My Favourite Way of Storing False Lashes…

So if you’re like me, then you stock pile lashes for those occasions when you need them. The odd night out, a party or wedding/special event – but they need to be easily accessible and for me one of the most important things is that they don’t take up alot of room.

Some beauty bloggers I know of have come up with quite fancy ways of storing lashes – Kaushal who has her own very successful Youtube channel takes them completely out of their packaging and keeps them curled up in little compartments in a plastic box.

I prefer to have them still stuck to the plastic packaging as this REALLY helps keep the shape, I find.

How to Store False Lashes

The picture above shows all my lashes in my stashes (lol) before I tried to store them!

My favourite lashes are the Red Cherry Wispy lashes – I get mine from Amazon and they are amazing. You can reuse them around 3 times depending on how much glue you use and they have minimal packaging which is another reason I love them.

I quite like keeping the white part of the packaging and then just disposing of the cardboard around it AND the glue that comes with them. The reason I say that is that I love to use the DUO lash adhesive, it comes in a standard version but being a brunette it also comes in Dark Brown!! Which is genius.

How to Store Your False Lashes

So you can see that taking away the cardboard packaging and just keeping the white sections makes them much easier to store – I’m just using a plastic sturdy tub that some of my indian jewellery came in! It’s perfect and compact, and if you buy multi packs like the Ardell Demi Wispie lashes you see above with FOUR PAIRS then that makes it even easier. By the way ALL of the lashes in the picture above are now in that box!

I hope you liked this post! Simple yet effective, lol

Soap & Glory Thick & Fast Mascara – Anyone got RSI yet?!

Hi Everyone!

I have a review for you today – if you browse through my blog you might think that I’m obsessed with mascaras because I have a lot of review posts! Looking in my Muji drawers, there would be a whole WEALTH of evidence to send me to Mascara Misuse Rehab (I have about 4 open at one time). The mascara I’ve been using recently is one that I’ve tried before, from Soap & Glory.

The Soap & Glory Thick & Fast *do you want any more ampesands* ‘Collagen’ mascara is, as far as I know, the main mascara line that Soap & Glory has. Aiming to ‘lay down volume and intensity’ using it’s V shaped brush, it claims to add thickness and volume without needing to work at it.

As always with these kind of reviews, below I’ve added a before and after so you can see the effect of the mascara on my own lashes. (I also did my eyebrows lol)

soap and glory thick and fast mascara

The pros of this mascara are:

  • It is affordable compared to something like Benefit’s They’re Real, Bad Gal Lash or Roller Lash
  • It’s really well pigmented!
  • The brush feels nice to use
  • Gorgeous packaging! (well, I think so, something satisfying about the all over gold wand)
  • It is quite good at lengthening (see above picture)

The cons of this mascara are:

  • You may get Repetitive Strain Injury from having to go back and build up every single layer to get volume and length. Seriously, this is NOT THICK AND FAST IT IS THIN AND SLOW (-_-)
  • The mascara has a watery consistency compared to most others on the shelves
  • Did I mention it’s hard to build up?
  • Oh, and someone get Soap and Glory to supply a small robot with each purchase TO MOVE THE MASCARA UP AND  DOWN ON YOUR EYES TO SAVE YOUR WRIST

Aside from these points, I actually quite like it lol.

It’s not a pain to get off, it doesn’t feel wet on the lashes which is good (however Roller Lash does so you may want to steer clear) and it’s quite good at lengthening which I was surprised at.

What do you think, have you tried this Soap & Glory mascara before?

🙂

Until next time lovely readers!

August Favourites!

Hi Guys!

I have my newest video on my August Favourites for you to watch 🙂 I can’t believe it’s September already, it’s instantly felt colder and darker! I have to say I quite like cosy nights in and sitting by the fire so part of me is excited, but I decided to film my favourites which are a mix of skincare and make up.

Keep an eye out for the consequences of squeezing too hard…you’ll see!

The Top 5 Ickiest Make Up Facts

***Quickly before I start this post, just a mention to say I’m almost at 300 Bloglovin followers! I will include a nice big image at the bottom of this post so you can go and give my blog a follow if you feel like it!***

I was putting on some false eyelashes the other day, when something I had known all along finally registered within my brain. After thinking about it for some time, I realised there are quite a few generally icky things that we either have to use as part of our make up routines, or have to put up with!

*these are facts..loosely translated as things that I think need to be spoken about, you won’t find them on wiki or anything*

ickiestmakeupfacts

MY TOP 5 ICKIEST MAKE UP FACTS

  1. Why why why does eyelash glue have to smell SO BAD. It’s like God’s punishment for wanting eyelashes that are longer and thicker. Even the good brands like Duo stink…they smell like…fish. It’s so disgusting it ALMOST makes me stay away from falsies (not really, I’m a soldier).
  2. Mascara eye goop! I was watching that episode of Friends where Chandler goes out with one of Rachel’s friends and he felt weird about her mascara eye goop. Guaranteed in the morning when you are getting ready for work, at some point (usually when you actually open your mouth to talk to another human being) eye goop starts to collect in the corner of your mascara’d eye. Yick.
  3. Poorly set foundation/concealer! If you don’t have a good foundation/concealer and touch your face, but then touch something white, it will get ruined. What’s worse is if you have a terrible foundation, you scratch your face or if someone was to wipe a finger down it, EVERYONE would be able to see the difference in skin colour. Terrible.
  4. OMG the taste of make up wipes when you have to take off lipstick with them. If you are using baby wipes it’s less disgusting, but if you are using proper make up wipes then nothing will save you. There’s no avoiding that horrific taste of the make up cleansing wipe, I do not want to taste soap thank you very much but I need a way of taking off this lipstick. Gah!
  5. Why the hell does lipstick ALWAYS end up on your teeth. This one is less disgusting, it’s just pure annoying. It doesn’t taste nice, it’s usually there the whole evening and you’re wandering around oblivious smiling like a cheshire cat.

Hope you enjoyed reading these and being put off your breakfast by them! MMMMMMM

Beauty Whys…

BEAUTYWHYS

Have you ever had a REALLY annoying thing happen to you when doing your hair or make up, which gets you thinking, ‘WHAI DIS HAPUN TO MEH’!!?

I am here to show you that:

1) It is ok to curse.

2) It happens to everyone (and it is a big deal hahaha)

and finally,

3) You gotta get through dis (thank you Daniel Bedingfield).

Here we go! *takes deep breath*

WHY NUMBER ONE: 

Stepping out of your house without applying powder. 

This happened to me this morning, I sat in my car and looked in the little slidey mirror and watched as a shine brighter than anything appeared across my T Zone. Thanks man.

WHY NUMBER TWO:

Applying your false eyelashes directly onto your own making them impossible to take off.

OMG this hurts so bad. They looked so nice on! Why have they melted themselves into my eyelash roots…I didnae go near any fire!

WHY NUMBER THREE: 

You go through the moisturise/blow your nose cycle around 20 times. 

Dry skinned sisters will know my feels for this one. You moisturise, your skin looks bloomin’ lovely. Your eyes start to water of their own accord. This makes your nose run. You carry on and put foundation/concealer on. You cave and blow your nose. DRY PATCH REAPPEARS. Repeat.

WHY NUMBER FOUR: 

You get all up close to do your eyebrows, pull away and realise it’s given birth to thousands of teeny tiny hairs underneath your arch. 

Close up, in your mirror your eyebrows are on fleek, they look the bomb and all other types of metaphors/similes. Then you look at yourself at arms length in a normal mirror and you realise you really should have plucked/threaded/chainsawed those bad boys. DAMMIT.

WHY NUMBER FIVE:

You use your Tangle Teezer on wet hair, works like a dream. You then run your COMB through the same hair and holy shit why does that hurt so much!

This again happened to me today. La la la all well and good using my trusty Purple Glittery Tangle Teezer. Then all of a sudden you switch to a comb for your parting and BOOM a thousand broken hairs. This is why when you go Tangle Teezer, you never go back. (What are you talking about, of course you can use it in that context).

I hope you enjoyed my Beauty Why’s! Please like and comment if you can think of your own or you have been through these and feel my pain 🙂

Lots of love to you all,

Favourite Mascara of the Moment

I thought I’d do a small post on a product that delivers BIG.

It’s the Maybelline ‘The Falsies’ Volum’ Express Black Drama mascara (foof, long name). I know a lot of people rave about this, but it really is worth the hype. Coming in at a very reasonable  £7.99, this product can trump those that cost around three times as much. Usually, the go to mascara for me is Benefit ‘Bad Gal’, which has the most obese of brushes and is great for lengthening and separating. However the only thing that bothers me about it is that after a while, the pigment in the mascara tends to look a bit ashy on the lashes, which detracts from the actual length of the lashes.

That’s why this mascara rules. It lengthens, it curls beyond belief, it separates AND it has a really black finish (yes, black drama apparently). It is quite easy to take off, but it doesn’t disintegrate throughout the day, so it is a perfect every day mascara that is still build able for evening looks.

This to me, is superior to the Maybelline ‘Great Lash’ mascara, because once I think I tried the waterproof version of this and still had remnants of it on my face about a week after (not a good look). Although it doesn’t quite have the same effect as applying a strip of false lashes, it still does a pretty good job!

I have attempted a little before and after so if anyone is considering purchasing, you can see the effects.
