As you may or may not know, I'm in some strange false eyelashes phase. I just can't stop buying them! A couple of weeks ago I signed onto Ebay and was taken aback with all the false eyelashes listed. Tons of lashes, lots of styles, pretty cheap prices. Of course, you buy what you pay for, but in this case I think I came out OK.
I received 40 pairs of eyelashes (yes, I only have two eyes...) for 3.99 plus 3.99 shipping. That's $7.98 for 40 pairs of eyelashes!!! Pretty good, huh?
Yes, yes, I know, you get what you pay for. But for $7.98?? Really??! The lashes are synthetic, but the lash spine is thin and flexible. The lash spine or band is the portion that glues onto the eyelid. If the band is flexible, it's easier to adhere to the lid and easier for the lashes to conform to the lid. If the band is bulky and thick, it's a whole lot harder to use the lashes.
There were four boxes sent to me. Each box had ten pairs of eyelashes. Each box was a different style. I'm glad they sent four different styles, since I don't know what I would have done with four boxes of the same style!
Before I got into this phase, I did use false eyelashes. But now, I'm starting to use them almost every day. Of course, I'll tone it down for work.
These eyelashes were purchased from an ebay seller from Hong Kong, named Glamlabel. They are made of synthetic soft fibers, and they're gorgeous. A bit dramatic for me, but I'll still get some use out of them.
Synthetic lashes can sometimes still appear as natural as human hair eyelashes. But, synthetic are less delicate and are sometimes less expensive. Due to the fact that they are more sturdy, can be reused if taken care of properly. The only negative thing about these lashes, is they do appear a bit shiny when they are worn. You can dull the shine down by applying some mascara.
I'm really enjoying this eyelash phase and I hope to post another haul from my eyelash adventures :) Hope you enjoyed this post!
