So it's Day 9 of the 12 Days of Christmas Must Haves, can you believe it is only a week to Christmas Eve? Fear not folks today I am going to help you out with your party lashes. I got sent these from NYC and I wore them out recently and got lots of compliments on them.
Now I've popped these in because as you all know I love lashes, but I rarely wear strip lashes. When I do wear strip lashes though I want something that is really glam but isn't going to cost me the earth. So many of you guys only wear strip lashes for big nights out or parties and I thought with Christmas what more excuse do you need?
So these are my cheap and fabulously fun lash pick for you to transform yourself for the festive period!
The diamond crusted lashes are rather fabulous but I wore the plain ones out to see Electric Six recently. I was going to wear the big ones but then I realised it was a gig rather than a big Christmas party and I thought I'd opt for a more subtle version.
Oh you might notice I've re-ombred my hair but I decided I wanted a flash at one side more than the other as I liked the look of a heavier pink on the side with my parting. Call me crazy but I think it's pretty cool.
This picture makes me laugh, I was trying to get ready and I had Himself shouting at me to hurry up as he was downstairs ready to go. I'd just put on the lashes and they hadn't fully stuck yet whilst I was madly taking pictures.
I added a little cat flick to the edge of my eyes with the lashes.
You see my ombre now?
I think these are pretty natural looking lashes, what I like about NYC though is that they're so bargainilicious. If you take them off after your night out and they're a little bit glue riddled with eyeshadow on them, and you're thinking 'oh these will need to be cleaned before I can wear them again'. If you are feeling like a proper lazy sausage you can just go 'balls to it' and throw them away as they're only £2.99. I've always found them quite easy to clean so it wouldn't worry me but if the lazy fit takes you fear not.
So I think it's a really fab look that is very easy to get. I whacked a bit of lash glue on them as well just to make them stay put for the whole night. They held up to being pulled off too, they're back in their box for when I want to wear them again.
Great little bargain accessory.
