Today’s impulse buy!! A hit or miss?
So I saw these today at work and I just couldn’t help myself! I’m not a huge makeup person, and definitely NOT a fake eyelash person. But today, I saw these magnetic lashes and thought “well what the heck?”. As soon as I got home I tried them on! Well, on my hand first lol. The eyeliner is a very smooth liquid formula that was actually super easy to apply! (I’m not good at eyeliner but it was very easy to use in one swipe). The magnets work surprisingly well. They come off easily if you pull on them, but they stay pretty firm when you shake them around and blink, so I’m satisfied! They do feel a bit heavy on the eyes compared to normal false lashes, but the feeling went away very quickly for me. The only downside I have is how hard the eyeliner is to get off. I had the liner on my hand around 40-45 minutes and it was next to impossible to try and take off. I started with some oil to break it up and it barely did anything, so I just washed my hands with some anti bacterial soap to call it a day and a little more came off as I dried them off. So if you use this, make sure you have an amazing makeup remover!!! Overall, I LOVE the lashes, LIKE the liner. I just gotta spruce up my liner skills and maybe try a better makeup remover!

Tik tok #beautyhack - false lashes
This hack was originally posted by @itsmyrayeraye who I have been following since her YouTube days. I remember her mentioning this trick before but saw her tik tok and followed along with her video. It was actually a pretty simple hack and made applying my lashes a lot easier and quick. I’m probably going to apply my lashes this way moving forward as long as I don’t lose any of my own eyelashes in the process 😅 all you need are lash glue with a brush tip, a mirror and lashes.

Finally found the best eyeliner brush in my life!
Eyeliner is an important part for eye makeup. It is the perfect instrument to reshape our eyes. Whether it’s a cat eye, winged eyeliner or eyeshadow eyeliner, it makes your eyes look bigger and prettier. My makeup can’t go without eyeliner. I almost wear eyeliner everyday. So I’ve tried a lot of eyeliner products, include many eyeliner brushes. Finally I found this perfect eyeliner brush I’ve ever used! It is the MAC #209 eyeliner brush. Highly recommend it to you all. I have always had a good impression of the mac brand. I think it is a professional makeup brand that provides quality makeup products. One day when I was shopping at MAC, looking for makeup brushes, a sales saw my delicate eyeliner, so she recommended this eyeliner brush to me very enthusiastically. She said that this fine tipped brush is capable of drawing precise even eyeliner and has firm strokes. I immediately fell in love with this brush after she gave me a try. It’s just like what she described! So I bought it. It costs $21, not cheap but also not that expensive comparing to other eyeliner brushes from designer brands. If you’re an eyeliner newbie, and you think it is unaffordable, you’d better choose eyeliner pencil. But if you’re adept at makeup, I believe this brush worth buying! Since I own this eyeliner brush, 90% of my eyeliner is done by it. The structure of this brush comprises of a wooden handle, nickel plated brass ferrules, and a synthetic fiber brush. It never shed or lost its shape even I wash it frequently. Its length is very easy to handle, and is easy to control when lining the eyes with this firm strokes but smooth feeling. It has thin bristles that provides a precise and clean finish. Applying the liner below the eyes is also very convenient with this brush. If you want a precise application of your regular eye liner this is the product for you!

Glitter Primer Review 💋
I’ve been asking around “what glue/primer are you using for your glitters??” for what seems like weeks!! I finally got my hands on this NYX - Glitter Primer and I absolutely love it after only two uses!! 🗣It sold me during this application👆🏾👆🏾👆🏾 I used their ,NYX - Vivid Brights Eyeliner in vivid halo, topped it off with a matching yellow shadow, I then added black liquid liner underneath. After it dried, I proceeded with the glitter primer. When I tell y’all not a lick of my makeup came off, that’s what I mean. The best way I can describe it is, It goes on as a smooth over coat. Period. 🗣NO SMEARS. I’m happy I purchased this product. You should too if you haven’t.

🚨 BLACK OWNED BUSINESS ALERT 🚨 I sucked at putting on lashes for years. No matter how many tutorials,tips, different lashes or glue I used. I was told about this company through an instagram post. Opulence MD Beauty is a company owned by a black female eye surgeon. All of the lashes are magnetic, and the prices vary. Also you will have to purchase the magnetic adhesive separately. Below are pics The first pair I purchased were called the “heiress”. Ordered them right after my birthday(6-27) and I got them 3 days before my trip to Chicago (July 17). Wore them, and fell in love with how easy they applied. When I came back I found out Opulence had a sale: get the freedom lashes for free,just pay 11.00 for shipping and handling which was cool. I received my lashes 10 days later. My review: 9.5 out of 10 Why only 9.5? 1) Because the heiress lashes only have 3 magnets. Meanwhile the freedom lashes has 5. Better coverage if you ask me. 2) The adhesive. The pic with my hand shows the adhesives. The top one is the original one I purchased with the first lashes(heiress). The middle is the second one I was given along with the freedom lashes. Personally love the second one. It has better grip. The third stripe is my elf pen eyeliner with the second adhesive. Both of them work very well together. Tried this with both pairs of lashes and both adhere much better with the second and third stripe. But this is all my opinion, and experience with the company. All of the cases the lashes come in have a magnetic strip to re-magnetize them and help keep their shape. One more thing. I put in the wrong address for the second pair. Emailed the company the mistake and they fixed the problem with no questions. Please try them out. I highly recommend them. Follow them on instagram: @opulentlashlife Sorry for the long review.
holographic glitter tutorial ✨🌌
hello everyone! here is a holographic glitter tutorial featuring the nyx glitter brilliants! this look is so enchanting and iridescent ✨✨ let me know what you think and dont forget to follow and share! for the brown eyeshadow, i used MORPHE - 35O3 Fierce By Nature Artistry Palette whats cool about this rainbow and silver glitter is that you can actually use any color with it, but i think it pops out the most with neutral tones! another color may be too distracting ✨ for the glitter glue, i used NYX - Glitter Primer this primer is really great for loose, pressed, and glitter gels, as it helps hold the product to the eye amd prevent fallout! a little goes a long way❤️ for the actual glitter, i used NYX - NYX Metallic Glitter in the shade “star”. this glitter is magical! and paired with the primer it has very little fallout! it is literally rainbow in real life! the mascara is L'ORÉAL - Voluminous Original Mascara as always. i used to rate it four stars, but its taken a place in my heart, as ive neber found another mascara i like quite as much❤️
