[REVIEW] Velour Lashes in You Complete Me

Wednesday, March 14, 2012 Sidrah!!!! 14 Comments

Before I started blogging it never really occurred to me what false lashes can do to an over all look. I had always seen YouTube Gurus wear them but I never really thought about trying them out. Velour Lashes are definitely well-known for their Hand-Made Cruelty-Free Mink lashes. So lets see how these worked out for me!

About the Brand: 
Velour lashes began with 2 best friends-- Mabel and Angela. They wanted to design a brand for women to elude confidence and sophistication. 

When it comes to our line of Velour Lashes, we aim to exemplify the facets of elite status – high quality, high class, and super luxurious. Whether it is for a day out to the mall or a big social event, a pair of Velour Lashes is a must to complete our look.

Launched and based in Toronto, Velour lashes are individually handmade with 100% authentic mink fur. They are custom designed to achieve your desired look and to set you apart from the crowd. The Velour mission is to instill in young women a sense of elegance and prominence when wearing our lashes and most of all, having a great time while doing so!

Providing you with high quality lashes that are long-lasting, lightweight, comfortable, and super fabulous; we are proud and excited to present to you our custom line of 100% mink fur- Velour Lashes!

Velour Lashes are made up of 100% natural mink fur which has been gently brushed from live mink and sterilized to ensure that it is hypo-allergenic. We would like to make clear and public that no harm has been done to these beautiful animals. Unlike synthetic lashes, our 100% natural mink fur is free from any chemical processing and dye which allows for an extremely soft, lightweight, and natural look.

About Velour's 'You Complete Me' Lashes: 
Lashes half way there? The perfect finishing touch to pump up your lashes.
Made for girls who already have decently long lashes but want that extra thickness. The pattern of these natural lashes gradually gets thicker as you reach the outer corner of the eye, with more fur concentrated at the ends. The medium-length maintains a natural look for an all purpose use. Even girls with lashes can wear Velour!

These lashes feel like luxury. The packaging alone is just super cute. They come in a magnetized cardboard box to keep your lashes in shape after using them. It has a little ribbon to remove the plastic from the box.

The Lashes:
These lashes feel like natural hair, really soft and don't have that plastic shine that generic lashes have. These have such better quality then synthetic hair lashes and can be used up to 25 times. The pair in You Complete Me have a flared look to them, shorter in the inner corner and longer on the outer corner giving you volume with a cat- eye look. These are just a tiny bit long for my small eyes so I was not sure to trim them or not but they worked out ok!

To Sum it up:
Prior to getting these I had never used false lashes before and I wasn't sure if I would get the hang of applying them but these were super easy to put on since the band is flexible and blends in well with your natural lash line. I do like how these give my lashes more volume and length. This pair is the most wearable available and they give a super dramatic look with the cat-eye flair. I will definitely be wearing these for bold eotds. A big advantage to mink lashes is that these will last a very long time, about 25 times depending on how well you take care of them. These hold a curl really well since the hair is really soft. I've used them a couple of times and I had always thought false lashes would be difficult to curl and these were really easy to do that. I've really been enjoying using these!
