We talk about eyelashes a lot over here. It’s one of my obsessions, sorry. You know I was getting lash extensions for a while. I wrote about my experience, with some tips & tricks here… but to be honest, it just got too expensive. I tried some less expensive places but the quality of the extensions was not nearly as nice as the more expensive place, and getting them filled every three weeks or so was a) too time consuming and b) still too expensive.
But anyway. I tried something this week that really truly works and gave me some big fat long lashes. This is a three step process and takes a little longer in the morning but it is so worth it. Before I brush my teeth, I coat my lashes heavily with the fiber primer end of Lashem Double Trouble Mascara. It’s got these white fibers that adhere to your lashes, fattening them up and giving some extra length. After brushing my teeth, the fibers have dried and I add a few coats of the mascara side. The mascara that comes with it is just okay, so I also layer on a coat or two of my trusty They’re Real Mascara. The whole thing takes just a few minutes but seriously — my lashes have never looked better, sans extensions. I should note that the combo does not flake or smudge… I put it on at 9am and it’s still going strong at 9pm.
At night I have taken to using Peter Thomas Roth’s Lashes to Die for Turbo Serum. A few friends have recommended it to me and I haven’t seen results yet — but it takes four weeks and I just started last week. (I have also heard really good things about neuLASH.)
