Maybe it’s not the time to write the review on the false eye lashes but I figured I’d still do it. As this was probably one of the most wanted product for me in the Holiday 2012 collection. I was not sure whether to buy it or not because it is quite pricy, especially if you keep in mind you can only use false lashes once. Well, twice, maybe, if you’re really delicate with them. And then I received them as a gift! I was incredibly happy and decided to spare them for my New Year’s Eve look. Here’s what I have to say about Dior Grand Bal False Lashes in 002 Gold Crystals.
The packaging is amazing, just as all other Grand Bal products: very chic and gold. Lovely! The lashes themselves are in a nice transparent plastic box with a description and glue inside.
The lashes look amazing: the bristles are crossed, long and seducing, with glitter stones on the lash line. They look just amazing in the packaging!
But unfortunately for me, this is where this amazingness stopped. I must say, I was very excited to try them on and I had something very gorgeous in my mind. I did a simple makeup thinking that these gorgeous falsies would finish the job and that my makeup would be stunning. Unfortunately, this was not the case. The first thing that I did is that I cut off a bit of the lashes as they were too long. A normal procedure I do for almost all the lashes I put on as they’re usually too long for me. The second thing I felt was that the glitter stones made the lashes really heavy. Plus, the material they’re made of is quite stiff. As a result: I couldn’t bend them in the shape that was good for my eyes! They were just too straight for me. The glue was a horror too: it was too sticky, but not sticky enough to make them stick in the corners of my eyes. I can’t describe hoe many times I re-tried to apply them: the ends just didn’t want to stick! Such a disappointment. The residuals of the glue were impossible to get off my eyes: even couple of days later I still had some clumps stuck between my own lashes. So yes, this was a total disappointment for me!
Maybe I will re-try to apply them with another glue (as I barely worn them) and I hope this will help. But for now: no, I wouldn’t recommend you to buy this. Too bad!
Overall mark: 3 out of 10 (3 because they are still amazingly beautiful…in the packaging).
