I’m a huge fan of false lashes. Maybe a year ago or so, I was wearing false eye lashes every single day. Some of you might think I’m nuts, but once you get started with falsies, it becomes an addiction (not a bad one of course!) I’d never wear a full-strip, because that’s just too much for every day, but I’d snip those babies in half and wear them on the outer corners of my eyes, and they’d blend in perfectly with my other lashes.
They’d give the effect of larger, elongated eyes that looked uber girly. Just a little bit of liner and lipgloss and I was out the door!
Needless to say, purchasing eyelashes every other day was becoming way too pricey. Especially since I noticed a small price increase at my local drugstore on Ardell/Andrea lashes. It took about a week or two to get use to the way I look without lashes. For a whole week it seemed like something was missing from my face! Now I usually only wear lashes when I’m going out, and I want to look my extra best, which is much easier on my wallet.
If you’re an avid reader of fashion and beauty blogs, you may have heard of KKCenterHK. I’ve seen reviews for their eyelashes featured on several of my favorite beauty blogs (MakeupbyLacy & HollywoodHeels to name a couple).
KKCenterHK is a company based out of Hong Kong that sells false lashes, makeup, wigs, nail products and accessories. It’s a very popular site to purchase false lashes from because you can buy a large quantity at a low price.
I picked out two different styles: ES A562 and ES A601. So far, I’ve worn both styles and really like them. The bands are thin and very flexible, so they adapt well to the shape of your eyes and they feel comfortable after several hours of wear. Both sets retail for $16 for ten pairs, so it ends up being $1.60 a pair.
I don’t think they look too unnatural. I’m sure if I applied black liner all the way across my lid, it would’ve blended in better, but I still think they looked pretty good.
I know many bloggers purchase false lashes in bulk off of eBay for much less money – I personally have only purchased lashes from eBay (from Hong Kong) once, and the particular ones I purchased were horrible quality (thick plastic, uncomfortable, etc), not to mention they took almost a month to finally arrive. I haven’t been recommended to purchase from any particular seller, so until then, I’m going to stick to the lashes I know.
What I love about KKCenterHK is the amount of reviews out there for their lashes. It’s so much easier to shop for lashes when they’re shown on an actual face. If you browse Google, you’ll find hundreds of reviews for different styles of the lashes they sell.
I was expecting to wait a few weeks for my package, but my lashes actually arrived in one week. I think that’s amazing!
I’d definitely recommend checking out KKCenterHK for false lashes, and I’m sure I’ll be purchasing lashes from them in the future!

Where do you buy your lashes from? Every once in a while I’ll spot lashes at my local Dollar Tree, and I’ll stock up on them – or I’ll buy a bunch of E.L.F. Dramatic Lashes at once since they’re only a $1!
