Trouble putting on your falsies??

I recently bought these Kiss Premium Eyelashes with Applicator Strings at Walmart, thinking I'd try them out since they were featuring these new "applicator strings" that are supposed to help you get your falsies on easier and faster. Now, I thought this was a GREAT idea for those who find it hard to put on a pair of lashes! However, I wanted to try them first to see how well they really worked before I started telling all my friends about it.

I tried my best to take pictures of the steps to putting these lashes on. It was a bit of a fail so please, bare with me!

This is how the the packaging looks like when you first purchase it.

Instructions on how to put them on. Seems simple right?? lol

Close up of how the string is actually attached to the eyelashes.

Carefully take of the lashes from the packaging and apply the lash glue on the band just like any other lashes.

Take both strings and place the lashes as close as possible to your real lashes and you can also pull on each string to position the lashes to your liking.

At this point, you can carefully pull out the strings while holding down the edge of the lashes so it doesn't lift off....however, it is actually A LOT harder to do than said! As you guys can see in this photo, the lashes are lifted as a result of pulling out the string.

And pull out the other string again, while holding down the edge of the lash/

The end result!

In my opinion, I don't think the strings really do anything to help the process of putting on the eyelashes. In fact, when removing the inner corner string, it was actually pretty tough to get the string out and it even ended up lifting the lash from my lid. This product claims that it makes putting on lashes faster with the strings but, honestly, I can put on a pair of lashes with just my fingers or a pair of tweezers like nobody's business! lol However, if you are one of those who find difficulty in putting on a pair of falsies, this product might help make the process a little easier and help in learning how to properly place them on your lids. For me, I have been putting on lashes for years and I think I pretty much have the hang of it...if not by now, then I think we'd have a bit of an issue!! If anything, I just find that the process of using the strings and removing them takes more time than putting them on with a pair of tweezers. So, for an overall rating...I'd have to give this product a 5/10.

FYI - the lashes themselves are actually really great and come in lots of different styles. I'd probably only ever buy this product again solely for the lashes and remove the strings beforehand! Tata ladies!
