Reviews/hauls/FOTD to make up for lost times.... (PIC HEAVY)

Hi guys! I've been getting soooooo many messages about how come I'm not updating my blog as frequently as before... Well, you know, as a student, sometimes blog and YT come second when you have projects after projects (especially when you have a Bitchy McBitch in your group who thinks she knows EVERYTHING!). However, I do appreciate every single one of you for being patient with me and still come visit my blog. I'm also very thankful for all the comments congratulating me, I'm so lucky to have supportive readers like you. MUAHHHHHHHH to all of you!!!

Now the sappy stuff is out of the way, let's get started with the reviews and hauls.

First up, I'm introducing you to some awsome fake lashes. I know my fake lashes like a drug addict that knows her dope. Since I'm lacking in the naturally luscious lashes department, I've been trying to solve that problem by constantly looking for some amazing faux lashes.

I've tried MAC, Ardell, cheap-y Ebay ones, Red Cherry, No-name Korean brands, etc... Some of them work alright (MAC, Ebay, Korean brands), and some of them are great (Ardell and Red Cherry), but I just discovered something amazing.

REVLON Fantasy Lengths Fake Lashes. More specifically, styles in Minx, Intensifying, Defining, and Chic.

Intensifying


Chic


Defining


As you can tell, all of them are on the natural side. I don't want people to notice how gorgeous my fake lashes are, I want them to think how gorgeous my "REAL" lashes are. No one wants to look too made up taking a freakin' 4 page essay exam at 8:30am (I HATE YOU STUPID ASS EXAMS THAT ONLY HAVE 2 QUESTIONS SO IF YOU MISS ONE YOU FAIL!!!!).

Each package of lashes comes with its itsy bitsy glue and instructions on how to store/use the lashes.


Testing: Revlon Fantasy Lengths in Chic


Before: My natural lashes with mascara...not so luscious eh?




I like to wrap the lashes around my finger to give it more of a curve for better fit on my eyes.


Chic in action.... I love how it's so subtle yet glam at the same time





Where to get it?: Any drugstore that carry Revlon products. The lashes are usually located at the nail care/tools aisle.

Price: It varies from store to store. My Walmart has them for $4.95, but it's more expensive at Target/Walgreens, but they do have BOGOF sales.

Quality: They are amazing! The thin bands create that "These are my real lashes" illusion while the thicker ones (Minx) creat a double eyelid for monolid ppl like me (I wear Minx for that reason only, LOL! ). You can reuse them many times as long as you take care of them.

Overall: 4.5 out of 5. They are of great quality, but if you were me and like to collect things, it does get expensive after a while. LOL!

Last but not least, my recent hauls (more on the way. I HATE WAITING FOR MAILS, I need instant gratification!)

I LOVE CVS! This whole thing costed $32 something. All Sally Hansen stuff were BOGOF!


This is for all the annoying little wiskers I get, lol. They work REALLY well!


This foundation is causing all the rave on MUA, so I got some to try. They are $$$ for drugstore makeup, damn! $14? Are you for seriousness?


I had them. I loved them. I didn't know why I stopped buying them. Oh, that's right, I got some Lip Fusion and went broke.


This is PURE sex I tell ya!! Review coming soon. If you are reading this before sunday 4/5/09, run to your nearest CVS and grab some!! 4 for $9 instead of the Lip Fusion's 1 for $38!!


Ok, before this post gets too long, I will leave you with some funny/naughty faces!

"I kissed a girl and I liked it, the taste of her cherry chapstick....or Summer's Eve feminine wash." LMAO!!! No, I'm not gross.


I'm still a rock star! Haters can suck it!


I'm nice to my loving readers/viewers....


...but I still like to get funkay!!


Hope this post will be enough to tide you guys over for another 2 weekss, LOL!
Peace out,
Tao

ViviaN said...

I stumbled on your blog and I absolutely love, love, love your FOTDS and reviews! Mainly because my eyes are just like yours, and I do the whole eyeliner thing to actually give me eyes, and your EOTDs are such an inspiration to me.

Keep up the good work, I've bookmarked this site and you're gorgeous!

xoxo

Tao! Loving your eyebrows in these pics. Your facial structure also looks amazing.

Catherine said...

LOL, you're so cute Tao. =) If... I ever experiment with falsies, I think these are the first I'd try getting since you make them look so easy. I will hoever, for sure, let my falsie-wearing friend know about these. Thanks!

Also looking forward to the reviews on the Sally Hansen gloss. I'm always looking for moisturizing lipstuff. =)

cheryl said...

lol...u crack me up with your funny faces. i have a bunch of fake lashes i got from hong kong, but i'm not using them. does using falsies make your own natural lashes fall off?! or at least that's what i've heard.
