Beauty Abroad: Garnier Self-Heating Sauna Mask Review

Absolutely lovin’ the fact that Garner makes mask treatments in Asia! Dude, WTH? Why do we never get the cool stuff?

Recently, the Muse came across Garner Self-Heating Sauna Masks at a local Asian beauty shop so I hauled five packs, shrug they sounded good and the price was right at $3.00 for two.

What did I think?

Long Wearing Concealer: Maybelline Super Stay Concealer Review

When you’re a beauty junkie you’re almost always guaranteed to run across one or many products that promise you the world. Flawless skin, perfect skin, enhanced, HD ready skin, smooth finishes, moisturizing formulas, and one of my personal favs, long wearing formulas.

I can always refresh my lipstick and lipgloss. It doesn’t bother me in the least to re-apply. Granted I’d love something that didn’t only wear long but also wore all day but it’s not irritating doing a re-ap of my lip products.

My eyeshadow is virtually bullet proof thanks to Urban Decay Primer Potion so really I don’t need to bother myself with it at all.

Mmm blush normally sticks around well enough however like lipstick or gloss I’d love for it to stay all day but again I’m not bothered in the least.

My pet peeves?

Concealer and foundation. If I can find myself a concealer and a foundation that wears ALL day without moving, migrating, fading, or oxidizing I’d be a happy Muse indeed.
