Sensationnel Cloud 9 Dream Muse RACHEL in Color T1B/350


The Sensationnel Cloud 9 Series is a line of Showstopping wigs that will definitely turn heads! The colors range from traditional to vibrant & sassy! This beauty that I'm wearing is a lace frontal wig! It does have soft swiss lace that needs to be cut from the front hairline area of the front. It also has a 3XL silk-based parting space, which gives you multi-directional parting options! The cap size is medium, but also very stretchy & comfortable enough to fit a large head.

STYLE: RACHEL
COLOR: T1B/350

This unit is around 22 inches long with medium density. This is silky synthetic hair. The color T1B/350 is dark-rooted with Black in the top and the rest of the hair transitions into color 350 which is an orange red! This unit is heat safe up to a total of 400 degrees. The luster is shiny due to the hair being silky. You can tame high luster with a good dry shampoo. This wig has a total of 3 combs (2 on the front sides + 1 in the back). In addition to this, it has 2 adjustable straps in the back of the unit.

Zury Sis Glam H ANDIS Wig in Color SOMRT3033


I took major interest in Zury wigs this year! The stylish units they've been creating are really hard to overlook. This particular unit is composed of wavy hair. At first look, it's giving me retro glam vibes. This is a full wig with a slightly curved lace part. Also, there is no lace that needs to be cut from the front perimeter! The cap size is large.

STYLE: GLAM H ANDIS
COLOR: SOMRT3033

Color SOMRT3033, is mainly a mixture of medium and dark Auburn. This unit is also dark-rooted in the crown area. It is heat safe up to 400 degrees. However, I would caution you to be careful with heat, as you may not want to destroy this wavy curl pattern. The reason is that synthetic hair is not like human hair which reverts back to it's original curl pattern. The luster is very realistic! This wig has a total of 3 combs (2 in the front + 1 in the back). In addition to this, it has 2 adjustable straps also in the back of the unit. The density is medium! This hair is very long and somewhere between 24-26 inches!

Motown Tress Whole Lace Wig WL LEX in Color RT1B/Wine


Motown Tress has been coming out with many units that are Showstoppers! When I first spotted this unit, I couldn't help but do a double-take! It's sleek tresses and even length can easily be mistaken for natural hair that's received a Dominican Blowout. That's how believable and realistic this unit is. Your hairline will thank you for the soft Swiss lace that's around the hairline area. You can virtually make a part anywhere in the front of this wig. This is most definitely a WHOLE lace wig, so there's NO visible wefts anywhere in the cap! The cap size feels large, yet still very stretchy. So I believe that it would fit a general head size of medium to large.

STYLE: WL LEX
COLOR: RT1B/Wine

With all of the multi-directional parting options that you have in this lace front, it creates more styling versatility. The hair is synthetic and heat safe up to 400 degrees. I did sucessfully flat iron the top of it to remove a bit of bulkiness. The color RT1B/Wine is dark-rooted with burgundy ends. The texture is silky, so the luster is shiny. Spray it with dry shampoo, or simply use baby powder to minimize the shine/sheen. This wig has a total of 4 combs (3 in the front + 1 in the back). In addition to that, it has 2 adjustable straps in the nape area of the unit. The density is medium!

It's a Wig! Swiss Lace WINDLESS in Color OPTT6270


This is the Windless unit by the It's a Wig company! I'll start out by letting you know that this unit has light-weight & very comfortable hair that almost feels like silk gliding across your neck. This unit contains care-free, somewhat unstructured barrel curls! The overall look is definitely giving me Boho vibes! I can definitely appreciate the fact that this unit has soft lace at the hairline! 

STYLE: WINDLESS
COLOR: OPTT6270

This is a lace front wig with a lace part. The hair is synthetic. As far as the color, this unit is dark-rooted, but also has a few different hues of blonde. The luster is shiny and the texture is silky. The unit is high heat safe up to 400 degrees. It has the standard total of 3 combs (2 in the front & 1 in the back).

Friday Night Hair GLS132 in Color TT27


Friday Night Hair has definitely stepped their game up with all of the amazing colors they're starting to offer in their synthetic units! The colors are traditional but vibrant! This lace front unit is a wavy bob! It does have the regular hard plastic lace in the front. The cap size is medium, yet stretchy & comfortable enough to fit someone with a large head. I would suggest that you carefully place the unit over your head, if you do have a large head size. This should help you to avoid ripping the lace. 

STYLE: GLS132
COLOR: TT27

This unit is around 15 inches long with medium density. The texture is a silky kanekalon fiber of synthetic hair. The color TT27 is dark-rooted and the rest of the hair/ends are color #27 which is strawberry blonde! The website didn't specify if this unit was heat safe or not. To be safe, I wouldn't advise use of heat. The luster is shiny because the hair is silky. You can always tame the luster with a good dry shampoo. This wig has a total of 3 combs (2 in the front + 1 in the back). In addition to that, it has 2 adjustable straps in the back of the unit.

Klaiyi Hair - Brazilian Virgin Hair Bundles in Natural Color (Curly)


From this company, I received 3 bundles of hair which included: 24, 22, & 20 inches along with a 16 inch, 13x4 Frontal! I made a wig from this hair! Of course, the frontal had soft swiss lace. The hairline was already pre-plucked to my satisfaction, so I didn't feel that I needed to do any extra tweezing to customize it. I also did not bleach the knots at the root of the frontal, because it appeared that Klaiyi Hair company had already completed that step, as well. If there was a major problem with the visibility of the knots, I would have handled that with hair bleach.

STYLE: BRAZILIAN VIRGIN CURLY HAIR
COLOR: NATURAL BLACK


Thanks to the frontal, there is so much parting space in front of this wig I made! It can be parted in various directions. Because this hair is in a Natural color, this means that it's "unprocessed." This is great because it means the hair can be dyed, bleached, permed, etc! Before creating the wig, I did shampoo the bundles, and then I deep conditioned them.  I purposely straightened a portion of this hair to make sure that it would revert back to the curly texture after being dampened again.  It did revert back to the beautiful curls once I sprayed it with water! Because this is ethnic human hair, the luster is completely realistic and satisfactory for me. The density is very full and consistent throughout the hair from wefts to ends. I created this wig using a standard mesh cap. I do prefer mesh caps because they are breathable and allow the scalp to have ventilation, especially during hot weather!

Bobbi Boss MLF220 CRISPINA in Color BLBK


Bobbi Boss never ceases to amaze me! This Crispina unit is definitely giving me Coachella vibes! It does have care-free, endless waves. It also has a 13x4 swiss lace parting area. The lace is ear-to-ear. Swiss lace is soft and gentle on the hairline. The cap size feels quite large, yet comfortable for someone with a medium to large-sized head.

STYLE: MLF220 CRISPINA
COLOR: BLBK

Because this is a 13x4 lace front wig, it gives you multi-directional parting options in the front! It does contain synthetic hair fibers. Color blbk, is mainly a mixture of blue and black. It is heat safe. However, I would caution you to be careful with heat, as you may not want to destroy this wavy curl pattern. The luster is shiny due to the texture being somewhat silky. You can tame the luster with dry shampoo. This wig has a total of 3 combs (2 in the front + 1 in the back). In addition to that, it has 2 adjustable straps in the back of the unit. The density is full!

Sensationnel Cloud 9 Dream Muse MARIA in Color 99J


This wavy, classic beauty is from the Sensationnel Cloud 9 Dream Muse Series! I would say the cap size on this slightly on the large side. This unit is a silk-based lace front wig. It has soft-swiss lace around the hairline. I love how more manufacturers are starting to install swiss lace in their units. The reason is that it's very gentle on the hairline & less likely to cause breakage or damage to your edges.

STYLE: Maria
COLOR: 99J

This lace front wig is made of synthetic fibers. The hair quality itself, looks beautiful! The color that I have is 99J, which is typically a black cherry color. However, the 99J from this line is very dark. It is heat safe up to 400 degrees. The luster is fair, while the texture looks like relaxed hair. The actual curl pattern is wavy. It has a total of 3 combs (2 in the front + 1 in the back). It has the typical 2 adjustable straps in the nape area. The waves in this wig are very classic and beautiful!

Friday Night Hair GLS91 in Color 4


This is the GLS91 unit by Friday Night Hair! As with most FNH units, the cap size is average (medium). If you're a fan of curls that have a wet & wavy look (like me), this one is just that! It does have the hard plastic lace around the front perimeter. The hairline is super natural looking! 

STYLE: GLS91
COLOR: #4

This lace front wig is from the synthetic category. Color 4 is a medium to dark brown. The color is consistent throughout this entire unit, so there is no other color involved.

Solotica Hidrocor Contact Lenses in color OCRE (Hazel)


Vision Marketplace sent these contact lenses for me to review! I was very pleased that they extended this amazing offer to me because I've been wanting to try the Hidrocor lenses for quite some time now. I've heard nothing but great things about them.

These Solotica Hidrocor contact lenses arrived to me in a 2 factory sealed small containers. It was definitely a job to open the glass containers, so that reassured me that they were tamper-proof. 
Also, the contents of the Vision Marketplace box contained: the Solo Care Aqua All-in-One Solution for the lenses. In addition to that, they provided me with 2 contact lens cases, instructions, and a 10% off coupon voucher. 

Over the years, I've tried various brands of contact lenses. A few questions that I ask myself when ordering contacts are: 
1) Does the color mimic the natural iris of a human eye?
2) Is there a very thick limbal ring on the outer edge?
3) Are they available in a wide array of colors?
4) How soon do they need to be replaced?
5) Prescription or Non-prescription?

Using a special technique, Solotica is able to blend many exciting colors to create subtle & natural-looking lenses. I tried one of the contact lenses on and compared the color of that to the natural color of my other eye. There was a "dramatic" difference! The Hidrocor lens were completely opaque (non-transparent), and appeared to be highly vibrant in color. 

There was no limbal ring which provided maximum coverage across the iris! Also, with no limbal ring the color of the lenses looks more natural when looking around in various directions. The color is blatantly more uniform and realistic. 

The base curve is: 8.7 and the base curve of a lens (measured in millimeters) indicates the curvature on the inside of the contact lens. This value is used only for contact lenses, and Not required for eyeglasses.
The diameter is: 14.2 and the diameter of a lens (measured in millimeters) is the distance from one edge of the lens to the other. This value is also used only for contact lenses, and Not required for eyeglasses.

The Solotica Hidrocor style has about 13 colors total. 
They are: 
Azul (blue)
Mel (honey)
Verde (green)
Marine 
Ocre (hazel)
Graphite
Ice
Quartzo
Topazio
Esmeralda
Crystal
Amber
Hazelnut (avela)



The color that I had chosen was "Ocre" which is equivalent to Hazel.


The Hidrocor lenses are replaced annually. That's right...annually! This means that with good care, you can wear these contact lenses for 1 year before they need to be replaced. This is a very cost effective-brand of contact lenses.

Last but not least, the Solotica Hidrocor contact lenses are available in prescription strength, as well! The prescription corrects Myopia. I often wear these lenses with my prescription glasses, so that is an option that you have, as well (if you don't get prescription contact lenses).

In summary, I love how light weight these lenses feel while I'm wearing them. They are very comfortable and easy on the eyes. Additionally, the color is very rich and designed to look exactly like the color in human eyes! The best part of all of this is that these contact lenses only need to be replaced once a year!

This is the Friday Night Hair GLS08 Lace Front Wig. It is a gorgeous lace front wig, that looks just like some sort of high quality virgin hair! This unit has a super realistic hairline area. It does contain hair plastic lace around the perimeter of the hairline! I created my own part in this unit with ease! The amount of time that it took to style this unit was minimal! I do suggest that you brush through it and lightly wet it to achieve curl definition in the styling process.
