Feelin’ Feline Fierce Wearing Katy Perry Lashes by Eylure
Katy Perry: pop star extraordinaire, cat lady, false fringe aficionado.
Yup, you read that correctly. Katy Perry has a line of false lashes, appropriately named Katy Perry Lashes, which are both 1) super affordable ($6.99 each) and 2) all kinds of awesome.
I was a little surprised when I found out about them, even though they’ve been out for a while, but I guess they just hadn’t crossed my radar until now.
I wish they had.
There are four new styles out now for spring — Feline Fierce, which I’m wearing in the top pic; Punk Princess; Banging Beauty and Lovely Lolita — and I’m infatuated with them all. I like them just about as much as the false lashes I usually wear when I wear false lashes, the $16 33 Lashes by MAC.
Compared to the 33s, these cost less than half as much ($6.99 versus $16), and because they’re carried at most drugstores and Ultas, they’re very easy to find (sometimes I don’t want to trek all the way to the mall).
These new spring styles also have something of an edge to them… Nothing too crazy, but I like the range of options Katy gives, from the more dramatic Feline Fierce (perfect for a night on the town) to the more natural Lovely Lolita, which still has some kick.
That one is my favorite pair from the spring line because it’s fine for daytime but still only about two seconds away from hitting the club.
Not that I hit the club very often (*cough*, anymore, *cough*).
Also in the plus column, these are 100 percent natural, and they don’t look plastic or fake, unlike some other drugstore brands that shall remain nameless…
But I think what really makes them stand out is how easy they are to apply, especially for someone (like me) who’s normally all thumbs when it comes to applying false lashes, and especially full strip styles like these.
No drama at all.
Seriously, they’re a breeze. I just run a tiny amount of the adhesive, which comes with them, by the way, along the lash strip (I’m serious. You only need a tad.), wait for about 30 seconds, look down into a mirror, set the lashes directly on top of my natural lashes, and squeeeeeeeze the false lashes together with my real ones.
They even comfortable! — even the dramatic styles, which is unusual, I think. Most of the time with other false lashes I’ve tried, in particular super long, thick lashes, I get a headache after a while from how heavy they feel (I’m very sensitive about anything near my eyes), and I end up having to take them off halfway through the day.
These, on the other hand, don’t feel heavy at all.
They’re a great drugstore find. I only wish I’d discovered them sooner.
I definitely plan to stock up on Lovely Lolita next time I see them at CVS or Ulta. They’re also available online.
