All I can say is, why didn't anyone think of these before? So many people have given up on applying eye makeup simply because they cannot see. Well, no excuses no more! Here we have makeup glasses that allows you to magnify your eyes in order to apply makeup accurately and meticulously.
Magnifying makeup glasses make great Christmas gifts for anyone and at $8.99 + free shipping on ebay, you can't beat that! And I don't know about you, but these glasses are kind of Lady Gagaish aren't they? Kind of weird looking, kind of futuristic.....no?...anyone with me on this?....
O M frickin G...LED eyelashes?? It's kind of funny, but kind of cool. I don't know whether to laugh or run to the store and buy me a pair.
As an Asian, we grow up with our cultures' obsession to have bigger eyes. So much so that artist Soomi Park designed these eyelashes that are made to make your eyes look bigger. There's a mercury switch that turns on and off depending on how you tilt your head. Wouldn't it be funny if you were on a date and some guy was looking into your eyes and it kept shutting on and off. That would be awesome. Anyhoo, I thought initially that these eyelashes would be fun. I am attending a Lady Gaga concert and a pair of these babies would be perfect for the occasion. That is, until I watched the video on how they worked. Apparently you have to wear an ear piece and they have wires and it's just a hot mess. So until they perfect and create wireless LED eyelashes, I will stick to my usual falseys. The eyelashes with the crystals will give you the same light as the LED eyelashes without turning on and off.
Braided hair is cute. A braided hair headband is even cuter when you want to rock a bohemian/indian girl look, but braided jewelry? Questionable. This is a jewelry line from a relatively new company Grau Wal. I will have to see this in person and try it on to form a solid opinion. I mean, what kind of neckline would be best suited for a braided hair necklace? Is it itchy? What I do know is that when you wear this, you cannot be conservative. You have to be balls out funky and experimental. Can I see Lady Gaga wear this? Yes. But I've also seen Lady Gaga in an outfit made from a pile of Kermit the Frogs. Most likely that wouldn't be suitable for work. I must say, I'm not too into the necklace, but the bracelet is kind of cute. If someone gave it to me for Christmas, sure, I'd wear it once or twice. The gift-er would have to be a high roller because these hair jewelry pieces start at $110. That's a little steep considering the product. For now, I'll stick to braids in my hair or in a headband. Something more like these:
If you've been shopping at all, you must have seen EZ Combseverywhere! From your drug stores, to Walmart, to street venues and fairs, etc. I mean, EZ Combs are supposedly the new and improved hair clips. Since these hair clips have been constantly in my face, I finally gave in and bought 2 for $10. I was looking forward to something new because while I'm working, I always throw my hair in a ponytail. At the end of the day however, I'm pulling out handfuls of hair through the ponytail holder because of the stress. Not only was I just curious to see if this new product was really the bomb, but I felt like I needed to find a way to put my hair up with something more gentle.
So, I bought it. I've had it for a week now and I'm usually great with hair stuff. I am coordinated and I can utilize any weird product out there when it comes to hair. I will have to say, these things are mildly annoying. It is definitely not the most user friendly for beginners. At first, I didn't feel like it was tight enough. Then I realized that if you push it more together, it becomes looser. So I would stretch it out really far but I felt like I was giving myself a mini face lift when I did that. Which I guess isn't necessarily a bad thing.
I tried out all of the different looks. I did the half up ponytail, ponytail, french twist, butterfly twist, etc. At one point I just clawed it into my head at a random spot. Some worked out well -- the half up ponytail was cute. The ponytail and french twist I had to do over and over throughout the day because it kept getting loose. In the commercials, they say you can workout and use the EZ comb and it would stay put. I have a hard time believing that. I am not completely pushing this product aside, but I definitely don't think it's worth $5 a piece. I've seen places sell it for $15 and that's just ridiculous. I'm only upset that I bought it at a drug store, 2 for $10, which I guess isn't that bad, however, ebay is sooo much cheaper.
I definitely think that it's worth replacing a traditional claw because it's more comfortable to wear. With a traditional claw, you can't even lean back in your chair without resting your head on a big hunk of plastic. But with the EZ comb, you don't have to worry about that. It doesn't hurt to try this product out for yourself, just make sure you're getting the best value for it.
