YO! I've been meaning to blog about these lovely lashes* I was sent by Lash Unlimited for a week or so now so while I'm waiting for dinner (I can't cook), I thought now was the perfect opportunity.
I stumbled across Lash Unlimited on Twitter. Normally, I don't like to stray from my beloved Eylure falsies because when you know what you're getting and something is consistently good, you kinda seem to stick to it, right?! but then at the same time, you're like OH, there could be something better, why don't I try something new etc etc. Anyway, my curiosity got the better of me when Lash Unlimited offered to send me some of their lashes and I was excited to see how they'd compare.
First of all, I want to mention the price. They're £2.50 a pair, 3 pairs for £6 or 5 pairs for £9. Also, if you spend over £10 you get free postage. SUCH A BARGAIN! I don't normally talk about the cost first because what's the point in a bargain if the product is rubbish, d'you feel me? but I want you to keep it in mind while I'm talking about these beauties.
I actually really like the packaging - sleek, sturdy, compact and simple. The lashes are stuck on to the plastic so you just peel them off, cut to size, pop on a bit of lash glue and they're ready to plonk on your eyelid (not plonk, carefully place unless you leave it until an hour before you're going out like me and have to manically rush your makeup). I find it really handy that they have the number written on the plastic too so you can easily re-order your favourite style through the Lash Unlimited website. It's worth mentioning that the lashes don't come with glue - personally I prefer this because Duo is the only glue that's ever managed to keep my eyelashes in place all night without having to touch up. You can buy Duo here for £4.37 currently, such a bargain and lasts about a year - can't recommend it enough.
Ok, so this is a horrendous photo but I don't have any that aren't blurry that show what the lashes look like on! This pair are #2 - they're very natural. I think you'll agree that they don't even look fake?! The lashes were extremely easy to apply and didn't stretch or fall apart when I removed them from the plastic (Primark lashes, i'm looking at you). They're really well made.
All in all, I would one hundred percent replace my Eylure babies with these. I can't wait to order a million more pairs from Lash Unlimited. I'm thinking about #6 and #9, might just buy all of them.
