I heart falsies

My collection so far...

The one on the left is my Make up forever falsies, no idea what style it is. Got it from Sephora. Love the glue but I've lost it already.
The one in the middle is from Sephora. Like $9. Completely waste of money. Never used it.
The ones on the right are my new Quo falsies. They are an exclusive brand from Shoppers Drug Mart of Canada. Their lashes are pretty good, hand made, transparent band, sterilized human hair. Like $7. 803 is my favourite. I got 805 with the glue in a package for $9. The glue is the worst glue ever. Not only was it a waste of money, it hurt my real lashes trying to clean it off. The glue is definitely one of my most regretted purchase in 2010. Another thing, these lashes won't give you double eyelids. I naturally have single eyelids but when I wear falsies I will get double eyelids. Its like a miracle. I will post pictures in the future. But yeah, these Quo falsies didn't give me any double eyelids.

Model 21 # 17 on the left & # 4 on the right. They are Vietnamese false eyelashes. According to some sellers, they are sterilized human hair, but they look like synthetic to me. Model 21 is pretty popular on ebay. I got mine from a local seller on craigslist, $10 for the 20 pairs. Pretty good deal. Pretty good quality too. I like #4 the most. Can't wait to put them on!

Here are my Daiso falsies. For those of you don't know what Daiso is, they are a chain dollar store from Japanese. Prices begins at $2 to $10. And there is one in Vancouver =)
So #1 is a 5 pairs package I got for $6.50. Looks great with smokey eyes.
#2 is a long and dark criss-cross style, $2. #3 is 2 pairs of falsies in a package, $2. Very natural looking. Great for work!
#4 is my favourite. I didn't think I would like it because it doesn't look full or long or anything. But this is all I need to get my double eyelid!!!! And because it doesn't have a lot of hair, it is actually easier to clean and longer lasting since there is no hair falling off during the cleaning process. Again, $2.
#5 is another package of 5 I got for $6.50. Not very natural looking, but kinda fun!! #6 is another pair of criss-cross I got for $2. It is shorter than #1. To the best of my knowledge, Daiso's falsies are all made of synthetic hair. And honestly they are not that long lasting, but they are reasonably priced. Some of them are not comfortable to wear, but they are cheap! So, whatever!
On Eki's blog, she had posted pictures of the June 2010 issue of Popteen. And on this issue, they did a review of the top 50 most popular falsies in Japan. But I can't read Japanese...judging from the picture and eki's comment, quite a few of Daiso's falsies made it into top 50! Can't wait for the June issue to be translated!!

Oh, and I have to add that most of the these falsies give me double eyelids easily.
Sometime in the future I will post picture of these lashes in action! Stay tuned.
