    Just call us the glitter queens.

    One of the new beauty trends that has been blowing up this holiday season is the #Glittermask, Glam Glow's first facial peel-off mask that contains *glitter.*

    So, of course, we HAD to test it out for ourselves!

    The directions for the #Glittermask are simple. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin using the adorable dipping brush, then let it set for 20-30 minutes while you take a million selfies — because this mask is too pretty to look away!

    Farrah was surprised that it was less messy than she expected.

    Not going to lie, I felt really glamorous with this mask on. I looked like a tree ornament! The product went on smoothly and smelled AMAZING, like a piña colada. I would drink it if I could. While it was drying, I felt a really cold sensation. But maybe it was just the mask at work cleansing my face skin? I was concerned the mask wouldn't cleanly peel off and that it'd leave flecks of glitter behind, but neither of that happened. My skin did feel softer to the touch and ~glowier~ than normal. I'd definitely buy this for myself if it wasn't a whooping $69 for 1.7 oz, so maybe I'll put it on my Christmas list.

    Nina was pleasantly surprised that the glitter didn't scratch her face.

    This mask made me feel like the center of a freakin’ galaxy. Which makes sense because I, too, have a black hole in my center. JK. This mask smelled like a fruity cocktail, which was weird considering it’s pitch black and glittery. But I’d drink it. It goes on nice and gloopy, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I didn’t actually feel the glitter. I was worried it would scratch my face, but it stayed suspended in the mask goop very well, so my skin wasn’t irritated. I love feeling like I’m being productive by taking care of my skin but also getting cute selfies in the process. The only thing that really sucks is that they suggest you use it twice a week! At $69 that’s a little rich for me, especially because there’s not a ton of product in that tiny, shiny jar. But I would gladly buy it and use it that often if someone agreed to pay my rent for the rest of my life.

    Chrissy was shook that smearing glitter all over her face actually transformed her dry-ass skin.

    OK, let's be real: for $69 (hehe) this face mask better freakin' D-E-L-I-V-E-R, and dudes, it totally did. Typically, when I see a pot full of glitter, I sprint (well, more like heartily walk, lol) as fast as possible so not even a fleck will land on my skin — 'cause we all know that shit never comes off — but this incredible formula serves insane amounts of shine, a super-charged tingle, and a scent that instantly transports me back to my favorite Palm Springs tiki bar. My dry-ass skin felt amazing after this goo sat on my face for 30 minutes, and it's definitely something you want to bust out at a bachelorette party to trick everyone into thinking you're a rich bitch when you're really still on your parent's cell phone family plan and paying off your student loans even though you graduated 10 years ago. Not like...I know anything about that...

    Overall, we thought the #Glittermask made us feel incredibly fancy compared to regular mud masks, and it's definitely worth trying at least once! You can purchase it here for $69 from Glam Glow.
