So today was one of those days and then I missed my bus home from work meaning I had to wait 25 minutes for the next one, So I decided to pass the time and jump into “watt brothers” for about the 4th time in my life just to see what they did.
I came across some of their make up, ranging from certain benefit products, Maybelline and Revlon to the cheaper brands I hadn’t heard of. Some of the lipstick colours caught my eye and I thought I would give them a try and for 99p, I didn’t really care what they would be like if i’m honest as I wasn’t expecting much!
The brand of these is “Constance Carroll” and I can honestly say I’ve never heard of it! I got 3 shades; Passion Pink, Sweet Berry & Damson, all 99p each.
I didn’t expect the colour to be as good as they are but they all look like the shades they do in this photo. The lipsticks are full of moisture, a little bit too moist but again, can’t argue with that for the price. They go on really easily, a bit too messy and don’t last very long but all in all, I think for the price they are really good.
Quick photo of them on (Didn’t have a mirror so used the apple mirror on the back of my iphone haha)
Just a rough look at how they are on and as you can see, the colours are really lovely!
Value for money, colours are brillant, might not be the best for lasting all day or a matte finish but I’m glad I picked these up :).

Today, I decided to go into boots for a look around to see what I could treat myself to and I picked up a “Soap and Glory Highlighter - All out luminizing face powder” for about £11.00.
I think in the summer months and when the sun is out, it is important to give your skin that healthy glow it needs and to give a radiant finish to your make up.
I’ve had quite a few questions about highlighter in the past, where do you apply it to ect and I thought this little photo would help anyone with those questions!
The idea of using a highlighter, is to put it on places that will catch the light. It should never ever be used for coverage as the pigmentation in highlighter will only draw attention to these areas and for all the wrong reasons.

Okay, so if you keep up to date with my posts on this, which isn’t hard right now because I haven’t been posting as much as I would like, you will know I had an eyelash 3D extension about a month ago now and I just wanted to fill you in on how they have been and tell you some things about them!
First of all, when I got the eyelash extension I was so pleased with the results, not having to bother with any mascara was a god send. Fixing my make up for work was done within like 5 minutes because I didn’t feel the need for much make up as the extension made such a difference!
After the first week or two, they were starting to really annoy me, I’m not the kind of sleeper that stays in one place through out the night, so mostly every morning when I woke up, I had to try fix them back in place as they were going in all sort of directions. Still, they were easy to put back in place and I could deal with that.
Now, there are hardly any and really starting to bug me. The extensions will not come off my eyelashes without ripping out about 4 of my real eyelashes at a time. They are clumpy and when waking up in the morning, if the ones that are left are going in all sort of directions, I can barely budge them, forcing me to pull it out and out comes some of my actual eyelashes with it. I was told that if you use oil on them, they will loosen and simply come off but this is not the case at all. I’ve tried using oils, water, creams and everything else but they don’t seem to want to move.
So now, they just look rubbish and using mascara wouldn’t help at all, so it’s just a case of waiting for my eyelashes to grow and the extensions to fall out but my patience with them is not very high right now so I might book an appointment to have them removed and if i don’t have any eyelashes left, I might just cry (haha seriously).
Photo below is them right now, no make up on so you can see how they look;
(They look worse in this photo but I just wanted to show the extent of them by lifting up to show them!)
Would I get them again? Not too sure, I don’t like the fact my eyelashes are falling out along with the extensions, so probably not. I have heard they also ruin your real eyelashes, so you feel you always need the extension.
I just wanted to share this for anything thinking of getting them, as chances are, you will be told only the good things about them and not the bad! Hopefully this helps. All the talk about the way you care about them is rubbish because I have been super careful with them and they still have been all over the place!
Have you had them before? What is your experience? Let me know!
