Heroine Make Impact Eyelash 01 Natural Long

Kiss Me recently provided me with several of their Heroine Make Impact Eyelash designs to try out. I'm a complete novice at applying false eyelashes, having only worn them twice in my life, once for my wedding photo shoot in December and the second time was at my wedding in March. On both occasions, it was the makeup artist who put them on me. As I usually wear spectacles every day, false eyelashes are also impractical as they would keep brushing up against my specs. But since it's the weekend, I decided to play around with the lashes. I started out with the most natural looking set, which is 01 Natural Long.

The application instructions.

Each set comes with a small tube of eyelash glue.

I did my makeup today with mainly RMK products such as the Spring Modern Eyes 01 Goldish Blue, Powder Foundation EX101, Super Basic Liquid Concealer EX-01 and Mix Colors for Lips 03 Natural Orange. I also used Paul & Joe Face Color 07, Protective Foundation Primer UV and Eyebrow Pencil Duo 01.

After applying the eyeshadows and curling my lashes, I fixed on the false lashes. I did not use any eyeliner or mascara after that. Putting on the lashes definitely takes lots of practice. I know some ladies use tweezers and some use special applicators but I just used my fingers to fix one end and then gently press down the rest of the lash as close to my lashline as possible. It took a few tries to get it right, including having to apply some extra glue at the ends but once the lashes were fixed on, they stayed put without falling down for the next 8 hours that I wore them.

Overall, the lashes were quite comfortable to wear and at the end of the night, they also peeled off easily without much tugging. The only slight discomfort that I experienced was after a few hours, the inner end of the lashes on my left eye started to poke my eyelid but that could have been because I did not place it or trim it correctly.

The lashes do help make my eyes look much more awake but they are strictly a weekend-only look for me as the length is too long to pass for natural lashes. You can find Heroine Make Impact Eyelash at the "Kawaii Corner" in Watsons where they retail for S$9.90.

Hi haru, I think you need to curl your real lashes first before you stick the false eyelashes on, so that there is no gap between them. I can see they are separated from the close-up picture. Hehe....

OMG, those lashes are to die for! I need to go to my local Japanese market and see if they have these. I've never tried false lashes before but always thought they would be super fun to try out. I have the straightest lashes ever and nobody can see them until I curl + add mascara.

i think you look much better with the lashes. make your eyes brighter. :):):) would suggest you use it more often! :)

hi Serene,
That may be the case but I think ultimately, I am still more comfortable with mascara instead of false eyelashes as I still don't really like the feeling of something stuck on my lashes.

hi Sabrina,
Same here, my lashes are typical Asian lashes in that they are sparse and straight. Luckily someone invented eyelash curlers, mascaras and false lashes!

hi Beautyontheway,
I did curl my lashes first, but I didn't apply mascara, which is usually what helps to keep the real lashes close to the false ones, as I wanted to see how the false lashes performed without any mascara.

indeed very pretty. i'm hopeless in putting on falsies too & don't have the patience to practise.

I like your overall look, very fresh and clean. I don't think i will be spending time on falsies esp. when i know i am not the patient type and that i am afraid of it dropping when i am outside...but i love it on you! :)

the lashes enlarged your eyes, you should use it more often! false lashes are on my HG. Solves the problem of streaky and runny mascaras without breaking the bank.

Hi Haru
Love the look on you, very pretty!
Your eyebrows also look great, I might try the P&J one too now, I've been using the Shu Uemura one for about ten years now. The colour is very natural and the shape is lovely! Any tips?

hi Fi,
Actually I'm not liking the Paul & Joe eyebrow pencil that much and will not re-purchase it. The only reason why I have it is because it was part of a makeup set of a few items. The colours (grey and greenish brown) don't look as natural as I would prefer them to be. I've heard much better comments about the Shu Uemura pencil, although it's more difficult to sharpen compared to the P&J version.

Hi Haru

Ah I might stick with the stone gray colour I've been using then. I remember going to request a sharpening and they had to lend me one whilst they got the specialist to sharpen it. I then gave up and just sharpened it with a normal pencil sharpener which works just as well. Seems to waste less to, as I remember watching the lady in Tokyo shave off a lot of the pencil using a craft knife to sharpen it.
