Super Affordable and Awesome False Lashes

I've been using ES Fake Lashes ever since they were sent to me to try by KKCenterhk. ES carries a variety of gorgeous fake lashes from natural to dramatic and colorful ones too. You will definitely find something that suits you.

What I like:
-ES brand has so many products to choose from: false lashes, eyeshadow palettes, blush palettes and etc.
-There are 10 pairs of fake lashes in a set. That's a lot!
-Affordable. The lashes I tried are only under $10.
-They are made from plastic, so they are easier to clean and reuse.
-Easy to apply. The bands were thin and was easy to bend.
-They fit and look great. Trim to fit your eyes and use a good glue to apply.

What I don't like:
-Thee shipping takes awhile because the company is based in Asia. But the products are great, so it's worth the wait.


Here's what they sent me...


ES 10 Pairs Long Natural Fake Lashes
A103
ES 10 Pairs Cross Short To Long Black Fake Lashes
A077
ES 10 Pairs Glamour Short Black False Lashes
A89





I highly recommend ES false lashes for those who wants to experiment with false lashes. They are great quality and very affordable.


Go to KKCenterhk.com to check out their products.




Have you tried ES brand false lashes from KKCenterhk? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Super Cheap Fashion Haul

If you've been a long time reader of my blog, then you should know that I love shopping at the L.A. Fashion District, especially at San Pedro Wholesale Mart. They have insane, super affordable and cute clothes!!! Click HERE to see what San Pedro Wholesale Mart looks like. It's only open to public on Saturdays as early as 7am to 11am. And believe it or not, people do wake up that early on a Saturday just to get a good bargain. The place is always packed.

I went on Saturday with my friend Lian and she could not believe such place existed lol. She bought a bunch of stuff for so little money!

Here's what I got...Notice that my style is pretty random. I pretty much like anything that looks cute!

Tan colored faux leather booties by Moda $10. It looks like something Estefania of LoveLifeFashionBlog would wear so I bought them.

Forever21 button up plaid shirt $5. I love anything plaid. They never go out of style!

 D'Closet African print top $5 right? I love the pattern and color. 

The Clothing Company lace and crazy print top $5. I don't even know how to describe it, but I love it! 

Sweet Color chiffon top $5. It's such a fun and flirty top.


Route laced tank top $3


La Festa spaghetti strap bohemian dress $5. I love the lace and random patterns.


Route floral halter top dress $5. This will be so cute for Spring!


Cefian USA summer dress $5. So bright and pretty!


Sugar Lips military style denim jacket $3. I was kind'a shocked when I heard the price. I was expecting $10.


Route cheetah print mini skirt $3. Kiko said it looks tacky, but what does he know, right? lol.


Topaz pencil skirt with pockets $3.



Military green ivy cap $2. Yes, only 2 freakin' bucks!


I also purchased some super cute Hello Kitty earrings for $1 each. They are so irresistible!








Fashion Jewelry necklace with Peace sign pendant $1


Please don't judge me for for buying these kiddie looking Hello Kitty headbands. They were only $1 each. I'm not sure how I would wear them lol.


Gaaahhh how can you say no to her!?



That's about it! I only spent a little less than $70 for everything. How sweeeet is that! Also, for those who are wondering, everything is brand spankin' new and not damaged at all ^_^.

Wet n Wild Color Icon 8 Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Petal Plusher

Wet n Wild Color Icon 8 pan Eyeshadow palette in Petal Plusher is what I'm loving at the moment. I've said it before that I have thing for purples and this palette fulfills my purple eyeshadow cravings. It has 8 cool shades of purples, bluish-purples, plums and pinks with shimmery finish. All the colors are beautiful, pigmented and very easy to blend.



Wet n Wild says, (taken from their website)
"Eight dynamic, perfectly color-coordinated shades with high pigment and pearl for ultra-impact color. Shades can be used together or individually to create an endless variety of looks."

What I like:
  • The colors. Usually I prefer warm eyeshadows because those look best with my medium/tan skin tone, but the cool colors in this palette still looks great on me. 
  • The shimmers in each shadow are not too over powering. 
  • Labels are embossed on the shadows. It makes it easier for beginners to apply the shadows on the eyes. But of course you can mix and match and place the colors where ever you prefer. Just don't apply black on the brow bone lol.
  • It has a good black and dark plum shadow. They have some silver flecks on the swatches, but they're not visible once it's on your eyes, which makes them great for defining and contouring the eyes. 
  • Texture. It's soft and silky and easy to apply.
  • They last a long time under a good primer.
  • Easy to blend. It was very easy to blend one color to another for a smooth transition.
  • It has less fallouts.
  • Very affordable. It's only $4.99!!!
What I don't like:
  • The packaging. It's not sturdy, so be careful and don't drop or else it will break.
  • The highlight color on the upper left side is a bit chalky. It requires a bit of blending to get a decent payoff.



It comes with a double ended  and angled bush. I don't use it.

Here is the look I did using this palette. I love all the colors especially the lid color. It's like a plum old rose color with gold shimmers. It's so gorgeous! Click HERE for the complete look and tutorial.






Do you own this palette? How do you like it?

Jenna Bra and Thong Set...Adore Me

If you remember, I blogged about Adore Me, a lingerie monthly subscription service.They were kind enough to let me try one of their lingerie to review. How exciting! The set I picked is called Jenna, a gorgeous bright magenta lacy bra and thong set. Initially, I wanted a baby doll slip, but they were all sold out with my size. However, this set is sexy and gorgeous, so I'm still happy.



How it Works:
  1. You take a short quiz to help the stylist find out a little bit of your personality and style.
  2. Then their stylist will work on your showroom where they will recommend lingerie that you might like. They will send you an email once your showroom is ready.
  3. Choose from their stylist picks and checkout. 

What I like:
  • I like my lingerie showroom. Their stylist did a pretty good job in recommending lingerie that I might like. It was actually difficult for me to pick because everything looks so pretty.
  • The packaging is adorable. It came in a white box with Adore Me logo and the lingerie was nicely wrapped in pink and white tissues. This would be a perfect gift to your friends.
  • Great quality lingerie. The fabric is 85% Nylon and 15% Spandex. The fabric and lace feels soft yet sturdy at the same time. With proper wash, this will last for a long time.
  • They fit perfect and comfortable. My bra size is 34A and panty size is small. The bra provides a great support and hugs by breast just right.
  • I love the color. It's a bright fushcia. The color looks exactly how it is online. 
  • There's a slight push up padding in the cups. Anything that gives my breast a little perk is great ^_^. 
  • Super fast shipping. Free Shipping and Return. It came in 3 days!
  • Great customer service. I emailed them with some questions I had and they were quick to response.
  • Their price of $39.99 is affordable to me because I don't have to buy every month! Adore Me says, You can buy ONLY when you fall in love with a piece in your showroom and need to snag it! After you place your first order with Adore Me, you are considered a member of our lingerie society. The next month, as you receive your monthly showroom, you can choose between purchasing an item or skipping this month and not buy anything."

What I don't like:
  • Popular lingerie quickly sold out with my size. I wasn't able to get my first choice, which was Natalie, a cute babydoll slip. I had to wait for the next collection to come out to pick another lingerie. 
  • The bra doesn't look exactly the same online (Look at the photo below). It has a lace on the cleavage and the hook is at the front, while mine is a full cup with lace over it and the hook is at the back. I'm not really complaining since I got the set for free and the fit is awesome. However, I could imagine being upset if I did pay for it. But they do offer free exchange, so I can return and exchange it for something else, which I'm not going to do.



Here are more photos of the set.


























Even though I was sent a sort of different bra, I still see myself ordering from them in the future. They have a great selection of lingerie, the quality is great, they fit me perfectly and the shipping is super fast. I just hope they have more sizes available for my small boobies ^_^.


Have you tried Adore Me before? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Purple Petal Plusher Look

I'm so excited to share this look with you. It's a dramatic, smoky and purple look!!! I have thing for the color purple at the moment and I don't know why lol. I'm obsessed with my purple sequined boots, cardigan, camis, and eyeshadows. So, when I saw all the gorgeous purples in the Wet n Wild Color Icon Palette in Petal Plusher, I couldn't help but do a look. Also, I like to point out the color I used on my lids. It's like a purple plumy old rose color with a gold sheen to it. It's just so pretty!

I hope you like this look and let me know if you decide to recreate it. Oh, and if the bright pink lips is too much for you, you can use for a natural nude lip color instead.








For my eyes, I used Wet n Wild Color Icon 8-pan Eyeshadow Palette in Petal Plusher ($4.99 at your local drugstores). It's my first time using it and it's so awesome. I already love it just as much as the other Wet n Wild 8-pan palettes. It has gorgeous shades of purples and pinks, all shimmery and pigmented colors. I can create endless looks with this palette! The colors are also easy to apply, blend and I noticed it has less fallouts, which I was very pleased.







Wet n Wild Mega Last lipstick in Dollhouse Pink. It's a new shade in the Mega Last collection. It's a bright barbie pink with purple undertone. It goes well with the dramatic purple eye makeup. Isn't it a gorgeous color?




Products used:

face:
-MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC42
-Stila Perfecting concealer
-MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in Medium Deep

-NYX eye base in White
-Wet n Wild Color Icon 8-Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Petal Plusher

Here is the tutorial for this look. Enjoy!
