Eylure's NEW Enchanted False Eyelash Range


I'm pretty sure that Eylure have previously done a limited edition 'Enchanted' range, but, regardless, a new one has been launched (or at least new styles). Originally boasting 7 unique styles, I got hold of a new addition to the range, a style called 'Lily'. The romantically girly-named collection is a gorgeous variety of soft, feminine lashes, from half strips for the most subtle feline looks to natural-looking sets that would add just a touch of volume and length to your own lashes. (Eylure also do an Enchanted 'After Dark' range which offers more dramatic styles). For me, 'Lily' looked like a great addition to my false lash collection; they weren't too long but offered enough volume and texture to give me what I want in order to cover my hair loss. Whilst overall I do really like these lashes, they were surprisingly not up to Eylure's usual amazing standard.




Just to put it out there, I am super fussy about false lashes. They have to be 100% perfect. I am not using them as a beauty accessory; I use them as a way to cover signs of my hair loss so have far more of a practical function, and a huge emotional function to- perhaps why the stakes are so high. I used to solely rely on them for confidence, fearing that without a natural pair that would look like my own lashes, people would notice my hair loss (although, this didn't stop me from avoiding eye contact with people and thinking people would see through my disguise anyway). As such, my false lash journey has been filled with psychological reliance, and only a pair that ticked all the boxes would be purchased in case a 'dodgy' pair let my disguise slip.







I love Eylure's false lashes. I love the huge range of styles they create, I love how lightweight they are and how seamless they look when applied. They have created something for everyone and every need, which is why I always recommend them for trichotillomania / hair loss- you're bound to find a style that you click with. This 'Lily' style from the Enchanted range ticks all the boxes for me. The length isn't too long so as to make them look like spiders on my eyes, the subtle volume gives that little bit of flutter and the way the lashes overlap along the 'spine' of the lashes means that any gaps are covered when I look down; essentially, when on, they look like my own lashes. As a hair loss sufferer, they are great.







However, the one thing that's been niggling me about these lashes is the quality itself. I have never had an issue with Eylure lashes before, so I don't know if I just happened to pick up a faulty pair. As you can see from the photo, the spine of the lash is all bent out of place- this was the case before I even peeled the lashes from the packaging. Even after trying to mould the lashes into the usual curve of my lash line, it was as if they were stuck in this misshapen state and would ping back straight away. When I tried to place them on my lid, they wouldn't go neatly across my lash line like they should. This meant that the lash 'spine' was all wiggly, random parts higher up than others- it generally looked messy.




Luckily, I usually pop some liquid eyeliner over the top anyway so it wasn't a huge deal, but it meant you couldn't have a 'natural' look (ie, the lashes on their own or paired with a smudge of kohl eyeliner) even if you wanted to. Like I've said, this may have been a one-off faulty pair, but it's something to look out for with lashes- it proves annoying when trying to cover hair loss. Because of this, they haven't been my go-to pair for covering my lack of lashes, but they definitely aren't bad. If they didn't have the bending issue, I think they would be very high up my list- I would certainly recommend trying them out for covering hair loss if you're looking for a new pair!







Have you tried any of Eylure's Enchanted range? Have you had that issue with false lashes before?
