Fantasy eyelashes courtesy of Shu Uemura and Viktor & Rolf


Gratuitous for a Tuesday lunchtime, perhaps, but there’s nothing like a pair of Swarovski-embellished false eyelashes to pep up a work-a-day face. I nipped into Liberty to peruse their Christmas fantasies and came out sporting some fab Shu Uemura falsies, lustrous black with a strip of silver glitter and mini diamante at the root, slick eyeliner-style. Added vim an otherwise pedestrian outfit of black shirt dress and flesh tone heels, and made returning to the office altogether more exciting. I was very disappointed when the sheer quantity of slap applied in the morning meant they were soon working their way of my eyelid – before I could get a pic too – boo! Upside is that they last up to 10 wears, so next time a pic will materialise!
That said, the these lashes were great, but Shu Uemura’s collaboration with fashion’s Viktor & Rolf trumped them hands down – three ultra-ultra glamourous false eyelashes which sang from the Dutch duo’s design songsheet – looped black lashes, princess cut gold metal numbers, plus an exaggerated, elongated option like a bird’s wing in flight,all presented on a white mask like demi-face in a white presentation box. You’d never want to wear them, but they are something to covet, plus they are oh so timely, given the current House of Viktor and Rolf showcase at the Barbican.
Only marginally less showtastic were the Shu Uemura black lace falsies and teal marabou option, again, my sparklies were pale in comparison to these beauties.
It sounds like Shu Uemura has a fair few exciting tricks up its sleeve, product-wise, in the near future, so watch this space as I have been promised early heads up!
