Ardell False Lashes Review

27

If you have been following my blog, you would know how much I lurrrrrv Ardell lashes! Not only do they come in all sorts of styles, they are so painless to apply and work just as well as MAC and Shu Uemura. They are also super durable (a pair can last me at least 2 weeks) and only retail from $4 to $6 for a pair. Now that’s what I call a steal!

Below are some of the lashes that I have tried and recommend:


My recs for Asian lashes would be #109 and #110 (not shown here). They both give a really natural effect without being too over the top.

If you want a more dramatic effect, I would recommend #131 and #120. For bottom lashes, try #112 or #116 for a more dramatic effect. Below are some pictures of me rocking Ardell lashes:

Ardell is currently available only in the US but if you reside outside of the US and are interested in getting some lashes, I will be more than happy to get my hookup to get them for you. You can also check out Madame Madeline for more pics and descriptions.

  1. Hi,

    Can I know what digital camera you use? It captures the colors of your makeup so vividly. Thanks ^^

  2. Hi Phyllis

    Can you please explain to me what exactly eye creams are for, because I am 23 and i don’t have any bags under my eyes. although i do have a bit of darkness I am not sure if I need to buy an eye cream or not.

    Please help.

    Thanks

  3. Hey Phyliis.

    I thought I’d just let you know that Ardell Lashes ARE available outside of the US. You can get them at any good beauty supply store, in most countries. I’m in Australia and they are easily available.

  4. can i request you do a certain look?
    i want to see MAC’s new Cultured look (one of the strange hybrid looks) :)

  5. hi, could you please do a review on moisturizers with spf?? I’m trying to find a good one for the summer. Thanks a bunch! And I love your blog! I check up on it regularly and I’m even trying to ask if someone could get me the concealer from Tesco. =)

  6. hihi,
    i have been reading your blog for quite a long time. I was wondering if there are any makeup tips to make my nose look sharper and face smaller???
    *waiting for your reply* :)

  7. Sorry if i double posted, my screen didnt pop up when i click submit.

    my question was :
    is the scanty lipstick for MAC discontinued???

    thankss lotss :)

  8. hey phyllis,
    your suggestions for picture taking make up were veryyyyy helpful..
    I know you have a page for homecoming, but if you have the time, can you write an entry for prom make up?

    thanks so much!

  9. Hey Sharleen & Bec :)

  10. hi, I just started reading your blog like 2 days ago, and i’m already hocked. I’ve tried the false eyelashes a long time ago, last year to be more exact, but they are very uncomfortable, (i’m a contact lens wearer), is it uncomfortable for you too? If it’s not, how would it be unfortable? (tears come out of my eye everytime i put it on), also do u have a review for loose powder?

  11. It all depends on your eye shape and what kind of results you want. When I used #116 on my lower lashes, I barely trimmed them.

  12. hey
    i was wondering if you could do an entry on how to make rounder faces look more defined
    && a more detailed tutorial on how to apply false eyelashes && if single or the whole eyelashes are easier to apply .. i seem to have so much trouble with that.
    thanks, i <3 your blog
    = )

  13. when applying fake eyelashes, you put them on the lashline as close as possible, right? this makes sense for top eyelashes but my bottom eyelashes are basically nonexistant and im worried i may apply the fake bottom eyelashes on my bottom waterline? im not sure where to find the line? or is it the same principle? im a lil confused. thanks!

  14. I’m pretty new to fake eyelashes and haven’t seem to master putting them on yet. I’ve purchased some from HK on ebay but have found the bands were really stiff and did not suit my eye shape.

    Is the band on the Ardell lashes flexible?
