Masque Bar by Look Beauty Brightening Sheet Mask Review

Masque Bar by Look Beauty Brightening Sheet Mask

Target has a new Masque Bar by Look Beauty in stores this Spring that are sure to please sheet mask lovers. I tried out the Look Beauty Brightening Sheet Mask recently.

If you’re used to hauling 10 or more sheet masks in a box for around $8-$12 from Asia, Masque Bar might prove a tad expensive at a three set for $9.99 but they are far more easier to get your hands on. The budget world is sadly lacking in sheet masks here in the US. What’s common in the Asian market is sadly lacking in our own. I personally purchase sheet masks from a variety of sources but most of that shopping is done online with airmail fees involved.

It’s rather novel to be able to walk into my local Target and shop for a facial sheet mask. And most recently Walmart started selling My Beauty Diary online. I hope more beauty budget brands catch up.

So how are the Masque Bar by Look Beauty Sheet Masks?

Take a look!

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray Review

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray

NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Setting Spray is one of two new setting sprays the brand introduced for Spring 2013. These are 2 oz bottles for $8 each.

I’m a little iffy on Setting Sprays as I’m always sorta wary of spritzing a just made up face with what is essentially water combined with some other ingredients. It’s kinda like, wait, hold on a second, I just did my makeup now you want me to mist myself madly with water? Ummm no…!

But actually some do have benefits. Particularly if you’re a mineral girl or you use powder to set. A small amount of setting mist actually will give your makeup a more refined finish and in some cases they really do prolong the wear of makeup.

Does NYX’s version work?
