*sponsored review* A66 False Eyelashes - KKCENTERHK

Here's me today in the morning. Tired, and freezing, but with a nce make-up!
I've used new make-up product I got.. Sponsored!

Some time ago I got an e-mail from KKCENTERHK, who offered to sponsor me a product for review. I got my first review offer, I was so damn happy! My blog still has little followers (but I love each and every sinlge of you) so I was really suprised by this offer. Obviously, I said YES.

KKCenterHK is online beauty products shop, located in Hong Kong, that sells mainly Korean and Japanese products, such as wigs, half wigs, false eyelashes, make-up, nail art accessories.. All in quite economic prices! ;)

You can visit their website by clicking *HERE*

The product I got to review are.. False Eyelashes!
Can't get any better, can it? Eylashes are my thing, I love them, I love trying them, using them, checking their "behaviour" and sutff like that in order to find the best ones.

The eyelashes I got from KKCenterHK are:
ES A66 Clear Band Black Natural Fake Lashes

Product Information:
Price: USD$10.01
Brand: ES
Quantity: 10 pairs; re-usable
Shipped from: Hong Kong
Made in: Korea
Glue NOT included

Eye lashes come in a carton box, each pair separated:

As descpription says, there are 10 pairs inside, each seperate.

Here's how the lshes look in a close up:

As you can see, the bands are transparent, which is a big plus - makes using them so much easier! The bands are a bit too long, I guess to fit them into the empty holes in the box, o I suggest cutting the excess off before using (I didn't want any transparent empty band itching my eye corner ^^)

I was glad I got a natural model. I've been looking for some natural lashesh I can use to create the dolly eye effect but wouldn't be too dramatic for University. I hoped those will work out!

So, let's see how they are.

I won't go through the whole make-up progress, so here's my face which is almost done but lacks the most important element - flasies..

Sorry for the stupid ribbon, the fringe was getting in my way :P

Close up for eyes WITHOUT lashes, just my own lashes touched by mascara:

Let's GO GO GO! ;)
As a glue I used DUO by American International Industries. My favourtie eyelash glue ever, BTW.

Makes a difference, right? Although the lashes are not very long and noticeable, the eye looks bigger and better defined. I like the effect!

Sometimes I just can't believe that eyeashes make such a hige difference.. Those are not even much longer than my own lashes with good mascara, but the effect is just totally different.

Satisfied with it, I didn't give up halfway, and finished my make up!
That means... Camwhoring time!

Ok I think I got too into self-admiring.. Hhaha.

Goin back to lashes.

My verdict:
Comfort: 4/5
The band is a bit too long, I had to cut it. However it's a bit stiff, I had to bend then for a while before putting them on. After glueing them on my eyelid though I haven't noticed any discomfort through the whole day I wore them. Hair is very soft and not too shiny.
Effect: 5/5. Those are meant to be NATURAL and - for me - they are! Not too lon, but not too short, not very dense and defined, they're not catching someone's eye instantly, but I can create the huge dolly eye effect with them.
Quality/price relation: Those come off very cheap! It's like, what, 1$ for a pair? They're definitely re-usable - MANY times - and there's 10 of them in the box. It's quite an offer. The only complaint have is that the lashes in the box, well, each of them is slightly different from another ones. I had to spend a while to find a pair of identical ones :) However, I don't think it'd make a huge difference if I'd just taken two random ones.
Shipping: I haven't paid for the shippin so can't really comment on shippin rates, however the package was really neat and well secured.

Overall: 4/5 !

I'm so glad I got them sponsored, the day I run out of them I'm purchasing new box. :P

news & memories :)

I *NEED* to get myself back to blogging! Last weeks I spent in Barcelona were extremly busy, spending time with my friends, partying, shopping, just hanging out, eating. With my boyfriend, enjoying every second we still had together before the separation. At my workplace, where everything got busy and complicated after the manager left - and I didn't even get my vacation.. I was meant to go for a weekend to Andorra with my boyfriend but in the end I was working till the day I left Catalunya..

When I got back to Poland I had to visit every single member of my family, get my insurance back, get my cellphone contract.. And a new cellphone!
Since few weeks I'm a happy owner of an iPhone 4! (and yes I know I got it right before the 4S got out, I don't really care honestly XD)
I got it in white :)

My straps - David Villa t-shirt / screen cleaner to show off my love for FC Barcelona; omamori which says "yume" that I got at Kinkakuji when I first went to Japan in 2008 to make me believe in my dreams and never give up on them, because this little thing is a proof of one of them coming true; and cute strap ice-cream to sweeten up my lonely life, hahaha.
Picture of my man on the bakcground of the phone, because I just miss him that much ^^;

My Korilakkuma cover! It's the cutest thing ever, haha, but I think I need to get new one in some time, because, as you might notice around the ears area - the drawign is coming off :( but well, can't expect too much from 2.5$ + free shipping cellphone case XD

I LOVE my iPhone for picture editing applications it has got! Well, I love it for many applications (Angry Birds FTW... Lol, but seriously I love Viber and WhatsApp only because of them I haven't gone bankrupt yet and I'm able to chat with my bf and my friends just as if I were with them!).
You take a picture and you can edit it directly on the phone then snap! Facebook. Hhahhah. I love the effects made by Chinese app called 美图秀秀 (Mei Tu Xiu Xiu). The effects are really cute :)
Here are some pictures edited with MTXX:

Looks good, doesn't it? ^^

Ok, what's more.. I guess even more important than my iPhone.. Haha..
I've officialy started the University!
I'm first year student of Japanese Studies at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan..
I'm not sure yet if I'm happy about it or what. I used to REAAALLLYYY want to get into that major. I've been studying for my IB exams like crazy just to get into japanese studies. And then when I did.. Suddenly the satisfaction wasa gone. Like, so, yeah, this is it? No magical booom, no fireworks?..
So I left for a whole year to Barcelona to rethink my life and stuff like that and now I'm back in the sam point that before, because I couldn't find any other way to achieve what I want.
So far my classes are kinda boring and we have to work a lot (like 6 pages homeworks and shit). Hopefully it will just get better as our level advances :)

My study materials, haha..

Today I went with my mum to the countryside to close our summer house and walk around the forest with our dog for some time, getting fresh air and stuff. The weather was really nice today! It's been raining past few days but today it was sunny and just a bit cold.

Although basically I'm a city-lover, once in a while I like to escape away from the noise and pollution and relax closer to the nature. I've spent a lot of time in my childhood in that forest, so going back brings a lot of emotions :)

Talking about memories, I still have a lot of pictures from Barcelona that I will upload once in a while. The Barcelona period of my life is not over and will never be over.. Already making plans of getting me back to that city I love.

I just found today some pictures from a summer day in Barcelona when I went to La Maquinista with Amelia and my boyfriend.
I was tired and my hair was shit after work.. But it was still a very nice day!

First we stayed at UDON though to get some food!
I ate my favourtie Green Rolls, gyoza and edamame <3

Then we took the metro to get to La Maquinista and get into a shopping spree in Forever 21 <3

Please forgive my shoes but those were only flats I had and my feet rebelled against wearing heels after work..

Then we saw Farggi cafe with.. icecreams! God, they were sooo tempting we couldn't resist!

I got raspberry-mango sorbet and dulce de la leche :)

Then I left my boyfriend because I found the love of my life :D

We wanted to get married, but somehow it didn't work out.. I still regret it.

I hope this kinda long post makes up for my long abstence! I promise to post more now. ^^
