Hits ( Eye Lashes and Glue)

Standard

I know I said I will be speaking about primers today, but I thought let me finish with the eye’s 1st.

If you know me you know I love FULL ON GLAM. But when I go out to the mall / walk etc the only thing I don’t put are my lashes. I normally put false lashes on occasions. Most of the times I get asked if I am going for a party or prom even without my lashes LOL 😉

So my favorite lashes are anything that are thick and full. That’s why this time when I went to IMATS I added Velour and Esqido Lashes (I am still to try them) and the another important thing is lash glue obviously or how will you stick your lashes on. I picked up a vegan lash glue.

Eyelashes – So far I have loved House of lashes, because of their thin band it easily bends to the shape of the eye. Their different style’s look so fierce but they are wearable and wont make you look super dramatic. If you have been following me you know my favorite ones are Temptress, Sirens and Tigress. I know by adding Velour and Esqido to the list my favorite’s will be growing soon. House of Lashes aka HOL speaks for them self. It is one of the favorite brands for most makeup artists.

True Glue had followed me long long time back on facebook and I always wanted to try it so this time they came to IMATS Vancouver and without thinking twice I got it. The reason being is they are super natural or vegan you can say. It don’t smell like fish tho it takes little longer to get tacky but it stays put and doesn’t budge coz it doesn’t irritates the eye. I used to use Duo lash glue in dark. It smells horrible and my eyes would always water (because of Latex).

Why True glue you will ask me, its because of their ingredients such as chamomile, rosewater and biotin True Glue is actually beneficial for your skin and natural lashes! True glue is the first adhesive of its kind, it’s made from completely all natural ingredients that are actually good for your skin and lash growth. Dermatologist tested, latex free and not tested on animals. You wouldn’t knowingly eat harmful toxins, so stop ingesting them!

I feel every girl should try false lashes once in their life. I used to be like no ways am I going to wear lashes its so unnatural. But after I did, I saw my self in the mirror and said where have you been my whole life *shocked eyes*. It brings the whole look together.

So if you have ever thought of wearing falsies but had 2nd thoughts. Trust me think no more try it and you will be amazed 🙂

PS- I am not paid to do this review. But again I would like to thank True glue for featuring me on their instagram

Tomorrow for sure I will be speaking about primers. ❤

Buying Cosmetics Online

Standard

I’m sure all of you must have bought something or the other online. But some may think if its safe or not or is it just hyped for no reason.

I have personally bought some makeup online as it wasn’t available in Dubai and the major brands which are used by a lot of Makeup artist or regular people are from USA , Canada , UK.

I first started by giving Ebay a try, and it really worked well as you could shop by pay pall (which helps safe online shopping). Then I started experimenting on other sites and it worked really well too. (I will post some of my favorite sites at the end of this post)

When I post my makeup photo’s  I use most of the products I have bought from these sites and I do get questions asking to why don’t I put the details of products which are available in Dubai? To be honest the price I get online + the shipping is still cheaper than buying an eyeshadow palette, lipstick, blush etc from MAC and if you are not a Makeup Artist you do not get MAC pro discount. (During that time I was not certified as a makeup artist, so I found good cosmetics but cheaper on the pocket).

So I hope I have answered your questions. But if you still have any more do let me know and I will be happy to answer them.

As promised few of my favorite sites I love to shop from.

1) http://www.thebodyneeds2.com (This was the first site I ever bought from as they sell sample size products which you can test and if you like it can go an buy those full size products from store)

2) http://limecrime.com/ (Super Pigment lipsticks)

3) http://morphebrushes.com/ (Their eyeshadow palettes are super super pigmented and amazing, their makeup brushes as so affordable and similar to MAC)

4) http://houseoflashes.com/ (Amazing affordable lashes for all eye types)

5) http://www.shophudabeauty.com/  ( if you are looking for something local for lashes )

6) http://anastasiabeverlyhills.com/ (For all your eyebrow / contouring needs. Now they have amazing eyeshadow palettes + lipsticks)

7) http://www.alshop.com/health-beauty/make-up (Another amazing local online site,If you don’t have a credit card and would still like to buy the best cosmetics you have Alshop which allows you to pay by cash)

I hope this helps.

Till next time
