Review: Just Lashes by Ja'Maal Buster


I have never been a huge fan of false lashes because I feel that the more dramatic & fun ones tend to make me look like a drag queen!  When I was in beauty school, I took a class on lashes and we were each matched up with the correct pair to suit our face shape, features and eye shape.  I was always given the simplest and most boring pair, hahaha!  Apparently this is because I have a square face-shape and more masculine features, so while bold lashes will make me look drag-ish simpler ones will soften the angles in my face...interesting, no?  I think so, which is why I made a whole video about it last week!  :)  I've always been interested in face shapes, body shapes, why certain angles work and others don't etc.  

Being that I was naturally blessed with quite full & thick eyelashes (thank you, Dad!) and the only false ones that suited  me were plain and boring, I never really bothered with them.  I didn't even wear false lashes on my wedding day!  So I'll admit when I was first approached by Just Lashes I was a little hesitant but my curiosity got the better of me and the opportunity to "play" with different styles was very appealing.

Product Details: 
- Created by Ja'Maal Buster, the "eyelash guru to the stars" (Rihanna and Beyonce being his most well-known clients)
- Features five different sets of lashes: Whisper, Rockstar Chic, Sold Out Show, Bold & Beautiful and Looking for Love
- Each pair comes with their own tube of glue which dries clear
- All lashes are re-usable


(Rockstar Chic not pictured as I gave them to my sister!)

As expected, the lashes that suited me best were Looking For Love.  Everything else made me look crazy or ridiculous however my sister Emma looks more like my mom, has an oval face shape & much softer/feminine features and she looked amazing and "doll-like" in the more dramatic lashes.  Lucky her! ;)

Pros: Each pair come with their own glue which I found very convenient, there are many different styles to choose from, you can use them over & over, they are relatively easy to apply.
Cons: I found the Whispers' length far too long (length, not width) and would need to trim them which can be quite tricky.  
Price: €6.85 available from the official UK & Ireland website.

Disclaimer: Just Lashes were kindly sent to me for consideration to review.  I was not paid for my blog post nor am I affiliated with the company in anyway.  My 100% honest opinion, as always :)

Stay Stylish!
