Kiss Eyelashes

I'm not really big on false eyelashes, I'm scared to wear them out as I fear them falling off and landing on my upper lip resembling some kind of Hitler 'tache and sometimes I just don't like the look of them on some people - they often give the wearer some kind of droopy eye effect that just looks weird. Anyway I got these Kiss Eyelashes from Home Bargains for 75p, their RRP is around £5 so a bargain was certainly had, but were they any good? WELL.....
 The idea of them is they have strings attached to the corners so they're 'easier' to put on. As I've only attempted to wear lashes once and wasn't too arsed about them I didn't see how this would make them any easier to apply, I mean it's pretty simple to apply them anyway?! I thought the lashes themselves looked nice and natural so for a eyelash n00b they wouldnt be over kill and make me look weird.
I know they were 75p but if I'd have paid £5 for them to then realised they don't come with glue in I would have been pretty disgruntled! But alas they didn't so I tried to apply them with some glue from a cheapo pair of lashes someone gave me.
 Ok, there I was raring to go, up for the lash application, yeah let's do it!! Only to find when I pulled the lashes out of the packaging one of the strings had fallen off one side, and it was near impossible to put it back on. Defeating the object of the lashes completely! 
I tried to apply them regardless of that though, the lashes had a really sticky strip already on them from the packaging which was a bit weird. I put the glue on anyway and it must have been the cheapest, shittest glue ever. It didn't even stick them for a second. Thus meaning the whole exercise was a complete waste of time! No string and shit glue. Therefore if you're thinking of paying a fiver for these - don't. For 75p you can't expect much though so that's ok. I'll try again with some other glue because as I said this is the type of lash I would be interested in wearing as they're quite natural looking. 
Have you tried these? What dya reckon?

  1. One of my strings had fallen off too! Don't think I had as bad as an experience as you, but definitely wouldn't buy them again.

  2. I've been using these for months and i'm wearing them in most of my posts I think they are amazing. then again ive been wearing false eyelashes most days for a long time!
    I use eyelure glue and I dont use the strings. I find the strings pointless I take them out stright away and just apply them like regular lashes.

  4. What a coincidence.. I bought some false eyelashes from Home Bargains today! I saw these ones, but I went for the packet of two for £1.49 which werent quite as long and didnt have string. I have some eyelure glue already which is really good. I hardly ever wear them, but i like collecting them.. x

  5. I haven't tried these lashes but I've heard that they are more difficult, not easier, to put on.

    Plus you can't put the strings back on so if you want to reuse them you have to put them on the normal way.

    I have far too many pairs of false eyelashes for someone who never really wears them. I have quite long and curly lashes to start with... so I don't really know why I have the false ones

  7. The lashes are pointless with the string it doesn't pull off when you apply them. They also twirl on the string when you ty to apply them. I love the lashes themselves though! :) And the glue is my favorite, if you don't allow at least a minute for the glue to get tacky, you're right they don't stick at all and it becomes a huge glue mess on your eye lid! The trick is to let the glue get really tacky! I wait like 2 min or maybe more...
