My Honest Lash & Crown Beauty False Lashes Review and How-To
Hey! I’m Alana, one of Collin’s sidekicks!
When I want to get dolled up and feel like a million bucks I love to throw on some gorgeous false eyelashes! As a disclaimer, I am by no means a beauty expert and I probably go without makeup over 50% of the time, but when the moment strikes this favorite product of mine makes me feel runway ready!
I always had long, volume filled lashes and hair, but after I had my son, all my thick locks went flat! I’ve contemplated getting eyelash extensions for over a year, but the frugal momma in me just can’t do it.
Plus, I have horrible allergies and could just picture myself rubbing the lashes right off my face, so I started doing some research for some of the best false lash extensions on the market. I wanted lashes I could do myself that I know would look great.
First, I tried individual lashes, which took a good two hours to apply. 😳 They looked pretty good, but who has hours to spend putting on lashes? Not me! Needless to say, that didn’t work out very well.
The next hopeful idea was eyelash strips, but let me tell you, I did not like how they looked so fake on my face. I wasn’t trying to go for a huge, unrealistic look. I wanted a little more than what mascara was giving me. Plus, finding a good false lash is pretty intimidating at times.
Finally, one day as I was scrolling through Facebook, I saw someone doing a Live video on these HOT new lashes! I was instantly drawn to how amazing they looked and how simple it seemed to put them on.
Plus, their name was “Lash & Crown Beauty.” Who doesn’t want to look and feel like a princess when you live in a house full of smelly boys? 😉
The lashes are vegan & cruelty-free, use 100% sterilized human hair, and can be used over 25 times before having to discard them and grab a new pair! There are three different styles: Enchanted, Ever After, and The Royal Ball. I have tried two of the three: Enchanted and Ever After. Ever After is my top favorite.
Ever After (shown above) has a beautiful 3D Wispy effect which creates a more natural look than most lashes. The lashes are on a clear, flexible band, which means you almost don’t even notice you’re wearing them.
When I first read that, I had no idea why that even mattered, but after wearing them myself, I totally understand why now! I can wear them for hours and not even realize they’re on due to the band being so comfortable and light. When I wear these lashes, I get so many compliments on how nice they are, and everyone thinks they’re actually mine.
On to my next favorite…
Enchanted (shown above). These are very comfortable but feature a black cotton band, which seems to be adored by many lash lovers. This is also the style Lash & Crown Beauty recommends for your first pair or the most subtle, natural appearance.
You’ll need some glue for them all too!
Before you start giving yourself the royal treatment, make sure you grab some lash glue as these lashes do NOT include the glue with their set. I used the company’s recommendation of KISS Strip Eyelash Adhesive with Aloe, and it gets the job done! In fact, KISS is the first lash glue I’ve used that hasn’t damaged my own lashes!
After doing tons of research, I’ve learned that you can do your full face of makeup and the lashes will stick after! I always thought you had to put your lashes on clean, non-makeup skin first and then do your face, but you don’t have to with these beauties.
Here are some other tips I’ve learned…
The photo above shows how you will receive your eyelashes. One is for your left eye, and one is for your right. To know which lash goes where turn the box so the lashes are curved the way you would wear them.
One thing I learned from watching Lash & Crown Beauty’s application video is that not all lashes are sized for everyone. You have to measure and trim them to fit your eye shape. Once you do that, these lashes look like they’re your own!
As you can see above, I only trimmed a small amount off my lashes. They have a little bit of stickiness, so you don’t have to use glue to place them onto your lash line to measure. What I do is trim the outer lash that extends past my eye, since it gives it a more natural look and added comfort. Always cut the outer corners, not the inside.
So how do you put them on? 🤔
I like to use these tweezers or an eyelash applicator. Then I hold the lashes and apply the glue – a little goes a long way, trust me! Wait 30-60 seconds before putting the lashes on after the glue to get the best adhesion to your skin and prevent them from slipping around during application.
Then, place the lashes as close to your natural line as you can. Where you place them is not the final spot (you can move them a bit but try to avoid that as much as possible). Start by getting the middle where you want it first, then line up the outer corner, and finally the inside.
Last, but not least – gently press your own lashes into the false lashes. This will blend them together and create a more natural look. Tada! You have gorgeous lashes! Note that you also don’t need mascara when wearing false eyelashes. (This will also help preserve them in the long run.)
Removing them is simple too!
All you need to remove your lashes is a little makeup remover (or I use a mixture of coconut oil and water). I just put a little on my finger and go across the lash band. Then I gently pull at the band to remove (never pull on the lashes). Once they’re off, I try to take off a little more of the remaining glue from the band so I have a fresh set for the next time.
As I mentioned above, these lashes can be reused over 25 times!!! 😱 My Ever After lashes have been used 15 times now, and they still look like I just opened them for the first time and another pair I’ve had for over a year since I don’t wear them too often.
The final results stun me every time!
If you’re looking to try out false lashes or are a beauty enthusiast, I highly recommend checking out Lash & Crown Beauty! You won’t be disappointed. Don’t forget to take a fun picture of you looking amazing with your Crown that comes with your Lash & Crown Beauty Lashes order! 💃
