Mink Eyelash Extensions Day 2

Two days ago I went and had eyelash extensions done (as well as threading and eyebrow tinting). I got this with a groupon voucher I purchased some time ago. I could not resist passing this offer as I was curious about eyelash extensions for quite some time now.

I had my extensions (as well as the threading and tinting) done at the DVA lash and brow bar in the Westfield Stratford shopping centre. The service was not the best (especially as they let me wait really long even though I had an appointment), but when it was my turn it was actually quite fast.

It was a little unpleasant when the beautician sticked them on but we all know that beauty sometimes hurts ;)

So two days in, this is how they look:

So far, I have been really enjoying them. You can hardly feel them and I think they look really nice. On the pictures above I am wearing right eyeshadow of the Nars Kalahari Duo (one of my current loves) and I also applied a little mascara on the bottom lashes but that is it. Fast and easy in the morning.

I will keep you updated on how long they last and how they fall off.
Already this is written down in my holiday preparation list :)

Friday's Nail Combo: Royal Red by GELeration

My nail salon had this gel polish brand which I have not heard of, but looking at the swatches I loved the colour called Royal Red! So on it went.

I also opted for a rounded shape instead of square which makes the look very retro and I LOVE it!

Do you like the colour as much as me?

So long...

Friday's Nail Combo - Shellac Beau

My second Friday's Nail Combo post is a natural one. Decided to go for a very classic natural shade: Shellac's beau! As a shellac manicure usually lasts me for two weeks, I don't always feel like going all out. Besides, natural nails allow you to wear crazy arm jewellery without going overboard.

I really like this and I am sure it won't annoy me even on day 14!

Happy long weekend everyone!
I am already at the airpot going off to see my family in Austria!

So long...



Products I finished:
Boots Botanics Skin Brightening Toner
Boots Botanics Smoothing Eye Maekup Remover
La Roche-Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel
Astor Mattitude HD Foundation in 001
Palmolive Naturals Shower Milk with Honey and Milk
Dead Sea Spa Magik Bath Salts
Sure Cotton Dry Anit-Perspirant Roll-on
Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation in 25 Nude
Percy & Reed Totally TLC Hydrating Hair Mask
Lush Ocean Salt Facial Scrub
Rituals Yogi Flow Foaming Shower Gel Sensation
Alpha-H Liquid Gold

Products I will definitely buy again:
  • Astor Mattitude HD foundation, because it is cheap and I really like the look it gives (which is a satin finish). It also lasts for absolute ages which I love for work.
  • Vichy Dermablend foundation. I just really like it. The price is ok (not the cheapest but not outrageously expensive either). I love the coverage, I love the finish - quite dewy for a long lasting full coverage foundation- and I love the feeling on the skin. Only negative point: the colour range is very limited.
  • Alpha-H Liquid Gold, because I really think it has changed my skin to the better.

  • Dead Sea Spa Magik Bath Salts, because I did not notice that it did anything. Did not smell nice, was not moisturising, just dissolved and dissappeared in the bath water.
  • Lush Ocean Salt Facial Scrub, because this is nothing ANYONE should put on their face. It contains very coarse and irritating particels that scratch your skin!
Hope you enjoyed this post!

So long...
