask

4.0

May/01/2016

This was the first MBD mask I tried, and it inspired me to try many more.

Hyaluronic acid is one of my favorite skincare ingredients, and I have been using the indeed labs hydraluron mask religiously for years. When I saw this, I thought it might be a nice (cheaper) alternative. I was right. Comparatively, the essence in the MBD mask is much more liquid than the IL mask, which …

Masks - My Beauty Diary - Black Pearl Mask

May/01/2016

I tried the MBD hyaluronic acid mask and loved it so much I started researching the brand and which masks people liked the best. Seems this mask is a fan favorite, but it just didn't work for me.

I left the mask on for a good 20 minutes, and immediately after removing it, I could tell that my skin was craving more hydration. It felt tight and a little itchy. I looked in the …

Masks - My Beauty Diary - Aloe Sheet Mask

May/01/2016

I've tried a few different MBD masks in the last couple months, and this one is by far my favorite. I apply it to clean skin, usually while in a hot bath when my pores are most susceptible. I leave it on for 10 -20 minutes, and rub the remaining essence into my skin. I immediately follow with serum and face cream. The results are instant and noticeable.

I get dry between my …

Eye Shadow - L'Oreal Paris - La Palette Nude rose

I'm a UD Naked 3 girl. Use it everyday. As such, I've hit pan on my favorite shadows, and was looking for something similar in the drug store.

There are a few shades in this palette that are perfect dupes for Naked 3, but the majority are similar, but just slightly too gray or purple toned to be dupes. Thankfully, the light matte shades are good dupes and meet my needs …

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - Sheer Glow Foundation

Feb/17/2016

I love Sheer Glow - I'm on my third bottle. It is my perfect spring/summer/fall foundation. I do find it looks a bit cakey on my dry skin in the winter, though - and I normally switch to a BB cream in the winter.

Thankfully, I recently discovered a trick to help it look more sheer and glowy (see what I did there?) I just pour a small amount of foundation on the back of my hand …

I actually have the one that has little bits of gold glitter in it - though I plan on purchasing the glitter-free version in the near future.

I use this product in several different ways:
I use it nightly on my face as a moisturizer;
I apply it to my nails every day to strengthen them and keep my cuticles in line;
I put a few drops on my feet, then throw on a pair …

Brows - Annabelle - Skinny Brow Liner

I love this brow liner. It's user friendly, long wearing, it has a great consistency, not too waxy. The pigmentation is nice, and it comes in a variety of colours. The liner is thin enough that you can draw individual brow hairs, or use it to fill in wide gaps in sparse brows. It lasts a very long time, and comes in a wide range of colours.

The only thing I don't love …

1) As an all around toner;
2) Mixed with clay and essential oils to create a DIY face mask;
3) When I used to make my own bath bombs, I used this hazel as my binding agent;
4) Used …

Feb/03/2014

I have had a patch of rough, very dry skin on my nose and between my eyebrows since November when I fell and broke my nose. I have been using everything to try to get rid of it. After a week of using this cleanser, it is gone, and the scar it's less noticeable as well. This product takes all of my face makeup off, but I usually do need to follow up with eye makeup remover. To be honest, this …Read more
