Ahhhh!!! THERE’S A SPIDER ON MY EYE!!!!

So a couple of weeks ago a friend of mine gave me a coupon for $5 off of any ebay purchase. Not having shopped on  ebay for months, I browsed, perused and SHOCK FACE!!!! Look at what I found!!!!

Ya’ll I just bought two packs of 10 lash sets each and I don’t even wear fake lashes…EVER!!!

So why waste my money on something I don’t use? Because it cost me $1.98 shipping included!!!

Excited I ripped open the boxes and this is what they look like inside. I bought numbers 127 and 128, and as you can see I’ve been playing dress-up with some of them 🙂

127 are dense all the way and very thick the 128 are more “natural” with a dense base and a slight flare towards the edges.

So what do I think:

Not being a lash wearer I feel these are a really fun product to experiment with.  Yes they feel heavy, look fake if not applied right and are the creepiest looking thing when you wake up in the morning and find them on your bathroom counter, but they give a great effect.

NAKED EYE vs DOLLED UP EYE

(I feel like the Asian woman on YouTube who shows the power of makeup  🙂 )

Both eyes have the same products expect left eye (your right) has lashes

FINAL WORD: If you have 99 pennies to spare I say order a pair!  My suggestion however,  if you are a newb to the fake lash world, is to start off with less dramatic lashes because they take a while to get used to. Plus because they are a little heavy they gave me a droopy eye kinda look, which would look really sexy with a smokey eye, but for an everyday look, I just looked stoned 🙂

MY FIRST GLAM BAG!!! with mini review

So I am sure if you are a beauty fanatic then you have scoured the beauty videos on YouTube and probably have watched the videos called “YouTube Made Me Do It.”  Well this is my “Blogging Made Me Do IT.” 🙂

Before wordpress I had no interest in the monthly beauty box thingys. Although I like reading about them, I had no  interest in purchasing them. But then I thought, you know what, why the heck not. 🙂

So I chose to purchase  from myglam.com, because I found them to be the cheapest. I mean $10 thats it!

So here’s what I got!

All the stuff came in this shiny bubble envelope

When I open it, out came a postcard with all the YouTube gals who are the face of the company

All the products came in a cute little metalic pink makeup bag

Here’s the 5 (technically 4 since the brushes are a set) that were in the bag

DermStore Lip Quench-Moisture Infused Lip Treatment: claims to be a treatment to help nourish, soften and smooth lips.

My initial reaction: LOVE! I put it on my lips already feel awesome! Although the tube is a b**** to squeeze and get the product out, it works wonders (so far). It’s the consistency of Vaseline, but it stays on a lot better and to me it smells like strawberries with a hint of mint.

All-Belle Lashes– claim to accentuate you eyes.

My initial reaction: I’m not really a lash kinda gal since thankfully my natural ones are just fine for me and VERY RARELY do I wear fake lashes, but these will be fun to play around with.

All over eyeshadow brush and angled brush: claim to be “hand picked by Michelle.”

My initial reaction: I tried these out and they are duds. Nothing special. I tried the angled brush to apply gel  liner but because it was so flimsy it kept folding, so I’m gonna have to find another use for it, maybe for my eyebrows.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Junkie: Creamy Green/Teal (depending on the lighting) eyeliner with gold specks. 

My initial reaction: For me this pencil alone was worth the $10. These liners normally sell for double the price where I live and this travel size one is perfect for me. Of course I tried it on when I opened the package and so far…I love! The liner is so creamy, the color is so fun and gorgeous and I actually like the gold specks 🙂 But the downside, I need a really good primer because unfortunatley for me, my oily lids will not allow this product to stay put, it actually smudged onto my upper lids:(

OVERALL: It was okay. I don’t know why, but I was expecting so much more. Not  necessarily more products but….I don’t know. I think I had built up my purchase so much in my head that I really set myself up for disappointment. So will I be re-purchasing from MyGlam…..maybe. I think I will give it one more month and if I don’t like that package, I will sadly have to switch.

Review: Maybelline Falsies Mascara!!!

Image

Alright, so if you haven’t already guessed from my screen name, mascara is my vice! If I could have only one makeup product for the rest of my life, it probably would be mascara. I’ve spent more money on testing drugstore mascaras, then I have on any other product from the drugstore. With that being said, ladies and gentlemen let me present to you, Maybelline Falsies Volume Express! If you already have tried/purchased it, great, if not oh man are you missing out!

DISCLAIMER: I already have fairly long lashes so this mascara just intensified this and made them gorgeously darker,longer and dense looking

Product: This is hands down my favorite drugstore mascara EVER (well for now anyways 🙂 ). Advertised as being able to increase your natural lashes by 300% yeah, i believe it, this product not only volumizes and lengthens, but it fills in the patches between your lashes as well, given them a deep dark look.  When I first got the  mascara I was really thrown off by the wand. Its kind of spiky, its stiff and has a weird curve to it. But once I figured out the swoop side goes up, I was ready to amaze the world with my “natural falsies”.

Packaging: The bright purple  packaging is definitely  fun and catchy, and the size is comparable to the Covergirl Blast.

Price: Anywhere form $5-$8 depending on location and availability

Overall: LOVE LOVE LOVE! However, I do where contacts and if I where the non-waterproof for longer then ten hours my eyes become very sensitive and itchy, so I would recommend the waterproof mascara.
