Duo Brush On Lash Adhesive Review

REVIEW:
My #1 Favorite.
Awesome product!
- Great hold, lasts well over 10 hours
- Easy to use & apply
- Goes on a white, dries to blue/green
- Dries quickly and clear
- Waterproof

It's affordable  about $6 and available at CVS pharmacy,Target (maybe Walgreen's & Walmart)
I've tested it splashing in the pool and the lashes were still on after getting soaked (even though the lashes looked like crap & lost their shape, point is- they were still on. haha!)

CON:
- Gets Messy
The only thing I really can't stand is the packaging. For some reason after using it a number of times and twisting it shut, the product seeps out of the cap & it gets messy and dries all over the outside and makes my fingers sticky along with anything around it. Although I hate that, I still haven't found a better glue to leave it for so I just deal with the mess....yup....that's how much I love it.

Velour Lashes T Dot Ohh: Review & Pics

Velour Lashes T Dot Ohh! :)

Velour Lashes T Dot Ohh, How I do, love you :) For graduation (got my BA in Project Management) I decided to spoil myself & buy 2 pairs of Velour Lashes. I got a pair of T Dot Ohh & Oops Naughty Me.

Product & Packaging Photos



REVIEW: 
Love them for a more subtle, natural look. 
The quality of these lashes in phenomenal & they look so natural, you really can't tell they're not you're lashes. I really love this product, even considering the price; it's worth it because of the high quality.
These lashes are VERY delicate though so when removing the glue, be VERY gentle.
Also, I personally DON'T put mascara over them because it just ruins them.
They also have new styles in stock now which I haven't gotten my hands on yet, but they look beautiful! 

You can purchase these lashes HERE at Velour Lashes.

I did this look just to showcase the lovely Velour Lashes,T Dot Ohh so No eyeshadow used.
