Back in September, I got an e-mail from Angela from Velour Lashes in regards to me trialing and reviewing their line of false eyelashes.
Being a huge falsies junkie (I own a whole tubful of false eyelashes!) and after doing some research, I was very interested in trying out Velour Lashes.
The reason why it took me a long time to actually film this video, was because I wanted to really try out the lashes properly so that I am able to give a thorough and accurate review.
Velour Lashes are based in Toronto, Canada and founded by two best friends Mabel and Angela, who share a love for fashion. Their mission is to instill in young women a sense of elegance and prominence when wearing their lashes and mostly importantly, to have fun!
So what sets Velour Lashes apart from other false eyelashes?
Well each pair of Velour Lashes are individually hand-made with 10% authentic mink fur! This makes the lashes long-lasting (can be used up to 25 times), lightweight and comfortable.
And the best part is that it’s completely cruelty-free (Yay!!) because the fur is gently brushed from live minks and then sterialised to ensure safe and non-allergenic use.
Because of the real fur, you should not apply mascara on top of the lashes or soak them in any kind of liquid as it will make them lose their style, shape and curl.
Off topic but aren’t minks the cutest little critters ever?!
The pair of lashes that I picked to try are called ‘T Dot Ohhh!’ which is a cute tribute to the city of Toronto where the girls are from.
These lashes caught my attention because of its unusual and unique two-toned effect where the inner section is more dramatic than the ends. The design is also said to be inspired Taylor Swift’s signature winged look.
And here’s some photos of how the lashes look on me. I love how they help open up the eyes and gives off a dolly-eyed look. They are fun and flirty yet also innocent and cute
Although they are very curly and full, the mink fur also gives them a natural quality. They are very comfy to wear and feel very light – almost like you’re not wearing false eyelashes!
Mabel and Angela were also kind enough to send me a second pair of Velour Lashes in the style of ‘You Complete Me’ (pictured above) to give away to one lucky subscriber!
