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!!

Review: Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow and Perversion Mascara!

IMG_5348

Over the last week I’ve purchased Urban Decay’s Eyeshadow in Sellout, a nude/shimmer color that is absolutely stunning. I love it! It is highly pigmented, and lasts all day!

Insane color payout. A velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability. Urban Decay’s  mind-blowing formula delivers unmatched performance in a stunning array of shades. They created an Eyeshadow formula that will BLOW YOUR MIND. (And the packaging is amazing too!)

THE FORMULA
Soft, amazingly velvety texture
• Rich, dense and decadent color
• Smooth, uniform pigment distribution and blendability
• Long-lasting, crease-free wear

The secret to the new formula is their Pigment Infusion System™, a vehicle for color that holds tightly to pigment and gives the formula its glide. The proprietary blend of ingredients allows color to weave itself through the Eyeshadow formula. What does all that mean? Insane payout. Color that stays on your lids. Sparkle that doesn’t fall. And a velvety, suede-like smoothness and blendability.

This amazing technology works for every shade and finish. Have you ever had trouble blending a black or purple shade? How about a matte? Every Urban Decay shade goes on silky, blends easily and stays put. (It’s true!)

I paired that with a sample I’ve recently gotten from UD, their Perversion mascara. Boy do I wish I had more of this stuff! It is absolutely AMAZING! It goes on easily – and it makes my lashes look ridiculously long! Check out the final result of these two products together below!

Get bigger, blacker, badder lashes with our ultra-creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara. So intense you might need a safe word, Perversion glides on and gets you sexy in one stroke. (Yet it won’t quit until you say when.) It’s insane how black it is…the purest, deepest, most intense black color imaginable.

Perversion has a creamy, full-bodied texture that’s not too dry, not too wet. This allows just the right amount of “pull” so it glides through lashes. The result: incredible control for insane lashes. Go ahead and pile on coat after coat. Want to apply more before you go out at night? No problem. Even if it’s been all day since you applied, more Perversion always means more beautiful lashes. Their formula NEVER gets brittle or clumpy.

Perversion Mascara contains Hairdensyl, a complex blend of proteins and amino acids—including marine glycogen, known to stimulate lash growth. Honey extract provides deep nourishment, sea idrolized elastine stimulates the hair follicle, and marine collagen protects.

The twisted trim on the high-tech, volumizing brush latches on to each lash to separate and define; finally, a volumizing mascara with a clean, clump-free finish. It pulls through lashes smoothly and lays down a generous amount of product. No need to wiggle the wand or maneuver it at all different angles!

If you need to apply in public, you’ll look good holding Perversion. They emblazoned their gorgeous, highly metallized black tube with a big purple “Perversion” and our tagline: “Bigger. Blacker. Badder.”
