Oh my, I’ve been falling behind on my blog posts! I apologize for that, but also don’t really feel to bad because MY WEDDING IS IN 2 WEEKS!!!
Today I have two false eyelash reviews for you. I received both of these complimentary from BornPrettyStore.com, but as always thoughts regarding the product are my own.
Lashes being reviewed:
- Princess Lee Handmade Artificial Black False Fake Eyelashes 666 ($8.54)
- Black Fiber False Eyelash Long Dense Eyelashes A15 ($9.21)
Both of these lashes come with 10 pairs per box!
This is an excellent deal considering how expensive lashes could get. You can however find similar lashes to these on eBay for less. But of course, it depends on whether or not you want to go through a reputable online web store or through an eBay seller.
- The #666 lashes pictured on the upper portion of the photo below has a clear wire/string band.
- The #A15 lashes pictured on the lower portion of the photo below has a clear elastic band.
Ok, with all that said, let’s have a look at #666 first.
These lashes are more typical of the type that I like to wear. I love lashes that are heavier towards the ends to help elongate my eyes. The only thing that turned me off when I first received these lashes was the texture. I couldn’t help but feel that the lashes looked like spider legs!! Gross, huh? On the flip side, they don’t look like spider legs when you wear them. In fact, it just looks like mascara, and most likely you won’t even notice the texture.
Now some detailed shots of me wearing the #666 lashes. They are cute! These would also work very well if you are trying to do gyaru eye makeup (which I am not doing in any of these photos).
I love these lashes and have no complaints at all about them at all!
False Eyelash #666 Overall Rating: ★★★★★
- Easy to apply

- Semi-matte finish
- Great for gyaru eye makeup
- Beautiful with long winged eyeliner
Now let’s see the #A15 lashes.
I don’t normally wear lashes like these since they usually make my eyes look more narrow. But since I’m getting married soon, I wanted to experiment with lashes that look more natural. These lashes are great for almond shaped eyes, and especially asian eyes. Most of the lash length is towards the center, but there is a great amount of length all around.
These lashes are beautiful, but one huge turn off for me was the packaging. I’ve had eyelashes from this brand before, and have never experienced this problem in the past. I’m thinking that it might be just a bad box or perhaps it has to do with the material used for the band of the #A15 lashes. I was having lots of difficulty removing the eyelash ends from the gold stickers. The elastic band would get stuck and then stretch resulting in partially destroyed eyelashes. This was very frustrating for me because I was being very careful.
I basically wasted a pair of lashes trying to get one out. Both went into the trash.
At least these lashes look great, despite all of my struggles mentioned above. What do you think? I think I’m starting to like these types of lashes again.
Don’t my eyes look more awake in this photo than it did with the lashes above?
I had to take away two stars for these eyelashes because of the horrible packaging. If I had that much trouble getting a pair out, I’m pretty sure the rest of the box will be a similar experience. Ha, and also I’m not a fan of the really shinny synthetic look.
