      Good for a night out

      False eyelashes seem to have taken off in a really big way in recent years and everyone seems to be wearing them - from celebrities to the average girl on the high street. I'm not a fan of fakery at all and prefer a more natural look so I always though false eyelashes were, frankly, a bit weird, cheap and tarty looking. I suppose I'm lucky that I have good eyelashes already and they are quite thick and long already so I never really considered wearing false lashes. On a shopping trip out with my Mum, she was looking at them saying she would like to try them just to see what they're like but didn't like the idea of putting something on her eye. A girl shopping in the store overheard us and began chatting about how easy they are to use and so I bought a set of these Nadine lashes spur of the moment. They sat in my makeup bag for several weeks before I thought of trying them. The Eyelure Girls Aloud Lash range have a set of lashes each designed with one of the members of Girls Aloud in mind. I chose the Nadine ones as I thought they were the most natural looking out of the five and they cost me £5. The packaging is a black cardboard box with a picture of Nadine and a clear window through which you can see the lashes inside. Inside the box you have the 2 lashes clearly marked as left and right, a tube of the lash glue and an instruction leaflet. The Nadine lashes are graduated in length and so they are thicker and longer at the outer corners of the eye. The lash has a natural curve to it which should follow the curve of your lashline. Before applying any glue, you take the lash and hold it to your lashline to check the fit. If it's too long then just trim a few individual lashes from the inner part to make them fit properly. When your ready to apply, take the glue and with the little applicator inside run the glue along the base of the false lash. It is a white colour before it dries so you can see how much and where you've put it easily and you don't really need a lot of it at all - a thin coating will be enough. Give the lash a few waves about in the air (which just makes the glue start to set and it goes a bit stickier) then apply to your lashline. The lashes should just sort of fall into the correct position but you want the base of the false lash to stick onto the base of your natural eyelashes, not the skin of the base of your eyelid as I made the mistake of doing at first. The glued part should stick on the bit of your eyelid where the lash meets the skin - before the glue dries you can push the lash right into place directly on top of your natural lashline. Tweezers can be useful here to move them into place. Then gently press and hold the lash for a few seconds to let it set into place. Once set you can gently adjust the curl of the lash by pushing it up. I find it easier to apply the false lashes as the finishing touch i.e. when you have finished applying your eyeshadow and mascara. The false lashes are already black and so they don't need mascara on them. It also helps if you wear black eyeliner on the top lid to disguise the false lash as without it you can sometimes make out the false lashline. I was quite pleasantly surprised at the result with the Nadine lashes. My lashes looked longer, fuller and perfectly shaped but were not overly fake looking. In fact, at first no one noticed I was wearing false lashes until I told them I was - it actually looks surprisingly natural. Some false eyelashes can look ridiculously fake and these are definately not the ones to buy if you're after that kind of look. To take the lashes off, gently loosen the inside corner of them with your nail, grasp the false lash with your finger and gently pull them off. It's not the most pleasant feeling but it doesn't hurt and if you're gentle then it won't rip out your own lashes. Or you can put some eyemakeup remover onto some cotton wool and then place over your eye for a minute which will loosen the glue and make it easier to pull off. I found that the lashes stayed on really well throughout the night and didn't come loose at all so the glue appears to be very good. Overall I was quite impressed with these lashes. They are definately not something I would wear everyday or even regularly but for a night out or special occassion they are fun and look good. It means your lashes stay looking perfect when if you were just wearing mascara on your natural lashes they can tend to look a bit flat after a few hours. The lashes can be reused if you take care of them and pick off all the old glue on them but I think after 2 or 3 wears they really need to be replaced as they lose their shape a little. They are quite sturdy and aren't overly delicate so you don't need to worry about ripping them too much.

      Go glam!

      False eye lashes are probably the most challenging of beauty accessories to apply. I do have quite long thick eye lashes, but on occasion I opt to wear a pair of falsies for a more glamorous, dramatic look, usually saving them for special outings such as wedding parties, birthday parties and around Christmas and New Years Eve. I haven't been wearing false eye lashes for that long, but that's not for the want of trying. I always found them too tricky to apply, and as I am usually always in a hurry, I didn't have enough time to dedicate to getting them in place and fixed correctly. With a bit of perseverance, I have finally mastered the art of applying these tricky little things. It wasn't easy though, time after time I have completely messed my eye-make up up, getting my eye lids and natural lashes covered in sticky glue. There are many, many different types of eyelashes on the market offering a wide range of different looks from natural looking lashes to more dramatic, thicker lashes which really do help to glam up whatever look you are trying to achieve. These Girls Aloud - Nadine lashes are manufactured by Eylure, a well-known brand in the beauty industry and are probably one of the most dramatic pairs I have used. I did start by using more subtle, natural lashes to get me started but I have since become a little more adventurous The lashes come housed in a cardboard box with a picture of Nadine on the front. There are 5 different pairs of eye lashes from the Girls Aloud range, each one apparently designed by each member of the group. Through the transparent window of the box, the lashes are clearly visible and are attached to a plastic tray along with a tube of eye lash adhesive and an instruction booklet. The instructions are easy enough to follow, but following the instructions alone won't make this an easy task. The lashes should be applied when the make up is complete and you are also advised to apply one or two coats of mascara to your natural lashes. This is something I always do before applying false lashes as it helps to blend both sets of lashes together. Before applying the glue, I measure the lashes against my eye lid and trim them if they are too long. I usually find that all lashes I have used are slightly too long and have to trim off a little from the outside edge. It's important to make sure the lashes are the right length for your eyes to get the right look and so that the lashes do not look out of place. I also find that applying lashes that are too long can feel uncomfortable as they seem to dig into the sides of your eyes. The glue comes with a little applicator that is attached to the lid, which I find makes it easy to get a thin even line of adhesive along the length of the lashes. After about 30 seconds, the glue starts to dry and become a little tacky which is the best time to apply the lashes. Now for the tricky bit! I find it hard to get the lashes in the right place and fixing them without getting my natural lashes caught up in the glue. I have found, like the instructions suggest, that it is best to look down into a mirror. I also find that a pair of tweezers come in quite handy during the application process, either to hold the lashes in place whilst pressing gently with your finger or the other way around. The tweezers are particularly useful in getting the ends of the lashes to adhere to the lash line. When the lashes are first applied, they can feel a little strange and you can definitely notice that they are there, especially if you are not used to wearing them. They quickly become more comfortable as you get used to them and eventually forget they are there. I haven't had any trouble with the lashes falling off whilst out, but I do like to take the lash glue with me just incase I need to touch it up. The glue dries clear, and if applied correctly, isn't noticeable however, if you find that you can see the glue, a liquid eyeliner is good to cover up and residue and blend the line of the lashes into your eye make up. Removing the lashes is very simple and all that needs to be done is to gently peel them away from your eye. If you are careful in doing this and the lashes maintain their shape, I find the lashes can be used again. The Girls Aloud range of false eye lashes are widely available from store such as Boots, Superdrug and I have also seen them in New Look. I purchased mine for £4.89 from Boots which I consider to be a reasonable price for a pair of good quality lashes. For more information: www.eylure.com **Also on Ciao under the same username**

        A suprising good beauty buy

        This was my first time buying and using fake lashes, so I was a little apprehensive! Would they stick on, would I damage my eye lashes, would they peel off easily... how do I even apply them?! Fortunately, the box comes with instructions and also there are alot of youtube videos demonstrating how to apply these lashes which was a relief! I bought them from New Look for £5, and the reason I chose "Nadine" is because I wanted more body in my lashes and these looked the fullest compared to the other 4. When I opened the box, there were instructions, and also a glue applicator and it said the lashes could be used multiple times which I was glad about, because £5 for one use would have been costly! For someone who has never used fake eyelashes I was a little worried when it came to putting them on. It said to apply after mascara etc although in some YT videos I have seen it done the other way around, however as this can be a little messy with the glue I recommend doing it last so you don't have to apply eyeshadow/other make-up around it. My first attempt at putting these on was a little tricky, and I had to take them off and re-apply them a couple of times because they weren't going close enough to my lash line and it looked a little odd! However I slowly got the hang of it. I had put them on to go out for my last night of uni, for an end of year event. I was expecting at some point in the night for someone to say, erm your lashes are on your cheek! But thankfully they lasted all night until I took them off myself before I went to bed. They are relatively easy to remove, it just takes a careful peel and they should remove without any hassle. I have since used these lashes since first testing them, and I find it much easier to apply them now. Overall, I would say these lashes are a really great buy and the fact there are 5 different ones to choose from is good if you don't like the look of these lashes. Usually commercialised band products wouldn't be my thing, however I think these have been really well designed and hopefully they will last me many more uses.

          -

          False lashes. Some people love them, some people hate them. Personally, I'm a big fan of them, they always manage to make your eyes look 10 times better (if applied properly). My current favourites are the Eylure Girls Aloud Lashes - Nadine Coyle. The lashes come in a long black box with a cherry blossom pattern and a picture of Nadine on the front. She appears to be wearing the lashes in the picture, but whether she is or not is a different story. The box has a clear panel on it so you can see the lashes inside. You're shown a white piece of plastic with two strips of lashes (marked left and right), and you're also told that there is adhesive included. The back of the box has a quote from Nadine herself, "My lashes are full and layered with a really natural feel. I could wear this fun, flirty style everyday! Nadine." I'm also told that they are contact lens friendly, this isn't important to me because I don't wear contacts, but for those of you who do, you're safe! Upon opening the box and removing the plastic with the lashes on, a leaflet and small bottle of adhesive fell out. Now I've been using false lashes for years, so I did skip reading the leaflet to start with, but after going back to skim through it, I found that it simply gives care and application instructions in a few different languages. The bottle of adhesive is pretty tiny, but you really do need a very little amount. The lash glue will probably last 5 times longer than the lashes will. The lashes are long and thick. They get longer at the outer corners, and shorter at the inner corners, which is great for me as I hate when lashes are all one length all the way along. This gives them a very fluttery effect, and can lengthen your eyes. To use the lashes, you simply peel them off of the plastic tray, apply the glue and wait for it to get slightly tacky, then apply them to your own lash line. On first use, I advise loosening the band a bit as it will be slightly stiff. This will make application easier. The adhesive just looks like your typical lash adhesive, it smells like fish though, so that is slightly off putting. The lashes are easy to apply, and once they're on there, they won't budge. I've put them on at around 5pm, went out, fell asleep at a friends with them on and woken up the next day and they're still on. Now I'm not saying to put your lashes on at night to save you doing it in the morning, but these won't be falling off anytime soon. They give you a very glamorous look, not something I would personally wear everyday, but they are perfect for a night out or any other event that would require a dramatic eye. Removing the lashes couldn't be easier. Simply peel them off gently and you're done. Peel the glue off of the band and wipe any traces of mascara off of the lashes then put them back in the box so that they are ready for the next time you use them. I've worn the same set of lashes 9 times now and they are still in perfect condition. These are available from Boots, Debenhams and Superdrug for between £4.50-£5.00. This is great value for money considering the amount of use you get out of them. Advantages --------------- - gives you long, thick, fluttery lashes - great value for money - easy to apply/remove - won't fall off Disadvantages ----------------- - adhesive smells like fish I'm completely in love with these lashes and I recommend them to everyone. If you want to see how they look, then let me know and I'll give you the link to a youtube video I have where I'm wearing them. Thanks for reading!

            False Eyelashes- Nadine style

            This review is for the Eylure Nadine false eyelashes......... For those of you who have read my beauty reviews, you may have guessed that I have a slight obsession with false eyelashes. I wear false lashes regularly both for everyday wear and for evening occasions and as a result have tried a variety of styles and brands. My collection of lashes is near to around 30 pairs, some excellent whereas others very poor. This ranges from professional more expensive lashes from the M.A.C range to cheaper lashes bough online from ELF. **My Eyelashes and preferences** My family are always very surprised when I tell them that I wear false eyelashes as I do have medium to long dark eyelashes. However I always feel that false eyelashes create added thickness to my eyelashes which is something I struggle with using mascara alone. Overall I feel false eyelashes help create a wide eyed look and frame my eyes better than mascara which often makes my natural lashes look spindly with clumps of mascara in them. When choosing false eyelashes I would never opt for the "drag queen look" with lashes that look apparently fake as they are too long or thick. For everyday wear I would always opt for a fluttery, long lash which adds some thickness. For a more special occasion I would still go for long and fluttery but also a thicker false lash creating long dark lashes which still look natural. Although fiddly at first once you get the hang of applying false lashes you have a variety of looks and styles at your finger tips! ***Eylure brand*** Eylure are one of the most popular brands of false lashes and in my opinion offer the widest range of lashes in terms of styles available. The brand in my opinion is at the mid point of the market in between the more expensive professional lashes and cheaper alternatives. I was very intrigued to see that Eylure had teamed up with Girls Aloud, with each group member designing their own personal false lash set. I'm a fan of the Girls Aloud style so decided to give the "exclusively designed" lashes a go and try out all five styles. ***Eylure Girls Aloud Range- Nadine *** The Eylure lashes designed by Nadine are described to give "a full and layered look with a really natural feel"; and are a fun flirty style for everyday wear. I would agree that by just looking at the Nadine lashes in the packaging you can see they are long, and reasonably full but in a subtle wear that is perfect for both everyday wear and more special occasions. The lashes have a fullness but do not look overly dramatic or thick in the way the Cheryl and the Sarah lashes do. The Nadine lashes are black and glossy with spikiness to them especially around the outer corners. However as these are layered with different lengths of lashes (in the same way the Kimberley lashes are) they have a very natural look to them From just looking at the Eylure Girls Aloud lashes I would probably choose the Nadine lashes as a "safe" choice or if I were to buy these as a present for someone. This is because the lashes look long but not overly long and are moderately thick. Therefore perfect for those with longer and shorter lashes and also versatile enough to wear for a variety of occasions. ***Packaging*** The "Nadine" lashes from the Eylure range come in a rectangular shaped cardboard packaging with a clear cut out window. You are able to see the fluttery, black spiky Nadine lashes inside of the packaging. The outer box is black with a pink swirling flowery design on the box, giving a very feminine and pretty outer casing. There is an image of Nadine on the front of the packaging with Nadine's signature also on the front of the box. Each pack contains A pair of lashes- marked left and right One small tube of eyelash glue (enough for 3 wears of the lashes) Application and care instructions The lashes are affixed to a white inner tray inside the box. I personally prefer the more expensive brands of lashes like MAC where the lashes come in a plastic case which allows easy storage after you have worn the lashes and these types of case help the lashes retain shape. A disadvantage of the Eylure tray packaging is that you need to ensure you put the lashes back in the case carefully and ensure you do not squash them otherwise this could change the shape of the lash strip. ***Price*** A pack of Eylure Girls Aloud "Nadine" lashes costs £4.89 in Boots and Superdrug. These lashes are also available online from ASOS (£5.00) and FeelUnique.com for £4.35. As I have mentioned previously this is mid priced for false lashes. This is reasonable value for money as the quality of the lashes is average to above average. A good price for those that want to try false lashes but don't want to opt for the more expensive brands. The lashes from the Girls Aloud range are slightly more expensive than some of the other lashes from the Eylure range which are priced around the £4.00 mark. ***Application*** As I have mentioned applying false lashes takes practice. I have included a full description and tips of how to apply at the bottom of the review for those that have never applied false lashes before. The Nadine lashes come with a very small tub of Eylure eyelash adhesive. When you first open the packaging it is clearly marked which lash is for which eye; the shortest section of lashes is always placed next to the inner eye if you do get the lashes mixed up. The Eylure lash glue has a mini applicator a bit like a cocktail stick which allows you to apply the glue onto the false lash band. After about 10 seconds the glue on the lash goes tacky and this is when you can apply the lash to the eye and hold until it becomes attached to the eyelid. The glue is white but does dry clear. You may need to touch up with eyeliner as this sometimes when dry the glue does have a slight white tint to it. The Eylure attaches the lashes fine and lashes feel reasonably secure. The Nadine lashes are reasonably light therefore do not need a massive amount of glue to attach them but I feel that because of the fullness of the lashes the Eylure was not as effective on these lashes as others in the range (Kimberley and Nicola). Personally I would use a different lash glue (DUO adhesive) as I find that it keeps lashes in a better condition and dries clearer than the Eylure adhesive, securing lashes more effectively. The Eylure adhesive is suitable for contact lens wearers. Removing the Nadine lashes after using the Eylure lash glue is relatively easy however you do have to be very careful to ensure the false lash keeps in shape around the lash band. The Nadine lashes are quite durable however and not as flimsy as some of the other lashes in the Eylure Girls Aloud range. As you carefully peel the lash from the inner corner of the eye the lash should be removed. I find that the Nadine lashes last around 4-5 wears which makes them much better value than some of the other Girls Aloud styles which last only 2 wears. The Nadine lash stays in shape at the lash band as it reasonably thick (due to the fullness of the lashes) and the spiky curve upwards the false lashes have remain and look like you have just curled your eyelashes for a number of wears ***Look*** Once applied the Nadine lashes give a very pretty, feminine look to eyes. My eyelashes looked longer and thicker, in a way which was subtle and did not scream "false lashes". The eyelashes have a very fluttery light look to them due the different lengths and way the false lash is layered. Lashes look longer and there is a consistent spikiness along the lash line created by the longer pieces of false lash combined with the shorter lashes to add fullness. There is a feminine curve upwards towards the outer corners of the lash, creating emphasis on the outer corners of your eye. The overall look is definitely very natural. In terms of rating against the other lashes in the Girls Aloud range, the Nadine lashes are probably at the mid point; more natural looking than the Sarah and Cheryl designs but slightly more dramatic than the Kimberley and Nicola lashes. The look created by the Nadine lashes is natural enough for everyday wear but also suitable for more special occasions and nights out due to the subtle dark fullness the false lash creates. The lash band of the Nadine lashes is reasonably thick due to the false lash being quite full. This means it is slightly visible when applied to the eyelid so creates the effect that you are wearing a light layer of eyeliner on your upper lid. This is not massively noticeable is you are wearing neutral colours on your upper eyelid and not at all noticeable if you have opted to create smoky eyed make up. However if you are trying to create a bare eyed look with minimal make up, the Nadine lashes are probably slightly too heavy around the lash band to create this look. The Nadine lashes are glossy and black and therefore if you are wearing for everyday wear mascara does not need to be added as the lashes create enough impact on their own due to the length and fullness. Even for more special occasions it is a case of personal preference if mascara should be added; personally I would to create slightly more definition as for going out I do wear smokier dark eye make up. However as the lashes are black and glossy, the spiky layered texture creates quite a dramatic effect on its own without added mascara. ***Overall*** The Nadine lashes are great for those with mid to longer lashes for creating a natural yet full flirty lash look and great for those with shorter lashes and smaller eyes that want a dramatic look but find the "Cheryl" lashes too dramatic. The Nadine lashes are definitely the "safe" option if you were purchasing as a present as they are subtle enough for everyday wear to create natural looking lashes due to the textured flirty longer lashes , but because of the added fullness and dark spiky black texture, create fuller looking lashes with a dramatic impact especially if a light coat of mascara is added. The Nadine lashes have a great curve upwards and draw attention to the outer corner of the eyes giving a pretty flirty feminine look. The Nadine lashes are easy to apply and are durable so last around 4-5 wears with proper care, therefore are very good value for money. The only real downside for me personally is because these are a "best of both worlds" solution they do not add as much length as I prefer. I would opt for the Kimberley lashes as these are slightly longer and more suited to my preferences for a false lash. However the Nadine lashes are definitely one of the better styles from the Girls Aloud range adding both length and fullness to your own natural lashes. A great false lash which creates a versatile look, and would appeal to a mass audience. Durable, easy to apply and good value for money. A definite recommendation to try! ***How to apply false lashes*** Step 1- First of all if you have not applied false lashes before, give yourself an additional 20 minutes to get ready and get used to applying the false lashes. As this is quite a fiddly task you need to take your time. If you are under pressure to get ready for a time, if you do not leave extra time and the lash doesn't go on first time, you are likely to get yourself flustered. This only makes applying the lash more difficult!! Step 2- Apply eye make up to you eyes, with the exception of mascara. It is advisable to apply a line of black eyeliner to your upper lid. This is because if you do not apply the false lash close enough to your natural lashes the eyeliner will hide the "gap" in between and it creates a more natural look Step 3- Most false lash strips are about 25mm long but do vary. Put this up against your eye and check that this fits your eye. If this is too long trim the lash strip with scissors so it is a suitable size for your eye. Always trim from the inner corners of the lash strip (the length of the lashes on the inner corners will be shorter) Step 4- Before you apply the lashes set out the right and the left lash strip. You can tell which lash strip is for which eye as the shortest lashes on the lash strip will be applied to the inner corners of each eye. Step 5- Check the instructions of the lash adhesive you are using to see how long it takes to dry. This will vary depending on the adhesive. (No matter what false lashes you are using I would always recommend DUO lash adhesive) Apply a thin amount to the top of the lash strip. Leave so the adhesive goes tacky and sticks to the upper lid easily and immediately. If the glue is too wet the lash will not stick immediately and the lash will slide around on the eyelid. Step 6- Once the glue is tacky hold the inner edge of the lash with a pair of tweezers and press the lash strip down as close to your natural lash line as possible. If possible try not to stick to your own natural eyelashes as the false lash strip will not sit right and will feel quite uncomfortable. Step 7- Once the false lash strip is applied to the eye use two cotton bud to hold the strip onto the lash line. Hold onto the lash and apply a small amount of pressure for around 30 seconds. This ensures the lash is fully affixed to your upper lid and it should be nice and secure. Step 8- Repeat above steps to apply lash strip to your other eye. Step 9- Touch up and apply more glue using a cotton bud if necessary to the inner and outer corners of the false lash if they do not feel secure. Step 10- Apply mascara to your own lashes and the false lashes if necessary. This should blend your lashes together and give a fluttery natural look. Depending on the look you want to achieve will depend on the amount of mascara you apply to your lashes. Therefore if you want a dramatic look, I would recommend a thicker coat of mascara, for a more natural look, a touch of mascara will suffice. ~~~Also posted on ciao 2011~~~~

              Eylure Girls Aloud Lashes - Nadine

              Yay. Dooyoo accepted another one of my suggestions which I suggested AGES ago. But anyway now I can finally finish all of my false eyelash reviews. For people who dont know, I got all of the Girls Aloud eyelashes in a box set for Christmas. To see my whole review on that: http://members.dooyoo.co.uk/beauty-misc/eylure-girls-aloud-lashes-gift-set/ click that link =] What Attracted Me To These Lashes? Basically a recommendation attracted me to these lashes. My friends are all like me and are big false lash addicts so when a few of them starting talking about this particular pair I knew they must be good to warrant all the great things people were saying about them. When I saw the lashes I knew I wanted to try them because they looked so nice in the packaging and looked like they would really suit my eyes and look good on a night out. Eylure & Girls Aloud: The Eylure brand has been around for a number of years now and is regarded by many people as the top brand for fake eyelashes. Their lashes always vary in style & colour and some are pretty outrageous. The Girls Aloud eyelashes haven't actually been available for that long, they probably came out earlier this year but from people's reactions and the reputation the girls lashes seem to be very popular. Every girl from the band is said to have designed their lashes themselves (although I don't believe they really did) and they are based on the lashes of that girl. For this review though I will be concentrating on Kimberly's contribution. Application: I know a lot of people who are put off wearing false lashes because they think they are hard to apply, but all you need is practice. I was hopeless at applying them at first but the beauty of these is you can apply them over and over again whilst you practice and they wont look worn. A lot of people like to this part using tweezers but I just use my thumb and forefinger. 1. These particular falsies are clearly marked up Left & Right so even a silly beggar like me knows which one is which. 2. If the lash is wider than your eye, trim one side of it lash by lash. I find with these lashes they are actually too small for my eyes but it may be different for you. 3. Squeeze eyelash glue onto the back of your hand and run the eyelash along it. Not the whole of the eyelash just the part that will be stuck to your eye :) 4. Pick the lashes up with your thumb and forefinger (or tweezers) and bring it as close to your natural lash line as possible. 5. Press from end to end and hold until the glue dries. I find this usually doesnt take more than 30 seconds. 6. Apply mascara while pressing your finger behind the fake lashes. This helps to blend your natural lashes and also the false ones so you achieve a more natural look overall. 7.Fill any gaps between the false lashes and your natural lash line with eyeliner. This does sound quite difficult but honestly in this case practice does make perfect so stick with it. Whats In This Pack?: Obviously two false eyelashes clearly labelled left & right 1 small bottle of false eyelash glue ** DONT WORRY THIS GLUE IS A BRIGHT WHITE BUT IT DOES DRY CLEAR!!** Instructions which come in a wide range of languages. So on to the most important part...... What Do They Look Like?: These lashes again are a lot like the Cheryl lashes in design and they have the same spiky edged style and the thickness and volume that I was looking for. They start off small and spiky at the corner of your eye and then fan out into quite a big spike at the end. The look quite long in the box but I don't think they look quite so long when you actually apply them, but in my opinion that is a good thing. They look really dark and black so full of volume which is perfect for a smokey eyed look on a night out. Nadine describes these lashes as "Full & Layered With A Really Natural Feel" & "Fun & Flirty." I don't think any lashes really feel natural but I do agree with the rest of the statement they do look really full and they have loads of volume, perfect for me. Are They Comfortable: As with the rest of the range I found these really comfortable. I always forget Im wearing lashes when Im wearing any of the pairs from this range so yes I would say they are really comfortable. Overall Opinion: These falsies really add a bit more definition to your eyes and gives us that length and volume we crave well for a few hours anyway. These are a lot like Cheryl lashes but they are slightly more demure so if you don't want the full on glamour of Cheryl's these are a really nice substitute if you don't want to go really over the top. I will certainly be using these lashes again. I recommend that others do to :) Thanks For Reading x-0 Salz 0-x
