Actually, the ease of application is one of the things that's most impressed me. I HATE trying to apply false lashes! It's such a fiddly palava, and then I find the look is always so fake - fine if you're on TOWIE, perhaps, but not the look I tend to go for. These brush on extensions, on the other hand, could not be simpler (or quicker) to apply, and they create a much more natural effect. I would say the look is "Wow, that girl has long eye-lashes but they're not so long that they look unnatural", which is ideal, don't you agree?
It was a little trickier to do my bottom eye-lashes, but they're always more awkward, aren't they? As you mainly want to focus on the tips of your lashes when applying the lash extensions, you then have to finish with a coat of normal mascara, not just to get to the roots of your lashes but also to seal the extensions. And removal is just as simple as application - just use your normal make-up remover.

Currently at a price of £27.99 from Boots, it's perhaps not the most student-friendly of beauty products - I'm tempted to steal the madre's but imagine she may just notice - but I suppose you have to consider how long it would last. If you go through a lot of pairs of falsies usually, the brush-on lash extensions may work out as more cost-effective. I have to say, I'm extremely tempted to buy some... I tell myself I'd only use it for special occasions, but realistically, I want extra long lashes every day! What do you think?
