Front Cover Lashes of Lashes False Eyelashes
Advantages: lovely lashes, nice packaging
Disadvantages: should of had a bigger glue
I have to admit to being in love with false eyelashes. I love how they can make your eyes appear bigger and more defined. I have quite naturally short eyelashes and small eyes, falsies make them look bigger and give an effect you could never get with mascara.
I never normally wear them during the day, more for nights out only but with this pack I found that they weren't too dramatic for the day time. I do buy eyelashes from eBay as you can get big packs for little money, but I got this Front Cover pack for my birthday earlier last year and I love them! I find them to be so much better than the cheapys I'm used to.
In this gift set, you get everything you will need to apply and glamour up your lashes. I quite liked that the two pairs of eyelashes included can be worn subtle or bold. I prefer to keep one pair for day and one for night. Both eyelashes are black so they look mascara covered and not natural like others you could get.
The subtle lashes are similar length across the strip and can be cut down (from the outer edge) to fit your eye. The lashes are apart and not too thick so they look natural, they are also not too long which is obviously to give more of a natural look. I like how they glammed my eyes up without making me look caked in make-up. These are my day time work lashes when I can't be bothered to apply make-up.
The other eyelashes are all facing more towards the outer edge and get longer the further across they get. They are thick and very black so they stand out. I find these to elonguate your eye. I think this pair is more suited towards night time clubbing or a meal with friends. I wouldn't recommend them for day use unless you like bolder eyes in the day time. You hardly need to apply any eyeliner because the edge that touches your lid is black and gives the appearance of eyeliner. I couldn't really feel them on my eyes which I liked because sometimes I find other pairs itch but this could be because of the glue I use rather than the eyelashes.
The lashes come in a cosmetic bag which is covered in pictures of eyes glammed up. It has a zip along the top and the eyelashes inside are in individual boxes like you would get when on the shelf alone. The box with the lashes in has a box at the bottom and the front of the box is longer so it can be put on the hanger and hold information. The box is purple and has a clear window to see your lashes. The lashes are stuck to sticky paper in each corner so they remain in place and look presentable but aren't too hard to peel off when you want to use them. I like that the ingredients and how to use the lashes is on the back because if you need any information then its all there ready for you. I have to admit, I have only really scanned over this information due to being a qualified beautician so I am pretty aware of it all (A year I thought I wasted at college but apparently it helped somewhere along the lines). I keep the packaging to put the eyelashes back into when I am not wearing them, or they will just be squished somewhere.
The glue is average and comes in the tiny tube you get with individual eyelash boxes. You get two tubes (which I thought was silly, they should have provided a big tube considering its a gift set) .The glue tacks up quite quickly and dries clear on your eyelid so you don't need to worry about it being visible and it definitely won't slip all around your lid. When it comes to staying power I found that they didn't budge the whole time I had them on! The inner corner of one eye did start to come up but I got poked in the eye and that could of been the reason - thank you to my slightly merry friend for that! The glue can be easily loosened by applying a wet flannel for a couple of seconds or the same process with a make-up wipe. This won't ruin the lashes at all it just helps to loosen the glue. Whatever you do - don't pull the eyelashes off because I can garuntee it will pull half your own eyelashes out and hurt in the process, is it worth it?
I would advise you to use tweezers to apply the lashes and leave the glue to become tacky for about 10-20 seconds before trying to glue them on. Using your fingers and immediately putting the eyelashes on is a big mistake as it means they won't stick properly and can't be properly held in the right place. If it doesn't go right don't panic because they aren't the easiest things to apply and take time to work out how to do it properly.
Avoid putting mascara onto the false eyelashes because it makes them look tacky and they won't look nice the next time you apply them. Apply mascara and curl your own eyelashes before glueing the lashes on to give the nicest look - especially if you have naturally light lashes.
When it comes to pricing I am not sure, I did see them in Boots this year and they were around £7 for the set, but the set is different now and includes a tube of mascara too which I didn't get with mine unfortunately.
Summary: lovely present idea
