One thing I can't live without is false eyelashes. I don't wear them on a daily basis but if I ever have a bit of a 'do' coming up then quite frankly - they're a must have. They define your eyes, add volume and length to the lashes and also photograph really nicely. I recently had the chance to try some lashes from 'Girls With Attitude' - a website which stocks all sorts of beauty bits including false eyelashes and nails. I must say, their website is fantastic and so easy to navigate. I found it really easy to browse through and they're all categorised so you can easily find what you're after. They kindly said I could pick a couple of pairs to try and to say I was spoilt for choice would be an understatement. I actually ended up picking out the 'Natural Beauty' and 'Swept Away' lashes and asked them to do me a bit of a lucky dip on the third pair - ever the indecisive blogger!
The lashes, like most falsies, come with glue and are ready to apply. I decided to try 'Swept Away' on a recent night out and found them really lightweight and easy to place on the eyes - some lashes I've tried can be quite stiff and don't react nicely to being flexed/manipulated to the shape of your peepers, but these were really easy to fit on the lash line and weren't too long either. I've never really tried eyelashes which flick-out at the ends - I'm very much a 'bog standard' eyelash kind of girl but I must say I'm now converted to a more 'swoopy' shape (yes, 'swoopy' - you get where I'm coming from...) They give the eyes a lovely little 'cat eye' shape without being overly false or heavy looking, and when paired with a smokey eye look really striking. A couple of the girls who I went out with actually mentioned how nice my eyelashes looked and said they were shaped really nicely. The lashes stayed put all night, and the glue held them firmly in place. I have sensitive eyes so sometimes have to be careful with what eyelashes I wear but I had no problem with these.
I also tried 'Natural Beauty' - a very lightweight, almost undetectable false lash. Don't underestimate the power of natural looking falsies. Some of you might question why you'd wear false eyelashes if you aren't going for full on glamour, but I'm very partial to the more natural looking ones - I find they open my eyes and make my lashes appear longer and they're virtually undetectable from my natural lashes. If I ever have a presentation at uni or if I find my eyelashes just don't want to be curled on a certain day - then these come in very handy. They maintain the 'just applied my mascara' look all day long and because they're so natural looking, they don't look heavy or 'false' at all. In fact, if you're new to false eyelashes or want to try something for the daytime without looking overdone, I cannot recommend these types of lashes enough. They're a must-have in my make-up collection for me and the shape and style is something I always go back to if my eyelashes are ever looking a bit 'sparse' - they give fullness but don't look like you've overdone your eyes.
I'm so impressed with these eyelashes and I will no doubt be ordering from Girls With Attitude again. I was so impressed with the selection - they really do have something for everyone and the range is one of the biggest and most varied I've ever seen from a brand. They have a pair of lashes for every occasion from 'natural' to 'dramatic' - or even full-on double lash effect ones and paper cut outs for the more daring amongst you. For any false-lash fan this company is one that you simply must know about and you can have a nosey at their site here.
