So I guess I'll go in the order of the list I put in the title of this post and start with the mini review! I'm shoving these two posts together because I don't think it's necessary to have two separate blog posts for each one lol.
Today's mini review will be on these AWESOME masks I discovered at Uwajimaya last weekend:
They are masks that look like MASKS!! Could I be any more vague? Hahaha you'll see...
|Kind of weird but really interesting and cool compared to plain masks!|
See? They look like those cool opera masks and stuff! There were tonssss of different designs but I chose this one because I thought the pink and purple flowers looked nice. The effects each of the masks offered were pretty similar anyways so I just went for design this time! Hahaha~ Some stores even sell ones that look like animals! I want to try those out sometime too!
The thing about single masks is, I don't usually buy them for the sake of it having an immediate effect on my skin. Mostly I get them to either try out a particular scent or try a brand I haven't tried yet. In this case I have tried Pure Smile before and it's currently my second favorite brand after My Beauty Diary and I just wanted to try it for the cool look of the mask haha ^>^
Here is what the mask looks like when first taken out of the bag:
|Lots of essence :3|
Another reason I like M.B.D. masks is they come with that plastic cover for ease of unfolding the mask. With this one I had trouble unfolding it and was scared it might rip! But luckily it didn't *phew* If you get these kinds of masks proceed with caution!!
Overall the look was cool and I want to try more masks like this but not necessarily for their effects. The scent of this one was strongly reminiscent of flowery notes like soapy perfume, ya get me? I didn't like the scent all that much. Lots of essence too, one very nice thing I noticed from Pure Smile, I like the consistency and amount of essence given! And of course my face was pretty much the same afterwards (left it on for a little over half an hour? Ooops I lost track of time! hahaha).
|After the mask! Sorry I didn't take a before shot T__T hahaha|
As for the mini DIY...I don't actually have a tutorial for anything this week ahha T__T BUT! I am currently working on making this dress:
|Ft. my messy closet hahaha|
I didn't draft up a pattern for this or anything. This is one of those projects that I don't pre-plan and I just go at them in a kind of angry and frustrated manner hahaha~ But I don't think it turned out so bad. I just need to finish the bottom ( I ran out of fabric and it ended up a bit too short for my taste lol) and add a few darts in places then it should be good :3 I'm excited to just wear it out regularly and over tee shirts and stuff. I wish more stores sold stuff like this~ Maybe when I get a hang of this pattern I'll do a tutorial for it? :D
I actually had a few posts queued up and they were supposed to post throughout the week but for some reason they didn't post! SO I guess I'll just wait to post them a bit longer so I don't have post after post popping up on here haha.
Thanks for reading through this mini post! Hee hee ^0^
