I purchased these from my local Sally Beauty store, and ended up love love loving them! Marlena is right when she says there is no annoying/obvious black line holding the lashes together. The 'invisa-line' feature makes the look of the lashes more natural and easy to cover with some of MAC's Fluidline. Also, the lashes are not too long, and tend to blend easily with your natural lashes. With a little bit of Duo glue, these suckers stay on all day and really made my eyes pop. Two thumbs (or should I say 'winks') up!
