Still Kicking a FOTD and Update

I’m not dead, its just taken a lot more than I originally thought to get back into the swing of things. For starters I absolutely hate my new study/ makeup room so that will be changing. So you’ll probably notice my backgrounds change around a bit over the next month or so. There’s also been a few other things that have been taking up my time. But they are pretty boring, so onto something slightly more interesting, yeah!

lashesI just had to try out these Katy Perry Lashes as soon as they arrived. There will be a full review on the four of them once I’ve tried them all but today’s feature a pair in Oh, Honey! They really remind me of Ardell wispies which are one of my favourites for the times you want extra lashes without going completely overboard. I say without going overboard but I was just going grocery shopping so it kind of was already overboard. I get the strangest looks when I do my shopping, I guess the crazy hair doesn’t help but hell I don’t judge those that shop in their pj’s, or do I…

The lashes were sent to me as a surprise from a company and I am not being compensated for telling you what I think of them.

Eye’s Chic Eyelashes from KKCenterHK

lash2A Couple of months back you may have seen that I reviewed a more natural pair of lashes from KKCenterHK (that I’m STILL using), well today I’m here to show you a slightly more (okay a lot more) dramatic set!lash1

(more…)

Es Eyelashes from KKCenterHK

Choosing which ones to review was hard as there are so many fantastic styles to choose from. I ended up choosing the A218 style as these are a more natural, less dramatic lashes and although these aren’t exactly natural they are compared to the style of lash I would generally go for.

As these aren’t human hair lashes I was kind of expecting them to have that shiny plastic look some of the non natural lashes can have but they are actually quite fine and fluttery!

I have used them in two of my latest tutorials ( here and eyehere) and worn them out quite a few times and I’ve had numerous wears out of two pairs so I can see this pack of 10 lasting a very long time! Costing only $10.94 (USD) per box of 10 so that’s a little over a dollar a pair and with them lasting quite a few wears per pair they are definitely a bargain!

Another definite plus is that they can be bent and shaped easily and they are also fine which makes them very easy to apply. As always would recommend investing in a good glue, my personal madamebfatalefavourite is Duo, and application will be a breeze.

The site that sent me them was KKCentreHK and they stock a wide array of lashes to choose from plus wigs, makeup, shoes and other stuff as well! Shipping from what I can tell is fairly inexpensive and they have a live help chat if you need any further assistance. Everything else on the site is really inexpensive as well.

So all in all I’ve been really impressed with with the lashes and their performance and also the price. I will definitely purchase some more, maybe not of this style as I don’t think I’ll be running out anytime soon!

Review Revlon Lashes

I was sent these lashes to do a review on from a lovely Revlon rep..

REVLON FANTASY LENGTHS

MAXIMUN WEAR SELF -ADHESIVE LASHES

From website:

“REVLON® Fantasy Lengths™ Maximum Wear eyelashes are a revolutionary way to go from Plain Jane to Naturally Fantastic instantly. Without messy glue to fumble with – you can have perfect lashes that stay where you want them to – even in water!”

Here are My thoughts

To be honest, at first i was very sceptical about these actually working. To me these  seemed more like a fad than anything else.

But, I was pleasantly surprised! The adhesive band was very sticky and made for a very quick application without having to wait for a regular glue to get tacky.

I would definitely recommend using  the applicator tool, they stuck far better when i did use this. (You can also use it against the top as a guard to apply mascara to blend the falsies and your own together!) Also when applying, put in place hold down inner then outer and then hold down the entire strip with the applicator. I found this to be the best method.

The other thing i would recommend is that you should wear a black liner on your top lash line to blend the lashes with your own. As the glue adhesive band is black.

The lashes give a ‘natural’ effect and i think would be suitable for everyday wear. They are very flexible yet strong, and didn’t come apart when i cleaned them as some lashes do.

I tried the first pair on my sister without any makeup just to see how they apply. (as you can see she does have cosmetic tattooing but it has faded, a little bit of black liner would have blended the line nicely)

She really isn’t used to wearing lashes, as hers are pretty full anyway. She said she was surprised that she didn’t have a heavy feeling from them!

Here i applied a set on me but with blue liner, a black liner would have worked better though.

A very natural effect!

The  next lot were

REVLON FANTASY LENGTHS

MAXIMUN WEAR GLUE ON LASHES

from the website

“Glamorize your eyes! Instantly get beautiful sexy lashes in a snap with REVLON® Fantasy Lengths™ Maximum Wear Glue On eyelashes. Glue included.”

These are the types of lashes that I’m used to.

They also give a lovely effect but are a bit fuller than the self-adhesive kind.

The glue included is actually great, it got tacky fast, dried nicely and lasted all night. There is not much else to say but I’m very pleases with these too!

These are another pair my favourite. (sorry no picture of package but they are – 91128 LUSH) Also kind of hard to see with all the black sorry again! They come in 4 separated lash sections and look so pretty!

(Oh and the last three are actually from upcoming tutorials!)

 

As many of you know i  mainly use those lashes from sets on eBay in my tutorials, and whilst I do love them these lashes are lighter, more flexible and definitely easier to apply.

They also give a more natural effect, I know many of you aren’t comfortable with the full on  lashes that i tend to wear and these are a great other option to give a similar effect but  easier to wear.

So what I’m trying to say is

  • Both types are very flexible for an easy fit
  • They are all light and you barely even notice your wearing them
  • Gives a lovely fluttery natural look
  • Easy to apply
  • Nifty little applicator included in the self-adhesive
  • Easy to clean

So you can now make up your own mind from these pictures!!
