As an avowed lover of lush false lashes, I couldn’t be any happier with my recent purchases of Koko Lashes in Ariel, Koko, and Foxy.
Hello, lovely handmade lashes!
After reading about theses lashes on Mai’s recap of the recent PHAMExpo on Portrait of Mai, I knew I had to get these lashes that she compared to the much more expensive ones from House of Lashes. I love the dramatic false lashes I see all over the place on Instagram, but I really don’t want to pay over $10 for falsies. I was able to find Koko Lashes for $6 a pair at Lady Moss and they got to me in about 5 days.
These are sturdy lashes with a thicker than typical strip that is flexible, which is nice because it makes the application process easier. These are not heavy at all, which is a great quality in a dramatic false lash.
Every single time I look at the photos for Ariel lashes I start singing “Under The Sea” in the voice of Sebastian the Crab. Unda the sea we off da hook!
The Ariel lashes are fluttery and double layered, like little butterflies. Of the three I tried, these were the most light weight.
Koko lashes are really pretty and whispy. They add nice length and some volume.
Foxy lashes are seriously foxy, and I have to say they’re my favorites of the three I tried. Very dramatic, they add both volume and length.
They aren’t for wimps – these are some seriously false lashes!
If you need help applying false lashes, I have a few tutorials up for your lash convenience, including a photo step-by-step and a video tutorial. When I say if I can learn how to apply false lashes, anyone can, it’s the truth! No one was more nervous or clumsy than me and I avoided lashes for years due to traumatic experiences. Then, I started giving myself power talks before I applied false lashes, and eventually got enough practice to where I literally just dab glue on the strips, let the glue get tacky, and stick ’em on. Nothing is impossible!
My Final Thoughts: Koko lashes are nothing short of fierce and I am thrilled with my purchase. With the shape of my eyes I need dramatic lashes and these are just what I was looking for – Foxy and I are new BFFs!
