Saw a silly looking set on a lady working in Wal-Mart today. Almost got caught by her (she was selling phone and internet) as I accidentally paused to notice her lashes.

I learned how by watching a Youtube video. My own lashes are sparse after chemotherapy. It takes practice. I buy cheap packs that look pretty natural at Ulta. They are $9.99 per pack of three. You can reuse them, too.

You have to put mascara on and curl the lashes first so that the lashes have something to sit on top of. Then you put a fine line of glue on and let it sit for 30 seconds. If you don't do this, they won't adhere. The more you do it, the easier it gets.

I buy Eyelure #31s.

I’ve worn them once. At a wedding - the individuals. It looked nice but not really me. I may be tempted for a special occasion.

I've never worn them. My lashes are dark so mascara is really all I need.

My daughter paid for her "girls" and me to have our makeup professionally applied for her wedding. The makeup person offered lashes. A couple of the girls had them applied. I did not after watching my sister look very uncomfortable in her false lashes at her daughter's wedding. Sister has shorter and lighter lashes than I do so I'm not surprised she tried them out.

I gave up on them after a date pointed out something is in my champagne glass.

Women wearing false eyelashes reminds me of the old “Mothra” movies. When Mothra flew, her great wings caused huge wind turbulence damage.

Sorry, but the huge eyelashes look clownish.

I have never worn them. The popularity of these so called "lash bars" astounds me. The fact that women voluntarily spend hundreds of dollars every couple of months so to make the hair on their eyelashes look like it's thicker than it really is blows my mind. My old coworker used to pay $120 every six weeks to have the aesthetician weave the fake rainbow colored lashes in with her real ones and make them look thicker, fluffier, and more colorful. Why give money to these people for your eyes to look like they are growing caterpillars?

I donít wear them. The couple of people I noticed who had them looked terrible.

They both had this thick strip on the lid which I guess is where the glue goes to attach them. It looked so unnatural, plus the lashes were so thick.

You ever seen those black, furry caterpillars? Thatís what the lashes looked like.

I've only ever known one woman who could rock fake eyelashes. The rest of the time, I think they look ridiculously fake.

Never. The world will just have to accept my natural lashes.
