Boo! Makeup & Lashes FOTD ~ MyFace MyMix Lashaholic

I promised to come back and post a face of the day featuring the Myface Cosmetics I blogged about earlier this week {link to review}

So here I am wearing Myface Cosmetics Mymix foundation in Fair 01 and Myface blusher in Paradisio Pink. I *was* wearing Myface Slinky Matte liquid liner, but you can’t really see it behind this fabulous new mascara… ok, ok so they’re not my natural lashes! I’m wearing Addictive Glamour false lashes by Lashaholic, which I’ll tell you more about below. 

I defined the lower lashline with a pewter Laura Mercier eyeshadow and filled in my (normally invisible) brows with Anastasia of Beverley Hills Beauty Express Browkit in Blonde. My lipgloss is Calvin Klein Taffy Pink {reviewed here}.

So what do you think? I love the Myface makeup but felt really odd wearing these lashes - they just felt a bit too big, like they took up my whole face! They are beautiful quality, really soft and the glue that came with them is the best I’ve ever tried (any lashes I’ve worn before took ages to stick and fell off shortly after).  I just think I might suit a more natural style better - or is it just because I’m not used to them?

One final image in my (not so shiny) mirror to show how flash affects the makeup…

So these are the bad girls - pretty lush aren’t they? I love the shape of them and am impressed that they are 100% handmade (in a little village a few miles from where I live!).

They come in 9 different styles and are reusable…  the pair I was sent is perfect for a night out - maybe I just need more guts to wear them - but I’d like to try a more natural style next time!

The packaging is simple but pretty, convenient for storing them in and includes a tube of glue and full instructions. Application tips:

  • Apply full makeup and mascara (if required) as normal
  • Remove lash strip gently with tweezers, apply a thin layer of adhesive to the band and wait 20-30 secs til it becomes tacky
  • Apply to the upper area of the lash line and press gently for a few seconds until the adhesive adheres
  • To remove, dab a little eyemakeup remover along the lash line and gently lift off

I didn’t bother with the eyemakeup remover (as I took them off in the middle of the day) and they came off easily, but it’s probably best to to this to maintain the quality of the lashes and avoid ripping them.  While I’m usually quite good at fiddly things, I find it *really* hard to apply false lashes, so if I can put these ones on, anyone can!

Lashaholic Strip Lashes cost £7.00 at lashaholic.eu
