Love the colours, but they're a bit large
I was lucky enough to receive these in my Beautyheaven 10th birthday goody bag last October. Whilst I own a few Lady Jayne hair accessories (namely the metallic ponytail cuffs & bows), I forget to use them & tbh I would never have thought to buy these for myself, so they were a nice addition.
With each pack you get 3 pairs of bobby pins in gold, silver & rose gold. They feel pretty comfortable to wear in the hair thanks to the rubber end & I haven't felt them digging into my head at all.
So far I've used one of the gold ones in my fine-but-lots-of-it type 2 straight hair to hold a couple of hair twists together at the back of my head & I was pretty impressed with how well they held my twists together. My hair has a tendency to be quite soft & I often have issues with styles falling out when I use normal bobby pins; but not once did my twists feel like they were going to come out. I'd like to see how well they hold my hair together whilst I'm out shopping & trying things on as that for me will be a true test of their effectiveness. Ditto for wearing these on a windy day.
My 1 criticism is that these are a little hard to open at the tip, plus they are on the longer side & therefore might not hold your hair in well. If they made these in a smaller size I think that would be optimal. Sadly, like my other hair accessories, I think these might just sit around gathering dust.

Just a big too large
I received these bobby pins within my BeautyHeavens 10th's Birthday goodie bag and I am glad that I received it because these are the type of bobby pins that I would not personally purchase myself. The bobby pin itself is very long to your typical sized bobby pins, and its opening tip was very awkward to seperate when I tried to clip my hair. Overall I have pretty thin hair so it is great for me to clip up my fringe but I found that it does slip down over time. However, I love the colours that comes with it!

Love the colours
I was very fortunate to receive the Lady Jayne large metallic slides in my BeautyHeaven 10th birthday goody bag, they are not something I would every buy for myself so I was keen to try.
The slides are very long, about the length of my index finger, and come in three pairs gold, silver and rose gold. The end has a clear rubber grip on the end which means it’s not painful at all.
I have thick medium to long length hair. I pulled the top part of my hair up and put one slide in. After about 20 minutes my hair had slid out on one side so I redid my hair with 2 slides. They are strong enough to hold my hair up when used together.
I personally would like the slides to be about half the size so that you can pull up and restrain hair on both sides of your head instead of in half up half down style.
