Review: Revlon Fantasy Lengths Eyelashes....

Friday, October 16, 2009

*sigh*

I wish I had a review for the Revlon Fantasy Lengths Eye Lashes that were sent to me by Janet from Revlon( thanks!!) but...alas....


I CAN NOT APPLY FALSE LASHES....or I ALMOST KNOW HOW TO APPLY FALSE LASHES...

EITHER WAY...I CAN'T GET THEM ON

I actually received five boxes from Janet and Revlon but I messed up two pair trying to get them on my already curly, long lashes. I've watched ENDLESS amounts of You Tube beauty gurus and still can't get them on.


But they are beautiful...right? lol! They look like lashes I've seen applied at MAC counters....

I'll save them for when I get application down packed. :)

Review:China Glaze Matte Magic...

True Story:
A couple weeks ago, I was in Sally's and saw a 'jar' full of bottles China Glaze Matte Magic for '$3.49' sign on top. I thought 'What a freaking deal!',' considering they were retail $6.50. The SA rings it up and the total is $6.81. 'That's wrong', I said pointing to the bucket of ChG Matte Magic. So she fixes my price to $3.65 (plus tax), I pay, she bags it and I'm out the door.

I look back to see her SNATCH that bucket off the counter.:)


Here's a before of Revlon Black Lingerie ( best black polish period).....
Here's an after of Revlon Black Lingerie+China Glaze Matte Magic....

Pros:

-I love the way it made Black Lingerie look...I've lemming KO polish in Black, but the price($19.00) outrageous for a bottle of matte black polish. This looks just like it...cheaper

-I can used this on top of any polish. I like the fact that Zoya, OPI and others have done matte collections, but this was way smarter choice of product for such a trendy look, make a matte top coat for any polish. When I get the Essie Mint Candy Apple...oh....its going to be on!!!


Cons:

-Bottle's super small... .325oz to be exact. But marketing and business genius on the part of China Glaze again. Why invest in regular size bottles when this trend will be a thing the past in a matter of months?

-The brush is small but it picks up alot of product. You have to eyeball just enough for each nail...

-It was create streaks if you don't do the painting right. Check out the 2nd photo...you can see bits of gloss from parts I didn't hit with MM. I left it like that so ya'll can see the streaks.


Overall:

Buy it if into the Matte nail trend. I love Matte Magic so far!!
