Last week, I had the privilege of sitting down with my talented and beautiful friend, Kassy Wong from Creations By Kassy, as she received her samples for her mink false lashes line. I was totally awed at the luxurious lashes that were before me and it definitely didn't take me long to start trying them on myself.
For those of you who are new to the mink lashes phenomenon, they are, in my opinion, the most gorgeous, natural and softest false eyelashes on the market today. Even though you are wearing a full strip, you honestly don't even feel like you are wearing anything and goodness are they comfortable! Another plus side to mink lashes is the fact that you can wear them up to 25 times! Who else TRIES to preserve your false lashes, but then find that it has contorted itself to the ugliest shape and it just doesn't look or feel as good and comfortable anymore after the first use? I definitely did! When I first started wearing false lashes, I did try to save them for another day but found that they just didn't look great anymore, so from then on, I threw them out after every use, which can definitely add up money wise. Kassy was sweet enough to give me a pair to try out and I've worn them at least 4 times since she gave them to me and they are still in perfect condition! The lash band didn't go all wonky, it is still comfortable, beautiful and best of all, I think I really can use them up to 25 times at the rate that I'm going.
So... without further ado, I'd like you introduce you guys to K Luxe Lashes! They are 100% mink lashes which are hand tied/hand arranged and are 100% cruelty free. The website for the lashes is unfortunately still in progress but I just couldn't contain my excitement anymore because as far as I know, K Luxe Lashes will be one of the first companies to bring these beautiful lashes to Australia! For those of you interested, I will definitely keep you guys updated on how the website is going and when you guys can make the purchases. The prices for these lashes will range from $30-$39.95 :)
- So unbelievably soft
- Natural looking, even if you pick the thicker/longer styles
- You can use them up to 25 times, providing you take care of them
- So many different styles to choose from which makes the versatile
- Feels so light on
- Very easy to put on as the shape of the band contours to your eyes
- More pricey than normal false eyelashes
- You will still need to clean off the lash band after every use
- Although you can technically put mascara on them if you so wish to, it will lessen the lifespan of the lashes
I decided to do 2 makeup looks with the pair of lashes that I got given so that you guys can see how gorgeous they look and how versatile they are. (FYI, I got the "Elizabeth")
