Still Glamorus Cosmetics Haul + Swatches;

A few posts ago, I told you guys about the Still Glamorus Cosmetics summer sale. I did purchase a few items after seeing A Brilliant Brunette & Kasey, the owner of SGC, posted a neutral tutorial using her pigments. I picked up 4 pigments, a foundation, & she included a free sample baggie.


The pigments I bought. Only $4 during the sale!
[From L to R]
Gold Locket, Vintage, Rich Girl, & Nude Beach.

Swatches:
[Top to Bottom]
Nude Beach, Rich Girl, Vintage, Gold Locket.

I am a neutral girl, so OF COURSE I got all colors I would wear everyday. I am def going to be purchasing some colorful shades in the future. One things about these pigments is that there is a TON of glitter. Hopefully I won`t have a bad experience with these as I`m not a huge glitter fan. Also, Kasey did a video showing how she presses these, so I may try that with these pigments. I will def be using these in some future FOTDs.
:]

Have you guys ever purchased from SGC?
If so, what are you fav shades?

Be sure to check out Still Glamorus Cosmetics' site.

How I Plop My Hairrr;

This blog is called Eyes, Lips, & Curls, right? Sadly, I`ve been neglecting the hair portion of my blog. Quite often I`ll get asked how do I style my curly hair. It's actually a really simple technique called plopping. I learned about this method on Long Hair Care Forum & after doing my research on YT, decided to try on my own. Here's a YT video I uploaded in June showing my method.

Since this video, I have started trying with different leave-ins & different gels. The EcoStyler gel really helps hold my hair down, however it can flake up. I`ve started using the IC Fantasia Gel but it doesn't "mold" my curls as good as the EcoStyler. Also, for the leave-in, I have since switched to the Mixed Silk by Silk Elements as it is more moisturizing to my hair than the other leave-in & also helps with defining my curls.

I hope you ladies enjoyed this video & hopefully I can get out of the habit of neglecting my curls. I should be uploading more hair videos & more blog posts in the near future.
Hope you ladies have a lovely Saturday!
:]

WnW FOTD;

Hi guyssss! So I decided to share my entry for Wet n Wild's twitter contest. I also wore this eye look twice this week as I loved it so much! Got a TON of compliments. I used the WnW Vanity & Lust Palettes to recreate this look, as well as the lipstick in 903C[Just Peachy].




I don`t like how this lip came out, so I switched it to Rimmel's Vintage Pink when I wore this again.

Products Used;
Eyes:
WnW Vanity Palette[Matte camel color on the lid]
WnW Lust Palette[Matte purple, beige shimmery color in my tearduct]
Sephora Liquid Liner in Black
Rimmel LondonSuper Lash Mascara
WnW Eyeliner in White[waterline]

Lips:
WnW Lipstick in 903C[Just Peachy]
NYX Lipliner in Natural
NYX MegaShine Gloss in Miami Babe

GlamourDoll Eyes Haul;

I placed an order for some GlamourDoll Eyes[GDE] & totally forgot about my purchase. If you are not familiar with GDE, they are a company owned by a lovely lady named Vee. GDE sells eyeshadow pigments in an array of colors, eye glitter, & glamour gloss. She has a YT channel & always uploads the latest news about new products. I believe she is now working on an eye primer too, which I cannot wait to try! Normally, unless there is a massive sale, I can order & Vee will have my order shipped out same or next day. She is just incredible!

With every order, Vee includes thank you/business cards, stickers, & samples.

I ordered the "Foil Me" which helps to make your shadows more vibrant & last longer. It also is supposed to help glitter stick to your lids. It comes in two different types of packaging, the tube[which I ordered] & the dropper. I actually would have preferred the dropped instead of the tube. I have used this a few times & it definately does make the pigments pop more.

Foil Me in the tube costs $5.25
I ordered 11 shadows, in sample jars, but 1 has gone missing. :/

[Top to Bottom, Left to Right]

All Nighter, What's My Name?, Lace Panties, Catwalk, DinoSpotz, Dirty Jeans, Fabulous, Immature, Family Secret, & Electric Lemonade.

I think my favorites of the bunch are DinoSpotz & Dirty Jeans.

Prices:

Sample Baggie $1.25

Sample Jar $2.50

Full Size Jar $6.00

I will certainly do swatches later if needed!

Have you guys purchased from GDE? Or have any shades you would love to try?

July Birchbox;

After seeing all of the goodies ladies got the last 2 months from Birchbox, I finally gave in & ordered for July. When BB added to their site what would be included in the July box, I was a little upset. It didn't look like items I`d be interested in. But now that I`ve gotten my box, I may have changed my mind! When I opened my package, this is what I saw:




The cover on the box is soooo freaking pretty! Inside of the box, included this letter & my goodies:


First thing I saw after I opened the tissue paper was an almond & apricot bar. Eww, I don`t like apricots, so I`ll have to give this away. :/


Ahava Mineral Hand Cream. This actually smells REALLY good. Can`t wait to use it!


Redken Shine Brilliance Spray. I loooove hair products, so I can`t wait to try this out!


&this cute little package which included....

Philosophy One-Step Facial Cleanser & Zoya Polish in Shay.


I probably will try BB one more time before I decide to keep or drop the program. I`m not happy with that fruit bar thing. But everything else, I can`t wait to try.
Did you ladies get this month`s Birchbox? How do you all feel about what you got?

Thanks for stopping by. :]

KKCenterHK Lash Review;

Last month I was contact by a company called KKCenterHK to do a possible review. I did do some research & checked out other reviews before I agreed to do so. I found out they sell TONS of lashes, eyeshadow palettes, nails, & even wigs. After doing my research, I chose the ES Luxuriant False Eyelases in the style# A166. These were mailed to me one June 20th & I recieved them June 29th. Not to bad considering they came from HK. Packaging was pretty good, they made sure to add lots of bubble wrap so my lashes arrived safely. I have worn these 3 times & am pretty happy with me selection, however, I do wish I had chosen lashes more natural looking for everyday use. Because these are so dramatic, I choose to only wear liner when I wear these lashes.

My lashes came packaged as you see below. [I did not realize I had the lashes upside down, oops. Lol.]


My bare lashes with top liner only.


Close up of the lashes.

Pros;

-Affordable[Prices vary, these were 10 for $12.50]

-Can be reused several times.

-Easy to apply.


Cons;

-IMO, these particular pair are a little TOO dramatic for everyday wear.

-I wish these had an invisible band instead of black.

-Glue is not included with the lashes.

My thoughts;


Overall I am happy with the lashes. These particular lashes are great for going out for the night. They will stay in place & last a while. I wore mines for about 3-6 hours. I definately will be purchasing some natural lashes from KKCenterHK soon. I`ve been eyeing the criss cross ones too! :D


Have you guys ever purchased from this company? If so, what are your thoughts their products?

Hope you ladies have a greatttt Friday! :]
