FABULOUS LASHES FOR A NIGHT
I’m so late with this review, but I knew I had to share with you guys my faux lashes experience. On Halloween I wanted to give the wow!! I usually don’t put on a full costume for Halloween, but this year I decided to be a sexy geenie (tastefully) and It was so much fun getting to be someone else for a night! All of the pieces from the costume came from my closet, except the sheer jumpsuit from American Apparel that sparked the idea. Next year…it will be Gaga! You guys better watch out.
So here’s where the lashes come in. I’ve attempted to apply them myself, and it just never worked for me. The glue gets everywhere…and the lashes end up sticking to my fingers–it’s just a complete mess! So I enlisted my mom to help me apply NYX Fabulous Lashes in Lash Implant (EL 111) ($4.50). These lashes are super-dramatic (hence the name), and perfect for Halloween. The package says you’re able to reuse them up to 10 times, which I would say is pretty good. It also comes with a little tube of glue. The only thing that it’s missing is an applicator, because the tip of the glue is just too big. So Rahiel advised me a while back to first apply the glue to a toothpick, then to the lash–which made it A LOT easier.
I will also say you have to put a thick layer of glue on the lash because it dries quickly and you want the lash to stay put all night. Nothing is more unattractive then a hanging lash. Of course, I did feel a bit of heaviness on my real lashes, but they stayed in place all night, and I was happy with the results. It definitely gave me the dramatic effect i wanted for the night.
Has anyone else tried Fabulous Lashes? I’d love to here your story!
Pros: Inexpensive; cute packaging; comes with the glue; many looks to choose from; stayed in place
Cons: Difficult to put on myself (but this could just be me); need an accompanying toothpick to apply
