Rimmel Scandaleyes & Velour Lashes

Wednesday, 10 September 2014
You may remember if you follow me on social media and saw my Ardell Demi Wispies post I was seriously complaining about not being able to find the 'perfect' lashes. Well, I took a hit, emptied my bank balance (not literally) and treated myself to the Velour Lashes in 'Strike a Pose' - $35. I never wanted to spend so much on lashes but I was attending a wedding and had heard so many amazing reviews that I just had to. I bought these ones after seeing Jaclyn Hill's YouTube video of her using them in her bridal tutorial and instantly fell in love. I've come to the conclusion that tapered eyelashes such as the Ardell Demi Wispies don't suit me and I need a full lash that's consistent in length through the middle.

They completely open up my eyes and transform any look into something truly glamorous. I've only worn these a couple of times so don't know how long these do last, however they claim you can wear them for up to 25 times providing you care for them correctly. I wore these with my Duo lash glue for a number of 15 hours on the wedding day (party nutta and also not recommended) but they felt so comfortable on the lash and stayed put throughout with no need to top up my glue. No drunken attempts at trying to reapply lashes in the dark toilets. Magic.

The shipping is FREE Worldwide - huge brownie points and I'm waiting for my next payday to try some more lashes from them. Expensive but completely worth it with the quality. The packaging is gorgeous, I love having these in sight on my dresser. I'm a convert and I'm not sorry.

I teamed the lashes with a simple eye using the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in Buffing which isn't on the Boots website I'm afraid. But I picked this up from my local Morrisons store. It's £4.49 and lasts an absolute age without creasing. I only used 'Naked' from the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette to deepen the crease and 'Venus' for a brow and inner corner highlight but just applied the shadow stick all over, blending out the harsh lines and making it more smokey. Please excuse the first couple of eye shots with my dodgy eyeliner (my eye watered a ton while applying the lashes and ruined it).

The eyeliner is the L'Oreal Superliner Perfect Slim - I love this liner, it's super easy to use and I can create most eyeliner looks in a matter of a few minutes. This is my second purchase of the product, it lasts a really long time!
