[NEWS] Paper Eyelashes the New Trend?

For Paperself has taken the beauty of the traditional Chinese art of paper cutting and made it wearable. There are a total of five designs, each paying homage to a different Chinese symbol and the imagery behind it – from peach blossoms for love, to horses for success, or peonies for happiness.

And, at £12 a pair (or £10 for two pairs of the smaller versions), they’re reasonable enough to be worn without too much concern for their transitory nature. However, it would probably be best to avoid rain, swimming, or any occasion that induces tears (of either joy or rage) while wearing a pair.

Running mascara is bad enough, but watching paper horses disintegrate into mush and slide down your cheeks is quite another.

The series of works starts serial inspiration design from the Chinese paper-cutting art.The engrave visual effect of the works recur a slip of the traditional culture.
Eyelashes not only has been pass down the culture meaning of paper-cutting,
but also enrich the story of totem, to show the new fashion and sexy with the beautiful gesture.
Material: Paper
Designer: Ting Yu Wang

These are so cute! I would like to try them on but don’t think I’m confident to wear them out in public. xD. Not sure if you can re-use them and they are pretty expensive. :X

What do you guys thinnk? Would you wear these?

    For high fashion they would definitely be interesting, but for everday I don't think they're suitable.

    I like these! I'd wear them for a night out but if they're not re-usable then I wouldn't bother to buy them xD.

    Hey, randomly found your blog! Cute stuff!

    This paper lashes seem crazy and probably good for a photo shoot, but I don't think it's practical. I would hate it if the lashes just fell apart after only a few hours! They are pretty though. =D

    well, it'd look 'too much' on everyday use but I'd definitly would wear these for a night out.
    they would look stunning with smokey eyes~~

    but if they're not re-usable then I wouldn't bother to buy them since it's a bit pricey..

    They look nice, but probably too vulnerable for me to actually wear. It could be nice to have a pair for a funky occasion though 😛

    I love the peonies design, it's so detailed and simply beautiful. But I don't think I can find a way to wear them. 😡
