I bought these lashes to take on holiday with me so i could go to the beach without having to worry about my mascara melting and looking like a panda.
They are rather hard to put on as you need a steady hand and a lot of patience, the first time i used them i had a friend put them one who had used them before as i could not put them on straight, but when i returned from holiday and replaced them i done them myself and it gets easier every time you use them, and now i use them all the time.
The glue is very strong and they lasted all week, occasionally one or two fell off but i think it was down to the fact i did not stick them on with enough glue. The different lengths in the box make the eye lashes look very natural as you can pick the lengths you want where on your eye.
These eyelashes also come with eyelash remover due to the glue being so strong. This remover is also very strong and can sting a bit if you get it in your eye, so be careful.
They are very compatible with makeup, if i am going out somewhere special i will run mascara through them and add a bit of eyeliner to give it a glamorous edge. These eyelashes can be reused if you look after them.
Overall i would say these are the best eyelashes i have ever bought, they really a perfect, would recommend them to everyone
A short while ago, I was getting sick to death of putting mascara on everyday, and I have quite short, light lashes in comparison to black hair (coloured black) so I wanted something a bit more long term.
Whilst in a Sally's store picking up some hair supplies, I noticed the Eyelure Individual Lashes, and thought that these would be just the ticket for what I wanted. I bought a box, and some eyelash glue (it does not come supplied!!) and took them home.
The Individual Lashes are basically what they say, a box of individual eyelashes, which you glue along the line of your own lashes to add to and enhance what you already have. Think of it like a boob job for your eyelashes!
The Individual Lashes come set into a plastic tray, and each one is set far enough away from each other to ensure they do not get stuck together when you remove one from the tray.
I found the best way to handle the Individual Lashes is with a pair of tweezers, as they are too small to handle with just your fingers. This also helps in the precision of placing the Individual Lashes onto your own lashes.
The glue can be a tricky situation, I ended up using a discarded plastic lid, and placing a small blob of the glue on to the lid. Then when I had picked up a lash with my tweezers, I gently swiped the end of the lash over the glue. I found that this got the perfect amount of glue required onto the Individual Lash, and it saved me getting glue every where, I never was the tidest of people!
You do need some time and patience for putting the lashes onto your eyelids, and it really did take some practice for me to get them right. Once you get past catching them on your eyelashes, glueing them too high up your eyelid or dropping them all over the place, they finally get a bit easier to place.
Once I got the Individual Lashes onto my eye, I was really pleased with how they looked. I put about 15 - 20 Individual Lashes on each eye, and I looked like I had long, thick black lashes, but without looking fake. It was like I was wearing a good mascara! I was actually quite amazed with the look, as it was exactly what I was hoping for.
The lashes I bought were medium in length and ultra black in colour. They also come in short and long, and in black and brown. They can also be bought in a pack of all 3 lengths, so you can create a more natural look. My lashes lasted about 2 weeks, although Eyelure say that the results can last up to 4. Luckily you do not need a whole packet in one go, so if you lose the occasional lash, you can just pop another one on.
As I said before, I bought my Individual Lashes in a Sallys store, but they are also available in larger Boots and Superdrug stores. You can also buy them on Amazon, and depending on where you buy them you should expect to pay around £5 - £7 a box and around £2 for the glue.
I recommend Eyelure Individual Lashes 100%. They are really great at the job they are intended for, and I would happily wear them again.
Damn, those annoying little items that are known to cut eyelashes to less than a mm, those things that kill you if you ever trap your skin in them, yes, I am talking about eyelash curlers!
I am, well was, lucky enough to have naturally long, dark, thick lashes, but due to this horrid item called 'eyelash curlers' they all got cut off, nothing to do with me just having applied mascara and pressing too hard, of course!
Due to me loving having long lashes, I decided that I HAD to invest in some false eyelashes.
Now, I was looking around at some of them, however seeing the big, thick, black spider leg looking things I grew a little scared and wanting to be able to hold my eyelids open and didn't want to look like I was wearing my Halloween costume for the next couple of weeks. So the idea of false eyelashes went out of the window and I was back with my mm long, stumpy little eyelashes, that I loved so much!!
Then whilst searching on eBay, I found the eylure individual eyelashes, which looked so much more practical and meant that I could infact look like I am slightly normal and not that I have been punched in the face, or just woken up with the worse hangover ever, as my darling mother describes my current lashes!
I decided to purchase mine from Boots as it meant that I could have them straight away, where they cost around £7.99 and in the pack you receive 17 short, 17 medium and 17 long.
Other retailers include the likes of Superdrug, ASOS, Tesco and others.
When you open it, it is in a white style plastic that holds the lashes in 3 rows of short, medium and large. Despite being called individual lashes they do come in clumps of 4 or 5 lashes together. The lashes do look quite curled and are also quite blackish.
To use you can sort of pluck them out (make sure you grab all of the lashes within the clump) with tweezers. Personally, to me they look like lots of skinny spider legs sewn together at one end, so to look at they aren't all that pleasing to the eye!
I blobbed the glue on one end and decided where I wanted to place on my non-existent eyelashes and let go. Yep, just as expected on my first use I was in an utter mess where my fingers were stuck to the tweezers, the spiders, oh, sorry, I mean eyelashes were stuck to the tweezers and I was in an utter mess.
However, after removing all this I decided to start again and this time it was surprisingly easier. After discovering that I only needed the tiniest of blobs in order to stick the eyelashes onto my lid, rather than the explosion I had used before meant that I no longer had my eyes closed shut, well glue shut. I actually found them easy to apply, I tend to use the shorter ones in the inner corner, working out to the longer ones in the outer corner. I personally feel that this is the most natural look I can achieve, I also just use the one layer, not layer upon layer as some do as I do want them to look as natural as possible.
After this I was pleased with the results and despite the glue drying clear, I was a little startled to see that I had blobs along my eyelid that looked like I had developed conjunctivitis! To avoid, this if you apply a thick or thin line of eyeliner, I find that liquid looks better, this blends in this and it just looks like you have natural looking lashes.
This may sound an easy process, but would say that it does require some practice, especially to be able to angle the lash right.
I was pleased to find that I found them comfortable to wear and that the glue was no longer pulling on my eyelid. I added a little mascara to these lashes as I found that this made them blend in more with the little eyelashes that I had left and also applied it to the bottom.
I found that they stayed in place all day, they did start to feel a little weird, so I thought that I may have one hanging down from my eye, like something from a horror film, but was pleased to stay that stayed in place all day!
I even went to visit my mum with them on and her answer to me on the door stop was 'Bl**dy hell, your eyelashes grow back fast', bless her, anyway I guess this shows that you can pass them off as your own!
I was OVERJOYED to find that they were much easier to remove than to put on! It does recommend that you use a cotton wool pad with a moisturiser or cleanser and simply wipe down, away from the eye.
However, my way was a lot more easier, if a little less ladylike, which was to use pair of tweezers and simply pluck them off, it did pull on the eyelid a little, but hey, it saved time!
The only, perhaps downside is that you are unable to use them again, well I suppose you could if you don't wear mascara on them, but if you do then they become more obvious that they are fake and don't look as good!
Overall I was really pleased with my experience and have continued to use them daily (though this has been a little costly, so I am not looking for some cheaper alternatives!) and for nights our I tend to use the longer ones all over and if they do look like spiders, then I just hope that everyone will be too drunk by that time to see!
I would definitely recommend these, as you don't have to worry about them sliding off and landing in your food or anything like that and once you are used to how they feel they become surprisingly comfortable to wear! I would recommend these to build up your own lashes, if you are lucky enough to have them, or if you have had an incident like me then they are just as good!
These can be used naturally or extravagantly and can easily be hidden and passed off as your own, so if you want something more natural looking compared to the scary looking all in one things that are called 'false lashes' then these are for you.
What is it?
Individual glue on eye lashes by Eylure
Well, my best friend loved these particular lashes, I would watch her put them on with great ease whilst using tweezers. And after she had applied them, they looked great! Full, long but not false looking.
I bought a pack myself hoping to achieve the same, desired look. Although I have long lashes already, these lashes would hopefully make them look fuller too. The idea that I could create different looks with these lashes was great, (as they are of different sizes) .
The Individual lashes came with glue and instructions. I chose the lashes that I wanted to use and proceeded to coat the root of one individual lash with a little glue and let the glue go tacky. Then I tried to apply the individual lash to my own with tweezers. (The same way my friend did).
Unfortunately, I was unable to secure any lashes to my own. I really struggled and I tried so many times! And I have used regular false lashes before with great ease! I would hold the individual lash to my own so that the glue would set, and it didn't seem to set properly. Then on another attempt I tried to wait longer to let the glue dry, but no luck. I had used the whole pack in the end without any lashes fixed on. I was very disheartened!
I think that it is much easier to use regular false lashes, but if you really want to try the individual lashes for yourself then you should practice lots first without using the glue, just to get used to putting them on.
I think these individual lashes are too fiddly and time consuming I'm afraid. I would not buy them again.
Eylure Individual Lashes
Around £5 from Boots/Superdrug. I bought mine at Superdrug as they have an offer at the moment of "Buy 2 Selected Eylure products for £8.50" so saving a bit of money. Also noticed Boots are doing a deal "Buy one Eylure product and get another for half price". However, only noticed this online, does not seem to be in store. Unless there is a bit of a delay with the offers in-store. I do however, only really buy false eyelashes on offer as there is always so many offers flying about.
The packaging is very similar to all Eylure products. Very simple white and purple boxes. There are two types of individual lashes, ones that have sort of bulbed ends and the more natural lashes "Ultra Natural Effect" which do not have any bulbs. The latter is what I chose as I want a more naturally looking eye and they blend into your own eyelashes better. There are three different lenght - short, medium and long on the little white tray. Also comes with an instruction booklet and a glass vial of glue and another larger remover.
To apply you first need to make sure you eylashes are clean and have no trace of make-up or oil as this can interfer with the glue sticking. First of all you need to put a few drops of glue onto some foil. The glue drys up pretty quickly so only put a small part on so you don't waste anyway. To be honest I think the container the glue is in is not very good as its hard for the glue to come out and since its glass you can't squeeze it. To remove the lashes from the tray it suggests to use tweezers but due to the pressure of the tweezers, it can sometimes break or kink the lashes so I just use my fingers and gently pull. Starting with the middle of the eye apply a medium lash, this is so you can frame and base all the other lashes round it. Then work towards th outer eye applying medium and then some long at the ends and the towards the inner eye where the smaller lashes go. I wanted quite a dramatic look so apply mainly medium with about 2 long and 2 short. You should aim to apply between 7-14 lashes per eye but I think this is far too much. I applied about 8-9 per eye and I thought that was a bit much. I may next time apply more shorter ones.
The lashes themselves are quite easy to apply, a bit fidgety at first but you get used to it. I apply them in front of a magnifying mirror with a light so that I can see my own lashes easily so I know where to apply them. The instructions state to apply with tweezers but I think its easier by hand. I take the lash out the container, dip it into the glue and apply careful on my lash line. I then use the other end of my tweezers (the flat end) just to appply a bit of pressure and to make sure they stick. This can be left for a few seconds and its already pretty secure. At first I was really scared they would be difficult but I found them really easy to apply and you can control how you want them to look rather than strip lashes. They also look so natural (well people with naturally long lashes) and love the look so much. You can wear make-up over them as well. I didn't at first as they look good alone but when I was going out but some more mascara for a more dramatic look. As long as you use a water-based mascara (which I think most are) and oil-free make-up remover they stay put. I was quite careful with them but when taking mascara off one night a few fell off as I wasn't being so careful. I just apply a few more in the morning, which literally took 2 seconds and they were back to being long and lushous. They say they last for 4 weeks but to be honest after about a week and a half they look a little took clumpy with all the mascara and just didn't look so good so I decided to remove them. I think if you were very careful and wore no other eye make-up they may last for 4 weeks but other than that I don't think they would last 4 weeks.
To remove the eyelashes you just need to get a cotton bud and dip some of the remover onto it. Soak it into the roots of the fake lashes and sort of stroke them off. I found this process very hard and sore. I must have put too much remover on that it got into my eyes and stung and to top it off the lashes were glued down so tight it was virtually inpossible to get some of them off. Suppose this is good as shows how long they last without coming off, but after a full bottle of the remover and half an hour they were finally off and back to my short lashes. Totally miss them now.
I would definitely recommend this product. I'm going on holiday soon and will definitely be applying them before as I don't tend to wear much make-up due to the heat and these would be perfect. You can get them wet and do everything with them as they are basically extensions. They are made of real hair and suitable for contact lenses wearers like myself. In fact, I wore my contact while applying so I could see what I was doing and they were fine.
These are amazing and I don't know what I would do without them. Definitely worth a try. You may need to practice but the end results are worth it. I wouldn't pay beauty salons for their expensive eyelash extensions. Plus I like the look of these ones more as there are more fluttery instead of the one strand (which is what beauty salons and Eylure Lash Extend are).
I have been using these lashes for many years now! They are hard to get to grips with if you are not used to them but once you have the hang of it, you will love them.
They are generally about £5 per pack from Boots and Superdrug and they often have them on special offer of buy one pack and get the 2nd half price.
I tend to buy these when I want them for a special occasion otherwise I purchase the salon system ones from hairdressing supplies because I don't use the small size, only the large and medium ones. It is cheaper in the long run to purchase a pack of long and a pack of medium separately.
The eyelure ones are perfect for beginners who would like the effect of false lashes only without the black visible strip left when you apply falsies.
A tip for those of you purchasing these lashes is that I recommend that you spend the few extra pennies and get the ones that say "bulb free" on them. Eyelure do different types but the packaging all looks the same. You have to read the front.
The lashes themselves comprise of a small selection of synthetic fibres and they are held together to form a flare shape by a tiny dot of glue also known as a "Bulb" when you apply them you use tweezers to dip the bulb in glue and then attach them to your own lashes. I prefer the "Bulb free" one which is held together with a dinky piece of binding which is very hard to see. It means you don't get the blobby black effect and instead you get a beautiful line of natural looking lashes.
The lashes come in Black and brown. If you want a dramatic mascara false lash effect then black is best, if you want a more natural effect then brown is better.
You get a vial of glue in each pack along with glue remover. The glue is actually oil based and the remover is simply modified oil. It stings like hell if you get it in your eye so be careful. Because the glue is removed using an oil product you should be very careful using anything with oil in it around the eye area. This will degrade the glue and the lashes will not last very long. This also applies to mascara. If you want to add an even more dramatic effect you should purchase an oil free mascara. Also you should avoid water on the lashes for 24 hours really so be careful when washing etc. When you sleep it is best to try and stay on your back and not sleep with your eyes pressed against your pillow as this will result in twisting lashes.
They say that the lashes can last up to 4 weeks, however you will need to replenish lost and damaged lashes as they come out. Your natural lashes fall out in a cycle from anything between 4-6 week so you will always lose some as they don't grown at the same speed and time. If looked after properly you can probably get away with a full week before you need maintenance.
The box is not very clear with the instructions. When I first used them I tried to attach them too far against my eye lid and I could feel them when I moved my eye around. I have had professional lash extensions and all sorts on my lashes and I picked up a few tips whilst there that helped with application and removal of the flare sets from Eyelure.
1) Always wipe your eye with a toner or grease remover before applying the lashes.
2) Sit very close to a tilting mirror that you can look down upon with a light shining towards you; this gives you the best view.
3) Use pointed tweezers with a thin end rather than slanted or wide ended tweezers; this gives you a better range of movement.
4) Always keep the glue on foil near the light to keep it warm and stop it drying out too quickly.
5) Apply 2 or 3 lashes to each outer corner of each eye before you begin and work with both eyes at the same time applying one on the left then one on the right working from the outer corners inwards. I do this so that I don't get one eye with many more on than the other one.
6) When you apply the lash, hold it tight in the tweezer and run it along your own lashes first to leave a film of glue along the whole natural lash. This will give a larger surface area of glue and help to make your lashes last much longer and also stay in place better without so much twisting.
7) Use nail scissors to trim the ends when using different sizes so that the line integrates rather than steps.
8) You can purchase black glue rather than clear glue from Boots and Superdrug. It's made of the same stuff but you won't get the clear / white dried glue in areas that you were a little more heavy handed.
9) Always ensure that you keep the glue dry for 24 hours.
10) Avoid oil based moisturisers and face creams around the eye area. Simple are a good brand and oil free.
1) Never pull the lashes off without glue remover! This will pull out your natural lash
2) the best way to apply the remover is to take a cotton bud and gently brush the remover from underneath your lashes while your eye is open. Just like applying mascara.
3) Be patient, you should be able to pull them off after a minute or so and should feel no resistance, if you can't then apply a little more remover.
4) Applying remover from the top of the lashes with the eye closed restricts your vision and has always ended up in my eye and it really stings!!
That's about it really. I hope this has been useful. Happy fluttering!!! ;o)
As its my birthday month I'm going out on the Friday, so when I was in town shopping this weekend I decided to go for some false eyelashes.
Although my eyelashes are quite thin I never really use false eyelashes, in fact the last time I used them was this time last year. I have never tried individual lashes before, and after this experience don't think I ever will again.
Since I had a day at home today I decided to have a go at putting some of these eyelashes on.
I bought these Eylure Individual Lashes from Claires Accessories, for £5. You can also get them from Superdrug, where they are £4.95.
In the box they come in they are quite well presented. You can see what the box looks like in the picture, and how the lashes are presented in three rows, at the top are the shortest lashes and at the bottom are the longest.
Inside the pack you also get some adhesive for putting them on with, and some remover for when you want to take them off. Also you get an instruction leaflet telling you how to apply them.
To apply the lashes you need as well as this pack, a pair of tweezers and some silver foil which is not supplied in the pack. Some might think this is inconvinient, as it does not say on the outside box you will need silver foil so if you bought some then went home to find you had no silver foil, you would either have to wait for another time before applying the lashes, or you would have to go back out to the shops.
I don't think the quality of the lashes is very good. When I tried to apply them they were bending in all directions and looked quite messy on my lids. I wasn't too happy with the glue either. There was hardly any of it and it kept drying up really quickly. Also, once the lashes were on the eye you could tell they were fake and I just wasn't too pleased with the look.
Maybe its my eyelash - applying skills, but the effect was that I had messy eyelids and fingers covered in glue. I seemed to use a lot of glue, but still when I blinked or touched my eyelids they would fall off. There is too little glue and it just isn't sticky enough.
I hoped I could make the eyelashes look more even and real by blending with mascara - but there's no chance of that as when I try to they just fall out.
The instructions weren't too helpful either. They take up about five lines and there weren't any extra tips about how to acheive the best eyelash look.
I think if I had someone doing these for me, then maybe I could have achieved a more natural look. But the glue still wouldn't have been sticky enough, and I think it would have still run out before I had barely even started applying.
Practice perhaps makes almost - perfect, but I neither have the patience or time to bother with trying again.
I wouldn't recommend these and next time I feel like false eyelashes I will use the full ones - and definitely not from this brand, I feel like I have been ripped off for wasting a fiver on basically rubbish.

I have quite weedy looking lashes, and to get any sort of wow effect I either have to use loads of mascara or fake eyelashes. I've tried several brands of false eyelashes, including pre glued ones, but I hate them looking too fake, if you get what I mean. I like to have great looking lashes but not overly done.
I thought that these individual lashes might look more natural, and as they have different lengths in the pack it would follow my natural lash 'pattern' and look as if I just had naturally long eyelashes.
I bought these in Boots, if I remember correctly, and I think they were round the £4 mark, although I can't remember exactly. However, I thought that they would be good value for money and if they didn't work it wasn't a fortune I'd wasted.
I got them home and decided to do them for going out on a night out. I wanted to give myself plenty of time and made a start in the afternoon. The lashes come with glue, and you're meant to use tweezers to pick each one up, dip it in glue, and attach to your lash line.
To be honest, I had thought I was adept at putting on false lashes, but these completely defeated me! The are truly the most fiddly things invented. If you manage to pick them up and get glue on them, getting them to actually stick is a nightmare, plus they don't all want to stick in the same direction. Plus getting both eyes to look the same, length lash and volume wish was nigh on impossible.
Thinking it was a two person job, I asked my boyfriend to help. He's helped me do girly things before, such as highlights in my hair, and fake tan, so he's not unskilled in fiddly jobs. He fared no better than I did and in the end I had to give them up as a bad job.
I was worried about how to remove them, as I couldn't go out with all my 'eyelashes' pointing in opposite directions, but when I rubbed my eyes in frustration all the lashes came out, so it shows how well the glue was holding!
All in all, probably not the best buy.
What a struggle!
Goodness me, I bought these ready for a big party and they caused more hassle than joy! I really love using fake eyelashes and though this would be a more suble yet dramatic effect without looking fake and it might have been if I had managed to actually attach them to my eyes!
I really struggle to get them to all stick in the same directions, to make sure they all did stick it was a night mare. I am an absolute wizz at applying normal fake eyelashes to myself and friends but theseare so tricky and delicate it was awful and really did wind me up before the party.
I thought maybe it is something that you need 2 people for and I have had someone else try and put them on me and I have tried to put them on someone else but it really hasn' worked.
I wold recommend people stick to fake eyelashes and save themselves the hassle!
I love the way falsh lashes look but I like them when they look natural - if you know what I mean! So when I came across these on the Superdrug website I thought what a great idea they were!
Many of my friends have had the individual lashes done professionally which set them back a pretty penny! I just could not afford £70 for something that needs topping up every few weeks.
I paid £5.95 for theEylure Individual Lashes last Christmas but many sellers on ebay and Amazon are offering them at less than half this price.
The packaging has a see-through window which shows the lashes you are getting - I got the packet that offered a variety of the short, medium and long ones in black. You can also purchase these in all the same length and in pastel colours?! You are also given lash adhesive and remover. On the back of the packing is a four step diagram of how to apply the individual lashes and also a before and after shot of how they will look. The lashes are supplied on a white tray that you can remove easily with tweezers. There are 30 of each of the lash extensions and each one has at least 3 lashes on them. So for 90 extensions and the ablity to re-use them again they seem very good value for money.
Applying the lashes
All you will need to apply the lashes:
Once you have the lashes with your tweezers dip the end into the adhesive, leave for a couple of seconds and then stick to where you want them - the longer lashes to the outside of the eye and the smaller to the inside. This is where it gets a little tricky! Trying to manouver the lashes is incredibly difficult and once you have them in place the adhesive is no longer sticky enough to bond them to your lashes which means starting all over again!
Lets just put it this way, I have never been able to wear these lashes out as they are not easy to apply at all and is difficult to achieve the look that you want.
The packaging states that these will stay on up to four weeks, I have not been able to keep them on for 24 hours! I do not see the need for the lash remover as they fall out on their own.
I am very dissappointed in this product. I thought that they would be easy to apply but they are fiddly and end up pointing in the wrong direction. The look that these lashes achieve in my opinion are nowhere near as good as a semi-decent falsh lash effect mascara which will save you a lot of time and bother.
A big thumbs down from me I'm afraid.
Now, i have to admit, that like a fool, i read the mainly bad reviews of this product, then I went out and bought it. More fool me!
Ever optimistic, i believe that the people who said this was a load of fiddly rubbbish were perhaps somewhat cock-handed. I can do much better i thought!
They looked great in the shops really natural. So i got em home eager to try them. i placed them on my lashes just to check the fit and they quite genuinely looked great. i couldnt tell where my real lashes were. Then the problem started...
There is a major design fault with these, and that is that you cant stick them to the eyelids like normal falsies, but the glue you do not want to get near your eye. So you push down onto the lashes, which in turn press in, then 1mm from your eyeball you have glue. This ain't no normal glue either. The falsies i have, have some latex rubbery glue that you can see- this glue is a thin transparent liquid- you have no idea whats going on.
I agree with another reviewer about the glue pot itself? who designed this product? somebody with 5 hands? you have to wrench the stopper out of the tiny glass bottle, filled to the brim with watery glue (for the sake of illustration it really is like water) then quickly do the whole tweezer application thing with this bottle of water looking like it's fit to tip over.
When you finally get one lash on, i was put in mind of another reviewer who said they kept falling off into the sink. Ditto. it takes aaagges to get one damn thing to stick on- when you do, you end up hot and frustrated.
I would not like to be doing this before a big night out. The things don't even pull off afterwards like a strip- you tend to lose them. they just fall out.
If i was going out, i wouldnt fancy talking to some hot guy with these on- youd be paranoid theyd end up falling down your face like some kind of seedy tash.
If you use normal lash glue, they are ok, but because theyre so thin and spindly and the base of them is literally 1mm, you end up thinking theyre gonna just fall out- its not like the security of glue on a strip.
Before you buy these, id ask how badly you want them. I have black lashes anyway, i'd rather have less volume and length that go out with this carry on knocking my confidence and frustrating me, or possibly with my eyes glued together. No thanks...
I first tried these when my friend (who was really struggling) asked me to have a go as im usually quite good with things like this! I just found these really fiddly and my patience (which usually is quite good) was quickly running low! As soon i got one on a thought yes i went to put the next on and the first one would fall off and so on! After lots of attemps i called it a day! Although i have seen them once done proffesionally they look really effective but for me and friends i have spoke to about these, most have had the same trouble!
They come in a plastic holder with 17 short (for inner lashes), 17 medium(for middle) and 17 long lashes(for outer). They come with a tiny bottle of eyelash remover and adhesive.
They are supposed to last for up to 4weeks (if you can get them on) and are suitable for contact lense wearers.
You can buy them from most supermarkets, chemists and places like boots and superdrug costing around £4.95, although prices may vary depending on where purchased.
Overall i would leave individual eye lashes for the pros and stick to the strips, although they do look effective if your successful when applying them.
**** Introduction ****
After recently going to a wedding I decided to have my eye lashes extended, so off to the beauty salon I wend and £70.00 later I had nice lashes that were going to last me months, or so I thought.
After having the lashes on for two of three days they all started to fall out one by one, which was very disappointing as they were so expensive to get applied in the first place.
I loved the overall look I got from the lashes so I decided to try them myself as they actually looked very simple to apply.
I headed to Boots and purchased a pack of Eylure individual eyelashes, so I could do a DIY eyelash extension.
**** The Product ****
The eyelashes are a semi permanent extension that is used to both thicken and lengthen your own eyelashes, as these are all individual after they have been applied you will get a nice even and natural look.
Basically these individual eyelashes are made up of four-five synthetic fake eyelashes and fixed together with a little black bead. These lashes are only applied to the top eyelid lashes so there is enough in the box for at least 2 applications.
This box a false eyelashes contains three rows of nineteen individual eyelashes, each row is a different length starting are short, medium and long.
I bought the black eyelashes as I always wear mascara, but these can also be bought in light black / grey, brown and navy blue.
**** Application ****
This can be very tricky at first but after a bit of practice it gets easier.
Firstly you need to remove any eye make up and ensure that your eyelashes are completely clean and dry before even attempting to put the lashes on.
Take each individual eyelash out of the box with a pair or tweezers and dip the bulb / bead on the end of the eyelash in to the glue provided, once you have a small bead of glue on the eyelash gently place it onto your top lashes.
You have to place it as close to the eyelid as possible, but do not glue it to your skin as this can be painful.
Repeat the process until you have applied enough eyelashes to fill then and thicken them up.
To remove the eye lashes you have to buy a glue remover from boots, but I personally use an oil based make up remover and this works just as well as a fraction of the price.
**** Price ****
I got these on offer for £4.99 a box, which is very good as I have had two applications from them.
These semi permanent eyelashes can last up to two weeks if they are cared for correctly, I never put mascara on the lashes as they clag up and stick together. As these were black I found not need to use mascara, I only put it on to my lower lashes to blend the colours together.
**** My Views ****
As far as I am concerned these were a brilliant buy, two applications for a fiver is very good value.
I found that if I took my time applying these they lasted a lot longer, but when I rushed them I only got a few days from them.
My main bug bear was the fact that they were all bent after going to sleep, but this was easily fixed when I washed my face in the morning and the warm water straightened them back out.
I will never pay excessive amounts like £70.00 to get these done again when I can now do them my self at a fraction of the price, granted the ones that cost a fortune did look nice and last longer than these but these do give the same result.
I'm a total false eyelash lover! I went through a stage of collecting, so i have a whole collection of weird, wonderful and everyday ones. My own eyelashes are not that long and it makes such a noticeable difference when i wear falsies. I brought these on recommendation from a friend. I brought them from Sally's although i believe I've seen them in both Superdrug and Boots. I can't remember how much they cost but i believe it was around £8 and then i had to buy semi-permanent eyelash glue separately for another £3. So this was not a cheap venture.
To cut it short - these things are a bloody nightmare. Don't waste your time and do not even consider trying to do it on your own at home!
You are given a number of eyelashes in 3 sizes, S, M & L. The idea is that you then use a piece of foil and pour a small amount of glue onto it, you then use tweezers to pick up the individual lashes and roll the bulb of the eyelash in the glue and apply to the very base of your eyelashes. This sounds a lot easier than it really is!!
If you don't drop and lose the eyelash in the process you're pretty likely to stick it in the wrong place. They also tend to bend in funny directions, so they just look a bit spidery and weird. Also they're quite feather lite and you can't use mascara, so for all the trouble you go through, they don't make that much difference.
The promise from eyelure is that your eyelashes will last up to 4 weeks - i'd love to know who can keep these on for 4 weeks! I've sat around sticking these on about 3 times now and for my hours work I've had eyelashes for a maximum of 3 days! I think they just fall off throughout the day, also whilst you sleep.
The worst is that when some fall off, you're left with one which you either have to cut to try and blend it in...or buy remover to get them off!
Anyway, the conclusion of this entire review really is that if you want false eyelashes that last - go to your beautician! Don't sit around at home using these as not only is it a waste of money it's a waste of time
I went through a phase where I wanted to wear fake eyelashes everyday so I started to build up a collection and discovered the brand eyelure however as I was to learn these lashes ain't so eyeluring!!
The first time I tried them was right before a night out, i assumed seeming as though they were individual lashes they would be easier as I wouldn't have to line them up like the all-in-ones, how wrong was I.
Not only were these really quite tricky to grasp from the packet but the glue which to this day I am still completely sure did not get in my actual eye, was the most painful thing that has ever been on my face. It stings like hell. For no reason and made me eye automatically clamp shut with pain! I had attatched the eyelashes wrongly and eventually opened my eye so thought right forget this I'll just use the lash remover liquid to take it off...oh no no, still just as much if not more pain.
The stinging OH the stinging! How can something so painfull be passed off as a safe product when I have't even got it INSIDE my eye it was just on my lash line and maybe the bottom of my eyelid but i felt like someone had japped me in the eye with a rusty spoon.
So heres the low-down, simply do not use these lashes and definately don't use them if you are allergic to anything. If you really like the look of them, buy them but use the white sticky glue that you get with cheaper lashes, this glue is pliable and won't make you feel like your eyes are going to fall out.
I feel like maybe something was left out of the instructions with these lashes, there must be a pain free way to apply them but I couldn't seem to figure it out, I have used fake eyelashes for years now and never have any trouble with other glues, just this one.
