Review: Natural yet dramatic false eyelashes – DJ Brand Handmade Eyelashes (DJ-12)

DJ Brand Handmade Eyelashes (DJ-12)

With so many parties/dinners at the end of the year, false lashes are one of the must-have items to add the impact right?

To be honest, I have been using mostly Inuovi lashes all the time, I have only tried these lashes in bulk once, but have not had a good experience.

I kinda changed my mind after trying DJ Brand Handmade Eyelashes.

DJ Brand Handmade Eyelashes (DJ-12) 10pairs/box

It comes in a box of 10 pairs, the design is DJ-12.

I am sure you have seen some like these with plastic quality, and I totally understand how it feels to have those on your eyes! They usually make you look trashy rather than dramatic.

DJ Brand Handmade Eyelashes (DJ-12) Up Close

I kinda enjoyed photographing them. It gives me some…errr..satisfaction.

But the close up here is just to show you how soft are they. It claims that it’s designed in Taiwan, but made in Vietnam.

Pulling it out from the box slowly, you can see 2 ends of thread.

Now what you should do is put it near your eye and snip the excess off.

Trim both end to get a natural length.

My color experiment with Urban Decay Book of Shadow Vol III: NYC with falsies.

However, I must admit that usually lashes come in bulk tend to have a softer bone and it is just not the perfect curvature for beginners if they attempt to wear.

But once you open your eye, it is subtle yet dramatic.

Can you feel how soft are they?

From the side view. Love the dramatic effects!

One thing I am not so satisfied is also the white bone, after sticking it, I had to use black liner to line it black so it looked more natural together along my eyes.

I could be wrong here… is it a trend to show the white bone?

Tips of wearing:
- Make sure that you glue the front and end tightly or else it might come off when you are partying and jumping.
- Soak cotton pad with remover and leave it on your lid for a while then tear off the lashes gently. It can be reused till the shape is gone!
- Even though if it is out of shape, you can snip the parts off then keep the good ones and use as partial lash to add volume.

A box of 10 retails at USD$13.55 on kkcenterhk.com. They ship world wide too.

p/s: I know what you might think of the site, but it is safe.  :P

Is there any particular technique to trim the ends? eg must be between the individual hairs?

If we trim wrongly will the whole row of lashies unravel? (hope u know what i mean)

Sorry, am completely new to false eyelashes.

They look great on you.

Looks good! I quite like them box lashes. I have a few styles that I really like and there are some that are not so good either. haha. don’t think white bone is a trend! I’ve only encountered that with the elf natural lashes which I color in with liquid liner first before applying
