Bargain false lash alert!…

January 11, 2011

I saw these lashes a while ago in a pharmacy and have absolutely no idea why I didn’t buy them, no idea.  So when I saw them again yesterday in Penneys, I grabbed them! They cost me €8, in total, for five pairs.  I know, right?

I posted a TwitPic of them earlier, “Check out these lashes!! 5 pairs for €8…will write a review as soon as I’ve tried ’em” and quick as you like, got a reply from @vickinotaro …”they’re the girls aloud lashes in different packaging btw!”

Guess what? She’s not wrong….I went into the nearest chemist where they had the Girls Aloud lash gift set, compared it with the pic on my phone and rejoiced!

Here are the Active Cosmetics ones…

I make that (from top); Sarah, Nadine, Kimberly, Nicola, Cheryl

…and the Girls Aloud ones


From top; Allure, Attraction, Beauty, Razzle Dazzle, Dazzling

I know I said I’d review them once I’ve tried them but hey, they’re the same as the Eyelure ones!  I will definitely be stocking up on these and using them with my Duo Lash Adhesive.  At €1.60 a pop (or £1 each if my research is correct, it seems Savers in the UK have them for a fiver) you really can’t go wrong….I’m going to get back there quick before they sell out.

UPDATE: With some further research I’ve found out that Argos also stock these lashes in UK & Ireland and they’re currently 25% off!  Click on your location for the link to their site.

        Thought as much haha!! Serious bargain, I knew they looked familiar but it wasn’t until Vicki said about Girls Aloud that it clicked. Right bargain…might even stick two of the pairs together for extra oomph, Attraction and Dazzling would go well!

    I spotted these before Christmas and thought the bands looked really flimsy on them. They do look suspiciously like the Girls Aloud ones though. I’m prob just used to thick bands from the ebay lashes – will be dying to know how you get on when you use these.

      I got the lashes from eBay before and they’re been sitting in my drawer ever since because I hate the thick bands….I’m used the the Invisiband Ardell ones so I like a nice thin base. Will let you know asap how they wear!
