Elegant Lashes #001 Black False Eyelash Review (Red Cherry Ain’t Got Nothin’ on These!)

Say hello the one of the most popular styles in our humongous collection – the #001 Black Human Hair False Eyelash!

This is one of those classic shapes that everyone loves and everyone wants to get a hold of.

Unfortunately for me, it took forever for my tiny little eyes to work their way up to the point where they actually looked good wearing the #001 Blacks (I wore #001 Browns when I felt daring because it was simply too much for me to wear #001 Black). Thankfully, that’s changed. Whoo!

The #001 Black lashes are part of our Medium Density-Short category, but at this point we all know that what Elegant Lashes calls “short” is not exactly short by other people’s standards. Still, I have an affinity for spiky lashes and I want to be cool like everyone else rocking the #001’s (in Black), so I worked my way up there.  =)

The Elegant Lashes® #001 Black false eyelashes provide just the right amount of flirty volume – not too sparse and not so thick as to make your lids look and feel heavy. This is a beautiful glamorous length, the thin, wispy spikes are pure precision and perfection, and the 100% Natural Human Hairs are so, so soft and luscious.

I had to work extra hard to do these lashes justice by taking cool photos. I think I did all right, so here’s another shot:

Do you not see how perfectly and beautifully separated these lashes are?!!? They are so glamorous and befitting for an elegant evening look. (Granted I’m not wearing elegant evening attire in the photos, but that is beside the point.)

And because people love before & after photos, here’s our first-ever false eyelash before & after photo, featuring the amazing #001 Black false eyelashes from Elegant Lashes:

Call me biased, but I think this photo is irrefutable evidence that falsies give the eyes 1,000,000x more appeal and opens them up like no other makeup can. Even with no eye shadow on the upper lid, the #001 Black false lashes make my eyes appear instantly more open and alluring. And that shape, with those flirty spikes… pure perfection.

Red Cherry what??

If you think the #001 Black lashes look familiar, it’s probably because you’ve either seen or used Red Cherry’s version, which is called Red Cherry #1. Here, take a gander and compare the similarities:

The Elegant Lashes #001’s and Red Cherry #1’s have similar names, look identical in shape, and both are made of 100% Human Hair, but one is far superior than the other. (See photo for the winner.)

So what’s the difference?

One word: QUALITY.

Quality makes a HUGE difference in the look and longevity of false lashes, and I’m not just talking about material.

Red Cherry lashes are made of 100% Human Hair (the best material), but there is always a consistent look of haphazardness that just… annoys the !@#$% out of me every time I see a pair of them.

What’s worse is that despite how long Red Cherry has been making lashes out of human hair, the craftsmanship never seems to improve, so the lashes look sub-par. Which means the people who wear them look… well, not sub-par … but they’d be a lot happier (and yes, look better) if they used better quality lashes.

Now THIS is what I call a beautifully made, high-quality lash.

Let me put it this way:

If I paid you for professional makeup services and if you came at me with a pair of Red Cherry lashes, I would be sad. Most people may not know the difference, but I grew up thinking the precision and quality of Elegant Lashes was the norm, so I can tell right away when something is of lower quality. And to be completely honest, with Red Cherry lashes, the difference in quality is blatantly obvious.


In conclusion…

The Elegant Lashes #001 Black is an awesome, bomb-diggity style that is kind of essential for those evenings when you want/need to look glamorous. And the quality will blow you away.

  1. I am a big fan of elegant lashes. always looking for good quality lashes but not expensive . for me, this eyelashes good for night time too .

  2. These lashes are for my dance performances and still seem to be able to be saved and re-used over several events so I love it.

    1. That’s what high-quality lashes can do for ya! I’m going on 6 uses for my #001 Blacks. Gotta see how far I can go with this particular pair. X)

  3. hi sunny ! love your blog 😉 i was wondering could you please advise me which type of elegant lashes that will suit my small chinese eyes ?? i’ve tried some model of lashes, but i don’t think they really suit my eyes… >___< u're very lucky to have big round eyes ! :))

    thanks and cheers !

    1. Hey Audrey!
      Gaaah general recommendations are hard to give because different people can pull off different styles. I’ve seen plenty of girls who are half my size wear bigger lashes than I would ever dare to wear… and they look completely normal and beautiful. *Inferiority complex creeps in*

      As a general rule, I always stick to the Medium-Extra Short category (or Medium-Short if I feel daring.) Links here:

      The criss-crossed styles in the Mystic Lashes category are also great since they tend to be shorter than most “Short” lashes in our Human Hair categories. (So far we’ve reviewed M520 and M030. You can search for those posts in this blog simply by typing in the style number in the Search box. )

      It takes lots of experimenting to find your “holy grail” lash, but it’s fun to try out different styles while you’re at it. Let me know how it goes for you!

    1. Haha! Aww, Margaret, I’m sorry but we’re not going to get pre-glue lashes. They don’t seem like the most sanitary option and we want our customer to get as much use out of their lashes as possible. Try applying lashes with both elbows on the table, looking down into a mirror. lash application for shaky handsRead these tips and more on my post, How to Apply False Eyelashes – 5 Tips You Wish Someone Had Told You.

      You can also try using our new Trio Flares. Customers swear they’re easier to apply than strip lashes and regular individual lashes. Win Win!!

      1. Hi Bonnie, thanks for the update on pre-glueing. Got any tips on removing the glue-what to use how to use, etc? Checked the WWW and tried them all so far its been tedious and I destroy more lashes than I want with the shaky hands and all. :^)

        1. Definitely! Check out our post on how to remove false eyelashes painlessly. Not only will you prevent lash loss, you’ll prevent premature sagging and wrinkles around the eye area.
