Hi lovelies! Being an Essex girl, false lashes are pretty much part of the uniform when going on a night out, so when The Vintage Cosmetic Company asked me if I'd like to give their Gracie Lashes* a go, I jumped at the chance! I'd had experience with The Vintage Cosmetic company before, as they have been at several blogger events and press days I'd been to, but I'd never actually applied the lashes myself, so I was interested to see how easy they would be to apply.

When I first looked at these lashes, I kind of didn't want to take them out of their box, as it's just so cute! If you're a sucker for cute, girly packaging, then I think the pretty pink, floral design would be reason alone to buy these lashes! Onto the important bit though, these lashes are amazing quality, particularly for the price as they're only £6! What I love about these is that they're on a clear strip, so it makes the line virtually undetectable on the eye. The Gracie lashes provide a longer, more volumised look without the obvious 'false lash look'. They make your eyes 'pop', but aren't so long and thick that they couldn't be worn during the day, or on a more casual night out.

These lashes are some of the lightest lashes I've ever worn, and once applied, you pretty much forget they're there! I love this, because there's nothing I find more irritating on a night out than feeling your false lashes, like when they weigh your eyes down? Yeah that. The glue that comes with these lashes is fab too, it's not too runny or too thick, meaning it's super easy to use. It's also clear, which is fab if you wanted to wear the lashes without eyeliner, as it's pretty much invisible once dried. I apply these lashes using tweezers as I find it's the easiest way, popping them close to my lash line in the middle first, then using the tweezer to secure the corners. As the strip the lashes are on is so fine, these are really easy to bend to the shape of your eye, making them absolutely perfect for beginners! While they were on, these lashes didn't budge all night, despite several cocktails, so that's definitely saying something.

If you haven't already guessed, I'd thoroughly recommend these lashes, as they're super pretty and so easy to use. If you'd like something a little more natural (or more dramatic!) the Vintage Cosmetic Company have many more options on their website!

  1. Wow they look amazing and such great photos. Your eye makeup looks beautiful! I've only tried fake lashes once and I hated that I could see and feel them if that's makes sense haha but these sound really good! Xxx

  2. These really do have a vintage-y affect with the way the lashes are gathered! Lately I've been in love with the Katy Perry Oh Honey lashes--they're absolutely amazing.

  3. I don't very often wear false lashes, but these looks lovely. They just seem to be less obvious as a fake lash than what you normally get. Might have to consider a cheeky purchase. (:
