Makeup Review: e.l.f Studio Natural Lash Collection



Hello lovelies~ 
So today I have some false lash review from e.l.f! Sorry for the pictures of the lashes.. they are pretty beat up so let me show you pictures I found online



Those pictures are so much nicer to look at then my used and beat up lashes ;;

Now lets see what the company has to say about these lashes:

  • This complete lash kit provides the essential tools for creating beautiful lush lashes 
  • The lightweight and soft lashes fit comfortably on the lash line to give a natural enhanced look
Overall: ★ ★ ★  

So, overall, I love these lashes.  I have never worn such light weight lashes. The lashes I would buy were thick and heavy and it irritated me sometimes because I have such thick monolids. These are so comfortable~ definitely easy to wear for everyday. Once you put it on, you forget it is on because they feel like feathers. The downside of having such light weight lashes is that they are flimsy. Cleaning it is a pain in the butt because you don't want to ruin them.  Along with that, the glue that comes with it isn't going to keep the lashes on your eyes. These two reasons are the only reasons why I gave it 4 stars out of five. I love love love the lashes, how it comes with a half one and full ones along with glue and tweezers. 




Did it live up to what it is suppose to do?
  •  essential tools: ✔- Now the reason I gave it a check minus is because of the glue that came with it. Although the application of the glue onto the lashes is very very easy, the glue is just not strong enough to stay on your eyes for the whole day. The thing I like about the glue is that when you have a hard time putting the lashes on the ends like I do, you can go in and dab a little bit on the edges (while you have the lashes on your eyes) and hold down to make the ends stick to your lash line. It definitely gets to the hard to reach places instead of taking them off and reapplying them.  Other than that, the tweezers are definitely nice to have. 
  • lightweight and soft lashes fit comfortably on the lash line to give a natural enhanced look:  ✔++ I cannot get over how lightweight, soft, and comfortable these lashes are! I love love love it!  I was scared that it would not look natural because these lashes were so long but I think it does fabulously. If you look at the pictures of my face above, you can see how long the lashes are close up, but far away you can't really tell but I think it helps open up your eyes without being dramatic.

PROS:
  • Very light weight
  • Soft
  • Super comfortable
  • Opens up your eyes without being dramatic
  • Comes with glue and tweezers
  • CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP

CONS:
  • Flimsy. Be careful reusing it and cleaning it
  • Glue is not strong enough to hold for the whole day
Would I repurchase?
Definitely! They are $4.00 online at eyeslipsface.com but I got them for $3.00 at Marshalls!  So if you happen to be at Marshalls, dig through where all the soaps, shampoos, makeup, etc are and you should be able to fine these!

Recommendations:
Use eyelash glue you love and trust instead of using the one provided for you. It saves the worry you will have to go through to see if they are falling off or not. And knowing how incredibly light they are... you might not know they are falling off until someone points out that it looks like your eyes are falling off . Another thing is, take time and be very careful when cleaning these lashes if you plan to reuse them for a long time. 

Well that's it for this review! I hope it helped~ I am in love with these lashes! The Korean lashes I have been using are so heavy compared to these lashes... but they do give you a more dramatic look. I wonder what the difference in the two would be. Any ideas? If you happen to pick these up, let me know what your experience was with them!

Thank you for reading!
Love,

Personal: Pool day


Hello lovelies~ 
So not too long ago my boyfriend and I went to this wave pool
Okay, okay, I have been posting so much personal posts... I promise to do a review soon. I'm about to review some lashes soon so stay tuned~ 

But for now, I'm going to make a camwhore post because I can~ 


The wave pool was so so so crowed! So many kids... ;;;
But it was really nice weather and I got some sun... but I haven't gotten dark enough to change my foundation routine (Thank goodness!)
But ugh, why do I always have that half double lid on one eye... 
I ordered a bikini from Syndrome but I have yet to get it.... so I had to get this $7 bikini at Gabe's... which wasn't too bad but I really want my pretty bikini ;;


I wanted to camwhore some more but once I got into the pool, my boyfriend decided it would be funny to go to the deep end... and I can't swim. So what does this mean? I get my hair all wet and I looked like a wet dog....  so no more camera after that haha.


Look at him talking on the phone like he is all that.
Haha just kidding~
I hope you guys are enjoying the summer~ Get some sun and make memories~
Love,
 Rose

Personal: Motivation?

Hello lovelies 
So recently I have been trying to eat healthy and work out in order to get that flat tummy and thigh gap I always wanted.
Unfortunately, that only lasted for like a week  ... I'm still eating healthy though! Lots of colorful dishes filled with veggies and fruits!
The thing that only lasted for a week was the working out part. I just find it boring now. I used to run about 2-4 miles a day, five days out of the week for a long long long time until I overbooked myself with school and two jobs.
It's been over 5 months since I ran 4 miles.... and my tummy is definitely showing that I haven't been running  I don't gain or lose weight. I just stay the same weight its just that my body either is flabby or toned. And I'm definitely not liking my flabby tummy.

Currently I am unemployed and not attending school so I have a lot of free time. I tried to go back to working out, throwing some weight training in that I didn't do months ago. After a week an a half, I'm back laying around watching tv ... I just try not to munch on chips while I'm doing so.
The sad thing is I always complain about how I don't like this and that of my body when I can easily fix it by working out consistently. I just can't get myself motivated to do it because it's just not fun for me anymore to run on the treadmill.
Now, I could always run outside but where I live... there are no sidewalks until you get close to the campus... which I think is a good 30 minute walk without a sidewalk. (This sounds like excuses and it kinda is and it kinda isn't  but come on talking on a two way street for 30 minutes is pretty dangerous. Mine you I do not drive.)

I just don't know how to get myself motivated. It's always starting the work out that's hard. Once I'm in the zone I can stay at the gym for hours . I'm lazy and not motivated enough to initiate the workout. What should I do?

I really want to get back in shape but I really do not like working out. And as weird as this sounds, I'm very "shy" with what I do with my body. It took a lot of guts for me to start running outside because I was so self conscious about people in the car driving by and judging me. Then it took more guts to work out at a gym. I just feel shy about moving my body around. Even when I'm home alone (which is almost always because my boo is always working) I still don't feel comfortable moving my body this way and that to work out .
Does anyone else know what I'm talking about?

I'm thinking about taking pre-work out supplements that my boyfriend often takes. It helps the blood flowing and helps you focus. Maybe once I have that little "push" I might work out more. I'm also thinking about dancing with xbox kinect... but initiating that will be hard because of what I mentioned above.

Someone come and be my personal trainer. Since it's money going out of my pocket I'll go to the work outs, and I'll be properly working out so to say.

Sigh.

What do you guys do to stay in shape and motivated to do so? Do you guys have any tips for me?
Leave comments for me on how to handle my fat lazy butt problems lol

Love,
Rose

Personal: Thoughts on Monday June 24th at 11:16PM

Hello lovelies~
First let me start this post thanking those who took the time to read my last personal post and giving me encouragement and advice. It really means a lot that you would go out of your way to read a stranger's personal thoughts and have sympathy. It really does amaze me sometimes how good people really can be.

But I am back again with my crazy head filled with thoughts that prevents me from sleeping peacefully and once again I am here to blog to calm myself down. This time though, it isn't because of the dark/being home by myself.

So, what is making my head go crazy and making my stomach turn tonight?
Good question... I don't really know myself  I just feel kind of lonely with lots of things running through my head.

I guess to start off my train of thought is that I should be thankful for what I have. I should be positive and optimistic. I should not complain about things I can fix and wish to be like others. I should be happy with who I am, what I am and how I chose to live my life.
Only if it was that simple. 
Honestly, I can say that I definitely am happier than when I was going through middle school and high school. I went through a lot of crap. If you guys dig up my old tumblr, you can see how immature and depressed I was. Like, looking through the posts I was ashamed of what my own thoughts made me write on the interwebs (hopefully I'm don't get a deja vous going back and reading these personal posts on my blogger )

I can also say that I am very honest with myself (at least I try to be) and with others which overall makes me a happier person.

I don't even know where I'm going with this trying to talk all positive and stuff... I'm just lonely. And this isn't like "I don't have anyone to hug me and tell me it is okay" lonely but like a deep-down-in-your-heart-and-gut-feeling-that-you-are-one-person-with-thoughts-you-don't-even-understand-to-open-up-to-people lonely.
Do you guys know what I mean? I feel it in my stomach that feels like a deep cavern where all you hear is the echos of the wind and my heart feels like the endless sea that has no ships that would be willing to explore the vast ocean. That was my attempt to being poetic... Let's just say I'm not much of a writer 

Am I missing my family? My dogs maybe? What am I missing? What is that puzzle piece I am missing at this moment.
Better question, what truly makes me happy?

Maybe, like any other girls in a relationship, want their man to be a mind reader sometimes. Be that super hero that knows what you are going through and shows up with chocolates and flowers whenever you don't feel all that good without you having to ask for it.
I wish for too many things in one person and I know this. Then I have too many doubts on that person because I know I expect way too much.
Really, as vain and spoiled as this sounds, I want to be treated like a mother effing princess.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT I WANT ANYMORE 

My thoughts are seriously all over the place. One topic to another. One feeling to another.
The main point is that I'm really lonely and I honestly can't seem to figure out why. You would think that after writing all this stuff that I would have an epiphany by now but nope.

I want to go back to bed and lay next to my boyfriend and sleep peacefully like I normally would but the bed feels too big and I feel like he isn't really there.

I think I'm going to kill some time on tumblr and see if I can get myself to get tired enough to just make my head stop thinking so much.
