Beautiful Silk Lashes!!
The quality here is evident, and these are subtle and very convincing lashes. The Faux Mink range uses individual hairs that more closely mimic a natural lash, and looking closely at them I can see they are set randomly and at different angles and lengths, just like the real thing. The band is very thin, and in use, undetectable. Unlike the Demi's, the 817's are straight cut, and are quite short by false lash standards. This makes them perfect for subtle, elegant, natural look that accentuates the eyes and adds a big helping of glamour but without any risk of appearing overly made-up. This is a personal opinion, but I think understatement is always best, and the temptation to wear massive lashes can risk edging towards a comic book or drag queen kind of vibe if you aren't careful. You're definitely safe with these lashes though, and they'd be a good place to start if you haven't worn them before. The Faux Mink ranges from Ardell does not come with glue, so you'll need to buy a separate bottle. There are plenty of good YouTube tutorial videos to help you apply them, and if you're careful they can be re-used.
