Lou's Reviews :: Eldora Lashes

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

I love wearing false eyelashes. I think they give you a huge dose of confidence and automatically give your face the 'wow' factor.

I've tried and tested quite and array of brands and have often found price does not reflect in quality. It's for that reason that I am always willing to try new lashes from different brands, and have found some great pairs this way.

I found these lashes from Eldora at the London IMATS. I had actually seen them the year before but not bought any, so I thought I would give them a whirlybird this time and I'm really glad I did.

(Please do excuse the slightly grainy photos. I took them on the poopy face-forward side of my iPhone because I was popping them on for a dinner party with chums and thought, 'Oooohh I should snap these whilst I can and blog about them', so here we are with not perfect pictures, but real lifeness none the less!).


The pair I bought (H149) were £3.33 at the IMATS as they were doing a 3 for £10 deal but I have seen online (linked above) that they are £4.25, which I still believe to be a fair price.

They were easy to apply, the provided glue was surprisingly good quality (I usually use my own Duo glue, but I couldn't find the tube) and they stayed put all night.

I liked that the actual strip of lashes was flexible, so you could mould it easily to the shape of your eyelid. Sometimes I find it unbearably tricky to apply lashes that I give up in gluey frustration, but so far, with Eldora, that hasn't been the case- hurrah!!

Also, if you don't pull them off in a wine fuelled stupor (ahem), then you could easily wipe any mascara and glue off and use them again. 99% of the time I get at least 3 uses out of my lashes. This obviously means you save money, but please don't be tempted to borrow your chum's lashes after she's had a wear of them, you could run the risk of infection! Bleaugh!


The packaging is pleasant and slim enough to fit neatly in my false lashes box. Hmmm, you know you have too many when you have a dedicated box for them! Haha!

I'm pleased as punch with this brand and am really looking to dabbling into some of their more adventurous pairs- like feathers or fabric. Oohhhh! Although I must say, if you're new to the land of lashes, H149 would be a great place to start as they provide an element of flutter, but without the 'oh wow, have you grown wings from your eyes?' feel that they can sometimes bring...and that secretly I quite enjoy.

Are you a lash lady? Would you be tempted to try Eldora?

Toodlepip!

  3. They look fantabulous! Very pretty lipstick as well. I've never worn false eyelashes because I would definitely find a way to stab myself in the eye. One day I shall attempt it but I am not brave enough just yet! :)

    elissiam.

  4. You look stunning :)
    I have always wanted to wear false eyelashes but I'm afraid they would fall off - as I know my "lucky-self"... And I'm sure that would be a pretty awkward moment... :D

  5. I've recently stopped wearing false eyelash's but I might start again after seeing these, I can never find the right type's to suit my eye shape though :( (I have pretty big eye's!)

    I'm actually giving a pair of Eldora eyelashes away as well as some elf goodies and other bit's over on my blog! :)

  18. they look lovely I usually only wear them for special occasions some times they go on right straight away, other times I am fiddling about with them for ages. Any top tips ?

  19. I have never, ever worn false eyelashes. There's just something about the idea of putting glue so close to my eyelids that scares me (I'd probably stick my eyelids together or something!) but I do want to try some. How did you get on with the Primark ones? x

  29. Just a tip for caring for false eyelashes,after you have finished soak them in warm soapy water to remove any traces of glue and makeup and roll around pencil wrap in kitchen towel and fasten. When they have dried they will be good as new and still be curled because of the pencil! X

  31. Gorgeous lashes, and gorgeous lip colour!!! xx

  32. They look really gorgeous on you - really natural!

    Your make up in general looks beautiful too :)

    I've had such a love-hate relationship with fake lashes, I always feel like a drag queen or I'm housing 2 spiders for the night but am I told they look nice!
    I still think I'd rather not be a hiberation home for spiders and pull out all the stops with mascara to get a similar look instead!

    Love, Elizabeth xx

  34. No matter how hard I try (and my friends, we all did it together!) I cannot put on false eyelashes! They just seem to fall off or stick up at the sides, need to invest in some good glue I think. They look lovely! I'm inspired :)

  35. I love the false lash look, but like many of the people who have commented I just can't put them on. Could you possibly do a quick post on how to put them on properly? It would really help.

    I've been meaning to invest in a good set of false lashes recently!
