KKCenterHK is an online retailer of various beauty accessories, based in Hong Kong. If you're a falsies kind of girl, they have like a gazillion lashes to choose from (if you don't believe me, you can check it out yourself at their website), so it was hard picking just one. But despite the distance, shipping was quick and efficient, and a box of lashes showed up in the mail soon after I had decided.
The order arrived safely and well-packed, although the paper box had gotten a little bit dinged up in transit. Nevertheless, the lashes inside were all fine. I had ordered false lahses model A218, which was billed as "soft heavy dark black eyelashes". A pretty accurate description, if you ask me.
The box contained 10 pairs of lashes - a good buy for any girl who wears them on a regular basis. The product picture on the KKCenterHK website is actually pretty accurate, too. Here's a close-up shot of the individual pairs:
With lashes as gorgeous looking as these, I was excited to try them out, and I'm pleased to say that these do add a dramatic flair to your lashes.
Here are some before pictures, kindly modeled by my sister. I had to bribe her for her to pose for me, so I hope you guys are appreciative of the effort that went into these photos!
Here's a shot of the eye without lashes, when the eye is open:
Now a shot without lashes, with the eye closed. On another note, have you ever tried getting a pet to stay still for a photo? You won't believe how many photos I had to take to get one which wasn't blurred. But then again, it could just have been my camera acting up that day.
And of course, the Cinderella moment we've all been waiting for - the eye shots with those lashes!
Looking at the difference, I was like, whoa mamma! These lashes really produce a very noticeable effect. I like that the lash hairs have longer strands of hairs interspersed with shorter strands. It gives a doe-eyed effect that is still more natural-looking than a set of lashes which consist of all long strands.
Here's a shot with the eye closed, just so you can really see the lashes on:
I'm not generally too much of a fan of falsies in general, but I really appreciated the comfort of wearing these lashes. The lash bone of this set of lashes is quite thin and flexible, making the lashes conform more easily to the contour of the lashline. I also liked that they didn't feel too heavy, or give me the sensation that my eye was being poked by plastic objects. I guess as far as false lashes go, these aren't bad.
So, are you into false lashes, or would you prefer to use mascara for the doe-eyed effect? If you're interested, these retail for US$8-9 on the KKCenterHK website.
