Outre Batik Peruvian Lace Front Wig : A Review

Curly Wurly 

I absolutely love big bouncy curls and I have been dying to go curly for a while now.  I actually bought a blonde curly wig from AliExpress a few months ago and while it looked fabulous in pictures it was way too big in person! I couldn’t wear it out. I wanted to find something that looked natural without breaking bank. Outre’s Batik Peruvian Bundle Hair Wig is almost the perfect curly wurly wig!

 

First impressions… 

I ordered the wig from sistawigs.com. It came to $28.74 (Wig=$22.99, Shipping within US=$8.05, Coupon Code=Nicole which took 10% off). Overall that’s not a bad price.

Above are the contents of the wig shipment. Sistawigs send out a free wig cap with their wigs, which is good as my current one has holes in it…

Care guide Outre Synthetic Lace Front Wig L Part Batik Peruvian Bundle Hair

Here’s a copy of the care guide.

 

So the first things that I notice when I put the wig on are: 

  1. This hair is SO SOFT! It doesn’t feel synthetic at all. It feels human.
  2. The hair is ridiculously long and is in desperate need of a cut.

Too much hair!

In my opinion the length of the hair made it look like it wasn’t mine. Come on we don’t wear wigs because we want them to look wiggy.  The hair texture and colour was so realistic but I had to pull my scissors out and give it a cut.

Terrible quality but this picture shows you how much I cut off

As you can see I cut a fair bit off this wig. First I just went straight across with the scissors and then I took it off put it on my idea of a wig head (a large shampoo bottle at the end of a table…my usual styrofoam wig head is in England) and then cut some layers into it so the hair didn’t look so heavy.

 

Realistic or nah?

The L part

 

Outre’s Batik Peruvian Bundle Hair Wig has a fantastic deep part. Above is a picture of it before I’ve done anything to it. No plucking and no powder. I love the ample parting space, and think the wig looks great worn with the part (and with powder), but I do prefer to flip the hair over so there’s no part at all. I still need to work out just the right amount of ‘flip’ so that I don’t have to have my neck crooked though…haha.

Flip over method

I’m a big fan of the colour 4. It’s a great deep chocolate brown that I think works really well with my skin tone especially in the winter time when I’m a bit paler. Coupled with the 30, in the S4/30, the depth of colour in the wig is fantastic and looks so natural.

S4/30

The wig holds well without any combs but there are three in there if you want to use them. Also I should mention that this wig is big head friendly! I have a bit of a large coconut and it fits comfortably with my hair braided underneath.

Three combs. Two at the front and one at the back.

 

All in all… 

This is a fantastic wig once you’ve done a bit of work to do. Give it a good trim, powder the part or flip it over and you’ve got a great new look. The hair texture and colour is super natural and you are bound to turn a few heads.

I love Day of the dead makeup looks and was amazed that I had all of the bits to do this one already in my makeup bag!

You’ll need: 

  • a powder slightly paler than your skin tone
  • black liquid eyeliner
  • eyeshadows in your choice of colour – I used green and purple for the rings around my eyes
  • coloured eye pencils (I recommend Soap and Glory’s Crazy, Sexy, Kohl)

Step 1: powder your face

Step 2: draw the circles around your eyes using your coloured eye pencil and fill in using your choice of eyeshadow. I used a green eye pencil and green eyeliner because I was transforming from my poison ivy makeup look

Step 3: use your liquid eye liner to draw mini rings around the green circles

Step 4: use another coloured pencil to draw swirls or another pattern on your forehead

Step 5:  fill in the mini rings with your eyeshadow colour choice (I used purple)

Step 6: use your eye liner to colour in a triangle shape on your nose and draw lines on your cheeks and mouths to make it seem as if it has been sewn shut.

OK…so you can do this look with your usual green eyeshadow and purple lipstick but I highly recommend Soap and Glory’s Crazy Sexy Kohl Kit and Mac lipstick in Heroine to really make this look pop.

You’ll need:

  • a red wig
  • your foundation
  • contour kit
  • bronzer
  • black liquid eyeliner
  • green eyeshadow
  • green eye pencil
  • purple lipstick
  • eyelash glue
  • false lashes (optional)
  • and leaves from your garden.

Changing up the wig 😉

Step 1: apply your foundation

Step 2: really accentuate your cheekbones when you contour. I contoured and then applied bronzer on top so it was extra dark

Extra bronzed cheek bones

Step 3: I applied my lipstick (It’s a habit whereby I like to have my lips done before my eyes…)

Step 4: (my favourite part) colour your eyebrows in with green pencil

Step 5: apply your green eyeshadow (all the way up to your brows), line your eyes (in black) and apply your false lashes

Step 6: use your eyelash glue to strategically stick the leaves to your face and body.

I love a matching two-piece and this little stunner from Luxemme was the perfect edition to my collection before Autumn came and swept over England.

My Luxemme delivery

From the moment my parcel arrived I knew that I was in for a treat. Luxemme’s clothes arrive wrapped in black tissue paper with a hand addressed envelope containing the invoice. It’s this kind of small but personal touch that I love when ordering from an online boutique rather than a huge online retailer.

LUXEMME ALAYNA FLORAL CONTRAST TWO PIECE

This two-piece is beautiful, and from the moment I saw it on their instagram I knew that I had to have it. It has a unique floral pattern and is made from a lightweight fabric that is perfect for the warmer months. Whilst I wish the weather in England was warm enough for me to get a few more wears from it Luxemme have some lovely looking jackets  online at the moment that seem perfect for the Autumn chill.

If you haven’t already make sure you check out Luxemme on instagramtwitter and Facebook!
