[Review]: Daiso Brown Mix False Eyelashes in No.3 Romantic Style

What up, my people? 

Can you believe July is over?! This means summer break is going to be done in a month! It's crazy how time flies! But then again, my break started way back in May since I didn't take any classes for this summer semester. 

As weird as it sounds, I'm ready to go back to school and take some classes! I've had so much time on my hands these days, that going back to classes will be refreshing. 

I finally have good news, I'm going to be even more busy because I found a job, and I'm going to start in a few days. ( •̀ᄇ• ́)ﻭ✧

Since I don't how much time I will have for blogging in the future, I decided to go ahead and review the brown mix false eyelashes in no. 3 romantic style, from Daiso, as I've shown from my previous post.

Overall view of packaging.
Closer view.
Out of the package.


From the Daiso eyelashes that I buy, the Brown Mix series is my favorite. The series has six different types of false lashes. 

Unlike the lashes that I had tried and bought  previously, from Daiso, the brown mix series lashes are softer and the lash band is clear and a lot more bendable.

 Today from the series, I`m going to be reviewing, the No. 3 Romantic Style one.

The romantic style lashes are the only ones from the series that have more, thicker, fuller and dense lashes towards the end of the eyelashes. Whereas other lash styles had the lashes spread out evenly, the romantic style lashes do not, as the appeal is to make the lashes more alluring.

In comparison from the other lashes from the same series, this one, surprisingly, the lash fibers were really soft. The band was also a lot more flexible than some of other ones in the series.


Due to the density and weight of the lashes on the end, the corner of the false eyelashes curled up. This resulted in the application taking a bit longer and the over all look appearing quite weird. ಠ╭╮ಠ

{My hair is messy, hope you don't mind!}

Look at how much length is added, when worn.
-I really like how long my lashes look, seeing how the lashes lengthen my real ones quite a bit.
My lashes are fuller...only at the end though.
-The lashes do give a fuller look, but only towards the end of the lashes. They are more suited for giving off the alluring or exotic look, instead of the dolly or doe-like appearance, I prefer instead.

★{Overall Thoughts}★

The packaging was adorable and girly, sadly, it's what made me drew to the lashes itself.
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ♡
The application was a bit more difficult compared to other lashes from the series, given how the ends would curl up.
❤ ❤ ♡ ♡ ♡
The comfort of the lashes was good, the band wasn't a hard plastic and the lash fibers were really soft.
❤ ❤ ❤ ♡ ♡
The quality is much better in comparison of other Daiso lashes.
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ♡
The price is great!
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
The overall rating for these lashes would be:
❤ ❤ ❤  

I would say this though, from the Brown Mix series, the "romantic style" ones have to be my least favourite. I would recommend trying the lashes from the series, but I would get a different style only because I found the other styles more cutesy and appealing. 

There's also the fact that these lashes are the first to ever curl up for me, so that's a minus. Also, if you're looking for lashes that gives you both length and fuller lashes, you might want to skip these ones!

Again, to end of on a positive note, these lashes are the softest ones from the series and the most flexible. They are probably one of the more unique ones as well.

Small Daiso Haul ❤

Hello everyone!

How is the summer treating you guys so far? Here in Vancouver, Canada, these days, the weather has been very sweltering and worse of all, very muggy(┳◇┳) More so, there has been numerous forest fires, so the air around me has been very smokey.

Before the weather had gotten to bad, I went to (what else?) my favourite store, Daiso, and bought some stuff with the idea of doing future DIY projects and personal reasons.

Believe it or not, I actually haven't been to Daiso for a while, so once I stepped in, I had the overwhelming feeling of buying a lot of things, but thankfully, I made my friend talk me out of not getting some things. (๑→‿←๑)

Here's some overview photos!

Let's look at what I got

1) Fake Flowers
I love pink too much.
-I picked up three pink bouquets with having the idea of making floral crowns during the summer. I have too much time on my hands and so I thought I might as well do something productive such as DIY projects for fun.

"Margarita" bouquet.
"Marguerite Bush" bouquet.
"Water Lily" bouquet.

2) False Eyelashes
-I have previously bought some eyelashes from the brown mix series before, but I didn't review them at the time, for some reason. These lashes are probably one the better ones from Daiso, in terms of comfort and design.

-From the brown mix series eyelashes, there are six different designs, I picked up two of them, number 3 and 6.

No.3 "Romantic Style" design.
No.6 "Fairy Style" design.

3) Floral Wire
-I bought the floral wire because it's going to be the base of my upcoming floral crown project. Since it's from Daiso, it's already cheaper than buying it from an arts and craft store, such as Michaels. While the wire is not long as I would like, I'm planning to tape the wires together with floral tape.

I'm hoping to write more blog posts during this month, but on the 17th I'm going to New York for an entire week with family, so I won't have too much time. However, I do have ideas formulated already for my next few posts.

Thanks for reading,

[Review]: Nature Republic Soothing & Moisturize 92% Aloe Vera Soothing Gel // {Outfits + Ed Sheeran Concert?!}

What up, my buttercups?

I hope you guys all have been enjoying the month of July. So far, I haven't been doing too much after my graduation and being on a break from school, has actually made me more lazy than anything. (◍•﹏•)

Fortunately, after getting a pep talk by one of my close friends, I'm feeling more pumped up and more motivated to do and getting things done. And one the tasks I want to do, is write more blog posts, in order to make up for missing the weeks of June.

For this post, I present you with a review on Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel

Company's stock photo.
Look how clear the gel is!
Closeup of the product.
What I really like about the product is that it doesn't one usage, but instead, has multiple uses.

The best 8 ways to use the gel.
Examples of how to use the Aloe Vera Gel
1. Moisturizing cream or as a face mask
2. Makeup base
3. After shave cream
4. Hair treatment and to style hair
5. Treatment for swollen eyes
6. Protection for nail care
7. Body lotion
8. Treatment for sunburns

The gel used as a lotion.
From the list of usage, I have used the gel as lotion. The substance of the gel feels nice and soft-like, I really like the cooling effect it has on the skin. As well, I also like how light the gel is. A pet-peeve of mines, is when I find lotions feel too heavy. Another plus of the product, is the smell! It's very light-scented and pleasant.

✿ {Recommendations?} 
-A big, definite, yes!! The product has various and numerous use and not only does it smell nice, but it feels nice as well on the skin. It also doesn't hurt that aloe vera, itself is a great substance for the skin.

Honestly, I was about to ugly cry, haha, when he came out onto the stage and when he started singing "Photograph".

-I would add the videos I took from the concert, unfortunately the file is to big. (。•́︿•̀。) 
So here's some photos instead!
