Yes Oh Yas Beauty Subcription: First Impressions

Hello lovelies! I recently signed up for Yes Oh Yas, a monthly beauty subscription. It includes 3-7 full size (!) products, valued over $70. Yes Oh Yas costs $14.99 a month, plus $9.50 shipping to Canada. Shipping to the US is cheaper, at $3.99. The products come in a pretty holographic silver bubble envelope, with extra bubble wrap to protect the more fragile items. I want to share my first impressions on the February 2019 package with you. Here are the products I received:
 From top, clockwise:
-Beauty Creations Emerald Eyeshadow Palette
-Bang Beauty Lip Crayon in Dangerous
-JCat Cosmetics Wholly Addiction Eyeliner in Bronze Shimmer
-Kokie Cosmetics Velvet Smooth Eyeliner in 526 Eggplant
-Inmo Concealer Brush
 -Inmo Angled Brush
-Inmo Crease Brush
Here is the card that came with the February package. I love keeping these cards!

Above are swatches of both the eyeliners and the lip crayon.
Here are some swatches from the Emerald Palette. I love the shimmery shades.
Here is a look I created using the Beauty Creations Emerald Eyeshadow Palette, the JCat Cosmetics Wholly Addiction Bronze Shimmer Eyeliner, and the Bang Beauty Dangerous Lip Crayon

I'd like to start by saying that brushes are a great item to receive in a beauty subscription. I can never get enough brushes! I used all three of the Inmo brushes to create the above look, and they did an excellent job. I especially love the Crease Brush. It's perfect for applying darker eyeshadow to the inner corners of my eyes. The Beauty Creations Emerald Palette has a huge mirror, and the lovely colors remind me fall. The Kokie Cosmetics Velvet Smooth Eyeliner in 526 Eggplant is true to it's name: it is very velvety! The JCat Cosmetics Wholly Addiction Eyeliner in Bronze Shimmer is also very smooth, and the lovely bronze color is something I can wear on a daily basis. I'm not normally a fan of lip crayons, but the Bang Beauty Dangerous Lip Crayon is so fun to wear. It glides on so nicely. I'm just not sure if the red color suits me.

My February package only arrived on March 7. However, I'm very pleased with the products I received. The wait was worth it! Overall I'm very happy I signed up for Yes Oh Yas. If you are interested in signing-up yourself, please click here.

Yes To Tomatoes Charcoal Mask

Hello lovely readers and happy March 2019! I'm very pleased that we have arrived in March. Spring is on the way, and my holiday to Cuba is fast approaching. I wanted to share my thoughts on the Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask. This was the first Yes To product I've ever used. I've heard many great things about Yes To, and I'm always a fan of charcoal skin care products. When the adorable packaging of this mask caught my eye, I decided to give it a go.
The mask has a lovely woodsy scent that makes me feel like I'm at a spa... seriously, I would re-purchase this mask for the scent alone! The mask has a thick, creamy consistency, and felt cool on my face when it was first applied. It contains salicylic acid as well as charcoal, so it works great for those pesky breakout days around my time of the month. Once the mask had dried (after about 10 minutes), my skin was left feeling very tight. The mask washed off easily and the final result was fresh, baby soft skin. 

Have you ever tried this mask or any other Yes To products? What were your thoughts? Thanks for stopping by! xo
