WhatLauraWore & My Make Up: #NorthMeetUp & some Kiss Lashes

A couple of weeks ago I made the journey to Manchester for the #NorthMeetUp organised by one of my blogging friends Em from the blog EmTalks.  A great day was had by all filled with beauty, skincare, hair and cocktails.  I got to meet SO many gorgeous bloggers and I really had fun getting to know everyone.  The event was held in Revolution and it was packed, I had to practically fight my way out the door armed with many goodie bags.  I’ll be reviewing the full sized products I received over the coming months and testing out some of the sample sizes too.  I wanted to share with you the outfit I wore to the meet up.  I dressed pretty casually with it being a daytime event but kept it girlie with a summer dress from New Look and my cropped denim jacket by Joe Browns from Simply Be.  I’m carrying my latest Louis and I have my rose gold Ray Bans in my hand.  On my feet I’m wearing my gorgeous flower sandals from the Primark haul I posted in My Summer Footwear Update post.  I can tell these are going to be worn to death this summer!

Make up wise, I kept it simple with pretty much the same make up that I wore in this post with the addition of some GORGEOUS false lashes.  This is a great make up look for some daytime spring glam.

Kiss are brand that I’ve been familiar with for a while now.  They make eye lashes like the ones I have here as well as other cosmetics, hair tools and nail products.  These aren’t the first lashes I’ve tried from Kiss as I had some of their Ever EZ Eye Lashes but in all honestly, they weren’t for me, mainly because I didn’t need the strings attached with them to apply them so we didn’t get on.  These lashes however, I LOVE.

The eyelashes I have here are the Kiss Haute Couture lashes in FLIRT.  The shape of these lashes is my favourite out of all eye lash styles available from any brand.  They’re shorter at the inner corner of the eye and get longer as they go out to the outer corner.  I find that this particular style looks flirty and feminine and really opens the eye.  They’re a subtle kind of sexy and make them perfect for dressed up day make up looks or for evening wear.

The box contains easy to read instructions, eye lash glue, an applicator and of course, the lashes.  I didn’t use the glue, simply because I use my Duo Lash Adhesive that’s a huge tube and already open but I did pop the glue in my purse in case the lashes came away while I was out… which of course, they didn’t!  I trimmed the lashes slightly to fit my eye shape and I found that the lashes held their curve fairly well.  They were SO easy to apply and that is thanks to the pink applicator.  This works absolute wonders and I’m so pleased I have it in my make up tools stash.  The curve on the applicator was great for really pressing the lashes into my lash line and as they open a bit like tweezers, I was able to squeeze my lashes to the false ones.

The lashes feel so light weight on the eye that I could hardly tell that I was wearing them so not only do they look fairly natural but they feel it too.

They’re available from Boots and I particularly like that you can get them in multi packs as this saves money and makes sure you’ve always got a pair to hand.  I will most definitely buy these again.  

Have you tried Kiss lashes before, what did you make of them?
