LOTD: Wnw lust palette + reviews (Wnw, Revlon, Lucido-L)

Last week, Revlon had contacted me via email and wanted to give me some products, so I was like sure. When I received and opened the package, I instant knew I would love the more dramatic falsies (even though I haven't worn it yet). :) 

I've never tried Revlon's falsies, neither have I tried any brand of fake nails. I have yet to try on the fake nails once I give myself a manicure, so stay tuned for that post. 

Please excuse my ugly fingers :( Here I have applied Revlon's lash adhesive to the falsies they gave me. This is enough product to provide for a great application. It looks blue-ish when you put it on the falsies, but it dries clear... thin and clear. 

Today I bought a bunch of wnw products, two palettes, and five lipsticks in fact, and I wanted to test one of the palettes. After all, many are currently raving on them. I'm using the 6-color palette in lust. Most of its swatches have matte colors... which I find rather on the difficult side to blend :( or maybe it was because the brush I used to apply the purple was still damp from a cleaning... which explains why it's like that. :P Over all, it's a great and affordable ($4.99) palette found at your local drug store. Great color pay off. I think that Wnw has been stepping it up, ever since they came out with more pigmented nail polishes.  

So I tried Revlon's false eyelashes in 91168? (The less dramatic ones on picture above). On it's packaging it says "ultra lightweight" which I definitely agree on! I've never bought their falsies because I tend to go for the cheaper ones ($1 for the win!). I believe they cost $3.49, but they're really, really ultra lightweight so I might actually buy these. I've only seen them in certain drug stores... I think Walgreen's carries them. But what I loved best about these lashes is they're the perfect size for my eyes. ^_^

I went outside to eat dinner after putting on my make up (lol, I put make up when I get bored or have nothing else to do even though I have no destination to go to... people do it all the time!) and my grandma instantly noticed that my eyes appeared bigger. She complimented me on how she liked my make up, but really I think the cause of my bigger eyes were because of the falsies. I love these eyelashes, it's no wonder a lot of other bloggers love them too. I'm late when it comes to product wonders at times. 

Revlon falsies
Price: n/a (but I think they go for $3.49)
Product: 5/5 Ultra lightweight... an absolute love!
Packaging: 5/5

Wnw palette in lust
Price: 5/5 $4.99
Product: 5/5 Great color payoff.
Packaging: 4/5 because I think it could go without the make up applicators I never do use.

Now I'm going to review the Lucido-L hair curl lotion. It's always great to apply some sort of styling product to your hair before you curl it because a lot of times if you don't, your curls end up looking crisp. Always use a heat protectant though! It's supposed to create an "airy" (as its bottle says) curl, and it really does. I used Conair's 1" hair curler to curl my hair, scroll down for my results. The spray has a light scent that goes away in an instant. Keep in mind to set your curls with a hairspray because this product alone won't do that for you. I love Lucido-L hair products, I actually bought two other hair products (can't read them though... lol) when I went to Hong Kong and I had a great experience with them. Incidentally, I think Lucido-L is the female version of the popular male hair styling products under Gatsby... I THINK.

(My cheekbones are highly defined, and a lot of times it seems like I've added contour to my face, but I didn't. :P I love exaggerating my cheeks by contouring it with Benefit's hoola bronzer, MAC blush in harmony, or MAC blush in blunt.)
