99Cents Store False Lashes



I love false lashes!!! I'm not blessed with full and long lashes, so I always rely on a false lashes for a boost of glamour. Just want to share a pair of false lashes I've been recently enjoying. These are a pair of Select Lashes in S1. Can you believe I got it from the 99Cents Store? They are a hidden gem in their little beauty section.

These lashes are a full strip. It's not too full and too long. It's full starting from the strip, then it thins and flares out as it reach the tip. They just have the right amount of drama without being too fake if that makes any sense. Just make sure you trim a few lashes off on the inner corner to fit your eyes because they are very long.

What I like:
  • They look really beautiful. They are quite dramatic, but not dragqueen-ish so I can still wear them during the day time. 
  • They are easy to clean.
  • I was able to get 5 uses out of them or more if I wanted to. I just clean them very well with makeup remover, sanitize with alcohol and let it dry and they are good to use again.
  • They are easy to apply. 


What I don't like:
  • They are made of plastic which causes a shiny reflection in photographs. You can see it on the second photo below. This is a bit of a bummer but for 99cents, I can live with it lol.
  • Since they are plastic, they feel quite heavy, especially on initial application. But my eyes were able to get used to them after awhile, so I was okay with it.








And here's what they look like on me. Its a photo I posted on my Instagram. Add me! under Missbecky0207!





Overall, these are pretty good false lashes. Sure they have few cons, but for the price, I really can't complain. I just don't recommend them for beginners. They have a bit of weight to them that will makes your eyes feel weird. Opt for natural hair false lashes instead ^_^.




Good Luck!
