Princess Lee and ES Lashes Review
Princess Lee lashes were an urban myth to me. It's mentioned in asian magazine and talk shows but I didn't see them at all when I was in asia. I tried looking for a supplier online and didn't come across any. So when KKCenterHK.com reached out to me to try some products from their online shop I went directly for the Princess Lee Lashes.
KKCenterHK.com is based in Hong Kong. They have a huge selection of lashes, wigs, and other beauty supplies. They do ship internationally but the shipping can take some time. It took about 2-3 weeks to get to New York from HK which isn't horrible considering the snow storms we've had the past two months.
I requested for the Princess Lee #6 and #8 lashes. I wasn't sure what to make of the Princess Lee lashes at first. They didn't look so special in the box, #6 and #8 are very similar with #8 being slightly bigger. It took me a few tries to really appreciate the lashes. The band is thin, comfortable, and durable. You can reuse them several times. The band also holds a curve very well and can be shaped. The lashes are dense and noticeable but not unnatural. I'm really amazed by the quality. They're listed for about $18 for 10 pairs on the website. Well worth it in my opinion.
All in all, I'm smitten. Princess Lee lives up to the hype.
They recommended that I give the ES lash series a try. The one I got is labeled A222. These lashes also very comfortable and easy to use. The lashes are dense, especially by the base. They're very durable and can be worn a few times too. I wish they were a little longer but that's not a flaw, the style I got wasn't my personal preference. I would highly recommend A222 to those that want something natural with added volume. These lashes are more affordable at around $12 for 10 pairs per box. I plan on going back to try longer ones from this series.
Here's the video I did for this:
