Warming Up to Falsies with the Ardell Double Up Lash 204

Loyal MB readers might remember a certain post from 11.01. of this year and it was called the 2014. Beauty Agenda. In that post I've made a total of ten beauty resolutions I intend on sticking to this year. Beauty Resolution #6 was to finally attempt mastering falsies. Before that, I've never ever tried any kind of falsies and was actually terrified of them. To be honest, rarely have I seen falsies look beautiful or appropriate throughout my life on other people I know. Most were ridiculously in yer face but when I've dabbled into the world of most popular falsies in the States, well…those completely changed my perspective on things. It was on my birthday on 2nd of July when I've applied falsies for the first time in my life and – I loved them! It's been a love affair with Ardell ever since. Today I am presenting Ardell Double Up Lash 204 as a part of the look I've created for the theBalm's Nude'tude Eyeshadow Palette review, you can read here. I've received so many compliments on the look as a whole so thank you, that was really lovely of you all – I'm so lucky to have such amazing readers! My go to falsies I find am able to rock almost on a daily basis are the Ardell Natural Demi Wispies which I'll demonstrate in one of my posts as well. I've noticed how women look at me when I wear them and I even received a flattering compliment from a lady wondering if those were my natural ones, bless her precious soul. This time, however, I have a pair that screams out glamour. Ardell Double Up Lash 204 have twice the amount lashes for a more dramatic look. 

Vjerni MB citatelji se sigurno sjecaju posta koji datira od 11.01., znaci od samog pocetka ove godine i nazvala sam ga Beauty Planer za 2014. U tom postu sam donijela ukupno deset beauty odluka kojih sam se najozbiljnije vec tada namjeravala drzati tokom tekuce godine. Beauty Odluka #6 je bila da napokon pokusam ovladati laznim trepavicama. Prije toga zaista nikada nisam ni pokusala da se poblize upoznam sa njima i prilicno su me plasile. Ruku na srce, stvarno se u samo par navrata mogu sjetiti uspjesno nosenih laznih trepavica. Na prste jedne ruke mogu nabrojati kada sam vidjela odlicnu izvedbu istih koje su bile lijepo uklopljene u cjelokupni make-up i mozda me taj siromasni procenat plasio. U biti, bilo me strah neuspjeha no kada sam eventualno pokusala sa najpopularnijim laznim trepuskama u SAD-u, eh onda…tek onda mi se iz korijena promijenilo misljenje o laznim trepavicama u globalu. Sjecam se da sam 02.07. ove godine, na vlastiti rodjendan upotrijebila lazne trepavice po prvi put u zivotu i – zaljubila sam se u njih! Danas vam prezentujem Ardell Double Up trepavice model 204 koje su bile dio look-a koji sam kreirala za recenziju theBalm Nude'tude palete sjena za oci (ako niste, mozete je pogledati ovdje). Ovom prilikom se zelim zahvaliti na divnim komplimentima koje ste mi uputile, bas ste drage i divne – sretna sam sto vas imam za citateljice! Inace, meni najlakse za nositi lazne trepuske su model Ardell Natural Demi Wispies i toliko mi se dopadaju da imam samopouzdanja da ih nosim i tokom dana. Predstaviti cu i njih u jednom od narednih postova. Primjetila sam kako me zene gledaju kada ih nosim – cak je jedna draga dama pomislila da se mozda radi o mojim prirodnim trepavicama. Imala sam zelju da je izljubim! No, za ovaj put sam se odlucila za par trepavica koje su cisti glamur. Ardell Double Up trepavice model 204 (9,90KM kod Lilocosmetics Kakanj), koje pruzaju dvostruko veci efekat za uistinu dramatican izgled.

This falsies style features a double layer style which gives you a fuller, thicker look. These indeed are reusable. After use, you just remove the glue remains with a Bioderma or any other make-up remover – very gently. Than disinfect with some alcohol and they are ready to be used again. Made of 100% sterilized human hair (a bit freaky but I get it, that's why these look soo natural and believable), each lash strip is knotted and feathered by hand to achieve the highest quality. The way I apply my Double Up Lash 204 is that I firstly remove them gently from their mold and I align the band with my natural upper lash line to estimate how I should place them. Eyes and eyelashes should be clean so they are make-up and oil free before you do anything with your falsies. Than I slowly squeeze out some of my Ardell Lashgrip Dark Adhesive for strip lashes so a bubble forms at the opening. I follow by carefully running the falsies base strip over that glue bubble. Than I wait for approx 10-15 seconds so the glue becomes tacky and than I drop the eyelashes as closer to my natural lash line as possible. I start at the center and than adjust the sides so they have a snug fit with the skin. I also like using the Ardell Lash Applicator which you turn upside down f- just like pictured and use it for dropping the falsies along your natural lash. Pretty cool contraption, I must say. If you get some of the glue around the lash band, just clean it with a make-up remover on a q-tip and fix your make up so you're ready to go. I love how thick, voluminous and rich Double Up Lash 204 looks like. Very lush and glamorous. Have you tried any Ardell falsies and if so, which are your favorite ones?

Konkretno ovaj stil trepavica ima dupli sloj koji pruza puniji, deblji look uz mnogo vise volumena. I zaista, istina je da se ove lazne trepuske mogu iznova koristiti. Nakon upotrebe uklonite ostatke ljepila uz pomoc Biodermine micelarne ili nekog skidaca sminke po vasoj volji – ali jako njezno, da ne ostetite trepavice. Potom ih volim dezinfikovati uz malo alkohola i spremne su za ponovnu upotrebu. Nije ih tesko odlijepiti sa kapka pri skidanju i mozete ih ociscene i pripremljene za novu upotrebu drzati u posebnoj kutijici (da prasina ne pada po njima). Ove trepavice su napravljene od 100% ljudske dlake (malo freaky ali sada mi je jasno zasto izgledaju tako uvjerljivo). Svaki pramen trepavica je rucno postavljen u cvorice i pramencici su rucno rasporedjeni duz trakice koja je baza trepavica. Nacin na koji nanosim svoje Double Lash trepavice model 204 jeste da ih prije svega njezno odlijepim sa postolja na kojem dolaze. Potom ih bez ljepila prislonim uz gornju liniju trepavica, kako bih procijenila na kojoj poziciji i pod kojim uglom mi najvise odgovaraju. Oci i trepavice bi trebale biti potpuno ciste od sminke i ulja prije nego pocnete nanositi trepavice. Zatim njezno istisnem malo Ardell Lashgrip ljepila za trepavice u komadu (crna boja/ 6,80KM kod Lilocosmetics Kakanj). Istisnem ljepilo tako da se formira mali baloncic na vrhu aplikatora i preko njega oprezno prelazim bazom trepavica dok ih ne oblozim cijelom duzinom. Sacekam 10-15 sekundi da se ljepilo mrvicu zgusne i onda ih postavim sto blize ivici mojih prirodnih trepavica. Pocnem fokusirajuci se na centar i onda namjestam ivice trepavica kako bi sto bolje prijanjale uz kozu. Takodjer volim koristiti Ardell aplikator za trepavice (8,20KM kod Lilocosmetics Kakanj). Koristim ga tako sto ga okrenem naopacke – upravo kako je prikazan na slici i njim pridrzavam trepavice umjesto prstima dok ih namjestam uz rub vlastitih. Prilicno je zgodna mala spravica. Ukoliko se ljepilo razmaze izvan linije baze trepavica, samo ga uklonite skidacem sminke na stapicu za usi. Nije tesko potom popraviti sminku na tom mjestu i to je to. Svidja mi se gustoca koju mi pruzaju ove trepavice te kako cine oci sirom otvorenim i vizualno vecim. Da li ste nekada isprobale Ardell trepavice i ako jeste – koji je vama najdrazi model?

    SUPER TI STOJE! OVO SU NAJLEPŠE OČI I TREPAVICE KOJE SAM VIDELA! Već 2 sata guglam i tražim koje da kupim. Puno komentara na ružne trepavice a tebi nijedan. Ljubomora je to. Idem odmah da kupim ovakve. Hvala za ovaj post.

      Vau, hvala draga Eva od srca na ovim divnim riječima! ❤
      Ja sam prezadovoljna Ardell trepavicama tako da nisam ni imala potrebu tražiti neke druge. Veoma su kvalitetne a konkretno ovaj model baš pristaje obliku očiju poput mojih.
