Ardell Demi Wispies // Review

image

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re all well! I’m just finished another week of work , and decided that I need to sit down and get back to writing on the blog! I thought today I would review the demi wispies by Ardell , this is the first lash of theirs that I have tried so I thought I would talk a little bit about it.

I got these lashes at the makeup pro store in Derry and they cost me around £6.99 , which isn’t cheap . I’m used to buying the sultry lashes in penneys at €1.50 so this sort of broke my heart a little when I seen the price but I really wanted to try them so thought I would take the plunge … for the sake of the blog ( haha ) I know theres a lot of more expensive lashes out there too , but I always thought of Ardell as affordable drugstore.

I’m so impressed by these lashes , I decided to get the demi wispies because I wanted a lash that I could wear everyday and not have the added drama that the original whispies have. I wore these lashes to my sisters 18th and they stayed on all night AND looked natural. I honestly do think I will go back and purchase the original wispies though to have them for nights where I do want a little something extra to add to an eye look.

The band was very easy to hide because it was so thin.I love thin bands because it doesn’t look TOO obvious that you’re wearing fake lashes. With or without liner the band is very easy to hide which is something I just loved about them. There’s nothing worse than having a thick band in my opinion , they look unnatural and sometimes can be quite uncomfortable.

They were easy to wear and easy to apply and felt comfortable all night which is surprsing for me since it takes a couple of wears for a pair of lashes to sit right or feel comfy on me. The only gripe I have with this product is that it doesn’t come with a little itty bitty glue tube. luckily I like to keep all my little tubes of glue that come with lashes , I  just feel like its a waste to buy lash glue when half the time the glue comes with the lash. Other than that little hiccup I love these lashes.

have you tried these lashes? let me know your thoughts in the comments below I’d love to hear your opinion on them.

Makeup Revolution Death by Chocolate Palette

image

Okay , so I was debating what my first come back post would be , and I decided since I got soooo much makeup revolution stuff for Christmas that I would start off with the death by chocolate palette,I can’t even describe how hard it was for me to get my hands on any of the items in this brand , it didn’t come to my superdrug until 2 weeks before christmas! ( first world problems)

Lets start with the obvious , this palette is meant to resemble the Too Faced chocolate bar palettes, but don’t be fooled , this particular palette is not a dupe for any of the Too Faced ones , They do have a salted caramel which is meant to resemble the Semi Sweet chocolate bar palette and a normal chocolate bar palette to resemble the original one.

When I look at the colours in this palette its almost like the original chocolate bar palette just a little bit darker, the colours in this palette are mostly cool toned , not something I would of picked up a few months ago , but I’m coming out of my comfort zone these days and I thought about experimenting , so if cool tones aren’t for you then you won’t like this palette!

The pigmentation! WOW! just WOW , I’ve never used any other drugstore brand that had pigmentation like this , the colours are so buttery and so easy to work with that my eye makeup looks like a dream! I have 2 other palettes from Makeup Revolution the Ultra flawless palette and the Run Boy Run palette and the pigmentations in the both of those are out of this world too!

The Scent , you either love it or hate it , some people online seem to think there is a chemical smell off of it? I honestly don’t get that I just get a really artificial chocolate smell , which doesn’t put me off it at all , in fact I don’t really care much for the smell

 

overall I’m so so pleased and happy with this product , its amazing and only cost     12 which is an absolute bargain , there’s not one negative thing I have to say about it , I was honestly blown away! I can’t wait to purchase more of their chocolate bar palettes in the future

hope you all enjoyed my little come back post , have you tried this product? let me know if you liked it in the comments below!
