It isn't every day a girl gets to wear fake lashes - best saved for fancy nights out where I can coerce a friend with a steadier hand to help me out, however We Are Faux have been floating about my radar for a while now and when Ana Cruzalegui asked if I'd be interested in trying some out what else was I supposed to say?
"Rosebud" lashes. These lashes are massive. Studs with green and navy throughout made them have an almost violet sheen to them which I loved. I have to say when I was having them applied (I feel like such a diva having my lashes did, but seriously if I didn't have someone helping me out they would have been down my face within 20 minutes) I was dreading the weight of them. I was like..."Yeah I'm going to look like a BAMF but I'm going to be sporting some serious droopy eye before the night is out." That said, they were no way as heavy as I thought they were going to be. I mean yes, I could feel them, I was aware I had lashes on but hell - look at em, how could I not, but they were surprisingly comfortable. What I was most impressed by was how bloody long the lashes lasted. I wore them on set for the Obscure Couture filming and it was a long night, and there was no way I was easy on those lashes, yet they saw me to the bitter end (about 7am the next morning when I remembered to take them off.)
Sasco - I feel like my life could be vastly improved by more crystals, or the equally gorgeous Rubia - because there is never enough black and gold in my life.
Lashes vary from £9-12 a pair and are available in Superdrug, La La Land and directly via the site.
