Ultra long, voluminous lashes that last for four days? Yes Please.
We love the look of false eyelashes and inserts, but struggling with glue and a pair of steady hands every morning just isn’t realistic. When semi-permanant eyelash extensions came along, we jumped at the chance to try something that promised to achieve this look for up to three months. But again, it’s not a viable option for every day (eyelashes become thinner and even fall out with regualr use). So what’s a short-lashed girl to do?
Invest in the new Cherry Blooms Brush On Fiber Eyelash Extensions, which has created a huge beauty buzz in Hollywood, after being handed out in Oscar goodie bags (those celebs get all the best gifts).
Housed in easy-to-use mascara-style packaging, these extensions work by covering your lashes in tiny fibres that you set wih the accompanying mascara gel. Simply brush the gel onto clean lashes, then brush on the fibres before the gel dries and finish with a last coat of gel. One coat creates natural-looking long length, two-to-three coats creates a full, false lash effect. The fibres are made of natural materials, including beeswax and adhere to the lashes instantly, so there’s no waiting for mascara or glue to dry and you don’t need to spend hours fitting them to your eyeline, as you would with stick on versions.
The fibres simply wash off with warm water and a cottonwool ball, so your natural lashes aren’t damaged in the process. Plus, they won’t flake onto your skin, as some mascaras can, so you don’t need to worry about little black dots or smudges appearing around your eyes as the day goes on. The Cherry Blooms extensions can even be worn for up to four days before you need to wash them off, meaning we can cut a huge chunk out of our morning routines. Hurrah!
