These space-age sparklers look heavy, but are light as a feather and are strangely subtle - until you flutter those baby blues and everyone within eyeshot gets a flash of silver.

Accessorise with full-on make-up and plenty of attitude. Doesn't include glue.
Prize eyes ? ? ? ? Limited edition in black feature, La La Lashes (www.lalalashes.co.uk), 9.95. My, oh my. With the exception of a Disney Cow heroine, you've never seen lashes like these. Coming in at 4cm long, they give the appearance of waiting for a Priscilla audition, but you make a statement (and a half). For lashes quite so big, they were astonishingly easy to apply and the supplied adhesive meant they stayed put - through an awful lot of batting.
