Spotted: Faux Lashes at my local Dollar Tree!

Natalie Tuesday, February 8, 2011
Hey Everyone!

I wanted to do a quick post about these awesome lashes I picked up at my local Dollar Tree store. I had first spotted these last summer and was SO thrilled to find inexpensive lashes. I wear faux lashes very often, and wearing them often really adds up! The price for faux lashes went up in price in the past year at my local drugstores. It's now over $4 for one pair of Ardell lashes (which is ridiculous!!). I try as much as I can to get them when they're on sale at ULTA or Sally's Beauty Supply. Well, to make a long story short.. (it's actually not a long story at all.. lol) When I went back to purchase more lashes, they didn't have one pair. So I went searching high and low to all of my local dollar tree stores and saw nothing. Just tubes of eyelash adhesive. Big disappointment. I know Dollar Tree carries items that are purely close outs (sometimes there are N.Y.C, LA Colors, ELF, Etc. products) and there is stuff that comes directly from their supplier. You'll know if it's a Dollar Tree item if the label says "Distributed By Greenbrier International, Inc. Chesapeake, VA 23320. These are in fact, Dollar Tree lashes.. not close outs or overstocks of another brand.

Anyhow, I was shopping at Dollar Tree for party favors and came across my beloved lashes again. Thrilled, I picked up 8 or 9 pairs. There were probably around 40 pairs total on the rack of all different styles.

All of the lashes I purchased were the same style. They don't have a specific style number, but they looked the longest, featheriest (is that even a word?) and the most natural. I didn't think to compare bar codes, but in case you wanted to track these down in particular, the code is 639277893550. There also appears to be an item number of 989354 1010. It is most likely though that all of the styles have the same bar code. If you are familiar with Ardell Lashes, lengthwise they are longer than the 105's but shorter than the 111's. Although it doesn't state if they are 100% human hair or synthetic, I can tell you that they are synthetic. I normally don't purchase synthetic lashes for a few different reasons. 1) They can be stiff and difficult to apply 2) Because of the stiffness and plastic material, they can be uncomfortable 3) They can sometimes be too shiny & look un-natural. But, if you find good synthetic lashes the plus side is 1) They hold a curl better and 2) In my experiences, they have lasted longer b/c they are a little less "delicate" than the natural ones. 

I wouldn't be posting about these lashes if I didn't like them. I think they're great.

Here's a closer look..
I have used this style before and they looked super natural and blended in very well with my natural lashes. I typically cut the lashes in half for a less dramatic look. 

So, if you're near a Dollar Tree store on your next shopping trip out and are in need of faux lashes, check them out for yourself! I hope they will continue re-stocking these.. I've got my fingers crossed.

Have you spotted really inexpensive faux lashes in your area? Share in the comments!

    Lucky - Yeah they really are.. some Ardell lashes even went up to around $6 for the "Runway" pairs. Terrible!

    Cheryl - Ooooh! I was curious about ELF lashes but I figured they wouldn't be long enough? I'll have to check them out. That would be another great alternative.
