I was finally able to get my hands on these eyelash curlers and couldn't wait to compare them! To be honest ladies they are amazing! Are they worth the money? Most definitely! BTW they re about $20 each. If you do some shopping around online you can find them for way less. 

Ok so even though I LOVE these two eyelash curlers I wouldn't go as far as saying that you can't get the same kind of curl from a regular eyelash curler. I use to love my MAC e.c. but it took me a lot more work to get the same kind of curl with it. I've tried revlon and e.l.f. and they all give you a nice curl but these two are just easier to use. I get a nice curl in less time and with less effort. 

Now to be honest I feel lucky because I can use both. My eye shape allows me to use both. They curl every single eyelash from one end to the other with one try. Unlike other curlers I have to keep repositioning the curler to make sure I get all of my lashes. So a lot of people seem to ask which one is better and to be honest I find them to be the same. I feel the only difference is the shape. If you have more of an Asian like shaped eye the Shu uemura is probably better for you. Its shape is noticeably flatter, it doesn't curve as much as others. 

If you have rounder eyes the Sheseido is probably better for you. To be honest they don't look any different from any other curler. They don't have more or less hinges, they don't require special instructions, they look just like any other curler. What I did notice is that my curl lasts longer and they just open up my eyes even more. If you have the money go ahead and invest in one they are amazing. If you can't spend that kind of money trust me you can get the same look with a regular eyelash curler, it will just take a little more time and effort.  

Garnier B.B. Cream

So my curiosity finally got the best of me and I gave in and bought a B.B. Cream. So I've been hearing a lot about these creams. A lot of people seem to like them. Well I looked into high end and low end creams and they all seem to claim to do the same thing. They're suppose to help even out skin tone some claim to help heal certain skin issues and they're suppose to have decent coverage. Some claim to to be and all in one. They claim to moisturize, conceal and give coverage. 

Well, I chose to go with a less expensive cream. To be honest it wasn't that cheap. Luckily I got it on sale. I have some mixed feelings about this product. I tried this out for about a week. I tried applying it with my beauty blender and a brush, it applies nicely either way. It gave me light coverage. It feels light and once your skin absorbs it it feels natural. 

Now the reason I only used it for about a week is  because I noticed my cheeks were starting to get more irritated. My usual face makeup routine requires concealer on my cheeks to even out the redness. Its not bad but I don't like the redness. So I also tried this cream with concealer and setting powder and I hated it! 

Now I wouldn't go as far as saying I won't purchase this again only because I found great use for it. I've been on a hunt for the right foundation color that matches my chest. Yes I said my chest. I don't like matching my foundation to my neck I feel like it still makes you look like you're wearing a mask. With that said I am now using this cream on my neck and it works great! I like that it blends my foundation color to my neck to my chest. Its a great median. 

So if you re looking to try B.B. Cream go ahead just be sure to buy it somewhere that allows you to return it, incase it doesn't work out for you. Just keep in mind it's not for all skin types. If you prefer full coverage makeup this probably isn't for you either. I can't speak for the higher end creams but this B.B. Cream offers medium coverage at the most.
