Lashes by Lash Flawless

 

 

Hello lovelies. Today I want to talk about false lashes. Have you worn them? Have you gotten discouraged and given up on trying to apply them?

Today I am showcasing my favourite lash brand Lash Flawless use code Bellamj to save 10% on your order.

Why I like these lashes:

  • They are cruelty free
  • They are mink lashes
  • They are Gorgeous
  • They are easy to apply
  • They last longer than synthetic lashes
  • They are light weight and can be worn all day
  • They have a thin Cotten band

What is the difference between mink and synthetic. Synthetic lashes tend to be heavy and have a thicker band. They can feel uncomfortable on your eyes and the band can cause irritation. Mink lashes are light weight and are have a thin band.

How to apply:

 


Tips:

  • First trim lashes to fit your eyes (small sections at a time)
  • Apply a thin layer of glue
  • Allow the glue to get tacky
  • Apply in the middle of lash line then secure outer corner then inner corner

I love lashes and I wear them almost everyday. I have worn both synthetic and mink lashes. Hands down Lash Flawless are my favorite mink lashes.

Winged Eyeliner…Tape It


Look at that wing! How do I get wings so sharp they could cut? Watch the video 😉

 

 

Hello loves. Do you struggle with winged liner? I did….most of the time my wings were lopsided or just disastrous!

I watched multiple videos and I tried using pencil liner, felt tip liner and liquid liner with no avail.

I stumbled across a tip awhile back that using tape helps with making a beautiful wing.  Tape has become my new friend. It definitely helps provide te perfect boundary and guide for your winged liner. So I decided to make a video to share with you on how I use tapefor my winged eyeliner.

As you can see it is quite simple. The Brush I am using to apply the eyeliner is by SimpleGlamGirls these oval brushes have made a world of difference in my makeup application. Use my code bellamj74 to receive 20% off your purchase.

Elf Haul


Hello Beauties. During the week of Black Friday Elf Cosmetics had some fabulous sales with free international shipping. I had to take advantage.

I had just recently tried Elf Cosmetics primer and was impressed with the quality to be so reasonably priced. The only thing I have found is it has an odd odour, but that just may be me because my sense of smell is extremely sensitive. Have any of you beaties found the smell odd?

Since I have been enjoying the primer I decided to give some of their other products a try.

The Packaging:

Elf definitely has the packaging down. It is simple but good quality. On the large eyeshadow palette the packaging is not flimsy (I was expecting a thin plastic package)

The Beautifully Bare all over Face Palette packaging is perfect. It is sleek and travel ready. Slip it into your makeup bag and your ready to go.

The Quality:

I was expecting the quality of the products to be so so. I wasn’t expecting the eyeshadows pigment to be very good and was expecting it to be muted. Well I was in for a pleasant surprise. The colours are beautiful and last. No reaply needed.


I also purchased the baked eyeshadow palette and swatches the colours so you could see how lovely they are. The top row is lighter colours which are perfect for base and highlight. The bottom row has vivid colours that are gorgeous for your crease and under eye.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you have been wanting to try Elf cosmetics but concerned about the quality, I say give them a try!

Have a fabulous day beauties and I will be posting some looks I created using some of the elf products in a future post.

The Balm and Essence Cosmetics


Hello Beauties ❤️ I am sorry I have been MIA. As mentioned in an earlier post I received some pretty exciting products in my Ipsy October GlamBag. I have had the chance to create an eye look with 2 of the products and I am very pleased with them.


The first product is The Balm Cosmetics Hot Mama Blush. Yes I said blush, but this product is multi use! Two product for the price of one, who doesn’t like that!

The colour is quite nice. It is a pink/peach with a hint of highlight to give your cheeks a glow or your eyes a touch of shimmer. With outstanding pigment Hot Mama last all day. I love that this product is powerful enough to stay but light enough to not crease on the lids.

The second product is Essence Superfine Waterproof Eyeliner.

This is a lovely precision eyeliner. It allows you to create perfect cat eye/winged eye looks. It has a wonderful fine tip and it is waterproof! The price is very reasonable as well at $2.99 this is a must have in your beauty vault.

I hope you enjoyed this post loves! You can follow me on Instagram for makeup looks.

Line with Ease *Review of Vasanti Waterline Eyeliner

IMG_5495

Hello Beauties, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. What better way to start the week than with a review of a wonderful product! I received Vasanti Waterline Eyeliner in my Ipsy June GlamBag and I am excited to be able to review this product for you. First let me start by saying not all liners are the same. Over the years I have tried from expensive to very budget friendly. There are good and not so good in both categories. When purchasing an eyeliner I like to go for one that is creamy and glides on smoothly. Recently I have been using liquid liner due to the fact of its application. I have to be careful with pencil type liners because as we mature the skin around our eyes tend to be more sensitive. With that being said let’s get to the review.

IMG_5490

What are the things I like about Vasanti Waterline Eyeliner.

  • It goes on creamy
  • It is a matte finish
  • No need for a sharpener just twist
  • Intense color
  • Easy application
  • Safe for sensitive eye areas

When applying the eyeliner it goes on like a dream. I did not have an issue with it smudging. It works wonderfully for thin lines. It is long lasting with out smearing or wearing off.

The only thing is with any pencil eyeliner it doesn’t keep a sharp point so you do have to sharpen especially if you are wanting precision wings. I don’t mind that little detail when it is such a wonderful product to work with.

Here is what Vasanti has to say about thier product:

  • Gives you a defined, natural look that makes lashes appear fuller and longer while brightening your eyes for a youthful but polished gaze
  • Uses a creamy, easy glide formula that offers one-stroke color and a velvety matte finish that lasts all day on the wet rims of your eyes
  • Safe to use on delicate eye areas
  • Paraben free
  • Vegan friendly
  • Dermatologist and Ophthalmologist tested and approved
  • Made in Germany
  • Never tested on animals

*I love the fact it is tested and approved by Dermatologist and Ophthalmologist, paraben free and never tested on animals.

How do you accomplish a fuller and longer lash look? Make sure your liner has a sharp point, and line the eye with a thin line. This will give your lashes a longer fuller look.

Vasanti has a full line of beauty products. Take some time and check them out. For my Canadian viewers Shoppers Drug Mart and Rexall carry Vasanti. You can also check their website out, just click –> Vasanti

Fallen Leaves * Review of City Color Eyeshadow Trio*

IMG_4193

Hello all of you stunning beauties! I hope your week is going wonderfully, it has been a beautiful week and I have been enjoying the warmer weather.

Today I am going to review City Color Eyeshadow Trio in Fallen Leaves. I received this eyeshadow trio in a previous Ipsy GlamBag. To be honest when I first received it I wasn’t overly excited about it. I thought ok hmmm fall colours, not something I am interested in at this moment, but I decided to try them out. Don’t let the name fool you this trio is wonderful for all seasons.

I am so glad I didn’t wait till cooler weather to experiment with this eyeshadow trio. The brown in this trio is stunning.  It has a shimmery coppery affect, quite lovely. The colours complement each other wonderfully and look amazing on blue eyes. I cannot say how they look on other eye colours because my eyes are blue.

IMG_4195

The pigmentation is very nice and it is long lasting. One application is all you need. At $5.00 this eyeshadow is budget friendly and is an absolute beauty bargain!  They offer two shade selections in this eyeshadow trio: Fallen Leaves and Blooming Flowers.

Here is what the company states:

City Color Eyeshadow Trio features three complimentary shades in one travel-friendly palette.

Available in limited quantities, these exclusive palettes are only available to subscribers of the ipsy GlamBag for January 2016 and directly from CityColorCosmetics.com. Collect both palettes for every day wear!

I agree with what the company has said. The packaging is compact so it can be added to your carry along makeup bag for when you are on the go, and it seals nicely so no worries about it opening.

The colors are complementary and can be used for everyday wear.

You can view this shadow along with the whole line of products at City Color Cosmetics

To join Ipsy 

All in all this trio is a beauty YAY! Lets keep in touch on social media, you can follow me on Instagram and Twitter

I hope you enjoyed this post. Have a wonderful rest of the week.

Wings so sharp they could Cut! *Makeup Review*



Today I decided to try Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Angle Pure Pigment Gel Liner in Sapphire.

First I like how it has the screw on lid! I am constantly loosing lids to my eyeliners, especially in my purse! There is nothing worse than eyeliner or lip liner marks in your purse. Next I like that it has a soft rubber tip, this allows for a precision winged/cat eye! It has a twist knob at the bottom to allow more gel, *do not over twist. You want the gel just at the tip not extending past the tip.

Color….I love the color. It is an amazing blue. Quite beautiful actually. It would pair beautifully with neutral shades of eyeshadow or it would rock with bolder shades.

Application…at first it was a bit clumpy, but I think it was due to it being the first time used, or it may have been me since it was my first time using this type of liner. Once I became used to the flow of the tip I was winging my eyes sharp enough to cut lol.


All in all I say YAY to the gel liner with its wonderful soft rubber tip applicator. I will definitely be adding more to my makeup vault!
