There are so many different lash brands to choose from, with lash styles to suit every eye shape and budget. I used to wear false lashes every single day in my early twenties which ended up ruining my natural lashes so I now prefer to wear lashes for special occasions or when I want my makeup to look a little bit more glam. I love a good glam lash style but sometimes I don’t want to look like I’m wearing false lashes so I prefer a clear banded lash like the The Vintage Cosmetic Company Gracie False Lashes.
The Vintage Cosmetic Company Gracie False Lashes are just £6 and they’re made with synthetic fibres which is ideal if you prefer a cruelty free lash style. Although the Gracie style is definitely more subtle, and natural, the Vintage Cosmetic Company do have lots of other lash styles, with more dramatic and glamorous styles to choose from depending on what you’re looking for.
They also come with a mini tube of lash glue, and they can be reused 2-4 times, but I find you get more like six wears if you look after them carefully. Lashes with a clear lash band do tend to be more fragile as they don’t have the thick cotton band most lashes have, but these lashes are easy to remove and look after.
The Vintage Cosmetic Company Gracie False Lashes Review
“A saving ‘Gracie’ for your lashes! Taking you from day through to night, our Gracie False Strip Lashes are all about giving your lashes length. From low-key to lengthy, some darker shadow and some shimmer can add more drama when night falls.”
- 1cm in length
- Synthetic lashes
- Includes adhesive
- Reusable (2-4 times)
What I really like about the Gracie style is that the lashes are in tiny little clusters slightly spaced up across the clear band. I like that this looks really natural against your natural lashes, and as they’re slightly tapered they blend really well. The lashes increase in length slightly from the inner to outer corner and they give a really pretty doll-like effect to the lashes, without looking like you’re wearing false lashes.
