Battle Of The False Lashes- with

Wednesday, 22 October 2014

As of last week I've made the decision to start wearing eyelashes on a regular basis. I have a couple
of friends who wear them literally daily and always look gorgeous because of it. The trouble I've had
with my new commitment is it's taken me such a while to find the style that suits me and 'the perfect pair'.
After finally finding several that I like I decided to share a post on my little corner of the internet as a bit
of a guide for those of you wondering which eyelashes to go for so that you can see what they look like
applied/compare costs/ect. I hope you all find this useful.

Red Cherry #WSP- £2.99
Very natural looking lashes that blend in well with your own eye lashes yet adding quite
a bit of length. Good price at £2.99 but do not come with adhesive.

Red Cherry 102- £2.99

These lashes feel quite heavy on and would take a bit of getting use to. They do
make a dramatic difference to the eye but don't look as natural as the #WSP in my opinion.
Same at the WSP in price.

Revlon Beyond Natural Long Volumizing- £3.99
These add a lot of volume to your natural lashes and provide quite a bit of extra length.
Comes with good lash adhesive.

Eye Candy 011- £1.99
My person favorite, look extremely natural but add a lot of extra length to your lashes.
At £1.99 these are also the cheapest pair and come with lash adhesive.

Eye Candy Individual Flare Lashes- £4.89
Individual lashes that last 3-4 weeks. They come in a range of small to large lashes which I find
very impressive. I used only small and medium in this picture but would wear the longer for a more
dramatic effect. The price of these is very decent seeing as they last such a long time.

All the links to the above lashes can be found either by clicking the prices or by going to where you will find a massive range of eyelashes all with free UK
delivery! I hope you found a pair to suit you in this post but don't worry if not as I have a few
more posts of this type coming.

Quelques Notes d'Amour

Thursday, 16 October 2014

The day before last I was surprised by the arrival of the new Yves Rocher Eau de Parfum. Not having
spoken to anyone from the company for a long time I wasn't expecting anything from them at all. I've 
not been asked to write this or feel obliged to but I instantly loved the product so much that I felt I
needed to share it with all of you. For the longest time I've had the Channel Rouge Allure Sensual perfume
on my wish list. I just think it smells absolutely perfect, the main reason i'm writing this post is that the Yves
Rocher perfume is so so so similar! It's an extremely powerful scent that I feel smells very sophisticated,
the type of thing i'd expect a middle class business women to wear. The outer packaging is neat and pretty,
it comes in two sizes 30ml and 50ml, the bottle itself looks very dainty and elegant. All in all i'm so 
impressed with this and extremely glad to own it.

Shop Halloween With Makeup Revolution

Sunday, 12 October 2014

A couple of weeks ago a Makeup Revolution palette made it's way through my door and gave me the
inspiration to write this post. Today another packaged arrived that made me drop everything, fire up
my laptop and start typing. Makeup Revolution have been coming out with a whole load of new 
products recently, some of which reflect the approaching holiday. The first of two packages
contained the 18 shade palette 'Give Them Nightmares'. A salvation palette combined of 12
shimmer and 6 matte shades in a  range of purple, greens and greys. I'm not sure if it's specifically
designed for Halloween or just coincidentally perfect, either way i'll definitely be using it for my look
and at £6 I bet a lot of others will be as well!

In today's parcel was the new Atomic lipstick collection. Following on from the success of 
the bright shades in the Scandalous collection makeup rev have launched 5 new dramatic
colour is perfect for Halloween. 

Atomic Ruby, Make Me Tonight, Make it Right, Make Me Magnificent, Atomic Serpent

These 5 shades are so dramatically perfect for Halloween. If you're good at pulling off a dramatic
lip then these shades might be quite wearable through Autumn. Even if you're not and like me who
would struggle to pull off the red even then at £1 per lipstick it's hardly a bother just to purchase for
the festivities and discard afterwards. I'll definitely be trying my hardest to wear a few of these this
month though as it seems a shame to put such pretty shades to waste.

Alchemy Oils Grapefruit Hair Remedy

Saturday, 11 October 2014

After weeks of complaining about the dire state of my hair I was given the chance to resolve
my split end problems the help of Alchemy Oils Grapefruit Hair Remedy; A blend of coconut,
avocado, sweet almond, grapefruit essential and castor oil. (Woah that's a lot of oils) all packed
in an attractive glass bottle and is said to nourish and strengthen the hair. 
I've been using this twice weekly for 3 weeks now and can document a marked difference on the 
ends of my hair especially. I've even had a couple of compliments on my hair which is extremely
rare. After using the product 6 times there's still around 80% left so i'm pleased with how long
it will last. You only need a tiny bit per application, I did make the mistake on my first use of
using far too much and ended up with extremely greasy hair (something to be mindful of if you
try this yourself) I also find it to be quite messy, I even had to borrow a photo from the Alchemy
site for this post as I managed to spill oil all over the label. Apart from those two slight problems
though I was really pleased overall with how this worked.
