These are very beautiful, full but natural looking lashes. They are easy to apply and easy to reuse for a novice like me. They aren't super long so I can wear them comfortably with my glasses. THey also don't add any vignetting to my sight.

These are very affordable and you can buy them in multipacks from the drugstore.

I use these everyday. They last a long time. Walgreens usually has them on sale. One of the things that makes them better than others is the fact that they are pliable and you are able to adhere them to your lash line easier. I definitely think that these are by far the best false lashes out there!

I have to admit that Ardell’s falsies is what got me hooked on fake lashes. These aren’t the kinds of lashes that will last many wears, though. I can get up to 6 wears with each pair as long as I remove and clean them carefully. I think for budget brand lashes that are readily available in the US, Ardells are the ones to get. The band on the Ardells (for the most part) are thin, yet stay curved when you take them out of the package. It makes for an easy, comfortable application. I’ve hardly felt the need to pluck out any Ardell falsies before the end of the day because they’re THAT comfortable. This holds true for the Demi Wispies.

The Demi Wispies are my go to lashes. I really like how they can be used for either natural or slightly dramatic looks, which makes them so versatile for me. I think one thing for me to note is that I have large eyes but not a lot of lid space. Because of that, it’s been a challenge for me, personally, to find lashes that don’t touch my brows but are long enough to give the definition that I want. These fit the bill perfectly. I really like the style of the Demi Wispies for these reasons. Also, I feel that the cat eye shape (shorter on the inner corners, longest on the outer corners) is very flattering for my round-ish eyes. These lashes are fluttery, yet they give a good amount of volume without looking super fake or heavy. Needless to say, I can see why these are very popular lashes!

I’ve tried the different variations of the Demi Wispies, and I thought it’d be helpful to compare the OG Demi Wispies to the newer variations. Also, I am almost certain that the Demi Wispies in the multipacks and the ones labeled “Wispies” in red lettering are the exact same styles as one another.

Baby Demi Wispies – the actual lashes on these are shorter than the DWs, though they retain the same cut and band width as the DWs. I think this would be a great option for those with smaller eyes. I do think, for me, the lashes themselves were too “stumpy” that it just looked odd on me.

Studio Effects Demi Wispies – Still pretty similar to the DWs, but there is an added thickness and length to the outer corners. I like these as equally as the original DWs. This one is more for photoshoots and other occasions that call for a bunch of photos. IMO, they do veer on being too unnatural for a “normal” day.

Double Up Demi Wispies – Literally, it’s two of the original DWs fused together in one. The band is significantly thicker than the original DWs and the other variations, so this is the most uncomfortable pair of the DW variants. I’m not sure if I’ll get to wear these, maybe for a very smoky eye or a photoshoot. These are definitely the most dramatic pair that I own!

If you’re new to lashes, definitely give the Demi Wispies a shot. Hell, even if you’re a seasoned falsies wearer, try these if you haven’t already!

As I've gotten older (47) I've noticed my hair, eyebrows and now eyelashes have gotten thinner and mascaras just don't seem to give me the extra length and volume they used to.. So I decided to give false eyelashes a try, to my satisfaction and surprise I'm very pleased with the results so far 😊 I've only tried the Ardell Demi wispies and also the Ardell accent 318 wispies, I use kiss I envy glue to apply them and this is now a regular practice in my beauty routine, the wispies give a very natural look just like my real lashes but a step up on the length, volume and color.. I always blend them in with mascara (MaryKay Lash Intensity) or Too Faced Better Than False) and it comes out perfect every time also use Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 eyeshadow palette, this look turns back the clock as that's what I'm after these days! I really love these lashes and would recommend to anyone over 40 give them a try if you're having problems with mascaras not doing their job! They are also easy to apply and reasonably priced, I buy mine from eBay and that seems a bit cheaper and you can get multi packs 👍🏻😃

My absolute favorite lashes thus far. The band is very thin and flexible making them super easy to pop on. I'm not the best at applying lashes and before these I would have to at least cut them in half which I wasn't a fan of. They are very comftorable. I don't even really feel them. I have zero issues with the ends popping up. They are about $3.50 USD per pair and you get roughy half a dozen applications per pair with daily care.

Cheap, light weight and easy to trim and appy. Great for the lash-newb or for someone who likes a classic look (not heavy looking - so if you want high drama these are not for you.) I hesitate to use the words "natural looking" as they are definitely fare longer than most people's natural length.

A great set of starter lashes.

I have these in the Studio Effects version, which is where a few individual lashes were added to the Demi Wispies on the end to give a slightly more dramatic look.

However, there isn't a spot for it and I'm not sure it matters too much because they still are demi wispies so I can put my thoughts here. But if you're at the store and unsure which to choose, I say go for the Studio Effects. It's slight, but really pretty. Some of the images online make it look super full on the tail ends, and I find it's not THAT dramatic, but it's still something that kinda bumps them up from regular.

These are probably my favorite lashes. I don't wear lashes too often, but I've tried a few that I thought would look good and it's never quite what I want once they're on. I was always hearing good things about "wispies" so I got them when I saw the SE. I also bought the double up regular wispies but haven't tried those yet. These look the most natural and when I say that, like everyone else, they aren't "natural" but they aren't bulked up and "fake lashes" looking either. They have a clear band instead of a thick black base and flex well. Mine still pop off my inner corner because I suck at appling them but they are far more comfortable with the thin band than the 'dramatic' and stiff type of lashes (which, now, I can't imagine using again, uuugghh). Pretty boring review but def another vote yes from me. And try the SE ;)

I was never into false lashes because my own we're always long and thick ...until I hit 40. No one tells you that your lashes will thin right out :(
I started buying other brands , just searching for lashes of any kind ! Something to help mask my sparse lashes.
I hit gold when I found these. They are perfect. Great look without being ' over the top' and super comfortable. Trust me, not all lashes are.
Plus they are easy to get on. Really flexible.
You can't go wrong with these.

I first discovered these lashes on somebody's eye. A makeup artist at Ulta had the prettiest eyelashes I had ever seen--glam, sweet and feminine but natural to the naked eye. I asked her "Are those your natural eyelashes?", thinking that it could possibly be. She replied "no", blushing and responding, "It's Ardell demi wispies." "Lovely!" I exclaimed. I could now buy her eye effect.

I knew nothing then about the hype around these lashes.

All I did know was that most eyelashes were far too dramatic for me for any occasion. But these were everyday--glam without trying.

As I searched for it then and there, I found that they were sold out. And every drugstore afterwards, I would find the same thing.

I thought well then, there has to be a dupe. Thus began my search for the perfect eyelashes. I tried so many Ardell lashes. Nothing quite fit my liking. I even ran into plenty of "demi-wispies" styles in the Ardell line that I would later discover were not the right ones. What a bummer. For such an iconic style, Ardell really had me on a wild goose chase with demi-wispies Glamour, demi wispies 120, demi wispies 102, etc.

I would try human hair brands, premium human hair lashes and mink lashes, and I even grew to love them (mink ones especially). I held on tightly to Kara DW (demi-wispies) as my favorite lashes, which are much like Red Cherry DW. And I thought I had my eyelash collection squared away until I saw the Ardell *Natural* Demi-Wispies (with no number on it) on a BOGO sale online on Ulta.com. It was the only style of demi-wispies I had not tried from Ardell...and also one I had never seen anywhere (the unicorn). I took a chance.

And when I put them on, I knew I had found The One. And it was worth the hassle. It was better than all of my human hair and mink lashes because they were the most natural and yet show-stopping lashes I had ever tried. Only a seasoned connoisseur would now they were falsies.

They made me realize that my Kara DW's had been a little "too wispy" to be natural (although they more than sufficed). It looked like the Natural demi-wispies by Ardell were growing out of my eye. And while the mink lashes were epic, the bands were thick and they were made for the stage, photography and grand events. Natural demi-wispies are tapered gradually in the most natural way. The search is over.
