Bear with me here guys, I’m living a teenage dream right now. And yes I did just quote Katy Perry. Today I’m reviewing Eylure, which is a brand I’ve been wearing for over 15 years. Yes, I am that old.
Hello to those avid readers of my ramblings, welcome back. And to those of you looking for lash advice – finally Behind the False Lashes has come through with the goods!
Eylure to me is like an old trusted friend. They’ve seen me glammed up on a night out, dancing on tables – falling off tables, they’ve supported me through my pink eyeshadow and blue mascara phase (shudder) and have remained strong during boy related meltdowns. As well as waking up beside me after a night out… ready to do it all over again.
A true lash addict
Ok but seriously, I was SO happy when We Love Lashes got in touch to ask if I’d review Eylure. I’ve been using them for absolute donkey’s years and despite toning down my addiction from dramatic doubles to a casual 101 or 107, I’m still a huge fan. Sorry if you are a newbie and wondering what the dick I’m talking about, let me explain.
Eylure lashes come in a range of different lengths widths and thickness and as a creature of habit who tends to grab the same type over and over again, I only realised quite recently how much their range has expanded. So much choice. Today I’ll be reviewing the 107s and the individual lashes, with a few handy tools for application and added sass thrown into the mix.
Review of Eylure: 107
So let’s start with my fail-safe faves, the 107s – just the right amount of thickness and volume, without looking as if a butterfly has inadvertently attached itself to each of your eyelids. I wear these in the day or the eve, they’re the perfect day to night lash. So whether you’re brunching or heading out for date night dins (clearly all my plans revolve around food) they are a solid choice.
I always trim the lash to fit my eye (if needed) apply the glue, blow it a little so it gets tacky then apply. Once both lashes are on and the glue is fully dry I use an eyelash curler (this one was kindly gifted and retails at £7.95) to help blend and give them that extra bit of Va Va Voom!
And voila – you’re done, sass levels 100… now it’s just time to apply the winged liner and hope it’s not going to ruin all your hard work!
- How long do they take to apply: 5 mins max
- How long do they last: 1 day
- How many times can you re-use: I’d say 5-7 times depending how well you look after them
- Price: £5.99
Review of Eylure Pro-Lash Individual Lash Pro
I’ve wanted to try individuals for a while and frequently watched in awe as my little sis put them on in about 0.4 seconds whilst also watching the TV. In Awe. I was also keen to give them a whirl as they can last up to 5 days – tell me a girl that wouldn’t want fuller lashes for longer?
Actually so surprised how well these went on, they do take a little more time to apply and are a tad more fiddly but you can dial up or dial down the glam as much as you like with these. If you just want casual flicks you can add lashes to your outer lashes only, and for a fuller look, you can apply more lashes. Note: these lashes are applied on top of your own lashes, as close to the lash line as possible, without touching the eyelid.
Individuals also cut out (quite literally) the need to trim the lash to fit the width of your eye. As you can choose how many to apply based on where you’re going and what you’re doing. Win. Obviously, I went for a fuller look – you can take the girl out of double lashes but you can’t take the double lashes out of the girl
The individuals come with a remover to help you take them off. Apply a small amount to a cotton bud or pad, leave for a few seconds to soak in, then gently wipe the lash away. Will let you know how I get on with this…
- How long do they take to apply: around 1hr – but reckon it would be half that if you’re not me!
- How long do they last: up to 5 days
- How many times can you re-use: I’d say 3-4 times depending how well you look after them
- Price: £9.99
Eyelash applicator – worth it or nada?
I’ve been wearing lashes for years. But I’ll let you into a little secret, I really don’t enjoy applying them. I love wearing them, but the process of putting the glue on, balancing near my eyeball and trying not to eff up my finished make up. Not fun huns.
So when I was gifted an applicator (RRP £6.99) I was super keen to give it a try. Basically, I’m here for tools that make my life easier. Anyone else’s prep includes a few prayers to the makeup gods? I have to be mentally prepared to apply any sort of lash!
The applicator did help – it stopped me from getting glue all over my fingers which is a good thing and I was able to apply my lashes a little quicker than usual. But would tweezers do the same job? Possibly. I’m on the fence with this one, but maybe I just need a little more practice!
If like me, you love a fuller lash, I’d definitely recommend Eylure. I’ve been using this brand for years and they literally have something for everyone. Even after 15 years of use, I’ve now found a new fave in the individuals, which are just fabulash! Soz couldn’t help myself…
Do you have a fave Eylure lash? xo
