Model 21 Lashes # 6, # 08 and # 19 Lashes • Review

Some time ago I got the chance to try some lashes by Canadian brand Model 21 Lashes.

I tried three different styles, the #6, #08 and #19 lashes.

Each pack of lashes contains 10 pairs, thing that I think is very convenient for users, especially professionals.

6

The #6 lashes can almost be considered corner lashes. They’re long (especially in the end) volumizing and provide a nice elongation to the eyes. They’re short compared to my lashline.

The glue excess is easily removable.

The #6 lashes have a nice criss cross pattern and are lightweight.

I recommend these corner lashes to people with medium/long lashes, because the transition from real to fake would otherwise be too evident; however, I like to use individual false lashes to help them blend in better.

I recently talked about some new Makeup Addiction Releases like the Meadow Palette and the Light Reflecting Loose Powder in Turkish Delight. Another newly released product is the Holy Glow Vol.1 Highlighter Palette.

Here’s how it’s described on the official website:

Palette Composition

  • White Diamond – Described as a “silver reflective diamond white“, White Diamond is a cool white highlighter that resembles the shine of a pearl. Love this one, since my skin is light and it’s an amazing inner corner highlight .
  • Pink Champagne – Described as a “pearlescent pink with gold“, Pink Champagne is almost a coral highlighter with hints on pink and gold. On deeper skin tones it looks amazing, I use it where the highlighter meets my blush to create a very subtle transition and I personally love it as an eyeshadow too.
  • Golden Beam – Described as a “light reflecting gold with white sheen”, Golden Beam is a light gold highlighter, that I like to place under white diamond to create a more dimensional effect.
  • Sun Kissed – Described as a “radiant metallic champagne“, Sun Kissed is a lovely champagne color. It looks awesome on a warm bronzed look paired with Golden Beam.

When the original line was released, they immediately caught my attention. I literally fell in love with all shades, especially Mermaid Beam (love at first sight!) and when I got Turkish Delight I had the chance to actually feel and play with the amazing consistency this highlighter has and it’s jawdropping. And this rose gold is gorgeous, seriously.

It has a very fine consistency and it’s extremely pigmented.

Lash Storage Solutions! • House of Lashes

I want to share with you how I like to keep my lashes organized and how I do carry them around in my kit.

This article may be interesting for you, if you want to keep your false lashes organized in your vanity, in your travel bag and/or in your professional makeup kit.

Travel Bag/Purse

Everytime I go out with falsies on, I carry one of my Precious Gem Lash Cases (you can find it here ), so I can bring the glue, the tweezers and other little useful things, just in case. It’s even provided with a mirror.

It can be a good idea for travelling too. You can safely bring your favorite lashes and accessories and basically take no room in your suitcase or beautycase.

House of Lashes • The Mini Collection + Lash Adhesives Review

sparkleoflight mini collection house of lashes review iconic iconics boudoir siren wispy hol false fake

What I love about House of Lashes is not only the amazing quality of their lashes or the variety of styles they offer, but also the fact that they do really care about their customer satisfaction.

They decided to create a line, called the Mini Collection, featuring some of their most famous and iconic styles. It is dedicated to those who want to go for a more natural look for day wear and/or for those who need a smaller lash for a perfect fit and wear.

Here’s how the Mini Collection is described on their official website:

“Your favorite lashes have been miniaturized! Our Iconic®, Boudoir, Sirenand Wispy lashes have been scaled down by shortening the lash band and lash length to create a more comfortable fit for those with smaller eyes or for those who want a more natural look and feel from some of their favorite lashes! Each lash is structured like the original so you can get the same drama from your lashes while increasing the ease of daily wear“.

Iconic

One of the most famous HOL lash styles is definitely Iconic, described as showstopping lash that combines a dynamic V-formation effect with a criss-cross pattern.

“Our Iconic Mini’s are structured like the originals with the same dynamic v-formation and crisscross pattern that gives these lashes their flair that now feature shorter lashes for ease of daily wear”.

As you can see in the picture below, there’s an evident diffence, in terms of drama and dimensions, between the original Iconic lashes and the Iconic Mini.

The Iconic Mini are shorter and obviously result less dramatic, compared to the original ones, but the “wow” effect is guaranteed .
