Lashes are a huge part of the gyaru makeup, although sadly they are harder to get your hands on nowadays (well, ones that are dramatic for our gyaru looks in any case!). I’ve been trying my best to experiment with non-branded ones, so I was really intrigued by what they had at Lashine and decided to give them a go. So here’s my review on the false lashes I received!
High Quality – S21
I was pleasantly surprised by how soft these lashes were (to give you an idea… They are the same softness as Diamond Lash Angel Eye) so it was incredibly easy to put on and wear. It could easily bend around my finger to make it more flexible, and it also meant that it was gentler on my sensitive eyelids. The soft lashes make it perfect for substyles such as onee gyaru or the sweeter styles of gyaru like himekaji, and I wore it for my Molang-inspired outfit (which was definitely leaning on the cuter side haha).
Ideal for: onee gyaru, himekaji, cuter/kawaii styles
Overall rating: 5/5
Most Natural – S01
I was actually quite surprised that the lash band for “Most Natural” was quite stiff, especially considering that it was supposed to give a more natural look. This made it quite hard for me to put on as it didn’t bend as well around my eye shape, but once they were on they were fine and didn’t give me any discomfort. They were very long, but I found they didn’t really curve that much so you can’t really see them in photos… So instead of doing an onee gyaru look like I had planned, I went for a more old-school look by amping up the eyeliner.
Ideal for: Old-school (if you amp up the eyeliner)
Overall rating: 2 / 5
Most Fresh – S36
These lashes were very soft, much like “High Quality”, but shorter in width. They were equally as long and fluffy which makes it great for some styles of gyaru. I wore it with an agejo outfit, but I think it’ll work with any kyabajo (hostess) inspired outfit and himekaji… You could probably also get away with doing old-school gyaru as long as you amp up the other aspects of gyaru makeup e.g. I skipped out on lower lashes for this but instead put on a load of eyeliner and emphasised my contour.
Ideal for: Old-school gyaru, kyabajo, agejo, and himekaji
Overall rating: 4 / 5
All of the outer packaging is the same, which made it a bit tricky for me to figure out which pair of lashes was which. Luckily, though, they have a little sticker inside the pack with the eyelash number on it.
All of the lashes I tried were soft in texture which meant that it was perfect for my eczema-prone eyelids, and with careful cleaning, can be worn multiple times.
They are not as dramatic as gyaru-brand lashes such as Diamond Lash, but they work all the same by either amping up the eyeliner or other aspects of the gyaru makeup (such as contour). So yes, you can make them work with gyaru!
I would also like to point out that each pair of lashes was $4.99 (around £4), which is a REALLY good price especially because you can wear them multiple times.
Out of all of the lashes, my favourite definitely was the first (the High Quality ones). They were just so soft but incredibly dramatic which makes it perfect for himekaji, onee gyaru, and other cute styles.
