Today has been so hectic, but I managed to get a real Christmas tree, in a pot and it’s five foot tall. Winner. I was really happy with today’s offering, a gorgeous pair of blue tweezers from the vintage cosmetics company. I’ve tried a set of eyelash curlers from them previously, and although I don’t use them often any more due to a bad experience they are great.
The bad experience was around 3 years ago, my home football team (Ross County FC) somehow made it to the Scottish Cup Final and I was going to see them play at Hampden. Casually curling my eyelashes with my trusty FCUK curlers, which were amazing, as they were tiny and were great for doing the corners of the eyelashes, when to my dismay they shattered. Yes people, the eyelash curlers snapped into about a gazillion pieces. Okay, it was around 8 pieces, one of which decided to lodge itself nicely in my eye. Being a hardened Scot, I soldiered on and went to the football, only for County to loose. To add insult to injury, I dropped by uni to ask my boyfriend to acompany me to A and E as it’s really not a place for the faint hearted on a Saturday night in Glasgow (and true enough, there was several bloodied men from a bar brawl) and his mates started referring to me as pirate eye Grey. Eventually after about 4 hours I was taken and some lovely yellow stuff squirted in my eye, beautifully staining the skin. Excellent. I then got some crazy ointment to put on my eye for the next week to reduce pain/swelling/heal the scratch. Not really sure, I’m not a nurse and it’s all a bit hazy. Anyway, the moral of this story, is never use plastic eyelash curlers. The vintage cosmetic company ones are metal, but I still don’t trust them.
I tried these tweezers out earlier and they are definitely as good as my tweezerman, although I prefer the leopard print pattern on those. These will be relegated to my going away/spare bag for when I loose my tweezerman, which believe me is a frequent occurrence, only for them to reappear days later in my sock drawer/under the bed/on the downstairs toilet cistern. I swear those tweezers walk.
