#8 is drop dead gorgeous!
They say the eyes are the windows to the soul – it makes sense why makeup wearers place serious emphasis upon brightening and opening up the eyes. This effect can be achieved by various products, including false eyelashes, which tend to tie together an entire look and solidify its elegance. When it comes to false eyelashes, the market is overloaded with quality picks to choose from. It can feel frustrating and sometimes overwhelming to meet your needs when shopping for the right false eyelashes. Through some extensive research and testing of various eyelash products, we have managed to compile a comprehensive list of the 10 best false eyelashes of 2019, so that you can start your year off right by not wasting money on lashes that are poor quality or that you simply don’t feel confident wearing. In this article, we go a bit into depth about each of our lash picks, including why it stood out to us so that you can make the most informed decision possible next time you are browsing a false eyelash store.
1. Azlo Lashes – Sassy
Azlo Lashes is a cruelty-free company specializing in producing only top quality, animal-friendly false eyelashes. Based out of Los Angeles and San Francisco, the innovators behind Azlo Lashes have managed to produce some incredible falsies.
For this reason, their lash in the style ‘Sassy’ has topped this list, because we feel like it is capable of meeting any individual’s lash needs. All of Azlo’s false lashes are made from the cruelty-free lash fiber, known as silk, but the material actually has nothing to do with the silkworm.
This fiber feels lightweight yet still durable, which is an excellent combination for any truly comfortable set of false eyelashes. We chose Sassy because of its versatile design, one which could be suitable for many, and the fact that it is a brilliant day-to-night transition lash – you can wear Sassy casual, or dress this pair up for a more put-together, formal appearance.
Features of the Azlo Lashes Style ‘Sassy’:
- Well balanced, medium volume lashes for all times of day
- 3D, crisscrossed design, with a slight lengthening at the outer corners
- A fun, flirty, and dazzling design
- Complements monolid eyes, hooded eyes, and even smaller eye sizes
2. Artemes Lashes – Love Shady
With an A-list clientele, many celebrities, makeup artists, and individuals have fallen in love with Artemes Lashes. Artemes designs top-notch false eyelashes made of real mink fur, synthetic fiber, and even horse hair, and their falsies are useable up to 25 times, which is superb. Although this brand has a whole plethora of stunning styles, one of our all-time favorites is ‘Love Shady’, which Gal Godot wore at Comi-Con not long ago.
Features of the Artemes Lashes Style ‘Love Shady’:
- Made from real mink fur
- Medium to high volume lashes to add a bit of drama and intensity to your look
- Evenly distributed hairs with slightly shorter hairs on the outer corners
- Subtly crisscrossed design for the perfect flutter
- 7-14 mm in length and black in color
3. Esqido Lashes – Naughty & Nice
Esqido Lashes has a rather impressive way of making luxury style false eyelashes that seem to be in all the right designs. A lot of customers feel quite satisfied shopping with Esqido, and one of their most popular styles is a design we quite happen to like as well.
It’s called Naughty & Nice, the perfect name for this sultry pair of falsies that can be worn for a posh and clean-cut look but then also amped up with the right makeup to appear super sexy. For these reasons and many others, Naughty & Nice has made our list of best fake eyelashes.
Features of the Esqido Lashes Style ‘Naughty & Nice’:
- Made from super soft synthetic fibers for a cruelty-free choice
- Full volume lashes that are long in length (7-15 mm)
- Very sultry and dramatic lashes for those who enjoy stepping their lash game up a notch
- Outer lashes packed with plenty of volume to elongate the eyes, and more subtle, refined inner corners for elegance
- Can look cute or sexy, youthful or mature (versatile lash)
4. Velour Lashes – Serendipity
One of the most popular high-end fake eyelash brands, Velour Lashes also tops our list not only because of its well-known name but also because we love this company’s lashes.
Sold at beauty stores like Sephora, as well as online, Velour focuses on designing and selling solely lashes, and this specialization is part of what makes their styles beyond excellent because they aren’t spreading themselves too thin.
One of our all-time favorite designs in the ultra natural and wispy ‘Serendipity’, a classic first date lash that you can also wear to the office. This lash is a bit more dramatic than an everyday wear, natural lash, but if you’re in the mood to spice things up just a tad extra, Serendipity is an ideal pick.
- Features of the Velour Lashes Style ‘Serendipity’:
- Medium to low volume lashes that are natural and lightweight
- Made from real mink fur, so not suitable for vegans
- Ideal office lashes, or as a slightly more dramatic everyday lash
- Lash length of 6-11 mm
- Invisible lash band for a seamless look and extra added comfort
5. Tarte Lashes – Goddess
Back in 2016, one of the world’s biggest makeup brands decided to embark on their own eyelash journey, releasing a line of cruelty-free falsies for their glamorous clientele. Since then, a lot of people have fallen in love with Tarte eyelashes and they regularly sell out and need to be restocked. We are big fans of Tarte in general, which includes their eyelashes, but we do have our favorites. ‘Goddess’ is a radiant style that amps up your look, bringing tons of volume and dimension to your lash line.
Features of the Tarte Lashes Style ‘Goddess’:
- Multi-layered medium to full volume design that leaves your eyes looking bright and flawless
- A perfect design for weddings, special events, important parties, and important meetings
- Helps create that all-over glow
- Synthetic fiber, cruelty-free lashes that are lightweight and comfortable
- Complements a smokey eyeshadow, dewy foundation, all over glow makeup look
6. Tatti Lashes – TL19
When two young, British entrepreneurs from the beauty industry started Tatti Lashes, their intention was to bring quality products to a not-all-there market. They did just that, and today Tatti has become a massive company, with celebrities such as the Kardashians, Nicki Minaj, Ciara, Jeffree Star, Christina Aguilera, Chrissy Teigen, Cardi B, Paris Hilton, and many others wearing their designs. Offering mostly mink fur lashes, one of our all-time favorite styles from this brand is the TL19.

Features of the Lilly Lashes Style ‘Mykonos’:
- Made from 100% real mink fur

7. Lilly Lashes – Mykonos
Created by reality star and beauty guru Lilly Ghalichi, Lilly Lashes has grown to become a widely sought after company, especially by elite individuals in Hollywood, as well as makeup artists in the business.
Celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Kylie Jenner, and Christina Aguilera have all been spotted wearing Lilly Lashes, with the 3D Mink collection often being the most popular. The style ‘Mykonos’ was released as a collaboration between Lilly Lashes and Sephora, and it ranks in as one of the top 3 mink false eyelashes sold by Lilly.
Mykonos is regularly worn by celebrities like Shantel Jackson and Pia Mia, but aside from its A-list support, this pair of falsies is quite stunning for a number of reasons. This pair is a bit dramatic, with a somewhat messy, laid-back, and choppy shape, which acts as the perfect pairing for a minimalistic, glowy makeup look featuring plenty of highlighting, contouring, and sculpting.
8. KoKo Lashes – Soho
Specializing in predominantly 60s style false eyelashes, KoKo Lashes has a way of bringing its customers back to the early days of falsies – the times of Twiggy and her famous black-fringe look.
KoKo Lashes eyelashes are made from 100% sterilized human hair and top quality, cruelty-free synthetic fibers, making these products completely suitable for vegans and animal lovers.
KoKo Lashes offers a rather diverse collection of false eyelashes, including some accent and lower lash options, but there are 3-4 definitive pairs that seem to sell like hotcakes. ‘Soho’ is not one of these extra popular styles, but it is, even so, one of our personal favorites.
This style gives off a barely-there yet still super vintage and glamorous feeling.

- Clear band design makes lashes seamlessly blend in with your natural lash line

Eylure has been around for an extremely long time, with this mega lash brand being one of the top 3 eyelash brands in the world. First arriving during the 1940s, Eylure was one of the first companies to produce fake eyelashes, and it has only grown massive since then.
One of the best parts about Eylure is not only the affordable prices but also the accessibility of their products. In most places around the world, you can easily discover Eylure Lashes at your local drug store, beauty shop, or pharmacy, which means you don’t have to worry about ordering online and waiting for a shipment to arrive.
