Lash Extensions vs Lash Lift?
I am struggling to pick which procedure I should do this month. I've always had thin eyelashes and need a boost every now and then to get my lashes to look full and thicker. For those not aware about these procedures; Eyelash extensions involve gluing or bonding individual fake lashes to your natural  lashes to make them look physically fuller and longer. On the other hand, a lash lift involves giving your natural eyelashes a perm procedure(kinda like one you would do on your hair) to make them appear longer and fuller. So, the lash lifts give an enhanced look to your natural lashes while the eyelash extensions can be used for a rather dramatic effect. Eyelash extentions: Pro: They give the most dramatic look to your eyes and are perfect for going out makeup. You never have to wear mascara. Con: If not properly applied by a professional, they would have to be taken out and in doing so may harm your natural lashes. Lash lift: Pro: They look absolutely natural as compared to the extensions. Because they are your lashes. Can last up to 12 weeks. Con: If your lashes are too short then you can't get lash lift as they won't come out long enough. So before choosing it is important to know what type of look you want to attain. If you want a dramatic look, go for the extensions . If you want natural look then lash lift would be more suitable. Furthermore, if you have short lashes, then you can only do lash extensions. I think I will be going with lash extensions this month.
3 Skin Products That Have Actually Worked for Me
(image: glossier) Are you tired of buying products and seeing a whopping total of zero results? Same, girl. So today I'm going to share a few products that have actually had a noticeable impact on my skin. (image: mom fabulous) 1. RoC Deep Wrinkle Retinol Correction Holy cow guys. This stuff is absolutely magic in a bottle. Retinol in any dosage higher than this can only come with a perscription because it is incredibly strong. Creams with this product, if the dosage is right, practically erase fine (and not so fine) lines. I attacked my crows feet with this cream and I kid you not, I saw improvement and near-elimination of my deepest wrinkle in one week. One week. The little tube is a little pricey but good God does it work! Warning: I used the Day and Night cream religiously and after a few days I noticed that my skin was rather red. The labels warns that this happens and you skin will get used to it, but it persisted for longer than I liked. I stopped for a week, then went to only using the night cream and I haven't had a problem since. Retinol is a serious chemical so don't over-do it! Get your hands on it here! (image: pop sugar) 2. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment The winter weather is not kind to my lips and there is nothing I hate more than that tight, almost sticky-dry feeling you get when your lips are parched. While drinking water helps, I found that this lip treatment not only moisturized my lips but softened them, slightly lessened the lines on my lips, aaaand just as an added bonus, it tastes delicious. I got the color 'Bloom' which is supposed to work for pretty much all skin tones, but check out their collection and find one that works for you! Get your hands on it here! (image: klairs) 3. Klair's Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask This is so sci-fi it's not even funny. The mask has a quality that no matter how much you use it, it will slide back into its previous shape like memory foam. So every time you open the jar it looks brand new. Because of this, when you put the mask on your face is really squeezes into your skin. When I wake up, my skin is literally glowing. Warning: I only use this once and week because I found that if I used it more than once a week I got a small breakout (gone the next day) on my nose. That could have been related to my time of the month, but I didn't want to risk it again, plus you really don't need to use it that often! Get your hands on it here! What are some products that have ACTUALLY done something noticeable for you?
