Eyelashes & You

Lovelies!!

I get asked about this a lot.

Truth be told I was never fond of eyelashes.

I have really long, quite thick ones. And they keep me happy. BUT, I do know the importance of amping up an eye look with a nice pair of falsies.

Some of my favourite brands since experimenting are:
Red Cherry
Stardel
NYX
Cherry Blossom
Ardell
Kiss
Cara
House of Lashes
Andrea
Elf

And those are just a few. Sometimes I get crazy and wear them for a week. Other times, I get fed up with picking the glue out of my own lashes and opt for mascara.

Either way here are five tips for selecting eyelashes and application:

1. Go natural first. People tend to select the most dramatic, full lashes in the lashosphere (made a word up lol) and then go, uh uh, take dem off. Ammmmmm they ADD expect the volume.

2. Use a glue that adheres quickly. Star Glue, Kiss iEnvy are my go-tos.

3. Use a pair of tweezers. They help, seriously.

4. Practice. Don't get frustrated, it takes time, patience and steady hands. Do not drink and apply.

5. Do not apply lashes in a hurry. Trust me. Your eyes will thank you.

Here's a link to a helpful article on semi-permanent lash extensions: Eyelash extensions.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

*Clinically tested and proven to significantly improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes. Results obtained via profilometry analysis.

It's A Dupe!

posted on our Facebook page April 12, 2013 "DUPE ALERT: M.A.C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Dark vs Maybelline Fit Me! in 355 Coconut. Both look the same applied to the face and are the same texture when swatched. The Mineralize Skinfinish Natural is bigger by 1 gram but the Fit Me! is significantly cheap... *ahem* more "inexpensive". There is one shade darker in the M.A.C version but 355 is the darkest shade in the Maybelline. (I'm NC50). If you go through a lot of face powder it's worth a shot - LR"
Talk about a throwback!
I watched a dupe video on YouTube recently where this comparison was mentioned and it reminded me that I had the same thought a while ago. The finish on the skin is identical. Since this original post M.A.C has changed the packaging on their Mineralize line and Maybelline has rebranded/re categorised the Fit Me! range into: Dewy/Set + Smooth and Matte + Poreless.
M.A.C says: "A slow-baked powder with 77-Mineral Complex that provid…
