Red Cherry Lashes (bulk order)

Bulk order of Red Cherry eyelashes :)

So the store I usually buy my favorite Red Cherry lashes stopped carrying them (just my luck). So I started to find an alternative place to buy them.

I had purchased tweezers from madamemadeline.com in the past and remembered they had a gigantic selection of eyelashes; so I went there first. They have SO many different styles of Red Cherry eye lashes, and they're cheaper than I've been buying them at the store (even with shipping)! I was in heaven!! They also have thousands of other eyelashes from different brands. So I went crazy and bought 10 pairs and have since placed another bulk order. The quality is exactly the same as the ones I've been buying & the shipping was really cheap, they also have photos for each style which is really helpful.

Needless to say, I'll be purchasing my lashes from Madame Madeline from now on :) My search is over!

Here's what I bought all together:
- 1 pair of Red Cherry lashes 5
- 1 pair of Red Cherry lashes 15
- 1 pair of Red Cherry lashes 46
- 2 pairs of Red Cherry lashes 47
- 6 pairs of Red Cherry lashes 62
- 2 pairs of Red Cherry lashes 47
- 2 pairs of Red Cherry lashes 138
- 2 pairs of Red Cherry lashes 600
- 1 pair of Red Cherry lashes 104 (bottom lashes)-no pic, sorry!

Here are some photos of my order & what the lashes look like on :)

I wanted to take some shots of the different styles I have to give you an idea of what they look like. Kept the makeup natural so it wouldn't take away from the lashes. Hope you like them!

this is a photo of my first bulk order

Lime Crime Red Velvet: Review & Swatches

Lime Crime Red Velvet: Review & Swatches

REVIEW:
Absolutely LOVE it; my favorite red lip gloss. The color of this is just stunning; the perfect crimson red. It comes in a sponge application & is very easy to use. It dries matte and can last 8+ hours if you don't eat or drink anything too oily, but it isn't smudge-proof so you have to be careful. The consistency is a light liquid & isn't sticky or thick. It's not very moist but it doesn't dry out lips either. I would highly recommend this if you're a red lipstick lover like me. I told a friend about it and she bought both the Red Velvet & Suedeberry and loves them!

You can purchase this lovely product HERE
Or check HERE to see if there's a store near you that carries Lime Crime!

Here are some product photos & swatches.

Grape Silk

Grape Silk

I've wanted to do a matte cut-crease look using white & purple. I decided to do a white to pink on the lid and cut it with a deep purple blended into a lighter violet color. I did rosie pink cheeks highlighted with a light color on the top on bottom of the pink; neutral pink lips & braided my hair into a headband with an updo.

Hope you guys like it!
