KKCenterHk Paper Eyelashes Review

Hi friends! Today Mir and I have a review of paper eyelashes from KKCenterHk to share with you all. KKCenterHk is an online retail shop that sells a huge variety of beauty products, from false eyelashes to wigs to nail products and even clothing. Some products from the site that really intrigue me include these Plastic Stamping Plates and these variety of patterned Nail Foils. As for today we have the Honey Butterfly Rose Paper Eyelases reviewed by Mir and the Bright Peacock Eyelashes reviewed by myself.

Paper lashes, what a first! I hardly have experience putting on normal false lashes let alone paper lashes.    If you take a look you can see my application is a bit off due to its length. I know that for false lashes we're supposed to shorten them a bit but due to its intricate design.. I wouldn't know how!


Now they're not as fragile as you think but they still need special care when applying this. If you noticed, my pictures aren't 100% the same as the picture (it's because a rose bud broke off heheh.. I don't even know when?!)

omgoshh my wrinkles!! sorry!!!

Because these are specialty lashes, there's not really a way to "blend" your real lashes with this set nor curl or coat with mascara. I put on a bit of mascara and curled my own lashes first before applying. After I just pushed the paper lashes a bit to curl them and there you have it!

I won't say they're totally uncomfortable but I wouldn't wear them on a daily basis!! They don't cut into my eye or anything but I definitely know they are there!! Personally because I have a few eye issue I couldn't wear it for a prolonged period of time (see my wrinkles from my allergies? T_T)

I quite like the design and will keep them for a very special occasion. Just not sure what type.
Is my eye charming and attracting you? lol ;)

These are the first paper eyelashes I've tried, to be honest I was very intimidated by them at first. I don't use false eyelashes at all so the thought of apply eyelashes made of paper made me pretty nervous nervous. The hardest part for me was to position the peacock head in the middle of the eyelid, I had to adjust it a bit but I think I did OK. Surprisingly the eyelashes didn't rip on me while I was applying and re-applying, though to be fair I was super gentle while handling them.




The shape of the peacock is difficult to see head on so all of my pictures had to be take on a angle. My paper lashes were a lot longer than Mir's so I found that the ends of the lashes were very itchy because they poked into my eyelid when when I opened my eyes. I'm not to sure when I'd wear lashes like these because they're so unique and not made for everyday wear. My usual makeup routine is super basic (concealer, blush, eyeliner) so I don't see these lashes having any part of my routine in the near future. Though I must say that with these lashes no one will be able to look away from your eyes. In my pictures I applied the lashes to my bare eyelid with no mascara, just a little bit of eyeliner.




All paper eyelashes are priced at $21.50USD, but currently some styles (including the Honey Butterfly Rose) are on sale for $9.99USD.

    1. The only time I can see myself wearing these lashes would be on Halloween, otherwise I'm too self conscious to wear them out.

    1. I agree with you Michelle! I like Mir's design better too, more intricate and delicate looking whereas mine looked super dramatic.

    1. They're too funky for me too but I guess if I ever dress up as a peacock for Halloween I've got a head start with these lashes.
