Get Lash Perfect in a Flash with Japonesque

I have recently tried this set of Japonesque makeup tools for fun flirty lashes, and I have mixed views about them. I have the Pro Flat Eyeliner brush, Demi Flair Black Lashes and Heated Mini Lash Curler. Keep reading for my 2 cents. Let's start with my favourite:

 Japonesque Pro Flat Eyeliner brush - £10 link
I love this brush.
It contains white firm synthetic fibres to create dramatically lined eyes. I have been using this with MAC fluidline and it is perfect for that winged cat-eye look. To use, just place the brush against the lash line and tap the colour across the eyelid. At first I found this to be a bit scratchy, but as I began to use it more, it became less so. Gel eyeliners are so good for the summer as they tend to last longer and smudge less than pencils, and I can definitely see this makeup tool as having a permanent spot in my makeup kit, at least for the next few months!

 Japonesque Demi Flair Black Lashes - £8.15 link
This is a super dramatic set of lashes. This is a partial strip of lashes of varying lengths that flair along the outer corner. These are made of synthetic material and are quite shiny. It comes with lash adhesive.

 Japonesque Heated Mini Lash Curler in Pink - £12.50 - link
I was most excited about this product, but I feel somewhat disappointed. This product is meant to provide a deep natural curl for hard to curl lashes, replacing traditional curlers that have the potential to break lashes with pressure. I have straight Asian lashes, albeit a bit longer than most, and curling my lashes is one thing I never forget when doing my makeup. This Japonesque Heated mini lash curler very subtly lifts my lashes - I say it gives a more 'natural curl' rather than a 'deep curl'. However, I prefer more dramatic looking lashes and I still stick by my beloved Shiseido eyelash curler.

These Japonesque products are available from HQhair.com.

Any thoughts? ♥
Have you tried any Japonesque products?

    1. Based on this Japonesque one, I think heated curlers are overrated. It's a nice concept though.

  2. I love the effect it has on your eyelashes, although I don't think it's dramatic, I think it is pretty :)

  6. Thankyou for the reveiws. ^^ I've heard good things about heated eyelash curlers, I guess it's just down to finding the perfect one and the perfect mascara to use it with.
