Falsies REVIEW

Last night when I was having my brows done at my local Benefit Brow Bar I over heard that they did eyelashes. Now my eyelashes have always been an insecurity thing with me. Being a red head mine are small fair and almost nonexistent. So for $26 bucks I thought I would give it a try.

I took a before picture but I took it before we took my mascara and makeup off. (also AFTER I had my brows done so I am a bit red. I have to say though their wax doesn't hurt AT ALL and I am a wimp)


I went with the black ones. I wish I had gone with brown. Brown looks more natural but I said WHO WANTS NATURAL give me doe eyes. But I didn't quite realize how lacking I was in lashes. My husband thinks I look like a doll and had me tilting my head up and down closing them like a doll does.

The first hour it was a tish annoying like WHAT IS THAT ON MY EYE. Now today I can't even really feel them. She applied them in little clumps of 3 lashes at a time. It didn't feel like much. Just someone putting something on your lashes. They are applied to the lashes instead of your lash line like temporary lashes. It took maybe half and hour and it will last about two weeks. I can take them off at any time with baby oil.

Yesterday's makeup detail vs. today. Both were taken at the same time of the morning in the same spot.

Now they are obviously not that subtle. If I trim them and went with brown next time I think it be. But I have my wedding anniversary this weekend and I think it will look great for going out!

Oh and all photos are CLICKABLE in this post.

I also wanted to mention that Benefit Cosmetics is AMAZING and worth checking out. Their stuff is a bit spendy and I can't afford it much the time but the things I do have from there I adore. My foundation I wear daily is from there. I am wearing it above I am also wearing their blush Coralista today.

I absolutely love them on you. I have the thin, pale lash thing and I get frustrated by them regularly - you have me wanting to try the false ones. Also I like the black! Natural is overrated.

Holy cow! They're AMAZING!!! I totally love them. You look fabulous, and though I get why you might want something a bit more natural, I really think they look gorgeous the way they are.

YES! I thought something was different! I'm probably going to wear my fake lashes to may party tonight, and I agree, if you're gonna do fake lashes do 'em BLACK! I only use one product from Benefit, and it happens to be their Bad Gal Lash mascara and I lurv it. What a fun way to pump up the volume!

I've never tried false lashes before. These are so awesome and so of course I want to copy you.

Lisa said...

So pretty! I want to get them! But I'd be worried in taking my make up off that they'd come off too. How are they holding up?

Marianne said...

Wow! Your eyes stand out so much... Love it, it suits you very well!

They look awesome! I am so into fake lashes lately. I didn't even know that there were any that you can leave on for days on end.
