Eylure – Enchanted Limited Collection – Power Flower

IMG_7714

Wispy, lightweight eye lashes that create a naturally but full look!

These lashes balance volume with length due to the mix of long and short lashes. As they’re spaced out and not compacted into a black block, these are stunning for use with daily outings and events without making you look over done – subtle but noticeable. They’re wispy and very lightweight which makes them comfortable to wear, and the band flexes easy allowing a better fit to your natural lash line.

As with all Eylure eyelashes – these come with the adhesive included. The thing I love about Eylure’s adhesive is that it comes with an easy to use applicator to allow precise application of the glue due to its flat and tapered end!

These are very easy to apply and remove – I can apply these using my fingers alone or along with a pair of tweezers, or using the Eylure applicator tool.

Bottom Line: These eyelashes are perfect for a daytime event, or for everyday wear as opposed to their more glamorous, fuller luxe collection eye lashes.

Saturday Lashes – A Pair for Everyday! 100% Handmade and Cruelty Free lashes! – PR

IMG_7026

A set of lashes for every day, all in one cute, curated collection!

I stumbled upon Saturday Lashes on Instagram one evening, and instantly fell in love with the brands premise – a collection of lashes for every day of the week. Please note these were gifted to me for use and promotional purposes.

These lashes are handmade and assembled in the USA where they use 100% cruelty free mink hairs – they are currently thinking of expanding with a vegan range for my Vegan followers!

So how did Saturday Lashes come about? Katrina the owner decided that she was done with the status quo and delved right in to create her own natural, pair of eyelashes that wasn’t gaudy, heavy or overbearing for her eyes. She decided to curate a pair for every day of the week to complement our moods.

In the collection you get;

  • Monday Coffee – Doe-eyed Short and Long Lashes “You Woke Up Like This”
  • Tuesday Ease – Strong Clusters Broken Up By Crisscrossing Hairs, “Others Only Wish They Were You.
  • Wednesday Social –  Match lashes with Colourful Shadows, “Followers Beware.”
  • Thursday Blush – Heavy On The End For The Perfect Cat-eye, “Meow.”
  • Friday Night – Blue Lases Blended Into Black Make The Whites Of Eyes Whiter, “Go Boogie On Down.”
  • Saturday Morning – Pair With Dewy Skin and Light Makeup, “Do you hear that? They’re Looking For Their Missing Angel.”
  • Sunday Brunch -Eat Waffles, Drink OJ, and Take It Easy, “P.S.Use These Too!”

The lashes come in different lengths to complement the name and day, allowing for subtle lashes for every day glamour to showstopping lashes to impress in the club. Allowing you to choose the style that best suits what event you’re wearing them for!

The band is very flexible, which allows it to mould easily to your eyelid from the start, but it does make it quite the task to remove them from the plastic tray – although I’d rather have that than have a rigid band stabbing me in the eyelid or pinging off… With the proper care, these lashes can withstand up to 20 uses, making them a very good investment if you’re willing to take care of them compared to ones off the high-street.

Bottom Line: The variety Saturday Lashes have to offer is amazing with a cute set designed for every day!

Price: From $27 a set, at Saturday Lashes.

True Beauty London – Premium Beauty Monthly Subscription Box – PR

IMG_6483

A new beauty subscription box to challenge the others!

I discovered True Beauty on Instagram where then got in touch and sent me a beauty subscription box to try out and review. So please note- I received this box complimentary to review!

The True Beauty model is to allow us to try out new products in the comfort of our homes via their curated monthly subscription box. Their boxes contain handpicked items, often with a theme, by the lovelies at True Beauty and you will receive four full sized items and two sample products to try out! Here is my box from May;

IMG_6482

You would have seen a sneak peek of my subscription box on my Instagram stories – if you don’t follow me you should!! In my box I received a pair of Eylure Enchanted Power Flower eyelashes, NYX Vivid Brights eyeliner in Purple, Smashbox Lipgloss in Lilac, Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb face mask, NYX Tea Tree Blotting Paper, an E.L.F. Blending Brush and Belif cream sample.

IMG_6484

I was very impressed with the variety and brands that were included – NYX and Smashbox are premium brands so to get such a haul as this was impressive, especially considering the £30 price tag. I have to point out that some items, for instance the Smashbox lip gloss are old season and no longer available, it’s still nice to have them in a subscription box and shows the initiative the creators had to ensure we have premium brands in this deluxe box without cheaping out. I’d rather have a slightly older product, even discontinued items, than have little bits and bobs that can often turn subscription boxes into bric-n-brac, fill ’em up clutter where I’m stuck with items that I don’t even value.

Bottom Line: A premium beauty box with a variety of brands from both ends of the beauty spectrum.

Price: From £24 a month, at True Beauty London.

Bowe Organics – Lash Oil– Review – PR

FullSizeRender (10)

An organic lash oil to promote healthy lashes and promote growth!

I received this product complimentary in return for my honest opinions – so here it is! You can find my first impressions blog of this lash oil here!

As you saw in my previous, first impressions post, I received this organic lash oil to help promote healthy and luscious lashes. I’ve now used this oil for over a month so here is my full, in-depth, honest review.

I applied this lash oil before bed, as stated in the instructions, by applying to my finger tips and gentle rubbing it on my eyelashes. I found that this oil was very useful in getting rid of adhesive glue from my false eyelashes that was stuck to my natural lashes. It also helped remove stubborn waterproof mascara.

After I used a few drops to deeply cleanse my eyelashes, I then reapplied some to leave on whilst I slept. In the morning I woke up and notice no extra greasiness or oiliness around my eyes – which is always a worry with oil based products. This oil was very nourishing, and I noticed that in the mornings that my eyelashes looked longer and healthier – which may be due to the oil removing all the makeup related leftovers leaving behind fresh, clean lashes.

I did notice that my lashes didn’t tend to get pulled out so much when using falsies or mascara. I had a month of less lash shedding which was a pleasant change. I also notice I wasn’t wearing my heavy mascara so often, and rather using a less va va voom, subtler mascara.

Overall, if you’re looking for some lash friendly cleanser to power through your latex and mascara leftovers, or want to prevent eyelash shedding – give this a go. I now use this as a lash cleanser along with a clean mascara brush to help run it through – I’ve also used it on some of my premium false lashes to help remove leftover glue!

Bottom Line: A lovely, all natural eyelash oil that is a brilliant cleanser and can reduce eyelash shedding.

Price: £19.99 at Bowe Organics.

Eylure – Luxe Collection False Eyelashes – Trinket

FullSizeRender

A beautifully, wispy, full length lashes!

As you know I am a huge fan of the Eylure and Fleur De Force collaboration eyelashes, so I decided to try some others from the Eylure range as I wanted to have a bit of variety with my falsies to suit a wide range of my makeup looks.

The first thing I noticed about the Luxe range, is that they’re advertised as their more premium lashes, with faux mink effect, to add a dash of cruelty free glamour! As they’re premium, they come with a higher price tag – but so does everything else so no surprise there. The one thing I noticed about these eyelashes is that the range is a lot more thin and wispy than the others which I found to be thick and cumbersome.

This style I feel is the best for a light glam look where you’re worried your lashes will hide in your eyeliner in photos, as they look false, yet not overly so that you look like you’ve just attached two black caterpillars to your eyes…

I also picked up their Luxe Bumble eyelashes which are a lot more va, va, voom than these – so keep your eyes peeled for my review on them! In the meantime, you can catch all my false eyelashes reviews here!

Bottom Line: These eyelashes are easy to apply, and the adhesive included in the package is so simple to use. Gives a wonderful, premium wispy look!

Price: £9.95 from Boots
