Friday Face Mask: Erborian Matte & Glow Shot Masks

Face Masks had that moment where everyone was doing them, all the time. The more instagrammable the better it seemed. How they looked on seemed to be more important than what they did (if anything) for a while there.

The glitter particles are suspended in the gel formula, and they won't clog pores. … [Read more...]
