Velour eyelashes REVIEW: I’ll start out right away by saying this – these lashes aren’t cheap. They are on sale right now from $59.00 to $29.00, but even at half-price these puppies are going to cost you a pretty penny. The reason for the high price tag is partially because the lashes are made from mink (cruelty free). There are definite benefits to luxury lashes though. For starters, they go on SO nicely, they contour beautifully to your lid and they look so realistic. Even these high drama lashes are made to look as authentic as possible when you’ve got them on. You can also wear them up to 25 times which is a lot of mileage for falsies. Most of my other fake lashes are garbage after about five wears. If you’re put off by the price, you might want to invest in one pair and save them for special occasions, they’ll last years. The only major con I experienced is that the lashes are very long and this can be a bit annoying. For example, these lashes touch my brows when my eyes are open, they are THAT long. And I don’t have low arched brows either. However, having spoken to Mabel & Angela I know they are thinking of shortening the lashes so this shouldn’t be a problem for long.
RATING: 4.5/5 – Honestly, if I had the money I would probably invest in the entire line, they are that nice. Everyone who has worn my pair has fallen in love, myself included. However, the price is a bit high for most wallets and the super long lashes can be a big distracting.
RECOMMENDATION: I’ve literally worked with every single pair of lashes in the collection, upper and lower, and it’s impossible for me to pick a favorite, but I highly recommend “Are Those Real” and “You Complete Me” which are some of their best sellers for their high impact, but natural look. I also really like “Oops Naughty Me” for a slightly sexier stare. Check out the site and see which pair best suit you.
Finally, I leave you with a short YouTube tutorial on how you can get this Taylor Swift look using Velour Lashes. Enjoy and have an awesome weekend!
