To cut a long story short, Ardell Demi Wispies are one of my favourite lash styles and purple is one of my favourite colours so when I spotted these Color Impact lashes I had to try them!
The theory is that the colour purple will enhance brown, hazel and green eyes. They also do other colours to enhance different eye colours but since my eyes are green I went for these ones. I've heard the premise about using colours other than black to bring out specific eye colours with mascara but I've never really tried it.
The picture above shows the purple in the lashes quite well but it's actually a bit more subtle than that in normal light as I think the pics below show:
You can just see a little flash of purple when the light hits them which I think it better than full on purple lashes - I wore these on a normal night out, not fancy dress! I can't say I felt that the colour really enhanced my own eye colour but they were nice, easy to use lashes in a style that I like and the purple in them is definitely subtle enough that other's probably won't notice the colour - I think I'll be sticking with my black Demi Wispies in future, I wanted to put mascara on to blend my own lashes in a bit more but didn't want to take the colour out of them!
I bought these from Ebay as I'm not sure if they're being sold in the UK (they might be, I'm not sure!) but you can find more out about the Color Impact range on the Ardell website
P.S. As you can see from these pics my hair is really light at the minute - it's the look I wanted as I've always hankered after white blonde hair but never got that light at the hairdressers. I think I'll be ready for a colour change to something a bit more natural in the not too distant future though
