Eyebrows Much?!
Here is the latest attempt at fixing my eyebrows. Yes, I am a man, who is desperate to get fuller, thicker, more masculine-looking eye brows. Although I previously purchased ABS Brow Wiz, I had to return it because I found the NYX Retractable eye liner (and a spooly brush) to work just fine. Coupled with Benefit's Gimme Brow in light brown, I attempted to use makeup to achieve a brow that met my goal. Next, as many of you know, I tried out my Cardini eyebrow prosthetic (made of human hair, attached to a thin sheet of clear material) that cost me $50. It needed to be trimmed a bit just to get it on my face right. Take a look at the results of FIRST TIME TRIAL AND ERROR: The top pic is what my brows look like when I wake up. Too thin, yet battered and messy at the same time. Life sucks. In the middle picture, though I didn't clean up my brows, I wanted to see what I could achieve with makeup. I felt that clipping and tweezing (to clean them up) would negatively impact my pursuit. The pic on the bottom clearly shows that I am wearing a prosthetic. The hairs are thicker than mine, even though they are made of read human hair. Also, the material, where it meets the skin, looks like my skin is flaking. It's weird. While I like the thickness of the prosthetic, it's CLEARLY TOO THICK! And too obvious that it's an attachment. Verdict (so far...) I am going to continue playing with the prosthetic. Trimming it more. Shaping it. Using a better adhesive. Then I will make a decision on how I feel. As far as the makeup, I think that my NYX brown is TOO BROWN! I need to go lighter and will pick up a gray/brown or a tawny or something like that. I still want to play around with it as this was my first and only attempt. What do you all think? YES, HONESTY IS TOTALLY COOL. I'm not going to freak out.

What's In My Mailbox!
Okay, okay, some of you are on the fence and cannot actually believe that I am crazy about beauty. The truth of the matter is, I am so obsessed, I have buried myself in debt in search of methods to reverse time and to accentuate what I already have. So...Can you guess what THREE ITEMS came in the mail today?!?!?!?! First things first. That white envelope in the upper left...um...yeah...that's A BILL! :( It's the scariest bill that I have to pay every month. So, if you said that it was my cosmetic surgery bill, then you would be CORRECT! My rhino, chin, and fillers cost about $16,000. I have to pay that off in one year or pay 29% interest! You don't want to know what my monthly minimum is!!! :( :( :( On to better things. In a recent card, I shared with you the woes of having REALLY HORRIBLE eyebrows. And even after spending $100 on makeup products to fix them, they just looked really bad. That's when I discovered (and ordered) human hair eyebrows that attach to the face with adhesive--just like eyelashes. FOR REALZ! Be on the lookout for my before and after card to show you how they look! Some of you may already be familiar with Smile Sciences. They partnered with popular social media personalities to showcase how effective their product is in seriously whitening your teeth at home using pre-filled syringes of fluid and a handheld LED activation light. CANNOT WAIT to try this out. You can be sure that I will be sharing a before and after of this as well. You've seen them on your favorite personalities. Now it's MY TURN to give a shot at Desio eye contacts. I ordered the caramel brown because from all the research, they appear to be the most realistic. I am eager to try the cc cream from IT Cosmetics because it's supposed to be packed with miracles. Let me know if you've tried these products and what you think. Also, if there's a product that you want me to test out, tell me! @jordanhamilton @kaminisingh @alywoah @TessStevens @mikayla @ChelseaHeyes @QueenYuki @KyotieWolf @kristenadams @Donnas @stargaze @flymetothemoon @ImUrBestFriend @galinda @Bekka @RaquelArredondo @jazziejazz @rmayra1 @prgurl4u2envy @DemiP @alannasofia @petname83 @TinaDang @dimplequeen @tiffany1922 @atmi @ZoilaObregon @brinJSN @CelinaGonzalez @JessicaChaney @Animaniafreak @CrystalBlunt @AliciaJaneth @NaraA @TurtleyTurtles @sherrysahar @raenel @CandaceJordan @LemonLassie @AprilNapier @peahyr @MyAffairWith @SarahRegulski @HappyLulie @GingerMJones @humairaa @yellowbug18 @reaper412
My Brows Are Jacked!
Recently I shared a card with you all about my attempt at fixing my eye brows. You can read all about that here. What you don't know is that, even after spending almost $50 on two products, I still wasn't happy. From a distance, sure, they look good. But up close, like when you're sitting across the table from me over sushi or when I'm making a random purchase, my brows look awful. And that's because it's all too obvious from that short distance from me that they are "painted on." So I did what any other normal person would do, I went back to buying cosmetics. This time, almost $60 worth! WTF?!?!? After playing with the new products and with my brows, I just wanted to throw up! They just look horrid! That's when I discovered these human hair eyebrows that attach to the skin using adhesive like eyelash glue. Made of human hair, this style that you see here is geared for men. It's extra bushy to that you can trim and shape it according to your personal preference. While they normally run $99, they are being offered for $49 through Headcovers Unlimited. They also offer three different styles of women's brows for the same price as the men's. I am going to buy a set of the lighter brown because I have a strange feeling that the darker brunette is going to arrive looking more black, which will give me a bizarre look. Wish me luck ladies! I will share before and after when I get them in the mail! @jordanhamilton @kaminisingh @alywoah @TessStevens @mikayla @ChelseaHeyes @QueenYuki @KyotieWolf @kristenadams @Donnas @stargaze @flymetothemoon @ImUrBestFriend @galinda @Bekka @RaquelArredondo @jazziejazz @rmayra1 @prgurl4u2envy @DemiP @alannasofia @petname83 @TinaDang @dimplequeen @tiffany1922 @atmi @ZoilaObregon @brinJSN @CelinaGonzalez @JessicaChaney @Animaniafreak @CrystalBlunt @AliciaJaneth @NaraA @TurtleyTurtles @sherrysahar @raenel @CandaceJordan @LemonLassie @AprilNapier @peahyr @MyAffairWith @SarahRegulski @HappyLulie @GingerMJones @humairaa @yellowbug18 @reaper412
