Mascara is a must-have for many women because of its eye-opening, flirty effect. Cosmetics companies release
Semi-Permanent Salon Treatments:
Growth Stimulators: Latisse, the prescription ophthalmic solution that you apply to your upper lash line to stimulate growth, really works. Downside? You need to see a doctor to get it and it has some potentially weird side effects, like skin and eye discoloration.
Mascara Booster: This option still requires you to mess with mascara, but it’s an easy way to really amp up your lashes without expensive treatments or dealing with extensions. Ready to Wear Lash Extension is sold on HSN for $22.50. It looks like a mascara, until you open it. If you can imagine a tube full of pulverized feathers, that will give you some idea of the texture. To use, you put one coat of traditional mascara on your lashes, then a coat of the lash extension fibers (they need the mascara to stick). A final layer of mascara seals it all in. We tried this and got immediate Kardashian lashes--which could be good or bad, depending on your aesthetic. The fibers were a little messy, but brushed right off.
