False Eyelashes Bonanza!

Beware, super wordy and picture filled post ahoy!

I was recently contacted by KKCenterHK, an online shop based in Hong Kong, and they asked me if I wanted to try out a couple of their eyelashes. They sell so many eyelashes it's kind of overwhelming how many options you have.

I'm not familiar with most of the brands but I did notice Elise which I've been tempted to try because their manufacturer is the same one that makes Shu Uemura lashes (and you can find the Make Up For Ever counterparts too)

I got the ES A218, M123-A and the M131 which are bottom eyelashes. None of these eyelashes came with eyelash glue.

It took 13 days to get here from Hong Kong, specifically 9 business days which is within the shipping range of 7-14 business days.

I was the most excited for the ES A218 eyelashes because they seemed so economical and gorgeous. They are wispy lashes with a lot of fullness closer to the band and longer strands that flare out. The box had 10 pairs and retails for $8.40.

I will say that I noticed that not all of the lashes in the box were consistent, some were tapered at one end whereas others had an equal gradient.

This one was eh to me; I think it'll be one that's going to be harder to work with if you're a newbie with false eyelashes. It took me two-three tries to get used to the flexible band and it tended to stay straighter.

The packaging is a bit fiddly with how they're glued in the back. The ends of the bands are extended and glued behind onto this glue strip and so I had to be extra careful to pull them off.

I'll demo the eyelashes at the end :D!

The next pair is my favorite. The M123-A fit the best, had a nice thick (but not too thick) band and kept its curve. The thick lash band made them so easy to put on; It took me about 2 seconds flat and adjusting was a breeze. Well worth it at $1.50.

The glue adhering the lashes to the packaging is a bit strong so you do have to be careful with pulling them off but they were amazing.

So I've never worn bottom lashes before so I don't know if it would be fair to review them. Just from initial thoughts alone the lashes themselves are a little too flexible for my taste. These cost 99 cents. Can anyone offer some tips as to application?

Here are the demos of everything :)

For reference, my lashes curled with mascara on them
With the ES A218 lashes
With the M123-A lashes
The TL:DR version is that the ES bulk ones were okay, a bit fiddly unless you're an expert at applying false eyelashes while the M123-A were the best ones. I'm incompetent with bottom lashes so I'm putting off reviewing those until I get the hang of them.

Once I come into some nice discretionary cash, I'm buying all of the M lashes because I just love how nice the lash band is. Some of the brands do sell the lashes separately and in bulk packaging so I'd try the one pair ones first before investing in the bulk.

I will say that there is a language gap so the English on the site isn't 100% correct all the time but you can definitely understand everything.

Disclaimer: KKCenterHK provided me with the lashes for review. I wasn't paid (that'd be nice wouldn't it?) and I'm not compensated in any way.

  2. @Snow0016 One of my favorite youtube gurus Gossmakeupartist said something about how asian eyes look best with false eyelashes at the outer corner so I think that that pair fits the bill!

  3. Oh srsly, would have never thought they'd arrive, but now I'm looking forward to mine as well. Yesterday some lower lashes came in, but I got them on an eBay store for 2 bucks or so, hahahaha. Do you think we'll be getting some other free stuff?

  4. @Anna Crystal I wasn't expecting them to send any more eyelashes when I emailed them but then she mentioned something about sending more for review. It was kind of funny to me because I had said that I was looking forward to buying some lashes!
