I've been wearing these in so many recent posts and Instagram images that if you read at least some of them, I'm sure you've already seen me wearing these. My natural lashes aren't exactly short or sparse, but nonetheless, I really wanted to give a pack of Born Pretty lashes a try and I choose these #HS-43 that come in a pack of ten.
I immediately compared them with my old favourite Demi Wispies and noticed that they are at least a third shorter, so I was concerned they might be too short for me, since my natural lashes are quite long. Well, these turned out to be even more dramatic on my eyes than Demi Wispies. They have a similar tapered shape with short lashes in inner corners and then gradually longer ones towards the outer edges, but they are a lot denser lashes than Wispies. On my eyes they are a bit short in the inner corners, but huge and fluttery on the outer corners. The effect is very thick and long lashes that don't exactly scream natural look, but they look so cool with a smoky eye.
These are much harder for me to apply than Demi Wispies, mostly because they are too wide for my eyes. I cut away a few millimetres before applying them, but I still have an issue with these lashes and that is that no matter what I do, I cannot get them to look nice in the inner corners. They are always glued oddly and I think this has to do with the black seam, but I just wear black eyeliner to hide the odd position of the lashes. Glue is not included, so I use my Essence one, which isn't that good, so I need something else. Though these lashes are light, I can feel them in my inner corners. It's not annoying, it just makes you aware that you're wearing them. I wear them with either no mascara or just a touch of it to tint the lashes because otherwise it just looks way too much on my eyes. Also these are the type of lashes that demand some makeup on the eyes, at the very least a liner to hide the seam, since it's black. I don't have any other makeup on in the first two pictures, so you can see how they look on its own.
As said before these come in a box with 10 pairs. The lashes aren't glued on, but sort of tied on. They are lashes on a string is what I'm trying to say and the first time I had no idea how to get them out. I ended up cutting them, but almost ruined them in the process. I wish they were stuck on instead like Ardell's.
I'm happy with these considering how many you get for the price. They are huge on my small eyes and it takes more work to blend them in with my lashes, but I love these with a bronze smoky eye because it makes it look so much more glam, so these are definitely for those who want drama. They aren't the easiest to apply, but I'm not that skilled at putting on lashes anyway. I have worn them loads, especially when I take pictures for the blog as my natural lashes seem to just disappear on full face pictures. I would love to try some more of their lashes, they are nice for the price. They are not Ardell's, but they are much more affordable.
These lashes are available on Born Pretty and currently cost $6.39. With a code MKOH10 you can get 10 % discount.
