Where Does the History of Eylure Cosmetics Begin?
The history of Eylure begins way back in the 1940s in Britain, where two talented brothers working as makeup artists in the film industry grew frustrated with the poor quality of materials that they had to work with – especially considering that they were applying makeup for some of biggest stars of that time. Eric and David Aylott decided they would craft their own materials, and Eylure came into fruition initially for this purpose.
Starting out with their Eylure lashes and stick on nails, the goal of the two brothers was to discover new ways of enhancing natural beauty, complemented by exquisitely applied makeup. Their hard efforts did not go unnoticed either, because by the 1960s Eylure began producing its beauty products in the world’s first mass production factory for false eyelashes, in the Welsh city of Cwmbran. This massive growth in popularity led to successes such as Eylure eyelashes being featured in Vogue magazine, with celebrities like Dusty Springfield and Twiggy wearing these adhesive extensions.
Fast forward to the 21st century, and Eylure Cosmetics has continued to grow its customer base, as well as its reputability and variety of products. Still maintaining their 60s-inspired newspaper-like branding style, Eylure offers products for the false eyelash needs of just about any individual. Whether it be their cruelty-free Eylure Luxe Lashes, their subtle yet sophisticated Eylure Natural Lashes, their limited-edition faux mink Eylure Gilded Lashes, their buildable Eylure individual lashes, or their quick-apply Luxe Magnetic lashes, it is easy to discover the perfect set of falsies tailored just for you.
Eylure offers a multitude of eyelash collections, some of which are quite unique and branded seamlessly, featuring great quality selections. Some of our favorite collections include the Eylure Vegas Nay Lashes (especially the Eylure Vegas Nay Grand Glamour Lashes), the Eylure x Nicole Guerriero Lashes, and the Eylure Luxe Faux Mink Lashes (especially the Eylure Luxe Faux Mink Opulent lashes).

Eylure Luxe Magnetic Lashes
The Eylure Luxe Magnetic collection is a relatively new development for this innovative company. These lashes are an adhesive-less option for individuals that don’t want to bother with a sticky mess, or for those who are allergic to the chemicals normally found in false eyelash adhesives. As the name implies, magnetic lashes are applied through the use of a magnetic charge. For each eye there are two strips of lashes, one with a negative charge and another with a positive charge. When combined together, the two pieces hold onto your natural lash with the force of a gentle magnet. Once you are ready to take them off, you simply have to slide them away, but they will remain put for the duration of your wear.
For this reason, there is also less cleaning involved, because you won’t need to pull away dried strands of adhesive from the night before. The main con is that there is a bit of a learning curve for the application of magnetic lashes, but Eylure’s website offers a helpful step-by-step guide to make the whole process a lot smoother. Once you have established your own method for easily applying these falsies, everything gets a little simpler and they can be worn again and again for up to 15 uses.
Luxe Magnetic Baroque Corner:
The same lashes as the Baroque falsies that are mentioned in the next section, the magnetic version is a corner lash that is applied simply to the outer edges of the eye for that extra pop of definition. These Eylure Luxe Magnetic lashes offer a cruelty-free faux mink lash effect, meaning that they are lightweight and super soft, feeling comfortable throughout the entire period of wear.
“I feel confident trusting a false eyelash company that has been successful for more than 65 years. You can tell that Eylure have really mastered the art of making quality, affordable eyelashes for the everyday woman.”
Eylure Luxe Lashes
The Eylure Luxe collection is an interesting one, because it offers the appearance of a mink lash, but consists of synthetic, cruelty-free materials only. In this way, it serves as a great alternative for those who adore the way mink falsies make their eyes look, but don’t want to be harming any animals in the process. Handmade with a specialized silk-effect fiber, the Luxe lashes are insanely soft, feeling simply luxurious as they lightly rest on top of your natural lashes. Of all the available collections, this one is probably our favorite. It is timeless and leaves your makeup looking stunning, no matter the specific makeup style.

Where to Buy Eylure Lashes

This company knows how to make false eyelashes accessible for the everyday person, which also ties in with their affordable price tags and wide variety of choices. If you are not able to buy Eylure lashes at a nearby storefront, the easiest way to purchase them would be online at their official website, www.eylure.com.
Although this company offers plenty of top quality products to choose from, they do have some choices that are our go-to picks for specific purposes:
- To exaggerate your eyes: Eylure lashes Exaggerate No. 141 or Eylure lashes Exaggerate No. 143
- For romantic, dramatic lashes: Eylure lashes Dramatic No. 202
- To increase the definition of your eyes: Eylure lashes Definition No. 126
- To add lots of texture to your eyes: Eylure lashes Texture No. 117

“Their Luxe Magnetic false eyelashes are extremely innovative, making it easier than ever for anyone to apply falsies, especially for those of us that have sensitive eyes and cannot apply lash glue.”
Negative Thoughts About Eylure False Eyelashes
For those who are solely fans of mink lashes, they will need to look elsewhere, because Eylure’s selections are all cruelty-free, even the faux mink effect lashes. Likely, for this reason, their falsies are a bit heavier in weight than some of the pure mink lashes available on the market and can be felt subtly on the eyelid after application. Luckily, the eyes get used to this added weight rather quickly and they do not normally bother people, even when worn all night. Some of the Eylure lash types can be a bit stiffer than other comparable brands, but this is convenient if you want to have a good grip on the lash while you apply adhesive and later place it onto the eye.
Final Thoughts About Eylure Eyelashes
The main thing we completely adore about Eylure Cosmetics is the company’s ability to make every individual, no matter their background, feel included. Eylure false lashes are so affordable – they are one of the lowest priced options on the market – and the fact that they can be found in drugstores, as well as online and also at specialized makeup shops, makes their reach that much more expansive.
Additionally, it is refreshing to see a company that has specialized in false eyelashes from the get-go, not simply taking on this makeup element later on. Eylure has had decades to go through the trial and error process, and for this reason, they really have nailed down what works and what does not- so that their customers don’t have to.
On top of all this, they are also cruelty-free, which is appealing for those who are conscious about animal’s rights and want to do their part to protect this. We are feeling really quite satisfied with our hands-on experience of Eylure because they certainly have a ton to offer. We are excited to see in what direction Eylure Cosmetics will expand in the future – what new collaborations will take place and what type of products are set to be released.
