I've tried different brand of lashes and different types, I seem to come back to this particular one. I have tried the other Vegas nay lashes but I really really love the shining star eyelashes. Whenever I wear eyeshadow I have to wear these lashes to complete my look. I have big eyes and very sparse eyelashes, and when I put shining star lashes they blend with my lashes and look more full. I clean them with alcohol when they get worn out. I don't like to put mascara over them as it might damage them a bit. I wear them when I go out even in a professional setting. In the beginning I did have a hard time applying them because the lash band was thick and not flexible. But with time and practice I got it down. Also the eylure glue isn't that great, duo is much much better. They are a tad bit long so I cut the outer lash to fit me. But the Vegas nay lashes seem to be a limited edition collection, so I am in the process of finding lashes very similar to them, without stacking lashes.
