Review: Ardell Invisiband Eye Lashes Wispies Black

Durability
These are a little fragile and need some taking care of in order to last longer.

Length + Volume
For comparison, I took a picture of them with my Diamond Lash Glamorous Eye falsies.
The blue line is the same length on both lashes.
Every asian brand lashes that I've bought are longer than the ones I buy here in the US.
This lash has a natural length that covers enough to make an effect. The volume is about the same as the other lashes pictured but since they're different designs, they don't give the same thick appearance.


Design
These are really lovely natural lashes :3 Whether you have nice lashes or thin ones like mine, these blend in really well and add enough depth without overdoing it. Great for day wear!


Comfort
I don't feel them at all when I wear them. They're very light and the band they're attached to is thin.



Makeup and Outfit Post

A few people said I reminded them of Snow White, haha!
It's just the color palette x]

Eyes
Eyeshadow was Luxury Reborn by NYC
I love this shade :3 It looks like a normal medium brown but it's actually a subtle shimmering gold and it's perfect for my skin tone. Doesn't look yellow or bright. Just a golden shade :3
Anywho, I used a dark brown eyeshadow to create a darker crease and to add depth.
Once again, wearing Glamorous Eye by Diamond Lash :D

Cheeks
Lightly swiped my brush on the reds and pinks from Manly eyeshadow palette.

Lips
Lined with The Style Soft Stay lip liner in beige with War Paint lip gloss on top in Hot Mess. It's like a red orange color. It's fairly opaque with a thick application.

I want a big mirror like in these dressing rooms xD

There was a new store in our local mall so I had to look into it. (Love Culture)
I liked a few of the items :3
Mainly these!

I really love salmon colors e ___e Pinkish orange stuff.

Kariss FP708 Wig Review

I actually got this wig awhile ago but I can't remember which eBay store I got it from.
Just search up Kariss FP708 Wig and results will pop up.
Just remember to check their reliability and feedback ;3



Type: Synthetic, Full Wig

Style: Wavy

Color: Dark Brown with a slight red undertone

Length: Long, from the tips of the bangs to the tips of the hair it's 28"

Quality: It kind of feels like processed hair. Dryish but at least it doesn't feel like plastic. It sort of shines like plastic but only under direct sunlight though the color kind of makes it look like it's just super shiny hair, haha. When I wore it out someone asked if I was just wearing extensions x] So I guess it's pretty believable :]
It does get messy but you can brush it out. Just don't let it sit and rat up or else you'll be sitting there for awhile brushing it out and pulling out the hairs. Though there is a looot of hair.

Thickness: This has full coverage so your hair won't be peeking through the back. That'll only happen if you don't properly tuck your hair into a wig cap. There's quite a bit of hair and the thickness of the strands themselves are pretty thick and sturdy but don't compare them to real hair. If you part it in the back, it will show through though so part it thoughtfully if you want to style it up or something.

Shape: The hair is flat on top so if you like volume, you'll have to work that in there but it's difficult due to the length and it easily rats up at the bottom. The waves are pretty consistent throughout the wig but there are some parts that are just flat. It's mainly flat around the head and then the rest is wavy.

Wearability: It's a very long wig so it's kind of hard to wear it around with fear of it being pulled right off my head x] It's pretty comfy though but as most wigs, it's still kinda itchy with your hair just sitting in there . ___.


I really enjoy wearing this wig cause it's purdy and dolly :3
I'm thinking about getting the Flaxen Yellow version!
Guess for what?
Possibly a future cosplay of Taiga Aisaka and just for fun :D
(I realize I don't look like Taiga but I lub her and ToraDora ; ____;)

Diamond Lash Series 2 - No. 1 Glamorous Eye Review


Awhile back I got my package from Shoppingholics that I ordered.
They included two free gifts :3
Durability
These lashes are really thick but flexible enough to shape. I'm not very kind to my lashes and tend to just rip them apart from pulling glue off impatiently but these have sustained with my carelessness. They can take a beating and last quite a bit :]

Length + Volume
I've noticed that the lashes I get from asian brands tend to be longer in length than the ones I buy here in the U.S. I much prefer it though because it fits my eye better and creates a sleeker look to my eyes. As for the volume, you can see that these are very drastic and long. They're very animated looking when blinking. I gave a pair to my sister and I just stare at her eyes when she blinks, haha!

Design
They're obviously not meant to look natural but I love the combination they've used for this lash. Below the dramatic part of the lash, they've got a criss-crossing pattern that blends better with my natural eyelashes.

Comfort
These do feel a little heavy and stiff due to the thickness of the lashes.

 I've been obsessed with these lately so I wear them during the day and night x]
Here's a few pictures I've taken since I got them :]

REVIEW
First off, my skin is combination oily and dry.
Oily around my nose, chin, and forehead.
Dry around my mouth and cheeks.

Top left: bare skin, Top right: swatch
Bottom left: blended in, Bottom right: after a few minutes
(Beauty mark! I know, it's kinda weird but it shows the coverage and such.)
I was hedging with this brand for awhile even though they have a wider range of colors but when I found out about Honey Beige I went on a review hunt to look for pictures to see if it would match my skin tone and this was the perfect color! 
In the past I had Skin79 Oriental Gold BB Cream but it was way too light for my skin and it felt too dewy which doesn't go well with my skin.

Coverage
I use two pumps for full coverage but one pump is enough to cover the entire face. I've skipped using concealer when I use this product, which is awesome. I also build it up to where my skin tone is even.

Color
Unfortunately, I don't know what my skin tone is so I can't tell you I'm a NC whatever or another . ___."
If I ever find out, I'll let you know! Hahah, but this is only a tad bit lighter than my skin tone but not noticeably.

Texture
It's very light. It doesn't feel too thick and the texture is very smooth. It does take a little work to get it even. It doesn't just glide on perfectly.

Scent
It does have a mature powdered parfum scent. I can't guarantee whether people would like it or not but it doesn't bother me. The scent dulls out.

Wearability
I was being bad and to test it out I wore my makeup while exercising. Even though I was sweating, everything stayed in place. It was amazing. The most bottom picture is me after a run x]
It's breathable and it doesn't feel like it's suffocating my face. (I had to show off on Tumblr xDDD)

Oil Control
I'm surprised with how well this holds up. I still get oily but not nearly as much. It kinda leaves me dumbfounded cause I'm so used to continuously blotting my nose throughout the day.

Moisture
The first time I tried this I skipped my moisturizer just to see and my skin was still too dry. I wasn't as oily but the other part of my skin which is dry was not happy, so I can't skip moisturizing when using this. If anything at all, it actually feels a tiny bit drying to me which is interesting. Though that may be due to the new skin products I've been using.

These four pictures were taken by two different window lights.

Item Post

 Just sharing some things that I've gotten recently and a few that I've been meaning to post. I also randomly get questions of where I shop and where I get certain items. I think I'll start making posts of items that I'm eyeing? Dunno. What do you guys want? Haha! Let me know :]


On to the post...
Jacket - Steps $15.99
I was surprised to find a jacket at $15.99 in this style! I've always wanted one but being in Florida there's only a week's worth of really cold weather every year so I never bothered to buy a jacket. I got this just in case x]

Skull Top/Dress - valuefashionshop (eBay) $17.99
This shirt feels just as it looks costumey but I wear it anyways xD I think it's cute but I don't think a lot of people would be thrilled of it's quality. It's pretty much the same in the shop pictures as it is in person but I think they clipped it or tailored it for the model because it doesn't have any shape. It's a One Size but it's very stretchy and can fit XS-S/2-8 from their site information.
I wear it as a dress because I'm that short xD But I still wear shorts underneath because it's still pretty darn short. For most it would be a top. Also, it has little shoulder pads in it. I'm not one for shoulder pads, especially since I already have broad shoulders but I actually quite like it. It gives more shape. 
The fabric is really thin but it's the kind that makes you heat up real quick too.

Skirt - eBay $13
I'm never buying from this place again. Shipping took forever and even though I don't mind replicas, the quality of this was too disappointing. I still wear it, but it's not my favorite. It's made of wool, it's thick, it's heavy, it's also very stretchy so the waist expands but I don't know how far. I was expecting it to be more comfortable and airy because of the weather here. This is best suited for winter time which I'll gladly use since I still like wearing skirts when it's cold x]

Top - Steps $6.99
I don't have very many tops so I was pretty pleased to have found this at such an awesome price :3 It's uber comfortable and light.

Mickey Mouse Sunglasses - eBay $10
Got these for going to Disneyworld x] It's too bad they're so heavy though! But they're heavy duty for blocking the sun. They're really dark when you have the lenses down. If you want a pair just search Mickey Mouse Sunglasses on eBay. The prices range for each seller.

I got this awhile ago but I never made a post about it. It's a little wrinkly cause when I washed it I was careless and let it dry all funky. Just excuse that x3
Anywhooo, this is a great item for making instant Peter Pan collar dresses! It's pretty dandy. It changes the look of my outfit when I put it on. The only unfortunate part is that I haven't a way to anchor it to my clothes so it moves around. If you get "fashion tape" it'll settle wherever you tape it to.

(I forgot the prices, so I'm just guessing.)
Black Metal Necklace - Bealls Outlet $4
I like to stop by once in awhile to see if they have anything pretty to buy.
A lot of their jewelry is between $2-$5. It's hit and miss every time I go though.
This was golden though. It's sooo beautiful * A*

Doll Necklace - Forever 21 $13
Got this last winter so it's been awhile. It's one of my favorite necklaces :3 It's so cute!
I still consider it new because it continues to bring joy to my heart xD

Gold Tassel Necklace - Gift
Got this as a Christmas gift a couple years back and it's still one of my favorite necklaces :D 
TASSELS.

Golden Skull Necklace - Icing by Claire's $13
Can't remember how long I've had this but it's been only a few months I believe.
Also one of my favorite necklaces! I wear it to church a lot :3

Got little nail polish bottles from Sally's cause the glitter was pretty . ____.
I haven't done glittery in a LOOONG time because it's such a pain to take off but I couldn't help myself Dx They're nice :3 My sister has the same nails too xD

I've been meaning to post these too.
Hair Clips
As gifts my friend sent me these beautiful swarovski crystal hair clips! They're crazy beautiful in person and super shiny. She works at a SoHo kiosk so she gots tha deals B]

Qupid Shoes
And my Quipid shoes that I got awhile ago. I never made a post about them. I've worn them well enough to know that they're my favorite shoes to wear. They're pretty comfy with the right socks and the difference between the heel and platform is comfortable for me. Got these from LuLu's.

This one's random! My husband got this and it's actually hella fun if you're into games that require patience and thinking x] We played it with his parents for an hour or more. It took forever for anyone to start making real damage. I don't know who else would play this with us, hahaha!

AND HERE'S AN AWKWARD PICTURE OF ME :D
My room was messy so you get a background of crystals :3
Uhg, I still can't get over posting full body pictures of me . ___.

This was a new top too (kinda, from November), I forgot.
It was $23 from Papaya.
Once again, I'm short so I wear it as a dress . ___.
It looks a lot better, to me, when it's belted than when it's all flowy and swooshy.

I don't think I posted this either. This was over a week ago.
Okay, that's all :]
