In my 25 years of living I have worn false eyelashes twice, and that includes this pair right here. The first time was New Year a couple years ago and they looked bloody awful. I went for big gaudy looking ones, didn't put them on properly and looked like a tit! This Haute Couture pair, I got from FABBGlasgow (post here) in October and I only got round to using them on Dec 10th for the Bloggers Christmas Party (post here) and it's taken me over another month to get the post up. I'm a shite blogger sometimes!
Due to the debacle of the last lashes I was really hestitant about trying these out but I knew I eventually would. I'm a total noob when it comes to them so I took to twitter before applying them for tips and tricks. Everyone was really helpful! Gotta love those #bbloggers
As you can see they came with plenty instructions on the back of the packet and even within the packet. No less than 12 different languages! I didn't bother with the booklet but did pay attention to the ones on the back of the packet and my trusty twitter tips!
I loved the wee applicator it came with but it was just too fiddly for me, perhaps once I am more experienced in the art of falsies I'll be able to master it. If you've got any tips, please let me know!
I was absolutely terrified when it came to putting them on. They looked massive and I thought I'd look like a tit, again. Luckily, everyone's tips kept me on the right track and I got them on with minimal fuss. It took a while to get used to wearing them, the first hour or so felt weird as fuck. I kept going to rub my eye and pull them off but I persisted and it settled right down! They didn't look as huge and clumpy as I imagined either, dare I say it they did look slightly natural! I think next time I wear false lashes, I'll trim them a bit so they aren't hanging over but apart from that I wouldn't do anything different!
Unfortunately I forgot to put the lashes back into the try once I'd taken them off so I kinda ruined them and only got the one use out of them. I'll be making sure I don't do that again next time! I think they looked really good though and it's definitely a better experience than the first time. Definitely goes to show you should give things a second chance!
