I’ve always been a little intimidated by false lashes. They seem really hard to put on and get looking right, especially when you apply them on yourself. I remember when I first saw clusters or individual lashes and I thought, huh, those could be really cool and look much more nice and natural, unlike most full strips of lashes that almost always look fake. But then I thought about what it would be like to apply them… ugh, what a pain.
Well the folks over at Lashfully had made the process of applying little cluters of lashes as simple and fool-proof as possible. They should know, that is their whole business, lashes! Lashfully specializes in lash extensions, with their signature service called Lash Yourself, which they offer at all of their three locations in San Francisco, Walnut Creek, and Los Angeles.
But if you aren’t ready to make that leap, Lashfully has a do it yourself kit for those of us who just want some occasional lash enhancement, called the Lash Appeal Kit. The kit includes salon-quality temporary lash clusters. The lashes are incredibly gentle, non-toxic, and actually easy to apply at home with the provided tweezers and glue. The set includes a full set of individual eyelash clusters 10mm long, a full set of individual eyelash clusters 12mm long, a pair of flathead tweezer and a tube of temporary eyelash adhesive.
The box they come in have step-by-step instructions printed right on the top. It makes the application foolproof. For those of you who want some more help, they have a youTube video tutorial posted as well. With care, the temporary lashes will last up to five days. I found just a couple clusters on the sides of my lashes added just the right extra volume I wanted, but the beauty of the clusters is your can use as many or as few as you want. I thought the 10mm were perfect for a super natural look and the 12mm for a bit longer, more dramatic look.
