Eylure Naturalites Double Lash
Advantages: Look brill
Disadvantages: None really!
I absolutely love false lashes and I admit i've got a bit of an unhealthy addiction to them! I've got a huge box full of lots of different brands of false eyelashes but my favourite brand is most definetly eylure, they're not the cheapest brand but their lashes are always really good quality and look lovely. Eylure have quite an extensive range of lashes but my favourite is the 'naturalites', which are marketed as being an easy way to give your lashes plenty of volume while still looking reasonably natural and being lightweight. I love this range as there's such a variety of lashes to choose from, and I usually opt for style 070 which is lots of thin, long lashes which I wear during the day when shopping or going out and about - they are gorgeous and look so natural. On nights out however I like to get glammed up and i'm a big fan of overdoing things - sexy outfits, massive hair, huge, glossy lips and gorgeous, big lashes, and so last month when I was invited to a friends 21st I decided to wear some of the biggest lashes in my collection - the naturalite double eyelashes (style 205).
I bought these lashes from Boots for £7.10 while they had an offer on, which was buy one, get one half price. Eylure lashes can be purchased from pretty much anywhere though - Superdrug, Amazon and even supermarkets, and the great thing about this brand is that although they're quite expensive their lashes are often on offer such as 3 for 2, or occasionally buy one get one free. The prices for this particular set of lashes ranges from £5ish to £7.50 depending on where you buy them from. I think this is definetly much more expensive than a majority of other brands but I still think that it is good value due to the quality and because they look so nice! The Eylure Naturalites Double False Eyelashes have a layered style for a full and textured effect, according to the product description on the Boots website. They are very thick and are around average length for a pair of false lashes with the length of each lash varying very slightly. They are much, much bigger and bolder than any of my other false lashes and if i'm honest I felt slightly nervous the first ever time that I used them as I was pretty scared they'd look ridiculous, which I promise they don't! I'm not going to lie - they don't look completely natural, but they are very subtle considering how much bigger they are than my usual false lashes, they don't look tacky and aren't the kind of lashes that are so ridiculously over the top that people stop and look.
I own these lashes in black and as far as i'm aware this is the only colour available which may be a disadvantage for fairer haired people who would prefer them in brown, however as I have dark hair they don't look too dark or over the top on me, they are around the same colour as my natural lashes but obviously with a slightly more glossy appearence and they blend in with my natural lashes perfectly. I always apply mascara and eyeliner to ensure that they look as 'blended in' as possible and always apply eyeliner to my upper lashline in order to avoid the lash band strip showing, which is very inportant which these as the lash band is noticeably thicker than my other lashes, however once a bit of eyeshadow and eyeliner is applied to the eyelid it's completely unnoticeable.
These lashes are comfortable to wear and feel secure - they're not the flimsy kind of lashes and both feel and look good quality. They're lightweight, but do have a slight noticeable weight on my eyes, however I don't feel blinded by the sheer size or weight of them on my lashline - obviously when i'm wearing them I can tell they're on but they're not the kind of lashes where i'm constantly feeling like I need to adjust them! As with anything glued to your face, at first it can feel like you want to brush them away/off your lids, but you will soon get used to them. Applying these lashes is simple, like all lashes it's quite a fiddly procedure putting them on but it doesn't take long and because each strip of lashes is labelled left and right the application procedure doesn't take too long as it's easier to adjust them to the shape of my eye and I don't need to faff around trying to apply them to the wrong eye! You get a tiny tube of eylure lash adhesive with the lashes too which I think is good and the eylure adhesive is great quality (although opening the tiny, fiddly tube is always a bit of an effort).
The most inportant thing to do when putting these lashes on is to stay patient and calm, if you feel that they don't look right or are too long for your eye shape, then gently pull them off straight away (the glue dries fast) and trim them, then start over. Make sure that the lashes are as close to the root of your natural lashes as possible. Once your lashes are applied remember to make sure that they look nice open and closed, then apply your mascara and eyeliner making sure the lash band is completely merged into your natural lashline. I usually use a flat liner brush and then apply black gel liner, and it looks brill! On a side note, remember to use primer to apply your eyeshadow to avoid any fallout onto your lashes.
I've worn these lashes a few times now and have stocked up on a few more pairs as I love them so much. They make my lashes look full and thick without been too dramatic or over the top, they don't look completely natural but I don't think they look obviously fake either because they're more thick than long. The lashes overall are good quality and look lovely, so i'd definetly reccomend them!
Summary: Affordable, good quality lashes
