Sweetheart Lashes: Product Info, Review and Look


Hello lovelies, today I'd like to introduce you to a fairly new brand that was only launched earlier this year. They are also new to me, so I was very excited to try them out. Sweetheart Lashes are a Canada-based brand that specialize in providing the highest quality 100% mink lashes.

All of Sweetheart's lashes are cruelty free, hypo-allergenic and meticulously hand-crafted, and are available in a stunning array of different styles, lengths, and volumes. The lashes range from between $20 - $30 a pair which may seem a tad pricey at first to those who aren't regular wearers of mink lashes. But, bare in mind they can generally be worn up to an incredible 25 times if properly care is taken, making these extremely great value for money! All styles come with a very sturdy cotton lash band that helps maintain the shape of the lashes, ensuring even more durability compared to regular lashes. 

Below are all three styles that I received and a little more information about them.

Length: 1/5

TEASE Lashes - US$20.00
"A great starter lash! Perfect for those who are new to wearing false eyelashes or if you’re looking for something simple & elegant. These lightweight lashes will look like your own natural eyelashes but with more volume & length."
Volume: 2/5
Length: 2/5

The lashes themselves feel incredibly lightweight on the eyes and are very soft to the touch, making them extremely comfortable to wear. Even whilst adding significant volume and length, I still find all of these lashes to be very natural looking. After browsing through Sweetheart's website, it's safe to say they really do provide a lash style to suit everybody and any occasion!

Rainbow Glitter Liner

Look at this 'The Fair' glitter from Violet Voss - isn't it amazing?! I couldn't stop looking at it and I definitely didn't want to take it off! 

It's my first time using Violet Voss glitters after having seen them around online for quite a while and now I am in loooooove. I'm not sure I have ever been so excited over a glitter before. It makes me want to sprinkle it all over myself and go out and dance in rainbow glittery heaven.

Warm & Smokey

Something warm, smokey and sultry with a heavy dramatic eyeliner today - one of my favourite looks to do, and looks good all year round too. This is similar to what I'd choose to wear on a night out whenever I decide to steer away from my boring typical winged eyeliner for a change.

Loving these gorgeous super long Demi lashes from Lash Boutique. You can't really go wrong with a Demi style lash when you want something a little lighter but still has that added impact.

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion in 'Eden'
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Nude' eyeshadow (from the 'Maya Mia' palette) blended into crease
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Warm Taupe' eyeshadow (from the 'Maya Mia' palette) blended into crease and lower lash line
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills 'Sienna' eyeshadow (from the 'Maya Mia') palette) blended into crease and lower lash line

Sunrise

Here's a little something to hopefully brighten your day :) With a little bit of glitter thrown in!

I'm really loving these lashes that are new to me from Lash Boutique. They're so girly and so light on the eyes that I can't even tell that I'm wearing false lashes. 

They're also the first lashes I've tried that come with a black glue rather than a clear one and I much prefer it. I've always found that clear glue doesn't always dry, well, clear. And as I wear black eyeliner 95% of the time, it saves me from having to go and touch up the glue with my eyeliner - yay!




EYES:
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color in 'Yellow' blended into crease as base
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color in 'Barbie Pink' all over lid and lower lash line as base
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color in 'Ice Blue' along lower waterline
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Waterproof Creme Color in 'Jet' to line upper waterline
  • Concrete Minerals Pro Matte Eyeshadow in 'Fame' blended into crease
  • Concrete Minerals Pro Matte Eyeshadow in 'Hi-Fi' all over lid and lower lash line
  • Collection Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Liner in 'Dancing Queen' along lower lash line
  • Tarte Tarteist Clay Paint Liner to line eyes
  • Elizabeth Arden Maximum Volume Mascara
  • Lash Boutique 'Lydia' false lashes

BROWS:
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in 'Caramel'
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in 'Caramel'
