Princess Lee Lashes – Cross 6 Black

I was sent another set of Princess Lee Lashes from KKCentreHK.com to play around with, and even though these Cross 6 Black lashes are longer than the natural Cross 7 Black lashes that I reviewed here, I absolutely love wearing them.

These lashes are reasonably dramatic, but because of the criss-cross arrangement of the lashes they still look quite natural for lashes that are this long, which is not always the case (for comparison pics of Princess Lee with other brands, check out my review here).

I also like the way the lashes have shorter lashes at the inner corner and longer lashes at the outer corner. I’ve never been much of a fan of the false lashes that are longest in the middle, and much prefer the ‘cat-eye’ effect that lashes like these produce.

When I first put them on my eyes I was astounded at how much they open up my eyes.  They are long to be sure, but they add so much drama to the eye.

When I look down you can see that they are definitely false lashes, but I don’t mind that. I think these would be great to wear out at night.

Behind my specs they don’t look as noticeable.

I can still blink behind my specs without any problems, despite the length of these.

After trialling Princess Lee Lashes I don’t think I’d ever go back to MAC, Ardell, or any other brand. These are comfortable to wear (because of the flexible lash band), natural looking, hand made, and best of all you get 10 pairs of lashes in a box for USD $17.60  from KKCentreHK.com. In Australia one pair of MAC #7 lashes retails for AUD $18, and the Princess Lee Lashes are much more flattering and natural-looking.

    @Jade Thankyou! They make such a difference to the way my eyes look. Next time I go out on the town, these are definitely coming with me :D

  3. I love fake lashes so much. I’ve taken to buying the individual lashes from Napoleon Perdis though. I can’t justify nearly $20 on one pair of lashes, so just putting a few fake lashes at either end of my eyelids to give it a little kick helps make them last a lot longer. Those ones look great though!

    @Julia I used to do that too, but I got fed up with how fiddly individual lashes are to apply. It does produce a lovely effect on the eye though. If it helps, I reuse all of my lashes. I just put them on a cotton pad and soak them in makeup remover overnight. In the morning I just take off the excess lash glue and put them in a little plastic container. On average I get about five uses out of each pair (at least).

    By the way, I hear that all individual lashes are made in only one factory and repackaged for different brands and sold at different pricepoints. You might want to see if there are some cheaper brands selling individual lashes :)

    You’re looking foxy with these lashes!

    Btw is that RBR you’re wearing on your eyes?

  6. Dempeaux says:

    @Jen Thankyou! Indeed it is RBR. Still loving it. I’m also wearing RBR Gracillis on my cheeks with some LMdB Echo over the top, and Chanel Rouge Allure ‘Sexy’ on the lips :)

  8. They look lovely on you. I’m very interested to hear that you can still blink with them on behind your glasses as that’s a problem I have encountered the other lashes. I love the rest of your look too.

    @Stacie Thanks! They’re really lovely lashes.

  10. Dempeaux says:

    @ModestyBrown Thanks Jane! Yes, I had a few problems with some of the Ardell lashes – they’re just too long behind specs!

  11. These look great on you, so not that you need this suggestion, but have you ever thought of having the individual lashes applied professionally, the ones that last about three weeks? It can be a bit pricey but I think it’s a great investment (I have these, although I’m taking a break from them next month….)

    @StyleOnTheCouch I have thought about it, but I’m always worried about the ‘patchiness’ of the lashes if you stop having them done and let them grow out. What do you think? Did you experience this?

  13. I guess this is what I’m doing right now so I’ll report back! You can either have the extensions removed (so you just have your own lashes there) or you can wait until the extensions drop off naturally. In my experience having the extensions doesn’t ruin your natural eyelashes if you care for your eyes well, but it is a bit of a “shock” to return to “normal” and you feel everything looks sparse because the synthetic ones are so full… If you’re worried about patchiness, you can just have the therapist remove them for you, so no problem. I have really loved mine and will return to them after a break…

    @StyleOnTheCouch That’s not a bad thought: having them removed sounds a good option. I’ll have to investigate! I live a few hours’ drive from my ‘local’ salon, but I’ll have a hunt around for prices etc. Longer lashes is always a good move. Thanks! :)
