--What does the promo say?--
"Kiss Haute Couture lightweight lashes not only look natural but feel natural. When used with the included applicator, you'll be amazed at just how easy applying lashes can really be."

 --Application-- On the back of the box there are helpful drawings of how to apply the lashes using the pink applicator they've included in the pack, as well as a booklet with more detailed instructions. I'm not exactly a false lash aficionado and it did take me a couple of goes to get them in the right place and not poke myself in the eye but all in all they're pretty straightforward. The glue was easy to apply although I didn't use mascara before applying the lashes, so I don't know if the glue would react with  mascara if you did. 
Instructions: 1) If needed, trim lash size to fit your eyes. 2) Apply Kiss adhesive to lash band: wait 30 seconds for adhesive to become slightly clear and tacky. 3) Using the applicator, apply lashes along natural lash line. Hold, allowing adhesive to dry completely.

As you can see from the photos, these lashes are quite 'BIG' and they are definitely for if you want to make a statement. They fit the eye pretty well but as mentioned, you can trim them down if you need to. Having worn them, I would suggest that you wear mascara on your normal lashes just so the colour is the same. These are unmistakably false lashes - I would only ever wear them for a big event like a prom or a dressy occasion as they basically take up half of my face, but they do have a nice look to them. Saying that, I would definitely be up for trying other styles of lashes in this range. 
These stay on for as long as you want them to, and they were easy to remove when required (though as always with these things, it depends on how much adhesive you put on).
--Value for money-- 
These are in line with other market values, and it's definitely good that you can use them more than once, thus increasing product value.
