Paperself: False Lashes Made of Paper

We spotted these beauties at IMATS this year, and couldn't help but admire the intricate detailing.  Inspired by art of Chinese paper cutting, these are definitely statement lashes.  There are eleven styles available, some of which come with a bit of "symbolic meaning" -

Horses: symbolic of success
Peony: for happiness and good fortune
Peach blossom: a symbol of love and romance
Peacock: auspicious and lucky days
Butterfly: free, beautiful and sensitive
Clown: bring the whole happiness

Despite being made of paper, we're told that so long as you're gentle when you apply and remove them, they are reusable.  Available in two sizes, so you can accentuate the entire upper lashline or use as a detail accent to the eye, these are sure to get you noticed.  Simply beautiful.

Available from ASOS and the Paperself website, costing from £10 for a pair of small accent lashes.


  1. I love these so so much but i just cannot think when i would wear them!

  2. i keep seeing these on ASOS but not sure how i feel about them. i would rip them putting them on ha. but they are so cute!

  3. These are so pretty! I know there must be a lot of work gone into them but £10 a pair for paper does seem somewhat on the expensive side...

  4. i saw these too! but thought they were too delicate and gimmicky to buy.. IMATs post with pics coming up soon! =)
