Make-up and Cosmetics are ever evolving and False Lashes should be no different

Make-up and cosmetics are ever evolving and false lashes should be no different. Gone are the days of heavy clumpy eyelashes.

Introducing the new KISS Looks So Natural Lashes. I was sent a range of these new eyelashes to try out and I don’t mean it lightly when I say that these lashes are amazing! I went straight for the more dramatic of the new collection first – I chose the ‘Iconic’.

The effect was both dramatic and subtle at the same time, is that even possible? It is now! The lashes so were light making them very easy to apply. I had both lashes glued and applied in under a minute. They are super easy to manipulate meaning they fit every eye-shape. So if you have had trouble with eye-lashes coming loose at the corners in the past, worry no more, these will mould effortlessly to your eyelids.

One of the things that make these lashes so natural is the very latest and innovative tapered end technology. Where most other lashes have abrupt squared ends, these new lashes by kiss are tapered to look more like our own lashes, meaning the blend easily.

Within seconds of applying these lashes, I honestly wouldn’t have known they were there. In fact, I had to keep checking in the mirror that they were still on as I just couldn’t feel them.

I have been sent 4 out of the 6 different styles in the lashes including ‘Shy’, ‘Vamp’, ‘Iconic’ and ‘Pretty’. They range from Natural to Dramatic, meaning they are perfect for every occasion.

These lashes launch today and are exclusive to Boots in the UK. For such a high quality product, you will be very pleased to hear that these lashes are priced at only £4.49 each.

I can’t recommend these lashes enough. If you have struggled to apply or get used to wearing lashes in the past, these are definitely the way to go!

Let me know when you give these a try and what you think of them, leave me a comment below.

 

Tanning Friday: Vita Liberata – Deeper Deep Silken Touch – Untinted Self Tan Gel

Vita Liberata Tanning Gel

This week’s product is both amazing and ground breaking.

This product is essential for all fake tanners. Not only is it incredibly easy to apply, with fantastic results…it also combats the one main problem that all us fakers are faced with!

Quite simply…Vita Liberata have done it again! This company know how to make fake tan. I have previously reviewed their phenomenal 2 – 3 week tan which is a fantastic product and the first fake tan I have ever come across to last up to 3 weeks with a natural, gradual fade out. And now this.

8cLet’s face it, as wonderful as the world of fake tan is, we all have to deal with, and be extremely careful not to get stains on the bed sheets, marks on your clothing and generally discolour things we come into contact with. Well worry no more fakers! This tan is guaranteed NO TRANSFER.

This un-tinted self tan gel will not stain your gorgeous clothing, so is perfect for weddings and big events when you wear your most fabulous outfits! In my opinion, the one problem with fake tan…eliminated!

8d

This is a gradual tan, and once applied develops into a gorgeous dark, deep tan within 4 – 8 hours. I recommend applying at night and sleeping in it, before showering in the morning. And no need to wrap up entirely in loose, frumpy clothing, as this tan will not stain your sheets! Your partner can thank Vita Liberata later 😉

 8e

As this tan is a gel, it couldn’t be easier to apply! As always, use your trusty tanning mitt. Add a small, 2p sized amount to your mitt and enjoy as you rub the moisturising gel into your freshly prepped skin (never forget the prep)! The gel leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth, but not at all sticky or greasy. I have honestly never enjoyed applying a tan so much, it is so easy and simple.

8f

The final result is a very natural looking, streak free, deep tan. If you want a noticeable tan then this is the one for you. You could always water down with moisturiser if you wanted a slightly more subtle tan, but to be honest, I think it would be a shame not to make the most of this fabulous natural colour and really show off!

I don’t know how they do it, but Vita Liberata continue to astound with their ground breaking, impressive products, always a step ahead of everyone else!

 8g

At around £22.50, I realise it is slightly more than most tans you will find on the high street, but it really is worth every penny. Plus, you will save loads of money not having to buy new bed sheets and clothing! Phew!! You can buy it here!

Tanning Friday – What to wear while faking up!

7aThere are many questions regarding tanning, most of the time you will read advice on skin prep for before you have your tan, and how to apply the product.

However, you must know what to do once the tan is applied! There’s no point in going through all of the correct motions before and during tan application, if you’re not going to see it through to the end, and look after it once you’re all faked up.

Always wear loose, dark clothes. Long sleeves and long trousers are crucial, as they protect the entire tan while it’s developing, as well as anything that you may come into contact with.


7bDark tracksuits and pyjama sets are a great idea, and the recent craze of ‘onesies’ has provided another comfy option for us fake tanners. Granted, it is not the most flattering look or sexy and romantic option. But I’m afraid, if your partner wants a gorgeous, tanned beauty on their arm, then they will have to put up with the occasional frumpy trackie!  

Only wear items that you do not mind staining, as the dark coloured clothing helps to protect the bed sheets throughout the night while your tan is developing. They act as a barrier to prevent the colour from rubbing directly onto your lovely, clean bed sheets.

7dAnd hey…once you’re tanned up and looking like a beautiful bronzed goddess…then it is time to ditch the frumpy clothes and put on your sexier items for that very patient partner of yours!

Next week I will be reviewing a new tanning product by the fantastic Vita Liberata, which is both ground breaking and incredible! You don’t want to miss it…

Friday Tanning Review: St Moriz – Instant Self Tanning Mousse

If like me, you like a bargain…you’re going to love this week’s false tan product! 

4a

Since it hit the shops, St Moriz has been extremely popular with fake tanners all over – not just for the ridiculously low price, but also the quality of the product and value for money!

When I was a student, there seemed to be some sort of epidemic for this tan amongst all of my university friends. I think the instant attraction is the price – at under £3 a bottle in most stores, this fake tan is unbelievable cheap. But once applied, it becomes instantly apparent that this tan is actually worth a lot more than the low price tag it comes with.

St Moriz False Tan review

This tan is an instant tanning product, which means once applied; it develops straight away. However, most instant tans wash off. But, not this one! This tan is not only immediately noticeable; it also lasts around 3 – 4 days before it needs scrubbing off. This is a bit of a phenomenon amongst the fake tan world. The best of both worlds – instantly bronzed and beautiful, but with lasting affect! The majority of fake tans that last days to weeks will need at least 8 hours to develop, but not this little gem! And as a bonus, it will get even darker and reach its full potential after around 2 -3 hours.

This product is a mousse, which in my opinion, is the easiest type to apply. Follow the prep rules at the bottom of this review, and then simply apply with a fake tanning mitt for best results. A mousse is easier to control as it does not run away like a lotion.  It also dries within about a minute, so not need to stand around flapping your arms about, waiting to get dressed! I would recommend moisturising any dry patches before applying, as this tan will cling to any dry areas. (It is also available in a lotion, if that’s what you prefer!)

 St Moriz False Tanning mittt

There are two choices of shade – Medium and Dark. Medium gives an all over bronzed glow, but is not too intense. If you choose dark, you’re going to get a more noticeable tan, but a very natural one, that will look as though you’ve just landed from a week in Spain. Both shades are natural looking – without the dreaded orange glow! Be careful on your hands and feet – as it’s a mousse, you won’t need another skirt of the pump for these areas, instead use what’s left over from application elsewhere. This will all contribute to the ‘fresh off the plane’ illusion!

St Moriz False Tan review

St Moriz does have a scent, but it is not offensive and I actually prefer it to other smells associated with many fake tans. And with such a fantastic product, for such an incredible price, something has to give. Once you’ve had a squirt of your perfume and a blast of the hairspray, the scent is completely masked anyway!

St Moriz False Tan review

This fake tan has been an overnight success and it is no surprise! If you are new to the sun kissed world of fake tan, and want to try it out, I recommend this product. It won’t break the bank, and is easy to apply, with great results!

St Moriz False Tan review

Application Tips – As always, your basic skin prep is essential – no matter what fake tan you use, it is important to have the best canvas possible. This means, hit the shower and have a good thorough scrub with an exfoliant all over the areas you intend to fake tan. This removes all of the dead skin cells that would get in the way of an even application. Once dry make sure you moisturise the ankles, feet, knees, elbows, hands and wrists. And if you’re going to be shaving, always do so around 24 hours before tan application. Always apply with a tanning mitt if possible, this creates a smoother application and makes it easier to cover all areas. If you have to use your hand, ensure all areas are covered, you have enough product on your hands at all times, and always wash your hands thoroughly straight after. If you have any visible streaks or patches, use a thin moisturiser to even them out.
