Lashes I Do Adore

Lets just say that i have a Love/Hate relationship when it comes to my eyelashes. Some days they look amazing and some days they are the most depressing things on my face. I think thats why i am so obsessed with false lashes. Choosing the right type of false eyelashes is very important because there are so many different types. Some Lashes are extremely long and some are natural looking. Some lashes have a black band some have a clear band.

Here are two examples :
This is an example of a clear band.  This has got be my favorite but i will explain why later.  

This is an example of the black band. Most eyelashes are made this way.
I personally prefer to use the clear band especially for every day. The clear band eyelashes are my favorite because they give me the most natural look. Some days I don't feel like putting on my face completely but i just want my eyes to pop. My eye lashes aren't as long as I want them to be and with lashes it always helps  me with the look I am going for. I don"t have a problem with using the eye lashes with the darker band but i sometimes come across a pair that are kinda on the stiff side and makes it feel like my eye is heavy because the band is so thick. I don't to blink and feel my eyelashes. All that does is make me mad and wanna take them off in the middle of the club lol.

Practice makes perfect when applying false eyelashes. Its not something that should be rushed especially if its your first time putting them on. So waking up late, knowing you should have been up an hour ago, and only got 20 minutes to brush your teeth, take a shower, and to find something to wear. That is not a time to fight to try and put them on because that will only end in a disaster with lash glue all over your eye and eye lashes on your lid not lash line. When buying glue for Lashes, there are two brands that i like a lot. The first brand is called DUO Eyelash Adhesive. It comes in two colors, white and black. The white glue dries clear and the black glue dries black. What i love about the glue is that the hold is amazing and honestly lasts all day. I don't have to reapply it or anything. I usually use the white glue cause i like that it dries clear especially if I am wearing eyelashes without any eyeliner. Another brand, I like is Lash Grip and it normally comes with Ardell Lashes ( my favorite eye lashes and they are 100% human hair) . This glue is also white but dries clear.

  DO NOT USE HAIR GLUE FOR EYELASHES. THAT IS NOT SAFE FOR YOUR EYELASHES AND IT IS NOT MEANT TO BE ON YOUR EYES.  You may think "well my eyelashes is hair" you right but your eye lid and scalp are two different things. Your eyes are sensitive and you do not want hair glue in your eye and the removal of eye lashes with hair glue will take out your eyelashes out.

Good Luck with your False Eyelash Experince

I never thought i would be so tempted to try a lipstick. I only considered it to be something only older women wear. I would picture the lipstick getting on my teeth and the day that happens,just my luck, I meet the most amazing guy and he runs away cause I look like I am having dental issues or skipped a few days of brushing my teeth. Well I was on twitter one day, the lovely Keyshia Dior, video model turned businesswoman, tweeted something about her cosmetic line, KA'OIR Cosmetics (pronounced Kay-Or) . So with me being nosy, I had to check it out and I am extremely happy that I did.

Let me say that she has the most amazing colors of lipstick and lip glosses, which she calls them Lip Pops. These colors live up to the oh so cute names she has for each color. Baby Bleu, Banana Milkshake, and Red Roses are just a few of the many colors she offers.

(from left to right : 14K, Diamonds, Glitz, Banana Milkshake, Jamaica, Rude Girl, Sade-Racquel, Baby Bleu,  Night, Platinum, Virgin, Sex, Red Roses, Mistress, Gorgeous, Ooh La-La, Wifey, Nudity, Keyshia Dior, and #DiorDoll)

Since the launch of her line, She has added three more colors : Pool Party, Neon Rockstarr ( inspired by the Hip hop Artist Trina), and Survivor ( dedicated to the Survivors of Breast Cancer)

Neon Rockstarr
So now that you get a feel for the cosmetic line. Lets talk about my experience. i have got to say that absolutely love this lipstick. I purchased two lipsticks : Red Roses and Nudity. These lipsticks go on so smooth. It is like they just glide across your lips. I wore Red Roses (with a little bit of Revlon Lip Gloss in Strawberry) for New Years and i absolutely felt like i channeled Beyonce` that night. The color lasted from the time i applied it all the way till it was time to wash my favorite. This would have to be the best red lipstick for the woman of color. It gave my my lips this sex appeal and it caught attention in a great way. I wore Nudity (without a gloss) and i felt amazing. Just as Red Roses, It went on smooth and it is a perfect nude color to wear with a sexy, bold eye. Its almost a Pastel Nude if that makes any sense lol. 

How is it Delivered?

When you order your KA'OIR, it will come in a little box with tape that has KA'OIR all over it. I have never been so excited about receiving a make up order in the mail.  Then the lipstick come in a little black package which is great because it serves as a little protector for the lipstick and that is a plus. The only thing that made me mad was my fool behind deciding to order it before the Thanksgiving Holiday and it took forever to get to me. Talk about checking the Mail Box and praying for the UPS Man come knocking on my door lol.


I feel like the price of the lipstick is perfect because you are paying for a great quality lipstick. I spent about 30 something and that included tax so its ultimately not that bad when it comes to pricing. 

Please check it out and you will not be disappointed.
