False eye lashes are something that are used a lot in our house, my eldest is a professional makeup artist and often wears lashes but applies them to her clients on a daily basis, my youngest daughter wears lashes daily due to her suffering from Trichotillomania, and if I have an occasion to go to, my daughters will pop some lashes on me, so we all wear false lashes.
When I was asked if I would like to try some lashes from the brand Eye Candy, I of course said yes please. I knew immediately that I would ask Lissy (my youngest daughter) to be my guinea pig for this post as she wears lashes on a daily basis and over the years has tried several brands and styles of lashes, she is quite the connoisseur of the lash world and being the most experienced lash wearer in our house, she is perfect.
I was kindly sent 2 different styles of lashes to try out, one being a multi pack and one a single pair of lashes. Lissy has tried out both styles several times now and today I am going to share her thoughts on the lashes.
Eye Candy Double Lash Style 301 - £5.95
The 301 lashes are a double lash style and are ideal for creating a statement look, they are high quality and handmade, they also come with their own adhesive.
Inside the packet there are also instructions of how to apply the lashes as well as the adhesive.
I think these lashes are definitely more suited to an evening out or occasion and Lissy feels the same, she said they feel comfortable to wear and were easy to apply and they stayed in place well for the time she wore them and the band isn't too thick. Lissy prefers a thinner band rather than a thicker one but it's all personal preference.
Lissy said the band on the 301 lashes isn't too thick and with them being such a statement lash, the band wasn't visible and Lissy applies liner over the band anyway, she really does like them and said they are perfect for a night out. Lissy found the lashes easy to store too, she removed all the glue and then placed them back around the moulds in the case until she will wear them again.
Eye Candy Lashes Multipack Style 008 - £18.00
There are 5 pairs of lashes in the 008 multi pack of lashes, these lashes are more of a fluttery/wispy style that fan out at the outer corner, they are suitable for everyday wear, this pack also comes with a small tube of adhesive.
The 008 lashes have a more subtle look than the 301 lashes, these aren't a double lash and are more of a wispy everyday style that fan out at the outer corners. Out of the 2 styles these are Lissy's favourites and she has worn them so much and considering she has, the lashes still look really good after several wears meaning this pack will last her a long time.
Lissy finds the 008 lashes easy to apply and comfortable to wear, she has a part time job whilst on summer holidays from university and sometimes wears the lashes for 12 hours or more per day when she is working and she said that the lashes last well and feel comfortable to wear. Lissy likes that the 008 lashes aren't too dramatic and she said they are nice lash to wear everyday without being too dramatic. The lashes have a really thin band, which Lissy likes and they look really pretty on.
Lissy Wearing The 008 Lashes
Both styles of lashes are really lovely and both look great for different occasions, the 301 double lashes are definitely more of a statement lash and look amazing for a night out but the 008 lashes are pretty and wispy and lovely for every day or for an evening out if you prefer something a little less dramatic.
The 008 lashes work out at just £3.60 per pair and considering the amount of times they can be worn, a pack of 5 will last a long time. Lissy has been wearing hers for the last 8 weeks or so and has pairs she hasn't touched yet so they are definitely a good buy, especially if like Lissy you wear lashes daily or often. The 301 lashes are very affordable too and especially considering they can be worn several times too, both lashes are affordable but look great too, proving you don't have to spend a fortune to have nice lashes, Lissy has some very expensive false lashes but reaches for the Eye Candy ones on a daily basis which says a lot.
If you would like to try the Eye Candy lashes, you can find the style 301 here and the style 008 here on the False Lashes website, both include free first class delivery in the UK.
