I got into a huge conversation about false eyelashes over the weekend. We talked about brands, which kind work best (individual vs. strip), colored and price. I’d say the trait that derived the most talk was price. We’ve all seen ones that are priced at a few dollars all the way up to about $25 and even more if you go for those mink ones. Out of the 6 of us, only 2 would pay upwards of $10 for a pair. Driving home, I couldn’t understand why you would not want to invest in a nice pair of lashes as I usually get 3 or 4 wears out of a strip, easy. But I guess how many times you wear them and the fact that a few of the girls at the table did not consider this; they thought they were one time wear. Here’s the way I’m able to get so many wears – I make sure my whole eye look including mascara, is done before applying a strip. That way when I remove them at the end of the day, I don’t have to put in a lot of elbow grease when cleaning each in some makeup remover. Sometimes I use a little mascara and the lash curler to infuse the strip to my lashes but not often.
So which brand did I tout at this get together? ROBERT REESE BEAUTY (formerly Xtended Beauty) Eyelashes & Adhesive. I can’t quite figure out the reason these are so easy to apply but I think the curve of each was just made for my eyes only! Hardly any adjusting needed and only $9 pair @ reeserobertbeauty.com.
