Beauty: NEW Battington Lashes at Space NK

Posted on June 7, 2017

Hi Guys!

You may not have heard of Battington Lashes if you’re in the UK – they’re a US based luxury lashe brand that have just launched at Space NK, and I have the full lowdown for you today…

Battington Lashes was created by Sirine Swed to fill a gap in the market – where most lashes today are either synthetic, or even blunt cut human hair or mink (!!!) the creators behind Battington wanted to offer a luxury true-to-life looking lash, that is both animal and cruelty free.

Battington Lashes are made of 100% handmade silk. They look completely real and natural, and also promise to last longer then any other lash, offering up to 25 applications per set.

The benefits of silk lashes appear to be second to none – apart from the cruelty free element, they also look AMAZING – I mean the individual hairs on these lashes look just like real human eyelashes. They are also super lightweight, they hold their curl, and they also last longer that traditional lashes. I have three out of the six lash sets available at Space NK to show you today –

Firstly, the Earheart Silk Lashes (£22.00) – these lashes are super, super fine for a realistic, natural look, perfect for those that don’t want their falsies to be detectable in any way, but want a natural touch of volume to their lashes. Earhart gives a subtle emphasis to the eyes, without creating drama.

Next the Hepburn Silk Lashes (£22.00) – these are basically at the opposite end of the lash spectrum to the above Earhart set. The Hepburn lashes give both dramatic length and volume, with longer length lashes at the outer corners to create an open eye effect.

And lastly the Monroe 3D Silk Lashes (£24.00) – slightly different to the above two sets of lashes, Battington’s ‘3D’ lashes feature a multi-layered silk strip lash, giving a fuller ‘fluffy’ effect. I think the Monroe lashes are my favourite out of the three I have, they’re a nice fluttery, noticeable length, without being too long, and they give great volume – which my short stumpy lashes are missing on a day to day basis. These are perfect to wear both day and night, giving definition, length and volume.

Overall I’m very impressed with Battington Lashes – yes they are expensive, but when you consider how many uses you get out of a set, it’s less than £1.00 per wear, which is nothing really. I love how lightweight and comfortable they are to wear, which really is important if you’re wearing lashes for any length of time, and like I said above, the Monroe 3D Lashes were definitely my favourite out of the three. Space NK also offer two other variations of 3D lashes which would be perfect for those looking for a more intense lash look.

OM Skincare Launches at Space NK

Hi Guys!

I just wanted to let you know about a couple of gorgeous products I’ve been trying out lately from luxury skincare brand OM Skincare – and also let you know that OM has just launched at Space NK, so it’s even easier to get your hands on their products now!

If you haven’t heard of OM Skincare before, I’ll give you a bit of background information – OM Skincare is the brainchild of cosmetic and pharmaceutical scientist, Dr Om Prawarisa. The brand’s philosophy is the belief that your skin is a direct result of your physical and emotional well-being and whilst protecting, preserving and transforming skin, encourages mindfulness.

OM Skincare’s curated collection of luxury skincare products are multi-functioning and results driven, designed as the remedy to today’s modern lifestyles, and their superior formulas have been designed to adapt to all skin types whilst performing in all climates. OM Skincare embraces a mindful approach to skincare and delivers complex formulas that promise to visibly make a difference to the skin.

Starting with the Pure Glow Cleanser (£35.00) – Yes this is expensive for a cleanser, but it really is SO good! This product is designed for all skin types, so wether you have oily skin, dry or combination, it should work well for you. You probably know by now that I have dry and often sensitive skin, so I’m always a bit on the back foot when trying new skincare products. This however was completely problem free – it removed my makeup and left my skin feeling clean, calm and hydrated. The Pure Glow Cleanser also promises to restore skin’s pH levels whilst preserving natural oils, and reduce the onset of blackheads, pimples and acne. So if spots and blemishes  are an issue for you, it could be worth checking this  product out. It also contains Organic Aloe Vera and extracts of Rosewood to help rejuvenate the skin, and Sweet Orange extract which is known to increase the production of collagen.

And the Invisible Finish Primer (£42.50) – this was actually quite a surprising product. I was expecting your bog standard clear primer, but this is actually tinted. I was a bit concerned that it would be too dark for my pale complexion, but it was completely fine, just giving a very sheer veil of colour to brighten the complexion. Because of the tint, this product is great for wearing on it’s own if you want your skin to look perfected with a no-makeup look. It also works well as a base for foundation for when you want your complexion to appear glowing from within. Which brings me on to the fact that I loved that this isn’t a matte primer – which I must admit I was half expecting. It gives the complexion a lovely, healthy glow, whilst also protecting skin from pollution and damaging UVA and UVB rays.

OM Skincare products are available now at .
