Shu Uemura Retro Graphic Lashes

I am a big fan of false lashes, so much so that I rarely have a night out without them. Nothing adds drama like falsies and they can be the quickest way to take your makeup from day to night!

I have always admired the innovative and fun designs of Shu Uemura lashes, but previously only purchased the more mainstream styles (eg. smokey layers). So when at a recent event I was kindly offered to have some lashes applied by one of the Shu Uemura technicians I decided to choose one of the most striking and original designs in the selection!
The Retro Graphic lashes come with a thick black and white zigzag band that stretches out to create a lavish cat eye eyeliner.
They look absolutely incredible on and make a big statement! At first glance it isn't obvious that the lashes and the band are attached so you can fool people with your amazing liners skills ;). However, when your eyes are open they look much more subtle (especially if you have less lid space like me) and you can just see a hint of the monochrome along the lashline.
I am yet to brave applying these for myself, but I imagine the trick is getting the two 'flicks' at the same angle. The MUA took all the guess work out of the process by adding two perfectly placed dots of eyeliner where the tip of the flick should be. It's funny that in Russian an eyeliner 'flick' is called an 'arrow'!

The Retro Graphic lashes can be purchased at Shu Uemura counters and retail at £18.50.

Are you a fan of Shu Uemura lashes? Have you tried any of their more eccentric designs? What are your favourites? Will you be attempting any of the dramatic eyelash and liner combos? xxx
