The Knockout lashes are part of one the permanent lines, the Premium Luxe.

They provide medium length and volume. The lash band isn’t clear, but still very flexible and the lashes feel very lightweight throughout the wear.

I really like their versatility, because you can either go for a natural look or a more night appropriate one with them, depending from how natural or dramatic you go for with your make up. Continue reading

Model 21 Lashes # 6, # 08 and # 19 Lashes • Review

Some time ago I got the chance to try some lashes by Canadian brand Model 21 Lashes.

sparkleoflight model 21 lashes false makeup artist kit pack multi compact 19 08 6  review canada model21

I tried three different styles, the #6, #08 and #19 lashes.

Each pack of lashes contains 10 pairs, thing that I think is very convenient for users, especially professionals.

6

The #6 lashes can almost be considered corner lashes. They’re long (especially in the end) volumizing and provide a nice elongation to the eyes. They’re short compared to my lashline.

The glue excess is easily removable.

The #6 lashes have a nice criss cross pattern and are lightweight.

I recommend these corner lashes to people with medium/long lashes, because the transition from real to fake would otherwise be too evident; however, I like to use individual false lashes to help them blend in better.

Lash Storage Solutions! • House of Lashes

I want to share with you how I like to keep my lashes organized and how I do carry them around in my kit.

This article may be interesting for you, if you want to keep your false lashes organized in your vanity, in your travel bag and/or in your professional makeup kit.

Travel Bag/Purse

Everytime I go out with falsies on, I carry one of my Precious Gem Lash Cases (you can find it here ), so I can bring the glue, the tweezers and other little useful things, just in case. It’s even provided with a mirror.

It can be a good idea for travelling too. You can safely bring your favorite lashes and accessories and basically take no room in your suitcase or beautycase.

House of Lashes • The Mini Collection + Lash Adhesives Review

sparkleoflight mini collection house of lashes review iconic iconics boudoir siren wispy hol false fake

What I love about House of Lashes is not only the amazing quality of their lashes or the variety of styles they offer, but also the fact that they do really care about their customer satisfaction.

They decided to create a line, called the Mini Collection, featuring some of their most famous and iconic styles. It is dedicated to those who want to go for a more natural look for day wear and/or for those who need a smaller lash for a perfect fit and wear.

Here’s how the Mini Collection is described on their official website:

“Your favorite lashes have been miniaturized! Our Iconic®, Boudoir, Sirenand Wispy lashes have been scaled down by shortening the lash band and lash length to create a more comfortable fit for those with smaller eyes or for those who want a more natural look and feel from some of their favorite lashes! Each lash is structured like the original so you can get the same drama from your lashes while increasing the ease of daily wear“.

Iconic

One of the most famous HOL lash styles is definitely Iconic, described as showstopping lash that combines a dynamic V-formation effect with a criss-cross pattern.

“Our Iconic Mini’s are structured like the originals with the same dynamic v-formation and crisscross pattern that gives these lashes their flair that now feature shorter lashes for ease of daily wear”.

As you can see in the picture below, there’s an evident diffence, in terms of drama and dimensions, between the original Iconic lashes and the Iconic Mini.

The Iconic Mini are shorter and obviously result less dramatic, compared to the original ones, but the “wow” effect is guaranteed .

House of Lashes • Lash Story Pro Edition • Review

Some time ago I talked about a cool way to store false lashes, the Lash Story by House of Lashes.

Lash Story is a lash case that resembles a book and basically allows you to organize and store multiple pairs of lashes and save space.

Our chic Lash Story Pro holds 22 pairs of lashes and a special spot for two HOL Lash Adhesive bottles. A wonderful keepsake to add to your Lash Library, fitting for any avid lash collector or beauty enthusiast! With magnetic closures this book is easy to open, close and organize your lash stash. Made from paper and plastic products, fully recyclable.

This Pro Edition allows you to store up to 22 pairs of lashes and two full size lash glues. compared to the original Lash Story that can contain 10 pairs of lashes and two mini glues.

As i said in the first Lash Story post, I love false lashes and they’re stable items in my kit. Lash boxes are pretty, but take too much space and, since most of them tends to look alike, it can happen to lose quite a lot time to find the style I’m looking for and order them again.
