We were very curious when we spotted these lip mask looking things on the shelf. I had some sort of memory of seeing them online before, a lip mask for intense hydration and healing.

Sleek review and GIVEAWAY!!! =)

download (2) Slim, sleek, smooth palettes which open softly to a rainbow of scandalously pigmented smooth colours. Seductive pinks, shadowy bronzes and semitropical brights.
