Elegant Lashes #028 Brown False Eyelashes (Yay, Product Review!)

Pardon me, blonde Asian coming through.

I just tried a style I thought was a little weird-looking. It’s called #028 Brown and it looks like this:elegant lashes #028 Brown human hair false eyelashes in packaging

I think I’ve said numerous times that I’m a big fan of the spiky style lashes rather than the ones with even lengths. However, this style was a little too chunky-spiky for me, and the spikes were a little too few and far between for my liking.

However…… I will never forget the time we temporarily ran out of the #028 Black for a little while and people were freaking out and yelling at us to bring it back ASAP. Sheesh.

So…  somebody out there must like these chunky spikes.

I never tried it, though, so I couldn’t judge… until like 10 minutes ago, when I found an extra pair of #028 Brown lying around and decided to play with it. Yay!

 

Ok, so how’d it go? Let’s see…

Length:

The #028 Brown False Eyelash is part of our Medium Density-Short category. Surprisingly, this is one of the few lashes where I actually think “short” is a good word to describe the length of this style. Actually, it’s not really short, but it is definitely one of the more wearable lengths of our gigantic collection (although this is all completely subjective). I don’t feel self-conscious at all with this length. It’s a pretty natural and believable length. Good job!

Density:

I feel like #015 and #028 are very similar styles in that both are very short lashes with very defined spikes that are generally on the more dense side, especially for our Medium Density section.  (The #015 lash has more spikes, is slightly shorter in length than the #028 lash, and has a shorter band, which means you never have to trim it to fit your eyes. You’re welcome.) natural looking short brown false eyelashes

I’m wearing a brown pair, so of course the lash isn’t gonna look all crazy dramatic and as defined as a black pair of the exact same style.

Still, I like the amount of thickness in this lash because it’s not overwhelming or heavy-looking. I don’t know what the #028 Black looks like when worn, but I am completely comfortable with the short length and adequate thickness of this particular brown pair of falsies. 😉

Shape:

In the packaging, the #028 lashes look kind of scary because they’re so spiky. The spikes actually remind me of those spiked clubs and round nun-chuck things that Vikings and bridge trolls used… you know, these things:

Seriously, every time I look at a pair of #028 lashes, I am reminded of this.

 

 

 

Remember how I mentioned the chunky spikes are few and far between?

I discovered this actually has an unexpectedly cool effect when worn. Because the spikes are so far between and are cut so close to the lash band, you won’t get a big whopping dose of volume…

… but what you WILL get is an effect that is surprisingly very similar to a super-spiky, super-separated lash like #043 Black or #220 Black/Brown.

See what I mean? Very similar to the effect of wearing  Elegant Lashes #043, #220…. or MAC 7 Lash. (Ha! Didn’t think this would be a lash dupe post, did you? Well, it’s not, but still. Why would you pay $16 for MAC lashes when you can get the same effect and same high quality for soooooooo much less?)

Anyway, that is the #028 Brown false eyelash in a nutshell.

100% Natural Human Hair, flexible and comfortable band, not too long, not too dramatic… definitely not what I thought they would look like when worn. I like ‘em!! 😀

(Bonnie wore them over the weekend and she LOOOOVVES them.)

Try them out here – if I were you, I’d just buy them by the 6-pack since I’ll probably wear them every day and go through them in no time.

Toodles!

*gasp*

No lies. All truth. Now get yourself over to that post.

 

Now that I got that off my chest….

You don’t need to spend tons of money to get great quality lashes, and you definitely don’t need to settle for those disgusting 10-lashes-in-a-box-for-just-a-dollar lashes, either. (I absolutely HATE those things. Hate ‘em with a passion. Why they sell that junk for human use is beyond me. Those things are made for department store mannequins, dang it!)

ebay eyelashes are not for human use
Ebay specializes in fake eyelashes for “people” like me .

If you’ve been itching to get yourself some “high-end” MAC lashes but were wary about dropping $16 for a pair, look no further. (Hint: www.FalseEyelashesSite.com)

The Truth about MAC 1 Lashes

mac 1 lash dupe elegant lashes 066 black false eyelash

Let’s face it: MAC lashes are expensive. They’re beautiful, great quality, and last a long time, but at $16 a pop, they’re expensive. If you’re a pro makeup artist with lots of clients or just an avid false eyelash user, buying MAC lashes all the time just plain doesn’t make sense (or cents. Ha!). And yet, people keep buying and justifying these unnecessary splurges because they just don’t know what I know. And wouldn’t you like to know what I know…. >=)

Thankfully, my kind little heart has decided to share with you all another little insider secret that none of the big companies want you to know:

MAC has been ripping you off.

Let’s say I put my excellent, savings-savvy little brain to work and found an affordable alternative to those beautiful yet expensive MAC lashes you love. And let’s say that this supposed lash dupe wasn’t just another look-alike wannabe, but the ACTUAL, real thing. Let’s say the MAC 1 Lash had an IDENTICAL twin. Well, guess what?

It does.

 

Meet Elegant Lashes #066 Black False Eyelashmac 1 lash elegant lashes #066 black false eyelashes

Now, let’s compare the above false eyelashes with the MAC 1 Lash: mac 1 lash elegant lashes #066 black false eyelashes

… Do you notice any similarities?

Let me help you out: It’s the same darn lash! Exact. Same. Darn. Lash.

How? Why? Because MAC actually uses the exact same manufacturer as Elegant Lashes®.

*insert dramatic pause*

Yeah, that’s right. MAC sells one pair of these lashes for $16 while Elegant Lashes® sells the EXACT SAME MODEL for a whopping 86% less! Ouch. Looks like you’ve been paying a little too much for those MAC lashes, huh?

bodicerippers-shauni.blogspot.com

Now, stop facepalming yourself. I know, I know, it is pretty depressing to think about how you spent $16 dollars on just one eyelash when you could have gotten 9 of the exact same pair for around $20. I know it didn’t help that I actually pointed out that fact just now, either. But cheer up – at least now you know where to get designer-quality lashes at awesome pro discounts! (Hint: www.FalseEyelashesSite.com). Hooray! ^O^

So now that you know MAC’s dirty little secret, you can share this information with your friends (use the buttons below!) and blow them away with your money-saving insider secret.
