Every once in awhile an amazing new beauty product comes along and the new Kat Von D palette is one of those. Since the day I opened this, I can’t get enough. Lack of sleep or allergy induced puffiness my face can still look sleek and flawless with the help of this amazing palette.

With the enclosed guide this palette makes contouring at home easy as pie. I love the different shades and am amazed how quick it can slim and brighten my face. I’m debating buying out the stock and hiding it in a safe. I don’t think I can live without it now!

Brushes usually don’t get me too excited I have always used my fingers to apply most of my makeup. Not fancy but I find it works well. But the Kat Von D Shade & Light Countour Brush is a brush worth my excitement. The brush is so soft and holds the makeup well without making a mess. Its so exceptionally soft it makes smooth and precise application a breeze.

What it is:
An exclusive dual-ended brush that is ergonomically designed with an angled end for contouring and a tapered dome end for highlighting—all encased within a sleek protective case.

What it does:
Experience the transformative power of contouring with this advanced multipurpose brush. Specially designed by Kat Von D to be paired with the Shade & Light Contour Palette, this brush’s powerful two-in-one design combines density of a contouring brush with the tapered accuracy of a highlighting brush to deliver ultimate precision and versatility. Glide the angled end along the hollows of your cheeks and temples for effortless sculpting; guide the tapered dome end along desired areas to enhance and illuminate features. Artfully constructed with super soft, white-tipped synthetic bristles on both ends, its gradient brush hairs expertly pick up and diffuse high-pigment powders for seamless blending. This ultimate contouring tool comes encased within a beautiful coffin-shaped case to keep it protected on the go.

Review: Cherry Blooms – Fiber Eyelash Extensions

IMG_5580

I was sent a sample of Cherry Blooms Fiber Eyelash Extensions to try out for myself. I read the reviews online, saw pictures of the results I should see, and was pretty excited to try them out!

I found the lashes to be very easy to put on – and look amazing. As far as eyelash extensions go – I found these insanely easy. I think the results are gorgeous – and my lashes have never looked longer!

There are only 3 simple steps! First – apply 20 coats (it’s not as much as it sounds) of the Transplanting Mascara Gel. Step 2 – apply the “Fibers”. Step 3 – is repeat step 1! That’s it!

Cherry Blooms Brush On Fiber Eyelash Extensions are lightweight and just as easy as applying normal mascara.

Kit includes 2 tubes
1 tube of transplantng mascara gel
1 tube of dry nylon black fiber
Brush on fibers give you false eyelash look
Cry proof, laugh proof, sweat proof
Easily washes off with warm water and cotton ball
Suitable for all ages, skin types and occasions

Here is how mine turned out. I think I’m going to play with them some more. I’m going to try them out a couple more times and see if I can’t get even LONGER lashes! Still – pretty long, eh? I can’t wait to try them again soon!!
