Ardell Fashion Lash - Demi Wispies

I bought some Ardell Wispies on a whim after hearing good things about them and with them being very different from the usual spiky, separated false lashes I usually wear. I also don't usually wear much eye make up - a bit of eyeliner and mascara and I'm good to go so I thought why not mix it up a bit?

On this pic I've got on:
  • Rimmel Colour Rush Mono Eyeshadow - 214 Matte Black
  • MAC Pigment - Family Crest
  • MAC Smolder Eye Kohl - Black
  • No7 Exquisite Curl Mascara
  • Rimmel Flash Eyeliner in Black

The MAC pigment looks a lot more impressive in the flesh, it gives a subtle gold shimmer (I applied it wet over the Rimmel shadow for a bit of depth). But my god it's messy! I also know zilch when it comes to contouring or blending shadow and which brushes to use for what, I'd like to learn but I wear eyeshadow so infrequently it's not really that high on my priorities. I do get major envy when I see really well-done eye make up though!

Overall I was really pleased with these lashes - they look fairly natural (as natural as inch long perfectly curled lashes can do!) without looking boring or pointless, the invisible band is great and the price of these lashes was good. I sort of have two issues with Ardell lashes though:

1. The lash glue is in a tear open cardboard packet that can't be resealed, so if I want to take glue out with me in case one frees itself during the night I have to take a different glue with me. I'd rather the lashes were cheaper and I knew i had to use my Duo from the off.

2. The fact they're made from 100% human hair. Now, I'm not especially squeamish - I mean, I wore woven extensions for years and still dabble with clip ins from time to time, but I really do have to ask the question whose hair is this and whereabouts the hair is from? At least with extensions you know it's head hair :-)

But despite that moan - I'll definately be buying these lashes again and I'd actually like to try some of the other Ardell lash styles as they look really good.


  1. I love Ardell lashes and grab the unusual ones whenever I see them in TK Maxx...or make a sneaky ebay purchase!

    I really like the demi wispies but my one problem with this style is that I can only really wear them once as they are pretty delicate and I'm well...not!

    I'd definitely recommend duo glue for these lashes too - I never use the stuff that comes with :)

  2. I didn't know you could get random ones in TK Maxx - the one near me has quite a bit beauty bit as well, I'll have to have a root round!

  3. aw this is a lovely look & i'll definitely be keeping an eye out for these! :) x

  4. These lashes look amazing! They are definately better than the seperated ones that i get as you are right, they can look a bit too fake. Its a shame about the glue though i would have rathered it come with a lid than a seal that is broken once broken!

    Human hair? Where can i purchase these?

  5. Gurpreet - if you're in the UK, you can pick them up in Boots. If not, you can get them on Ebay and online, I'm pretty sure it's an American brand?

  6. I love falsies too!! That's awesome that you're from the UK I've always wanted to go! I'm new to blogger so feel free to check out my site as I blog about anything that's of interest. Have a good day!! [follow me and I'll follow you!!]
