Think I'll miss giving my face a good wash over the next 2 weeks, but hopefully it'll be worth it. They are a bit dark at the mo and thicker than I'd normally do them with make up so I'm looking forward to the pigment fade bit as I feel they are a bit obvious at the moment! I'm also intrigued by the dropping off comment!
