Review: Revlon Beyond Natural & Fantasy Lengths False Lashes and Precision Lash Adhesive

Hi everyone! I know I said I'd be making more scheduled posts... and obviously I failed miserably at that -___-; LOL! But anyway, I figured as a New Year's Resolution, I'm going to try and get back into the swing of things ;) So cheers to a new year very soon, and here's a review to start it all off :)

I had previously reviewed Revlon's Fantasy Lengths "Intensifying" false lashes here, but had mentioned that I had wanted to try different styles. To my surprise, Revlon contacted me and graciously sent me some false lashes and lash adhesive (as well as false nails) for review!

I haven't tried the Beyond Natural line of lashes until now and I thought I would like them less than the Fantasy Lengths ones because there is no thick lash band and you have to mess around with lash glue. However, I was pleasently surprised to find that I like the Beyond Natural line just as much (if not more) than the Fantasy Lengths ones.

These lashes retail for around $3-4.

Revlon Beyond Natural lashes

What they say: -With various styles available, each with a different length and volume, you can easily customize your lashes -Synthetic, Handmade -Available In 3 Styles

My take: I really like these lashes because of the great volume they give, while still having a nice "wispyness" to them :) They're really full and long, but like the box says, they are ULTRA lightweight and I barely feel them at all. The only thing I don't like about these lashes are that the inner ends don't taper down in length and the outer ends don't flare out as much as I'd like, so they don't exactly look quite "natural." Other than that though, they are a great fit for my eyes and feel perfectly comfortable on. The band is super thin and not rigid at all, so these lashes are easy to place on and adjust. If you're looking for full, voluminous lashes, I'd give these a try.

Revlon Beyond Natural lashes
"Natural Defining"

My take: I don't really care too much for these lashes on their own, as I found them to be too "natural" for my tastes. They look nice up close, but from a distance, they are not really noticeable at all on my eyes. However, they are FANTASTIC for layering with other lashes (will explain below!!!). If you already have naturally long, full lashes, I think these would be nice for adding some extra oomph to them. Like the name, they are definitely "Natural Defining" and don't add much noticeable volume if you have short, sparse lashes like me :( The band is super thin and invisible, and like the other Beyond Natural lashes, they are ultra lightweight, easy to apply, and comfortable to wear. (Sorry no picture with me wearing just those!)

Revlon Fantasy Lengths lashes

What they say: REVLON® Fantasy Lengths® Maximum Wear glue on eyelashes are a revolutionary way to go from Plain Jane to Naturally Fantastic instantly. Without messy glue to fumble with- you can have perfect lashes that stay where you want them to- even in waterAvailable in four different styles.

My take:
I had mentioned in my other Fantasy lengths review that I really like these lashes because of the innovative self-adhesive strips. I think this is a great idea for people on the go who don't want to mess around with lash glue (me!). They come with an extra pair of adhesive strips too. And you can still peel off the strips and use regular glue afterwards. This pair didn't have the same rigid black band that the other Fantasy lengths lashes I reviewd had. This was a good thing too though because they were more flexible and comfortable. I like this style because it has a good volume and length and is noticeable on my eyes without looking too natural or too dramatic.

& On to LAYERING!!!

I think that this is the best part about these lashes... Since they are SO lightweight and the bands are so thin, they are PERFECT for layering over one another. This is what the Natural Defining and Flirty lashes look like put together:

I really like this combination because it gives the perfect length and fullness for me, while still looking natural :D This combination gives the fullness I like from the Dramatic lashes, but it tapers off nicely and can be adjusted for more flare at the outer end. LOVE :D If you don't mind the extra steps, I'd suggest trying to layer these lashes together for a costumized fit and volume :)

All of the lashes that I've tried are also great quality. I've been able to get around 10 uses out of these lashes until they finally started getting a bit bent out of shape!

Revlon Precision Lash Adhesive

Price: ~$5.00

What they say:
-Ultra thin brush allows for precise application on entire lash band or even the corners of lashes. -Saves time! Easy to apply with no hassle. -No need for extra application tool (such as cotton swab or brush) to apply onto lash band. -Easy touch-up anytime, anywhere. Convenient and purse friendly. Waterproof & Latex Free

My take: I really, really, REALLY like this lash glue. I think it's actually the best lash glue I've tried so far! Application is super simple and really mess free. It has a super fine brush tip that allows for easy application of just the right amount of glue to the lash band. It's not messy at all. The glue stays tacky for a good amount of time so you can easily place and adjust the lashes, but it dries rather quickly too, so the lashes don't fall off while you're in the middle of trying to put them on. And it lasts all day! The lipgloss-esque packaging is also great to keep in your purse if you need to do quick corner touchups throughout the day. I've tried other lash glues before that were sticky, smelly, hard to use, didn't dry quickly, were a bitch to remove, and were otherwise just plain gross! Never again! I'm so glad that I got to try out this lash glue because it's definitely become an HG for me!

The Rundown:

The packaging of the lash glue is great for stashing in your purse.

Product: 4.5/5
The lashes are fabulous: they're super lightweight, great for layering, and last a long time. It would be great if Revlon would continue to make more styles of lashes! The lash glue is the best I've used so far. Simple and mess free!

Price: 5/5
Completely wallet-friendly!
