Review: ES false eyelashes [style A101, A013, A134]

I was sent 3 styles of ES brand false eyelashes by KKCenterHK.com to review. At the time I was going through the site, I was a little disappointed. The prices were great but the site looked unprofessional & unpleasant. However, improvements have been made to the site & it looks a lot better than it used to.



Each style of ES falsies that I chose came in a box of 10 pairs.



Since all 10 pairs come in one box, the band of the falsies is extended (as shown up close in the picture below) on both sides & inserted into holes. Before applying the falsies you will have to cut off the extended band, which means that you wont be able to insert the band back in the holes & store the falsies that way if you want to reuse them.



Now I'm going to give my opinion on each style of falsies. I'm no expert on falsies since I hardly wear them but I think that every woman must know how to apply falsies since it adds that extra bit of glamour to any look based on the style of falsies. Also, bare in mind that my opinion of these falsies is based on how I felt after wearing these falsies in terms of comfort & the way the falsies looked on me based on my eye & face shape.

ES A101
Price: $4.89 for a box of 10
Buy it here





Pros:
  • Thick band so it's easier to apply for beginners.
  • Makes your lashes look full & adds instant drama.
  • Even though this style is full & dramatic, it doesn't look too over-the-top if you pair it with dramatic makeup.
Cons:
  • Slightly stiff.
  • These would have been my favourite falsies out of all 3 styles, but I hate how the falsies look super unnatural when you look down & people can see the top part of your lashes (for reference see the middle picture in the last picture collage). Since it's not human hair, from that angle it looks so stiff & so wrong. I think it would look bad if someone was wearing these falsies & looking down in a picture, or if the picture was taken from a birds-eye view.
  • Some of the lashes were not shaped in a nice curve (for reference see the 2nd picture). Maybe I'm being picky because you could take the falsies & wrap it around your finger for a few seconds to reshape it, but I think that's a bit of a hassle especially when you're in a rush.

ES A013
Price: $4.89 for a box of 10
Buy it here


I wore these falsies in my Back in to Makeup Mode? post.


Pros:
  • Thick band so it's easy to apply for beginners.
  • The criss-cross pattern makes the lashes look full, yet in a natural way.
  • Opens up your eye since the falsies go from short in the inner corner to long in the outer corner.
  • Medium curl.
Cons:
  • Slightly stiff.
  • This isn't really a negative point if I had applied the falsies properly, but the first time I applied these falsies, I applied it too much toward the outer corner on one eye. Since the lashes are long at the outer corner & have a medium curl, it made one eye look a bit droopy as compared to the other. You couldn't tell unless you were staring at me right in the eyes for 10 seconds or longer, but I knew about it so it annoyed me a bit.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

ES A134
Currently not available on the site




Pros:
  • Thin band makes it easier to apply the falsies really close to the upper lashes & cover up the band & glue with a thin line of eyeliner.
  • Natural looking.
  • Blends in very easily with your own lashes.
  • Amazing curl.
  • Out of the 3 styles, these falsies are the closest to feeling like human hair.
Cons:
  • Thin band makes it a bit harder to apply the falsies.
  • While taking the glue off the band, you have to be gentle. I was in a rush while taking the glue off on one of the falsies so I can reuse the lashes, but ended up ruining the falsies instead since the band wasn't strong enough for me tugging on that glue.
  • Really long. These eyelashes are deceiving when they're in the box & look shorter because they are so curled.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

To demonstrate the last 'con' for the A134 style & to compare all 3 styles of the ES brand falsies side-by-side, here are 2 pictures:

See how different all the styles are?


Now look at the curl on the A134! Notice how the A101 is the heaviest pair of lashes & has the least amount of curl.


Overall, these ES falsies from KKCenterHK are an amazing deal especially since they can be reused depending on how you take care of them.

Which one of the 3 styles did you like best?

you are not being too picky at all... I agree with you, thick banded falsies are much harder to apply than clear banded ones, so I tend to steer away from anything that could ruin my makeup. Great review :))
