LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these lashes!!!!! I wear false eyelashes 3-4 times a week and these are really a HG! They make my lashes look REALLY full and lush. I used to use the Ardell lashes, which were very good, but not nearly as great as the Sonia Kashuk ones. They are so comfortable to wear and easy to clean. I just wish Target's stock wasn't so hit or miss. It seems like when they are out of stock, it's a couple of weeks before they get more in.
I am a total newbie to false lashes, I just started wearing them last month and I have to say I die for Sonia's Demi lashes. Though I will say my review is probably a tad biased because these are the only ones I've ever tried. HOWEVER, I think that is about to change soon because on my last trip to Target the demi's were on clearance (so I bought the last three) and I can no longer find them on the site.
As far as application I did initially purchase one of those tong like things and found it to be a complete and utter waste of money. I apply all my makeup first, then tilt my head back (like I'm looking down my nose) and apply these as close to my lash line as possible. What I found works best for me is to use a toothpick to apply the glue and wait a few moments for it to get a bit tacky before putting them on, otherwise they slide all over the place.
I get compliments on them all the time and people can't seem to tell if I was just born with fabulous lashes (even my SO of four years had to ask)! They also adhere really well too...after two hours of crying, they never came off (my gram passed).
One final tip to use with any lashes is invest in a " practice" pair to fool with for a couple of evenings before your big lash debut. I can get mine on in about five minutes now :-)
I always, always buy the demi lashes from sonia kashuk! They are so fabulous and look great on anyone! I do not like full lashes so that is why I get the demi ones. They have this criss cross effect and they are just beautiful on! I would highly recommend them! I get mine at Target for about $5! A great deal! I was so bummed the other day I went to get them again and they were sold out :(
Im usually a Red Cherry eyelash freak but these are my new favorite eyelashes! i got the full eyelash, not the half demi ones and i get compliments on them all the time. Purchased at target for 4.99 and by the quality, im willing to spend that much more than 1.99 for red cherry ones.
These come in a little plastic container with a glue. (which i dont use)
I put them on with Duo eyelash glue and they stick on FOREVER. i hardly have any inner or outter corners slightly coming off at the end of the day like i do with my Red Cherry ones sometimes.
They are very natural looking, so i use them as my everyday lashes. I love the criss cross effect on them. The hairs cross over each other giving them a very pretty look.
CONS: very stiff, so it makes application kind of hard, not real human hair.
These demi lashes are perfect for a natural look and are my go-to lashes 90% of the time. They give a naturally dramatic look that you will not feel self conscious in during the day. They are lightweight, very easy to position and you will forget you are wearing them. They are superior, looks wise, to every other lash in their price range.
For head turning evening lashes I love shu uremura soft cross or smoky layers. The most beautiful false lashes out there, bar none. But when I don't want to go quite that dramatic I reach for these.
My only (slight) gripe is that they are not as durable as the shu uremuras but at 5 dollars a pop thats not a big deal. They are IMO at least as durable as MAC and MAC charges 13 or 14 a pair.
Absolutely LOVE these lashes!!! Cannot believe i found them for such a great bargain - $5! And it includes a little tub of adhesive that is the perfect little size. I got the ones like the review below are just for the outter corner of the eye. They look so real and ehance my eyes, and I can seriously wear them for days and they just stay on! These are a definite repeat purchase for me..and I am glad I didn't shell out $$$ for the MAC one when these are just as good and look great!
These are the first lashes I ever bought, and at $5, what a deal! I love these lashes. The one I got are not the full lashes but the ones you put near the outer corner which makes your eyes seem larger. Also they're the crisscross lashes.
When I wore them the first time at a family party, my mom was telling everyone how nice it looked so I went out and bought her a pair! Haha, these are great lashes for anyone new to makeup or new to false eyelashes.
I can't believe no one has reviewed these yet! These faux lashes are the best, and so cheap! They are my go-to when I want a more dramatic, sexy eye. They are super easy to apply, and best of all- they stay put. I even wore them on my wedding day and they lasted through hours of pictures and dancing. They are also natural looking, and give the appearance of beautiful, thick lashes without making you look like a Barbie doll or a stripper. I sometimes cut them up instead of applying all in one strip and find this gives me better control when I'm putting them on. They are normally about $5 and worth every penny. I always stock up on these before I go on vacation or to a wedding. If you are nervous about trying faux lashes but want that sexy full lash look, try these. They are pretty dummy proof and you will not be disappointed.
