Alibele Malaysian Virgin Curly Lace Frontal w/Bundles | Initial Hair Review + 1 Week Update!

I recently reviewed This lovely Malaysian Curly Lace Frontal w/Bundles from Alibele on AliExpress! For all of you how know about AliExpress, you know that this is the Hair Capitol of the WORLD. Sometimes you get AMAZING hair, and sometimes you missed it by a long shot. It's honestly trial and error when finding the perfect company on AliExpress. This is why I STRONGLY consider reading the reviews and looking at review photos before making a purchase such as this. 

Now, I received this hair complimentary for my honest review, so here it goes:

This hair came out of the pack very curly, and it seemed quite thin. I had a lace frontal and 3 bundles, but I was honestly afraid it would not make a full wig. I was pleasantly surprised though as the more I ran my fingers through it after washing it, the thicker the hair got.

It did not to anything crazy after washing it, so that was a plus! I also bleached the lace frontal to ensure that it matched my skin tone, which was also very easy. The hair did not dry out, but I did accidentally get some bleach on some of the root, but that's an easy fix with temporary hair dye!

I spent a few hours making and customizing my unit, applied some göt2b Glued to my hair, slapped on the wig, and it came out like this:

P.S. (Let me know if you want me to make a Lace Frontal Wig Tutorial)!!

I honestly must say that I am impressed with how this unit turned out. I have had many issues in the past with major shedding and matting with Malaysian curly hair, but this one has been very good!

See It in Action!!

1 WEEK UPDATE:

I have noticed that this hair loves to be two strand twisted when it's bedtime. I can sleep with it up in a bun, but I found that it flattens out the curls. ON THE BRIGHT SIDE, in the morning, I like to refresh the curls by taking my Kérastase Cleansing Conditioner Curl Idéal and put some in a spray bottle. I then add warm water and shake it up to mix the two, then I spray it all over my hair as I'm running my fingers through it. The shedding is very minimum, too.

After spraying, the curls immediately bounce back! For even more fullness, I take a wide-toothed comb and run through the hair to fluff it out. All-together, this is about a 10-15 minute process depending on how OCD you are about evenness lol.

I also love how natural the lace frontal looks! It really mimics my natural hairline. I do think I sewed it on a little far back, so I do have to tug it forward a bit, but the göt2b Glued really does the trick when it comes to holding it down! Here's how it looks with two buns:

Space Buns!!

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Overall, I do have to maintain it daily, especially if I decide to sleep in it, but it's well worth it! I am satisfied with the quality of the hair, and I definitely plan on taking very good care of it! I hope this unit lasts me a long time, and again, I want to thank Alibele for giving me the opportunity to review this hair for you guys! I will keep you in the loop on how it holds up! (I'll also be wearing it in most of my videos 😉). If you're looking for some new hair, definitely check out Alibele, and look around on AliExpress!!

What do you think about this hair? Have you bought any hair on AliExpress? What are your thoughts?

Marilyn Who? - How I Got This Makeup Look!

By now you all should know that I am a sucker for makeup. It's quite the addiction to have, I must say... I know I have not been doing makeup tutorials lately, and I apologize for that. College, Part-time jobs, and YouTube streaming do not go well together! Now, it is summer, and I can finally get my groove back! (Now I'm thinking about that movie "How Stella got her groove Back")... 😑😑😑🙈

ANYWAYS!

 

 This is an impromptu look that I mastered in a matter of.. Well.. An hour.

I came up with this look by accident, and my friends told me that I looked like the black Marilyn Monroe! (must have been the blonde hair lol).

I haven't decided on if I'm making a video tutorial yet, but I will tell you all of the products I used to achieve this look, and hopefully you too can achieve this same look, which makes me want to start a new trend... (Stay Tuned for the contest info soon)!

 

This oil is as good for your face as any other face oils and contains 15 essential plant oils to moisturize the skin and create flawless foundation application and that dewy finish we all crave! 

TIP: I like to mix in my foundation and the oil together, then apply it with a stippling brush for a more natural look.

 

This luxury foundation gives FULL coverage in 1-2 dots on the face! It's so thick that it'll cover anything, so be careful of how much you use. In this instance, a little really goes a long way.

 

I first used the eye shadow "Guilt Trip" to line my crease above the eye lid and "Tryst" to fill it in. Then I used the eye shadow "Suede" directly over it and blended to my brow bone with a fluffy brush.

 

This is one of my favorite palettes! It's clay infused, and It smells amazing too!! - Almost smells like chocolate 😁. After priming my lid, I used the color "Whisper" on half of my lid closest to the bridge of my nose. I then used "Crush" on the other half of the lid and blended it for a smoother look. I finally used "Heartbreaker" to darken the outer edge of my eyes and bottom lash line for a more dramatic look.

 
  • LASHES IN A BOX - The Makeup Show ✨EXCLUSIVE✨ (Available November 2016)👀

I feel super special about this product because I won tickets to The Makeup Show NYC a few weeks back, and I had the opportunity to network with multiple beauty vendors and purchase products at a HUGE discount! I also had access to The Makeup Show "only" exclusive items such as these beautiful 10 pair sat of handmade lashes by LASHES IN A BOX! They will not be available to the public until November 2016, so I'm going to make these babies last!

 

To accent my lashes even more (Not that they need it anyways), I used this creamy waterproof eyeliner to give my eyes that sexy, sultry look that will make everyone have a double take!  (Use on top and bottom lash line).

 

This palette is a DREAM! Every color you could ever want or need is in this very palette. I used the color "Nectar" to highlight my forehead, under eyes, cheekbones, bridge of my nose, chin, and slightly under the hollows of my cheeks. I also topped it with "Ben Nye Banana Powder to set. I then let that sit while I moved on to the contouring, and for that, I used a different product first: the L.A. Girl PRO Conceal HD Concealer in the color "Chestnut." I used this to contour around my hairline, sides of my nose, hollows of my cheeks, and jawline for definition. I then took my contouring brush to blend it in. After that, I went back to the NYX palette and used the color "Tan" and went back over the same areas to set the contour (make sure to BLEND)! I also went back with a clean face brush to wipe away any excess power from the banana powder.

 

I used this to blend in all of my highlighting and contouring I just did, so I could get a even look. I would recommend just a soft fluffy brush to blend. I then finished it off when the powder blush in the color "Raizin."

 

It's matte; It's waterproof. It's vibrant with color. What more could you want? I was skeptical at first of this lipstick because of the cheap price, but I am so glad I was proved wrong. I prefer this brand over my other upscale lipsticks (and that's saying A Lot). Another thing is the bright purple: I'm not one to venture out on colors, especially unnatural ones such as "Trickster," but I found that it fits me. The goal is: "Wear the lipstick, but don't let the lipstick wear you." So instead of going for Marilyn's bold and timeless red, I shot for Tika's "new and vibrant purple!"

 

Nobody better EVER walk out of their house without setting their makeup. If you do, I WILL FIND YOU & I WILL SPRAY YOU... This particular spray lets your makeup last all day/night without any shine (this is for all you matte finish lovers our there). You also have other options for the Dewy Finish setting spray. This was my final step in my makeup process.

 

Don't forget the BOMB ASS Wig that started it all!! I just received this baby from www.luffywig.com complementary for my honest and unbiased review, and honestly, I thought blonde would not look good on me, but it works, so I think I'll rock it for awhile! 😏  All I needed to do was wand curl it a bit to give it life and BOOM! Black Marilyn! 

I hope this article helped you some, and I would LOVE to see your interpretation of this look! 

 

Until Next Time...
