Confession time. My name is Gemma and I am an eyelash addict. Dramatic I know but my love for false lashes certainly seems to surpass that of any regular girl and is becoming a bit of an issue for my bank balance. They’re my item. You know, that one beauty item that you would opt for above all others if some cruel individual (probably a boy who was clueless about beauty) made you pick only one thing to have for the rest of your life. It would be a close call between falsies and a favourite lipstick but I think a pair of eyelashes would definitely win.
I know they’re not for everyone and they can look a little fake at times but I think they’re perfect for accentuating your eyes and really making them stand out. My eyes are quite small and just a regular old boring brown colour so I really rely on a good pair of strip lashes to define them. I’ve worn them for so long that I just don’t feel like me without them. I don’t feel fully dressed if that makes sense? Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t wear them every day but I wouldn’t be seen without them on a night out or at a special occasion. In fact, I think I’d rather stay in than go out with just my natural lashes. Oh goodness, I’m sounding like such an Essex girl right now but what can I say? It’s the truth...
Okay so enough of me declaring my love, I wanted to share with you all my latest fake lash buy which has had me all a flutter. The Ardell 117 artifical eyelashes are my current go-to choice for when I want a natural yet full set of lashes. They definite the eyes without being too dramatic and definitely guarantee the ‘are they or aren’t they real?’ reaction. I find them really easy to apply and they blend in perfectly with my natural lashes.
What I love the most about all Ardell lashes is that they feel so light on your eyes. I often forget that I’m wearing them because unlike some strip lashes, you just can’t feel them. This pair come with a handy little carry case so you can store them somewhere safe and reuse them again and again! How thrifty! I’d definitely suggest you give these a go if you’re just getting into false eyelashes as they’re pretty much foolproof. Experienced lash wearers, you also need the Ardell 117s in your lash collection. But if you’re an obsessive like me, I don’t need to tell you that do I?
