Review: Pinkcoco Wig ~ Wavy Black

Hello dollies! First, I want to say MERRY X'MAS. Eventhough I'm not celebrating Christmas, but I'm enjoying the festive holidays! And as promised, I'm back with the awaited Pinkcoco wig review, sponsored by PRINCESS BUTIK (Thank you )

Attempt to look like a Japanese lolita =P
Photo taken today! Heheh...
I edited the pic because I feel like doing it =P At first I just wanna check how the wig goes with lolitaish look. So yea, fake black ribbon and mini top hat, lulz. And OKAY, this wig is LOLIABLE! I'm gonna wear it together with my MAXICIMAM gothic lolita dress

About the wig, I'm super duper HAPPY like gyaaaaaaaa~~~ Actually I've been wanting to get another Pinkcoco wig. And lucky me, the kind owner of PRINCESS BUTIK offered a wig for review purpose, I was like O M G~super~duper~happy~

As a few of you  might already know, I got an issues with my first Pinkcoco wig order (from different shop). I'd rather not talk about it since it's too upsetting. But on a brighter note, the quality of the wig and color (pinkcoco) is still as good as ever. My first Pinkcoco was in brown. You can see me wearing it on my previous Vassen circle lens review.

Both of my Pinkcoco wig are... what should I say? they're simply satisfying and amazing! The owner of Princess Butik kindly let me choose one of the wig, I chose black wavy wig. I like it because the wave looks like a Korean water wave hairstyle! Permanent Mool Gyul waves anyone? :)

So here's how it looks from the back. Kinda scary meh~ hehe.. I don't have a wig stand so I had to use the headless fashion mannequin.

 It comes in this white box ^ Hair net included :)
Comparison of Pinkcoco wig and my Gill bottom synthetic wig. The synthetic one looks so 'ewww...' compared to Pinkcoco.

Comparison of Pinkcoco wig in black and my natural hair! As you can tell, the color is very very close to my natural hair, ryte?

 Closer look at the fake scalp.

 ⇈ before styling

Color: The color of the wig is just slightly darker than my natural hair color, it's a pretty natural black color! On photos, the color comes out differently depends on the lighting. It tends to have this brownish shine under natural daylight. But under indoor lighting, the color will be much darker.

Fibers: The texture and shininess is sooo close to natural hair. Everything are just PERFECT! Pretty and natural shine without being too over the top. However, the fibers are not as sleek, so it tends to get tangled on the wavy part. I had to comb it with my fingers every now and then. Tehcnically, you are not supposed to comb/brush one or two specific wig types (esp. one with curls or waves as it might deform the whole style). So yeah, need extra patience ^-^

Style & Look: Koreany, but also Loliable! It has a perfect Korean mool gyul waves (water waves) style which is popular among uljjang (check Gabalmania for reference). The full bangs can be parted to either side. Another thing is, I look SO YOUNG with this wig on! Mwahaha... yay for the full bangs! As a whole, the wig gives me just a right amount of volume. The wig is also STYLEABLE, means you can re-style it to your own preference. I'm not 100% sure, but the fiber is so similar to japanese kanekalon. Less shiny and yes it's HEAT RESISTANCE. (I will post more about restyling Pinkcoco wig later, since I had to straight-ironing my 'FIRST' CURLY pinkcoco wig, I'm not fond of curly wigs. It's too mainstream and... naah, it's just not my style ;^;) Good thing that I'm having this wavy wavy pinkcoco wig --> one that really fits my style!

Love rating: Photobucket


Now, selca time =P some kind of vanity space, LOOK AWAY! haha...
 *in vain ~lol

Pheww... Hope I didn't bore you with my pinkcoco raving >.< I just loooove the wig so much that I might sound like advertisements. I'm the type that will keep raving about something I really like, forgyff me ;^;. I love it and made a positive review not because I got sponsored, but because I really like the wig ♥ Especially how fluffy it looks on the photos. Hehe...

And if you decided to get the wig, be sure to visit, PRINCESS BUTIK (phone: 0821-2519-0170 BB pin: 25A3F937) and 'LIKE' their facebook page :) The owner is a nice person who will patiently answer your every questions.

Review: SIGMA F80 Top Flat Kabuki Brush

Several months ago, I got an offer from Jennifer to join Sigma affiliate program, and she kindly sent me Sigma F80 Flat Kabuki brush~ for free, thank you!

Sigma F80 -  Flat Kabuki:

Length: 6 1/4 in. (15.8 cm)
Unique Feature: Dense and flat head
Function: Buffed foundation application
Recommended Use: Blend liquid or cream products onto flat areas of the face such as the forehead and cheeks.
Bristle Type: Synthetic Sigmax™
Price: $18.00

  Soft and dense bristles

This is my very first kabuki brush I've ever had~! Back then I've always used my fingers/sponges to apply and blend BB cream, so this is quite a new experience for me ^-^ After using it for a few months, I'm ready to post a review! First, I would say that this brush is so versatile and multi-function. It could be used to buff on foundie/BB cream, and it does a great job as a countouring brush as well, especially to contour the jawline and temple area of face. F80 FTW!

Works nicely with any liquid/cream product, the versatileness is just amazing!

What I really like about the brush is the bristles. They are very very VERY SOFT and DENSE (as you can see on the pic)!! The softness of the bristles eliminates all the hassle of buffing. Though, sometimes it's a bit tricky to get into the crannys, like nose and nooks around the eye area. But I reckon it's just me being a newb, lmao~

When not used correctly, it tends to give heavy, cakey, and cracky finish. And the worst is the heavily applied foundation will accentuate the wrinkle on face (esp. under the eye). Eeek~.... But if you're able to work with it, it will give you a GOOD coverage + flawless and airbrushed finish. I like to wear it especially when high make-up maintenance is needed, like wedding occasion  and such.

It seems that many make-up gurus on youtube loves F80 too~

And to show you how soft the bristles are, I made an animated pictures for you girls~ It will take time to load the pictures.

What I like:
- VERY Soft and dense bristles ♥
- Synthetic (no allergies~)
- Thick and sturdy handle
- Doesn't soak up a lot of product
- Versatile!
- Gives a full coverage
- No brush streaks or whatsoever
- It doesn't shed

- a lil bit pricey (but I can tolerate the price since a high quality brush can last for 2 years with a good care)
- it takes a few days to dry!!!
- tends to give heavier look, need to work more to get a natural finish.

I like to use it especially when high make-up maintenance is needed, like wedding occasion  and such. But on low maintenance day, I'm just too used to use my fingers since it gives more natural look and makes my skin looks more like 'skin'. So that's it~!

And.. this is how I usually store my F80, heheh...

Now, if you'd like, please share with me how you usually apply your foundation/BB cream, with fingers? sponges? or brushes? Thank you~
