High End vs High Street | False Eyelashes

7 comments

Today I want to talk about a product I've never really talked about on here before, false eyelashes. In the past I've worn them occasionally on special occasions or on a night out, but I've never really been a massive lover of false lashes, I was a mascara girl through and through (notice the word 'was'). My best friend, Jazz is obsessed with false lashes and wears them everyday, I just never really got it. A few weeks ago I got an email asking me if I would like to choose two sets from falselashes.co.uk. I was sceptical at first because I wasn't a massive false lash fan, until I ventured onto the site. I've never seen so many gorgeous lashes from so many different brands! Falselashes.co.uk carry over 1000 styles from brands such as Eylure, Ardell, Eye Candy, House Of Lashes, Red Cherry and tons more, they have all the brands you could think of!
As I was a bit new to the whole lash thing, I thought I would choose one high street brand I had tried and heard of before, Eylure and one high end brand, House Of Lashes. This way I would be able to get a real feel for the whole false lash thang!
Eylure Enchanted Lashes in Forever
House Of Lashes Sweet Romance False Eyelashes
I chose the Eylure Enchanted Lashes in Forever. I love lashes that are longer on the outside, I think they're so flattering and girly. The Forever lashes are gorgeously bold and full for a fluttering enchanted look. These lashes come with a little adhesive and easy to follow instructions. This was so helpful for me because I don't use these on a regular basis so any tips are well appreciated! I followed the steps and cut my lashes to fit my eye and applied the glue, I found these pretty easy to apply, a tad fiddly but that's to be expected! Once I got my lashes on I loved the full romantic look! I love how easy it is to get perfect lashes and there's no mess like there can be with mascara!
I wore these all day and they stayed put through shopping, cleaning and the windy English weather! As I'm a false lash newby I did feel like I could feel the presence of the lashes most of the time, but not in a painful or uncomfortable way. I think I just needed to get used to them. I loved having gorgeous lashes all day long. The Eylure Enchanted Lashes in Forever are perfect for so many different occasions, they're bold and full making them perfect for a night out and dinners, but they're also a little shorter than most making them perfect for everyday glam too. After wearing these all day I was quickly turning into a false lash girl! I now want to wear these just to clean the dishes!

The next day I wanted to give my House Of Lashes Sweet Romance Lashes a go. The Sweet Romance Lashes are handmade from 100% human hair. They're curled and long for a romantic and sophisticated full lash effect. Of course I couldn't ignore how gorgeous and cute these lashes are and of course the packaging, but I was disappointing that they didn't come with glue and instructions. I think this is great for the lash fanatic who is used to applying and has stacks of lash adhesive, but not so great for the lash novice. Luckily I could use the Eylure adhesive and followed these steps. I found these pretty easy to apply and the shape of these make them perfect for every eye shape. I could hardly feel these on my lids, they're very comfortable! They just felt so weightless and natural and I did love forgetting I even had them on but knowing my lashes looked gorgeous! These are the perfect lashes if you want long fluttering lashes with a natural feel and finish. They stayed put all day and were easy to take off.

Overall I can safely say I am now a self confessed false lashes convert! I'm totally into false lashes now and I want to try different brands and different styles! I can see myself wearing these on a regular bases. Overall I think I was most impressed by the Eylure Enchanted Forever Lashes, just because of the amazing quality for such an affordable price! I would like to try some other styles from House Of Lashes, perhaps more of a bolder look. 
If you're a false lash fanatic or you want to give them ago, I strongly recommend falseeyelashes.co.uk. You will find something for all occasions and price ranges (plus free 1st class delivery!)

What lash brands do I need to try next beauties?

  1. Loved this post Corrie! I used to wear false eyelashes a lot at uni for nights out and I just love the look but I stopped wearing them when I stopped going out as much!! Recently I've been reaching for them for just days out and events and I love them all over again.

    I've only tried Eylure and never anything high end but glad to see you thought they paired up just as good!
