Lou's Reviews : : Eyeko Graffiti Pen Eyeliners

Aloha Bloggerinos,

As you will know, I was a lucky ducky and spent a night the a few weeks ago, living it up at the swish Eyeko Event in London.

At the event we were all given a goodie bag (youtube video HERE ) and we also had the opportunity to pick up the products that were scattered around the room. I've never had anything from Eyeko before so I made full use of this and picked up quite a few things! haha! I am super duper glad I did though and having been using them every day, which is most unlike me because I like to chop and change.
One of the productst I will be reviewing are the Graffiti Pen Eyeliners which retails on the WEBSITE for £5- bargain! I have the black, brown, purple and navy and am in love!! Hello navy blue, oh how I didn't realise how bright you make my eyes! I have always been a kohl eyeliner kinda gal because I struggle to get a good steady hand with the liquid liners. Hoowwweevverr, these little beauties are genius. They look and feel like felt tips to use and because the nip is fairly short and very sturdy, I feel no difference from my preferred kohls. The pigment is amazeballs and drys within seconds.

I love the felt tippyness and know that if they bought out more colours (please do!) I would be first in line! I also found that the longevity of these is brilliant. By the time I go to bed at night, the colour is there just as much as it was in the morning and this is something I could never achieve with my other liners, brucey bonus indeed!

(Look at the thickness variations you can do (ignore the purpley swatches!!)- how many liquid liners can you do that with hmm?)
Eyeko offer free shipping in the UK and Europe and free shipping elsewhere if you spend over a certain amount. Allssooo, as I am now an Ambassador, if you would like to order anything from the website, enter my special code E11341 at the checkout and you will get a free gift with your order! Now who doesn't love a freebie?!

Have you tried these eyeliners before or would you consider treating yourself to one?

Hot Pink Minxy Dresses

Aloha Bloggerinos,

If you have been reading a while, you will remember when I put my never used bridesmaid/cocktail/evening (veerryyyyy versatile) dresses for sale. Well, I was going to put them on eBay, never got round to it, but am now going to bite the bullet and work out how to do it- any eBay selling tips would be greatly received as I am basically, a dunce!

So before I whip them on the world wide market place (oh la la), I thought I would give you one last chance to snap them up, just in time for the party season. I originally had them on for £60 (rrp of £80 brand new, with tags) but I will be putting them on eBay for a start off price of £45. Soooo for you dear Bloggerinos, they are £45 and this INCLUDES p&p for the UK. It would be £5 p&p elsewhere but I will send recorded delivery so it's super safe for you :)

Let me know chummies!

How to be a Body Shop at Home Consultant

Aloha Bloggerinos,

I've had a few questions about how being a Body Shop at Home Consultant (bsahc for ease!) works, so I thought I would do a post and explain it all.

It works a little bit like Avon, but so far I have found it to be rather a lot easier. At first when the lady told me it wasn't nearly as hard work as Avon I was sceptical but I have for sure changed my little mind!

What do I get?

For an initial start up of £40 you are given a huuggee stack of lovely glossy catalogues, a book of order forms (they make me feel tres profesh haha), a stash of leaflets and invites annnddd a great big bag of full Size Body Shop products! My bag is the "pamper kit" but hopefully soon I will be ordering the "makeup kit" so that I can do makeovers. I only paid £40 for my pamper kit but it's retail price is actually £190 so I feel very lucky. I also have a login code and password to the BSaHC website so that I can easily process orders (and it is easy, even for someone like me who struggles with the likes of Twitter hahaha), read the Inspiration section, learn about rewards and incentives and access my statement type jobby where I can see how much mula I've made!

You can imagine that when I have all these out on the hostess's coffee table or whatnot, with lids off and tops open, it looks really impressive and smells heavenly.

So what do I do?

To make money, you make sales. That's the jib of the nub. You can do this a number of ways. You could show your glossy catalogues to friends, family, neighbours etc and ask if they would like anything. I showed mine to my Auntie and she happily ordered about £30 worth of products. You can pop the catalogues through people's doors a la Avon and collect and hope for some orders. I haven't done this as it's cold and this seems a bit laborious for my lazy liking! Oorrrr, the easiest and most enjoyable way, is to have Pamper Parties! So far I have done 2 and they are a hoot! My friend's Mum, Dawn, hosted one at her house for some of her friends and the sales total was very good. I'll explain the numbers later. My friend Nicky also had one on Friday night and it felt more like sitting about with the girls (and I only knew Nicky!) than 'working'.

What happens at a party?

To book a party, the lady (or man I suppose but I can't really see that happening) picks the date she would like and you see if you can make it. So far, all of my bookings have been in the evening for a 7.30pm start but as I don't work in an office anymore, I could do day times too.

For both the parties I have done so far, I turned up about 10 minutes early to set up. Set up is just whipping your lovely products out and taking the lids off so the smell emmits all through the room and gets people excited. For your first party, your Body Shop team leader lady will come with you. Mine is Kelly and for my first party, she basically did it all and I just watched. I reeaallyy appreciated that because I was quite nervous and she showed me a good structure for the partay and a few tips etc. If you were to join, your leader would no doubt do the same.

So to kick off, all the guests have a catalogue and order form and you basically just show them what pamper products you have, pass them round so people can smell and feel and try them out, talk a little bit about the products (all the info is in the catalogue if you are unsure) and that is literally it! You can also talk about some of the products that you don't have, I like to focus on the cosmetics, for obvious reasons and play a few games to get the atmosphere really cheery (you will be told about games so don't panic, you don't have to invent them yourself!). Then I give the guests about 10-15 mins to flick through and write any orders down and make myself available for any queries. Then I just mingle about and take the order forms and ask if they would like to host their own party. At Friday night's party, there were only 6 people there but 3 asked to have their own party! Woop woop! I like booking parties like that because I feel like I know them and am relaxed around them.

The whole thing lasts about 2 hours, unless you're friends with the host like I was, so I stayed for drinks and nibbles afterwards :)

How much money do I make?

This is the best bit! The mula! Basically, for every sale I make, I take 25% commission. This is brilliant!! I can't recall how much I took with Avon but it wasn't 25% that's for sure! So, if at a party, your total sales were £200 (very do-able) then you would have made £50. Not bad for 2 hours 'work' sitting about smelling moisturisers and scrubs eh?! I can't wait to get my makeup kit because then I can do makeovers and really get some sales in! Yippee!

As you can imagine, from only 2 parties and an auntie sale, I have already made back my initial outlay and a bit of fun money to boot!

If the host has party sales of £150, she is entitled to £25 worth of products for free, which she can choose herself from the catalogue, so not a set group of stuff she might not like. As the party sales increase, so does her free spend- another reason to book a party!

How do I feel?

I was really unsure about the whole shibang before I started because I don't like to be pushy and I'm not very good with sales but I have found that because everyone knows the Body Shop, it just sells itself and people trust the brand. Super! There are also offers and deals in the catalogue that you can't get in store or online so that is a big bonus for customers too!

I'm glad I started at this time of year because people are doing their Christmas shopping and are all in the festive party mood!

So what do you think? If you think you would like to try it and live in the UK (sorry everyone else), drop me an email at or comment with your email address and I can give you some proper info about it all and you can make lots of mula yourself just in time for Christmas! Woop woop!

Any questions, let me know Bloggerinos :)

This week I'm in love with....

Aloha Bloggerinos,

Howdy doody? I wrote this this morning but am only just getting the chance to post it so do excuse me ;)

I'm in a really good mood today because 1. It's Saturday and sunny and 2. Matt and I are going to IKEA to buy baby-in-my-tum a cot and change table etc- yippee!!

I thought I would share my good mood with you and tell you what I have loved (and maybe loathed) this week. I don't think this will be a regular feature but who knows? Who dares to bloomin' dream eh?!

Love love loved:

1. I know I'm still banging this drum but my new Eyeko Mascara. I've made a youtube video on it (HERE) so I will just summarise- Squeezey tube and slim line spiral brush left me with low expectations. Applied two coats and felt like I had thick, lustrous false lashes on, could. not. believe. it! The wand curls, yes curls, separates and thickens and have had a billion comments on my lashes. By far my favourite mascara of all time. Will I be re-purchasing? You bloomin' bet I will! It's an affordable £8 from the Eyeko website which you can find HERE. If you would like to buy anything, feel free to use my Ambassador code E11341 to claim a free gift-who doesn't love a freebie? Oh yes, free postage and packaging too. 10/10.


2. Being a Body Shop at Home Consultant. I was really apprehensive about doing Body Shop Pamper Parties as I thought nobody would want to buy anything and I would look like a tit but I couldn't have been further from the truth! I've done 2 parties now, everyone had a great time and were really happy to try products and make orders annndd I've had 4 more bookings from guests at the parties! Each hostess gets to choose £25 worth of free products from the catalogue so I think that really helps! ha! Nice way to socialise, talk to people about things I love and also make some mula- woop! I will be doing a proper post on this soon because it's all very interesting indeed.


3. My latest MAC goodies. A very lovely MAC lady took pity on me not being able to attend the MAC Venomous Villains event a few weeks back and kindly sent me some products and a very swanky press pack through the post. Reviews to come soon but so far, so good.  :)


4. My Beauty Blogsale doing well. I am trying to make a bit of space in my room and also make some pennies for Christmas so I have enjoyed topping up my paypal account and sending you goodies. There are still some bits left so do have a look HERE.

5. My bump! I have a definite pronounced bump now that I am 18 weeks pregnant and I love it. I find myself stroking it and sending it loves. My gorgeous niece Sophie has drawn a very accurate account of the current situation. Matt may get clothes and wonky shoes, but he doesn't get a sexy green quiff now does he?!


Loathe loathy piddly pants:

1. The weird man at my interview on Tuesday who spent 20 minutes talking to me about 16th Century conveyancing. The job was for admin. No conveyancing in sight. Weirdo.

2. Having expectations of people that don't come to light. Should I lower my expectations or keep my (normal I might add!) standards?

3. Having to put the heating on. Bbrrrrr it's cold but gee wizz energy companies charge sooooooo much!! haha!

No pics for this section, who wants pics of things they hate?!

What do you think Bloggerinos?
