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 Studio Face It Cream Foundation // First Impression

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re all well its been a busy busy week for me , I worked 7 days in a row all 8 hour shifts and late nights , so its nice to have a day off to write a little blog post. This weekend it was my sisters 18th birthday and I was in search for a really good foundation since I wanted to invest in something that was going to make my skin look amazing for the night and also last throughout the night. I decided to takea  trip into Derry and go to the Paddy McGurgan makeup pro store and check out what they had to offer in foundations.

I have quite dry skin so I knew I wanted to try something that wasn’t going to cling to any dry spots or make my skin look worse than it was. I opted for the Makeup Studio Face It Cream Foundation in light beige since it offered that dewy glow to my face but also promised to stay put for those long hours of partying.

The foundation comes in a little pot ( which is super cute and different to what I was used to ) and you’re able to attach any other colours you have together and stack them up! ( which I also found really cool for the aspring makeup artist who needs different colours in their kit) The foundation cost £24.50 which came out at around 29 for me.

I applied my foundation with the real techniques buffing brush , it was recommended to use a duo fibre brush for this foundation but I found I didn’t have much control over it , so decided to change the brush I used and it worked a treat. The girl who colour matched me also said that the foundation would easily last you 6 months since you really don’t need to use all that much to get a full coverage look, and she was totally right!

The foundation applied evenly and naturally it literally looked just like my skin. I was so pleased with this foundation since it really did do what it promised. The foundation lasted all night even after all the dancing and drinking that we did!

I hope you liked this little post , have you tried this product of heard of it? I would love to hear your thoughts below in the comments
