The Lipstick League – Week of 1.18.16

Question of the Week: What are your feelings about the current sheet mask craze? Have you ever tried one? If so, do you prefer them to traditional facial masks?

EauMG’s Answer: Well, if you guys read my Empties posts, you know that I use them! Typically I use about 4-5 sheet masks a month. As far as preferring them, it depends. I also use wash-off gel, cream or clay masks. I like to use a mask that addresses whichever skin issue that I have going on at the time. And I tend to use sheet masks more in the summer because of their refreshing/cooling feel. Right now, I’m going through a wash-off cream mask phase but I love sheet masks.

  1. I have been spoiling myself with MASKS of all kinds! I’m loving the sleeping masks. It’s for the lazy person in me. I try to use them two to three times a month. If I could drink wine, spritz my perfume and wear a mask to the movies, I would be in heaven. Someday….

    1. You’ve described my perfect evening even if it is may not be so socially acceptable 😉 For now, my favorite evenings are like fancy candle, book or movie, wine, perfume and masks while wearing a Natori caftan.

      Which sort of sleeping masks are you into right now? I have a couple but they are better for my not-so-dry summer skin (Laniege and TonyMoly). I’d like to try a few more. It’s another excuse to buy masks…

  2. I really like the TonyMoly snail mask and the “Pearl” sheet mask from Sephora. I’ve also been having One (just one!) Sofia Blanc de Blanc tiny cans of bubbly. It makes me feel fancy while I’m watching Jessica Jones and old episodes of Alias. I’m upping my game on Tazerac also. Pea size amount under my sheet mask.

    1. Aren’t those little cans adorable??? I have no idea why those little things attract me like they do, but they do.

      I thought about upping my % of Retin A this year, but I think I’ll keep using .05 (for this year).
