1.) e.l.f Dramatic Lash Kit - ***This is going to be somewhat of a review so bear with me!
I picked up this single set (as pictured above) & have to say that I was pretty impressed. First off, these lashes are only $1 & they look quite nice after they're applied and blended with a coat or two of mascara. As with most other pairs of synthetic lashes, these tend to be on the shiny side. However, because of how they're spaced, I don't mind it one bit & it really isn't noticeable.
You have to be careful when removing them from their plastic backing, though, because the lash band is somewhat flimsy & the hairs can get easily tangled or begin stick out in different directions if you're too rough with them (I recommend using tweezers to lift the edges up). However, because the lash band is so thin, these are really easy to apply/position & they blend nicely into my natural lash lines. Also, because of the size of my eyes, I don't have to cut these down to fit, but I do occasionally like to cut them in half (which makes them even more of a steal).
THE BOTTOM LINE: These cheapo lashes are totally adequate.
The only real problem I have with this kit is the glue it comes with! It's USELESS so buy yourself some DUO lash adhesive with the money you save on these.
2.) NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer
3.) Rimmel London Glam Eyes Eye Shadow Quad in 021 State of Grace
I wouldn't necessarily use these four colors together, but they're quite nice separately. I've used the silvery shade on top of a darker silver to make my eye shadow really pop. I've also layered up the blues in a recent blue-to-black gradient smokey eye look I did (pictured below). I haven't used the dark purple shade but overall, I like this quad. The colors aren't the most pigmented but layer nicely on top of each other or other colors, which makes it easier to get away with 'em. They also blend well. I guess if you're into blues & looking for an easy way to amp up your look, this isn't bad.
***I'm wearing both blue shadows blended together in my crease. I'm also wearing the e.l.f falsies I talked about above. My apologies for the grainy shot.
