As of May 12, 2011 Katy Perry became the first artist in history to spend a whole year in the top 10 Billboard Hot 100. She has the fifth largest Twitter following in the world and is known for her creative flare. Perry is a lover of false lashes and wore them throughout her world tour. In January, we brought you news that she was launching her own line in collaboration with her favourite lash brand, Eylure. Well, now they are here! The lashes are handmade and 100% natural and reusable.
For beginners, there is the Sweetie Pie look, which is subtle, but does the trick. Oh Honey creates a vintage look which is great for day into night wear. Cool Kitty is the perfect look to wear for a night out and is Katy’s personal favourite. If you are daring try Oh, My! The double lashes are lightweight but boy, do they make a statement.
Zoe Gruss: I tried out Sweetie Pie lashes. At first I was hesitant because I’ve never applied false lashes onto my own eyes (I’m just a mascara junkie). So when Saturday night came, I nervously followed the instructions and boom! There were my new lashes. Comfortable and easy to wear. My new fave beauty product!
This is what the other Falsies had to say about their lash experiences:
Tina Reddell: I was lucky enough to try out the Oh, Honey lashes. Let me start off by saying that this is the first time I have ever tried fake lashes so I was quite nervous! It wasn’t as easy as I had hoped for but I am sure practice makes perfect. I struggled a bit to make them fit perfectly and get them as close to my lash line as possible, but with the help of an ear bud I finally succeeded. I have to admit that my eyes went from drab to fab in one second!
Kauther Cerff: I tried the Katy Perry Lashes, and Oh My was an understatement! Even though it’s a full thick set of lashes it wasn’t difficult to apply at all. The glue was easy to apply due to the convenient little applicator stick. The removal process was painless and hassle free. Even after a night of partying they remained exactly where I placed them. I’d definitely recommend this product if you’re going out for a ladies’ night and you really want to give your eyes a sexy pop.
Irene Stewart: I am a firm believer that if you have the right mascara, you can pretty much do without any other make-up. So I was excited to try false eyelashes for the first time – but also somewhat sceptical – after all, experiment enough and you will find the right mascara which will do the job for you, surely? And with none of that fiddling about with glue and the like. Well, it was fiddly (although Katy Perry’s tip to use an earbud to help place the lashes is excellent) and I looked a little odd with such long lashes, but it was certainly fun! And they certainly made an impact. I will definitely be adding Katy Perry’s Lashes to my make-up arsenal.
Katy Perry Lashes retail for R79.95 and are available from Dis-Chem, Clicks and Foschini.
