If you know me well (or even just speak to me for about twenty minutes) then you’ll know the 3 things I absolutely could not do without are fake tan, acryllic nails and false eyelashes. They are my trifecta of ‘going out out’ beauty items, and I think I’d genuinely rather go out without shoes on then without one of them. As such, the fact I’ve been able to try out THREE new eyelash brands lately is just fabulous and also dandy. As much as I love my trusty Eylure and my cheaper Primark Sultry lashes, it’s always good to see what other alternatives are out there and I feel like I’ve now discovered some proper gems. Read on my little friends, read on…
I’ve been familiar with the brand Kiss for a couple of years because of their stick-on nails (which I was a big fan of in my glue-on days, FYI), but I hadn’t tried their lashes before. However, I’m definitely now hooked. Kiss’ range of false eyelashes is impressive, and include everything from the natural-looking Featherlight Lash to the HEE-UGE Haute Couture lashes. Included in the photo above are the Ritzy Lashes*, which are part of the True Volume range. These have tapered ends that mimic the appearance of natural lashes, as well as a criss-cross texture that I prefer for maximum eyelash fluffiness. Prices for Kiss lashes are similar to Eylure at around £5-6 a pair, though they also have some really great value double packs.
Next up we have Threads, a brand I’ve seen popping up on Instagram a lot recently. All of their lashes are handmade, and have an extra flexible band that makes application so, SO much easier (anyone who’s battled with those cheap eBay lashes with a band about as thick as your finger will feel the relief here!) They are at the slightly pricier end of the false lash scale, with a pair such as the above Emiloo lashes* costing £9 per pair, but they’re obviously incredibly well made. I haven’t tried these yet, but can’t wait to give these mega volume ones a go.
Red Cherry Lashes
Finally, I was contacted by what just might be my new favourite website, FalseEylashes.co.uk, and asked to pick out some more lashes to try. The website stocks favourites like Eylure, Nouveau and also Kiss, but the brand that caught my eye to try was Red Cherry*. They’re cruelty-free, latex-free, human hair eyelashes and they’re incredibly reasonably priced at just £3.99 a pair. I was sent two pairs of Red Cherry lashes to try and wore one last weekend for Halloween, so I can now confirm they’re super easy to apply and felt so comfortable on. They’re not sold with adhesive, but considering I discover about eight of those little Eylure glues just walking from my living room to the kitchen, it’s not a biggie for me. In general, I also think the False Eyelashes website is just amazing and although I’d never really considered buying my lashes online before, I definitely will be from now on.
Have you tried any of these lash brands, or would you like to? Let me know in the comments!
