Recently, I was on the market for a wallet. As I never owned one and my cards being thrown in my bag. The inside of my bag was a complete mess. So I bit the bullet and went off to find a wallet.

Sophisticated and sleek the DARRAH wallet will lend a contemporary feel to your everyday look. Finessed from sumptuous leather with a super slim design and metallic trims, this modish accessory is a must-have.

The wallet I bought is the Ted Baker, Darrah. The wallet makes me feel sophisticated. As the wallet itself is sleek with a contemporary vibe to it. This comes in three colours, millennial pink, rose gold and black. The wallet has a metallic trim in rose gold for all three wallets.

The front of the wallet is stamped with the Ted Baker Brand in rose gold. It also as a front pocket that I do not use. As I’m always scared something will fall out if it.

The zipper is continental, meaning it goes around the full wallet. The zipper is in rose gold and has the Ted Baker symbol on it.

The shoes are made from white leather and do not feature the Adidas three stripe logo on them but holes in a similar pattern. These holes give the wearer ventilation.

They come in many colours but mine is in the black heel. The retail price is $110 CAD, but if you want my version if you go to Artizia.ca or com you can get them for $75 CAD right now.

Mega Multiplier Mascara

PSX_20170628_171012-01

Revlon just came out with four mascara in the beginning of June called the Mega Multiplier Mascara. This is a one step fiber and tubing mascara.

20170626_100528

With most fiber mascaras you get the fibers in your eyes and on your cheeks, but with this mascara, you do not.

The mascara’s formula is full of buildable fibers and has 360° tubes. Which delivers mega volume and extreme length for a false lashes look. That does not smudge, smear, or flake. Plus it is also waterproof without the waterproof formula. Also, the formula drys really quickly and does not transfer onto the eyelids.

The Mega Lash Brush helps coat lashes. It looks like a normal brush with the pointy end. This brush is a bit old school as it is a bristle brush. The brush is really big which makes the application quick and easy.

The mascara does make your eyelashes longer and separates them nicely. With one coat of mascara, the eyelashes look natural but better. Whereas with two coats, it looks like you are wearing natural false lashes. With two coats of mascara, your lashes do clump together a bit. Once you passed the three to four coats it looks like your wearing false lashes.

This mascara claims to lengthen your eyelashes and for me, it did.  This mascara cost $11.99 CAD, I think it is worth the money to buy as most tubing mascaras tend to cost around $20 CAD.

Until til next time

What it is:
A tech-noir smoky eye kit in two iconic, intergalactic sets: Ultra Violet Blue and Ultra Suede Brown—cult classics to transcend the classic smoky eye multi-reflective finishes. Where I purchased the Ultra Suede Brown as it is the more neutral shades of the two.

Black smudge liner, Dark matter, Ultra suede brown, Mercury, Astral white

The colours via Sephora:

These long-lasting pigments are easily blendable, delivering an instant, bold incandescent color. Refined in its richness, luscious pigments in sublime shades—Dark Matter and Mercury—offer a velvet-meets-velour texture for diamond-like sparkle and ultra-blendable brilliance. Subvert smoky eye looks with the color-morphing Astral White pigment. It delivers multidimensional dual chromatic light-reflective effects. Give lids sensorial shine with this lustrous pigment and watch as the hue alters from opulent opalescence to surreal incandescence.

The pigments

My thoughts:

Of the six colored products in this kit, only two are really great on their own, namely the eye kohl and the brown pigment. The eye kohl is creamy, a very rich pigmented black, and sheers out beautifully. It’s also easy to use it with a synthetic brush to get more precision if desired. The ultra suede brown is copper in daylight and orange in incandescent and super rich and pigmented. I usually like matte products better, but the shimmer/glitter in this is stunning. With the rest of the kit, the magic is in the combinations. The gold/pewter color is ok on its own and the white barely shows, but both are amazing over the eye kohl (the pewter takes on an almost metallic green cast while the Astral White shines a brilliant baby blue). It’s true that the eye gloss makes a mess and is probably best for photos, but thin layers don’t appear to disturb much while adding depth but only on the lips. While on the eyes it tends to crease the makeup. I’ll probably get the least use out of that, but it is gorgeous. I like that the black isn’t too dark, it’s by far the most forgiving black I own and will get a lot of use for that reason.

Is it worth it:

For $175 CAD it is not worth it.  The packaging for the makeup was very cheap. The pigmentation of the swatches on my arm took 3-4 swipes except for the ultra suede brown which took 1. Plus, you probably could find dupes for all these colours.

Expressing individuality is quite different then what it use to be. We get so caught up in what the media portrays, what we think, what others think,  what we believe and what we don’t,  that we forget to live as we are losing our perspective.

We decide what hair type, skin tone, face shape, and body image is ideal in the world. That we lose sight of all the millions of possibilities that are out there in the world.

And I think we need a true reminder of what authenticity really looks like. Leaving behind the click-baits, and challenging the old standards of what beauty really is.

High Heels

Image result for tumblr heels photography

Being vertically challenged, I am always in high heels or wedges. I’m 5’2 if you’re wondering. 🙂

By wearing high heels all the time I think I can teach you how to wear those heels in the back of your closet or for that special event you’re going to that requires you to wear heels. I am going to teach you everything you need to know about high heels.

The taller the heel you wear the least comfortable your feet will be at the end of the night.

The thicker the heel the easier it is will be to walk in them.

Looking at the heel arch can also tell you how comfortable the heel will be. If the heel is closer to a 90º the heel won’t be comfortable.

The front of the heel will tell you how comfortable the heel will be. The pointer, the front of the heel is the least comfortable it will be. Whereas, around front will be more comfortable.

Platform heels will give you more stability vs. non-platform heels.

The thicker the strap on the front to the heel, the easier it will be to walk in the shoes.

Beginner tips and tricks:

  1. Start small; smaller heels will become your best friend
  2. Learn to strut; basically, you have to teach yourself how to walk all over again
  3. Walk heel to toe
  4. Small baby steps are the key
  5. If you have to walk on stairs ONLY put the ball of your foot on the step and hold onto the railing.
  6. Improve your posture; chin up, shoulders pushed back, and head high
  7. Pretend the world is your catwalk, and visualize that you are walking in a straight line
  8. Practice makes perfect
  9. Make sure the shoe fits
  10. Break you heels in
  11. Learn to stand; by that I mean your feet will get tired very easily. To stop this take the third position like in ballet and put the pressure on your foot one at a time. That way you will be able to stand for longer.
  12. If your feet still hurt from wearing heels wear cushions or insoles

First blog post

Hey, my name is Eshue and this is me coming out….Well not like that but into the blogosphere. I am ready to explore the world and getting into the swing of things.

This blog is going to be a little different that other blogs as I am going to keep it very basic. As to me, the content is more important since it makes the blog worth reading, which is rare in the rise of Instagram. I will continuously strive to create interesting content and avoid becoming a slave to generic posts.

I invite all of my readers to join me in my exciting life adventures as an independent, financially unstable college student who is entering my twentieth year of life.
