Hello - has anybody had these?? I'm thinking of getting a 'half natural' set for a two week holiday but am not keen on the TOWIE look... Do they stay on and do they pull your actual eyelashes out? Thanks!

I had some done for my birthday last year. I asked for a natural look and got a fair bit more than I asked for!! I was really disappointed at first but actually I came to like them after a week or so, you feel so glam when you get up in the morning! grin They lasted about 6 weeks before my hayfever kicked in big style and I had to take them out because my eyes were hurting so much from my allergies. My eyelashes looked really sparse at first but I think that's because I was used to them being full on. To be honest I wish I still had them!

I've had them a few times, and they do take a bit of getting used to.

My only issue with them was that you do have to be careful if you sleep on your side and bury your head in the pillow like wot I do because individual lashes can twist & look very strange.

Also, if it's for holiday, you will have to stay out of the sea & chlorinated water, as they can weaken the glue.

Have you thought about LVL? Essentially eyelash perming & dying? I would go with that for holidays. Much safer.

They do fall out easily and my therapist told me they would only last a few days. As it happened they lasted nearly a fortnight but when some drop out on one side and not the other, it looks odd. Also you wouldn't be able to swim or splash about in the pool.

I had my eyelashes tinted but wouldn't bother again as my lashes are so short and fine it didn't notice.

I would try them before your holiday to see if you like them.

I had them and didn't like them.
Some fell out then others pointed in different directions,My eyes never felt clean..never again

Thanks all! Well, that's some cash saved then! I might try them another time but I always 'have' to sleep on my side... I might try dyeing them but they are pretty dark anyway. Merci!
