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.

Summer Standouts

It feels strange to talk about beauty products with all that's going on in the Caribbean. Our neighbours are going through some seriously trying times and I implore you to give whatever you can. 🙏

I didn't even realise that this was a running theme. Last year's was especially good since it featured some of my favourite combinations. Like last year, makeup seems to have taken a backseat this Summer.


There's only one item here that surprised me...but let me not get ahead of myself.
Y'all know exfoliators are a must in my skin and body care routine so the Bath & Body Works 'Lavender & Sandalwood' Clay Body Scrub and Coco Shea 'Coconut' Richly Nourishing Body Buff (thanks to the Mistress!) should come as no real shocker. Both smell amazing; again no shocker since regular readers know I'm a firm aromatherapy believer.
