If you are out of the loop like I was, e.l.f. (stands for "Eyes Lips Face") is a cosmetics line that sells products at $1, $3 and $5 price points. I recently boasted about my love for this $3 e.l.f. eye shadow brush, and since I had such a strong love connection with the brush, I decided to test out their falsies.
I mean, I had nothing to lose since they were only $1. I didn't have high expectations because you just never know, so I tried them randomly recently just for kicks and guess what?? Mamma likey!! This is the exact kit I used:
|The lashes are REUSABLE. The set includes: Contour tray, lashes and a tube of lash adhesive gel|
I only wear falsies for special events and until a few years ago, I didn't know how to apply them myself so I only wore them when I got my make-up done at MAC (only place that does my make-up how I like). So here I am in MAC lashes, which used to be my fave:
My friend taught me a trick, which has completely simplified the fake eye lash application process. They are fairly easy to apply once you know what you are doing. I'll do a step-by-step tutorial on applying lashes using the trick IF I can figure out how to properly describe it. We'll see, so don't get your hopes up.
HOWEVER, if I'm "keepin' it real" as my girl Raven says...
I do have one complaint about the e.l.f. lashes and I don't know if I was having a blonde moment, but I could not get ANY glue to come out of the tube that came with the kit. I had eye lash glue on hand from Sally's, so I just used that. Maybe I just got a faulty tube? Anyway, the glue I use is Adell LashGrip Adhesive for Strip Lashes in dark (dries clear).
