I recently received false eyelashes to review on my blog from KKCenterHK . Not only do they sell different brands of falsies, they sell other things from makeup to shoes. The company is located in Hong Kong, but the delivery time is pretty decent. I received my package in a week and a half... hehe~
The PR gave me the opportunity to choose the falsies I would like to try. I wear falsies during special occasion, but it's really seldom... hehe~ The only reason I hardly wear them is because they're uncomfortable. :X Being a newbie in this area, I researched before I choose the falsies I would like. I noticed Princess Lee falsies got good review which interest my curiosity... hehe~
My thoughts: When I was given a chance to review falsies on my blog, I was really excited! I keep hearing about Asian brand falsies and it intrigued my curiosity. The only falsies I have tried are American brand, Ardell, and Korean brand, Darkness (I know these are Asian brands... hehe~). They are both on the thick side when it comes to the band. When I received the Princess Lee, the first thing I noticed is the band and how thin they are!!!
Here's a picture of the Princess Lee versus Darkness; both Asia brands. Do you notice the thickness of the bands? Another thing I noticed about the thickness of the band is that it relates to the stability of the lashes. Princess Lee is more sensitive and flexible. Darkness, on the other hand, is sturdy and already shaped.
Now I was curious, how it would feel on my eyes... hehe~
I grabbed one of the falsies and had to cut on the ends to the shape of my eyes. Luckily for me, I only needed to cut the part with no lashes... hehe~ The band felt like I was cutting a string. You know how you cut a string and the ends kind of flatter off or am I making no sense... lol~ :X Anyways, it felt like I was cutting a string... hehe~
After cutting the ends, I grabbed the ends with two fingers of each hand and shaped it to an eye shape... hehe~ This is how it looked after I shaped it.
I used the eyelash glue they sent me. I will review this at the end... hehe~ I waited 30 seconds for it to dry before applying the falsies on my eyes.
Here's how it looks on my eyes... It looks very natural in my opinion... hehe~ Princess Lee falsies are good for daily wear. It gave me more lashes than I naturally have... hehe~ Here's how the falsies look when you look from the top. Side-view of the falsies.
After trying these falsies, now I can see why people like Asian brand falsies. The thinness of the band makes it extremely comfortable to the eyes. It's easily bendable to fit to your eyes, as well as, it looks very natural. I highly recommend these bands. Just be careful how you handle the lashes or else you cannot re-use them again... hehe~ ;)
Pros: * Princess Lee; a well known brand in Taiwan. * 100% handmade. * Thin band. * Flexible lashes. * Easily fit to your eye shape. * Looks natural. * Gives you more lashes than you have. * Very comfortable.
Cons: * The lashes are not sturdy.
Would I repurchase: Yes. Rating: 4.5/5 Tobey's Paws
Where can you purchase this:KKCenterHK Price: $8.30
Made in Japan
Ingredients: My thoughts: When I first received the package, I was kind of hoping for the black eyelash glue other blogs gotten when they review the falsies. I've always wanted to try dark eyelash glue... hehe~ Oh well, I was still happy to receive an eyelash glue... wheee~ :) I wasn't too sure what to think of the glue since most glues I own are in tube. The eyelash glue comes with a thin brush. It kind of feels like you're painting your nails, but you're not... lol~ You're painting the band of your falsies with the brush. I wasn't too sure what to think of it it since I have never tried a brush. After trying the glue, I had mixed feelings... hehe~ The good is that it's very easy to use. You just brush the glue onto the band as much as you can. You have full control of how much glue you put on the falsies.... wheee~ When you use a tube, you don't know how much glue you will squeeze out of the tube. With the brush, you have full control. Another good thing is, you don't get your fingers dirty. Without knowing how much you squeeze out of the tube, sometimes you have to use your fingers to clean up the mess if you squeeze too much.
The bad thing about using the brush is that you put the brush back into the container. You're kind of squeezing air into the container when you put it back. PLEASE don't pump up and down which is a big NO NO... hehe~ If the falsies are new, then you don't have to worry about bacteria. If the falsies are being re-used and you still cleaned it, I get scared there might still be some bacteria... lol~ :X With the tube, you don't have to worry about this... hehe~
Pros: * Comes in two colors, black and white. * Comes with a brush. * Full control of the glue on the band. * Easy to use. * Fingers don't get dirty.
Cons: * Put the brush back into the container. * Pump air into the container. * Can get bacteria inside the container.
Would I repurchase: I'm not too sure... hehe~ Rating: 4/5 Tobey's Paws
