For real, I love drag queens and I only wish I could pull off such bold-ass makeup. Alas, I’m somewhat of a timid mouse in real life. Wearing red lipstick out while running errands the other day left me in such a tangle of nerves, I had to spend the next two days recuperating in bed with a copy of The Bell Jar.
Just kidding. I don’t have a copy of the Bell Jar.
The Jealousness 505 lashes actually aren’t really outrageous lashes by false lash standards — they’re not bejeweled, glittered, feathered or anything like that. They’re just stupid long and fluffy and, in my humble opinion, look absolutely ridonk on me. But I kinda like them, in that way you love those studded heels that you can only wear for 5 minutes at a time or else your feet start turning blue.
Unlike the Jealousness 501 lashes which had glue holding them in place, these came with a strip of tape to keep the lashes secured when not worn. I much prefer this because it was tacky enough to hold the shape, but not so sticky that it was hard to pull the lash off the packaging. I did have to trim quite a bit of excess off in order to make them fit my eyes, but I did the same with the other Jealousness lashes also (which I neglected to mention in my review, but you should be trimming lashes to fit anyway!).
I have to admit, I didn’t think they would be this full from the pictures online. Every now and then, I freak out because I get flashbacks to caterpillar season and I think one’s fallen out of a tree and landed on my face. Not that that’s ever happened before or anything.
For my eye makeup, I used all shades from the gloMinerals trio in Amethyst I reviewed a little while back. I used my trusty Heroine Make eyeliner, but didn’t curl my lashes or apply mascara.
Here’s before I applied the lashes:
Bit o’ difference there, huh? Here’s a close up of the lashes on my eyes.
I actually do like them quite a bit, but they’re a HUGE difference from my normal lashes, even when curled and mascara’ed to an inch of their life. I would only wear these for a reallllly glamorous look or evening out. Or I guess I could go buy some appropriately broody literature and buck up some courage.
What do you think?
Where to buy: Pretty & Cute
Would I repurchase?: Honestly, probably not, but that’s not because of the quality! I quite like the Jealousness 505 lashes but I only need one pair of dramatic lashes like these. 😛 For now. Maybe my makeup tastes will change in the future!
