Review: PS (Primark) false eyelashes

Hi there! How you doing?! Happy FridayIsAlmostThereDay!

Any plan for this weekend? I was just thinking: Plans to do nothing are still plans, amirite?!

Anyways, on this beautiful Thursday, I want to talk about these lashes I got from Primark- a “review” as they call it around here!

So eyelashes. Up to October last year, I had never worn any because I didn’t know how or because I never had any real reason to. However, for my pageant night, we had a MUA and she put on some eyelashes for me. Oh boy they felt weird. The whole time I was so conscious of them sitting on my eyelids and throughout, I felt like I had a curtain over my eyes.

(You might or might not be able to see them but that was my look anyways)

Mind you, I had received nice false lashes before- from friends or my subscription boxes but I just kept them, not really knowing what to do with them.

Back in January I set myself a challenge to learn how to apply false lashes… didn’t do it!

In April, I said enough and went for it. Before I abused the lashes I had (from the Vintage CompNy and what not) I thought I would try with another beautiful BUT cheaper set.

Found just that in Primark. £1 a pair. Perfect if you’re not regular eyelashes wearer like me.

I wanted to wear all three styles before reviewing but after trying Full Look and Sultry, the Natural lashes did not look too natural and very appealing. As of now, they are still in their box whilst I have gone through 2 pairs of the other 2.

Here’s my thought: I loved them!!

The sultry lashes

The Full Look lashes

They are both really beautiful but I think I loved the Full Look most because funnily enough, I thought they looked the most natural out of the 2. So natural that I did not even want to try the actual Natural lashes 😩😌. I will… eventually.

Now… they are cheap and beautiful, a decent size, what’s the catch? Well, the glue!! The glue that comes in the pack is pretty much rubbish- in my humble opinion!

So yes, but the lashes but most definitely get yourself a better glue.

I have tried another brand around the same time. Loved them too but they were from tkmaxx so I would have to ram the internet to find another pair.

I still have to practise applying them but I thought I did really well on my first time. In fact I was soooooo gassed that I had to document it on my Instagram.

Have you tried any of the Primark eyelashes? I saw that they have other ones (G.W.A)- another brand altogether. They are also a bit more pricey but probably worth the price.

Let a sista know what you think in the comments below.

Finishing point? #100squatsaday challenge.

Finishing point? #100squatsaday challenge.

Good morning! Happy Monday/ Happy new week!

That’s it: today is the last day of my #100squatsaday challenge that was announced in this post right here. 100 squats a day for 30 days. It’s now time to assess and reflect.

Bonjour bonjour! Une nouvelle semaine qui commence avec de nouvelles opportunités à saisir!
Ça y est: aujourd’hui est le dernier jour de mon #100squatsaday challenge que j’avais annoncé dans ce post-ci. 100 squats par jour pendant 30 jours. Il est temps de faire le bilan.


I don’t know if any Tom Dick and Harry can see a difference but I can see it and even better I can literally measure it.

Je ne sais pas si tout le monde peut physiquement voir la différence mais je sais que je peux la mesurer. 
Left: starting point and right: 3 days before the official end of the challenge.

What’s next? I think that doing this challenge did me really well in the way that I had to train or exercise every single day for a whole month. So my fitness definitely improved. IssaWin! I think I’m going to carry on squatting everyday but I’m looking at 50 (minimum) and without filming them. Also, I’m considering a new challenge for May with a focus on abs. Would you like to take part in it? Let me know in the comments and also, follow my Insta where I post a set everyday.

Que faire maintenant? Je pense que ça m’a fait du bien ce challenge dans le sens que j’ai dû m’entrainer/ faire des exercices chaque jour pendant un mois. Donc, mon niveau de fitness s’est clairement amélioré.. WOOP WOOP! Je pense que je vais continuer à faire des squats chaque jour mais je vais plutôt en faire 50 (minimum) et sans les filmer. J’envisage aussi de commencer un nouveau challenge avec un focus sur les abdos. Si tu veux participer au challenge, dis-le moi dans les commentaires et suis moi sur Insta où je poste un set d’exercice chaque jour.

@MyEbonyBox review- 3-in-1

Hello there!

How are you doing? How was your day? Your week? How is work? Or school? Or uni? I have been doing a lot of work on myself recently and oh boy have I been slacking with my reviews. Sorry about that.

It’s started to feel like my blog was all about My Ebony Box and nothing else. I’m trying to re-think things through and see what has been going well and what I can do to improve it all.
