I am really taking my words seriously when I said that 2018 is going to be the year of less roadshop brands, and more unknown/ not talked about brands. This new brand is called Noon’s up which they specializes in false lashes and lash glue. Buying fake lashes for asian eyes is always a hard thing, especially when living outside of Asia and seeing the lashes available in American drugstores. Its a struggle for sure since it is always way too long on us. Noon’s up wanted me to give their lash glue and false lashes a try and report back to you guys. Of course, in classic Christina style, I dissected their products down to a T (with tons of pictures of course!). Let’s check them out together shall we? Let’s go!
My first memories with false lashes was actually by an Korean company called Darkness. When I was in high school, there weren’t many cosmetic brands to choose from since Sephora didn’t hit Canada at that time. So all we got was department store brands, which was too expensive for a poor high school student, MAC and other American companies. The face shop was among the only other options and they carried the Darkness lashes. I remembered I walked home with a pair of their criss cross lashes but I ended up cutting it in half because I didn’t like the look of the whole strip. I actually LOVED the super natural look it gave my eyes and had a nice fairy flutter. I don’t usually wear false lashes on a day to day basis, but I have a whole chunk of my lashes the fell out and is growing out at the moment, so I do rely on falsies to make up for it.

Compared to something like the Duo lash glue, this one from Noon’s up is on a whole other level of hold. It claims it can hold up to 24 hours, and I definitely don’t doubt that. The glue takes about 1 minute for it to fully dry, enough time for you to play around with. After that 1 minute, you can still kind of apply your lashes to your lids. Think of it like this. When you get a flyer and there is a packet of a fragrance sample and they got that sticky stuff in the back. Yea, this stuff is kind of like that sticky stuff. Although the sticky level goes down a bit every time you touch it, it can still hold like crazy. I also like the fact that this comes with a brush and not a standard squeeze tube. This way, you can control the amount and get an even application.
I personally really enjoy the clear and don’t have a problem with it when I’m using it against dark liner. But I know there are people that prefer black for their lash glue. This one is definitely super dark and doesn’t dry down lighter either! I’m a little but too much of a nervous reck to be able to master the black lash glue hehe.
If you want to get the best of both worlds, you can also get the lash glue along with their false lashes. They sent me a couple of their models. To my surprise, they actually have an extensive line of styles which excites me!
As for the false lashes, there is two lines:
–M line: Intensifies & darkens lash line (for a slightly more glamorous look)
The M line has a thicker and darker band, which usually works well with more dramatic eye looks. Me personally, I would line my eyes with liner as well as darkening up my waterline before using this type of lash. But that is just personal preference.
3 categories under M line
1) Daily line (Kara, Tiffany, Emma, Ellie, Alice)2) Gorgeous line (Ivy, Audrey, Lucy, Mia)
3) Special line (Amy)
–K line: More natural and less artifical look (more for daily wear)
3 categories under K line
1) Daily line (Ella, Zoe, Elin, Daisy, Lily, Emily)
The single falsies come color coded by the length of the lashes. Pink is for 10 mm, navy is for 12 mm and green is for 14 mm which is super long! I’m honestly quite surprised that a Korean lash brand makes such long lashes since most Asian eyes have less eye to brow ratio to work with. But it is great in a sense that they can also cater to other ethnicity eye shapes as well!
Again, purple is for the models with 12 mm length. I personally LOVEEEE Audrey. It has that wispy lash look but still looks very natural with a bit of volume at the root.Alice: Slightly longer version of Ellie but a slightly wispy lash look

If you guys enjoy the more straight lash look, here is a side by side comparison of the three.And from the K line, I got these on hand :). I’m actually very impressed with the K line since I personally like a very thin band for everyday looks.
This one kind of reminds me of my beloved Aritaum idol lash in #6, the one where you can get in a pack of 6. It looks super natural but it looks best with little to no eye make up actually.
So I picked out the two that I really liked and tried it on for you guys. This pair is from the K line, Ella. It gives my eyes a really natural length and I can easily wear this without any other eye make up. Love it! The band is also super comfortable and light.
And here is Audrey from the K line. For some reason, I thought it would look way more dramatic but it actually looks very natural and darkens my lash line as well. If I really wanted to wear this for everyday, I would chop off the end part where it flares out and use it on the outer part of my eye.
Me personally, I really love Tiffany from the M line because it really reminds me of the first pair I ever had. I really want to recreate that lash look I had in high school hehe. I also really like Audrey (M line). It is seriously the prettiest lashes I have ever seen!! Although it is a little longer then the length I’d usually wear, because of the way it flares out and the fibers being so fine, it looks super natural on my eyes. And from the K line, Ella is definitely my go to for everyday wear. But if I want to up the glamour, I would turn to Jenny (from da block). Unfortunately at the moment, you can’t get this overseas but you may in the future so definitely watch out for them :D. This is almost an industry sneak peek.
