April My Glam bag. Those lashes were far too dramatic for me so I didn't keep them around. When I was at Target the other weekend tho I saw a nice display of Ardell lashes and thought what the heck I'll give them a try.
So I picked up this Starter Kit along with another pair and some Duo lash glue. You'll see my reviews on the Duo and 2nd pair in the next few weeks. The main things I used out of this kit was the lashes (obviously) and the lash clip.?. I'm not sure what the technical term for that is.. Anyway it took quite a few tries to get these right but I did it sorta.
What I should have done before giving this a try is watch some YouTube videos on how to do this without taking forever but I didn't so it took forever. I'm ready for next time tho since I've figured out what I was doing wrong.
I like these much better than I did the All-Belle Princes Leah lashes these are much more my style. They blended very easily with my natural lashes and they actually fit in my eyelash curler! I do think I need to work on cutting them. The first time I put them on I really misjudged how much I needed to cut off and they were quite big!
In the end I don't think I really needed the starter kit since I bought different glue and while I like the little clip thing I think I'd like to get used to just using my fingers to get them on to make things go quicker.
I was wearing these in my OOTD with Anjolee Jewelry post but I picked the brightest time of the day to take those pictures apparently so I was Squinty Mc Squint in them sorry about that! My eyes really do not like the sun, hence why they look all red in this last picture. I wasn't doing any controversial I promise!
I quite like the effect falsies give and I think I'll try to wear them a little more often. Also sad story about this pair of lashes I was going to take them off and sterilize them to wear another day but when I was taking them off one fell down my bathroom sink drain so there was no way I was going to wear it after that even if I cleaned it... lol The next pair I wear I hope to avoid doing that with.
So for my lovely readers that are experienced with falsies do you have any suggestions for me about cutting them down, is it better to cut them shorter and work with it or get it just right?
What do you all think of these do we like them?
