Fluttering my eyelashes to get what I want!

Advantages: Look great
Disadvantages: Impossible to be reusable!
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!
