Miss Flicklash by Eylure

It isn’t often I am taken by surprise at my findings in Boots. Until I saw Miss Flicklash lashes by Eylure – false lashes with the eyeliner built into the lash. Something I had never contemplated needing, but nevertheless, I felt compelled and intrigued to buy a pair to see how they turned out, plus they were reduced to £2.46 or something like that, so it almost would have been rude not to.

I picked up the lashes in style 107F – a textured set which would give length and a slight bit of fullness to my lashes. From what I can tell, there are 4 different styles in this range, varying from much more natural, to super-full on.

The Flicklashes are easy to apply – you do as you would with regular lashes, expect with these you peel the backing paper off the flick and also apply glue to that. You make sure your falsies are in the right spot, then secure down the flick, which is pretty easy to position – it’s fairly stiff so you won’t end up with wonky wings.

The lash band is quite thick, to give the impression of eyeliner for the flick to continue into. I found I needed to add some black liner into the inner corner of my upper lash-line to make them blend in.

When I first saw these in the shop, I did an internal laugh, thinking it was a bit of a crazy idea – but you know what? I take it all back. What a genius idea for anyone that struggles with liner – it ensures it’s the perfect shape, balance and in the perfect position, and looks really effective. What do you think?

If you like the look of them, have a look at the lash section of your local Boots – you may be able to get them at a clearance price too – or does the fact that they are clearance mean they are getting discontinued? Who knows, but grab them while you can! If not they are available at the Eylure website.

Katy Perry’s Eylure Color Pop Lashes ‘Ka-Boom!’

Katy Perry has had a line of false eyelashes with Eylure for a while now – I am yet to try any of her classic collection, but I have always been impressed with all the Eylure lashes I’ve tried. They’re always a failsafe purchase!

The latest release from the Katy Perry / Eylure camp is the Color Pop Lashes – a range of lashes designed to give you a pop of colour with the volume and intensity of a false lash.

There are three colours in the range – Ka-Boom! (royal blue), Ka-Ching! (peacock green), Ka-Pow! (Purple), and also Ka-Zaaam! – a pack of individual lashes covering all of the colour options.

They look like a set of black false lashes, with another set of coloured lashes, with more sparse hairs, on top – this adds to the fullness of the lash, and means you get the colour coming through without it being too over the top.

Of course, anyone can wear any colour they like – but green and blue will bring out brown toned eyes, and blue and green will enhance blue toned eyes. Just to be a little different, I tried the blue – Ka-Boom!

The lashes themselves are, as always, great quality. They are rather long and fluttery, and according to Eylure, fit all eye shapes. The glue is included, and they are reusable.

As for the colour – is a subtle flash of colour – from a distance, no one would probably know the difference, and up close, it’s rather pretty. FAR nicer than coloured lashes! I think they’d be fab for a night at a club or something similar, especially if you like to play up your eyes. They’d also be great with a full-on smokey eye. Sometimes black lashes can get lost against black shadow, so these are a great way to break it up.

Katy Perry’s Color Pop Lashes are £6.45 per pack from Look Fantastic

Eylure 080 Lashes

Last week, I tweeted that I was after some false eyelashes, available on the high street, that wouldn’t look too fake, but just add a boost to my own natural lashes. I had lots of suggestions back at me – Ardell Wispies seeming to be a favourite… so off I set to Boots. Only the Boots I went to must have had the tiniest selection of false eyelashes I had ever seen, so I popped a pack of Eylure’s lashes in 080 in my basket and hoped for the best.

I had picked these out because they seemed the least densely packed of the few that were on offer. In hindsight, I should have gone by length not density, as these didn’t really fulfil my desire for natural looking lashes!

Although they weren’t as natural looking as I’d have liked for the occasion, I absolutely love them and will definitely be repurchasing. They give the lashes a bit of oomph without looking ridiculous, and were easy to apply. The only down point, which is a pretty major one, was that one of the lashes came unstuck during the night, and stupidly I hadn’t taken the glue out with me, so off they came!

These lashes cost £5.31 at Boots and are currently part of a ‘buy one, get 2nd item half price’ offer.

Have you tried these lashes? What do you think? What would you recommend as a natural but lash-boosting pair of falsies?

Va Va Voom Lashes

Eylure are one of the leading brands of false lashes on the high street – always of high quality, reasonably priced and easy to get hold of. So when one of my lash-loving friends told me about their new double lashes I was rather excited. The idea is is that there are two layers of lashes, at different lengths, almost as if you are wearing two sets of falsies with only one strip band. I bought a set of the ‘205’ (they also do a ‘202’ which are also double, but different to these) lashes in Boots for £6.95 which I think is fab considering how much you’d be paying if you bought something like this from the likes of MAC etc. At the moment they are on 3 for 2 at Boots too – even more of a bargain! They come with eyelash glue and are reusable – I’ve already worn mine twice and they still look fab. The strip on them is thick which makes it look like you have fab eyeliner on, and the lashes are really high impact and draw a lot of attention! They are relatively light considering how much lash is there, although you do see them in your eyesight all the time. Hope you enjoy the pics!
