Today I'm wearing a pair of Shiseido eyelashes that Kevin picked up for me when he went back to Japan over the summer. He's always thoughtful and just mass-purchases so many things for me, I'm really so blessed to have such a kind bf X3

Gorgeously clear finishing

I've seen these lashes online from around $25 or so, which is pretty expensive. The cheapest I've seen is on eBay for $19.99 + $3.99 shipping & handling. And to be honest, I don't think they are worth the money.
Upon opening the box, there are two sets of lashes and a generous tube of Shiseido lash glue. I'm not sure if it's because I've had these for almost a year and never opened them or what, but removing the lashes from the packaging was actually quite difficult as the adhesive that sticks the lash to the plastic was quite strong. I had to use tweezers and usually my fingers are nimble enough to remove the lashes with ease and without damaging the lash. But even when using tweezers, the lashes were stuck on pretty tight. A single lash fiber was broken off of each one =___= I promise you I was being very gentle.
The lashes themselves are actually quite short also (from one end of the lash bone to the other). These are meant to be very natural, hence the shortness. But they don't actually reach from my inner to outer corners of my eye :0 So they sort of sit right in the middle. The lash fibers themselves are also of conservative length. One can wear these to work and school.

Sorry for the really unclear photo. My eyeliner was done too thick for this set of lashes. I'm not used to applying natural & shorter lashes :P
Although the lashes are not of the best quality (kind of brittle when removing from packaging), they are VERY comfortable when applied on the eyes. You definitely don't feel them much at all. The lash bone is very soft and flexible and adheres to your eye shape perfectly.
The glue that comes with the lashes is very, very good. It is not diluted and useless like some glues are and I'm really happy it came in such a large tube (although the lashes themselves probably won't last very long).
