Getting Lashed at New Year

There are some fabulous new additions to the strip eyelash market as pictured above.  I had planned to photo them all on my eyes over the last week but since I've been ill I unfortunately haven't been able to, so I hope pictures of them are OK and still help if you are picking some up tomorrow for New Years Eve.


Girls with Attitude have a new range of gorgeous Burlesque false eyelashes which cost between £5.50 and £6.00 and are available from Boots. My favourite are the lashes called Showtime which are clusters tipped with a multicolour swarovski style crystal.  Perfect for adding a sparkle to the outer corner or just using along the lashline for some serious glamour


La La Lashes by Lash Perfect  are a salon quality lash to purchase for home use.  From the gorge boudoir style packaging to the eye catching designs these are some really gorgeous lashes and so soft and silky.  There are some designs as above that are embellished with glitter and others that have diamantes so absolutely perfect for NYE!  The lashes retails between £6 and £10 and contain a latex free adhesive so are perfect for anyone who is allergic to latex. 


New for Christmas, La La Lashes also introduced strip lashes embellished with swarovski crystals and they are presented in a hot pink jewellery style box with a pair of mini tweezers. Perfect if you have to be the most glamorous looking one although these are slightly more expensive at £35.00 I know £35 is a lot for a pair of eyelashes, but I really want some now!


Eylure Naturalites are my go-to easy peasy lashes if anyone asks me which ones to try first.  They are shaped/curved and slightly shorter than other lashes so you are less likely to need to trim them - always a bit fiddly if you are a newbie.  The kit includes and adhesive that isn't bad - I prefer duo but this one isn't the usual tat you get with lashes and is contact lens friendly. They come in a mammoth range of designs so you are bound to find something you like.  I always like the ones that are marked volumising, as sometimes the long ones just look too long, and a bit silly if you are not 100% on your application skills.  

They cost around £4-6.00 from Boots or their website they also make the very popular Girls Aloud and Sex and the City lashes although to be honest I prefer to pay less and get the regular eylure lashes as they are just as good!


Eldora lashes are fabulous and a lot of them look spookily similar to Mac.  I only use the human hair ones as they are soft and silky and the ones in the pic at the top in the yellow box are the ones closeup above H103 cost £3.90.


Pop along to a Blinc brow bar and choose your set of lashes for around £10.  They will apply them for you for free and as long as you look after them well they will last you for weeks of use afterwards!

Will you be getting glammed up for NYE?  What are your plans?
