I bought these lashes after falling in love with Eylures individual lashes. I do love those lashes but when i am in a rush i need something quick to put on, and these are perfect, they are very subtle and not too over the top yet still create gorgeous long lashes.
They come on a white plastic tray which is in a purple box with a clear window area at the bottom so you can see the thickness and style of the eyelashes. Inside the box you can fins safety instructions and a small glue.
These eyelashes are perfect for creating the natural yet glamorous look. I found them perfect to wear during the day as they are very subtle, whilst opening up my eyes. They are slightly bigger than my eye so had to cut some of the eyelashes off to fit on my eyelid, but this is ideal as it will fit everyone's eyelid. The glue that is supplied with these eyelashes I can not fault, better than many of the previous ones I have bought in the past. It is very strong and lasted all week, i did have to re glue down the ends after a shower sometimes as the heat did begin to melt it, but they never fell off. They are very compatible with my makeup as I always use eyeliner on top and occasionally run mascara through them if i am going out somewhere, and it does not go clumpy on the glued section. I did have a few problems application wise as they can be a bit fiddly but after a few attempts i can put them on easily now.
Overall I absolutely love these they are so pretty yet natural, fantastic value for the money at around £5 depending on where you buy them.
I've got quite thin eyelashes and I also have the problem that I pick them from time to time and so they are really quite thin and often bare so I recently decided to try some false eyelashes and see if that would help with making them look fuller and a bit sexier.
After a quick search in Boots I decided to buy the Eylure brand as these seemed to stock quite a lot of these and I didn't like the look of the other brands that were quite big and bushy and looked really fake. Eylure are described as natural volume for a subtly full look.
The eyelashes come as a pack of two, obviously, one for each eye and are presented on a plastic tray. It tells you which one is right and which one if left too which is handy. I like this because when you take them off you have somewhere to store the lashes again until you want to use them again. That was something I was really interested in too, I wanted some lashes that were reusable and not just for a one time use so I pleased to read in the instruction leaflet that with careful use and storage these eyelashes can be used again and again.
The lashes comes with a little bottle of glue but before I even tried this I decided to hold them up to my eye to see what they looked like. Well, on first try they looked a bit too long and dramatic for me, they were nice looking but I wanted them to look a bit more natural and a bit unnoticeable when I had them on so what I did very careful was to trim them just a little bit to get them shorter but to a length that looked natural for my eyes.
It takes a few goes to be honest to get these to stick properly and look good. The instruction leaflet is actually really quite helpful and it tells you to how to fit them well by looking down into a mirror so you can see the top of your eyes and apply the lashes as closely to your natural lash line as you can without them being on top. I actually use a little pair of tweazers to help me with this as I find they hold onto the fake lash quite nicely and allows me to press it down and hold it there whilst it sticks.
When it comes time to take them off I thought it would be really painful but actually it doesn't hurt at all. You just have to pinch one side and then gently pull and they come off quite easily.
I think they look quite natural, obviously they are a bit synthetic looking when you just see them in the case but once they have been applied and I have added some mascara to them I think they look quite natural. I don't wear them everyday, probably only on special occasions and something nice during the day but I have been pleased with how these look and feel and am glad I can wear them again and again. The pac cost me £5.99 from Boots and are false eyelashes I recommend.

Eylure make a large range of different beauty products mainly false lashes and accessories. Their product can be found in stores such as Boots, Superdrug and some supermarkets. Eylure make the largest range of false eye lashes available in a huge range of different styles. They have recently paired up with Katy Perry & Girls Aloud to create different more glamorous looking lashes suitable for the evening or nights out on the town. I can remember seeing Eylure products in my local Boots store for a very young age but it wasn't only until recently that false lashes actually appealed to me. I had no idea how to put false lashes on so I purchased a starter kit (I reviewed this product) and started from there. The kit was really useful in teaching me how to apply lashes properly and I now felt I was ready to try and apply the lashes without using the kit. Eylure lashes are suitable for all eye shapes and enhance the natural beauty of your eyes. They are ideal for regular wear or for special occasions. The lashes are also ultra lightweight are contact lens friendly and are reusable.
= = = = = =
Eylure strip lashes come in a huge range of different styles suitable for both day or not. Some of the lashes are thin and very subtle whilst others are thicker and dark. The lashes have different reference numbers on them, for example on the box of lashes I chose I can see that they are number 101 in the range. This is really handy if I need to purchase the lashes again in the future as I can go and find them straight away by looking for the reference number on them. Normally with eyelash curlers and good mascara my lashes don't look too bad; how-ever I have always loved the look of thicker more volumised lashes. This is why I decided to purchase some, plus I also had a big night out on the town coming up and as I haven't been out for months I wanted to make an effort and to look and feel good. On the lashes I chose it states that they are ultra glam lashes for evening wear. The lashes I chose look quite long and look quite thick with plenty of volume, how-ever I knew these didn't look too fake when I had applied them as I had used these lashes before.
The lashes come stuck lightly to a white plastic tray. On the tray it has the number of the lashes and also tells you which lash strip is for which eye. The tray comes in a cardboard box which is mainly white in colour with black writing and you can see that the product is made by eylure. It also states on the box that the lashes are ultra lightweight, contact lens friendly and are reusable. On the back of the box are pictures on how to apply the lashes and the finished results. It also gives you some information about the lashes in a few different languages. If you pull the tray out of the box you will also find a list of instructions on how to use the lashes and you will find a small tube of adhesive to stick the lashes on with.

You can purchase the lashes from a range of different stores including Boots, Superdrug and some supermarkets. I purchased my lashes from my local Boots store for £5.35 which I thought was reasonable as I could re-use the lashes as long as I took care of them. The lashes very rarely get reduced or are on offer; how-ever it's always good to check prices in different stores as some stores may have them slightly cheaper.
Preparing the Lashes
= = = = = = = = = = =
It's best to apply most of your make up before applying the lashes, however take into consideration that if you have used any products on the eyelid such as primer or foundation that can stop the lashes form sticking properly so ensure you leave your eyelids make up free. Hold the lashes up against your own and trim them if needed ensuring you trim them form the outside edge trimming a few lashes each time. I always find that I need to trim off at least 5 single lashes until they fit against my natural lashes. If you want to apply mascara to your own natural lashes now is the time to do it. I never normally bother with this as I find that my natural lashes blend in with the false lashes anyway. I ensure I have everything I need in front of me ready to apply the lashes which include a well sized mirror, pair of tweezers, orange stick and the lash glue.
Applying the Lashes
= = = = = = = = = =
I always apply the lashes looking down into a mirror, how-ever you may prefer applying them a slightly different way by looking straight into a mirror that is on the wall.
1. I hold the lash strip gently in between my thumb and finger and apply the glue using my right hand. The glue is white in colour and you will notice a flat like applicator in which you apply the glue to the strip lash with. You don't need to use too much but you so need to ensure you apply enough glue to ensure it sticks. I also tend to put a little extra glue at the ends as I find this is where it can become slightly loose once applied. After I have applied the glue I gently pick up the tweezers with my right hand and grip the lashes with the tweezers ready for application. After applying the glue you need to wake for at least 30 seconds for the glue to become tacky, which is when the lashes are ready to apply. Never apply the glue directly to your own lashes, only apply it to the strip lashes which came with the product.
2. Looking down in the mirror holding the lash strip with the tweezers I applied them to as close to the lash line as possible putting slight pressure on the middle of the lash strip to ensure it sticks. I then ensured the ends were in place and also applied slight pressure here as well to ensure they were in position. If the lashes aren't quite right you can push them slightly using the flat end of an orange stick before they actually stick in to place.
3. I always apply some liquid eyeliner close to the lash line and some pencil eyeliner to the bottom lash line so the lashes blend in with no tell tale signs. I find that this really finishes the final look of the lashes and it helps to make the lashes look really natural.
4. You can use eyelash curlers to curl the lashes; how-ever I don't ever think there is any need to do this with the eylure lashes. You can also apply a few coats of mascara, which will also help the lashes bond to your own natural lashes. I never apply mascara as the lashes I chose look quite dark anyway so I don't feel the need to do this.
As long as you apply the lashes properly, the lashes will last all night without coming off. You must remove the lashes before going to sleep.
Removing/Caring for your Lashes
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
As the glue for the eyelashes has latex in it the lashes are easily removed and it doesn't hurt. Simply pull the lash from the outside edge ensuring you don't grab any of your natural lashes and gently peel them off. If you have used mascara on the lashes you may need to throw these away, how-ever if you haven't used mascara on the lashes you can pop them back on the tray ready to use again. When you do use the lashes again you will need to pull any excess glue off which can be done by using your fingers or a pair of tweezers. I've heard that you can wash the lashes in a very mild soapy solution to get rid of the mascara, how-ever I am not sure how true this actually is and I haven't tried it.
= = = = = = = =
I love these eyelashes and the number (101) lashes I chose are definitely my favourite for a night out on the town as they don't look fake and they look natural. I also don't need to put mascara on them as they are quite dark and have lots of volume to them as well. The lashes can be a little fiddly to apply, especially if you have never tried applying lashes before. It did take me a few attempts with the lash applicator kit before I actually chose to move onto these lashes and applying them with some tweezers. You do need to have quite a steady hand to apply these as the last thing you want is to poke yourself in the eye with the tweezers. The good thing about the glue is that it does dry clear so if you do apply too much then you can't really see this anyway, especially after applying some eyeliner and other make up. In terms of value I think the lashes are reasonably priced, especially as I don't use mascara on mine and can use them over and over again. If you do run out of the lash fix glue you can purchase this separately in Boots & Superdrug, you can also purchase the glue in black to help blend in with the lashes a bit more. I would definitely recommend the lashes to others, but you do need to have patience with them. I will be using these lashes again and again and would also consider other designs of lashes in this range.

I've only bought Eylure False lashes a few times but each with a different variation.
Luckily I had a friend with me the first time I used them and she had used them before so she gave me lots of tips. First of all I measured them along my eyes and found they were too long so had a trim a few of the lashes off of each end, depends what type they are you may have to experiment with how many or which side to cut them off.
Next you have to apply the glue to the lashes which is much easier than I thought it would be, you don't need loads but what you need may look like too much at first. The glue comes in a tiny little screw pot with a plastic application which is very tiny and flat, run this along the full length of the lash. Wait a few seconds for the glue to become tacky so it will stick easier, then line back up with you eyes, you can use tweezers as they are more precise than your fingers. Then gently push them to help them stick, you'll then have to wait a few seconds for the glue to fully dry and it dried clear. Then you can go over with eyeliner to neaten up any messes and hide excess glue.
The first time I used them they felt really tight and uncomfortable on my eyes but this is normal and after a few minutes of blinking you become used to it and can't feel them anymore. I've never had my eyelashes fall off but carry the glue in my bag just in case. I have even accidently fallen asleep in them too (ew) but it proved they can stay on for a very long time! When it is time for them to come of they peel off very easily and if done carefully they can be worn a few more times. I think the thicker variations can be worn more than the natural ones as they are thinner it's easier for them to lose their shape a little.
I think how natural they look depends on what type you buy and how big your eyes are for example the 'natural' ones on my look waaay too long and creepy making my lashes look spidery where as the thicker bolder ones look good as they add lots of volume to my eyes making a dramatic impact rather than a cheap sticky leg look. I prefer the thicker ones overall anyway because they just generally look better.
I highly recommend these lashes, especially for the price and they can be worn a few times too, I often seen them on offer for 2 for £8 in Boots or Superdrug too. My friend who is more experienced with false eyelashes says she slightly prefers Ardell lashes sometimes but Eylure have the best glue and she ends up buying Eylure lashes more often anyway because they are cheaper too.
I don't have the biggest eyelashes in the world because of the years of abuse they have endured due to wearing mascara and then having to remove... Naturally as a child I have big eyelashes which my daughter has inherited off me (which I am very jealous about!).
Strangely I didnt start using glue on eyelashes until around 2-3 years ago - my first experiance my beautician put on some single lash extensions for me and I couldn't believe the difference it made! Sadly the next time when I attempted to glue on the single lashes myself I failed badly. I was told by friends the strips were much easier to apply so when I came across these Eylure Naturalites I decided to have a go with these.
I tend to purchase a set on average once every 1-2 months and only tend to wear them if its a special occasion... I don't use them daily. The style I go for in this range is the Super Full ones but there is a variety depending on how you want your lashes to look.
The packaging these days look different to the above photo - the box the eyelashes come in is a normal cardboard material. The front label is taller than the back due to the hanging strip. The front also shows a transparant section which you can see the eyelashes through. To get the eyelashes out you need to open one of the sides and slide the contents out. The lashes sit on a plastic section inside the box.
Inside the box you get your set of eyelashes which clearly state which eye each lash is supposed to go on - either left or right - you also get a folded up instruction section about how to apply and safety - and you get the glue to hold them on included.
The front label claims the lashes add fullness and length to your natural eyelashes and that they enhance the natural beauty of your eyes. They are suitable for all eyeshapes and are ideal for regular wear or special occasion.
The back label gives the same statement again in a number of other languages.
The label also states that you can reuse the eyelashes again and again as long as you care for them properly. I usually dispose after one use however because they do tend to get ruined if you apply eyeliner and mascara over the top of them. Its impossible to keep them in good condition unless you use no make up with them in my opinion.
The instructions give a lot of detailed information on how to use.
Ease of use
The eyelashes are very easy to apply yourself - it depends on the person, I can apply myself but I know a lot of my friends have someone else put them on for them.
The best way to put them on (and keep them on!) is to apply the glue enclosed to the inside strip of the lash, wait for a minute or two for the glue to start to set and then apply. I then add another layer of glue on top of the fake eyelash and my eyelid to hold in place and mix in the excess glue. I always wear thick layers of black liquid eyeliner for extra effect and this covers over any remaining bits of glue.
One downside is if not applied in the right position it can make the corners of your eyes very uncomfortable if it rubs against them. Be sure to apply right!
This is the only brand of fake eyelashes I have tried and would be wary of trying another brand as these already work perfect for me.
The Super Full lashes in this range do look natural on as long as you blend them in with other make up like mascara and eyeliner. For a night out they do stay on and I have never had an incident of one hanging down my face!
Price & Availability
You can buy these in a range of stores including Tesco, Superdrug, Boots and Debenhams and you can expect to pay between £4-£5 for a set.
My own lashes would not win any prizes for their volume or length no matter how much time I spend layering them with mascara or clamping them in curlers! Flicking through magazines, all I would see were full page adverts for mascara, with models gazing back with their amazing eyes! I wanted that look too - so I tried every mascara you could shake a stick at - I tried ones with massive brushes claiming to increase the volume, but they just made everything clumpy, shorter and heavy! I tried really small and thin brushes that promised to increase the length but surprise, surprise - nothing. I even forked out for a 'lengthening serum' that I found online but it just gave me conjunctivitis! Preparing to accept my own stubby lashes I was about to admit defeat when an advert on TV caught my eye - false lashes. Would this be the way forward?
Popping down to my local Superdrug the next day, I marvelled at the many different false lashes on offer - the eye equivalent to hair extensions - why hadn't I thought of these before! I chose a pair of 'Eylure Naturalites False Lashes' in number 120 and have been wearing them since! (Different pair obviously!)
The falsies come in a small, square cardboard packaging that can be recycled as long as you remove the plastic window that enables you to see the lashes themselves. Opening up the box couldn't be simpler as most make up can be a task in itself to get into it - a little white tray is pulled out with the lashes sat on top with the helpful 'L' and 'R' so you know which one is for which eye! As well as this, an instruction and care leaflet is included which tells you how to prepare your eyes, how to apply the lashes and also how to care for them. The last thing that you will find is the adhesive which I personally find to be the best glue going! If you are new to eye lashes I really would recommend this glue as it dries fast but also dries transparent so no tell tale signs give you away!
I will admit, it took me a few attempts and a lot of patience but through bleary eyes I managed to find a comfortable way to wear them - here is what works for me:
1) Coat your own lashes in mascara so the glue has something to hold on to
2) Measure the lashes up against your own to check the fit, if they are a little too long simply trim them down. Then apply a line of the Lashfix adhesive along the lash band and wait about 30 seconds so it becomes tacky
3) Using tweezers or your fingers, place the lashes directly on top of your own and gently press them down until they are in the right place, wait about 30 seconds, add a coat of mascara and bat those lashes!
I would recommend these to anyone as they are so comfy to wear, easy to put on and overall give you the confidence! I recently found out that the magazine models actually use false eyelashes so they are just like the rest of us! As well as beauty perks, I have found that I am saving A LOT of money where I used to be spending about £10 every 2 weeks on mascara, I now buy one set of lashes ever few weeks for about £5 - bargain, David Dickinson would be proud! If you look after the false lashes when you take them off and clean them properly there is no reason why you cannot re-use them!
These are not just for a night out either as Eylure have a whole range of different sizes and lengths, ranging from natural beauty to full Essex glamour, you can even buy individual eyelashes to fill in those pesky gaps! One little tip I picked up is, if you feel that the band is showing - draw on some liquid or gel eyeliner over the top and hey presto - it's vanished!
Available at Boots, Superdrugs, selected Supermarkets and online too, retailing at £5.20 depending on where you choose to purchase. Say goodbye to sparse lashes and say hello to fluttering beauties!
I hardly ever really go out for a night out anymore, when I do go out however I like to dress up and make an effort and one thing I always love to wear is fake eyelashes as I love how they make my eyes look really bright and pretty. I decided to use the Eylure Naturalites False Eyelashes because I thought they looked quite nice in the packet and they had been recommended to me by a friend.
These eyelashes were quite easy to put on, I don't really have a steady hand so it can be a little bit fidgety for me, but I managed to get them on ok. These lashes come complete with glue and all so you don't need to buy anything extra to get them on.
Here is a quick rundown on how to put on these lashes:
1. Take the eyelashes in your hand, or with a pair of tweezers, and apply a small amount of eyelash glue (included in package) to the band of the eyelashes.
2. Carefully place the band as closely to your eyelashes as possible.
3. If you can see a gap between your real lashes and the fake lashes, use some eyeliner to tidily fill in the gap (only if the gap is small).
4. Use eyelash curlers on your real eyelashes and the fake ones together to blend them together.
5. Finish off the look with some mascara.
I find this process a little tricky and definitely recommend using the tweezers as they give me a little more control over the fake eyelashes than my hands.
Once I got these eyelashes on I was really happy with how they looked, they give my eyelashes more length and more volume however they aren't really over the top and they actually look rather natural compared to other fake lashes. They make my eyes look really pretty when they are on and they were quite comfortable when they had been applied properly.
I have used these lashes quite a few times and I have never had any problems with them staying in place or falling off. They can be reused as long as you do not use to much glue on them and give them a little wipe before you reuse them, however I have only been able to reuse these 2 or 3 times at a time.
I didn't find these lashes really that hard to take off, you wipe over your eyes with some luke warm water and then pull them off gently.
You can buy these eylure lashes for £5.35 in Boots, this gets you one pair and if you look after them they can be reused a few times, however they don't really last that long when I am using them as they get covered in glue and misshapen after a few uses. I think that £5.35 is a good price for these as they are one of the cheaper eyelashes in Boots, I wouldn't however spend much more on them and I only really use them on a special occasion.
Overall I think that these are a great little eyelash to use if you want a nice natural and pretty looking eyelash, they definitely add both volume and length to my eyelashes and look great on. I have no problems with them falling off and they are priced really well. I really like these lashes and plan to use them again in the future. Overall I would give these 5 out of 5 stars.

With these Naturalites eyelashes, I never used to be bothered about wearing fake eyelashes. I know some girls live on wearing them every day and cannot be seen without them but for me, I have always had quite naturally long eyelashes anyway. However, a friend of mine persuaded me to put them on for an event we were going to and when I saw the photos afterwards, I was swayed that they definitely opened up my eyes a lot more and gave me a bolder look, they do take some time to adjust to but they are good for special occasions.
These eyelashes come in a small rectangular box, there is a plastic window on the front so that you can see what eyelashes are included in the box. What I like about the Naturalites eyelashes is that they all come with a small bottle of adhesive which isn't the case with all sets of fake eyelashes. I opted for some eyelashes that aren't too dramatic, they are sat on the plastic back and the glue is included in the packet. The box gives information on these but I have used them a while so I am used to how to use them. The box is very compact and easy enough to use as the packaging looks girly.
I wear contact lenses and what I like about these is that they are contact lens friendly and they are reusable. The lashes come with 6ml lashfix strip glue and they can be worn all of the time or on the odd occasion. The model I bought 050 is to add length to shorter lashes but these to me look like a natural pair as I don't like ones that look too fake and heavy. These lashes come with everything you need to apply them but it may take some getting used to if you are funny about attaching eyelashes precisely as you want them to go on quite accurately.
Now, to start with you just need to peel these lashes from off the back of the plastic to get them on your hand. What I then do is I open the glue and lightly run it along the line of the eyelashes. Don't put too much on as you don't want it visible but just a good amount that will keep them fixed for a long time. At first you may not get these on perfect so you can peel them off and reapply, what I do is I take a cotton but to just help fix them on as sometimes my hands can be fiddly when I am trying to attach these.
Once these are fixed in place, it seems strange at first as your eyelids will feel a lot heavier and when you blink it takes time. Sometimes through the course of wearing these I panic that they are hanging off as you don't want that, the good thing is the glue is in such a small bottle it is great for putting in your bag when out. I have found that when wearing these I've never had to touch up the glue as the glue seems that strong that they seem to keep in place for a long day of wear which is great really, I've never had the panic of these falling off as they seem to stick well.
I usually have these eyelashes on for a long time usually a whole day and night if wearing and they are comfortable when on. Once I am used to blinking with them on, they are great and look good on and you forget your are wearing them. They look natural and to take them off is easy enough as you just grab the end and peel off and they come off with ease, no pain which is good. I will definitely buy these again as they give a great look and are also very easy to use when you need them.
If you fancy buying these eyelashes then you can get them online or at Boots. Amazon sell 050 the set I have for £4.95 but Boots normally sell them for £5.95.

I have never really wanted to bother with fake eye lashes before simply because I thought they looked so over the top and because my own lashes are a reasonable length anyway. However, my younger sister always wears fake lashes for a night out and I was impressed with the look she achieved and so decided that as a test run before my birthday night out in Essex in April I would try some fake lashes for my cousins 21st birthday party! The brand I purchased were the eylure naturalites evening wear lashes.
The eylure naturalite lashes are described as "ultra glam lashes-the ideal accessory" but the style I purchased was style 101 and quite natural looking I thought. The lashes come packaged in a cardboard box which has a plastic oval shaped window through which you can see the lashes which is obviously a good idea so you can choose lashes which you think will suit your style.
Inside the box you have the false lashes as well as a small pot of glue for application and an instruction pamphlet. Now I will hold my hands up here and say that I am rubbish at applying lashes despite the decent instructions provided in the pamphlet and having various practice runs before the party! As such my sister applied mine for me on the night of the party after I had applied my eye shadow and liner but before I had applied mascara.
The long black lashes fit my eye perfectly and so there was no need to trim them down which I was pleased about but of course this is something you can do if you find that the lashes are a bit too long for your eye line. Once on the lashes looked long and full but not unnatural really in my opinion and I think they only looked dramatically different to my normal lashes if you were very close to me which was nice! I was really impressed with the look the lashes gave me and I would certainly use them on another night out.
I have to say I was initially worried when my sister put the lashes on as they made me feel a bit drunk as they blurred my vision a bit for around fifteen minutes as I was very much aware of the fact that something different was around my eye. This settled down though and it soon felt normal to have the false lashes on! My eyes did not feel sore or irritated at all and the lashes were easy to remove at the end of the night too simply by pulling them off (although the glue that remains on the eye lid is trickier to remove!)
I bought the lashes from Littlewoods where they cost £6.00 but you can pick them up for around £3.75 from amazon as well which is a good price. What is good is the fact that these lashes are reusable and so I would imagine I will get at least another couple of nights out using these ones! My sister did say that the glue provided with the lashes wasn't great and so she used her own Revlon one on my lashes which may be something to consider but as a whole I really do recommend the eylure naturalite lashes as I received a lot of compliments over the night and was impressed with the look myself.
Thank you for reading my review!
I love a false lash, and have tried many many brands, Eylure have probably the largest selection of false eyelashes ranging from individuals, to their tokyo range and celebrity endorsements (girls aloud, sex and the city etc) I believe their Nauralites have the largest range of choice. When I first saw these in my local Boots I assumed they were all of a more 'natural' style - to enhance the look of your natural eyelashes, and alot of them do, with a little volume, length and/or some extra fluffiness. However there are still some in the range that pack a punch and can look very dramatic.
From my experience using Eylure lashes, they all seem to have the same type of thin band, If you're new to false eyelashes the thin band can seem daunting and the trickiest option, however with a little practice of application it is very likely you'll prefer the thin bands as they are pratically undetectable, lighter feeling and a lot more flexible so give a better fit to your lash line and are less likely to have the corners poking outwards after an hours wear!
The best way to apply these lashes (though there are tonnes of youtube videos on false eyelash application)
Make sure you have your eye makeup all applied (it's not that easy to work around falies so get it done first.
Curl eyelashes (to create a nice little shelf for your fake lashes)
Apply one layer of mascara - two maximum (you want your natural ones to blend with the fake ones so don't go overboard)
then take the false eyelashes is too bend the band of the lashes into a horseshoe shape (to soften the band)
hold against the eye to check fit (if the band is too long always trim for the outer edge one tiny bit at a time) then apply a thin even line of eyelash glue (although Eylure lash glue which included in the packs of lashes is pretty good I'd recommend purchasing some Duo Lash Glue seperately as this will keep them on all night and then some!)
Make sure you get the inner and outer corner properly
Let the glue dry for abot 30-60 seconds (you want the glue to be tack otherwise the lashes will slide around and generally make a massive mess)
Use tweezers and drop the lashes against the lash line (thats wear curling your eyelashes helps) and gently move side to side until you've got them centered
Then using your tweezers hold down each of the corners till fully dry.
Easy with a bit of practice.
One thing I would say about Eylure lashes is that as they're good quality you can re-use them several times aslong as you're careful when you take them off.
Good eyelashes, good price and excellent range.
I was reluctant to wear false eyelashes as the ones I had seen were far too long and resembled spider's legs and my worst nightmare was the thought that there would be a picture of me with an eyelash stuck to my cheek half way through the night as the adhesive wore off.
I then noticed while shopping in boots one day that they had start to make lashes for a more natural look so I decided to purchase some.
When I first tried to apply then I struggled and could not get used to them, so I opted for cheap false eyelashes so I could practice applying then and wear them around the house so that I could get used to wearing them, but I struggled to apply them properly. I then was shopping one day and came across a tool that clamps the false eyelash in a holder, the holder is the same shame as your natural eyelid making it easier to apply and I am now a pro. Feeling confident I then moved to applying the more expensive Eylure Naturalites and I have not looked back since.
When I am going out for the night or have a special occasion I like to enhance my eyelashes and make them look longer and thicker, without them looking too over the top and false. Eylure offer a wide selection of false eyelashes in different lengths, thicknesses and colours.
Now when I go out I am always being complimented on how long my lashes are, people are surprised when I tell them I have false ones on.
Eylure does not only come with the eyelashes it also has the eyelash adhesive. Naturalites come in a variety of styles including glamour, volume and extra length.
When it comes to applying the eyelashes you need to put your make up on as usual and any eye shadows or eyeliners that you want to wear. Then once you are ready you can then apply the eyelash.
You first need to check that the eyelash is the right length for your eye, if not you can trim it down. You then apply the adhesive onto the eyelash line and leave it to start to dry for a 15-20 seconds so it becomes tacky and easier to apply. You then need to place it as close to you can to your eyelash. Then with your tweezers you then touch the eyelash line gently making sure that it is secure.
Once you are happy then apply any more eyeliner as required to cover the eyelash glue, but if you use clear glue and the right amount you should not need to do this. You will not even feel them on as they are as light as a feather.
At the end of the night these are easy to remove, they are only a problem if you use too much glue. If you careful manage to remove them you will be able to reuse them the next time that you go out. Although I would say after the fifth time you really need to invest in a new pair as I find they start to lose shape.
In speaking to all of my girly friends they all use Eylure as well. My only recommendation is that of you regularly wear false eyelashes you may be better buying an adhesive that is a little larger as I find the little pot that Eylure supply, quite fiddly to use. I have now got a few favourites when it come to eyelashes I prefer 070, which have extra length and 020 which gives volume, it really depends on the occasion that you have planned to find an eyelash to suit.
I naturally have quite long lashes, but occasionally when I want to va va voom my eyes up a bit, I ALWAYS use Eylure Naturalites. They have such a wide range of lash looks to choose from and your bound to find one that suits you. Compared to other lashes that are available, they are not the cheapest brand out there. However, they are one of the best false lash brands around, and do ensure quality and wear. I always get a good few uses out of my Eyelure Naturalites, maybe around 5 uses - which works out fine.
All Eyelure products (unless the pre-glued ones) all come with their own small tube of adhesive. I've noticed they have re-designed the adhesive packaging now, which is much more easier to apply as their lash adhesive was one of the disadvantages for me and resulted to me buying my own adhesive. I normally use the the Revlon or Ardell eyelash adhesive (which are both great). However, I used the Eyelure adhesive a few days ago and was fine. Make sure you screw the lid back on properly, so it doesn't dry out and this should last you. You do not need to pile on loads of glue - just a thin line.
If you regularly wear false eyelashes, I strongly recommend you buy your own adhesive (they're normally a bit stronger too) - sometimes the small adhesives can be a bit fiddly.
I normally have to snip a little bit of the eyelashes off at each end as I find it attaches more comfortably to the eye when cut shorter. I really dislike when you get that irritating feeling of being tightly glued in the corners. So, unless you have big eyes, this is something I would recommend also - the lashes feel more naturally fit.
If the adhesive leaves a bit of white residue - just go over with liquid black eyeliner so it doesn't look too tell-tale.
I would advise all fake eyelash lovers to go with the Eyelure brand, browse in shops rather than online first for a better look at their eyelashes. All Eyelure Naturalite lashes come with a name and 3 digit number, so once you become familiar with the ones you normally use - you can probably get better deals for them online.
Finding a decent mascara to enhance your eyelashes can be such a pain simply because there are so many available you just don't know where to start. Having quite short, straight eyelashes I have tried what feels like every single mascara on the cosmetic market and while many of them work they fall short of eyelashes that make you say 'wow', which is essentially what I was looking for. Particularly on a night out I like to go for dramatic make up with smokey eyes and big eyelashes but until I came across these, it was something I had never been able to achieve. False eyelashes had always make me cringe a little because they remind me of plastic girls that slap on as much make up as possible and while I do like my make up, I didn't really want to be labelled as one of those girls. However when a friend suggested false eyelashes to me I gave it some thought and realised that they don't have to look completely fake to look nice - my friend wears some natural looking ones most days and they always look great. So, I made a special trip into town to pop into my local Boots to see what they had available.
Similarly to mascaras there are a variety of false eyelashes out there. I was tempted by some of the Girls Aloud ones however this brand really caught my eye - I imagined they must be good as Boots seemed to stock a lot of variations of their lashes compared to other brands and for £5.31 (20 points on your advantage card too if you have one) I didn't think the price was a disaster, especially considering the amount of money I have spent on mascaras, anyway! It seemed really simple as the adhesive glue needed to apply them was also included in the price and I noticed with some other brands you had to buy the glue separately. I purchased the 'Volume Plus 101' version which I felt would be best to create the look I wanted as they are quite dramatic. However they do offer much more natural looking lashes that would be more suitable for every day wear which I normally would have tried but I bought these to use for special occasions/nights out as appose to subtle day wear.
When it came to my night out that evening I was quite excited to try them out. I applied my foundation and everything else first, as well as some liquid eyeliner onto my eyelids too which was a 'top tip' from my friend who I was getting ready with! When it came to putting them on it was actually easier than I had expected - you remove them from the box and measure the false lashes against the shape and length of your own so you can cut them down if necessary and the lashes are clearly labelled for the left and right eye to avoid confusion there! You simply apply a bit of the adhesive glue onto the lash line of the false lash and leave it for about 3 seconds so the initial stickiness of the glue dries, then apply it to your eyelid, keeping it as close to your natural lash line as possible. I imagine that if you used the wrong technique to apply them it could be extremely fiddly and seem like a waste of time so make sure you get it right so you don't waste your money! After putting them on I applied some more liquid eyeliner to get rid of anything excess glue marks although this wasn't really necessary as there was only a small amount that wasn't really visible but I just wanted to make sure.
Throughout the night I checked often that they were coming away from my lashes which I was half expecting after seeing disasterous pictures on Facebook of false eyelashes hanging half on and half off and I took the glue out in my bag with me just in case but luckily, and much to my suprise they stayed exactly in place all night and didn't need touching up. I got many comments from other friends saying how great my lashes looked and asking what make they were and the pictures put of Facebook the next day looked great too! When I got home I was a bit concerned about how I was going to remove them as I didn't want to sleep with them on all night but as they hadn't moved since I applied them I started to wonder if perhaps I had applied too much glue or something, however I peeled them off gently from the edge as the instructions advise and they came off really easily - they pulled a little bit but it didn't hurt at all and it was less painless than I had anticipated! Since that night I used the same pair of lashes of 4 other occasions before needing to buy new ones which I thought was great and really could value for money. I honestly can't recommend these enough if you've had trouble with other brands of false lashes or if you just can't find a mascara to suit you. I can't believe I spent so much time without these now - I really don't know what I did before. I'm giving these 5 dooyoo stars!
Ive tried many lashes,some to over-exaggerted when applied,some sticky before pplying glue,some to long,some to small,some difficult to apply but these are perfect. There is lots of different styles,looks lengths and colours.On opening the box you can take the lashes out easily and are easy to check length against yours. The glue is a little bit bigger than you get in most other eyelash sets and is a bit more solid not as runny.( ive found if its runny it can go everywere and can end up ruining the lashes).The glue sets quickly and is quite strong as a set of lashes can last about 2-3 days.
Taking the lashes off is easy and barely leaves any traces of glue and can look like youve just got them (if not too overstyled with mascara etc).You can resuse the lashes up to 3-4 times before they start looking a bit worse for wear.
If looking in the right places they can be very cheap which is great as they are a very good set of lashes.Im forever buying lashes for partys special occasions or for general use..and these are the best lashes so far.
I was always a bit weary of fake eyelashes and thought that I'd never become a fakelash addict! I was so wrong! The first ever pair I tried was the eyelure naturalites and i was a bit nervous of applying them as i thought my eye would be clued together! But I found these eyelashes very easy to apply and you don't need to be a pro and applying them as they are so simple! Also the thing i like about these lashes are that you don't need to apply extra coatings of mascara so i was happy i didn't have to remove my mascara after a night out! They made my eyelashes look super long and thick, i was very impressed with the outcome as they look so natural, and i had a lot of people commenting on how beautiful my eye lashes looked! (if only they knew they were fake hehe!)
