Review: KKCenterHK False Eyelashes (Eye's Chic 815 and 813)


Hey everyone! About two months ago, Ms. Maggie of KKCenterHK sent me an email asking if I wanted to try their products. I checked their website to familiarize myself with their products and found that the prices are quite affordable. A box of lashes containing 10 pairs, for example, costs $13.45 (~612 Php), so that's approximately 61 Php for one pair.

If you're not familiar with the brand, here's a little background. KKcenterHK is a Hong Kong-based online store that sells a variety of products like makeup items and tools, false eyelashes, wigs, nail tools and accessories, health and skin care tools, and even clothing items and fashion accessories. If you wanna know more about the brand, visit their website *here.*

They sent me two types of lashes and I'll be reviewing those today. Lately, I've been interested in false eyelashes given my short and thin lashes. Maggie's email was so timely. :)




Description (from KKCenterHK): 
  • 100% Authentic
  • Made in Vietnam
  • Ten pairs in a box
  • Made from synthetic fiber
  • Length of head lashes : 0.6 cm
  • Length of middle lashes : 1.2 cm
  • Price: 13.45 USD (611.98 PhP) per box (~P61.00 per pair)
What I think: These are perfect if you want longer but still natural-looking lashes. You may have to cut the band to a length that will fit your eyes. I like that these lashes are light and not stiff. There's also a li'l criss-crossing going on there, making them look natural. Also, the length of the lashes aren't the same throughout; the middle lashes are a bit longer, making them look more natural. They're quite durable too, and the band doesn't tear easily so these can be used more than once (depending on how gentle you are in handling them, of course).

Wearing EC 813
What I think: These lashes are more criss-crossed than the 815 and give me full yet still natural-looking lashes. I didn't have to trim the band of this one since it already fits my eye perfectly. I like how the lashes flare out in the outer ends, making my eyes look more cat-like. Also, since the inner lashes are shorter, they blend well with my short natural lashes. These are also quite durable. They have thicker bands than the 815 but still pretty light and don't weigh my lids down.

If you're interested in any of these lashes, check out KKCenterHK's website *here.* They have many more types of lashes to choose from and they ship internationally. I had to pick this up from the QC post office, though. You may find that a bit of a hassle, especially if the post office is not near your house. I actually didn't get the point of me needing to go to the post office to claim this. I thought that the post office people were gonna open and inspect the package in front of me so I took the time to go to there and even paid a P40.00 fee. But then they handed it to me straight away without inspecting or anything. Why didn't they just deliver it straight to my house? They delivered the notice there, anyway. I still don't get it :/

But anyway, I'm still getting used to wearing false eyelashes but for a noob like me, these EC lashes are really good for their price. :)

Oh, by the way, if you're planning to order, you might as well join their contest and get a chance to win up to $20 worth of proucts! Click the pic below for more details.

  8. @Ateenadj, true! That's what I like about them :)

    @Popblush, sadly yeah. It was! they didn't even check the package (which I thought was the purpose of the whole post office thing).

    @Gellie, that was my first thought too :) But good thing these lashes aren't very dramatic :)

    @Mitch, thank you:))))

    @Sunnytoast, yup! But they have lots of more dramatic lashes too :D

    @Jes, yey. Good to know that. I don't wanna end up looking fake :/

    @Choco, yep they do! I was actually surprised to see that there are so many! Haha

    @Hollie, thank you! I love the way it looks on me too :D

  9. I have never tried false eyelashes because my lashes are already long and dark -- like a drag queen's. I didn't even use mascara until last year. Now, I can't live without it.
    So I might try false lashes someday. You never know with me.
