It's a basic American dream to douse your entire body in glitter and walk around like a human unicorn. This is just a fact.
We all want to be covered from head to toe in glitter at any given point in our day. But it's hard to accomplish this.
Jerrod Blandino, the co-founder and chief creative officer of Too Faced Cosmetics, is looking to change this with the release of a peel-off glitter face mask that will turn you into the human unicorn you've always wanted to be.
On his personal Instagram account, Jerrod posted a teaser video of the glitter mask that they're working to create for mass consumption.
Okay, first thoughts: that mask looks so luscious and gooey that it almost feels like it could be the new version of adult play dough. Also, it looks like the peel-off mask actually peels off, which is more than you can say for a lot of them.
Usually, peel-off masks end up in disaster. You apply some sticky stuff to your face, then you wait for twenty minutes only to find out that said sticky stuff has actually glued itself to your skin and you're doomed to spend the rest of your life picking at little skin mask chips around your nose and cheeks. But this glitter mask looks like a different story.
One thing that remains to be seen is what the skincare benefits of the mask will be. After all, all skin masks are not created equal. Some are for rejuvenation, some are for blackheads, some are for minimizing pores... the list goes on.
Then again, does it really matter what the heck this glitter mask does for your skin? I'd probably buy it even if the product description was "does literally nothing to help your skin, besides making you look like a fairy for ten to fifteen minutes." That's a good enough reason for me to buy ten to twelve tubs of whatever container this comes in.
Too Faced is known for being a makeup company that pushes boundaries, so it's no surprise that the first ever mass market glitter skin mask might be coming from them any day.
The only question is how long we have to wait.
