Review: My Beauty Diary Lavender Mask + Lookbook

Wow it's already been a week since I've last updated!
How time flies so fast...

Today I will do another mask review (I've been really into masks lately).

Product Review: My Beauty Diary Provence Lavender Mask

Out of the Package: Folded

On my face!

Pros
- Very soft and thick fabric! Not cheap material. Packaging is cute and compact too.
- Non sticky liquid, absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn't leave sticky residue
- Relatively cheap (but I received this from a friend. Thanks Penny!) Sold on Sasa, etc.
- Left my face very cool, soft and moist. Left it on for 25-30 minutes
- I hate artificial Lavender smells but this one didn't smell bad at all!! Smelled mild too :)

Cons
- Stung a tiny bit after the mask started drying in the end of 30 minutes
- The shape of the mask doesn't perfectly fit my face so I often have to fold over the sides

Overall Rating
5/5 - Can't wait to get more!

Lookbook of Last Week

Wednesday

I'm very grunge these days. Plaid shirts, leather jackets, studded and embellished accessories, skinny jeans, converse, beat-up sneakers. Maybe it's a phase or just my style in general?

Outfit Info
Leather Jacket: Zara
Long sleeve Tee: Zipia :)
Jeans: Hudson Jeans
Flats: Dolce Vita

It's a baby with a red lightning bolt... haha

Newest Acquirement
Dolce Vita studded flats!!! They were on sale on Freepeople.com for $49.95 :D
The only bad thing... they are those bendy flats so they hurt a little when I walk (esp. ankle and toe area)

Thursday
My mickey/skull sweater :) Look up literary theory of Deconstruction that explains the duality.

Outfit Info
Sweater: Disney Vintage
Jeans: Zipia!
Flats: Dolce Vita

Will try to update more outfit posts since I'm being very lazy with makeup... Also the jeans, long sleeve tee, and plaid shirt were all of my purchases from Zipia. Small I know! But I shared the order with other people so that's a good enough amount for the first time.

Hope to update again later this week if I get the chance! Thank you for new followers and old, I've reached 250+! :)

I'm obsessed with my beauty diary masks! my favs are aloe and black pearl. i just tried bulgarian white rose, and it was nice. apple did nothing for me. i also tried chocolate, which i liked, but the chocolate smell kinda bugged me. i'm so obsessed!

Lurve that mickey/skull sweater to death! And your DV flats? Way too cute! I agree that the lavender MBD mask is quite nice. :) But yeah, what's with the shape being all funky?!

cellophanegirl said...

What size did u order for the zipia jeans? I'm always wondering if i should order a size up incase it doesn't fit!

LOVE my beauty diary mask! I bought a bunch of flavors but I find the apple one works really well on my skin. It did sting a bit for the first few minutes (i think that is not supposed to happen :/) but the results are great afterwards. My skin feels more firm, clear, and brighter! I call it my miracle mask haha
