I am a lash wearer through and through- you’ll be unlikely to find me without a pair of falsies even on a day-to-day basis. It’s totally become the norm for me to wear them and I am always looking to try new releases from my favourite lash brands. One of those brands is Kiss Lashes who have recently released their Lash Couture Faux Mink Collection. This new line is a more luxurious selection of super high quality lashes but completely synthetic.
The first thing to note is that the lash band is much thicker than your regular lashes which I’ve found with many luxe ranges across a wide range of brands. I don’t usually like a thicker lash band as I have quite small eyes and I often struggle to get them to sit comfortably. You could say I’m “Team Thin Lash Band” through and through. I’ll do anything for an easy life.
That being said, these are actually rather easy to apply – so long as a good amount of bending the lashes prior to application is done – and they fit pretty darn comfy on my lash line. These are extremely well made and feel completely high quality and more expensive than they actually are.
The lashes themselves are completely knot-free which I believe is something I really enjoy, simply because I love re-using lashes over and over. There’s nothing worse than finally having to bin your favourite lashes because they’ve got past the point of acceptable wearing. The lashes are also very volumising and long with a soft flare that really opens up the eyes. They are completely multi-dimensional which gives a more 3D effect and they look wonderful from every angle.
I have two of the six styles to chat about today – both completely different and one style that I surprisingly enjoyed trying.
Kiss Lashes Couture Faux Mink Collection – Little Black Dress
First up, Little Black Dress – these are fluttery and the ultimate choice for me. I gravitate towards wispy and fluttery lashes and I completely fell in love with this pair the moment I popped them on. The lash line is more defined due to the thicker band so you can for go liner if you wish. I have worn these around 4/5 times already and they still look brand new. Find them here
Kiss Lashes Couture Faux Mink Collection – Gala
The second style, Gala aren’t my usual pick because they look quite spiky and super dramatic. Usually, I find this style of lash a little too much for my little peepers and don’t normally pick them up. However, in this instance I was completely surprised as they looked gorgeous! I loved the length and amount of drama they provided as it was subtle and defined at the same time. They added drama without swamping my eye and I’ll certainly be trying them again soon.

I just want to point out that these luxurious and cruelty-free lashes are only £7.99 which is crazy considering higher end lashes of exactly the same quality retail for upwards of £20 per pair. So, if you’re a lash lover and you enjoy the pricier styles, this range is definitely for you. Find them here
What are your favourite lash styles and how do you feel about faux mink versions?
