Metamorphosis Lashes

Met.a.mor.pho.sis : A change of form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one, by natural or supernatural means.

A few weeks ago I saw Marijanna Martin Makeup on Facebook offer free samples* to other MUAs of her new range of lashes.  I quickly jumped at the chance, as you all know I am a big fan of lashes the bigger the better and I am constantly on the look out for good affordable lashes.




Notice something? All styles are named after iconic Hollywood screen sirens. They are perfect for creating vintage looks as well as amping up your Saturday night makeup. 

Here I am wearing Vivienne-Leigh lashes which are my upmost favorite of all three. For such a full lash you would expect for them to weigh down your eyes. but Metamorphosis lashes are so light and have thin bands. That not only are they easy to apply but they blend in naturally with your own lashes and there is none of that lazy eye effect you can get with badly made lashes. Also no need to track with eyeliner.

In this picture I am wearing Marilyn, as you can see I also have some lashes on the bottom. These are the ends of the Marilyn lashes that instead of throwing away I kept after cutting the lash to shape. Waste not want not!

Unfortunately I had a problem with my camera and my pictures of Audrey lashes were lost and then I misplaced one of the lashes. But what I can say about wearing them is they were light weight , they stayed on all night, they were not my favorite lash but that was nothing to do with the making of them just personal preference. 

I can most defiantly say I will be ordering all 3 sets of lashes again for my kit, and myself. If good care is taken of these lashes they can last up to ten times. Ive worn Vivienne-Leigh 5 times now and their still going strong. (Good care does not mean yanking them off in that sexy move you do in front of your boy before bedtime).

Metamorphosis Lashes are available online for only £3.00 each so less then €3.50 on current exchange rate. The company is based in Northern Ireland so delivery is speedy.

I am expecting big things from this company if these lashes are anything to go by. I can not wait to see what styles Marijanna comes out with next as her makeup artistry is very creative and out of the box and would love to see that reflected in her lashes.

Maybelline Fit Me Fits Me Perfect!

I have been in serious need of a new foundation for some time, I had been mixing and matching different shades out my kit for weeks because I did not have the right shade. I went on countless trips to Boots and Penneys hmming and hawing over countless foundations wondering should I try a new one or stick to the old reliable that is L'oreal True Match. 

So it was 7am one night after work and I was still buzzing from all the energy I had in work that I decided to catch up on my Youtube subscriptions. GossMakeupArtist had just put up a new video about Maybelline Fit Me Foundation and after watching it I was sold! The next day I was straight down to Liffey Valley Boots and low and behold it was buy one get one half price on Maybelline. I also ran out of powder around the same time as my foundation and I am still waiting for my mam to send up some MUA Cosmetics powders as she lives near a Superdrug. So I decided to pick up the powder also and with it been half price it was less then five euros!
Fit Me Foundation 120 Swatch

To say I am in love with it would not do this product justice! I want to refill my makeup kit with this foundation. Its coverage is perfect (medium/full) which can be sheered out with a beauty blender, its finish is satin and I was a matte girl before but this just gives me a glow and no cakyness in sight.

Fit Me Foundation 120 blended out
It comes in a collection of shades and in yellow and pink tones which is great for a drugstore foundation. Its packaging is simple and chic which I love because I really do not fussy bottles. I have heard people refer that its a take on a MAC bottle frankly it is similar but it does not bother me. Oh and it is less then 12 euro!!
Fit Me Powder 125 swatch

The Fit Me powder it has not blown me away like the foundation but it does its job, there is no really bad word to say about it. It is light in coverage the box has a little handy mirror and a puff which I never use just because I prefer a brush. I got half a shade up from the foundation as I taught the 120 in the powder just looked a little too light compared to the foundation and 125 matches the foundation better in my opinion anyway.

Girls if you have not tried this foundation yet I can not stress how much you should and let me know your thoughts on it. 

Two makeup looks which you saw in the last post of me wearing the foundation and powder.

Faces of December/ Christmas/New Years

Another faces post, I rather like doing these more then face of the day post so I will probably do these monthly from now on. As some of you might not know I work in a nightclub and a little requirement is to dress to impress or as my manager puts it "Sex Sells". Some of you my find that derogatory but the fact is I adore my job and getting to play around with looks that I may only get to wear when I am heading out with the girlos is soo much fun! And frankly all I do is serve drinks and throw a few bottles around!

New year I said I needed to start experimenting more with colors and start wearing blue which is a color I can not stand for some reason and try veer away from my normal smokey eye look. Slowly but surely I am getting there and I am even wearing out the blue in public.

So here is the looks any questions just leave them in the comments box or requests for tutorials!

A grey/silver smokey eye and Sleek pout paint lips in Pin Up

I'm back wearing strip lashes the bigger the better!

Glitter Glitter!

A rare night out and not a smokey eye in sight! Golden Eye

Date night look just a tad bit of a smokey eye and some mega long individual lashes!

All blue!
