25mm Mink Hair lashes |Premium Hair Collection *Extra AF*

Hi Loves,

As a fellow beauty lover I feel like you can never have enough lashes, they just complete the look, and set the difference between dramatic & subtle. Recently I had the chance to work with premium hair collection and try 2 of their lash styles, one being 25mm lashes & the other a 3d mink lash, obviously I automatically said yass to the task, and the styles surpassed my expectations.

The first lash style I got to try was the 25mm lash style named “September” these lashes are so beautiful, they complement any look adding a sense of dramatics.. These lashes are amazing the lashes itself are soft; and completely natural, also the band is completely flexible making it super easy to apply on the lid. When it comes to lashes, I know doubt can be a bit obsessive and these lashes are a great addition to the collection.

The next pair is a 3d mink lash hair style named “Dubai” to say the least, these are the more subtle of the two.. The lash hairs are soft, and wispy, giving the lash look an au natural look, I favor these lashes a lot, because they can be worn daily, also they sit comfortably on the lid, without feeling like there’s a huge palm tree on the eyes ( you know the lashes I’m talm bout). The flexibility of the lash band makes the application a lot easier and quicker.

I did a little 90’s inspired makeup look to show off the lashes! Hope you enjoyed this post, If you want to see more of this content, Like and comment if you love lashes as much as I do.


LOTD || Morphe 35M Boss Mood palette

HI Loves,

It feels like it’s been forever since I incorporated a makeup look on my blog, but today that changes! I’m in absolute awe of Morphe, they just give me everything I want in makeup, they consist of pigment, brushes, and best of all great prices; like what more can you ask for. Recently I was able to get their old but new 35m Boss Mood palette for $10 during Ulta’s 25 day Christmas countdown, now normally I don’t really partake in this event, but I was in need of some much needed makeup retail therapy. The Boss Mood palette consist of 35 shades from neon green to the blackest of black. I love their collection of shades; the shimmer shades are pigmented AF, and relatively smooth in texture, they glide on the lid so easily and pick up real nice. The other matte shades are really gorgeous, they have a variety of shades neon, army, berry, reds; the only color the palette need was a pink to be damn near perfect.

Anyhow I did create this purple/cranberry look using just about all the purple tones and a few hints of reds. I hope you enjoyed this very minimal post, I’ll be back with more Makeup MOndays!!

Touch in Sol | Mascara + duo chrome eyeshadow

mascara1.12

Hi Lovelies,

K- beauty have really been trending this year in makeup + skincare, trying new brands gives me an idea of what to look forward to with brands & products, well the brand I’ve reviewed recently is touch in sol. 

Touch in sol is a Korean brand, that was founded in Seoul, Korea. This particular brand creates affordable, fun beauty that showcases a variety from skincare to cosmetics. The brand develops products infused with natural botanical ingredients that are cruelty-free.

I have tested out 2 products from their inclusive line; first is a Voluminous mascara & the other is a dual duo-chrome eyeshadow.

Stretchex stretch lash effect mascara

The Stretchex mascara is a volume infused mascara; enriched with silk protein to protect and elongate the lashes. I love this mascara the formula is not heavy & doesn’ t contain a lot of wax, no one wants spider lashes, this is a very build-able mascara, which you can manipulate how thick you want your lashes. The wand is curved and able to get each individual lash. The application is very beauty and the lash wear is impressive. I know we all been through the moments of taking off makeup, and the process can be long, but this mascara comes off with no problem; using something light like Baby oil, or Urban decay meltdown makeup remover gets it off super fast! super easy. This mascara is $22 USD, which falls in the price range of luxury brands. Now, is the product a bit expensive? yeaahhh, but like luxury brands, you question whether you’re paying for product or brand, in this case it’s both. K- beauty is a highly favored brand now a days, but as far as the product itself, it works as it advertise.

Metallist liquid foil & glitter duo shadow

Let’s chit chat on this product, liquid shadows have been the Gag! of the world of eyeshadow; and when you think about every brand jumped on the band wagon to create them from L’Oreal to Stila cosmetics, & K- beauty has joined the crew. Touch in sol have created foil/glitter duo shadows coming in various shades. The shades come in 9 different shades( swatched below) and the one I got to try was the shade Eldora, which was a pigmented Gold shimmer and a pressed gold foil.

I really love the shade it’s really gold and creamy when applying, it does dry out a bit when blending, but as an all over shadow it works. The shadow has an angled doe foot  applicator, which allows a lot of manipulation in how much product is applied, so that’s definitely an advantage. The foil side has a flat spatula applicator to pack on the product, I really like this, just enough product comes out, but the fallout is so crazy, friendly warning! I would just say be careful, so glitter doesn’t get in your eye. I really like this shadow duo, it’s price is $24 USD, which is again a luxury price range, but you’re getting 2 shadow choices for the price.
