When out and about in Liverpool there are three things I like to have; big hair, big lips and of course big lashes. For me, giving yourself arm ache after spending ages blending your perfect smokey eye, deserves that extra finish with some beautiful lashes.
Although mascara helps define my eyes, false lashes definitely add so much more. I feel they take your look to the next level, and in my case add some much needed length and volume. I have tried many different brands and styles over the years, but recently I had been feeling as though they never quite ticked all the boxes. Too fake looking, too long, too uncomfortable, too pricey and ultimately I started to fall out of love with them.
So when Threads Beauty contacted to me to review some of their lashes*, I was thrilled, and hoped this would restart my love affair with falsies, and maybe even find my forever after lashes.
The packaging of Threads Beauty lashes is quite simple, nothing too special, but as the saying goes, it’s the inside that counts.
Threads Beauty lashes are all handmade with an extra flexible band, which is great, as nobody needs extra difficulty when applying lashes (I’m sure we’ve all been there when one end pings off while you’re trying to get the other end to stick!). They’re really lightweight, making them comfortable to wear, and almost feel like you aren’t wearing any at all.
The lash glue was the biggest surprise. I find most eyelash glue to be gloopy, and some have a particularly unpleasant smell (we all know which brand I’m referring to). The Threads lash glue, although it doesn’t look like much, was really easy to apply, had no smell (woohoo!) and kept my lashes on all day. Plus it’s latex free!
I was lucky enough to be sent three different styles, so to show them off to their best, I created three different looks and wore them all day to really test these bad boys out.
First up were the most natural of the three, Be-Bop.
I was really surprised by this set, as I usually prefer my falsies with a bit more volume. However, they really emphasised my eyes without being over the top.
Next up were the slightly more voluminous and aptly named Vava Voom.
Last but by no means least are my favourite Celestial.
The criss-cross pattern of these, provide length and volume all rolled into one out of this world set of eyelashes (pun fully intended). Again they were easy to apply and stayed on all day, even with me fluttering my lashes every time I caught myself in the mirror.
So what do I think? Honestly? I love these lashes. They are beautifully made and there is a style for every occasion. Each pair costs £9, which isn’t the cheapest set of lashes on the market, but certainly not the priciest, and for the quality you receive they are worth it!
Go bat those eyelashes,
*These lashes were sent for review purposes but I always give an honest review, where all opinions and views are 100% my own.
