LED Lashes

Another post, another crazy cosmetics/beauty tech hack that I cannot get my head around… This time, it’s the turn of LED lashes. Lord, lord, lord, lord… No, not the singer who sings about Royals. The ACTUAL Great Lord! ūüôŹ

Disclaimer: Rudolph had a very shiny nose not eyelashes.

I just don’t know why people can’t just decide that sticking electrics on their face is a no-go. Imagine paying a British Gas bill¬†because you want to make your lashes light up. WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL?!

Yes, we all like a good rave once in a while but there are other ways going about¬†it! For starters, buy a light up shirt or a glow stick – don’t attach LED lights to your lash-line! Is this¬†not dangerous? Lights should never¬†be that close to¬†the eye, right?

I’m at a loss. Genuinely. I feel like I’m ripping these ideas to shreds today, and that’s not what I want…

I’m all for a glow up, but not when you’re ruining your lashes and potentially eyesight in the process. I just think it’s unsafe, not to mention silly. Sorry, not sorry.

It’s¬†not that they look bad, ’cause they don’t (to someone who likes that sort of thing)… It’s just, they don’t seem safe to me… LEDs are lights which¬†are similar to lasers. Therefore,¬†you¬†don’t need to be an optician to work out it’s dangerous…¬†Of course, it’s not directly being shined into the eye but even so… Still, I don’t like the idea.

Apparently, these LED lashes were trialed in the Bay Area… I don’t think they’re BAE-y at all!

FYI: I’m all for LED shoes, LED bags, LED jewellery etc. but I do think sticking LEDs so close to your eyes is wrong. Come on, your eyes should be enough to light up the room, you don’t need LED lashes! No?

Check it out below. Enjoy.

Fidget Spinner Contour

There is an actual homosapien who uses a fidget spinner to apply his contour. No, I’m not joking! If you thought the world had well and truly lost it at boiled egg beauty blenders, there was some of ‘it’¬†found, apparently.

Look, I’m all for technology and wearable technology, but I do think this is a bit stupendous… Firstly, the fidget spinner spins on surfaces. Surfaces always have¬†germs and bacteria. I may not be the most hygienic person in the world, but I’d never place my makeup brush on a kitchen counter or desk before¬†applying make-up with it. Gross. This fidget spinner has also been touched by other people, I’m assuming? Grosser.

As lovely¬†as James Charles‘ makeup is, I won’t get on board with the:¬†‘Fidget Spinner used to contour’ thing. Watch his tutorial below:

What are ‘Fidget Spinners’?

Fidget Spinners are cool gadgets that, in my opinion, are becoming overrated.

They were originally created to help children with autism cope with stress, but have since been used widely across the world…

According to reports, the¬†lady who invented them hasn’t¬†received any revenue from the idea because¬†she struggled to afford patenting the idea in the early days (2005), when it wasn’t popular… However, ¬†Catherine Hettinger (the inventor) has since spoken out,¬†saying she’s “pleased about its popularity.

Well, there¬†you go! A bit of factual information about Fidget spinner… That said, I still can’t find the bit where it says “they were designed¬†as beauty tools to help with¬†contour”, can you?

WUNDERKISS

Yes – I know the last post shared on here was about WUNDER2 – but, I mean, it’s called WUNDER2… So, expect TWO posts!

Looking for hydrated lips that are perfectly plumped and pouty? Look no further than WUNDERKISS PROFESSIONAL! You control your level of plump when you activate the product by injecting the Plumping Booster one level at a time (low, medium or high) into the Plumping Gloss to give your lips instant volume and shine. Prep your lips with WUNDERKISS Controlled Lip Plumping Gloss and leave it by itself or dab it off after a few minutes and apply your favorite lip color.

I have to confess that I purchased the WUNDERKISS Professional – Controlled Lip Plumping Gloss and hadn’t a¬†Sam Heck how to use¬†it.

Listen, it’s way too technical for me… It didn’t look it when I was researching it. However, when it arrived, I broke it and used all the solution in one go. Whoops! (Yes, it came with an instruction manual but ‘me no speak English’ is my only excuse, because tbf it didn’t make sense¬†in the way that¬†the English language should).

For those of you who don’t know, the Controlled Lip Plumping Gloss allows you to choose how plump you’d like your lips. So, you can choose between my somewhat flatty patties and Pete Burns/Kim K or Kylie Jenner. The choice is yours…

I don’t understand the packaging… It’s a syringe with solution inside it (apparently)… I didn’t know this. There was a step by step guide of how to use it, yet I still couldn’t figure it out. You know that song ‘Forever Young’? I’m Forever DUMB! As you can imagine, my heavy handed palm/fingers decided it’d be a great idea to rinse the syringe all the way. FAIL. That¬†solution should’ve¬†lasted a month, it didn’t even last a day.

Aside from the sheer stupidity of the packaging, I’ve got to say that the formula itself is so good. It does plump my lips and makes them appear shiny (which is what gloss is supposed to do, guys!) and soft. It evened out the skin on my lips and left my lips pert and plump even after drying. I love it.

The sensations I felt upon application was a cooling of the lips together with¬†a slight tingle. I felt like the nose of Samantha¬†from Bewitched. (My favourite show growing up). If you’re unfamiliar with it, first off – familiarise yourself. Then, then understand that her nose twitches.

WUNDER2

Today, I took a girl called Cara to Sunday Mass… #Mascara!

Who’s ready for another lashtastic and punderful¬†mascara review? If you’re not, you need to click the “x” in¬†the top left corner of the screen.

This time it’s the turn of the WUNDERFUL WUNDER2!

WUNDEREXTENSIONS¬†Lash Extension & Volumizing Mascara combines two formulas in the same tube that blend together seamlessly on application to create a false lash effect. The ‚Äėblue‚Äô formula nourishes and hydrates the lash, making it thicker and ready for the next formula. The ‚Äėblack‚Äô formula attaches mini 3D lash extensions to the lash creating length and even more volume. This Dual-Formula Technology enables our¬†WUNDEREXTENSIONS¬†Mascara to provide you with multiple lash benefits with just one stroke of the brush.

Whooooo! I really wore the hell out of this mascara, guys! ūüėČ

I’ve been wearing it for a few days and I can categorically tell you that it’s the best mascara since “the best mascara“.

Yes, I know – every time I discover a mascara, it’s the new “best” one. Honestly though, this one actually is.

Do you want me to tell you why..?

Okay.

Firstly: it¬†doesn’t flake like a Cadbury’s… I have a real issue with my previous mascaras, even if I didn’t mention it… They flake off and start leaving¬†bits of dried formula all over my under-eye area.

Contrary to what you may believe, I don’t spend a lot of time looking into mirrors! Therefore, you can bet that I’ve been known to sit through meetings looking like an eczema ridden panda/raccoon. Yeah, not remotely nice or attractive, but there you go… This is a problem no more thanks to¬†WUNDER2.

Secondly, it is the first mascara to exist (that I’ve discovered) which¬†washes off without leaving marks or stains!

WOW. Can I get several “OMG! THAT’S SO FETCH!”s, please? Thanks.

Like, seriously… It’s BOOMTOWN! I can declare¬†that I washed my face just once and didn’t have to follow up with a wet-wipe. Girls/guys who wear makeup, you know how hard it is to take mascara off, don’t you? It’s a mission!

Thirdly, the formula is¬†the bees knees (not my own because… DON’T EVEN MENTION MY KNEES!) it’s got fibres that lengthen the lashes, fan them out and make them look like falsies. Don’t worry though, ’cause they’re left looking like the most natural looking falsies… Falsies that look like realsies. Yes, that’s more like it!

Fourthly (‘how long is this going to go on for..?’ Your guess is as good as mine!), I enjoy¬†the richness in the colour of this mascara’s tint. All black errtaaaaaaaang! The darker the hair, the cooler the flair… #Raven.

Fifthly, and by ‘fifthly‘¬†I mean the number FIVE-LY not FILTHY –¬†you FILTHY ANIMAL/S!

Anyway, fifthly, ¬†it’s just the be all and end all of the society of lashville… So, if you’ve got lashes (or lash extensions), wrap your them¬†around this wand…You’re going to want to!

Sixthly (this may take a while), let’s mention the wand… WANDS AND DAT!

Bae. It’s the BAE ALL AND BAEND ALL OF WANDS! You’re BAEsically going to WANT this WAND. It’s thin, but gets in all the right places, covering all lashes at all angles, top and bottom.

Seventhly (oh, just pull up a chair!), there’s no excess of formula on the wand. The right amount of formula is always on the wand – ready to be applied.¬†Also, that¬†leads me onto eighthly and ninthly smoothly (wait, that could also be tenthly).

Eighthly: a little goes a long way. Kinda like Mo Farah but not. Look,¬†I’ve never met him, so how should I know?!

Ninthly, it doesn’t clump. Like at all. Each lash is fanned out and looking naturally tinted, curled and lengthened (probably up to SEVENteenthly now).

What makes up my ‘tenthly’, you ask? This mascara is¬†smooth like a cigar… I don’t smoke and don’t condone smoking at all, but I’m guessing cigars are smooth.

If you’d like to know what I put on top of my face, here’s the list of things I put on top of it… Top.
