WARNING : HEAVY IMAGE POST
So, everybody knows I'm a big fan of false eyelashes. I literally can't get enough of them. I tend to hoard false lashes at times. So when KKCenterHK offered to sponsor FREE false lashes for review purposes, I agreed immediately!
Before going on with the review, let me give you an idea about what KKCenterHK is all about. This site is Hong Kong based and caters to beauty enthusiasts. They offer a wide range of different beauty products like false lashes, stick on nails, lip stickers, wigs, makeup brushes, and a whole lot more. They ship world wide and their site's pretty friendly to use. Check out the FAQs on their page.
Moving onto the sponsored item they sent... It took about two weeks to get to the Philippines. I had already prepared myself to pick up the package at the local post office but instead the package got delivered to my doorstep. I was pleasantly surprised that I only had to pay P40 which I didn't really mind at all.
I saved the stamps for my lola's (grandmother) stamp collection. I remember how surprised she was that I was now receiving packages from outside the country.
The sponsored item turned out to be false lashes with the code ES - A510. It came in a lovely shiny black carton box that was wrapped in bubble wrap.
Here's a photo of the 10 pairs of lashes that were sent to me. Aren't they lovely? The photo below is a close up view on the lashes. They are quite spiky and dense. This particular design falls under their LUXURIANT catergory. The A510's are also referred to as the Luxuriant Spiky Tailed Eyelashes which I find quite fitting since it truly described the lovely design on the lashes. This design is relatively new. It came out in December 2011.
Now onto the review proper.
Shipping / Packaging : ★★★★★
I'm impressed that it took only about 2 weeks for the item to get to the Philippines. Another plus is the fact I didn't have to go get it myself at the local post office. Thumbs up to KKCenterHK for wrapping the item in bubble wrap. It shows that they care about the item's safety during transit.
Design : ★★★★★
I'm a sucker for full black falsies that offer so much drama to a whole look so I'm definitely loving this particular design. I think the spiky tails add even more emphasis and volume to my own lashes. Another thing I like about the design is its thin black strip that's bendable just the right way. It isn't too stiff nor is it too limp. It's easy to maneuver into place over your natural lash line. Definitely a plus!
Comfort : ★★★★☆
Since these are full lashes, they did feel a bit "heavy" at first but you eventually get used to it. Again I like that the band/strip is flexible enough and doesn't end up poking the fleshy areas on my eyes. I don't really think these are everyday lashes that you can go on wearing for long hours, but they're definitely party lashes - lashes you'd wear to special nights out. Or when you're just craving for attention!
Overall : ★★★★☆
I'm really loving these lashes. I'd recommend them (& the site) to those girls out there going for a more adventurous look with false lashes, those who aren't afraid to step out of their comfort zone and go for full on, super dark, spiky tailed falsies. Want attention? These are definitely for you! Good luck with the pretty eye batting!
