I have another lash review today again! I purchased this from my local drug store, CVS, for $4.99. This Double Up line from Ardell came out a few months ago but didn't get my hands on it till now. I absolutely love the idea of double lashes especially they are extreme time saver and are perfect for more dramatic occasions. Since I bought this item in a hurry I really didn't a chance to take a close look at it, but when I examined it at home I really did't like it.
A lot of people glue 2 pairs of different style lashes together in order to create a more dramatic effect such as making the band longer to elongate eyes or variation in lash length for different types of look that original lashes couldn't create. Gluing lashes together is slightly problematic when you are new to this and don't know how to combine lashes together for the best results. Therefore, I think this is the reason why Ardell created this line. I mean if there's a demand then there's a market. You guys know... business is always business..
Sounds like a great idea so far right? The idea sounds simple and easy, but you guys are probably wondering why I don't like these lashes. I'm not a perfectionist, but I do expect greater quality when I'm whipping out 5 whole dollars to buy these lashes.
Honestly, I really didn't like the fact that Ardell glued together 2 pairs of exactly the same style lashes. It only makes the lashes look fuller but it didn't create any sort of variation in lash length to create different wearable looks.
This is an example of how a few pairs of different style lashes are glued together to create more emphasis towards the end of the eyes and at the same time elongating the band of the lashes. This is really something that you can't buy outside that requires a little imagination and crafty hands.
Basically I'm trying to say that these Ardell eyelashes are boring and have no creativity. There's really no need to stack to pairs of lashes together for more volume when I can buy a pair of fuller lashes to begin with. I think it's all a gimmick to lure customer's attention.
I know that some of your guys might really love the idea of fuller lashes and I do too but these lashes are pretty poorly made. The company basically glued together 2 pairs of lashes instead of making 2 sets of lashes on one band to make it more natural looking that consumers can't do at home. Sucks right? I can do it myself so why do I have to spend the extra 5 bucks on you? Ardell, why waste so much time on advertisements and packaging if you are not planning to create better quality?
Look I didn't even use it yet and it's already peeling off! Oh... no... that's very bad! I have to glue them back together before I get to use it or it would be very embarrassing if one pair came off.
Now coming to the worse part......
Overall, it's not worth the money at all! If something is going to make you look uglier then why do it? Why take the risk? Why wasting your time of finding a way to fix these lashes? It's really not worth it at all and if there's someone to blame then it's Ardell product designer. Designer, you disappointed me because I have always loved Ardell's lashes but definitely not this one. Hope this review helped you guys!
