MAKE UP FOR EVER Lash Show Review

Reviews-Day Tuesday is here!  It’s been a while since I’ve done reviews, or tutorials, or anything that involves photographing my face, thanks to my mystery allergic reaction.  I’ve been itching to do a review, and luckily, my allergic reaction has left the area around my eyes (ugh, it wasn’t fun), so I can review some falsies.

These are the N-403 Lash Show False Lashes* from MAKE UP FOR EVER.

MAKE UP FOR EVER has launched Lash Show, a new line of 50 handmade, false lash styles designed for the easiest application to intensify eyes in a flash.  The collection includes 27 natural lashes (the code starts with an ‘N’), and 23 creative lashes (the code starts with a ‘C’).  The false lashes offer:

  • Supreme hold for long wear & continued use over time
  • 100% synthetic fibers that are lightweight for maximum comfort
  • A flexible and resilient band that easily adapts perfectly to any eye shape, with total control precision

Let’s put it to the test!  MAKE UP FOR EVER recommends applying a thin coat of mascara to lengthen your natural lashes.  I also like to pre-curl my lashes, so they blend in better with the falsies. 

I then removed the false lash from the package and followed the instructions of bending the lashes back and forth a few times to soften up the band.  I tried to bend it, but some parts were so stiff that when I bent it, instead of becoming flexible, it sort of cracked resulted in a right angle sort of shape.  I then applied the glue, and waited for it to become tacky.  The glue starts out blue, and turns clear when it dries, which I thought was kind of cool.  I then lined up the lashes with my lash line, and gently pressed it in.  Here’s how it turned out:

It was also recommended to apply eyeliner along the edge of the lashes to conceal the strip, but since there was such a visible gap between my natural lashes and the false lash, I thought it would just draw attention to the poor application job.

I’ll be the first one to admit that I am not a false lash aficionado.  However, I had a particularly tricky time with these lashes.  I applied them with my eyes slightly closed, so the false lashes wouldn’t be pointing upward, however, they still ended up pointing to the sky, which made it look very obvious that I was wearing falsies.  I thought that the lashes looked kind of unconvincing, since I couldn’t get certain areas of the band flexible – it made for random pointy corners on the band.

I also had a very difficult time getting the ends to stay glued down.  A friend recommended trimming the lashes on each end, so they don’t fly away, and even with a small trim on each end, then glue wouldn’t hold down the lashes on either end, as you can see pictured below.  I pressed, and pressed, then added more glue, but nothing worked.

What I did like about these lashes was how comfortable they were.  I remember the first time I tried falsies, at first it felt like I had a small elephant on my lash line.  These ones felt very light from the beginning, and never felt like they were poking me, or had any sharp edges (which sometimes happens when I wear falsies).  If I were to give any constructive criticism, it would be that I wish that the false lashes tapered off to a point like a natural eyelash, instead of being cut off.

You can find Lash Show  false lashes at Sephora,, and MAKE UP FOR EVER Boutiques, for $22.00 each.
