Sugarpill and Illamasqua Mermaid Look and Paperself Giveaway!

Oooooh, I really need to learn how to take better photos! This looked so much better in real life, but ain’t that always the way? I did not want to take this look off – so SHINY!

Eyes: LA Colours Jumbo Eye Pencil in, Sugarpill Lumi, Sugarpill Darling, Sugarpill Royal Sugar, Elf Lock and Seal, Collection2000 Extreme Coloured Mascara in Teal, flat back pearls from eBay, Paperself lashes
Cheeks: Illamasqua Powder Eyeshadow in “Maybe?”, Sugarpill Lumi
Lips: Illamasqua Apocalips, Sugarpill Lumi, clear Inglot Sleeks gloss.

I think these are my favourite eyebrows ever. Mmmm, teal. I was feeling in the mood to use some Sugarpill today, as I thought they’re the perfect company for a mermaid look! Sugarpill Darling is one of those Goldilocks colours that's pretty simple, but  just right!

Aren’t these lashes AMAZING? My sister got me them for my birthday, and I finally got round to using them.  If you’ve not heard of Paperself lashes before, they’re laser-cut eyelashes made out of paper and they have some beautifully wierd and wonderful versions! I cut mine down because they were really really long, so I have some cute fish half-lashes for another time – even though the box says “suggested for single use only,” you’ll get at least two uses straight from the packet. I did manage to take them off carefully and I’ll get another use of them for sure, but I think if I screwed up the lashband, I could cut off the fish parts and stick them to some other lashes if I really wanted! If you want to use them a few times, I'd recommend not wearing them over shadow, as it's hard to peel the glue/shadow combination off the lashbands without them breaking. Also, you obviously can't clean them afterwards, so it's up to you if you even *want* to re-use them.

You can see how long they are here, it’s ridiculous!

  1. What a cool look. I love the brows, I've always wanted to colour my brows in a different colour. I've yet to get up the courage to do so.

    I adore those Paperself lashes. I keep wanting to buy some. They're genius things aren't they! This is an awesome giveaway. :)

    2. It's actually an eyeshadow by Illamasqua, it's called Maybe?. I think it's discontinued but it's kind of a purple magenta colour.

  5. Today I was in a bad mood, but then I saw a gif of a porcupine eating watermelon and now I'm not in a bad mood anymore.

    (on a serious note. Those lashes are beautiful. I saw some once before but only in packaging - this is the first time I've seen them applied and they are stunning!)

  7. So much awesomeness going on here! So much shiny-ness! Love the teal brows and lips! I thought at first that was eyeliner art around your lash line.... But I see those are actually falsies!

  20. WOW! Super awesome look! The teal eyebrows and lips are awesome! I have a bunch of these as Sephora was clearing them out awhile ago, you can definitey wear them more than once which isn't necessarily the most hygenic thing but it can be done. Did you find them to be just huge? I had to cut mine a lot before wearing them.
