“Candyfloss” Lace Front Wig [TrendyWigs] Review

I have wanted a lace front wig for a very long time, because you get to change your hairstyle, like ever other wig, but it looks more natural because of the lace hairline! They are on the expensive side ($50 – $400) though and I didn’t want to buy one impulsively. Recently I had saved up enough money to finally buy one! I would like to share my experience with you and I hope it will be of any help. ✲゚。.(✿╹◡╹)ノ☆.。₀:*゚✲゚*:₀。

I purchased my wig on TrendyWigs, which is a store specialised in lace front wigs. Their collection consists of a wide range of styles and colors. Their price range is between $90 and $120, but I paid a lot less for mine with a discount code, which I will leave down below!

Before ordering I had a few questions and contacted customer service. They replied within one working day with straight forward and understandable answers.

The wig I ordered is called Candyfloss and is currently enlisted with the price of $89.99 instead of the original price of $158. I am not sure wether this is an ongoing sale or not. The pictures down below are used on the site to display the lace front wig.

 

 

Candyfloss has a wavy texture and it’s approximately 14″ inches long, which is about 35 – 36 centimeters. The wig is an ombre of black and sweet orange-pink. You can style it however you want to, because the wig is heat resistant!

I made my purchase on the 13th of July 2017 and it got shipped out of Hong Kong on the 16th. I received my package on the 18th. The shipping was handled by DHL Express, which was lovely because that’s always fast. And the best of all; you don’t even have to pay for it, because TrendyWigs has free shipping!

The wig was carefully packed in a little box with the logo of the company on it. That box was also put in cardboard box, I assume for extra protection. My package also consisted of a few gifts you automatically get with your order; a wig brush, two wig caps and a few bobby pins.

My first impression of the wig was “Wow! It is really really soft!“. It is the softest wig I own and it feels natural although it is made out of synthetic fibers. The wig is also very thick and because of the cap structure you can’t see through. The ombre effect is done beautifully and it doesn’t look streaky at all. It has a gradual change of color. The only thing that disappointed me a bit was the front of the wig. The wig is longer at the front as you can see on the display pictures, but in reality it’s even longer. At first I thought it looked really stupid and wanted to cut it even, but I was afraid to mess it up! I am glad I decided not to, because I am fine with how it is now.

I am very happy with the purchase I made at TrendyWigs and I will definitely come back for another purchase! Their products are high-quality, shipping is fast and customer service is how it should be. I recommend their store to you if you are looking for a not too expensive and high-quality lace front wig. They carry a good variety of wigs, so I am sure you will find one that suits you! Thank you for reading and see you next time!

Long Long Tail Circle Lens Review

Hello everybody! Welcome back to another blog post.

Today I’ll be reviewing the following lenses from Long Long Tail:

Note: I won Madonna Violet in their Valentines giveaway and Dali Extra Gray & Black Cat were kindly sponsored by them! However, everything in this review is honest and not sugar-coated!

Madonna Violet

The contest was held on the 14th of February and they contacted me through e-mail on the 16th telling me I was one of the winners. I was given a few points to make the purchase, but I had trouble with selecting my shipping option. I was supposed to select K-Packet, but it would only let me select Express shipping. I contacted LLT and adressed the issue and the problem was resolved after that. I placed my order on the same day.

Ordered: 16th of February 2017

Shipped out: 19th of February 2017

Delivered: 24th of February 2017

My opinion

✨Comfort✨ 10/10
I didn’t feel anything sting when putting these lenses in and they haven’t bothered me at all while wearing them. These lenses feel thinner than other circle/colored lenses I have worn before, which is a plus point for me, but if you have never worn lenses before putting them in might be a little bit more difficult. I don’t have anything to complain about.
⠀⠀
✨Colour✨ 8/10
I love the look the voilet/purple color adds to my eyes. The lenses cover my natural eye color (green) perfectly! They are not very enlarging, but they are colored contacts and not circle lenses, so enlargment isn’t their purpose.

Just like my first purchase, I was given points to buy my lenses at their store. I had no trouble with selecting K-Packet as my shipping courier this time which I am glad about!

My opinion on Dali Extra Gray

✨Comfort✨ 10/10
The same goes for these lenses! They are also really comfortable and I accidently fell asleep while wearing them, but I didn’t feel anything sting when I woke up. Lovely! But please be careful yourself though, because lenses aren’t supposed to be worn while being asleep! This can damage your eyes, because not enough oxygen can be let through.
⠀⠀
✨Colour✨ 7/10
I always have wanted gray lenses and lenses with a brown rim, so I was pretty excited to try these out! The gray shows up really minimal on my green eyes, but it makes a lovely mixture of both colors. You only really notice the gray when you stand close to the mirror. The brown rim makes it look more natural, which is amazing for daily life use! I did have the idea though that the brown rims weren’t entirely symmetrical. This was a downside for me. Overall I am happy with these and I will definitely make a lot of cool looks with them ♥

My opinion on Black Cat

✨Comfort✨ 10/10

They are very comfortable and I didn’t feel anything sting while putting them in. The same comfort level as the two previous lenses!

⠀⠀
✨Colour✨ 5/10

I have light eyes (green) and the black didn’t show up that well on my eyes! A disappointment for me, but I am sure they will show up way better on someone with darker eyes. Black Cat made it look like I had a thicker rim then usual, which was really pretty, but sadly not the effect I was aiming for!

Overall experience

Working with Long Long Tail was very pleasant and I wish them all the best with their lovely company. The customer service is great; they respond very quickly and their English is good. I will definitely make a purchase of my own in the future and if LLT wants to work with me again I won’t turn it down! The only thing that bothered me was the lack of different lens sizes, as far as I know they only sell lenses with a diameter of 14.0 and 14.2mm. I usually wear lenses with a diameter between 14.5 and 15.0mm to mimic that ‘dolly‘ effect. I would give the shop a 10/10 if they expanded their diameter range. Thank you for reading and have a nice day ♡

 

 

Cospicky Review – “Yukine”

[Link to Cospicky homepage]

Today I am back with my very first review! I would like to start off saying that this isn’t sponsored and everything is 100% my very own opinion. So let’s begin! (ノ≧ڡ≦) Teehee~!

yukine noragami

Do you see this beautiful human being? Well, that’s Yukine from Noragami. I highly suggest you should watch it, because I love the anime so much. The manga is pretty cool as well! Yukine is definitely my favourite character from the show and I really wanted to cosplay him. I searched around eBay and Amazon trying to find the perfect jacket for him. But I just couldn’t find the perfect one. Until I saw Cospicky was selling it as well. I have ordered from them before, so I knew everything would be nice and neat!

This is how the jacket was advertised in their shop. It looks really accurate to Yukine’s jacket, which is definitely a requirement if you want to cosplay as someone. So I bought it!

I did a lovely photo shoot with my friend Anna (go and give her a follow!), so you can see what it looks like in real life.

Shipping: 3.5/5 stars

The shipping was a bit slower than usual, because of Chinese New Year. It took about a month to get to me! But that wasn’t a problem, since I didn’t need it until April. I have ordered from them before and I can say it is usually much faster!

Accuracy: 4.5/5 stars

As I mentioned earlier; I love how accurate it is. Good job Cospicky! The only thing which kinda bugs me, is that it doesn’t have a zipper. But the fact that it has pockets, makes it up for me!

Price: 4/5 stars

I have to admit that Cospicky is one of the more expensive cosplay shops out there. Their prices are sometimes a bit over the top, but they always have some sort of action going on with a discount code that goes with it. That’s what I did with my jacket and I got 14% discount! You can follow their Instagram for updates on discounts and giveaways.

Overall: 4.2/5 stars

I am really happy with my purchase! They never let me down and I will order from them again in the future.

Thanks for reading and see you in my next blog post! (◡‿◡✿)。・:*:・゚★,。・:*:・゚☆
