May Rate Or Hate

Looking back at May it hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be. With a month of exams that don't finish until the middle of the June, I was honestly dreading May but I have been pleasantly surprised. Of course not everything was great this month (I'm looking at you C2 maths exam) but I've formed great memories by making the most of every moment I've been able to spend with my friends in between exams. 

Not everything is perfect and this shows in this months rate or hate -

Maybelline Baby Lips and Eyelure Naturals No 015 Eyelashes 
Rate - 
In the past I've never been a fan of strip eyelashes, all I ever saw on the high street were thick fake lashes that made you look like an extra on TOWIE or beautiful fluttery eyelashes that looked great in the packaging but brushed against my eyebrow they were that long. But after seeing these beautifully re-branded Eyelure lashes in boots I decided once again to give strip lashes a chance. The No 015 eyelashes by Eyelure are the perfect eyelash, they thicken and lengthen the appearance of your lashes but without looking fake or unnatural. I'm no pro at applying false eyelashes either but these were so easy that I put them on perfectly first time saving a lot of time compared to my usual individual lashes. Will I be repurchasing them? Definitely!

Hate - 
I feel like a bit of a hypocrite having the Maybelline Baby Lips as this months hate as I vaguely remember including it as a rate sometime last year, but I can honestly say that my opinion of them has changed since then. Honestly, the Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms are nothing special, they don't particularly moisturize or hydrate my lips and since I started using them I haven't noticed a dramatic difference in the appearance of my lips. Looking back now I may have fallen under the pressure of the hype because truthfully cheap and cheerful Carmex does a better job at moisturizing my painfully dry lips.

I'd love to hear how your May been, did you rate it or hate it?

  2. I haven't tried false eyelashes in years due to a few bad experiences but maybe I should give them another try and they can look great.

  8. I saw Baby Lips on so many blogs and finally bought it recently and found it pretty useless, glad I am not the only one.

  9. I'm with you on the Baby Lips thing. I bought 3 of them and hated all of them. Hype got the better of me!

  10. I think I overused carmex some years ago and it no longer does anything to me. I'm surprised to read this. I feel like baby lips has done miracles to my lips...
