Eyes -Ardell -Magnetic Lashes - Double Wispies

Magnetic lashes have been a colossal disappointment so far, and these Ardell Double Wispies are no exception. These are $17 Canadian which is sooo expensive for lashes. I picked this style because it was the only style I could buy where I live in Canada.

They are tough to apply, even if you cut them down. It's so hard to place them close to your lash line in a way that looks natural. From a far away distance they look ok, but from any side angle, if you look down, they look so fake.

Because they are two strips of Wispies, they look so dark and full in a very unnatural way. I love a single Wispie lash, but these look like a joke!

I am hopeful that one day someone will invent magnetic lashes that are amazing and comfortable to wear, but we are not there yet. Stick with the glue, girls!

These are such great lashes! I always buy them in the 5-pack.

They are full and dramatic, but still natural looking. They are comfortable to wear with my glasses, and they are durable enough for me to reuse them.

I adore these lashes and would highly recommend!

i cant believe i found this at dollar tree, so i picked up like 10 of them i believe brow products are the most overpriced makeup products on the market, and $5 is probably the max id pay for a pencil now. (i have bought abh powders in the past but i was naive) i found taupe and medium brown shades at my dollar tree store and these 2 shades work for me. i like my brows a bit lighter bc its less maintenance, and my brows are on the slightly fuller side. this product works just fine for me, i will never again spend $ on a high end brow product.

Eyes -Ardell -Magnetic Lash Accent #001

First I tried the magnetic double demi wispies, not for me. I thought maybe these would be better. Nope. They look hideous. They need one extra section so that you don’t look like you have practically no lashes for the first quarter of your eye and then BAM full on lashes! I love the idea of these and they are truly comfortable, honestly, you don’t feel weighed down from the magnets at all. It’s literally the shape that is the problem. What they need to do is come out with a very natural, wispy style that is full band width but not overly heavy because wearing a top and bottom lash on the upper lash line can look drag queen fake (unless you are into that kind of thing, then by all means go for it!). For now, I will stick with my own lashes and hope they continue to release more styles so that I can land on one that works for me.

Eyes -Ardell -Magnetic Lashes - Double Demi Wispies

First pair vanished in my purse before i had the chance to apply them properly. Second one ,first real try, 30 minutes on and one eye was just perfect, I finally had figured it out! I am in my car and i am unbeatable, i am strong , i am fearless , i am one lash short.. what the heck happened?? I am there with a crazy beautifully lashed eye and i lost the other half for my other eye in my car. That’s a lost cause. Payday it is , Walmart here I come.

I got another pair and finally got to give them a try. I think i will be cutting them a bit because i have small eyes and they are a bit too large, and I never had fake eyelashes before so I am no used to have something else than whats attached to my eyes sitting on my lids. Practice makes perfect and really the quality is great. I will not buy a pair on amazon for 2$ because gurl them eyes are worth them extra bucks, I would be so proud explaining how i damaged my cornea but proudly saved 13$. Ardell is a no brainer as a choice, and its about practice.

Do I recommend? Hell yeah gurl, you won’t satisfy your inner beauty guru unless you try them, no matter how many reviews you read. They’re great.

I bought these and the accents. I hardly wear lashes because they never stay on right and I hate the idea that I might lose lashes. Some people say you don't, and I guess the glue matters, but every time I wear them, I have glue residue that I can't pick off and end up rubbing off lashes and having sticky eyes. So I was hoping this would be easier and better for me.

I didn't find them to be that affordable. They're about $15 without sales (which I definitely got a deal) but they had to be easier to use than glue for me to feel that's worth it. Well they're not, at all. I tried the accents first, and they're not perfect, but I like them. For some reason, my specific accents don't hold a curve on the right lashes. So that looks unnatural and you can't glue it down like you would with normal. Still, I like them enough. But these....these I couldn't get to line up right at all. The sales girl told me it took her an hour and she was just too frustrated to try again. I looked at reviews that were wary also but I had to see myself. I couldn't deal with it. I know there's a learning curve but I felt I had gotten the accents to work ok and didn't want to waste more time on the full ones, even though the look of demi whispies is one of my favorites. I didn't even get them on correctly once despite trying for a long time. I've heard of chopping the lashes into one magnet sections, but I never had luck doing that with glue and it would only add more time to the application so I didn't bother. That's something I'm more likely to do with glue, if ever. I ended up returning these and kept the accents.

For what it's worth though, I do still lose a few lashes with the accents even though I try to remove them carefully by sliding the magnets apart.

In an attempt to give an unbiased, objective review of these lashes I am giving this a rating of 3 lippies.

Pros:
1. Magnetic lashes, no need for glue, definitely a bonus
2. Lashes appear to be of good quality, not plasticky, do not shed
3. Despite having magnets, do not feel heavy (although I did not wear these for an extended length of time)
4. Affordable
5. Comes in different styles, this one is not really my cup of tea, very full, but if that’s what you are looking for, they will make an impact

Cons:
1. Hard to apply a full strip of magnetic lashes, the learning curve can be frustrating
2. This style is particularly “lash heavy” or rather full for my particular eye size and shape

While the pros outweighs the cons, this particular style did not work out for me. I am interested in trying the Accent option which may fit my eyes and look more appropriate on them. If you enjoy full lashes I’d recommend giving these a try though.

Brows -Ardell -Stroke A Brow Feathering Pen in Taupe

on 4/4/2018 3:31:00 PM

I have sparse brows (one more than the other due to scarring) I have to fill them in but I don't like the fake cartoon looking colored in brows Im seeing so much of lately. Not hating on anyone else that loves them it's just not for me. This liquid feathering pen is exactly what I was looking for. It's super fine tipped so that unlike a pencil you can make realistic hair strokes that blend in with your natural hairs. It lasts all day and doesn't t smudge, fade change colors or wipe off. It doesn't come off until I wash my face. I was unsure about the taupe color because I have dark brown hair and eyebrows but both Sally's near me were out of the medium brown shade. Taupe works great and is very natural looking, even in the inner and outer corners where there's more bare skin than hair. This is a cool color but doesn't go green as the day wears on like some others I've used and is dark enough to fill in without overpowering. It has a fine tipped brush applicator and needs to be stored tip down to keep the ink from settling to the bottom of the pen. If you don't store it upside down it will appear to have dried out. It can also dry a bit on the bristles so I wipe it off before each brow to make sure the ink flows well. I picked this up for $9.99 at Sally's so it's a great deal compared to high end pencils and powders that don't wear as well. I wish it was available in more stores and I'd like to try the medium brown shade but it never seems to be in stock.

Misc Beauty Tools -Ardell -LashTite Adhesive

I'm *ecstatic* that I managed to find this product again. It's been years of hunting and missing individual lashes.

Let me start by addressing negative reviews: guys. This stuff is called individual lash glue. It's not for strip lashes. No matter how "eh, why not" you feel, don't ever try this. It WILL rip out your lashes, because that's not the intended use.

This glue is made to last 2 weeks. I agree with other reviewers who say that's a stretch - I'd say it lasts a week. It's very easy to use (correctly). You pour it out (I honestly use aluminum foil), dip either a single to a triple individual lash into the glue, hold the tweezer up to eyelid and apply. Sometimes ya miss, sometimes you connect. Practice makes perfect. Fill in all the gaps by repeating this process (anticipate 30 minutes to do both eyes, more or less depending on practice level) - and you're good to go for a week.

This isn't for everyone. This isn't for strip lashes. But this IS for people who have a good chunk of time at one point in the week, less time the rest, and/or enjoy getting their makeup routine over with.

One more time for emphasis - NOT FOR STRIP LASHES. This is as close to superglue as you can get, and you really don't want to superglue strip lashes to your eyelids. Side note that I recommend the remover - it's still tough to use but it will help get off the stragglers that persist until the very end.

Misc Beauty Tools -Ardell -Naturals #172

This lash style is lush without being ridiculously fake. The style is a criss-cross and moderately long. The best characteristic is the band holds its perfect curve and the lashes only curve up on the tips. The only oddity is the lashes are a tiny bit shiny but some might like that.

These are a godsend for people that have sensitive eyes and can not use eyelash adhesives. There is a HUGE learning curve using this type of lash. I found if I cut the "lower" lash into 3 separate pieces, so much easier to get perfect application. Check Youtube out for videos. Tip make sure there is a tiny magnet for each section. Also make sure your tweezers or applicator isn't at the base of the lashes or the magnetic will stick to your tweezer. I love the accent style with my cat eye liner. Very dramatic. I can wear these all day, but I don't wear them daily (date night, special occasion, etc). Package says not to curl your own lashes first, but I find for best application curl your own lashes and coat with mascara. This will make your lashes a sturdier foundation so you can "sandwich" your own lashes in between these falsies. They initially feel a little odd due to magnets, but that passes quickly. Magnets are not visible against your lashline. Quality identical to other Ardell's lashes. Removal is a breeze, just pinch your fingers over the lash and slide. This will separate your magnets and not pull off any of your own lashes. As for storage, since I cut my lower lashes, I actually apply them back against the upper lash as not to mix up the right/left and inner/middle/outer pieces and just apply to the sticky dots on the packaging to keep them in proper shape.

Brows -Ardell -Brow Defining Palette

This powder is awful. You get a highlighter and three brow colors, medium chocolate brown, dark brown and for blonde's a light gray. The gray hue has low pigmentation not to mention the ridiculous color. The highlighter is also low pigment with sparkles. The wax pencil doesn't hold the brows in place the way a brow gel would and it makes a mess.
I'll stick with my Jordana duo powder for now.

Misc Beauty Tools -Ardell -Brush-On Lash Adhesive

So I bought this glue because I was not happy with the DUO clear-white glue. I love the applicator of the Ardell glue, I also found it that the glue did a great job with keep my false lashes on really well throughout the day. The biggest problem with this glue is and it’s very disappointment is that when I try to take it off it completely ruin my false lashes and it rip out my real lashes as well. I do use makeup remover/warm water to loosen the glue first but it just not good. I spend a lot of money on the false lash and expecting to use it more than once, but with this glue forget about it, your false lash will only be good for one time use ....
And when you try to take the glue off from the lashes it’s super hard and crusty.
I would rather stick to the DUO glue


Misc Beauty Tools -Ardell -Fauxmink Invisiband Lashes

I got a pair of Ardell Faux Mink #811 lashes from Walmart here in Canada for under $10. Usually, I buy the five packs, but I wanted to try these faux mink ones.

They are lovely on - very long and full and natural looking lashes, but they give a very glam look. They feel entirely different from regular Ardell lashes - less plastic, and the band even seems a bit thicker and more like a flexible fabric band? It is a bit harder to conceal than the standard Ardell lash bands.

They wore super comfortably, and I didn't need to trim them. Like all Ardell lashes application was a breeze and they wore comfortably for 12+ hours. They are easy to reuse and feel quite sturdy. I would certainly repurchase for another event or party.


Hair -Ardell -Red Gold Color Corrector

Honestly if I could rate this a zero I would. I had beautiful icy blonde hair. Had a little bit of yellow coming through in certain areas so I was told by a girl in Sally’s beauty supply to use this stuff. Now my hair is pink and I’ve tried just about everything to get the color out besides bleaching which is what I may have to do. This stuff is horrible and ruined my $300 dye job and now I’m going to have to pay another $300 to fix it. Take this off the market and do everyone a favor.
