Today, I’m going to be sharing my thoughts on Threads & Co. false lashes. Day to-day I’m not generally the false lash girl, however if I’m heading ‘out out’ I will either add a few individual lashes or a strip lash depending on how I feel! I’m new to this brand so I thought I would give them a go! I’m always interested in trying different brands and so I was excited to try these strip lashes from Threads Beauty Co. For these photos I am wearing the Charleston lashes.
The packaging is bright red which stands out on the shelf! Neat little boxes with a tube lash adhesive included inside. With Other brands I’ve used the lash adhesive is often a separate purchase. I have two pairs, both the Red Cherri lashes and the Charleston Lashes. Personally the Red Cherri are a bit too bold for me but definitely the Charleston are a more wearable option. I’m wearing these in the photos. As you can see they give a more natural look which is more me!
is mostly down to trial and error and everyone has their own way of doing it. For me, I find the easiest way to apply this type of lash is to place a hand mirror on my lap and then looking downwards into the mirror place the strip into position using tweezers. I just find it easier this way. I squeeze a tiny amount of adhesive onto the lash tray, wait a minute or so for it to become tacky, I then pick up the lash with tweezers and slide the strip end through the adhesive so that way only a tiny amount is used.
Recently I’ve seen You Tube videos of other bloggers wearing their fake lashes ‘under’ their natural lashes. This is quite tricky and not something I have patience for! I tried it a while ago but ended up almost going bonkers! From what I’ve seen though, it does give a nice natural look so might be worth another attempt when I have more time (and patience).
The adhesive works well and held the lashes in place so no issues there. It dries clear which is always good! I actually really like these lashes and would definitely wear them for a night out in future.
