Hello loves, today is the day I share a fun beauty hack that is truly not my own. I have to acknowledge the two gorgeous and inspiring ladies who told me about these lashes. Shout out to Blessing & Alla - my two amazing friends who BOTH shined a light on something pretty fantastic. These ladies introduced me to a spot to get your lashes for a third of the cost. It was a website I hadn't thought to check and these ladies swore by it that I truly HAD to check it out for myself.
Ali Express, a company known alongside Wish for its wholesale prices without the necessity to purchase in bulk. It is an online website I had known about for a while through my own experiences, but always dismissed the beauty side of it. Having purchased a few items from sister companies, I was always hesitant to continue this relationship for the lack of quality (due to cost parallels). Nonetheless, I had two women in my life with whom I trust completely, swear by Ali Express' lashes...so I had to take the plunge. Today's post is to tell you about all the ins and outs about Ali Express' lashes (a company that can sometimes seem a little scammy). Also, I know that is not a real word, and I am okay that I made one up for the context of this post.
These lashes very in cost, but range to about $2-4...YUP. it is true and the best part is, they actually work. If you have sensitive eyes, the band width is a little thicker (much like luxury lashes, for the amount of lashes to adhere to its line). Sometimes, I find the corners to poke a little bit (much like lashes can) but look beautiful and for the price you cannot go wrong. If you are needing these lashes in a timely fashion...think again. Unfortunately, due to their manufacturing, these lashes can take a month or two before arriving.
Cost: $2-4.00 CAN
Pros: Cost efficiency / their luxury look and feel Cons: The shipping because they come from China, these lashes can take up to a month if not longer to arrive. I suggest buying in bulk!
Down below I have attached the lashes I have personally bought with some pictures of me wearing the various lashes! Click the order numbers of each lash for direct purchase. At the end of this blog post - I tag the direct links to others that were purchased but not photographed...yet!
