Elegant Lashes #561 False Eyelashes Are Split Personality Troublemakers

Sunny Lee wearing Elegant Lashes 561xx Premium False Eyelashes

So, this just happened.

Sunny went from a sweet, innocent girl to a bold, ferocious Lee Hyori look-alike . And that kind of split personality is exactly what our #561 Black lashes are all about.

Some people don’t like gradation (increase in thickness and/or length toward the outer corner) on their lashes, but Sunny seems to be a fan of this lash with both a sweet and edgy side. “Business in the front, party in the back.” Haha

Look how tough and scawy (and cool!) Sunny looks. It’s like those lashes have a mind of their own. O.o

Those of you with larger eyes will love this lash because the lash band is noticeably longer than most of our Light Density-Short Length lashes. And if you love a little length with an extra dose of drama on the ends, then this is definitely your style.

Another closeup of Sunny’s eyeball. Notice how the false lashes extend beyond Sunny’s eyes, elongating them. (Note: If you find that these lashes are too wide for you, you can always trim the eyelash to fit your eyes better.)

Notice again how the outer end of the lashes extends beyond the length of Sunny’s eyes, even when the lashes are applied fairly close to her tear ducts. If you have smaller eyes, these lashes will definitely be too long for you, but if you have larger eyes or desire an elongated look, our #561 lashes may just be your perfect match.

Let me know what you think about these lashes in the comments below! Sunny says she likes the longer hairs but ended up trimming the inner corners to make the band shorter. Now she wears these whenever she goes out. 😛

 

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!

Shyne Sunny wearing Elegant Lashes #001 Black Human Hair false eyelashes

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!

Elegant Lashes #001 Black Human Hair False Eyelashes

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:

false eyelashes before and after - Elegant Lashes #001 Black Human Hair False Eyelashes

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:

Elegant Lashes #001 vs. Red Cherry #1 lashes comparison dupe
Red Cherry images from kkcenterhk.com and buyeyelashes.co.uk

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.

The Ultra-Wispy Barely-There #082A Black False Eyelash

shyne sunny natural looking human hair false eyelashes

What’s that in my hand?

It’s the thinnest, lightest (density) Human Hair false eyelash of our 500-style selection.

What exactly is the purpose of a pair of false eyelashes that are so light and wispy that they don’t add any noticeable amount of volume to your lashes?

Beats me. Those were my thoughts every time I saw the 082A lashes. Just look at this eyelash:

Elegant Lashes 082A Black Human Hair False Eyelash

There’s practically nothing there!

 

The Doubts:

The Elegant Lashes® #082A Black False Eyelash is super light-density, the hairs are thin almost to the point of being anorexic, and it looks like it’s only good for adding length, not volume. In my eyes, it’s not much of a stud, but maybe that’s because I’m partial to volume.

Although #082 and #082A are both very popular styles (especially for brides and natural looks) I stayed away from it because:

a)      The length seems way too long for me. (I feel uncomfortable and self-conscious with too-long lashes.)

b)      Like I said, I covet volume more than length, and from the looks of it, the #082A lash isn’t going to give me much volume.

However, I must say the #082A lash has its merits…

 

The Good:

False lashes with chromosome-shaped (?) knots are actually more natural-looking than the traditional knotted bands. In fact, they are virtually undetectable. So the #082A lash will definitely work for the I’m-not-wearing-fake-lashes effect. Case in point:

super natural real looking falsee eyelashes

Yeah, you know you’re impressed. It looks like I got some mad skilled aesthetician to do eyelash extensions on me, because those hairs look like they’re sprouting straight from my eyelids, not something I plucked off of a plastic tray and stuck onto my eyes.

 

Length:

Although this is in our Light-Short category, it looks pretty long to me in the packaging. (Maybe not to you, but for my tiny little stubby lashes, the #082A lashes are long.)

Elegant Lashes human hair false eyelashes in packagingI must be getting better at wearing bigger and longer falsies, though. Nothing else explains how I’m able to pull off a lash of this length and not look ridiculous.

I thought for sure the #082A lashes would be way too long, but I wore them for the first time to a trade show with very minimal makeup, and they looked pretty great.

Side view of lashes. Neat, right? It’s not too curled, and the hairs (100% Natural Human Hair, of course) are also very soft and pliable. So is the band, which allows for easy application to any eye shape.

What did I say about natural-looking length? These fake eyelashes don’t look so fake, now, do they?

Somehow the #082A lash enhances the eyes despite a serious lack in density/volume. (Whaaat? How?) In addition, for some reason, the length doesn’t look unrealistically long when worn, and because the hairs are so few and far between, they look like my actual, real lashes (but better, of course). Funny how things work out that way.

The #082A eyelash isn’t so pointless after all…

Here’s a photo submitted by pro makeup artist Thi Liu of a bride wearing #082A Black False Eyelashes on her wedding day. =)

Wedding bridal makeup, natural looking human hair false eyelashes

Like I said, #082 and #082A lashes are popular for bridal makeup, but I’ve only very recently started to understand why makeup artists would choose to apply the super light-looking #082A lashes on a bride. It just looks believable…

By the way….

If you like the general shape of the #082A False Eyelashes but want more volume, check out this lash dupe post on its more va-va-voom twin, the #082 Black False Eyelash. You’ll be surprised to know that the Elegant Lashes #082 Black False Eyelash is almost an EXACT dupe for Ardell 105 lashes. I’m not kidding you – the similarities are uncanny. And I’ve got the photos to prove it.

 

Concluding thoughts:

The length is nothing to be intimidated by, and the lack of volume is not something to scoff at.

Despite looking too long in the packaging, the #082A False Eyelash is quite a wearable and believable length, and I don’t miss the volume a bit. I’ll give credit where credit is due: the thing that most surprised me about this lash it that is looks so dang real when worn. (Again, look at the photo of the lashes with my eye closed. That’s scary real-looking.)

Trying to look cool/artsy with the eyelash. I tried hard.

Final verdict:
The #082A Black False Eyelash is not pointless. It’s perfect.

 

Lessons I Learned from Elegant Lashes #067 (A Painfully Honest Product Review)

Elegant Lashes #067 Black False Eyelash Product Review

Today I’ll be introducing and reviewing a lash style which I thought was very ugly.

Yes, you read that right.

There are some styles that we carry which I have absolutely no interest in. But I am intrigued whenever I find those certain “unappealing” styles flying off the shelves like there’s no tomorrow. And then I get curious…about people’s tastes. Just kidding! ;P

Here’s the style I’m talking about:

Elegant Lashes #067 Black False Eyelash

“Dude, what’s so bad about that??” you ask.

There’s nothing wrong with it, of course! It’s just totally not something I’d go for. Why? Because those stick-straight edges on the sides give the whole lash a very harshly geometric, trapezoidal look that really, really annoys me. (I cannot explain this, and don’t try to understand; it is just one of my peculiarities.) I prefer the more “balanced,” rounded edges of the #006 and #012 lashes, which are the same in general style and density but don’t have that irksome sharp/straight edge.

Elegant Lashes #006 Black False Eyelash  Elegant Lashes #012 Black False Eyelash

(Note: I have tried neither the #006 lashes nor the #012 lashes, so I essentially have no right to say which one is better. Nonetheless, I prefer the general shape of those two over the shape of the #067 lashes.)

Elegant Lashes #067 Black False Eyelash Product Review

Well… at least the #067 false lashes are curled really nicely. Like, really curled… nicely. Dang, look at those curves.

 

o_O

 

Anyway, the last time I tried something because everyone else was doing it, I was pleasantly surprised and raved about my experience not once, but twice: here and here.

So I tried the Elegant Lashes #067 Black false lashes, just to see how (bad) it would look.

bridal makeup natural looking false eyelashes Elegant Lashes #067 Black False Eyelash Product Review

Ohhhhh, man. Oh, how I was humbled. I remember just standing in front of the mirror staring at my eye for a good minute or two. Because this is NOT what I was expecting.

Question: When you’re proven horribly wrong and end up liking something you were set on hating, are you supposed to feel happy or angry? Because I sure didn’t know what to do with myself.

bridal makeup natural looking false eyelashes Elegant Lashes #067 Black False Eyelash Product Review

Remember those super-straight edges that were the main reason for my disdain of this style? As soon as I saw what the lashes looked like when worn, they totally made sense. They made total, complete sense.

bridal makeup natural looking false eyelashes Elegant Lashes #067 Black False Eyelash Product Review

And believe me when I say that I was greatly, greatly humbled.

The full and generous width of the lash, extending from inner to outer corner without poking my inner eye, is just what I like in a pair of falsies, and I sure did not expect to get that (or anything positive, for that matter) from the #067 falsies.

And yes, evidently Elegant Lashes #067 Black looks awesome in photos. I would never think to wear this kind of eyelash, but I do admit they look great in these pictures. Maybe this is why it’s good for bridal makeup/weddings, a.k.a., the most photographed day of a woman’s life? Hmm….

 

Let’s talk about length:

Elegant Lashes #067 Black human hair False Eyelash Product Review

Elegant Lashes® #067 is part of our Light-Short category, but of course our definition of “short” is not your definition of “short.” (Hey, take a look at our Long category, and then try to tell me you still think these false lashes are long.) Look at that photo above – you can see how my natural lashes (yes, those stunted hairy things) compare to the length of these #067 lashes.

Perhaps these lashes are more for those who want more length than volume from their falsies while still keeping it all low-key. I personally prefer shorter lashes with more hairy goodness (I usually grab from the Medium-Extra Short or Medium-Short categories), but I see the appeal of these. More length with fewer hairs looks softer and more romantic… I think. At least, that’s the feeling I got when I looked at my photos wearing these lashes.

 

And let’s talk about that curl…

Man, these lashes are so curled, I can sometimes feel them brushing my eyelid. Whether that’s a good or bad thing is up to personal preference: some people like curled falsies, others like straight ones.

I, however, think it’s pretty cool that these particular lashes are so darn curly (kinda like the way our #824 lashes are darn curly). It means they’ll always look perky and sit high (not sagging or drooping down), making your eyes look open and wide. And if you think about it, isn’t that why most people wear falsies? 

 

bridal makeup natural looking false eyelashes Elegant Lashes #067 Black human hair False Eyelash Product Review

I’ll be the first admit that the #067 Black false lashes look pretty good here. And I just realized something: where the heck is the lash band? Even I am impressed by how natural-looking and undetectable the lash band is. (Seriously, I didn’t edit it out. So where is it?) Hidden among the jungle of my mini lashes, I presume.

 

product review Elegant Lashes #067 Black 100% Human Hair False Eyelashes

Final thoughts on Elegant Lashes® #067 Black False Eyelash:

The #067 lash is a heck of a lot nicer-looking than I thought it would be (I would even dare to call it beautiful) and looks a darn lot nicer worn than sitting in the packaging. To all those people whose tastes I questioned for purchasing this style, I’m sorry – you guys know how to choose good-looking lashes and are far less judgmental than I am!

Lesson learned: you’ll never know if you (really) hate it until you try it.

So! Give these under-appreciated (by me) #067 lashes a try. If you’re anything like me, you may be very, very pleasantly surprised.

In the next post, I’ll review and share a lash style that I thought was pretty pointless. (Mind you, I did not say “unpopular” or “ugly,” because the style IS one of our best-sellers among bridal makeup artists, and I acknowledge that it does have a pretty shape. I just considered it completely and utterly pointless … until I tried it.)
