Ha I was combing through the fashion threads, saw the mascara one and was gonna post this. Next paycheck I'm so getting this. I wanted it back in October 08 when they came out with the first version for Christmas. It sold out so fast but they didn't reintroduce it until now.

Definitely the best way to try several excellent brands without spending a fortune.

After trying a million different products, I am hooked on Benefit's Bad Gal Lash. To be honest, I never would have bought it for myself: I thought it sounded like it would be way too dramatic for a daytime mascara. But I got a small tube as a free sample, so I tried it, and absolutely LOVED it. It really isn't too dramatic for daytime. It makes my lashes just perfect.

She says they are false lashes that are put on one at a time and stay on for about 3 to 4 weeks. They do look amazing. I would like to try that sometime.
You do know they superglue the lash to your own lashes, right? Then you can't wear mascara, and ou have to be really gentle with them. Oh, and the more you do the extensions, the more of your own lashes you will lose, which will lead to you having to use Latisse to grow more lashes.

Try Korres Deep Colour mascara (I use the grey/green color) or Prescriptives False Eyelashes... both are excellent, IMHO.

I like Clinique's Naturally Glossy Mascara, back when I wore makeup it was the only thing I would use. It worked well for a very natural look. I already have long, thick, dark, eyelashes though so I don't know how it would work on someone with thin or short lashes.

For a curl I use Avon's Heated Lash Curler and it works really well. I love it. To be honest I don't think any mascara alone can curl lashes. I mean, most are liquid so will they not generally weigh the lashes down? I never did understand how mascaras could curl your lashes. The only way I can get the curl is with the heated curler

It is one more step, but if you do it right (which isn't hard), then you shouldn't feel a thing or lose a lash

Generally that is true, but some of us DO have long lashes like that naturally.

Mine are stupid long, to where they hit the bottom of my eyebrows with mascara on (no matter the brand), and I am always brushing them against my glasses, and getting smudges on them cause of my lashes.
