The LadyCode Shop has TWO New Lashes-Just in Time for Valentine’s Day!

If you’re a #LisaLASHES fanatic, you already know this, but today we dropped TWO new styles of lashes. They’re both super flirty so the timing is perfect for Valentine’s Day!

The first style is REBEL. I have a feeling this is going to be a best seller because it is so flawlessly flattering on everyone! It has a cotton band so its super soft on the eyes and doesn’t irritate them all day long.
Look at Lou Schieffelin literally slaying the REBEL lash in this clip from her recent commercial shoot:

Here is a closer look at the lash:

Next up is FIRST CLASS. This lash is perfect for every day slay or stacked on top of eyelash extensions for a little lash boost for a night out. Summer Priester from beauty blog 365 Days of Beauty loves the First Class lash, here’s a snap from her Instagram account.

I also used the FIRST CLASS lash in my most recent makeup tutorial on my channel:

Here’s a closer look at First Class:

Spiky lashes are my favorite because they let enough light in to let your eyes naturally sparkle, giving you a super sweet, wide-eyed look.

Weird Skincare Devices that Saved my Skin!

Last summer.. actually, last year, I traveled almost every weekend and with that travel came stress, bad sleeping and eating habits, and as a result of that lifestyle: acne. I tried different remedies I found online, like blue light therapy, acne creams, etc, but nothing seemed to make a lasting difference.

After doing two mild peels with a phenomenal esthetician to sort of “reset” my skin, I started to see improvements. Her recommended products really helped as well, and I have been using them consistently with great results. Watch my skincare favorites video below to see the products I am loving right now:

I had no idea that TWO devices could make such a big difference on my skin! I knew I was using the right products but I didn’t see a noticeable improvement until I started incorporating these two products into my skincare regimen:

I started to GLOW after trying the Michael Todd Beauty Sonic Eraser Pro in combination with the Vanity Planet Ultimate Skin Spa System. Vanity Planet recently came out with a new and improved Glowspin system, which is similar to the Skin Spa. Vanity Planet has been generous enough to provide a discount code for $100 OFF for Lady Code with the promo code: OPIEGLOW

I’ve been so excited about my new, glowing skin and I’ve been sharing a lot of photos on social media with my results! I know some of you sent me requests with an updated skincare routine so I hope this helps! XOX

LASHLOVE: The Ultimate NYC Lash Spa

I’ve been wearing eyelash extensions on/off for about 3 years now and I seriously love them. I wake up every day feeling totally flawless because the lash extensions make all the difference. When I lived in New York, I always went to Affina on Fulton St to get my lashes done. Affina was awesome because they created the most voluminous lashes and also did bottom eyelash extensions, which was something unheard of to me until I saw it on their menu.

Unfortunately when I moved to Miami I had to kiss my bottom lash extensions goodbye because I can’t find a single place in Miami that can 1) give me lash satisfaction like the lash masterpieces I got at Affina, but 2) I can not find a place in Miami that does bottom lash extensions.

Here is a sample of what eyelash extensions on the top and bottom look like:

As you may know, I spent Christmas in New York and I had to take advantage of the trip so I called Affina to make an appointment. The sweet receptionist let me know that they opened up a lash spa called LashLove on Church St with more flexible hours. They accommodated my busy holiday schedule and I got an appointment at their new lash-only location.

I don’t usually blog about my services but from the minute I walked in I knew I had to share this place with any of you lucky ladies that may live in NYC or frequent the area. They are a full-service lash salon where you can make your lash dreams come true. They have a menu with all of the different types of length, curl, and material to choose from. The pricing is super reasonable as well.

I just got my lashes done today so I can’t comment on how long they last, but when I was going to Affina while I lived in New York, I went in for a refill once every 3-4 weeks, which is longer than usual- I have to get my Miami lashes refilled about every 2 weeks.

The service is amazing and the lash technician who worked on my lashes today was super careful and articulate. I am sensitive to the lash glue, but I didn’t feel a thing! If you are looking for a great place to get eyelash extensions in New York, this is your spot! Thank me later 🙂

My full set from Affina on Fulton in NYC!

For special occasions and beauty looks, I always stack my LisaLASHES from The LadyCode Shop on top of my extensions for an extra glam boost. Gemini and Lit are the perfect lashes for stacking on top of other strip lashes or extensions!

This post is not sponsored by Affina or Lash Love and I paid full price for all of my services.

 

KKW BEAUTY ULTRALIGHT BEAMS REVIEW

I forgot I ordered a KKW Beauty Ultralight Beam set until I got a shipping notification. Why? Because I ordered this on December FIRST. If I remembered, I would have made a scene with customer service because 2 weeks to ship a product from the day you order it is so 2001.

Like most beauty products these days, the mega influencers get a fancy package with every shade of the new product in some super fancy packaging. KKW Beauty wasn’t an exception with her Ultralight beams:

Based on the photos above of these influencers with their top notch packaging, I had a little bit of hope that KKW Beauty had upgraded her potato-chip-bag packaging with a nice box that makes you happy to spend $32 ($40.95 with shipping) for the small cosmetic set.

Nope. This is what we get as paying customers:

Moving on from the packaging let’s take another moment to recognize that shipping is $8.95. For $8.95, I would LOVE to see my package arrive in 3-5 business days, not 2 weeks.

The actual product itself is actually very glamorous. The gloss is gorgeous and stays in place. It’s so pretty applied over any lipstick.

The highlighter was really nice, but the packaging on it is awful. It’s a loose pigment but I have no where to put the pigment on my brush. You can see exactly what I mean in the video below:

Overall, I don’t recommend the product because I think you can find drugstore alternatives for much less than $40.95. It would be gorgeous for $15 or even $25, but definitely not worth the wait.

 

What do you think about the KKW Beauty Ultralight beams?

Goldiluxe Hair Extensions Review | Unboxing | Try On

Hair extensions are one of the things I can’t live without. After losing a TON of my hair to damage from going blonde (and then dying it back), hair extensions give me the length and density I want, along with a side of CONFIDENCE!

Goldiluxe hair extensions is a new line of extensions and they are unique because they have a tape style weft, which makes them lay flat at the roots for a natural attachment.

Watch the hair extension review video below for the full review:

Goldiluxe was generous enough to provide a discount code for us girls in LadyCode! The code is: LADYCODE for $10 off your purchase! You can learn more about Goldiluxe extenions here: https://goldiluxehair.com

I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday!
