Shiseido Eyelash Curler Review

II have recently heard alot of raves going on about the Shu Uemura eyelash curler. I was in the New York City for the weekend and wanted to head to Sephora (they have a Sephora on every corner!) to pick up one. Since they are much cheaper there ($19 USD compared to $30 CAD). It around 9pm and was walking around near the Times Square and I finally found a Sephora. Unfortunately, they were out of the Shu Uemura eyelash curlers so I just picked up the closest thing to it, which is the Shiseido Eyelash Curler. I went online and saw many beauty gurus were bloging about the difference the two.  Since I've never had the chance to try the Shu Uemura Curler myself, I don't know its performance. However after trying otu the Shiseido curler, I loved it!!

The Package came with the curler itself and an extra replacement rubber band. the curler is flatter than most of the eyelash curlers which fits the Asian eyeshape really well. Another thing about the curler is that instead of plain metal coloured, its in black which gives a more of a professional tool feeling.

I usually wear false eyelashes since its really to hold a curl on my lashes. But with these curlers, they really curl my lashes! In these pictures, I have curled my lashes and have the Benefit Badgal Brown Mascara

Ofcourse, the curl doesn't give you the effect of false lashes (that's the mascara's job) but nonetheless, its a really good natural effect. Overall, I'm really happy with the performance of the eyelash curler =)

Benefit Badgal brown Mascara Review

I never bought any mascara in any shades other than black. But recently, I have received this mascara for my birthday and I decided to give it a try, and to be honest, I was impressed with the results. Moreover, I did not really try any more benefit products for 2 years now. The products describes itself as having deep brown mascara for mile-high lashes. The brown colour doesn't really show up on my lashes, as my lashes are really black, but you could somewhat see the colour in sunlight or any sort of bright lighting. As for the mile-high lashes, it did lengthen my lashes, but it doesn't hold a curl. As many of you guys know, I do have short asian lashes that goes straight down. The texture of this mascara feels really heavy and sticky, so if you brush too much of this on your lashes, it will look clumpy.

The left side doesn't have the mascara vs. the Right side has the mascara

both products has the mascara! Look how long these lashes are now. 

Overall, I would recommend this mascara to use for everyday wear, but it would be better if they can hold a curl + the lengthening that it already has.

Angelababy Inspired Magazine Cover Makeup Tutorial #3

I realized its been awhile since my last post. I've been meaning to do some few hauls, but I've never got around to it, since I've been so busy with school, with assignments, had my first midterm yesterday, but nevertheless, I finally got around to doing another tutorial. This time, using the same pink Majolica Majorca pink eyeshadow as the last tutorial. I think its a really pretty colour.
