My first set of lashes & I love (loved) them. Given the price point, $18, I would say that while they are easy to put on & look AMAZING, a novice will likely not get nearly as many wears out of them due to not caring for them properly once removing. I got about 3 uses, but someone with more experience cleaning them, would get much, much more. I now use Ardell, but still love these/their look, the individual sections better. But Ardell are good & inexpensive. I'll try them again for sure once I have more experience under my belt!
