One Two Lash The World’s First Magnetic Fake EyeLashes

One Two Lash The World’s First Magnetic Fake EyeLashes By Barbies Beauty Bits

Long luscious lashes are what a lot of us are seeking, but getting there easily is another story.  While there are many mascaras out there like Too Faced Better Than Sex that will give you the length and volume, seeking more like what you can get from fake eyelashes is what most of us desire on those special occasions. BUT getting them on is another story, more so for me because I am farsighted.

Yes, starring at a computer all day has really affected my eyesight and long story short a few months ago for an event I decided to step up my game with fake lashes! NOT, I ended up getting glue in my eyes, as unfortunately you can’t wear your glasses and apply false lashes at the same time.

So what is a girl to do? Well, what about magnetic lashes? Yes, that is right, Katy Stoka, the founder of One Two Lash, has the solution with her Magnetic eyelashes or does she?  A friend of mine had these and I asked her about them.  She was kind enough to give me a set that she had not used yet for me to try out as she had not had any luck getting them on and thought I could help, so I decided to give it a try!

So if you want to find out how to use and my thoughts and tips on the Magnetic One Two Lash continue reading

About The Product
  • There are eight lashes in a box, which equals to two pairs and they cost about $70
  • Each lash has a magnetic on it to hold in place to the other. Hence, you are basically sandwiching your lashes between two ultra-lightweight fiber strip lashes.

Tips For Using
WATCH the video before applying, I did not, and it took me many tries to get the lashes on correctly.

Step 1: If you are farsighted like me, get out your magnifying mirror, as these bad boys do not automatically click on and connect as I thought they would.  They too like glue on lashes require some practice, so don’t try this out for the first time if you are in a hurry.  Next, lay down the microfiber that comes with the set.  PLEASE do this, I did not do this at first, and this cloth is what catches the lashes in case you drop one and trust me when you first start out you will lose one or one of the lashes will fall off.

Step 2: In the video, they recommend applying the lashes as your last makeup step, and yes this is important.  I found it better to apply some mascara first (one that curls your lashes and let it dry).  If you are great with an eyelash curler use that as well; I am not they scare me, therefore I opted for a curling mascara.  But just applying these lashes to a non-mascaraed lash did not do the job.

Step 3: When applying think of each falsie as the piece of bread, and you are going to sandwich your real lash in between the two.

Step 4: You want to do the top lash first, so here is where you will apply the one without the red dot over your eye.

Step 5: Position the top fake lash on top of your natural lashes, so the outside edge lines up with the edge of your natural lash line. The lash is a half lash, so get as close to the corner of your outside eye as possible. AND Don’t blink and leave the top lash where it is, and pick up the bottom lash (the one with the red dot).

Step 6: Without blinking AGAIN, place the bottom lash under your natural lashes, so it meets and connects with the top lash magnet.

So basically, the magnets snap together and hold the strips firmly together, hugging your natural lashes. IT DOES TAKE A WHILE TO GET THIS, and it was luck for me as I never did figure out what I was doing wrong, it just suddenly worked.

Variety Of Lengths
  • Original for daily wear (I don’t recommend these they are hard to see), my mascara did just as good as a job.
  • Bold for a more dramatic look (these I recommend)
  • Accent LASH gives the outer corners of your lash line a subtle (yet flirty) lift.
  • Filler to fill in any gaps, like the singles you get with glue ones.

One Two Magnetic Lash Review By Barbies Beauty Bits

My Opinion 
While I did like the Magnetic One Two Lashes, it took some getting use too.  Also, they are not as flexible as regular glue on falsies, so they don’t bend and curl as closely to your natural lashes.  Hence, they may stick outwards instead of curling up, especially if you don’t line it up just right.  Because of this, I strongly recommend that you do use mascara, this way you can blend the one two lashes in with your mascara covered lashes. Once the fake eyelashes are on, I squeezed the fiber lashes into my own, so they curved up a bit more. (I am not sure if this is recommended, but it is what worked best for me.)

Does The Magnetic Lashes Feel Weird
I thought they would feel weird, but they really didn’t, you do get used to them just as you would glue on lashes.

Final Thoughts
Bottom line, if you follow my blog you know that I only share information on products that I recommend, I rarely share a negative opinion on something.  But I felt that I needed to share my experience with these and to let everyone know that there is a learning curve to these magnetic lashes as they are not as easy as one would hope.  My initial reasoning for wanting to use these was because I thought they would be an simple alternative for glue on lashes, but they were not any less difficult.  I do think the benefit to the one two lash is the fact that they are not as damaging to the eyelash as the glue on lashes.  But if you are one who only wears fake lashes for a special occasion and doesn't have difficulty using the glue on ones, I would not go out and spend the $70 on these.

What Is A Vampire Facial And What Are The Benefits

What Is A Vampire Facial And What Are The Benefits, By Barbies Beauty Bits

While flipping through Instagram, I ran into a post on Vampire Facials and thought WTF, which naturally prompted a little more investigation.  Keep in mind, I am not a health professional; I am sharing this as I was curious and wanted to share my findings. This post while it is educational in nature, it is also for entertainment. By no means is this MEDICAL ADVICE, so check with a medical professional for advice first.

The correct name for this procedure is called a PRP facial, and yes the process does involve blood, my goodness the things we do for beauty.  So how does this work, what is PRP and where are they getting the blood?

What Is PRP
PRP stands for platelet rich plasma.  The plasma, which is used for a PRP procedure, is made up from your blood, so no worries there are not any vampires involved. The use of PRP has been around but just within the last few years has it been implemented for cosmetic purposes.  Primarily PRP has been used for reconstructive surgery to help speed recovery. But now cosmetic dermatologists are using this platelet rich plasma to help repair damaged, aging skin as it can assist in the growth of new collagen and elastin for a more youthful appearance. Not only can this cosmetic procedure be used on the face, but it is employed in other areas of the body as well.

Other Areas Of The Body You Can Microneedle With PRP

  • Neck
  • Décolleté
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Stomach area
  • Legs
  • Back
  • Spider veins
Benefits of Vampire Facials by barbies beauty bits

Benefits of Vampire Facials
  • Improves the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Evens out your skin tone
  • Reduces appearance of pores
  • Can help with healing scars and acne damage
  • Help eliminate undereye issues like puffiness and dark circles
  • Contribute to lessen the appearance of broken capillaries
  • Ultimately giving you more radiant younger looking skin

Where Do They Get The Blood
The blood comes from you by drawing a small amount from your arm.  It is then spun to separate your plasma from your white and red blood cells.  This platelet-rich plasma contains a high concentration of stem cells and other growth factors which ultimately helps with the regrowth of new cells, giving you a younger looking appearance.

How Is PRP Microneedling Performed
No worries, unlike the image in this post it is not injected with a syringe like botox. None the less, keep in mind I am not a medical professional, so some of this information may not be a 100% correct, therefore make sure to check with your local cosmetic specialist for more details. But according to the local spa in my area, they first apply a topical numbing cream to the area. They use a micro needling technique that involves a series of tiny, very fine needles which are passed over the skin, creating micro-injuries which trigger new collagen and elastin synthesis as the skin begins to repair itself naturally.

The prepared PRP solution is applied to the treatment area before and after the micro-needling procedure to ensure that the PRP gets fully absorbed.

Why Does A Vampire Facial Make Me Look Younger
The younger you are, the more concentrated the growth factors your platelets have, but as we age our skin starts to droop and look less supple.  Additionally, as we get older, the production of collagen slows down; this collagen which is a protein production is what gives us firmer looking skin.  Hence with this PRP AKA Vampire procedure, they are reintroducing these growth factors into the skin with hopes it will help to stimulate your collagen production over time.

Final Thoughts
Would you try this? I'm not sure if I would primarily as I'm not convinced if it really works.  I would say one of the positives is unlike other facial rejuvenation methods that this procedure uses naturally occurring ingredients. (Hyaluronic acid which is a chemical normally found within our skin as well as our own platelet rich plasma)

So there you go, there is actually a VAMPIRE Facial.  See below the video I saw of Kim Kardashian which prompted this review in the first place.

13 Plus Genius Techniques To Make Your Thin Hair Thicker

13 Plus Genius Techniques To Make Your Thin Hair Thicker by barbies beauty bits

As we get older, the appearance of our hair changes.  It gets dryer, turns grays and worse, thinner. On average, we lose about 50-100 hairs daily, seems like a lot, doesn't it?  However, if this is happening while you are growing your hair back that’s OK.  But, what if you aren't? Especially, with this modelesque generation portrayed in magazines and reality TV shows, for women, it can be a real blow to your self-esteem.

Despite this thinning hair, it does not sentence you to a life of dull, lackluster tresses. In fact, there are several things that you can do to help your hair appear lush and thick, just by the way you style it and with the products you use.

So, if you want to find out how you can have fuller, lush hair continue reading!

Get With A Stylist
There are many ways to create the illusion of thicker hair. First is to find a stylist, by searching for a hair salon near me, once you find you both can come up with a HAIRtastic plan of action.

how color can make your hair appear thicker by barbies beauty bits

Hair Styles
Add Layers To You Hair: One of the best ways to conceal thinning hair is with a hairstyle that will add a lot of texture and layers, as this can create volume. This may mean trying a shorter style, as the weight of longer hair can pull your hair down and draw more attention to those thinning areas.

Coloring: There are many things you can do with coloring your hair. Your stylist can educate you on the different color options that would be best for you.  But in the meantime, know that color catches light in a variety of ways that can create the illusion of fuller hair, so you most certainly want to discuss all the possibilities with him or her!  For Example...

Go Ombre: Having a darker top portion to your hair and lighter ends is a great trick to helping your locks appear lusher! 

Highlights or Lowlights: One-dimensional hair can make your hair look dull and flat, so by using a combination of lowlights, highlights, or even some color accents, your stylist can do wonders for your hair!

A Part: Having a defined part can draw attention to your fine hair, therefore try a style that does not have a prominent part.

Add Hair Extensions: Clip-in hair extensions are great, they are an easy non-permanent way to add length and volume to your hair.  Additionally, clip in extensions does not damage the hair, unlike other hair alternatives like bonding which can weigh down the hair and cause breakage or even prevent hair growth.  Quality is important when it comes to hair extensions, so if you are looking to get some, you can get $10 off with my link, for Luxy Hair Extensions.

Hair Products
There are some great hair products out there that do live up to their claims.  The key is using them the correct way.

Dry Shampoo: While dry shampoo works amazingly on oil absorption, it is also perfect for adding volume and lift.  The key is to apply the dry shampoo at the beginning at the roots.

Protectors: Hair breakage is a significant contributor to thin hair and combine that with a hot styling tool, your hair is doomed! A quick way to prevent your hair from getting damaged is to apply a heat protector on your hair. In addition to a heat shield, you should invest in a UV protector along with some Moroccan or argan oils.

Hair products that can make your hair fuller by barbies beauty bits

Mouse: A lightweight mouse applied to the roots of your hair can give you a full look! Add that with blow drying your hair upside down at the crown, and you will be the queen of the full hair!

Using Products With The Wrong Ingredients: You want to stay away from products with sulfates in them as these are harsh and drying on the hair and scalp.

Clarifying Shampoo: We all get build up product and by implementing a clarifying shampoo into your beauty regimen, not only will it remove the residue build up but can help to make your hair appear thicker.

Stop Overdoing The Do  
Conditioner:  While conditioner is a necessity if you don’t wash it out thoroughly you can weigh your hair down, and on top of that it can make your hair look oily.

Washing Your Hair Everyday. Keeping your hair clean is important, but washing it too often can thin your hair.  The longer you can go without washing your hair the better!

Don't Over Dry: Blowing drying your hair all the time can cause your hair to become brittle and flat.  Partially air drying your hair will allow your hair to be stronger. Over exposure to heat on your hair can make your hair look dull, as the heat from the dryer causes the cuticles to open, which can lead to frizz and breakage.  A tip to save on drying time, don’t apply conditioner to your entire hair, only apply to the ends of your hair.

Don’t Over Bleach:  While adding color for dimension is essential, over processing your hair will cause it to break off. Hence you don’t want to be bleaching your hair with each visit to the salon.

As you can see, none of these thinning hair remedies are difficult. Simply by learning how to best style your thinning hair while learning to use the correct products, you can do a great deal to give your hair the boost it needs to make it look like it is both voluminous and thick.
