“ Brand: Revlon / Type: False Eyelashes / Suitable for: Eye „
I bought these Revlon false lashes just before Halloween last year as I was planning on dressing up. False lashes for me are something I save for special occasions or fancy dress, because they make a great high impact addition to an outfit. I usually stick to Eylure lashes (see my review) but having seen these once I decided to switch my brand loyalty and generally Revlon products are good.
The eyelashes come in a partially clear plastic box. I actually think the plastic box is a really great idea, as all other eyelashes I have bought in the past come in cardboard and therefore tend to get squashed when travelling. This plastic box retains the shape and protects the lashes from any damage. Inside in a plastic tray which slides out and each eyelash is attached to a curved piece of plastic.
The lashes look really great, they are very full and long and yet have a real natural look to them. What I don't like about some Eylure lashes is that the lashes seem to be quite sparse and spaced out. These Revlon lashes are super full with a generous dispersal of lashes across the entire eyelid rim. They also span out towards the end and become longer, giving a really natural look to your lashes which is great.
They look really nice when on, they give a high impact look but retain a natural quality which meant many people had no idea they were fake. I usually get asked if I am wearing lashes when I wear Eylure but these Revlon lashes were realistic enough that people just believe I had lovely full lashes. I think that also makes these a great pair of false eyelashes to be worn in day and night time, which definitely makes them more versatile than others I have used.
I do have one quite major issue with these falsies though and it is something that has really irritated me every time I use them. Though it is displayed on the box (in pretty small print) I totally missed this when I bought them, but it tells you that you have to purchase the glue separately. I have never had to do this with any other eyelashes I have bought and so at the time happily took them to the counter without realising. Fortunately I had a pair of Eylure lashes at home that still had the glue in them which meant I could wear these Revlon lashes after all, but it did really irritate me that no glue was provided. I think this is essentially a marketing ploy to get you to spend more money by buying something separately that they could very easily supply with the product. It's such a shame because other than that these are great lashes, but it annoys me that they are trying to force you to spend more money than you should.
The lashes cost me £5 which is fairly standard for a pair of falsies, though without the glue I guess this makes them a little bit more expensive than most and far less convenient. I probably will buy these again but only if I have some spare glue lying around at home, otherwise I'll be back to Eylure who provide you some with their lashes.
A nice pair of lashes, it is a shame they don't provide glue.
