If you've seen my recent couple of posts (Aa Ball 2010 - Night of Luminance and Bold black and silver eyes), you probably would have noticed I was wearing false lashes. This was the first time I bought false lashes and the ball was the first occasion which I wore false lashes to. I have helped others to apply false lashes in the past...but never on myself before...I know...weird...lol
Anyway, since this was my first time, I decided to go with cheaper lashes so I could practice and if I screwed up I wouldn't be wasting like another $15 on good lashes.
I bought a box of 10 pairs from the oooushop on ebay. They were extremely cheap, I believe they were on special when I got them and they cost me only $2.35AUD including shipping (from Hong Kong to Australia). To see the exact pairs I got click here. The shipping was pretty fast, they arrived within a week from when my payment was confirmed and I had no issues with their service at all, however they could have had more secure packaging. They sent the box of lashes in an envelope but when they arrived the envelope was not securely glued down and was semi open. Plus the box was a bit squashed on one side.
These are not made of real hair so they can look plastic-y. They have thick bands that aren't very flexible so can be pokey and uncomfortable to wear.
Overall these lashes do add a lot of length and volume. They looked 'relatively' natural against my heavy eye-makeup. But without heavy eye-makeup, they would definitely look over the top and fake.
I probably won't be using these again. They served me well on the night, but they were just a bit too uncomfortable especially now that I have used other brands.
