Unleash your inner Harajuku Girl with Eylure’s “Tokyo” Lashes

Did you know that Eylure are the people behind some of the most well-known wide-eyed looks ever? Me neither, but apparently they’re the crowd responsible for creating the super-fluttery lashes of Twiggy, Jane Fonda in Barbarella, and one Ms. Elizabeth Taylor in Cleopatra, if you don’t mind.

That’s today’s History Of Beauty lesson out of the way, then. Anyways, Eyelure have taken inspiration from funky fashion capital Tokyo to create this eponymous range, and all the lashes have decidedly Japanese-y names. Hiroko are purple and black corner lashes, Yuko are full-on feathery affairs which come in either blue or green, Yoshe are very fine and pink and a bit scary looking, Keiko are dainty criss-crossed lashes which flare out, Masako are black lashes with three small individual feathers on their outer corners, while Toshiko are long blue lashes criss-crossed by shorter black ones. A seventh version, Chio, are also available, they’re very natural black full-strip lashes, too similar to any non-Tokyo lashes for me to treat you to a pic.

Phew! So lots of choice there for anyone looking for Something A Bit Different to adorn their lashes, and the best bit is that they’re really reasonably priced, costing around a tenner, and are widely available in Boots, larger pharmacies, and even online via ASOS.com.

    Lynnie, just wondering is it easier to apply individual lashes or strip ones?

    Individual lashes are more natural looking aren’t they? I applied them once but took me FOREVER, I know I need a bit of practice though!

    Also are the strip lashes available in one length only?

    never tried fake lashes but would love too…….anyone know any good budget ones for a first-timer like moi?

    …….how to apply fake lashes could be a good post……….

    I’ve used the scary pink ones!! Mind you I was going to a fancy dress party! Not actually particularly effective tbh. Too lightly coloured and fine!

    I’ve also used the purple and black ones, and another plain purple pair just by ylure, not the tokyo version, and I LOVED them!

    DeeDee, when I was learning to put on fake eyelashes I bought ones in H&M, they were like €4-€5 or something! They weren’t the best but like they did teach me and I didn’t feel bad for buying them to mess around with cos they were so cheap! And Deni-o, as far as I know, those same H&M ones come in medium and long!

    The false lashes on E.L.F uk website are only €2 each. The glue that comes with them isn’t the best so would recomend getting the false lash glue from MAC.

    I actually wouldn’t go out 4 a nte now without wearing false lashes!my faves are the eyelure ones ya get in boots/superdrug.go for volume or glamour. both places sometimes do offers on them-theyre about 8yoyos for a set.you’ll never look back:)

    I will have to rob the BF’s credit card as mine is very ill at the moment. I have to get me some of those.

    @Pollyanna – I’ve only recently discovered that they can be worn anyttime, not just for the big occasions. I have even worn them to work. They are so great.

    I only recently discovered fake eyelashes, and now i love them, ive tried a few different types, and find the best to be a brand called 10000 hour, available in most local pharmacies, easiest to put on, and longest staying more, usually 6.99 a pair, but offer on at d mo at half price – 2.99, i stocked up at d wkend!!
