I'm always on the look out for new beauty finds and so far I've been yet to find a good foundation that agrees fully with my skin. As some of you may know I have troublesome skin, I suffer with breakouts and find it can become very dry.

These hauls come round so fast but here we go again back with my monthly Primark Haul. These are definitely my favourite posts as it means I get to go on a massive shopping spree.

So after last month I know I featured a lot of essentials. This month I wanted to try and pick up a lot more fashion and season based pieces. The day I went shopping to pick all of these pieces up we were experiencing what I'm calling summer for us in the UK. The sun was shining it was very warm. I say was it has somehow disappeared and we are back the doom and gloom of the grey skies. I can't complain too much as it is still really warm.

I've recently been getting into a lot more of the American make up brands (you guys are so lucky! I'm genuinely looking at booking flights to America just so I can do a weekend of make up shopping)

I heard a lot of Youtubers talking about the House of Lashes, especially their Iconic lashes. I'd heard from a few people they were the only lashes they used and even the best glue (we've all tried so many glues that never work haven't we?)

I then stumbled upon them on Instagram and become hooked on their photos of all the beautiful lashes they had available. 

I used to be a big lash addict wearing them every day and even as far as lash extensions which ruined my old lashes so about two years I ditched them and decided to go au natural. That was until I seen the Iconic lashes in all their glory for myself.

I ordered one of their sets of three as I thought with the shipping it makes more sense to buy a couple more pairs in case I liked them. These worked out at $30 instead of $36 so I then decided what a great opportunity to get hold of the glue as well. I got the white glue which dries clear and that was $8.

The shipping was so fast and arrived within 10 working days. I was fully prepared to wait for around 3 weeks with it coming from America so I was pleasantly surprised. When they arrived they were beautifully packaged in tissue paper with little ribbons in the box and it does make it feel like a little present from the lash angels.

The lashes them selves are on quite a thick band which for me is great as I find they hold their shape much better but I know this isn't everyone's cup of tea. Te Iconic lashes are renowned for being quite hard to get hold of and I can fully appreciate why. I've never tried this shape before but I love how they look on the eyes.

The glue is amazing! The best glue I've ever used in my life. Even in the heat of this mini heat wave we've just had in England. Hotter than Ibiza can I just add! They lasted all night through dancing away in a very hot nightclub. There was no little spider crawling down my face and didn't once feel worried they were hanging off. The glue also smells a little floral and not the usual suspect smell that most glues have which is also an added bonus.

Overall I'm so glad I took the plunge and ordered from House of Lashes. I'll definitely be trying out some more of their styles in the very near future!
