FOTD: Taking the falsies out for a spin

Edit: Pic of dress after the jump!

A dear friend of mine from church got married last Saturday and for the wedding dinner I decided to bring on the glam and use my iNuovi half-lashes. As false lashes go, they're pretty tame and natural looking when your eyes are open, until you blink. Then for a brief moment your have full-on fluttery lashes! Think of them as false-lash-lite. =P

I found them incredibly easy to put on, taking me only one try and about 5 minutes total. Now the temptation to slap them on for EVERY evening function (and believe me, I have quite a few) is unberably tempting.

I'm also considering taking advantage on iNuovi's current offer of "Buy 2 boxes of Prolashes and get one box" free to stock up on these lashes, and maybe give a few other more dramatic ones a try. The offer is only valid at the iNuovi store in Sunway Pyramid and will end June 18 (that's this Thursday!).

Now for the rest of my look:

Eyes
Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadows in Busy Signal (a deep shimmery brown) and Carte Blanche (a mid-toned gold-based brown)
L'Oreal Colour Appeal Star Secrets Quad in Penelope Cruz - Dark brown and gold shades
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner
Lancome Oscillation Mascara

Cheeks
Benefit Coralista
Benefit Ten to contour

Lips
Benetint as a base
Silk Naturals kisser slicker gloss in Maiden (dupe of MAC Slimshine in Bare)

Edit (June 16,2009): As per request here's a better shot of the halter-neck dress. Forgive the odd angle it's a candid shot by a friend - cropped out the other ladies in the pic in case they're not eager to feature on the blog. =P

Kahani said...

lol with all the requests to see my dresses I think I should invest in a tripod and start me a fashion blog...

Jenn said...

The falsies look AMAZING on you!! You look hawt!! ;)

lol, the first thing i wanted to say when i saw your pic was, "show me your dress"!! hahaha!! :D

yes you should totally start a fashion blog... fashion disasters like me need help!! hahaha!! :D

Kahani said...

I'm seriously considering it! I don't think I'm a fashion forward person (actually with my vintage kick, more like fashion backward) but I know what I like.

It will obviously be a good deal less updated than my beauty blog though. Or I'd dieee!

Shuu said...

woots you looks gorgeous! :D
Yeah I agree with Jenn ^_^ You should show the nice blue dress. It is indeed a simple yet glamorous dress (I happened to see your dress in some photos uploaded by Jeremiah lol)
