Frends headphones dupe | rose gold headphones

Hey guys!
A while ago I fell in love with the Frends Layla headphones. These sell for around €170 (depends on which one you get). Anyway for me €170 for headphones is a lot. I’m the kind of girl who throws them in my handbag on the go and uses them now and then. So 170 euro is a lot. For severel months I looked for a ‘dupe’, as they call it. Finally, after all this time I found headphones just as gorgeous, which I’m going to review for you.

These stunning headphones only cost €30! I got them of aliexpress, which can be a very ‘tricky’ website and you’ll never know what quality you get. That’s why I decided to review these rose gold headphones.

1. The looks
To be honest, I would buy these headphones just for the looks. The rose gold is actually rose gold and is just absolutely beautiful. The details on them are also ON POINT.
Another aspect I love is you can ‘fold’ the headset into a small case, this makes it very travel friendly!
As said, a case comes with it and it’s not the most beautiful one but it’s just very practical.
The wires you can detach which again, is very practical. There are also buttons on the wires to turn the volume up and down and to change the song. This way you don’t have to take your phone/Ipod out to do that.

2. The sound
Disclaimer** I’m not the most technical person.** For me the sound is perfect but i won’t say it’ll be ‘great’ for everyone. if you’re looking for headphones which produce amazing sound I wouldn’t necessarily go for these. I would advice something like beats. I’m not saying the sound is bad, definitely not but it’s not “blowing away amazing”. It’s a normal quality sound I guess.

3. General
In general I think these headphones are a great ‘dupe’ or cheaper alternative. They look absolutely stunning and I love how they sit on the head. So far this is the only alternative I’ve found but it’s definitely a good one. It does take quit some time to get to you because they’re from aliexpress. For me, it was worth the wait.

If you want to buy these headphones you can dot it here.
The good thing about aliexpress is the free shipping and if you didn’t recieve your item you get a full refund. Even if there’s a small problem or you’re not statisfied (with a correct reason) you get a full refund. For me these headphones worked out great and I can’t be more happy about them!

Lots of love

Make up base – aliexpress review

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/2014-New-Mousse-Studio-Face-Care-Make-up-Primer-New-Brand-makeup-base/2044426558.html

make up base

To test this primer I compared it with the nivea post shave balm. (This isn’t an actual primer but it works great!) I applied nivea on the right side of my face and the aliexpress one in the right. I’ll begin with showing how it looked right after I applied my makeup.

What I noticed first is the weird texture of the primer, it’s extremely thick and weird. Beside that the makeup applied the same way as usual. I’m not 100 procent sure but I feel like the nivea side is ‘prettier’ (as in it is better blended en looks better applied). What do you think?
Now I’ll show you how it looked after a complete day.

As you can see my bronzer, highlighter and blush stayed on way better at the aliexpress side, which I’m kind of surprised about! On the other hand if you look closely at my nose it looks awful… I wear glasses and it ‘damaged’ my makeup at the aliexpress side… Here’s a close up–>

So overal I don’t think it’s a bad primer but it’s definitely not the best. It has both positive as negative sides. As the price of nivea is the same I would get the nivea post shave balm.

Riho eyeshadow palette review

Today I’m reviewing an 14 colored eyeshadow palette, hope you like it.

http://www.aliexpress.com/item/2015-Hot-Sale-Professional-14-Warm-Color-Eye-Shadow-Palette-Neutral-Nude-Eyeshadow-Cosmetic-Wholesale-Makeup/32364418310.html

This is the link but you can easily just find it when you look for palettes. It says it has 12 eyeshadows and 2 blushes but I have no idea how you could use any of these eyeshadows as blush… So let’s say you get 14 eyeshadows and a wide range of colors. Let’s get started.

  1. The pigmentation:
    It really depends on the color but in general I would give it a 6/10 because a few are very very good and a few are just bad. As you can see on the swatches, the pink, blue, white and green are not that good. On the other hand the browns and copper shades are very nice!

  2. the packaging:
    There’s not much to say about, they kept it very simple, the only ‘special’ part about it is the back of whole case is a mirror, very large and handy! 6/10

  3. the application and blending:
    This went surprisingly good. The colors are definitely buildable and they blend very good. I think you can create a lot of different looks because of the wide range of colors. The shadows feel nice on the skin and don’t irritate. (and this comes from a person with a very sensitive skin..)  I would give it a 8/10
  4. the smell:
    This might sound weird but for me this is a big thing. Some product smell so bad! And to be honest I feel the same way with this palette, the smell is awful! You don’t smell it when you apply it but when I opened the package the first thing I noticed was the smell. It can get worse but it’s still bad.. I don’t know how to describe it but it’s definitely not nice. 3/10

 

So this was it, I think you get what you pay for and maybe even more but there are for sure better palettes out there. In general I would give this a 6,5/10.
