Aliexpress is a goldmine for finding cheap, good-quality products if you know how to use it right.
Unfortunately, while good-quality cheap products do exist, a lot of the products sold there are either a waste of money or hazardous to your health and skin (especially the beauty products). I’ve created this series to help you guys sort through the trash and get to the good stuff.
Red Cherry is an affordable lash brand that sells pretty quality lashes. Their hairs are human, instead of plastic or mink, and they are commonly sold on the internet, usually for around €3-€5 for a pair. But their copies are even cheaper.
Aliexpress generally sells great lashes for a very low price; which is great for people like me who like to experiment from time to time, but generally don’t wear them on an everyday basis so we aren’t willing to invest in some higher-end mink ones. I’m personally not a fan of the more dramatic lashes with the thick bands as they’re hard to apply but as long as the band is thin and clear, I’m willing to give it a go.
They also make copies, anything from Red Cherry to Huda Beauty. I really love Red Cherry lashes, their lash styles are right up my alley so I was very excited when I realized almost exact copies of their lashes existed; it gave me the chance to try out multiple styles without investing any type of money. This particular seller was selling them for €0,88 a pair, which is next to nothing. I ordered several pairs.
I love these lashes, they are so beautiful. They look natural, they fit my eyes perfectly, they’re reusable, and they’re easy to apply (which is important for a lash amateur like me); they’re also almost exact copies of the originals. I’ve tried different styles on multiple times and I literally have nothing negative to say at all.
Shipping is free and the lashes took roughly two weeks to arrive (to Belgium), which is pretty quick by Aliexpress standards. I have already repurchased a few more different styles and plan on purchasing more still.
While the seller has changed the packaging of the lashes since my first purchase so they longer have the name ‘Red Cherry’ on them (companies tend to come after Aliexpress vendors for obvious reasons), the shop still sells them under a different name (Visofree).
