Geisha Wigs Review: Chocolate Orange

Hello everyone!

I know its been a little bit since my last post but my laptop screen was smashed! luckily I have another one now so I'm back!
Today I am reviewing Chocolate Orange from Geisha Wigs. here is the stock photo:

Colour: this wig is gorgeous! One side is a light blonde and the other side is a lovely orangey-red. When it comes to looking real I think this is one of the most real looking wigs I have, Its thick and not too shiny and looks just like real hair! Also, the stock photo is exactly what it looks like when it arrives.

Quality: My favourite thing about Geisha Wigs is the quality for price, You might think because they are so reasonably priced that they lack quality but that is not true! This wig is so thick and while it isn't real hair it is made with high quality synthetic hair. You can use heat up to 180 degrees on this wig as well so you can straighten or curl as long as its under 180 degrees! Also all of the wigs from Geisha Wigs come with adjustable straps inside the cap so if you have a smaller head don't worry it'll fit.

Price: This wig is £24 which is really cheap for such a beautiful good quality wig.

Wait time/Postage: This wig was not in stock when I ordered so I did have to pre-order it. On the website it does say it can take up to 14 days to receive your wig, however I received mine in about 7 days. The Owner Maria sent me an email once my wig had been dispatched with a tracking number. I also emailed her a few days after I ordered I emailed Maria and she responded within an hour!

Overall: I love this wig, its a great quality wig, and the price just cant be beat. Of all the wigs I have from Geisha Wigs I have gotten the most compliments while wearing this one. No one believes its a wig! Geisha Wigs offer a lot of in-stock wigs as well as wigs you can pre order which can take up to 21 days depending on which wig it is. If you would like to purchase this wig you can order it here
Here are some photos of me in Chocolate Orange:

Geisha Wigs Review: Wren

Hello everybody!

Today I am back with another review, this time it is for Indie UK based Company, Geisha Wigs. Basically my best friend told me about Geisha Wigs, and they are pretty big in the Tumblr community. So I ordered the wig called Wren it was £20 plus p+p which brought it to £24.50. Price wise I thought it was really cheap considering most prices of wigs. Now my wig was out of stock, when this happens you have to pre-order your wig which is what I did. On the website it does say it can take up to 14 working days. From the day I ordered to the day I received my wig it was 17 working days which is about right considering processing times.

When I received my wig I could not be happier! It looks exactly like the photo if not better, and it's so natural! No one has asked If I am wearing wig. It's not shiny like some wigs and its really light so you shouldn't sweat too bad! Overall I really love this wig so much I've actually ordered a few others recently! 

Here are two photos of them on me. I think this my new go to wig! If you would like to purchase this wig you can do so here: or if you would like to browse their huge wig selection you can do so here:  ALSO If you use ASHLEYGEISHA (in all caps) you can get 20% off your wig!

MAC Russian Red Lipstick Review

Hello Everyone,
So for my first review back I thought I would do a review on Russian Red by MAC. Generally speaking I think some MAC products are worth the money and other times I think its rather a waste. 

MAC Russian Red in its original box

Russian Red in natural light

Now I am a big lover of Red lipstick, so I am very picky when it comes to a good red lippy. I found Russian red really easy to apply and very beautifully Matte. The lipstick is gorgeous on but it's staying power on the other hand is questionable. I found that this lipstick did not have the staying power that it should have for the price you pay for it, at a steep £15 I feel it fell a bit short. While I loved the colour and the Matte-ness of the Lipstick I felt it did not live up to its price tag. 

PROS: Matte, easy to apply, very pigmented, and well its MAC.
CONS: Pricey, and does not stay as well as other cheaper lipsticks.

Overall, I like this lipstick but I don't think I would repurchase it unless the price was lower because I don't think its worth its hefty price tag. Have you tried MAC lipsticks? Which is your favourite?

Bourjois Rouge Edition in shade 07 review

Hey Guys!

I'm really sorry for the lack of posting lately, but my laptop has been playing up and not letting me go on but hopefully it is sorted now!
Today I will be reviewing Bourjois Rouge Edition Lipstick in shade 07.
First off, I loved this color lipstick because it reminds me a lot of MAC "Girl About Town" and I love that lipstick! it is a very nice blue based pink lipstick that I think would suit alot of different peoples skin tones.
I purchased this product from my local tesco, it was on offer for £5.99 but normally it is £7.99.
I really found that this product had a really great pay off, and lasted for ages! I really love this shade for summer, and I cant wait to wear it more often!

Overall I really love this product and I think alot of people would too! have you tried this product? or anything similar? let me know in the comments! xx

my march favorites! (so far)

Hey guys,
so today I thought I would list a few of my new products that I really like. I've bought quite a few things but these are my favorites thus far!

1. Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in shade 004 black
    First off this was £2.99 in Superdrug and comes in a couple different shades. The shade I purchased was 004 black. I know this may sound weird but I actually don't like this product as an eye brow pencil, I like it as a lip liner! I own way too many red lipsticks, and not enough darker shades. So what I do is use it as a lip liner and then blend it out with red lipstick and it goes a really beautiful dark red! Also I should add that this pencil is NOT black, it is a dark brown, I'm not sure how its even labeled as black? but anyways it works great for the whole "red velvet lipstick" that I love!

2. Barry M Eyeshadow Brush
   This brush was £2.99 in Superdrug, and its worth that and a bit more! I don't really like eye shadow brushes as I am too picky with what I like in a brush. But this is REALLY good and applies eye shadow beautifully! Also at that price how could you go wrong?

3. MUA blush in shade 4
  This Make Up Academy blush was £1 in Superdrug, and this brand is becoming my favorite for SO many things. This blush does not go on streaky or cakey, it is just the right texture. I just think for the price of MUA'S items you just get so much payoff its crazy! I have this in two other shades, but so far shade 4 is my go to blush.

4. MUA Hide & Conceal Concealer in shade Fair
    This Make Up Academy concealer was £1 in Superdrug, and once again MUA pulls through! I am starting to wonder what this company actually can't make amazingly! I use quite alot of concealer when I do my daily make up, and this product passed my test! It is not really oily, and does not crease after being on for a few hours (not sure how it will handle the heat though).  I really love this, and I think this may be one of my new daily products.

5. MUA Pro-Base Eye Primer
    this product was £2 out of Superdrug, and I LOVVVVVEEE it. I usually cringe at the price of good eye primers (urban decay, MAC, etc) so when I saw this I was so excited at the chance to maybe save some money. I was very skeptical when I applied this as the color of the product is almost clear, so I figured it would not work great. I am really glad I purchased this because I was so wrong, even though the product's color is a bit un usual it works GREAT, and makes such a difference!

So those are some of my march favorites so far! have any of you tried any of these products? what are some of your new favs? let me know! xxx

Review of MUA highlighter!

hello all!
So sorry for the lack of posts, life has been a bit crazy lately! I've recently done quite a big make up haul so I will be posting more regularly!  Anyways, Today I will be reviewing Make Up Academy's new product " Undress your skin shimmer highlight". When I first saw this product I was REALLY excited because I have not found alot of brands that do a good highlight at a decent price. When buying this product I really did not know what to expect because MUA is a bit of a hit and miss with their products.After buying and swatching I really really love it! for only 3 pounds you really can't beat it! i use it to highlight down my nose, my cheeks, and anywhere else you want to show a bit more! Also I've found that it stays quite well and does not sweat off during the day.
when applied with no primer

PROS: very cheap, available in super drug, stays for a long time.
CONS: packaging is a bit cheap, but that is it!

so get out there and try this amazing highlighter! has anyone tried this product? what are your thoughts?
