Product Review…Katy Perry Lashes by Eylure

For all your beauty advice…

Award-winning Eylure, the eyelash specialists, have released their new collection designed exclusively by platinum-selling recording artist and global pop superstar, Katy Perry!

Known for her fashionable and unique personal style, Katy Perry is expanding her exclusive beauty portfolio with the launch of her first false lash collection. Teaming with Eylure, (leading British lash specialists which are currently taking the US by storm), Perry supervised every aspect of her signature lash range. Katy Perry Lashes created by Eylure are a direct extension of Katy’s style and will provide fans with the perfect blend of sweet and sexy!

Katy’s four distinct varieties include:

Sweetie Pie: A dainty, natural hair lash that will discreetly add length and volume to your own lashes.

Oh, Honey!: A flatteringly full lash, textured for a natural finish but with enough volume to take your lashes from fine to fab!

Cool Kitty: Because they will make your eyes look amazing. Gorgeous framing with manicured tips, these lashes can be worn in the day to be daring or at night as the perfect finishing touch.

Oh, My!: It is big and beautiful with a layered effect. All the texture you could want in a lash yet so wearable and really flattering. Be daring, go double effect!

These lashes were fun to play with and easy to wear. I don’t wear false lashes on a daily basis, but I reach for them occasionally. I tried Sweetie Pie, and Oh, My! From this line. Sweetie Pie was a more natural look, and really made my eyes look defined and my lashes naturally long. Oh, My! is a more dramatic look that gives you very thick, volumized lashes. Either way, they were fun and playful…just like Katy Perry! They are priced right, and durable, so you can use them time and time again.

All Katy Perry by Eylure lashes retail for $6.99 at ULTA Beauty Stores nationwide and on www.ULTA.com

As always, I look forward to your feedback, so let me know your thoughts when you try them!

You’ve Been Beautified!

I’m Baaaaaack!!

For all your beauty advice…

Hi! Remember me? It’s been a while, hasn’t it? How long has it been? Well, by my calculations, it’s been over 5 months since I last did a review. I have made random comments here and there on my Facebook and Twitter pages, but a full-on review has not been forthcoming in a long time. Why? you may ask. Well, life got in the way. Oh how I wish I had the life of the cute little darling on my Facebook profile picture…Princess Brooke sitting at a vanity, playing with products all day. In a perfect world, maybe, but not in my world.

A lot has happened in the 5 months since my last review. First of all, I got a new position at work, and it’s taken every ounce of my brain power to learn my new position. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. It is the job I have wanted for a long time, and it’s finally mine, so I’m handling it with care, and devoting 110% of myself to learn the job, and be the best I can possibly be. It’s kind of a big deal. It’s been very “Brooke-consuming” so that’s one reason I fell off the face of the earth. I also have 2 children, one of them a teenager now, who I love dearly, but I have to be honest in saying, they suck any energy out of me that I may have left over from my day at work. Suffice it to say, they are totally worth it, but they need me, and they need my 100% attention once I get home. Let’s not forget I am also married, so figuring out a date night, or even 5 minutes alone with my husband, who works opposite shifts than I do, is time-consuming as well.

Ok, we’ve established the basic facts…I am human and my life got crazy. But, I want everyone to know that just because I have been MIA, doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about all the amazing support and feedback I have gotten from my readers and from vendors who ask for my reviews. I am getting back into this. I have found out that I miss it…I miss giving my unsolicited opinion, offering advice, and trying product, product, and more product! My love for this industry and all things Beauty has not withered away and died. It is in me, alive and kicking and I want to be a part of this world again. I would love to resurrect Q&A Monday, but I need your help on that. If you have Q’s, I have A’s, so send them my way, and let me greet you on Monday mornings. I am here for you, I have advice/opinions on just about everything in this industry, and if I haven’t learned about something yet, you can bet your bottom dollar I really, really want to!

So, tell me what you’ve been up to in the last 5 months. What products have you discovered? What products have you decided you can live without? What products are you wanting to try, but not sure it’s worth the investment? As always, I look forward to your thoughts! You can email me any questions or comments to brookeknowsbeauty@hotmail.com

And in the words I have missed saying….You’ve Been Beautified!
