KKcenterHK Lashes, Hair Extensions, and more oh my!

KKcenterhk125x200jpg banner

I was contacted by Maggie a PR at KKcenterHK asking if I would like to do a review for them. I am not very good at applying false lashes... well to the extent that I can do them quickly, but I figured what the heck I need to get better at it!

I picked out a box of lashes ES A24  to be exact, the website price for them is $5.40 and you get 10 pairs. They also have several other products ranging from Hair extensions to Shoes.

Note: excuse the bottom pair of lashes, I actually wore them :)

I didn't actually order from the site, it does seem easy to navigate though and I think the prices are good and they have a ton of variety, I've never purchased wigs but I would definitely be interested in trying their stuff sometime so maybe a future review of that will come around. :)

Shipping: ranges from $2.50 up to $17.87 depending on if you want a tracking # and/or express mail.

Packaging: nothing special about it just standard packaging, nothing was messed up though and the lashes were intact. 

Product: I really like the eyelashes, I had no issues applying them and I will definitely use them and they looked good on. I like they fact they have a lot of selection.

Would I order? Yes I definitely will place an order in the future, I'm interested in checking out their hair extensions and wigs and I do not own any wigs for different looks. :)
