Review: Gracie lashes by The Vintage Cosmetics Company.

I had the extreme pleasure of winning this lovely set of lashes in a giveaway over at Paperbacks + Postcards last month.

While the Cath Kidson-esque packaging isn’t really my style I can see why these would appeal to the vintage 40’s/50’s girls out there.

As with the majority of lashes out there these came with their own glue, but as a rule I just don’t bother with the lash glue included with any lashes other than Eyelure, but they do get used for adhering things like rhinestones and whatnot.

They looked great and lasted all day without re-glueing (but that may be down to the Eyelure glue, not sure). They went on super easy, first time. They have a very thin, clear thread base which makes them super easy to fit to the eye, so this is a plus for sure. I’m pretty confident they are strong enough to last a fair few more wears but are very light too. 

So I give them a very positive 4 out of 5! They are great for adding some length and some flutter but aren’t very thick. I’ll probably layer them up with a thicker pair for on stage. 

This is the end look I went for, complete with a metallic violet lip!ImageImage
