Brows -Ardell -Brow Defining Powder - Mink Brown

Hahahha! Thought I was the only one who used this to contour. I use it on my nose and cheeks. Just perfect!! Packaging has fallen apart. Had to repress it twice but I refuse to let the last bits of shattered powder go as I can no longer find it in store. I like that it has no red in it, it’s a neutral brown. I sometimes use it wet to do my eyebrows when I’m not in the mood to use my pomade and it’s very nice but I prefer a glossy finish. I will say when I use it on my brows the effect is very natural. For reference I’m nc50 with yellow undertones and jet black hair. Love it and will repurchase when I find it.


Brows -Ardell -Brow Building Fiber Gel

This is probably my new HG eye brow gel. I have very thin eye brows but for some reason, most eye brow gels won't hold them in place throughout the day. I didn't find the ABH brow gel all that great, the milani fiber brow gel did almost nothing for my brows, and the only one that I really liked was the L'oreal Brow Plumper gel (although it kind of made my eye brows a bit crunchy AND they aren't cruelty free, but they held my brows in place all day). This stuff is amazing. I can't find it anywhere in stores in Canada so I have to get it online, but I read rave reviews about most of Ardell's brow products and I decided to give it a shot. Amazing. Lasted all day, really defined and bushed up my very sparse brows and it doesn't feel crunchy. I like the wand as the applicator is small enough for me to really get in there but not too small that it takes forever to do. I use this over filled in brows (pomade or brow pencil) to keep them in place and lasting all day (makeup likes to disappear on my face). I have yet to try it on it's own, but I think it works well enough that it would also look good on more natural days. Fair warning though, I got medium brown and I almost thought they packaged the wrong colour in the tube. It looks gray when you pull out the wand and dries down almost to a soft black. I have black hair so it works completely fine on me but just make sure you take a look at the swatches before purchasing (the label colour looks deceiving too). I think it comes in 4 shades: taupe, medium brown, dark brown, and soft black. GO CHECK IT OUT!

Lash Treatments -Ardell -Brow & Lash Growth Accelerator Treatment Gel

This stuff actually works! (in awe!!!)
After four months of •moderate• use;
Upper lashes- growth & thickness
Lower lashes- dramatic growth
Eyebrows- some growth
I use it in conjunction with organic cold-pressed Castor oil to boost up the effect.
Keep in mind - this isn't an over-night treatment, you have to be patient & use regularly, it's hair after all. :)
The price point is amazing due to the effectiveness of the product. Definitely going to repurchase it!
*One month later update: my brows, upper & lower lashes has grow like crazy with a daily use!! Yayyy!! 😀

These are very beautiful, full but natural looking lashes. They are easy to apply and easy to reuse for a novice like me. They aren't super long so I can wear them comfortably with my glasses. THey also don't add any vignetting to my sight.

These are very affordable and you can buy them in multipacks from the drugstore.

Eyes -Ardell -Double Wispies Lashes

on 9/22/2017 1:18:00 AM

To say these Double Wispies are my go to lash is an understatement... this is literally almost the only lash I wear now. They are my daily lash. I'm beyond OBSESSED. They are full and sexy and gorgeous but nothing too crazy. I just adore everything about these lashes. They fit my eyes perfectly so I don't have to cut them, which is another plus. The band is so thin they look stunning with or without eyeliner. These Double Wispies compliment a natural or glam look. I can reuse them multiple times. They aren't uncomfortable, and they stay on all day with my Duo Brush On Adhesive. I couldn't ask for more... they are beautiful. I highly, highly recommend. I've repurchased so many times. And I will not stop.

Hair -Ardell -Red Gold Color Corrector

No just no. They have DEFINITELY changed the formula of this in the last few years. It used to turn your dye/bleach/conditioner whatever PURPLE - the color that actually knocks out the yellow. So imagine my surprise when a bleach session left my hair orange and I used my failsafe L'Oréal preference high lift ash blonde to cure it, my fatal mistake dumping in a bunch of this that I got in the bottle, and it turned HOT PINK. Against my gut, they must know what they're doing I said, and I wasn't about to buy more dye at 11:30 pm (although I've been known to do so), I applied and left on for 50 min. To add extreme insult to injury, not only did my hair not go ashier, IT TURNED PINK. I am soooo mad. I bought it so long ago no one at Sallys would have any record. I'm considering contacting the manufacturer as I simply cannot be the only one this has happened to. Save your money and buy wella 050 cooling violet additive to add a few capfuls for very ashy tones. It WORKS. Heck, NOTHING works better!!! I sit here with shimmer lights conditioner thickly coating my hair to try for some damage control :/

Brows -Ardell -brow pomade

on 8/9/2017 11:32:00 PM

The brush end is good. But for spoolie is barely hanging on. So one lippie off for that. This is a nice soft moussey brow pomade more like MAC fluidline for brows than ABH. It's easy to work with and knit foo expensive at Kroger. #winning very similar to salon perfect Walmart brow pomade.

I use these everyday. They last a long time. Walgreens usually has them on sale. One of the things that makes them better than others is the fact that they are pliable and you are able to adhere them to your lash line easier. I definitely think that these are by far the best false lashes out there!

Eyes -Ardell -Demi Wispies - Black

My absolute favorite lashes thus far. The band is very thin and flexible making them super easy to pop on. I'm not the best at applying lashes and before these I would have to at least cut them in half which I wasn't a fan of. They are very comftorable. I don't even really feel them. I have zero issues with the ends popping up. They are about $3.50 USD per pair and you get roughy half a dozen applications per pair with daily care.


Eyes -Ardell -Demi Wispies - Black

I have to admit that Ardell’s falsies is what got me hooked on fake lashes. These aren’t the kinds of lashes that will last many wears, though. I can get up to 6 wears with each pair as long as I remove and clean them carefully. I think for budget brand lashes that are readily available in the US, Ardells are the ones to get. The band on the Ardells (for the most part) are thin, yet stay curved when you take them out of the package. It makes for an easy, comfortable application. I’ve hardly felt the need to pluck out any Ardell falsies before the end of the day because they’re THAT comfortable. This holds true for the Demi Wispies.

The Demi Wispies are my go to lashes. I really like how they can be used for either natural or slightly dramatic looks, which makes them so versatile for me. I think one thing for me to note is that I have large eyes but not a lot of lid space. Because of that, it’s been a challenge for me, personally, to find lashes that don’t touch my brows but are long enough to give the definition that I want. These fit the bill perfectly. I really like the style of the Demi Wispies for these reasons. Also, I feel that the cat eye shape (shorter on the inner corners, longest on the outer corners) is very flattering for my round-ish eyes. These lashes are fluttery, yet they give a good amount of volume without looking super fake or heavy. Needless to say, I can see why these are very popular lashes!

I’ve tried the different variations of the Demi Wispies, and I thought it’d be helpful to compare the OG Demi Wispies to the newer variations. Also, I am almost certain that the Demi Wispies in the multipacks and the ones labeled “Wispies” in red lettering are the exact same styles as one another.

Baby Demi Wispies – the actual lashes on these are shorter than the DWs, though they retain the same cut and band width as the DWs. I think this would be a great option for those with smaller eyes. I do think, for me, the lashes themselves were too “stumpy” that it just looked odd on me.

Studio Effects Demi Wispies – Still pretty similar to the DWs, but there is an added thickness and length to the outer corners. I like these as equally as the original DWs. This one is more for photoshoots and other occasions that call for a bunch of photos. IMO, they do veer on being too unnatural for a “normal” day.

Double Up Demi Wispies – Literally, it’s two of the original DWs fused together in one. The band is significantly thicker than the original DWs and the other variations, so this is the most uncomfortable pair of the DW variants. I’m not sure if I’ll get to wear these, maybe for a very smoky eye or a photoshoot. These are definitely the most dramatic pair that I own!

If you’re new to lashes, definitely give the Demi Wispies a shot. Hell, even if you’re a seasoned falsies wearer, try these if you haven’t already!

Eyes -Ardell -Individual Multipack

Ardell makes great - and super affordable - easy to find lash related products. Their individual lashes are terrific. Yes, there are more expensive options but if you just want a few sprigs for your outer corners? Ardell is the way to go. I like Medium best (Long are a bit too long for me.) Come in Black/Brown and Black.

Eyes -Ardell -Pro Lash Applicator

on 6/29/2017 3:19:00 PM

This little tool is great! No more having to awkwardly hold the eyelashes while trying to put glue on the strip and no more fighting to apply the eyelashes to your lash line, it's priced at about 5 dollars on eBay and that's not bad at all for something that works amazingly and saves so much time and makes putting your lashes on a pleasure! There are tutorials on YouTube on how to use it as well and it's so easy! Far easier than the way I've been doing it! Highly recommend this little gadget!

Misc Beauty Tools -Ardell -Fauxmink Invisiband Lashes

on 5/18/2017 9:23:00 PM

This was the last pack so I do not know if the Fauxmink come in different styles. There is no style number on the package. These are very natural and the invisiband is quite unobtrusive. The lashes are attached close together on the band which makes them less detectable than the clumpy spaced-out attachment style. They are feathery and reasonably natural-looking while still making a big difference in eye appearance. I got them 30% off for $5 at Walgreens. EDIT: I found the style number - 811.
