So, I was recently browsing around H&M, and noticed they came out with a make-up line, complete with eyeshadows, brushes, and false eyelashes, among others. I am normally skeptical when clothing stores come out with make-up lines, as they are usually cheap and don’t work too well, but I wanted to get some false eyelashes and thought I’d try ’em out. I was so pleasantly surprised with the quality of the lashes– they adhered perfectly (I never use the glue that comes with the pack, however- I am an loyal fan of Ardell Lash Grip Eyelash Glue), but the eyelashes went on easy and stayed the entire night. As a bonus, I’ve been able to reuse them twice, and they are still in amazing shape to wear again– well worth the $5.95.

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to visit some awesome pop-up shops in Manhattan, most notably Refinery 29’s “Tinseltown Bazaar” in SoHo, the Chelsea Market’s Holiday Pop-Up, and, of course, Nylon’s Pop-Up in the Meatpacking District. Refinery 29 had an adorable DIY booth and lots of lovely christmas gifts and samples (and I even ended up walking away with a pretty sweet temporary tattoo!), while the Chelsea Market had everything from Fred Flare’s quirky trinkets to fancy accessories for your pet to mini-Christmas trees and plants. Today is the last day of the pop-up, but if you’re in the NYC area, I’d definitely recommend checking it out! In case you can’t make it, I snapped a few photos from Nylon’s Pop-Up shop and you can check ’em out for yourself below.
