Moving Along...

Hey dolls!

Just a heads up... I've moved operations of this blog to my main blog.... I'm tired of having all the shit I write about all over the fucking place. I decided to import all the posts from this blog over to WordPress: 

Nothing has changed besides the URL and overall theme of my blog... I have all the shit I love to talk about alll in one place now! You can find my sheet masks posts by clicking on the Asian Beauty or Skincare tab (might chage to either/or) on the main page.

I'm keeping this blog up for I didn't change all the links in the imported blog posts so... unless you want dead links this'll have to stay. I won't be monitoring comments or anything over here anymore. All my old posts from here have been moved to WP and you will find all the same content there.

See ya on WordPress!

I really do <3
SO where the fuck is yesterday's review?!? I know, I know,,, I am halfway done with the review of yesterday's mask,.,., it will go live tonight! Might be a little late... I'm currently in the middle of doing something I may or may not regret tomorrow  XD (you'll see soon enough...).

#Soko7daychallenge Day 2: Not Baaad

Hey beauties! Here's my maskie for the second day in the Soko Glam 7 Day Challenge! <3

I couldn't resist using Hello Kitty Year of the Sheep stickers... it was fitting (the mask being a limited edition for the Chinese astrological Year of the Sheep and all...); plus, Hello Kitty XD If you didn't know, I looove HK. I have loads of stuff, and even a tattoo of her! :P

Year of the Sheep = lanolin being used in the mask, in case you were wondering if there was a connection somehow XD

Remember, if you want to play along just use a sheet mask everyday for a week, take a maskie, and use the hashtag in the title on Twitter, Instagram, or FB.

Look for the review for this mask later XD

My Scheming Rose Dew Moisturizing Mask

Hello lovelies! Today's review is the mask from Day 1 of the Soko Glam's 7 Day Challenge! Wooo!

This mask is from My Scheming, a Taiwanese brand, Rumor has it that they're made by the same manufacturer that makes My Beauty Diary, but I cannot corroborate that for sure XD I got a box of ten from Amazon for $15 with free shipping, which makes it about $1.50 a mask---not bad at all. It's from the only seller in the US licensed to sell this brand in the US. I got it lightning fast (they're located in NJ). Man, The packaging is so fucking cute on these masks!!
I was squeeing like an otaku when I got it, I tell ya XD
Some packaging porn :P
I have heard some wonderful things about this mask brand on Reddit on from other IG Asian Beauty fans, so I was super excited to try this! Plus, it's rose, my favorite scent evarrrrr.

Soko Glam Seven Day Challenge Day 1

Since Chel over at the Holy Snails! blog challenged me to the Soko Glam 7 Day Challenge on Instagram, I figured I'd share the resulting selfies on here, because relevant, right??

SO how does it work? Simple. You use a sheet mask for 7 days straight, take a selfie maskie, and tag it with #soko7daychallenge on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Ta-da!

Seriously, it's that easy...
This is what I do anyway (minus the flood of maskies anyway), so I figured it would be fun to play along with the other AB honies on IG :P

The plan is this: for the next seven days (including today, duh), I will post my selfie from the challenge and that should (hopefully XD) be followed by a full review for the mask in another post (if it doesn't exist already...I might use some of my faves I've reviewed already).

Stay tuned for the review in a couple of hours!

I challenge YOU to the SG challenge! Do eeet! I'm following the hashtag on IG :P

More Money Masks?!? No Thanks, Beauteque

What fuckery is this, you might be wondering....
So I got this flyer via email from Beauteque today.

Apparently no one has told them how much the money masks suck ass, so they are gonna have a special pouch featuring them next month!

OMG you actually want me to spend money on this bullshit?!??

Are you fucking serious?? Has no one really told them they're terrible?? Well, I fixed that today on Instagram when they posted about it (very nicely too I thought)... I'll let y'all know if they respond but don't hold your breath XD

Tony Moly I'm Real Tea Tree Mask Sheet

Hello dolls! Today's mask is from my AB bae, TonyMoly

I got this from Amazon in a pack of 11 different varieties for about $17 (it's cheaper now on there so go run and buy some!! XD), which works out to about $1.54 for the individual mask. If you've been reading my blog for awhile, surely you know by now now much I lurve TonyMoly masks...and TM in general XD
Well, yahhhh

LUS Good Face Snail & EGF Mask Sheet

Hey dolls! Today's mask is from LUS, a Korean brand.

I haven't heard much about this brand in the AB-o-sphere (and can't seem to find anything about them either), so I picked up this and another mask of theirs from TesterKorea and decided to give them a try... they certainly were cheap enough! I got this from TK for 1,000 won, or $0.84 USD. '

You must know by now I love a good bargain.

Wut wut!

Missha Pure Source Aloe Sheet Mask

Hey dolls! Today's mask is from Missha, a very popular Korean brand. One of my favorite masks evar are from Missha, so it boggles the mind why the fuck I never bothered to try this one before now XD Missha is best known for their First Time Essence (I have yet to try it XD) which has been called Holy Grail by many a AB enthusiast.

It's the mask so nice, I bought it twice! /sarcasm I got one in my May Mask Maven pouch, and before that I bought a pack of three on eBay for $4.14. So I had four of these suckers just laying around!

Seriously though...idk why it took so long to try it XD

Purederm Snail Cell Illuminating Multi Step Treatment

Hey dolls! Today's mask is from Purederm, a Korean brand.

Hmm, this is the second mask from them I'm reviewing in as many weeks! I decided to do this mask because I didn't see much buzz about it in the AB sphere... (aka none of my fave bloggers reviewed it yet XD). I also got this one from TesterKorea for 1,500 won, or $1.27 USD. Not bad, right? The other mask was kinda *yawn*, so I was hoping this one would be a bit more exciting, since it's a special dual step mask and all :D

How often do you see these kind of masks??

My Beauty Diary Royal Jelly Mask

Hey there! Today's mask is from My Beauty Diary, a Taiwanese brand. Yay! I love MBD masks! As you can see, I've reviewed a few already XD They're a staple in my my mask collection... or they really fucking should be, in any case. I got this in a box of 10 from Amazon for $12.99. A pretty great deal, seeing as though Wally World has it for $13.75. Although, let me say again: still cannot believe fucking Walmart has any K-Beauty stuff! O_O

I've had these for awhile and have used a few. It just came back into my rotation when I realized I never reviewed it (!) I should have; it was the first MBD mask I ever used. I could barely wait to get it on my face, lemmetellya.

Much excite! Much awesome skin :D

Mizon King to the Kong No. 1 Moist King’s Berry Mask Sheet

Hello dolls! Today's mask is from Mizon, a Korean brand. They are another one of my favorite Korean skin care brands... I cannot live without their Snail Repair line :P I got a pack of 7 for $9.99 on eBay (it's cheaper now! Gah!). It was shipped directly from Korea. I bought a bunch of stuff from them. They gave me lots of samples, shipped fast; really awesome seller :P

I've decided to drop the MOTD from the title. You get it; it's the Mask of the Day. I pretty much only blog about masks, so I think we can all assume it's the mask for whatever fucking day it is right? Plus, I am still tagging it appropriately, so you will still be able to find it under that ;)

Isn't the packaging cute?? LOL I laughed so much when I saw it... besides the promising description, it was what made me buy it XD Peach and Lily said the following:
From Mizon's King to the Kong Collection, this black chokeberry-infused sheet mask is formulated for all skin types. Chokeberry extract is packed with essential phyto-nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants that help to brighten skin and smooth the appearance of fine lines. It also has 80x more anthocyanin than grapes, and 10x more catechins and tannins than green tea, which means your skin will be left more appearing more radiant and healthy. Antioxidants protect the skin from environmental factors and help to boost elasticity.
I was like WHAT?!?
When I saw this gif, I knew I had to use it, Plus, hot damn I needed a good mask XD

Beauty Friends Cucumber Essence Mask

Shitty picture for a shitty mask. Ugh.
Howdy y'all!

Today's mask is from Vanedo/Beauty Friends, a Korean brand. I got these masks from eBay. It was in a pack of 12 masks for about $12 + free shipping!

I could find nothing (in English) about this company, and it looks like they re-branded these masks (as now they look all modern and flashy). Hmm. The packaging (besides basic directions and a short description of the featured ingredient in English) is all in Korean. I dunno what the fuck is in the mask besides the so-called featured ingredient, and I am almost afraid to find out O_o

So, umm, you know that adage, "you get what you pay for"? Looks like this time, it might very well be the case T_T

Ah, well, umm... can't win them all?? >_>

MOTD: Purederm Green Bean Essence Mask

(This is actually from 8/6... had it in draft and never finished it. Sorry, it's been a busy week!)

'Ello dolls! Today's mask is from Purederm, a Korean brand. I got his mask from TesterKorea  for 600 won, or about $0.51 USD. What a bargain! But man, I dunno if I'll ever shop at TK again... the wait time was almost a month, and the shipping near killed me -__-. I don't seem to see them at any other shop that I would buy from, so if you really wanna try it... be my guest and get it from TK :P

Anywho, today's mask featured ingredient is green beans. Yummm I love green beans!
I couldn't resist putting up a sloth eating a string bean :D

MOTD: Freeset Donkey Milk Skin Gel Aqua Mask Pack

Hola! Today's mask is from Freeset, a Korean brand (cannot find anything about this Google Fu has failed meee). I got this one in my June deluxe MaskGenie Pouch (which I didn't review... boo to me, right? It was a great pouch too...). Apparently Memebox has 'em for $2!!! (WHAT I paid fucking $5 at the Club Clio store for my other one O_o)

Man, I have been very excited to try this mask! It's loved by a lot of Korean Beauty bloggers, so I was totes excited to finally get one!!

Go meeee! XD
This is my second hydrogel mask ever. I really liked the first one I tried (from another brand...) and after all the buzz about this one, I was gung ho about trying it. I have been burned with some shitty masks lately, so it was high time to treat myself to something good. Yayyy! Totes excited, I tell ya.
Yippie! :D

New Template, Mask Spreadsheets and Other Randomness

Because Blogger is pretty basic and dumb, I had to change my layout back to one of their defaults. I had a nice custom template, but the comment section was broken and I have no Idea how to fix yeah. Back to Basic Bitch layout for me :/

Thanks Lorde and Taylor XD
I guess this isn't too bad, right?? I tried to make it as pretty as I could, in any case. I am contemplating switching this to Wordpress, any thoughts? The one plus to keeping it on Blogger is that Google gives me unlimited photo storage... handy for gif heavy posts XD

MOTDFLW: Urban Dollkiss Welcome to Korea Sheet Mask

(In case you were wondering about today's acronym: Mask of the Day From Last Week XD)

Heyyyy y'all!

Sorry for the abrupt hiatus. Man, I was sick as a fucking dog last week.... out of nowhere. Who likes to be sick in the summertime??? No one, that's who.

Anyway, today's mask is from Urban Dollkiss (aka/fka Baviphat). I got this is my July Beauteque Mask Maven box (it's not on their site yet....). I was soooo excited to try this mask! I love the packaging, but more importantly, I have a few products from UD/Baviphat that I really like, so I had high expectations for this mask.

So uh, remember how I promised you a review of a really shitty sheet mask last week?? This would be it, my dears.

Wahhhhh I wish it weren't so....
Don't ask me what the fuck is even in this mask.... Google gave me nothing. The packaging was mostly in Korean, and this month Beauteque didn't list any label info on the card. Ugh.

I am soooooo pissed off (still!)... it is a shitty excuse for a sheet mask, there's virtually no information on it besides people unboxing the July MM pouch... not even Beauteque has them on their site for sale by themselves! Just my luck, right?? Fuck it; we're gonna go straight to the review.

Tell 'em Lafayette! *slam*

Sick as Fuck, or I Hate Mondays

Hey dolls! I have some sad news: No MOTD post today. I'm sick as a motherfucker... I have bronchitis and it's kicking my ass :(

I'm fucking dying ova here....
...I'm coughing like these noobs smoking weed XD
...not a bad idea XD
I did use a really shitty mask last night. but I don't have the energy to give it the proper bitching out it needs. Also, my eyes are watering uncontrollably and I just generally feel like shit. Maybe tomorrow.... I won't be using a mask tonight anyway T_T

MOTD: Etude House 'I Need You' Mango Sheet Mask

Hey lovelies! Today's mask is from Etude House, a Korean Brand. I have used some of their other products and I really like the company, so I was totes excited to finally try one of their masks! They are another company known for their cute packaging :3

I bought this from Beauteque for $1.99. They have the packaging wrong on their site (they have the M is for Mango from the EH alphabet mask series... might be the same mask, but still XD). I got the real lowdown from Etude House:
Mango Mask - This mask sheet contains mango extract (Mangifera Indica (Mango) Fruit Extract) known for its variety of vitamins and fiber, helping to provide firm and healthy skin with its sweet and gentle touch.
Dave always knows how to say it best XD
Ahhh yeah! I fucking loooove mango everything! And I sure could use a "sweet, gentle touch"... on mah face ;)

MOTD: Dermal Platinum Collagen Essence Mask

'Ello dolls! Today's mask is from Dermal, a Korean brand.

They seem to be a hidden gem brand; I haven't seen much buzz about them on the AB circuit, in any case. Which is a shame, really. I have tried a few of their masks so far, and they are always great! They need more AB love :P

When I saw this mask all I could think was

I mean wow. Platinum on mah face? Sheeeeet, I don't even own anything platinum! I wanted to feel like a rich bitch for once, so I was more than happy to use this mask last night :D

MOTD: Hey! Pinkgo Girl Black Rose Collagen Intense Hydration Mask

Hey lovelies! Today's mask is from Hey! Pinkgo Girl, a Taiwanese brand. They have the cutest packaging! I'm serious, go look at their other packages. Just fucking adorable :P

I bought this in a box of 10 for about $13 on Amazon, from a seller authorized to sell this brand in the US. This was one of the first masks I bought after getting into sheet masks! :D This finally made its way back into my was banished for months (more on that later) XD.

 According to the listing on Amazon:
Hey! Pinkgo Girl Black Rose Collagen Intense Hydration Sheet Mask brings together an array of anti-aging ingredients that offer firming, toning and lifting benefits while effectively meeting your skin's need for hydration to visibly plump the complexion.

The SGS-approved thin mask features black rose extract to promote skin repair at the cellular level and address the underlying causes of premature signs of aging.

MOTD: My Beauty Diary Imperial Bird's Nest Mask

Hey dolls! Today's mask is from My Beauty Diary. a Taiwanese company. They are a pretty popular mask company...they even sell them at Walmart!! (note to self: compare prices at Wally World vs Amazon XD).

I bought mine from Beauteque for $1.99. I actually got another one in my June Mask Maven pouch too *le sigh*. But you know what? MBD and TM dupes are allllllways welcome in my stash (they're my two absolute fave mask companies) ;)

Anywho, according to Beauteque:
This mask provides the skin with nourishing and moisturizing nutrients. It moisturizes dry skin, feels soft and supple like a baby's skin. The enhanced hydration meets the ultimate needs of the skin and nourishing. The combination of rare elements from the sky, the extraction of 'Swiftlet's nest', and the extraction of deep-sea plant, 'coralline', with the reputation of 'submarine bird's nest' gives the skin this superb gourmet feast. It deeply improves skin hydration, provides rich nourishment and energy, heals dry and expression fine lines, erases dullness and roughness, and makes skin translucent, tender and smooth.
*grabby hands* Give it to meeeeee

MOTD: 3W Clinic Fresh Red Ginseng Mask Sheet

Hey lovelies! Today's mask is from 3W Clinic, a Korean company.

I can't seem to find out much about them online, but I know of them via adding a snail mask of theirs to my TesterKorea order I got back in May (haven't used it yet...). I got this mask in my June Beauteque Mask Maven pouch (you know, the one I got that I didn't review?? XD). Ahem. Beauteque has them in stock for $1.80..... the one I got from TK cost me 500 won, or $0.43--- the cheapest mask I own, as a matter of fact O_o.

July Beauteque Mask Maven Pouch Unboxing

Hey lovelies! Today I am fiiiinally getting around to my July Mask Maven unboxing (unpouching?)!! :D

It arrived quickly after they shipped it (since they shipped from NJ, I got it in two days) and I am quite excited to show you what's inside!

MOTD: TonyMoly 'I'm Real' Seaweed Mask

Hey dolls! Today's mask is from one of my favorite AB companies, TonyMoly. They're a Korean based company who have managed to make quite a name for themselves here in the States. They have two retail locations in NYC (they just had the grand opening for their official flagship store a few weeks ago! I totes missed it T_T)

Anyway, I bought this mask with its 10 sisters from Amazon. I bought them for $16.99, which works out to about $1.54 a mask, and it's cheaper now! Bastards. It's loads cheaper than buying it directly from the store (I bought some from the TM retail store for $3.45 each). I can tell you definitively that they are legit (at least the ones I got...) as I had my bae red wine from TM and have used the one from this kit and they were exactly the same.

MOTD: Innisfree It's Real! Squeeze Bija Mask

Heyy y'all! Today's mask is from Innisfree, a Korean based company. I bought this mask from TesterKorea for 950 won, or about $0.84. This company is known for their natural approach to skincare. They tend to use a lot of what us Westerners would call 'exotic' ingredients, primarily from Jeju Island in Korea. 

With that said, I hard a hard time finding anything about Bija. Even Google was like, what the fuck is it? XD After a look on the manufacturer's site, I found what they were referring to: torreya oil. Interesting.

According to Innisfree:
1. It's real squeeze mask with torreya oil! The fruits of the torreya tree have been highly appreciated and used as a precious ingredient.
2. Jeju green complex: Jeju green complex that consists of green tea, tangerine, cactus, Camellia leaves and orchid keep your skin healthy.
Ooo, gimmie gimme, I thought whilst selecting my mask last night. Sounds like what my skin needs after a muggy, grimy day in NYC!
