I’ve been toying with the idea of getting a lash lift or eyelash extensions recently. So far, I haven’t done it. I’m honestly afraid I’ll become addicted and it’s expensive and time-consuming. I’m also slightly worried all my lashes will fall out and I’ll be forced to continue to get them as a result. I’d justify it as a time-saving hack but let’s be serious, it takes a minute to apply mascara.
(Should I just suck it up and get extensions or a lift? Is it really worth it? Those of you who have gotten them, lmk!)
For those of you who are on the fence re: extensions like me or are between extensions, I can’t recommend this cheap drugstore mascara more. Working at a magazine, I get lots of beauty products to test out so I’ve been lucky enough to try just about every mascara, from the super high end stuff to the more budget buys. There are lots of good ones for different effects (curling, thickening, lengthening) and I can totally write another post on that so let me know if you’re interested, but this Maybelline Total Temptation mascara is the first one that lengthens and thickens and gives a slight curl. So much so that I have received a lot of compliments on my lashes recently, something that has never happened in my life before. Seriously, I don’t have terrible lashes but they’re not exactly anything to write home about either … until now. Someone even asked if I got a lift, which I take as the ultimate compliment.
The best part is that it’s cheap and you can buy at any drugstore. Do you have any other secrets for making your lashes look amazing? Should I take the plunge and get a lift or extensions? Should I write more about my favorite beauty products and routines or stick to fashion and motherhood? Lmk!
