Review: Tanya Burr Everyday Flutter False Eyelashes

Posted on November 06, 2014 under Reviews

This weekend while in Brighton, something possessed me to pick up a pair of Tanya Burr false eyelashes despite the following two facts:

  1. I am not a big falsie wearer – they’re a hassle, generally not super comfortable, and look too dramatic for my day-to-day life!
  2. I’m not Tanya Burr’s biggest fan.

However, I didn’t bring my very small lash collection over to the UK with me in September, so I thought I might as well buy a pair just in case I needed them. Plus, I suppose my curiosity about Tanya’s line got the better of me.

I selected the “Everyday Flutter” style, because I thought half lashes would be easier to apply and more wearable for an everyday context.

Now, I was not expecting to be impressed. I mean, I didn’t think I’d hate them, but I thought that they’d just be another set of lashes.

Because it’s my style to reveal my conclusion near the beginning of the post: I love these lashes. Yes, I used the L-word. (No, not lesbian. Or lesbians.)

In case anyone was wondering, other eye makeup: Burnout and Darkside from the Naked 3 Palette, Stila Stay All Day liquid eyeliner, Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lashes mascara.

These half lashes are fairly long, with thin criss-crossing lashes that do make for a fluttery effect. Although they’re long, the fact that they’re not very voluminous makes them very wearable for daytime. I mean, I’m sure people know that my eyelashes aren’t naturally that good, but I don’t think they look out of place if I wear them to class to test-drive them.

Not only do they look great, they feel wonderful. Actually, they feel like nothing. At one point during my lecture, I was convinced they’d fallen off since I felt absolutely nothing. Nope – still on. Just super comfy.

I did find them easy to apply, probably thanks to the fact that they are half lashes. There’s no inner corner to tuck – that’s what always gets me! Also, the glue that comes with it is really nice. Normally I toss the glue included with lashes since it always sucks and I have my trusty Duo, but Tanya’s glue is the perfect consistency and has a little applicator that makes it easy to apply directly and accurately onto the band. Plus, it’s shimmery – what’s not to love? The glue holds very well and dries clear, which is always nice. (A bit of eyeliner to hide the seam is still a good idea, though!)

My own lashes (with mascara) on top; Tanya Burr Everyday Flutter lashes on bottom.

I can’t speak for the ease of application or comfort of the full strips, but I am so impressed (and surprised!) with the quality of the half strip. Next time I’m in the market for lashes I might just have to try another set in Tanya’s range.

Tanya Burr Everyday Flutter false eyelashes retail for £5.29 ($9.65) at Superdrug.
