Masks for Beauty - Montagne Jeuness Sheet Masque

Not long ago, I received a Dead Sea Mud Spa sheet masque by Montagne Jeunesse in my Influenster box. I gave one away for a giveaway several months ago, but I never tested it out for myself! I love face masks. I have 4 full size bottles of clay masks and several deluxe samples and a small box full of foil samples. So needless to say, I was very excited to try out this sheet mask!

It's never easy to take pictures

He thinks he's my assistant. He'll sit and watch as I type up posts. Sometimes he'll even have a little something to say about it. And of course, if he thinks the photo I'm about to take is lacking a little something, he'll make sure that he's in the photo to make it that much better.

Things just wouldn't be the same without him. My cat.

Here are a few pictures of him "trying to help me out".

NYC New York Color - Go big or Go home!

I recently received two NYC (New York Color) products, courtesy of Influenster. I've seen the brand at Shoppers on several occasions, but the display never drew me in so I've never tried it.

Like essence cosmetics, NYC has it's own little display, usually at the end of an aisle (not the end cap) and I believe their products range from $0.99 to $4.99.

I received their Big Bold Curl Mascara and Big Bold Shine Lipgloss.

Trend Alert – Stacking Rings (Guest Post)

As a new year arrives we kiss goodbye to last year’s jewellery trends and welcome the wealth of new designs and styles that are set to take the world of fashion by storm. However, there is one trend that won’t be going anywhere in 2014, and this is stacked rings. This eye-catching jewellery trend burst on to the scene during autumn 2013. It is only set to pick up more momentum as fashionistas experiment further with the fun of striking stacked rings.

Italian Christmas Gifts (Fashion)

I don't normally post about what I received for Christmas. Don't get me wrong, I love seeing what everyone else got, but I just feel like someone might take it as boasting. While I won't show everything, I did get a few special pieces from Italy, thanks to my parents who went there in the late summer.

Perfect Manicure in minutes!

Back in September I had purchased and used a set of imPRESS nails. In November, I received another set from an Influenster VoxBox (Maple VoxBox) , which reminded me that I really should post a review about the nails! The day I used the nails, I had posted a picture to Instagram here.

The nails that I received in my box were bright purple, orange and yellow with dots of various sizes, in the same colours. In my eyes, completely tacky! I was actually going to paint them, however a friend of mine seen them and loved them (possibly because of it's craziness!). So, I don't have those to review anymore.

Quite possibly the worst nail polish ever

source: Essie.com

I'm not exactly a nail polish expert, however I know a bad polish when I try it. When I first seen Essie's Encrusted Treasures holiday collection, I was really excited about the collection. In the bottles, they all look gorgeous. I even purchased one of them and fell in love. So I thought that I'd try one of the textured polishes they have as part of the collection. I've tried textured polishes before (OPI liquid sand) and loved it. So I figured that Essie's would be great as well.

essence + Justin Bieber = ?

I'm not a Belieber, but I give the kid kudos for what he's done. So why is a beauty junky who isn't a fan mentioning his name in a post? Well,  essence cosmetics is an official sponsor of his most recent tour and has created a limited edition Trend Edition called Beauty Beats - Girls on Tour With Justin Bieber.
