Sunday Beauty Zen 9.20.2015

I started to do a series of what I like to call “Sunday Beauty Zen”, which are artsy-fartsy photos of beauty products that I have decided to “compose”.   I am not very good right now, but I hope to improve (practice makes perfect!) and it is very relaxing for me to do this.    If you want more information on a specific product, comment below and I will do my best to answer your question!  I most likely would have written about them (or will) here at my blog and if so, I will add those links at the end of the blog post.

Take photos of your “Beauty Zen” and post on your social media sites ~ use hashtag #unboxingbeautyzen so we can all see the Zenful products you love!

My Sunday Beauty Zen for 9.20.2015

Oh I love my Innisfree!  I went on a spree a couple of months ago and snagged all of the shadows from their Fall 2014 Collection. Yes, these are from the 2014 collection, but who cares?  These shades are timeless.  I had purchased a couple of them in the past, but I needed MOAR!  These are very pigmented, go on super smooth with very little fallout and come in both matte and shimmer shades.   I did clean up the cases as some of them were pretty shadow-splattered!!  I wish Innisfree did a palette with this collection, as they are all so beautiful.

Unboxing Beauty Product Info



A reader mentioned to me that Beauteque carried Annie’s Way facial sheet masks, so I hurried over there and grabbed 3 collections.  I obviously wanted to try a cedarwood mask (and the rose ones are going in giveaways)!!  All of these sound lovely and I will be packing some of them in my bag when I go on vacation 🙂  I will be doing instareviews on my IG account with my impressions of these masks as I try them, and when I have collected enough, I will post a full blog review on them.  So, stay tuned for that!

These masks sets are $14.00 each at and contain 2 sets of each type.  There is also an Anti-Wrinkle Collection and Whitening Collection, but I chose these 3 collections.  Let me know if you want ingredient lists on specific masks, as the box has them nicely printed on the back!!   I plan to have the Anti-Acne impressions up later today.  Use FALL10 to get 10% off your purchase at ~ good until 10/16/2015

  1. Wow. I need those Innisfree eyeshadows desperately now. Their color cosmetics don’t get enough love in the Western AB blog world IMO–I haven’t yet fallen hard for an Innisfree skincare product, but I’ve got several of their lipsticks and eyeliners and use those regularly. And I may need to further break my “no new sheet masks until I’m down to 200” rule and grab a couple of Annie’s Way sets. Your blog is turning into my biggest temptation!
