Alright lovelies it’s Beauty Talk Tuesday and today i’m talking all things LASHES! Probably my most asked question from SnapChat and InstaStories are about my lashes so today i’m sharing my must have serum, mascara and also my past experience with eye lash extensions!
If you’ve asked on instagram or snapchat you girls know the answer the eyelash question is “no, I currently do not have eyelash extensions”. I actually had eyelash extensions 8 years ago, before all these lash salons started opening up. I did LOVE them but honestly they were super expensive (around $200 a set and then I think about $75 a fill about once a month if I remember correctly) and the upkeep was a bit much. Maybe things have changed now and they aren’t as expensive (let me know if you currently do them). I will say they really do make a big difference but my eyes would get itchy and then a couple months in I started having a random reaction to the glue they used. Not to mention when they start falling out they look a little CRAY until you get into to get a fill. All that being said I have been curious about trying them out again because maybe they use better glue now. The hard part is finding someone who makes them look natural. So to be continued on that!
But what I have been using for a last five years is This Eyelash Serum (also available HERE) and it has been AMAZING! I know there are million eyelash serums on the market today but I can only speak on the one I have personally been using. I first found this serum before I was pregnant with Ava by a YouTuber I love and trusted. Being that I have lighter eyes I was concerned about the serum changing the pigment of my eyes. She also had lighter color eyes and so I went for it and never looked back! I’ve mentioned it before but I also have CRAZY sensitive skin especially around the eyes so I started with just a small outer corner for a couple days to see if I would have a reaction and I didn’t! If you’ve been thinking about trying a lash serum I highly recommend THIS ONE!
You won’t start seeing a noticeable difference for about 3-4 weeks but all of a sudden BOOM you’ve got serious lashes! The only bummer is you legit have to use it RELIGIOUSLY! Even when you’ve achieved the length you want. As you go through your natural lash cycle and shed lashes you want to make sure they all look even, so using it continuously will help with that. You won’t grow new lashes so if you’re looking for fullness maybe opt for the extensions but let me tell you the length will make a HUGE difference. A tube is under $80 and will last you probably around 6 months. Now it is becoming harder to find and sells out pretty quickly at major retailers but you can also find it HERE. When I can’t track it down anymore This One will be my second choice to try as i’ve heard really good things. Lastly for you ladies asking about my favorite mascara…. I have a few in rotation but This One by Too Faced has been my go to for over 5 years now!
I hope this was helpful for you girls and please let me know if you have other questions about it and ill try to answer them for you! As always if you girls have any lash advice or products your loving myself (and i’m sure other readers) would love to hear!
