Threads Beauty Be-Bop & Sex Kitten Lashes Review

Okay, so where do I start with lashes? Since the first time I ever tried to apply them, I’ve seen lashes as something that is very fiddly, hard to apply, heavy on the eyes and just kind of unnecessary for everyday wear. Saying this however, I have tried quite a few times to apply and wear them (as I do love they way they look), but it has failed every single time. Anyone else have this problem? Surely it can’t just be me! Last week Threads Beauty asked if I’d like to review some of their lashes. I thought I might as well try one last time with falsies. I received them a few days ago and have been trying them out over the past few days. Read my review below.

Threads Beauty describe their lashes as hand-made, extra flexible and comfortable to wear. All of their lashes are made with feather weight technology, helping them from feeling heavy on your eyes like most lashes do. All lashes come with full instructions on the best way to apply them, I will definitely be referring to them! I need all the help I can get with lashes! The glue provided is fragrance and latex free, so should be perfect for even sensitive eyes. I was sent two of their best-selling pairs to try: the Be-Bop and Sex Kitten lashes.

Threads Beauty offer many sets of lashes, from natural-looking varieties to dramatic, glam types, there is something for everyone and every occasion. I was sent a pair from each end of the spectrum. The Be-Bop lashes* are very wispy and fine, they complement everyday makeup very well. They add lots of definition to the eyes and make lashes seem a lot longer. Perfect for those of you who have short eyelashes, like me! The Sex Kitten lashes* are more elegant and look very seductive. They have a winged out effect when worn, which pairs perfectly with liner. I would probably only wear these in the evenings. It took me a few tries to get them on perfectly, I haven’t tried in a long time to wear them, but the instructions definitely helped with application. I applied them with my tweezers instead of fingers as I find this works better for me. I did have to cut the lashes down as they were slightly big for my eyes, but I find that with all lashes. You may not have to cut them down. The glue that comes with most lashes is usually pretty useless, but this glue dried clear and was soon invisible to see. The glue didn’t irritate my eyes and was tacky enough to hold the lashes to my lash line all day. If you are terrible at applying lashes but want to wear them, these could help you get it right. You should definitely try a pair from Threads Beauty before you give up!

All lashes from Threads Beauty cost only £9.00. If you would like to purchase some you can do so through the website. Want to know more? Follow them on Instagram for the latest on their products.

Favourite Pieces Of Jewellery

favourite pieces of jewellery

Jewellery is an essential part of getting dressed in the mornings for me. I feel like jewellery along with other accessories is what completes an outfit. I like a wearing a mix of real and costume jewellery, see my favourite pieces below.

Art Deco Gold Drop Earrings – Don’t you think these earrings look super glam? I like to wear them with my hair up (so I can show them off). I absolutely love the geometric design. It’s one of my favourite styles for jewellery. They’re a piece that can instantly change your look from casual to dressy. As amazing as they are, they can feel a little heavy on your ears after wearing them for a long time.

Mixed Metal Heart Ring – This is the only ring I wear and I wear it everyday on my pinkie finger (it’s too small to fit any other finger now). I actually haven’t taken it off in a very long time (apart from when I was taking these photos of course). I feel lost without it. I love that it mixes gold and silver and the small gem in the centre makes it even more special. I’ve had this piece for years and hope to be wearing it for many more.

Gold Cog/Flower Necklace – Compared to everything else in this post, this piece is rather chunky and bold, which is why I adore it so much. Delicate pieces are great, but statement pieces give a wow factor to your look. I’m not sure if it’s made up of flowers or cogs (I prefer to think of them as flowers). I’m actually thinking about turning this piece into a choker to give it a little update (so keep an eye out for that post).

Light Blue Collar Necklace – This is probably the simplest piece of jewellery I own. I like that it’s quite plain, I can wear it on its own for a more basic look or with more complex and decorative pieces. The colour of this collar necklace is absolutely gorgeous. I definitely want to get more jewellery in this beautiful blue shade now. I can’t believe it only cost me £2.99 in a River Island sale.

Gold Dragonfly Necklace* – This piece was actually gifted to me by Lily-Mo Jewellery (for this post) and I have worn it plenty since I received it. It’s minimal, but still manages to be effortless. You can literally wear it with anything and it’ll look so pretty. I’m so glad I have it in my collection, it will always be a favourite. A dragonfly is such a unique animal, you don’t expect to find it on jewellery.

Gold Charm Bracelet – I got this bracelet for my 14th birthday, and I still absolutely love it. I haven’t added any more charms to it yet, but definitely will. Currently I have mostly animals on it (turtle/owl/lion/cat etc), I also have a teddy bear, a moon, a flower and a few other charms. I’m not sure where this was brought, but I’m sure you could create something similar at a well-known jewellery store.

Orange & Gold Wrap Necklace – I picked up this piece on one of my many trips to Topshop (I go in there ALOT). Orange is one of my favourite shades and I have a weakness for gold jewellery, which is why I couldn’t leave the store without it. I love the style of the necklace, and how it frames the collarbone. It’s a perfect piece for Summer, and will add statement to any outfit.

Silver Seashell Charm Bracelet – I can’t remember when I got this bracelet but I know that I loved it as soon as I saw it. I would never take it off. I actually lost it once (it was far too big for my wrist and dropped off without me noticing) and when I couldn’t find it, I decided to go back to the store and buy another one! This is actually the only silver piece of jewellery I wear at the moment.

Desert Island Beauty Picks

desert-island-beauty-pic

Today’s post as you can probably tell, is all about desert island beauty. Now I know for most people, beauty-enhancing items might not be a top priority (more likely the last thing on your mind) on a desert island, but if you’re like me (obsessed with everything beauty and makeup related) you’ll still want to be looking your best, with the essentials you can’t live without. In this post, I’ll reveal which three makeup picks I’d choose if I should ever be stranded on a desert island. Let’s just forget the fact that no one will actually be seeing me on this imaginary desert island!

Mascara – So the first of my three picks which I’m sure most of you (if not all) will agree with, would definitely be mascara. I love the effect mascara can have on your eyes. It makes you look more awake and gives you big and more open eyes. Also I love the definition you get, which my small eyes need. The mascara that I’m pretty much in love with at the moment is the Maybelline Great Lash in blackest black, obviously. It’s great for natural-looking lashes.

Highlighter – Highlighter looks great on a normal day in London, but on a sun-drenched desert island and on beautifully tanned skin, it would look even better don’t you think? Who wouldn’t want to look all glowy on a desert island? I know I definitely would. My highlighter of choice for this situation would be the Collection Speedy Highlighter. It would be easy and quick to apply, it’s creamy (which I would think works better than powder in the heat) and it’s a gorgeous golden colour.

Lipstick – Lipstick gives an amazing pop of colour to the face, which is why it’s my last choice (not to mention, it’s my favourite beauty product of all time). As we have no eyeshadow or liner, it’s definitely necessary and will make the lips stand out and look super bold. I think with a tan, bright lipstick looks best, so I decided to go for this fuchsia shade from L’Oréal. It’s more like a gloss, but has the intensity of a lipstick (and it moisturises the lips too). Perfect for the desert island look.
