The beauty industry is ever evolving and new products are launched every day. While some of these products are seen as old products being given a face-lift, others are more intriguing and truly innovative.
A case in point are the new genre of false eyelashes made out of special paper, otherwise known as paper lashes. Paper lashes are inspired by the art of Chinese paper-cutting and they are characterised by very intricate laser-cut designs. Motifs range from flower to peacock feathers, seahorses to butterflies and pretty much anything you can imagine.
The pioneer of the trend is a London based brand called Paperself with average prices being £12.50 for a full strip and £10.50 for an individual lash. Budget brand Essence Cosmetics(amongst others), has followed suit and they released a limited edition set.
Although they are not everyone’s cup of tea, they unarguably add interest to any make-up look. Are you daring enough to give them a go?
