Red Cherry Lashes Haul

I know my last few posts have been very picture heavy...but here's another one lol.

Lately my best friend and I have been going to a fair few events and special occasions, and of course they go hand in hand with false lashes lol. So we ordered a bunch of Red Cherry lashes off Ebay. This was my first time trying this brand and I'm pretty impressed with the quality and the cheap price.

I ordered 5 pairs: #1, #82, #107, #118 and #510. Some of them were a bit of a miss for me but I'll go through in detail below.

#82
I was annoyed when I received these as you can see from first picture, my pair were faulty as a few of the lashes had been cut short, but luckily it's not very noticeable on. Anyway, I really like this pair. They are very fluttery and full. They are an even length the whole way across, just slightly shorter in the inner corner. They add great volume and length. But they can make your eye look a little heavy due to the evenness of the lashes the whole way across so be wary if you have smaller eyes.

#1
This pair is probably my favourite of the 5, a little ahead of the #82. It's a little more natural looking than the #82 since it's more sparse at the ends as opposed to being full from root to tip. These add plenty of volume since they're really full at the roots, and also make your eyes look more open as the longer/spikey lashes draw a line outwards.

Let me just preface the next 3 pairs with I'm not a huge fan of them because they are farrr too long for me. I do really like them in terms of their cut and shape. They all look very similar, kind of like super long versions of the #82. I probably won't wear any of them unless I trim them down.

#510
These are the shortest out of #510, #107 and #118. These might work for me...but that would be the absolute maximum length I would go. These would work better if you have larger eyes/longer lashes.

#107
These are a bit longer than the #510.

#118
These are the longest pair I bought. They really are crazy long. I would not be able to pull these off, they would be too disproportionate with my face lol. You can see just how long they are compared to #82 and #82 have very decent length. Note the #118 curls up a lot more too so they are even longer than what they appear in the photo below.

So a bit of a mixed bag, but that's what comes with ordering online. My best friend and I ordered 10 pairs between us and it came to about $2.60 a pair (including shipping), which is fantastic. If you wanted to buy a pair of similar quality here in stores, you would be looking at spending $10-15. I highly recommend #1 and #82.

Hope you're all having a great day.

  1. Completely agree with you on the #118, it's a bit too long and unnatural! The same happened with me when I hauled some eyelashes on Sasa recently... they were very disappointing! :( I do like #1 and #82 though. Do you mind sharing the link for the lashes on eBay? I may consider getting some for myself... hehehe! Thanks lovely :)
