My hunt started when I spotted some false eyelash applicators at the Shu Uemura counter.
The look fantastic but at £27? Ridiculous!!!
I was sure I could do better than that and I did.
I found these two from different shops from Ebay.
And the price?
Well just £5 and £6 including shipping! Who's laughing now? I am :)
This is what they look like next to each other. They both fit in the palm of my hand.
This is the curved one which is fool proof.
What I like about this one in particular is that you can close the clamp. I find it useful when I'm putting the glue and when I need to wait for those crucial moments for the glue to go tacky.
I find that with the tweezers I always really press them to make sure I don't drop the lashes but with this applicator you don't need to worry about that. You just close it an leave it to dry a bit while you do something else. :)
See below the firs photo where it's "open" and the one below is when you "close" it. Easy.
The other one is a bit smaller and the end is also good for when we need to press the eyelashes against our lashes or when we need a bit more precision to stick the ends.
