I really couldn’t be bothered to wear fake eyelashes everyday, even if I absolutely adore the way they make my eyes look. Every so often though, I’ll tack on a few individual flares to give a little extra oomph to my eyes- and they are so quick and easy to apply it’s really not a bother at all! Lately I’ve been using the MesmorEyes Individual Lashes ($4.59 CDN)… let’s see what these can do!
These individual lashes come in a sleek package, which makes them good for storing backups (I’ve always got a couple packs waiting). Each pack contains 48 flares, which each have about 5-6 single lashes. The holders themselves are easily stackable too for storage. It took me a while to realize that the length of the lashes is written on top of the holders- so I’m happy I found that out instead of trying to guess each time which length is which.
Individual lashes aren’t really like strip lashes- you can get away with using inexpensive ones and no one can really tell, because they look super natural either way. I always keep a pack of short lashes and medium lashes on hand, regardless of the brand…but with MesmorEyes I found the short ones to be longer than I need, so I really just use those (and even trim sometimes).
Focusing on the outer corner, I use about 3-4 flares per eye each time, so at 8 lashes per use you’re getting about 5 uses out of a single package. The downside to individual flares is really that I wouldn’t recommend reusing them as you can do with strip lashes. Usually I go for DUO lash glue, but the MesmorEyes Lash Glue #1 is actually pretty amazing stuff! Its much thinner and dries a lot quicker which I definitely love…and it holds these babies on like no tomorrow.
Before & After
I love what a difference just 3-4 individual flares can make! It does take a bit of practice and getting used to the application, but because there’s such a small amount of glue- it dries so fast and takes really no time at all! Practice makes perfect.
- Price: $4.59 CDN
- Availability: Drugstores & other locations
- Overall: Inexpensive lashes that get the job done! Comes in various lengths- but I have a feeling the “short” length may still even be a bit long for some! Great to have on hand.
