Review // Lash Lift at The Urban Beauty Lounge

Processed with VSCO with b1 preset

All of the most interesting beauty recommendations tend to come from my dear friend Tori, and this one is no exception. During a dinner towards the end of last year I couldn’t stop looking at her eyelashes as they look so perfectly curled, dense and fluffy (dream lashes). She told me she’d been for a lash lift, a procedure I was familiar with but had never really been tempted to try…until I saw the results in real life.

Collection Libre launched on 14 November 2016. These limited edition items tend to sell like hotcakes, so I’d get myself to a Chanel counter sharpish if you want to…

Colourpop Haul | All Dolled Up

Well, I did warn you. As you’ll know if you watched my ColourPop Unboxing video, I was thrilled with all of my purchases and have been dying to order more. A recent promotion offering free international delivery* was all the incentive I needed so here’s what I bought the second time around:
