Day-to-day I’m not generally the false lash kinda gal, however, if I’m heading ‘out-out’ I may 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. 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 lashes 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. Looking downwards into the mirror I then place the strip into position using tweezers. 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 YouTube videos of other bloggers wearing their fake lashes ‘under’ their natural lashes.
This is quite tricky and not something I have patience for. However, from what I’ve seen 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.

Hi Sam. I’ve been having lash extensions for the last few months and although they can be costly and time consuming to have applied, in my opinion they are worth the effort. x
Ooo you’ll have to send me a photo! Are your own lashes surviving underneath? I’m getting a lash lift soon, I used to have it done every 6 weeks but not been lately x
