Following on from the success of the Eylure ‘Girl’s Aloud’ range of lashes which I love, they have now produced a Sex in the City collection inspired by Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte. Each lash is embellished with a single silver star in the corner, perfect for the party season. £6.95 from Boots
Eylure are also responsible for the ‘double lashes’ trend worn by the likes of Cher & Katie from X Factor. In fact Cher apparently wears 2 or 3 pairs of these double lashes at one time. Not a look I favor personally but each to her own. £6.95 from Boots or Superdrug.
Jane Iredale individual lashes are very expensive compared to their high street counterparts, especially as you can only use them once. I’m not sure why they are so pricey, I tested them out and couldn’t detect any discernible difference. They do come with latex-free glue but you can get this anywhere. However these individual lashes are very easy to apply on yourself with a set of tweezers if you aren’t too practiced. £17.95 from www.janeiredale.com
New brand Eye Candy has several lovely styles ranging from very natural to fluttery, and are designed to give you a slightly 60′s look to the eye. They are very affordable, easy to apply, and if you’re careful with them, can be worn several times. £4.49 from Boots.
Illamasqua’s Dystopia lash collection remind me more of Shu Uemura’s range of statement lashes, they’re a lot more theatrical and are attached to a thicker strip which I personally find a bit harder to apply because they are slightly stiffer, but the variety of styles is great. This is what Illamasqua has to say about the range; Illamasqua has created a collection that echoes the artistry of 1920s Berlin’s darkest films. A world of broken shadows and stark light, a distorted, nightmarish, mad reality. With eerie shades and twisted monochromatic tones, fused with a burst of neon colour, Dystopia is as cruel as it is beautiful. Oooh-er!
