Yeah, this is about as neutral and practical as I get, hehee!
I’m going to be 40 in 4 months so naturally I’m doing the adult thing and wearing this type of kawaii-goth style I used to wear all of the time in my early 20’s – early 30’s hehee!

Even though this has been one of the weirdest years I’ve had, being in ‘lockdown’ isn’t that different from having chronic fatigue anyway really. Lots of telly watching, reading, putting outfits together for no particular reason, eating copious amounts of takeaway and going out to have a quick drink, when I’m able.
Leave your questions or comments below and I will consult my foggy (but sometimes, strangely encyclopaedic) brain to reply to them lol
Everything I post on this blog gets posted (in an abridged format) to my Instagram, as well as me posting one lifestyle photo everyday of the year there too.
I’d say this sums me up surprisingly well!

As you probably know by now, I’m Dyspraxic so faffing about with eyelash glue and false lashes has extremely messy, if rather amusing consequences. Not a realistic option!
This is why I jumped at the chance of reviewing Lola’s magnetic lash kit £35. The lashes ‘stick’ to the metallic eyeliner which comes with the kit. Afterward the just gently peel off (they are reusable) and liner removed with oil (which also comes in the kit).
I’ve been given two styles of lashes (there are six in total, with different options for kits, colours of eyeliner and bundles): The thick, fluttery Diamond style which look fabulous (above) and the more subtle Sapphire style which pass for my real lashes but prettier. I prefer the latter because I can wear these quickly and easily, every time I go out, with hardly any other makeup.
I struggle with the Diamond lashes but the Sapphire one’s are perfect as they don’t crowd my mono-lid or drag down the look of my hooded eyes.
Quite a difference between my normal lashes (left eye) and the falsies (right eye)!
The eyeliner brush is incredibly easy to use and I draw the best flick I’ve ever done but I still manage to get eyeliner all over (and even inside) the inner corner of my eye. After I’ve spread that everywhere by trying to clean it up with the oil on a cotton pad, I let it dry. The lashes themselves are fairly easy to apply. I think they actually lift my hooded eyelids too!
What do you think? I would love to hear your comments as always.
I hope everyone has the purrrfect Halloween. 😺
I needed a cat nap earlier but I’m really getting into it meow. 😸
Sorry if I’ve made your brain fall into uncanny-valley territory. It’s less scary than the cast of the film Cats though I’m sure! 🙀
