MoxieLash Magnetic Lashes Round 2!

MoxieLash-old-lash-set-and-new-magnetic-lash-set
For me, it’s rare that I try a beauty product, report on it, maybe find some things that are not-so-great and have see the brand actually make improvements on it. And this is just the case when it came to MOXIELASH. I recently wrote this post after I bought and tried a pair out and while I like to think I was the sole catalyst to the changes, haha, I’m sure glad they seemed to have made the changes.

They actually liked my post on Instagram and DM’d me to see if they could send me some improvements they had made to the lash system. Oh course I said yes! And two weeks ago, a package arrived with the following:

  • Three different styles of lashes – Classy Lash, Sassy Lash, Flashy Lash
  • Liquid Magnetic Eyeliner
  • Cream Magnetic Liner
  • Pointed makeup brush

I’ve had a few weeks to try out each one and here are my thoughts.

MoxieLash Magnetic Eyeliner for Magnetic Lashes

MoxieLash-Magnetic-Eyeliner-and-Eyelashes
If there’s one thing I like to try, it’s innovative beauty accessories! Enter MOXIELASH. It’s a magnetic eye liner for magnetic lashes. Wow. I purchased the Sassy Bundle for $75 @ moxielash.com and it came with a small angled brush, the liner and one set of lashes.

Each lash has small magnets adhered (I’m guessing glued) to the band, about 5 on each band and the liner is able to attract the lash to stick to it.

Dermaflash 2.0 Luxe

Dermaflash-2.0-face-exfoliator
When I first heard of dermaplaning, I didn’t even know that I had had it done before. My eyebrow girl used to do it to my face once in a while when I had my eyebrows done and only when I tried the DERMAFLASH original back in 2016, did I put the name and the process together.

What It Is: a physical exfoliation procedure using a surgical scalpel to shave the skin’s surface, not only removing the peach fuzz, what’s also called vellus hair, but also the top-most layer of dead skin. It’s become quite common place and it’s a great way to safely remove hair and it makes the skin so soft and makeup look so perfect afterwards!

The Kami Pad

The-Kami-Pad-Anti-Wrinkle-Forehead-Pad-and-Neck-Pad
To me, these anti-aging pads seem like hooey, hocus pocus, a scam, but I am here to tell you that they aren’t. I’ve tried a few brands that make these medical-grade silicone pads for the chest and now and this is the latest.

Meet THE KAMI PAD. They were kind enough to send me their Anti-Wrinkle Forehead Pad and Wrinkle Recovery Neck Pad to try out and review. $24 each @ thekamipad.com.

When it comes to my forehead, I get Botox about twice a year and love it. The timing on these was perfect because I’m due for another treatment but my wallet isn’t letting me get it.  

Let’s break down the details of these:

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces the appearance of scars
  • Prevent new wrinkles from forming
  • Boosts collagen production
  • Hydrates and moisturizes
  • Eco-friendly
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Great alternative to injections and invasive wrinkle treatments

3 Ways to Turn Up Your Beauty Look

You have an event coming up and you want to find the perfect dress, the highest heels, a good blowout, and oh, what should you do with your makeup for it? While you decide, here are a few products that can add a nice touch to your look that you might not have thought about.

No matter what trait you are looking to show off, I have some suggestions that have totally worked for me below.

Votre-Vu-Silk-Stockings-and-NARS-Monoi-Glow
*LEGS*

Make legs look silky smooth – temps will be warming up soon so skirts will be getting shorter again. Give legs and extra extra with one of these. It makes you look like you are wearing stockings when you’re not. VOTRE VU Silk Stockings in Classic Bronze ($38/3.38oz @ votrevu.com) or NARS Monoi Body Glow I ($59/2.5oz @ narscosmetics.com, sephora.com).

Take My Face Off ... Huh?

Take-My-Face-Off-on-table
I am a true and trusted washcloth user. Most of mine are black because of makeup and I spend quite a bit on soft ones. I’ve tried those dry, use-this-cloth-to-remove-makeup before, and though they were ok, and thought these were that but they are not. I’m not a fan of these aforementioned ones as I feel like they pull and tug too much and I don’t like doing that around the eye area. However(it), these are NOT those that you just use raw, without any cleanser, or product, on them.

This is, TAKE MY FACE OFF and here’s the lowdown -

The Makeup Mitty ($38.50/3) – instead of using a makeup wipe or washcloth, these are meant for you to use for your whole face and is meant to be used with your favorite cleanser all over the face.

The Mitty Blackout ($42.50/4) – these are the eye makeup removers and a tad smaller than their sister above. These are to be used instead of wasteful cotton balls/wipes and these Mitty’s are probably even softer than cotton!

Trying Out Lashify

I couldn’t decide if I should even post this post about Lashify with all that went down recently between MannyMUA and the Founder of Lashify, even though I bought their kit a few weeks ago with the intention of reviewing them here. Yes, he didn’t use them correctly and the Founder publicly retaliated. Not cool on either side. Since people will probably be searching on what Lashify is, I hope this post will clearly explain the system. Like every product, it won’t be for everyone but there will be ones that it is for.

gos•sa•mer – a fine, filmy substance consisting of cobwebs spun by small spiders, which is seen especially in autumn.

Lashify-Control-Kit-inside
False lashes, lash extensions, magnetic lashes … the category is bigger than ever, and now there’s another way do lashes called LASHIFY! Since I’m all about trying a new way of doing something, I immediately bought them. Yes, they seem a tad pricey at first @ $125 but hear me out on this one.

What it is: a lash extension system made of Korean PBT silk, the clusters of lashes (called Gossamers) use a microflex technology, contain biotin, and won’t damage existing lashes. Can be worn up to 1 week.

Hello Schick Intition f.a.b.

Schick-Intuition-f.a.b.-razor-with-towel
I can hear it now – young girl starts work with Schick with the thought of, “I’m going to create a razor that shaves back and forth.” Years later her dream comes true, she’s promoted and everyone is happy. Yup, that day has come with the SCHICK Intuition f.a.b. Razor ($7.99 @ walgreens.com, target.com).

This razor is customized with their unique bi-directional blades where the top blades (3) shave up and the bottom blades (2) shave down. And this one seemed to do the job as it moved over the hills and valleys of my body. I reluctantly tried it in my armpit as this kind of movement is just not natural. It worked fine but was a little awkward. I’m sure as I use it more and get used to it, I’ll be able to do it quicker each time.

Now the big question is, will this catch on? Up until now we’ve all been accustomed to shaving in one direction as moving the razor back and forth would cause cuts. So can you train an old dog new tricks? Only time will tell with this one.

Is this something you want to try out?

A Great Way to Clean Your Brushes

Real-Techniques-Brush-Cleaning-Palette-in-box
Real-Techniques-Brush-Cleaning-Palette-box-back
I wrote about some REAL TECHNIQUES makeup brushes the other day on my site but I think the real star of their line has to be their Brush Cleaning Palette ($15 @ realtechniques.com, kohls.com, target.com). It’s made of silicone, and the part that holds the soap and water kind of looks like of like a soap dish in that the edges are raised up. On the bottom is a strap you slide your hand through to hold it. Then, just add some cleanser and a little water and scrub or work that brush along the textured dots and x’s on the surface and voila, clean brushes!

And I like that I’m not wasting cleanser like I normally do when just using my hands as the surface to work the product out of the bristles. The cup shape keeps it all in one place as you clean brushes. Highly recommended.

So did you make any beauty resolutions this year? I have a friend who proudly declared that 2017 would be the year she learned to apply false lashes! So how has she done? Well, I just checked with her before writing this post up and she hasn’t practiced that much. I’ve tried to tell her, there are all kinds of tools and tricks to help but in the end, it really just does take practice.
