Yellow, Pink, & Purple Eyeliner

Today I knew what I wanted to wear, but it took me a little longer to decide on my eye makeup. I knew I didn't want something dark or something with neutral colours either & I wanted to use a new eyeshadow palette that had a few pink & purple eyeshadows. Soon I remembered a rainbow eyeliner picture by Ronnie from Bows & Curtseys that I saw on Pinterest & thought I'd do an inspired look using the colours of my outfit instead.

I wish I saw her video or went back & looked at the picture before doing my makeup though because I would have done these things differently:
  • Applied my eyeliner in a thin line after applying the eyeshadows. I usually tend to apply my eyeliner thick because it suits me better so I applied my eyeliner like I usually do & then did the coloured eyeshadow liner after that.
  • Used the eyeshadows wet because using a white base was not enough to make the colours pop the way I wanted them to.
  • Made sure that the eyeshadow line was sharp on top since my eyeshadow liner looks like it's blended a bit with the lid colour.

No big deal though... this just means that I'll have to try this method again!

Rhinestone Nail Art

I rarely do my nails, but I was excited to try out these nail art rhinestones. I didn't know what designs to try, so here's what I came up with.

My favourite design is the mint green  nail polish with 2 strips of the purple rhinestones down the center. I chose to do this on my ring finger & I love how the purple stood out on the mint.
The red rhinestones all over one of my nails is an idea that I pictured would look better just on one an accent nail with the rest of my nails painted red, but I definitely didn't like it.
The other design that I wasn't a big fan of was the huge snowflake that I jazzed up with rhinestones.
The last design I tried was inspired by a string of colourful holiday lights.

I was given the opportunity to try these 12 colours 2mm rhinestones ($3.88) out from I've used them for makeup looks before as well. The one makeup look that I've posted on this blog is the Spunky Bright Magenta Look & I used the hot pink rhinestone in the inner corner for it. I really like the size of these rhinestones because they are great if you have short nails & for the inner corner/tear duct area of the eye as well. The colours are great too, but I wish they had dark green rhinestones instead of the pale green ones (besides the dark blue). 

I'm most likely going to use these for makeup more than I will for nails. You could also use them to decorate all sorts of things or for scrapbooking. I think I'm going to try that soon. For now I'm loving using these rhinestones.

Mums Anniversary Makeup

I did mums makeup for my parents' 24th anniversary & I thought I'd add a pic of her eye makeup. She tends to like more neutral looks, but I thought the blue suited her really well.

The shimmery blue eyeshadow is by BH Cosmetics.
The 3 other eyeshadows that I used are from the Urban Decay Naked palette: Sin, on the inner two-thirds of the lid; Buck, on the browbone; and Virgin, as a highlight under the brow & in the inner corner/tear duct area. Buck & Virgin showed up better in the smaller pic.
The lashes are e.l.f's dramatic lashes.

I can't wait to use that blue myself. It is such a gorgeous colour!

Spunky Bright Magenta Look

Recently I got 2 brushes & an eyeshadow from Furless, which is an Australian cosmetics company that carries 100% vegan & Halal friendly products. I think this is the first time I've heard a non Middle Eastern cosmetics company use the word Halal, so bravo, Furless!

The 2 brushes that I tried are the Pencil/Crease brush & the Precision Bent Eyeliner brush from their Bamboo Eco makeup brushes line.

10.95 AUD
  • Very dense & tapered.
  • Picks up a lot of product so it's good if you're trying to pack on the colour.
  • Doesn't shed.
  • A little big to use on your lower lash line (I've included a comparison picture of it besides a MAC 219 pencil brush for those who are familiar with the MAC brush).
  • Might be a little big for your crease depending on the look you're going for. I like to use it a little above the crease.
  • The brush handle doesn't have the company's name or what kind of brush it is written on it. A few months or a few years down the road if a person wants to repurchase the brush, they might not remember the company or line (Bamboo Eco) & they might not even remember what the brush is called, which can be frustrating.

Precision Bent Eyeliner
7.95 AUD
  • Bent eyeliner brushes make it very easy to apply & wing your eyeliner.
  • Doesn't shed.
  • The bristles are a little flexible, but not too flexible, so you still have good control.
  • I end up picking up a lot more product with this brush than I do with an angled eyeliner brush.
  • The bristles are all different lengths & they don't taper into a nice tip.
  • Like the other brush, the handle doesn't have the company's name or what kind of brush it is written on it.

  • The sifter top controls the amount of eyeshadow that comes out. This is good because I know that the eyeshadow won't spill all over when I try opening it.
  • Blends well.
  • The site uses the words 'Bright Magenta' to describe the eyeshadow, which I think is a far better description of the colour than the picture shown. The colour shown on the site is completely different than the actual product, which is a hassle when ordering things online.

Here I've swatched Spunky a few times. Roll your mouse over the picture for more details.

Lastly, the fun stuff: Putting the products to use!
I used Spunky on the lid & on the brow bone to help blend out the black (MAC eyeshadow in Carbon). I used the pencil/crease brush to apply a random shimmery off-white colour under my brow & in the inner corner as a highlight. On my lower lashline, I used the pencil/crease brush to pick up & apply the 2 darkest purples from the 120 eyeshadow palette (1st edition). For the eyeliner, I wanted a thin line just to cover up the band of the lashes since the look already had a lot going on, so I used the precision bent eyeliner brush for that.

& to finish the look off I added the pink rhinestone, which makes the look a bit more glam! I love how the look turned out with this addition. It's all about the details!

My 10 Favourite Beauty Products

I was nominated for the Top 10 Award by LaaLaa Monroe from a while ago. I don't usually like to have the awards that I was nominated for displayed on my blog, but I thought this tag is a nice idea for a blog post, so here it is!

This is a post on my 10 favourite beauty products so far & these are products that I happen to reach for all the time. Please note that these do not include beauty tools. It doesn't even include eyeshadows because I don't wear eyeshadows on a regular basis. These are just some basic beauty products.

For the lips...

  • C.O. Bigelow's Rose Salve:
    This is what I use as my everyday lip balm. I have an older one of this salve, which I used to apply with my fingers & since that got a bit old, I have saved that just to use on dry skin or on my cuticles once in a while. I also used to get dry patches around my eye that came back every few months, but ever since I used rose salve on the dry spots, they haven't returned.
  • Revlon's Matte Lipstick in 009 Fabulous Fig:
    My fav shade of red. Although I don't use it in the summer because it's a brown-ish red & tends to show up a bit dark on me in the summer, I love how this looks on me in Fall, Winter, & most of Spring.

For the eyes...

  • Urban Decay's Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion:
    Over the past few years my eyelids have started to get oily, especially when I'm tired. This primer stops my eyeshadow from creasing. At times I apply a bit of this primer on my eyelids even when I'm not using any eyeshadow because it helps prevent my eyelids from getting oily.
  • Annabelle's Smudgeliner in Electric Sapphire:
    This is one of the very few blue eyeliners that show up well on my medium skin tone & I love using it when I'm sick of wearing the usual black eyeliner.
  • Lancome's Hypnose mascara:
    I usually don't splurge on mascara since you should be replacing your mascaras every 3 months & there are some drugstore mascaras that are amazing, but this mascara is definitely worth the hype. It's really black & it gives my lashes length & volume without clumping or flaking.
  • Annabelle's Liquid Eyeliner in Black Out:
    I've never come across a liquid eyeliner that's so matte. The pen brush tip allows easy application & is helpful when you're trying to wing your eyeliner as well.

For the body & hair...

  • True Blue Spa's Refreshing Citrus Body Scrub - Need a Margarita:
    I've used this myself & I like it so much that I've given it as a present too. It leaves my skin so soft & I don't feel the need to apply lotion after I use this scrub since it's so moisturizing. My scrub has turned yellow for some reason (maybe because I've had it for a while?), but it hasn't gone bad.
  • True Blue Spa's Shea Cashmere & Silk Body Cream:
    This cream has a light butterscotch & vanilla kind of scent. It's not as light as a lotion but not as heavy as a cream either, so it applies smoothly. It leaves a light scent on my skin, which I love. Whenever I've taken out this cream to reapply it & my male friends were around, they complimented me on the scent & a few of them accepted my offer to try it out too!
  • Bath & Body Works Signature Collection's Eau de Toilette in Blushing Cherry Blossom:
    This scent is good all year around. It isn't too heavy for the summer or too light for winter. It's priced well as compared to other perfumes that size. I like carrying this in my purse for the times when I'm in a rush & forget to apply perfume before stepping out. This particular fragrance might be discontinued though because I don't see it on the Bath & Body Works' website, but no worries.. they have tons of other fragrances that you can choose from.
  • Hana Shine Shield Thermal Protectant:
    Ever since I stopped following up my blow drying routine with my flat iron I've noticed that my hair is fine the day I style it, but at times the next day it doesn't want to cooperate. When I use this protectant though, my hair holds up even the next day & it gives my hair a nice shine.

I love these 10 products! I have linked the products to their respective sites. The packaging for 2 of the products has changed, but it's the same product.

What are your favourite beauty products? Have you tried anything that's on my 10 fav beauty products list?

UD Naked Palette from (Canada)

There are plenty of reviews & swatches available online for the oh-so-popular Naked palette by Urban Decay, so I'm not going to be doing a review/swatch for this palette. Instead I will be posting about where I got this palette from in Canada.

I wanted to purchase this palette as a present, but all the Sephora's I called &/or visited were sold out. I'm not really an online shopper so I avoided looking online, but (since the closest Sephora is approximately a 45 minute drive away from me) I finally gave in & decided to look it up online.

The website that I found had the best deal is The palette was listed as $58 and it qualified for free standard shipping & handling, however, with taxes the total came up to $65.54 CAD.

I placed my order on Saturday, November 12th & received my parcel on Tuesday, November15th. The palette was not wrapped in bubble wrap, which concerned me a little but when I reached for the palette I realized that the minimal packaging was sufficient to hold the palette in place. Other things included with the palette were: a brochure on Himalayan Gems sold on the website, a brochure on the site's return policy, & my order summary along with postage stickers that I can place on the package in case I want to send the palette back for an exchange or return. I have to say that I'm quite impressed with the site and the service.

I could have also bought this palette through Sephora's website, which sells the palette for $58 as well, but the standard shipping costs $9.95, which would bring my total to $67.95 CAD. Also, Sephora lists their processing time as 1-2 business days & their delivery time as 6-12 business days. In other words, was a better deal for me.

Although, it still annoys me that the palette costs $48 USD in the U.S., especially since I live 30 minutes away from the border. The CAD is stronger yet Canadians have to pay more for the UD Naked palette & our taxes are higher as well!

Have you been able to purchase the Naked palette by Urban Decay yet?
If so, where did you get yours from?

Cold Weather, Warm Look

Whenever I'm getting ready to go out I'm usually in a rush so I hardly take the time to do my makeup well. & then there are those days when I'm staying in & decide to test out some of my makeup & end up with something I love. Yesterday was one of those days.

Skipping eyeliner & opting for an orange/coral shade on the eyes, along with highlighted cheekbones & bronzer makes this look like it would've been perfect for the summer. I quite enjoyed the warmth of this look in the chilly weather too though!

Products Used:
  • Coastal Scents 88 Metal Eyeshadow Palette - orange & brown
  • i.d. bareMinerals foundation in Medium Tan
  • Senna Cosmetics' Liquid Ice - Illuminating Drops [under brow, on cheekbone, & on the bridge of the nose]
  • Annabelle Mineral Powder Bronzer in Terra
  • Annabelle Mineral Powder Blush in Hush
  • MAC Plush Lash mascara in PlushBlack
  • MAC lipliner in Chicory
  • Senna Cosmetics Cream Lipstick in Plush
  • Revlon Matte Lipstick in 009 Fabulous Fig
  • MAC Chromeglass in Pastel Polish [just a light dab on the center of the lips]

I think the yellow undertones in my skin make me look too pale in winter, which is why I love using bronzer during the cold months.

Earrings haul from the 2011 Eid-ul-Fitr Festival in Mississauga

Those who are familiar with the 2 Eids will probably wonder why I'm doing an Eid-ul-Fitr haul post when Eid-al-Adha is in 3 days. There's a reason to this madness, I promise.

I wanted to post about this earrings haul earlier, but I thought I'd save this post for now because I wanted to share my experience at the first Eid festival (or what many desi's call the chaand raat mela) I visited in Canada.
Yeah... I've lived in Canada for 10 years & finally decided to visit one of these festivals/mela's. I didn't have many expectations going in because desi (South Asian) clothes & accessories are overpriced in North America.

I was in a horrible mood on the drive there (the whole 1 & a half hours), but I was all smiles within 10 minutes of browsing around in the festival/mela. Not only did the stalls have an amazing collection of big earrings & jhumkas, but they were SO reasonable (as compared to regular store prices in Canada anyway).

By the way, examples of jhumka's are the pink & blue earrings in this post.

When I say reasonable, I mean I got all 3 earrings in this post for under $40. That's a bargain considering that the gorgeous blue jhumka's in the pic below alone would easily cost $50+ in a store in Canada. That seems pricey but the blue jhumka's are huge (compare them to the size of my finger).

It's true that these are much cheaper in certain areas of Pakistan &/or India, but you need to know those areas. I went to Dubai, U.A.E & a few other cities in India in the summer of 2010, but I didn't find earrings like these.
The people who set up stalls at the Eid festivals here own small businesses and get beautiful earrings from all over & they have so much variety!

Besides jewelry there were desi outfits (a lot of variety in the latest Pakistani styles), clutches, shoes, & an area where you could get henna applied. I was so mesmerized by the huge earrings that I didn't really pay much attention to the clothes & clutches.

I definitely enjoyed the Eid festival & it was worth visiting it. If you want to check out the upcoming 2011 Eid-al-Adha festival/chaand raat mela in Mississauga on November 4th, 5th, & 6th, check out their flyer above.

I had gone to the 2011 Eid-ul-Fitr festival/chaand raat mela at Maple Banquet Hall early in the evening. I highly suggest that you go earlier on in the day once the festival/mela starts. That way you will avoid the night rush since the banquet hall (after the stalls are set up) isn't that big & I've heard it gets extremely crowded at night.

Let me know if you've visited any of these Eid festivals/melas in your area & whether you think it's worth visiting them.

Review: false eyelashes 40

I was sent a box of 10 pairs of eyelashes (same style) by to review. Having used different styles of eyelashes in the past, I knew I would love these eyelashes as soon as I opened the box. Did I love them as much as I thought I would? Keep on reading to find out!

Since all 10 pairs come in one box, the band of the falsies is extended (as shown up close in the picture below) on both sides & inserted into holes. Before applying the falsies you will have to cut off the extended band, which means that you wont be able to insert the band back in the holes & store the falsies that way if you want to reuse them.

Price: $4.23 for a box of 10

  • The box comes with a "window" so you can easily see what style of lashes they are.
  • Easy to apply even for beginners.
  • Give you a nice amount of volume & length without looking over-the-top even though the lashes are thick.
  • Blend in well with your natural lashes.

  • The corner was cut off of 1 of the lashes (see the picture on the right above). You could always cut the pair of lashes & use them as outer half lashes I guess, but if you're purchasing 10 pairs of lashes, you expect 10 full pairs of lashes.
  • The website lists the falsies by item #, but the falsies style # on the box does not match the item #. This can be a problem if you bought a box of eyelashes previously & want to buy the same style again but don't remember the item #.
  • This style of falsies did not match the picture provided on the website! I liked the falsies better in person than the picture that is advertised on their website, but obviously this is a huge disadvantage when you're ordering things online because what you see is NOT what you'll get!
  • Their pricing chart can be a bit confusing for some people. What it says is that if you buy 1 or 2 boxes, you will be paying $4.23 per box; however, if you buy 3 or 4 boxes, you will be paying $3.97 per box, & so on.
  • Not suitable for everyday wear.

Bare in mind that my opinion of these falsies is based on how I felt after wearing these falsies in terms of comfort & the way the falsies looked on me based on my eye & face shape.

Check out for more eyelashes, nail art, & Hello Kitty items. The coupon code "SAIMESEK31" will give you 10% off your purchase till December 31, 2011.

Anushka Sharma's 26 Desi Outfits in Band Baaja Baaraat (Bollywood Movie)

When I saw the Bollywood movie Band Baaja Baaraat, I completely fell in love with the outfits that the actress, Anushka Sharma, was wearing. Everything that she wore in the movie was bold & colourful just like the movie itself. What caught my eye the most was the contrasting colours in the South Asian outfits that she wore: churidaar, shalwar kameez, a saree, & a lehenga. While watching the movie, I knew I wanted to do a post just on the outfits (besides the Western outfits & short kurtis/shirts with jeans) that she wore in the movie.

I would wear every single one of these outfits because even the simple ones are pretty & I have always loved outfits with bold & contrasting colours!

Before I get to the main bulk of the post, which is of course the pictures, I have included a short description for those who are not familiar with South Asian outfits.
Here's how you can differentiate between the different types of outfits:
  • Churidaar: churidaar pyjama (tight pants - these are longer than your legs, so when you put them on, they are supposed to pleat at the end around the ankle area), kurta (long shirt), dupatta (long scarf)
    - Example: Outfit 1
  • Shalwar kameez: shalwar (loose pants), kameez (long shirt - different word for a 'kurta'), dupatta (long scarf)
    Note: Since the actress is shown as Punjabi, she is mostly wearing semi-patiala or patiala shalwars, which just means that there is a lot more material & pleating involved as compared to a regular shalwar.
    - Example: Outfit 2
  • Saree: blouse, petticoat (this is the skirt that the saree material is wrapped around - you're not supposed to see this part of the outfit), saree material
    - Example: Outfit 25
  • Lehenga: blouse/shirt, skirt, dupatta (long scarf)
    - Example: Outfit 26
Now that all that is out of the way, I won't keep you waiting any longer. I've created a slideshow of the images, so just hit play & sit back & enjoy looking at the 26 outfits!

Some of the pictures taken from the movie's website (these have the Band Baaja Baaraat logo on them), some were found online, & others are all screenshots from the movie. Some of the screenshots are really blurry because she was moving so fast & it was hard to capture the outfit at a time when the details of the outfit were showing properly.

Click the image below to visit the official Band Baaja Baaraat website.

Hope you guys enjoyed looking at all the outfits. Would you wear something with such bold, contrasting colours?
I definitely have in the past & will continue to do so! ;)

A Foot Henna Design... On My Hand?

My parents always tell me I should apply henna on Eid, but I'm moody so I usually don't. A few days ago (after Eid) I was in the mood so I decided to finally apply henna on the back of one hand.

I usually prefer having a henna design that I like in front of me so I don't mess up my hands experimenting with designs. This time I chose a foot henna design that I had been wanting to try on my hands for a while.

The original design (pictured below) is by Nadra from NJ's Unique Henna Art.

I came across NJ's Unique Henna Art when my best friend asked me to find her a henna artist for her summer (2010) wedding. I researched & found quite a few henna artists but I was impressed with Nadra's online portfolio as soon as I saw it. Her designs are super neat, intricate, & just completely amazing!
& I do realize that it sounds like I'm being compensated for this post by Nadra, but I'm not. Her work is actually that awesome.

Sun & Storm

I've probably used coloured eyeshadows while doing my makeup less than 20 times since my January 2011 series. I usually grab the browns & a matte white just to open up my eyes a bit & to define my crease. The other day, however, I felt like playing around with colours, so here's what I came up with. It's very similar to a look that I've done before on Jan 14th as part of my January 2011 series.

Products Used:
  • NYX jumbo eye pencil in Milk [eyeshadow base]
  • Pure Luxe Cosmetics mineral eyeshadow in Sunny Side Up [lid + between upper & lower wing]]
  • MAC eyeshadow in Stormwatch [crease & blended upward till highlight + smudged on the outer half under the black eyeliner on the lower lashline]
  • Prestige Cosmetics eyeshadow in C-153 Angel [highlight]
  • e.l.f. studio cream eyeliner in Black
  • Almay blendable eye pencil in Black [waterline]
  • False eyelashes
  • MAC Plush Lash mascara in PlushBlack [upper & lower lashes]

Ramadan Mubarak!

Ramadan Mubarak to all the Muslims.

I decided to play around with my camera & this is the end result. I just cropped the pic & added the text. It would have been much better if the lily was fresh, but I still love how the picture turned out.

Left to Right: Forever21 Love & Beauty - Purple; OPI - Silver Shatter.

I never really liked the shattered/crackled nails trend but I thought I'd give it a try. I found that OPI's Silver Shatter shatters/crackles the most when you apply a thin layer of it.

My mum said my nails remind her of Halloween, haha! How do you like the shattered/crackled nails trend?

Bangle & Bracelet Storage

My aunt got me a bangle stand from India & I've been using it to hang both bangles & bracelets. I don't really get the chance to wear bangles as much since I usually wear them with South Asian/desi outfits, so I don't see the point of having all bangle sets on display in my room collecting dust. The hot pink bangle set has 48 bangles itself so what I like to do instead of having just bangle sets on display is have a few bangles from each set out on display, so I have a quick visual of all the bangles that I own & I hang up my bracelets on the stand as well. That way I have an easy access to all my bracelets & bangles.

I love storing my bracelets this way. I actually get to see all of them more, which means that I wear them a lot more too as compared to when they were stored in my drawer. Plus, they are all organized in one place too & all the colours add a nice touch to my room.

Review: Crystal Bowknot Shape Diamond 3D Nail Art

I had the opportunity to try some nail art from so here's my review. I had never tried 3D nail art before so I thought I'd give it a try & chose the Crystal Bowknot Shape Diamond 3D Nail Art DIY Decoration.

On their website, the price for 10 pieces is listed as $4.95, however, since I'm a reviewer I was sent 5 pieces but I didn't end up using those either. I'd usually make a pros & cons list, but the only pro that I have is that the bows are sparkly.

One of my biggest concerns was that the site did not have a size specified for the bows, so I was hoping that the bows were small so I could use them on one of my nails since putting bows on all my nails just isn't my thing. Sadly, when I received the bows I realized that they were a bit too big. Having that big of a bow on just one nail is a bit too much for me.
Then when I flipped them over, I was more disappointed when I looked at their back. The picture on the site shows the back of the bows, but I didn't think it would be that bad. I'm sure someone who is in to nail art could figure out a way on how to get the bows stuck to their nails without damaging their nails, but for the average person I think it's going to be a bit hard to do so with such a protruding back.

These 3D bows would be great for scrapbooking or other DIY decor projects, but using them for nail art doesn't seem practical to me. has a lot of nail art products such as rhinestones & nail dangles/charms & other things including false eyelashes.

I will be reviewing their falsies soon . Till then, check out & if you'd like to purchase something, you can use the coupon code SAIMESEK31 for 10% off your purchase before October 31st, 2011.

Review: ES false eyelashes [style A101, A013, A134]

I was sent 3 styles of ES brand false eyelashes by to review. At the time I was going through the site, I was a little disappointed. The prices were great but the site looked unprofessional & unpleasant. However, improvements have been made to the site & it looks a lot better than it used to.

Each style of ES falsies that I chose came in a box of 10 pairs.

Since all 10 pairs come in one box, the band of the falsies is extended (as shown up close in the picture below) on both sides & inserted into holes. Before applying the falsies you will have to cut off the extended band, which means that you wont be able to insert the band back in the holes & store the falsies that way if you want to reuse them.

Now I'm going to give my opinion on each style of falsies. I'm no expert on falsies since I hardly wear them but I think that every woman must know how to apply falsies since it adds that extra bit of glamour to any look based on the style of falsies. Also, bare in mind that my opinion of these falsies is based on how I felt after wearing these falsies in terms of comfort & the way the falsies looked on me based on my eye & face shape.


ES A101
Price: $4.89 for a box of 10
Buy it here

  • Thick band so it's easier to apply for beginners.
  • Makes your lashes look full & adds instant drama.
  • Even though this style is full & dramatic, it doesn't look too over-the-top if you pair it with dramatic makeup.
  • Slightly stiff.
  • These would have been my favourite falsies out of all 3 styles, but I hate how the falsies look super unnatural when you look down & people can see the top part of your lashes (for reference see the middle picture in the last picture collage). Since it's not human hair, from that angle it looks so stiff & so wrong. I think it would look bad if someone was wearing these falsies & looking down in a picture, or if the picture was taken from a birds-eye view.
  • Some of the lashes were not shaped in a nice curve (for reference see the 2nd picture). Maybe I'm being picky because you could take the falsies & wrap it around your finger for a few seconds to reshape it, but I think that's a bit of a hassle especially when you're in a rush.


ES A013
Price: $4.89 for a box of 10
Buy it here

I wore these falsies in my Back in to Makeup Mode? post.

  • Thick band so it's easy to apply for beginners.
  • The criss-cross pattern makes the lashes look full, yet in a natural way.
  • Opens up your eye since the falsies go from short in the inner corner to long in the outer corner.
  • Medium curl.
  • Slightly stiff.
  • This isn't really a negative point if I had applied the falsies properly, but the first time I applied these falsies, I applied it too much toward the outer corner on one eye. Since the lashes are long at the outer corner & have a medium curl, it made one eye look a bit droopy as compared to the other. You couldn't tell unless you were staring at me right in the eyes for 10 seconds or longer, but I knew about it so it annoyed me a bit.

  • Thin band makes it easier to apply the falsies really close to the upper lashes & cover up the band & glue with a thin line of eyeliner.
  • Natural looking.
  • Blends in very easily with your own lashes.
  • Amazing curl.
  • Out of the 3 styles, these falsies are the closest to feeling like human hair.
  • Thin band makes it a bit harder to apply the falsies.
  • While taking the glue off the band, you have to be gentle. I was in a rush while taking the glue off on one of the falsies so I can reuse the lashes, but ended up ruining the falsies instead since the band wasn't strong enough for me tugging on that glue.
  • Really long. These eyelashes are deceiving when they're in the box & look shorter because they are so curled.


To demonstrate the last 'con' for the A134 style & to compare all 3 styles of the ES brand falsies side-by-side, here are 2 pictures:

See how different all the styles are?

Now look at the curl on the A134! Notice how the A101 is the heaviest pair of lashes & has the least amount of curl.

Overall, these ES falsies from KKCenterHK are an amazing deal especially since they can be reused depending on how you take care of them.
