    I couldn't get them round my eyelids! They were straight and my eyelids are bendy! Although I used self adhesive so I think the ones with the glue are better

    I used to wear the ones with the glue you apply and they always looked good! But I just used to get so wasted I cba putting them back on.

    I always do my eye makeup first, wait about 10minutes to let it all set/dry and then chuck on the lashes! :)

    Yes you can reuse them.

    It helps to curl them around a makeup brush (thicker the better) to help them adhere to the natural curve of the eyelid.

    Always clean them after each use.

    Yeah, put your mascara etc on before you put them on...that's what it says on the leaflet that came with mine. They are fiddly but worth persevering with, I love wearing them now but it does take a steady hand and patience to put them on.

    i just had a practice run, i applied all my makeup first but all the eye shadow got stuck to the glue, so they arnt sticky any more. I;ll have to use one of the additional glue strips... i will be applying them before all my other makeup when it comes to real deal. No thanks to anyone who suggested that

    my sister wears them. She uses an eye liner first like covergirl, then puts the glue on her lids and the fake lashes. They look real!
