If you have been following my blog, you would know how much I lurrrrrv Ardell lashes! Not only do they come in all sorts of styles, they are so painless to apply and work just as well as MAC and Shu Uemura. They are also super durable (a pair can last me at least 2 weeks) and only retail from $4 to $6 for a pair. Now that’s what I call a steal!

Below are some of the lashes that I have tried and recommend:

Because of its £3.50 (~$7) price tag and the tacky-looking display, I swear I must have walked past Concealer by Barbara Daly for Tesco (£3.50) at least a million times without even noticing its existence. Thank God I read the last issue of Marie Claire in which a beauty editor RAVED about this because believe it or not, this is definitely one of the best and cheapest concealers out there!

Not only do makeup artists and models list eyelash curlers as one of their must-haves, they are so huge in Asia that almost every single girl that I know, even those who do not wear makeup, owns one! So here are some reviews of the eyelash curlers that I have.

MAC Full Lash Curler ($11)
I had pretty high expectations of this but when I finally got it, I had to say it was a huge disappointment. Not only did the curve not fit my eye but it did absolutely NOTHING for me! It was simply no different from those $2-3 plastic eyelash curlers you could get at the drugstore and my lashes were hardly curled. Sorry MAC, I worship all of your eye products and brushes but this is not doing it for me.

Week Two
I have been using this religiously for two weeks now – twice a day on my thigh area and once on my face every other day – and half of the 60ml bottle is almost gone. So far my skin has gotten smoother and is definitely less dry. My stretch marks have also faded slightly and my thigh area just feels nicer and a lot smoother. I have also tried applying this on a zit on my forehead (yes I do get them too!) and even though I hardly scar when I get zits, this seemed to help it heal faster. I will continue using this and will update in a month.
