1st time at Beauties Factory

As nice as false lashes can be sometimes, I think they are too much work to put on and the corners don't always stay put (I use the Duo adhesive). I decided to try the single lashes just because I was bored and also because BF-Beauty.com is quite cheap. I found this site after watching Manwomanfilm on YT.
I created an account Beauties Factory a while back and I got an online voucher for I think $2??? I can't remember. So I purchased 60 individual lashes a few weeks ago and it came up to less than $5 with the shipping. I bought these lashes a while ago and didn't use them till a few days ago. They also sent me eyelid glue, nails and glitter for nail decorating.

If you have time, you should take a look around Beauties Factory. There's some pretty interesting makeup/cosmetic stuff there. I'm not too sure about the quality because it's so cheap, but it seems like on Manwomanfilm's tutorials, the eyeshadows are very pigmented.
If I had the time, I think I would get the uv gel nail set to do my own nails. It seems pretty cheap, and I've always wanted pretty decorated nails that last.

I'm not sure if this is true with all individual lashes, but the base of the lashes seem to be knoted/looped together instead of being glued together. This makes taking them out of the packaging very frustrating. I have to dig the tweezers under the lash and make sure I have a good grip on them close to the base before pulling them out....

...or else I end up with wasted lashes because they come apart. I actually threw out at least 5 because I didn't take them out properly. Btw, these are synthetic lashes.

These are 10mm lashes. They don't make a huge difference when I put them on, I just like how I can have fuller looking lashes while still retaining that natural look. You actually can't even see where I put them =p I used 2 in this picture and put them at the outer lashline with room inbetween each of them. They blend in very well with my other lashes.

Overall, they're not terrible once I get the hang of grabbing them out of the case, but I probably won't get them again because of that reason.
Don't you love how Blogger has a new layout editing tool? I put this layout together in 10 mins.

i just tried out individual lashes this weekend too and i liked how they looked more natural, but def more pain to take out and use!

They look super natural. I have worn these in the past but it takes much longer for me to take them out than the strip ones.

Somehow I have tried the ne editing tool but my blog was having none of it.

I clicked on the link at the site and i think it logged us in your account. it has this email... gugulate@gmail.com and a birthday of July 22... etc etc and your name and phone number on it. It looks like a toronto area code number so I suspect it may be your personal information. I would really suggest you either take this post down or remove that link, since it is linking us into your account on that website....

i did try that editing tool but then my banner's stuck at the left side of the page and stupid me can't fix it..-_-

haha i'm such a noob with lashes..either i get bad ones or i'd end up using bad lash glue so they never came out right on me

izumi said...

wow i can't believe you got so many for so cheap! very nice :) i don't wear lashes very often either, i usually either forget to or forget where my lash glue is.. therefore.. making it totally useless, hahaha. sigh.

single lashes!!! i suck at putting these on but they look really nice and natural on you!

hey girl, personally i find the eyelash eyelid glue sucks, its so hard to wash off. i hate it!

im a nail tech specialized in Japanese gel nails and i know many china manufacturers. BF's nail products are legit and fine. but the actual uv gel they sell is not a good gel. it cracks easily. i emailed them before and asked about the quality, they said the quality is comparable to a brand called sina (a very cheap brand) but they obviously wont tell u that. it wont kill ur nails, so if you're looking to buy gel products to test it out i guess its okay.

hope that helps! =)
