Radiance Boosting Glitter Face Mask.
So, I’m always up for trying a new skincare product, and when that product is called ‘pink tiara’ and boasts actual glitter in it, I’m 100% in. The radiance boosting part also excites me as due to the amount of product I use on my face, a mask is a god send to brighten up my complexion at times.
The packaging says the following:
- Clean and dry skin before use – this I did thoroughly
- Using the spatula, mix the mask to activate the glitter formula – to be honest, the glitter formula didn’t change one bit upon stirring. Also, the spatula is not conducive to being able to scoop the very gooey and sticky mask up once mixed. A little curved spoon would be good, with a flat end to spread
- Apply liberally. This I did (see picture below). It’s not the glittery pretty mask it boasts on the internet, but I’ve only just applied it, so let’s wait and see
- Wait 30 minutes … this I am doing as I type
The scent of the mask is nice. It’s a peachy smell that resembles the other Too Faced peach range. The feel on the skin is a little tingly, not irritating, just a ‘it’s doing something tingle’ if that makes sense. At £42 it is quite high end for a mask, so I am looking forward to seeing the end result. Fingers crossed it is worth it.
The mask dries down quickly. The tightness on the face is just right and the glitter stays put as well, which is a bonus for a glitter queen like myself. The peach smell also remains for the duration and my skin feels warm, tingly and comfortable.
At 15 minutes in my IPhone no longer recognises my face … so it must be doing something. The warmth has subsided a little bit and the tightness intensified, but still very comfortable.
At 30 minutes the mask is set and feels almost rubbery to the touch. It’s not rock hard, so I can still speak and frown (not that I want to frown). The peach smell is subtle now and the tingling has subsided to just a nice warm feeling. Now it’s time to peel it off. The instructions state that you should start from the outer corners and gently peel off. Remove any excess afterwards.
It actually wasn’t too hard to get it off. However I discovered that a section hadn’t dried down as much as I thought so that became a little bit messy. All in all though it did what it said on the box, it peeled away.
My skin feels a little tight and sticky in places (but that might be because of the areas that didn’t set fully). My skin looks glittery too, which I am not totally against. Once I moisturise, the tightness goes but the glitter doesn’t.
Final thoughts …
This is marketed as a very glamorous product. The packaging is lovely, the scent is nice and the feeling on the skin is comfortable. Is it worth the splurge? I’m not totally convinced but I did really enjoy it. If you want something a little cheaper, try the Sephora masks. If you want to treat yourself however, the Glow Job mask is a good contender for giving your skin a healthy glow. Make sure you let it totally set as it is a real nightmare to get off the skin in its sticky/gooey state. Also be warned that some of that after glow comes directly from the glitter itself. But if you are a glitter kinda gal, then you won’t be upset by this!
Have a great day!
