Sooo I've just subscribed to my first glossybox, I've seen them around ages ago but they kept slipping my mind!
So I'm sat watching Mumford & sons on tv at Glastonbury getting depressed I'm not there, and thought I'd cheer myself up and get one, I don't know if its helped the dull ache of wanting to be at Glasto, but its cheered me up a bit! 
Has anyone got a glossy box? What's the best product you've got from it?

Eyelash extentions

Now most people must of heard of eyelash extensions, they come under many brand names the first being Hollywood lashes, then companies followed like nouveau, lash perfect and the list can go on.
They are great for people with short straight lashes that want to have long thick curled lashes, but also great for people that have long lashes already that are looking for more of a glamorous look that you can't get from a tint and a perm. The lash technician should tailor make the lash look to you personally, using your own lashes and your desired look as a template. The lashes there selves come in many different lengths, curls and thicknesses. Depending on the strength of your natural lashes you can go as thick and long as you want! 
The lash extensions are literally like your natural lash, so they are adhered to an individual natural lash which gives them their natural look unlike individual lash clusters (bulbed lashes).
The only downfall to lash extensions is they need infilling. Due to the natural eyelash growth they grow out taking the extension out with it. So every 2-3 weeks you will need to go back to the salon to get them infilled to keep up to the glamorous amazing looking!
Now what everyone wants to see a few pictures of clients I've done myself!

Duty free haul

So I haven't blogged for ages now, I was so busy running up to my holiday that I just couldn't find time to write any!! 
I went to Tunisia for the second time with my boyfriend and once again it was amazing!! 
We went to a place called port el kantaoui and stayed at the royal kenz hotel and this was our lovely view! 
Anyway down to the business. So everyone loves duty free wether its just having a look round or having a bit of a splurge, now duty free doesn't save you as much as it used to but I still saved about £20 with the things I brought.

Ive never tried any benefit products before and have always wanted to so I thought this was the perfect time to try it out! 
So I was browsing around looking at things I've seen on other blogs but it was all stuff I thought I'll never use, then I came across the eye brightening stuff and my eyes lit up! 
So I picked up the eye bright pencil first. It's a pale pink colour that they advise you to apply in the inner and outer corner of your eyes, but I just apply in light strokes to the bottom of my eye and the inner corner and blend around the eye area, its also really good for highlighting so i applied a bit on my brow bone aswell, it does what it says on the 'tin' basically, it instantly brightens your eye area getting rid of the dark circles i hate so much! Do be careful though and apply it lightly and if you need more use more, as a little goes along way and you don't want to look like you have panda eyes!

I then found boi-ing industrial strength concealer. My new favourite thing ever! You can use this over the eye bright pencil or by it self, as it says its industrial strength so again a little goes along way, which Is one reason why I love it, as its small and I was worried that I wasn't going to get my money worth, but I can see it lasting ages. I used a brush with this as my nails are long at the moment so I can't blend round the inner corner of my eyes with my fingers yet. The brush works fine though and I kind of prefer using a brush to be honest. It covers perfectly and stayed put on my holiday even when I was in and out of the pool so much. Defiantly the perfect holiday essential for me.

Now I thought I was done after that but I started looking at eyebrow things, as I've got quite sparse eyebrows I've used lots of different eyebrow products and companies, powders, pencils, all sorts! I was playing around with the testers, trying to find something slightly waterproof. I came across the instant brow pencil. Testing it on my hand and my way of testing if it was waterproof was licking my finger and rubbing over it, seemed to work and it didn't look like it was going to budge. So the first day  of the holiday, I tried it out. You feather it on lightly and it does give a good effect and still quite natural so I thought so good so far. It also has a brush on the other end to help brush those strays into place. After going in the pool realised it wasn't quite as water proof as I thought! Then again it never said it was waterproof i just assumed with my really good way of testing waterproof  things! The pencil does ware down quite easily so I found I was sharpening it a lot, and if you using it a bit heavy handed it does look a bit waxy on the brows but all in all I do like this product and will continue to use it.
