My new favourite strip lashes!



I have heard a lot of good things about Nouveau Lashes. Their LVL treatment speaks for itself, providing 'Length, Volume and Lift' naturally, without the need for extensions. However, I wasn't aware they did strip lashes. So when they offered to send me some, I was particularly excited to see if they would live up to my expectations. 



In my package I received a number of products, including Nouveau lashes conditioning serum (£14.99),  Fine point tweezers (£10.00), Ultrasound strip eyelash adhesive (£13.00) and, most importantly, Strip lashes in Glamour / style 2 (£6.99). Nouveau offer a range of 12 lashes, categorised into natural, volume and glamour.


I was so happy to receive some from their glamour range, as I have been looking for a good pair of false eyelashes, to go with full make-up looks, for ages. I often find that full strip lashes can be quite heavy, feel quite cheap and look too fake, so when I received these I was pleasantly surprised. 

The first thing I noticed was that the seam, which the eyelashes are attached to, is so thin. This means that the lashes will look natural on the lash line and you won't have to pack on a thick eyeliner to cover it! I would even go as far to say you could wear them without eyeliner! Furthermore, they didn't have that fake shine that some lashes have. The individual lashes looked very realistic, which made me feel like the product was of high quality.


I applied the lashes using the fine point tweezers and the Ultrasound eyelash adhesive. The adhesive was very easy to work with and allowed me to move the lashes whilst on the lid, to get them to sit perfectly. The tweezers really helped to tuck the lashes right to the lash line, as the point is so thin on them. The adhesive is very strong and once set, these bad boys do not move, which is great. However, that does mean that when you want to remove them, you may have to pull a little harder, as the lashes were pretty much stuck to the lash line.

The final look is exactly what I was looking for  that full coverage eyelash, without overpowering  the make-up. They are fanned out so evenly that you can see the eye shadow behind the lashes. I think that for the price, these lashes are fantastic. I know quite a few popular brands around the same price, but the quality of Nouveau has definitely made these my new go to lashes.

What do you think of the lashes? Have you tried them out yet? I would love to know and hear you comments below.
