Ebay Bargains Review 1 // Ebay False Lahes & Glue

Ebay False Lashes and Glue
Ebay False Lashes and Glue

Hello lovelies! I've got a confession to make. I think I'm addicted to Ebay. When I say addicted to Ebay I mean scouring their site for hours looking for the perfect bargain(s). Over the past few months I've slowly been collecting goodies which are mainly from China. If I'm lucky, the products will have free shipping too. Can anyone guess how much these lashes cost me? £1. That's right £1. If you guessed correctly I'm assuming you've spotted these bad boys before! I haven't worn falsies for a few years now due to the fact that they started costing a fortune and also after an incident when I turned up to uni with one stuck in my hair. It turns out that I just can't be trusted to put them away properly. As these are so cheap, I won't feel as guilty if I lose one. Plus you get ten pairs in the box. Although the box doesn't come with glue, you can also buy a tube for £1 too. Lets see how I got on.

Lashes:
There was a wide selection of lengths/volume etc. so I decided to go for a more natural looking set. They arrived pretty quickly, I'm sure it was within a week of ordering. They were posted in an envelope and were contained in a white box. Although it wasn't well wrapped, you pay for what you get. As always I had to trim the lashes to size (old shrimp eye comes to mind). If you got that tv reference, well done! Don't be expecting these to be extremely high quality but at the same time, they do feel very soft. If the lashes are looked after and cleaned after each use, they should last a long time especially when you have ten in a box. These look beautiful on and are a great alternative for that summer smudgy mascara look. I'm definitely interested in trying some of the other sets now! I'll leave a link here incase you want to check them out.

Glue:
Ok, so did anyone see that article about cheap products containing toxic ingredients? Well I was a little anxious that this would give me some weird reaction and I'd come out looking like the fly. The ingredients don't mention anything alarming and my eyes haven't swelled up as of yet. The glue is very strong. So strong in fact that I wore these on a sunny day and my eyelid ended up stuck open as the heat must have made the glue tacky. I took that as a good sign but maybe I should have seen it as a warning. After the third time I'd worn these, I noticed that I had glue residue on my lashes even though I had thoroughly washed my face everyday. I even used eye makeup remover and still no luck. I tried my best and a week later the glue was still there. It's almost been two weeks now and I have eventually removed all the glue. I know the tube states that it is waterproof but there is a difference between water proof and permanent. I'm starting to think this is made from super glue which is worrying. I'm not even going to leave a link as I don't want to encourage any of you to buy it.

Overall I'd definitely buy the lashes again but I'm staying well clear of the glue. I would have posted a photo to show what the lashes looked like on but I don't fancy another week of scrubbing my eyes. Maybe once I've bought proper lash glue, then I'll update this post. I just thought I'd put this warning out as soon as possible. I think I've learned my lesson with bargain products although it probably hasn't curbed my Ebay addiction as of yet!

I'm interested in hearing about your experiences with these products? Let me know what you think!

  3. These actually look like really nice lashes, not too false-looking but still enough.
    I know what you mean with the glue, I've tried several and had similar experiences but my favourite is the eyelur lashfix so I just stick to that (haha no pun intended)
    I'm definitely going to go and order some of these lashes now, thanks for letting us know about such a fabulous bargain! x

  15. wow so cheap! I have only tried falsies a couple of times, but I never seem to get on with them. I think the first I didn't trim properly so I felt like I had a spike in the corner of my eye the whole night - doh! Second time I just couldn't get them to stick, maybe I should of tried your glue ;). How about a falsies application tutorial? I am in need ;)

    1. Ooo that sounds painful! Haha yeah if you need something to get them to stick then this glue will definitely do the trick! I usually go for the hope for the best kind of method but I'll consider doing a tutorial once I get myself a replacement tube

  35. I have very sensitive eyes and I am afraid to wear false lashes. On my wedding day my makeup artist tried applying some, but I started crying immediately, so she had to remove them. I am glad that these work for you though, at 1£ they`re such a bargain.

  42. I love eBay and have bought quite a lot of things sent from China, it's a bit hit and miss though but generally I'm happy with the products and delivery. A couple of things haven't arrived though but I contacted the sellers and they have given me refunds which is really good! I haven't tried any cosmetic products though from eBay sellers as I'm a bit more wary of these!

    But I hope you'll find a good lash glue soon, I'm so excited to see your photo showing how this falsies looks like when you wear it, Sophie!

  48. This is a great little post. I'm a false lash addict purely because I hate how much effort it is washing off 3 or more coats of mascara haha. I never thought to buy lashes from ebay because I didn't think they'd be any good. I just might now. Also the DUO lash adhesive is the one I use and it's really good in case you were thinking of getting it :)
