Fleur de Force for Eylure and #OOTN

fleur de force for eylure review
Ever since my first foray into false eyelashes á la 'Eye Candy' (review here btw), I've been completely converted to falsies for nights out. I have however, yet to risk a more natural falsie for a day look, if I find a suitable enough lash and I get a little braver with my day time make up then maybe.
Back in September my friends and I decided we were all going to go to Athlone for a good aul night on the town. We decided to go all out, threw on some Cocoa Brown and false nails, got the hair done in Peter Mark, and we were going to top it all off with some falsies. A last minute decision, which lead to a quick dash to Boots. I had my eye on these 'Fleur De Force' by Eylure lashes from the moment I saw them on Instagram. The packaging just screamed out to me, and the 3/4 length sounded ideal, especially since I'm still an eyelash newbie. 3 for 2 was on in Boots at the time so I picked up a few packs of the lashes, as did my friends.

The lashes themselves are so pretty. I think they're just the perfect size and add a lovely bit of flare to your own lashes without being too overwhelming. Especially if like me, you're still pretty new to the whole lash thing. The 3/4 length was perfection because it meant I could apply them straight away without worrying if they would be too long and because this was a last minute decision, we didn't have a scissors handy for any potential trimming. The lash is shorter on the inside and longer on the outside, which adds just the right amount of drama to your look. I found them easy to apply and they stayed put the whole night. They complimented my overall look for the night quite well and when it came to taking them off at the end of the night it was a bittersweet moment, I was loving how bouncy and long my lashes looked but sleeping was high on the agenda so off they went.
My friends all bought the 3/4 lashes too and were equally as impressed. The short length was the real winner because, like me, they suck at applying lashes too. Their words, not mine.

before and after fleur eyelashes
Kay so these aren't exactly the best before and after pictures, but I knew I wanted to blog about these lashes the morning after our night out. I didn't have my blog camera and I didn't really think about it at the time, but yano, Snapchat to the rescue. As you can see, they really added a lot of definition to my natural lash, the main focus being on the end of the eyelid. They're cute and flirty and I think they're the ultimate ~girly girl lash. I also thought I'd throw in a little #OOTN, we decided to wear cat ears out and it was honestly the best thing we ever decided to do. It was really funny and so many people came up to us to tell us how much they loved them. My dress is an old one from Topshop.
Have any of you used the Fleur de Force by Eylure lashes? What did you think?

I don't really wear lashes, only on really big nights out or special occasions but I think I will get these the next time I want some! I love how they're 3/4 length because I always have to trim them usually! x
