Girl Aloud Lashes: Nadine Coyle

I've always been a fan of lashes but have never been able to find the perfect pair, even after having lashes fit and trimmed at photo shoots and being told i can reuse them myself they never look brilliant just okay.......I bought Cheryl Coles lashes from the girls aloud range afew months ago and after putting them on I got told i looked constantly shocked they came up to my eyebrows too which looked sooooo unnatural and they were way to thick.....then awhile go I bought the Nadine Coyle lashes from the same range and only recently decided to give them a go..........heres what I thought


They were light

They looked so natural

Everyone thought they were my own lashes (I have fairly long lashes anyways but not this full and thick so I was delighted :D)

They stayed on for ages and never seemed to move

Extremely easy to apply

Meshed well with my own lashes

Suited my face and eye shape

There reusable (I cleaned mine with baby oil and took them off with baby oil...never peel or rip off)


Even though on the box it says contact friendly they sort of made my eyes mist up at the start nothing to worry about but for the first 2 minutes I had blurred vision I think it was my lids adjusting lol but other than that they were great with contacts and the glue didn't get into my eyes.

At such an affordable price I really recommend Nadines lashes, Ive always admired hers and am so happy she brought out her own eyelash range. You can pick up the girls aloud range of lashes in a local pharmacy i'm pretty sure Claire's accessories sells them too :D enjoy x

attention:those who find it hard to remove eye make up/waterproof mascara :D

I lways use waterproof mascara no matter which brand im trying and sometimes it is especially hard to take it off at nite and I end up scraping at my lashes with my nails until.......I discovered the secret ingredient in all eye make up removers some that hav helped some that hav not and thats ois....greasy oil :D for the past 6 months i've been taking my eye make up off with johnsons baby oil and its brilliant I love it its soft against my eyes and takes everything off so im not left with panda eyes in the morning :D heres whar you need.....:

1. Baby oil (ive heard that olive oil will work too)

2. 2 cotton pads

3. luke warm face cloth

okay so you've probably realised that yes you put the baby oil on the cotton pad and place it over your eye....simples :D just remember to be patient and leave it in one position, never pub it around otherwise your eye area will get irritated from the pad. Simply place it on your eye, I usually wait 3 mins on each eye then slide the pad down and wipe the mascara off in one swipe of the pad....also when u wipe it off below your eye always wipe towards your tear duct and never to the outer corner of your eye again irritation can occur as the outer corner is more sensitive. this part is advisable but optional....get your luke warm face cloth and dab both eyes and leave 2 dry or bad again with a dry cloth.....never EVER drag a cloth across your face its so so bad for your skin. make sure the baby oil does not get into your eyes again just by spacing it on the eye and not being rough it wont get in the eye....believe me i've had this problem before. and make sure you just apply to eyes and not the whole face. hey presto :D i've also tried vaseline on my eyes and so has my mam for removing makeup its pretty much the same procedure except with vaseline instead of oil however personally it was to thick i preferred the oil :D enjoy x

Enourmous Lash.....shall I lash out the cash or not???

Enormous Lash is priced in the States as $95.00 that on top of shipment is $120.00......if any of you arent familiar with this product it is a lash enhancing liquid that you apply to the upper and lower (optional) lash line like a liquid liner, twice daily.....and when I say daily I mean religiously try not to miss a day. Anyways, after 3-4months majority of customers have said they've noticed a huge difference with there lashes apparently they have grown and are thicker too. I've read the testimonials and had a look at the before and after pictures however I have also heard that it can be very irritation for it worth forking out up to $100 for????i wanna hear your views and tell me if you've tried anything else too similar to this brand. for more info go to enjoy x

If there one thing I swear by its exfoliation of the face and body, nothing says gorgeous like dead skin free face. I use "Honey....Snap out of it" by Benefit. Its supposed to be used 2 or 3 times weekly but I only use it once a week I don't want to be to harsh on my skin. I also love "Dear John" moisturizer, its aaaaamazing and it smells lovely. I started using it because I used tee tree wash on my face which resulted in my already dry skin flaking and bleeding....yes it got that bad so I immediately went to my local Benefit counter and they recommended "Dear John" so Id only advise it for dry skin it did wonders for me but its pricey and gets used up soooo fast so i'm on and off it.....just thinking about the grapey smell and feel it gives against my skin makes me want to buy more lol!enjoy x
