Paper Lashes, Adhesive Liners


I’ve been going gaga over all the artistic lashes that I’ve been spotting lately. It started when I was shopping at Paper Place with my friend for her wedding invitations and I saw these astonishingly intricate paper lashes made by Paperself. I was so close to purchasing a pair, but then talked myself out of it because I couldn’t imagine myself actually wearing them out. Where would I be going with these things on? ;) Aren’t they stunning though? Apparently, the patterns are inspired by the art of traditional Chinese paper cutting – another one of my obsessions! At $19 a pair, I may just cave and use Halloween as an excuse to sport them – what do you think?




These new forms of makeup must be trending because several weeks later, I went into Sephora and featured at the front of the store was Dior’s new limited edition collection of Backstage Eyeliners-To-Wear Multi-Wear Adhesive Eyeliner Patches (geez, that was a mouthful). The Sephora ‘cast member’ explained to me that they work almost like a sticker. All you have to do is to carefully place them on your eyelids for a bold, dramatic effect (although I highly doubt they are that easy to apply!). It comes with four pairs, 2 in black, 1 in grey and the last one decked out in Swarovski crystals. To purchase or not to purchase? Hmm.. I am a little worried that my hands will not be steady enough to apply it properly, but I am impressed that these eyeliners are reusable! I guess at $59 a box, they better be!

If I had to make a choice between the two, I think I am leaning more towards the paper lashes because gosh, they are just so pretty! Have you tried either of these products? What are your thoughts?

xoxo,

    Wow…those paper lashes look amazing -almost like lace! I don’t know if I’d ever have the guts to wear something like that, but they are so pretty to look at.

    P.S. Love the new Captcha – CUTE!

      I waste my money on a lot of pretty things just to look at – as you probably can already tell :)!
      Re: Captcha – isn’t it adorable? It’s the cutest captcha I’ve seen! You can actually create your own custom ones too – which you know I will once I have time :)!

    I’ve seen these and think they look so amazing, but not sure if I could wear them. Probably best left to the models! ;) I’ve put them in the Trends previously of http://www.taaz.com if you ever want to share new trends too!

      Yeah I don’t think it’s an ‘everyday wear’ kind of lashes – but still so pretty nonetheless!
