1000 Hour Eyelash Adhesive Review – Hair and Make Up Products

Good morning everyone! Continuing my “Hair and Make Up” theme of blog posts this week, today I’m going to be reviewing some of the beauty products I’ve been using lately.

Review- 1000 Hour Eyelash Adhesive:

Our recommendations are that you go to your pharmacy and seek advice in regard to a suitable antihistamine that will help reduce the allergic reaction. Also you should take note of all the ingredients so that you can ensure you will not be exposed to any of these ingredients in the future. We would like to fully reimburse you for the cost of the product and any associated pharmacy/medical costs.
We would like to thank you for alerting us to your reaction. If you would like any further information or have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Kind regards.

Now I did my own research into the ingredients and it turns out that two of the four listed on the packet are known allergens. So I’m a little bleh on their ability to call it a “hypo allergenic” product when there are 2 allergens in it.

Price: $7.95 (as far as I remember)

Verdict: To be honest I still love the product. It sticks well, it dries perfectly clear and in a reasonable amount of time. When I had a complaint it was resolved in quick and satisfactory manner. That said if you have any kind of allergies or asthma you should seriously think about whether it’s worth developing an allergy to this. BE VERY CAREFUL. If anyone knows of a lash glue which is actually non-allergenic let me know please?

Rating:4/10 (If I wasn’t horrible allergic then the rating would be 8/10) r />

Review: L’Oreal Preference “Scandinavian Blonde”

Background information: My hair was blonde (exact colour as in these photos) with around 3cm of very light brown regrowth. Experiences: Bought this dye to cover the regrowth. It did not. When buying it I made sure to check the color guide, according to that my hair should have turned out the same as the front cover. I put the dye in as per the instructions. The mixture looked suspiciously dark but I gave it the benefit of the doubt… It looks like this in: And you know what? When I washed it out it still looked like that. Very much not a light blonde, much more like an ashy light brown. It also stripped all of the warm tones out of my hair. It didn’t cover my regrowth, it just left a strange line. Price: $12.95 Verdict: Very unhappy with the results, not remotely like the front cover. Rating: 1/10

Review- L’Oreal Excellence Creme

Background information: After the complete failure of the “Scandinavian Blonde” I decided to use this to get the natural reds back in my hair. Experiences: Again I checked the swatches on the side of the box and it should have turned out the nice coppery colour on the front. It did not. It turned my hair a medium mousy brown. The one positive thing I have to say about this dye is the applicator comb is awesome! It made the usually painful application process super easy. Normally it would take me around 20min to apply, it took less that 5 with this comb. Price: $9.95 Verdict: Crappy colour, good applicator. Rating: 3/10

Background information: This set was a gift from Nuffnang. It is supposed to make your hair softer, shinier and protect against heat damage Experiences: This has actually been really nice. All 3 samples pretty much have a coconut kind of smell, personally I hate coconut but most people find it pleasant so I won’t mark it down to much for that! I thought the texture was nice and creamy and it felt good in my hair. The leave in Velvet Whip was what I was most looking forward to and I was pleasantly surprised. Normally leave in conditioners make my hair really frizzy or stringy, this seemed to be a perfect balance and my hair was soft all day. Price: Samples free from Nuffnang Verdict: After using it for a week my hair is softer and smooth. Rating: 8/10

Review- L’Oreal Superior Preference.

Background information: This was the first shade of copper I used after bleaching for the first time. I wasn’t quite ready to go completely blonde so this was a great in between colour. Experiences: This one actually went on exactly how it should and turned the colour on the box! Shock horror! You can see how my hair looked in this post for an after pic. Price: $8.95 Verdict: Really liked the colour, though it didn’t have a fancy applicator. Rating: 8/10

Review- L’Oreal Super Blonde Prelightener Creme

Background information: I have used this 3 times, the first two to strip out my red hair dye and the third to correct the mistakes of the “Scandinavian Blonde” etc. Basically it is supposed to strip out dye or lighten your naturally dark hair. Experiences: I can’t say how much I like this bleach. After using it 3 times my hair hasn’t sustained any lasting damage at all. It corrected the Scandinavian incident easily and now my hair is back to it’s blonde glory! It also brought out a lot of the orange tones in my hair. The only thing that I don’t like is that it takes over an hour to complete as you have to apply it in two lots. The applicator also sucks. Other than those two minor flaws I am going to continue using this to manage my regrowth. Price: $14.95 Verdict: Love the colour, it’s a little pricey but well worth it. Rating: 9/10

Extra~

Now that you’ve made it through this many reviews you deserve a treat 😉 Here are some photo of me with a lady bug that was in our garden the other day! How cute! Unfortunately around 4 seconds later it pooped on me! EWW! So are there any hair or beauty products you want to see me review? See you next post 😀

Poupee Girl Changes- The Jewel System

Well a lot of you guys are my friends on Poupee Girl so I thought I’d have a talk about the new Jewel system that they’re implementing now.

Yogen Fruz – Shop Review

Time for another review, this time of local yoghurt shop Yogen Fruz!

I’ve been trying to get healthy lately. I know, I know, it’s lame but a diet of only cheese burgers will eventually cause me to not be able to fit into that lovely Jesus Diamante jsk! But I loooove candy and sweets and pretty much everything that’s bad for me!

And so the search for a delicious sweet treat that won’t balloon my waist!

What is it?

Well basically it’s frozen yogurt. You can order it two ways “Blend it” or “Top it”. Blend it is where you pick some fruit and the puree the yogurt with it until it’s a smooth delicious mess. Top it is where you pick a flavor and then they put some fruit/nuts/sweets/random other thing of your choice on top

The buzz around this is that it’s actually a healthy-ish snack because it’s got pro-biotics and vitamins and junk in it.

Strapya World Review (and feature news)

Japanese export site Strapya World Review.

Hello everyone and welcome to my first shop review! Be warned this is a big post with LOTS of pictures. I thought long and hard about which shop to review first but all the online spending that my K-Rudd Stimulus Money let me do gave me an idea! Everyone is always asking where I get my deco supplies from so here is a review on…

Strapya World!

Now a little background info:

Shop- Strapya-World Url- https://www.strapya-world.com/index.html Location- Japan

Products- Decoden supplies, little fake foods, cell phone straps, Disney and Hello Kitty accessories, random Japanese kitschy junk.

Prices- Well it’s a bit hard to compare as it depends on the exchange rate. Prices are in Japanese Yen. You’re paying more than you’d actually pay in Japan but most of the prices are still quite reasonable as long as your exchange rate doesn’t suck as hard as the Australian Dollar.

Yes I'm a Poupee Girl Too

Poupee Girl is one of the most addictive websites around. It’s kind of like fashion crack.

I don’t think that there is a Lolita online that hasn’t succumbed to the delicious perils of the Poupee world.
