Wow, how fun are these NYX Special Effects Lashes ($10; available in 40 styles)? I’m building up the courage to wear the brown spotted Leopard ones out in public, and I’m almost there. I’m thinking mall date, perhaps?
Electric blue Midnight Walts is another story… I’m reserving that one for private, in-home displays of cray-cray. I feel très Looney Tunes with ‘em on, not gonna lie.
I love how many there are to choose from (40 in all), and at $10, they’re $5 cheaper than the freakiest $15 Urban Decay Urban Lashes and half the cost of falsies from Shu Uemura (which are great, I might add).
I’m not sure about the other styles, but Leopard and Midnight Walts didn’t come with lash glue. Luckily I had a spare tube on hand.
As you might expect, some pairs are easier to apply than others. Leopard was a cinch (took about five minutes); Midnight Walts, on the other hand, wasn’t (took about 15 minutes). NOTE: I’m incompetent when it comes to applying false lashes, so your results may vary. That I was able to apply either of these without losing an eye was a minor makeup miracle.
These — especially Leopard — seem pretty fragile compared to other funky lashes I’ve worn in the past. I’m not sure how many times I’ll be able to wear each pair, but I’m guessing just two or three times. If you decide to give any of them a try, handle with care, and you should be able to use them at least a second time.
For $10 you can take your look to the next level with a pair of NYX Special Effects Lashes. Tabs, who’s lucky to have been born with a built-in flirty fringe, also likes that they’re cruelty-free.
